D Magazine's Frontburner

Do you like golf? How about alcohol? Are you a good manager? Do you appreciate rubbing shoulders with city officials? Would you like to own stuff with them? If you’ve answered yes to any of those questions, you should talk to Ronny Glanton about how to become him. He’s one of the owners of Sherrill Park Municipal Golf Club, friend to many City Council folks, golf pro, and president of Ronny Glanton Inc., which is responsible for alcohol sales at the club. Critics say there’s a lot of funny business going on at that place. I say, there’s nothing funny about earning $300K. Or maybe there is. Ask Glanton.

  3. Hmmm - You may not want to be Keff when he goes down with Slagel. They'll both be going to slam city - would you want to be Slagel's cell mate? The feds, I hear, are closing in.

    'The feds, I hear, are closing in.' Fact, rumor or wishful thinking?

    My guess - as rocks continue to be lifted and nasty secrets are exposed, is that ch-ch-ch-changes will be taking place at City Hall.

    Sharing cells? I doubt that. Not reelected? That's more like it.

  5. I do not understand why City Attorney Pete Smith still has a job.

  6. He as a job because of Gary Slagel - like Keffler, Smith knows where Gary's buried all the bodies over the years - the secret deals, pay to play, etc.

    If Slagel has Keffler fire Pete Smith, then Smith might go "states evidence". Even though the city attorney reports to the council, don't count on any of Slagel's 5 puppets to voice any concerns about Smith.

    Just remember voters - you get what you get. If you don't vote them out, then it will all CONTINUE!

  7. Hey, Ronnie, thanks for being a "team player." By the way, your quarterback wears rapist glasses.

  8. Buffoons! Let's get this straight. The City attorney is one of a handful of people selected to serve at the pleasure of the Council. Others include the City Manager, the City Secretary, and the Municipal Judge. The sad part is that the City Manager has been allowed to use these servants of the Council as his personal wrecking crew. Worse yet, the people see Keffler has seized control of every thing, but don't realize just how far he has overstepped his bounds. Of course, he couldn't step out of bounds and keep playing if the Council wasn't busy over-using the ball washer at the golf course.
