The Adventures of Alfred and Vincent Part 10
When we left off in our last episode, the chief commissioner, Alfred, had yet another time managed to push his agenda for the new Lego Hall of the Mountain King Justice and Rehabilitation Center past the citizens and voters of our beloved county during the county’s first ever 8:30 a.m. EMERGENCY commissioner’s meeting. Sadly, the pathetic duo of majority commissioners, Alfred and Vincent, approved their resolution to purchase a historic, flooded, undermined, sinkhole ridden wetland with no sewage, in spite of the fact that concerned residents showed up in droves to voice their opposition, much to the majority commissioner’s dismay who had hoped that the meeting would be poorly attended due to the unprecedented early hour and the legal notice only having been buried in the local rag the day before.
Before the business of the meeting began, Alfred stated that the entire meeting would only take a few moments as there was only one agenda item. Three hours later, the one agenda item was approved by that duo despite the fact that the resolution was written in violation of the Pennsylvania Sunshine Act, specifically, but not limited to, part 65 Pa.C.S.A. § 707. Exceptions to open meetings, Section (b) Conference. "Deliberation of agency business may not occur at a conference (not open to the public)." No record of that meeting where the resolution wording was discussed exists, and there was no legal notice to advertise that meeting. Common sense dictates that, therefore, the one agenda item at the EMEREGENCY meeting was the result of a violation of the Pennyslvania Sunshine Act, which therefore made the EMERGENCY meeting illegal, and all this done with complete impunity by the county key stone, Henny “Bullcaca” Jackal, who stumbled into the meeting irate that it was taking so long because his meeting of the county prison board was scheduled at 9 a.m. by the optimistic majority commissioners.
So irate was Henny Jackel, Alfred and Vincent, that, in response, Alfred proposed new rules to limit the time period where citizens could voice their opinion at commissioner meetings. Citizens who did not “register” with the county propaganda minister, er, I mean county clerk, were to be penalized by having one minute shaved off of their now mandated three minute speaking limit. Anyone wishing to video record the meetings would also have to obtain prior permission from the clerk. Never mind the fact that this is clearly and entirely in violation of Pennsylvania law, whereby no attempt may be made to infringe on citizen’s right to film public meetings.
My dear readers, at this point you may be asking where I am going with this. I feel obligated to inform you that it is very difficult to answer that question. Where indeed? Folks, as I have previously stated, I weep with you when you see the truthful facts about how our elected and appointed officials ignore our pleas and move forward with an agenda that is against our wishes to rein in spending during these trying financial times. Do these majority commissioners not feel the pressure of the same monetary difficulties as the common county citizenry? Why do they not wish to address potential lower cost and as effective alternatives to their desire to engage in the county’s largest ever expenditure?
Their argument that the new prison “will pay for itself” is as ridiculous as the classic fairy tale of a hen who laid golden eggs and the fable of the money tree.
No, folks, there must be a different reason for the level of desperation that we are witnessing regarding the antics of Alfred and Vincent. You, my dear readers, were introduced earlier to Dim Monymony, aka, “The Big Cheese.” The Big Cheese gives the orders and his minions from the county level on down follow suit. We surely can speculate about what the ultimate plan is for our county and the reason for the desperate cries for a new prison and as there have been many twists and turns in our ongoing saga of our beautiful though depressed county on the edge of Appalacia, perhaps it would be best to “listen in” on the voices that desperately feel the need to maintain control of any riches of what little we have here. Dim Monymony has called a meeting at the Firepit, who’s owners made a fortune on fifteen cent burgers and now engage in high end eight dollar burgers and twenty dollar steaks. Political favor comes with a price.
Dim Monymony: You guys want to meet at Bud’s all the time. Why? What does Bud’s do for you?
Alfred: Hey, I like it here at the Firepit, you must reciprocate when it comes to business, right?
Vincent: The burgers are good, but I remember the old days when a family of five could stuff themselves for the price of one Firepit steak.
Alfred: Well, Vincent, those days are over. It cost money to do business these days, right Dim?
Dim: Yes, it sure does Alfred, and that’s why we’re here, to talk about money. You guys have spent over one and a quarter million dollars on the new prison and you still have nothing to show for it. Nada, not one thing.
Alfred: We have Dom Crabapple’s architectural renderings for it. His design work is almost complete.
Dim: Alfred, over a million dollars and that’s all you have? My constituents are asking a lot of questions. I am running out of lame excuses. At some point they will connect the dots and wonder why I don’t have the answers to questions about a project that is my idea. I still haven’t figured out what to tell them then.
Alfred: They know you support the new Lego Hall of the Mountain King Justice and Rehabilitation Center. They don’t have to ever know it was your idea.
Dim: That might be true since old Judge Under threw out the referendum committee’s appeal. What a blow that must have been for the obstructionists!
Alfred: Yeah, he didn’t even blink when he ignored what their appeal was all about, which was that the election board denied their petition because they didn’t think the question was appropriate.
Vincent: Ha, ha, he didn’t say one word about that. Instead, he thought the 3,700 people who signed it wanted everyone in the county to eat chocolate ice cream instead of vanilla.
Alfred: No, Vincent, no, he was using that as an example by saying that if those 3,700 people wanted something just because they signed a petition didn’t mean they should have it. That crazy judge even threw out that we would lose our representative form of government if we allowed people to petition. He ignored the fact the they signed the petition to give all the other county voters a chance to allow the prison plans to go ahead or stop them so that they could give more input to the plans.
Dim: Irregardless, it worked out in our favor. It always helps to know a lot of people in high places, eh Henny?
Henny: Um, Dim, do you mind if I offer a bit of advice? I just wanted to mention irregardless. When you speak in public, you must remember that if you want to be taken seriously, you should simply say regardless.
Dim: What? I don’t understand what you mean. You just want to mention what irregardless? And I should say what regardless? Why don’t you lawyers just cut to the chase instead of speaking in riddles?
Henny: Oh, never mind. I was just looking out for you.
Alfred: Well, Henny, you did a great job convincing the UMWA, the prison worker’s union, to show up for the rally we had.
Henny: Heck, all it took was for you to promise to agree to the prison worker’s union contract. They know how to get their bread buttered.
Vincent: I wonder what the union has to say about the ineptitude of the prison warden and guards who were tricked by that female inmate who told them she was someone else and they released her?
Alfred: Let’s move on, we have another issue. The county commissioners approved the revised zoning ordinance in 2006. In the zoning ordinance, there are airport hazard overlay guidelines which spell trouble for the new prison location. So far, our people have been able to throw out enough flack to convince a lot of people that the guidelines were not adopted. Even the local rag covered the meeting in 2006 and their story said that the Zone This Office said, “the new ordinance has an airport hazard overlay, which includes a circle to show the radius around the airport that cannot be infringed upon." I don’t mean to laugh at all the idiots who we snookered by having Sahara Roswell from the Zone This Office call Fatty Frogger from the local rag and tell her to write that the overlay does not exist and that it was never approved. Oh, yeah, it does pay to know people in high places and even low places. Ha, ha, yes, sometimes you can fool all the people. But, I still worry about those damn obstructionists who are determined to call us out on this one as things have gone in our favor so far.
Dim: Well, not all the time Alfred, I mean, look at how many times you guys have screwed up by telling the public that you have found the perfect place and have had to abandon that place and find another. Do you think the voters will let you get away with that again? You have spent close to two million dollars and you haven’t even come close to breaking ground.
Alfred: The public in Fayette County does not care how we spend their hard earned tax dollars. They simply don’t seem to care. They pay their taxes like the serfs that they are and ask no questions, no one does, not even Fatty Frogger. Only those damn obstructionists. But, we seem to even have them under control. Thank goodness for a complacent and complicit media. We are the rulers by default. No one gives a damn what we do!
Henny: Ha, ha, the local media, the local justice system, all the local boards, authorities and government offices, we own them all and no one cares.
Dim: Ha, ha, that was my plan. I just didn’t think it would be this easy. Just think of all the contracts we can award with the building of a new prison. Who ever thought food service and other mundane things like that could be so rewarding to our supporters?
Vincent: I don’t know, fellows, the prison referendum group has a few more days to appeal Judge Under’s decision to disallow the referendum asking the voters whether or not the prison plans should be halted in order to get the residents input into all decisions. Do you think they will?
A very good question, my dear readers, what do you think? Can Dim Monymony’s diabolical plan of county domination be halted? Perhaps we should heed what Edmund Burke, an Irish statesman who supported the cause of the American Revolutionaries, said in a speech in 1770, “when bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.” It has been oft repeated in various forms, such as this one, "the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."
And, so, dear readers, stay tuned for our next episode to be written very soon as further events unfold, perhaps as quickly as a building on pyrite rich soil, over a water filled mine shaft, can collapse. And, as always, please patronize our serial's sponsors, Bob Similiar Industrial Food Services, Chappy Chapman Cwick Chapel and Counseling Center Constructors, UMWA All Purpose Union Representation, and Videotronic Surveillance Camera Systems –“You can turn ‘em off at just the right time!”

Well I think a few people did stand up and say the truth about about all the lies that you read in the Heraldstandard. The lies came from Al Ambrosini and the warden and the union. And the Heraldstandard did its part to show how bad the prison is by taking pictures of stupid things that should have been repaired by the warden and were not good reasons to build new. But what made me laugh more than anything was old Neuman and his Adventures of Alfred and Vincent. Who could forget Alfred talking Vincent into going along with things just by offering him an ice cream cone. But what was really funny was comparing Al Ambrosini with Alfred E. Neuman from Mad Magazine. Those two are twins. Ambrosini should be ashame for what he tried to pull.
