you can type it in your address box. There should be an underscore between the words: Impish Dragon,(just checked), and NO SPACE BETWEEN the n and the t in the word current, and a : after http. I will try one more time, if not, type it in.

It doesn't work if you click on the link above. That's some unknown person's file. It DOES work if you type it in, click the first link, and then click where you see this address. Someone who is in the know sent it to me.

Phew, I just read all 147 posts and think I burned 75 calories from just feeling the passion, anger and frustration in these posts!!! Debra~ San Bernardino was a beautiful city, an All American City back in 1976, the bicentenial year of our Country! Looking at the way it has morphed it makes me sick to my stomach and sad. One day I stopped at the gas station on Del Rosa and the 30 freeway and when I started to go in and pay a group of people not the same color as me started taunting me about what was I doing there, that I did not belong there. And they watched my every move. And not one of them looked old enough to drive! They were just there, hanging out. I looked at them straight on and told them that I grew up in the area and this was my "home" and it was beautiful, clean and has many good memories. They laughed and said it was ugly and dirty. I agreed it was not the way it was in my time there but that lack of respect for the city caused the ugly and dirty to come out. I see Redlands on the SAME PATH!!! One year ago I predicted that the Walmart shopping center was going down. It is now filthy and there are many problems cropping up. Next area is Citrus and Judson. It's going fast unless someone pays attention. Then you have the area of Church and Colton. And lets not forget the area of Orange and Colton. And now I see problems brewing at the Bowl. Do City Councils get lost in power struggles and territory claiming and need to pee on cities like dogs on fire hydrants?

If I did not make my point clear enough, the City should pay attention to the city and not their PERSONAL NEED FOR POWER. Get out there and see what is really going on in your city. It is starting to suffer INNER CITY ROT and you are ignoring this fact. State Street is nothing like it was a decade ago. The whole area around there is losing the charm. Used to have that squeeky clean image. Not more. It's starting to get this look "they don't pay me to do that, screw them, I'm only gonna do what is on my job description."

Thank you for your support "The Real Story." Your patience is highly comendable.The man I moved here with left in 1963 to join the sevice and serve his countey. He was so proud of this town UNTIL we moved back here upon the death of his mother. She was born and raised here and lived here for 84 years. Her son passed away from cancer less than 2 years after returning to Redlands. He died heart broken at the degeneration of the town he so loved.I hope you read the other posts too: "Tomorrow: McKee chosen as interin fire chief," and "Admire Jerry Beans Integrity." These have the most info. The first one that had so many responses against what the city council and city manager bid in now in the archives, "did the city council make the right decision?" I have copies of the 25 comments if anyone wants to read them. I find it repulsive that so many people in this town who blindly think that this town is great are walking around with their nose up in the air while degrading and character assasinating innocent, good intentioned people. I had it done to me, and I have heard quite a few other people didcuss this problem, and they all told me that that is why they don't like coming to Redlands-because the way the people of Redlands treats them. I have never witnessed such disgraceful demeanor in people before. It seems the "status quo" is the only thing that matters, and the city council has repeatedly made their decisions to back that "status quo" mentality. Unfortunately, it is not only the visitor or the newcomer that suffers - it is the innocent, good people in this town. The city council and city manager are suppossed to be an icon of righteous governance, but instead they have shown themselves to be an ignorant, cold, heartless, greedy bunch of power hungry wielding fools - a total disgrace to the people!

Every time I try to watch your video, all it does is take me to the photobucket main site and not to a specific video.

Is it on Youtube?

What's funny to me is how with one breath, Ms. Nester sings the praises of free speech and with another she thanks other posters for silencing people.
Free speech goes both ways.
I agree with Matt here. Nester went off the deep end when Rich appeared to say that he didn't believe her about wanting to be friends. And after reading her posts, i wouldn't have believed her too. Granted I'm new here.

I'm sure I will be next on her attack list.

Ah! You didn't read all my posts! I said to do a web search on google for "Take just one minute"(That's the name of the video) and you will find it. I don't think it's on you tube, but it might be.

Not to attack you, but if you knew me you would know better. we don't need responses such as Rich's first one where HE attacked me and provided nothing to back his statement. I have spent my life doing all I can to help bring people together and start listening IN A MEANINGFUL WAY to what each person has to say. I have reached out to many people who needed a loving ear and helped to lift them up and give them hope, and I never looked for nor wanted anything in return. I just want more love in this world and less fighting. It was the only way that I could get Rich to speak up. Like I said, no harm intended. I did what I had to do. I would like for Rich and you to open your minds a little bit more and everyone start coming together and work on the issues that must be worked on to make this world a better place-not just for us, but for our children and grandchildren and all future generations. people in this country united after 9-11. That is the unity we must restore. I can't stand seeing people hurt. I know how bad it feels. Sometimes it is necessary to hurt someones feelings to get them to wake up. I have been cursed at first and then thanked later down the road when I had to get on someone for going the wrong way. I have also had an open mind when people have corrected me in my life. I am always open to hear what someone has to say. I know that you are not aware of some of the things I have become aware of since moving here. Maybe that's why it appears so bad to you. It's not though, and in due time, Rich will see the truth and so will you. Thanks for joining the forum. What is your opinion concerning what the city council and city manager have done to our fire department. Do you have any insight as to how to help with this issue?

Correct. I don't read all of your posts...I mean there ARE so many of them...

I saw the video. How in the world does that have anything to do with the things we're discussing in this forum?

The same applies for the work the public safety officials do-they sacrifice their life and work to save peoples lives while enduring horrible circumstances while many people cry over so little- the police and fire fighters suffer through a lot as does the military, and they don't go around wining about having to do their job. And since you just admitted that you have not read ALL my posts, how can you justify anything you have said to me when you failed to get the WHOLZE PIZCTURE!!! Talk about bias! There's the proof!!! Right out of your own statement Matt!

Crime is good for the city. Redlands uses alot of free prison labor. That is why there is soo much crime. When a public official like the guy who runs the City Of Redlands utilities "Van Dorst" says crime is good for the city, you know Satan is at the helm.
