    • The Phoenix project is ashes due to bad management leadership from the dais.

      29 property owners had the $33 million bond debt shoved in their face like a custard pie without a vote for the benefit of secret bond holders and others. That massive debt thus hasn’t benefited the city or its residence.

      This morning after a review of State demands and legal documents, The state’s DOF and AG call the whole matter a sham and “directly” questioned the ethics of Munoz and (then) Community Development Director/ RSG consulant Matt McCleary.

      Next stop… the city pushing for tax increases or bust?

  • The Desert Trail story titled “City will tear down, rebuild downtown specific plan” is informative and well done. Thank you. Conversely, the local radio station brushed over this tremendous story of public […]

    • The city manager inherited this inexcusable downtown revitalization chaos from three overzealous council mavericks, outside council A. Patrick Muñoz, Rutan & Tucker, RSG Matt McCleary and a since fired city Manager Richard Warne. There are no bragging rights for these individuals.

      Can we all wish City Manager Frank Luckino well with cleaning-up this embarrassing revitalization meltdown?

    • Twentynine Palms is the Poster Child for negligence, misuse of public funds and incompetence.

      The California Department of Finance and State Attorney General plummeted the city with demands surrounding the bond and “PP”. They severely criticized Munoz and McCleary for their professional practices.

      That ultimately contributed in the state usurping millions of the bond debt. Thus, the city doesn’t have the $$ to complete “PP”.

    • The California Attorney General and California Department of Finance plummeted the city with demands to correct irregularities. They severely criticized Munoz and McCleary for misleading the city and wrongdoing and demanded they clean their mess. As a result, the state ultimately usurped many of those funds. Thus, the city hasn’t any money to complete the intent and purpose of the Bond debt terms and conditions.

      Local government in 29 has been a disaster for taxpayers, citizens, voters and residents.

    An editorial opinion from Z107.7 News… The Town of Yucca Valley is drafting a new ordinance to deal with the legalization of marijuana, both for medical and r […]

    • Today the the bells of the The First Amendment Freedom of the Press rang very loud across the Basin at the local radio station with the editorial/opinion piece by Managing Editor Tami Roleff. The Morongo Basin Broadcasting Corporation and Ms. Roleff are saluted for this editorial.

      Editorials or opinions are rare at the station. It is encouraged to write more editorials. It dosen’t matter if we agree or disagree, editorials such as Roleff wrote are the grass-roots of journalism.

      When the Y.V. council visits the issue of Prop. 64 (marijuana for recreational and/or medical use), they have many alternatives to serve the people and become more of a hub — including deriving more taxes. As the editorial points out, Y.V. voters in fact approved Prop 64. It won by 855 votes. It needs to respect Y.V. voters.

      The old Measure X on no dispensaries or home delivers is moot.

      The station’s editorial is correct and timely. They did their homework!

      Further, no town or city council shouldn”t have the power to control California’s INTRASTATE COMMERCE by picking and choosing who can legally enter the city to make legal deliveries of commerce. There are a myriad of mobile couriers that are in my opinion unconstitutional bared from the city. Y.V. has the ability to move itself into the future and serve voters and residents. Certainly, they have the ability to serve participating veterans, seniors and Americans with Disabilities whom choose to use a safe and legal alternative plant medication.

      Postscript: The Twentynine Palms City Council is hopeless in terms of genuine concern (as opposed to rhetoric) and compassion for participating veterans, seniors and Americans with Disabilities whom choose to use a herbal, safe, legal plant as medication. That council is approaching brain dead status with deficits, lack of funds to complete the Phonenix project, bond debt plus costs and attorney fees of $33 million, a retail vacancy rate of just over 41 percent. They are misguided and gullible. Consultants have just recently recommending a possible sales tax increase in the very near future (as an alternative to the city’s reckless and moronic spending spree) to which the city is facing more $$ going out than coming in.

      The majority the 29 council are incapable of change, incapable of compassion and don’t give a hoot that their voters yes on the recreational use of MJ. They copied a boilerplate embargo on dispensories and have restricted interstate mobile deliveries.

      On the other hand, Y.V.’s council is presently dealing with their MJ ordinance and they are smarter and better educated on the new ordinances they are drafting. Well see… .

    • Dan, all Americans are the ‘public’ in public lands. Our shared outdoor heritage should be protected for future generations, not exploited. There are two sides to this issue. No need for either side to trash or bayonet the other. Both sides need space.

      What is scary is when the exploration begins on public lands such as mining, logging, quarrying, construction projects, developed, drilling for gas and oil exploitation, open pit exploitation, transfer of these lands to private ownership, off-road use, etc.

    • Factors concerning the failed war on drugs:

      The criminalization of drugs, the failed war on drugs, privatization of Department of Corrections Criminal Justice System, lobbyists (including the DEA and California Correctional Peace Officers Association (considered one of the most powerful political forces in California politics), and overzealous enforcement agencies have fueling the drug epidemic, keeping it alive.

      Iceland is very different in the way they deal with their youth and their approach to opiates and drug addiction.

      American Gulag justice is a draconian policy that does not work. We have the largest gulag of prisoners in the world, including youth in lockup.
