Change is good

The last paragraph from the Murman report executive summary recommends Kim Nuesse not be reinstated as Sandusky police chief "unless the city is prepared for the wholesale replacement of the command and support staff."

So be it.

Does Chris Redfern want some Cheese with that Whine. Chris you cry us a stream-river wheezer when we vote in 2 Republican Erie County Commissioners this Election Year.The democratic party leads should have told you ,if you can talk the talk and can't walk the walk-DON'T WHINE & CRY. So if you can't Run with the BIG DOGS stay on the PORCH.Chris you are just like your democratic Buddy Tom Ferrell Jr. a real whiner.

Can't stand the heat then get out of the kitchen. Maybe if you actually did your job people wouldn't be so upset with you.

If Chris gets bad press then his campaign contributions will go down and he won't be able to live in his mansion. Boo hoo "Mr." Redfern. I have sooo much pity towards you.

tk

I once wrote a letter to the editor critical of comments made by Redfern. Redfern called me saying he had not made the comments as quoted in the SR. He also called the editor to complain, the editor then called me to ask where I had gotten my information. I told him I got it from the SR and ask him if you could not believe what the SR printed. It was a regular three ring circus all because "Little Crissy" couldn't handled being criticized.

Mr.Redfern : Presidential election year and you being the Chairman of the Ohio Democratic Party, must be a hard job knowing Hillary & Rover Bill can't catch - keep up with Barack Obama.We hear alot of talk about a split vote in the Democratic Party this Presidential election year.Chris you know John McCain is a real War Hero ( POW ). John McCain should visit the Ohio Veterans Home around the 4 of July-Independence Day so we can meet a past veteran-serviceman who served our Great Nation-Country

it's not free speech when you but stuff up here that is not true. Those are lies and the Register is a liar if they print them. Make the people do the same thing they have to do when they write a letter to the editor of this sorry rag. You wouldn't print a letter to the Editor that came from "crackhead" with no phone number and no real name would you Matty boy????

In my opinion:

10. Elsebeth

9. Perdusky

8. Anne X. Ation

7.

6.

5. Elsebeth - speaks her mind and uses her real name

4. Anne X. Ation - tunnel vision on schooling issues

3. Vladimir Pootin - Immature, but actually funny

2. tt - Knowledgedly covers a broad range of topics

1. Crackhead - I look forward to Crackhead weighing in on issues

Honorable mention goes to the Gyro Cart guys, who are funny but don't qualify for this list because they use different "handles" but the message is consistent, and hilarious.

Mr Redfern fairness isn't right-to-work and anti-labor .Chris you should read the Sandusky Register and see what's going on in your 80th Ohio State District with Union Labor . The Unions do have concerns that need addressed with the Democratic Party this election year.No. 1 being the outsourcing of jobs like the ECSO-FOP-JOBS at the Erie County Courthouse.Mr. Redfern 3 Erie County Commissioners on the board and 2 of them are Democrat.Democrat and president of the board Tom Ferrell is up for re-election this election year.

Looks like the democrates are imploding at all levels, national, state and local politics is always about the economy and jobs..not much to brag about here over the last two Redfern terms...

if a person receives a paycheck from the tapayer, is elected, or goverened by people who are elected, then one should accept criticism. many people draw from the public well. your dollars support their lifestyle. taxpayers have the right and the resposibilty to speak out. apathy has created the situation that sandusky faces. you question the actions of your law director. d. icsman,

salary: $106,000 yr. + benefits. (highest paid public servent in sandusky) yet the elected comm. never question his actions. why? this vehicle allows you that opportunity.

What about '007'? His non-sensical rants are sure to liven up any discussion board!

Otherwise, I like your rankings. You should set up a SR blog "smack off" (Props to the Rome show).

FYI:The only time the Unions see or hear from Chris Redfern is at election time, being he wants the Unions to endorse a Democrat or Democrats.Chris some of the Good Ole Boys Club Democrats are Anti-Union Labor and don't agree with collective bargaining agreements.Chris you should know what's going on behind the scenes ( Propaganda Intimidation Attemps- Tactics To Scare Union Members ).

Thanks for allowing a space for us to speak our mind. Really don't know what my problem was either, but if you did remove them, had to be for a reason. You should be able to remove remarks that are vulger, race oriented, sexist, or just plain out of line. I'm sure I've posted some things that I should not have, but I get caught up in this crap, too. I know of several where I mentioned names of SMWI Local 33 officers and they were deleted. Those guys know who I am, and they know how I feel about their sorry union, and their suit against the city. I read these news articles and comments a lot. Again, Thanks.

There is no way the Democrats should lose any election in Ohio this year. The country is in terrible shape. However, with cry baby Redfern running the show, McCAin will probaly carry Ohio. We've never had a Democratic state chairman hated by card carrying DEMS as cry baby Redfern is. If the DEMS win in Ohio, it will be in despite of the glory hog, Chrissy. Prissy Redfern.

In other words Redfern called you guys like the cry baby he can be at times. At least not maybe more people will notice how he acts.

So Mr. White, do you think that you’ve seen enough of the amateur song-and-dance and are ready to hook ‘em in?

Anonymous

what I've decided....you people that posted all this stuff about Redfern this week are all just jealous of him....jealous of his success....jealous of his intelligence......jealous of his wifey (who is a babe and also very nice).....

jealous of his youthful appearance and of his good looks.

So stick it in your ear and go back to your computer games or your caves or where ever you came from or reside. That includes you too Matty boy. He's where you all wish and dream you were.

How about this for an idea, let have 2 bloggers that use the same name all the time go on WLEC and have callers ask them questions on the air live. I don't know about you but reading what these people write I always wondered what they sounded like. Besides WLEC could use something new and exciting, plus let the bloggers on here pick and vote for who they want to speak to. Sounds like a great way to have some fun and get the city back in check at the same time and i'm sure WLEC will get plenty of sponcers, once it starts rolling. Also i'm sure it would produce the most hits on the blog pages. Hey Nick, this might be just what you need to impress Matt AND HIS BOSS AS THE NEW KID ON THE BLOCK!!

Chris Redfern should review the comments made on the recent stories about Sharrod Brown. There were few negative comments on him. Maybe Redfern should look in the mirror and see why he is getting negative comments. If this forum is putting pressure on him to be a better representative of the people, all the better. The SR is just making it a bit more difficult for elected officials to be bad characters. And, I say to the SR, keep up the good work!

After battling incontinence while reading comments under Spirit Searchers...IMO..it's not even close. tt is #1.

Thanks for stickin by me and with me.

It is the voters who need to change and stop electing career politicians. When someone has not held a real job for most of their working lifetime, there is a greater chance that such a career politician will not best relate to what is taking place in the "real" world. That may also explain the "special treatment" expected by career politicians such a Redfern when he leaned on the SR not once, but twice over the same blog. Voters need to wise up and elect people who can better represent their interests. Blogging is here to stay and thanks to the SR and Matt Westerhold voters now have a voice!

THE DOWNFALL OF THE OHIO DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS CHRIS REDFERN. HE'LL TAKE TOMMY "DO NOTHING" FERRELL DOWN WITH HIM, AND PROBABLY BARACK OBAMA IN OHIO AS WELL. THE TABLE IS SET FOR THE DEMOCRATS TO WIN THIS YEAR. HOWEVER WITH THE PUBLIC'S HATRED OF "CRY BABY" REDFERN, I'M AFRAID THE DEMS HAVE AGAIN SHOT THEMSELVES IN THE FOOT.

STRICKLAND HASN'T FIGURED OUT YET HOW BADLY REDFERN IS SEEN BY OTHERS.

Hey Chris how is your picnic table doing?

TT

Appreciate the tip of the hat there, Dr. As I come to know you, at least through real study of your situation, I'm glad I was able to have my mind changed about you. You're one brave lady. Apparently my religiosity is under question by people that have never heard the foundations of their homes settle at night (hence the "bumps"). I'm as Cathy-lick as ever, and I know that any ghost besides that which is Holy doesn't exist. The best part is that even that God tells me that this is so, I know if from pure sense anyway - God hates fools, and really doesn't like people trying to disturb the souls of the dead. If you believe in God, you wouldn't believe in regular ghosts anyway!

to report abuse. The post on here at 2:10 by Erie County Watch Dog is bull crap. Take it off Matty boy. Or since it is against a Democrat it's ok?? Or do you have to check with Phares before you do something???

Imagine if all Bill Clinton or John Kerry had to do to get people (or the mainstream media) from making comments about their spouses was to call the editor and cry. Most people would call fair comments about elected officials' spouses fair game - especially when those spouses represent an industry that is paid to interfere in the relationship between elected officials and the constituents they represent.

If comments are vulgar and pointless, that's one thing. But if people are questioning how the head of the Democratic party and and an elected official balances being married to a lobbyist, I think that's a fair and decent question.

And one that deserves discussion.

tt: ‘If you believe in God, you wouldn't believe in regular ghosts anyway!’

It’s pure superstition no matter how you care to slice and dice it.

discuss it jerkwad but show a little respect for an elected official. I 'll say it again you guys are just jealous of Redfern jealous that he is succesful and jealous that he has things like you morons don't... brains and a life. The remark about him and the picnic table is ridiculous. It should be deleted. This blog should be run like JJ Huddle is. The Huddle is constantly monitored by administrators and if you break the rules that are set up you are off.....forever!!!!
