SeeClickSubpar: No Credit or Credibility

I sat through the July 8, 2014 Board of Selectmen’s meeting from 7:00 p.m. until 10:45 p.m., and in the last 20 minutes or so the manager of the Unicorn and Stoneham Oaks Golf Courses waxed poetical about how diligently the courses are managed, including how they do accept credit cards, contrary to complaints that indicated otherwise. I’d imagine there are probably a lot of people “teed off” that less than 24 hours later, they were met with this sign at Stoneham Oaks:

This is almost as bad as the Marble Street Deli pig. In fact, why don’t we adopt the Marble Piggy as the Stoneham Mascot for all people, businesses and departments that blatantly and arrogantly disrespect our community? Perhaps I’ll set up a Piggy Rating Scale. For now, I think Marble Piggy should be at the Oaks, holding the Oaks sign.

So: Misleading the Board of Selectmen about credit cards always being accepted? Arguing with our Town Moderator regarding the credit card and conditions issues? Reporting miraculous and dramatic increase in revenues in the month of June alone, after credit cards became accepted (leading one to have to wonder how the cash was being handled prior to June…), yet can’t afford better maintenance and staff?

Looks like our Town got quite the “chunk.”

  1. The ranger comes by and collects $10 cash??? There needs to be more oversight of this course and, obviously, the town should not depend on the word of the course manager. There should be a receipt given to each person who chooses to play and that receipt should be given to the “ranger” before the person is able to play golf. How many people go out to play without paying? Disgusting situation.
