From the President:
A Happy New year to all members, active personnel and retirees. 2021 brings a new U.S. new president, the COVID vaccine and unfortunately, the cancelation of the PBA Valentine’s Dinner/Dance that was scheduled for next month. I was really hoping to have the event, but we just have not reached that point. I did reserve February 12, 2022 for next year. I look forward to the annual PBA member’s BBQ later this year.
As you may have seen in the Farsider, this year began on a down note, with the loss of Jay Wendling, Fred Esparza and Bill Sims. They were friends to many, partners to others and PBA family members. I salute them all on behalf of the PBA for their service to the Department and this City. Sadly, I add George De La Rocha to the list of the departed, as I just learned of his passing this morning.
Respects to the San Jose PD men and woman lost in 2020:
John Martorano (Jan), Mervin Pierce (Jan), Robert Avila (Mar), George Springer (Mar)
Phyllis Trussler (May), Ron Ledesma (June), Tom Shigemasa (June), Ron Daly (July), George Graham (Sep)
John Kregel* (Oct), Jess Sanchez (Oct), Steve Windisch Sr.*(Nov)
During your careers, many friendships grew while working the streets, the bureau, and during the off-duty times. After retirement, many members relocated throughout this great country. The distance and the passage of time has not diminished the connection many had. That being said, your PBA would be honored to post notifications to the membership of losses as difficult as it me be; family does that.
Wholehearted kudos to all that sent your messages of support to Nancy Becknall. It was most appreciated and uplifting for her and Chaplain Jim. Thank you.
Happy Birthday wishes to all the January celebrants! Mike Fehr, Leroy Pyle and I update the list as we receive current information. Apologies to the members that were omitted, I appreciate you reaching out and letting me know.
Take care all and be safe,

As all Americans know, new U.S. presidents don’t head to the White House
WATCH: Biden’s Awkwardly Stand in the Cold After Being
Locked Out Of White House Because They Fired Trump Usher
His few supporters should be so proud!!!
2pm yesterday marked Biden’s 50th hour in office. How are all of my liberal friends feeling “If I even have any left…because you know they won’t dare to comment now!
Let’s take a look at the Biden/Harris administration —
Executives from major US corporations are eagerly raising their hands at the front of class hoping to get called on by President Biden. The problem they think they can answer? How to speed up a vaccine rollout that is wayyyy behind schedule.
Why I Quit Farcebook!
I GOT BOOTED FROM FACEBOOK FOR COPYING A GRAPHIC I FOUND ON FACEBOOK!
THAT, AND OF COURSE, THE FACT THAT ALL SOCIAL MEDIA SHOWED THEIR LIBERAL SIDE WHEN THEY DELETED PRESIDENT TRUMP’S ACCOUNT AND PURGED MOST CONSERVATIVE ACCOUNTS. FACEBOOK, TWITTER, AND THEIR AMAZON KEEPERS ALSO PURGED THE ONLY SITE THAT ALLOWED ALL CONTENT, REGARDLESS OF POLITICS, PARLER.
I LOOK FORWARD TO THE RETURN OF PARLER!
I’m selling my white privilege card. It’s over 75 years old but is in
mint condition. It has never been used. Reason for selling is that it hasn’t done a damn thing for me! No free college, no free food, no free housing, current political disdain, etc.Prefer cash but would be willing to do an even trade for a race card which seems much more widely accepted!
Interested? Contact me on my cell phone that I pay for every
month… Serious buyers only!
