When I was just a kid the State used to have a Saturday afternoon movie. My folks dropped us off there one afternoon to see, "The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad." I thought I was going to see a pirate movie...
When I saw that big old one eye'd Cyclops coming out of that cave I realized this ain't no pirate movie.. Scared the taters out of me.

Thank You Tom Hanks.

Well, I think it is really terrific that Tom Hanks made a donation to our local state theater. I am glad that he has family here, and has taken an interest in our community. I think the local theater board should make him an honorary member, and ask him, and director Ron Howard for ideas as to how the theater could be brought back to its former glory.
The Chamber of C. in their proposed focus on business/tourism through the job training center should view the state theater as a business and make it a target for securing grants. It is one of the last remaining "historic" buildings in Red Bluff. The RB city council should quit being so "short-sighted", learn to manage their books, and return the transient tax revenue back to the Chamber. This was the original intent for collecting these funds. Anywhere else, it would be considered theft.

WOW you go Pat! HeheÖ So much hatred for people in Tehama County. Maybe you should see a Doc cause all this hatred towards people is going to cause you to age faster and die early. Itís not good to have some much anger in you. I hear Yoga is good for you and meditation also helps. Unfortunately for you people just donít care about your opinion so I would really try to seek some peace in your life. GOOD LUCK WITH THATÖ.
Still don't own your words?

My dislike is directed at people like you who back corrupt politicians. I work out every day and have peace. I feel it is my calling to try to clean up the corruption in Tehama County, so maybe we can be a healthy and prosperous community like we used to be before the scourge of Koenig and his friends ruined the wholesome fabric of our town. Nothing has gone right since.

If your okay with that than stick your head back in the ground and continue on your road of apathy and denial. No one is stopping you. That you think I'm the bad guy, because I don't back down shows me your true charachter even without a real name. As far as people not wanting to hear my opinion. The blogs supporting me out way the blogs against me.

See, how I debated with you, without personal attacks. I would have more respect for your opinion if you would own it and debate the issues not the personality.

What I don't understand is why your okay with the "things you don't like". Those things I don't like have to do with protecting our children from good ole' pedophiles. You should care, especially; because you have children. I pray your child will not be raped and sodomized, like what happened to my friends four-year old and then have good ole' boy law enforcement ignore and cover it up because the man who did this was a friend of ex-Sheriff Ron Koenig, and his wife, who videotaped the sexual assault, while her 11 year-old participated was the lead teacher for Tehama County Schools Developmentally Disabled Program and was hired after the "investigation" by all agencies involved, was hired at Juvenile Hall.

Parker and Cohen covered up that molestation and they have been covering for three county employees at the Juvenile Hall who was having sex, giving guns and drugs to minor gangbangers, in Juvie or out for the last five years. Hopefully, your children won't have adult's paid by the county steal their innocense.

This is your community and leaders you defend. I stay in Red Bluff, because I live it and it is my home and it is worth fighting for. Believe it or not I have lots of friends in the community who love and support me and lot's don't.

Your going down a road that ive all ready traveled. I work very hard to teach my kids right from wrong, not to talk to strangers, and never get in to someones car that they do not know. now as to things i dont like how do you know im not fighting the things that i dont like? and to tell you the truth, this has nothing to do with me Thanking Tom Hanks for his support to our town. theres just to many ungrateful people out there. Im sorry to hear about your friends 4yr old. my heart goes out to the child, because those scars never go away. now it time people stood up and said thank you to the people who have done good things. cuz just because you may be a star doesnt mean you forget your roots.

Not to be rude, but what does all of this have to do with the story at hand. Tom Hanks did something nice for our community, and everyone wants to talk about how corrupt Tehama County is, we all know this. so how about people Thank the good man and go on to something else

Jen,

85% of all sexual assaults are comitted by someone the survivor/victim knows. Therefor teaching your kids to not talk to strangers and/or get into there cars, will not keep them safe.

I know this is off the original topic, but relates to a what you said in your post and a important statistic everyone should know.

I raised my children in Red Bluff. They graduated from Red Bluff High School. I met Tom Hanks when he was in the area due to a family illness. He was just as gratious in person as he appears on screen. I'm aware that he donated to local interests in the Red Bluff area and I applaud him. I worked for 23 years in law enforcement and can share a cute story involving Mr. Hanks. Mr. Hanks was driving on I5, rather quickly, which alerted a law enforcement unit. When he was stopped, he advised the officer that he was in a hurry because he was supposed to audition for a part in a sitcom in which he would have to dress up like a girl and pretend to be a girl. The officer told him to slow down and did not write a citation. I'm not sure the officer actually believed him at the time, but obviously that sitcom was a hit and Tom Hanks got the part
