The Hooter's REceipt That Will Not Die- One Last time on the Hooter's Receipt that Somervell County Salon Dug Up

First we published the receipt (and others) that we found by going down to city offices and looking at the check register credit card receipts. As we said at the time (July 9th)

My question. Does everybody in the city get their lunch paid for? how many people regularly dine out at lunch at Hooters?  WHO okayed this? Note that it is in the Oakdale Park category. How is the money that is coming from the bonds that is paying for Oakdale kept separate from stuff like lunches? Or is it?

Then a couple of weeks later the Glen Rose Reporter put in some comments about our research. Then, on Sunday, the Star-Telegram had an article about it, referencing this website. (That was the kind of hilarious one where Councilwoman Mitchell said it was okay for the city workers to eat at Hooter's because it wasn't topless. Today, I see that the Glen Rose Reporter again talks about Hooters and our site.

I think this came up again because apparently at least one city worker was telling people that the newspaper got it wrong, that there were 3 people instead of two eating at Hooters, thus maybe trying to justify the almost 50 buck lunch. I was told that myself after the meeting for City Council on Monday. The problem was that I have the picture of the receipt that I took and it clearly shows TWO people. So, as I've said before, if someone wants to argue with the receipt Hooters printed, they need to cough up the detail on what exactly they ate and drank.

Here's a stunner, though. The Reporter asked Dwain Whitfield why they were eating out on the taxpayer's dime and Whitfield said ...

the meals were in essence *rewards* for saving the city so much money.

DOINk! Heh. Rewards, eh? Who decided that one? Whitfield? I gotta tell you, I've heard on at least TWO occasions in discussions about Oakdale Park that the some of the electric outlets aren't fixed yet, that there's tape around the ones that are broken to warn people. Billy Huckaby even talked about the dangers of electrocution. IF YOU ARE SAVING MONEY, THEN USE THE SAVED MONEY TO FIX THE DANG UTILITIES AT THE PARK INSTEAD OF EATING AT HOOTERS OR JALAPENO TREE OR CHILIS or wherever. Sheesh. Let me add to that-suppose I decided to open up my own RV park and have outlets-do you think the city would let me go into business while I was coming up to code specs? I'll bet not. I'll bet I would be told that I have to make sure it's all working and safe BEFORE operation. Same thing goes for other items at Oakdale. I've heard that you can see through the roof at the old skating rink-I thought the roof was supposed to be finished. Maybe take a bit of that ole *reward* money and apply it to fixing the dang roof.. or making sure that the kitchen equipment is to the same level that any other public eating place in town would have to have.

 

P.S. Just for reference, this site is Somervell County Salon, or scsalon.org (note the *c* in the name). I suppose one can find it by searching for "somervell" and  "salon" but we do like our full name used.
