Scanner Reports 1-31-14
updated: Jan 31, 2014, 7:00 AM

By Roger the Scanner Guy

Thank Dog it's FRYday, and it looks like we're getting a little rain which is nice. Looks like the Film Festival is here once again. That sounds like a good thing to do this week. Then of course there's the Super Bowl. I realized I axed a little too early for advice on "good for me snacks" because I have all kinds of Food Fantasies going thru my noggin for the Super Bowl; Hot chili Mac Salad to Crock Pot stews, pizza, Burgers, burgers, burgers. I'm not really a big sports nut but I find it interesting that both teams playing each other come from states where Marijuana is now legal. Should be an interesting match.

I saw the petition to Deport Justin Bieber on Wednesday even tried to sign it but there was some problem getting my e-mail approved; it did not go thru. Then I saw the thread on Edhat and changed my mind. I think Justin would fit in perfectly here. He might get deported but I think he's going to get a warning and be allowed to stay. Maybe he will move here maybe he won't so what he's got plenty of money and can support himself. I don't see where there's a problem. Santa Barbara isn't just for certain people Santa Barbara is part of America and still at least partially free. I think Neverland would be a much better place than Hope Ranch to move to, although I think he would be protected well wherever he moves.

Some might think I want to take advantage of the situation and write about his activities. I've had the opportunity to write about a couple actors over the years, they were "suicidal subject" calls. But I find that sort of thing to be a "Cheap Shot" and not the way I would like to be known. I have also had the opportunity to run a couple local politicians thru the mud on minor traffic infractions while I might have mentioned the crime I did not mention the names. If I did that then I should just post everyone's names. It would only be fair. But then again that's not what I do.

Neverland is big and there's plenty of room to raise HELL. If I was his age and had that kind of money I might be doing the same thing. I bet the reason why he's thinking of moving here is because many well-known people live here already and have for years comfortably without being rousted by the locals. Sounds like he wants to get a big place so he could raise HELL on it; maybe build himself a race track, at least then he might not be bringing it to our streets. I wish I had money and could move somewhere nice. I have lived where I have 16 years and most of it has been good but sometimes the neighbors start thinking they are in charge of everyone's life here and suddenly there's rules that a friend can't park here but all their friends can. Or I cannot have a BBQ because my BBQ Smoke bothers them but they can have a BBQ. It really pisses me off but I try not to rock the boat but sometimes I feel like tipping the sonofabeach over. NIMBYS are everywhere.

If I had Justin's money, I'd buy Paseo Nuevo close all the stores and move on in! In fact if I had Justin's money a couple of my neighbors might have to move outta state because I'd be a might tempted to hire a bunch of thugs to move their little tushies on down the road Amen. That's enough of that. The Jerks are taking over my Brain again we can't have that.

Heard a call the other night about a woman going Door to Door selling furniture, then a couple hours later there was another call about another woman going Door to Door selling Jewelry. What the HECK is up with that? I picture this tiny woman attempting to balance a sofa on her head going Door to Door. I wonder if the stuff was hot. Maybe it was her own personal stuff and she was having to move outta her place.

Reminds me of this time my Mom and her Boyfiend were driving to Florida. The car took a scrap somewhere in Tennessee, some small town. A man came out with the Tow truck and towed it into town where there was a big garage with a lot of guys hanging around playing Dueling Banjos. The town itself had a garage, (don't they all) with a gas pump made in the 60's that said "Ethel" on it. A post office, restaurant, a small store, no hotel or motel you stay here you rent a room in a rooming house. There was a little park in the middle of town with a bench American flag on a pole behind the bench I know all this because they told me all about it when they got home. Anyway their car, a big hulking white Cadillac with Illinois plates got towed to the town's garage. (They never found out the name of the town, HELL maybe it really wasn't there.) While they were at the garage they noticed all these men in there, taking apart a pickup truck. The truck had bullet holes all over it and some blood on it. One fella took out the 8-Track, another the C.B., another guy took the Antenna. The hood was open, parts were being taken from the engine, and someone was taking the tires. They were all talking about what they wanted from the truck; what parts they was claiming and they were saying some pretty rotten things about the owner of the truck, "Sonofabeach got what he deserved." etc., while my Mom and her Boyfriend watched wondering what was going on? Well the auto mechanic told them their car would be fixed in the morning and sent them over to the Rooming house to rent a room and neither slept a wink all night; they just wanted to get the HELL out of there. The next morning my Mom's friend goes out and gets a cup of coffee and takes a walk. He walks over to the little park with the park bench and flag pole there's a man sitting there, he sits on the other side and starts making small talk. "Beautiful morning, you have a nice town here", things like that. The guy says nothing to him he's wondering what's his problem? He turns and notices the guy kinda slumped like there was something wrong. My Mom's friend reaches out to touch the fellas shoulder at the same time axing him if he's ok and the guy falls over. He's got bullet holes all over him. Scared the HELL outta my Moms friend just as soon as he could they got in that car and got the HELL outta that town. They went around Tennessee on the way back! I don't know why I was reminded of that story but I was. Weird how things just sorta pop into your head.
