This isn't the end of the clean up. Everyone that was around during the Kovanes scandal needs to go. There is still some cleaning left to do. And the council needs to stay out of it and out of his way.

I feel bad that he lost his job. Why didn't he speak up when Kovanes was doing the town dirty. Was he so close to it he didn't see it? The man ain't that stupid. Shoulda blown the whistle dude. Shoulda blown the whistle.

You couldn't be more right! This guy is a complete tool. I wonder if his good ole buddy Bill Underwood will have a spot for him up in lovely Belle Glade or maybe he can land a position as a consultant with Tom Willi.

Shimun, Nolen and some others should also GO! Talk of Rayson also going - too much refernces by him to politics! And, other things. How could an attorney for the Town not be well informed about the latest debacle, i.e., the YYBC (Club Eden)matter placed on the 6-4-08 Agenda? WHY was Shimun ABSENT from THAT Council meeting?

I've heard it said that life's greatest satisfactions include getting the last laugh, having the last word, and paying the last installment.

Is there another Pines employee about to join Davie?

Why not just make the move and change the name to DAVIE the Pine North or Good-ole buddy Town.

I think it is time for Shimun to go, or I guess Council wants to wait until he destroys the whole town. The town has warded off adult entertainment establishments for years, Shimun doesn't want them in Pines, that is where he lives, so he is sending them all to Davie. Shimun has done nothing but rip this town apart since he was hired. How much is concil going to stand by and let this ice man do what he is doing. The past firings of Dipitrillo, Peters and Ordway was a telling sign that shiman's mind was not right when he let 3 good people go. that one will never set right with me. Now Cohen may have had it coming, I think he and Russell Muniz definitely knew what Kovanes was doing, afterall they signed the checks. Oh, and also the ladies that are still in the T.A. office, talk about hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil...Lori and Maria were Kovanes's friends...outside the office as well as inside the office. Maria also tried to pawn off her old maid daughter with Kovanes...all too incestuous.

Shimun is a loser, he has no resources of his own so he pulls them from the only other source he knows, Pines. Wake up council, we need a leader that can pull from his OWN resources, not someone that covers his ass and uses anyone that is available to him.

Cohen and Underwood disliked each other as much as anyone can. I'm sure there is no love lost there, Cohen and Mark Alan were the buds, I'm sure Cohen will be calling mark Alan wherever he might be. Underwood was used as a scape goat because he was the whistle blower. everyone ducked their heads while Underwood took all the heat. Underwood saved Davie from Kovanes and the powers that be knew it so they had to get rid of him. They certainly didn't want to look stupid, so Underwood took all the heat, think about it people, why would you fire someone that turned Kovanes in?

Does Mark Alan still work for the town? Thought they broke up that gang.

I never understood why they let Underwood go before any of the others. He may have also had dirty hands.

We should all forward this to the Town of Davie Town Council.

Russell Munez is from Pines and here's the kicker, he is still driving the Durangos that were purchased by Kovanes to silent the co-workers of his no good.
