Knocking a big branch off a tree in Dyker Heights caused much more than a swarm of confused and angry bees to spread out and menace the epicenter of the 43rd Council District….
It was yet another instance that allowed Liam McCabe to strut the kind of stuff that makes it look like he’s not only gonna walk away with the GOP nomination for council in the 43rd Counc. Dist. come primary day, but also be in a position to take on all comers in November as the area’s new Republican “King of the Hill”
The Brooklyn Reporter tells this basic story clearly and succinctly, as follows: “A hive of bees and the tree that it called home fell victim Friday, June 23 to a construction truck working nearby, according to local residents who alerted this paper to the “chaos” unfolding on an otherwise quiet Dyker Heights street…. ‘I got a call about a few hours ago from [local resident] Anthony Ceretti saying that his son watched this garbage truck back into a 100-year-old tree [knocking off a large branch],’ local resident and City Council candidate Liam McCabe told this paper. ‘Then they proceeded to just leave it there.’… The truck, McCabe said, was a private carting vehicle, raising suspicions that 934 78thStreet, the property the construction crew was working on, might be another alleged illegal conversion, an issue that has long-plagued the Dyker Heights community….” (See “Dyker buzzing over damage to century-old tree in course of home construction work” by Meaghan McGoldrick, 6/23/17, Brooklyn Reporter [http://brooklynreporter.com/story/dyker-buzzing-felling-century-old-tree-course-home-construction-work/]).
THE BIGGER STORY IS HOW LIAM MC CABE’S AND OTHERS’ ANNOUNCEMENTS AND/OR COVERAGE OF THE ACCIDENT-SPAWNED "NATURAL EVENT " SWARMED ACROSS SOCIAL MEDIA IN JUST ONE DAY
Almost mimicking the Dyker Heights’ swarm of bees caused by the collision of the truck hauling industrial debris from a house in middle of Dyker, Liam’s words, photos and video shots buzzed all across various social media outlets. What they showed is Liam McCabe being completely on top of a very important local issue to many of the, dare we call them >>> VOTERS <<< in his prospective City Council District.
Don’t take my word for it, see some of it for yourself…..

Of course there is much more to this story, but I’m on a deadline this week-end; and this is a case of good enough for now being the enemy of much better, much later.
