On days like this, Oakley should open its new tax payer paid rec center. You would think a city manager getting a six figure salary, for his qualifications, would have the brains to do this.

Get. With. The. Program.

You mean his LACK of qualifications, don’t you?

If you want to cool off, stay home and run your A/C or go to a mall where there’s a lot more to do than sit around driving people crazy in senior centers. Sunvalley Mall has restaurants, coffee shops and places to just sit, relax and people-watch.

No. I want the rec center open on hot days. Some people can’t afford A/C. You sound like a cheap republican christian. Your probably the fat Sunvalley patron who sits at grand court to use the free wifi. Get out of here with your B.S. and shove crime infested Sunvalley down your esophagus.

Unacceptable, you moron! You’re the BSer! I know Willis and she’s a REPUBLICAN but not a Christian. So there! And she’s 5’10” and weighs 145 lbs. which hardly makes her “fat.” She has the right to express herself on here and you have no right to blast her.

By the way, if I were you, I’d stop kicking back those stiff ones! So, put down that bottle and behave like a gentleman!

If someone chooses to live in an area where the temperature hit over 100 degrees in the summer and they can’t afford A/C, then they are living in the wrong place. Colorado or Wyoming might be the place for them to go.
