Strike back. Lob grenades at the parking lot when it gets too noisy. This is what I did, and I now enjoy three squares a day and fecal incontinence from my numerous "boyfriends". Aren't there any more pressing problems for retirees to worry about then blaming others for bad choices they made in property purchases? Move. You are rich. Sell you place and move to the utopia where money doesn't corrupt and people in positions of authority only make decisions based on what it right rather than who you know or who they know. The place where that occurs, last time I checked, was not on this planet. Do you have enough in your bank account for Spacex?

To the Winstra's.

The Town committees only care about one thing; getting more blessed sales tax money so they can waste it on foolish things like the mess in Bond Park. You should have hired a lawyer and threatened a lawsuit against the over-built motel next to you. That may have pursuaded the board to uphold their ordinances which are usually ignored for reasons of personal gain.

Isn't it a shame, though, that residents have to either contemplate hiring a lawyer in order for ordinances and zoning to be upheld. What we have if town gov't by cronyism and variance. It seems that no matter how the board changes (glacially) over time with some members being replaced, the results are always the same. Mayor Pinkham is a real embarrassment - the day he retires or passes on will be a blessing for this town...but another equally poor replacement will rise from the muck.

One can yell and holler all they want about "the retirees" or the "downtown business people" who "have control" of the town, but it's the vast majority of ignorant, mouth-breathing locals who sit on their butts and don't get involved or vote who are to blame for allowing such a minority to lord over them......I've tried voting for new blood and those having differing visions in town elections, but it's like pissing upwind...
