Another week, another set of challenges

Mar 23, 2010

 

It was another tough week. I was out of town Sunday (March 29) through late Tuesday (March 31) fishing in Northern Michigan for steelhead. I had a great trip and caught fish. I brought home four 8-10 pounders.

Eating was spread out and quick – ate a lot of chicken. The rest of the week my personal trainer Trevor was at a convention learning new and sinister ways to hurt/help me.

I worked out on my own twice, but it was not the same as having him there to push me. My weight loss for March was a paltry 4 pounds. I am down inches, but not as much as I had hoped.

We are going to increase the workouts to four to five times a week. Trevor is going to give me a list of things to do on my own, and I continue to be frustrated with my eating pattern and choices. I have been relying on  Diet Coke and need to get away from that and eat more often and less after 8 p.m.

I am also going to try to eat more in the morning, especially before workouts and after workouts, even if it is just a shake and fruit. I hope the pattern change in workouts will help and I can get back on track with a big loss in April.

Why the immature claim that she has a crush on Mr. Westerhold? What are you, in 3rd. grade?

Come on people, this girl appears to have talent and can write. Would you say the same thing if your daughter was writing for the Register?

are you carrying matt's baby

You guys need to stop being... JEALOUS.... and realize that some people have talent. And just because she's young doesn't mean she's not a good writer. Adults are nothing but big kids anyway and we need more writers (or bloggers) on SanduskyRegister.com that are teens. We're the ones who are the future.. not you.

Becky

Congrats on the opportunity on writing for the SR. I know what it feels like to be a teenager and have a responsibility like that on your hands...as well as the fear of judgment. Like your friend said, not everyone is going to like you. Not everyone is going to agree with you. We're all different people. Just keep doing what makes you happy and focus on those that love you and inspire you. There is always going to be criticism, no matter what you do. Good luck girl!

Teenagers will end up in handcuffs and no one said she didn't have talent. Its just we all know she is Matty's pet! Almost like a Sugar Daddy

Good Luck and ignore most of the comments that some of the people make on here. Oh, and you might want to change that picture if you want to be taken seriously. Just a suggestion

all of you people need to get off her back..all she is doing is showing some appreciation to a man who gave her a great opportunity, think if this was your daughter you would be proud not making silly aimless jokes at her....she not pregnant by him hes not her "sugar daddy" they are co-workers. stop being immature!!!! this is the one thing i cant stand in sandusky......the community stinks. the children more along the lines of teens my age are always looking for somebody to tear down at, i think that her blog was wonderful and i will continue reading! but i think if your going to be rude and say cruel things that dont even have any back bone to them...i dont think you should comment this blog at all!!!!! ill say this again to be clear IF YOUR NOT GOING TO BE NICE GET LOST!!!!!!!! again congratulations chelley you did an amazing job keep up the great work!! ^_^
and kudos to matt for being a good mentor to her....you go guys!!!!!

If you read the comments, which I wouldn't recommend anyone do, remember this:
Negative comments come from negative people who have no impact on the world(and most of them are jobless sitting at home in the middle of the day). Positive and constructive comments come from people who are interested in helping make you better.

So...ignore the idiots, and take advice from those aiming to help you. As a journalist, you will quickly understad that the free speach that allows you to do your job, also allows the dumbest of individuals to express their ignorance in a like manner.

Good Luck!

OMG

She's hot.

I thought the commissioners were too busy to meet at their regular meeting time on Monday because it was moved to Thursday, but they sure found time for a two hour executive meeting over this report. They also had an executive meeting AFTER the financial committee meeting. The financial committee puts on a show for the public and goes into executive meeting for the real stuff they don't want the public to know.

CM

they should make the people that filed this stupid investigation pay the bill, not the tax-payers. make them pay with their personal money, then maybe they will think about it the next time...

Maybe you could get them to pay for your windows while they are at it too..

on february 28, 2008 mgr. matt kline could have removed police chief kim nuesse from her position as he was entitled to. he balked, she lawyered up, and 222 meigs st. has been backstroking ever since. poor decision from the manager and bad legal advice from don icsman. crandall, murray,and stahl were manipulated and duped.

Anonymous

I think it is odd that no decision has been made on Nueese before the report is released to the public possibly today. The commission must want public input because they aren't commenting either per the story running in the other paper today. The story said there was no action taken on the report. Kline is still back pedaling and cannot make a decision.

NineMM

What ever the outcome of this, it won't be over by a long shot. All we're gonna get is more smoke and mirrors from this magic show of the Ice Man. I'm certainly not gonna hold my breath til noon. Since no decision has been made on her status, leaves one to speculate that this has been a witch hunt all along. If I'm wrong in my decision to support Nuesse, the crow sure will taste pretty bad.

I plan on reading the report and cross referance her responses to the accusers. I hope the names of the accusers are in the report.

Well said

I like the way most of the negative comments were deleted. Especially the one that said the profile picture was better suited for myspace.

Anonymous

If this report is in favor of Nuesse, I think the commission should think seriously of relieving Icsman and Kline of their duites. Also, a recall should immediately take place on Murray and Stahl. All of this is on the grounds of mismanagement of their jobs and wasting the taxpayers' monies. Someone has to be held accountable and it should be the people involved in the very first meeting at the fire station.

It isnt just High Noon for Kim Nuesse, it is also High Noon for you too Matt. Once this all comes out, you will owe ALOT of people and apology!!!!! First off your employer for bringing so much shame to a once very respected newspaper.

chief nuesse made some bad moves..politcally she got too close to mcclung... the dispatch debacle between sandusky & perkins became an albatros..nuesse & mcclung liked it, others didn't. erie county & sandusky joined forces at the 11th hour (murray & ferrel running for office in nov.) to save the dispatch merger. dwelle has no use for sandusky & mcclung so the merger with perkins was d.o.a. the games people play, and the politics that go one are not uncommon anywhere. this area is no exception.

I have to say, and I am SURE I will hear a lot of people who calling me names like so many of you "Nuesse Fans" seem to like to spew...But I am not so sure making this report public is a good idea before they make a decision on what to do with Kim. I have heard there will be specific names in it and I just kinda think there are some things that are better left unsaid. I think we as the public do have the right to know what is going on and what she is being accused of, but to list names for the public? I am as against this as I am for Matt Westerhold listing names and addresses of Concealed Carry Permit Holders. Again, this is only my opinion, but I can certainly understand how someone could disagree with me. I guess you can say I am having somewhat of a "Dan Kaman Syndrome" because I am on the fence with this whole thing right now, now having said ALL that, I will be reading this report!!!! Good Luck to all !!!

The world has not become any worse. It's just that we are more aware of what's going on because of technology. How long would it take the news of a disaster on the east coast to reach the west coast in 1850?
I see the world as a better place than it's ever been. If there is NOT less war or murder or sickness or starvation, certainly there is the POTENTIAL for less. That to me seems hopeful.

At some point Mr. Westerhold, an apology will be welcome. You have plastered your opinion all over the Sandusky Register for months, all in Chief Nuesse's defense. After reading the report are you still convinced of her innocence or will this nonsense finally stop being so biased? Will you continue to attack Mr. Kline and the commissioners for doing their job? At some point you must realize that you have looked incredibly foolish when it came to some of your rantings. I hope you see someday soon that you were used for what you could provide someone else...media coverage at no expense. Fortunately, it didn't work to their advantage. Too many people have their own mind and can form their own opinions. Thank heavens those opinions are now justified and confirmed with the release of the Murman Report.

This report doesn't warrant an apology from Matt Westerhold or anyone else who defended Nuesse. This thing is so far from over - and so far from being the slam dunk case that the anti-Nuesse folks seem to think it is.

and i'm sure you are one of those with all the inside info. well my friend, all the "real" inside info was exposed today. it is a slam dunk case both criminally and civally. i just hope if they persue the criminal part, they take her "subordinate" that cancelled the parking ticket down with her

Okay, lets get past the I told you so. Matt be a man and admit there is something to this investigation. Let's get a new chief and move the department forward. Please Matt, don't continue to defend this chief. It is clear that she has a problem telling the truth and taking responsibility for her actions.

Wow

Terrible story without question, came to the complete wrong conclusions maybe if the register wants to hire a kid to write online articles (which is a good idea) they should pick a smart studemt off the honor roll, somebody who is involed and at the top of their class rather than this girl who I won't even say what she is

Mr. Westerhold, it is time for you to resign. Since you became managing editor, the SR has gone to hell in a handbasket in so many ways. Now that the Murman report has came out, your already shaky credibility has gone to zero. It's about time the Register gets back to REPORTING the news instead of trying to INFLUENCE it.

Report says Nuesse has lost ability to lead cops
By RICHARD PAYERCHIN , Sandusky Bureau Chief

SANDUSKY -- Police Chief Kim Nuesse ''began well'' in her job but ''can no longer lead the Sandusky police department,'' said a report by an independent attorney assigned to investigate her job performance.
Sandusky City Manager Matt Kline yesterday made public the report compiled by attorney Michael Murman, a former Lakewood law director and prosecutor for Cuyahoga County.

Advertisement

The report included more than 500 pages of notes and summaries of at least 53 interviews with many of the top law enforcement officers and elected Sandusky and Erie County officials.

His conclusion: ''There is no doubt in the minds of the investigative team that Chief Nuesse can no longer lead the Sandusky police department.

''Whatever discipline is imposed, unless the city is prepared for the wholesale replacement of the command and support staff in the police department she should not be reinstated as chief of police,'' Murman wrote.

As of today, Nuesse remains the city's top police officer but is on paid administrative leave.

Kline declined to comment on the substance of the report.

''We'll proceed expeditiously and professionally,'' he said.

Sandusky's six city commissioners also declined to comment on the report. They received their copies of the documents yesterday and yesterday evening all said they did not have time to review it yet.

Nuesse's attorney dismissed the tome as ''biased.''

''This appears to be a very biased report based upon nothing more than innuendoes and gripes of some disgruntled employees and ex-employees,'' Bailey said.

''I find it interesting that a local psychologist reported having officers tell him they wouldn't take orders from a woman,'' Bailey said. ''Matt Kline needs Kim Nuesse gone to cover up his own misconduct.''

Murman's recommendation included three main issues with the chief.

''First and foremost, neither her subordinates nor the larger law enforcement community, except Chief McClung, believe they can rely on her to be truthful,'' Murman wrote, referring to Perkins Police Chief Tim McClung.

''Secondly, there is little doubt that chaos will ensue if her behavior is rewarded by reinstatement and it becomes precedent, the standard of acceptable behavior for her command staff and the rank and file,'' Murman wrote.

''Thirdly, she never earned the trust and respect of the police or the unsworn staff under her command,'' Murman wrote.

Many of Nuesse's supporters have seen her public persona but have not dealt with her inside the department, Murman wrote.

''Chief McClung is a special case,'' Murman wrote. ''He has nothing but praise for the chief and acknowledged that he would be pleased to be appointed captain of the Sandusky police department and serve under her command following his imminent retirement from Perkins Township.''

Nuesse was placed on leave March 10, shortly after a meeting in which Sandusky city commissioners stated the city no longer would look to combine its police dispatch operations with Perkins Township.

Murman's report includes information on the joint dispatch discussions, along with detailed information about the inner workings of the Sandusky police department.

Among the issues:

-- Capt. Gary Frankowski voided a parking ticket that officer James Ommert wrote for Nuesse's unmarked car when he found it parked about 4 feet from the curb in the 100 block of Columbus Avenue on Sept. 11, 2006.

In interviews, Nuesse and Frankowski said the ticket was not justified because there was no violation. However, the incident caused a ''scandal'' in the department, Murman wrote.

''The tampering with records to avoid the parking fine may seem minor, but to her subordinates it is emblematic of a double standard and disrespect for the law they are sworn to uphold,'' Murman wrote.

-- Sandusky police officers filed a labor grievance when Nuesse assigned two Sandusky officers to a narcotics unit under the command of Perkins police Sgt. Vince Donald.

The move ''caused a great deal of friction and problems within the Sandusky Police Department, as many employed by the department were astounded that an outside the department police officer was brought in to supervise the unit,'' said Sandusky police Sgt. John Orzech.

The officers withdrew the grievance when Orzech was appointed to lead that unit.

-- Nuesse worked to create a regional police special response team, or SRT, without consulting Sandusky SRT members, said Sgt. Ronald Snyder, who resigned as commander of the city police SRT.

Under a new SRT, it appeared most of the members would come from Perkins police, which had a larger training budget, Snyder said. He left that post ''due to the lack of communication between me and Chief Nuesse,'' Snyder said.

-- Nuesse three times missed meetings with vendors who came to demonstrate various computer and electrical systems, said Detective Donald Rumbutis. He handled the department's computer networks and stated he retired after 28 years because of Nuesse.

-- Nuesse worked to keep Lt. Mel Burns on the police department after Burns last summer was arrested for fighting with a bar bouncer on Put-in-Bay, said Lt. Phil Frost. Burns later was fired by Kline.

-- Nuesse did not allow reinstallation of laptop computers that were removed from police cruisers due to technical problems, Frost said. Although the technical company lowered its cost for the job, Nuesse did not allow the reinstallation because the company had been referred by the Erie County Sheriff's Office, Frost said.

-- Nuesse stopped going to Erie County Sheriff Terry Lyons' monthly police chiefs meetings and formed her own Firelands Chiefs of Police Association, which also had monthly meetings, said Assistant Chief Charlie Sams. Lyons attended the meetings held by Nuesse, he added.

-- Nuesse made no attempt to get $180,000 owed to the city police from seizures and forfeitures collected during investigations by the former Erie County Drug Task Force, said Erie County Prosecutor Kevin Baxter.

-- Nuesse first supported, then questioned, the need for a sales tax levy to pay for the drug task force and increased space at the Erie County Jail, Baxter said. When Nuesse questioned the issue before the November 2006 vote, the issue failed at the ballot box, he said.

-- Nuesse coordinated a mass arrest raid with the U.S. Marshall Service, but did not consult the sheriff's office, which constantly deals with overcrowding at the jail, Lyons said.

-- Nuesse told Murray, Stahl and Crandall that she had seen the sheriff's dispatch center in operation, when she had toured that center while it was under construction, said Crandall and Murray.

-- Nuesse had talked with her administrative assistant, Mary Ann Kuligowski, about possibly moving to a position in Kline's office so Human Resources Specialist Connie Nicholson could become Nuesse's secretary, Kuligowski said. However, Kuligowski later spoke with Kline, who had no instructions to eliminate Nicholson's position in the administrative services department and who had not spoken to city commissioners about moving Kuligowski to his office.

-- Psychologist Wayne Morse, who evaluated police officer candidates, told investigators ''he has clients who are involved in law enforcement who have told him that when Chief Nuesse was first hired, police officers on the Sandusky Police Department had indicated that they were not going to follow orders from a woman.''

The complete report is available by making a public records request through Kline's office at Sandusky City Hall, 222 Meigs St. Due to the number of pages at five cents a page, the cost for copies is $26.10.

I'm sorry, but did I miss your apology somewhere Mr. Westerhold? I am waiting to hear you say that you were wrong. When will you realize that you were manipulated? I hope it dawns on you one day that you have been a puppet for someone elses grand schemes. Perhaps it is time to call for your resignation?

Still waiting on your apology to all the service men and women also.

reader

How do you explain the rush to merge dispatch with Perkins ? The chief does not seem to have been honest with the city about the dire need. What were her
reasons for pushing that merger ? Why don't you ask her....and ask McClung also ?

You whine and complain about how unfair the investigation but fail to do any investigative reporting to find truth.

Oh yeah, good job on the obituaries, Matt.

Anonymous

I am suspicious that it took a couple of weeks for Kline to read the report, another attorney had to look over the work, and wondering if someone else altered the report because of the typos and misspellings. How could a report coming out of an attorney's office be so unprofessional as to the typos and misspellings? There were even lineouts instead of retyping it over; that report was a mess.

he's standing by his woman and his man. Not a single fact or argument refuting anything in the Murman report.

You have nothing to apologize for Matt. You are right, they got what they wanted. Lesson to the city, never ever try to hire from the outside, this investigation has set the city back 50 years. Promotion and hiring will all be from the inside because we can never trust those that come from the outside.

She wasn't perfect, but this investigation was a witch hunt, and the report is filled with emotional statements that have to make you question the motive.

This report is filled with fact based statements and comments made by her fellow officers. These are the people that SHOULD know the full deal since they worked with her on a daily basis. I wish I could say I was surprised at the amount of times McClungs name was mentioned in the report. That was her first mistake, getting mixed up with him. The only person that took this to an emotional level was Nuesse herself.

I agree with your writing. Fantastic job! I am a father of a beautiful 3 year old boy. He is my lifeline. I was very sick and almost died while my wife was pregnant with him. I decided that no matter what, I was going to see my son be born. No matter what. I made it obviously, and have been attached so much to him ever since. We are too much alike, which sometimes is a good thing. We have a great time when we are able to get together and find some trouble to get into. I feel so satisfied with knowing him so far in his short life, and knowing that I have a wonderful reason to live. Don't get me wrong, I love my wife and otehr kids too, but this one wrapped me around his tiny little fingers from the first day we met. I was the one crying at his birth, not him. Afraid that he might not really get to know his father. I became determined to find a way to get healthy and have been fairly successful at it. The innocence of the children really does change the way that you look at the world. As mean and cold as it can be, it is very warming to see that you have the opportunity to help make the next generation a better one.

I hope her husband never catches us, because he has been looking at us real mean since I keep defending her. I feel so sad mom, that this had to happen, I never get to see her gain in her little police outfit. I know mom, I do feel like a joke now that it's all out, but I just can't say I was wrong. Darn those guys for all being right about her, they spoiled everything. She already talking about moving away from here. Waaaaaa! MOMMIE HELP!!!

Congratulations to city commissioners Dennis Murray Jr. and Craig Stahl, and city manger Matt Kline and law director Don Icsman. You got your MAI report (made as instructed). The stink of this situation you have created will follow you the rest of your life. They wrote a book about Mansfield, OH a few years back. The title was "Rotten to the core." I think a new one should be written about Sandusky. We could call it "Rotten to the shore!"

After reading approx. 240 pages of this infantile report I can honestly say that all this hoopla is hearsay. He said, she said. I can also understand some of the things that Nuesse did. I don't trust the commissioners or this present city manager and the ranking police officers are just part of the good ol boys club which if allowed to stay will result in the same-o, same-o, in this peyton place of a department. It still looks like and sounds like the top officers were conspiring against a female police chief. We would be better served by canning everyone of these ranking dirtbags and putting Nuesse back in control with a complete new set of Captains and Lt's. The family tie-ins of the Lyons and Baxter and Icsman is worse then a mafia. To take sides and believe either side is like tossing a coin, so let's start over with new ranking officers and see where it leads us. There wasn't any criminal offense, as some of the bloggers seem to think took place, and neither side is innocent in this matter. If we have to hire a new chief then go outside and hire another female and let's see if these officers will co-operate with her, if not then if looks like it really is the fault of these same officers and not the chief.

Yes, it was a witch hunt. Guess what they caught? A witch. I'd call that a success.

List of ok things to do if you work for Sandusky Police: Say an officer that repeatedly raped a teenage girl in a police station is a good guy and should not go to jail--take free coffee and other items from local businesses--sit behind the powerhouse at Campbell School and talk on your cell phone--- Things that are bad, telling Kevin Baxter where to shove it--teaming up with Perkins Police--arresting people with warrants with out the express written permission of every county employee--Being a woman--Asking your fellow officers to not be stereotypical cops.

Westerhold can't even write six paragraphs by himself without a spelling error.

On another note, does anybody realize that the contents of this report was taken down by a stenographer and those types of typos can't be changed when it is copied over to a text document. Be happy you got to see exactly what was said in those interviews. If they changed even a word they would be accused of tampering with the report.

Westerhold, this report confirms your ignorance. If you think her actions are OK, then it's obvious you have no idea how to manage either.

You have made yourself part of the story, which violates one of the rules a journalist should follow. But hey, you're not much of a journalist, anyway. You are a joke and you've turned the Register into one as well. Nobody will ever trust another word that comes from your keyboard.

It really doesn't matter what Matt thinks, or the IMA, or any of us. We didn't hire her, the City did. If they think she doesn't represent the City in the best possible way, she's gone. Like any other employee anywhere.
If your bosses don't feel you're right for the job anymore, your gone. The City will do the right thing, she'll be gone.

No executive session for two meetings in a row. How much more time is going to pass before Kline makes a decision on Nuesse? How can the commission not discuss this report in executive session and render a personnel decision? How are the commissioners communicating these days?

Anonymous

Let me preface my remarks by stating I have no stake in the behavior of Nuesse, her supporters, or her detractors.

That aside, a good attorney can make anyone look bad. Here is my "Murman Investigation" of Jesus.

Jesus Christ was born to an extremely influential family. He has a spotty work history, dabbling in carpentry and fishing. There is no evidence He ever attended school, let alone college, although He seems to enjoy impressing people by spontaneously curing illnesses without a medical license. He maintains friendships with thieves and a known "lady of the night", and in recent centuries is known for appearing in churches wearing nothing but His underwear.

Jesus' conversation with Satan is well documented, and his personal hygiene is lacking to the point that a disciple once washed His feet. He refuses to shave or cut His hair. Jesus once lost his temper at a temple, overturning the tables of innocent moneylenders.

There is no evidence that Jesus ever filed a tax return, and although He was sent to alleviate the suffering of humanity, humanity still suffers. His own disciple turned Him in to the Roman authorities. We recommend that Jesus not be reinstated as the Saviour of Man. Since his birth, the world has seen nothing but chaos.

You are one f^^ked up dude, you make no sense with your comparison to Jesus. You should compare her to Satan, you will see the similarities.

Amen Matt! I am thrilled that I have spotted a chink in the armor downtown.
Everything in the whisper campaign is in the report, as planned and expected, except the criminal charges that were pending.

It appears that the city's procedure of destroying all agents of change is getting a little lax.

This is actually a great sign. With the last couple of destroy campaigns, there were no loose ends hanging around.

Eventually the staff at city hall will make even a bigger mistake, and we can start to rebuild.

Hoopla and hearsay? Really? Do you even know what hearsay is. Its usually a third party issue. I gave my statement, and I can assure you it wasn't hearsay. ti wasn't anything that I heard from someone else. It wasn't anything that somone put me up to. Those of us who stood up and brought things to light, dealt with it for far too long. It's true and I feel sorry for you that you can't see past the end of your nose.
For all of you out there who question my and my co-workers integrity in the matter, POUND SALT. I have given nearly 19 years of my life and soul to the SPD. But yet you monday night quarter backs can tell me I'm a liar and not feel bad about it. You have no relationship (work/personal) with Ms. Nuesse but yet you can find her at fault for nothing. Well thank you very much. I'll keep that in mind the next time you call 911 because your residence is being broken into, when you or a family memeber is being victimized, when you or one of your family members needs CPR or immediate first aid until SFD can arrive, or better yet one one of your children just wants to talk with a Police Officer. NO sorry I can't do that because I have pride and I am dedicated to my profession. So all of you Police haters out there remember this: I bleed red just like you but most of you won't put your live on the line to save or protect another.

As for as for Mr. Westerhold...........LOSER.....and I too am still waiting for an apology for bring up Ms. Nuesse on a day we were to be remembering our fallen soldiers. Again, LOSER

To these people on here that talk about our SPD, stand up for Nuesse when they don't know what they are talking about, act like a child, and say idiotic comments.

Just try your best to ignore, they are hardly worth our time. Let them and Matt Westerhold be miserable on their own.

I don't know if they got what they wanted or not, but it is shameful that we, the taxpayers of this town, have to give up $20,000 for this crap: (and it is...all rumor; he said, she said). What a bunch of nothing. Now watch, the city will end up getting sued because our leaders didn't try to work this out peacefully and made such a big deal out of it. If that happens, everyone involved in this should resign PDQ.

To ref: Nightstalker comment: Wait a minute, you say you are a police officer with 19 years on the force...and yet you would print what you did? How much integrity do you really have to make the comments you just made, even if angry? How much caring really comes from you because someone disagrees with you and you lose your temper? People, all people, have a right to their opinions and may state such. It makes ALL police officers look bad when someone like you takes off on a general rant and says the things you just did. Not everyone hates the cops...and why do you care about the ones who don't? You are SUPPOSED to be ABOVE THIS. REMEMBER? You are one of Sandusky's Finest, Try living like it.

BRAVO! what a perfect example of how words can be manipulated to tell a story, which is why some people hate lawyers.

to ref.slant at 8:17 pm
The writer wasn't slamming Jesus. Try to reread it with the insight that the story was about how someone can take a particular subject -Jesus- and twist it into something else using just words.

Lawyers take the facts and twist them to the point that juries believe that the guilty person is innocent? Understand? Think OJ.

MR. WESTERHOLD, we have never spoke, but I have left messages. I have an inkling that by now you wish the blogs opened by The Register had never been opened.

It was a dumb option in favor of "openess."

However, I do know (at the risk of more more uneducated opinions) that you are doing your job. Been there, done that!

IMO, chase all of this hype down. DEMAND an independent investigation in to this alleged "investigation. "EVEN IF THE REGISTER HAS TO PAY FOR IT."

Look, Matt, I know how this expense may cut into your annual bonus. But this is where pride, newsworthyness, take charge.

reader

Re: your online survey question

How about an option to pick " She doesn't seem to be police chief material and should be let go. " ???

The optional answers listed don't give an good choice to those of us who waited to read the report before getting our panties in a bind whining about the investigation, and, after reading the report, have concluded the chief wasn't performing her duties in the manner expected for a police chief in our fine city.

Hate is kinda a strong word and does not really describe how i feel about Westerhold. I dont respect him and to me I would much rather someone hate me than disrespect me,but it doesnt seem to phase him. Which makes him inhuman. I would love to see Westerhold go to the PD and request an interview with an officer rather than hide behind Kims skirt.....He is a coward and he is slime. I am SURE this will be deleted because whenever someone hits a little too close to home for Westerhold it dissapears....I think he has given up on being respected because he just cant seem to know when to jump off Kimmies bandwagon....as for Gary Frankowski, I hope one day his guts match his big fat belly and he tries to show his face at the PD. No one has to respect him anymore cause he is NOTHING. The best part of Frankowski use to be his wife,but even her character has to come into question now with supporting this man and his "keeper" kimmie.

Anonymous

Maybe I shouldnt have attacked Gary's wife, but since some of you seem to be attacking Helen Prosowske, obviously everyone is fair game. Anyone who suppports Kimmie now is dilusional and deserves any comment that is made about them...I WISH so much I was able to reveal who I am so that Gary would know who I am....but for obvous reasons I cant.....He knows me well and is said to be the ONLY reason I have a job, well according tohim that is...

Anonymous

Bravo............the only respect Gary had at the pd was from himself. His hitler tactics and I know everyting mind set made him the worse one there. If the truth be known, I remember hearing him spiouting off after hearing Doyle talk, that he didn't want to work for a female chief. The only reason he started cheesing up to her is because she placed him back into a comannd position. Wheich should have never been done. runner had him in the right position, hallway monitor. For those of you who know, you know what that means. Oh and GARY, why don't you share with everyone what "LIE" stands for. Most of you readers now it as being untruthful but Gary has a different meaning for it. Rates right up with there with your hitler arm band you brought to work back in '89. Remember?

What is going on with the people of Sandusky? What in the heck is wrong with that Matt Westerhold? I am in total amazement! People whined and cried to see the report, they get the report, but surely they could NOT have read it. Are they still defending Nuesse becasuse they only read the summary and not the report? Of course the summary is going to be so bias...SR wrote it. They will NOT give up...it is unbelievable! That I will never ever understand. It has made me hate the SR along with SO many others. I am hoping that the reason people here is because they just like to keep watching people fight. I can not imagine anyone, after reading all that she has done, still defending her. I would hate to think that those kind of people are living among me. If you haven't read the whole 224 pages PLEASE do! One last thing, what in the heck is that Sue Daugherty (sp) thinking? Seems to me that she is not a very good judge of character...she got Buffaloed too. Is there any place that we can get in touch with to do something with this town newspaper that loves to keep trouble going?

Excuse me but she is one of the commissioners bosses, or do you not know the rank and file of this city. She is also correct in the fact there is such a class for elected officials. It is supposed to help them to hit the ground running and not have to spend so much time learning the ropes. You need to do your homework before you blog and tell one of the commissioners bosses to sit down and shut up. Does only your opinion mean anything or do other people have the right to express theirs.

" Everyone seems to think this should go to the active FBI, to the Attorney General's Office or to the Bureau of Criminal Ivestigation & Identification. Well I think for you Nuesse supporters, you would not want that! Ms. Nuesse says it in her feature film but she too would regret having this done.

For one if an agency of this nature gets in volved, they wouldn't simply indicate a criminal offense, they would act on it. So lets say the FBI feels she did falsify documentation for a FEDERAL GRANT, I'm certain they would charge her. The same would go for the other too agencies.

Maybe, just maybe the city is trying to save Ms. Nuesse from being charged by handling this in the manner they are? Although, just because there has been no response from the commissioners, doesn't mean Ms. Nuesse's and GAF's actions don't get put on a Grand Jury hearing list. Gee what would you supporters do then. Holy cow i can't think of it.

Did it dawn on anyone that the city might be trying to allow Ms. Nuesse to make the right move and resign. Allowing herself to swollow some of her pride (like there is any) and move on. A gag order put in place and she can go where every she wants and further her "so called Law enforcement career" somewhere else?

All I know is this, she will not be able to effectively command, lead, direct, and work hand and hand with her people if she is retained as the chief.

To comment on Chief McClung claiming he would work for her as a captain, not even....first off if you wanted to be a civil servant, you would have done so when you started your career. One I doubt very much if you could pass and score well enough to make it to the entry level of the SPD. As well Captains at the SPD are union positions, therefore civil service rules apply............

For you SPD officers...........keep your chins high and hold your profession in your hearts. We don't get much praise but then again we didn't take the job for that. It's a pride, honor, and heart issue. A lot of which most of these bloggers don't have..... "

First off, I would like to comment on the way the Murman report was written. It sounds like it was written by a five year old, and I know two year olds who speak better than most of the report sounded! BUT, I can't help but wonder WHY this woman thinks she SHOULD and COULD maintain her position now reading what the people who work with her said she is like. Seems to me she was on some sort of power kick and made up her own rules to be changed on a whim and then wondering why people didn't understand what to do! I simply do NOT understand why she feels she didn't have to pay for a parking ticket, I could care less WHO she is, she is NOT exempt from the law! If she parked somewhere that warrented the issuance of a parking ticket then by God she should have to pay for it, just like you and I would have to. This woman just can't seem to get along with others and play nice. She needs to be fired!
