'BS' from the APA 'greenies'
June 22, 2011 - Jessica Collier
Wow, it’s taking me forever to post anything today. I think the Internet connection gets worse when the weather gets bad or something.
John Caffry is continuing his cross-examination of Jeff Anthony and Kevin Franke this morning, and things have been a little contentious.
One of the more explosive moments was when Caffry introduced an email exchange between Franke, local real estate dude Mike Damp, and Foxman.
Franke wrote to Damp in Sept. 2005: “I am responding to some BS comments one of the APA ‘greenies’ had in their request for additional information.”
Caffry had a bit of a field day with that. He asked what BS stood for, and when Franke said it was an expletive, Caffry said, “Something to do with cow manure perhaps?”
Yuk yuk yuk.
Moving on to “greenies,” he asked if he meant it as an insult to Sunita Halasz, the particular APA “greenie” he was referring to. Franke said no, he just thought she had a “particular bent,” and was putting too much emphasis on the environmental parts of the APA Act while ignoring the economic concerns.
Common feelings, I think, throughout our area. We hear this type of talk in Tupper Lake frequently, but not so much in professional talk. It’s embarrassing for it to come out in a formal setting like this where people would typically try to be a little more civil.
EDIT: Name spelling corrected on 6/23.
