"It was clear who was running the circus, but still no idea about their identity."

FD Chief and City Councilman Dimitri Rousseau saw his proposal for a Race Track for Motor Sports passed with majority approval. A stipulation was made that land should be available for it's establishment but the Chief is hopeful on this issue.

"I have the city's economic development and interests in mind and with this proposal, we will see local businesses benefiting greatly: From mechanics and garages who could outfit and customize and build race cars or motorbikes as well as  working in the pit stop, to local restaurants and bars such as El Toro Loco providing food and beverages at the race event and after party. not to mention City Hall will be granting permits and drawing in profit from that.

The After Party hosted on the beach, will involve live musical acts and entertainment, plenty of food and drink. It's possible a racing goods store will open, under private investors who backed the proposal..I am in talks with a member of the City Council for land to be allocated and we hope t...

The on going saga of the Mayor and her people versus the Police Department continues even after a meeting specifically adjourned to resolve issues among addressing proposals, did not manage to successfully conclude an agreement between both parties.

Mayor Brucato was visibly disappointed as were the Governor and City council members---including Police Chief Jade- Ramirez as disagreements over Agenda items Two, Four and Five were required to be re-visited at a later date.

The PD had sought to provide a framework for the Community Review Board and their own Internal Affairs but mistakes plagued the document and the Mayor and  City Council were unable to consider signing under suchcircumstances and so another meeting at a later date  will see City Hall convene to see if progress can be made for  the agreement between the Mayor and PD.

It was a nice day of may when i awaited Officer K. for a genuine interview in the hope to share some light on the recent issues between the PD and the Mayor Office.
Officer K. was off duty and in his own right to express sincerely his own ideas the moment we met.

At first he seemed a common man in his youth, casual clothing and shades. You couldn't  have told he was a cop except for the slight composed and disciplined language of his body and the confidence in his words.

We went to the seaside hoping a comfortable place regretting to not have some beach clothes to enjoy the nice day and empty shore looking like normal tourists before to finally sit on a jetty nearby to finally record the interview.

Of course Officer K. is a fictional name, a measure felt right given his line of work and the messy situation in the power places of Santa Ramona. He smiled founding it a reminder of man in black. We were finally ready and in front of that beautiful sea my first question was on the way.

During my visit, it seemed like some were expecting and dreading my arrival. Hah, can't say that I blame them too much. It comes with the territory! I noticed a couple of people as I stopped in the vendor booth area to grab a candy apple and a funnel cake. After I finished my treats that were totally worth the calories and guilt by the way, I pulled out my cellphone and  almost instantly, many of the people I had my eyes on fled. Others dodged me as I made my rounds. 
Just as I thought the project was bust and I'd have no material to pull this off, I started encountering people who weren't as camera shy! There were so many but I had to narrow it down to those who stood out and caught my eye the most.

 Mercedes- Slay or Nay?

I was approached and handed a flier from a beautiful blonde woman with an accent that was just as spicy( can I say that?), chic, and alluring as her outfit. 
I'm usually not one for sombreros outside of themed parties but I'm loving it on her. The top, skirt, and...
