Sadly – The 34th Annual – “I just wanted to Get the Fuck Out of Tustin” – Chili Cook-Off Hybrid Gay Pride Parade – World’s Largest Alcoholics Anonymous Recruitment – Jesus Loves You Revival and Uber Taxpayer Cluster-Fuck – “I will not be attending ever again.” – will be held on Sunday June 3 2018 – Like It or Not

Tustin, California –

Editorial –

Essentially this is Businesses – Jesus Freaks and City Hall – Helping Each Other Make Sure that No One Ever Comes Back to Tustin California for – Anything – Ever.

Many Businesses along the Street Fair Route at the Chili Cook-off are Locking their Doors and Hanging a Closed Sign – because they’re tired of the Drunks and other Losers wandering around – coming in and wanting to use their Restroom and Trashing the Sidewalks with Litter and Human Excrement.

You won’t need to worry about any DUI checkpoints though – becasue the Fat Tustin Cops and other City Employees that aren’t working on Overtime and Pension Spiking – will be Drinking – and they don’t want to have to Arrest themselves or otherwise get caught.

“Fullerton city manager Joe Felz – smelled of booze – lost control of his car – taking a sidewalk – crashing into a small tree – before skidding back on the street”

The only ones who benefit from this event are City of Tustin Employees who are getting paid and on overtime – and spiking their pensions – for doing everything involved in this fiasco – set-up – traffic control – policing – clean-up and tear down when it’s all over.

Taxpayers are the Biggest Losers on this Deal.

If you own a business on the route “Close” and take the day off – if you’re planning on attending – Don’t.

“I have been to this event a few times over the last 10-15 years, most recently being on Sunday June 7, 2015.

I am all about street fairs, day drinking, and eating good food. We got there at about 11am and lucked out with parking in the center nearby for free. Walked in, and had friends that were at Black Marlin, so I went to locate them…that place was packed. And it became a hangout later in the day as well. Just go there and ignore the dumb cook-off.

Got in line for tickets…WHAT A HASSLE!!! They are cash only, which is not posted. So, I got to wait in that line twice. The differentiate between the beer tickets and the chili tickets, so you have to plan in advance an decide how you want to divvy your tickets up. Which ends up with exactly what they want…you buy tickets that you end up not using. And then there’s places that serve food with more substance, that don’t take tickets, only cash. WTF. SO DAMN ANNOYING.

I had 2 thimbles of chili. And it was not exciting. Tons of places were OUT OF CHILI at 12pm? Is that not the whole goddam point of this event? And, the beer table was out of service too, so I wandered around looking for another one most of the time, whilst having beer and chili spilled on me from people who managed to get chili before it ran out, and beer before the tap malfunction.

I tried to sell my tickets to people in line before I left so I could recoup some of my money. People thought I was trying to run some sort of scam. LOL. I just wanted to Get the Fuck Out of Tustin!!! and get back some of the $40 I wasted on tickets.

I left after 2 hours, and I wanted to leave after 30 minutes. I wasted my money. It was not fun.

In the past it was not such a cluster-fuck.

I only went because I was in town to visit my sister and it happened to coincide with a friends birthday and she was planning to be at the Chili Cook Off, so I went. It is not at all worth the drive from San Diego. I don’t think it was worth the drive from Costa Mesa, to be honest.

I will not be attending ever again.”

“There were a lot of police walking the fair” –  [Editors Note] – Police on Overtime Pay and Pension Spiking (Caution Taxpayer Cluster-Fuck Here) – Dave

“The vast majority of the offerings were simply based on #10 cans of Hormel, Stag, or U.S. Foods chili with some minimal additives presumably there to “customize” the recipe”

“What a cluster-fuck”

“Alcohol wristbands $2”

“But WTF, NONE of the chili’s I tried were that great.  In fact, some of them were just bad.  Very disappointing! ”

“And, the most disturbing part was that somewhere, someone or some booth was handing children balloons with a large JESUS LOVES YOU screen printed on them.”

Irvine wants to reinstate Transportation Commission, hire traffic czar to fight congestion

IRVINE – The newly elected City Council wasted no time trying to tackle what many residents consider the most pressing issue the community is facing – traffic congestion.

The council on Tuesday directed staff to prepare reinstating the Transportation Commission and start recruiting a transportation manager. The council approved these proposals by Mayor Don Wagner 4-0, with Councilman Jeff Lalloway absent.

“I’m certain it’s no surprise to anyone on this council or any citizen of this great city that traffic is an issue that we are grappling with as a community,” said Wagner, who was elected in November. “I wanted to make sure that I have the opportunity to say to all of you in this city, ‘We hear you and are very interested in doing everything we can to alleviate traffic and to grapple with that issue.’”

The Transportation Commission will be tasked with evaluating the traffic impact of development proposals, monitoring the progress of traffic improvement projects, reviewing traffic signal coordination and advising the Planning Commission and City Council, according to Wagner’s proposal. Staff must return in February with necessary resolutions or ordinances to form the commission.

The transportation manager will oversee all aspects of transportation matters such as traffic management and transit planning, while serving as the staff liaison to the proposed Transportation Commission. The city plans to pay for the new person with a vacant position that’s already budgeted.

The council also directed City Manager Sean Joyce to calculate costs for the following projects:

• A pilot project to install real-time signal timing adjustments along a selected corridor, such as Von Karman Avenue. The technology detects traffic volumes to give just the right amount of green signal time.

• Providing circulating shuttles throughout the center of the city.

• Promoting staggered business hours, non-peak delivery periods and ride-sharing in the business community.

In addition, Councilwoman Melissa Fox proposed that Irvine apply for transportation grants and funds.

The city has already committed to spending $116 million toward solving traffic congestion.

According to a survey conducted by the city, about 60 percent of the respondents said traffic congestion is a “daily annoyance” or a “big problem.” More than half of the survey respondents blamed increasing population as the No. 1 cause of Irvine’s traffic congestion. Irvine also draws commuters and those who drive here for shopping and dining.

Mayor Pro Tem Lynn Schott said Irvine’s traffic and population are near capacity.

“We are going to do our best to improve the situation to keep things flowing as smoothly as we can,” she said. “But I don’t think it’d be realistic for us to say we are going to be able to spend X amount of dollars and everyone is going to be able to just sail through every intersection at any time of the day that they like.”

Deputy arrested for allegedly having sex with teenage girl in Explorer program

San Bernardino, California –

Authorities say a deputy with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department has been arrested on suspicion of having unlawful sexual intercourse with a teenage girl participating in the department’s youth Explorer program.

The department says in a statement Deputy David Israel Ceballos was arrested Friday on charges of sexual intercourse and sexual penetration with a foreign object on a minor. His bail was set at $100,000.

It says the 14-year veteran started a sexual relationship with the 17-year-old after meeting her in mid-2016. She is now 18.

They say other Explorer scouts reported Ceballos to a deputy serving as an Explorer advisor and that started an investigation. There are no other known alleged victims at this time.

The department says 34-year-old Ceballos was placed on paid leave pending a separate administrative investigation.
