CITY COUNCIL MEETING TUESDAY, AUGUST 5, 2008
City Council: How about adjusting priorities to really fix our slum problems?
At it's regularly scheduled meeting on August 5, the City Council will be asked to vote to approve expenditures of around $ 553,000 to do some street and sidewalk repairs on a few streets including Shalimar. LINK to agenda.
You may recall how in the distant past, ah, a couple of days ago, a 15-year-old girl was shot on Shalimar and you may recall that Shalimar has been a problem for decades due to the gangs that are there. LINK
Do you suppose the repaved street and new sidewalks will stop the crime on Shalimar or just make it easier for the shooters to escape?
Maybe we can have Katrina Foley plant some flowers on the street. That should help.
You may also remember that there are several charities on that street that are supposedly helping stop crime, etc. Funny, it's not helping. Maybe we can all hug and sing kumbaya or close our eyes and wish really, really hard?
The CM PRESS believes the money would be better spent as a down payment on one or more slum buildings on Shalimar that could then be torn down and turned into a pocket park. Remove the habitats of gangs and they'll move all on their own. Fix up the habitats and you'll just encourage them to remain.

WHAT A PHONY BAG OF WIND
Remember on the old Daily Pilot blogs how readers could post anonymous comments and how one Return to Reason, pudgy, squishy character with a big mouth, tiny brain, and no muscles used to call anonymous posters names for choosing to post anonymously?
Well, this same character is now praising dimwit CM TRUTH/jojo862 for remaining anonymous. LOL
And these lefty creeps wonder why they can't win elections in Costa Mesa. Gee, maybe it's partly because no one can believe anything they say and they're phony gasbags.
And, speaking of elections, get ready for improvement minded candidates to shut out Foley and Dixon this year. You heard it here first. The Yellow Brick Road is getting ready to open as it has in elections since 2000.
Hopefully, the pudgy, squishy character will waste some of his Geritol money again this year by donating to losers like himself.
[About the photo: At first we were going to put up a photo of the squish himself, but it was so disgusting that we were afraid anyone reading the column during dinner...well, you get the picture. Our second choice was of an actual maggot. That was a lot better than the photo of the squish himself, but we finally decided on the above photo]

At Tuesday's City Council meeting, the Council will vote on a resolution of support for the 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment.
The 5th Marine Regiment is the most highly decorated Regiment in the Marine Corps.
