The energy that you put into a project has the same return. Would you agree? Consider this... What you reject is what you acquire. What you judge is what you become. What you fear is what you attract. What you give is what you get. Put out positive and you get back positive. If you put out certainty, you get back certainty. If you put out deception, you get back deception. If you provide hope, you feel hopeful. If you give help, you receive help. The energy you put out there returns in like. Think about it a minute and you will realize this to be true.
Consider this too... we are living in some hard times - lives can change overnight. Jobs can be lost and with it our homes. No one is safe. If you want to throw stones and have such a powerful energy to sling hither dither... let it be used in a more meaningful way. Our schools are hurting... more cuts have decimated the classrooms. Our community has record high unemployment. Our state is in financial crisis beyond anything in history. Do not add to the chaos. Do you want to be part of the problem or be part of a positive force in making a difference?
I also hope our newspaper thinks about a change in reporting as well... do we need the BS stories or do we need something that will bring unity to our community. Can you make a difference? Are you part of the problem?
Thank you for listening.

Most of us are aware of all the bad economic news. Does this excuse the (ahem) mayor for not following rules or anyone else for that matter. News is news, we need to hear it all good bad indifferent. An average citizen is expected to follow ordinances and it should be applied to city (ahem) officials as well.

this would actually apply to many business owners. not just the mayor.

It sounds like a lot of ado about nothing. Moyers explained that the apartment was there when he obtained the building where his business is located. Okay if he wasn't aware that it wasn't permitted he does now ... and can either obtain a permit or move out. Sounds to me like he has upset someone at city hall and this is payback of some kind. Red Bluff has more problems to worry about than this, and I'm surprised that the editor thought it was worthy of a front page story. What's next a story about someone forgetting to license their dog?

NO THIS WOULDNT APPLY TO "ANY" BUSINESS OWNER,,,ONLY BUSINESS OWNERS THAT WERE USING THEIR BUSINESS FOR A PERSONAL LIVING RESIDENCE.(breaking the zoning ordinance)

Dont know the number of the ordinance but you can't use your principal residence to conduct certain businesses,,by the same token you are not allowed to LIVE IN your business because of zoning restrictions. Unless of course you take out a special application with the city and the city is aware of it.

I do know that building and have been in it many times before I moved to Anderson. The buiding used to be CALIFORNIA INVESTMENTS owned by a friend who is no longer here, Debbie Phelps. That is a small office on main st. and the times I walked through it there was NO APARTMENT,, so I know the Apartment was ADDED after the new owner bought it from Debbie. JM states that the APT was there when the current owner bought it. HOGWASH.

looks like the bottom line here is that whoever owns that bldg added that apt after he bought it.shame on you for not getting the proper permit when it was added.certainly no one else would be able to get away with that,,a fine may be in order

Tehama County seems to really have a problem with the residences of their elected officials. First we have Jim Nielsen's unoccupied trailer claimed as a residence, and now the Mayor living in commercial building. Seems both of them might be more appropriately accomodated in the county jail!

No surprise to me, Mayer didn't live in the City when he was elected. He actually lived on Molluc Drive off Saddlebrook. That's in the County folks!

The fact is this man lies. If anyone cared to check the public records, he has been foreclosed on everyone of the properties he has owned.

He didn't downsize to a travel trailer behind his work because his kids moved out. That's ridiculous. He moved because he has no place to go.

And Red Bluff wants this man as Mayor, or even on the City Council, making financial decisions? What a joke.

the mayor states that he is surprised that someone is so interested in where he is living.
When you hold a public office job especially mayor you are subject to public scrutiny,it just goes with the territory
