The Federal department of Outdoorsy Stuff conducted its last "Sharing Session" this evening in the Rocky Flats Center for the Arts & Inhumanities. The public was invited on the premise of "sharing" feelings, information, and directions of the future of the Manna site Refuge.
Unfortunately, the event as a whole was blindsided by a government which had no interest in "sharing" or listening, rather stating opinion and directive and announcing at the end of the event they would not entertain actual public voice, but rather, post-its with written quips from the public.
Turmoil began following a long, slow, drawn out speech from Carl of the State Department of Public Smealth, and David Kissass from the Department of Outdoorsy Stuff. The temperature of the room rose after a female Jeff Sessions of the EPA spoke softly into the microphone to the crowded room, her only word audible was "we" and the room erupted into an uproar. Local residents of both natural hair color and blue hair who were all presumably retired as to have free time prior to Prime Time were then seen holding up neon protest signs displaying the words "disagree". Tensions built as armed guards from the Department stood by exits, and the speeches ended to a conclusion that in fact the officials would not be hearing any public input. It is presumed Kellyanne Conway's sister delivered the closing ceremony although we never gathered a name, with her words of the impending closure of the discussion, without public input, the room riled. Suddenly, an outsider with too much time on her time, stood up, drawing the attention of all media coverage. Roundhouse kicking the chair in front of her from her back row position (launching an unfortunate elderly man into his aisle) she boomed "You idiots, we have facts, we have science, and we have a voice!" Conway's sister rallied "Umm, that's why we aren't taking public input, so I conclude this meeting." The official conclusion of the meeting would not be the end of the meeting, with local media taking interviews with people who had a spare ten minutes and an opinion, and several members of the community threatening legal escalation of the issue.
We as a neighborhood association have been faced with the task of taking a side, and we deem it is in our best interest to not proceed with this Refuge project. You've all purchased on the premise of a refuge, but have never enjoyed such a benefit, and being such a hot topic, we believe it should remain that way. It is unlikely that opening it will present no negative press coverage, debate, or discussion, and to go on with our lives we think if we just continue as we have, it will better serve the community.
A surprise late Spring storm battered our community today. With official reports indicating the neighborhood received a beating by hail of 3.0" diameter, the Community Association was pleased to report that only 21 homes were hit by direct lightning strikes, and only 127 households lost windows, while 643 suffered visible roofing damage. "The fire department only had to respond to 36 households" said Mesha of the community center proudly." She continued "compared to last year, I think the neighborhood is really going to see an improvement in the wild weather conditions that afflict the area." Weather conditions along the front range continue to be an impromptu source of media coverage for the neighborhood, logged within the rotating atmospheric swirl known as the 'Denver Convection Zone'. Weather resumed being temperate hours later, and a blizzard with up to four feet of snow was predicted for the neighborhood one and a half weeks later.
