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.

FIRE HER YESTERDAY! Sick of her! She sure better not get a dime from anyone! She has done enough damage to our city!

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!

This young lady at 15 is already more talented than Matt Westerhold.

The police chief is winning the SR poll...that is remarkable since there are so many malcontents from the SPD blogging away. Return cheif Nuesse NOW!

I wonder what else she is going to write about next? "TEEN PREGNANCY" "DRUGS" "SUICIDE" What's next?

You people are IDOTS.
Why would you sit here and talk about a 15yr old girl who is brave enough to be in the register and talk about how she feels. Youe people should proud of her she has had the opportunity of a lifetime. If this was your child I highly doubt you would be commenting them saying "your picture is better for myspace" you are LAME! Leave her alone, you should be proud she is trying to make a difference in our community.

The only suggestion I would have for this young lady, would be to have a more professional picture taken for this blog. To be taken seriously means to put your best foot forward. Keep up the wonderful work.

Please let's encourage our young people and lift them up. Let her find her own voice in this experience she has been given. What is the deal with no one ever using their real name when posting comments here?

The male cops are just mad she came in & snagged up that position & Mayberry doesn't want no broad tellin' 'em what to do.

Chief Nuesse has my respect. She has performed her duties while the "me smarter than you club" has undercut her since her first day on the job. That club is every where you look. If you can't win enough allies you are out. I hope the settlement will support her the rest of her life.

How very well written! You have a gift. It's hard to believe a person of your age wrote such a thoughtful piece. Thank-you.

Being a "psycho- nut" constitutes class? This idiot chief makes her own agenda to fit her psychotic mind for that given day! She makes decisions based on hormones and then when the levels of those hormones shift, she changes them. Clearly, her decision making skills, along with her inability to be an affective leader, strongly suggests that she needs to be fired and look for a job at a small town police department.

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?
