  1. Scratching my headTuesday, April 05, 2011

    If you ever wonder why the parking division is so messed up just remember who set it up John Morgan. As a civilian employee he would show up in his Special Police uniform complete with sidearm. To make matters worse after John Rowe could not handle his duties as the supervisor of the detectives, he was put in charge of parking. This is why the parking division is in the state it is.

  2. Heard Rowe is retiring. going to run out the door while he still has a grip on his pension. John, you going to replenish the money in the sfe before you leave?
