Another week, another set of challenges

Ken Gipe
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.

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.

Hi mom, yeah Matt hear again. I know, I know mom, you told me to watch out for little lying hussies, but she just made me feel sooo good, telling me what I wanted to hear, about how Big of a gossip columnist I am. But mom, I can't help myself, every time she cocked her head at me, laughed, and called me "Mataya" with her little raspy voice. Stop it mom, I know she lies a lot, but I just love her, and it gives me an outlet for all my pent up emotions from when that thing happened to me. You know when I was little and the guy did the.............. I just can't say it mom. Pleease leave me alone and don't call me again mom. It's over between us and I have to go be with her. 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.

Matt you just dont get it do you??? You were caught along with her,now give it up!!!! No one belives anything you say anymore and you are nothing more than a gossip columinst now. You are such ajerk, well you are more than that but I cant swear on here so jerk will have to do for now, youre pathetic.....

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.

Some may say that this young womans blogs do not have merit and may comment on them in a derogitory manor. I say to those people stop, read with your heart and recognize that the youth of Sandusky, the future leaders of our city, our nation voices can be heard through Michelle's words. If we listen and take note of their voices our future will be one that will amaze us.

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?

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.

Matt has no honor. He won't admit he was wrong no matter what. There is more to this than meets the eye!!!

THAT'S SAND-DOUCHE-SKY. WHAT DID YOU EXPECT? SCUM RUN THE CITY THAT'S INHABITED BY THE SAME.

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.

Time to cancel my subscription. I know several others are going to. After this very biased reporting and now refusing to admit he was wrong. I refuse to put more money in Matt's pocket. And I will be contacting the companies that advertise in this paper and on this web site.

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

Sounds to me like you are the "scum". Grow up!

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. Most of those tpye of people are just unhappy people and want to make others miserable. Remember, misery loves company. Most of the time they are just trying to get feathers in an uproar. 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.

Apparently like the report, you didn't read the blog......I said I couldn't be that way because I had too much pride and my profession......maybe before you get on here and start spreading the (&(^(&)), should read and read again.

Hey Matt.........Did you or didn't you tape phone conversations? Still want that investigated.
