Updated 10/8/13 @4:13 p.m. Twentynine Palms — You gotta take your hats off for Mr. Spear. He has shown himself — time-after-time — to be a man of truth, integrity and honor.  Here are some  additions I’d like to make to Mr. Spear’s story “Of Politics and friends” that concerns Councilman Harris and the City’s […]

City manager says he wasn’t pushed to resign

By   /  May 22, 2013  /  29 Palms, Opinion  /  6 Comments

harry and richard

The  header to this story is a bit misleading. The Moreno Valley city manager said this week he wasn’t pushed to resign. It was not the Richard Warne (Twentynine Palms outgoing city manager) who said that. There are huge similarities with shockingly dissimilar result. Both erstwhile city managers voluntarily severed their respective contractual obligations with their city. […]

Richard, did you know that the former City Councilman Mayor John Cole is not the Mayor of Twentynine Palms? No kidding. The new Mayor in your town is Joel Klink. Is it okay to ask you to remove the picture of John Cole from the City’s homepage? That’s not all Richard… There is a new […]

BLOGGER’S NOTES “The disaster, the worst fire of its kind in more than a decade, also raises questions of whether Brazilian authorities are up to the task of ensuring safety in such venues as it prepares to host next year’s World Cup and the 2016 Olympics.” In like manner, Twentynine Palms also raises questions of […]

By   /  January 25, 2013  /  News, Opinion  /  Comments Off

The Board desperately needs another attorney to represent their interests. I believe a couple of members are beginning to recognize this. Board Member David Price: “My counsel says we need to be very careful about this…[we] maybe even be fiscally responsible.” Board member: “We’re technically in violation…this is unique concern I have.” Twentynine Palms, CA […]

Bigger fish to fry than City Manager Richard Warne

By   /  January 15, 2013  /  29 Palms, Opinion  /  Comments Off

Yes the 29 Palms City Manager well deserves to be criticized and fired for his scheming, his heavy handed style of management, his blundering $31 million city debt and his manifest failure to take steps to protect the city with adequate public safety and fire protection. But lets be clear. The problem is the city […]

City Manager Richard Warne wants us to “Eat Cake”

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

 City Manager Richard Warne is desperate. While the city rolls the dice stalling on public safety, it may be willing to place the private and  public sectors in harm’s way — as well as the three 29 palms public schools. Warne is squarely behind the cloak of danger. Why? Because when Warne packs his baggage […]

By   /  November 18, 2012  /  29 Palms, Opinion, San Bernardino Co  /  23 Comments

Updated Sunday, Nov. 18 @ 11:05 AM: A majority on the City Council have cloaked their indifference regarding the safety of residents to the constructive reality that they treat residents like douche bags.  Note also that the TPFD has been insulted and kick-around long enough by local elected officials and their City Boss.  The TPFD has […]

Councilmen’s inaction places a curse on Twentynine Palms

By   /  November 15, 2012  /  29 Palms, General Posts, Opinion  /  98 Comments

When there are needless fatalities in the future due to the dismantling of the Twentynine Palms Fire Department, city council members will justifiably be held responsible.  We all know by now, County Fire has graciously step up to the plate to take over fire services of the city in the very near future.

Ballot Measures Cutting Salaries of SB County Board of Supervisors

By   /  October 16, 2012  /  General Posts, Opinion  /  Comments Off

Oddities & Uniqueness of Measures Q and Measure R If voters want to better manage County Supervisor’s salaries they have two choices, “Q” or “R”. Begrudgingly, I have already voted for Measure R. It’s not a spite thing. It’s my feeling that perhaps this may just set an example for other towns, cities and county BOS […]
