    JFD, I hope you are planning to show some respect and kindness to our city council. This year’s been tough on them.

  2. #2 by Jan Flory's Dog on December 10, 2011

    Wrong. They’ve been tough on 2011.

    JFD, I’m so looking forward to The 2011 Fringie Awards!

    I’ll never forget what your former master did to my son, you poor little innocent dogie. Absolutely despicable.

    You gotta be kidding me???? All that crap for kids riding their bikes on a vacant lot?? That’s beyond absurd! Flory would fit in very nicely on the board of directors in my HOA. They are always hassling someone for some petty reason. I can’t believe she thinks your kids had something to do with the stolen car! Jan needs a new hobbY!!

    Are there requirements for nominations?

    • #17 by Jane H on December 11, 2011

      Yes, are there?

      • #18 by Jan Flory's Dog on December 11, 2011

        Nominations are chosen by the Nominating Committee that meets over beer, pretzels, and peyote brownies.

        The winners are chosen the same way.

        Suggestions from the Friends will be taken into consideration for Special Fringies©. To learn more simply search on the word and review previous nominees and winners.

          Peyote brownies….. Count me in! LOL!

          • #20 by Anonymous on December 11, 2011

            That brings back college memories….

        • #21 by SDLocal on December 11, 2011

          Beer, pretzels, and peyote brownies. Three of the major food groups right there.

          Many years ago a dear friend of mine had a little peyote ceremony for himself. Seriously. He was totally into the spiritual part of it; I figure he was hoping for his own journey to Ixtlan, but all he did was vomit and go to sleep. It makes me LOL to this very day.

          I don’t know why I shared this, but I’m chuckling while I’m typing. He was so disappointed. Man, that was funny. Poor old dude…

        • #22 by merijoe on December 11, 2011

          I nominate the entire city council including the city attorney and the city mgr for giving the nod to some independant attorney to offer ron thomas $900 grand get lost money and proclaim his dead son was no rocket scientist, then do the Bart Simpson “I didnt do it” shuffle when asked who gave the ok for this. Maybe an honary award should go to Bruce Praet-that attorney

  12. #23 by Plain Glazed on December 11, 2011

    Someone needs to whip up a big branch of peyote brownies for the poor FPD. Like the guy at city council said, don’t call them names! Give them a cookie. On second thought, anybody have the recipe for mescaline donuts?

    • #24 by Fred Alcazar on December 11, 2011

      Hahah!

      No justice, no cookie!

  13. #25 by Fullerton Public Servant on December 11, 2011

    May I suggest/nominate FPD spokesman Goodrich for his “officers suffered broken bones” comment?

    • #26 by merijoe on December 11, 2011

      good one, FPS

  14. #27 by Anonymous on December 11, 2011

    I was going to nominate someone who the blog scathed earlier this year, but instead, I’d like to nominate Reality Is.
    Reality is has been a steadfast commentor since the beginning of the Kelly Thomas case. Admitting early on in comments that he’s in law enforcement and even admitting that he has arrested Rodney King before, he steadfastly stands behind the boys in blue, never deviating from this.
    I would like to nominate Reality Is for this reason. Clearly some cops f’ed up here, and law enforcement has never realized this. Therefore, Reality is Fringie and deserves the award.
    Reality Is may or may not be a Fullerton resident, but let’s not let that stop us. Reality Is focused on Fullerton right now, and to me, that’s all that’s necessary to say

    AND THE AWARD GOES TO….REALITY IS!

    • #28 by One for the books on December 11, 2011

      Does he get a trophy and a hand shake from the Mayor?

      • #29 by Disgusted on December 11, 2011

        I have his trophy swinging.

    • #30 by Naaaaah..... on December 11, 2011

      Don’t give Reality Is any more attention. Just don’t.

  15. #31 by Lapbanddan on December 11, 2011

    If there is a catagory for the loudest voice, who does nothing to back it up, Chris and I are shoo-in’s. We talk a good game!

    Shit He doesn’t even live here and he spouts more bullshit than the OCR and VOC(EA) combined!

    VOTE FOR US!

    Merijoe,

    The “entire City Council” did not authorize a settlement offer. I was shocked to be provided an online copy of what appeared to me to be a $900k settlement proposal with an expiration date at the bottom. During subsequent open session Council Meetings and in the media, I have asserted that no such authorization had been provided. My recollection is that at least one other Council Member openly expressed disgust with the unauthorized “offer”.

    • #33 by Mr. Peabody on December 12, 2011

      Bruce, the fact that that happened without council knowledge (or at least without your knowledge) should have caused heads to roll. They didn’t.

      And that perfectly well reflects why there is a recall.

    • #34 by Jane H on December 13, 2011

      Wow!
