How about commissioners who only walk from the parking lot to get to city hall completely ignoringRead Moret he Stardream Plaza (what I call it) which is a JOKE of a park with only one bench donated by the family of the founder of Nutrifoods and only two isolated benches on the path leading to the fountain. What is good for the goose is good for the gander. Kids and their parents sit on the walls and Don Johnson says YOU prefer that to any bench. I believe he thinks that we are no different than the inhabitants of the primate exhibit at the "Huntington Woods" not the RO Zoo. Is he right? As for our Mayor and commission just throw them enough bananas to feed their campaign chests and they will approve a bar, an abatement, or a brownfield application just for you. You heard the order. If you want a play area, and sand box next to your cage go out and clean it yourself! We got other things to do like helping Arts Beats and Eats so we can enjoy the perks we get from them. Remember, your parks are no longer a tax paid given, they are merely perks. So clean up your own perk we have AB&E, and a CBD with an "entertainment district" to maintain and keep safe with more downtown cops.. At least they all know how to show appreciation for us. When is the last time you took one of us out to lunch, eh?

Nicole, you seem to go above and beyond to be hard on Lauren who apparently is still being verbally Read Moreattacked by these bad neighbors? Just curious if you have a dog in this fight?

I agree Ron. Its weird how no matter what I say she keeps nagging. Odd that a woman would go out of Read Moreherway to deter anyone from clearing this sergeants name. Every single thing im saying now and will ever say in the future i can physically prove with evidence. Im not the type of person who says things unless i can hand someone something and say "look at this" or "read this". And every time something happens I will continue to gather evidence. For example....apparently no one that has any bad intentions on any level of this situations thinks they arent being audio or video recorded. Or Pictures cant be taken. Physical documents are public too. It requires almost no effort to get those. Anytime the department is going to change their mind and look at it all, ill have it all for them in less than 5 minutes ready to go. Nicole- you talk pretty similar to the obnoxious neighbors girlfriend and seem to know a lot about the neighbor. I doubt anyone knows though I happened to get a video off my security camera back when the snow storms hit of him hitting a neighbors truck. Twice. Then drove off. I told the neighbor whose truck was hit and we spoke to mike(the neighbor who hit the truck) the same day and mike admitted it, apologized to him, shook our hands and thanked us for being civilabout it. Thats why the shock is still lingering as to why this guy and his girlfriend even bothered to complain months later about something that wasnt even true. And he didnt get fired for a single thing they accused him of doing!!! They told me(both of them) on a video recording i have that they personally know the chief and they called him about the sergeant. They also said the only thing they have a problem with is him calling animal control when he noticed mike leaving his dog alone home for 3 days with no food and almost empty bowl of water. They didnt say it wasmt true. They said they didnt care what happens to the sergeant and are gonna make sure he gets firedfor putting his nose in their business. Then they called 911 and said to the police i had a weapon and was threatening to use it on them. The video clearly shows i was holding my dogs leash and the camera and you can hear mike doing this. The police told me right away when they show up they knew before they even got there that i didnt have a weapon. Now how did they know that??? And what does this sergeant have anything to do with this???? When i went to the department to complain about these 2 calling 911 making false statements knowing it was false and had the video with me to show, that officer i spoke to wasnt interested and told me i cant make a report and no one is going to do anything and he took my name out of everything. I dont know what that even means but whatever. I forgot to add...at the very end of the video you can see them walking away when they see the police,dragging their dog inside and yelling back to me theyre going to call the chief and tell him i threatened to shoot and tase them. What the hell!?!?! And not 1 cop wants to see any of this!!! I have no reason to make any of this up. I have nothing to gain by lying or telling the truth. These people still, even earlier today while i was outside witg my dog playing stick with her, drive by giving me the finger. Yelling and laughing. This is rediculous! I wanted them to leave me alone and this sergeant shouldnt have been fired. And i appreciate the support Ron is giving me on here. Besides my neighbor they terrorize that lives next door to them Ron is the only other person who supports me speaking out. I really appreciate it and reminds me that fighting for whats right by this sergeant and getting some peace isnt for nothing.

I just feel there are two sides to every story but I wish you well in your goal to make this sideRead Moreof the story heard.

Agreed. This is on the county as they maintain the lights on Eleven Mile.
Brett A. Hermance April 18, 2014 at 06:59 PM
a yellow blinking light means stop and proceed with caution. This can be a rolling stop. :-)
RON Ostrodamus April 18, 2014 at 10:14 PM
I disagree Brett, a yellow light means slow down and use caution nothing more. I am personallyRead Morethoro ughly disgusted with Don Johnson and our do as little as possible mayor who both apparently believe that walk lights both downtown and across eleven mile are timed long enough for seniors, handicapped and small children to navigate across when all the while cars are turning in front of them. These two characters for appearances support our LGBT (so do I), but obviously they both do not give a steaming crap about those of us who are not able to run the hundred in less than four minutes. This is apparently what is required of you while using any downtown RO walk light! OTHER more progressive cities thoughout the country have recognized this problem and corrected it to the relief of their growing senior and handicapped populations.

With all the molotov cocktails thrown into homes by homicidal maniacs this sounds like a good idea. Read MoreSo is the idea of a cop on every corner. Maybe someday if the price comes down, but for now the system costs more than the homes that need them the most can sell for. Insurance companies can help by giving substantial discounts. You cannot always legislate intelligence. HUD buildings by the way require sprinklers to my knowledge.
