As expected from Directors Jack Unger and Victoria Paulsen...
yet another failure.
Newberry CSD board holds
another long blah-blah meeting.

Closing-out the year 2020
As the year 2020 was closed out, it will be remembered for many
things. The emergence of COVID-19, the Black Lives Matter movement,
and Donald Trump's downfall from America's grace... to name a few.
Locally, the biggest 2020 event was undoubtedly the Newberry
CSD's lack of 20-20 vision to properly handle the solar litigation. That was
so monumentally screwed-up by the CSD board that Newberry will be damaged
by it for decades to come.
With last November's insane reelection of one of the bumblers
that orchestrated the disaster, which left tens of millions of dollars for Newberry's
needed compensation abandoned on the negotiation table, the election highlighted how
severely unknowledgeable the Newberry voters are to the CSD's chronically
The CSD foolishly bypassed millions for serious Newberry
infrastructures, such as a new Civic Hub, a greatly enhanced fire department, medical
assistance, businesses, jobs... things that underserved and disadvantaged Newberry
Springs desperately needs.
The rural Newberry ghetto received the incompetence it elected.
Newberry will remain a squalor, economically depressed, and disadvantaged community
until the voters become educated.
December's CSD board highlights.
Under the persuasion of Jack Unger, the CSD is purchasing and
installing 5 Purple Air monitors for up to $2,000. This is despite Newberry
Springs already having 9 Purple Air monitors, two operated by the CSD itself,
in Newberry Springs.
The existing monitors are already sufficient. Unger's
emphasis should be spending on the collection and processing of the data that
is already being accumulated.
Jack Unger, with committee member Victoria Paulsen, submitted their
Civic Hub Strategic Plan. Despite nearly a year-and-a-half in the making, their
effort to establish meaningful progress for a new civic center fell flat. While
their effort has organized some existing data for possible future use, their intended
purpose bombed due to incompetence.
While Unger's and Paulsen's committee has been officially closed
and disbanded by the CSD, some modifications to their committee's report are to be
made and submitted at the next board meeting.
Director Paulsen pontificated that the committee should be recognized for
doing such a great job. (Of course, the praising would include her as a committee
Board chairman Robert Springer thanked retiring board member
Larry Clark for his previous service as a CSD director.
Director Clark was a no-show for six-consecutive board sessions
in 2020 (yet he collected his stipends) and he only reappeared after the board
went to ZOOM meetings.
Clark was also a strong proponent for the Daggett solar project
and usually simply voted following the lead of others.
January's CSD board meeting was canceled
due to impacts of COVID-19.
