It's all about agenda, Bud

Matt Westerhold
Mar 23, 2010

Sometimes some paragraphs in Register stories just aren't as descriptive or as precise as they might be. Here are a few examples:

Headline: County dispatch study is delayed

Fourth paragraph: (County commissioner Tom) Ferrell, who chairs a committee of officials looking at the possible merger (into a county controlled dispatch center) was not happy about the delay.

A committee? Really? Strikes me the group Tom Ferrell put together to push his dispatch agenda could more aptly be described as "a group of buds," or GOBs. Some people also refer to this group as the Good Old Boys. The closed-door secret GOB meetings on dispatch took place at the Market Street fire station, or the sheriff's office over coffee. The open meetings for the group probably were at Manny's restaurant.

Many have long believed the Democrats hold all the political power locally. But anyone in the know always knew it was the GOB.

Seventh paragraph: Ferrell said the company (doing the study) needed more time to collect data on the number of emergency calls dispatchers receive compared to the number of business calls.

Say what? Seven months wasn't enough time to secure this vital information? C'mon Tom. We might not be members of the GOB, but that doesn't mean we're stupid.

It's all about agenda, Bud. All about agenda.

Yours.

You are one SICK individual. Go have some fun instead of living in you little Nuesse, GOB bubble Matt. Why dont you go delete some of the trash talk about "Sweet Pea" or the woman that fell over board, or the baby that got choked. YOU are PATHETIC!

You just can't let that "GOB" obsession you have go can you Westerhold? The only thing I can come up with is jealousy. After all, what else could it be to be THAT obsessed? I know for me personally, I absolutely hate the SR anymore. Most people I speak with feel the same way. I have never seen such a biased newspaper in my life. Seems to be a little bit too "republican" for my blood also. I used to get the paper home delivered...quit that...I used to buy one every morning once I got to work...quit that...now I buy the "Morning Journal". They aren't biased in the least they simply report the news truthfully. Seems to have more news also. So, Mr. Westerhold, keep up the good work! Hopefully you will seek help soon for your obsession.

Cancel your subscription to the SR. Get all your friends and family to cancel the SR. Demand that the SR fire Westerhold or you will not return as a customer. If enough people act, he will be gone!

There has already been SO many that have canceled, according to what I have been told anyway.

...he's doing great job--he's got everyone mad at him. Don't cancel your subscription. The Register is the best source of information available. It's not perfect, but it's better than no information. Besides, it's got an editor who isn't afraid to mix it up a little.

Why don't you leave Matt alone. What do you want him to do anyway? Paint a pretty picture of the GOB's for your benefit or what? Do you really think that MATT is the one that has formed the opinions of others? If so, I think you are sadly mistaken.

Thanks to all that continue to cancel the SR. I talk with more individuals each day that have or are going to cancel.

Well Matt, looks like we know where the phrase (Good Ole Boys), and initials GOB came from now.

2 things. One, Go and read the ORC 9.68 and write about that so the people of Ohio are better informed! Two, A centralized dispatch would work out much better because it would be easier for communications for all. Things would expedite quicker. Also, if we could get on the plain language standards homeland security would know what is going on. Instead of 86 60 or 60a or 21. You should know the one about 21 Matt. You have been a 21. We all have at least once in our lives. Take a hint. Your blogs s@ck and the information you pass around isn't complete or really telling us anything. Do something useful

Committee is to Ferrell as Newspaper is to Westerhold.

If I really hated a newspaper so much I would not be reading it and commenting on every article. Keep up the good work Matt. Hopefully this will be the last year we will have to tolerate Tom Ferrell. He tries to get his name in the paper when he is up for re-election but when he gets back in office he doesn't do anything constructive.

Ya know what's kinda funny.
All these posters who detest Matt and the SR but continue to post on the SR website. If Westerhold and the SR bother you so much why do you continue to use their service to complain about them? Before the SR provided us with this forum, we had no way of voicing our opinions, or expressing our thoughts. Now we have. If you are so dissatisfied with the SR you are free to go some where else. You seem to be acting like a bunch of hypocrites.
Keep the information coming Matt there are many who appreciate it.

Matt, is that you?

You really should take some lessons from your co-workers Mr. Jackson and Mr. White. Their blogs are truly interesting...they are not hung up on any one certain thing! And we all know what that would be.

How about just printing the truth and nothing but the truth. All that I am seeing here is a group of GOBS going after another group of GOBS. Reminds me of the Bugs Moran gang feuding with Al Capone's gang. You can't go wrong with the truth. Matt, you and Marie have an agenda with Dwelle. Why? Please explain.

My post was deleted from several blogs this week. I don't know why. I only wanted to know why the Sandusky City School buses were running. I was held up by one Tuesday at 7am. It only had around five kids on it. Same Thursday. I would like to know why, if the schools are in dire straights, they have enough fuel to run in the summer. Is there some program, that I, as a taxpayer, should know about?

I sometimes wonder why Matt Westerhold is working for some small town "tabloid", when he seems to THINK he is smart enough to run both the City of Sandusky and Perkins Twsp.. Matt, you seem to have all the answers, but since no one really cares what you think or say.....I guess youll have to keep looking in the mirror and telling yourself that you matter....
