Putting off meal preparation is sabotaging progress

Ken Gipe
Mar 23, 2010

The week of March 8 was a great workout week and only a so-so diet week. The workouts with Trevor were some of my best since we began. I completed three workouts, each about 90 minutes. I am beginning to feel a little quicker in my agility drills and much stronger with the weights.

I am a little depressed about my ability to eat as often as I am supposed to because I have not done a good job of planning ahead. I have always been a procrastinator and this personality trait is not helping me to achieve maximum benefit. I am great at hitting deadlines, but I usually have crammed everything in at the last minute, and with this program I must do better at planning.

It is amazing how your personality has so much affect on everything you do or try to do. Not only am I fighting the weight battle, I am trying to change one of my basic personality traits. This is actually proving to be more difficult than I thought. If this was coming as easily as my progress with the training aspect of the diet, I would be much further ahead. If anyone has any ideas for helping me to overcome my procrastination as far as the  meal planning is concerned, please let me know.

I got all three of my workouts in the morning last week and that was much better. I had good energy throughout the day and was able to get to sleep easier at night.

Hey Matt, at least get the Judge's name right! It's Joseph Cirigliano, not Richard!

It appears like the Sandusky Register just might be banned from printing anything else about the railroading of Kim Nuesse. Maybe so the Lorain Journal can print exactly what the GOB's want? Which makes me wonder if the GOB's really believe that Westerhold and the SR are responsible for all the OUTRAGE that is coming from this community? I don't think so. I think the Nuesse case INSTEAD is the straw that finally broke the camel's back....

How do you like that Matt?? The one judge you didnt want to see is picked and there is nothing you can do about it!!! LOLOLOL!!!! So now you see your worthless comments make no difference and if anything you are a detriment to the "Nuesse Camp". I love when things happen that you dont want to happen....so you love when people write hateful things about you on here because you know people are actually reading your sad column. I am sure it is because people like to read the sad pathetic writings of a little school boy who has a crush on someone who wouldnt give you the time of day other wise. Are you having flashbacks of high school when the cheerleaders always laughed at you while you were writing about sports instead of having the ability to actually PLAY. Now here we go again, doing all you can to impress the hot blonde EX police chief, who thinks youre nerd.....now soon she will be gone.......I think the T-House is hiring dancers, make sure you tell her....

What???? That is ALL the SR reports on anymore....what are you talking about?? Who knows what they will do when this all does blow over, which I am assuming it will SOMEDAY!!!

Lorain Journal is a better newspaper ALLAROUND anyway....better reporters, better writing, better sports...

I can honestly say that I have never encountered a more vicous, hateful person in my life as the one that made the last two comments. There's a new book out that can be found at Borders at the Mall. It's called 23 MINUTES IN HELL by Bill Wiese. For your own sake read it.

The city of Sandusky is dead, leave it to the thugs and drugs.

Way above the national average as far as the crime index is concerned. (FBI Statistics)

A school system that always fails to meet state indicators. 4 out of 30 or something like that.

Hundreds of homes for sale/rent along with falling property values.

Terrible leadership...too many examples.

Poor job creation and a shrinking tax base. Among the state leaders as far as public assistance and unemployment.

Dozens of registered sex offenders all over the place.

A police department that is constantly over worked and under fire from the community.

Crack heads and heroin/meth addicts wandering around misbehaving.

Unsupervised children whose parents could care less about them walking the streets at all hours of the night.

Abandoned homes destroying property values on just about every block.

Loose pit bulls getting shot by the police.

Couches and weight benches on porches.

Litter all over the place....except wahsington park.

etc etc etc etc

It is really sad to see what my hometown has turned into. We left a few years ago while we could still get something for our home. It appraised for over 85K and we were happy to get 60K for it. Funny thing is, the house was a block from the waterfront.

Should have been primo property right? Nope not in Sandusky. Meigs Street and all those that run into it are quickly turning into the worst part of town. Check the daily log. How many times do you see E. Monroe, Madison, Jefferson, Adams, and Market in there? Then add the streets that run North and South and you get Perry,Warren,Franklin, Huron Ave and yes..... Hancock.

I am pi$$ed of as all get out with the leadership of Sandusky for allowing what were once nice neighborhoods to turn into the hood. I called down to the City Building constantly to complain about various things and nothing ever got done. I took pictures of run down houses and the activity that was taking place to the housing department. I called the police to report crimes. I wrote letters to anybody that would listen. Finally, we just stopped trying/caring.

It would seem to me that Sandusky has bigger problems to address. The problems is, everybody knows it and nothing ever gets done.

I will agree with your assessment of our community, but only to an extent. Our community is salvagable. It took years for things to get as messed up as they are, and it'll take years to fix it. The marina district is a step in the right direction, so long as development continues to spread throughout Sandusky once the waterfront has been developed.

I havent been deleted in a while, good to know I hit a nerve Matt...you snake! As for the moron who says good job to the SR for deleting "Nuesse Hater" posts.....youre too naive to realize if the SR can sensor us, they will also sensor you when you have an opinion that differs from theirs. Think about it, I know its difficult but try. Anyway, I LOVE having my posts deleted I write them for Matt the idiot to read not you people, so if it gets deleted then it MUST have worked!!!

I have been searching my whole life for someone to look to for guidance and now I have......Matt Westerhold!!!

Where else can you find a man....uh I mean a person, who can sit in his office chair and write about how everyone else should live and have people sing your praises? He is so VERY brave and I can only hope that one day I can have a little boy crush on someone who would never normally give me the time of day....I mean what more can you say???

That irratates me the most! I have seen some horrible blogs in the stories like, Man chokes baby, and the story about Mr. Scally.

you are correct about don c. icsman.. since 1998 d. icsman has controlled the commission and managers.. he only has to flip 4 members to keep his power. when you are as "charming" as he is commissioners have NO chance to irradiate this cancer. he will never be removed. this town is his.

I agree with you, but I have found that when I write things to degrade Matt Westerhold, if they get deleted it means that Matt has read it and knows what people think of him and that is my goal. Those on here who support him and Kim, mean nothing to me, because you could have Kim on video commiting crimes and these people would somehow blame Matt Kline, but Matt Westerhold is getting paid to spew hatred towards the Police Department and he needs to know that no one considers him to be man, he is barely human, but certainly not a man. So when I love when my posts get deleted, it means he read them and I struck a nerve with my comment....that is what I want!!

but when my posts get deleted there is no derogatory remarks, no profane language or anything of that sort. Just my opinion of things that is different than the SR's.

As I read through these posts, I see a lot of people supporting Kim Nuesse. My question here is......what if the accusations are correct? Do you honestly think that the entire Police Department, the entire commission, the City Manager, the Law Department, the Erie County Sheriff, County Prosecutors are ALL lying and Nuesse is the ONLY one telling the truth? Because that is what would have to happen, ALL above would have to be involved, there is no way!!! By now, if this were the case, someone from one of the people listed above would have come forward, either in person or secretly. I am not implying there isnt corruption in some city governments, maybe even some people in ours.....but we are talking over 100 people here and Kim's only allies are...Dan Kaman, Gary Frankowski and Tim McClung. I dont count Matt Westerhold, because he is just being used as a pawn in this and is too dumb to realize it. I realize everyone wants to believe that the Police Department is corrupt, but c'mon really, those of you with sense, I mean not those who just hate cops because youve been arrested or given a speeding ticket, where would we be without them? So IF the accusations are true and they are, why would we want to take a chance in having another Tim McClung on our hands. Also, I would also be curious to know how many people who support her have actually met her....

Anonymous

Where in the world did you see any written reports from the, entire commission, the city manager, the law department, the erie county sheriff, county prosecutor that says Nuesse was lying. The only indication came from the PD and that was all verbal, not one piece of written complaint was turned in by these crybabies. Wake up and research this entire lynch mob attitude of this PD.

How OLD is Cirigliano? Why do judges in Ohio have to retire at age 70? If Cirigliano graduated from Baldwin-Wallace College with a B.A. in 1949 and got a law degree from Case Western Reserve University in 1952, then he must be over 80 years old. Elsebeth told the truth about these old judges coming in to fix cases. How many people in their late 70s and 80s have 100% of their mental capacities? Would you want an 80 year old airline pilot? Or how about an 80 year old surgeon? How can an 80 year old so called judge still decide cases in Ohio when the mandatory age for judges to retire is 70? And let's not forget the medications that these old judges have to take that can further impair their mental functions.

Mandatory age for judges in Ohio to retire is 70. But old judges in their late 70s and 80s can be "appointed" to decide cases and send innocent people to prison. These lawyers and judges have a racket going on in Ohio. If this be the case, Let's put all these lawyers and judges onto an Airbus A380 with 80 year old pilots and 80 year old air traffic controllers. The lawyers and judges should not be too concerned that the mandatory retirement age of air traffic controllers is 56. We will just appoint 80 year old air traffic controllers for the A380 Airbus full of judges and lawyers. Of course the Airbus will be piloted by 80 year old pilots.

How many judges and lawyers will fly with 80 year old pilots and 80 year old air traffic controllers at the controls?

Cirigliano HAS to be at least 80 by now and he's not the only one of these old inept retired judges that are getting around the Ohio Law that mandates they retire at 70. The attorneys and judges have a real racket going on here---they know they can count on these CORRUPT old crooks to "fix" their cases and they also know that Ohio is not going to "mandate" the cases that the old geezers are being allowed to "fix". If a hospital ever allowed an 80 year old retired doctor to perform surgery there would be a million lawsuits filed yet OHIO seems to be ignoring THIS RACKET. You can also bet that Cirigliliano has "fixed" PLENTY OF CASES for Baxter and others here in Erie County and you can bet he'll "fix" the Nuesse case, too.....

Westerhold looks like Vince Vaughn!

Maybe the GOBs bring in these old judges because they can be easily manipulated to fix cases. I know a few intelligent elderly people than can be talked into giving up their life savings.

Many old judges have early signs of dementia or Alzheimer's. In addition, many take drugs that can further impair their mental reasoning.

What is really scary is when mentally impaired judges sit on the highest court of the country to decide cases.
And this particular judge was younger than 70 and still was allowed to decide cases. But as usual, there was a cover-up to keep the secret away from the people.

According to the Washington Post, "The late Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist took a powerful sedative during his first decade on the Supreme Court and grew so dependent on it that he became delusional and tried to escape from a hospital in his pajamas when he stopped taking the drug in 1981, according to newly released FBI files."

Wouldn't feel to awful comfortable getting onto a plane at an airport where the pilot and air traffic control are 80yr. olds, who SHOULD HAVE BEEN RETIRED 10 years prior! What's not to get, unless you're just choosing NOT TO?! Look, not all over 70yr. old people are senile, don't have their wits about themselves.....The point, why are RETIRED JUDGES, always the same ones being used by the same people, used to come in and decide CERTAIN CASES? As well, in this particular situation why/how is it proper for the LAW DIRECTOR to be the one picking the JUDGE? Anyone else notice the PATTERN in regards to our COURT SYSTEM here in Erie County over the last 10+ years? When a person has to face the JUSTICE SYSTEM, they're only hope is that system will be fair, honest and above board with them, as it should be with everyone! We can all talk until we're blue in the face, facts are facts. Especially the FACT THAT THIS ALL LOOKS PRETTY WELL ROUTED, and those that COULD/SHOULD do what's best for this particular situation, WON'T! Why is that? This situation casts a bad light on the ENTIRE CITY GOVT., especially the LEADERS, COPS & COURTS!

I seem to remember that both Chiefs,Neusse and McClung, stated the fact that software would be incompatible.Then Tom Ferrell came to the rescue with a plan. A 60k study that would be covered by a grant. I hear that that study on joint dispatch is now over 90k none of which was covered by a grant. Now we have gone full circle and the city is back wanting to talk to Perkins about joint dispatch. And Neusse was the dishonest one?

There sure does seem to be a lot of crap going on in our city. I tried to research the two judges that were recommended by Icsman, Cirigliano and Richard B. McQuade. I couldn't find much on Cirigliano but heard that he was very old, closer to age 85 than 80 as posted in the comments. I have to wonder why K. Ronald Bailey is comfortable with Cirigliano. If I were Nuesse, I would have hired an attorney from away and not from Erie County.

From my readings about Richard B. McQuade, I found the following links and they were not favorable at all. I sure would not want McQuade as a judge.
http://www.noethics.net/Ethical_...
http://www.noethics.net/Watchdog...
http://www.noethics.net/links.htm

Personally, I think that Nuesse would not go along with the powers that be but wanted to do the right thing. I don't like the way that politics or should I say corruption is running things in our city. Perhaps an organized march around the courthouse to protest what is happening might be a good starting point. All that I want to see is accountability and for the truth to come out. I remember years ago when there was a protest march around the courthouse by a group of fathers for divorce reform. Organize a march around the courthouse as a start. Where are those ministers when you really need them?

First off no I am not GOB, what ever that means. I am just a resident and SR subscriber that is tired of this story line. Yes it is unfortunate that the Chief of Police had to lose her job, but I find it hard to believe that Matt Kline has fallen prey to the corruption as everyone seems to believe. The poor guy took a job believing he was making a better life for his family. Unfortunately he was unaware of the small minded people that live in this town.

Is there corruption in Erie County?...I'm sure there is corruption of some type everywhere. Do I subscribe to the fact that this entire town and county are corrupt.....NO!. It seems to me that when something does not go the way someone wants it to, the same small minded people want to scream CORRUPTION!! We as a community need to get past this and let the poeple we elect and the people we or they hire, do their jobs. That is all Mr. Kline is and was trying to do.

Congratulations, Matt! Finally someone with some credibility reiterates what we malcontents have been saying for years.

nice job matt. don icsman's fingerprints are all over the place when it comes to "getting rid" of good people.. when you are as incompetent as he is, (since 1998 he's run a scam on commissioners and the taxpayers)icsman has to take out anyune who could expose him. a full review of his tainted and vindictive past as a person and the misused label, "attorney" would "shock" the taxpayers of sandusky. he is and will continue to be the cancer that has plagued sandusky for 10 years. but remember matt, the commission works for him. this is don icsman's town and it will be until he retires in 5 looong years.

Matt is right - but I think he overestimates the impact of a hearing officer. He doesn't make the decision - he just acts as the referee.

Matt should stop writing about this every week, have his reporters write articles now every other day. The process is in place, whether he thinks it's right or not. Matt doesn't know all of the facts or turns a blind eye to what Nuesse has done wrong. It's quite simple, as she has mentioned in another officer's dismissal...if he(she) can't take responsibility for her actions and her ability to tell the truth and blame others for her own actions, there is no choice but to remove her, as she holds no credibility within the law enforcement community. TAKE SOME STINKING RESPONSIBILITY AND ADMIT THAT YOU MADE SOME MISTAKES..IF YOU CAN'T DO THAT, THIS CITY DOESN'T FREAKIN' WANT YOU.

Anonymous

A lot of times, I have criticized you in the past but I have to agree with you this time, Matt.

"Remember this: A Sandusky city cop received eight MONTHS in prison for repeatedly raping a 15-year-old child, and a woman hell-bent on making Baxter uncomfortable by exercising her first amendment rights received an 8-year prison sentence. It was Cirigliano who sentenced that woman to that long prison term, giving old Kevin exactly what he wanted."

BRAVO MATT!!!!

Open up this can of worms WIDE OPEN and bring the TRUTH to light!!! Let's shine the light on these GOBs.

I agree with you, keep up the digging into the corruption in this town. It has been going on for so long people have turned a blind eye to it.

If that poor little girl you comment about was so scared of that officer, why was it she started dating his son after she was "repeatedly raped"? Fact is you condemn that officer, you have that right. But the real fact is, that officer admitted to his actions. If he wouln't have, he wold have gotten off. The prosecutor even said so,,,,,"No Physical Evidence". So because he was honest and told the truth, he was sent to prison.

That matter and the matter facing Nuesse are apples and oranges!!! Nuesse can see past her inflated ego to admit when she was wrong.

Maybe years down the road she will look back and say, "If I would have only told the truth". Fact is, if she would have told the truth, she might have been able to keep her job. Everyone is entitled to make mistakes, we're human. But poor Kimmie, poor poor Kimmie.

Matt you only write about what she or her lard A$$ buddy Frankowksi has told you. Fact is, most of the things she's in trouble for, was after Lard A$$ retired.

Matt, I think your next job shold be with Penthouse Forum. Your material is about as far fetched as theirs is. Tell me, when Kimmie turns a corner, does she have to signal first so you don't sprain your neck? In the end, you're not even going to get a sniff of those panties!!!!!!!

Apparently you do not watch TV, that is what news commentary is all about. You must be on the other side.

I am neither for nor against Kim Nuesse, but I figured she must have done something seriously wrong to be fired. I have also been critical of Mr. Westerhold's biased journalism regarding Nuesse. But in this case I feel he is correct. Mr. Icsman recommending Judge Cirigliano as hearing officer DOES smack of "good-old-boy" tactics. The city had a golden opportunity to rid itself of it's GOB reputation by recommending a hearing officer with absolutely no ties to anyone on either side of this issue, but it looks like they are indeed intent on manipulating this situation.

Way to go. You show both sides and the GOB nation don't like it. Keep it up, you are not going to please everyone anyway.

I thought newspapers reported the news, not made news. And in the case of Matt Westerhold, makes up the news. Take a small fragment of the truth and spin it to his own left-wing agenda. Only at the Sandusky Register, oops and the National Enquirer.

Elwood

Thanks for continuing to inform the public. It is the only source of info we have available to us. It seems the GOBs are pulling out all the stops to make sure they continue to get their way.
The SR is shinning the light into the dark corners of local government, and the GOBs are running for cover just like the scum bugs they are.
How can the city commissioners, who took an oath to serve the citizens of Sandusky, let this farce with Icsman continue? If they refuse step up and do the job they were elected to do, then it is time to recall the lazy bums.

I am not writing to blog on this story, I just have something to say. Can you please find something interesting to write about so I can blog. There has not been an interesting thing in weeks. I am fed up with the Nuesse saga. I don't know who is right, and I am just going to wait and see. Nothing I can do about it anyway. They have wasted my tax dollars and they aren't about to quit. Give me and my "blogger friends" something to do!

Doesn't Baxter and Iscman know that the retired Judge Cirigliano ties to Baxter could be easily checked out? Or are they so cocky and so confident of their POWER in this community that they just don't care?

Does this retired Lorain County Judge recommended by Iscman get paid for this? If so, wonder if he'll DOUBLE BILL the taxpayers like he's been known to do in the past?

Your right----Iscman had no business recommending anyone to do anything in this matter and Baxter had NO RIGHT to alter a document. As for Baxter being above the law-----he just THINKS he is.

Very true statement THAT THE "FIX" TO MAKE SURE THE FIRED POLICE CHIEF NUESSE STAYS FIRED IS ALREADY IN PLACE. Yet considering how fast this "fix" was exposed, tell them to bring on the NEXT.

The can or worms that is about to be opened is not a pretty sight and you wouldn't believe how many people are all involved. Thank God that some people are finally beginning to see the bigger picture and hopefully ALL of the key players will be brought to trial in the near future. To prosecute the Erie County Justice System under the RICO act is a concept that seems more logical than ever if the truth were to be told. If you want to make Erie County a better place for yourself and your children, you have got to take a stand against corruption once and for all. Look up Erie County, Ohio on the Web and you won't believe how messed up this place really is. Thank you, Matt W. for not allowing the "Good Old Boys" to intimidate you or to pay for your silence.

It truly is a shame that Matt Westerhold continues to spread hatred. Too bad that he is so biased and too bad that the Nuesse supporters have been told only one side of the story through this newspaper, and..they believe it. Just like "ELWOOD" said, it is the publics only soure of info in this matter...too bad it isn't always the TRUTH! The TRUTH WILL come out in the end. Maybe, just maybe Nuesse won't want it to even go there! (If she was smart)

Anonymous

If what you say is true, why doesn't these Nuesse haters enlighten us with the supposed truth. Is it because all they know is to constantly say "If they only knew the truth" but have no proof of this. None of this saying, she is a liar, come out with the proof, like written proof. Is it because they don't really have any written proof, and I don't mean the colusional statement by those backstabbing command people. I just get so tired of hearing how she is so bad, but none of the haters really have any written proof, just what is handed down by word of mouth. I was on the fence on this issue, but with all that I have read, statements, Murman report, Nuesse's reply, the videos, the statement by the command staff, and everything else that has been blogged, I feel Nuesse has indeed been railroaded. You are right about one thing, the truth will come out and when it does there are going to be alot of people, city manager, commissioner, command staff, Baxter, Icsman and others that will have their secret agenda exposed. This they will not like as it will lead to recalls, disbarment, firings, etc. That is if we don't have anymore of the good ol boys doing the investigation.

We can't get rid of SMOOCHY....once Junior leaves for Columbus, he will be the last commissioner to defend this fire station meeting. Unless Fuga and Farrar are going to step up....nah.

The Attorney General resigned not long after admitting he was unqualified for the job. Now it appears the City's Civil Service Commission is unprepared for their job as well. It smacks of the French Revolutionary Court when the prosecutor in this case, Icsman, is telling the court, the Civil Service Commission, who to select for the judge in this case! Talk about collusion!

Anonymous

Whether for or against Chief Nuesse, is no longer the question here! What is, is the appearance that there seems to be quite a manipulation of our judicial system here in Erie County, as well now, the Civil Service Commission! This all didn't start w/Nuesse-gate, but quite a number of years ago, and well before this blog-site was made available! In regards to "It's just too bad"....to end with a threat only makes people think otherwise! I've wondered as to why those that complained against her didn't do it the proper way, PERSONAL grievances through the union rather than GANGING-UP, as well permission to spend taxpayers' money not being sought before hiring Murman for a SO-CALLED investigation, statements made by lead people that were CHANGED, etc.. I've questioned the handling of situations involving officers, one EXAMPLE would be how the whole Fitzpatrick case was handled...how LONG did it take for this man to ADMIT his guilt? Was that before or after his voice stress-test? Did he even take one, cause I believe the victim did! How long did it take for charges to be pressed, let alone brought before a court? Then to do only 8 mos.! If I recall correctly, he was REALEASED EARLY, PLEASE! Here's my point...when you have fellow officers/detectives willing to do what they can to help you out/cover-up what you did, a legal system that can hand-pick JUDGES, WE THE PEOPLE HAVE A MAJOR PROBLEM! Sorry, I have a major problem w/crimes against children, let alone those that will help cover-up or stall any JUSTICE that could be provided to the victims and their families! A light was already turned on and then taken away. How conveneint that was! Someone is only replacing that light w/a brighter bulb! Mr. Westerhold, I may not agree with you on all things, and although there are those that think you're just another RAVING LUNATIC W/AN AGENDA, if there is any SUBSTANCE to what SEEMS TO BE A VERY APPARANT PATTERN here in Erie County, please keep doing what you do. Again, this isn't nor should it be just about Nuesse-gate! Just a personal opinion, anyone involved at a CITY/ADMINISTRATIVE level should have to REMOVE THEMSELVES from any sort of JUCICIAL selecting process, that goes for Mr. Icsman, FIRST AND FOREMOST! As well, why hasn't the Attorney Generals' Office been contacted?

Before Baxter became involved in the firing of Police Chief Nuesse for ALLEGED DISHONESTY, Baxter should have cleaned up his own DISHONEST and ILLEGAL house.

Anonymous

According to a Sandusky prosecutor a County Recorder is required by Law to file anything a Lorain County attorney gives her to file, no matter how DISHONEST and illegal she knows the filings to be..... According to the REAL Ohio Law if a County Recorder does any act, contrary to Section 317.01 to 317.33 of the ORC, the recorder shall be liable to any parties harmed through their negligent errors and ommissions, including those arising from indexing and filings of papers......IT APPEARS LIKE SOMEBODY WAS A TAD BIT DISHONEST HERE.................

A retired Lorain County Judge who sentenced EB to prison for 8 years is recommended by Iscman to be the civil service commission's hearing officer in Nuesse's appeal? Better be careful, Ms. Nuesse---the Big Boys in little Sandtown might come up with some trumped up charges and send you to the joint.

Matt you are the world's biggest loser.
Take Kim and move far, far, far away. If you want to stay in the newpaper business, try an early morning route, far, far, far away! Bye, bye Kimmie & soon Matt.

I would like to know if the ball is in Baxter's court on the Attorney General decision, on what grounds can Baxter refuse to send this request onto the Attorney General's office? What is the procedure with regards to what Baxter does with the request? Does Baxter have that much power to stop the request from going any higher or is he required to send it on? Things have to be pretty serious for a town to request this kind of action and it shouldn't be taken lightly by Baxter.

Why, Mr. Westerhold, do you CONTINUE to DESTROY this city? Do you live here? If not, I suggest you butt out and you and Nuesse leave this city and the people in it ALONE! You have done major damage printing nothing but lies. Why are you so biased? Do you and Kim date or something? I have lived here for 51 years and I AM SICK OF YOU BOTH!

If Elizabeth Baumgartner was as "crazy" as Erie County and others made her out to be, why is she sitting in a jail cell instead of getting help for her so-called mental illness? Considering that she underwent numerous court-ordered psychiatric evaluations and was ruled COMPETENT each time, I guess that says it all.

Anonymous

It appears to me that Matt is backing off because of pressure from the GOBs.
The wrong judge was named but the fact remains the same. A "rent a judge" was called in to FIX cases. A "rent a judge" sentenced a woman to 8 years for her right to free speech. A "rent a judge" gave an ex-cop rapist a free pass from jail.

And Matt, why did you delete all of the comments? Did Baxter give you a call?
The comments had nothing to do if you named the wrong judge. The comments had to go with the ACTIONS of the "rent a judge" whether his name was Cirigliano, Markus or Elmer Fudd. Names do not really matter but what matters are the ACTIONS of these judges that are called in to FIX cases.

And I agree 100% that EB was RAILROADED too as have been other people in Erie County and elsewhere.

Matt, just when people were giving you and the SR credit for reporting the truth for a change, you back off.

Put the comments that were deleted back up. You made your correction as to the name of the judge but the fact remains that "rent a judges" are called in to FIX cases to the satisfaction of those who hired them.

Call in the Feds to investigate the GOBs and their actions the PROPER and CORRECT way. I don't trust these "pay for" investigations by Murman or these "pay for" judges to fix cases.

The Feds will investigate for FREE!!!

Matt retracted his blog at 5:39 p.m. and "WHY" must live on the computer because she/he was the first to post at 7:00 p.m. Wonder how she/he "knew" there was going to be a retraction when nobody else does? Considering how it's very easy to see that "WHY" with her LIAR, THIEF, KIMMEEEEEE is reponsible for at least 75% if not more of the blogs from the Nuesse haters I believe she/he must work for the good OLD boys. PUT THE COMMENTS THAT WERE DELETED BACK UP, MATT!

"WHY" claims she's 51 years old yet her antagonism toward Westerhold proves she's the one behind the continuous LIAR and KIMMEEEE blogs....so which one of the "boys" do you work for "WHY" and why is Elizabeth Baumgartner such a touchy subject? My mother, who is now deceased, had a favorite saying all her life-----"OH WHAT A TERRIBLE WEB WE WEAVE WHEN FIRST WE PRACTICE TO DECEIVE". The good 'ole boys and a lot others sure have weaved a terrible web and their going to get caught sooner or later. It's just a matter of time. You cannot do to people what they have done and actually think that GOD is going to IGNORE it now, do you?

I live on the computer?? Wrong! You are so very vicious. I told you once before I am NOT a GOB, as you call them, not an SPD wife, not a cop, I work for none, just a concerned citizen. You get soooooooo testy. I guess the reason I was the first blog is because I went to SR.com and went to Westerhold blogs, went to the story I was looking for yesterday, saw this one and blogged! What is so hard about that? There is ALWAYS a first blogger is there not? I am 51. You say my antagonism towards Westerhold...am I the one that said..."PUT THE COMMENTS THAT WERE DELETED BACK UP MATT" or was it you? Seems like you are pretty aggravated with Westerhold yourself. Are things not going YOUR way? I wonder if GOD is ignoring your hatred?? I NEVER ONCE said a da** word about Elsebeth. I never knew there wasa going to be a retraction, just fell on it. I am NO where near 75% of these blogs, it appears to me that YOU are. I think that about covers all of your accusations. Any other questions?

Sorry, but I was not even aware of these blogs until a week ago and why would I be aggravated with Westerhold? As for my hatred--who do I hate? It's also very obvious that things must be going your way because after going through all the blogs I noticed that this is the only one with no comments about LIAR, THIEF, KIMMEEEE.....Why not? I also would like to mention---who at the age of 51 talks like that? None of the Nuesse supporters do.

To Whom It May Concern. This city was dying long before Westerhold got here. Dying because of people like you holding back progress. Refusing to go into the future. Is it too late? I hope not. Sandusky was a nice little city a few years back. If we do not do something about the people in charge it will continue dying. Condos and Marinas is not the answer. Before you reply, what is the answer? Unknown!.Downtown will never be the same as it was. We need someone(commissioners) to be in charge that knows how to help instead of hinder progress. People may want to move here and be checking on how it is run and what is being done. Next thing you know, they have found somewhere else to move. Lets move forward SANDUSKY, get rid of the Good Old Boy network before it is too late.

Matt, Baumgartner was sentenced by Judge Shirley Strickland Saffold in Cuyahoga County. Markus was the VICTIM in the case.

What really pi$$es me off is I was just starting to think Matt was actually trying to do some good by exposing the clowns running the city. Then poof, the blogs are deleted. If in fact you were told to do so by your superiors because the people are fed of with the COMMUNISTIC antics of our city leaders, then step up to the plate Matt and tell us. If not, what little credibility you were starting to gain with the readers is quickly diminishing.

Wrong Judge in the retraction? Can't even get a retraction right? Tomorrow's blog: "I have to correct my corrected statement." Also, the word is spelled "sentence" not "sentance". He makes fun of Murman's spelling and inaccuracies. You gotta love this country!

You can remove my comment here as many times as you want! Okay, the name of the judge was wrong, but the situation remains the same! Too many have been brought in from the outside, HAND-PICKED by those who are smack-dab in the middle of all this! They shouldn't be able to, it's UNETHICAL! As I said in another blog, you people down there are OOZING UNETHICAL! Why hasn't the Attorney Generals' Office been asked to come in, and why hasn't our City Commissioners asked for JUST THAT! Again, this has been going on for quite sometime, long before NUESSE ever arrived! This is no longer about Nuesse-gate, but rather the UNETHICAL business of those that run this cit, starting at 222 Meigs St.. Transparent government? You're da#* straight you're transparant! P.S. Still feel the same way regarding crimes against children, even more so if you're a cop! That whole situation there speaks for itself!

Instead of the Good Old Boys causing all this chaos and commotion with the unjust firing of Kim Nuesse why aren't they doing something about all the foreclosures in this county? The paper is chock full so evidently Tone and Binette don't care either. Won't be too much longer and the only thing left for the SR to print will be the newest ride planned for Cedar Point, page after page after page of foreclosures and then how the Good Old Con Boys are preparing for their wealthy retirement thanks to the Sandusky taxpayers.

It is imperative that we maintain and protect our 1st amendment constitutional right, as the promotion of silence will achieve nothing. As a community, we need to keep our eyes open and we should definitely expect much more than we are receiving from our elected officials. We should also hold them accountable for their actions and we as citizens CAN create a positive change. Erie County has the potential to become a great, safe place for everyone. Silence, compounded by the "smoke and mirrors" mentality of a chosen few will surely lead to it's ultimate downfall if we don't address this problem soon.
