Charlie Sams can handle a yo-yo

Matt Westerhold
Mar 23, 2010

His testimony in the Nuessegate hearings is laughable, but here's a comment from a reader that accuses Charlie Sams of being a dead-ringer for famous 1960s humorist Tommy Smothers.

Interim Sandusky police chief Charlie Sams testifies on the second day of Nuesse's civil service hearing. Tommy Smothers works his yo-yos.

You decide. Tommy Smothers or Johnny Carson.

I see Matt has a new foto of himself above his column on-line.............In the old one he looked like a young Jackie Gleason or a young Rodney Dangerfield. No wonder he don't get no respect! But hey, I'm on your side Matt. Go after these dirt bags and expose the whole lot.

I think Matt looks JUST like Judge Reinhold!

But seriously...

Why is everyone so worked up about this. This kind of ribbing is a long standing tradition in the paper industry. Go back and look at some of the editorials from the WRH days, or some of the old political cartoons (pre-FDR, specifically). It's satire folks!

Has anyone watched Citizen Kane recently?

continue to ridicule public officials and public servants does a disservice to this community and contributes to the apathy and sarcastic tone that has blanketed this area ever since Westerhold has become the so called editor of the Sandusky Ragister. Keep it up Matt and there will be no one left to buy your paper and read yours blogs.

All the ridicule and apathy is your fault Mattie-boy (said w/intended sarcasm)! I do believe our public officials are public servants, there is no difference. I've noticed their inability accept, even address any CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM, has led to the SARCASM? Understanding the jist of the word apathy, personally, I'm finding them to be the ones APATHETIC!

Sams was always passing the buck if he couldn't handle it,and frost what is he
doing these days nothing like he did before nothing.

Sams is a yo-yo................Back and forth, up and down..........Whichever way suits Charlies' agenda.

Constructive criticism involves telling someone what they are doing well, in addition to what they can do better. All I am hearing is plain criticism, bordering on belly-aching.

The hallways haven't been the same since you left. They miss you! No one to sit and be a hallway monitor.

Great job Matt. Please don't listen to all the losers under me. I vote for Sams looking like Tommy Smothers.

Regardless of which side you are on, Sams has a job. Oh wait a second, Kim. He has your old job -- the one that you couldn't handle without lies and deceit. You can say Sams looks like anyone you want. Kim, we don't have to say what you look like -- we and now the rest of the general public (from watching your lame performance on the Sandusky Register video)know what you are ... a LIAR.

Once again, I come on here to be Matt Westerhold's whipping boy and to stroke his ego. In fact, if you havent figured it out by now, I am Matt Westerhold, I mean why am I so obssessed with what celebrity everyone looks like. I mean look at my name "NineMM" its a tough guy name, everyone who sees it knows not to mess with me. I mean after all I sit here in my parents basement under an assumed name and belittle the very men and women who protect my life and property, then have to put up with low lives like myself judging them.

I have posted on here so many times my head spins when I think about it. As you can see by my name, I do not like Matt Westerhold. I think anyone who sits in the comfort of an office and ridicules public servants, i.e. Police/Fire/Politicians, is a coward. Since this Nuesse thing has started Matt has been on her band wagon and not matter what comes out about this woman...he has something bad to say about those who ARE NOT being accused of being unethical. My question is, WHY? Why is he doing this?? This is not investigative journalism, it is a man whose only claim to fame is insulting public officials, including cops. Matt never answers these questions, cause as I said...he is a Coward. I have never had the misfortune of meeting Matt but I know people who have. I dont make a habit of hanging out with people who sit in the comfort of their office chair and pick on the men and women who put their lives on the line every day. What is it that Matt has done that contributes ANYTHING to society?? His job is to incite people. To turn people against the police and I believe that should be considered criminal. I am sure by now Matt knows who I am, I know he has the ability to find that out and I really hope he does. Where is Matt when a woman is being beaten by her husband? Or there is fight at a downtown bar with 200-300 people involved? Or a drunk who would rather see a cop dead than obey the law. Cops have to deal with all this, then have to sit and listen to this so called "journalist" bash them. Charlie Sams is not perfect, but he has spent his career saving people, what in this world has Westerhold done? NOTHING!!! The way I see it, is the only people who really feel good about themselves while they are bashing cops or cops wives are low life criminals who have all the reason in the world to hate cops. So what does that say about Matt?? Matt youre a joke and I think deep down you know you are....so keep up your cowardly job and never have to answer YOUR critics.....

Cancel the register until westerhold is fired!

Matt Westerhold and others are exposing the TRUTH about this county---the TRUTH that not too many people will ever know UNTIL they become a VICTIM. And if anybody thinks that they never WILL become an innocent victim of the CORRUPTION in this county don't be so sure-----I never thought I would, either. When I say these GOB's are despicable it's an understatement. And I have all documentation to prove it.

GREAT blog! You said it ALL. You speak the TRUTH. I am impressed!

I see this story made the top ten. Matt, you are so full of yourself it is sickening. Do us all a favor and get over yourself.

Exposing what truth???? That Charlie Sams looks like Tommy Smothers??? He hasnt exposed anything except a sad pathetic school boy crush on someone who would never give him the time of day in any other situation. he has exposed his intelligence (or lack of) and he has exposed that he is slowly but surely understanding the judicial process. That witnesses who have not testified can not sit in on other witnesses. He is a moron and if you get pulled in by his worthless rhetoric, then you have a smaller brain than he does and that is saying something!!

I could not agree more. I will never purchase another addition of the Register while Westerhold is still the Editor.

Thank you to all those who have canceled the register. Also thank you to all the many employees who have quit their jobs at the register. Many have fled because of westerhold. Notice all the new young reporters. They are leaving in big numbers.

Well, that explains the HIGH NUMBER of anti-Matt comments here. But why didn't you just use one name? It appears that you spend ALL DAY here writing anti-Matt comments. "Posting on here so many times" indicates you are very desperate. LIARS become desperate when their lies are about to become exposed. Liars and crooks will do anything to keep from being revealed, including "posting on here so many times your head spins." The truth comes out, only one person is responsible for all these anti-Matt comments here. Thank you "Matt Hater...." for helping to put this blog in the "Top Comments" section.

Keep up the good work Matt, you got the GOBs running scared.

Sam

Story line- Matt can't understand how to use a yo-yo, or Matt's nickname Yo-Yo. Another fine story line from the Registerag

If you canceled the register why are you on the register`s web site? Do you miss getting the register?

Taxpayer

At least Matt has a sense of humor. Keep up the good work Matt and keep reporting the news that all the people hate you for. I love it.

You can read it on line free.

Matt, Do you really think this is news worthy or even funny? Put some time and effort into a story about our town that reflects the good in people.

Anonymous

Time will soon be running out for the GOBs to get their stories straight.

Can't hardly wait to see how Icsman, Kline and Murray handle their stories...at least the GOBS were partially successful in delaying the most damaging news before the Nov. 4th election.
