I would love to help but I still have no job myself.
Email me...I'll buy you a ticket if you want to go.
Shamrock, you are a sweetheart...
Lots of good correia jokes at the comedy fundraiser.
When did this idea take place...I had no idea....I would have gone.
Is a fund being set up for contributions as well?
Who is def. running for Mayor this year. Sullivan or Kilby?? One of them should go for it again.!!
Not Kilby. He has too many ties to what we don't want having input ie: herrens.
Who is "WE". Is it the lunatic fringe?
I can spot you a mile away. Keri you are a loser. IE: 9:48. Please get a life and stop hating the Herrens for you failing life.
Sorry, not Keri. Kilby should not have had Mike Herren back his run for mayor. The Guy is mentally unstable.
I liked Brad Kilby regardless of who was or wasn't backing him, Eric Poulin and Dave Sullivan too are okay in my book. I have to think that if any of them came out and ran it would be their race to lose. I think they would certainly have a better shot than the current crop of Steve Camara, Cathy Ann Viveiros and Ray Hague. I like Ray on the Council but don't see him in the mayor's role. Steve Camara well, speaking of lunatic fringe, a good councilor but way too far out there at times. Cathy? She voted with the mayor all last year and is just changing her tune recently as are other Councilors like Mike Lund, etc. They are distancing themselves from Correia now because they know his poll numbers are in the toilet. Those aren't people that are out for the city, just themselves.
The Kilbys and Herrens are like family. They go back a long time when Kilby was a teacher at Durfee some 15 years ago. I was also a student of Brad Kilby. He was a great teacher and coach. No one should be making a judgment about Kilby base on a dislike for Mike Herren. I cannot think of a more active community person than Kilby. He is sincere and cares about Fall River. By the way he is also very smart guy.
"Not Kilby. He has too many ties to what we don't want having input ie: herrens."07 March, 2009 09:48Enough already with this nonsense. Kilby ran for mayor. The Herren's supported him. Some simple facts.Kilby has known the Herren family for years upon years. Al Herren was a State Rep. for 10 years and never lost an election. As a candidate for public office would anyone not want to have the opportunity to pick the brain of an individual with that track record ? Plus Al is a blast to talk to. There is obviously a lot of dislike among the bloggers for Mike Herren. Like it or not Mike is one of the most well known people in Fall River. I know many of you have never had a face to face conversation with him but I have. One on one , about politics. Guess what? It's worth it. He has great energy and has a ton of ideas all geared at making Fall River a better place. Brad is obviously a smart guy. Another thing he is is loyal to his friends, both old and new. That is a plus people, not a minus. JT
Another thing he is is loyal to his friends, both old and new. That is a plus people, not a minus. JT07 March, 2009 15:41Exactly! A contiuation of the status quo. Can we afford this during the upcoming election?
If the Hurricane ran for mayor he would win in a landslide!!
Anon 17:33What the hell are you talking about ? " a continuation of the status quo" ? Do you even know what the "status quo" means? It means things remaining as is.Kilby has been out of office for two years. How is that "status quo" ?
If the Hurricane ran for mayor he could kiss his job at WSAR goodbye. As if they would actually allow one of their employees to run against King Bob.
Al Herren was the chairman of the energy comm. and was also a member of the House, Ways, and Means Comm. Like JT has stated, at one time he was one of the most powerful State Reps we have had in years. Give me a break. If you speak with Al, you will realize that the man is very intelligent. The apple does not fall far from the tree. Mike is right there. He voice was heard loud and clear. The firefighters would be doing much better with Al Herren as Mayor. Go for it Al.
This is a joke right?
Anonymous said... This is a joke right?07 March, 2009 20:04You are 100% correct. This blog is a joke.
Again the blog has been hijacked by Herren. What a needy loser.
Oh, my God! How cool would it be if Al Herren ran for Mayor! I know what his slogan would be: "I want to be mayor so I'll have a shorter distance to not go to work." Right Al? LOL He could appoint Mike as the chief of police - nobody has as much first-hand knowledge about the law as Mike Herren. LOL
Last time I saw Al Herren he did not look like he was in any condition to run to the nearest exit, never mind run for mayor. As for Mike Herren he is probably about as mature as a 14 year old. Combine that with the obvious problems he wrestles with, Not exactly candidate material
re: Herren for Mayor, I thought Fall River was trying to raise the bar, not lower expectations.
it would definitely raise the "BAR" !!
Back when The Herald news was printing WSAR editorials..Lisa Stratton was trying to get an afternoon talk show on WSAR to go with her other blatantly based media job.Karams said she'd get the show if The HN endorsd Correia.Lisa gave Correis the endorsement, but trhe Karams welched on the deal and gave the show to Hurricane. They already had the endorsement, so they decided they didn't have to pay off.That's why HN hates Correia
I don't think the Herald News "hates" Correia, as you say. They are merely reporting on all the stupid shit he is doing...it isn't their fault Correia gives them so much material to work with.
If anyone is doubting the popularity and power of the Hurricanes show just look where anti establishment mayoral canidate Will Flanagan spent his first advertising dollars.This silly boycott of WSAR is a joke Advertisers are lined up..Hurricane has expanded the demo graphic and increased the advertising geography.The Herald News could be out of business by April at WSAR sales are up..dont shoot the messenger
Since wsar is the only local radio station to advertise on , where did you expect him to? Unlike the mayor he doesn't get free daily advertising.
Mikey you keep expanding the "demo graphic". What an idiot.
Another false Hurricane sighting...Big suprise..but this little piece of info will be .The Karams are BUYING the HERALD NEWS!!
Good luck with that it will really go under if they buy it.
THE KARAMS ARE LOOKING TO BUY THE HERALD NEWS !!!!
Wow....more 2am brilliance
I don't think the karams would appreciate your tips that they are looking to buy the herald - they like to do everything back room style. Your job could be in jeopardy.
Luckily there are cross ownership rules which would likely prevent that disaster from ever happening. Congress probably had Bernie Sullivan in mind when they recently upheld cross ownership rules.http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/consumerfacts/reviewrules.html
Thank you, FCC!!!
Thank you wsar for outing your callers on the show. You should start asking very caller their name rank and serial number when they call.
WSAR HAS PLENTY OF CALLS>>IF THEY DONT LIKE THEY CAN LEAVE IT
I agree all their callers should be required to state their name since they are so against anyone remaining anonymous.
ALL CAPS must be doing their research on the blogs and herald news for their show.
Hey I heard Hurrican graced the firefighters with his presence at whites on Friday??
I didn't see him there
hmm, I could have sworn he said he was there and talked to firefighters and that they also emailed and called him. Maybe he should divulge who those anonymous calls were since that is what he bases his research on.
Scamrock Minister of Misinformation..hurricane said he talked to a handful of fire fighters and a few called and emailed him.Infact i was with the Hurricane when a few of them came by his house late night.They were thanking him for his balanced style on his radio show and having a few beers.The FR Firefighters and Hurricane are tight period.
Hey SCAMROCK you talk about Hurricane everyday..he is in your blogs regularly..you obviously listen to his show..why not just go on his show???? YOU know his show has all the action it would be good for you and your blog to go on.Are you scared??Are you nervous??Are you afraid of the big time??Hurricane has invited you..Why not??
Here is the thing, I value Herren not knowing me more than I give an eff about my blog ratings, which, by the way, I am pretty impressed with...so no, I do not plan to go on the show. When his fanatics stop threatening people and rebutting adversarial comments with "oh yeah you wouldn't say that to his face because you know what would happen," perhpaps I would reconsider.
I would love to try and see Hurricane run against Bob Correia, Hurricane would get spanked!
Hurricane knows who Scamrock is his firefighter buddies told him and he has a friend at the herald news that told him who some of the bloggers but he doesnt care .He knows the game and alot of the nasty stuff he uses for motivation but ultimately its about the buzz.Different people get motivated by different ways if you really knew Michael you would understand this.2 more things Hurricane would never be dumb enough to threaten or hurt a blogger and mayor is too small and local i have been told he is going to run for congress against Mcgovern as a independent.How do you like them apples?????
One other thing Scamrock the popularity of your b log has alot to do with Hurricane.Face it half the posts are about him the other half are about what he talks about.Get Real Scamrock!!!
"Face it half the posts are about him the other half are about what he talks about"I am certain that one and possibly 2 of my 150 posts have been about Herren, that is true but that is far from 1/2, it's acutally 1/75. Most of the things I talk about are current events, and I am pretty sure Herren and I aren't the only ones talking about them.
So sad how herren begs for attention. What a loser!
I heard from a friend that works at wsar his callers will now have to give their real names when they call in,
Herren running against McGovern!!! HAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAH
running from the law is more likely
Maybe I missed something but how do the firefighters know who Shamrock is, do they have access to the "secret bloggah codes" on the intraweb? Makes sense that the 'Caine would be tight with some firefighters, if I was him I'd want some firefighters around too in case I had another "accident"...as far as Anon 22:56 saying "it's all avout the buzz".....do I really need to say anything further, that one just writes itself....
Yeah herren bad mouthed them every chance he got when he burnt his father's house down! "took them 45 minutes to get to my house" Whatever.
First off i am a fire fighter..second i dont know Herren that well..thirdly i did respond to that fire and it was one of the most regretful days we have had on the job..the civillian dispatchers screwed that up big time sending us to barnes st as opposed to bond st.there a three stations within a mile of that house and 13 minutes to get water on that house is a tragedy..finally the fire inspectors and the state police dogs investigated the fire for accelerants and none were found it was an old house and the fire started in the walls in the basement.Whatever issues the bloggers have with mr herren please leave us out of it.He has a difficult job and we have no problems with how he does it!1
Thank you for the information. A family losing their home is a tragedy and I will delete any rude comments regarding the tragedy. Also please do not confuse bloggers~me with commenters.
This blog is a joke. Too bad because the topic is important!!
If you don't like it don't come back. Don't be a jackass.
