Basehor City Council to consider new scoreboards for sports complex

And the first two people to sign in with their real names will be..."thinkaboutit" and "proudofourcity".... ;-)))

However, "proudofourcity" has finally said something that we all can agree on:
"The other items being argued about will never be resolved until people step up and work together like equal members. I don't see that happening anytime soon. What a shame."

Some of us "silent majority" (not the yelling ones) have stepped up and still got shot down. So the key words to focus on are "work together" and "like equal members," not as tribes full of hate, but as "equals," and really "working together," not name-calling, bullying, mocking, turning a deaf ear, etc.

Way to go "proudofourcity," you hit the nail on the head again when you say you don't see that "working together" and "like equal members" happening anytime soon (but we all could start over and do it better if anybody's interested). And we agree a 3rd time with you that it's a shame.

"Thinkaboutit (anonymous) replies…
"Go to a council meeting! You don't need a forum. Council meetings are open to the public!"

If only 10% of what's been covered here and elsewhere is true, but keeps getting ignored, nobody really wants to expose themselves or their families to the same potential harassment/abuse from the PD or acting city administrator that's been displayed by them and their supporters.

“basehorgal” -- Please understand that what’s on here has concerned a lot of people we know, as well as us, for a long time. Agree with you about the scoreboard topic, or lack thereof, and agree with the above "LR" suggested ideas to get it going.

Exactly. Still waiting for answers to the below:

Back to main points>>
1.) Is the Sentinel going to do some real investigative journalism and also provide a place for all of us to voice ourselves without sabotaging unrelated articles?
2.) Is the new city council and mayor going to keep ignoring what's so obviously blatant, or are they working on solutions that will address what's been covered in the above posts?

Okay, you just heard more from the "silent majority." Yeah, we're fed up with the attitude.

And, when do we the "silent majority" public get to hear the answers to these questions?

don't you guys ever get tired of using the "big lie" technique? you guys think you're the only ones who live in Basehor? just throw labels, no substance or truth, but quick to accuse others of what you're doing. again. news flash, there are more "tribes" living in Basehor than just yours and the other one you keep referring to out of anger (but maybe it's out of fear of them?) scheeez, your example is why us "silent majority" are waking up to what's going on and trying to have a voice that you deny anywhere else.

Never thought about it before, but "Boss Hogg Syndrome" and "parasites" do provide a name for what's going on down at City Hall.

TOTALLY agree that the Sentinel needs to be providing more coverage, and make sure it's for both sides. Matt Erickson's article covering the interviews about the recall election was really good in showing how it all got started as one example of great coverage. He covered both sides about how people on the street, exiting the voting booth, said they were confused with the conflicting petitions and just decided to vote everybody out, and then they were recognizing that they'd been played and were questioning their vote.

Too bad that article's powerful on-going storyline (reasons for firing city administrator by city council, petition to recall his partner-in-crime since he was an elected official, opposition to the firing and recall starts their own petition against city council members who did the firing) had not come out earlier so the public could've understood how it all had started. We all would have been better informed voters for the recall election, maybe even coming up with other options priot to it.

We certainly have heard plenty in the Sentinel about what led up to the recall, but nothing about any of those legal documents that just surfaced last month before the recall. Shouldn't matter how or who exposed them. They all appear to be legally recording the actual events that led up to the recall, as well as provide more about other events such as the fired officer's November 2011 plea for justice and about the fired city administrator's January 2012 plea to believe his victimhood. Original "justification" for opposing the 3 city council who fired the guy was that they talked outside a closed meeting. Erickson covered that by asking them if they'd talked outside a closed meeting, printed their denials, but what about digging for more proof as to which side is giving truth? Now "justification" for wanting the 3 city council out of office is that they "broke the contract" and "didn't follow the current city attorney's counsel to not fire him."

So which is it? They talked outside a closed meeting, or they (allegedly) didn't follow legal counsel to not break a contract? Former city attorney provided copies of his investigations and counsel, but we don't see any proof that the current city attorney gave the alleged counsel, let alone proof that it contradicted what the former city attorney had on his researched counsel.

Been plenty about the fired city administrator, both verbal and written, and plenty about his supporters defending his illegally breaking his own contract and making it null and void long before the city council even knew anything about it. When do we get the same unbiased, transparency coverage about all those legal papers posted on a website the opposition-to-truth appears to keep ignoring/discrediting? The Sentinel doesn't do "double-standard" reporting, do they?

Breuer becomes new Basehor mayor

About both cases, what did you read and where did you get it? Where can I get this info about his problems with his superiors? If this type of info is in his personnel file, how do you have access to it? If it's not, can you give me a link or provide me with this negative info?
