My husband's citation stone for hanging in so long as mayor of Madeira Beach. Before suffering as mayor, he was a council person for several years.
He served beyond the call of duty and quit because a new bunch of council people came in and wanted to throw their weight around and fired our city attorney, who was the best we ever had, so Tom quit. Not all elected officials are rotten.
Tom is now the hero of the town and of Suncoast Tiger Bay's elected-official members. I am known as the crazy wife who gets booed at Tiger Bay for asking inconvenient questions. My most recent slur was from a guy who ran up to me when I insulted the head of the anti-Hispanic border patrol renegades.
I walked over to him and said, "What did you say to me, sir?"
"I want you to know that I am a New York City lawyer, and I hate you."
"Which of the crime families sent you out for pizza for lunch on court days?" I asked.
Don't let these uncivilized characters disturb you. Just hit back with the snappiest riposte you can think of. All the ladylike women I know follow that protocol.
"Why's a good fellow like that put up with a crackpot like her?" my detractors ask each other.
Love, romance, Quinvere and Lancelot, four children, ten grandchildren, a Georgia girl who can make a pot of chicken and dumplings fitten' to eat" is the answer.
They better be glad my old man's hearing has gone South, or they would get a punch in the puss from my old knight who sleeps in a NY Yankes tee-shirt. lee

Subject: messages from readers on my blog several days ago
Ms. Olson: I received the following two messages on my blog CastingRoomCouch from readers a few days ago. I thought the name Christina Butler sounded familiar. Then a friend reminded me about the school’s sending a child home for her insisting that she was right about the untoward relationship Butler was having with a male student. I think I wrote the board members a rebuke for allowing a child to be punished by sending her home for insisting that she was telling the truth.
The two people below seem emphatic about the comments they make on you, and they represent unethical behavior engaged in by you that cast no honor on the board or yourself. I would like to know if Ms. Kipley butted into the matter and whether she did so on her own volition or on your prompting or Ms. Elia’s. And is engaging in that conduct how she gets her husband hired without a college degree, not even one in home ec against qualified candidates who competed for the job.
I am sure my readers would like to know if the background story about the DUI cover-up is accurate and whether you or Ms. Elia told Kipley to put pressure on a school worker to be quiet about the DUI favors swap. That seems plausible since Ms. Elia and the board have little respect for a person’s First Amendment rights. I got kicked out of the board room by the adulterous chair Falliero for uttering a name, an ad hoc rule she made up because of my revealing the school-based adultery initiated b y her, adultery which accompanied her breaking up the marriage of Mr. Hart and the subsequent misery of his two young children. The board had no objection to tolerating adultery of a fellow board member and even considered it no impediment to her being board chair, although most of the children’s parents certainly would.
Please comment on both your detractors’ remarks, ma’am .The voters have a right to the truth or falsity of this story. Another friend who works in the schools says you are notorious for befriending people in such ways. If so, that’s an unethical habit for a board member.

It should not be surprising that the media has paid little attention to the teacher sex scandal concerning Christina Butler, the former stripper hired at Middleton, as it was most likely Candy Olsen who pulled strings to find her that job. A good friend of mine, an English teacher who was threatened by Kipley to shut up about it, connected the dots on this one. Olsen apparently did it as a favor for someone who years ago covered up her own daughter's D.U.I. while a student at Plant H.S. This teacher apparently dated the girl who covered up the D.U.I. and was best friends with Butler. The folks downtown are more afraid of the Butler situation than anything.
This wouldn't surprise me a bit. Olson is as corrupt as they come. She does favors for friends and people she doesn't think can help her get a kick in the shins or ignored if they ask her for help. She is the epitome of the Good Ol' Boy personality. She is an example of the type of people that keep the status quo. If she sold clothing and found out the clothes were made in a third world country by slave children she would cash the check for her millions in the bank anyway. What a waste of a human being! Mother Teresa would have barfed if she met such a person!
I admire the vivid diction my readers exhibit. lee
