We as Americans believe in the American Dream and the matter of the American Dream is quite an important matter indeed!  This subject was even given a chapter of it’s own in the book; Revenge of the Ghost Wolf- Publish America!

American Dream—Chapter 21 (An excerpt below from the book)

“WRVA 1140 AM with state and regional news at the top of the
hour! The Special West Virginia Task Force against civil unrest,
commanded by Jay Wilkes has swooped down on a secret
mountain hideaway believed to be one of the many mountain
bases of the CCC…just within the last hour!”

The Operations Post at "CCC base-Black Horse Two" Lil Lissi, Big Edi and the Ranger at the camp!

“The WOWK-TV13 rapid response, eye in the sky, just
moments ago, showed live coverage of several wounded Task
Force members, being attended to on the ground and are unsure
at this time of the number of opposing CCC, now engaged in this
gun battle with the specially trained Task Force!”
“There is no indication so far that the wife of the slain
Congressman, Lisianna Rockefeller, is present at this possible
CCC compound.
“Lisianna Rockefeller is wanted on charges of inciting riots
and causing civil unrest ordered from the Court of Crooked
“Her many publications appearing in WV Newspapers and National Magazines, speaking out about the deterioration of the
middle class and the common citizens loss of rights, she revealed,
were due to greedy public officials hording all the states and
counties resources, and keeping control of industry for themselves!”

“She accused elected officials of controlling the political
agenda of the courts and political parties, and using their

Pointed Rock at the mountain top encampment of the Consolidated Citizens Corp-Elkins WV

influence for only self gain and self involvement!”
“Her numerous speeches when she represented the CCC,
were about individuals being personally responsible, by making
themselves aware and active in change, has led to a public
demand for change at the voting booth, but also made Lisianna
unpopular with State and local public officials. The “We Stand
United” speech has become her signature statement!”
“An American Dream for many in the United States,
Lisianna’ represents freedom!”
“Lisianna Rockefeller explained her version of the American
Dream exists when achieving a state of pure freedom, free from
the choke-hold of money and social structure!”
“In her last speech she stated, “
”Many Americans have become slaves to the dollar, slaves to
the banks, and slaves to the government. We are fighting a fight
to free the slaves…we are fighting a fight to free ourselves!”
An “American Dream” is OUR DREAM! Where Freedom

The character Lisianna Rockefeller in “Revenge of the Ghost Wolf” reminds us about never forgetting our American Dream and never letting anyone take it away! But in Gilmer County, West Virginia the fast talking Power Elite have turned our AMERICAN DREAM into an, “American Pastime”  where you have to…


That’s right in Gilmer County you have to “Play Ball” just to survive!

The NAKED TRUTH is that you have to “Play Ball” just to survive under the totalitarian serfdom existence which is ruled with a firm hand by sticky wicket rulers – a circumstance of the Glenville Elite!!

Oh to be HIGH on the HILL in the Ville!!!!

It’s good to be in “Power”  ruling over Glenville, known as the “Ville.” It’s also good to be the King!  It’s good to determine what business can come to town and survive, who will supervise it and be in total control of its finances and destiny if it doesn’t play ball!!

You better play ball too and maybe prepared to do a few other things or  soon the Butcher and Butcher law firm will have determined if you are gonna “Play Ball” or not!!!!

Better have your ducks in a row buddy!!

IF NOT …. be prepared to pay some sort of concocted, created, painful or other legal consequence!

….or you will be audited by the IRS! Yes You! ..a loyal business owner!

And when it is disclosed to you by the IRS just who it was that turned you in, it was who you thought it  was all along!

“WHO” it was that turned you in? Was that “Who”  “…Hough?”

Although you passed your audit with flying colors, the IRS or some State of WV Agency will show you a letter with the signature at the bottom that reads; GERALD B HOUGH -Gilmer County Prosecutor with a letter saying he was suspicious of YOU!!! Nice!

The GHOST WOLF of Crooked County on these warm nights climbs up higher on the HILL, "Always watching, always looking, always waiting, for his chance at Revenge in the Ville!"

It’s great to have unbeatable connections and a group of flunkies who will believe and do anything you say for money and a little (not too much) power…  Not bad for not hitting the town until the 1960’s and building your own empire. Give me a B, give me a B for BITCH!  …or is that Butcher?

The American dream? In Gilmer County  for the every day working Joe the American Dream becomes a nightmare!

You better have a family name around here buddy!! It better be Morris, or DeMarino, or Kennedy, or Butcher, or Facemire, or Stalnaker or Workman or something fucking pretty cool even Pettit!

“Pettit hell, the last time I did it spit all over me!!”

“Unless you are supplying the hot towels buddy that is the last time I am doing that!”

Unless you’re a member of the old regime that helped gouge out this empire you will not be welcome without more money than any normal person would be willing to invest in this small, dying county.  Or if you have a knack for the underhanded you can become part of that team.

Shut up and we might just give your kid some kind of a job!

Don’t aspire to anything!!

This is fucking Crooked County!!

Don’t ask for anything!

Just do as you’re told and Play Ball Bitch!!

Kind of reminds us of good old Jack Jones.  Have a few shady little businesses in Florida, get to know the right people and you can come on up to Gilmer County.  Man do we have a group of small time crooks there. It’ll be fun!  Don’t worry if you don’t have the money to back it up.  It will be taken care of.  Oh, and if you wind up in court just keep your mouth shut. When I hear the name Jack Jones, well you see the name Marc Monteleone pops right into my head!  Marc Monteleone, isn’t he the Count of Crooked County?!

Now there’s another little business connection that seems more than a little questionable, the Operations Manager for guess who IL IKE MORRIS!!

Marc Monteleone the Count of Crooked County also has been tied to Jack Jones FLA and I L MORRIS FLA businesses as well as Gilmer County businesses and transactions although this fact was denied recently by Sandy Pettit. The Central WV SS confirms the connections so Sandy must be a ridin down that New River a runnin down on into the Crooked River and I think they call it Da Nile or a something like that!!

The name Marc Monteleone  oddly enough, also appears on certain business corporation filings right under IL in Naples. It is more than likely that this middle aged man is connected with a very well known law firm with offices in Charleston.

  • Chairman, West Virginia Design-Build Review Board, by appointment of the Governor
  • Authored West Virginia Design-Build Law
  • Owner of several small businesses, including: Mountain Lion Enterprises, Inc. and Tygart River Oil & Gas, LLC
  • Speaker, White House Conference on Small Business
  • City of Charleston Architectural Review Committee
  • Vision Shared Seamless Education Committee
  • Firm Responsibilities
    • Bowles Rice Chief Financial Officer
    • Chair, Bowles Rice Small Business Development Team
    • Manages Bowles Rice real estate needs, including the construction of new facilities
  • Commerce Committee, Independent Oil and Gas Association
  • Named to Best Lawyers in America (Construction Law; Corporate Law; Tax Law; Trusts & Estates Law)

Marc A. Monteleone

Bowles Rice is  General Counsel to WV Independent Oil & Gas Association!!

Marc Monteleone: Member of Commerce Committee Independent Oil & Gas Assoc.

Chief Financial Officer and Partner of Bowles Rice — Owner Tygart River Oil & Gas LLC, very well educated!!

Now oddly enough a Bowles Rice attorney is representing Summit Bank in the suit with Textron against the Gilmer County Clerk for improper filing of records along with Jack Jones. They have also represented a  certain oil & gas baron!

Can you say conflict of interest?

Can you say the Count of Crooked County – Marc Monteleone?

As mentioned in our last article IL Morris was 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 also?

“Does a Dead Fred not float?  You got that one right!!!”

“Hey Marc, are you affiliated with Bowles & Rice?Uh huh, Yeah!!

Marc Monteleone, Operations Manager for IL Morris, agent on Ikes Realty Corp in Naples Florida.  Marc Monteleone known to the SS as the Count of Crooked County is affiliated with Bowles Rice (Charleston Office) see his picture on their site. Marc Monteleone, also known as the, “Deli Manager,” or  M & M to other associates manages real estate for Bowles & Rice and works with oil & gas title, purchase etc. Bowles Rice represents Summit in the Gilmer County Clerks federal suit has also represented Ike in court on gas/oil issues and such. Now this is good stuff, so the affiliation is obvious!

Marc Monteleone is also a member of Independent Oil & Gas Assoc. and has had an appointment from the Governor and they all know how to, “Play Ball” with Joe Manchin in Crooked County!

Senator Joe Manchin is all about Crooked County and up to his neck in affiliations pertaining to questionable deals, but hey the former Governor now Byrd replacement as Senator is  quite a gem for WACO Oil!

Big Joe is nothing but priceless, and so is Marc Monteleone the Count of Crooked County!!

Also, Ike, Sue Morris  Shelly Morris DeMarino, Doug Morris, Sandy (“I don’t even know Marc Monteleone, in fact I have never fu… I mean heard of him!”)Pettit and her husband along with others and including Marc Monteleone contributed to Mike Rosses campaign! Uh huh!!!

Tell me, do you think there could be a fix in the mix?  Don’t know much, but know one thing for sure!  If there’s a chance to do it crooked it will come straight from the top in Gilmer County.  What do you think? JACK JONES teamed up with the Crooks from

Connie Osentoski, from southeastern Michigan, is the new Administrator for Gilmer County. Not exactly new to the area, Osentoski says she lived here as a child and was drawn back by the beautiful scenery, pleasant people, family and friends. With eight years experience as a legal assistant, Osentoski says she looks forward to working with the community.

Crooked County on the Crooked River View for profit project and also was named in the law suit, but you have to wonder what other crooked deals were born in the hills of crooked county and smoothed through the process by some fancy- dancy lawyer that has Big Joe as a personal friend!

Since we already brought up the subject of ” America’s Pastime ….”

We really hit a home run when Larry Chapman came into the last County Commission meeting cussing and spitting and according to witnesses made the new Commission Asst Connie Osentoski almost pee her pants from the sudden and threatening nature of Larry Chapman, lets take a look at the GFP article that made Larry lose it in a public meeting…

Ethical Treatment for Gilmer County?  Will It Ever Happen?

Tuesday, April 05, 2011 Gilmer Free Press

Remember when the Gilmer County Commission, Larry Chapman President, approved the purchase by Extension Agent Shirey of a series of books written by Dr. Love, Sex Therapist to teach a class at the college using such titles as “HOT MONOGAMY-Making your marriage sizzle”? (While being paid with county taxpayers’ dollars).  How long was that true fact denied?  Remember they used levy funds and the citizens were so irate the commission pulled the money out of their own pockets to pour oil on troubled waters and make it go away?

Well, that was all Larry Chapman…
Remember when the commission almost gave away the medical center on mineral road, revealed in a report in the Gilmer Free Press?

Well, that was all Larry Chapman…
Remember when the bond issue for the college dorms was passed by the Gilmer County Commission, with Larry Chapman President, when there was little or no public input sought?

Well, that was all Larry Chapman…
We remember it well, they all left the one meeting they had on the issue to go down the street to get legal advice from Butcher and Butcher (Timothy B Butcher, President of GSC Housing Corp and R Terry Butcher, Board of Governors at GSC) as to whether or not to sign it and the Commission signed the application that day?

Well, that was all Larry Chapman…
Remember the issues involving the Gilmer County Recreation Center and the Golf Course?

Well, that was all Larry Chapman…
Remember a series of no-bid contracts?

Well, that was all Larry Chapman…
Remember the Gilmer County Commission with Chapman in the lead denying that any election complaint had ever been filed or that the County Clerk was being sued in Federal Court the entire time a Federal Election was in progress?
…and all that denial turned out to be a new river in Glenville or something for it all turned out to be a lie!

Well, that was all Larry Chapman!
Remember that the Gilmer County Economic/Industrial Development Association (GCEDA) has been appointed by the Commission as the authority for economic development in Gilmer County and that Larry Chapman served on that organizations’ board as President/Vice President, or one officer or another over the years while in the elected office of Gilmer County Commissioner?

Well, that was all Larry Chapman!
Well what is it that is all Larry Chapman now?

Now Larry Chapman, President of the GCEDA who worked with fellow Board Officers and Members to establish a Search Committee, creates a job description, places advertisements and seeks applications for the position of Part-time Coordinator with Health Benefits for that job-entity created with the potential for fulltime.


That job is all Larry Chapman!!
Where is the service to others?

All we have ever seen is service to Larry Chapman from Larry Chapman by Larry Chapman for Larry Chapman!

This man actually has to excuse himself from the executive session and the vote because HE WAS STILL THE PRESIDENT OF the Gilmer County EDA!


Because that job is all Larry Chapman!
It has been suggested that the Board of Directors of the GCEDA needs to familiarize themselves with Sarbanes-Oxley legislation and the IRS Code for 501c-6 non-profit organizations.  They prohibit any part of the net earnings being used to benefit individuals of that Board or its Directors other than “reasonable” compensation for actual expenses incurred.  Also, providing accurate information as to possible conflicts of interest on the form 990 is imperative AND THE LAW.

Oh, don’t tell me, because that job is Larry Chapman too? Is Larry Chapman the law? Could Larry Chapman have solved issues that have caused the local community embarrassment like spending thousands of dollars of state and county money to fight a fabricated case all the way to the Supreme Court involving old used farm equipment, just like that sits on every farm in the state of West Virginia, and then pay people to lie saying it was brand new?

Oh, that Larry Chapman!
That job, the biggest SNOW JOB in circuit court history is all Larry Chapman too?

Yep! That was all Larry Chapman!
Since the board seems to be all about Larry Chapman they might also want to guard the status they have enjoyed under the Federal Volunteer Protection Act.  Can this long time business owner, charter member and multiple times President just forget the affiliation?

Will Western Auto be left out with no representation?  Leaders of Gilmer County…  can you do anything without being underhanded?


That job is all Larry Chapman!
Gilmer County deserves better than this and we will never forget the day that Glenville, West Virginia in Gilmer County was all about Larry Chapman!!
Mr. Chapman, if we are wrong and you have not broken the law in this matter, please explain.  Your silence can only be considered confirmation.  If you cannot explain, perhaps the IRS can!

GFP: Attempts to contact Mr. Chapman was unsuccessful. However, The Gilmer Free Press Platform is open to Mr. Chapman and GCEDA officials for the explanations.


The comments that followed that article, some posted somewhere on this site upset Larry Chapman so much that soon there was another job for Larry Chapman by Larry Chapman and Larry Chapman busted in on the last Crooked County Commission meeting and you find the entire story about that eventful meeting below:

Bullying GFP in Public Meeting and Attack on Free Speech

The Gilmer Free Press (GFP) was bullied on Tuesday April 05, 2011 at the Gilmer County Commission Meeting.

After the meeting was called to order, Mr. Larry Chapman, the out-voted previous Gilmer County Commission President, entered the room, disregarding the rules of order, put his name on the sign-up sheet below others, took his jacket off,  threw it on the chair, and publically verbally attacked the GFP reporter.

Chapman demanded the Commissioners create a resolution forcing GFP to submit names of everyone who had responded to the article about the unusual method by which he created and hired himself for a part time position for Gilmer County Economic Development Association.

Stunned and speechless the commissioners listened while Chapman threatened GFP to provide the names and accused GFP of Slander!

The Gilmer Free Press Reporter told Chapman his complaint had nothing to do with the commission meeting and business!

Connie looking relieved after all the action at the last County Commission meeting! I see Connie has some new best friends in Glenville, but I hear they are a whore, a (explicative for homo sexual-censored) and a pedophile. She recently stated when asked about Larry Chapman and his out burst, she said she almost peed herself, and then it was reported by a bystander that, “Chapman came in sputtering and spitting like a boiling teapot” Took off his jacket and threw it down on a chair! And then, demanded to know who was sending that stuff in about him and his Hottsy Tottsy Girlfriend!”

Chapman told the Commissioners he did not like GFP allowing Anonymous comments, and then accused the Gilmer Free Press of doing something wrong. GFP responded to Chapman, he needed to look further than Gilmer County and see the practice is common everywhere and not new to GFP. Reporter added “it seems what IS common in Gilmer County, is the attempts to control the media and free speech by a few.”

Chapman again demanded the names of anonymous postings to GFP, but again his request was denied on the grounds that the purpose for anonymous postings was to protect the authors of the response from threats and retaliation.  GFP told Chapman his action was one of the reasons the citizens of Gilmer County deserved protection.

GFP defends, as always, the author’s right to anonymity (See the site Policy).

GFP informed Chapman that the author of the article had invited his response, but he chose not to reply and take this action instead.

Multiple times Chapman was reminded of his right by GFP to set the record straight once and for all by submitting a response to the article.

After multiple requests by the Gilmer Free Press, the comment below is the response from Mr. Chapman regarding the Letter to Editor and the comments.

Finally, the Gilmer Free Press would like to apologize to the Commissioners and those present on behalf of Mr. Chapman for interrupting the meeting with his bullying action out of order, and out of place!

**** Chapman’s reply is published on the Gilmer Free Press-edited out  for the Secret Seven by Editor Edison for the purposes of this publication on RGW ****

If a common person from the community would have pulled the same stunt as Chapman at the commission meeting, they would have been arrested. Chapman makes threats of all kinds and it is OK! The  Bitcher of the Butchers’ Bullys people with threats of law action and with taking everything everyone owns through the courts if not stealing it outright. The Sheriff will threaten to arrest you, if you expose any illegalities that he has decided he is going to be the judge and jury for…

And so it goes …

…just another day in Crooked County, West Virginia!
