seeking permission to expand. Unfortunately, his business requires heavy trucks,
cranes and other loud and obtrusive equipment to rumble over our residential
streets and roads and thru our quiet neighborhood.
Nobody else in this neighborhood is being allowed to run a huge operation from
their house. The Hardesty’s pay rent and run their business from town like the
good neighbors and citizens they are.
EXAMPLE and rent an appropriate space from which to run his business. Come
to the hearing and put in your TWO CENTS.

    I’d like to know the name of the person that posted this so called press release? Dear poster, please identify yourself or your organization. This looks like a hoax. No one wants to show up to a so called public hearing and find out that this was a personal vendetta or something like that.
    Thank you.

      It’s just Fritzy Koenig going at his neighbors again. Fritzy and I have a history, too. He caused my, then 12 year old, daughter some serious grief when I sued self-proclaimed pedophile Jack McClellan in 2007. Fritzy took issue with my restraint of McClellan. Anyway, that’s what’s going on.

      • Steve Spear Steve Spear says:

        I don’t think so my man. I know the parties so far and Fritz has nothing to do with this.

        This is really an issue that the Town needs to deal with.

        • zinnanti zinnanti says:

          Check it our Steve, I’m not your “man.” Call the number. It’s Fritzy’s voice on the recording. Thank God I don’t live near you people. What a CF the YV is.

          • Steve Spear Steve Spear says:

            Thanks for the correction I had mis-posted this comment. I thought I was responding to the issue that was being brought up in YV that Ed Montgomery was speaking of.

      • Paparrazi Paparrazi says:

        So your saying that the self proclaimed protector of children was protecting a pedophile?

    • Paparrazi Paparrazi says:

      Ok, I see Branson posted it.
      Dear Mr Branson. Please explain why this is urgent? Are you part of another one of Fritz Koenigs frivolous, malicious, vindictive lawsuits or just one of his minions?

      • Greg, don’t drag me into this. If I get a press release, a notice of hearing or announcement of a meeting I post it. That’s the nature of Cactus Thorns. Often I’ll put up something when I could care less about it. Much like in this case.

        Now back to something I do care about: “The Girl Who Played With Fire,” by Stige Larson (The greatest crime novel thriller in the world (a trilogy)).

        Have a nice afternoon.

        • Paparrazi Paparrazi says:

          Branson, some years back you said that I should not have admin access, was a loose canon. In the meantime I wondered who gave my real name to Fritz, now I know it was you.
          Your connection to “Apples” Tomlinson Holman explains much.
          Why did you say that this case was something you could care less about then turn around and file to have court access to post the proceeding up on youtube?
          BTW, I’ sure you can relate to The Girl Who Played With Fire”

          • Paparazzi, people in here frequency call me Ben. No big deal. That is my given name.

            FYI, I have filed correspondence in the Superior Court with Judge David Cohn which is now public record on the matter you vaguely referenced in your April 13 comment (above).

            I don’t care about the issues or what the property owners are bickering about. It is not my concern.

            But I filed the document — along with Mark Gutglueck, Publisher of S.B. Sentinel — because there is a “pending protective order” for a blackout of news and information. We requested the Judge Cohen consider not granting the order.

            My only concern is that such order would impose restrictions on the public and the press.

            Btw, I didn’t give your name to anybody. I do not know who “Apples” Tomlinson Holman is not do I care who he or she is.

            And I don’t want to know. I have no clue what the heck you are talking about with the Youtube thing. I don’t care about it and don’t want to know about. I care about local politics. That is what I blog about.

            Obviously you are obsessing about these issues. Don’t drag me into IT. I JUST DON’t GIVE A FLICK ABOUT ANY OF THIS.

            I haven’t time to bicker with you and have to paint an outback shed or have my homeowners insurance cancelled.

            • Paparrazi Paparrazi says:

              Ok, I get it. It’s just a coincidence that even though your not interested in the case you just happened to get further involved in it?
              It’s also just a coincidence that you are the only person to refer to me by name and “Apples” Tomlinson Holman’s same sex partner Fritz is the same person who published my name along with libelous comments about me on his deranged website. Your also the guy that dragged me into some kind of wierd feud with him over something that I said which either you or Fritz interpreted as being about him. You seemed to have had contact with Fritz and made a comment that Fritz is mad.
              Now you expect the public to believe that after all these years you just woke up and found out that Fritz’s life partner is “Apples” Tomlinson Holman?

            • Paparrazi Paparrazi says:

              There was no protective order for a blackout. Seriously, where do you come up with this stuff?

              The protective motion was only for pre trial deposition and not a black out.

              Anyone could attend the court proceedings or get the info on the court website as it’s open access.

              BTW I hope you painted your shed Yellow to match your journalistic style.

    Put it in town. Nobody important lives there.

  4. Paparrazi Paparrazi says:

    The religious bigots lose!
    Sorry Branson, seems your a little less enthused about posting that info…..

  5. Update: The record reflects that Judge Cohn granted a 45 day extension
    on the pending protective order — an order that the Publisher of the San Bernardino Sentinel calls “certain aspects of this litigation a blackout.” That is why the Publisher of the Sentinel any I asked that the public and the press not be restricted and have access to public information and court documents.
