Hobart Gapp commented on Mary Kate Leming's blog post Meet Your Neighbor: Max Weinberg

Hobart Gapp commented on Mary Kate Leming's blog post Lantana: An unraveling on Ocean Avenue
"Looks like Tom and Burt where scheming to hide money from Lovie.  Burt still wants to patch things up with his old buddy.  Now that he's jettisoned Lovie, I'm sure he and Tom would be a big hit in the singles bar at the Seagate.  "

Hobart Gapp commented on Mary Kate Leming's blog post Boca Raton: Candidate for election appointed to temporary spot on council
"These candidates haven't exactly covered themselves in glory.  They feud like children on a playground- each trying to hack the system.  I guess there's a lot a stake.  Before you can collect lucrative consulting payments from real estate…"

Hobart Gapp commented on Mary Kate Leming's blog post Delray Beach: Outside review unearths failures
"Lack of "institutional control"?  Is that code for "corruption" or "malfeasance"?  I'm confused.  Delray city government has been a toxic mix of incompetence and corruption for a while.  Snowbirds snooze while the city managers take everything…"

Hobart Gapp commented on Mary Kate Leming's blog post Along the Coast: The great sea grape debate
"Who elected Gann and Barron to be our rulers?  Somehow they began thinking that they're in charge here.  I suggest we disabuse them of that notion...pronto.   They seem to care more about the sea oats than they do about the sea turtles.   These…"

Hobart Gapp commented on Mary Kate Leming's blog post Highland Beach: Scale back Milani, leaders say
"You can bring 500 people to this narrow (and eroding) beach; it won't matter.  This isn't about logic...it's about envy.  Why should those folks who saved all their lives to afford a home in HB be allowed to enjoy the fruits of their labor?  They…"

Hobart Gapp commented on Mary Kate Leming's blog post Highland Beach: Pedestrian-activated crosswalk lights coming
"When driving on A1A I cannot go 25 mph.  When a client calls with a broken air conditioning system, they need help immediately and I’ve got to get there.  I’m not on a Sunday afternoon pleasure cruise, I’m helping people and making a living.  I will…"

Hobart Gapp commented on Mary Kate Leming's blog post Gulf Stream: Consultants price new sewer system at $11 million-plus
"This new sewer system is going to be expensive.  Who will pay for it?  I was thinking of buying a home in Gulfstream.  Would I be charged a major assessment next year?   Should I figure that into the home purchase price? How much do you think it…"

Hobart Gapp commented on Mary Kate Leming's blog post Highland Beach: Consultant to examine cost of starting a fire department
"$40,000 for a consultant?  Come on.  Delray Fire Dept isn’t going anywhere.  Chief Keith knows it.  He’s not worried. To me this looks like political theater.  Does anyone want to bet me that Delray stays?  Highland Beach should save the $40,000.…"

Hobart Gapp commented on Mary Kate Leming's blog post Delray Beach: Additional office investigates city’s water program
"My bet...nobody gets charged on this.  There will be a mock investigation to make the public think justice is being served...it won’t be.  Delray residents drank contaminated drinking water.  Lots of Taxpayer money disappeared.   Who cares?"

Hobart Gapp replied to Mary Kate Leming's discussion Letter to the Editor: Australian pines are invasive, not historic
"Yeah, cut ‘em down...cut them all down.  And while you’re at it, grind up all the sea grapes arches in Delray too.  Purity of species....that’s the most important thing.  Who cares if people really like them...they weren’t born here.  "
