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.

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

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.

Excuse me but you obviously do not keep up with politics, but the Attorney General is being investigated, why do you think at one of the commission meetings when it was mentioned that we need to have the ATG involved with the investigation of the investigation it was said "but not the Attorney General".

Think you need to read your Bible again. You have several inaccurate statements in you 'account'.

Jim, thats because all the negative comments have been deleted. Censorship at it's finest. I don't think it is derogatory for someone to say her profile photo is better suited for myspace or to say her writing is "fluff" We are entitled to our opinions - unless you are commenting at SR

Matt - How can we get rid of you? Even your picture grates on my nerves. Go try on some sunglasses and look all coy and post that one.

I say grow up a little, get some life experience and then share your blog. And I am in total agreement - change that silly picture.

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.

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.

Make the most of this wonderful experience. You first lesson will be to watch a man discard his objectivity and journalistic integrity to support a pariah rather than report the news. Ignore the pathetic adults who delight in anonymously picking on a brave child.

Stop wasting tax dollars. Fire her now.

Men and woman complained that she lied over and over again. Men and woman complained that she was a horrible supervisor. There is hard evidence that she lied repeatedly. What are you people defending?

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.

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...

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?

Wow

Im glad Matt stole this from her rant at thursday night's commission meeeting
And who doesn't Sue Daugherty thinks she is, who is she to tell the commissioners how to run the city (elected officials classes, wtf) if she has a problem run for city commission next time otherwise SIT DOWN and SHUT UP, Susie

Fire her already.

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.
