LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Today, there’s another conspiracy; the Hillmoor conspiracy, except in this variation the Masters of Deception have plotted to misdirect the current council to have Freed (White River Holdings) drop his lawsuit first, and then Hartz and Draper would get the map and zoning changed. They believed they could easily deceive this council into conciliating, just like they outwitted the council in 2011. Except this time the contract or memorandum of understanding they made with Freed was being kept secret from everybody, even the city council; just disclosing the MOU to their special acolytes who could keep their secret. Plus, they could team up with Mike Slaveny and Vandewalle & Associates to use the comprehensive plan update process as a subterfuge for satisfying their requirements in the arrangement with Fred Slavney, as a city planner. Slavney is part of the “City Staff” that reviews and inspects all the projects submitted to the City for permit approval. If there is a violation or non-compliance, Slavney can then offer his services at Vandewalle, for a fee, to employ his special “talents” on the project to be sure the project gets approved. Then, when the project goes to the plan commission and city council, Mike Slavney is the expert authority they consult to judge whether the project meets code and should be approved.
So, whether Mr. Slavney tweaks a plan or totally creates the plan, he’s going to give it his blessing when the time comes to recommend approval.

We now have the Dead Sea and if the experts are correct, shall soon have the Dead Lake. Please tell me how an invasive species like Starry Stonewort can outsmart a group of supposedly intelligent wealthy lakefront homeowners?
Well, I guess the lakefront properties on Lake Como will soon be much more valuable! Tom Kincaid, Lake Geneva, Wisconsin
