Error Regarding Medical Marijuana Presentation

CORRECTION: Thursday’s presentation in Redding by Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney Tracy Sims regarding medical marijuana is not open to the public.

The presentation is intended solely for authorized law enforcement and designated county employees.

We regret that we published misinformation about this event, and apologize for any confusion.

  1. Dear readers,

    I've revised the post that was originally posted here, and have sent out a correction.

    We were misinformed about an event that we thought was public, when in fact, it was not.

    The presentation was strictly intended as in-house education and information for law enforcement and designated county personnel.

    We regret the error and apologize for any confusion.

    Donni,

    In our book YOU never have to apologize for anything!!

    The SHASTA COUNTY MONEYVISORS, and the

    REDDING CITY COUNSELERS (yes spelt right 🙂 )

    SURE DO!!

    GOD BLESS AMERICA!! 🙂

  3. I appreciate the sentiment, but if I mess up, I'll speak and apologize. I should have properly vetted that information before publishing it, so I own the error.

    And rmv, I keep meaning to mention to you how much I appreciate your enthusiasm and comment frequency. You've been an active participant in the anewscafe.com family from the start.

    However, just a friendly reminder that here at anewscafe.com we encourage commenters to:

    1. use their real names

    2. refrain from name-calling and personal attacks

    3. keep comments civilized and respectful, even when you disagree (especially when you disagree)

    Thanks so much for understanding.

    OK, carry on, rmv. Have a great day.

    I will, too. 🙂

    Thank you Doni! 🙂

    I WILL carry on as long as you folks ALLOW ME TOO! 🙂

    I ALWAYS ONLY SPEAK THE TRUTH AS I FEEL IT, AND AS I SEE IT! 🙂

    1. DO YOU WANT ME TO USE MY REAL NAME? (i will gladly, how do i change it?) 🙂

    2. IF YOU MEAN SHASTA COUNTY MONEYVISORS IS NAME CALLING, I

    WILL GLADLY REFRAIN, and REFER TO THEM AS SUPERVISORS??????, and

    THE REDDING CITY CITY COUNSELERS, as THE REDDING CITY COUNCIL?? 🙂

    I HOPE I HAVE "NEVER" ATTACKED ANYONE PERSONALLY, UNLESS THEY

    MADE A OFFENSIVE COMMENT ABOUT ONE OF MY ENTRIES, DIRECTLY

    AT ME? 🙂

    3a. "NO DISRESPECT HERE" but, by respectful, do you mean POLITICALLY

    CORRECT? IF SO, i will have a difficult time with some of that, as POLITICALLY

    CORRECT, is about to, and already HAS, to some extent UNDERMINED OUR GREAT COUNTRY, "THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA"!! 🙂

    3b. I HOPE my comments are CIVILIZED, as i am ONLY SPEAKING FROM THE HEART, and as a 71 year old man, i would hope that would be civilized? (although, i must admit, i still don't understand this NEW MATH? 🙂

    GOD BLESS AMERICA!! (and our children) 🙂

    very interesting. I know Doni wants to get all information correct, and we thank her. Sometimes I would like to call the City "fathers" something that might not be "correct", so I will refrain. I'm too old to run for office. Ha.

    • Avatar rmv says:

      thank you pmarshall, i also shall refrain from this

      point on, but just for the record, if any of them,

      the county supervisors, or anyone else cares to know,

      i always have been, and ALWAYS WILL BE,

      Rex Maurice Vaughn!

      GOD BLESS AMERICA (and her children too) ! 🙂
