    Detective Gregory: "Is there any other point to which you would wish to draw my attention?"
    Sherlock Holmes: "To the curious incident of the dog in the night-time."
    Detective Gregory: "The dog did nothing in the night-time."
    Sherlock Holmes: "That was the curious incident."

    From “Silver Blaze”, The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, Arthur Conan Doyle, 1892.

    I always liked this story because Doyle, like my father, was professionally trained as an eye surgeon, and he incorporated a cataract knife into the story plot in an unexpected way. What makes the story memorable to a wider audience is that it is silence - rather than noise - that ultimately reveals the malefactor in the tale. This lack of an alarm warning concerning a clear and present danger was Doyle’s kicker and it becomes the fulcrum upon which the mystery is solved.

    Thus today in Rye, as we await LausDeo10580’s latest update on the expanding troubling revelations about Rye Golf Club financial and managerial affairs, I think it’s important to recall that warnings about the possibility of something like this have been talked about for years. But despite that talk there is a natural default assumption on the part of most that Rye is operated lawfully and its government exists solely for the benefit of its citizenry. In this assumption, elected officials play the role of high level decision makers and fiscal watchdogs, their interests unquestionably and transparently aligned with every stakeholder resident taxpayer of the city. And those who might question this truism are dismissed as cranks, gadflies, self seeking low life’s - with no life’s – you can fill in several more descriptors.

    The problem this is, we’re not. And our elected watchdogs remain silent.

    Our own Rye edition of stories now regrettably include: The Mayor’s Illegal Abode, The Mayor’s STAR Tax Fraud, The Mayor’s Un-Assessed Two Family Rental House, The Ethics Board Whitewashers, The Dapolite Affair, The Non-Mystery of Schubert’s Vanishing Pond, The Curious Case of Amico’s Stop Sign – and others, along with Rye Golf, now emerging.

    In “Silver Blaze,” the evil doer dies from a reflexive racehorse kick to the head, inflicted as he sought to secretly hobble the animal with a knife in the nighttime. Perhaps the coming story of Rye Golf will provide a similar but non-fatal impetus to our long suffering swindled citizenry that immediate change at the top essential. Many, including me, believe that Mr. French and Mr. Jovanovich (his protector) need to resign as the first meaningful step.
