of Desert Hot Springs is NOT associated
with that other website using my name.
I received a phone
call from a friend to ask me if I started up my Friends of Desert Hot
Springs website again. I told him no. He said well somebody
is using your name then.
I started to look but when I typed freindsofdeserthotsprings.com. I did not see what he was talking
about. Then he forwarded me an email (email copied below).
Below is the email
that I received. If anyone knows these people please ask them
to not use my name on their website and to have the decency to
take ownership of what they write using their own name.

Hello friends. We are a small, dedicated group
of people who believe in Desert Hot Springs. We
know and trust in the fact that this is our
city……the peoples’. We no longer will sit back
and fall into passivity. We no longer will wait
and hope for the best. We will have our voices
heard. We will celebrate our progress over the
last few years and will surpass it over the next
few. We, and only we, will hand pick our
representatives. We will not be swayed by
gossip. We will not be tripped by the snare of
rumor. The days of the same old are gone in
Desert Hot Springs. We are reclaiming the keys
to city hall.
If you wish to volunteer and become a part of
our friendship, or if you can help with some of
your skills or talents, please email us at

May 1, 2013 from the website friendsofdhs wordpress by
and calling themselves The People which turns our to be
Karl Baker and people I don't know named Tim Brophy,
Paul Clark, Robert Bell Jr., and Kelly Wisnewski.
These people are NOT associated with
I know who Karl
Baker is. I don't know the other people. I don't
know who Tim Brophy is or Paul Clark or Robert Bell Jr., or
Kelly Wisnewski but I ask them and
Karl to put a disclaimer on their new website that says "Not
Affiliated With Friends of Desert Hot Springs" and stop using my
website name Friends of Desert Hot Springs.
I am going to leave this
page up to
make sure people are not confused by someone trying to
impersonate me and being very deceptive by using my name for
their very negative comments.
Friends of Desert
Hot Springs is NOT associated with that other website and I do
not want anyone to be confused by that.
I have been away
from Desert Hot Springs for 3 years except to visit friends. It
looks like progress has been made. I love the new Health and
Wellness Center and its Mid-Century Modern Architecture and I
know there are other good projects coming so that is good news
for Desert Hot Springs. I remain
positive about the city.
But using my name,
my website name and negative commentary is not right and these
people at the very least should have the integrity to stand
behind their name and not mine. Before they were anonymous. Now
they at least let everyone know in their email who they are. But they are NOT Friends of Desert Hot Springs.
If anyone is
interested you can see what I am doing these days at my other
website gabrielking.com and thank you for taking
the time to read this.
