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.

@ Old Friend,

Good to hear from you.

reader

Either way, if the charges are justified or not, this certainly brings into question the wisdom of those who hired the chief.....or the wisdom of those who are on a "witch hunt."

Common Sense

If you were truly only interested in those areas shared by every citizen, how many citizens requested the Sandusky Register to publish the CCW list? Also, I can personally attest for a number of citizens who still would like to know why the Register has not pursued items concerning the Perkins Police Department such as the investigation that was published a few short months ago and yet, no one has ever spoken about its resolution? If you have read or can archive past blogs, you will see that it is a common point in many threads concerning police departments or the trustees.

I am starting to think that Elsebeth isn't as crazy as people make her out to be. Things have been covered up much too long and someday the swat team will be all over this town, it is just a matter of time. The pot has been brewing for quite a while now and is ready to pop it's lid.

The SR poll asking how we feel about chief Nuesse being put on paid leave is not right. If two people live in a household and one votes already then the other person doesn't get the right to vote. This is not fair and does not reflect the true view of the people.

It's hard to talk from where I sit. Know that I read and investigate what you say as it relates to my position. Kim was doing what she was hired to do.

Why don't you get from behind the computer and go get the facts of this story. Inquiring minds want to know the details.

I told everyone that Matt knew something was going on. And all of you haters out there ought to give the man props on this one. Some of your stories are junk, Mr. Westerhold, but you called this shot.

Nuesse doesn't know what she is talking about. of course she is the chief cause now our law enforcement can only play patty cake with anyone who does anything wrong. You want to keep people out of jail give us a chief who can kick some a**. I am sure her lack of decision making will get her out of there soon enough!

Now is the time to get rid of Nuesse, for she has been trouble the first day she entered the Police department. All she thinks is about her. The media gueen, me me me I I I When she came in,the first thing she did is change all the cuys work schedule just to screw up their lives and it been down hill from then on. Send her butt back to Reynoldsburg where she came from.

Is chief Neusse getting too close to specific facts about Murray, Stahl, Crandal and the Marina and Chesapeake projects that these people thought they had well hidden?

It's time for the Register to step up and show if they are a legitimate investigative journalistic entity or part of "the old guard" trying to hide in the closet.

Very Racist thing to say.

If you had worded into "Street Language" and inferred that somehow an African American had talked like that, you would be without questioned called a Racist. Not all Italians are mobsters.

I demand the Register removes Cosa Nostra Don's comment IMMEDIATELY! I AM OFFENDED!

The ones that aren't deleted, anyway. By the way, many of us responed to your last blog - you may not remember it, it was so long ago. I digress: when can we expect your other-worldly answer to where some of those posts disappeared, or your undoubtedly amusing explanations as to what, if not deliberate deletion, befell them? I await your response, hoping you're not one of those paid "professionals" that works on a "whenever-I-feel-like-it" (or "whenever-I-can-get-back-the-nerve") basis.

You don't let anyone's personal information remain on the pages...huh...I don't know, the CCW list as published (if I remember correctly) only came with a name and a county, which was still too much, and I don't have any problems finding it on the website. Ooh, I get it, the "personal information" that was up there only happened to belong to one person! Right! Was it...MATT?!

TT

One more thing: the "much-needed" vacation? You wrote three blog entries before this, the last two of which were basically done for you. Was the three pages/week getting to you, or was it the realization that people don't seem to like you?

Why are you offended? Are you part of the mob? The Cosa Nostra are Italian and Sicilian but not all Italians are Cosa Nostra. You also have the Jewish mob, the Irish mob, the Russian mob and other mobs. Lighten up. Do you also complain when the Godfather movies are shown on TV? Racist? Nobody made fun of Italians here. Geeze, you just made invitations to crazy people to start posting Italian jokes and bashing Italians just like they did the gay people. Somebody posted that possibly there may be mob influence and you get your undies in a wad.

You're such a tool! Look everyone, there's n profanity here, but watch it gets deleted anyway!

Nick,

It has come to everyone's attention that you only have this job because you're daddy owns the paper. Care to address the situation? What are your qualifications exactly? And a masters in underwater basket weaving doesn't count. You're such a joke. Go back to New York you yuppie scum!

My new format looks like crap. It's impossile to find anything on me. Thanks for ruining a good thing Nick!

You look like Walter Peck, the bad guy from ghostbusters. Bill Murray called him a needle dick. You're probably a needle dick too, if you have one. Will you erase this post? Probably.

What a hypocrit.

Sandusky HATES YOU!!!!

You've ruined my favorite website (funcoast) and I hope you die!!!

Delete away, hyocrit, delete away!!!

TT

Ohh Niiiiiiiickkkk...I had 4 posts up here: 3 posts and a correction. You are the hypocrite of hypocrites. Put my posts back up please, especially if you're going to leave the others up. I expect to see them very soon, or perhaps I'll just rewrite them. Our whole paper is a sham, and you staffers are an embarassment to all kinds of real journalists and ALL honest people everywhere.

What is racist about it? I recall an old Alka Seltzer commercial on TV where an Italian guy is eating spicy meatballs and gets an upset stomach. The guy in the commercial said something to the effect of "Mama Mia, thatsa spicy meatballa". Maybe you are more upset because there may be mobsters doing business in Sandusky and you and Italian American want the post taken down because maybe it is really true. I wonder if you two are the same people that bash a known private person on the news blogs.

Here I go, you little pervert:

1.) Nick, from what were you taking a vacation from, your three-page/week op-ed job, or from the righteous ridicule you received for actually writing worse than your partner-in-Grime, Matt?

2.) Maybe you could have used that time to get a real degree, and could have left us alone to EARN a real job. That'd be work, though, right?

3.) You say personal information was deleted from the CCW list. Again, you are a liar. I can still find all the information published from the CCW lists - that's name and county - so who's personal information could have been deleted? Why, it could only have been your good buddy Matt's! Matt has often forgot that what goes around, comes around. Luckily, we, his adoring public, are around every corner to remind him - and we will do so to you as well.

4.) Do you SR op-ed jackals understand why you're the scourge of the entire community? It's because you wrap yourself in the concept of jounalistic integrity to protect yourself (unsuccessfully) from reproach from your thoroughly unethical and arguably illegal acts. We used to have a paper worth reading everyday, worth touting and good enough to make us all proud to be from this community. Now, thanks to you, Matt, Marie, and all the rest, it's half scandal-sheet and half propaganda rag. Are YOU proud?

Amazing, I no sooner posted my next comment and the one I had posted a minute before was gone! It contained no profanity, no libel, or anything. If you can't take the truth, you should go back to cowering and crying in the corner with Matt! I had 4 kosher posts earlier today: 3 originals, and one for a spelling correction (Matt, take note: when I misspell a word, or misspeak, instead of getting angry at other and ignoring the error, I CORRECT MY MISTAKE AND LEAVE IT AT THAT, glad for the increased wisdom.

TT

Where are my posts, Nick, you craven little coward? ALL of them...

Nick, Matt, put them back up.
