SORRY CHARLIE ATKINSON PROVES POOR NUTRITION RESULTS IN IGNORANCE - DR. GOWEN OFFERS MEDICAL PROCEDURE

This is my second post today. The following was posted by Sorry Charlie Atkinson in the Herald.

"How can Gowen compare her non-profit organization to a sportspark project that belongs to the city of Brownsville. She just can't compare her non-profit organization where money and revenues are generated to a sportspark that benefits and advocates more healthy alternatives than eating a fresh tomato grown from a local farmer. Edward Camarillo backed Gowen by saying her non-profit benefits a healthier alternative than kids playing and exercising at the Sportpark. Give me a break. Camarillo needs to spend more time at the sportspark and he would see where adults and kids really shed their pounds. I won't let this go. There will be more debate on this issue. The city isn't in the business of donating 10k for non-profits. Pandora's box has just opened. We can't say no to anyone because Gowen would look bad if we just helped her organization and not others. She was wrong for subjecting the city to this fiasco of whats to come."
Charles Atkinson Brownsville City Commissioner
"I thought people like Ernie Hernandez got the picture that taxpayers would hold elected officials accountable for trying to make money off the citizens of Brownsville."
Sorry Charlie Atkinson has a drinking problem. It is apparent this has impacted his judgment. According to past press reports after leaving the hospital for problems related to his diabetes he went drinking. This is a drinking problem.

Nutrition is key to regulating adult diabetes. A $10,000.00 allocation to the Farmers Market will do more for me individually than millions to a sports park which is really only for the people on the north side of Brownsville.

The people of Southmost who are poor really do not have the resources to drive to the sports park. Even if they have transportation the cost of gas is simply too much.

A Farmers Market promotes healthy eating - something Sorry Charlie Atkinson opposes. I commend those who manage the Farmers Market for their donations to the community.
I have a choice - to consider the opinion of a medical doctor when it comes to nutrition or a man with a drinking problem who also happens to be a diabetic. Sorry Charlie Atkinson has so abused his body and mind, on the issue of healthcare, only a delusional person would consider his opinion.

I hope Dr. Gowen continues to kick but. It seems to me Dr. Gowen and Melissa Zamora, neither of whom are perfect, are kicking butt and Sorry Charlie Atkinson fears castration.

New rule, if you want to talk about the substance of my post your post will get through - but if you are going to use it as an excuse to level stupid insults at me - start your own blog and post them there -I am sure Brownsville will declare you the hero of humanity for your courage.

Also in light of what has been spent at teh Sports Park - I simply cannot understand the anger over this while Sorry Charlie gets a free ride on the Sprts Park.

I buy many of my fruits from a market at the Four Corners - I do support local - I am the one who asked people during these hard times to support the local restaurants over the chains - I have repeatedly asked that people buy guld shrimp and support our shrimpers.

So go post your stupid lies on your own blog and maybe Sorry Charlie Atkinson will request a special thank you be issued by COB for our heroics

YEEPEE-TOOTS HORN-THROWS CONFETTI!!!!

GREAT NEW RULE!!!

Some of past posts are very insulting and painful to read when they become personal attacks.

This is a forum for debating ideas presented and not for the venom mongers who use a poison pen to try to dehumanize others.

I totally agree that they should start their own blog or go to the other more seedy blog listed.

I think Mr.Atkinson needs to get good control of his diabetes because high blood readings can cause a person to be ill-tempered and cause major complications. Now I understand why he sometimes seems to be so angry and agitated.

JUST MY TWO CENTS WORTH.
HAVE A BEAUTIFUL DAY.

Now if they're kicking his butt, why does Charlie fear castration-- unless he's very oddly built. Let's do get control of our metaphors, eh?

Atkinson does not seem to be able to see beyond his own interests. It seems that if he doesn't care about it then no one should. I visited the farmer's market often and expect to again. I know people that regularly came from the Island and Harlingen area on Saturdays to visit the market and, while here, patronized other shops. Plus, it is a quality of life deal. I can find herbs and other items that are not always available (or never) in local grocery stores. It makes Brownsville a better place to live and isn't that part of what the city commission is charged with. Plus, the city subsidizes for profit companies all the time. Didn't we subsidize Continintal Airlines? And doesn't the city offer tax and utility deals to entice business? Atkinson cares about his interest but he doesn't care about mine. I encourage him to drink. Drink, Charlie, drink. Drink a lot.

It is a quality of life issue. When corporations relocate one concern is - will key personnel agree to move to the new location. BISD and UTB/TSC are a major problem in COB being being able to bring in new business.

Other factors are quality of life. Farmer's Markets are big deals in big cities. People want a Farmer's market - I will still shop at the place on the Four Corners because it is familiar and close.

All these farmers live outside of Brownsville's city limits. The lady shown on their video depicting helping out local farmers makes 90Ka year with Customs and immigration. They are selling their goods to poor people and other people who want to pay. If this was a true non-profit, why charge people for the fruits and vegetables. Gowen got this money from your tax dollars because she didn't want to go through the BCIC application process. They mentioned all the sponsors they had but they didn't tell us what they did with the money. Now Bobby, I never saw any people from Southmost at this farmer's market. Theyare all well to do people taking advantage of your tax dollars without having to worry about permits and rental fees. You are a hypocrite my friend. You are the sorry one.

The real Charlie Atkinson

I love the voie of ignorance - somthings never change which is why I believe ignorance is genetic - you cannot teach people out of ignorance.

Yes we all know what people from Southmost look like - they are different so there we all know based on appearance they never go to the Farmers' Market

I fail to understand why the lady that makes 90k cannot sell "to poor people". The people at Toyota, for example, make millions and they sell "to poor people".

This logic eludes me.

How does one recognize "the people from Southmost"?

This is America and everyone is entitled to sell or buy where ever they choose.


THANK YOU AND HAVE A BEAUTIFUL DAY.

Over 50,000 people live in Southmost. I guess they never leave their homes, don't read the newspaper, go to college, venture to the parks, or become city commissioner. Oops, except for Ricardo Longoria.

Mr. Atkinson, you have just insulted over 1/3 of Brownsville's population.

Way to go.

How much do you make with the same agency while you are blogging on co. time?

In many of the larger cities throughout the United States, farmer's markets have been quasi-town centers and in some instances (IE: Philadelphia's Reading Terminal Market, The Eastern Market in DC and the faous Sunday street markets in NYC), they remain one of the better places to shop. History tells us that the farmer's market concept was the original driver to what has become one of the finest civic transportation systems in the world.

How this concept can ever, possibly be called a bad thing is beyond me.

I think I have just seen the ultimate crab.

No one is saying it's a bad thing. What is being said throughout the city is it's wrong to use public money for an organization incorporated by an elected official. Her vote was the deciding vote as she should have abstained like Atkinson has in the past. As noted in the paper, her business address is on the city approved and city attorney approved contract. Also noted in the paper, her emolument from city services is grounds for removal.

That's not even getting to the point of in tough economic times with city revenue down, new expenditures for pet things that won't stimulate large job growth isn't the direction you take the city in. Wait until times get better.

Further, at what point does anyone realize the the city parks department, it's leaders and current policy is controlled and driven by Atkinson.

The Boyz II Men concert? The Sports Park? The children sports programs? All Atkinson.

His response to the Farmer's Market can easily be written off that it was not his idea, but look deeper to see if it is in competition with something he is promoting.

Did Atkinson vote for or against giving taxpayers money to the private corporation known as American Airlines?

american airlines entered into an agreement with GBIC, not the city's general fund. There is a difference of where the money comes from

BobbyWC said...

Is it taxpayers money? The taxpayer is the taxpayer regardless of which budget you put the money. AA was a good deal - I am not complaining about AA - my point is simple - we use taxpayer money to help private corporations - period
