The Bain Administration

They have been watering down the codes since he was in office. His philosophy is that it is your property and you can do what you want. Unfortunately they controll 1500 votes and with the level of apathy around here as indicated by this last low voter turn out, they stay in office and get their slate in at the same time. There is nothing to stop a group of concerned citizens to march on City hall and return our code to the Glenn H. Curtiss Dream urban plan. The Bain administration is just slowly pushing the decent folks out knowing that the Venezuelans and Hialeah South residents do not mind living like Sardines.

The only two crazy inbreds at that location are Nery-O and her sex partner p ing as her sister as they hide in the bushes trying to peep in the windows. It appears she apparently buried her old ancient cat she owned on the other side of the lake on the Marquez property without them knowing about it.

But the Lord works in mysterious ways and old Nery-O is much older than her favorite fellow and we have on good authority that her days are fewer in numbers than his.

So is every homeowner allowed to rip their old house down and build a huge house with absolutely no front yard? It used to be you had to have a percentage of green space in front. What has changed ? Are there any rules on how big a house can be on any lot? We would live to build a two story on our lot which happens to be pretty big but when we asked the city we were told we had to abide by the codes.

Nery-O, Martin and Kathie are very much loved in this community and respected something you have never been. You are nuts. Certifiable. All anyone has to do is look up the public record of the meetings of the CMI where it is there for all to see. If it was not for Marquez the Mansion would have been torn down long ago. He responded to a City RFP only to have it changed do to politics shortly after Marquez and former Councilwoman Gannon got the first Historical Grant for the project. When it was obvious that Wheeler and Jo Ellen Morgan were trying to commandeer the project, Marquez resigned from the board he created. If you are too stupid to find out that Marquez is a registered architect with both NCARB and the State of Florida, that is your problem. You are so incompetent at findings the public records that it drives you nuts. But Marquez is too busy dealing with his countless clients and current workload that he has no time for you anyway. Nery-O spends her every waking hour trying to figure out a way to get rid the thorn in her side for years....Marquez.

ANNEXATION

People who think Annexation is a no brainier is because they have no brains. This would be a horrible way to buy a pig in a poke and increase the tax burden on the residents. It is in no way a win win. The commercial property owners in the area have stopped this in the past and they will do so again this time around. If you were in their shoes you would do the exact same thing to stop it. Doubling your taxes or in some cases triple them is just cause to stop annexation again.

Annexation Assumptions

The  umption that annexation would be great for the tax payers would be great is a false one. There are still numerous environmental issues in the proposed annexation area that could cost our residents dearly to clean up. In order to support those areas out there new police services would be required and who do you think is going to pay for that. The County has their terminal ordinance which allows them to control the zoning in that area so we would not only have a toothless Council but the County controlling our City-s destiny and future without the residents being able to do a damn thing about it. Annexation with all these strings attached would not be great for the residents. Only the few developer types want it to spur on redevelopment and destroy what is left of the Glenn H. Curtiss Dream of a low density single family community.

Since YOU obviously don-t know what you are talking about, I will enlighten YOU. All four cities have addressed everything necessary (NOT TRUE, MANY OUTSTANDING ISSUES LEFT UNRESOLVED).

It is totally up to them if they want to allow annexation (NOT TRUE, UP TO THE COURTS).

Everybody is for free money but this is not free money as it comes with a lot of strings attached. Many a Freedom Fighter supporters maintaining our small town flavor and size, single family low density lifestyle, friendly neighbors not stressed out by the Hustle and Bustle of having to live in Doral, Hialeah, or liberty City. We have seen crap at the bottom of our shoe that is worth more than the poster below. So what, it does not change the fact that there are way too many pitfalls in annexation and the property owners in that West Dade  ociation will fight it tooth and nail. This is a Momma Sosa pipe dream. We have not changed our opinion on it since it failed last time.

Annexation

Again taxation without representation. The annexed area is commercial and since they do live there they cannot vote Council members in or out. They are going to go from the County 3% to the Miami Springs 8% overnight and get nothing of any value in return. It is cheaper for the West Dade Property Owners group to fight this in court then to bend over and take it. It will be years in court and the County knows it. Our City Attorney Espino has tried to come up with some bogus sliding scale for the taxes but people as big as Dr. Pepper and John Deere know better and will fight this hard.

Just cause you pump enough sunshine into it does not mean it is going to happen. The same deep pockets group that stopped it last time will stop it again this time because it is taxation without representation. Land owners like Dr. Pepper, John Deere, and many other real big dogs (unlike our small clawed tin horn politicians know how to stop annexation. Momma Sosa can crow all she wants but even former City Attorney before he left said that was all wishful dreaming and nothing would come of it. Sure Pepe Diaz and Sosa would love for it to happen but the rest of the commissioners is not really on board. They got stopped by an army of silk suited attorneys which have grown in size to role over these clowns at the County. It was not any because of any phony recession that stopped them last time, as the Freedom Fighters were part of that stop the annexation effort. It was an organization that cost $5,000 per member just to join it. It was very effective and was just waiting for the signal to come back to life. Thank You Momma Sosa for providing that spark of life needed to start warming up the silk suits. We would rather have our Council all dressed up and no place to go then the reverse.

Comment

Once again Miami Springs is last on annexation. The other three cities have already addressed the minor changes needed to their codes. All this city has done is have a minor briefing by the lobbyist with no action by planning and zoning or the council. Shades of ten years ago when one council member and the city attorney stalled any annexation efforts and all four cities lost out. The county will not take appropriate action until all four cities agree on the process so again Miami Springs has stalled the procedure which will probably eliminate annexation altogether. The result is higher taxes for the residents with no relief from the huge commercial base in the annexation area.

G.I. Jane Mitchell

Is Maria Mitchell still speaking tonight on trying to grow our government by forcing all boards to have paid staff support whether they need it or not. Most of those needless board meetings are not even attended by the public or televised which make you wonder why have them at all. But Mitchell on orders has to grow the government if they are going to justify changing the roads, modifying our comprehensive plans, and jack up the FAR. Notice now How Nery-O tries to go back to the FAR issue when she claimed it was a dead issue. They have no choice but to go back to it because increases to the FAR is the pot at the end of the redevelopment rainbow for Nery-O and her Cavalier Optimist. So tonight the 30 year government employee will float the idea of spending our tax dollars needlessly on paid staff members for City Boards that do not even need to meet regularly. Let-s see if Billy  erts his frugal ways and brings Bob Best and Petralanda with him or Petralanda votes with the girls and fellow teachers.

NW 36th Street

That is developing just as Marquez envisioned in 2005 creating a nice tax base because there are no up front fees needed since the infrastructure is in place already. The zoning was actually changed to allow medical buildings which are much more secure than any other and would bring Doctors to live in our community who love to play golf and the small town flavor that makes us unique. The Council back then was smart enough to listen to reason and allow the maximum at the time to be included into the zoning category which was FAR 3.0 and 11 stories in height. Marquez recommended keeping the 60 East West easement but the Cavalier Optimist got involved and removed it allowing commercial construction right up to the residential neighborhoods. Of course all of this included Marquez-s recommendations are of public record for anyone that cares to look. But old Nery-O loves to yell fire in a crowded theater, that is her style. In the coming days and months we will all have to focus hard on the FDOT and MPO attempt to justify modifications to our comprehensive plan to allow all this m ive development Momma Sosa has planned for us. They figure annexation will pay for it put those folks in the annexation area contrary to Soso-s claims have just begun to fight and they have very deep pockets. So that should be fun to watch as they have been notified that Sosa is at it again with their time running out. Nery-O, please send us another bent truth so we can straighten it out for the residents. What-s the matter Mex Claw got your tongue......hahahahah

Nery-O in overdrive

Nery-O cannot even keep her word regarding using and making up lies about family members. She keeps regurgitating the same lies over and over again even after everyone has ignored them. Why argue with Stupid if you do not have to. All Nery-O wants to do is instigate trouble any which she can which is not going to happen. Now she once again stoops to her record low using family members to continue lying and instigating animosity against the Marquez family. Apparently Nery-O or her goon squad are the ones with nothing to live for is Marquez and the Springs Freedom Fighters stops redevelopment from coming to town. So anything goes apparently as they are running out of Marquez relatives to lie about. Pretty soon they will be looking of dead relatives and accusing them of something. But as long as the residents place all of this in perspective, they can simply ignore it. We are told it does not bother the Marquez family as they fight for home and country and could care less all the lies that Nery-O and her goon squad pushes on this site anyway. The elections are over and Marquez and Marquez got what they wanted out of it which was to push the Bain-Zapata-Mitchell slate to commit in writing to leave the golf course alone and not increase the FAR. It is great when a plan comes together. Hey, don-t forget to mention Cousin IT, he will get jealous.....hahahaahaha

Nery-O Truth Bender

Nobody is against raising the FAR on the perimeter along NW 36th Street of the City where it cannot harm the single family residential areas. As a matter of fact it was just raised a few years back and you did not hear a peep from anyone. That is where it belongs. But Nery-O the truth bender tries to take advantage of that to try and make Marquez the bad guy Hippocratic. Marquez and the Freedom Fighters fight to prevent Nery-O and her Cavalier Optimist from raising the FAR in the neighborhood and commercial business districts which would destroy the single family neighborhoods. If anything Nery-O now that the truth is straighten out is the Hippocratic in all of this but she has no scruples whatsoever so she bends any which way she wants. That area along NW 36th street already has the roads and infrastructure in place to handle the increase in FAR which is why they changed the zoning to allow it to be increased to 3.0. When originally created that district called for a 60 right of way running East to West the full length of the district and separating the residential areas to the north in the middle of the block. It was Nery-O and her Cavalier Optimist who came back and eliminated that 60 foot easement separating the commercial from residential district and allowed all kinds of variances for their cronies so they could build within 5- of the property line and variances for tons of parking and full stories in height. But then that is the kind of people that run our City nowadays who do not care about the residents and only care about themselves. Residents should be aware and concerned about the Eastward Ho Movement because that is the developers only option. Visit w w w . v o t e m a r q u e z . c o m and see what they have planned.

That Concludes This Day Of Broadcasting

It has become a tradition to have The Greatest Farce On Earth either rained out, smoked out, or simply canceled. This year Glenn H. Curtiss did the favors by raining down on their parade but on the good side they had so many left over Claws that they had to give them away, but had few takers. Thanks to the Freedom Fighters the residents got the word and decided not to partake of the Optimist "A S u c k e r is Born Every Day Sale". They saved themselves a world of hurt. Even the number of Mexicans was down this year since they got word they were serving Mex Claws and decided to pull their money and go to Joe-s take out service for Real Claws. Bet they were good. And with that we conclude the Freedom Fighting Network for the evening. Keep up the great humor on this site and the Good Work of the Freedom Fighters in the Springs. Remember that Humor is the best weapon to use on those that think themselves higher and mightier than all...Asta La Vista Baby!! Viva Glenn Cortez!!

We heard mention of something going on there from one of the crooked planning and zoning board members but could not get the particulars last year. Just go down to see the City Planner and ask of record. If anything exist they have to cough it up. We know from a while back that MIA had plans for that parcel but it was strange. We got invited to their close session meetings as they were pitching leasing the land to a bunch of us so we could develop at our cost and eventually turn it back over to them. We all kind of looked at each other and wondered if some of the stuff being smuggled into the airport ended up at their desk. We said thanks, but no thanks and left the meeting laughing.

The Neutered Bunch

You keep blaming all our independent Freedom Fighting Hard work on this fellow Marquez and you already said he is irrelevant. Nobody needs to think about screwing the City, they can watch it live on The City Web site when it is not censored by this City Council doing the bidding of the developers and a greedy few. If you only have Marquez-s number, you got nothing as usual. You can watch all you want but democracy and the Freedom Fighters simply keep fighting a good cause of preserving the Springs from your neutered bunch. Ours is not hard work, you clowns keeping handing out to the community on a Slivered Platter.

But if is paid for from the Mex Claws sales it will be a tiny wall. Is there any relationship between the tiny Mex Claws and Billys Hands? Ask Nery-O, she would know first hand.

Eastward Ho

Ever since growth management controls were removed by Rick Scott, it is damn the torpedos and full speed ahead with development. When they run out of drinking water we will all pay for that bald headed development lover governor of ours. Of course he will have made enough money from his term in office to buy half of North Central Florida. We will  ing wind down here in South Florida. Is Garcia going to lobby for the new Eastern Airlines Mall of the Mexicans? The bottom line is were is all this traffic going to go? Sounds like we are going to need to make our roads more efficient, larger, and smack through the middle of the Springs which is going to be the bottom line of the FDOT and MPO study. All the promises that Bain, Mitchell and Zapata made will go out the door and that is when residents are going to wake up to the fact that Mini-Me Mayor Bain and his two flunky females on Council were really wolves in sheep-s clothing after all. Time is coming real soon.

Rain

That Phlegm you put on the Mex Claws is the same special saw your Russian fellow uses on his Horse Meat Prime Rump. We heard he does no much Nery-O and that is the only way he can express his true feelings about her. That is why Marquez always eats out of town to avoid that special sauce they use around here. Marquez does not waste his valuable time attending those Hialeah Riff Raff gang banger shindigs. After was the Festival go down hill from what it use to be, it would be like watching the titanic go down. Not a pretty sight. Next year we heard they are going to import the Claws from China via Russian just like his tainted milk law suit. They will still be small claws but no pokey dotes. They will be bright red and glow in the dark.We will still be hob nobbing with the celebrities in Miami at Joe-s Stone Crab were colossal Claws mean something and the side dishes are unique. Who wants to take a selfie with the tin horn City Council, when you can take your selfies with real international stars at Joe-s.

Mexican Claws

Anybody that can post with a straight face that Mexican Claws are better than Grade A Florida Crab Claws obviously does not get out of the Springs too often and does not have a clue. But she has to cover up for her Cavalier Optimist no matter what. Keep eating that Russian Horse Meat Prime Rump, I mean Rib as it taste so much like the real thing. The good thing about The Marquez home is that is never floods since it has indoor gutter and drainage system to allow the roof leaks to leak right back out leaving the inside bone dry from what we are told. Somebody said they saw a entire dumpster full of those little, iddy, biddy, Mex Claws being hauled away to Nery-O-s house to save face. She will have every cat in town coming over tonight to her house after dark, Probably even Santa Claws...hahahahaha

They were delightful. No signs of an upset stomach here. Too bad Marquez missed out. These Claws were better than Joe-s and the company better! No Mexican-s either, Marquez must have been mistaken.

Mega Mall

What has that Mega Mall got to do with Miami Springs? We need to be focused on the Mall proposed for the Eastern Airlines Parking Lots in East Miami Springs! This is County owned Property and Miami Springs will not collect any Property Taxes for this development but will have to provide Police Protection$$$$. Just like AirBus Deal$$$$. The vote will be 5-0 in favor of Garcia!

Rain

The only good thing about the rain today is that Marquez-s house got flooded considering all the holes he has in his roof and the windows falling off all places where water comes in. Just thinking of that makes me smile. By the way Marquez- the claws were delicious. Too bad you missed out. Although I couldn-t promise that someone wasn-t going to spit up a phlegm ball right on top of the plate you would-ve gotten. Maybe next year. #nobodylikesyoufool

Mexican Claws

This year the numbers were low. They didn-t sell as much Claws as anticipated. Today they are giving them away. Nery-O has her chance to get as much as posisible. It-s her only chance to pretend she-s at Joe-s. Get your Claws before they go!! Last chance!

FESTIVAL

Great festival so far!! Said the little Mexican guy sitting under the circle stage, eating his third bucket of Mexican Claws and thinking....There is no place like Home!! But he has yet to turn the corner and have to pay $1.00 to kiss the frog and try to turn her into a Human. He might just loose all the crabs he put down already.

Storm City Hall

The profits use to go to youth programs. It use to be a respectable local community festival celebrating our wonderful 100 year old community. Now it is simply The Greatest Farce On Earth making a mockery of everything our community stands for. You can thank Billy Bain, who is Tom Curtis poker partner as they take advantage of our City. Kind of makes you wonder how Billy and Tom split the profits away from the public spotlight, after all it is an all cash business. Why Billy even orchestrated the selling and consumption of booze on the circle. Like if we did not already have enough alcoholics in town that we needed more of them on the circle. Everyone should storm City Hall and demand our community festival back from these two carpet baggers.

Double Dipping Curtis

His cronies on Council basically subsidize the The Greatest Farce On Earth to make sure he makes a profit. Then he doctors the books and gets to double dip from the other end while asking whatever he wants from the vendors. He has the old goon squad on the golf carts running around like if they know what they are doing. They will do anything for a free golf cart ride and TC knows it. He gives them free booze and arranges free Mex Claws to shut them up and he keeps the profits from not having to put them on salary. He has a pretty good gig going over there fleecing the town while encouraging more Hialeah Riff Raff to come over in anticipation of the increase in FAR and acres of low income housing to come.

Mexican Claws

The Mexican-s attending the Greatest Farce On Earth this weekend that got p i s s e d on by Glenn once more, are use to drinking the water in Old Mexico and eating the claws. They have a place down there similar to ours on South Beach Called Jose-s Mexican Stone Crab Claws. It is not as big or famous but it is all you can eat until your bottom gives out. It is our local residents that are not use to those Optimist Rock Gut claws that have a problem with them but hopefully there were warned in time especially with the Optimist confessions that this years batch was worse than last years claws. Those immigrants from Hialeah just feel lucky to be eating at all and are use to dining out of a can. The real question that should be asked is how well Nery-O serviced all those Mexicans at her kiss the frog booth. She can probably buy a new mustang with the cash profits she made this weekend, or upgrade her living quarters to a respectable location on Hunting Lodge Drive....NOT. We heard she is trying to run the Marquez family out of town to try and buy their property and finally have a respectable address in town. But the Marquez homestead is not for sale. They have way too much fun poking Nery-O and the Cavalier Optimist in Southern End to ever want to sell their homestead. Sorry Nery-O, no sale. She is probably praying that it rains so hard tonight that it will run off those wetbacks and she can quit trying to play nice. She has to work real hard at that....hahahahaha

Its a shame that absolutely none of the festival profits go to local activities such as youth sports like they used to. How things have changed. Now it is strictly a business with money for one individual.

What-s a little rain, thunder, lightning, and wind storm among friends. But since this festival has turned into a for profit venture by Tom Curtis, shouldn-t it be put out to bid to all other circus clowns. Not just one of these insider rigged bids but one with sealed bids opened publically and to all charities to be the headliner for the Greatest Farce On Earth used to invite Hialeah into Miami Springs for the profit of a few and to spur on Redevelopment?

Mexican Claws

We do not doubt your word Freedom Fighter. Joe-s Stone Crab Claws are for the sophisticated taste and intellect and the Cavalier Optimist just do fit that bill. They are more into the Russian Horse Meat Pie crowd and they all talk like Deputy Dog Bain. You are right, they would not even know how to dress or act at Joe-s. Nery-O-s booth should right next to the Mexican Claws booth so that they can simply get them blind drunk and then do the two step over to the frog booth.

Wrong the Cavalier Optimist won-t be going to Joe-s. They are meat and potatoe people. During the festival they get so drunk they refuse to leave Miami Springs. Then again we know they seldom travel much outside of Miami Springs. So yes you won-t find them at Joe-s ... Believe me! Signed Freedom Fighter

Last years claws s u c k e d and gave everybody the runs. So this years batch of Mexican Claws is not as good as last years, WOW what a confession. What happened to Trump-s wall that was suppose keep them Mexican critters from ending up in the Springs. You are going to need more than great mustard sauce or spicy mayo to cover up the stench of those critters from South of the Border. Or, you can skip Montezuma Revenge you will get from eating them in the Springs, and simply go to Joes Stone Crab and eat real stone crab claws. That is were all the Optimist are going after finding  ers to buy their lame Mexican Crab Claws.

Beautiful Miami Springs is a quiet residential community located in the heart of Miami-Dade County, Florida. Literally, just minutes away from anything in Miami, it's a slow paced oasis within the larger hustle and bustle of greater Miami.

Miami Springs was founded in 1926 by Glenn Curtiss, also known as the "Father of Naval Aviation." Miami Springs is a middle to upper middle class neighborhood with a mix of blue collar and white collar workers. At the core of Miami Springs is a championship style 18 hole golf course that has hosted hundreds of tournaments and celebrities alike.

Miami Springs has a mix of homes ranging from modest to luxury. Most of the larger, luxury style homes can be found along the beautiful golf course.

Miami Springs has a row of hotels along NW 36 Street, adjacent to Miami International Airport. The proximity to the airport and the 10 - 15 minute distance to the Port of Miami Cruise Ships and South Beach makes Miami Springs a popular hotel destination for tourists from all across the globe.

MiamiSprings.com was created in 1997 by local businessman and Miami Springs resident, Nestor Suarez. Nestor loved the city he grew up in and created the first website dedicated to the Miami Springs and Virginia Gardens area. To this day, Mr. Suarez still operates the website providing local news, events, updates, and photos. The website also has a popular (and sometimes controversial) political forum where anyone can discuss current local issues, politics, ideas. Forum posts and Individual comments posted on MiamiSprings.com do not necessarily represent the opinion of MiamiSprings.com, its owner, or its advertisers.
