FPPC clears Grand Terrace candidates of conflict-of-inter...

"Have no fear Walt nor the Millers are my puppets. That my friend could not be further from the truth" That is the closest you have come in a very long time, Gramps, to the actual truth! I have never thought you as the puppet master kind sir. Perhaps if you read my writings as well as I yours you would understand that I see things more clearly than to think even for a moment that you are the one responsible for the Grandpa Terrorist agenda, you are just the one clicking the 'post' button. It is for that reason that your identity is and always has been irrelevant, as are you, its your boss(s) that are the concern. The meat cutter who will govern our fair town part time soon also answers to these new boss(s) and I fear for the future of this town. You are right about one thing, kind of. There was an 'old boy' group of sorts that had been at the helm for a long time. Now we have a new clique in charge but the difference is simple. The 'old boys' that got this city up and running at least cared about Grand Terrace and its residents. They made mistakes sure but at the end of the day they wanted Grand Terrace to be a great little city. This new regime cares only for the residents of the blue house, not you Gramps or the meat cutter or anyone else for that matter. They want whats good for them, the rest of Grand Terrace is only along for the ride, THATS what worry's me. I'm just saying.  (Nov 27, 2010 | post #23)

Grandpa Terrace

Although well put Mr Oliver, its not Gramps himself that is to worry about. Gramps is irrelevant as is who the person really is... it is far more worrisome the folks that Gramps answers to. As he has stated many times he is just the gatekeeper, the one that clicks the little button to actually post the views/agenda that the Grandpa Terrorist organization is promoting. You are completely correct that they fully control the flow of information and response, so it isnt really a 'forum' as much as straight up propaganda to further their cause. They are right about one thing, kind of. There was an 'old boy' group of sorts that had been at the helm for a long time. Now we have a new clique in charge but the difference is simple. The 'old boys' that got this city up and running at least cared about Grand Terrace and its residents. They made mistakes sure but at the end of the day they wanted Grand Terrace to be a great little city. This new regime cares only for the residents of the blue house on the hill and the rest of us just have to deal with it. Gramps will always hide behind his/her electronic white hood and sling his slanderous barbs at those who dare oppose the will of the almighty Grandpa Terrorist, of course there will always be just enough actual fact so that he can always say its legitimately 'newsworthy'! By hiding he/they can offer opinion about decisions that need to be made that may effect us all with their implied knowledge of all things management and yet remain not accountable for any of the outcomes, real or perceived. He/they can tell us all how the City Council SHOULD do things without explaining why it is that he/they should be listened to at all. From the shadows he/they can be quick to point out failures and loudly shout "you should have listened to us!" without the fear of reprisal because those that do express opposition simply don't get posted on the blog anyway. Dont worry too much about old Gramps, hes just a minion. The somewhat dim witted, although computer literate, servant of the real monsters of Grand Terrace. I'm just saying.  (Nov 27, 2010 | post #7)

Planning Commission forwards controversial Town Square deal

Were it just that black and white it would be easier to agree with you Gramps. To simply state the current drugstore is struggling discounts the real reasons, its not always just economics. The pharmacy counter at our local drugstore sucks, plain and simple. Even with a full staff the wait is horrible and attention to customer service atrocious. Most folks like myself that need many prescriptions that I know of have gone back to their original pharmacy's in Loma Linda etc. To say that Staters will close them is unfair to Staters but that's why you say it. We all know how much you fear the horrible (mostly immigrant) day laborers, and of course its nothing to do with any blatant racism on the behalf of Gramps. To imply that simply building a hardware store will bring throngs of folks looking for work is downright antagonistic. Why would anyone looking for work stand in front of a store, any store in Grand Terrace? Riverside, San Bernardino? Perhaps but I cant see the huge need for temp workers here in our little slice of real estate. Again, the fear of those awful people loitering around our helpless town was the point. There is no shock felt because Walt is not the pro business warrior you paint him to be, but that's another discussion. He is only what you and the Grandpa Terrorist organization allow, instruct and prop him up to be. He cuts meat, makes sandwiches and beyond that relies on the advise of others for his political identity. Its the others I got me a problem with. I'm just saying.  (Nov 21, 2010 | post #7)

FPPC clears Grand Terrace candidates of conflict-of-inter...

Mr Miller heard the whispers and saw the writing on the wall that he was going down, he made the preemptive move of being the one to bring it up first solely because he knew he was caught. He had hoped by being the instigator and pleading ignorance in his mea culpa that he would be forgiven quickly based on his immaculate history of selfless servitude. He had no idea it would get to the point of his arrest. As for the Gramps folks wanting his prosecution, it was a calculated 'disagreement' meant only to keep us dimwits from assuming that the Millers and Gramps are as CLOSE as they are. Just as the recent 'disagreement' they had with Walt, sometimes they need to speak against those that serve them, just to keep up the image. I'm sure many discussions were held prior to Walts votes and he was informed that the Gramps folks would publicly differ from his position, the one he was given by them in the first place, and further told not to worry about it as they got him the chair after all and of course they have his back. New? No not at all. Hate the blog, nope. Just have a better understanding of who is pulling the strings, or punching the keys over at the Grandpa Terrorist organization now. Its much easier to read when you know whats really being said. I'm just saying.  (Nov 21, 2010 | post #20)

Utilizing the same practice is a better way to put it I would say. I would also say that I am not mad about anything, really. I do have severe reservations about the tactics in place by the Grandpa Terrorist organization. Thank you for clarifying the variuos types of blogs for me, I may have been confused but not really. My question was to the point that Gramps has their site labeled as a 'forum'. Yes they do post some emails, some. The ones they can lace with editorial commentary or that make the point they are spinning. Yes the Sentinel outted some questionable activity that may or may not have taken place however, they did not relentless pursue the participant with a public campaign of humiliation. No, its not ok simply because she is in public office and should be able to handle it! Again Mr Miller took responsibility for his actions AFTER making them and then subsequently being arrested for them! Its real easy to apologize but as always; Integrity is how you behave when you absolutely sure no one is looking! Would Mr Miller been so sorry had it never come to light? Its funny that although I never said who I was going to vote for the assumptions that have been made. I voted for Doug, as I had planned all along and still believe to be the best choice. Experience, professionalism and character. I was impressed I will admit with how well Sally's run was in light of how late she came to the party, I respect her experience and look forward to the future and what she will do in it. As far as a guy who runs a small business being our Mayor.... He runs a business, which means he has limited time. He will inevitably HAVE TO RELY on the advise of others! Its those OTHERS I have problems with. His 'boss' orchestrated the entire thing, from his running 'partners' to the split vote. She knew how to make it happen and she did, now she's the Mayor.Yes, it WAS a better run campaign, and run by a pro. Walt can slice meat, probably really well. he was an H/R guy, over 20 years ago so he may remember SOME aspects of management but running a city is well outside of his expertise so perhaps we should consider ourselves lucky he is only a figurehead? We all look to others for advise and council, its normal. When we like people we tend to accept what they say without question and not asking what the agenda may be. Its this influence that I fear. Five years ago it was 'fun' to read the rants of Gramps, I even thought it a bit informative to read the synopsis of some of the goings on around City Hall. As time progressed I saw patterns begin and realized that although we all have agendas, whose agendas are we reading? We don't know the Grandpa Terrorist organization or their expertise. Whose to say what it is really that they are trying to accomplish? Again I say; whats good for the goose, should also be good for the chihuahua. I'm just saying.  (Nov 18, 2010 | post #18)

Grand Terrace candidates explain business priorities

Staters SHOULD pay taxes, in fact they should pay everyone's taxes, also they should pay for street upgrades as we need them, sewer lines that may or may not be needed, new shoes for all residents of Grand Terrace. They are a big company, they have plenty of money, and if they don't think that its a privileged to even be building their store in our amazing and wonderful little town well they can just leave! By the way, Walt did just what I said he would. Which is the direction his boss pointed him in. I'm just saying.  (Nov 17, 2010 | post #17)

Grandpa Terrace

since we are all in agreement, lets agree on some other items shall we? Grandpa is NOT your Grandpa. He is also not alone. Grandpa is a group, a small but ferocious group, of folks that believe only they know whats right for Grand Terrace. Where they only relating opinions toward that goal there would be no problem however, if it was boring no one would 'tune in' to hear what they had to say. So, they have utilized the 'any exposure is good exposure' way of expose journalism to increase viewership and hopefully get their views/directives/d octrine read by many more than just their small, albeit loyal, following. If it bleeds is leads so to speak, so sensationalism has become the method of approach. Over the past 5 years they have made recommendations as what 'they' would like to see happen at City Council meetings, Planning Commission meetings etc and when one dares oppose the almighty Gramps there is heck to pay. They will be electronically persecuted, humiliated and slandered by these 'unsung leaders' of Grand Terrace. Over the last months of the past election it slid from slanted political commentary and ventured into the land of cyber bullying, and they have given notice that the slide into the dark recess of moral decay because it has made their hit count jump through the roof. Now they have their magic bullet for increased exposure of the Gramps doctrine, they believe they can really get things done! Yes there are many pen names, more in use by the Grandpa Terrorist organization than others, but after all whats good for the goose should also be good for the Chihuahua right? I'm just saying.  (Nov 17, 2010 | post #5)

Anonymous fliers criticized

Because you personally like the guy you cannot simply downplay the fact that HE BROKE THE LAW, plain and simple! To continually make it seem like Bea is somehow a horrible person because she wronged a friend of your isn't alright, not now, not ever. There were many that spoke on behalf of Rob Blagojevich, many well liked and very respected persons, it didn't make his crimes less criminal. We all tend to overlook the indiscretion of those we care about and call friends, but when they break the law its not alright to hide behind a keyboard and shout 'look over there, she slept with the DA! so that means he didnt really do anything THAT bad after all!' You think Grandpa Terrorist is 'off his rocker' and yet you probably log on pretty frequently to see who they are slamming this time don't you? I'm just saying.  (Nov 12, 2010 | post #7)
