Newburyport’s ‘Grassy Knoll’

This last city council meeting and another one this immediate last Thursday, has uncovered some strange things that went on having to do with 8 Strong Street, the Board of Health and the Newburyport Historic District; especially dealing with the DCOD.

Brick and Tree Blog is not some glib Facebook page with spur of the moment accusations and off-the-cuff comments .(Though I am constantly being accused of doing just so.)

What we’re dealing with has the increasing ‘hint of conspiracy’ though probably not on the level of Watergate and Kennedy’s assassination.      But regardless, a lot of questions need to be asked:

Who are the players?      What is the sequence of actual events and what actually happened?      What laws were even violated or were they  just loopholes being exploited?     Is anything being ‘covered up’ or evidence destroyed?”     Were the sequence of events premeditated or by a step-by-step procedure?

And, to add a tiny hint of healthy governance; can anything be done to prevent this from happening again?

Don’t look into the Newburyport Daily News for any help; they are simply not an investigative paper.

I will do my best to compile everything but don’t expect another blog entry on the subject until I have discovered some of the questions that were posted above firmly answered.

  1. It could be exceedingly difficult to peel this onion. I suggest you begin at the end with the ultimate beneficiaries and slog through the primordial ooze from which they emerged.
