In Other News…Fawn Park (Yawn…)

So now I hear that the park owner has been repeatedly calling the facilitator of the meeting-gone-bad. Allegedly he has apologized, or is attempting to apologize, for his bad behavior.

Okay, good…

I wonder if anyone actually answers the phone anymore when the guy calls.

Personally, I can’t remember how many times I have heard about abuse to town leaders and residents over the past year from this guy. Ya know, the easy thing would be to not behave badly in the first place.

So, I just have to ask, what about apologies to all the other people who have been treated poorly, called bad names, received nasty phone calls, nasty letters, and even horrible faxes?

Did the Marine Color Guard ever get apologies? Anyone else? I know of only one who told me she got an apology after multiple horrible experiences with the man via the communication channels I listed above. Her husband would deck the guy if they ever come face to face.

Anyway, I figure if someone behaves poorly multiple times with leaders and residents–that it is a predictable pattern and will probably happen again.

If it happens once, okay–you get the benefit of the doubt since everyone has bad days. BUT in this case it has been happening on an ongoing basis. What was that phrase popularized some time back?

I know, I know–this is not a fitness or food issue–but stop the insanity is a good phrase…

Does anyone else find it odd that he has a demand for an apology (or something like that–blood maybe?) from the Big Bear resident who pissed him off so badly–and then continues to behave poorly with everyone else?

In the animal training world we call that displaced aggression…

My feeling is that this whole thing is getting old. Keep the park, sell the park, who knows what will happen? Anyone still interested in participating in the drama?

The bottom line? The park is still closed.

    I agree with your displaced anger theory. usually when someone act out like this they are really upset about another matter. It is too bad that this person is having the equivalent of a toddler temper tantrum, and embarassing themselves in the process, in front of the entire community. Maybe some therapy is in order????

    I don’t know about therapy but a wake up call is in order. The owner seems to think that buying the park means he bought the town and everyone in it. Ownership brings responsibility not just grovelling gratitude.

    I don’t know about therapy but a wake up call is certainly in order. The owner seems to think that in buying the park he bought the whole town and the people in it. Ownership brings responsibility not just grovelling gratitude.

    Marty Ingles and Shirley Jones did a great thing when they conceived the idea of Fawn Park and made it a reality. It’s really a shame that so many people seem to be more interested in insulting each other instead of thinking about the future. No one is perfect, so can’t we all just ignore each others imperfect moments and focus on getting something good done. I think it is time that all involved swallow their pride and think about the future of the community instead of trying to get even with each other.

    Since Marty Ingles and Shirley Jones are actually in control of the community park, I am hoping that they will rise above the petty fighting and unilaterally come up with a solution to the problem.

    Think of the big picture. Is Fawnskin going to have a Fawn Park in its future or will the petty fighting and name calling prevail? I hope its the park. Few will remember the squabble in the future, but all will enjoy the park.
