Over the years we’ve managed to get credentialed by The City of Twentynine Palms, Assembly members Cook and Conway’s Offices, the Board of Supervisors, State Senators Dutton and Fuller, Both US Senators Feinstein and Boxer, The Base PAO and about 20 other government agencies, including the main Public Affairs office of the San Bernardino Sheriffs Department and Riverside County Sheriff, but I can not get Cactus Thorns Credentialed with Captian Donny Miller of the Morongo Sheriffs Substation. Lord knows we’ve tried. Just a couple of months ago I was assured by Captain Miller himself I would be put on the email list and credentialed. It did not happen.
We appreciate the way we get the straight skinny from Mark Nuaimi, the Town Manager of Yucca Valley. Most every Town and City Council person posts or has commented on Cactus Thorns. Both the basin Mayors comment here. Water Boards and GPAC members alike have commented, but we still can’t get on the email list for the day to day law enforcement activity and press releases for the Morongo Station.
I know I’ve done my part with the Sheriff when it comes to holding up my end of the party line. Been given an ada boy badge since Sheriff Bland served. I’ve been recognized with Awards from the Sheriff himself.
Now mind you, in all the time I have written on this blog I have never said a single discouraging word about Captain Miller. I might have said a few things about his friends and cronies or his buddies over at the “in” crowd or fellow alumni on the Council of Twentynine Palms, but I don’t think something like that should stand in the way of disseminating important Law Enforcement information to the People through this web site.
So here you go, Captain Miller, I’d like to apologize if by some remote chance I have ever offended you or any of your friends. I think it is time we get to the task at hand and put Cactus Thorns on that email list so that our readers can be better informed citizens.
