I read the article in the Cape Cod Times, it's all true he was treated so badly and I hope he will shout out

For the 30 kids getting the 300000. for wee care, more welfare to the working class of the Town. While others
ride the system, they'll be dropping the kids off at wee care so they can work 3 jobs to pay the bills. Otherwise they
could stay home and spend real time with their kids. Welfare for the working class.

This is to the DPW. Snow plows push snow up so high in front of driveways that people cannot get their car

And so I have found as a contractor that one bad apple in Community Development spells trouble. When G. McPherson
was running the show, people changed. It became chaotic, more unpredictable and harder to get things done. She altered the
behavior downstairs and others became themselves toxic. The bad attitude and disregard spread in this department.
How long will it take to get back to what it used to be before McPherson ran this show. Bad behavior spreads and it did.

I feel very reassured (sarcasm) knowing that some people are out there laughing and minimilizing a death threat,
because it was indeed a death threat. Telling someone you are going to shoot them in the head is a death threat.
This is a big deal, this is a serious problem and to try and reduce this to the normal winter PTown bullshit rumor mill is
not fair. This is an incident above and beyond drunken winter boredom. For a town thats supposedly a safe haven
and supposedly takes care of its own, the person who was threatened sure doesnt feel taken care of when the man who threatened
his life still has his job. He sure doesnt feel taken care of when other coworkers make snide comments because they
are old friends with the man who threatened him. He sure doesnt feel protected when he has to deal with harassment in
the work place by the friends of the other man. So Provincetown employs people who threaten bully and intimidate coworkers
to the point that said coworker required police escorts to work in the morning? Way to take take of your people Town
of Provincetown. That man should have been terminated immediately with no second thoughts on the matter. Good
job with zero tolerance.

I drove to Herring Cove Beach yesterday and was heartbroken when I saw that the parking lot was almost gone. I think

sunsets, whale watching from shore. End of an era. Sigh.

This is hilarious. If you knew all of the facts youd understand just how crazy the whole situation really is.
Im hopeful and optimistic that the towns process will work this out in the correct manner but still, at the end of the day,
someone did threaten anothers life. Its a serious issue, lets hope its treated as such. This isnt some pissing
contest, this is a problem thats effected work environment as well as home environment for some people. I also was under
the impression that this whole thing is supposedly anonymous so how would someone know if a person is responding to their
own comments? Ahhhh PTown and its dirty little secrets. Lets just wait and see what actually happens at the end
of this. If it isnt turf wars and real estate rumors then apparently it doesnt matter? Well see.
Re: How Can This Happen?

"Because it didn't happen.
You know the "facts" because you're pushing the issue for different
reasons, all personal between you and your supervisor and this person along with anyone else you both don't like. Grow up,
grow a pair, deal with internal personel matters internally and stop whining on an anonymous blog when you don't get your
way. Do your own job, stop posting crap on social media sites like Facebook and mind your own business."
First of all, it DID happen. Second of all, I just happen to indeed know all of the facts and third of all this became
much more than an internal work matter when it spilled over into personal home life. This incident has been simmering for
weeks and with any luck, the work related interpersonal matters will be settled this week. But, and this is a big but,
just because the work part of this issue will be settled this week, that does not mean the safety of the man who was threatened
and his family will feel any safer or secure. A threat to shoot someone in the head is much much more than a work issue,
that is a threat on someones life. Thats a death threat. I can assure you that this issue was not pushed for any
internal personell matters between anyone and their supervisor. In fact, before this issue snowballed into insanity
and death threats, it was being handled with the intent to seek counseling and assistance for this person rather than immediate
was offered, help was declined.
And now we end up here, with an employee
who threatens the life of another employee and has caused a toxic, hostile and unsafe work environment. Do YOU think
you know all the facts? Because I guarantee you dont unless you are one of a very few specific people. I may or
may not be one of those very specific people. What I will not allow is any more harassment by this man who is currently
waiting for the town to deal with it. Whoever said civil suits may be flying was very much correct. I dont feel
like many are fully grasping the big picture here. Employee X has a history of harassment and unstable behavior.
Help was offered, counseling was offered, yet the threats and nonsense continued. I hope with every ounce of my being
that lessons were learned and decisions will be thought out more in the future but to try and reduce this issue to a spat
between two workers, one trying to get the other fired for any type of personal gain is absolutely ludicrous. This.
. Death. Threat. It needs to be taken seriously.

Town Planner- Here We Go Again!

Yes, $30,000 of your tax dollars to have your town manager learn how to handle his emotional outbursts

Usually, it takes a number of days for a submission to be posted here on this site for all to read. Then it
takes a few more for the responses to be posted. Looks like the guy posting crap about town employees posted his original
comments and then answered his own post 3 minutes later. That would seem impossible considering the comments take as long
as they do to be posted.
Seems more like agenda driven comments, someone that is too focused on screwing his coworker,
someone that can't seem to shut up about matters he shouldn't be discussing. Same guy posted crap in here last week and got
no responses so now responds to his own posts with more crap.

Town employee??! WTF is going on with these guys? Hoping someone is doing something....
Yes this is 100%
true and Im told the man who did the threatening currently is on paid leave. Termination should have been a guarantee,
lets see if the town of provincetown fails to act accordingly yet AGAIN. Nobody, I repeat NOBODY, should be allowed
to keep a position for the town when they threaten to shoot another employee. Maybe a little nepotism is going on here.
Favoritism at the least, the good ol boy network protecting one of their own. Somebody for sure is covering for this
man considering he hasnt been fired and this incident happened weeks ago. A man cannot threaten another mans life.
If this isnt settled soon I see civil suits flying left and right, mark my words.
How Can This Happen?

Are you aware that a town employee threatened to shoot another employee in the head and that the employee
who did the threatening has not been terminated? In this day and age of school shootings and rampant violence, why is

I Too Was Shocked at the Conservation Agent Tim Famulare
9:52 pm est
Where does he come from? Who hired him? This last idea of his concerning the deck at Sal's confused me--and made
me question his credentials and understanding of this town. And wasn't he the one who failed to post this case within the
needed time frame and then had to cancel the case at the previous meeting? Who is pulling his strings? Why should receiving
a fair hearing on too many boards is a problem in Provincetown. Why, indeed!
He should be ashamed of this off-the-wall
request, no demand, that he insisted be added to the approval of the deck that was removed by the contractor for 101 Commercial
to accomplish his renovations. It was Cape Cod docks that removed the deck and also the seawall and promised to rebuild and
install a new deck by January 2016. But Cape Cod docks just washed their hands of this flagrant act and then Greg Connors
legally misrepresented himself by stating in legal documents that the removal of the deck had nothing to do with him. "Well,
it surely did and Cape Cod Docks was doing his bidding and did remove the entire deck and also destroyed the sea wall that
will continue to cause flooding for abutters and neighbors across the street.
I was glad to see more than 120 people
attend this Conservation meeting and over 70 letters sent in favor of re-installing the deck. Those who know the truth, know.

There will Be No FEMA Monies for Provincetown
9:45 pm est
Nor for any other community. seems we needed even more damage--up to $9 million and we only had $5.9 million.
this will certainly bring frustration to the many in Provincetown who suffered much from the flooding. Let me mention
that a phone call to Sarah Peake and another to Julian Cyr is not enough political pressure on the governor. What else did
our town "leaders" do beside write a report of damages!!
Sadly, you are on your own! there is need for
more accountability. seems the town simply turned away and quickly forgot about the pain, financial loss and damage done to
many. It's not enough to sit in an office and talk and talk. It takes pointed and strategic action and political clout. Obviously
