Not a good month

Ken Gipe
Mar 23, 2010

 

This has proven to be my most difficult month. I have only lost a couple of pounds. We haven’t done an inch measurement because Trevor Tieche, my personal trainer, has been out of town and I have had to work out on my own.

The workouts have been fine, except that I miss doing some of the work between sets. I tried to make adjustment so I could do them on my own, but I don’t think they were as effective. I think I put more stress on my knees, as they have been sore.

Eating continues to be a problem. With the hours of work, my own tendency to procrastinate and not getting things done at home, I have not planned well and have not lost weight. I am very frustrated with myself, and the support system I have developed, for not being able to make progress as far as the weight is concerned.

I am working hard on the exercise, but I am convinced, now more than ever, that frequency of eating and not feeling like I was hungry were instrumental in helping me get off to the start I did.

I feel like I have lost inches, so I will have to be satisfied with that for the month. I will have an accurate inch and weight report next week. I am off to fly fish for steelhead in northern Michigan for a couple of days and look forward to being outdoors and relaxing with nature. I will have a fishing report next week.

That's a good thing! Feel proud. At least that's a step in the right direction isn't it?

It's said that it takes 21-30 days in order to form a new habit.

You've been practicing unhealthy habits for a long time, it'll take some time to form new ones.

Be patient with yourself and cut yourself A LOT of emotional slack but stick to the program. It'll begin to pay off in div'ds real soon.

Proper diet and daily excercise are just habits - nothing more. They are in no way connected with one's lack of self control or morality.

Work to form the habits and the rest of it like losing weight and inches will eventually fall into place.

Stall must GO !!

Unbelievable

This one is beyond words. I can't believe what I have just read. Matt Westerhold, I have said that you were obssessed with this woman. I have to say I have changed my mind. You, my friend, are a ruthless nut. There is not one bone in that body that has an ounce of morals. You made me upset with a story you had written in Sunday's paper, but you know, after reading this one I almost have some sort of pity for you. You should really think about getting some kind of professional help. I am not trying to be rude but you have a major problem when it comes to this story. Well, atleast I can say that you didn't even make me mad this time, you are truly hopeless. I hope GOD can still find it in himself to help you help yourself. Are you that miserable? And your brother, Grant was such a nice guy!

Matt, you really ought to focus on the obituaries and police blog, where your minimal reporting skills are adequate.

Great reporting,Matt.Keep-up the excellent work.

To Matt: I may not agree with you often, but I certainly respect that you have the courage of your conviction. An old, now departed friend of mine, Emmanual Irby, always talked of people who would throw stones and then hide their hands--that certainly cannot be said of you. It is better to get it out in the open rather than let everything fester. You hang in there...

IMO

It seems to me that it is just not right for the managing editor of a newspaper to be so blatantly biased regarding a story, no matter if he is right in his thinking or not. I don't yet know what to think about this whole Nuesse situation, but I really don't think I want the editor of my hometown paper to try and influence how myself and other readers should react. The voters of Sandusky elected Craig Stahl and they can just as easily vote him out of office next time he runs if they are not happy with his performance, just as they can do with any elected official. I feel Mr. Westerhold and the Register should simply focus on accurately reporting what is going on with both sides of this issue and quit taking sides. Mr. Westerhold is overstepping his bounds with this personal aganda of his.

IMO

Sorry, I should have spelled AGENDA correctly at the end of my previous post.

Great job Matt. This of course will be torn apart by the anti Nuesse clan as being biased and lord knows they know bias as they are about as biased as any human beings can get, sorry I didn't mean to insult human beings. They have blinders on and do not have open minds, they only see what they want to see. It is to bad people are so blind to the truth when it smacks them in the face. Keep up the good work and I as always look forward to your stories. They would not know a reporter if they were talking to one.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Finally someone has seen the light! Thats what I have tried to tell people in the past. Westerhold is on her side and thats the story. The SR NEVER prints anything true. They are being just that...biased. That is why the citizens of Sandusky have no idea, all they see are all of his lies.

Anonymous

You seem to be a intelligent enough person but that is what gets me. I have argued with you a couple of different times, you just gave me alittle helping hand in another story. That is why I can't understand why you stand up for Nuesse. Too bad I don't know who you are, maybe that would explain something...I don't know. Why you can not see through Matt Westerhold is beyond me. Can't you see that is all he ever write's is stories about Kim and is always one sided? Doesn't that tell you anything. I have thought many times maybe you are Westerhold himself. Cpt Gutz seems to have disappeared after I asked if he was. Oh well, I guess I will just never understand.

Mr. Feel Good strikes again! You can't possibly believe all you say. Residents can see right through the phony show. Maybe your neighbors at Cedar Point will hire you.

Mr. Stahl pointed out the obvious. Once again Mr. Westerhold bent the truth to make Nuesse's cause look better. He must have learned this smoke and mirror stuff from her. She has told 4 different stories so far: 1 story in the Murman report 2. A different story in her video 3. A third different story in her radio interview 4. And now the fourth different story in her 13 page rebuttal. Get one story and stick to it...please

Anonymous

When will the IMA call in the cards and strike the recall deal.

remember

Remember Stahl made the speach at the debate when running for the commission seat that he was going to turn on the coffee maker and get to business and work as much as he has to to fix the city. Now he is just a lap dog for whoever can get him the most. He has not done a thing other than dupe the residents. What a worthless pathetic man.

I wouldn't hold my breath! Sounded like a good scare tactic to get Mr. Darden in the seat! Funny though. Mr. Darden wanted to be a commissioner but when he served before, all he could was fall asleep at the meetings. Now there's a city leader!!!

As far as the IMA........Nice to see what I predicted........Not one of them are qualified to do an investigation. I like the small print on their last page where it indicates that the informatoin might not be accurate........NICE.

As far as Stahl.......Thank you for standing up for your beliefs at the commission meeting. It's nice to see that at least you, Ms. Farrar, and Mr. Fuqua want to see the right thing done. Mr. Stahl, maybe when this is all said and done, some of these bloggers and Mr. Westerhold (JOKE)will owe you an apology........

Mr. Kline has been put in a difficult place because of the unethical behavior of a lying person. Mr. Kline attempted to discuss problems with Chief Nuesse, however to her detriment she ran to the SR and started a "witch hunt" campaign. She is a very nice person, she is a very bad leader.

The SR is spreading so much BS, not facts. Look at Dr. Morse's letter to SPD yesterday. He said that the SR took his works out of context and he has no personal knowledge of anyone at SPD claiming they couldn't or wouldn't work for a woman. We know for a fact that Gary Frankowski made these comments.

The SR says Baxter "blasts Murman report". Kevin Baxter wrote a letter to show that Westerhold is way too deep into this to see clearly.

Eleven supervisors signed a letter directed to the City Manager and Commissioner's and their thoughts of Chief Nuesse, not just the command staff as claimed by the SR.

The IMA, under the leadership of Matt Westerhold and Gary Frankowski write a long report that includes allegations against two highly respected retired FBI agents, which is a total lie concerning their integrity. I hope the IMA and Thom Darden have their checkbooks ready, the lawsuits coming.

And on, and on, the spin, the lies the deflection of the Nuesse supporters. I hope the general public is beginning to get the clear picture of this Nuesse fiasco, leading right to the corner of W. Market St. and Jackson St.

I can't wait to see Matt Westerhold under oath, on the stand be able to deny he wasn't at Nuesse's house, listening on speaker phone to the commissioner's conversations with the Chief.

Maybe it is time to contact Doug Phares, Publisher of the Sandusky Register. This all needs to stop...a journalist should be unbiased in his reporting...and yours can be downright rude at times. On this site it lists Doug Phares contact info as: 419-609-5860 ~ dougphares@sanduskyregister.com

Stagnant? You are truly pathetic.
Hey dust bunny, it's been stagnant since they elected you and that big Conehead. Stagnant six weeks? Where have you been for the last four years? You need to start wearing a dust mask. Maybe it is the drugs you stole before they let you go from Stein. Do everything fuzzy, canoe launch, green, how many CEO's did you bring in you MORON? We need jobs! Playing patty cake with the environmentalist and now one of your heros from the Southern Baptist Church who wants a "Dry" Sandusky. That will be great for the entertainment district. We can just sit around and get fat like all of his followers on TV last night. I thought I was watching a revival, I almost changed the channel until one of his nice size followers got up, Where did you get that boufont? Maybe we could all get Pizza or Ice Cream jobs and sneak food on the side. What do you pay per hour Conehead. Smoochy, I did not think you had it in you, I knew Julie had some guts, but you made me proud. Standing in front of pressure like a nineteen year old Marine, that takes guts. Murry you showed your weakness, no guts, no guts in these times are pathetic. How are we going to make it four more years? Fire Kim, hitch the wagon behind Julie (the only woman with guts and integrity), and get to work.

The managing editor now resorts to name calling? Westerhold has reached a juvenile level.

Let me start by saying I don't care if Chief Nuesse is reinstated or not. What I do have a problem with is the lack of ethics and professionalism displayed in reporting this story by the Sandusky Register. It gives all journalists a bad name.

Westerhold has controlled this story from the moment he sat down in Nuesse's home when it all started (admitted to by Nuesse in the Murman report). He has written and published stories under the FROM STAFF REPORTS byline, as documented by Baxter's letter to the commission in which Baxter questioned why Westerhold was doing the interviewing, when this is a reporter’s job. This letter, for some reason, was never made available by the Register. Interesting, considering how every other document was. Why was this letter not put on the Register Web site? Is it because it calls into question Matt's credibility? Why is Matt interviewing and writing stories? Is it too difficult and deflating for the reporters when Matt changes their stories after they've been written? Even today's story appeared to use only quotes that would make the commissioners who voted against Nuesse look bad. It's also a shame that young journalists are being taught this by Westerhold. I hope they're smart enough to know it's wrong and learn from it.

Even if I were a Nuesse supporter, I would have to object to how Westerhold has manipulated this story. Eventually, Westerhold may be on the other side of an issue I'm concerned about and I'd rather have an unbiased report of events than his constant shaping of the news, and even making himself part of the story. He actually admits to calling the commissioner a name then brags about it in this blog! What's the matter, Matt, were you embarrassed that someone called you out in the meeting? I would love to have seen your face when Stahl read that letter. Maybe you should have challenged him to meet you in the parking lot after school. That may have been more mature than calling him names.

I'm still bewildered that Doug Phares allows this type of journalism to take place. How much more evidence does he need to remove Matt from his position? He's proven too immature to hold a position of power. One can only assume Phares approves of Matt's work, which would make him no better than Westerhold.

When this story is done, I can assure you I will never look at this Web site or the print product again until a managing editor with some integrity is put into Matt's position. Even an ounce of it would be an improvement. A previous post called for people to contact Phares. Please do so. Encourage him to take account of what is going on in his newsroom and to talk to the staff under Westerhold. I think he may be surprised what he hears if he would just listen.

I'm beginning to think that Mr. Westerhold is so infatuated with Kimmie, that it has seriously affected his ability to think rationally. Don't be upset Matt, she batted the eye lashes at Mr. McClung too and may his heart sore.....but rumor has it that she and him met befroe she moved her, so he gets first dibs. Believe she might have even smile just right for Big Gary (oooooo sick). Face it, you're in the right company.........scum.

Your ability to write the truth is faulty. It's no wonder Kimmie flocked to you three, liars breed liars.

I just wonder how you sleep at night knowing that there isn't much you will write from this point that people will either enjoy or believe.

Sure it may sell papers and promote these blogs but you're about due for a real GUT check. Kimmie's going to pass you off like yesterdays laundry. Your heart will be broken and then yu will want forgiveness from the general public. Sorry you're on your own.

Bottom line, you're nothing more than a Stalker covered by the first amendment.

That was so on the money! Very well done. After reading that, maybe you should apply for Mr. Westrerhold's job. It's very apparent you have more forethought in a few paragraphs than Mr. Westerhold has had since the onset of this rediculous media support for Ms. Nuesse. Again well done.

For Mr. Westerhold...........Kind of "IN YOUR FACE". don't ya thik????

Doug Phares already knows that Westerhold is a problem and lacks ethics. Remember at the IMA event at the State Theater when he said it would be unethical to do what he was accused of. Well, he's right it was unethical and he sits behind the barrels of ink that inflame the community. Doug Phares will not do anything because tabloid journalism sells papers

Bravo! Well said. Matt Westerhold's unprofessional behavior is highly unethical and it's about time Doug Phares does something about it! I am neither for nor against Kim Nuesse at this point. I would really just appreciate some unbiased reporting regarding both sides of this story.

first of all, i highly doubt that Tom Darden wrote the IMA letter, but if he did shame on him. the part about the inmates running the asylum on page 23 is a disrespectful cut at every law enforcement officer, especially those at SPD. and by the way matt, i like the way julie shut you up when you asked that ridiculous question at the end of the meeting. trying to put words in someones mouth as usual, but it didnt work this time. i actually thought you sounded like frankowski until julie told me differently but then again, not much difference between you two except the weight.

Anonymous

The reason there isn't a story for the anti Nuesse side is because they have nothing in the way of proof. You can't make a story out of nothing. If any of you would look at the 13 page rebuttal that Bailey sent Kline you would see that the real lies were told by Kline and Sams. After reading the rebuttal, which has real proof not just hearsay, I must say that Kline better put Nuesse back as chief or this city will be hit with such a hugh law suit they will have borrow from the MD project to help pay for it. The real dishonest people or person in this story is not Nuesse. Read the 13 pages people before believing anymore of the lies of the anti Nuesse people.

The SR  handled the Nuesse fiasco effectively keeping the public well informed and did not bury the news as in the past.  That fact demonstrates some promise that the SR is doing its part to address some of the GOB injustices in this city. Nice work Matt and the entire SR staff.  You are earning some trust and confidence not to mention tons of credibility!

Stahl thinks he is God. He so cocky, smug and arrogant during the meetings it just makes me sick. When Murray was absent from a meeting about a month ago and Craig had to fill in as "prez" he was just blatantly rude to the citizens of this great town. Not to mention I think he got his jollies being in charge. I will celebrate the day Stahl leaves office!

sympathy to m. kline & commissioners..
during the past 10 years one person has run this city...his "body of work" speaks for itself. check the years 1998-present and you will discover lawsuits, discord, probation, resignations, terminations, investigations, and a general malaise that has befallen sandusky. the dark cloud will remain as long as don c. icsman runs the city. he is almost 60 years in age. he has five more years until retirement.don c. icsman will outlast every person who sits at the table at 222 meigs st. this is his domain. it is all so sad. so very very sad.

Some of you can't seem to discern between an editorial piece and an actual news story. When you can read the writer's opinion, it is an editorial. (That's what this is.) As for the poster who stated, "The SR NEVER prints anything true", I guess that means Mr. Damschroder's plane didn't crash, Cedar Point doesn't have a new ride, and there is no such thing as Bike Week. You're just as full of it as the people you criticize.

I guess from what you describe as the difference between an editorial and an actual news story means that the Murman report is an editorial and not an investigation. I have to agree it was an editorial.

Matt is doing his job. If it wasn't for the SR digging into this mess, and printing what is going on, we, the citizens that are paying for all this, would never know what is happening. Keep the info coming.
Matt's job is to sell newspapers, and I believe he probably has increased circulation quite a lot thanks to the stupid things happening at city hall, the Nuesse saga, dopey iceman, and all the dumb things Smoochie Stahl and others continue to do and say.
This present group of city commissioners is the best thing to ever happen to Matt.

This all started when Thom Darden was playing in the secondary for the Browns. With only a few seconds left on the game clock, the Browns were leading the Minnesota Vikings by less than 7 points. Fran Tarketon heaved a Hail Mary pass that was caught by Sammy Jones (now known as Ahmad Rashad), with no time left on the game clock, the Vikings scored six points and won the game. Things have never been...wait a minute, what's that you say? That was Thom Darden Jr that got burned by Sammy Jones? Oh...never mind.

Stahl is not the only one on the commission who just does not know what is going on right in front of him. That loud mouth Julie who seems to spout off without knowing what she is talking about is worse then Stahl by a long shot. She was mouthing off about the parking ticket for Nuesse and didn't even know that Kline signed off on it. How ignorant can you be.

Everytime I check in to see if anything has changed, and now that the truth is out, thanks to SR and Matt, and still it continues, blaming reporters etc.for ruining this city, I would love to know how many of the Nuesse haters are voting for John McCain, I would bet 100 percent are. You need to get off the computer,and watch CNN orMSNBC, that is where you will get your minds off of Matt etc. If McCain gets in because of idiots, not just Sandusky, but all of America,we might as well move out of the Country. If Kline decides to give Kim back her job, you need to accept that, whether you like it or not.Just as we have had to sit and watch our country become a place we no longer can be proud of, because YOU chose for us to be "BUSHED". Please sit back and get your mind on something else.

It doesn't matter who you get as president, he does not run this country. It is run by the house and senate. He cannot pass laws, only the Congress can do that.

So interesting newly appointed Sandusky City Commissioner Bob Warner/ Union President being the chosen/selected one.Bob's bring his union experience to the table will be interesting.BOB'S UNION POLITICAL ENDORSEMENTS ARENA INCLUDES DEMOCRATIC POLITICIANS LIKE, Tomas Ferrell Jr.-Dennis Murray Jr.-Bill Kimberlin-Pat Shenigo-Bill Monaghan-Terry Lyons . Bob's track record shows he only endorses Democrats.Bob's endorsements means a lot to the Democratic Party. This could be a conflict of interest when it comes to Union endorsememts & being a Sandusky City Commisioner, being they both are run like a Business and no place for shoddy politicks in the political arena of city business.

Bob Warner is a camera/media hungry loser. He will do anything to get his name in the paper. He won't be able to keep his big mouth shut at the commission meetings. You could tell the first day that he was dying to open his mouth when someone was talking to Julie Farrar. Pretty sure he was passing her notes so she could say what he wanted. Just wait, he will hang himself. He DOES have personal agenda, and it is all union motivated. He doesn't do anything unless there is something in it for himself.

Matt Westerhold being the expert journalist that he THINKS he is....should run for City Commissioner. Matt seems to have all the answers and is oh so wise about the ways of the world. In my REAL opinion, I wouldnt let Matt Westerhold shine my shoes. I wouldnt let him walk my dog....

I sometimes wonder how many complaints the SR recieves everyday about Westerhold. I mean in this line of work, are complaints good? Does it mean that the journalist receiving the complaint is bringing attention to the paper, thus making their sales go up? What if people began contacting the advertisers and threaten to not give them any business. Maybe my complaints and those of us who have written formal complaints about Matt make him look actually good to the "Powers That Be" at the SR. I mean if the man has no morals, which he definatly does not appear to have, then where is his incentive to stop spewing hatred. I was always under the impression that a newspaper was there to report THE FACTS and be unbias, was the person who taught me that wrong? This blog is not a "Name Callin'" blog or meant to blast anyone but the person in question MW, I would really like to know of those of you who have threatened to complain about him, did you actually do it and what kind of response, if any did you get???

Did you see how fast Baxter jumps back over the fence when he found out that the vote wouldn't go down to reinstate Nuesse. Baxter can't make up his mind which side of the fence he wants to be on.

Not only can Westerhold not write very good, but he can't read or at least read what is written in black and white. If he could read and comprehend, there is no way he should have headlines blaring the "Baxter Blasts Details in Murman Report." If that letter is an example of "blasting" I would like to know what dictionary or other reference source Dip Stick Westerhold was using. And speaking of water boys, it certainly appears that Dip Stick Westerhold is carrying a lot of water for Nuesse or maybe something else is going on behind the scenes??? Get a life Dip Stick and if you were smart you would get out of journalism because you don't even rate a one or a two with regard to creditability and unbiased reporting.

Warner did run for commission a few years back. That was when there were 11 running for four seats. He lost BIG TIME! He almost had the least votes of all of them. Now by going to meetings, getting himself recognized and s*cking up to the current good old boys, they picked him. The public should have been able to vote. Crooked politics as usual.

Well Mr. Westerhold, I was holding my 'breath' in anticipation of your next editorial(or maybe that was because of your last one, whatever), and now here it is! Speaking of "Good Old Boys" and "Water boys", you are really out doing yourself. The struggle for the hogs to get to the trough of information must be exhausting. You certainly are attempting to get yourself 'in position' to be right in the 'swim' with Kimmie if she gets back into office. Just think, Kimmie, Timmie, and you. Your imagination must be running wild right about now.......

When is someone going to step up and ask the AG's Office to come in and INVESTIGATE, not just this whole FIASCO w/Nuesse, but how our City leaders choose to do business, with whom and why? The more this goes on, the more MANY of us believe THERE IS MUCH TO HIDE ON BOTH SIDES! I'me beginning to believe this whole IMA investigation is a stall tactic on the Citys' part. Must be how the Dems do business? If you really wanted to prove the money spent on the Murman Report was kosher, let alone the report being kosher, someone would be contacting the AG's Office! Ever hear the saying about "the straw that broke the camels back"? With what's gone on in this city over the last 5-6yrs., from 222 Meigs St. down to W. Washington Row, it's been PROVEN an awful lot isn't done on the UP-N-UP! And you wonder why people have DOUBTS?

Westerhold it is too bad you were too breathless to publish the whole truth of what Baxter said. But that has been going on ever since this started. You publish the bull and forget the truth so people do not really know what is going on. This town would be a lot better off without you.

the time has come that MAYBE you should think more of the community than yourself and the people you like; unless you haven't read the paper the Chief is fired yet you four blogs all related to the chief; give it a rest and let's try some positive feedback that might help the community rather than continue to tear it apart

I don't think Matt Westerhold and the SR are biased at all. I believe they feel the same OUTRAGE as everybody else does in seeing yet ANOTHER grave injustice pulled off by these dirty GOB's who think their above the Law.

Stall must GO !!

Unbelievable

This one is beyond words. I can't believe what I have just read. Matt Westerhold, I have said that you were obssessed with this woman. I have to say I have changed my mind. You, my friend, are a ruthless nut. There is not one bone in that body that has an ounce of morals. You made me upset with a story you had written in Sunday's paper, but you know, after reading this one I almost have some sort of pity for you. You should really think about getting some kind of professional help. I am not trying to be rude but you have a major problem when it comes to this story. Well, atleast I can say that you didn't even make me mad this time, you are truly hopeless. I hope GOD can still find it in himself to help you help yourself. Are you that miserable? And your brother, Grant was such a nice guy!

To Matt: I may not agree with you often, but I certainly respect that you have the courage of your conviction. An old, now departed friend of mine, Emmanual Irby, always talked of people who would throw stones and then hide their hands--that certainly cannot be said of you. It is better to get it out in the open rather than let everything fester. You hang in there...

IMO

It seems to me that it is just not right for the managing editor of a newspaper to be so blatantly biased regarding a story, no matter if he is right in his thinking or not. I don't yet know what to think about this whole Nuesse situation, but I really don't think I want the editor of my hometown paper to try and influence how myself and other readers should react. The voters of Sandusky elected Craig Stahl and they can just as easily vote him out of office next time he runs if they are not happy with his performance, just as they can do with any elected official. I feel Mr. Westerhold and the Register should simply focus on accurately reporting what is going on with both sides of this issue and quit taking sides. Mr. Westerhold is overstepping his bounds with this personal aganda of his.

IMO

Sorry, I should have spelled AGENDA correctly at the end of my previous post.

Great job Matt. This of course will be torn apart by the anti Nuesse clan as being biased and lord knows they know bias as they are about as biased as any human beings can get, sorry I didn't mean to insult human beings. They have blinders on and do not have open minds, they only see what they want to see. It is to bad people are so blind to the truth when it smacks them in the face. Keep up the good work and I as always look forward to your stories. They would not know a reporter if they were talking to one.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Finally someone has seen the light! Thats what I have tried to tell people in the past. Westerhold is on her side and thats the story. The SR NEVER prints anything true. They are being just that...biased. That is why the citizens of Sandusky have no idea, all they see are all of his lies.

Anonymous

You seem to be a intelligent enough person but that is what gets me. I have argued with you a couple of different times, you just gave me alittle helping hand in another story. That is why I can't understand why you stand up for Nuesse. Too bad I don't know who you are, maybe that would explain something...I don't know. Why you can not see through Matt Westerhold is beyond me. Can't you see that is all he ever write's is stories about Kim and is always one sided? Doesn't that tell you anything. I have thought many times maybe you are Westerhold himself. Cpt Gutz seems to have disappeared after I asked if he was. Oh well, I guess I will just never understand.

Mr. Stahl pointed out the obvious. Once again Mr. Westerhold bent the truth to make Nuesse's cause look better. He must have learned this smoke and mirror stuff from her. She has told 4 different stories so far: 1 story in the Murman report 2. A different story in her video 3. A third different story in her radio interview 4. And now the fourth different story in her 13 page rebuttal. Get one story and stick to it...please

Anonymous

When will the IMA call in the cards and strike the recall deal.

remember

Remember Stahl made the speach at the debate when running for the commission seat that he was going to turn on the coffee maker and get to business and work as much as he has to to fix the city. Now he is just a lap dog for whoever can get him the most. He has not done a thing other than dupe the residents. What a worthless pathetic man.

I wouldn't hold my breath! Sounded like a good scare tactic to get Mr. Darden in the seat! Funny though. Mr. Darden wanted to be a commissioner but when he served before, all he could was fall asleep at the meetings. Now there's a city leader!!!

As far as the IMA........Nice to see what I predicted........Not one of them are qualified to do an investigation. I like the small print on their last page where it indicates that the informatoin might not be accurate........NICE.

As far as Stahl.......Thank you for standing up for your beliefs at the commission meeting. It's nice to see that at least you, Ms. Farrar, and Mr. Fuqua want to see the right thing done. Mr. Stahl, maybe when this is all said and done, some of these bloggers and Mr. Westerhold (JOKE)will owe you an apology........

Mr. Kline has been put in a difficult place because of the unethical behavior of a lying person. Mr. Kline attempted to discuss problems with Chief Nuesse, however to her detriment she ran to the SR and started a "witch hunt" campaign. She is a very nice person, she is a very bad leader.

The SR is spreading so much BS, not facts. Look at Dr. Morse's letter to SPD yesterday. He said that the SR took his works out of context and he has no personal knowledge of anyone at SPD claiming they couldn't or wouldn't work for a woman. We know for a fact that Gary Frankowski made these comments.

The SR says Baxter "blasts Murman report". Kevin Baxter wrote a letter to show that Westerhold is way too deep into this to see clearly.

Eleven supervisors signed a letter directed to the City Manager and Commissioner's and their thoughts of Chief Nuesse, not just the command staff as claimed by the SR.

The IMA, under the leadership of Matt Westerhold and Gary Frankowski write a long report that includes allegations against two highly respected retired FBI agents, which is a total lie concerning their integrity. I hope the IMA and Thom Darden have their checkbooks ready, the lawsuits coming.

And on, and on, the spin, the lies the deflection of the Nuesse supporters. I hope the general public is beginning to get the clear picture of this Nuesse fiasco, leading right to the corner of W. Market St. and Jackson St.

I can't wait to see Matt Westerhold under oath, on the stand be able to deny he wasn't at Nuesse's house, listening on speaker phone to the commissioner's conversations with the Chief.

Stagnant? You are truly pathetic.
Hey dust bunny, it's been stagnant since they elected you and that big Conehead. Stagnant six weeks? Where have you been for the last four years? You need to start wearing a dust mask. Maybe it is the drugs you stole before they let you go from Stein. Do everything fuzzy, canoe launch, green, how many CEO's did you bring in you MORON? We need jobs! Playing patty cake with the environmentalist and now one of your heros from the Southern Baptist Church who wants a "Dry" Sandusky. That will be great for the entertainment district. We can just sit around and get fat like all of his followers on TV last night. I thought I was watching a revival, I almost changed the channel until one of his nice size followers got up, Where did you get that boufont? Maybe we could all get Pizza or Ice Cream jobs and sneak food on the side. What do you pay per hour Conehead. Smoochy, I did not think you had it in you, I knew Julie had some guts, but you made me proud. Standing in front of pressure like a nineteen year old Marine, that takes guts. Murry you showed your weakness, no guts, no guts in these times are pathetic. How are we going to make it four more years? Fire Kim, hitch the wagon behind Julie (the only woman with guts and integrity), and get to work.

The managing editor now resorts to name calling? Westerhold has reached a juvenile level.

Let me start by saying I don't care if Chief Nuesse is reinstated or not. What I do have a problem with is the lack of ethics and professionalism displayed in reporting this story by the Sandusky Register. It gives all journalists a bad name.

Westerhold has controlled this story from the moment he sat down in Nuesse's home when it all started (admitted to by Nuesse in the Murman report). He has written and published stories under the FROM STAFF REPORTS byline, as documented by Baxter's letter to the commission in which Baxter questioned why Westerhold was doing the interviewing, when this is a reporter’s job. This letter, for some reason, was never made available by the Register. Interesting, considering how every other document was. Why was this letter not put on the Register Web site? Is it because it calls into question Matt's credibility? Why is Matt interviewing and writing stories? Is it too difficult and deflating for the reporters when Matt changes their stories after they've been written? Even today's story appeared to use only quotes that would make the commissioners who voted against Nuesse look bad. It's also a shame that young journalists are being taught this by Westerhold. I hope they're smart enough to know it's wrong and learn from it.

Even if I were a Nuesse supporter, I would have to object to how Westerhold has manipulated this story. Eventually, Westerhold may be on the other side of an issue I'm concerned about and I'd rather have an unbiased report of events than his constant shaping of the news, and even making himself part of the story. He actually admits to calling the commissioner a name then brags about it in this blog! What's the matter, Matt, were you embarrassed that someone called you out in the meeting? I would love to have seen your face when Stahl read that letter. Maybe you should have challenged him to meet you in the parking lot after school. That may have been more mature than calling him names.

I'm still bewildered that Doug Phares allows this type of journalism to take place. How much more evidence does he need to remove Matt from his position? He's proven too immature to hold a position of power. One can only assume Phares approves of Matt's work, which would make him no better than Westerhold.

When this story is done, I can assure you I will never look at this Web site or the print product again until a managing editor with some integrity is put into Matt's position. Even an ounce of it would be an improvement. A previous post called for people to contact Phares. Please do so. Encourage him to take account of what is going on in his newsroom and to talk to the staff under Westerhold. I think he may be surprised what he hears if he would just listen.

I'm beginning to think that Mr. Westerhold is so infatuated with Kimmie, that it has seriously affected his ability to think rationally. Don't be upset Matt, she batted the eye lashes at Mr. McClung too and may his heart sore.....but rumor has it that she and him met befroe she moved her, so he gets first dibs. Believe she might have even smile just right for Big Gary (oooooo sick). Face it, you're in the right company.........scum.

Your ability to write the truth is faulty. It's no wonder Kimmie flocked to you three, liars breed liars.

I just wonder how you sleep at night knowing that there isn't much you will write from this point that people will either enjoy or believe.

Sure it may sell papers and promote these blogs but you're about due for a real GUT check. Kimmie's going to pass you off like yesterdays laundry. Your heart will be broken and then yu will want forgiveness from the general public. Sorry you're on your own.

Bottom line, you're nothing more than a Stalker covered by the first amendment.

That was so on the money! Very well done. After reading that, maybe you should apply for Mr. Westrerhold's job. It's very apparent you have more forethought in a few paragraphs than Mr. Westerhold has had since the onset of this rediculous media support for Ms. Nuesse. Again well done.

For Mr. Westerhold...........Kind of "IN YOUR FACE". don't ya thik????

Doug Phares already knows that Westerhold is a problem and lacks ethics. Remember at the IMA event at the State Theater when he said it would be unethical to do what he was accused of. Well, he's right it was unethical and he sits behind the barrels of ink that inflame the community. Doug Phares will not do anything because tabloid journalism sells papers

first of all, i highly doubt that Tom Darden wrote the IMA letter, but if he did shame on him. the part about the inmates running the asylum on page 23 is a disrespectful cut at every law enforcement officer, especially those at SPD. and by the way matt, i like the way julie shut you up when you asked that ridiculous question at the end of the meeting. trying to put words in someones mouth as usual, but it didnt work this time. i actually thought you sounded like frankowski until julie told me differently but then again, not much difference between you two except the weight.

Anonymous

The reason there isn't a story for the anti Nuesse side is because they have nothing in the way of proof. You can't make a story out of nothing. If any of you would look at the 13 page rebuttal that Bailey sent Kline you would see that the real lies were told by Kline and Sams. After reading the rebuttal, which has real proof not just hearsay, I must say that Kline better put Nuesse back as chief or this city will be hit with such a hugh law suit they will have borrow from the MD project to help pay for it. The real dishonest people or person in this story is not Nuesse. Read the 13 pages people before believing anymore of the lies of the anti Nuesse people.

The SR  handled the Nuesse fiasco effectively keeping the public well informed and did not bury the news as in the past.  That fact demonstrates some promise that the SR is doing its part to address some of the GOB injustices in this city. Nice work Matt and the entire SR staff.  You are earning some trust and confidence not to mention tons of credibility!

Stahl thinks he is God. He so cocky, smug and arrogant during the meetings it just makes me sick. When Murray was absent from a meeting about a month ago and Craig had to fill in as "prez" he was just blatantly rude to the citizens of this great town. Not to mention I think he got his jollies being in charge. I will celebrate the day Stahl leaves office!

sympathy to m. kline & commissioners..
during the past 10 years one person has run this city...his "body of work" speaks for itself. check the years 1998-present and you will discover lawsuits, discord, probation, resignations, terminations, investigations, and a general malaise that has befallen sandusky. the dark cloud will remain as long as don c. icsman runs the city. he is almost 60 years in age. he has five more years until retirement.don c. icsman will outlast every person who sits at the table at 222 meigs st. this is his domain. it is all so sad. so very very sad.

Some of you can't seem to discern between an editorial piece and an actual news story. When you can read the writer's opinion, it is an editorial. (That's what this is.) As for the poster who stated, "The SR NEVER prints anything true", I guess that means Mr. Damschroder's plane didn't crash, Cedar Point doesn't have a new ride, and there is no such thing as Bike Week. You're just as full of it as the people you criticize.

I guess from what you describe as the difference between an editorial and an actual news story means that the Murman report is an editorial and not an investigation. I have to agree it was an editorial.

Matt is doing his job. If it wasn't for the SR digging into this mess, and printing what is going on, we, the citizens that are paying for all this, would never know what is happening. Keep the info coming.
Matt's job is to sell newspapers, and I believe he probably has increased circulation quite a lot thanks to the stupid things happening at city hall, the Nuesse saga, dopey iceman, and all the dumb things Smoochie Stahl and others continue to do and say.
This present group of city commissioners is the best thing to ever happen to Matt.

This all started when Thom Darden was playing in the secondary for the Browns. With only a few seconds left on the game clock, the Browns were leading the Minnesota Vikings by less than 7 points. Fran Tarketon heaved a Hail Mary pass that was caught by Sammy Jones (now known as Ahmad Rashad), with no time left on the game clock, the Vikings scored six points and won the game. Things have never been...wait a minute, what's that you say? That was Thom Darden Jr that got burned by Sammy Jones? Oh...never mind.

Stahl is not the only one on the commission who just does not know what is going on right in front of him. That loud mouth Julie who seems to spout off without knowing what she is talking about is worse then Stahl by a long shot. She was mouthing off about the parking ticket for Nuesse and didn't even know that Kline signed off on it. How ignorant can you be.

Everytime I check in to see if anything has changed, and now that the truth is out, thanks to SR and Matt, and still it continues, blaming reporters etc.for ruining this city, I would love to know how many of the Nuesse haters are voting for John McCain, I would bet 100 percent are. You need to get off the computer,and watch CNN orMSNBC, that is where you will get your minds off of Matt etc. If McCain gets in because of idiots, not just Sandusky, but all of America,we might as well move out of the Country. If Kline decides to give Kim back her job, you need to accept that, whether you like it or not.Just as we have had to sit and watch our country become a place we no longer can be proud of, because YOU chose for us to be "BUSHED". Please sit back and get your mind on something else.

It doesn't matter who you get as president, he does not run this country. It is run by the house and senate. He cannot pass laws, only the Congress can do that.

He will not be able to do what he says he is going to do because the Congress will block him at every turn. Wake up people.

So interesting newly appointed Sandusky City Commissioner Bob Warner/ Union President being the chosen/selected one.Bob's bring his union experience to the table will be interesting.BOB'S UNION POLITICAL ENDORSEMENTS ARENA INCLUDES DEMOCRATIC POLITICIANS LIKE, Tomas Ferrell Jr.-Dennis Murray Jr.-Bill Kimberlin-Pat Shenigo-Bill Monaghan-Terry Lyons . Bob's track record shows he only endorses Democrats.Bob's endorsements means a lot to the Democratic Party. This could be a conflict of interest when it comes to Union endorsememts & being a Sandusky City Commisioner, being they both are run like a Business and no place for shoddy politicks in the political arena of city business.

Bob Warner is a camera/media hungry loser. He will do anything to get his name in the paper. He won't be able to keep his big mouth shut at the commission meetings. You could tell the first day that he was dying to open his mouth when someone was talking to Julie Farrar. Pretty sure he was passing her notes so she could say what he wanted. Just wait, he will hang himself. He DOES have personal agenda, and it is all union motivated. He doesn't do anything unless there is something in it for himself.

Matt Westerhold being the expert journalist that he THINKS he is....should run for City Commissioner. Matt seems to have all the answers and is oh so wise about the ways of the world. In my REAL opinion, I wouldnt let Matt Westerhold shine my shoes. I wouldnt let him walk my dog....

I sometimes wonder how many complaints the SR recieves everyday about Westerhold. I mean in this line of work, are complaints good? Does it mean that the journalist receiving the complaint is bringing attention to the paper, thus making their sales go up? What if people began contacting the advertisers and threaten to not give them any business. Maybe my complaints and those of us who have written formal complaints about Matt make him look actually good to the "Powers That Be" at the SR. I mean if the man has no morals, which he definatly does not appear to have, then where is his incentive to stop spewing hatred. I was always under the impression that a newspaper was there to report THE FACTS and be unbias, was the person who taught me that wrong? This blog is not a "Name Callin'" blog or meant to blast anyone but the person in question MW, I would really like to know of those of you who have threatened to complain about him, did you actually do it and what kind of response, if any did you get???

Since we have such a lack of leadership on the city commission let's move toward two year terms so we are not stuck with a bunch of losers for four years and that way more citizens may have an opportunity to replace ineffective commissioners...

Let's reduce the number of commisioners to three (Same as County). Pay them comparable pay and benefits. I guarantee you won't get four commissioners running for four seats then.
