It didn't take long for the fire house of cards to start disintergrating into griping and moaning. Time for the town to step in and put it right. Big Changes coming boys!

The only thing that our current officers have to gripe about is why you are still around. Our dept is the BEST that it has been EVER and all you do is bitch about your clothing allowence. Come around once and a while or show up on a drill or call, then may be people will take you seriously. Gary Card is off to a great start and I am sure that he will do just as well if not better than Donny did. When you actually lift a finger to help is when you can state your opinon, until then, shut the hell up, both you and your son! your nothing but a cancer in our dept! Get the hint and leave!

Could some one explain why Jeff is allowed at the firehouse bar if he is the troublemaker he is portrayed to be on Topix. Bars are allowed to ban problem patrons. Why tolerate a member if they dont pull their weight.

He drinks because the Firemen running the bar are drunks also. You see the some people stagger out each night. You can walk be and look in the window. The Firemen better control the bar better because the Police don't. They allow the drunks to drive even though they can hardly walk.

The Stanhope Fire Department is a joke that writes itself. How many chiefs have there been in the last 5 years? How many in the 5 years before that? Just sayin'.

Listen, We all know that the only reason you are still a member is that the administration, at the time did not have the right lawyer to fight the crazy law suit. They got bad advice and kept bad records, but that does not mean that you was right, it just means that you won due to a technicality. We had to take you back, but since you have been back, all you does is start trouble and stir the pot where it does not need to be stirred. You have made it perfectly clear that you are only there to bust balls. By law, there is nothing that we can do to get rid of you, but it doees not mean that we have to let you get to us. We are better, stronger and smarter then ever. And for the record, Jeff, the only reason that you were Chief as long as you were, is because no one else wanted the position. You and boog corrupted that dept, and it has taken us this long to make things right. The last thing we need to is to ever have you in a position of office again! Anyone that thinks we are not better off without you should have their head examined.

This whole conversation makes me nervous for those you guys are working so hard to protect, serve and rescue. I'm not sure this gives the local people much confidence if you guys are fighting on a public forum. You're better than that.

i can understand where your coming from. but i also don't blame people wanting to defend what someone else is TRYING to tear down. can't just let someone publicly tell lies and not want to defend it.

Dont misinterpret what is going on. The Stanhope Fire Dept is Solid! There are no internal problems within the ranks. The people that are bitching and causing problems are the ones that never do a damn thing anyway. The Officers are focused and well trained, and the membership is still positive. The "do nothing" drunks always make a stink for the first few months of the year, but they eventually fade back into the beer keg.......I just wish that they would go away already.

Believe me guys, I don't think one bad apple spoils a bunch. However, not many people feel the same in certain situations. All I was getting at is that there is a place for discussions that have a negative light. I didn't know of any post someone wrote that started this conversation or what happens behind the scenes. The best example I can think of, recently, is the backup QB for the Jets and how he spoke publicly about his team on a radio interview. That's just not good business. As someone who takes similar risks as you guys to do my job I can understand the idea that those who bust their butt are well and highly trained. But when I have a guy in my unit who is causing an issue I can't see myself publicly bashing him. There has to be a way to rid a guy who is causing distress and problems in the firehouse.....otherwise wouldn't it get to a point that it becomes a safety concern for himself or others?

Once again the spin continues. Is it wrong to see something and comment on it? We support Jeff. He is only trying to protect the department that he built. Is it wrong to stop the favoritism and allowances for the "special boys"? The Card Sharks may think that nobody is watching but we are. How many times was he elected chief? Not because nobody wanted it, but because they wanted him. The new boss in town is not impressed.
