(Ventura, CA) -- An Orange County man accusing a priest of sexually molesting him as a child says many of the incidents took place in Ventura County almost 30 years ago. The "Ventura County Star" reports Lee Bashworth filed suit last week against Reverend Michael Wempe alleging he molested him several times when Bashworth was living in Westlake Village and Thousand Oaks. Reverend Wempe was working at Saint Jude Church of Westlake and Sacred Heart of Ventura during that time. Bashworth says he went public to support other victims. he's in spain with george -- lets work together......... (188.8.131.52) Has anybody heard from the honorable Judge OverTurnERO? -- The General (184.108.40.206) 707 trying being honest for a change. you want to shut down a 2 billion dollar airport and spend billions of tax payer dollars to move it into some one elses back yard. I voted yes on W and my taxes have not gone up.
so much for the newport beach elites lies........
-- lets work together........ (220.127.116.11) Boeing,Am I supposed to be upset if property values get really high in OC? I hope that I have to live with that burden.
-- RSMDAVE (18.104.22.168) quietinlaguna, you're going to give boingo a migraine with all of those pertinent questions. Facts tend to confuse him. Try to keep it a little lighter for Mission Viejo's own village idiot.
-- AirportKiller (22.214.171.124) Boeing: How are you defining "frequent flier"? How many trips per month? Just how many frequent fliers are you talking about? What is the breakdown of their destinations? How many of these trips are not being adequately serviced today by John Wayne, or Long Beach, or Ontario? What would be their net gain in travel convenience if El Toro were built? You mentioned "frequent fliers", now back it up.
-- Quietlaguna (126.96.36.199) Boeing--You are the new Yogi Berra. You say without El Toro the county's economy will be so bad that nobody will be able to live here anymore. Yes, that's just what happens in bad economies--prices go through the roof.
-- Repboy (188.8.131.52) By the time the first shovel full of dirt is lifted out of El Toro in order to create a park, we will all be dead and burried! Too bad for all of Orange Counties frequent business fliers, and too bad for our counties economy. Soon we will all have to move out, since it will become another Newport Rhode Island, reserved for only the super rich! -- Boeing 707 (184.108.40.206) Boeing--Excuse me for staying awake in the 6th grade when we learned to spell. News flash for you: The "powers that be" (the people) DID "step in and do what was right for El Toro" (Measure W). Sorry you had to find out this way.
-- Repboy (220.127.116.11) Boeing: That's so typical of you narrow-minded economically ignorant pro-airport saps. You think that layout is the only thing negative about the airport plan. It doesn't matter what the layout is if you can't generate the revenue necessary to cover costs and pay the bondholders. Show us how ANY airport plan does that.
-- Quietlaguna (18.104.22.168) Hopefully, the powers that be will step in and do what's right for El Toro, and turn it in to a wonderful airport! -- Boeing 707 (22.214.171.124) which is a total joke, because everyone voting for it has absolutely no idea that they will never see a thing! -- Boeing 707 (126.96.36.199) Sorry Repboy, This post doesn't have spell check, did you get out your Websters to find out the correct spelling? I'm sure you did. Your little, or should I say extravagant park is something we will never see in this county, we might as well go back to the airport plan! Both sides have a dumb plan for the base, the airport, because they didn't think it out, and lay it out to the best advantage, the park, which is a total joke, because everyone voting for it has absolutely no idea that they will -- Boeing 707 (188.8.131.52) Boeing--If I thought for one second you knew what you were talking about, I might take you seriously. But as you have been wrong every step of the way so far, there is no reason to change my belief. You did come up with two inventive spellings of "remnant", though in successive posts. That was interesting.
-- Repboy (184.108.40.206) cry me a river chumley. so now what are you really try8ing to say. the people around the base are not allowed to have a say. newport has the green light and caps on JWA. el toro has measure w. like I said cry me a river....
-- lets work together......... (220.127.116.11) If Irvine gets El Toro the only reminent of a park you'll ever see is a swing set, placed on an acre of land. It doesn't matter if it is zoned park, the developers can find all kinds of ways around it, including turning it into an air park! -- Boeing 707 (18.104.22.168) how very transparent. you worry about developement. yet want a enormous belching airport. irvine is the one entity who will build the park. getting control of the land away from the county is the best thing that can happen. OH and I'm not against JWA's caps either. even though you want to wreck my quality of life in this county. those planes will fly both north and south from the center of the county. a central park is the way to go. irvine annexation here we come.
-- lets work together........ (22.214.171.124) Boingo...I loved your analogy about Huntington Beach and Waikiki (note the spelling). I must point out one inconsistency though. Huntington's sister beach city does not have the teeming schools of toilet fish and E coli that the money grubbing developers and politicians have graced our beaches with. How envious they must be.
-- AirportKiller (126.96.36.199) Boeing--I am writing slowly so you will understand: The land is zoned for Park. If you ever spent a moment reading W before, you wouldn't be so confused now. Poor you.
-- Repboy (188.8.131.52) That's just great, annex the base to Irvine, and nobody will get anything, including a park! If you really want a park, the land should be left in county juisdiction, not the city of Irvine, they will grab it all up, and we will never see any remenant of a great park! -- Boeing 707 (184.108.40.206) in january you will have no board majority. and right now you have no board majority. on april 23 the navy will look at what the county puts on the table for "W" related wants and the rest will be sold. it's a dead.
-- lets work together............ (220.127.116.11) Boeing--(cont) Your airport idea is dead. As to HB turning into Waikiki redux, those passengers aren't going to fly into El Toro or JWA, they'll fly into LAX (or a cheap JetBlue into LGB).
-- Repboy (18.104.22.168) Boeing--God, I have missed you! What you don't know is, as always, epic. The County would be a DEFENDANT in a lawsuit to overturn W, since the County Counsel wrote the title and summary and it has been voted by the people as law. In the meantime, Coad is working with Wilson and Spitzer to get the County out of the airport biz and get the land annexed to Irvine (do you read the paper at all?). Only Smith is clinging to the dead dream. The Navy is ready to parcel and sell the land on April 24. You -- Repboy (22.214.171.124) If the powers that be want something, they will certainly do anything to get it. Orange County is curently doing a balancing act between urbanization, and remaining a bedroom community, and from what I saw on a drive through Huntington Beach today, it is rapidly becoming another Wakiki Beach, and I could visualize Coast Highway lined with high rise hotels all the way to Long Beach.
-- Boeing 707 (126.96.36.199) The fight over El Toro is going to go on for years to come! The County will find a loophole to overturn W, there will be another vote, it will be protested, on and on, until those in power finally get what they want, and who knows what that is at this point, so don't count your parks until the airports are hatched. Eventually everyone will realize we do need a new airport. Until then keep up with the bickering, in the end it will do you no good. If the powers that be want something, they will ce -- Boeing 707 (188.8.131.52) I think if the general moved to the north of the runways he could himself create those wind conditions...necesit atinga renogotiation of the entire nimby beach agreement. and also could bring some relief to the people to the north.....
