4.19.21 Hero of the Day: Barton Deiters

Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday; Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Sunday morning on Chuck69.com's socials.


A SPECIAL HERO OF THE DAY!


Name: Barton Deiters
Age: was 56
Occupation: former reporter, Grand Rapids Press and WOOD-TV 8
Last Seen: up in the heavens
Awarded For: excellence in journalism
--


When I walked out of Costco Friday afternoon, I got into my Jeep and my radio started blaring Our Lady Peace's 1997 classic "Superman's Dead". 

When I think of Superman, I think of the superhero who in the eyes of a normal person is mild-mannered newspaper reporter Clark Kent. But after paying a visit to a phone booth, he becomes Superman, the defender of freedom and fighter of evil. 

Barton Deiters was not a superhero, but a mild-mannered reporter who also worked for a newspaper, The Grand Rapids Press for many years. However, his job was eliminated when the paper downsized a few years ago. So, Barton put away the typewriter and moved over to WOOD-TV 8, picking up a microphone.

As a reporter, Barton was tough, often doing reports for WOOD-TV's Target 8. He was a regular at the courthouse where he picked up stories. According to his old station, he was well-liked in the office and was quite professional. He was a comic book fanatic and dressed the part of Clark Kent, minus the muscles and the ability to fly. 

The real people Deiters was a superhero to was his wife of 29 years, Lorena, and two kids. He even called her his "partner in crime". 

What made Barton even more special was the fact that he was human. In 2012, he received a new kidney after waiting on the transplant list for a decade. Just last year, my good friend Darren Gibson from Southpaws went to the Bernie Sanders rally in Grand Rapids just before COVID-19 hit. Lo-and-behold, Barton was there. Darren talked to him, asking if he was covering the event. He admitted that he was there not as a reporter, but as a fan. With all the rumors I've heard about the political leanings of some of WOOD-TV's staff, it was nice to know that he was one of the better ones. 

Of course, Superman had to deal with Kryptonite. For Barton, it was a mosquito. 

Last Fall, Bart was bitten by a mosquito with the West Nile Virus. The disease left him unable to walk or talk and hooked to a ventilator. For eight long months, Barton struggled to regain his strength to be human again. Recently, WOOD-TV 8 showed Barton leave Mary Free Bed Hospital with his family and friends cheering him on. He went home to continue his recuperation. Sadly, he relapsed and died on Friday. 

For 35 years, Barton was the voice of the voiceless here in GR as one of the toughest investigative reporters in the area. Now, he's silenced for good thanks to a mosquito. Thankfully, a longtime friend of Dieters' set up a GoFundMe page to help his family with mounting bills. So far, they've raised over $75,000.

WOOD-TV's competitors have all sent them their deepest condolences as well.

It's a shame when someone who really cares about their fans and viewers succumbs to a disease like West Nile. Barton was one of the most-professional reporters this market and his wife and kids were incredibly lucky to have him as a father and husband. But maybe, just maybe, the Good Lord needed him more than we needed him. 

And how ironic that it was the first time I heard "Superman's Dead" in forever.

P.S. A secondary Hero of the Day is going out to former WOOD-TV reporter and anchor Lynsey Mukomel, who left the TV station on Friday. It was announced today that she will be the new press secretary for Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel. Congrats, Lynsey!

4.15.21 Bee-otches of the Day: the two-party system

Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday; Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Sunday morning on Chuck69.com's socials.

Bee-otched For: keeping us in Afghanistan

If you're graduating from high school this year, congratulations.

Since you were born in 2003 (2002 for the Young 5s crowd), let me tell you what things were like before you were born. Prior to you entering this orb called Earth, cell phones were a little different. They didn't have apps or even access to the internet. Instead, they were only used for making phone calls and texting, though making a text message was kinda tough because people relied on the letters next to the numbers, making abbreviations like "OMG", "BRB" and "WTF" necessary. Many people still went to record stores to buy music, though that was on the way out thanks to faster internet and a thing called "Napster". Ever hear of them? 

In 2003, people listened to artists like 50 Cent, the now-incarcerated R Kelly, J-Lo, Eminem and Nelly. Programs like the original American IdolCSIFriends and The Apprentice dominated TV and "The Lord of the Kings: Return of the King" dominated theaters.

The biggest news story in 2003 was obviously the turmoil between the US and the world, especially 9/11. You weren't born yet when on October 7th, 2001, we invaded Afghanistan to stop the Taliban from giving al-Qaeda a safe space to operate. Obviously, you know why after a long, miserable 20 years, we're stuck there because of the events on 9/11. 

I almost remember 9/11 like it was yesterday. Back then, I watched the dust and smoke rise from the remains of the World Trade Center on an old, heavy, boxy TV set that had a giant tube in there. Remember those? Ever seen one? Anyway, it was a scary day for everybody. I fondly remembered gassing up my car because there were rumors of an oil shortage from 9/11. It never happened. 

One of my fond memories of 9/11 was the fact that for a while, people clinged on to president George W. BusHitler like a sock on a sweater in a dryer with no fabric softener. We supported him. We loved him. We treated him like Jesus. And then, it was off to Iraq.

HUH?!? 

Obviously, We the People started growing a brain. BusHitler seemed to put Osama on the back burner and whisked us all back to Iraq to finish the job his dad started. "Fahrenheit 9/11" was released and Michael Moore woke us up. BusHitler had what it took to stop the atrocity on 9/11 that killed nearly 3,000 innocent souls. But, surprise! His predecessor, Clinton, also should have done his best to stop it from happening, too. After all, he allowed the Taliban to practice their path of destruction on American soil. 

Yes, we were duped, as the old lady from 'F9/11' said. Both Democrats and Republicans approved to get us into these wars and 4,500 Americans and 240,000 civilians all died as a result. The cost of the wars that were started? $2.4 trillion. In other words, almost 13 Elon Musks. 

Well, the war has raged on, though it's not as much headline news as it once was. Yes, it's a war we've forgotten even existed, though we captured Osama and tossed him into the sea a decade ago. A lot has happened since, making us all forget that our troops are still over there. On September 11, 2021, twenty years after all this started, it will be over. The troops will finally come home. Hopefully, for good.

Sadly, there's those who are all crying that we've lost the war since the Taliban - although not as powerful as they once were - is still alive and well. Some say that we're cowards for leaving. The question is, why were we there in the first place? 

You see, this is what happens when we have bad leadership. OK, so Clinton left the White House without a deficit. Great! It's too bad that he allowed Osama and Co. to train on our grounds so they could threaten us. He made it BusHitler's problem and he slept on it. At the end of the day, we all lost. Instead of choosing a true progressive to bring this country back in order in 1992, we elected someone who played a sax on Arsenio and didn't do a whole lot for American workers. Maybe that's why when I was 21, I had to choose from staying in northern Michigan where I was probably going to be fired anyway or work for an asshole who fucked me over for a decade with lies, backstabbing and gaslighting. Of course, Reagan deserves an asskicking too because of him busting unions and lowering taxes for the wealthy. 

On this upcoming September 11, my fellow 18-year-olds, you'll know what it's truly like to live without war. Yes, COVID-19 is alive and well still, but as long as we get our vaccine and keep wearing masks, happy days will be here again sooner or later.

In the great words of John and Yoko, "War is over if you want it". And yes, we want it ASAP.

4.14.21 Bee-otch of the Day: Marlena Pavlos-Hackney

Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday; Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Sunday morning on Chuck69.com's socials.




Name: Marlena Pavlos-Hackney
Age: 55
Occupation: former restaurateur
Last Seen: Holland, MI
Bee-otched For: still not understanding her rights

--


Several years ago, there was a major news story regarding a young woman with a terrible habit here in Grand Rapids. 

She lived in an apartment complex and her neighbors noticed a strange, pungent stench from her home. Authorities came over and their worst reality was being observed: she was a hoarder.

She never took out her garbage. Her apartment was loaded with piles of baby food jars and used diapers. Clearly, she had a mental problem and it was also affecting her children. One inspector who entered her home claimed that on a scale between one for smells nice and ten for incredibly stinky, it was an eight or nine. 

Needless to say, I believe that woman was from Eastern Europe. Just like Marlena Pavlos-Hackney.

As I've mentioned a few times, Marlena is that nasty skank from Poland who owned a restaurant in Holland, 30 miles west of Grand Rapids. She made headlines when she decided to keep her restaurant open when the state temporarily took her license away for ignoring the state's COVID-19 orders. Eventually, she landed in jail for not paying her fines. She even made headlines when she refused to testify under oath by Judge Rosemarie Aquilina, who angrily banged the gavel, telling her that her courtroom is not Burger King and that she cannot "have it your way". She was jailed for four days and shuttered her bistro.

Now, Marlena wants things her way again. 

She just asked a judge to eliminate a contempt-of-court finding and allow her to re-open under the state’s coronavirus rules, plus return $15,000 in fines. Her lawyer, Robert Baker, claimed that Marlena's rights were violated and that Judge Aquilina - who sentenced Robert Nassar to a paltry 175 years in prison - didn't set her bond during her trial and took away her constitutional rights. 

BULLSHIT. 

Folks, I've said it once and I'll say it again: YOU DON'T HAVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS WHEN YOU'RE EITHER SIX FEET UNDER OR IN AN URN. PERIOD. Our state is STILL the COVID hotspot in the nation with over 7,955 new cases today alone. We have too many assholes who think that they are OK enough to go to places nobody should go to during a pandemic. Yes, it's OK to eat out, but not in a restaurant. Watch a movie at home and not that the cinema. The list goes on. Wear a mask. Don't go out unless it's necessary. Any person with a sizable IQ should know the drill. 

Look, one person already got COVID eating at Marlena's. That's one too many. If she wants to have too many folks in her establishment at once, she'll keep making Michigan the COVID laughingstock of America. I think long after the pandemic ends, people should keep boycotting her until she closes.

Thanks, but I'd rather support a place where you're still healthy the minute you walk out.

4.13.21 Bee-otch of the Day: those against wanting to close up Michigan

Bee-otched For: not wanting to close up Michigan again

--


When the state of Michigan was starting to become a hotspot for COVID-19 last year, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer was seen by health experts as a hero for shutting the state down. 

But, in the world of business, she was seen as the Antichrist.

It was a fact that when Michigan shut down for several months last year, restaurants, movie theaters and other nonessential businesses shuttered. But, Whitmer felt the pressure, especially when a near-insurrection was held at the Michigan Capitol. Whitmer used a law from the 1940s to protect her people. And then, the state Supreme Court - led by Republicans - told her that the jig was up. 

Whitmer is now weak and powerless in the fight against COVID-19 because of the Repukes who think that it's a hoax and that we shouldn't have to worry about a little bug that can send you to the hospital and has killed nearly three million people worldwide. She's even begged the White House for more help with COVID vaccines and Biden has told her, "no can do". 

True, Whitmer can recommend that businesses, schools and other places be closed. But, it's an issue of being able to pay off the mortgage every month or not getting COVID. And because of this, Michigan is now America's hotspot for the disease. 

For nearly a week, Michigan has been the epicenter for COVID-19. Just today alone, the state received 8,867 new cases of the disease. The Wolverine State now has over 230,000 cases of COVID and over 830,000 people in the state of nearly 10 million have gotten infected.

Yesterday, Centers of Disease Control head Rochelle Walensky recommended that Michigan shut down again and that vaccines alone will not solve the problem. She pointed out that it takes weeks for the vaccine to start working and to take effect.

The tragedy about Michigan is that true, it's a blue state, but, like many other states, once you get out into the country, it's more red than a bleeding heart. Many have cried that all Whitmer wants to do is kill small businesses in the state. The reality is, is that the virus is pretty much real and it will kill. 

Until Whitmer and the rest of the state can come to a deal, the only thing us Michiganders - and the rest of us - can do is wear a mask, get vaccinated and avoid going to places you don't need to go to. True, the weather is improving and we all want to go outside, but the virus is very much alive and well. So, until the pandemic is over, simply relax so the rest of us don't have to worry about it. 

America: the country that doesn't seem to mind wanting to kill itself.

4.12.21 Bee-otch of the Day: Ted Nugent

Bee-otch of the Day honors are awarded Monday through Thursday; Bee-otch of the Week is awarded Sunday morning on Chuck69.com's socials.




Name: Ted Nugent
Age: 72
Occupation: crock star
Last Seen: Texas
Bee-otched For: not being a man of science

--


I'll admit that I wasn't the greatest high schooler in the world.

Sometimes, I slept through science class because it was borderline boring. But, I still know more science than a lot of the right-winged pricks out there who don't believe in climate change or think that COVID-19 is a hoax.

And that means Ted Nugent.

Last Wednesday, the Motor City Moron took to Facebook Live to announce to whatever fans he has left that his latest concert tour has been canceled because of COVID concerns. 

After attacking the production companies for being too scared over the disease, he asked one of the dumbest questions to ever pop out of a rock star's mouth: "Why weren't we shut down for COVID 1-18?" He claimed that there was a COVID 1, 2, and so on and there were no shutdowns for those and that it's "99.8% survivable". 

In the video, he also talks about why this country didn't shut down for the AIDS epidemic or even the Spanish Flu, which we did and ultimately defeated. 

Also in the video, Nuge bitches about seeing an Alex Jones video where children are being bussed to "unknown facilities" for sex trafficking. Odd, considering that he himself is a pedophile with his very public relationship with 16-year-old Pele Massa in the 1970s. Funny how in England, the media has steered clear of pedos like Jimmy Savile and Gary Glitter. But I'll betcha that right now in America, a classic rocker will be spinning "Cat Scratch Fever", "Wango Tango" or whatever tune Uncle Ted wrote about sexually accosting his minor girlfriend at the time.

We all know that Nugent is an unrepentant right-winged asshole who moved to Texas because of his love of ex-president George W. BusHitler. He even claimed that Drumpf helped to name his newest album "Handsome Devil" because he called him that at one of his rallies. In fact, Drumpf and Buttnugget deserve each other for doing what they could to get away from going to Vietnam. One was rich, the other crapped his pants (and we all know which is which). 

Ya know, I miss going to concerts. I miss traveling and I miss walking around the mall. Simply put, I spend my weekends kicking back because I don't want to risk getting myself COVID or anybody else for that matter. True, I got my first shot of vaccine a few weeks ago, but still, with too many people in Michigan getting the disease, I don't want to risk it. Unless it's essential, I ain't going out.

I know. Musicians need to tour. Album sales and airplay aren't enough for some. However, too many assholes are politicizing COVID and it's like the scene in "Bird Box" where Sandra Bullock is trying to prevent her children from looking outside because of mysterious objects that cause people to kill themselves. While the characters are hiding in a house, one of them enters a trance and uncovers all the windows and kills a lot of the people around him. 

Look, COVID-19 won't last forever as long as we listen to science. It's sad that other countries have done a better job fighting the disease while we play Russian Roulette with our bodies daily. We have to deal with losers who don't wear masks, who don't wash their hands after they use the bathroom and so on. Sadly, I look at the packed baseball stadiums and Wrestlemania from last weekend and shake my head. So people want COVID-19 this badly?

Ted Nugent is a sick, sick asshole and needs to shut up. Maybe he should get COVID to understand the pain others have felt over this past year. Eventually, karma should and shall catch up to him.

"COVID is 99.8% survivable." A quote from someone who is 100% asshole.

4.8.21 Bee-otches of the Day: those against a $15 minimum wage

In my old stomping grounds of Traverse City, MI, a local Wendy's served its last Baconator a few years ago. 

Located by East Bay, the Wendy's closed due to the old "remodel or close" clause in their contract with corporate. It originally opened around 1989 and lasted about 30 years. Today, the Grand Traverse Region only has one Wendy's, located on Division St. between Meijer and Tom's Food Market. That location was a rebuild of another Wendy's that opened in the 1970s. When the East Bay Wendy's closed, the owner claimed that they were scouting for a new location. Two years later, nothing's happened. 

But, one thing is for sure: the East Bay Wendy's will soon end up seeing the same fate as the sit-down Little Caesar's, Pizza Hut and the Hooters down the street: the bulldozer. 

Yep! That Wendy's will be demolished for a new four-story, 92-unit Avid Hotel. The 43,540 square-foot hotel will be owned by IHG, which owns several hotel chains. Two of them, Holiday Inn and the upscale Hotel Indigo, have locations in the Cherry Capitol. IHG also once owned a Holiday Inn near downtown Traverse City, but it was sold to Delamar Resorts a few years back. 

IHG's other brands include Crown Plaza, Intercontinental and Staybridge Suites.

Granted, Traverse City is a tourist trap and is loaded up the ass with hotels go range from chic to roach-infested slums that need Dan Bell's attention. After all, people need a place to stay when they go to the Traverse City Film Festival or see some has-been rock group like Trapt at the National Cherry Festival. 

However, the employees need to get paid, too.

For years, East Bay seemed to be the most-neglected part of Traverse City aside from the remains of Cherryland Mall. Aside from the abandoned Wendy's, there was an abandoned Hooters that opened in 2007 but closed seven years later and sat abandoned until it was raised a few weeks ago. The property will become a new luxury car wash complete with food trucks.

Granted, it's nice that a city of 15,000 souls can handle all the restaurants and hotels in the world. For such a small town that's 150 miles from civilization, there's a ton of places to sleep and eat. However, the dilemma is, what about the pay?

Traverse City is a town where $200,000 might either get you a dinky condo or a trailer 20 miles out of the city. Here in Grand Rapids, $150,000 will get you into a decent, livable home. I've even talked to people who moved here in Grand Rapids from northern Michigan because it's a helluva lot cheaper. As someone who couldn't get a decent job up north, I sometimes shake my head and wonder what type of person could afford to work at a hotel.

When I was a kid, my mother and I would drive along M-72 by Grand Traverse Resort. Sometimes, we would see Jamaicans walk along the road and we'd pick them up to send them to work. It's no secret that northern Michigan has had a long history of seeking aid from immigrants for Summer work, whether it's working in the orchards or even the hotels. Simply put, people don't want to work at the hotels, restaurants or gas stations because the pay sucks. 

In the past few years, Denny's in Traverse City went from being open 24 hours to being only open for breakfast and lunch. The downtown KFC was closed for months and a Speedway gas station had to close all because of one thing: staffing shortages.

It wouldn't shock me if many of the establishments in Traverse City pay squat for their workers. I remember seeing a sign for a McDonald's there not long ago where they were saying that they beginning pay was $11 per hour. If you're getting paid $11 per hour in TC, chances are that you're still living with your parents, living with roommates or in a van down by the river.

It's sad that in Australia, the minimum wage there is $14.19 per hour, including for fast food workers. One can afford to live on that. Here in America, we have companies that fight tooth and nail to protect their profits, so they lobby the government to keep our minimum wage at $7.25 per hour. The good news is that the app known as Goods Unite Us reports that IHG mostly gives to the Democrats, so maybe, maybe, maybe they pay well. Fingers crossed.

At least it ain't Drury Hotels. Them boys are Repukes.

Bee-otched For: not wanting to end COVID

--

There's a saying that many are misusing these days: "follow the science".

A few weeks ago, I saw an old lady wear a mask with that statement in a red state briefing. To me, it states, "kids can't get COVID-19. Put 'em back in school!"

Try telling that to one of my co-workers. 

Last week, his 12-year-old daughter was diagnosed with COVID. As a result, he now has to stay home until she's better since he was exposed to her. Thankfully, he was vaccinated against the disease. 

Obviously, the right is bitching about kids not being in school and blaming the unions on what they called "lazy teachers". In reality, teachers are people, too, and they get sick worse than their students. Here in west Michigan, several teachers have died from COVID. Honestie Hodges was just 14 when COVID took her from the world last November. She made headlines when she was just 11 when Grand Rapids Police handcuffed her at gunpoint while looking for a murder suspect. It is tragic on how much trauma she faced on her extremely short life on this orb.

Just today, Michigan received the highest amount of new cases of COVID: 9,369. It was also eighth place in terms of deaths from the disease at 30. Among them was Dave Sherbert, a longtime radio personality in the Grayling area known for hosting the morning shows on rock station Q100 and its predecessor, country Y100. He only retired a few years ago and was 69. 

As of this writing, only a fifth of Michigan residents are fully vaccinated while 32% have had at least one dose. It puts Michigan in a better spot than Texas, where 29% of the state's residents have gotten one dose of the vaccine and 17% have had both doses. Of course, many are angered over the Texas Rangers' decision to open up their ballpark to a crowd of 38,000 a few nights ago with hardly anyone wearing a mask.

Sadly, when the news regarding the COVID vaccines were released, both states and people jumped the gun. Airports are now at pre-pandemic levels. People are traveling and coming back with COVID. This is why people are foolish when it comes to the disease. 

I know. I'm tired of COVID and you're tired of COVID. But, we have to follow the REAL science here, and it's the fact that the pandemic is still here and getting worse. People need to stop acting stupid and they need to keep wearing masks and keep apart from others. Just because you think you're healthy doesn't mean that you're not immune from the virus. When it's your turn, get your shot and hopefully by this Summer, this fucking thing will be long gone.

Together, we can make things go back to normal.
