DEK: A letter from Provincetown
Sal’s Place: Money and Meanness in the New Ptown."
By Peter Manso
The first thing you notice
when you walk into the resurrected Sal’s Place, in the heart of Provincetown’s West End, is the hustle and bustle
of a hot restaurant: the place is packed, the noise level is high, and the servers scoot nonstop to and from the close-set
tables. There’s a museum-quality Hawthorne and other class art on the walls, but the place still has a fish shack feel,
with exposed rafters and the rhythmic slop of the bay against the pilings on which the waterfront building partially sits.
And the food—the Brodetto or Zuppa di Pesce that one Facebook blogger raves about as “so wonderful that Marcella
[Hazen] herself would flip,”—well, let me tell you, the Zuppa is so sweet, so transporting in its plummy, tomato-y
tannic richness as to have made Sal’s the vacation spot’s dining destination of choice near overnight.
All this was pretty much the word around town last summer when the fifty-four year old Sal’s Place reopened under
new management. But the food wasn’t the only things people were talking about. There were also whispers that the owner—a
single, self-described blue-collar woman who’d originally arrived in Boston from Tipperary at age 17—was at war
with her neighbors—four wealthy men, all gay, who had recently bought the abutting properties for summer party pads,
and wanted the place dead and shuttered. In fact, depending on who you knew, you might have heard about bouts of property
destruction, interminable delays for the restaurant’s opening, and armies of lawyers getting rich on both sides.
As the not-so-secret knock-down-drag-out tumbled into public
view, eating there became an almost political act. Now, after simmering all winter, locals in P-Town are waiting for the hostilities
to start afresh.
One resident called the quarrel
the “worst case of bullying” he’d come across in his 50 years in town. But you could just as well call the
fight over Sal’s place a sort of battle for Provincetown’s soul in miniature—a David and Goliath story about
whether the artists, fishermen, and non-mainstream types of all persuasions were still welcome in the new Ptown. Or is this
haven at the end of the Cape destined to become an exclusive enclave for the rich gay elite?

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
the haters and get the money he deserves. It is really despicable how this kind of behavior continues in the new administration.
Good luck, you conducted yourself with dignity and grace and look where it got you!
"It's For the Kids"
5:07 pm edt
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.

Do we have a list of people running for open seats this year?
4:29 pm edt
Is it necessary for the police to patrol in sectors when the town is only 3 miles long? Hmmm who's thought

Time to Clean House
4:19 pm edt
McPherson is gone. Now clean house. all those who supporter and were threatened by her, time to leave. You
had no balls then and you have no balls now. Sad but true and you should go or be pushed out.
this is a great town
that needs great leadership. It is not there. A vacuum. so bring in the new. Now.
4:17 pm edt
This is to the DPW. Snow plows push snow up so high in front of driveways that people cannot get their car
out. Then off-duty DPW workers go around after hours and charge people to clear the driveway. In one case, an elderly woman
was charged $100 for the ten minutes it took to clear the snow that he had pushed there a few hours before. What a racket!!
4:16 pm edt
I just heard---she's gone
gone from here, of course but gone from there. that is great news. payback
is a bitch, isn't it, Gloria? I'd say so.
Re: Did We Win the Lottery?

Continuation of previous post. A rough count of approximately $5 million in additional article spending glancing
through the warrant. I cant afford that care free spending by the town, glad all of you are flush with cash.
Did We Win the Lottery?

Glanced at the Town meeting warrant. Dang the money is flowing out like we are rich, did we win the
One Rotten Apple Spoils the Bunch
4:09 pm edt
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.

"Maybe in this city, they expect professionals to act as professionals. Maybe the city council wasn't
interested in her offerings!"
You, sir, are a revolting excuse for a human being, and a disgusting
psychopathic hatred of women. Finally, you area gutless wonder who hasn't the courage to sign his own name Cretins
like you are the reason why this country is now the "sh... hole" it has become.
