Have you ever played a board game with a four year old?
Snakes and Ladders which is now known as Chutes and Ladders was one of my Grandson’s favourite games. He has since moved to greater challenges but I recall an incident that took place during one of those game marathons that you can only have with a four year old.
Nana: ooh Brian, that big old chute sent you way back to the beginning of the game, I may just get a chance at winning this time
Brian: No Nana, you fall down the ladders and go up the chutes.
Brian: But Nana, this is how it works now.
Nana: But Brian that is changing the rules
Brian: These are the new rules Nana
There is a remarkable similarity between the game of Chutes and Ladders with my darling four year old grandson and the incompetent petty fools on the Board of Directors and its megalomaniac Management at Lincoln County Humane Society. It is acceptable and expected behavior from a four year old to act and think like a child. If a game is in jeopardy or the child does not like the way it is going then it is only natural to change up the rules to his advantage. What is unexpected is a group of so called mature, business people acting like four year olds. “If I can’t win, I am going to change the rules until I do win.” Regardless that the rules or in this case the By Laws have been perfectly good for years and years but now they are not supporting the whims and fancies of the present B of D, it is time to change the rules.
With full knowledge of their non compliance with a number of the present ByLaws, the Board of Directors of LCHS continue to blatantly disregard the wishes of the tax paying public and continue with their killing ways. They have now decided that breaking the rules isn’t sufficient, now they are going to rewrite the rules rather than face up to the fact they are not wanted or needed at LCHS. The public wants to Stop The Killing. The public wants to have a vote in order to say Stop The Killing.
The vast majority of the public revile the members of the Board of Directors for their ignorance, pettiness, childishness and downright stupidity, but mostly for their obvious lack of respect for the very people that support their little fiefdom and the animals they are killing with wanton abandon. The media has taken shots at them, the comments in the local paper are brutal. What possible joy can they be deriving from making complete and utter fools of themselves. I cannot begin to imagine how their families’ must feel having to listen to the comments, field the questions and defend their behavior.
The following are so called intelligent, informed individuals that presently sit on the Board of Directors LCHS, well four out of six at least but even the less than mensa duo must realize they are swimming against the current. How is it they just “do not get it”. How is it that Executive Director, Strooband isn’t grasping in to the fact that he is probably the single most despised person in this city. Granted he was pretty high in the rankings for years but now I think he has taken a pretty strong lead in that race.

FYI, Executive Director Kevin Strooband is well into his third month blithering about “due diligence” and “vetting” the membership applicants. I think it is time to do some “vetting” of my own. What do you folks think?
Ann, Joe, Mary-Lou, Nadia, Ed, and Christine, why don’t you just “pick up your ball and go home” No one wants to play with you anymore.
