SNOW IN T-TOWN



2ND TIME IN 20 YEARS

Temecula, CA – Imagine awakening to the 2nd snowfall experience in Temecula after living here for 20 years


when you come from the winter wonderland of Iowa. Only once before many winters ago did this rare phenomenon happen and as I write this, the sound of surprised and excited kids will soon be heard as the valley awakes.

The surprising snowfall occurred after a rainy evening and scattered cold rain periods during the day yesterday. At present, the temperature is 31 degrees and this time the west hills are covered completely, not just above a certain height. Meanwhile on this side of the valley cars are covered. For a moment I thought I was back in Louisville because it usually snows a wet heavy snow there.

Seeing palm trees drooped with snow on their leaves, grass covered, my neighbor’s coy pond cover wrecked due to the weight of the snow, and the white west hills makes it look like Santa and Jack Frost rolled into town for the Nerds In The New Year function of Cosplay happening tonight at the Uptown Tavern. After the jump are another couple of snowy pics, courtesy of Jack Frost, Old Man Winter, and Santa Claus. One also wonders if this is a sign of the weather-fixing witch due to hit the valley next year sometime.

XMAS HOUSE CALLS



SEASONS GREETINGS FROM MR. PETE & THE GIRLS

Temecula, CA – Another year draws down and the world seems a little crazier. While Washington warms up to Cuba, keeps up ethnic cleansing in an effort to poison Putin’s breadbasket, the Ukraine, with Big Ag’s GMO crops while force feeding Russian youth all the Afghan ‘boy’ [heroin] from the world’s most inbred pedophilic culture [see The Kite Runner], Hollywood manages to step on Kim’s last nerve, upsetting the boy-man leader. Not a smart move.

Speaking of upset, Cosby’s comeback, Ferguson, and Eric Gardner have all created the latest dust storm as the world grows grayer by the day. Meanwhile the local mall is packed as people again celebrate the commercial birthday of a man who was born, killed, and came back to life.

He also never wrote anything down to be sold by the moneychangers of future ages, a revelation unknown to those who say the love of money is evil while requiring tithes. Modern life is so perplexing and we are only two moons into our latest foretold tetrad. Luckily, some things never change and remain as anchors. Needing some stabilization, I called Dr. Nurse for some house call cheer.

We chatted about the upcoming battle for the legalization of cannabis and the mobilization of forces within the cannabis community as sellouts are revealed and those stoned on their own egos are outted. She prescribed a healthy dose of 420nurse direction to soothe those anxieties.

Then the subject switched to more pleasant things, like the 420Nurses and the next thing to happen concerning my book Memoirs of Mr. Pete. We reminisced about the past great year which saw both the spread of medical marijuana acceptance and membership into the movement known as the 420Nurses.

T-TOWN TUNES ARE COMING



THE SKINNY ON TEMECULA’S PHAT NEW RADIO STATION

Temecula, CA – As promised, the Calendar has the up-to-now down-low on the coming Temecula radio station.

Probably a number of people are wondering where the station will be located, hiring practices, type of station, hours of operation, etc.

First on the type of station. The syndicate that owns the international distribution rights is always on the lookout for the next hot craze. They are a start-up group and seed new areas to test market the ‘next’ big thing. Temecula was chosen because the market is upscale and though outwardly conservative with strong Christian values, a lively underground music scene flourished producing both an eclectic mix of local artists and touring band van stops. 

Unlike American radio music stations which segregate themselves into genres or audiences like ‘urban’ aka black, this French consortium seeks to reinvent the wheel of radio airplay, which like a sour note is flat, commercially. This radio experiment is set for an initial 3 month test cycle. If after 90 days a viable audience hasn’t grown in this market, the test is over and the music stops.

TEMECULA TO GET NEW RADIO STATION


BACK TO THE FUTURE

Temecula, CA – Fresh from breaking the story about the new Club Velocity and sandwiched between Club Cosplay’s Nerds In The New Year comes this breaking music story. Temecula is about to get a new radio station.
 
As my street mole sat gasping for his breath with the news, at first I was only able to ask him questions and get head signals. After he finished but before he could give me the real skinny, he showed me the picture on the right. He said that was all he could squirrel away before he was chased by rough tatted-up security.

Is it an oldies station?  …No

Is it rock?  …No

Is it smooth jazz?  …No

Is it AOR, country, hipster, talk?  …No

He motioned and I leaned in closer. He whispered, grabbing my shirt front to pull me close.

“It’s us.”

CONGRESS PASSES HISTORIC MEDICAL MARIJUANA PROTECTIONS



THE DAMN CRACKS

Temecula, CA – Hot off the wirer from my Jimmy Olsen comes this news tip so fresh it’s smoking, pun intended.

Congress dealt a historic blow to the United States' decades-long war on drugs Saturday with the passage of the federal spending bill, which contains protections for medical marijuana and industrial hemp operations in states where they are legal.

The spending bill includes an amendment that prohibits the Department of Justice from using funds to go after state-legal medical cannabis programs. If the bill is signed into law, it will bring the federal government one step closer to ending raids on medical marijuana dispensaries, as well as stopping arrests of individuals involved with pot businesses that are complying with state law.

“When the House first passed this measure back in May, we made headlines; today we made history," Rep. Sam Farr (D-Calif.), who in May introduced the medical marijuana protections amendment with co-sponsor Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.), told The Huffington Post regarding the bill's passage. 


"The federal government will finally respect the decisions made by the majority of states that passed medical marijuana laws," Farr added. "This is great day for common sense because now our federal dollars will be spent more wisely on prosecuting criminals and not sick patients.”

WILL PECHANGA ADD POT TO POKER?



OBAMA’S JUSTICE DEPT APPROVES ALL REZ TO GROW WEED

Temecula, CA – At this hour the Temecula Calendar has received no word as to whether the local Native 
American tribe of Pechanga will sell weed sales along with medical marijuana 
grows on tribal land as authorized by the Justice Dept. Here are the details.

‘‘Opening the door for what could be a lucrative and controversial new industry on some Native American reservations, the Justice Department on Thursday will tell U.S. attorneys to not prevent tribes from growing or selling marijuana on the sovereign lands, even in states that ban the practice.

The new guidance, released in a memorandum, will be implemented on a case-by-case basis and tribes must still follow federal guidelines, said Timothy Purdon, the U.S. attorney for North Dakota and the chairman of the Attorney General's Subcommittee on Native American Issues.

LORD OF THE SMOKE RINGS



THE REAL ROAD TO WELLSVILLE “...AND FILLED THE WHOLE EARTH”

Temecula, CA – Sitting here this chem-trailed skied Monday, hitting some organic Orange County Green
from a seashell that’s as smooth as 100-year old Scotch [no cough], a survey of the cannabis crusade to date seems in order for my readers. In a field so naturally smoky even before the first shot is actually aired for the coming fight to legalize pot, you can’t tell the players even with a program.

Here’s the down low: Coca Cola, KFC, and Bayer Aspirin are multimillion, if not billion dollar players in the world today. However, all these product lines weren’t invented by the people who profited. No, in one way or another, the little people who had the original knowledge and were rooked out of what was theirs. Their treasure was taken from them to enhance others who cared not a wit for the product, only the bottom line. For my readers who believe in that principle, the logic that we can do better, as in ‘have a better nation than the indigenous of that nation because of being more civilized’, stop reading here.

OLD TOWN TEMECULA GAINS VELOCITY



TABOO SUNDAYS

Temecula, CA – Just in time for the Noggy Season comes this latest entertainment geared at those still in the early prime of their lives, those looking to gain some velocity outside of stomping grapes and smoking stogies.

Starting this Sunday, my youngest son’s B-Day and our first Pearl Harbor for those older vets, Lienzo Charro Mexican Restaurant Bar & Grill in Old Town will be having the Grand Opening of Velocity, Old Town’s latest hip and trendy for those hip and trendy.

Hosted by Anita Rose, doors are 9PM rolling out when the day diners roll up will be Hot DJs, the latest tunes, pleasant company, and time to socialize before the showtime start at 10:30 with Special Queens. Grand Opening music is to be spun by Mark DJ Mas Sandoval on deck pumping out the beats and just a 5$ cover for a party scheduled from 9 to 2, and then it’s you.

The rope-happy logo to look for, for those who like that sort of thing, right after the jump.

A MOVIE FOR MARYANN



MY REVIEW OF ‘THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER’

Temecula, CA – Though me and my tee shirts are part of the fabric of T-town city council meeting legend, [rumor had it that one more appearance would lead to ‘black tie only’] I never put much faith in hearsay and always looked to the one person who seemed and still does, to be the sweetest, Maryann Edwards.

Though some of you may be waiting on a punch line or zinger, I only write what I see, since I don’t have a cat to be rescued anymore. 10 lives with me and you’re done.

Maryann was the only one who tried to understand the music scene that I was a part of, the underground part, or put another way, the ‘wallflower’ part. And to go along with our lady councilmember/mayor’s thrifty sense of management, watching this movie won’t cost you. 

If you are reading this, Maryann, keep your popcorn on the chair or it will get soggy from emotion that’s released from superb acting and complex issues, in a movie where you don’t know the story till the end. If Shawshank and Ferris had a baby, it would be Perks. Yeah, it’s like that!

MURRIETA MAYOR SUED


IT’S WHO YOU KNOW, NOT WHAT YOU BLOW

Temecula, CA –In Hollywood the old saying is it's not what you know, it’s who you blow. In Murrieta, being close to Hollywood, the saying is, ‘It’s who you know, not what you blow.’


Mayor Alan Long, re-elected after resigning from office long enough to get the label of ‘former’ in the [in the ‘if it bleeds’] press, has the leading man looks, there is no denying that. Being a fireman means hero instead of bully, and a government ‘double-dipper’ shows a shrewd Christian in a place with a church on every corner. There’s a reason Murrieta is the state’s No.2 safest city. Being a registered member Mayor with Sustainable Living aka Agenda 21, the same people who stood with him at the border vote at the polls. The mayor’s re-election bothers those who don’t see the real world. Didn’t you ever hear, Life’s not fair

But firefighters are different. They are a breed apart, like farmers. The story surrounding the case portrayed illustrates some interesting conflicts.

Melissa Reynolds was one of the four cheerleaders, ages 14 to 17, injured.

Her grandmother, Rozette Dewart, says the 16-year-old is now spending most of her days in a hospital bed at the family’s home.

TO JEFF STONE, SHERIFF OF NUGGINGHAM



GOLDEN FRIDAY

Temecula, CA – It seems that Santa’s Elves can’t be everywhere this holiday season and so, a certain segment of the public has been put to use instead. And true to the existence of Scrooge, instances of generosity are meant to illustrate how we should be all year long.

For the special task of giving away $60,000 on Black Friday rather than grabbing it to start the Christmas
Season, a unique band of volunteers was needed, and found. The Amazonian group who took up the cup have seduced Darth Vader and shown him the light. Are they female Bill Cosbys*?

The following story and pictures show the natural flow in the season when no ‘fees’ are set by authoritarian rules like existed in the days of Robin Hood’s Sheriff of Nottingham, the fee collector then, and now our Jeff Stone, the winner from this level who moves on as THE sheriff of Nuggingham. Nothing ever pissed off the old sheriff more than an act of generosity from assets that he had deemed a piece of.

Herein is the story of giving away $60,000 dollars worth of processed condensed cannabis, what is commonly called ‘dabbing’ shatter. The people, rather than the state, got the benefit from the maker who produced it for fellow patients, not to fund some bureaucrat’s new staff. The Xmas elves that assisted were those with the cutest ass ets, the 420Nurses, of course.

DR. CLIFF HUXTABLE, R.I.P.



NIKKI GIOVANNI AND DOROTHY DINGLET

Temecula, CA – When Judgment comes to America, and it is coming, millions of voices will cry out, ‘Why?’ 

I won’t be one of them.

On Monday, corporate America’s favorite black clown, ‘self-made, Philly-made, Temple-made’ entertainer William Cosby, Jr. was unmade by Temple University who along with other educational institutes have distanced themselves from the [in]famous entertainer in lieu of more women coming forward with molestation stories and recollections. A couple more black women have joined in with support for the entertainer as did Whoopi. However, not all black women were always on Cosby’s side as the vid from Nikki Giovanni made in 2007 shows, after the jump.

On the same topic which makes news every day as more allegations come forth, one question that women who aren’t sought after or placed in positions that can be iffy under the best of conditions, is the question of ‘why now?’ Since sexual molestation is as old as dirt, a tale of a woman named Dorothy Dinglet may help readers, male and female, understand why these women are coming out now. If none of you recalls the name, that’s because Ms. Dinglet died in 1662 but her story was recorded and that’s how I know. I’m old but not that old.

Elderly man with Alzheimers is missing, police seeking help in locating him

Perris, California -

---

Temecula drivers beware: DUI checkpoint on Dec 6

Temecula, California - The Temecula Police Department’s Traffic Unit will be conducting a DUI/Driver's License Checkpoint on December 6, 2014, at an undisclosed location within the city limits between the hours of 9:00 PM to 1:00 AM.

The deterrent effect of DUI checkpoints is a proven resource in reducing the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol or drug involved crashes. Research shows that crashes involving an impaired driver can be reduced by up to 20 percent when well-publicized DUI checkpoints and proactive DUI patrols are conducted routinely.

POLITICIANS, PROFIT, POT, AND PATIENTS IN RIVERSIDE COUNTY



“ANIMALS CAN’T AFFORD CONDOS!”

Temecula, CA – Today the church will tell you the world is evil while its leader sits in a gold chair/throne with an upside down cross embellishing the chair back, out of sight of public viewing and worship. Regardless of that distinction, or maybe because of it, the church seems to know what the true situation is. Whether we are getting the full real message can be determined by your interpretation of Revelation.

While national politicians play their game of control over which ones get to push their unwanted agenda over the populace, a time long written about is occurring and even modern literature sounds the warning, like Calvin and Hobbs, an avant-garde cartoon strip drawn in an approximate ten year arc, renowned for its integrity against commercialism, political satire, comic strip innovation. The classic series of adventures written, drawn, lettered, and inked by Bill Watterson lasting to 1995, speaks to us today about Riverside County politicians [and all places] in this funny reveal that could be about RC’s medical marijuana regulation.

The proposed go-ahead for marijuana growing penalties put forth shows a tendency to "inflate weak ideas, obscure poor reasoning, and inhibit clarity," and fits a report titled The Dynamics of Interbeing and Monological Imperatives in Dick and Jane: A Study in Psychic Transrelational Gender Modes. Put another way:

The four panel daily shows Calvin and Hobbes on a walk in the local woods and they come to a clearing. Calvin notices the cleared away area and remarks a six-year olds curiosity of what happened, “Now it’s a mud pit.” Hobbes, who can read, spots a sign that says, “Future Site of Shady Acres Condominiums.”

Shocked and aghast, Calvin hollers, “Animals can’t afford condos!” Hobbes sardonically remarks, “’Shady Acres’? The only shade I see is from that bulldozer.”

That in a nutshell describes what this reporter has learned about the RC Supes Board. The report, starting with Supervisor Jeffries who bases his support from questionably figures which hide a Shady Acres agenda, starts right after the jump.
