This is what happens when two employees screw up. First thing, both these people are employees of the County. We pay their wages with our taxes.
Peterson looks like some guy caught in a dead end relationship, apparently not wise enough to knock this off, and put his prolific texting talents to good use on some e dating website, would have done him good to find someone like him that would have accepted him for who he was no strings. But no he kept on pumping nickels into the slot machine convinced one day he was going to pull that handle and hit the jackpot. Men in this same position take note of my advise. Please!
Then we have her, talented young and on her way up, clearly when you look at the pictures, Peterson is older and she is surrounded by young healthy men in the prime of their lives. Obviously she was creeped out and didn’t want to “do” some older married guy with kids. But for unknown reasons she allows this unhealthy and unprofessional relationship to advance. Youthful confusion, or grasping for that brass ring. Nobody knows but her. Its strange that in a County populated with nearly half a million people she couldn’t round up one single competent person with the proper advise. This could have been easily handled by a professional advisor.
Then its discovered by “the Boss” and its over and they are both packing their bags, as they should be.
Youthful ignorance and the usual bad advise one gets from those fair weather friends gets the better of her, she sues, she could have just walked away, but if she thinks she is blackballed now, this law suit will follow her for the rest of her professional life. She had the better part of her life left to start over, pull a geographical, relocate, and being wiser the second time around would have been able to avoid these kinds of snags. And with her talents would have very likely made it. But now the law suit, a short term reward, that is surely going to be the guarantor of many unhappy results in the future. The attorneys assertion that this was pretextual, kind of stretch, she wasn’t in custody, or detained, she was an employee, and the accused was a fellow employee. But hey if the attorneys do their job and I think they will, she will walk off with a fat check, not the jackpot either party wanted.
Oh well, just another unwanted distraction from the disastrous fiscal state the County is in.

I have known Rory most of my adult life. If you stay on the road long enough sooner or later your luck runs out. Thank God he isnt dead. My cousin had nearly the same upper body injuries, it took him two years to get better. And on top of it he ended up with a serious morphine habit. I remember back in the 70's the Sunburst people had an old army truck that would fill the entire road. If you came around a blind turn and it was there you had better have your brakes in good working order. The trick to survival is to at all times know that on a bicycle your basicaly naked. And that you have to maintain defensable space around you at all times. Know the road as in where the blind spots and dangerous places are and respect them. And as far as motorists and cyclists blaming each other, remember that we all should share the road. And respect and love each other. *Let us be of good cheer, remembering that the misfortunes hardest to bear are those which never happen. -James Russell Lowell*
