Don't get too squirmy quite yet; the license commision may have punted this mess over to the State; but the State is still investigating matters here. And, the Jury is still out.

Since we are using the football analogy here (with the punting comment) Let's face it; the Siomos Clan has fumbled the ball here. And, I am hoping for an interception. An interception of the liquor license over to someone who is willing to play the game fair and square.

Nice work Paula Owen on this article! Thanks for following this story!

There is something wrong with you AAA. I do not have an issue with this bar. My issues are with the illegal parking in the towing zone that hampers the ability of the emergency vehicles from responding to save lives! The illegal parking also creats a very hazardous situation for other cars and pedestrians.

In regards to who owns the place, it doesn't matter to me as long as they are a biding by the same laws that every other bar owner is forced to. To tell you the truth, I do have an issue with the license commission. I feel that they are biased as they do give favoritisms to some while they go after the other bar owners.

This same board went after Venues if they sneezed inside instead of outdoors! The way I remember it, they mentioned the food license of Venues and the outside permit issues! When JRs is found in violation of these offenses the board turns a blind eye.

And if you want my opinion on the liquer license, i say yes it needs to be investigated. From what is stated the corporation was dissolved in 2001. Every year an application is filed and I would think that it is required to make notice of any changes concerning corporation status and ownership status.

The board states "this must of been an oversight"! Really?? Why didn't he state this about Venues? I feel that this board should be dissolved. As I have mentioned the unconstitutional statements from this board should bring about change of the current members.

I was brutally attacked by a patron of this bar and the son of it's owner. I was threatened and falsely charged due to the fact that this person is a police officer during work hours. The Facts of this case will never change as I was brutally attacked, I did not fight back as I took the punches as best I could to minimize damage to my body. I was almost killed out in front of JRs, THIS IS FACT1!

You have an issue with everyone, your an outsider. Go back to Boston where you belong, unless you have issues there to. Just accept the fact that you went looking for a fight, got one , got a real "@ss whoppin'". You lost one court case, about to lose another and don't have a chance in hell of becoming mayor.

Venues was bagged because they totally misrepresented themselves with a half a** business plan that old man Bourque called "fantastic". They were granted a license to open a resturant but there was never food sold there. Combine the fact that the "owner" was a latin king and the clientele made it look like a parole party and the fun began.

"your an outsider"

WTF does that mean? Really? Are you really saying if you're not born here you don't belong and have no say? What generation are you? 3 at most. And before that you were from somewhere else.

I'm saying Lynch has no say, based on all his rants about Fitchburg and it's police. It's obvious Lynch is unfamiliar with the city, if he was he wouldn't come up with these stupid idea'a that will bankrupt the city. On top of the his plans for the city and the FPD, it would cost the taxpayers millions in legal fees. He is an outsider who wants to make Fitchburg something that it used to be, an industral mecca. There are many mayors that were not born or brought up in Fitchburg. Mayor Wong was not born in Fitchburg but she work for the city for several years. All past mayors have had long ties with the city. I lived in the city for 40 years moving away 5 years ago, I have propery there and have a large family still living in the city. On top of all this he is a convicted felon and can't, by law, of holding the mayors office.

I am not going to answer to your ignorant "outsider" comments. In reference to your LIE concerning the incident, let me clue you in. I DID NOT GO LOOKING FOR A FIGHT; I DID NOT FIGHT. I WAS BRUTALLY ATTACKED AND BEATEN CLOSE TO DEATH. I DID NOT EVEN DEFEND MYSELF AS I TOOK THE PUNCHES WHICH WERE MANY TO MY RIBS AND TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD. MY ATTACKER DID GET A FEW PUNCHES DIRECTLY TO MY FACE BUT I TOOK ALL OTHE RPUNCHES TO MY SIDE.

I did not lose a court case. I am preparing to file further charges as well as an investigation into the "closed' magistrate hearing. The evidence was overwhelming that I was attacked and that the "off duty, unknown "officer was lying.

What has happened to David Gonzalez and myself is NOTHING short of pure corruption and extremely illegal. And YES connections to the Worcester house of corrections will be investigated as I almost died as well as David Gonzalez. My heart and lung medications were withheld for over four days. Our current expenses due to this incident are roughly $15,000 and counting. The truth will prevail even if it takes the loss of many jobs, from corrections, the court and police personel. The investigation is growing and including more individuals.

Lying to Federal investigators is a crime and always carries jail time!! All investigations will be done under oath. And just for an update, to the court personel that sent me a letter in 2002 and then again in recent weeks whom is connected directly to individuals at the FPD, you will be rightfully fired. I am sure that Federal authorities will allow you to cooperate in order to avoid jail time and the loss of your pension.

Power can corrupt and this corrupt power can always be clearly seen. I am 100% innocent. My family has been greatly effected by this corruption. The FPD should be investigating accusations that I have made as I have physical proof which I have presented to them and maded them aware of instead of investigating my familys business with city hall which will be questioned also.

Good morning, Readers. I have a quick update on the latest happenings over at JR's.

As many of you may already know; Jr's Pub has held cruise nights on Wednesday and Friday nights for the past 4 or 5 years running. And, these cruise nights typically included totally baricading off North Street at Main Street; along with parking old jalopies on North Street itself, smack dab between the two "No Parking Tow Zone" signs. And, the sidewalk in front of the Fire Station was typically filled with 20 or 30 illegally parked motorcycles. The fun and merriment included loud music playing outside; at many times in direct violation of the Cities noice ordinances. The night was filled with the sound of loud exhaust systems; screeching tires and the smell of burnt rubber; as patron after patron blasted away for the evening; not only across the parking lot; but at times on North Street and even down Main Street itself. And apparently; as this all played out; it was not unusual for Chuckles The Cop himself to stand proudly beaming; like the father of a Little Leager who had just hit his first home run in the winning game. The grand finale of the evening was a high horsepower display of exceleration; at times right down North Street itself.

But, my sources inform me that last night's action was a far cry from all of that. There was apparently a small gathering of old vehicles; parked properly off the street. The music was low and seemed to be coming from either inside the bar itself; or maybe even an ancient AM radio in someone's dusty old dashboard. The vehicles leaving for the night exited JR's parking lot at safe and sane speeds. It may have been a rumor; but I heard that the big event at the end of the night was counting to see who had the most keys on their keyring. And, potential future events may include the "Who has the longest dipstick" competition along with the "who has the fuzziest fuzzy dice" show down. There is even talk of holding the "who has the most accurate tire gauge" debate.

I am concerened here. Real concerned. If the management of JR's can't come up with SOMETHING that will keep the crowds coming back; the crowds may move on all together. And, after last nights snooze fest over at JR's' even the weekly quilt making meeting for the over 100 year old crowd down at the senior center promises more action.

By the way; my sources tell me that they did see one lone motorcycle parked illegally on the Fire Station sidewalk; almost appearing as a symbolic act of defiance by JR's management.....

I drove through there last night at around 6:15 an the parking lot was full of old cars and there were 3 motorcycles parked across the street on the sidewalk. There appeared to be 20-30 people outside of the bar on the side, one can safely assume there were more inside.

At 6:15 on a Wednesday I think any bar would call that a success.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAH AHAAHAH.Close to Death? you are the biggest BS artist. Where are the pitures? Instead of fighting your battle on this forum why didn't you just go to the T&G or Sentinel with pitures of the badly beaten person that you speak of? Do you remember? you charges against Siomos ere thrown out of court, thats a loss in my book. So now your threating to file more charges against everyone else involved? So your saying the FPD threatened and intimidated a officer of the court from another jurisdiction, that why you lost your case? You need alot more than heart and lung medication. I'm wondering if the state election committee should be notified so as to check into your campaign finances to make sure that the funds that you are solicting on your facebook page are properly recorded and spent. I don't think they would like it if you used campaing funds to pay your legal fees. And why hasn't you buddy Gonzalas filed charges yet, what is he waiting for? Again, you have let your family down, not the FPD. Stop blaming everyone for your problems, take responsability for your actions.

Not sure that last bit holds true in this state. SOme states allow a petition to hold office while others (Texas) specifically exclude it. Some consider the completion of the mandatory sentence as proper restitution.

Good Morning Readers,

I noticed that a couple of things have suddenly changed overnight here on Topix Forum Fitchburg:

1) Some Posters IP addresses have changed. In my case; I went from Bellingham to Holliston. Many others have changed as well (side note: anyone posting using my name from any IP address besides Holliston is not me; for example Civil Service Supporter posts using my name on a regular basis).

2) The story regarding the Mass ABCC moving forward with a hearing involving JR's Pub's liquor license has suddenly just vanished from this site. So, I dug down and I brought this story back up; since it is part of the same ugly mess.

I believe that the hearing between the State ABCC and JR's Pub is scheduled for July 17th or 18th. In other words, within the next few weeks. The case involves a defunct corporation holding the liquor license for JR's for more then a decade; and then somehow selling the liquor license for a dollar to the brother-in-law of our favorite F-burg lawman; Chuckles The Cop. Just how in the hell a corporation that doesn't even exist was allowed to sell it's liquor license certainly defies logic. And, it raises a red flag in my book. This case also involves JR's Pub apparently serving underage college students; and it also appears that Chuckles The Cop may have not disclosed that he had close ties to JR's Pub; as required by law.

This story may have been somehow yanked down on one of these links; but I will try my hardest to keep it alive here on F-burg Topix Forum. After all; when it was brought to my attention that Chuckles The Cop was bending the rules over at JR's; but telling people "there is nothing you can do about it; I am a cop"; I fiqured that it was time to keep the pressure on him here on Topix Forum Fitchburg....

Don't believe a word this impostor is saying. What makes more sense-my IP address being Holliston, Bellingham, or Fitchburg, where I really live? Of course, Fitchburg. I AM THE BONAFIDE DARN TOOTIN. This muckraker is trying to get all the credit for the work I'VE been doing all these years. I'm the one who had the pizzing contest with you-know-who over something dumb, and I'm the one who should get all the credit for being Obsessive Compulsive and Narcisistic. That's right, folks, me. I'm the real McCoy here.

Just ask either one of us a cop-hater question, and see who gets it correct.

I HATE COPS MORE.

Didn't the board mention that Venues didn't have a permit for outside seating? Didn't bumbles get closed for no workers comp on the bartenders?
There is no way that a person can have a liquer license under a corporation that does not exist with the tax man. A liquer license for $1? Where can I get one for $1?
Who heard this pub owner state that there is nothing that they can do to him due to the fact that he is a cop? And this is the same guy who signed his name on a permit for another person? If this is fact then maybe he can get away with what he wants.
Who told you that he stated this and in front of who else?

I don't want to name any names on THAT subject; but let's just say that I have an extremely credible witness who is willing to swear under oath that Chuckles The Cop told him "there is nothing you can do about it; I am a cop".

I can bring this witness forward; if and when it is needed.....

I am interested in this witness as I am sure that the FBI would be interested in the witness also.
