Apparently, or maybe obviously, I inserted a rather risqué video in the last Farsider. Paul Kelly, President of the POA and speaking for the membership, took offence to the video and had the POA attorney write Ernie to demand that I remove the POA logo from our site.

Re: Removal of any SJPOA Materials from PBA Website
Dear Mr. Alcantar:
The undersigned represents the San Jose Police Officers’ Association (SJPOA). SJPOA
appreciates all that you do as an organization to provide support for our retirees. We have been proud to partner with you in this regard for many years.
Yesterday, however, we became aware of two links to videos on a March 3, 2021 posting
accessible from the PBA website. The videos are inappropriate and should have never been posted. They serve no legitimate purpose.
As of this morning, it appears that the videos have been taken down from the PBA website. We also note, and appreciate, your letter of apology with regards to the now-removed videos. We feel that these are steps in the right direction.
At this time, however, until we satisfy ourselves that there are no other inappropriate or
discriminatory materials on your website, and until we believe there are protocols in place to ensure inappropriate images, text or posts are not posted in the future, we must ask that you remove any SJPOA badges or emblems, and any links to SJPOA websites, that currently appear on the PBA website.
We ask that you take these steps immediately.
Very truly yours,
MESSING ADAM & JASMINE LLP

I can only imagine what the attorney’s fees were for writing this letter! I asked him, he refused…..
How much did it cost you, the members, to have an attorney write that letter?
Wouldn’t it have saved the membership money if Paul would have just settled for the written request to Ernie. That worked. As soon as Ernie relayed the request, the video was taken down!
|I GOOGLED IT!
How much a lawyer will charge the membership for writing a legal letter depends on the size of the firm, where you live, and how complicated your case is. According to our database of legal fees, an attorney practicing on their own will charge anywhere between $750 and $1,200 to write and send a demand letter. A smaller law firm will charge anywhere from $1,000 to $1,500 for their services.
In any case, I did put a large XXX on the link and assumed that a sensitive and reasonable person would know to avoid the XXX link, or at least accept the consequences. My bad! I deleted it and offer my sincere apologies to Paul and the offended POA members…..
Thank you Leroy: Could you put out the latest update: I’m just disgusted and sick over the horrible way Larry and I have been treated at this Encompass rehab in Sioux Falls, SD. I need help in finding out my rights, Medicare benefits, etc. Thank you. Marie
LARRY AND I NEED YOUR HELP
Gratitude abounds to Select Specialty at Sanford Hospital in Sioux Falls where he arrived on a medical flight January 14th, after 30 days at Monument Hospital, including 19 days in ICU. He was in extreme critical condition, on a vent, feeding and tracheal tubes, high WBC at 40 due to infections, kidney failure and brain stroke in front lobe caused during a heart stent procedure on Christmas Eve. Select Specialty at Sanford within 27 days got him off the vent, tracheal tube removed which was infected with bacterial bugs that infected his lungs and throat, not alert, couldn’t speak or move and needed kidney dialysis as his creative was at 40, kidney failure. Through their professional medical and kind, loving, hard working PT, OT and speech therapists on February 10th Larry graduated to an extensive brain stroke rehab, he was ready. Unfortunately he was transferred to a PATIENT REHABILITATION HOSPITAL in Sioux Falls called Encompass, nationwide and just came to South Dakota in June of 2020 not a brain stroke specialty rehab hospital. He still needed a heart valve replacement, which tires him out during therapies. Again, Encompass is NOT a brain stroke specialty hospital. He’s been there 26 days at $16,000 per day! They are severely understaffed, give very little time to therapy rehab, and do not give Larry the opportunity to learn to speak, walk or cognitively think. I was there being “trained” to take Larry home and I saw first-hand the inadequacy and complete lack of care. I never saw a doctor, nurses had him sitting in the wheelchair daily with no TV, radio, and only popped in to give meds, then ran away to next patient, use a hoist to and from the wheelchair to bed (Select never used a hoist, but a swing board) ratio 8 patients to one nurse. Larry’s dialysis create in was at 2.8, kidney recovery and not needed further dialysis is a 2. After 26 days at Encompass his kidney is failing; from 2.8 to 4.13, UTI infection, feeding tube still in, not flushed, no blood panel to ascertain if infection is in other parts of his body. INFECTION is a major cause of kidney failure!!!! He’ll be released on Tuesday to a “skilled nursing rest-home in Rapid City.” This was a nurse supervisor’s decision during a care conference where some doctor had advised me earlier that Larry will not recover from his brain stroke, they’ve taken him as far as they can, and he’s being shipped to a rest-home. Did I go off on this inhumane SOB. However, I don’t have any rights to get him home with home health, then hospitalized for heart valve replacement at hospital and then to a real brain stroke rehab hospital like Mayo at Rochester or Madonna in Omaha, NE. He’s being transported to Rapid City at my expense (Medicare won’t pay.) The rest-home he’s being transferred to changed their name from Beverly to (can’t tell you) at three locations in Rapid City where in late 90’s the State of SD kicked them out due to so many complaints of elder abuse. I know the place as I worked hard as my mom’s POA to get her the hell out of there and back home to Larry and I. Encompass will only discharge him to a facility where there is 7 day kidney dialysis transport and this place is the only place in this area that has it. Encompass will charge Medicare and Medica a whopping $400,000 to bring him right back to critical condition. Larry will be scheduled with our primary, then outpatient appointments at Monument for heart assessment (hasn’t been assessed for 51 days in Sioux Falls) and kidney specialist then hopefully admitted to the hospital and to a brain specialty rehab hospital. My arms aren’t long enough to continually fight medical and Medicare re benefits. Is there anyone who can help point me in the right direction? Thank you for your continued prayers.
ALWAYS GOOD TO SEE ONE OF OUR OWN DOING WELL. FOR RON, DOING WELL IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT!

1 – Eleven teens die each day because of texting while driving. Maybe it’s time to raise the age of Smart Phone ownership to 21
2 – If gun control laws actually worked, Chicago would be Mayberry, USA
3 – The Second Amendment makes more women equal than the entire feminist movement.
4 – Legal gun owners have 300 million guns and probably a trillion rounds of ammo. Seriously, folks, if we were the problem, you’d know it.
5 – When JFK was killed, nobody blamed the rifle.
6 – The NRA (National Rifle Association) murders 0 people and receives $$$$ 0 nothing in government funds. Planned Parenthood kills 350,000 babies every year and receives $500,000,000 in tax dollars annually.
7 – I have no problem with vigorous background checks when it comes to firearms. While we’re at it, let’s do the same when it comes to immigration, Voter I.D., and candidates running for office.
8 – Folks keep talking about another Civil War. One side knows how to shoot and probably has a trillion rounds. The other side has crying closets and is confused about which bathroom to use. Now tell me, how do you think that would end?
Don’t be afraid to share this. There’s more logic and common sense expressed here than probably anything you have seen on the news today.

They said that?????
God said, “Go down into that valley.” And Adam said,
“What’s a valley?” and God explained it to him.
Then God said, “Cross the river” And Adam said “What’s
a river?” and God explained it to him.
And then God said, “Go over the hill.” And Adam said,
“What’s a hill?” and God explained it to him.
Then God told Adam, “On the other side of the hill,
you will find a cave,” and Adam said, “what’s a cave?”
and God explained that to him.
“In the cave you will find a woman.” And Adam said,
What’s a woman?” So God explained that to him, and
said, “I want you to reproduce.”
And Adam said, “How do I do that?” So God explained it
So off went Adam,
down into the valley,
across the river,
and over the hill,
and into the cave,
and found the woman,
and in about five minutes he was back.
God said angrily, “What is it now?”
And Adam said, “What’s a headache?”

I was in a long line at 7:45 am today at the grocery store that opened at 8:00 for seniors only.
A young man came from the parking lot and tried to cut in at the front of the line, but an old lady beat him back into the parking lot with her cane. He returned and tried to cut in again, but an old man punched him in the gut, then kicked him to the ground and rolled him away. As he approached the line for the third time he said, “If you people don’t let me unlock the door, none of you will ever get in to shop.”
