THE TEMPERATURE’S RISING!Posted on June 20th, 2012 2 comments
I have reviewed the feedback from both MDJ offices regarding your inquiry for access to their records. In both cases, the office personnel were incorrect in handling your requests. Identification of a requesting party cannot be required, nor is it appropriate to require an explanation as to why the document has been requested.
Those two MDJs and office supervisors have been informed of their error in handling your request and I will also follow up with a reminder to all MDJ offices as to the proper procedure.
I apologize that these mistakes were made but am appreciative that you brought it to my attention so that I can take remedial action.

This email received today. Thank you. It’s nice to see a Lancaster office operating quickly, efficeintly and decisively!
On Saturday, I posted “A WHOLE LOT OF JUDGING!” (click here), in which I recounted my experiences in obtaining public documents at District Judges Cheryl Hartman’s and Richard Simms’ offices. I emailed Court Administration on Monday, they requested more info and I supplied it on Monday, and today I received this response. Excellent!
SEARCHING FOR THE SEARCH WARRANT?
What I have not received is a response to my email to the District Attorney’s Office requesting the name of the Judge who sealed the Search Warrant in the May 16th murder of Erma Kaylor (see this morning’s post immediately below). I sent a second email request today and will follow-up by phone tomorrow.
HOT, HOT, HOT!
The Prison Board meets tomorrow at the prison at 9:00 am for their monthly meeting. It is open to the public. The interim warden, Paul K. Smeal, is making positive changes and I am told there will be some important announcements at tomorrow’s meeting.
Smeal is also going to take the Board members on a tour of the prison following the meeting. With a predicted temperature of 98 and no air conditioning, will it be too hot for Commissioner Scott Martin?
MY BOSSES LOVE YOU!
“Cindy, this is Mayor Gray. You can call me Dick.”
“Hello, Dick! To what do I owe this honor?”
“Cindy, I need you to come to my office stat! We need to badmouth that damn Brunswick Hotel again!”
“I’ll be right up, Dick!”
“Well thanks, Cindy. I appreciate the quick response.”
“No problem, Dick. My bosses love you! They still talk about how you tricked the public by saying you’d do a feasibility study on the convention center if elected.”
“That was a good one, wasn’t it?”
“Yes, Dick. They still laugh out loud over you going back on your word and reaming out the ‘naysayers’ the day after you were elected. Good times.”
“I still enjoy that, too! I’m a lawyer, Cindy. You know I’m lying when my lips are moving! I’ll hold the door open for you.”
Yes, folks, check back tomorrow for the complete chat between Mayor Dick and LNP reporter Cindy Stauffer as they work together on an article to knock out the Brunswick. Wow!
Don’t let Dick near the prison. All that hot air would definitely not help matters!
