Westerhold knows everything......let him pick the next police chief!!!

 I know I would feel much safer with Matt choosing the top law enforcement officer of the city!!  Too bad it can't be Mr. or Mrs. Nuesse/McClung!!

Matt, High Five on the statement about respecting the President because he is the President. My parents reared me to show respect where respect is due and to be patriotic. It is both embarassing and disappointing to me also. Speaking your opinion and being disrespecful are two different things. Showing disrespect for our Commander-in-Chief is unpatriotic. Speaking out against moral turpitude....Lord, we must have grown up in the same era... you a baby boomer? lol. Speaking about Obama...the Register never posted details on getting tickets...is there a reason for that? The president is going to be here today and it appears from the comments those at headquarters have their tickets already. What about the public getting a few?

@Sal Dali, the tickets for the Pres visit will not be going out to the public.  Only 300 were reserved for well connected (ie: well to do folks who can contribute to his campaign).  The regular guy wasn't invited to this high class hob knob.  I love it that people actually believe this President cares about the little guy.  He is just another political hack whose only concern is lining his own pockts.

Sal Dali,

   To quote You, "My Parents reared Me to show respect where respect is due and to be Patriotic."

What do you think the 56 signers on the Declaration of Independence would do?  My bet, considering some gave their lives and their immediate families gave their lives, lost their properties, and died in Poverty, would have little if no respect for the way "Their" country has been run the last 3 years.

Sal Dali

Considering most probably owned slaves, they'd be irrate. They'd drop over dead all over again if they witnessed how the Rupubican in office 4 years ago buried our nation in debt and caused many parents to bury their children as a result of the war he started in Iraq. Obama haters seem to forget all the screw ups their past Presidents have made. Why is that? You've really had some doozies but I'm not here to slam. I wasn't special enough to see the President in person today but I did view the entire event on television. I was proud of him when he got elected and I am unmoved by the constant rhetoric from naysayers commenting here. Although it is fun ruffling some conservative feathers once in a while  :D When it comes down to it we are all human beings and we all have flaws, yes, sorry to disillusion you but Republicans are also flawed. Unless they can figure out a way to fix another election, I expect Obama will be re-elected. I wasn't too sure about him when he first got into office but he has my vote without hesitation this time. I've learned to ignore the negative politicing and focus on the man and his plan for all the people, not just those who are already wealthy. We couldn't do any worse than George Jr. I bet Obama isn't hiding money in offshore accounts.

Mr. Westerhold did not imply he knew who would be the best candidate; he questioned the qualifications of the selection committiee. Like others, he asked what law enforcement knowledge and experience do the two council members and selected citizens possess to select a police chief.

Due to the recent past history regarding actions taken by the leaders of the SPD, it is important to carefully select the best candidate.

I personally feel they should come from outside the immediate area, so as NOT to have any sense of obligations to a select few and not be politically tied to any individual in city hall. After all, did we not select the city manager from outside the area?

"Their country"?  It's your country now so do something to make it better if you are SO concerned about the signers!  What a joke!  Some of you have to be part of the Barnum & BAILEY CIRCUS!

I agree. High 5 to Matt W. about respecting the President because he is the President.

That said, I think wiredmama did a good job. Very professional.

You have both put the gag reflex back!!!  You are so RIDICULOUS !  This interview is only again a WASTE!!!  You proved it with the McClung theory! Wiredmama is duplicitous in most of her questions vs co mments.  I would have hammmered him to the point of the REAL reason why he has such an axe to grind with not just the SPD, but LE as a WHOLE!  This was only another reason for me to laugh at your level of journalism! Seriously?  Come on Matt!!  Wirdmamma?  This was the best BTL you could come up with...and really...who cares what she thinks????  You are so sincerely embarassing as a managing editor.  Get this paper together and get something worthwhile going on before I fall asleep again.  I am so unaware that WIREDMAMMA was the voice of our community? Holy cow...what a waste!!

I am certainly NOT IN THE KNOW of how things are gonna go down. However, I am POSITIVE that if this SR continues with the only VOICE to represent this community the SPD has a better chance of moving FORWARD than this ridiculous paper!  Seriously???  That was a BTL and you feel proud??  You go WREDMAMMA.....alll the way to the dentist and the hairdresser!!
