By the 12th anniversary of Sept. 11 this year, Chico firefighters hope to have a memorial established at which to pay their respects.
Capt. Dave Main, of the Chico chapter of the International Association of Firefighters, shared his vision Wednesday with the Arts Commission, which gave unanimous approval for the concept. Pending approval by the city manager, the piece should be installed later this year at Fire Station 5 near the entrance to upper Bidwell Park.
I think the memorial should be placed at City Plaza where more people can see it and not placed at the Fire Station as a new parking lot would need to be constructed. The downtown location for the memorial would help downtown business owners. The fire fighters could pay their respect at the downtown City Plaza.

First, let me start by saying firefighters are heroes! They put their lives on the line for us more often than the cops do.

My hatís off to all the Firefighters, Coast Guard, Forest/Park Rangers, Fish & Wildlife Officers and people in the medical profession like EMTís, doctors and nurses.

Next, the memorial needs to be where itíll get the most exposure!

Dave Main?! The highest paid city employee?! This guy makes almost $300,000 a year as a firefighter. Not the chief. A firefighter.

Huh?

I doubt he makes that much. What's your source? Even if he does make that much saving peoples lives it's small potatoes compared to what sports players make. And compare those wages to what freaks like mutt rummy get for raping American workers.

Fire fighters are heroes, corporate raiders are scum.

Firefighters are heroes, but not all corporations are not scum.

No, not all corporations are run by scum. But there are a high percentage that are.

Ever heard of Maxxam, or Enron to name a couple? How about Briggs and Stratton and Bain Capital? Or PG&E?

Yes, there are good business, companies/corporations out there but there are bad ones also!

How stupid he sounds??????

You are the one that responded with a personal insult rather than a rebuttal of his points. That is the epitome of a stupid response.

And even worse...that is your M.O. the vast majority of your posts are either a personal insult (if you disagree with someone) or a declaration that your own opinion is correct....with nothing at all to back it up.

That's what they do when people post information that's hard to refute.

City of Chico faces fiscal insolvency.


Councilor Mark Sorensen said this information should not have been a sur≠prise to anyone. Itís all about planning, You just typically donít spend more than you have. I get my paycheck and I donít go out and spend 115 percent of it.Ē

Yet the city has spent money it did not have for years. Generous contracts have been awarded the firefighters as the City sinks into the red.

Now the City is contemplating borrowing money to pay everyone. Well Grandpa it looks like we got what we payed for.

The firefighters are heroes. The City of Chico is 50 million in debt. May I suggest hiring regular fireman at regular salaries and avoid going into debt hiring hero firemen with hero salaries.

You can drive your Chevy to the levy or drive your Hummer to bankruptcy court also.
