The BLACK COLLEGE of LAST RESORT sends GSC BLACK PLAYER just to wear ORANGE at CRJ for FELONY CRIMES committed in Glenville involving dangerous drugs!

By Rina McCoy-Cosmos Communicator Editor/Free Bird -RGW Reporter for the Central WV Secret Seven Coalition/Editor Edison – Color  Commentator/CalPatty Press-Editor

Saint Paul’s College is a private, historically black college located in Lawrenceville, Virginia

Osmund Brown transferred from St Pauls in Virginia last July!

St. Paul’s had already pulled the plug on Football, so Osmund was sent our way!

Raymond Holmes, provost and vice president for academic affairs said,

“The school was faced with a $1.9 million deficit in its $11 million budget, cutting sports was the only way to keep the school open, the board of trustees decided in May”

St Pauls accepted students regardless of grades, just like GSC.  I’m really beginning to wonder what is up with that way of thinking!!

The mission at St Pauls  is to serve the under-served, providing a place for students who can’t get in elsewhere.

It was also a school of last LAST RESORT for athletes.

According to a  secret and trusted source who is also a well liked member of Glenville’s Secret Seven Coalition …

“There was a time when  GSC  could get or buy some of the best young players out there!”

“Now it seems the bar has been lowered to where you just have to step over it, and what you get are drugs, rape  …and what is next …murder?!”

GSC FOOTBALL PLAYER FELONY ARREST TAKEN TO CRJ!

“A Tight-End  on the football team at Glenville State College, Osmund Nathaniel Brown is charged with 3 felonies. 11F-97,98,99  GILMER COUNTY currently being held at CRJ.”

              Osmund Nathaniel Brown

Height: 6ft 3in Weight: 225 lbs. DOB: 12/3/1986

Booked: 9/22/2011 Booking ID: 999045482

Gilmer County – Bail: $20 000.00 – CRJ

Charge Type: Felon

First-year Glenville State College head football coach David Hutchison is excited to lead the Pioneers into action this season, except Hutchison had no idea what Glenville, WV is like with the raping of white girls by players and unsolved murders and …OH YEAH all the dope the imports bring in from out of town.

New transfer and tight end OSMUND BROWN wearing blue looks good in ORANGE at CRJ where it is not OK to bring in hard drugs to the Best Western in Glenville and turn out all the hotties on dope with the sanction of IL Morris and the Power Elite of Crooked County down by that Crooked River!

Osmund Nathaniel Brown is the dude that got busted after his black girlfriend complained about Brown taking some pink from a younger and much hotter white chick and she wasn’t gonna go for the sloppy seconds, so she got pissed about all the green handed out to the pinker white  pink, and then dudes BITCH turned into what they used to call a black fink and the green got scattered to the wind as the mean white cops busted Brown and took him downtown  …. and then for a little trip to CRJ where it was NOT OK, because Gerry (I’m always right because I’m always white) Hough was not there to let another criminal go!

“…Hey, well why didn’t you just say so NEGRO!”

The NEW TIGHT END, is not our friend and took that trip to CRJ yesterday!

Class: Senior
Height: 6’3″
Weight: 230
Position: Tight End (but that end won’t be too tight in prison)
Number: 11

Osmund Nathaniel Brown got busted Thursday by the cops for a FELONY times three and it looks like we … have more drugs and crimes going on at Glenville State College and September is not over yet. This time the bail was 20,000 bucks and GSC is being very tight lipped about the alleged drug bust.

Brown and his girlfriend Erica Paramore were  arrested for allegedly selling illegal drugs –  and or, are both being held on drug-related charges and another charge of child endangerment.

Certainly GLENVILLE was a LAST RESORT for BROWN, and I ask,  well why should GSC be a LAST RESORT for someone that is WHITE that just doesn’t give a fuck about what is good for GSC — for what is good for GSC is not necessarily what is good for me or GLENVILLE, WV — In Celebration  –Lets hear what someone WHITE says about BROWN and the LAST RESORT!

Brown and his girlfriend, Erica Paramore, were both charged with possession with intent to deliver drugs, conspiracy and child abuse causing injury after Paramore admitted to smoking marijuana belonging to Brown in the Best Western hotel in Glenville while in the presence of their child.

Both are currently incarcerated in the Central Regional Jail in Sutton in lieu of $20,000 bond. Their preliminary hearing is scheduled for this Friday, Sept. 30 at 9:30 a.m. before Magistrate Wolfe.

Lets hear about what Papa Roach has to say…


The GILMER FREE PRESS a BEACON of TRUTH!!

Do We Want the Truth, or A Manipulated Local Mainstream Media?

image

Never before has it been so important to have independent, honest voices and sources of information in our community.

We are – as a society – are often inundated and sometimes overwhelmed with a flood of information from a wide array of sources, but these sources of information, by and large, serve the powerful interests and individuals that either own or control them.

The main sources of information, for both public and official consumption, include the mainstream media, alternative media, academia and think tanks.

Our local print media is the most obvious in its inherent bias and manipulation of the facts and stories.

The immediate community took an interest in the shockingly tragic Fred Hill case, but there were no real stories about a mysterious death, only police report formatted articles of who what where why and isn’t it very interesting that “NO FOUL play rule was used long before the medical examiner had time to even investigate or view the remains.

“Of course, it had to be … NO FOUL PLAY in that obvious game of …  hide the body, “OH NO, FRED IS DEAD.”

Suffice it to say the common citizen were more than disappointed about news coverage of this sad occurrence right in the heart of Glenville, West Virginia, where saying the wrong thing just might get you killed.

Or, if you have an allergy like Mark Medley, “I am allergic to mean people with guns”  …that was all she wrote for Medley for 357 Evey shot him dead, and knew nothing about his allergy and what the heck is a convicted felon doing keeping a 357 on the floor of his truck?

The real truth of the matter with Mark Medley was told by The Gilmer Free Press.

It is very important to address how the local print media is intertwined, often covertly and secretly, with the local government and powers that be.

The recent rape at the college last June has come under a news blackout! Gabe Phrophet was arrested but he still has not had a preliminary hearing. What is up with that?

The local paper listed a small mention in the court news section involving Andrae Wright. This person acted strangely just before the arrest and acted in a violent manner. If not for The Gilmer Free Press this entire incident would never have gotten any coverage at all.

The local print ad reporter doesn’t even show up to meetings of the Gilmer County Commission but instead is handed material to report on the way the Prosecutor wants it published. Where is the journalism there?

An interesting association is formed when slanted data reaches a print news source. Citizens depend on unbiased consideration of news worthy events not a prepared news release.

By far the most valuable of these associations, according to trusted sources is printing reports written and supplied by some local government officials and calling it reports from meetings, yet no reporter of the paper was present.

This brings us to the question of do we as citizens want true journalism or a collection of information that is far from the truths, late, and controlled propaganda?

Unfortunately these types of relationships have continued in the decades since, although perhaps more covertly and quietly than before.

The Glenville Democrat/Pathfinder did not have a reporter at the most important meeting of the Gilmer County School Board – the meeting that will always be a part of history – the meeting in which John Bennett had to try to take the blame for the failure and forced takeover – the meeting where Gayle Manchin just let it fly and let Gilmer County Schools have it right in the eye…

Where was the local print press, the local new source that brags about being a family paper? That same local paper now promises no more bad press for Mr. Blankenship.

How can you guarantee a situation as volatile as a state takeover of an entire county school system as a situation in which any reasonable, responsible print news source can guarantee no bad press?

Is firing of a longtime news reporter by Glenville Democrat/Pathfinder because of her attempt to cover the truth justified?

Is that an offer to print the news that Superintendent or WV State Board of Education wants printed?

Would that be considered catering to the elite? Why yes it would and that covert act could never be interpreted as fulfilling a responsibility to the community.

There is always a high road in Journalism and low road, which of course our local print media has chosen the LOW ROAD.

The FREE PRESS is not free to the people in it. Members of the Free Press often have to pay to take part in FREE PRESS activities these days. The effort takes time and it takes equipment, and also being up to date with technology as part of one’s commitment to the community.

The GILMER FREE PRESS lived up to its responsibility to the community by covering the most important meeting ever held involving the Gilmer County Schools.

The Gilmer Free Press got the entire “WV STATE TAKE OVER ORDEAL” on video, so that the matter can be studied further and for the reason of allowing the common citizen an opportunity to have the matter recorded so that they could make up their own mind about important matters.

Many interested parties most likely could not attend, and then many also were somewhat timid about attending such an exclusive meeting with many big-names attending that have come by a celebrity status in this part of the state.

The majority in Gilmer County have often used their votes to co-opt voices of dissent and movements of resistance into channels that are safe for the powers that be. This effort should be continued.

While the objective is to expand and help spread important and much-needed information to more people than ever before, The Gilmer Free Press also hopes to hear from their readers who wish to support the cause by voicing their feelings and opinions.

~~~ Readers’ Comments ~~~

Censure of the local news magnifys why we must revive freedom of the press, speech, and freedom to assemble. We know about unreported issues and yanked news affecting the rich and powerful. We know too about threats from some of those individuals against our local champions for constitutional freedoms. Thank you GFP for enabling us to keep informed. Knowledge engenders power. It will take time to thrust aside our repression, but the GFP has helped by improving our situational awareness. Sure, mysteries remain. For an example, why is it widely believed that IL is on the HS principal’s short leash? With a call he could get what most citizens want & that is her replacement. Is the principal using something to control Ike or does the public wrongly believe that he is a party to our school mess? The fair question to Ike is do you support the HS principal or Gilmer’s people?

How many times will the controllers try to erase and rewrite history by getting rid of those who disagree with their agenda. The excuse that the new hires brought back to town are related to someone here is just that, an excuse.  They can’t say we don’t have long time, contributing, tax paying members of this community who are qualified for these jobs. It’s been done at the court house, the FRN and now the local paper brings in Baber’s campaign coordinator,  Ask any of them how they plan to help resolve issues impacting this community, the answer is I don’t know anything about that or I’ll check into it.

By Remember This  on  09.22.2011

I have strongly disagreed with many things written in that paper and actions taken by the FRN but if the man-handling I have heard about is true it’s getting time to put a leash on a few of those dogs.  Nobody can justify physical contact and threats to intimidate an employee. I guess we really do have a major drug and alcohol problem in this town. How else can such actions be explained?

Seeing Bennett helping the disgrace high school principal is disgusting to me. After what he went through in public and the put downs by Gail Manchin, and knowing the principal and her crew caused his downfall, the man must be an idiot. He has just proves to me he is as much responsible for the cover-ups and illegal activities as those whom he allowed to do it.

Mr. Ike Morris said: HE AND HIS FAMILY WILL NOT DO ANYTHING TO HURT THE PEOPLE OF GILMER COUNTY.
When media is controlled to the point that the local newspaper’s owner/editor physically threatens and then fires the reporter for attempting to tell the truth, in fear of losing advertising dollars from those whom Ike knows and controls is HURTING THE PEOPLE OF GILMER COUNTY.

If ‘we the editors’ does not want to print the truth in Democrat, then he should change the name of the paper to ‘Glenville Tabloid’.

There is no integrity in any newspaper when “money talks and truth walks”.

By Patriciamd63  on  09.22.2011

I wish to take this opportunity to thank the GFP for the article today of Do We Want The Truth?
I think it was very well said and if it were not for the GFP a lot of this information that the people of Gilmer County are now getting would not be possible. THIS IS TRUE JOURNALISM. When there are news stories, GFP publishes it. Regardless of who it is about, GFP presents it to its readers and we can draw our own conclusions, but it will be the truth.
And for this GFP has been threatened. The weekly newspaper only covers the news that is profitable to him, and the ones who he covers up, not his readers. Saying the Democrat would never publish anything bad about Mr. Blankenship is a little far-fetched. He does not know what will happen in the future that would be news worthy. But guess he won’t print it if it is bad. Gilmer County is in one of the biggest messes of all times and the hole is getting deeper and we all know who to thank for that. We won’t read that in there either. All the other “elites” The Glenville Democrat editor has you all covered too. It is called “Selective Journalism”. No bad news on the Gilmer County School Principal, (even though 95% of the people want her gone
for what she is doing to the school system, but most importantly to the students of GCHS) rapes and crimes at GSC, unsolved crimes in the county, no drug arrests or who is selling alcohol to underage college students or all the other crooked things happening in our county. Good news only, compliments of The Glenville Democrat, your hometown newspaper. Glad I do not have a yearly subscription, because I don’t want to read it anymore.

GFP republishes TWO WV RECORD articles on GERRY HOUGH one Ferpa Violation and one for knowingly bringing a false criminal case!!

Friday, September 16, 2011

Gilmer County Prosecutor Gerry Hough cautioned for ‘98 FERPA violation

image

WV Record Reports:

Records show very early in his legal career, Gerry Hough was scolded by the Lawyer Disciplinary Board for violating federal law when he improperly accessed a Glenville State College student’s academic records in the course of representing her accused attacker in a sexual assault case.

The Board on December 09, 2000, filed a one-count statement of charges against Hough for committing three violations of the Rules of Professional Conduct when he asked for, and received, a copy of Anita Phillips-Wiseman‘s transcripts on November 13, 1998. At the time, Hough was representing Wilkie Perez, a GSC student and quarterback of the football team, on charges he raped Phillips-Wiseman.

In the statement, which acts as an indictment for disciplinary purposes, the Board stated that Hough was also a member of the GSC faculty at the time he was representing Perez. Hough, the statement alleged, used his position on the faculty to mislead the GSC Registrar’s Office into getting a copy of Phillips-Wiseman’s transcripts for the sole purpose of aiding in Perez’s defense.

Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, strict limits are placed on disclosure of a student’s academic records, and who has access to them. Among those who are permitted access to a college student’s records, including his or her transcripts, is the student’s advisor.

According to the statement, at the time he requested her transcripts, Hough was not Phillips-Wiseman’s advisor. Because of that, the Board charged Hough with violating Rules dealing with truthfulness in statements to others, respect for the rights of third persons and misconduct.

Eventually, the Board on August 04, 2004, opted to dismiss the charge, and “caution” Hough, who by this time had become Gilmer County’s prosecutor, for his conduct, and fine him $400. The reason for the Board’s decision was due to the fact that at the time of the incident, Hough had been a member of the state Bar for only a month, and, upon learning of his actions, Thomas Powell, GSC’s then-president, reprimanded Hough, and denied him a pay raise given to other GSC faculty and staff.

As part of the agreement to dismiss the charges, Hough, despite his initial denial, had to admit to them, and express remorse for his actions.

Records show the sexual assault charges against Perez were dismissed.

Ohio man appeals dismissal of ethics complaint against Gilmer prosecutor
9/16/2011 7:40 AM By Lawrence Smith  -Kanawha Bureau

SZ200_ghough.jpgHough

CHARLESTON – Citing a failure to consider new evidence, an Ohio man is asking a state ethics panel to reconsider his complaint of improper conduct by Gilmer County’s prosecuting attorney in his 2005 criminal case.

The Office of Disciplinary Counsel on Sept. 6 dismissed the complaint Dan Bingman filed against Gerry Hough. In her dismissal letter, Lawyer Disciplinary Counsel Jessica Donahue Rhodes, said the information Bingman included in his Aug. 24 complaint of Hough paying one of Bingman’s relatives to testify against him, and advertisements Hough placed in the Glenville Democrat-Pathfinder accusing Bingman of “cyberbulling,” not only failed to show a violation of the Rules of Professional Conduct, but was also time-barred.

“Nothing in those two (2) documents reflect [sic] any violation of the Rules of Professional Conduct,” Rhodes said. “Furthermore, you have not provided any proof that Mr. Hough paid Mrs. Rafferty to testify during the trial.”

“Those allegations are far too vague and unclear to discern what actions you believe Mr. Hough has taken that amount to an allegation of a violation of the Rules of Professional Conduct,” Rhodes added. “It appears you have been aware of most of what you allege in your second complaint when your first complaint was filed and two (2) years before the first complaint was filed.”

“Thus, your complaint appears to be time-barred,” Rhodes said.

Records show, Bingman, of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, was indicted in March 2005 by the Gilmer County grand jury on a charge of grand larceny, a felony. He was accused of stealing, and later selling farm equipment, a brush hog, valued at nearly $2,500 on Jan. 31, 2002.

However, a jury on Dec. 14, 2005, convicted Bingman of petit larceny, a misdemeanor. Bingman maintained he should’ve never been indicted, let alone convicted, since the brush hog was valued at less than $400, and sat idle for over 20 years on property belonging to his family.

In his complaint, Bingman accused Hough of suborning perjury by getting Roanna Rafferty, Bingman’s aunt, to testify falsely she had a 1/6th interest in the property. Also, Bingman maintains Hough was aware the value of the brush hog was well below the $1,000 threshold for a grand larceny charge.

The allegations raised in his Aug. 24 complaint were similar to ones raised in a complaint he filed against Hough on Dec. 20, 2007, that was dismissed a month later. However, in his response dated Sept. 8 to their dismissal letter, Bingman said ODC failed to consider two new pieces of evidence included in his recent complaint that came to light last year.

One was a title opinion that was introduced last July in a civil suit showing Rafferty did not own the 1/6th share of the property she claimed. Another was bills received in October for back taxes on the property that, Bingman said the county previously refused to let his family pay.

The title opinion and tax tickets, Bingman says, show that his new complaint against Hough not only falls within the statute of limitations, but also he had no business prosecuting him in what amounted to a family squabble.

“The new evidence in this case proves that it should not be time-barred,” Bingman said. “It proves that due diligence was not practiced and a human being suffered severely as a result.”

“A case should never be brought to court by a Prosecutor who has not used due diligence to establish the facts,” he added. “When Hough could not locate the 1/6th claimed, the court should have been notified (despite his embarrassment) a mistrial declared and perjury charges brought against the Prosecutors [sic] witness in my opinion.”

“Because there was no title proof of ownership, the jury, and the court could not know that there was equal ownership in a property dispute that somehow turned into a criminal case, although experts say it should have been a civil action all along.”

In response to his letter, Chief Lawyer Disciplinary Counsel Rachel L. Fletcher Cipoletti said ODC was treating Bingman’s dissatisfaction of their dismissal of his complaint as an appeal and would be placing it on the agenda for the next meeting of the Lawyer Disciplinary Board’s investigative panel. Though she did not say when the next meeting would take place, Cipoletti said she would notify Bingman in writing of their decision.

When reached for a comment about Bingman’s complaint prior to its dismissal, Hough said he had yet to see it. However, he said this was Bingman’s latest attempt to retry his case.

“Every citizen has a right to complain and have their voice heard somewhere,” Hough said. “He’s been busy for the last four years reinventing the trial that took place, and his conviction, which was found by a jury of his peers guilty of larceny from his family.”

*** RGW statement regarding West Virginia Record article!

As we all know HOUGH brought false charges in this case knowingly, and it has been PROVEN Hough paid witnesses to lie on the stand and now many concerned friends and relatives even in another state are lodging complaints in Columbus that the long arm of the Crooked Crooks from Crooked County that live down by the Crooked River can reach out and put innocent people in chains and drag them across state lines even with fabricated evidence!

The GREAT and WONDERFUL DAYS in GILMER COUNTY and West Virginia as seen by AJ Woofter!

By Editor Edison/CalPatty Press – Editor

West Virginia was the only state to form by seceding from a Confederate state, and was one of only two states formed during the American Civil War.

Becoming a state following the Wheeling Conventions, WV broke away from Virginia during the American Civil War. The new state was admitted to the Union on June 20, 1863, and was a key Civil War border state. Many of the families that were originally part of the fine state of Virginia are still in Gilmer, Calhoun and Wirt County today, and this gentleman Albert Johnson Woofter is from one of those families. AJ Woofter describes the way of life in the 30’s 40’s and 50’s with such clarity and grace that a person can smell the home cooked meals on the stove and see the fish jumping out of the Lil Kanoy.

Please enjoy these articles by AJ Woofter as they are on loan to us from a relative of AJ Woofter who currently owns all of the articles.

The family still owns and pays taxes on the proprty in middle run and I especially love this article!

I truly loved this article about the early days in Gilmer County!

Its wonderful to hear about the early days of education in WV. AJ Woofter lived in Dekalb just about a mile east of the Calhoun County line with the Little Kanawha River out in back of the little house near the road that had to moved once to put the road in.

Interesting information about early education in rural WV!

FREE PRESS SPEAKS OUT! HOUGH COMPLAINT FILED with accusations of suppressing key evidence!

G-LtE™: Speaking Out for Each Other

image

What more fitting words for the anniversary of September 11, 2001 could be penned?

They match the concept that all of us are our brother’s keeper.

Unfortunately in Gilmer County complacency and fear are the two biggest impediments to speaking out for each other, and we have suffered harsh penalties of our silence.

Our school system was seized for political reasons, our uniformed officers and the legal system has failed to serve all citizens equally regardless of their social standing and their net worth, the community is ravaged with drugs, poverty rampages with its insidious grasp on too many of our people, and our institutions of local government and Glenville State College operate behind impenetrable walls of secrecy.

Powerful individuals with money, that ensures political clout, want to stifle our freedom of speech, they want to scare us into silent submission with whispers of loss of our jobs, and they threaten ruinous law suits against individuals with the courage to protest.

Citizens, what are we going to do?

Out of despair do we surrender unconditionally because we believe that we are powerless to achieve positive change?

Do we tremble in silence hoping that someone will come to our aid to cast off the shackles of corruption, illegal activity, and other forms of repression in the County?

Alternatively, do we stand up for ourselves to form unified opposition to what we believe is wrong?

What not giving collectivism a try to unleash our power?

If we accept the concept that our children are our most important and cherished possessions, let’s set an example by banding together to advocate for a world class school system.

How can we do that?

The most effective way is to let our collective voices be heard clearly at the local level and in Charleston.

Also, we must let politicians know with unmistakable clarity that our votes can no longer be taken for granted, and we will support office seekers who will administer to our legitimate needs including taking decisive measures to correct problems with our County’s school system.

Dear Rachael Cipoletti

Let this document represent me in official capacity and give notice that I received by mail a document dated September 8th from Jessica H Rhodes informing me of an appeal of the dismissal pursuant to specific rules of procedure.

I protest the fact; that there was a dismissal, and then,  I am notifying you by this official document that by the very act of suppressing the evidence of the TITLE OPINION that proves ownership in direct contradiction to claims by the Circuit Court, and by suppressing and not recognizing evidence presented by way of BACK TAX BILLING that most certainly Jessica H Rhodes and members of the office of disciplinary counsel have actively engaged in a conspiracy to cover up felony crime, and further attempted to suppress and not bring forward these specific pieces of evidence that proves there was a felony crime committed by pulling the title from the land books, so the 1/6th of the property in question would prove equal ownership. This evidence was suppressed in circuit court and the result of not being able to bring the truth of the matter forward, was the misconduct of Gerald B Hough and Beverly Marks Gilmer County Commission clerk being covered up by your office.

In July of 2010 the title opinion was used against Roanna Rafferty in civil court, and we did not have access to that document until then, when it became a matter of court record.

I am officially requesting the federal attorney that represented me in federal court contact officials in Washington DC that are not WVU graduates and that have never been members of the West Virginia Bar Association to look into the wrongdoing and criminal activity pertaining to suppressing evidence – important evidence – and more importantly evidence that resets the two-year statute that time barred my complaint of 24 August.

We are not going to recognize degree’s from a school that hands out Masters degree’s to unqualified candidates as was the case of the daughter of former governor Manchin. The action taken in regard to taking my complaint was unlawful given the fact key evidence was suppressed with full knowledge of doing so. I would appreciate it if this panel contains no graduates of WVU.

I ask specifically that Jessica Rhodes no longer be involved in this case, but obviously you ignored that request so now I am officially making that request again for the reason that your staff member appears to be completely inept and unfamiliar with the case. When I confronted Jessica about why she suppressed key evidence she went on some tirade about judge Facemire and the fact that he used the term despicable, could not even pronounce the word correctly according to the taped evidence and then denied saying it all to the Judicial Investigation Committee.

How was Rhodes even aware of the Facemire complaint and why did she bring it up in regard to this case? Rhodes knowingly suppressed key evidence and that is a serious violation of the peoples trust.

This reaction and answer to my query was highly unprofessional, and quite frankly she came off as a bit of a nut.  I am once again requesting that J Rhodes should be restricted from any further information or have any affiliation with this complaint against Gerald B Hough.

Rhodes made private communications between me and specifically you available to Hough, and they published those private communications on Gerry Hough’s hate site. I sent the evidence to law enforcement, and I am drafting a complaint to office of the US Attorney.

DUE DILIGENCE is a term that needs attention for Hough used no due diligence in the case, and really what part of that did Jessica Rhodes consider? She only considered the part in which key evidence is suppressed in a highly illegal manner.

Let me describe further in these words and let this statement stand as official response:

A case should never be brought to court by a Prosecutor who has not used due diligence to establish the facts. Just because a person says they own something doesn’t make it true. There are records to be checked and it takes a little longer than a 10 minute court recess. When Hough could not locate the 1/6th claimed, the court should have been notified (despite his embarrassment) a mistrial declared and perjury charges brought against the Prosecutors witness in my opinion. We have all seen the tax tickets, we know the property disappeared from the land books and that land titles are maintained in the County Clerk’s Office. It would have taken time to back search the records, locate the last time it had been taxed, who the owner was and see the correction made. It is quite simply pre-trial finding of fact. This did not happen. Yet in 2010 it magically reappeared, back taxed without question and sold at tax sale. The document was needed from 2004-2006 in Circuit Court and 2007 for a WV Supreme Court decision that was extremely close. Because there was no title proof of ownership, the jury, and the court could not know that there was equal ownership in a property dispute that somehow turned into a criminal case, although experts say it should have been a civil action all along. As for expert witnesses as to the value of anything, show us the credentials! To pay someone for a subjective opinion that can have such an impact on another life without verification of the facts through any other source is just unbelievable. We have all heard the audio of a much more experienced person assessing the value in question in the presence of the paid “expert”. It was obvious she was not a qualified expert on the subject and at that point was only concerned both of them would be called to court to testify to the value required to get the conviction.

The new evidence in this case proves that it should not be time-barred. It proves that due diligence was not practiced and a human being suffered severely as a result. The Office of Disciplinary Counsel needs to take a long, hard look at the facts. It is their role to oversee the conduct of attorneys practicing in the State of W.V. whether in private practice or elected office. Those in public office should be held to the highest standards. The purpose of the law is to serve the people, not to persecute, suppress or endanger their rights. The repeated threats made by Attorney Hough to take the money and home of anyone without legal action in process represent unethical conduct in and of itself. Multiple threats against private citizens with accessing their computer and outrageous charges of illegality for exercising their free speech, while using public funds to advertise this in the name of the office of the Gilmer County Prosecutor, is not only unethical but also illegal. He is not the only attorney in this county to use threats in such a manner but the ODC should make such an example of this case as to ensure that he would be the last. It is their duty. It is their job. It is what’s right.

The matter of the dismissal was published on the Gilmer Free Press and Gerry Hough threatened the owner with legal action if that document was not immediately posted.

31,136 people read the GFP from 10:59 am that Thursday until 10:24am Friday, and that number has again doubled.

This very well could be the first ODC battle shared with the public word for word.
Your FIRST investigation is not being recognized by myself and associates, and the appeal is for the appeal of a grave error and for the criminal activity of knowingly suppressing evidence.

We want to know WHO all of the members on the Panel you discussed are and if they are a member of the West Virginia Bar and or graduates of West Virginia University. This is a serious matter when YOU knowingly suppress evidence and we expect you to comply with this demand fully pertaining to panel members that show no bias and are accountable for their actions through their identity.
Sincerely,

Dan Bingman

The facts in this case are very obvious and out in the open.

Can someone explain to me how Beverly Marks can pull a title from the land books, sell this property to someone else, and then distribute money to friends of hers that were in no way related to the deceased who was the sister to AJ Woofter.

There is a witness that claims Marks was ordered by Timothy B Butcher to pull the title.
Audrey Ruth Woofter died because she did not have the money to get the proper care and she was forced to sell that property. The money went to people that had not seen for her for 30 or 40 years and not to the family.

Rosa Belle Gainer Cunningham received money from this sale and she was NOT RELATED but Beverly Marks saw to it that she received funds.

Metz refused to investigate.

Ms. Woofter was never married and never worked and died on Christmas day never getting the money from the property she owned that relatives paid the taxes on.

An out of state attorney Davis S. Harless filed suit against some of the same individuals accused of wrongdoing in the “Travesty of Justice” case.

Harless believes Charleston lawyer Scott Segal, his wife Justice Davis, W.Va. State Bar Disciplinary Counsel Rachael Cipoletti and Charles “Skip” Garten, who heads the Supreme Court’s judicial investigation office “Are corrupt! “And they should be disbarred.“  Harless claims they knowingly ruined his career.

Harless is seeking compensatory and punitive damages.

It makes it very difficult to trust one another and form a cohesive group to effect real and positive change. That is the desired result when educated professionals of the law use threats to control.  Confidence in the courts to protect us from abuse is gone.  The system has become the abuser. There’s definitely something wrong with this picture.

By Something needs to change  on  09.11.2011

The State’s DC protects its membership. Honest lawyers advise that wrong doing exists, but they warn that in WV the deck is stacked against citizens with complaints. Why? The Bar advocates for a trade and that is what the law profession is. Its members as a group are not any better morally than those in other professions. There is hope for change in WV. Access the http://www.wvrecord.com. Rogue lawyers are being exposed. They committed crimes including sexual offenses, stealing estates, drug dealing, fraud, income tax evasion, and stealing from clients. Look at what happened by big banks, Enron, World Com. and others to bilk the American people. They all had one trait in common besides greed—- batteries of Ivy League lawyers on their payrolls. Google HALT to learn what it advocates for disciplinary reform WV should implement. Mr. Bingham’s payoff will probably be restricted to credit for helping to expose urgent need for legal reform in WV.

HOUGH THREATENS THE GFP while Jessica H Donahue Rhodes writes a letter from the Lawyer Disciplinary Counsel which reveals she is a complete idiot!!

By Rina McCoy/Cosmos Communicator Editor

Well if you ever heard that saying, “She is not the sharpest knife in the drawer,”  certainly a good example was made yesterday the 8th of September when the Gilmer Free Press published the latest results from the latest misconduct complaint against Gerald B Hough, and the questionably accurate letter written by Jessica H Rhodes of the Lawyer Disciplinary Counsel

“The Office of Disciplinary Counsel showed their true colors and their obviously corrupt ways in front of ALL OF CENTRAL WV yesterday as the action was delivered almost instantly over the internet via the Gilmer Free Press!”

In the wee hours of the morning Thursday, Gerald B Hough Gilmer County Prosecutor was anxious and chomping at the bit to get the latest news of disciplinary action being dismissed that had been brought against him the last week of August.

“First thing in the morning the article containing the complaint against Gerry Hough was posted proudly on the GFP for all to see!”

Only, (which comes as no surprise) Hough threatened the GFP with law action if they didn’t immediately publish the letter written by Rhodes!

“Your failure to print this dismissal by the disciplinary counsel will be added to the evidence of your malicious, intentional, tortious conduct against me   …”

So the GFP was forced to print the letter they had not even had time to verify as authentic, but no matter, for it turned out to be totally authentic and the author of the letter from the office of the ODC turned out to be a complete idiot that did not understand the case at all!

In fact, not only did the attorney in Charleston not understand the case, she completely ignored the key evidence which re-set the two year statute to file a complaint, or  …. “Why would I have bothered filing the complaint,” stated the citizen claiming wrongdoing!

Good point! Not only was the letter poorly written, but the letter completely ignored the key evidence that substantiated the entire complaint.

Simply put, Hough paid a STATE WITNESS to lie on the stand and say she owned property she did not own.

NEW EVIDENCE which was a concept the very inept lawyer for the disciplinary board could not seem to grasp was left out of the letter entirely.

“You people down there are some corrupt Son’s of Bitches …aren’t you!”

…were the first words that  Rhodes heard in response to her failed attempt at covering for the crimes of Gerald B Hough,  according to a witness at the scene!

Obviously the ODC has proven itself to be corrupt and the entire day long ordeal was witnessed by all of Central West Virginia yesterday.

The VICTORY Gerry Hough wanted to celebrate yesterday was short lived, for it only lasted for two hours.  The ODC was notified of their mistakes and complaints are being readied to be filed against them for their possible unlawful and illegal conduct in their attempt to cover for the crimes of Gerald B Hough.

“A letter posted below explains that as of 11:18am yesterday the complaint against Hough has been officially refiled and accepted!”

The ODC was warned that any more attempts to cover up the criminal activity of public officials would result in a federal law action being filed against them in US District Court.

The entire article from the front page of the GFP appears below!

From 10:59am yesterday until 10:28am this morning there were 31,136 page views on the Gilmer Free Press and many of those people read this article that brings you the REAL TRUTH!

G-FYI™: Our Gilmer County Prosecutor Cannot Just Simply Ask? He Threatens Instead!

image

The following documents were just received from Mr. Gerry Hough, Gilmer County’s Prosecuting Attorney via e-mail:
Ghazzem*: You are quick to publish Daniel Bingman’s revenge-driven hate messages on your so-called Free Press website. Almost all of them are anonymous and appear to be various hate group members, when they are authored by the same Cuyahoga Falls (censored).


Here’s what the WV Office of Disciplinary Counsel thought of Bingman’s recent ethics complaint: “Accordingly, it has been determined that your complaint does not allege a violation of the Rules of Professional Conduct and the complaint will not be docketed for investigation, but will be closed without further action. Mr. Hough was not required to respond to this complaint.” (A full scan of the two page dismissal letter is attached)**
Let me remind you that your June 7th defamatory attack message remains copied and ready to file in a suit against you for your intentional efforts to destroy my professional and personal reputation.


Your failure to print this dismissal by the disciplinary counsel will be added to the evidence of your malicious, intentional, tortious conduct against me and, by your promotion of Bingman’s twisted notions, my entire family.
Your public retraction and personal apology for the June 7th message will successfully relieve the need to file against you for a judgment against your real estate properties and the business fixtures/equipment owned by you and/or Ramco Technologies.

Pursuant to the Gilmer Free Press’s policy of publishing newsworthy material, the documents are provided for public information.

The letter from the State Bar is self-explanatory to absolve Mr. Hough from culpability with the Dan Bingman controversy.

Nothing related to Mr. Hough was done intentionally by the Gilmer Free Press to dishonor his reputation, to adversely affect him monetarily, or to impugn his family in any way.

Should anyone misinterpret otherwise, a public apology is extended to Mr. Hough.

Accordingly, Mr. Hough’s voluntary involvement as an elected official to keep the public informed is admirable, and his proffering to render all his charges against the Gilmer Free Press null and void is accepted in good faith.

The mission of Gilmer Free Press is, at all times, to seek the truth and to report the news.

This affords readers opportunities to form their own opinions, a guaranteed constitutional right in these United States of America.

Mr. Hough is an elected official and with that position come certain responsibilities.

As a Public Servant, Mr. Hough must ensure that everyone is afforded the freedom of speech as dictated by the United States Constitution.

Denying taxpayers access to the truth is risky at this point, as the next election of Public officials may very well rid Gilmer County of a Public nuisance or two.

For one, the public has the right to ask questions, and answers must be given.

A lack of response can be construed as complacency.

Simply ignoring and avoiding issues is not acceptable to the taxpaying public who do not get a satisfactory return on their investment.

We have invited Mr. Hough to a public forum to set the record straight.

It would appear that Mr. Hough prefers threats to diplomacy.

Should Mr. Hough agree to a public forum – and then if any of the issues mentioned are found to be inaccurate – we will publicly apologize.

The Gilmer Free Press takes a neutral position on all issues, and Citizens are free to express themselves.

Mr. Hough is not only a public official with additional responsibilities to the community, he is also a citizen.

Like anyone else he can simply submit his opinion and it will be published after verification process.

Mr. Hough is the only reader who has ever used threats to get his comments published.

That is not necessary.

Regarding Mr. Hough’s accusation that all the comments are from Mr. Bingman, that is absolutely false.

Once again our Prosecutor is doing the very thing he accuses others of doing.

Perhaps these threats give us even more reason to further protect our citizen’s identity.

Otherwise, we would all be in danger of losing our property to the very person who is supposed to protect us from such action.

Maybe Mr. Hough should concentrate on improving his own real estate portfolio, as I’m sure it could use some remodeling to bring it up to code.
* Since Mr. Hough insists to use the first name, which includes his hate and threat messages in Farsi, the correct spelling is: Ghassem!

**  The attachment sent by Mr. Hough has not been verified by the Gilmer Free Press.

The second complaint was time barred not found inappropriate for action by the ODC but it’s hard to get lawyers to check lawyers.  Too bad the ongoing fight with Bingman isn’t the only problem the Prosecutor has.  I notice he didn’t apologize for not collecting “years” of those unpaid oil & gas co. taxes nor has he apologized for not prosecuting rapists, or plea dealing felonies to misdemeanors or revealing the issuance of false subpoenas in his name. The Gilmer Free Press gives the people a voice and for that we are forever grateful.

Comment by Get over it Gerry  on  09.08  at  08:27 AM

The BACK TAX BILLINGS and the TITLE OPINION that proved guilt were not accepted as evidence on purpose and the ODC will receive notice of their wrongdoing and a law action may follow.

The BACK TAX BILLINGS and the TITLE OPINION that were not accepted reset the statute and the details of this may be reported by another mainstream news source.

I think now we can be guaranteed of corruption at the Supreme Court level.

In the letter it asked for proof that Roanna Rafferty was paid and the proof is at the County Clerks office and the Sheriffs office but they made that evidence unavailable.

The SHERIFF has that check and is suppressing that evidence and Metz is making that evidence unavailable to the Supreme Court.

We proved subornation, but the important evidence, the newly found evidence that resets the statute was not recognized on purpose.

Corruption at the highest court level is truly sad.

The letter from ODC did not mention the Title Opinion or the BACK TAX BILLINGS.

Comment by Council of Concerned Citizens  on  09.08  at  09:29 AM

The SECOND complaint IS NOT time barred because ODC said they did NOT receive new evidence of Back Tax Billings and Title Opinion.

The NEW EVIDENCE resets the statute.

ODC is saying they never received the tax billings and the title opinion that proves the guilt of Hough.

They don’t want to receive it, is why they said they did not receive the billings and opinion.

Rachael C is fully aware of this fact that new evidence resets the two year statute.

So now another complaint against Hough is being drafted with new evidence NOT recognized being sent again.

Comment by Concerned Citizen  on  09.08  at  09:35 AM

Mr. Hough, the only way your reputation can be tarnished is by your own words and actions.  The people of this county know how to make their own decisions and changing the subject will not change that.
You haven’t had time for us since the day you were elected, running your law clinic and realty agency while holding office on a part time basis and teaching at GSC.
Later, you officially closed the law clinic and realty company but opened a storage business.  Your teaching job takes many miles of travel to Summersville campus today and a lot more of your time. You insisted on being full time Prosecutor.
Now you want a student to handle the job of collecting unpaid taxes you didn’t have time to take care of.  Are you more worried about offending the oil & gas companies so hand over the job to less experience? After all, if he or she misses a few who will know? When are you going to put all of these past dues in the paper so we know who owes what? question

Comment by Got Time?  on  09.08  at  11:40 AM

This is the biggest crock of you know what. This prosecutor instead of doing his job to fight crime, he is harassing the members of the community who are providing a service? What is he doing about multiple criminals at the college?

Comment by Disgusted  on  09.08  at  12:12 PM

He is complaining about us using an alias to remain anonymous. But it is ok for him to do it on his retort hate site which he promoted in his ads paid for by taxpayers’ money in local newspaper!

Comment by Hmmm  on  09.08  at  12:17 PM

The only person hurting Hough and his family is Gerry himself by his bizarre behavior.

Dear Rachael,

Please let this document represent a request for reconsideration and an appeal of the decision signed and investigated by Jessica H Rhodes. Obviously you did not consider all of the evidence much to our disappointment since we have been investigating the wrongdoing in this case for seven years and found several false facts brought before the courts knowingly.

The evidence that proved Gerry Hough paid Roanna Rafferty is at the Gilmer County Clerks office and the office of the Sheriff of Gilmer County. I discussed this issue with Sheriff Metz, but he has not as yet turned over to us that evidence, but it will be brought forward, so that excuse of no proof is a very weak argument on behalf of the Supreme Court considering the cost to fight this case in the West Virginia Courts for five years.

We were billed for back taxes in October of 2010 for property the 14th district circuit court and the West Virginia Supreme Court said we did not control or pay taxes on. It was our responsibility to pay taxes on the 1/6th the state of West Virginia refused to recognize because the title was pulled from the land books intentionally and we have a witness to bring forward.

Actual crimes were committed to cover up evidence brought in my case.

The evidence of the title opinion proves Roanna Rafferty DID NOT OWN the 1/6th she testified that she owned.

I hereby enter the title opinion as evidence in this request for reconsideration or appeal.

I hereby enter the back tax billings proving we were responsible for taxes the West Virginia Court said Roanna Rafferty owned that she did not own.

THIS IS NEW EVIDENCE THAT SHOULD RESET THE STATUTE!

Therefore my 2nd complaint is NOT time barred.

Let this document serve as a request for reconsideration using new evidence, and for an appeal of my complaint against Gerald B Hough Gilmer County Prosecutor.

Sincerely,

Dan Bingman

Keeping UP TO DATE with GILMER COUNTY CORRUPTION … Thanks to the GILMER FREE PRESS!

Hi it’s me Rina with an update on corruption provided by the Gilmer Free Press!

As you know the GFP broke this story on the 18th of November 2010, when everyone at the courthouse on the hill was a saying everything was just a big mistakes and  “… This is how we always do it!”

Of course a federal judge mentioned that the customary way of doing things in Gilmer County in this instance directly conflicted the law!!

A citizens of Gilmer County recently asked….

Is anyone tracking progress with the Gilmer Housing Partners lawsuit?

Yes we are, just so you know, but to those just tuning in, and getting a piece of our bandwidth here is more about the Crooked County way of the Crooked County Crooks that live down by the Crooked River!!

***

G-FYI™: Trial Scheduled for Previous Gilmer County Clerk’s Wrongdoing

imageAccording to the document below a trial is scheduled for Tuesday, October 25, 2011 at 8:30 AM in the United Stated Federal Court in Clarksburg, WV.
The trial is for the Civil Action No. 1:10CV39:
TEXTRON FINANCIAL CORPORATION, Plaintiff,

vs.

NEW HORIZON HOME SALES, INC., a West Virginia corporation,

GILMER HOUSING PARTNERS, LLC, a West Virginia limited liability company,

and SUMMIT COMMUNITY BANK, a West Virginia corporation, Defendants,
and
SUMMIT COMMUNITY BANK, a West Virginia corporation, Third-Party Plaintiff,

vs.

JACK D. JONES

And OFFICE OF THE CLERK OF THE COUNTY COMMISSION OF GILMER COUNTY, WEST VIRGINIA, Third-Party Defendants.
Click BELOW for a Printable Copy of the Court Documents:

Court Document # 1

Court Document # 2

Court Document # 3

The documents chronicle another example of need for sorely needed change in Gilmer County. Dr. Peter Barr is the sole incorporator and the manager of the Gilmer County Housing Partners which is one of the defendants. It is time for Dr. Barr to move on and Tim Butcher, Esquire should resign from GSC’s Board of Governors because he and his brother Terry are trustees involved with the botched land deal. When questions arise about appointments to GSC’s Board the defensive response is that Governor Manchin appointed them. The truth is that the Governor rubber stamped recommendations originating from GSC. Individuals named to GSC’s Board are ones certified locally to be stalwarts for maintenance of the status quo. Should anyone question how Board members are named they are invited to call officials at the West Virginia Higher Policy Commission to inquire about the process.  Central West Virginia deserve better than what we are getting to merit need for a thorough spring house cleaning at GSC.

THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS COINCIDENCE WHEN IT COMES TO DECEPTION IN GILMER COUNTY!

Oddly enough, Jack D. Jones of Pipestem, WV, owner of New Horizon Home Sales Inc and New Horizon Auto Sales in WV was not unfamiliar with either business schemes for a quick profit or unknowing of Gilmer County influences before he bought into the River’s View development project.

Over the years he was Officer and Registered Agent along with Sue Ellen Jones for at least eight separate ventures from his home in West Palm Beach, Florida which included:

»  Hanley Builders, Inc.

»  Mortgage Masters Inc.

»  Gold Coast Investments

»  Bahama Enterprises Limited Inc

»  Gold Coast Auto Sales Center Inc.

»  Perma-Nails Inc.

»  American Cellular Sales & Service Inc.

»  Professional Assessment Support Sys Inc.

All of the above are now dissolved for voluntary or involuntary cause prior to his West Virginia Corporations created in 2005.  Both of those are now defunct.

His neighbor about 2 ½  hours away at the same time was ILM in Naples.

Registered owner/Agent/Manager or Director who eventually brought his current operations manager Marc Monteleone into the mix of:

»  The Club Estates LLC

»  The Club Estates Realty of Naples Inc.

»  Naples Club Estates Homeowners Association Inc.

Do you think they would have any use for a builder or a mortgage company or two?

Hey Marc, are you affiliated with Bowles & Rice?  Just asking.

Now let’s go from Florida to sunny South Carolina.

Myrtle Beach, where everyone who is anyone in Gilmer County meets and greets in the summertime.

Isn’t that where Larry Chapman and Brian Kennedy were taken with their best girls a couple of years ago as a reward for such hard work?

Who do we find there?

Well, we have three people that originated out of Conway, South Carolina and owned real estate in Myrtle Beach all winding up at Glenville State College.

All from the same place and arriving at the same time were:

Peter B. Barr- President of GSC Previous Employment Coastal Carolina University,et al.

Manager/Organizer for Gilmer Housing Partners, President of GSC Housing Corp, etc.

Elizabeth K Barr – First Lady of GSC and avid fan of IL Morris and his money

Janice Cannan Weldon –South Carolina Attorney, Student Coastal Carolina University

I wonder if that’s where they found Larry Porter?  Just asking!

Note that good ole Dr Barr had another interest or two.

He owned Barr Holdings LLC while living in North Myrtle Beach and was also employed by Burroughs & Chapin Company which is deep in Myrtle Beach real estate development.

A fine prospect for a husband, huh Liz?
Was he a widower?

Don’t know that his heart was really into anything else but it makes him a fine candidate for GSC purposes.

No wonder Coastal let him go so easily.  Just ask the trustees Butcher & Butcher of Gilmer Housing Partners.  He was the right man for the job!  Had the right mind set to just play ball.

Now what to do with a lawyer?

And not a very good lawyer per the South Carolina Supreme Courts per curiam opinion which dismissed her case as improvidently (do look that up) granted back in 2004.
Having no precedential value or any other value as far as we can tell but to spend someone’s money and take up the Court’s time.

What kind of job do we give Janice whose Weldon and Cannan LLC in Conway hasn’t filed an annual report since 2003?

Well, I mean, she is a close friend of the Barrs being out of Conway, going to the same school and all and this is Gilmer County.

I know, we’ll create a research department and let the Gilmer County County Commission President call her a grant writer!

I mean after all she’s a lawyer.  She can only practice in South Carolina but who cares.  No one around here knows the difference. She’s a lawyer damn it! Throw $30,000 at her for nothing and along with her salary from GSC she’ll do just fine.

There’s a lot more questioned to be answered about alliances up at the college that go back a long way and bring up some interesting questions about local names but we have enough to think about for now:

I know this, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS COINCIDENCE when it comes to deceiving Gilmer County.

Comment by Anonymous  on  04.12  at  12:09 PM

The former Clerk Beverly Marks needs to be held accountable for following the orders of Timothy Butcher and throwing away and discarding a court order.

That action led to the wrongful death of Ruth Woofter and the Gilmer County Sheriff has attempted to cover up this matter by ignoring the criminal complaint.

Why is Sheriff Metz ignoring the criminal complaint?

Is it to cover up for GERALD B HOUGH not using due diligence in the fact that he hid this same one sixth when it was being sought by the circuit court and WV Supreme Court!

Now we hear Bob Minigh backs this misconduct and we are shocked and surprised that he would support such a criminal endeavor!!

Does Bob Minigh just back the people accused of the criminal actions?

Or does Bob back the crime?

I want to hear from our own magistrate on this one. Speak up Bob we want to hear this from you!

Comment by Citizens of Gilmer County  on  04.12  at  01:24 PM

Is anyone tracking progress with the Gilmer Housing Partners lawsuit? There are two more of them the College is involved with, right? One deals with a land dispute at the new dorm site and the second involves a lawsuit against the American Baptist Church. If any of this is wrong please make corrections Dr. Barr.
