A HODGEPODGE ON THE AIRPORT AND THEN SOME

UPDATE:

CARLOS QUINTANILLA LOSES MIND AND ONLY FURTHER EXTENDS DEFAMATION PER SE LAW SUIT AGAINST HIS MAKERS - TED PARKER,  JIM GALLAGHER, AND CATA PRESAS-GARIA

How can one human being be such a pathological liar, but yet find people to work with him? - they need a pathological liar to do their corrupt business.

To be clear I have not see or heard from Bob Hedrick (how long will it take you Carlito to spell this man's name correctly) since I along with a lot of the people ran into him in the court house on the day of Jessica Tetreau's first hearing with Atkinson.  Roberto Uresti and I asked him if he knew where the hearing was, since at the time he was more or less standing outside the courtroom where we thought the hearing was.  And to be clear, Hedrick can be convicted of the current charges and still sue Quitanilla and Jim Gallagher for accusing him of being a pedophile.  No such charge has ever been made by anyone. 

On for the record, the federal court house has a complete record of everyone who has been allowed anywhere near Hedrick since his arrest.

Jim Gallagher I am certain will not be happy with Carlito's latest tirade of lies and deception.

ORIGINAL POST

I had been holding on this story, but with the indictment of Pan Am President Hedrick, now is a good time to do this hodgepodge.

The thing about the Pan Am deal is the business model. South American countries are not happy with US customs and how long it is taking to get their agricultural products to clear customs. When I returned from Peru I provided Hedrick current information from both Peru and the US which showed the urgency in getting this matter resolved. I later came to learn he just filed it away in a draw. This made no sense to me.

On the China cargo deal, Hedrick told me at the court house that he just signed a contract to start flying the Chinese cargo in September. According the the Dispatch he was one of two companies China signed with and both agreements were not final. Again something did not sound right.

None of this changes the fact the business model is sound.

I have no idea if Hedrick is innocent or guilty. Unlike Carlos Quintanilla I have not been given access to the evidence and had it examined by an expert. But nonetheless Pan Am is showing incredible stupidity in how the matter is being handled.

A competently run company would replace Hedrick on an interim basis pending the final result of the criminal trial. I have made inquiries and Pan Am has no interest in dealing with the issue. Based on how Pan Am is responding to the events I believe it is time Brownsville dump Pan Am.

Brownsville cannot simply dump Pan Am. It needs to be aggressive in picking up on the business model and pursue the cargo companies currently flying in South America's agricultural products. I would begin by going to the Peruvian Embassy and informing them that Brownsville has a facility along with rail, ship, and trucking to receive and distribute their products.

In the hands of the right people Brownsville can convince the various South American countries and cargo companies to use Brownsville as an alternative point of clearance for some of the agricultural cargo.

BUT THE KICKER

We do not have a runway which can handle cargo planes beyond the 737. Larry Brownsville has mislead the people of Brownsville so many times on the issue of the runway expansion he is simply  not a credible voice any longer on the issue. Also given his total mess-up on the Fly Frontera issue, I do not believe having Larry Brown involved in any new service is in Brownsville's best interests. He does not seem to understand you need to check these companies out with a proper vetting.

New cargo standards require runways now be 12,000 feet, and not 10,000.  Until we have someone running the airport who will be aggressive on the runway issue and a city commission which understands a 12,000 runway would make Brownsville a major point of entry from South America, this sleeping giant in terms of job creation will remain just that, sleeping.

A NEW AIRLINE?

I have tied to get information from Larry Brown about the runway expansion and a possible 4th airline he seems to be hinting at. Larry Brown is part of this new group of public figures who believes he does not owe the public information beyond his controlled newsreels produced by the City of Brownsville.

Larry Brown has failed the City of Brownsville on the runway issue. A properly managed airport is an economic engine for any community. Larry Brown's mismanagement of the airport is costing Brownsville jobs. It is time a professional is brought in who will be aggressive on the runway and make it happen.

On this fourth airline he hinted at it in a controlled newsreel put out by the city.

First of all carlito - to the best of my knowledge no one has accused him of being a pediphile - second me calling for his removal from Pan Am and me calling for the city to move on past Pan Am is defending him - do you just have nothing to guide you morally?
