The Gang who couldn’t tell time

The Gang who couldn’t tell time

Jamie Page attended yesterday's press conference held by the Donovan/Nobles gang where they essentially cried that they shouldn't be penalized for not knowing how to tell time. His tale of their journey to find someone, anyone, to accept their petition signatures is hilarious. The motley crew of [...]

Maritime Film tells story of the park

Maritime Film tells story of the park

With the help of Barnes West, we produced a film on the Vince Whibbs, Sr. Community Maritime Park---how it started, who worked on it, why it's named for Vince Whibbs, Sr., etc. It seems like every six months we have to fend off another revision of history and the facts about this public-private [...]

What Charlie Fairchild said about Maritime Park in 2005

What Charlie Fairchild said about Maritime Park in 2005

The year was 2005. Pensacola had finished a series of town hall meetings on a proposed community maritime park. Charlie Fairchild, C.C. Elebash and Marty Donovan were working behind the scenes to defeat the project. I actually interviewed Fairchild in July 2005 about the project ("Save Our City," [...]

If Marty and Jack didn’t like the stadium…

The right to petition a Pensacola City Council decision is not one that should be taken lightly. If the citizens have voiced their concerns in the hearings involving a decisions, participated in the process and the council votes against their wishes, then a petition is the only course. That isn't [...]

Donovan/Nobles PAC is formed

It's Park Yes Stadium No. And here is the website: http://www.parkyesstadiumno.com/ City Attorney Rusty Wells, according to PNJ reporter Jamie Page, has determined the former city councilmen Marty Donovan and Jack Nobles have until August 20 to turn in their petition signatures. The petition [...]

CMP 101

The blog has grown beyond Northwest Florida. We are approaching a million page views a month. Some of the new readers have been drawn here because of The Daily Beast and my coverage of the BP oil disaster. Others have been attracted by my investigations into the Billings murders. When I cover [...]

PYP affirms support of maritime stadium

Press Release: Pensacola Young Professionals today affirmed a decision made in 2006 to support the Community Maritime Park. Kristine Karsten, President of Pensacola Young Professionals, met with vice-presidents, team chairs and members and outlined the history of PYP’s involvement with the [...]

Charles Fairchild, secret partner with Donovan & Nobles

I acquired these emails from Save Our City & No Boss Mayor co-founder Charlie Fairchild to an out-of-town web designer. Looks like Charlie, Marty and Jack have been scheming hard while the rest of us have been fighting for this community. So sad---those guys can't stand being out of the limelight. [...]

CMP: Stop the pettiness and bullying

Pensacola had a head start over the rest of North America 451 years ago. When DeLuna founded Pensacola, there was no New York, Boston, Chicago, New Orleans or Orlando...just Pensacola. When the first settlement failed, it took another 135 years for Spain to comeback to Northwest Florida. By then, [...]

Buzz: Is Donovan lying about signatures?

He's baaaaaaaaack. Former City Councilman Marty Donovan is trying yet another petition drive against the Community Maritime Park. This time he's brought with Jack Nobles, Byron Kessler, Todd Synder, Dorothy Rowe, Jackie Johnston, Mark Greskovich, Malcolm Johnston, Patricia McGrath and Justin [...]

PNJ upset over delays with emails

PNJ upset over delays with emails

The Pensacola News Journal, this area's daily marketing solution, has a good story on behind the scenes of Scott Davison's negotiations to find deep pockets to get the necessary performance bond for the Community Maritime Park. Part of the story is a timeline on the month it took reporter Jamie [...]

Stadium adds income to CMP

All profits from the Pensacola Pelicans will go to the operations and maintenance of the Community Maritime Park. There is no such agreement anywhere in minor or major league baseball. The closest thing may be in the NFL with the Green Bay Packers, which is publicly owned by individual residents of [...]
