Much better than the posting by Theodore Page who apparently had another agenda in mind. Has anyone Read Morenoticed the nice job done with Barton Park (which suffers from being adjacent to E-Magine where employees on break too often toss wrappers, butts, cups etc), bags and bags of leaves branches and trash all filled by senior volunteers from Barton Towers? ps whose going to police the sidewalks in front of the bars downtown?

Ron seriously? I would think you would understand that I am upset that the city is looking to sell Read Moreof the parks that I take my Grand kids to. I am not the enemy here. I want to show that these parks are important to me and I think that others would pitch in if they understood what was at stake.

Wow. That's abusive. You don't get that we are on the same side do you? I'm trying to make somehing Read Morepositive here and all I get is negative spew from you. Have a nice day and hope to see you in a park on Saturday.

Show up and help, or risk losing your neighborhood park is positive? Residents are sick and tiredRead Moreof being asked to take the brunt of an economic shortfall that exists only because the city thinks that offices and hotels, and a downtown occupation for six days is going to help. One more rhetorical question: Help who? I can just see professionals flocking to open offices downtown knowing fully there is a parking shortage and they will have to close for six days to allow for Arts Beats and Eats. I can see cars roaming the neighborhoods adjacent to the new project looking for parking on private streets because the DDA demanded more office space instead of an additional parking structure. Are you going to organize kids to help clean up the adjacent neighborhood lawns of beer bottles, cups and butts? Has the DDA helped with any plantings around the library, or repaired or added anything except one forlorn sculpture on Troy? Every year we have a popular flower show next to a park with not enough benches, or flowers to speak of. Why can't the city with the DDA put aside some funds for our local parks as we certainly have enough public spirited citizens such as yourself to install benches, art, flowering trees and plants all available at that show? If you did not bring up that Normandy crap I would not have said what I said. I encourage citizens to support their DPS and parks but not by using threats, or to take the words out of your own mouth "negative spew". In my opinion if you are not the solution you are just another Johnson, DDA and Ellison enabler. I do not discourage residents from showing up, on the contrary I hope they do and start to talk to each other on how this city can be re-directed to something more positive than a bar town.

To sum it up a city that expands bars and shrinks parks is doomed.

Ron, are you suggesting RO proper is falling down to the TWP level, or vice versa?

Pill, er Phill. I stated many times I need more information? And if you have not noticed I stated I Read Moream not that crazy about Feiger as he is just another legal cherry picker ( if you even know the meaning of that expression). When it comes to ethics I question 99.9 percent of practicing attorneys, especially those who use political office, or cater to those in political office. Hey Lauren! Did you say the sergeant actually got his job back? If so he owes a lot of that to you. Now what is going to happen to a neighbor who brandishes a pit bull like it was a gun everytime you bring bring your dog out for a walk? Minimally he should receive a ticket for creating a nuisance by not controlling his animal. NO ONE should have to tolerate this. I would hope you could find a pro-bono attorney to help you with this problem. And the city needs to review its policy of how aggressive breeds are managed especially after repeated complaints. I could see the city requiring minimally a six foot fence, or a one hundred thousand dollar insurance policy, again where there are repeated complaints. Unfortunately, we have a namby pamby mayor who steers clear of controversy. This is an issue where police advisement should be taken seriously as in too many cases an aggressive breed has repeatedly been proven as dangerous as a loaded gun. I am sure most police officers, fire, ems, and mail deliverers would agree.

Hi Ron. He got a call from "a friend"(yeah right. This guy is as shady as the rest ofRead Morethes e cops involved) at the department letting him know they set up a date in july for the arbitration hearing and reminded him that they will offer him a deal beforehand like they do to every cop they fire and advised him to get me to remove this whole article and all the comments because people at the department have been reading it and its making them look bad and they arent happy. The sergeant told him im not making anyone look bad. He said theyre making themselves look bad because theyve done everything I stated and he wasnt going to ask me to remove anything. He told him he isnt settling for anything because hes innocent and they broke laws and union rights violations and other things. Side note......they make their officers they fire go through this game for months, typically around a year. Some of These particular cops involved said that and I heard it from their mouths when they said it. They also said they know its not supposed to take that long but advised the sergeant not to say anything about any of this and to just "go with it". Thank you Ron for giving me some credit. He has said a few times hes grateful for me looking into all this and encouraging him to stand up for himself and not back down now thay he knows he was wronged so badly and lied to so much on purpose. Hes devastated these particular cops involved wronged him so badly and were his friends for so many years. Hes really happy and appreciative you are willing to listen and arent judgemental of him. Police officers dont get as much support as they should. He was shocked when he read your comments and other peoples comments on here that arent judging him , he had a huge smiile on his face which i havent seen since this all started. He does not expect anyone to side with him. It was nice for him to see citizens that dont know him are willing to listen to what i have to say and arent saying hes a bad cop and deserved all of this. I completely agree with your thoughts about the pitbull. This dog is dangerous. The owner should have recieved a ticket when animal control came to his home and saw everything the sergeant told animal control about the dog being left home for 3 days was true. The animal control officer told him hed be getting a ticket for animal neglect and not getting the dog licensed. That never happened. Another neighbor called animal control too and nothing was done. That guy was told by 2 police officers and animal control to go inside if he didnt like it.
