HERE’S LOOKING AT…

July 31, 2013

YOU, KID!!

It’s a Wildomar magazine first, using ALL CAPITAL LETTERS in the title line, which generally means, in current e-mail and texting usage, that you are SCREAMING at your readers.

According to a recent Lake Elsinore/Wildomar Patch article, the usually community-friendly Lake Elsinore Storm baseball team is a erecting a garish 55 foot tall television screen which will glare at you and I as we pass by on Interstate 15 with enormous 5′ x 16′ Storm Eyes.

Apparently the City of Lake Elsinore has little municipal regard for the City of Wildomar’s long-standing “Dark skies, bright stars” philosophy, not to mention the negative impact the flashing LED sign will have on the Mt. Palomar Observatory.

COMMENTS SHOULD BE MADE TO cityhall@lake-elsinore.org.

 If you are a Storm fan, you’ll already know what time the game is.

If you’re not a fan, this won’t help.

For me, the sign will be a specific reason not to attend any Storm game.

Wildomar’s “Whatever” Committee Is Expected To Receive And…

July 24, 2013

…SMILE AT THE $10,000 BIRTHDAY PARTY

Despite its inclusion in the language of the Measure Z ballot language, which was thought necessary, by the  expensive election consultants to  assuage the concerns of a larger margin of Wildomar’s voters sufficient to win passage, I have little  confidence that the City Council “insiders” appointed to the “Parks Funding Citizens Oversight Advisory Committee,” such as John Lloyd, will express any critical commentary on the proposed $10,000 birthday party budget for that all-important sixth birthday party on July 01, 2014.

The City of Wildomar has finally posted the agenda for Thursday night’s mislabeled “Measure Z Funding Oversight Advisory Committee,” where the recommendation  by City Staff is for the committee to “receive and  file” the park-related budget expenditures.

As an oversight/ advisory committee, of course, the committee members do not have any legal authority to take any action .

That being said, however,  the individual committee members have every right, nay an obligation, to provide “on the record” commentary  about the proposed expenditure of tax dollars lifted from the citizens of Wildomar.

Please click on the following link to the city’s website for confirmation:

http://www.cityofwildomar.org/uploads/files/minutes/07-25-13-oa.pdf

It is likely  that the non-Lloyd members of the committee may have been coached by their City Council sponsors to do nothing more than “receive and smile,” when confronted by citizen outrage over a  patently absurd $10,000 birthday expenditure .

 We intend to be present for the meeting and will report accordingly.

In The Event You Were….

July 22, 2013

 

…CONFUSED

The ultimate motivation and intention of the United Methodist Church/ Great Day of Service is now prominently displayed on their webpage!

The cleanup of Wildomar’s Parks on October 26, 2013 is first and foremost “A Re-Think Church Event. “

Please click on the following link to confirm:

http://www.rethinkchurch.org/impact-event/2013-great-day-service

Because the City Council of Wildomar cannot shed itself of a 501(c)(3) mentality, they will continue to function like the Wildomar Community  Council on steroids.

It is apparent that in their unsophisticated, juvenile minds, they cannot fathom the thoughtless depth of municipal impropriety that the religious imprimatur of the United Methodist Church on a secular city function will be.

For a little more exposition/exposure on whatever 10thousanddoors.org has to do with Re-Think Church, take a moment to review this “creepy” movie trailer:

Wildomar Issues Public Notice For A Committee….

July 20, 2013

…THAT DOESN’T EXIST!!

In an example of  bureaucratic sloppiness, the City of Wildomar has apparently provided public notice for a meeting on July 25, 2013 for the non-existent “Measure Z Oversight Advisory Committee.”

What should have been “noticed” is a meeting of the “Parks Funding Measure Citizen’s Oversight Advisory Committee,” which does exist to provide “on the record” verbal commentary from committee members and concerned citizens in attendance, for such things as a proposed expenditure of $10,000 for a birthday party for Wildomar in 2014 .

If City Hall fails to recognize their legal error by 6:30 PM on Monday, July 21, 2013, and fails to re-post a proper and legal notice of the meeting of the Parks Funding Measure Citizen’s Oversight Advisory Committee, the proposed  the meeting will have to be re-scheduled to comply with legal requirements for public notice of public meetings .

Hosting One Of The

July 19, 2013

SUPREMES

Back in the day, when I was a younger and more idealistic man, I happened to be installed as the pastor in a small church located in the “LA Strip,” which included the Los Angeles /Long Beach harbor-area community of Harbor City. When I took over the church,  it was primarily populated by a faith-filled group of African-American Believers.

One Sunday evening, I was given the opportunity to host a young singer, who went by the name of Cindy  Hewlett.  As I was always eager to “be a blessing to others,” (Ironic, isn’t it?) I accepted the invitation and scheduled the unknown  Ms. Hewlett to perform on a Sunday evening.

It wasn’t until after she had ministered in song that I recognized her professional identity, as follows:

Ms. Hewlett was a sweet and unassuming songstress, whose voice easily surpassed her professional  moniker “Birdsong”  and I consider it a special moment to have met her personally and to have enjoyed her singing talent.

Autumnwood Homeowners Move…

July 18, 2013

…ON FROM WILDOMAR

In their relentless but misdirected quest for an expert, any expert, to declare someone, anyone to blame but the developer who sold them their allegedly lethal homes in the Autumnwood subdivision in  Wildomar, the angry homeowners have finally moved on from Wildomar and into the halls of state government in Sacramento.

Since their homes were  proposed under, and permitted by, the County of Riverside prior to the City of Wildomar incorporating  on July 01, 2008, the City of Wildomar has ZERO exposure (moral, economic or legal) to their complaints and litigation.

Please click on the following link to the  Press Enterprise for the latest Autumnwood homeowner quest information:

http://www.pe.com/local-news/riverside-county/wildomar/wildomar-headlines/20130717-wildomar-state-takes-up-toxic-home-issue.ece

What the Autumnwood homeowner’s actually need is a properly-credentialed expert to testify in Court in their litigation against the following potential defendants:

1) Original Developer, who built and sold them their homes.
2) County of Riverside, who approved the developer’s plans and issued permits for construction.
3) Rancho Water District,  who allegedly provided  hazardous soils to the developer.
4) City of Wildomar.

But hiring experts takes money! But a credible expert is  what they’ll need to prove their case in court .

Kenny Mayes Stirs The Patch…

July 13, 2013

….POT

Longtime Wildomar resident, Ken Mayes, has taken to the pages of the Lake Elsinore/Wildomar Patch, asking the provocative question, “Wildomar; What is it good for?” As soon as I read the title, an old tune from the 1960s began to echo through my cranium.

As a result of his provocation, there is a robust exchange of ideas taking place in the Comment section that you might find interesting.
