FLASH A new and important Inspector Committee opinion is
There have been complaints
about Inspector Committee members seizing opportunity to teach
continuing education regarding the new standards. One IC member is
canvassing the state with a "for profit seminar" before the ink is dry
on the new SoP. WOW they saw their opportunity and pursued self
promotion and bucks. You have to know that the course was being
prepared even before the SoP were adopted. But wait . . . there is
always a way for them to soften the controversy. Just have a meeting
and approve the behavior. Well on December 15, 2008 the Inspector
Committee and TREC is doing just that. Agenda item number 2 discusses if a
Committee member can teach a core or continuing education course. You
already know the answer to that. Why by golly we cannot deprive the
States inspectors from the genius of these people . . . . . of
course it's OK to teach courses . . it protects the public. This one
is too easy to call. Members of the inspector committee become
opportunist and Chairman Eternal calls a meeting that likely will
approve their behavior. Let's wait and see what they do. I know where
I placed my bet.
The Commentary is coming,
the Commentary is coming.
A past inspector Committee wrote and
approved a Standard and planned to support it with a Commentary.
General Counsel argued that a Commentary was unenforceable because it
was not adopted as a rule. That argument was used to throw out the
work of that committee and to reinstall Foster as Chairman Eternal.
The Foster / Willcox Committee has passed a new Standard and is now
meeting to write a Commentary with the apparent approval of General
Counsel! It will be interesting to see how TREC spins this hypocrisy.

Cahill has left home inspection?
I heard from the rumor mill that I had
left the business. Not really. I am transitioning to insurance
adjusting, expert witness work and risk management services. I just
did a 7 week insurance adjusting gig in Houston. I intend to remain
available to help inspectors with the new SoP.
