The Case of the Missing Report, The report resurfaces!
This is starting to really get me wondering what in hell is going on. Guess what turned up on my fax machine last night at 11:12 PM? The missing/non-existant report, that is not supposed to be a report, but an "evaluation" and was supposed to probably be "a few PowerPoint slides"... well it isn't PowerPoint. It is a 4 page document with no NHMCCD or Gilbane logos on it so it will be difficult to prove where it came from, but there is something strange about the document. The cover letter has two fax machine headers on it from two different machines. The time stamps would indicate that they are some thirty one minutes apart, but only the cover page has two headers, pages two through 5 of the fax have only the later one. This would appear to imply that someone (Lampe?) faxed a cover page to someone else, who then faxed the cover letter along with the remaining pages of the report to me. There is a large amount of financial information here to support their claims. I will however be the first to say that I am unqualifed to analyse the information's validity or if there is something else that should be here that is not. I know there are people around here that are much better qualified to analyze it so I will leave that to you guys. I will say however that it could not have been developed without cooperation by someone at NHMCCD, and it was clearly written to justify a course of action by the board of trustees, so Laughter is clearly in violation of the law in claiming that no such report exists. I am currently in the process of pulling the caller ID report for that fax machine and hopefully by this afternoon I will know where the fax came from. It is entirely possible that it would NOT be financially viable to use the facility. I am unqualified to make that judgement, I CAN however say that the way in which this has been handled stinks to high heaven. If the NHMCCD Board will go to these lengths to obstruct the public's view of their stewardship of public funds, I have to seriously wonder what ELSE they have buried.
