I agree!! But I have to disagree on the comment about the city being at fault. The Willits News blew the story out of context without regard to the truth with the lack of professional journalism (once again). Not that I want to mention any names here Cough** LINDA COugh* WILLIAMS, shame on her for acting out such childish antics!!

Wow Linda, who bundled up your panties?? I believe using your current job as a way to lash out on individuals is poor thinking on your part. And once again you report on something without all the facts. I guess we will have to pay 50 cents to read your retractual comments. Sometimes when I read your stories I have to remind myself that this is NOT the Willits Funnies :)

I DO know what "kinda guy" Alan Faleri is. The fact that he did not pass along unsolicited emails is proof that he isn't a "sick twisted MO**** f*****" like you.

Character assassination via anonymous postings is the playground of the dark and disturbed.

I'd love to continue this dialogue on a more healing level.

Most sincerely,

This is just another reason not to spend the 50 cents on The Willits News. Linda Williams and the editorial/publishing staff that supports her sensational "journalism" seem to always be grasping at straws to sell papers.

Check out her charged use of language in the headline and throughout the article. I don't think anyone was "singed" when they were cleared of any wrong doing, and I'm not so sure that four buddies sending inappropriate emails constitutes much of a "pornography sharing ring"...more of a "square" really.

Granted the individuals involved made poor choices, but why is this news to us? It sounds like the problem was taken care of weeks ago without Linda's "help."

that Mr. Falleri was lying when he denied "the Willits Planning Department was involved in the scandal in any way." That's BS. As is the headline. The item in the SF Chronicle's political gossip column on this reported that the person who received emails in the Willits office replied to tell the other guys not to send this junk anymore. That does not equal "being involved" in the scandal. Linda Williams seems to have a personal obsession with weird crime and sexual misdoings. It does not reflect well on the local "community" newspaper.

My understanding is that Falleri replied all right but he probably wouldn't have wanted his response posted in the newspaper, especially since he has been in the loop with Lynch for the past 7 years. Seems a bit late to suddenly think it isn't appropriate and become righteous.

And "your understanding" is based on what? A guess, apparently. since you write "probably". Paul Cayler says, "We took the situation seriously and determined there was no violation of city policy." It would've been a violation of city policy for Falleri to use city computers to pass on porn images or porn talk -- Cayler said it didn't happen. So you're saying Paul Cayler would have been lying too. Extraordinary claims and smears need evidence -- the Willits News hasn't got any evidence that Alan Falleri was "involved" in a "porn ring," and neither do you.

Chat with the Press Democrat if you want details, they have the emails as does the SF Chronicle under freedom of info. Willits news may havem too I don't know. I suspect so or they wouldn't have come out so strong.
One of the SF guys was fired 'cause as a supervisor and manager he failed to stop these, not cause he passed em around. Falleri is also a manager but seems the standards in Willits are not as high as in SF. Falleri is second in command in Willits and head of his department. sounds like someone who should have set a better example to me.

BS Willite, the FOIA's scope does not (to put it mildly) cover a city's Planning Dept. The emails that were obtained from the SF planning dept. were via a CA public records request. If the Willits News had "proof" that Alan Falleri was passing around these offensive emails, Linda Williams certainly would've reported such. The SF planning dept. supervisor was fired because he failed to stop his OWN employees from sending the emails around inside his OWN department, including to "a female employee [who] filed a whistle-blower complaint, saying she had received numerous offensive e-mails." That's not what happened in Willits. You're just making stuff up. I hope future readers will take your comments with several grains of salt.

Who cares what happened in Willits? The guy didnt send them to anyone, he commented on several, but who knows what he said. He may have asked that they dont be sent to his work email. The fact that the idiots used government computers, and email address' they all deserved to be fired just for how stupid they are. With all the smart phone technology and the like, the questionable emails could have been sent to a private email address.

Dear BS, you and I seem to agree on the facts, not sure what you think I'm making up. Falleri has been receiving smut from Lynch and others for years, he never said "don't send me this stuff" or it would have stopped years ago, some in his office were aware of the 'funny stuff' he got from Lynch. Willits didn't investigate until May, at which time, even if he had behaved improperly I suspect Falleri covered his tracks and not much was found. They got the goods on Lynch and Heise from March to May and in SF from December to May. That Falleri had covered tracks by May is no surprise. I'm not sure I agree anyone should have been fired at all but seems to me Falleri should be relieved they weren't monitoring him for months.

I would hate to be judged by the e-mail I receive from others, who are otherwise admirable people. I am also reluctant to accept an elastic definition of "porn." I don't know all the facts of this case and don't need to know them. Anyone's use of office computers is a matter between the company or government office and that individual.

One thing I DO know is that Alan Falleri is an extraordinary public servant who works effectively on behalf of the Willits community, including a substantial amount of his own time.

If I have to choose between innuendo and assumptions and my own personal knowledge from working for years with an honorable man, I will choose my own experience. It is tragic that a dedicated public servant is being smeared in this way. Why are so many eager to believe the worst?

Extraordinary? I suppose that the fact that he eats Aardvark organs makes him "extraordinary".

BTW, when Falleri worked in Ukiah, he was a pompous, arrogant, SOB....not surprised that "Lack of Code Enforcement Officer" Heise was involved, or Frank "Ray Hall Junior", also.

The female employee that filed the complaint, only days after she found out that she was not getting her promotion.. She was also found to have shared in the emails. Your right people need to get the facts straight.

Actually I would like the Willits News to do more of these investagative reporting on other deviates in the community. Nothing sells papers like blood and sex and I gots a whole bunch of quarters!

Oh, and how is that sexual harrasement lawsuit against one of those in management at the Willits News progressing??
