I have been a highly satisfied chiropractic client of Peak Performance for decades. It is unfortunate and inappropriate that the police report used their name rather than the address of the suspect's place of business.

In its report on this drug bust the Weekly identifies the suspect's place of business as Peak Performance. The Weekly is the only news source which used this incorrect identification rather than the suspect's business name One-2-One Fitness and business address 325 Sharon Park Drive.
Bill Tarr's Peak Performance is a highly reputable organization and Bill has been a long time and strong supporter of the community in many ways.
The Weekly's use of Peak Performance's name in this article is totally inappropriate and very damaging to Bill and his business. The Weekly owes him a very public apology.

I feel compelled to add my endorsement to Bill Tarr and Peak Performance Chiropractic. I am a long time client and Bill is the best Chiropractor I have ever been to. I was sorry to see his name and place of business inaccurately tied in this incident.

The Menlo Park police issued a press release this afternoon saying that when they raided the offices of Peak Performance, they only raided the space used by the perp. The perp is an "independent contractor" to Peak Performance, not an "employee" of Peak Performance.

Just consider it a victory for civility and truth - Peak Performance was clearly inappropriately identified in the original police report and the original story. The positive comments on Bill Tarr and Peak Performance represented fair balance.

"Or maybe the moon is made of green cheese.
What not supply facts rather than speculation? Or does that require too much work?"
My, my, seems that I have upset Peter again.
Facts?? similar to the "facts" you are supplying when you are accusing the school supe and board of breaking the law?
This may come as a shock to Peter but people speculate on things all the time. I do not know the entire list of weekly advertisers and I did find it intriguing that all the negative comments were deleted.

The story's original reference to Peak Performance came from the Menlo Park Police Department, the arresting agency. We posted the story after receiving an alert from the department. The reference was removed after we learned that the police gave out the wrong information, and a correction was made.

It's unfortunate that the chiropractor was falsely represented as the owner of the facility. However, he rented his back space to him so in essence is was a bit involved. All together, it's a sad situation. They'll all get what they deserve.
