Why don't these people identify themselves when they call their viciously bad names? When I callRead Moret he Beaumont gang liars and thieves I give my full name. You all know I served on the council and was in a position to know.

Nancy - which people are you talking about? I have always operated under my real name. We probablyRead Morea gree on this point - I don't think anyone should be allowed to post under an alias. I do know you served on the Council and I for one appreciated your service. Too many people have this idea you guys wake up in the morning figuring ways to loot the City and get independently wealthy - the Council people I have met in many cities are pretty regular people (there are exceptions!). You pretty much stood up for the people of Beaumont, just as several on the Banning Council are doing for Banning. Why do you think it is that that brings all the weevils out of the woodwork under anonymous names? **** Jeremiah

Libi, I find it really interesting that in the past you posted some very scathing comments aboutRead Moreex- chief Purvis "stealing" money from Banning, but now you come out in support of him trying to get more? Your agenda is showing. **** Jeremiah

I don't think there is any question whether or not Lloyd Fields bought an election. Anybody whoRead Morewou ld argue he didn't isn't being objective. He was quoted as saying he would do anything to change the make up of the Council, and he did. How the City of Banning will be affected, in my opinion, still has not been determined.

Jerimiah, Mrs. Franklin and Mr. Welch were not bankrolled exclusively by a developer, and combined Read Moreprobably didn't spend 1/2 of what Mr. Peterson and Mr. Miller did. Mr. Peterson and Mr. Miller were bankrolled entirely by one source, Mr. Fields. I don't know yet what I'm looking for, it will probably be land use and will probably begin to happen before the next election. One never knows what an election season will bring and one false move could cause the 3-2 vote to shift. I do believe I will recognize it when I see it. When a developer spends that kind of money on a small town election there is an agenda. There is always an agenda! Mr. Fields says he wanted a council that was more responsive to the citizens and more business friendly. We'll just have to wait and see where this goes. As they say in the movies, "follow the money."

The picture l linked to was a fairly old pic, taken well after Danny Thomas had already sold theRead Morepla ce. In the early 70s when he still owned it, there was lots of additional landscaping, with bushes along both sides of the driveway and nice gates at the front. From what I understand, it actually did have a second floor, below the ground floor and on the back side, facing the canyon.

Jeremiah April 14, 2014 at 05:02 PM
Yes, I kind of wonder also why a person needs to be paid over $100k to do a good job as CityRead MoreManager . The last go-round seems to prove that doesn't work. The last manager was paid almost $300k if this article is right and overstepped his authority and put Banning in jeopardy of lawsuits over the El Paseo project. Even worse than that, he compromised the wishes of the citizens he works for in making unauthorized changes to that project which were to the sole benefit of the developer. Maybe we should hire at $100k and increase it each year that we are happy with their service and the results of the job they do. Any City Manager worth his salt ought to be able to save or produce enough money for the City to cover his increase in salary or he shouldn't get one, would be the logical way to look at it. **** Jeremiah
