UPT Board Meeting Notes SE2 EP2: 1/22/19 Let’s get ready to RUMBLE!

Well, that didn’t take long. After a relatively boring and uneventful meeting to start 2019, the Upper Providence Board takes off the gloves at the second meeting of the year and goes a couple of rounds this evening over---what else?---Fire and Emergency Services. Note well:  I had given the Girls’® ability to be independent the …

UPT Board Meeting Notes SE2, EP1: 1/9/19 Girl® Power

https://youtu.be/tljvZ8Ylrz8 Gentle Readers, there is not much to report from the UPT Board’s first meeting of the year. Except for the non-announcement of the establishment of new weekly meetings during the workday. A short beginning-of-the-year re-organization and business meeting, it clocks in at a mere 26 minutes. As mentioned in the year end blog, Laurie …

UPT Board Meeting Notes 2018: The Year that Was

I’d like to begin 2019 with an apology to you, Gentle Readers, for the lack of posts in December. In fairness to your Humble Blogress, but I had a really good excuse: December was an overly eventful month, which included not only a plethora of the usual holiday celebrations and an abbreviated baking schedule (after …

UPT Board Meeting Notes 12/17/18 Episode 20: Fumbling into the End Zone

Gentle Readers, I was going to include the 12/17/18 meeting in the Year in Review post (currently in process), but thought better of it. With apologies for my prolonged absence (and excuses for this to follow in the same Year in Review post), this is the last meeting of 2018 and the first meeting in …

UPT Board Meeting Notes 11/19/18  Episode 19:  The Great Pretension

Gentle Readers, I feel I’ve been quite consistent in my contempt for John Pearson’s opening free form remarks, and have never waivered in my assertion that this practice is nothing more than an ego indulgence. Rest assured, the November 19th meeting will not change that opinion at all; however, it does mark a new low …

UPT Board Meeting Notes 11/5/18 Episode 18: Chickens Return Home; Find Place to Roost

Gentle Readers, the November 5 Board of Supervisors Meeting clocks in at a brutal 2 hours and 37 minutes. In fairness to the Board, it was a heavy agenda. In fairness to the rest of us, however, my conservative estimate of how much time John Pearson wastes with general incompetence in his capacity as Chairman …

UPT Board Meeting Notes 10/1/18 Episode 16: Hodge Podge Dodge

The October 1 Board of Supervisors meeting was held at the Oaks Firehouse. Again. I am not sure if this is a quasi-permanent change in venue until the new meeting hall is opened or why this change of venue was dictated by the Board. Recall that the Board was previously meeting at the Rec Center, …
