YMCA Cleanup Day a “Great Success “

The past year and a half have presented a great deal of challenges for all of us. It is no different for non-profit and commercial businesses alike. As the world went into lock down, the needs did not stop.

Groups like the YMCA and others experienced a lack of volunteers and events. The people and the money dried up real fast. This did not mean that there were not on going needs. So as time passed and the weeds became taller and the limbs grew longer, effort was needed.

Effort is exactly what the YMCA received today. As an Editors note to this story, we would like to take the privilege of thanking Tony Z (Zweiner) for organizing this effort. Weeks of planning and discussion took place way before the cleanup to insure a job well done. Thank You.

There is also credible discussion taking place regarding the awesome swimming pool at the “Y”. TAM has learned of an effort underway to secure a benefactor for the renovation of the pool. Wait until you hear this story. The pool is just the first part. So Standby !

To all the people in the community that helped, you are the best.


Down The Rabbit Hole One More Time

The past several days have developed in such a way that time to reflect on what really matters has been uninhibited. The lack of digital noise can really make a difference you know. We understand our good Village Manager, Howard Brown has been down as well with some of the same type of focus-oriented opportunities.

Hi Folks – NoMo here – It is great to be back – There are so many places we need to go on this episode, So, strap yourself in and hang on as we take you down the Rabbit Hole One More Time.

As usual Mr. YEO leads the TAM hit parade of charts with another good old young socialist verbal evacuation. He just can’t stop telling us how bad America is. The same guy that said he did not think the Village should fund the 4th of July. Did you wonder Indiantown why you did not have Village Fireworks? It was Antony.

As it turns out he has a convenient way of excluding certain history though. It is almost like he has been brainwashed into a rewriting of our past. Our past, you know, our history, where some people did something.

Here is an example of the type of things people did. Still, it is excluded from his mainstream historical narrative.

Did you know that in the years 1819 until 1861 “American War Vessels” patrolled the waters of Africa to make certain that NO human life was being taken captive? The only reason it ended in 1861 was because of a small homeland matter we call The United States Civil War. You know the war that had men, white men and black alike stopping slavery.

We doubt too that Mr. YEO was ever taught that up and until the fourth and final version of the Constitution there was a clause abolishing slavery. Thomas Jefferson was adamant about its inclusion as evidenced by the emphasis he added in to the text. As the story goes, From Many One. We had to be resolute among our cause with all 13 of the Colony or we all would surely hang. There were two States that remained against the inclusionary verbiage. In the end, the clause was removed. There are volumes written about this. but do we hear them?

From the year 1776 in our Declaration of Freedom & Independence, until the end of the civil war, we, Americans shed blood, we fought and lived to make sure that no man was enslaved to another. Then a new type of enslavement began. It was the encampment of low-income Americans in 50’s and 60’s disguised as the “War on Poverty”, predominantly but not exclusively, black. The Civil Rights Movement is not to be considered the same thing.

With Dr, King and others, men of all race locked arm and demanded the end to the walls of segregation and opportunity. They demanded a balancing of the scale. Men of all race did so. Men of all race bled. Men of all race made effort towards the same end.

What we did as American’s had never been done by a nation on the face of this planet in mankind’s history. We were the first. The first to fully abolish all forms of slavery. The world soon followed.

America is and was then a brave idea of equality not equity. How any American could vote for a man that hates the same ideals he took oath to defend, is beyond me. That though is Antony.

So, when Mr. YEO emptied his blow hole on Juneteenth about why we should not celebrate the 4th of July you just have to ask yourself if there are more of him out there? Is Indiantown that far gone as not to see the ugly self-serving half-truths he tells?

Remember, this little Socialist was elected. Of course, he was not sporting his YEO flag then either, was he?

We have a hard time here @ TAM believing that there are enough people in this Village a second time to get him back in office. That is unless he gets his $2000 stipend to grease the rails of public opinion a bit. One thing Antony is, is a one ring promoter.

Next on our radar are the numbers from this year’s property appraisals in Martin County. A big shout out to Mrs. Fields for her offices hard work.

As it turns out Indiantown went down a couple points while the rest of the County increased in property assessment values.  What this means in simple terms is that the 288k from residential property taxes will decline even further as a part of the Village budget. FPL reduced slightly too but still will provide enough revenue for safe operations under normal conservative fiscal policy.

It is that last part that we fear may be lost on some. The Conservative Fiscal Policy that is. Given the lack of financial conservatorship shown by Howard Brown and his spend happy Council, we doubt they will let it slow them down.

Now that Fire Rescue’s opportunity for budget building is down the tubes, Howard needs something else to increase his budget numbers.


See his salary uses the annual budget as part of the formula for his wage justification. So, the more he can budget, of FPL’s money, the more he makes. What better to spend your money on than a new Town Hall. We can promise you that the top admin staff will not be sitting on the ground floor either once it is done.

Instantly though one has to ask the question, “What is wrong with the offices that few of you spend much time in anyway?”

What services can you not provide from the current location?

Who does this serve, the Government or the People?

Remember too that in less than eighteen months a re-negotiation with FPL will be in the works. You know, the guys that hold the purse string. The 85% of the purse.

Also, the Villages revenue declined this year. Wouldn’t a normal budgeted family look at that and say, no Disney this year kids!

As a matter of fact, I can all but assure you that it will not be given much consideration except maybe by Susan. You would think Janet as an accounting type for the Church would be slowing this down as well.

Two more quick items. First, after reading Friends & Neighbors Sunday biweekly edition by Tom Campenni we thought that he summed up the whole idea of “personal accounts” for each Councilperson neatly. The following from our friend Tom;

“How do you make something seem nefarious? Just ask Dowling to present it.”

“For some time now, he has been seeking to have each council member have a discretionary fund of $2,000 per year. This would be spent for special events that he or other council members may have through the year…….”

“Dowling brought up that he had to pay for a park rental permit for one of his events. If it is not a sanctioned village event, then he should pay for the permit. Where does the political end and a legitimate public purpose begin? Gibbs-Thomas said it doesn’t bother her to pay when she does something that the village hasn’t sanctioned.”

You can read more here.

Last but by no means least, a bit of good news. As we know this past year and a half have been extraordinary in many ways. The outcome of the recent past events has left many Civic Organizations in lean pasture. Not necessarily money, but from volunteer efforts.

Well as it turns out the YMCA in Indiantown is one of those Civic Groups. On Saturday the 17th at 8AM, local residents are bringing shovel, rake, mowers, trailers and a smile. They will be there to begin the process of returning the YMCA back into her better self. If you would like to help our own Tony Z is organizing the cleanup and he would love to hear from you. Drop him a line in his e-mail TonyZ@TalkAboutMartin.com . Also Look for an announcement coming soon about a new TAM Contributor that will be joining our team more to follow on that in the days ahead.

Alright – that’s all for now and remember to subscribe for insider updates here on TAM

So, until next time, standby

America Rewritten

The Constitution of the United States established the American form of government and radically changed the ideas of where the rights of citizens originate. It’s founded on the idea that the role of government is to protect God-given rights.

Yet now, the doctrine that constitutes America is under assault. Freedom of speech is being worn down through corporate–government censorship, freedom of belief is being suppressed with lockdowns, the right to bear arms is being called into doubt, and the numerous rights of Americans are in jeopardy.

As a new narrative is being taught to America’s youth on the founding stories of this country, and as history itself is being rewritten, what does the future hold for America, once seen as the beacon of freedom and the shining city on the hill?

In “America Rewritten,” an exclusive special feature from The Epoch Times, we speak with leading experts on how history is being falsified and how the system of government is being misrepresented, and we explore what the world would lose if the American Constitution were lost.

Join host Joshua Philipp as he speaks with experts including Dinesh D’Souza, Victor Davis Hanson, Rick Green, Trevor Loudon, Mary Grabar, Thomas K. Lindsay, Kevin Roberts, Craig Parshall, Dustin Bass, and K. Lloyd Billingsley in “America Rewritten.”

Am I the Only One?

[Verse 1]
Am I the only one, here tonight
Shakin’ my head and thinkin’ somethin’ ain’t right
Is it just me? Am I losin’ my mind?
Am I standin’ on the edge of the end of time?

[Verse 2]
Am I the only one? Tell me I’m not
Who thinks they’re takin’ all the good we got
And turnin’ it bad, hell, I’ll be damned
I think I’m turnin’ into my old man

Am I the only one, willin’ to bleed
Or take a bullet for bein’ free
Screamin’, “What the fuck!” at my TV
For tellin’ me, yeah, are you tellin’ me?
That I’m the only one, willin’ to fight
For my love of the red and white
And the blue, burnin’ on the ground
Another statue comin’ down in a town near you

Watchin’ the threads of Old Glory come undone
Am I the only one?

[Verse 3]
Am I the only one not brainwashed?
Makin’ my way through the land of the lost
Who still gives a shit, and worries ’bout his kids
As they try to undo all the things he did?

Am I the only one who can’t take no more
Screamin’, “If you don’t like it there’s the fuckin’ door”
This ain’t the freedom we’ve been fightin’ for
It was somethin’ more, yeah, it was somethin’ more
Am I the only one, willin’ to fight
For my love of the red and white
And the blue, burnin’ on the ground
Another statue comin’ down in a town near you

[Post Chorus]
Watchin’ the threads of Old Glory come undone
I’m not the only one
I can’t be the only one

Am I the only one who quits singin’ along
Every time they play a Springsteen song

Am I the only one sittin’ here
Still holdin’ on, holdin’ back my tears
For the ones who paid with the lives they gave
God bless the U.S.A
I’m not the only one, willin’ to fight
For my love of the red and white
And the blue, burnin’ on the ground
Another statue comin’ down in a town near you

A Prayer for Freedom

This post was originally written in 2014 on here https://nomomrniceguy.com/2014/01/21/a-prayer-for-freedom/

For a free man the ultimate act of freedom is to break the chains that bind him. And those chains are not physical and won’t be found binding his wrists or ankles, but rather they are imposed upon his mind and life. Freedom, true freedom, can only begin when he is willing to start down the path of personal sovereignty and total personal accountability.

This has been spoken of in a previous post.

No one rain drop is responsible for the flood, yet it is the rain that creates the flood. Like a rain drop it is incumbent upon each man to remain true to his nature. There are certain unalienable rights he poses by birth right. Man is born into a system of natural law

Those most well known are life, liberty and the pursuit of property, where property is now known as happiness. Another is the natural fact that all men through their birth have equal opportunity to succeed in their life journey. It is the choices they make along the way, and the freedom they enjoy, that determine the outcome. It is equally true too that all men face obstacle in their life and must overcome to succeed.

So, once a man is to understand how free he is, he can then understand that there is a government that has greatly reduced his choices. It is the same government that has lost sight of its charter and has become tyrannical in its actions.

In order for that same man to be a truly free man, he must be unbound by “all” that shackles him. Do not confuse duty with slavery or shackles with choice. It is not a family or spouse, or work, all of which was made by choice that shackles a man. It is those things that other men hold over a man that shackles him the most.

In order to live as a free man, a man must first be honest with himself. For it is when a man is honest with oneself that he is then able to be honest with another. A free man is dependent upon himself and not another man or government. So it is then that a free man is able to identify when his liberty has been infringed upon and protect it. If a man is dependent upon another then he has diminished his liberty and therefore is less capable of defending it. It is for this reason that it is incumbent upon us to honestly ask ourselves to what extent we are dependent and then work to remove those dependencies no matter how daunting it may be. For it is the closer to self-sufficiency one gets that brings us closer to liberty.

Why is it that we as a people consent to things that impede our freedom? It is certain that we have allowed the NSA, IRS, Congress, EPA, DHS, POTUS. Local Elected (and) …… to mandate regulatory restrictions upon our persons and thus greatly limit our personal freedom.

How is it that we have allowed those we have elected of supposed free will to govern in a way that perpetuates these restrictions? How do we remove ourselves from these shackles of oppression and tyranny?

I am advocating for a rapid return to Governance by will. No, will is not short for William or Bill. Will is that energy that allows us to make decisions for ourselves based upon outcome. We are born with a free will. When the forces that surround us exercise strength so great that it diminishes our ability to exercise that free will then the force must be removed. It limits a man’s freedom and must be overcome.

So, do we act in the same way the early Americans did and take up arms against our government? A little early in that stage but that is not to say it could not or should not happen at a point forward should oppression continue or increase. There is an easier and equally effective road to travel to attain this goal.

A man must remove those impediments to his freedom in order to be a free man. And if a free man cannot remove that barrier individually, then he should do so as a collection of free men. If each free man is to govern himself and his personal territory as a free thinking, free acting and responsible citizen, then is when we may begin to overcome our barriers and return us to a Nation of freedom and liberty for all. Beware though, with maximum freedom there comes a maximum self-responsibility. Responsibility is something a real man knows well.

When each man lives as an example of freedom and advocates to others of their right to be equally as free, then we begin to build a collective of ideas and principles based upon the individual. This is much like how our nation came to be in existence. This is of course short of the uprising.

A free man should in no way allow himself to be told that he is an individual in a collective. That then would be to say that the collective is the dominant keeper. No, let it be said that a free man is individual amongst other individuals that collectively demonstrate the will of the people. Each man must act individually as an individual doing what he can individually accomplish to awaken others, defeat the spirit of progressivism and restore freedom. And as individuals we will create a great collection of individuals not an individual collective.

Free men have a duty and obligation to uphold this value. Free men are generationally predetermined to be the keepers of the “Sacred Fire of Liberty”. A free man must live his life as an example to other men. By doing so he individually begins to recreate the awareness of a foundational and free society.

It is incumbent upon and must be demanded of our elected, that we return to the principle of governing to the will. It is equally incumbent upon all men to elect representatives that share this understanding and way of life.

While a man advocates representation by free will, as a responsible citizen he must advocate free will in his own life as well in order to support his demand of another. That is to say that a free man should be willing to live that which he advocates.

If a man is honest with himself and others and he works to promote the common welfare of a family, community and a nation which by its very design is there to secure his ability to live of free will, then and only then can he say he has upheld the torch of liberty that has been passed to him by his forefathers.

A free man must be of a spirit willing; he must lead through example and begin to retake his community through his example and living leadership. A free man does not govern by edict or proclamation. He governs by action. He should govern by will.

As a people, we must begin to rekindle the brightness that beamed from this great Nation.  A man must go beyond words and begin to take action, actions that are in keeping with Constitutional principle. Actions that are in keeping with Gods will. As a nation we must regain our personal freedom by becoming once again free men in our own lives.

No one rain drop is responsible for the flood, yet it is the rain that creates the flood. Nor has one voice been responsible for a revolution of ideas. We must as free men act as a drop of rain so that we may collectively flood our world with, love, freedom and Gods will.

A Prayer for Freedom

Dear Heavenly Father, Let us shed ourselves of debt and fear. Let us shed our personal shackles that keep us from our freedom. Let us lead by example those around us in a way that is true to American spirit and true to you God. Let us not be afraid to articulate why an action of government is a shackle. Let us do so with sincerity and not spite. Let us do so in a way that teaches, so others may learn too. Above all, let us be honest to ourselves and to you God. Let us be willing to learn so that we may begin to reclaim our rightful positions as free men in a free nation.

30 June 2021 Show Replay and Extra Video

Here is a Replay of today’s show.

We also have for your review, the extra video of Councilman Antony Dowling disowning America and her Birthday. He seems to be setting up a campaign platform of very far left progressive rhetoric and ideas. Let us know what you think below.

Way to go kids! You did it.

Last week GM announced a $35 million march towards ALL E V. GM’s plan back in March 2020 was to invest $20 billion over five years in electric and autonomous vehicles. That money would go toward building and equipping factories, engineering expenses, and other development costs.

At the time, GM aimed to sell more than 1 million electric vehicles by 2025, with dozens of new models based on its home-grown Ultium battery technology.

Now Audi is the latest automaker to express its intent to completely end building combustion engine vehicles. They have said that they will stop building gas and diesel vehicles by 2026. Five short years from now.

As for the Hybrid line? Well from that point forward, no longer either.

According to The Drive; The Audi board chairman offered the deadline to company executives and labor representatives this week. The company said in March of this year that it would stop developing new combustion engines. Ah great.

The company has been in the midst of a “massive realignment” to try and gel with the Biden administration’s intent to subsidize E V production and infrastructure, according to Automotive News. More Public Private partnerships. Oh Goodie!

The parent company is reportedly “gearing up to make and sell considerably more electric vehicles in North America after U.S. President Joe Biden mapped out a $174 billion plan to accelerate the move to electric cars.”

There’s nothing like $174 billion to help motivate a massive business pivot, is there?

Name an auto manufacture that is not running like pigs squealing to the trough of free money. All they have to do is merge with the Federal System and VOILA – they too can have a Public Private PARTNERSHIP with the government. How cozy! How scary and how wrong.

Let’s pause for a bit and take a turn on this whole cluster of a mess. Instead of exposing the obvious and blatant in bed attempt being made here against your sovereignty. Let’s look across the way a bit. Here is a question to get you lined up with the idea. Ready? OK.

If in the next five years we are to flood the market with nothing but electric vehicles available for purchase is that a good thing?

Before we answer that there are a couple of “Mile Markers” we have just passed on this one. Again, the latest being the massive capital infusion into the industry. It is taking place by companies that already have a global manufacturing infrastructure and history of mass production. Chances are pretty good that this thing is going to happen.

This can be evidenced by the fact that the economically advantaged are the early adopters to new markets because of initial price constraint on the manufacturer. So as the deep pockets buy the luxury goods first the price falls for those of less economic advantages.

So, what of those less economically advantaged peoples?

Well, we suppose we will still need our gas-powered cars for a while. Reasonable to expect. It is the way these trends work. Cell Phones were only available for people with money. The Brick. Car Phones, Computer’s blah blah blah. The price starts high and then tapers as more demand is reached.

But what of the oil and gas industry through all of this? If we start reducing the sale of gasoline by millions of gallons a day in a compressed period of time, the edicts of supply and demand are going to drive gas to an astronomical price well beyond what anyone today thinks is even possible. Actions have outcomes.

After we get through what we are being told is going to be a seamless and non-violent transition we still have something even larger to deal with. If that is even possible.

Has anyone besides us been seeing the headlines about Texas, California, Arizona and others. About what? Well, these Greener than thou States are not able to keep up with the Air Conditioners and Heaters for their citizens.

While we are on the whole power thing, did you see the stories about smart thermostats in peoples homes were turned warmer for a three hour period in Texas during a “power shortage”. Nice, they can even control your AC now. Way to go kids!

These are the same States that adopted a green new deal infrastructure infusion of wind and solar as MAJOR sectors of their grid. Makes nuclear look better all the time. Quiet, safe, abundant, always on!

So, answer us this.

How in the hell are we going to charge everyone’s car when we cannot even produce enough power for our basic needs?

See the problem with the common core math?

Alexandria Occasional Cortex can maybe explain it for us.

Now, let’s just say the “gubberment” was not providing a Hundred and Seventy BILLION plus. Do you think the manufacturers would be biting the hook as tight? Yeah, us either. You can receive up to a $7,500 tax credit though if you buy one. Great more money from the Peoples pile.

Can’t you just see the calls now? “Sorry boss, my power was throttled last night and the car only has one bar. I won’t be in today.”

If there is to be no more gas combustion engines then what of Trains, Planes and Trucks? The cost of fuel if they do need to remain combustion is going to be outrageous and will effect your retail and food costs. As well as your travel cost in a major way.

E V technology is promising. It promises environmental nightmares ahead with piles of acid filled heaps of millions of batteries that are out of service. The unicorns are not going to just take them apart and dispose of them with no trace or residue. It promises years of abject poverty and unrequested hardship by many.

So, welcome to the Brave new world. ESG Scores and more for everyone. Including you fellow global citizen. This is just the first of many Great Reset or Build Back Better initiatives that are going to be attempted to be draped upon you – like it or not.

When you see initiatives like this locally in your County and Municipal Governments you know where they stem from. Agenda 2030, Sustainable Development, World Economic Forum & others.

Welcome to the closing chapters of Sustainable everything. Thank you to all that sold your country down the drain and into the pipe dream of global agreeance and outcome. The Great Reset as it is now branded. Way to go kids! You did it. You acted like useful idiots in your ego driven play of power and greed.

All the while you hid behind banner of Party, partisanship and racial division to advance the Global Agenda known as the Great Reset. The early adopters of sustainable development in Martin County opened the gateway to this type of reality in your own neighborhood. Stuart is equally as complicit in their adherence to this ridiculous march towards global everything.

It seems to be the younger among them that are foot to the floor on this stuff. They should consider that there was once a world before them. They may want to know too that as early as 1967 the last cultural revolution of ideas ended in 30 plus million dead.

Hang on kids, the bumps are just beginning! Turbulence and consequences ahead! Standby

UPDATE : –> https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/california-begs-citizens-change-their-ev-charging-routines-amidst-precarious-power-grid


Governance is not designed to be a spectator’s sport.

Think back to the three expedited discussions that we just had publicly about the Tractor Supply development efforts. With only one of those being open public discussion. Not comment, but discussion.

We went from the development application being heard by the PZA on a Wednesday, then exactly one week later a Town Hall in Indianwood. Then one day later a final vote by the Council to approve. Eight days of public discourse.

Is that a good thing or a bad thing? Let’s look.

On the good side the government sure is efficient in their clerical and administrative details. To what benefit for you, us, WE THE PEOPLE, is there for this rush of over efficiency to shove it through with such haste?

With an election coming you better make sure you know what you want to turn your Village into, what is their vision for you?

Be certain of the fact that your Council knew of this way in advance and had several opportunities to speak with the people involved. They knew well before you even heard a whisper of the plans. You only had 8 days though.

There is one caveat to this that is worth the mention.

Credible first-hand sighting of a Human burial on that property several decades back was presented to the PZA Board that voted 4-1 to approve it. They also approved what is a list of variances required to meet the same rules they are supposed to be safe guarding.

Even with the reality of a human body in their midst there was not even a whisper of getting answers before they voted. People like Marjorie Beary asked solid questions that raised serious concerns. Still though – Zoom Zoom!

Tony Zweiner was the only one that dissented with his vote. He said, “The sanctity of Human life is worth the effort to slow this down and make sure that what we are doing is right.”

Further he explained to his fellow Board Members that they were there to uphold the structure and letter of the LDR’s. “Not doing so would set precedent and create a potential for lawsuit moving forward.”

The LDR’s are the rules people have to follow to build anything in Indiantown. The idea being that everyone has an equal right to development under equal rules. When you allow variance for interpretation, well, who gets to interpret next time? The one that is paid the most?

What if you do not allow the next developers variance for similar reasons like you just did for Tractor Supply? That sounds more like equity than equality. It sounds like legal issues.

That next week after the PZA vote, there was a town hall at Indianwood Retirement Park. This is where the theme started to perform a rehearsed form of dialectic legal pattern. You heard it twenty times if you heard it once, “We met everything we were required to do.” Meaning, you should just approve us or we will sue you.

The problem with that though is they did not do everything required. They just wanted that drum beat to pound in your heads and your ears like the propaganda it is. Edward Bernays would have been proud.

See, they had to get approval from your Council to set aside portions of those common Land Regulations in order to give the developer the permission to build. Your Village Council in a 4-1 vote, voted for some pretty big variances from the rules, Ms. Gibbs-Thomas was in dissent. She said no to the variances.

Because of the 4 Village People who voted “YES”, the next guy has an argument to make that they deserve the same types of favors for exemption from the rules.

Not only that, did you see how quickly Antony was willing to sell the Peoples Development Rights to the highest bidder?

What do we mean? He gave away the value of the opportunity like a childish promoter. He did so for his more for his own gain of notoriety.

When we spoke with Ms. Gibbs-Thomas, we asked her what her general take was on the whole development affair.

To summarize the discussion, our general takeaway was this; Every piece of land in Indiantown that has the potential to be built on is fixed in number. There are only so many acres to build on. That makes the limited amount of land pretty darn valuable if you are looking to cash in. Like Tractor Supply was.

That makes the land a very valuable commodity. One people are willing to pay handsomely for. The Village Council in the end are the commodity brokers in a way. When you really stop to consider what she is saying, she is right.

There is only so much land, why back down from the first challenge of the rules, the LDR’s like Antony did?

Jackie, Janet, Antony and staff on more than one occasion has heralded the rules as the best in the land. Why not stand up for them instead of selling out to the first offer that comes down the pipe? Or do they have no real value to them?

You see, Antony was quick to rush in and give away the store if he had too. One has to ask why?  For what?

What benefit is there to the people of Booker Park or Up town?

What benefit for Indianwood or the local businesses?

As it turned out the Developer said he had a deal breaker on one of the rules that the Village required and the Village either set the rule aside or Tractor Supply was walking. How did Antony take it?

This is a picture of a sitting Councilman obviously praying with his Economic Development Director during discussion on the matter.

What else could they be doing IN THE SUNSHINE while the meeting is taking place?

What was said?

We will never know, in a public meeting, what was said by the two of them. That is wrong and very unethical. Play time is over. The people deserve better.

Especially when there is no consideration for the Hometown Family-owned businesses. Seems like an agenda by the few. Somehow, what has been here is not good enough and there is no loyalty or consideration to those who brought Indiantown this far. Elected or not.

So, for the $5,000.00 a year in additional taxes and the 6 to 8 people that will be employed (their numbers from the application) no one can point to another economic benefit when asked. Two of those jobs are management and will come from outside. So, we gain 4 clerk’s positions in Indiantown. For those four people we are sure the work will mean a lot. Good Luck.

The Staff claims that you, the People of Indiantown asked for this type of high density commercial retail development.

OK, so let’s recap a bit because there is more.

  • So far, a development of impact application was heard by the PZA and the Council in an 8 day window.
  • There was one opportunity for a poorly advertised Town Hall.
  • There were over 400+ pages of related material to digest in a very short period of time.
  • There was question of the still unsettled outcome of the Human remains. More on that in a minute.
  • There was no consideration, by four Council people for the value or sanctity of the rules the Council is charged with guarding.

At this point it seems fair to say, something is just not right about all this.

Did you know that there is an additional 35 freshly platted acres adjacent to the Indianwood community for similar buildout?  They are already being brokered by certain powers in town. This will bring much more commercial density, noise, light and criminal element in the Village.

The transitory nature of the people in and out of the new development is cause for concern. Time and the crime blotter will tell the outcome on that one.

If we are to be governed then we should demand better from our elected. Know that this is just the first of what will be many similar applications for commercial retail coming forward. Not only there, but elsewhere.

If you were not there or did not see any of the three meetings, we will help you out.

Know this though. Your non participation in the process is enough to offset the needed weight of those that do participate. Your voice does matter, stand with your neighbor in your interests and theirs or what you have in store will be far worse than one Tractor Supply.

As you are hopefully seeing with fire rescue and now this freight train that just crashed the door, governance is not designed to be a spectator’s sport. The good people of Indiantown need to either get up off their backsides or wallow in the mess that is about to ensnare you.

In reference to the potential of human remains being known to exist on the property, TAM has been busy. We have contacted the MCSO under FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) in an effort to follow what is taking place as the Florida Statute requires.

We have also been in contact with an Independent Anthropologist that has used their access to satellite images to confirm that the mound is where it was reported to be.  Given the nature of the potential, we are hopeful the owners will be willing to let a third party that does not have a dog in the hunt do some digging as they say. We do not mean having the developer hiring or pay them either. How cozy of an outcome can that produce? We mean a true independent.

Oh, one last thing needs to be said to the those insisting that the story of remains is a “rumor”.

Your daughter was seen making out with someone a few years back in the woods. That is a rumor.

Having three eyewitnesses as well as several sources of corroborating independent knowledge about the burial of human remains is not a rumor. It is a matter that deserves the attention of everyone. That way we can make sure that the outcome of the investigation will bring satisfactory answers for everyone.

So, until there is law, eyewitnesses and corroborating knowledge, we cannot start an investigation into the rumor of your daughter.  An investigation has begun however with the eyewitness accounts and corroboration from independent sources of remains on the property.

God Rest Their Soul.

We have a lot more for you to follow on this and we will keep you updated on what we find. So, until next time step out, step up, get involved and – Standby
