Fred Hill was KILLED by the Crooks from Crooked County!

Goodman, and partner Denis Moynihan were confronted by lobbyists for AMERICAN JUSTICE at Oberlin College in OHIO!!

By Rina McCoy – Crooked County Crooks Editor/Reporter for the Concerned Citizens Free Press

The Council of Conservative Citizens  from the “Gods Country” State reported that Amy Goodman, and partner Denis Moynihan were confronted by lobbyists for AMERICAN JUSTICE and told that the REAL INVESTIGATIVE REPORTERS were on the street exposing corruption, and not writing books and giving speeches at Oberlin College!!

Denis Moynihan was in Ohio, over the weekend, he has overseen the remarkable growth of his TV show Democracy Now! Amy Goodman is an investigative reporter and journalist. Amy Goodman was the host and executive producer of Democracy Now, a national, daily, independent, award-winning news program airing on over 1,100 public television and radio stations worldwide.Denis is now CEO of Free Speech TV.

During this 2012 election season, Democracy Now!’s Amy Goodman and Denis Moynihan are on a national speaking tour to mark the 16th anniversary of the daily, independent, global TV/Radio news hour and to launch their new book:

Denis Moynihan covered protests against the World Trade Organization in Seattle in 1999, which never really amounted to much. Since 2001,
he has participated in the organization’s growth and sustainability, focusing primarily on distribution, infrastructure development, and coordinating special projects and HAS NOT been involved in ANY investigative reporting!!

The Silenced Majority: Stories of Uprisings, Occupations, Resistance, and Hope.

Amy Goodman was bright and responsive during her speech at Oberlin College in Oberlin, OH on Friday shown in this photo which is the cover of her latest book written with Denis Moynihan.

Goodman’s fifth book, The Silenced Majority: Stories of Uprisings, Occupations, Resistance, and Hope, written with Denis Moynihan, will be published this fall. Goodman spoke publicly Friday afternoon, and was asked question of her investigative work, in public, and then it was mentioned to her the FINE WORK being done in West Virginia for exposing corruption by what the Police described as REAL INVESTIGATIVE journalists like Dan Bingman and Lawrence Smith, who have collaborated on several projects that resulted in exposing corruption in West Virginia. WV which was described as a bad cancer connected to the Southern portion of Ohio, has been infested with drugs, drug addicts and corruption to such an extreme as to garner national attention for it soon.

Dave Ramezan and the Gilmer Free Press was mentioned and how a mad little midget circuit court judge by the name of FACEMIRE and a Ferpa Violator/Prosecutor by the name of Gerald B Hough had kept the Gilmer Free Press under a gag order while forcing them to endure EXPENSIVE legal costs on a case that has nothing to do with the operation of the Gilmer Free Press.

Amy Goodman was bright and responsive during her speech at Oberlin College in Oberlin, OH on Friday – but handed the matter over to Moynihan when she was confronted by outspoken lobbyists of justice in Ohio, that are also law enforcement officials, and or officers of the court, that are supporters of the Council of Concerned Citizens and the Central WV Secret Seven Coalition for the success in exposing corrupt public officials, that also includes judges and lawyers in West Virginia. In fact the matter became so heated one member was nearly asked to leave, and then the group caught up to Moynihan and Goodman after the event at a local restaurant and cornered them again and exchanged addresses, phone numbers and e-mails, so that they could be better informed about what real on the street, investigative reporters are doing to expose public officials and corrupt politicians in the state of WV. Goodman and Moynihan were a little miffed by the inference that they were NOT THE REAL DEAL for exposing corruption in the US, but that Bingman, Smith, and Ramezan far out performed them in actually getting facts to expose real crimes of real public officials and bad members of the West Virginia State Police.

The effigy of Dan Bingman getting a talking to by SGT KING at CRJ after Judge Facemire called down there to have another illegal act of torture carried out for exposing judicial corruption involving the 14th district circuit court, and a court that has a widely known CROOK from Crooked County by the name of Gerald B Hough as PA that has proven himself GUILTY of paying state witnesses to falsely testify on the stand.

Goodman and Moynihan were told in so many words, that they were too busy writing books and too far removed from the front lines of corruption in America to be giving any speeches about it at Oberlin College and that maybe they should contact members of the Central WV Secret Seven Coalition to discover for themselves the REAL BATTLES that are taking place for TRUTH, JUSTICE and the American way!

SHERIFF MICKEY MOUSE METZ Nowhere to Be Found while GILMER COUNTY SHERIFF DEPUTY BEATS THE HOLY CRAP OUT OF AN ELDERLY PERSON AND THEN TAKES An Alleged INNOCENT MAN TO JAIL BEATEN BADLY!!

By Rina McCoy – Cosmos Communicator Editor

According to a front page report in the Gilmer Free Press, the Gilmer County Sheriffs department seems to be once again guilty of misconduct and possible criminal actions involving badly beating an elderly person while making and official call to a Gilmer County residence.

“Don Singleton a Gilmer County man is in the hospital due to severe injuries he suffered during his arrest by law enforcement officers on Saturday, January 28, 2012”

According to a Criminal Complaint filed against the Sheriff’s Department with Gilmer County Magistrate Court, Gilmer County Sheriff Deputy Benton Huffman responded to assist West Virginia State Police Trooper Raynor on a Welfare check on Dry Fork Road in Gilmer County.

Donald Singleton severely beaten while being taken to jail!

When they arrived on the scene, State Police Trooper Raynor spoke to Mr. Singelton and asked him where his son Rodney Singleton was.

Soon the officers found out he was not there.

Don Singleton, the local resident, age 76 with a hearing impairment was sitting in his garage with nothing wrong with him at the time.  The sheriff’s department had no warrants.  They entered the Singleton residence where a verbal altercation ensued as a result. Mr. Singleton was arrested for battery on a police officer.

“According to the sheriff’s deputy, they did nothing wrong, but we all heard that one before. The Gilmer County Sheriff has a documented history of false arrests and bringing false charges and allegations against individuals they have targeted for one reason or another!”

Mr. Singleton is currently in Ruby Memorial hospital where he was in critical condition.  He had blood on the brain from head injuries.  His hands were also solid black and blue.  There are knots up and down his back and on his legs.

Take warning Senior Citizens, the Gilmer County Sheriff’s department has a documented history of being liars, and bringing false evidence to grand juries and trial juries, and you could be next.

Gilmer County Sheriff Deputy Casey JONES tried out his Taser‎ on an innocent victim  and YOU could be next!

There is a procedure that law enforcement is supposed to follow and what they did was incorrect.  As a taxpayer, Mr. Singleton was not properly treated.

Gilmer County, wake up and see what’s going on!  This could be your Dad or Mom.  Who is next?

Mr. Singleton never called the law enforcement, didn’t know they were coming, and didn’t invite them into his residence.  Once they were told the individual they were looking for was not there, they should have left, but that was not the case!

Council of Conservative Citizens – GERRY HOUGH Gilmer County Prosecutor is a CRIMINAL and will be held accountable!

Attention Gerald B Hough, you are hereby being notified that you will be held accountable for your false prosecutions and criminal activity. You will be pursued relentlessly as well as your cohorts in crime for your continuing and ongoing criminal activity, which also includes purposely not bringing rape cases forward.

Your criminal acts and serious crimes under the guise as prosecuting attorney for Gilmer County will be made public for all to see, and for all to make up their own minds in the court of public opinion, every day, every week, and every month of 2012.

You Gerald B Hough will be made to pay for damages via criminal tort for criminal negligence, and the tax payers of Gilmer County via the County Commission will not be happy they have to foot the bill for your blatant misconduct.

Gerald B Hough with daughter Carly Hough who brought the hard booze on the bus to the State High School Volley Ball tournament in Charleston recently. Contributing to the delinquency of minors is not against the law when your DAD is the prosecutor.

The local WV chapter of the Council of Conservative Citizens will regale the people with stories of WACO OIL AND GAS and IKE MORRIS involving payoffs via paper bags filled with cash transferred in parking lots in the dark of night while high-ranking elected officials crouch in back seats.

You people in Gilmer County which also includes local law enforcement will be exposed for your criminal activity and so will the state govt that supports such acts.

In West Virginia even the Governor EARL RAY is crooked as fuck.

But, when IKE MORRIS has US SENATOR JOE MANCHIN literally in his pocket, well then the entire cheating situation is scaled to a matter to be handled by professionals only.

You owe some serious debts in cash and ass Gerald B Hough and we aim to collect both if necessary.

I am WHITE FANG from the Central WV SS and I have been specially trained to rid Crooked County of the wicked and evil. My relatives grew up along the Crooked River and made that their home, just to lose it all to some corrupt public officials from Gilmer County. I have been trained to identify enemies and alert my master to their presence. I know what Gerald B Hough looks like and smells like and hopefully I will know the taste of evil if the gods provide good hunting. Don’t worry! It will be JUST OK, for then we can all say, “Oh, No foul play…but what a mess!”

MERRY CHRISTMAS! Gilmer Free Press Reports FOIA lawsuit against CROOKS from CROOKED COUNTY!!

G-FYI™: Legal Action against Clerk and Gilmer County Commission for Withholding Information image West Virginia’s Freedom of Information ACT (FOIA) was enacted to give citizens access to information to which they are entitled.

Monday, December 26, 2011

Elements of the act were detailed eloquently by Mr. Darrell McGraw, the Attorney General of West Virginia (Google WV FOIA). The ACT’s purpose is to keep citizens fully informed to enable them to independently evaluate performances of our public institutions and its officials. Gilmer County has a sordid history of willful withholding of information by its officials. However, with emergence of the information age, veils of secrecy are beginning to unravel.

For a prime example, Mr. Lawrence Smith, an investigative reporter for the West Virginia Record known as West Virginia’s Legal Journal, initiated legal action to achieve disclosure of the County Commission’s settlement of a recent lawsuit.

The defendants in Mr. Smith’s court filing are Ms. Jean Butcher and the Gilmer County Commission. The filing related to the aftermath of the River’s View housing project by the Gilmer Housing Partners, LLC for which Terry Butcher and Timothy Butcher, local attorneys, are key individuals.

After construction occurred at the site a lawsuit was filed in Federal Court. The allegation was that there was improper recording of lien information for the property.

The Commission as one of the defendants lost the case to come under a Federal order to pay a penalty, but details about the penalty were kept secret from citizens.

 Mr. Smith requested information three times. After refusals to respond, he filed a complaint for declaratory and injunctive relief with Judge Facemire to plea for disclosure of the information.

A copy of the filing and the third FOIA request are provided below. In his third request, Mr. Smith stated that the penalty for noncompliance is “punishable by a fine of up to $1,000, 20 days in jail or both.” Citizens await Judge Facemire’s important decision.

The issue is crucial for citizens because without full disclosure of essential information, accountability, the bulwark of our democracy, is impossible.

There is a new controversy over actions by Judge Richard A Facemire involving one of the longest lasting court cases in Gilmer County history. The “Travesty of Justice” case that got a vote of 3 to 2 during the final argument phase was in WV Supreme Court all of 06 and most of 07. Jessica H Donahue Rhodes from the Lawyer Disciplinary Counsel was recently caught on tape releasing info regarding misconduct by Judge Facemire while she was being asked what happened to the evidence submitted that proved that Gerry Hough was involved in a conspiracy to hide a title and evidence from the Circuit Court and WVSC. She, un prompted ...went into a defense as to why no action was taken against Facemire when the question was simply …what happened to the evidence against Hough Bitch?!

Accordingly, if corrective measures are not ordered by Judge Facemire to keep Gilmer County’s citizens informed, checks and balances, particularly those exercisable in our voting booths, will remain stifled to allow business as usual to reign. Lawsuit filed on Friday, December 23, 2011

IN THE CIRCUIT COURT OF GILMER COUNTY, WEST VIRGINIA Jay Lawrence Smith, an individual Plaintiff, Civil Action No. [11-C-29] v. Honorable [Richard A. Facemire], Judge Jean Butcher, in her capacity as Clerk of the Gilmer County Commission, and The Gilmer County Commission, a political subdivision,

Defendants COMPLAINT FOR DECLARATORY AND INJUNCTIVE RELIEF Now comes the Plaintiff, Jay Lawrence Smith, who states as follows: PARTIES 1. Jay Lawrence Smith (“Smith”) is a resident of Hurricane, Putnam County, West Virginia. 2. Smith is a free-lance legal researcher and journalist whose principal place of business is in South Charleston, Kanawha County, West Virginia. 3. Defendant Jean Butcher (“Butcher”) is a resident of Gilmer County, West Virginia and was, at all times relevant hereto, the Clerk of the Gilmer County Commission. 4. Defendant Gilmer County Commission (“the Commission”) is a political subdivision organized under the laws of the state of West Virginia with an address of 10 Howard St., Glenville, WV 26351. 5. Though independently elected by popular vote, the Clerk is the custodian of all records held by the Commission including, but not limited to, deeds, deeds of trust, Uniform Commercial Code filings and UCC fixture filings. 6. This Court has jurisdiction over this matter and over the parties. 7. As the conduct complained of, and as more particularly set forth herein, occurred in Gilmer County, this matter is properly venued with this Court. FACTUAL BACKGROUND 8. Smith restates the allegations contained in Paragraphs 1-7 9. On or about Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2011, Smith learned of a settlement in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia between the Defendants and Summit Community Bank (“Summit”), a foreign corporation located at 100 West Jubal Early Dr., Winchester, VA, 22601 (Case number ll-cv-39). 10. After it was named as a co-defendant in a breach of contract suit hi the district court on March 10, 2010, Summit filed a third-party complaint against the Defendants on Oct. 25, 2010.

Jean Butcher Crooked County Commission Clerk with help of assistance Angel Ball feel they can make up their own rules, but this is the year we put them both in prison for all the crimes others will blame on them, for they are the fall guys for all the crimes of the past!

In its third-party complaint, Summit alleged defendants bore responsibility for it being named in the original complaint as the Clerk failed to properly record the names of both owners of at least one if not more parcels of property on a UCC fixture filing. 11. Said property/properties was/were previously owned by Gilmer Housing Partners (“GHP”), a domestic corporation located at One Pioneer Drive, Glenville, WV, 26351, and sold to New Horizon Home Sales (“New Horizon”), a domestic corporation located at 3048 Hinton Rd., Athens, WV 26651, and its president, Jack Jones (“Jones”). Also, said property/properties is/are located in the River’s View subdivision along W. Va. Route 5 near the Otterbein United Methodist Church outside of Glenville. 12. Upon learning of the settlement, Smith called Edward McDevitt (W. Va. Bar I.D. #2437) (“McDevitt”), counsel for Summit to inquire about the terms. 13. When contacted, McDevitt said ‘“You’ll need to speak with their [Butcher and the Commission’s] attorney about that.‘“ 14. Upon concluding his call with McDevitt, Smith called Wendy Greve (W. Va. Bar I.D. # 6599) (“Greve”), counsel for Butcher and the Commission in the third-party complaint, about the terms of the settlement as instructed by McDevitt. When he was unable to speak with Greve, Smith left her a voice-message requesting it. 15.

Out of an abundance of caution, the next day, Wednesday, Oct. 12, Smith sent a Freedom of Information Act (“FOIA”) request to Butcher. In his request, Smith sought the following information: A. The terms of the settlement. B. The total payout made by the county either through its general revenue fund or a third party. C. The names of all third parties making said payments. D. The total payout made by either the county or any third parties to the lawyer(s) or law firm(s) representing the county (Attached as Exhibit “A”). 16.

The FOIA request was sent to Butcher and the Commission via e-mail, fax and U.S. Mail. 17. When Smith failed to receive a reply from Butcher within the statutory five business days, Smith sent her a second FOIA request dated Oct. 22, 2011. The request was again sent to Butcher and the Commission via e-mail, fax and U.S. Mail (Attached as Exhibit “B”). 18. When Smith, once again, failed to receive a reply from Butcher within another five business days of his second FOIA request, he sent her a third request dated Nov. 11, 2011. The third request was once again sent to Butcher and the Commission via e-mail, fax and U.S. Mail (Attached as Exhibit “C”). 19. In his third FOIA request, Smith notified Butcher, and the Commission that if the information he requested was not forthcoming by Wednesday, Nov. 16, he would bring a complaint for declaratory and injunctive relief before this Court. 20. On multiple occasions following submission of all his FOIA requests, Smith attempted to avoid filing the instant suit by making repeated phone calls to Greve seeking the terms of the settlement.

All the calls he made to Greve were routed to voice-mail, and never returned. 21. The failure of Butcher, the Commission and Greve to provide Smith the details of the settlement in Summit’s third-party complaint against the Defendants has prompted the instant suit. ARGUMENTS 22. Smith restates the allegations in paragraphs 1 -21. 23.

The West Virginia FOIA law, W. Va. Code 298-1-3(1), states: “Every person has a right to inspect or copy any public record of a public body in this State, except as otherwise expressly provided by section four [29B-1-4] of this article.“ 24.

The Crooked County Commission Clerk with the CROOKED AS HELL Secretary of State of West Virginia the NO TALENT former small market TV personality with standing with Angel Ball, all three guilty of conspiracy to hide evidence that proves a felony in election fraud from November of 2010, these people are smiling because they rigged an election and got away with it!

Defendants have not provided a reason under 29B-1 -4(1) as to why Smith cannot see the information first requested in his Oct. 12, 2011, FOIA. 25.

Instead, Defendants have wantonly, maliciously, deliberately and vexatiously failed to respond to any of Smith’s FOIA requests. 26. Smith’s interest in this action outweighs any arguments for non-disclosure. Moreover, the information requested is public information. WHEREFORE, the Plaintiff prays that this Court: 1. declare that the Defendant’s refusal to disclose the records requested by Smith is unlawful; 2. grant injunctive relief, enjoining Defendants from withholding records without justification and ordering production to Smith of records improperly withheld; 3. grant a permanent injunction requiring the Defendants to undergo training for better understanding of W. Va. Code 29B, and implement a plan for more timely responses to FOIA responses; 4. award Smith his costs and reasonable attorney fees incurred in this action, as required by W. Va. Code 29B-1-7; and 5. grant Smith such other relief as the Court may deem just and proper.

Bennett, Superintendent of Gilmer County Schools, addressed the Board regarding the audit findings.

Dr. Seal recommended that the Board issue Nonapproval status to the Gilmer County School System, declare that a state of emergency exists in the school system, and pursuant to W. Va. Code 18-2E-5(p)(C), intervene immediately in the operation of the school system in the areas of finance, facilities, personnel, instructional programs, and policy development.

3)     that the State Board declare that a state of emergency exists in the Gilmer school system based on the information presented in the OEPA report.

4)     that the State Board find that the conditions precedent to State Board intervention in a county school system are present in this instance.

5)     that the State Board find that it would not be in the best interests of the students of Gilmer County to delay intervention for any period of time.

6)     that the State Board limit the authority of the Gilmer County Board of Education as to the expenditure of funds, the employment and dismissal of personnel, the establishment and operation of the school calendar, the establishment of instructional programs and rules and any other areas designated by the State Board by rule and delegate decision-making authority to the State Superintendent regarding these matters.

7)     that the State Board delegate to the State Superintendent the authority to conduct hearings on personnel matters and school closure or consolidation matters and subsequently to render the resulting decisions, and the authority to appoint a designee for the limited purpose of conducting hearings while reserving to the State Superintendent the authority to render the resulting decision.

Staff Development 2011-2012

Dr. Dixie Billheimer (distributed copies of attachments S-1 and S-2), Chief Executive Officer, West Virginia Center for Professional Development, provided an overview of the 2011-12 master plan for statewide professional development.  W. Va. Code §18-2-23(b) and §18-2-23 require the WVBE to establish annual professional development goals to “ensure high quality teaching” in the public schools and to approve a plan to achieve these goals. The purpose of the Master Plan is to coordinate delivery of the professional development offered by the WVDE, the West Virginia Center for Professional Development, the eight RESAs, and the teacher preparation institutions of West Virginia University and Marshall University.

Upon motion by Dr. Johnson, seconded by Dr. White, the Board unanimously approved the 2011-2012 Master Plan for Statewide Professional Staff Development and evaluation plan.  (Copy appended to Official Minutes, Attachment S-1 and S-2.)

XXIX.    Approval of Statewide Waiver to Test
Prior to May 15 for the 2011-2012 School Year

Mr. Robert E. Hull, Assistant State Superintendent, Division of Curriculum and Instructional Services, and Ms. Sonya White (distributed information), Assistant Director, WVDE Office of Assessment, requested that the Board approve of a statewide waiver to test prior to May 15 for the 2011-2012 school year.  Per House Bill 4040, counties are afforded some flexibility during the upcoming school year in selecting instructional term dates.  The WVDE noticed many of the calendars scheduled the last instructional day prior to or on May 25, 2012.  This information, combined with the other exams and sporting events has led WVDE to propose a three week WESTEST 2 test administration window.  This window will take place May 7-25.  W. Va. Code §18-5-45 states:  “The state board may not schedule the primary statewide assessment program prior to May 15 of the instructional year unless the state board determines that the nature of the test mandates an earlier testing date.”  The Office of Assessment and Accountability believes that a statewide waiver for earlier testing will uphold the intent of increased program flexibility and still meet legislative requirements.

Upon motion by Dr. Johnson, seconded by Dr. White, the Board unanimously approved the statewide waiver to test prior to May 15 for the 2011-2012 school year.  (Copy appended to Official Minutes, Attachment CC.)

Upon motion by Mr. Dunlevy, seconded by Ms. Phillips, the Board unanimously approved Policy 2340.  (Copy appended to Official Minutes, Attachment T.)

XXXI.    Policy 2510, Assuring Quality of Education:
Regulations for Education Programs

Mr. Hull presented Policy 2510 for the Board’s consideration Policy 2510 was placed on public comment for 30 days at the April State Board meeting.  The proposed changes to Policy 2510 reflect the first phase of revisions to occur over the next several months.  Revisions include the elimination of time constraints for teaching particular subjects at the elementary and middle school level; remove expired graduation requirements; condense current graduation requirements into one cohesive set, and other minor revisions.  Eighty-one (81) comments were received during the comment period resulting in minor language changes to the policy for the purpose of clarity with no substantive change in content.

Upon motion by Dr. Johnson, seconded by Ms. Phillips, the Board unanimously approved Policy 2510.  (Copy appended to Official Minutes, Attachment U.)

XXXII.    Policy 2525, West Virginia’s Universal Access
to a Quality Early Education System

Mr. Hull presented Policy 2525 for the Board’s consideration.  Policy 2525 was approved to be placed on a 30-day comment period after revisions for continuous quality improvement of WV’s Universal Pre-k system were made and presented at the April State Board meeting.  Ten (10) comments were received during the comment period resulting in no changes to the policy.

Upon motion by Dr. Johnson, seconded by Mrs. Manchin, the Board unanimously approved Policy 2525.  (Copy appended to Official Minutes, Attachment V.)

Authorizing Investment in the Consolidated Fund

They’re all spies down in Crooked County down by the Crooked River!

By Hurricane Rina McCoy-Central WV SS/Editor Edison – Cal Patty Press Editor with music and color

I awake to find no peace of mind

When the dead body of FRED HILL they did find

I said, how do you live as a fugitive like a member of the SS

Down here where I cannot see so clear,

But that Casey Smith certainly seems queer

You ask what do I know

The State Police just say…

“Hey JOE!” Where ya goin with that gun

Show me the right way to go.

I just don’t know, but the VILLE is an EVIL THRILL!

The elite think evil is fun so they gotta run…

And the spies came out of the water down by the Crooked River

You’re feeling so bad ’cause you know that they killed yet another

Just like the other

That’s why the spies hide in every corner

With the SS man a chief mourner   …at the memorial

But you can’t touch them no way their big dogs say

Or you will be eaten straight away

‘Cause they’re all spies

For in the tallest mountains the Ghost Wolf is still free

They’re all spies down in Crooked County down by the Crooked River

They’re all spies

I awake to see that no one is free but blood still drips from thee

Black cats and midnight tales bring Crystal Metz all too close to the unsolved murder of Fred Hill given the fact she was there and became annoyed by Fred when he pinched her ass and some said she vowed revenge right then and there. Then, just after the midnight hour a short time later Fred disappeared directly into the Crooked River behind the bar where he was drinking with a co-worker that night.

Because we are all spies
We’re all fugitives from the elite
Look at the way we give

And look at the way they live
Down here, some cannot sleep from fear, No!

But no fear they say is the SS way
I said, which way do I turn when I learn that everything is corrupt

We can not go belly up when they’re all spies
Oh, I forget everything but I remember a lot, because I am all spy

Those Crooks come down from the Hill down by the Crooked River

The Spies came all the way from the sea
But you’re feeling so bad cause ya know you ain’t free
Though spies hide out in every corner
But you can’t touch them, no, you can only see
The Dark Woods of Crooked County holds secrets

Cause they’re all spies

“The DARK WOODS of CROOKED COUNTY HOLDS SECRETS”

FRED IS DEAD ...just like the CalPatty Press said, a long time ago!

DID WV STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION MAKE GCHS PRINCIPAL LOOK LIKE A FOOL?

image

The county is abuzz with the news of the hostile takeover of Gilmer County schools by the WV Department of Education.

Nasia Butcher, Gilmer County High School principal, was made to look like an ignorant redneck hillbilly when the Dept. of Ed. took over Gilmer’s schools.

For years, Butcher bragged about Gilmer County’s schools every chance she got.

Gayle Manchin really put Butcher in her place when she condemned Gilmer’s high performing educational system.

Now what makes Gayle an expert?

Well, she was appointed by her husband, the WV Governor then, the U.S. Senator now.  Isn’t that a conflict of interest?

I would say that Gayle is not setting a good example for county boards by accepting a position from her husband.

So how is that any different than a board member in a small county hiring his daughter for a job that no one else is certified to teach?

Gilmer County does not have people standing in line waiting for all these HIGH paying teaching positions.  The only people who want to live in Gilmer County are its longtime residents who have raised their children here.  Shouldn’t we hire our children to work in the county?  Of course we should.  It raises our tax base and we know that they will spend their lives and their money here.

Now when the prison was proposed, Gilmer Countians were promised several hundred high paying jobs.  You can count those jobs on one hand.  Most of the jobs were given to people who live outside of Gilmer County and certainly do not buy anything here.  Prison workers do not even pass a gas station on their way to work.

I have never met Gayle Manchin, but she sure sounds like a blonde to me.

The TRUTH about GERALD B HOUGH Gilmer County Prosecutor — WV State Police Come Clean And Want HOUGH GONE!! PLUS A TELL ALL About How IKE MORRIS Bought Himself A Town!!

By Editor Edison -Free Bird and Rina McCoy for the Central West Virginia Secret Seven Coalition and the Revenge of the Ghost Wolf Website

The Council of Concerned Citizens of Gilmer County and the Secret Seven Coalition of Central West Virginia have joined together on a joint political journey to expose a great many wrong doings — one of which led right straight to the governor and the Secretary of State Natalie Tennant!!

“Hey Natalie, why don’t you go back to being a baby sitter for the Power Elite Bitch!!”

I will tell you what Natalie, you had a lot of fucking nerve sending your bullshit investigator into our town to come up with a situation that you could easily cover up and then say it was all handled and the election fraud was just a couple of misdemeanor errors, but what about the felony violations of the law?  WTF?

You sent your girl straight to the home of IKE MORRIS Natalie! Way to go, we knew you were Crooked then, for it was all witnessed by the Central WV SS!

Hey Natalie miss SoS did you forget, there were a couple of recording modules that mysteriously disappeared and then reappeared during the night in question and Beverly Marks changed her usual procedure of reporting counts of individual precincts?

But, then you are using Gerry Hough to make sure that evidence is tampered with and or comes up missing, for Gerry is already implicated in a cover up regarding evidence and we got the details recently from the State Police — and they are pretty pissed off about Gerry Hough’s best friend SGT CJ ELLYSON selling evidence out of the evidence locker and then Hough being appointed Special Prosecutor covering up the matter and letting his State Police Sgt friend ELLYSON off on all of the charges!!

You people are nothing but criminals and we can prove it and we will! Bitch!

Why the fuck would we even consider you as a Governor Natalie when you are obviously deep into the pockets of IKE MORRIS?

Fuck that we are done with all of your corrupt bullshit! Go back to babysitting bitch!

In fact, if you piss  us off again, we will get a hold of some of your old air – checks from when you did your local TV- Work  and do a professional critique of them and let everyone know you were nothing but a small market “No Talent HACK!” with absolutely no future in broadcasting!

One of our dudes has all the credentials and the experience at TWO – MAJOR MARKET TV Stations notched on dudes gun. We are from the big leagues bitch!!

Geez Louise, how high up the ladder did you make it to market 104? … when our dude made it to the top 15 and even did a brief sting in market 4! Oh man you were really hitting the big leagues there girl!!  You almost made it to the Top 100 markets in the United States!

Jesus Natalie you could not even make it in a top 100 market let alone a top 50 or top 25 or a major market, but you had NO CHANCE of making the big leagues bitch because you suck!! You are one fake fuck and you proved that to all of us!

You may have been able with time and some connections to get yourself into a top 100 market like Madison Wisconsin if you sucked enough dick, but making cheese in  Madison would have been about as far as you were ever gonna go Tennant!

“So take your cock-sucking no talent ass and keep it in Charleston because we don’t need you around here!”

But, as far as any of us know, it might have been your knee pads that got you the Secretary of State gig, but we sure can’t see it on your merit alone, except for the fact you had IKE to back you with the big bucks!

Great progress was made this past week by local CCC and SS factions and many state and federal agencies were contacted and we have received a rather large box size filled with replies and complaint forms to be filled out and notarized along with statements from our investigation team and attorney on various illegalities and violations involving misconduct and criminal activity of some very big names of some very powerful people from Gilmer County.

You may notice this article carries three authors on the by-line above and that is because this article contains three separate contributions since one SS member is also a member of the Council of Concerned Citizens.

But, at least six people are responsible for gathering all of the information we are going to share with you!

The West Virginia SECRET SEVEN Coalition was formed in 2006 and it was a union of the Calhoun Underground, the LMR Newsletter, Crooked County Crooks website and on 5 February 2007 the SS Flagship became the CalPatty Press!

Most people these days want to remain anonymous. We are surprised to learn even the highest ranking State Officials recognize the fact of who they are talking to and who we represent.

We represent the NEW FOURTH ESTATE in West Virginia. We are working with mainstream reporters and are happy to say many of our articles are covered by mainstream sources now, for we are the ones they come to sometimes for documents and facts!

Now, we do admit to using strong arm tactics a couple of times to get the cooperation needed on a couple of occasions, but “Whatever it Takes,” is our motto, since we are going up against people and public officials that follow absolutely NO RULES at all.

“So, the new rules are, there are no rules!

As soon as we figured that one out … we have had great success!”

Unfortunately, we are in possession of documents that we can not share with you yet since we promised a mainstream reporter we would not use them until after we had accomplished a few tasks and carried out interviews.

This week a high ranking member of the Council of Concerned Citizens talked to Dawn Warfield — who is the Deputy Attorney General for the state of West Virginia  and I spoke with Virginia Lanham who is counsel for the superintendent of the State Police.

These top-notch high ranking members of the West Virginia government would never get on the phone with a member of the Council of Concerned Citizens for Gilmer County unless they already knew a Public Relations POOP STORM  was about to rein down on their head because of the wrongdoing of Gerald B Hough!

…And that the REAL TRUTH ABOUT GERALD B HOUGH was going to break in the mainstream press and even possibly go regional!

As soon as it was mentioned to Dawn Warfield that her boy Robert Goldberg presented evidence in his brief  considered in the majority opinion of the “Travesty of Justice” case that was completely false — and not part of the court record she said,” Bob Goldberg works for me!”

Warfield was then made aware that the facts Goldberg brought to the West Virgina Supreme Court were not mentioned in the court record, and further, never was a part of the court testimony that included old rusted junk farm equipment Gerald B Hough falsely stated to a grand jury was worth brand new retail prices .

Deputy Attorney General - Dawn E. Warfield

Goldberg stated that rusted junk (presented as new) was on a separate hundred acres that was NOT heir-ship property !  Goldberg lied to the West Virginia Supreme Court and now rumor has it Goldberg states, “That’s what the Gilmer County Prosecutor told him!”

It was then that Warfield made the statement for the record that, “These mistakes are hard to fix!”

Personally speaking we could give a fuck if they are hard to fix, we say get up off that Power Elite Golden Throne and earn your state paycheck by bringing the misconduct forward and “Fixing it!”

Warfield was also questioned as to why the head of the Police Standard division was even given  the complaint against Gerald B Hough — since this was never any part of any State Police investigation at any time.

“We knew then, that we had established how the State Police cover up in-house crimes and our mission that day was accomplished and this information will be used against the state in court!”

Then, it was mentioned that a CRIMINAL TORT for criminal negligence was being readied against the Gilmer County Sheriff and the Gilmer County Commission — and surprisingly Warfield became defensive and said, “Good luck with that we all have immunity!”

Actually, I was somewhat surprised by the defensive stance of Dawn Warfield, but she maybe should read up on Federal law action involving a proven bad faith prosecution, for everyone has their immunity stripped from them, because it can be proven they broke the law to bring the case forward and that is exactly what happened in Gilmer County!

At that point of the conversation being a Council of Concerned Citizens member, I was more than happy to be referred to Virginia Lantham who was the attorney behind Col Pack  — the former Superintendent of the State Police who we made the original complaint against Hough to!

Virginia Lantham was  a person kept from our reach on many occasions, so I was happy to report to her that her not recognizing new evidence in a criminal complaint made against Gerald B Hough was duly noted and would be brought forward in federal court.

It was Lantham’s absolutely ridiculous explanation via letter from Major Ingold — as to why the state was going to pass on the complaint that got that very same complaint picked up by the Special Investigations Unit of the US Attorney’s office!

Her letter that was delivered by Major Ingold head of Police Standards division of the State Police was literally laughed at by investigation attorneys for the fact they did not recognize- against rules of procedure, I may add, the new evidence brought forward!

We were sent on a mission by an attorney investigating this wrongdoing since 2006, but never in a million years did we figure on discovering how West Virginia manufactures a very expensive cover- up of a case that cost the state of WV nearly 750, 000.00 dollars to falsely prosecute — thanks to the stupid as fuck Gerald B Hough!!

That action made the State Police liable  and also led to our formal complaint against Colonel Pack and then we were thrilled shortly after our formal complaint — Colonel Pack was sent packing just like the article requested written by the President of the Council of Concerned Citizens in the GFP involving the murder that Hough let happen in our home town involving Everette Campbell named by the SS as 357 Evey!

                                                                                      

Also another lengthy talk was had with a representative of the State Police that spoke for troopers of the rank of Sgt or below, which often have opinions usually different than the high brass, in which they have little contact with — when being deployed on the street fighting crime.

We were shocked to learn that Gerald B Hough has dropped some drug charges on people caught by the State Police with drugs!

Gerald B Hough Prosecuting Attorney for Gilmer County took the opportunity to communicate a situation that was NOT EVEN CLOSE TO THE TRUTH to 350 public officials conveniently gathered who could also serve the purpose of extending support for a situation that was more than falsely reported by Gerald B Hough!

But, because of who their daddy and mommy was, the dope came up missing and the drug charges dropped!!

The Council of Concerned Citizens and the Central WV Secret Seven Coalition were surprised to learn that day that the actual troopers on the street support our efforts and want Hough gone.

Now, we never believed that before, but when it was told to someone of high rank in the SS by a veteran WV State Trooper, someone we respect, and also someone with multiple years of actual combat experience that had seen it all and then some, well it seemed much more believable.

In fact, that was a very important meeting and called attention to the fact that our entire reality of the situation had to be re-evaluated  … for we  never believed the troopers on the street not only supported our effort, but hoped that we succeeded in having Hough removed from office!

It was a decisive moment for our highest ranks, for then we all felt like shit for giving Trooper Smith and others a hard time, and then being unreasonable on more than one occasion and actually using words we were sorry for now. The State Police lower ranks tried to tell us — and more than once and more than twice!

All the while Trooper Smith calmly stated, “Hey well maybe someday you will get it!”

IKE cut a deal with the State Police – It was agreed that IKE would give them the Trio Petroleum Building for their Gilmer County State Police Headquarters for the price of ONE DOLLAR after the trooper I spoke with busted Ike’s son for COCAINE and drug possession while driving his fancy Porsche Sports car, which was seized by federal law for the drug violation.

The deal was contingent on the fact that all charges were dropped and the  Porsche was returned and the seizure papers disappeared. Also the Cocaine all the sudden was unaccounted for.

Hell IKE MORRIS can buy himself a little town in WV and a College all of his own and buy the highest ranks of the State Police along with the Governor!

***

I will tell you what that dumb ass Gerry Hough has told some tall tales about Glenville, WV but …

 Gerry Hough is the numb-nut who went around and told a select few that he was a past secret service agent, and then had lived in a kibbutz in Israel and then married into and lived a total “Hippie” life style!

We got the real story from one of his college buddies who wrote a FICTION account of being a killer secret service agent, and it is a darn good book! So the closest Hough came to actually being a secret service agent according to his friend, is when they were smoking some kick ass hashish from Lebanon while they were washing dishes for room and board.

Hey there ya go Carly, your daddy is a liar again, guess you can go pull them panties to the side again for the college boys at WVU maybe that will make you feel better about things!

Prosecutor: No evidence in rape case!

…was the headline when Hough dropped the case against Edwin Dale Kinnison, just as predicted by the Central WV SS! Search this site or look for some old CalPatty Press files to find the facts out about how GSC is a dangerous place to be for co-eds

It is all part the Barr – Code placed into effect by Peter Barr after black football player Erik Davis was allowed to rape a local 17 year old white girl High School student!

“Don’t lay on your back unless he is Black!”  Seems like Ike Morris’ grand daughter should maybe worry about breaking the bar code from her recent flings with the Black Boys in town that have gotten more white pussy since the riots in Los Angeles!! But POWER ELITE pussy is the best according to the locals. However, we disagree that 16 year old snapper should be allowed, but what the hell it seems to be OK with IL IKE MORRIS so head on!

Just ONE of our hundreds of shots of Power Elite parties featuring the Butcher Bitches and some younger wilder players among the kids of the Crooks from Crooked County that live down by the Crooked River and their fancy friends from out of town-we have noticed there are so many damn bathroom shots it is beginning to look like the Butcher Bitches spent half of their time in the bathroom with their good timing friends.This is a more recent shot, but this is after they snorted the lines that were right under the Bud Lite can.Yeah they were sparkling white lines so it was not the good shit, but it still was Cocaine.

Hough told the press in that article that, “ He has never lost a sexual assault case he has taken to trial,” but that was a complete fucking lie since he lost the Erik Davis case!! So now you see Hough is a phony as fuck lying son of a bitch that needs to be removed from office as soon as we can make it happen!

THE JESSICA SELF CASE was a bungle in the Crooked County Jungle!!

There are only a couple of things that I know about the Jessica Self case for sure.

  1. After it happened SS members spoke with 2 Pizza Hut employees and asked them straight up if she did it.  They said definitely as the cash registers take from the night before always agreed with the bank deposit that she prepared.
  2. They said that she was the only one who took the deposits to the bank and that the amount of the deposit was changed on the slips by the time it was put in the bank and that the bank had notified Pizza Hut of this and their corporate office had been investigating this for some time before the charges were made.
  3. They thought she was taking the money to the bank daily as she took it out the door with her every day.
  4. An SS associate asked Gerry Hough if she was guilty.  He said for sure, that she was the only one who had the money and the case was open and shut. But the case must have been more open than shut, because Jessica Self walked herself right out of the courtroom with a Not Guilty Verdict to all counts and there were several. Hough blew the case by being a bad attorney, he was unorganized and did not have all the facts because he is lazy!
  5. I was called for jury duty (of course I was not put on the jury because they don’t put known SS on juries) but while I was outside a man identifying himself as Jessica’s father told me that they had her up there for trial and that it was not right.  A lot of people had access to that money besides her.  He was distraught so I did not force the issue of the deposit slips being changed regularly before the actual deposit.

My personal belief is that someone at the bank had to be complicit with this for a long time as it would be their responsibility to notify the account holder if the numbers were changed on the deposit slip and they were not the actual one making the deposit.  I know this was done if a change was made on the daily deposit slip for other local businesses I am aware of, they would call and verify that change was made.  I came to the conclusion that whoever had been handling her deposits had been let go or left employment at the bank and a new teller taking the deposit had turned her in. Gerald B Hough fucked this case up to high heaven! Ask Karen Elkin! She knows!

"She's gonna do it!" "She' gonna do it!" Pull em to the side Carly! Carly Hough party animal on the right is gonna show us a sight! From what we been a told, Carly Hough daughter to Gerald B Hough was passed around the boys at the IKE MORRIS COLLEGE on the hill like a joint of Marijuana!

I believe Jessica did the deed and I believe the reason her “Father” approached me was to gain my sympathy so I wouldn’t open my big mouth to the wrong person and question Hough about it when he came in.

Another thing I question in the jury selection process is why they always call employees of the Federal Prison for duty (guards).  That would not fly in most states, as it is well known they are prejudiced by their job and believe every one in the joint is guilty. I can’t believe a defendant’s attorney would want them on there unless they are in on the fix like F John Oshoway was on the Travesty case.

Follow that with giving the head honcho of the prison and honorary doctorate degree from GSC which is so weird to me that a basically “Junior” college can even bestow a doctorate.  It seems  a vain, arrogant and stupid action by a bunch of pompous asses to me.  I guess they can do it, they have, but I’d love to hear what someone at the Higher Education Policy Commission really thinks about it.

                                                                                            

“There’s 350 jobs” at the prison, Ike Morris recently told the State Journal “We haven’t done a real good job on preparing ourselves for all these workers who drive from Braxton, Harrison and Nicholas counties. We need to provide them with some good single-family housing here in Gilmer County and build our community.” Therefore IKE set out with the Butchers to form Gilmer Housing Partners with Peter Barr and GSC!! The Butcher and Butcher law firm was brought in to do what they do best, which is rip people off for multiple thousands of dollars! Hell IKE MORRIS has bought himself a college and the whole god damn town of Glenville and in the weeks to come GSC is gonna be hit with more FOIA requests than you can shake a Crooked Stick at!! Oh damn, I forgot that is top secret shit, but we already have the documents thanks to Morris employee's Leslie Ward from GSC and down Pat - Pat Ward from WACO Oil and Gas! Thanks!! You would NOT BELIEVE how much the Power Elite pay in lawyer fee’s to get themselves out of hot water, but the SS will show you very soon!

TARA KENNEDY ALL LIT UP -- Brian Kennedy has turned out to be an irresponsible County Commissioner since his attendance lately is a NO SHOW. Rachael L. Fletcher Cipoletti, Chief Lawyer Disciplinary Counsel on19 May 2011 ordered documents be released and provided for law action that proves Kennedy lied on Gilmer Court documents!

It has been unbelievably easy for IKE MORRIS (shown above with West Virginia football coach Rich Rodriguez) leader of the elite to control job placement and commerce in this county through manipulation of its Boards and the County Commission as evidenced by who is placed on the boards and who is elected to office.

JESUS H CHRIST IKE MORRIS HAS BOUGHT HIMSELF A WHOLE DAMN TOWN!!

For example his own secretary sat for years as Treasurer of the Ambulance Authority and on the GCEDA Board of Directors and his wife Sue Morris sits as President of the GSC Board of Governors, his son is on the Morris Foundation and Alumni Board and to top it all off he employs Gilmer County Commissioner Brian Kennedy at Sue Morris Sports Complex which received 250,000 in 2008 from the Morris Foundation as a “Charitable Contribution” and whose Director is Marc Monteleone the Operations Manager for WACO.  You remember, partner in Bowles & Rice Law Firm which represents GSC and the County Commission as bond counsel? Yes it is unbelievably easy to do what you want to do in Gilmer County as long as you belong.

To hear them tell it they are now going to forgo the facade of GCEDA and seem to be  admitting that any development in this county is not only paid for by them but also planned by them.  We have not seen one county referendum on a ballot and are pretty sure we won’t in the future.

Life is unbelievably good in Gilmer County if you’re an Oil and Gas Magnate!

IKE, Dude!! You’ve made your money and now it’s just all about playing the power game and baby do you have it.  It is your vision and it will become reality no matter who likes it!!

IKE MORRIS seems to actually own the State College at Glenville and actually the whole god damn town, and he has some Crooked as fuck attorneys appointed in powerful positions at GSC to protect his interests!

At the time this photo was taken of Lexie Butcher her dad R Terry Butcher was on the Board of Governors at Glenville State College - This photo was taken just before that barely hanging on top was popped! Hey Lexie, ya gotta a little something on those lips girl, better wipe your mouth, looks like you got splashed!!

Hate to tell you Gilmer County but most of the citizens that live here and support these causes paying property taxes are not of the correct “quality” to participate or make any decision about this life they are supposedly building for “you”.

IKE brags on the 350 or so jobs at FCI Gilmer but by his own admission these jobs are not employing residents of Gilmer County.

The housing they look to develop using Glenville State College as for profit front of the Riversview Project was always intended for the commuters from surrounding counties.  They have the experience and seniority to run that facility even though we have built a new Criminal Justice program.

College was always fun for little sister Lizzie Butcher, pictured left with her tongue soon to be headed far down the throat of her former best pal from the box banging video that still has not been broadcast via broadband yet, but hopefully sometime in the near future they will be posted in celebration of the day the Butcher Bitches Broke Bad on the CalPatty Press during the Summer of Twenty-Ten!!

Get a clue, these people have years invested in the system and have no intention of moving their families to Gilmer County when they retire.  Their cash goes back to where their life is.  That’s where their investment are — and where they will stay. Only temporary needs monies are spent in Gilmer County such as tank of gas and maybe lunch. Get real!

If any real revenue is ever generated by that for profit group headed by Peter Barr (which at this point appears to be a loser sitting in Federal Court), it would go into the pockets of the investors. There is nothing new under the sun when it comes to money and power in Gilmer County.

The 24 hour medical center is a lie at this point.  Although that is what was promised, Minnie Hamilton’s representative at GSC reported to the Board of Governors that Minnie Hamilton did not feel they could support a 24 hour facility so what is Plan B?  Is there a real plan B? We can’t even seem to get the air conditioning and a parking lot right at the existing facility on Mineral Road.  (Better watch out Denny Pounds will sign it all away)

We like sports as much as the next person but that’s where the priority lies for Gilmer County and GSC.  There is no emphasis on advancing educational opportunities in order to prepare for any kind of outside competition.  What outside competition?  Free trade is not a welcome phrase in Gilmer County where it’s not what can we do to make you want to come here and open a business but just the opposite.

The question becomes what can you do for those in power if we let you bring your business here?  What can you do for the POWER ELITE ? Can we take your money and your honey?

It can all be good and SLEEZY when you are a dealin with the Crooks that got it EASY  –that are ALL from Crooked County that live down by the Crooked River!!

May 28th

SPECIAL  Memorial Day Weekend Celebration — A SPECIAL FEATURE!

The Ghost Wolf of Crooked County and the “Bubba Dog from Dekalb,” that lived down by the Crooked River!!

In the beginning, the people say, the “White Bubba Dog of Dekalb,”

…Who was the head guard dog and belonged to the Secret Seven of Central West Virginia was put on the Mountain Top!

“White Bubba Dog of Dekalb,” Head Guard Dog for the SS!!

 And the Black Wolf also of the SS was put beside the fire down by the river!

When the winter came the “Bubba Dog,” could not stand the cold, so he came down to the settlement below and drove the Black Wolf from the Fire!!

"...the Black Wolf ran to the mountains, where it suited him!"

The Black Wolf ran to the mountains, where it suited him so well that he prospered and increased and lived happily with SS, until after a while he ventured down again and killed some animals and a few corrupted and evil public officials, but only one of their daughters, in the crooked little town down by the Crooked River below as he felt it was his duty to do!

“The corrupt and evil people got together and followed and killed the Black Wolf, who then by the Power of the Gods in the UNIVERSE became the Ghost Wolf of Crooked County!!”

Black Wolf named,"Stoney" shot by Po Po and left in pool of blood, during hail of gunfire from both sides!

…When on that fateful night of surprise attack the Black Wolf named Stoney was shot by a PO PO Sgt named Ellyson who was also shot and wounded! But quickly and with purposeful speed the Black Wolf’s  dark brothers came from the mountains and with only one purpose and that was to take such Revenge!

The Revenge was so great and so powerful, that it led to rape and plunder and murder!!

The ROAR of the savage tearing and ripping of limbs was Long and Loud mixed with the growls and howls of  the professionally executed attack of the very well trained black as night weapons – brothers to the Black Wolf!

Those crooked public officials that ruled over the minions were ever since that day in Crooked County forever afraid to hurt a Wolf!!

"It was that fateful night that the Ghost Wolf was born!"

But especially the Ghost Wolf who now can be seen high upon the hills above during a full moon, just gazing down, waiting, watching, hopeful that the evil would soon begin again, and it would all repeat over and over and over!!

"The Death of the Black Wolf was taken especially hard by some, but all the SS did live to fight again, another day!!

DECEPTION IN GILMER COUNTY! The Power Elite and the BOG at GSC Say, "Oh What a Tangled Web We Weave, When First We Practice to Deceive!!

By Freebird/Central WV SS-Reporter/Rina McCoy-Editor/Cosmos Communicator/Editor Edison -Editor CCC

If a lie is repeated often enough it becomes the truth!

That’s the way things are done up on the hill in the Ville!

Take a couple of lawyers, toss in a gas & oil baron and his family, maybe a “reliable” friend or two and mix with the President of the institution…

Now there is one hell of a recipe for scandalous and unethical behavior!

In exchange for bought and paid for “loyalty”, boards and organizations are created with great titles and noble purpose.  Unfortunately, the purpose is soon forgotten after a 501c3 not for profit status is obtained from the Federal and State Government.

These so called leaders of the community just forget about EDUCATION.  They just forget that they receive a substantial portion of support from other governmental units, and the general public in the form of tax payer dollars!!

THREADS IN THE WEB:

GSC Alumni Association 501c3 Provides scholarships and funding for general education purposes:  Executive Director Dr. Peter Barr in 2007. Revenue 2008  $2,610,304  Expenses Over 2 million. Total assets over 10 million. Director, D. (I owned McDonalds) Pounds, annual salary of $37,754 paid  in 2008 per 990 filing. Hey, isn’t he also the Vice President for College Advancement?  Wonder what that pays! President Timothy B Butcher.  Members of the board include College Director Sue Morris and Doug per 990.  Mr. Pounds retains the books per the filing!

Big Joe-former WV Governor, Peter Barr and SoS Natalie T-- NONE of "THESE THREE" have turned out to be good for Gilmer County! The Power Elite support Big Joe with Big BUCKS and mostly it is all about the Power Elite putting money in their pocket and the citizens get screwed! Natalie Tennant charged BM, Beverly Marks (former county clerk)with a misdemeanor for voter fraud, and the new County Clerk Jean Butcher with two misdemeanor charges, but it is alleged they are both guilty of felony election fraud for exchanging recording modules in the voting machines. A federal complaint is pending on both the former and current Gilmer County Commission Clerk. Peter Barr GSC President was a partner in the real estate swindle that was just heard in Federal Court!

GSC Research Corporation 501c3 Provides support to the college alone.  3 voting members comprise the board.  Dr Peter Barr, Robert Hardman and Dr. Butler, these are appointed positions but could not verify by whom.  Possibly the Board of Governors. Assets $287,913 in 2008. Had $250,000 of notes and loans receivable.  Books managed by Robert Hardman Purpose to facilitate grants and research.  Gee, is this where the county’s $30,000 went to?  Was that income declared by anyone?

GSC Housing Corporation 501c3 Purpose  to provide residential housing to GSC faculty and staff. Dr Peter Barr and Robert Hardman as officers, Thomas Ratliff (head of maintenance GSC)  and others as trustees. Other salaries and wages paid over $70,000 with $16,000 + in benefits but not ID’d to whom.  Over $599,000 in revenue, public support reported at 98.79%. Books managed by Robert Hardman.

Morris Foundation 501c3 a non operating foundation whose purpose is additional construction and operation of the sports park in 2008.  Who is managing that park in 2010?  A certain County Commissioner related to the Butchers?

This Bullshit is never ending in Crooked County!

Pretty nice salary I hear since  quitting  the college.  But you never really quit do you?

The books are retained by IL’s secretary Sandy Pettit!

This story sounds very familiar doesn’t it?

They all do it the Crooked County way!

GSC Board of Governors- at the time of the action in question R Terry Butcher was a member of the board of governors and, if I am not mistaken, Timothy B Butcher was President of the GSC Housing Corporation.

With the “new” restructuring the wife of IL MORRIS – Sue Morris is current board director!

This is starting to read like a WHO’S WHO of  “Fuck you!”

“We are gonna do what we want to …and make some fat stax of cash too!”

GILMER HOUSING PARTNERS LLC: a FOR PROFIT ENTITY Manager and Organizer Dr. Peter Barr per the State of West Virginia and various recordings at the court house.

According to Dr. Barr and multiple news reports this is handled by Mr. Ratliff, the full time head of Maintenance for GSC and if you will note a trustee of the GSC Housing Corporation as well.

How many pay checks for him and others?

Dr. Barr managed it so well he let the Butchers prepare a $30,000 promissory note by New Horizon (Jack Jones President) to Gilmer Housing Partners on the first sale of the new housing development which originated from Ex- Mayor Putnum to  IL Morris, to the Alumni Association, to the GSC Housing Corporation to Gilmer Housing Partners all tied to the Board of Governors with a resulting suit in federal court tied to the County Clerk’s Office.

The home of corruption for Gilmer County! The Butcher and Butcher Law Firm ignored letter after letter from lawyer after lawyer regarding doing an accounting for the AJ WOOFTER ESTATE - An Attorney for the council on aging Margaret Kreiner stated that the terms of the AJ WOOFTER WILL were not met! A criminal report made to Sheriff Metz was ignored! He stated for the record, "I'm not a gonna go up there and bother them people!" Great job of law enforcement Sheriff Metz!!

Now you can at least follow how the wicked web of deceit is wickedly woven  on the hill in the Ville !!  You got it now!

I hope you can clearly see how attorneys whose membership spans at least three non-profit organizations within the college can participate in the for profit step child of that same body.

What was their bill?

Who are the investors and how much did they put up for seed money?  How are they to be paid back? How much money have they made or lost?  Where does it go?

It’s  all a CROOKED COUNTY MYSTERY!!  Fuck yeah!!

Don’t forget the Crooked President of the college is in it all the same, same.  He knows how the wicked deals are woven, and who runs these organizations at all times, to him it is all a game, game!

Dude tells the BOG what he wants!

Have another drink Peter Barr and don’t forget the BARR code next time you park your car at the bar!!

Don’t lay on your back unless he is black = Barr Code

Those who have a good business sense will know why the President of GSC is placed to interconnect with every back room deal and parcel out the money in the Ville !

Is this mess ethical?  HELL NO!!

I seriously doubt the IRS would find it legal!

Keep that picture in your head. It is all public information for those with the desire for the truth.  Read the latest from Federal Court.

Those Butchers got their asses kicked in federal court!!

Don’t forget that the next time decisions need to be made about what is good for Gilmer County.

But, the Power Elite only think about what is good for putting money in their pocket and to hell with Gilmer County and it’s citizens!

Those Butchers and their Gilmer County Housing Partners in crime can sure weave one wicked web to deceive!!

Here is the US District Court Document that orders the Bullshit company formed by the Butchers to PAY UP BITCHES!!

GILMER COUNTY HOME TO COVER UP'S – SEX SCANDALS – and ABUSE! All Done by The HANDS Of The Glenville Power Elite!!

By Rina McCoy/Cosmos Communicator Editor/Reporter/Revenge of the Ghost Wolf website – the Gate Keeper for Crooked County/Edited by EE

Is it easy to become confused when living in a Gilmer County world?

Is it the water or the bad sewage from the federal prison that did not bring in the revenue promised that makes everyone a little crazy?

Have the Power Elite lost their minds?

These are questions that one asks when pondering the fact that the Gilmer County Sheriff and the Prosecutor for Gilmer County think they can cover up the fact that they PAID a witness to lie in a high profile court case that went all the way to US Supreme Court after spending two years in the 4th district circuit court!

The legal experts from New York to Los Angeles agree that the “Travesty of Justice” junk farm equipment case was a typical arranged trial in which the judge, prosecutor, and defense counsel all had to be in on the misconduct and wrongdoing.

A piece of property was hidden by the court clerk after a court order was issued, which led to a wrongful death –  and Sheriff Metz feels he can cover it up and it will all go away! Why not? All the other cover ups seem to work pretty good, all the rapes and the thefts from the Property Tax payers and all.

Is Metz really that stupid?

The answer is YES he is that stupid.

The facts are never going to go away and are going to be brought forward by every state and federal agency that exists in WV and all the fingers are pointed at Metz and Hough as the bad seeds and the bad apples that thought it all up. Now how is that for being known for something?!

Metz and Hough could soon be hearing from the Ethics committee who were extremely upset over the actions by the elected County Sheriff and the ACLU too were not very happy to hear that the SHERIFF is actively involved in covering up paid perjury and a conspiracy to bring false value of evidence to a Gilmer County Grand Jury and a Trial Jury!

Gilmer County has in turn complained to anyone that will listen to them in Charleston, but one by one, their contacts are giving them the silent treatment and the closed ear because they have already been informed, but by another source, a more truthful source.

The Power Elite have pulled some real shit behind everyone’s back by calling in favors.

In fact these jerk offs from Gilmer County have gotten so involved with our shit, that we can not even label this article with a Category that says GILMER COUNTY!

Catherine Butcher played Basketball for Shepherd University at the beginning of the season, but transferred back home to GSC where she was caught having sex in the copter hanger owned by IL Morris with her private basketball coach Darrell Barnett of the Company owned by Shelly Morris DeMarino, who is rumored to have hosted the WILD Party where the rape of the 16 yr old Lady Titan took place on 22 January!

When we try to add Gilmer County  to the categories either by itself or with another phrase it is erased and can not be published by wordpress on this site.

Now when the Power Elite get involved with your shit to that degree they have simply lost their minds. Our attorney will be writing to Toni Schneider, CEO of Automattic (the parent company of WordPress.com) about that issue soon.

In the mean time if you are doing a search for GILMER COUNTY or GILMER COUNTY, West Virginia you have to look no further than the kind folk at the West Virginia Secret Seven Coalition. We will write back and explain to the person doing the search what complete assholes everyone is that runs GILMER COUNTY and give them some details and some names of family members that we personally know in case they need a reference.

In fact the Gilmer County Power Elite are not just assholes, but criminals too!

We recently let all parties know we are prepared to go to court over any more violations of our right to free speech. Some of us have been jailed for it. Some of us have had our lives and careers ruined over wrongful actions taken by Gilmer County and we have come here today to kick their ass in the courtroom! These people need the holy crap beaten out of them in a federal courtroom and we are hoping to be the people to do it. In fact we can not wait to present facts to a federal judge at the first hearing and reveal other crimes we believe these people are involved in that we have not mentioned to anyone.  We are saving some shit up for just the right occasion to shove down some well greased throats.

Let us look at a HOME GROWN problem regarding SEX in the high school scene and SARAH RUTHERFORD an honor student from GSC  becoming a high school teacher and then being involved in sucking the dicks of her high school students!

Sarah Rutherford, 23 of Belington (formerly of Gilmer County), is charged with sexual abuse. Her mother, JoAnn Rutherford works at GSC as a secretary! Height: 5ft 3in Weight: 110 lbs. DOB: 5/17/1987 Booked: 3/10/2011 Booking ID: 999021511 Barbour County - Bail: $10 000.00 - TVRJ Charge Type: Felon

Sarah gave  them the around the world education to coitus and the fine art of  cunnilingus.

People tend not to think of sex with a young boy (at least with women) as child abuse.  Why can’t they understand how this kind of SEX can screw up their mind? Can’t the teachers teach more about and what positive relationships are about?

I’d be willing to bet that over half of those young boys become abusers of women in the future!

Only someone from GILMER COUNTY, West Virginia could really take on a task like fucking the shit out of her young students in high school with the kind of pride and personal achievement like Sarah Rutherford showed!

Sarah Rutherford from GILMER COUNTY was arrested for having sexual intercourse with under age teenage boys that were students and also there were drugs involved with the sex along with alcohol the CROOKED COUNTY WAY!

Sarah was shown special privilege at GSC from IL Morris who supposedly helped her gain access to the pharmacy program at WVU. We don’t really know what happened with those big plans, but Sarah Rutherford, as it turned out was busy exploring her more sexual nature as any good Power Elite chick would.

Sarah got totally turned out is right when she attended GSC, where she had it made because she was the daughter of a long time Glenville State College employee.

Her mom is JoAnn Rutherford who works at the college as a secretary and she is one hell of a hussy from what we hear! Look out now! We got another daughter of the Power Elite having another wild sexual episode that she wants to share with a select few! It is all part of the Gilmer County Power Elite upbringing! Special favors, special deals, it is all good in Crooked County!

Sarah’s Brother Matt is a very big time druggie, so too bad she did not get the pharmacy gig or Sarah could have been the hookup! With all the privileges they got, they had to screw it up, just like many of the children of the Power Elite do!

This opinion was recently published in the local GFP about another sexual experience involving under age high school students a teacher and coach at Gilmer County High School and an alleged RAPE too! All covered up!!

Isn’t It Better to End It Than A Cover-up? Be Fair to Innocents?!

An intensely discussed issue in Gilmer County is what supposedly happened along Route 33 at the home of a prominent member of the community.

Allegedly, and according to Internet reports, there was a wild party involving GCHS students and authority figures.

Among other things, sex between a coach and a female student and the rape of another female student are alleged.

Reasonable citizens concur that simply because the information was posted on the Internet does not prove the veracity of the reports.

The problem is that many citizens can perceive that something terribly wrong happened and the perceptions can mutate into convictions of fact.

With serious ramifications of reports of the party, why is nothing being done to refute the reports or to verify that they were valid to cause guilty parties to be dealt with?

The homeowner, the coach allegedly involved with sex with a student and the alleged rapist could in fact be totally innocent.

Also, the girls whose reputations were tarnished could be victims of vile rumor, which is a huge concern.

Conversely, if what was reported is truthful, the GCHS principal, the County School Board, and local law enforcement officials, including the prosecutor, are grossly guilty of inaction!

To do nothing causes one more black mark to be stamped on all of us regarding how business is permitted to be conducted in Gilmer County.

We need competent investigative reporters or outside law officials to come to Gilmer County to eke out the facts and to let the chips fall where they may.

The members of the local SS have been trying to meet those needs and have made many friends in Law Enforcement that serve outside the state that have become critical of WV policy and actions.

The GFP also had this to say about the incident with Sarah Rutherford!

A teacher from Philip Barbour High School is facing sexual abuse charges for allegedly having sexual relationships with two students.

Philip Barbour High School HOODIES should sell well for the graduates of SEX EDUCATION, I hear they are making up some more to sell that say I WAS BROKEN IN BY MS RUTHERFORD-Call me when you have no class!!

Sarah Rutherford, 23 of Belington (formerly of Gilmer County), is charged with sexual abuse in the third degree.

Barbour County Sheriff officials say Rutherford had sexual relationships with two students, between August and December of 2010.

According to the criminal complaint, Rutherford supposedly gave one of the students alcohol, marijuana, and prescription drugs on at least one occasion.

Rutherford allegedly had sexual intercourse with the students, and then told them not to tell anyone because she could get in trouble.

Rutherford was sent to jail and was later released on bond.

The Barbour County Sheriff’s Department is investigating.
Update: Addtional information from the criminal complaint

The criminal complaint against Rutherford says she became acquainted with one of the victims, a student a PBHS, in August and September. The two began text messaging and she invited the student to her home, located in Barbour County, where she and the student allegedly had sexual intercourse.

Through September and December, Rutherford allegedly became involved with another PBHS student younger than 18 by initiating contact with the victim at the school to “solicit a relationship!“

The criminal complaint states that Rutherford and the second victim had daily contact with each other, and allegedly three incidents between the two occurred at least once.

Rutherford allegedly provided the student with alcohol, marijuana and Klonopin at her home; she provided the student with money to purchase marijuana for her, which he complied; and Rutherford took the student to her home, where she provided him with alcohol, marijuana and engaged in sexual intercourse.

“The defendant told the victim not to tell anyone about the sexual intercourse because they could get in trouble since she was a teacher and the victim was a student,“ the complaint states.

In our local incident at a party at the home of a member of the Crooked County Power Elite this NO TELL tactic was used again!

Don’t tell about all the WILD SEX and all the DOPE and the BOOZE and the exposed breasts and rape of the unwilling young participant at the home of the Lemegeton – An agent of the Devil!

To all the devils minions …come home to GILMER COUNTY where the difference between GOOD and EVIL runs right down that CROOKED COUNTY LINE!

But don’t tell!
