City, Police Chief at Odds Over Why He Was Fired

From Times Wire Reports

John Sterling says he was dismissed as police chief because of his short-lived political ambitions.

But the city attorney says he was disciplined for threatening to sue the city manager, Tim Ness.

A March 19 memorandum from Ness said the chief threatened to sue him.

Sterling, 52, said he has hired an attorney to get his job back.
