Twentynine Palms City Council, from left: Jay Corbin, Joel Klink, Jim Harris, Cora Heiser, and dan Mintz.

  Two issues on the Staff Report and the City Council Agenda for Tuesday, January 14, 2014, that just doesn’t make any sense: (1) The League of California Cities wants 29 Palms taxpayers pay an additional surcharge, in addition to costly yearly membership fees, to help fund the League’s redevelopment litigation against the state; and […]

29-palms-stage

By   /  June 16, 2013  /  29 Palms  /  Comments Off

jay-corbin

PREFACE The following Memorandum is pure satire based on fact, history, public records, information and belief.

They circumvented you when they went in debt to secure a $12 million plus bond […]

There are about 500,000 near-Earth objects the same size as the Chelyabinsk meteor. Less than 1 percent have been discovered by NASA. Altogether the Chelyabinsk shock-wave damaged more than 4,000 buildings, […]

By   /  December 5, 2012  /  29 Palms, Opinion  /  3 Comments

 City Manager Richard Warne is desperate.

Warne is squarely behind the cloak of danger. Why? Because when Warne packs his baggage […]
