warned both Council and readers, that application was in serious trouble. The borough pretty much bungled a previous $27,500 road grant to build a road for its ambulance company. ... In Upper Nazareth.
Since that project has not even started, that money must be returned. And yesterday, the Gaming Authority passed on a $39,750 pool grant. In fact, Nazareth should know that it finished #35 out of 35 applications.
All told, Nazareth has missed out on $67,250 that could have been used on more worthy projects in the borough, like police vehicles or trucks for the highway department.
You revel in the misfortune of an entire town. How hateful you are.
What I am doing is shining a very public spotlight on a borough's complete failure to secure a dime for its citizens at a time when a two mill tax hike is being considered. In a democratic society, the people have a right to know what their government is doing right ... And wrong.
Your reporting on this was excellent, as the link you provided to your earlier work shows. You predicted this, with spot on accuracy.
If 1:33 AM is so sleepy that she can't see that, too bad. She used the word "revel", but in fact "reveal" would be much more appropriate:
"You reveal in the misfortune of an entire town". You are just the messenger. Nazareth residents deserve to know why they lost these opportunities, and the Council should make sure it doesn't royally screw up next time when looking for handouts.
Thank you. West Easton and Upper Mount Bethel know they need to apply.
you forgot about the pool filters that were never used and did not meet the terms to receive the grant or not.??????
That was a different, open space, grant.
Agree with anon 9:09. The town needs a great check forger to get some money.
Blog Mentor, don't you have a radio show to prepare for? Ooopsie.
I haven't heard the Blog Mentor on WAEB, lately. That not-even-ready-for-NPR, monotone voice had to have been a ratings blockbuster. Whatever could have happened?
As I noted here, that program was used for a parade of defamatory remarks aimed at Lehigh County DA Jim Martin and several other private citizens. Contrary to what Gunther stated, in his own effort to mislead readers, he never looked into the lies being spewed. Once the Sprague law firm got involved, the Mentor was dropped like a hot potato. He'll never be on again. He could always buy air time on WGPA. Oh wait, they've been sued, too, for hosting Mezzacappa and Gregory.
