Thanks for the clarification, Doug.
As a marketer, I agree with you; as a person, I'm quite happy with the vernacular the way it is. If you want to market the heck out of something, do the fall; this time of year we need some peace and quiet around here.
"Others see an opportunities to make regulated commercial trips more appealing and reduce the number of unregulated private users."
No, thanks. Looks like we private users are going to have to speak up here.
Oh cinnamon, how I shall miss thee. Downtown from the Ponds in 10-15 was luxurious. Not being able to go directly to the ponds from the mountain between 6 and 8:30 at night was not so cool.
For this summer, I really wish they would add late-night service on weekends. Yes, I realize that's not happening, but I think it needs to soon. I like my late-night concerts, and it's a real mess when the bars close. 10:44 just doesn't cut it, especially after one of the summer concerts.
Tons of people are down there hanging out for at least an hour after the bars close on weekends, and I imagine that's not too popular with anyone involved.
Show some backbone and tell these guys no. What are they gonna do, throw a fit?
Either the developer or the lessees should be taking care of this -- they surely have the money.
Works for me. I'd love a train to hop on to get out of this town. Greyhound is highway robbery.
I don't think the school board is going to be in favor of the URA no matter what the city does.
Good! Way to go!
Most of these seem very tough to prove -- but they could be corroborated.
While I appreciate Lisa's position and agree with most of it, I do think the community has the right to a summary of the allegations that are being investigated. I would agree with her about setting a precedent of someone sending an email and expecting it to be published, but that's not what happened.
This letter has been substantiated by another letter from an officer currently employed with SSPD, if I'm not mistaken. Several former officials also felt strongly enough about it to publish a letter of their own and make comments that seem to validate what was said in both letters.
No one that I know of has come forward to rebut these allegations or call into question the credibility of the accuser(s). The city is about to spend probably around 75 grand to investigate these allegations and has suspended the officers in question. I'm actually surprised the city hasn't put out a press release explaining what's going on. It's not every day that a city relieves its two highest-ranked law enforcement officers of their duties.
Bottom Line: Given the apparent severity of the complaint, I think we deserve more disclosure than we're getting, and I thank Scott for enlightening us a little further.
