  • "JackSquat... I can see why you picked your screen name as you apparently spit in the face of ALL people that work the night shift that interrupts there circadian sleep ryhthyms. It is great that you are personally aware of the sleeping officer's contribution to society off duty and unfortunate personal life experiences. I would stand up for a friend in the same circumstances. BUT you site low pay (maybe over $100K, sadly we will never know due to confidentiallity laws), shoot the messenger that took the ACTUAL video of the officer stating "I have to rest" and you stated " but if we lost our kids, would we ever be ready?" WTF! are you spewing about? What if me or my family is in dire danger and I call 911 and they are sleeping? What if I go to the emergency room and they are sleeping? What if you are on military guard duty and sleeping! What if... anybody that WORKS the night shift gets a PASS because you think it's OK! The officer was caught in a SEVERE dereliction of duty and your twisted rationalization of the facts prove that you don't know JACK SQUAT!"

  • "Highest Integrity......LMAO!!!!!! People with the highest integrity don't create nor invite questionable situations...let alone married one's. Husband should replace that Pacemaker with a "where are you now" tracking device. They were screwing around and If they weren't why would they set up themselves to make it look that way? Both involved Are stupid idiots! Good Job Julie!"

  • "Panflash- I respect your opinion and you are right, it could have been someone with a gun instead of a camera, but it wasn't. We all pay taxes, but nobody honestly gives a crap where it goes until something like this happens. I think we all know what low pay police officers earn for risking their lives everyday and I wouldn't do it! Yes, if he was sleeping, he shouldn't have been, but he could have just been resting his eyes for a minute and unfortunately, this video doesn't prove for certain he was asleep. Its unknown what action the department took in reference to his emotional standing. Hopefully they made sure he was ready for duty, but if we lost our kids, would we ever be ready? I think we should point out the lies told by the camera man. He told KSBY that he and a friend were driving around trying to find officers ticketing the homeless,but during the video he told the officer that he was delivering newspapers. He's a newspaper delivery driver that stumbled on an opportunity to try and power his campaign for mayor. If this guy is running for mayor, I hope he has more then just newspaper delivery boy in his employment background!"

  • "Nice job in offering the facts and evidence Julie. Let me offer a bit of levity about this whole sorrid mess which was brought on by some unethical officials. Remember Ricky Nelson’s 1980s song Garden Party? I could not help but tweek the lyrics a bit to help us understand our city disaster. I linked the youtube below so you can sing along with the revised lyrics Went to the rooster tavern, to reminisce with my old friends A chance to share old memories, sip vintage wine again When we got to the rooster tavern, they all knew our names No one raised an eyebrow, about my city hall dame But it's all right now, I learned my lesson well You see, ya can't please everyone, so ya got to please yourself And people came from miles around, everyone was there Roberts was wearing his orange suit, there was magic in the air An' over in the corner, much to my surprise Someone hiding behind a barstool, waiting to tell some lies But it's all right now, I learned my lesson well You see, ya can't please everyone, so ya got to please yourself We headed back to city hall, the place from where we came after three good glasses of wine, we didn't look the same I said how bout we sober up and drink some herbal tea She said let me call my husband, I think he’s waitin up for me But it's all right now, I learned my lesson well You see, ya can't please everyone, so ya got to please yourself Someone opened up the city hall door and in stepped Johnny Law Oh such an “uncomfortable situation”, wonder what he saw? We worried about our future, would our manager jobs get cut the mayor told us not to worry, the council will cover your butt. But it's all right now, I learned my lesson well You see, ya can't please everyone, so ya got to please yourself An' it's all right now, yeah, learned my lesson well You see, ya can't please everyone, so you got to please yourself https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rFugRFKqjFg"

  • "1) Why not? Where other than your office would you go to hang out? 2) Why light up the building unnecessarily late at night just to hang out? 3) I do not believe there is "tea service" with set hours at City Hall. You make it yourself whenever you want. 4) Sure the building is alarmed, and employees have the code. The alarm is a "burglar" alarm. 5) That's her decision to do, nobody else's. 6) Because it was not expected to be subject to public "interpretation". 7) Yes, they were attending the same event as city representatives. 8) Who's "Carmen"? The opera by Bizet? 9) See #8 above. 10) Consistency of action."

  • "Ashbaugh ignores the rules and laws, say it isn’t so? He has always been such an upstanding citizen and professor at Cal Poly, wink – wink? No surprise here, if he and his cronies can line their pockets they will and anyone in the development community knows his pockets are always open."

  • "Well, given some of the bad advice that Dietrick has given the Council and resulting payouts for lawsuits, he could be justifiably mistrustful of her advice. However, I doubt that is the case as he has shown no inclination to break ranks with Marx/Lichtig/Dietrick before this. Which brings us back to the questions posed by Dexter (below)."

  • "As I mentioned before, I recently was at his place in Paso Robles, the food was so bad, you could hold it in the air and the grease dripped off it. When we mentioned it to our server she only said, "Gee, the chef doesn't usually cook it that way". We have no need to try his place in A.G.. The owner being a thief give makes it strike two and his prices make it 3 strikes and you are out."

  • "Wow! Great opine here Julie! Detailed and very well explained. Thank you. I'll bet it's hard in today's political environment to be a REAL truth seeker. Ephesians 6:10-18 reads; "10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.""

  • "Two of five council members have been ruled to have a conflict, and one more recused herself. Passing a law overruling the Airport Safety Zone boundary requires a four-fifths vote. What the F does Ashbaugh think he's doing? Four votes are still required, so there's no chance anything like this could even come up for a vote, unless disqualified councilmembers changed their status by selling off their property. I'm sure the developers could arrange such a purchase. Probably in escrow as we speak."

  • "If I had reason to believe your Mercedes had drugs in the trunk and I was caught breaking in don't you think the police would be interested in those drugs? Recall from the original Trib article, that illegal drugs were suspected in the attempted fraternity burglary. That's what I was basing my original comment on, the original reporting. I never claimed that the fraternity was at fault, merely that if drugs were suspected, then an investigation of the fraternity may be in order."

  • "A Leer jet crashed on The Dalidio plot about 20 years ago.That is right on the Instrument approach to the airport, and along the most common departure route. Not a good place for dense Residential, but since Grossman paid off Ashbaugh it is OK right?"
