Park board tells airplane club to take off

Depending on the Metro Parks Commissioner's decision regarding this issue it might be time to replace Judge Spicer with what will hopefully be a judge that will appoint a more progressive minded parks commission. I appreciate the fact that the park commission job is a totally volunteer position and labor of love. However, they need to be more than just a rubber stamp for Keith Shy. A new batch of commissioners may realize that Shy is not their guy and take the necessary action. Voters have short memories and the parks renewal levy is still years away but it doesn't take a lot of people to effectively remind the voters of past errors. God willing, I will be around to remind them of this one.  (Jul 3, 2008 | post #140)

It's also funny that I have been a modeler for more than fifty years. I was also a student interested in science and math. I was a varsity athlete in high school and college. I don't remember anyone picking on me then or now. I also don't remember anyone considering me "precious ". Frankly, you sound like a guy who spent his time in school staring out the window trying to figure out why everyone else got the good grades, girls and jobs. Have a nice day:-)  (Jun 29, 2008 | post #131)

Interestingly, Carol Curtis (one of the three Metro Parks Commissioners) is a part of the campaign to re elect Judge Spicer:-) I agree. It looks like now is the time for a change in Probate Court Judges  (Jun 29, 2008 | post #130)

Model airplanes might get parked

Now more to the point. Keith Shy, the "Rules Are Rules" guy ended up in court because he wouldn't follow his city's regulations for lawn upkeep. Apparently he feels that the only good rules are the ones be agrees with. I've known a few folks like that and they were jerks. Maybe Shy doesn't fit this groove but from what I've heard and seen he's a perfect fit. Rumor has it that Shy sent his employees looking for and photographing model airplane remains on his newly acquired kingdom. He thinks this proves his claim that the models are hazardous to public safety. I'll bet he didn't take any pictures of fallen trees or tree limbs that have hit the ground over the last 35 years. There are two ways to lie. The first by commission and the second by omission; Frequently what we don't say can be more important than what we do say. I can lie by telling you something that I know to be untrue and I can lie by NOT telling you what I know to be true. This type of lie is especially important when I'm trying to convince you that the lie I told you is true. Yes, I'm calling Shy a liar. Prove me wrong.  (Jun 27, 2008 | post #87)
