    All Good Things....

    Just thought I'd share a milestone with my Ute brethren. After 34 years serving as a national bank examiner with the Comptroller of the Currency, I am retiring today. I can't believe how fast time flies.

    I just want to say how entertaining this board has been over the years. It helped me get through several of the tougher years with a good smile or laugh.

    On to new adventures!

    Can I offer a suggestion....

    Innocent until proven guilty but signs of concern re: Domo. Put it on the back burner and wait until the process plays out. Innocent, welcome back. Guilty, god help you but no longer a Ute.

    In short - refrain from going full zoob on this. What will be will be. There are mistakes and then there is what Domo is accused of. Wait to see how it plays out and discuss potential backups to his position - until then... Happy 4th - try to maintain all 10 fingers this weekend.

    Look.... As far as I am concerned if he stole phones, put them on Craigslist and orchestrated a sale then he needs to be dismissed from the team.

    A mistake is going to a Tim McGraw concert and having a buddy buy a beer for you. A mistake is being embarrased to buy condoms and walking out with a $5 box. Actively looking to #$@& someone for your own gain (theft of expensive cell phones) is not a mistake but a symptom of serious character issues (sorry for stating the obvious).

    ALSO... Though he may not be the person who pulled the knife HE WAS involved with a person who did (assuming we have a case of mistaken identity).

    Guess what... you are over-watering

    by Rocker Ute
    2015-07-02 12:13:39

    So not to go all Paul Rolley on UF.n but last year I decided it was ridiculous what I was spending on watering my lawn and that I could live with a few small brown spots in the heat of summer. So I changed my watering times from 25 minutes per station to two 10 minute sessions per station. I also changed my watering time from every other day during the hottest times of year to every 3 days. The results:

    My lawn was as green as it always has been, no brown spots.

    So, I reduced more... now I am 16 minutes per station (split into two 8 minute segments) every three days. Last year was much more mild than this year so far... the results... one little brown spot, sprinkler got twisted to not hit a corner right.

    Of course you've got to fertilize regularly etc. But the point is this, I'm watering almost half of what I was with the same results. I thought I was being conservative before.

    You can get a FREE water check, they'll come evaluate your system and watering rate and tell you what you need to do.

    I say this because we live in a desert and had record lows for snowfall this last winter. We'll probably all have to landscape for desert climates in the future, but today you can save a ton of water and a ton of $.

    So the Microsoft phone scam is making the rounds again. I've had my surface Pro 3 maybe two weeks or so

    by FlyfishingUte

    Lately Ive been getting a lot of no caller ID calls. So today I answered one. Guy said he was calling from Microsoft about my computer. I said really. Why would Microsoft hid their caller ID? Of course he didn't answer. I asked if he could hold on for sixty seconds or so. He asked why. I told him I was waiting for my IT guys to finish tracing the call to his location. He said that isn't necessary. I said of course it is how else will we know where to come and arrest you Click

    Theory on the Hatfield situation

    by 89ute
    2015-07-02 08:12:43

    I think it was two different guys. 1st guy might be a roommate. Roommate runs an ad to sell his X-box, Domo says "hey, throw an ad in there for my iphones too." This explains the different name.

    Call comes in for the X-box, 6 foot 3 black roommate does the deed, comes back with 180 bucks, fails to tell Domo about the pertinent details involving a knife, robbery and such.

    Call comes in for the iphones, Domo shows up at the car wash and BAM, handcuffed.

    It would be helpful to know if Domo had the phones on him when he was apparently arrested at the scene. It seems he didn't have a knife on him like the 1st person supposedly did.

    2nd Theory:

    Domo and friends/roommates decide to run a little scam. 1st guy runs the scam, comes back with 180 bucks, easy money.

    2nd call comes in, okay Domo, you're up, go collect your money. Domo arrested at the scene.

    Under this theory, Domo probably gets some kind wrap for intent, because he didn't actually rob anyone, but was about to. Not even sure if this is a crime. I think the suspect would have to prove that Domo had knowledge of what the 1st guy did.

    3rd Theory:

    Some married guy told his wife he's on his way to buy an X-box off of KSL classifieds from David Wilkins. Instead, married guy buys a couple lines of coke and gets a blow job, comes home empty handed so he makes up a story about being robbed by a big, bad 6 foot 3 black guy. Wife sees another ad from David Wilkins for iphones, sets up the sting, BAM, Domo gets caught up in married guys twisted web of lies.

    Why is nobody questioning the whole bit about it being a 6'3" dude?

    by 480ute
    2015-07-02 09:21:06

    Utah's website lists him at 5'10" which means he's 5'8"-5'9" max. I'm 5'11", and I can tell you that the leap from my height to 6'3" is huge. From 5-9 to 6-3 is gargantuan. Unless the victim is a dwarf, and his height perception is massively skewed I don't buy it until somebody explains this seemingly glaring issue.

    You should try working with the Defense Contract Audit Agency or a government pay office.

    by Newbomb Turk

    I once sent three vouchers (bills) to a pay office in the same envelope. They paid one of them but not the other two. When I called to ask why they didn't pay the other invoices they said because they hadn't received them.

    Third theory seems as probable as the purported crime.

    by Ute Bear

    Do criminals, other than meth addicts, rob people they have arranged to meet at knife point in public in broad daylight, then run across the street to their apartment.

    Regarding this Hatfield arrest, how does that work anyway? Can just anybody play detective and setup a sting operation, notify the police to be there and they arrest whoever else shows up?

    by DownhereUte
    2015-07-02 09:46:08

    The police have egos, I can't see how they could let a regular person call the shots. No offense to the officers reading the board, but you know you're the $#!+, with your short hair cuts and razor style sunglasses.

    Here's my theory...

    by The Thrill
    2015-07-02 10:10:20

    Dude shows up to buy an XBox looking for "black dude in Utah hat". Just happens to be some random 6'3" black dude in Utah hat and tells the guy "hey, I have your $180 do you have my XBox?" Random guy says "uh, yeah sure, let's go around the corner." Victim hands over the money and random dude says "thanks bro, check out my knife...later".

    Domo shows up 20 minutes later and thinks the guy with the money backs out and doesn't show up.

    Gets a call the next day for some iPhones he's also selling and gets arrested.

    >> Comment...

     

    So the guy buying the XBox says he was 6' 3" but then testifies that it is actually Domo who is maybe 5' 9" at best from my Ute Walk experiences with the guy.

    My son is 6'3" and there is no way you can mistake 6 whole inches on a person. Also how was it that his word and story stands without any scrutiny by the police. Did the first event even happen? How can they prove it? Why wasn't there a police line-up?
