Instant Karma

Friday, January 27th, 2012

Now that the media frenzy surrounding Lancaster Town Administrator Orlando Pacheco’s bawdy adventure has died down I’ll give it one last crack.

Pacheco has of course been a driving force behind closing Clinton’s rifle range, as such I have my own opinion of his actions. (nothing personal as I don’t know the guy).  I’d like nothing better than for Lancaster to hire a new Town Administrator as Mr. Pacheco has cost the Town of Clinton as well as the Clinton Fish & Game Protective Association many dollars and energy in litigation to try and maintain the legal use of our circa 1924 rifle range.

Instead of compromise he’s pitted the towns against each other for the benefit and appeasement of the  few petulant, squeaky wheels that live at the S.Meadow quasi- private enclave.

If Mr. Pacheco had any class whatsoever he’d fall on his proverbial sword and abdicate his position. He’s brought shame and more media attention than a presidential campaign to Lancaster. I work far from Central Massachusetts and have been asked numerous times if Clinton was near Lancaster, and did I hear about the Lancaster TA’s  gross bark encrusted pictures that were on the Channel 4 nightly news.

In the end Lancaster and its BOS are doing themselves a disservice by keeping an official that’s a laughing stock around the world. Who the hell could sit across the desk from him and work out business after seeing  pictures of a bark covered Pacheco just roused from his passed out stupor. He has no integrity left, especially after lying in November and saying he had food poisoning from eating somewhere in Westboro.

Do I believe in Karma – you bet I do.

Stuffed Suits, Lawsuits and Arrogance

Friday, March 26th, 2010

Well Lancaster’s at it again, the town of Lancaster has filed a lawsuit against the Town of Clinton and it’s own Zoning Board of Appeals. The newspaper account lists Lancaster as the plaintiff through its building commissioner Peter Munro.

It’s beyond belief, the Lancaster ZBA who was required to setup a hearing within 65 days of the filing of an appeal by Clinton has now led the building commissioner to file suit against them(ZBA) and the town of Clinton.  All because they couldn’t get their act together and have the hearing in a timely manner which resulted in constructive approval. (of Clinton’s Appeal)

If one is to believe the party line, then Peter Munro, The building commissioner was supposedly “aggrieved” by Clinton’s claim as well as by the ZBA’s not having the hearing 65 days after the filing by Clinton, what a joke!  My opinion is the tail is wagging the dog, that is, Mr. Orlando Pacheco Lancaster’s  Town Manager orchestrated this bogus lawsuit because he is acting like a petulant child, showing his arrogant and blatant disregard for the Clinton Police Force and therefore the town. I’m sure he told HIS BOS that he was going to have Mr. Munro file suit and they agreed like good little pawns, but make no mistake, Pacheco is the puppet-master, pulling all the strings behind the scenes in my opinion.  I do wonder who is paying the price for his dog and pony show?

Was Mr. Munro really “aggrieved” not in my opinion, it’s just the next move, actually Orlando’s next move in a hallucinogenic game of chess Lancaster is playing with the Town of Clinton. They had the audacity to deem their residentially zoned firing range “legal” and issue themselves  a special permit at a hearing last year and then didn’t apply the same logic or precedence to the Clinton range, what hypocrisy.  We have ours and you can’t have yours.

Clinton has contended that the Police should be able to qualify at the rifle range and were willing to set parameters such as hours of operation and whatever else was brought to the table…Lancaster refused, talk about belligerent behavior.  Hopefully Clinton will win the suit and the deafening silence will go away, replaced by officers qualifying with their firearms to help keep the population of Clinton safe.
