The High Price of Building Our Future

I watched this little gem of a clip from Bill Maher’s cable show last night. Bill rails against the added cost laden on to stuff simply because people can get away with it it. In particular Maher notes the exorbitant cost of government projects, namely housing for the homeless and infrastructure where the “soft costs” […]

The Consortium of Corruption

Friends, an environmental symbiosis exists in nature when two organisms interact in a way that is mutually beneficial. In the course of human organizational activity we see such symbioses frequently. In the nasty intersection of government and politics such relationships are depressingly common. And nowhere can we see this operation in better form than in […]

Erection Dysfunction

  If someone takes the time to review the history of Fullerton over the past forty years, one thing becomes shockingly clear: when it comes to building things, maintaining things and planning for things, the City government just can’t do much of anything right. And yet over this long history, the City and the public […]

Silva’s Escort

Readers of this blog might think I have a hyper-obsession with toll road violations.  Not really.  It’s just that toll road violations seem to bring out the very worst and embarrassing moments in government.  Nine times out of ten, the car shouldn’t have been using the toll roads to begin with.  Such is the case […]

Why Keep Threatening Us?

For every problem that isn’t a nail, there’s a moron ready to swing a hammer. 20 Days ago FFFF got another threatening letter from the City that said if we don’t stop reporting news and telling the public the truth about what’s actually happening in their town, apparently there will be consequences. We told them […]

Return to the Pinewood Stairs

Follow us back, gentle Friends, as we revisit the construction horror show known as The Pinewood Stairs. It’s been a year-and-a-half since we frightened you with the design and construction fiasco of the Pinewood Stairs at Hillcrest Park. FFFF photo documented the sorry project even before the embarrassing party the city threw for itself since the […]

No Public Input on the Police Chief

Well folks, Fullerton is at it again. On Tuesday, without any public input, the City Council is slated to appoint Interim Police Chief Robert Dunn as the “Permanent” Chief for the Fullerton Police Department. I put “Permanent” in quotes because Chiefs tend to leave in disgrace often around these parts. The position of Police Chief […]

Community Stakeholder Survey Says

Tonight the Fullerton city council will pretend to go over the results of the Community Stakeholder Survey that just recently wrapped up. Remember that survey? It’s where the city is going to, and I quote: For the next strategic planning session, the City will conduct a community stakeholder survey prior to working with the City […]
