Monday Odds and Ends - Wells Fargo Championship Edition

News from Wells Fargo Golf - The purge is on, last year Kym Hougham stepped down as the executive director of Charlotte's Wells Fargo Championship after 15 years. Mac Everett long time tournament chairman stepped down after this year's event concluded. 

Last week Paula Burnett the tournament's Volunteer Coordinator (a paid full-time position) resigned. Paula famous for her, pep rally cheer leading jumps (one for each year of the tournament) during volunteer training events, held the position since the tournament began.  

Her email sent to all WFG Volunteers:  


I wanted to share with you that as of today, Friday, June 15, I am resigning my position with the Wells Fargo Championship and will be moving on to the next adventure in my career. 
Words cannot express how blessed I feel to have worked with each of you.  Your dedication and enthusiasm are the reason that the Wells Fargo Championship is one of the BEST tournaments on the PGA TOUR.  I hope that you will continue to help the new Volunteer Coordinator in striving for that same goal.
As I look forward to the future, I hope our paths will cross and that we will be able to work together again.  Please feel free to reach out to me at my new email address:    

All my best,
Paula
Up next for WFG: Negotiation of Wells Fargo's continuing marquee sponsorship.The current sponsorship agreement runs through the 2019 tournament. Typically agreements are worked out well in advance so it will be interesting to see what transpires this summer.

Gary Sobba remains tournament director overseeing staff of 12.
SouthPark Novelty Signs - You never know where Charlotte's next bright idea will show up. But someone thought is was necessary to put SouthPark logo signs atop of street signs at every South Park intersection, about 100 signs total. The only trouble is the two tone signs have faded so only the "South" is visible. Leaving non-local drivers wondering why they are on "South" Sharon Road. As if we didn't have enough Sharons already?

Rodney Monroe - Like a bad penny Charlotte's favorite Cop showed up last week to of all things a LaWana Mayfield event. Proof once again it's not what you know but who you know. After all Loony LaWana is Charlotte's most influential politician a specialist is politicization.

Remember when we talked about crooked officers shooting other officers by accident...and then blaming the suspect? (CMPD Westside)

Take a look at this York County Case. That SWAT guy covered up his shot and they charged the suspect with 1 extra count of murder. This shit happens all the time. York County also had that female sgt that fucked 8 coworkers. That's a CMPD trend, right over the bridge.

How does this cop not get charged with Accidental Death(felony)?

Cedar, what are your thoughts man?

For starters, I don't think the dude was killed. I think he just got wounded, but is okay. So no accidental death charges. Maybe a negative PRD on his record.

Sometimes being a cop, means you gotta take a bullet in the back. If you don't like it, get the fuck out.

Thats crazy shit. Could you imagine shooting a guy, on your team....and then lying about it? If the SWAT is the best, than I would hate to see their worst!

Cops passing female sgts around aint anything new or news worthy. 8 coworkers aint nothing compared to some of CMPDs finest. You should have heard about the little "beach party incident" with our favorite little badge bunny boss.

Beach incident? Badge bunny boss? Please do tell. Haven't heard that story yet....

From what I heard out of North...it involved a certain petite supervisor. She got stabbed by a grill fork, in the chest, while she was cheating with another woman's husband. The wife stabbed her. The guy also worked here at the CMPD.

Those who cant police, train the police. If you cant figure it out, you dont work here.

Train the Police? The boob you are talking about (if I am correct) couldn't train a dog to sit....

We were talking about her a while back during training. We were betting on the over/under of cop fucks that she has been though. I was hearing numbers like 50 and 60.
I can personally account for 11 based off office conversations with brass. Its not as good as a geezer would have you believe. andd she calls you 10 times a day afterwards.

The recent beating of the immigrant ice cream vendor and the arrested perp would be a great basis for a case study on the charmeck (and national) justice system.

Even I was shocked at how many priors he has....even Tara S would blush at Mr. Mackey's record.

@6:38 USE FULL NAMES - QUIT BEING A PUSSY AND NOT PUTTING FULL NAMES OUT THERE!

Anonymous said...

re full names

It was a reference to Tara Servatius, abbreviated for brevity's sake. I figured most Cedar readers wouldnt need that explained.

From her I learned that when a high profile crime was perpetrated in Meck county,
with a quick search on the perpetrator, one could easily see the revolving door of justice and lack of punishment for repeat offenders.

From my count, the kid arrested for beating the immigrant has ~30 arrests just from searching MCSO. Odd too, when you crosscheck against NC DOC it shows him as locked up during some of these arrests.

I wonder if thats an intentional "error" in their database to incorrectly portray longer sentences?

I have no insight to specific people(s), just the system.

Thought Cedar could use that as an interesting starting point for an article.

From years of observation, its those relatively young and repeatedly hand-slapped offenders who are the ones that shoot you in the head on the way to your car in South End, or make a visit to your house while you're at work and the wife's car is parked in the garage.

Cause and Effect.

p.s. all caps is very gauche my dude, not good internetting at all

Some charges are added while someone is already locked up for that event.
I don't know if that explains your reference--maybe it seems they are being arrested for things while already in jail. Also, they may be arrested while in jail for things that happened prior to the current event they have been arrested for because they have been identified now. Or maybe there were errors.

Agree about all caps but also agree it would be better to just use full names. Also, really vulgar language not cool. I remember Tara Servatius' writing but did not pick out "Tara S." as her from your statement. Lots of other reading in the interim.

Red Ventures and ACN are actively recruiting cops to join the ranks of their companies. Why be poor as fuck like some Epicenter moonlighter, when you can make that loot with the brains of ACN?????? If Mike Peacock can rob people of 500 bucks(intro payment)....we all can rob people, too.

Hi Cedar, can you do a story about how C.o.C is putting an HR rep into every internal interview for jobs. Can this department any more black? I don't see any white HR reps in this interview process......JUST SAYIN YO!!!

BE AWARE CMPD/ THE LEADERSHIP IS BLOCKING VACATION TIME AND ROLLING FORWARD WITH A OFFICER SHORTAGE CRISIS. NO ONE CAN RESIGN WITHOUT THREAT OF ARREST FOR ABANDONMENT OF DUTY.

There is no such thing as abandonment of duty. This isn't the military. FFS, stop being a fear monger.

They were fired, not arrested.
If people leave their jobs, they presumably don't care about being fired because they have already quit.
If you're going to have a public tantrum and cite evidence, please read your own citations.

giving raises to low-life people that deserve to be fired
not giving raises to hard-working, honest, skilled officers

no problem with handing out lollipops when there's not an emergency--probably good for morale, too. kids need to know it's safe to talk with 'police.' but you have to make it so that's always true.

Lets put up the gayest officers to do this lipsync battle. I going with my dudes...Ryan Shields, Huber, Micah Ramsey, Chris Greene, and Sloppy Osorio! Go get em girls!

Rumor has it...that if you rub on the bald head of Sgt Meyers, you can see next week's lunch menu at the Federal Reserve Cafeteria. That piece of shit could clean that place out in an hour if he wanted to.

Cedar, I just learned a disturbing stat that the media is not covering. Sex Offenders are moving to Charlotte at alarming rates due to their lax on enforcement and jail time. You could write something up about that maybe. The percentage went up like 30% or something.

If we get the RNC I am going to shove my sub sandwich down Mike Harris's throat like his boytoy's cock. We better see a raise or yall will see our asses.

There even is a Sgt. that still is or was in the Hickory Grove Division (C3) who was married to someone in CFD. She was screwing another officer in Eastway Division (C2) while still married. The name was Amy Watts.
