And On, and On, and On...
11:12 am est
January 20th, and the new postings are all the same old crybabying...personal attacks on Yingling and
Panagore and any other Town officials you don't like, bitching about one lousy CVS and 11 parking spaces, whine, whine, moan...Must
be nice to have all that time to sit on your asses and bitch because the town doesn't cater to your whims. Pathetic.
All this worry about the "character" of the town? This town hasn't had much of that in 20 years..GET A LIFE.
Good Job BOS
11:10 am est
So CVS in the Riley's Building and now a Dunkin Donuts in the Tedeschi's Building, that's what I'm talking
about Folks. Let's get this town humming in the winter. Good job BOS.
Panagore You Nailed it!
11:08 am est
Your empty promises and bloviating about your success make you look more foolish than TRUMP.
And that takes a lot!
Yingling Proud of Town Planner
11:06 am est
Yinlging is taking CREDIT for hiring Gloria, his ex girlfriend. She did NOTHING for the LCP and as
for helping fix our zoning....Ask 350 Bradford, Sals, and of course many others who have felt her "help."

To the poster who wrote about Georges Pizza, I agree 100%!
9:46 pm est
The Board of Selectmen owe the community an explanation on how the current box store bylaw remains valid
per town manager's comments.
The only concessions I can see that CVS made were limited signage, which they've done
many times before, and limiting their brand product sale to no greater than 50%, which is really no concession of you've been
in CVS stores.
The BOS need to inform the community, and more importantly the ZBA and Planning Board in order to
reduce future litigation expense, the allowable parameters of the bylaw.
Is it really a paper tiger bylaw?

FROM GEORGE ORWELL'S NOVEL ENTITLED "1984"-WRITTEN IN 1948
The people will not
revolt. They will not look up from their screens long enough to notice what's happening. Orwell didn't have a crystal ball,
what he did have was an understanding of the human condition and its weakness. Apathy.
Need for Proper Oversight
9:43 pm est
Why has the PBG not provided year-end financial statements for their fiscal year that ended September
They claim to have ended the year in the black, but offer no back up. (What about the folks who
paid to sponsor the vacation guide that never materialized?)
The VSB should be paying attention and requesting
an accounting of town funds now.
Re: It Doesn't Compute

One more thing!
.............and don't forget 11 parking spots gone!
is the town for anyway, give people a reason to stay and get something from it, not be a total sell out to the tourists!
9:37 pm est
Seems the retreat the Town Manager was sent to didn't do much good, nice try Selectmen, add this to
the lack of preparedness for the flooding, the CVS and personnel quitting all the time..........you got some 'splaining to
To: Town Manager

"Dear Mr. Panagore,I just read you turned comments off on another post on Town Talk.
Worse, calling Citizen conversation a 'side show' is insulting at best to those in the conversation."
It's actually worse than this. He's blatantly picking sides and now he's also lying to people.
That post about CVS? The woman in question is NOT who her name is on Facebook. She might be a real human, but she was seriously
misrepresenting herself. The fact that it's not her real name (it's a shortened version) is, in fact, violating Facebook rules.
She also is NOT from Provincetown, but lives on Harry Kemp in affordable housing and is from East
Falmouth, again, NOT from Provincetown. She won a lottery, she didn't "spend some time up Cape" because that was
where she lived until she got the slot. Did he mention any of this? No, he just picked sides. Don't we have enough people
not from Town telling us all what to do, including second homeowners?
Now we have the Town Manager
running a town-sponsored page shutting down threads and telling actual residents and property owners what they can and cannot
say? How is this legal? We couldn't pass a noise ordinance because it violated f! ree speech. How is Town Talk not violating
free speech when it's run by the town manager in a very forward town sponsored way? Can someone answer this question?????
Parking Space Market Rate
9:31 pm est
I am not convinced the market rate for a parking space is $150,000. Show me the comparable sales.
I would estimate the market rate is more in a range of $40,000 to $50,000.
Yingling Hurts Arm Patting Himself on the Back

Remember your BOS meeting?

Yingling Proud of Town Planner
9:26 pm est
In case you missed it, Yingling patted himself on the back for the foresight to hire Gloria. Never
mind that they were dating at the time, but don't forget the single purpose she was hired: TO REWRITE THE LCP.
THE CAPE COD TIMES Oct 4, 2013:
Town officials have hired
a new planner from the city of Concord, N.H.
PROVINCETOWN Town officials have hired a new planner from the
city of Concord, N.H.
Gloria McPherson will begin work as Provincetowns town planner Oct. 15. Officials hired a
planner, a new position, to make sure the updating of the Local Comprehensive Plan goes smoothly, Provincetown Assistant Town
Manager David Gardner said. The plan is meant to serve as a guideline for setting policies and objectives for the town.
McPherson, who has been Concords city planner for two years, will learn around $65,000 in Provincetown, Gardner said.
NO LCP and a trail of litigation behind her, Gloria is gone. GREAT JOB SELECTMAN YINGLING!
Yingling for BoS
9:25 pm est
Thank you for hiring Gloria! Your Vision for the Town is awesome and she did a great job the LCP!
I hope you date someone else as good as her.
And a BIGGER THANK YOU for giving away the Community Center.
We don't need that tired old building.
Let me know if you need help moving into Harbor Hill!
your friend in Truro.

Maybe our TM should have an OPEN House chat for the common folks who live here and call this our HOME,
maybe at the Canteen, he spends most of his time there anyway! It's all smoke and mirrors with this guy!
It Doesn't Compute
9:18 pm est
Outrageous that parking spaces were taken away for a bike lane. The probability of the bike lane being
used is next to zero. Most of them love flying down Commercial Street terrifying tourists.
the head meter maid at town hall would have not done something to influence the committee and the BOS.
sad this town is so poorly managed.
It Doesn't Compute
9:16 pm est
Taking eleven spaces for a bicycle lane is insane! There's so limited parking as it is! It's not too
late to reverse the mistake! The Bd. of Selectmen should do just that! people always rode bikes around here's one in &
out of traffic! No reason why that should change! We are all on a risk,whether we're walking,driving a car,walking our pets,or
bicycling! Don't be select in judging who gets special preference!
