We are hearing many more rumors from our front doorstep rumor mill sources where many juicy news informational items usually get dropped off during the darkness of night now and then. But this one is coming from a very reliable doorstep source that’s telling us that the Chief’s resignation is no coincidence and may not be what it is made out to be? It’s no secret that this chief wasn’t the most popular kid on the block here at the department, but it may be a good reason behind of his leaving more than we think? Maybe he doesn’t want to be around when and if the shit hits the fan? More important let’s remember one important factor that he come from the federal level so he knows firsthand when and if something is about to go down. We are being told that he’s getting out of Dodge and he doesn’t want to be around to get involved with anything that would blemish his resume while under his command. We think you know what we are talking about? Spelled out in three simple letters Fed. We usually don’t miss our mark that often and we think that we will be right on the money dead center on this one as well. We weren’t wrong about the DPW garage scandal were we? And the answer is yes, the answer to the question, is what’s going on at the DPW garage related to what’s going on here? Absolutely is all one big western omelet! And what’s pissing off most overshadowing this omelet is the fact that it’s so tight lipped that most of the alderman are in the dark about it. If you don’t believe us just ask the next alderman that you into and ask him about it and just watch the look on their face as they just shrug their shoulders. So stay tuned as we learn more of when and where and report it to you! Our prediction is that the week that the old chief leaves office, is the week that the new chief will be busy as a beaver. We hope this time that we are wrong, but we very seriously doubt it! So ladies and gents please fasten your seat belts, get your popcorn buttered and get ready to read it firsthand in The Somerville News Weekly!
