Dear Commissioner Dennis Miller:

I am sorry that we have never had the opportunity to meet, but I wanted to take a moment to urge you to very carefully read the above captioned report. I hope you take the time to do that and question if this was indeed a fair and impartial investigation of the facts, or whether it followed the dictates of an agenda.

I also wanted to mention to you that I met a man at the city commission meeting on Thursday who shared with me his thoughts about this issue and others. He also mentioned he's lived in his home in the 1500 block of Shelby Street for 67 years and said there are eight vacant houses surrounding his home. I drove to his neighborhood earlier today, and sadly, it appears the information he gave me is exactly correct.

I wonder if the more than $40,000 spent so far on the Murman investigation and related expenses would have been better spent to protect our neighborhoods and secure our city's future.

Please feel free to call me anytime. There are a great many other concerns I have regarding this issue, and it would be nice to meet and talk with you about them. Thank you for taking the time to consider my request.

Sincerely,

Matt Westhover

I am fed up with ALL of the lying politicians! I am going broke paying for them. They don't follow the laws. They make wars for oil and drugs. They ship our jobs to Commie countries. McBama have been Senators for a while now and they don't fix our problems. McBama are bent on fulfilling Bush Sr's dream and making our government into a Commie New World Order and making us all live like Commies. McBama don't get my vote, no way!

Obamas Books, both exploit and promote racism and Anti-American notions. How can you defend his own words as being false claims?

I have problems not with his color but his ideology. He is a Socialist at heart and espouses the "redistribution of wealth". In his own words he told a Plumber in Michigan, when asked "why are you going to penalize me for being a small business"? OBAMA RESPONDED " I DON'T SEE IT AS PENALIZING YOU BUT A REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH".

What incentive does the Plumber have to work hard if it means having to give it to the gov't for redistribution to those who had NO PART in his sweat equity?

With 75-80% of businesses falling under the catagory of "Small business" with reciepts of $250,000 or more, how many of them do you think will be in business a year after OBAMA, if elected?

McCain and Obama are two side of the same coin, hence "McBama". The McCain and Obama campaigns are committed to more and bigger government. Both of them, not just one of them. McBama is the cause, not the solution.

How anyone could believe Bob Barr is the best candidate escapes me. He and his Libertine Party are phony from beginning to end. They could have picked Mary Ruwart but they picked Barr.

Sarah Palin is a real American. John McCain did right to choose her for his running mate. McCain showed he can do right when he picked her. The women of America can be proud for the next 4 years.

Lets talk about another friend of Obama's named Odinga of Kenya and attrocities he was involved with rather than a bad trooper that should have been fired anyway. Odinga incites violence when he had a legitimate loss and used genocide to force a power sharing situation in Kenya. Odinga claims he is Obama's cousin so its no wonder Barack Obama has donated $1mil to his campaign. Odinga has hitched up his politics with extremist muslims to shore up his appeal. Bad company, why associate with this type of trash when there are 6 billion other people in the world. Dont let the liberal thugocracy shut you down with their intimidation and race baiting.

I voted for Ross Perot in 1992 because I was PO'd at both parties. We ended up with Clinton for 8 years. The other 4 candidates do not have a snowballs chance to make it to the podium. My vote in 1992 was a costly referendum vote. I am an Independent but will not throw away my vote again.

I cant afford OBAMA!

Fact remains that one can always tell when a lawyer like Obama is lying....watch is lips, if he is speaking he is lying!!

One way to tell when a journalist is showing a strong bias is to make an opinion read like a fact when if fact there are no reporter facts, only reporter opinions....just look at the way this article begins, seemingly like a fact that reports the journalistic bias of an opinion page!!!

Got to hand it to this editor for saying so much with so few words....and to think that the city would not be in this situation with Nuesse if the GOBs had not run her out on a rail and now they are being taken to task and must now demonstrate how they can twist in the breeze.

No doubt all of the testimony will be used by Nuesse when she files her lawsuit in Federal Court in Toledo...

Anonymous

She can take this to any Federal Court she wants. The fact of the matter is this hearing will show that she is a liar, unable to work with others, was self serving and the city won't have to pay a dime.

Oh come on already. Baxter is the biggest crook around and everybody and their brother knows it. Just like everybody and their brother knows the reason nobody ever runs against him is because it's a fixed deal. And you're talking about this fired police chief's ethics making her a poor choice of a leader? Give it a rest already. That woman was railroaded and everybody and their brother knows it. You say that Mr. Westerhold has been very biased on his reportings of Ms. Nuesse? I don't believe this. Suffice to say it was the other way around. And just for the record I do not live in Erie County and believe you me I never would!

I will repost the prior post so that the palyers in the kids case is closer to the top..I am real tired..

Thank you all...These kids deserved better then this from the system.

I KNEW THEM WHEN wrote on Sep 18, 2008 9:55 AM:

" The Judge in the case was Tygh M. Tone
Magistrate Patrick Quinn.

No the person died of cancer at hospice center. Stayed at home in Huron until placed in facillaty 2 days prior to death. Will was signed 2 weeks prior to death.

Care giver live in girl friend of 1 year, was convicted of and on probation for taking pain medications from people in her care.

Will left Gallaway as the trustee of trust. And this care giver as executor of estate will full reign and control of the deceased home and all personal properity for 10 years and allowed care giver to dispose of any and all of personal property. IE motercycles, cars, boats, antiques, famly herlooms, ect ect.

I have allways felt so bad for these kids! they were done wrong by this woman before by keeping them away from their loved one then finished off anything they had of "family". "

Anonymous

the kids hired Murrey office for representation.
Murray wouldn't let them go after galloway and fact of wrong will. Murray did take quite a bit of money and even took phone tapes the son had proving that the womantold people of her plan to get him out of his home.
The tapes dissappeared...the Murray never did much and then they were given to another lady atty in office and had to start over, Since both kids are out of town...1 out of state. I'm sure Erie co. thought it would all just go away. Weel they perseviered and had to pay another good chunk of change to the law firm. New lady lawyer gets GF inot office to give deposition. Kids had to pay big bucks for that. The kids then were told again that We're going after her falure to handle estate as will states. They get court date. Judge rulled no evidence would be permissable. Said druggie woman had the right to do what she wanted and they'd split what was left of house only after a 10 year period. as per will. I must tell you here he had more in assets then in his home. The judge then told the kids their only recourse was to go to a mediator and...guess what pay again!
I guess they got their wish. THe son lost his good paying job because of all the time off and is to this day unemployed. The stress on the single young mom has caused her into major depression....THis is just not right!
Both of these young adults grew up in that house. They are now both homeless practically depending on others for help. And this woman walks.....
And GAlloway? What are you getting out of this? A cut? Do you continue to get paid to be in charge of the trust?
And what exactly was the reason again that the dad decided to change lawyers after using the same one for years? per Galloway and drug gf. he gave the man a family airloom car then turned around and got pi**ed off at that lawyer within a couple of months?

Uggggg Here I go again... wonder if I can sue for duress?

Hahaha pss the kids also have an older half sister that is in law inforcement in Palm Beach FL. She was never notified even of the will reading..as were neither of these 2 kids they had to go ask and pay for a copy. Then when kids took it to court she wasn't notified about that either although she wasn't added to the kids side...

I posted quotes from Obama's books with and without personal commentary 5 times on this blog and each time they were removed.

That would suggest to me that freedom of speech, which the RAGister so vehemently espouses, only works if you believe in double-standards.

You have once again proven fairness and balance are not within the RAGister bill of rights; except where convenient for them and their agenda.

Just when I think Sandusky could not get any worse or any more embarrassing it does. They bar the press from reporting on what has to be the biggest joke of the century---an expensive pretense of a trial complete with a pretend judge and a bunch of grown men whining about their ex-boss and why she should have been fired. Sandusky is done, washed up, kaput. Call Chief Justice Moyer and thank him for its decay and then make plans to get out. Let the GOBs and Moyer have it.

WOULDN'T IT BE GREAT TO TURN ON THE TV AND HEAR ANY U.S. PRESIDENT, DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN GIVE THE FOLLOWING SPEECH?
'My Fellow Americans: As you all know, the defeat of the Iraq regime has been completed.

Since Congress does not want to spend any more money on this war, our mission in Iraq is complete.

This morning I gave the order for a complete removal of all American forces from Iraq This action will be complete within 30 days. It i s now time to begin the reckoning.

Before me, I have two lists. One list contains the names of countries which have stood by our side during the Iraq conflict. This list is short. The United Kingdom, Spain, Bulgaria, Australia , and Poland are some of the countries listed there.

The other list contains every one not on the first list. Most of the world's nations are on that list. My press secretary will be distributing copies of both lists later this evening.

Let me start by saying that effective immediately, foreign aid to those nations on List 2 ceases immediately and indefinitely. The money saved during the first year alone will pretty much pay for the costs of the Iraqi war. THEN EVERY YEAR THERE AFTER IT'll GO TO OUR SOCIAL SECURITY SYSTEM SO IT WONT GO BROK E IN 20 YEARS.

The American people are no longer going to pour money into third world Hell holes and watch those government leaders grow fat on corruption.

Need help with a famine? Wrestling with an epidemic? Call France .

In the future, together with Congress, I will work to redirect this money toward solving the vexing social problems we still have at home. On that note, a word to terrorist organizations. Screw with us and we will hunt you down and eliminate you and all your friends from the face of the earth.

Thirsting for a gutsy country to terrorize? Try France or maybe China

I am ordering the immediate severing of diplomatic relations with Fra nce, Germany, and Russia. Thanks for all your help, comrades. We are retiring from NATO as well. Bonne chance, mes amies.

I have instructed the Mayor of New York City to begin towing the many UN diplomatic vehicles located in Manhattan with more than two unpaid parking tickets to sites where those vehicles will be stripped, shredded and crushed. I don't care about whatever treaty pertains to this. You creeps have tens of thousands of unpaid tickets. Pay those tickets tomorrow or watch your precious Benzes, Beamers and limos be turned over to some of the finest chop shops in the world. I love New York.

A special note to our neighbors. Canada is on List 2. Since we are likely to be seeing a lot more of each other, you folks might want to try not pissing us off for a change.

Mexico is also on List 2 its president and his entire corrupt government really need an attitude adjustment. I will have a couple extra thousand tanks and infantry divisions sitting around. Guess where I am going to put 'em? Yep, border security.

Oh, by the way, the United States is abrogating the NAFTA treaty - starting now.

We are tired of the one-way highway.
Im mediately, we'll be drilling for oil in Alaska- which will take care of this country's oil needs for decades to come. If you're an environmentalist who opposes this decision, I refer you to List 2 above: pick a country and move there.

It is time for America to focus on its own welfare and its own citizens. Some will accuse us of isolationism. I answer them by saying, 'darn tootin.'

Nearly a century of trying to help folks live a decent life around the world has only earned us the undying enmity of just about everyone on the planet. It is time to eliminate hunger in America It is time to eliminate homelessness in America. To the nations on List 1, a final thought. Thank you guys. We owe you and we won't forget.

To the nations on List 2, a final thought: You might want to learn to speak Arabic.

God bless America .. Thank you and good night.'

If you can read this, thank a teacher. If you are reading it in English, thank a soldier.

Matt,
Keep up the good work in bringing out the truth. A lot of us are counting on you as we as citizens do not have the clout such as a newspaper to expose corruption. Many of us tried to expose the truth and bring transparency back into government and the court system. But we have been stonewalled for years because nobody wants to help. It appears that almost all of the crooks are Democrats. And Democrats protect Democrats. It would be nice to start up a "grass roots" organization for citizens demanding change to the status quo.

A newspaper was responsible for exposing Nixon and his GOBs. Matt, like Woodward and Bernstein, is working to expose corruption in our area. The Plain Dealer is reporting all that is going on with the continuing FBI raids in Cuyahoga County, the PD is NOT "sweeping it under the rug" like they did in the past. It is informing people what is REALLY going on in Cleveland and the surrounding areas. The Plain Dealer and its affiliated online websites is posting news that should have been reported years ago.

It's about time that newspapers begin to keep the citizens informed about the TRUTH. In the past, politicians and GOBs used the newspapers to spread lies, rumors, misinformation and other BS to keep the people in the dark. They (GOBs) used the newspaper and news media to discredit people and whistleblowers who dared to stand up against the crooks. Looks to me like the newspapers are getting their act together and will no longer print the propaganda of the GOBs.
Recall Chris Redfern when he admonished Matt a few months ago for "being cute" because Matt will not allow the politicians and GOBs to control what gets printed or not reported or printed. Where has Chris Redfern been lately? He sure has been quiet since the FBI raided Cleveland. The GOBs object to anything that Matt prints now because the GOBS want to keep secrets. Not reporting what is really happening will only keep the citizens uninformed. The GOBs want everything to be a secret and make people believe that everything is just fine and dandy. Well, those days are coming to an end.

Watergate was exposed because two reporters from the Washington Post went on to report the TRUTH and to inform the people. Nixon wanted to keep things under wraps but in the end, the TRUTH prevailed.

Matt, once again, KUDOS to you and keep up the good work. If the GOBs threaten you, let us the citizens know. When you were not allowed to attend that "closed door meeting," you told us about it and kept us informed. You could have just as easily said nothing and the citizens would not have known a thing. That is what the GOBs wanted because they only work in the veil of secrecy and behind closed doors or in the dark.

Margaret Cannon is from Cuyahoga County? That figures and explains a lot of things. Did you know that just the other day, there was another FBI raid in Cuyahoga County that involved 100 agents? The corruption of Cuyahoga County has long tentacles that control what happens in Erie and Ottawa Counties.

Looking back, Elsebeth made a lot of sense now. The GOBs through newspapers, including the Sandusky Register, Port Clinton News-Herald and even the Plain Dealer spread a lot of lies about Elsebeth. The GOBs used the newspapers to spread a lot of lies and misinformation about Elsebeth and others. The reason was to poison the minds of citizens and to control the peoples opinions about whistleblowers who attempt to expose corruption.

I see that the Plain Dealer will no longer cater to the GOBs to spread lies and propaganda. People in Cuyahoga County are becoming informed and corruption is being exposed for a change. And now Matt, through the Sandusky Register, is exposing corruption. But the Port Clinton News-Herald still prefers to cater to the GOBs from what I have seen and read. I have heard that many people in Port Clinton dropped the News-Herald and are now subscribing to the Sandusky Register.

I am looking for the FBI to raid the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's office soon. All those involved in the corruption are Democrats and Democrats control what happens in Cuyahoga. I had thought about voting for Obama but will not because Obama will call off the FBI investigations. I will vote for McCain instead. I see where one lawyer in Cuyahoga was a state senator, ran for congress but was convicted of extorting money from businesses. He was not disbarred like he should have been. Instead he recently ran for Tubbs Jones vacated seat. Wow, only in Cuyahoga County. And now Cuyahoga County GOBs have their hands in the Nuesse hearings.

And the GOBs of Erie County and Sandusky? They cannot use the Sandusky Register as their propaganda machine. So they all banned together here on the news blobs to attack Matt, the Sandusky Register and keep spreading lies to anyone stupid enough to believe them.

Matt, thank you for what you are doing. It's the right thing to do.

Now Matt knows how Libertarian presidential candidate Bob Barr feels having been barred from the presidential debates. Not only was Barr barred, but Green Party candidate Cynthia McKinney was barred too - and she's an African-American female! It seems there's no discrimination when it comes to barring. McBama also barred Constitution Party candidate Chuck Baldwin and Socialist Party candidate Brian Moore. Even independent candidate Rauf Nader was barred.

Barring has been going for a long time, as far back as 1980 when Libertarian candidate Ed Clark was barred by Carter and Reagan. And recently, the Republican National Convention at Minneapolis barred Republican challenger Ron Paul of Texas because they like McCain and didn't want the public to hear Ron Paul. See www.RonPaul.org for the truth of how the crooks are putting it to us.

When someone gets barred, that means the crooks want to keep the truth from getting out. That's why the debates barred all of the candidates for president except McBama. And keeping a lid on the truth is why Matt Westerhold was barred from the hearing.

McCain and Palin are consummate liars. They tell so many lies that they no longer can remember what actually happened - they only remember their lies. Rolling Stone magazine had a good article on the many bald-faced lies these two have been telling.

I'm sick of lies. Bob Barr is not a liar. He says his CIA spy days are over. Barr says the Patriot Act was a mistake. Barr says he has woke up and smells the neocons. Vote Libertarian while you still can.

After 3 debates where only 2 out of 7 candidates were invited, we now see that McBama are two sides of the same coin. We heard "Bail Out", "Bail Out" the rich crooks on Wall Street. McBama is not a choice.

Bob Barr, the Libertarian Party candidate for President, is the true conservative choice for President; not John McCain who votes like a Socialist. McCain got an F rating from Gun Owners of America and Barr got an A+.

I don't see how the Ron Paul voters will be able to live themselves if they were to cast a vote for McCain or Obama. I predict Bob Barr will edge out John McCain, making it a close race between Barr and Obama. www.BobBarr2008.com

Tom, She might be our Vice-President or President. Why not give her a pass if she says sorry. We should overlook everything; she so cute. Wink! I think McCain tried to wink in the last debate. Not Pretty! With all those "got ya" questions like what newspaper you read. Are you under her spell? Are starburst shooting throw your living room. If so. Wake up. In every area The Obama ticket is better and that is not just me saying that; check with the CBO. McCain's plan cost 7 trillion his first term; Obama's plan cost 4 trillion. And on top of Palin conspiring; her pastor wanted Alaska to leave the sovereignty of America or in other words leave America. I guess Palin means Alaska when she says "country first". Can we get this mre reporting on this topic, please. I have said from the start that this is the Press's fault because the haven't keep America imformed. You say the info. is out there. Yes, but it is will hiden. The Facts Please.

You’re so quick to try and demean and belittle Charlie Sams. You're quite a man Matt! It really takes quite an intellect to cut another down with verbal assaults. I'll bet you feel REAL big!!!
Where were you when Sams was involved in a serious injury accident, attempting to stop a fleeing motorist? Where were you and you’re fabulous reporting when he had to enter a house filled with natural gas? The doorway blocked by a suicidal man wielding a butcher knife at him, to keep that man from blowing up his home with his children in it. Where were you when he was working the street on the task force, and was almost cut up by a crack addict on Pearl Street?
I'm not going to sit here and tell you he is perfect, because he isn't. Trust me, he does have his faults. He’s a man like any other, but I'll say this for him. At times he's put his butt on the line, and that’s more than anyone will ever be able to say for a pencil pushing Remington Raider like you. Go peddle your personal propaganda somewhere else, because as far as I'm concerned you’re not any better than that laying former chief you so 'valiantly defend'.

Censorship has turned in to No rights to free speech. I remember see individuals bring dragged out of Bush Events because they had anti-Bush shirts on.

WHAT????? Matt is exposing WHAT???? All he has written is how Charlie Sams looks like celebrites, is this the great "truth" he has uncovered?? You really need to get out more!! Are you a relative of Matt's?? Who with half a brain would leave such a post, based on this column?? Matt is spineless, he is a coward and the only thing he offers to his fellow man is.....well nothing!!! Yet he sits on his perch and casts dispersions on officers who put their lives on the line every day to protect nobodys like him. How can anyone, who isnt some kind of a cop hater, like this loser?? Matt, have you done ANYTHING that would warrant someone thinking youre something special?? I am guessing not. Turn off the computer, turn off the light at your cubicle and get out and do....SOMETHING Matt....

Considering how OFFENDED some of you people were over the fact that Mr. Sams looks like Tommy Smothers (so?) you sure are capable of making some very demeaning and belittling attacks upon Mr. Westerhold.........I believe there's a word for that.

You know, that is what makes me so sick about the Nuesse/Westerhold supporter's. You all can go on and on and on about everybody in this city blog after blog after blog but as soon as anyone makes a comment on their opinion that differs from all of yours....you get BENT! You people are pathetic. Don't get too bent...nothing to worry about, Westerhold deletes all of the comments against he and Nuesse so it looks like eveyone sides with him. Don't worry....Be Happy.

Will was signed two weeks prior to his death-----now what Judge with any common sense would not question that obvious criminal act?
Will left Galloway the trustee of trust----now who in the he*l would be stupid enough to believe that criminal act?
Murray would not let them go after Galloway? (the little boys protecting their attorney brothers)
The kids had to go and ask and pay for a copy of their own father's Will? Are you saying they were never NOTIFIED BY CERTIFIED MAIL that a Will had been filed? (Illegal)
The Judge ruled that no evidence was permissable? I would have to say what the Judge ruled was unfair, dishonest, biased and ILLEGAL.
Judge Ty Tone was the Judge that ruled on this? That's odd----I thought McGookey only used Cuyahoga County judges and Binette to FIX cases pertaining to fraud and criminal acts perpetrated by ATTORNEYS in Probate.

Biased? Sure! Everyone is biased---that's human nature. But as a prosecutor or a judge, if you want to be perceived as a professional, you have to put your bias aside. And the bias in this city, county and throughout the Ohio Court systems is disgusting and blatant...

Okay, sounds like someone is having a Hissy! Just exactly what don't you get and what's it gonna take for you to get it, one of those flying 10# pcs. of metal? It isn't a question of picking sides, Mattie/Nuessie, the City/SPD, or being what some refer to as a "Cop Hater". It's about the absolute look of impropriety that surrounds this matter, as well as past, and now even more present situations. You are mistaken if you think this all just came about, with no reason at all. What slays my soul, is how the Anti-Nuessie/Mattie bloggers can rant and rave, say the most vile things about this woman, or man, yet cry foul when a few pounds of your own medicine is given back. Just read of a few of the posts, they're not to flattering towards Mr. Westerhold or Nuesse, and they're still up. See, that's why I don't call names, I just state personal opinions from personal experience. Now, you wanna call me a liar, go right ahead. You wanna call me a Nuessie/Mattie supporter, go ahead. Just keep in mind, if you're going to get into or already are in the field of public service, be you a politician, judge, police officer, fire-fighter, etc., there really is a thing called a Code of Ethics to follow and it's there for a reason. If you can't do that, you don't deserve the trust of the public, let alone your postion. Pretty simple, if ya ask me!

Where is Buff, Buff Fan, Buff Fan 2, Buff Fan 4, Buff Fan 5, Buff Fan 19, Grace, al, Ms. Supreme, other Buff Fans and the others that were constantly attacking Elsebeth on these news boards?

I see that some are referring to Matt as "spineless" "coward" and other names.
Matt has his photo posted and has his full name on his blog. Elsebeth used her real name as did her family members. But anonymous posters slammed Elsebeth and her family. Now, they are slamming Matt.

Personally, I think that Matt is very courageous and has a strong backbone to state what he believes in. I didn't care for Matt when he published that CCW permit list but I have forgiven him since he began to uncover the truth and expose the GOBS. I don't always agree with Matt but I respect him.

Back to my original question. Where is Buff and his fans? They are still here using other names. Now, they are attacking Matt and anyone who supports Matt in exposing what really is. Buff in reality is a GOB as are his cronies.
I wonder what those 10 lawyers at the prosecutor's office do all day? What does Icsman do all day?

Trust has paid the girl frind over 5,000.00 Is this common? If she loved him as she stated and they were to get married...but never did...then why pay her for taking everything these kids have and living in the house for free for 10 years then getting a third of it and forcing the sale?

I wish there was a way I could get in touch with you all in private so that maybe we could all just show up in court with these kids!

Just having witnesses may help hugh?

The young man has Appealed to Matt in a private e mail to Please come with him to court to just watch!

The kids say they were aware there would be one more hearing...of which now they have no funds to go into with a lawyer presenting them.

Maybe the Club didn't think they need to go that far away to get over on this one? After all who in their right mond would accuse any atty of wrong doing? Who has enough money to stand up to them? The thing that urked them the most is this woman whom was obviously convicted of taking her patients drugs and on probation for it at the time she hooked their father. A man that just didn't want to die alone?
This woman hid things from appr.
they listed in the trust that the estate had 11,400.00 in household goods. It also failed to list a new Harley Davidson the father had ordered and paid for 2 years before died. or the other motor cycles that he did own.
This woman then commenced to Sell every thing in this mans home giving the kids just a few momentos of their father and their entire family history that was in that house for more then one generation. The Judge said it was ok she did what she wanted with it all because it was in the will.

If this wasn't Rape then I don't know what it was!

Who in their right mind would accuse an attorney of wrongdoing? I know somebody that did. The best thing about it is the person has all the proof because it's a matter of public record (filed by the attorneys themselves who never thought their filings were going to be found) The worst thing about it is---the Erie County Probate Court. Figure it out. The case you are talking about is by far not the only one....
If you need somebody to go to Court as a witness to watch the play in action I know of several people that would be more than willing......

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.....

When Murray turned the case over to another attorney in his firm was this done with the consent of his clients? Did they sign papers giving their consent? Who was the attorney the father had for years before changing attorneys? You say the father lived in Huron. Was his attorney from Huron, too? I didn't know that an attorney could be the trustee of a trust. Very interesting. If a differant will was drafted up who was the attorney? Who were the witnesses to the new will? Are they certain the will was signed by the father? The attorney (trustee of the trust) sure did line his pockets, didn't he? Thank you.

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.

The three main candidates - McCain, Obama and Barr (M.O.B.) - have little difference on warrantless surveillance. When former CIA official Bob Barr was in Congress, he voted for the Patriot Act that authorized warrantless spying and he helped to write it. Worse, Barack Obama voted in support of it back in July. But John McCain didn't think a Congressional vote was required for the NSA to listen to these calls. Is that a difference?

Thank God for Demopublican party and the Libertarian Party who now seeks to act just like them (sarcasm intended).

We can't rely on the M.O.B. for change. The M.O.B. is not a choice.

Cynthia McKinney, the Green Party candidate, is the African-American candidate that the M.O.B. and their friends in high places don't want you, the voter, to hear about. She gave Bush and his New World Order nothing but fits when she was in Congress, always voting against him. McKinney is a choice, the M.O.B. is not.

I can prove that Erie County not only uses Cuyahoga County judges to FIX cases in Cuyahoga County pertaining to Erie County Probate Estates, I can also prove that crook Cuyahoga County attorneys FIX cases in the Erie County COMMON PLEAS COURT pertaining to FRAUDULENTLY TRANSFERRED property that belonged in an Erie County PROBATE estate. I can even prove that the crook Cuyahoga County attorney pulled off the FIX on behalf of a NON-CLIENT and even requested his attorney fees be taken out of the sale of property on behalf of a NON-CLIENT.

It's illegal for an attorney to WITHDRAW from a case with forseeable prejudice to his client/clients without DUE NOTICE and following all applicable laws, such as turning over ALL FILES in the case to the client/clients.
It's also illegal for an attorney to turn a case over to another attorney IN THE SAME LAW FIRM without the WRITTEN CONSENT of all clients.
I don't know how in the hel* your attorney ever got away with giving your case to a totally different law firm but if this was done in ERIE COUNTY nothing surprises me. In this county attorneys do anything they want---out of town attorneys even get away with filing Oral Motions and fraud preliminary judicial reports on behalf of people they DON'T EVEN REPRESENT and the Court KNOWS it!

To all of you who support Matt so veamently, I would just like to ask, "what has he really exposed"? Has he had anyone indited? Have there been any charges filed as a result of his "investigative reporting". Has he managed to bring 'justice' to ANY criminal or civil case in the area whatsoever? If you can document that for me, then please, BRING IT ON!!! From my understanding when he was informed of the fact that he would be called as a witness in the Nuesse trial, he threw a child like fit. Why?, if he is so interested in justice for this woman, and has so much to offer information wise would he act this way? It would appear that he dos'nt really have information, but just wants to feed on it. Well, if you supporters find ANYTHING that I have asked for, please, enlighten us ALL would you?

ONE question only, one small question and I want an answer since all of my other past questions were IGNORED previously.

The other news story says that Matt was booted out of the hearings. According to Matt, "The city's attorney asked Judge Joseph Cirigliano if I could be added to their witness list."

My question is: WHY didn't the city's attorney add Matt to the witness list BEFORE the hearings started? WHY did they add Matt to the list after they saw Matt at the hearings? It sure looks suspicious.

It certainly looks like the city's attorney puposely had Matt thrown out to keep quiet what goes on in the SECRET hearings.

The other "witnesses" like Sams, Frost and others will not be present either.
But recordings will be made of the hearings so all of the "witnesses" can hear all that went on in the hearings. That is why all of those multiple dates for the hearings were chosen.
The GOBs, I mean the witnesses for the city, will them get together to review all of the recordings so that they can all rehearse to keep their stories straight. The city witnesses will know everything that went on in the hearings because of the recordings.

It is all being pre-planned with the recordings and the multiple hearing dates well into next year after the elections. The GOBs are making sure that Obama, a fellow democrat, will be elected.

In the end, the GOBs and city witnesses will have this all orchestrated so they all keep their stories straight and they will not call Matt to testify after all. I let the cat out of the bag. Will the GOB strategy change again?

I will NOT be voting for any Democrats. It seems like all of these GOBs are also Democrats.

To those of you who think this has the GOBs scared, think again! This is laughable. We all laugh as Kim gets what she deserves -- it appears karma has caught up with you!

I'm really surprised that Kim is even getting to attend these hearings. Wasn't the baliff suppose to come out and give all the gob attorneys a signal so they could jump up and run into the hearing leaving Kim out in the waiting room? That's the usual way they handle FIXED CASES in Erie County. That's the way they handle them in Cuyahoga County too when Cuyahoga County judges are FIXING PROBATE CASES for Erie County. I guess this case is too well known for them to pull off their usual........

Mr. Jackson, you made an excellent point. Libraries contend they buy books based also on patron’s requests and suggestions. Sandusky, Huron and Port Clinton patrons should start E-mailing/calling their respective libraries with "Aisha" as a purchase suggestion.

Books are not banned in the US. They are though in communist countries--like China, Korea and Cuba. The ALA creates the false perception that the US "bans" or "censors" books. Libraries commemorate this false event by displaying the books the ALA claims have been "banned" or "censored"! If they were, how could the books be displayed publicly in a library?!

In these articles concerning Nuesse/Westerhold, that you sure better be one of their fans because if you are not you get ATTACKED. Looks to me like it is all the same people writing over and over for Nuesse/ Westerhold. That is all there is here are the supporters. Watch out if you come along and are not and give your opinion because you will be deleted or told off. No wonder most of the anti don't even bother with any of this, they are the smart ones. I am sure if anyone goes back through the hundreds of Nuesse/Westerhold blogs it is all very noticable. Have fun all by yourself all of you supporter's. If you chase everyone away who in the heck will you argue with? I am sure you will still argue with yourselves. Have fun, nighty night.

Books are bought by libraries based on patrons' requests or based on whether people would actually check out the book in question. There are plenty of books that local libraries, such as Sandusky Library, don't have and that more urban libraries do have; this is not because they don't carry 'banned' or controversial books, but because they are small libraries which won't randomly buy books that no one will read. I bet if enough people wanted to read "Aisha", the local libraries would buy it.
In addition, you could simply order the book through Clevnet and pick it up at your local library. Certainly local libraries don't censor the books their patrons read; it's bad for business.

If Kim knew then what she knows now, I'm thinking she never would have applied for the Chief's job.
