I have to begin by telling you every word of this story is true. I also have to tell you that when I mention William C Martin who soon became the prosecutor in Braxton County after this event took place, that I mention Bill with great fondness, for William C Martin was one of the finest human beings ever born in the state of West Virginia, and he became a friend of mine, a friend I value to this day god rest his soul. William C Martin was one of the best attorneys Gilmer County ever had.

I also have to mention that I was the guy gathering all the documents for the investigation into wrong doing of the AJ Woofter estate. The Butcher law firm handled that estate for many many years.  It was just a few weeks after the fact of me delivering original documents, some of which could prove wrongdoing to Bills office, just to lose these documents forever when the office of William C Martin mysteriously burned down about three weeks later.

I have great suspicions about that event, and further more, Bill’s career was never the same after his office burned down for other valuable documents he needed to prove other court cases were destroyed and led to some bad luck for Bill further down the road.  I have great suspicions about all of the facts pertaining to that situation. Therefore it is with great pleasure that I publish this true account of the night that I finally met in person the infamous Bitcher of the Butchers himself, Timothy B Butcher one half of the Butcher and Butcher law firm in Glenville, West Virginia, the county seat of Gilmer County commonly known as CROOKED COUNTY!!

GSC President Dr. Tracy L. Pellett standing over Board of Governor member of Glenville State College Timothy B Butcher the Bitcher of the Butcher and Butcher law firm – Also Tim’s ole lady smiling and having fun.

“It shall be the duty of every clerk for whose office a general index has been provided, to make all proper entries in each general index in his office within a reasonable time after making the recordation to which the index entry pertains.”

IN the continuing saga of a few select Power Elite from Gilmer County that insist they are above the law it is important that we review the facts that have been presented so that as citizens we can ban together and file federal criminal complaints for those that have not only broken the law in a blatant way, but those in Gilmer County and the City of Glenville that are under the belief  that they are above the law.

Where in the above statement from West Virginia code does it say that the Clerk, Jean Butcher should give Timothy B Butcher a copy of the indices?

My research on the subject tells me this is against the law and a felony since it is unauthorized privileged information and in any other county the police would have come to Butchers home in the middle of the night and confiscated all the data and made an arrest and the bail would be high. This was all done to hide a bank loan from another bank so a partnership made up of the local elite could make some money on a local housing project.

I spoke with my own federal attorney about this yesterday, and since he has had personal business with the complained about parties and they lied to his face about important legal matters; I believe he is considering my suggestion of….

“Do we have enough to finally go after ALL of these people?”

But, how can you do that when history has shown these few select Power Elite that have included many members of the 14th district circuit court and several of their

WV BAR cronies (who play ball with all of their requests whether or not it is a legal request or not) truly are above the law!

 You take a complaint to the Sheriff and he complains with, “Well Gerry Hough is the head law man here in these parts!”

I never did quite get that one…. What the heck does that mean anyway?

Does the Sheriff think we are all stupid and that it is only the Power Elite that really need to know anything or file complaints or do whatever it is they do to ruin lives and destroy people’s homes, finances and reputations?

Well, I hate to break the bad news to y’all but they all do think we are stupid and I can relate a personal experience that seems to indicate I am correct.

So here goes, Once upon a time…

“I asked a certain unnamed prison guard to take me around town so that I could meet some of the elite that I had only read about in the newspapers — And since I was a pure bred West Virginian on both sides going back to the early 1800’s and I was just out from California, and had a lot of family in the area,  I thought maybe dude could show me around and we could party a bit with some of HIS friends, the people that really made the town run, according to dude…”

Well, although the man was way past the legal limit himself, I took a ride that was only maybe a few hundred yards, but it was the scariest few hundred yards I have ever traveled since it was a pedal to the metal in a truck with a big ole motor and I was hanging on for dear life!

After a harrowing 90 seconds of burning rubber and sliding sideways I found myself paying a small door fee at a bar called the Main Event and the host was Leslie Campbell that night. She seemed liked a rather pleasant lady and made darn sure that I got a drink right away.  My new found friend who had some skills as a driver (since we made it there alive) showed me into the back room where I found myself pleased to be sitting with Timothy B Butcher and a new associate of Butchers, who just went through some ritual or initiation of being brought into some exclusive Power Elite club.

I won’t mention the name of that particular person, but he was the only one in the very private setting of the back room that I couldn’t previously identify.

I was thinking to myself, be careful what you wish for you just might get it. I hit the mother lode I was at an exclusive private Power Elite party on a Wednesday night.

HOT ROD Prison Guard Bar Tender had to drop off the nights receipts in CASH to the OWNER of the PUB in Glenville before he could take me to meet his “POWER ELITE” friends at the MAIN EVENT a bar in Glenville later RAIDED by the ATF for selling alcohol to minors and for other infractions.

Who could want more? I smiled at my new found friend because he delivered on his promise, so I thought I should at least buy him a beer, which I did — and then, he promptly disappeared and left me there, which was cool, because that is exactly what I wanted. Now did I deceive the folks in the back room in the matter that this person was a friend of mine and it was OK I was there, because I was with him? Yes I did — and you all will have to forgive me, but it is what I do best.

Working my way into top tiers of the music business in Southern California, I used this tactic a time or two to get to the big shots so I could pitch the record I was promoting or give them a reason why they should hire me as their new rep, since I had a lot of experience and my numbers in a major market were so high.  I have to admit it all worked out for me a couple of times. So I had some tried and true methods to work with in this kind of hidden agenda sneaky stuff type of deal.

Luckily for me Butcher had absolutely no idea who I was, but I gave him my name and the name of several of my family members, names on both sides of my family and we discussed the old days back when you had to take the ferry across the river to get to Creston and general table talk that would be appropriate and normal for such an occasion. Butcher said, “Yeah, all those names ring some bells!”

I bet they did, and he still didn’t get it which was really working out for me. Then Mr. Timothy B Butcher explained to me that…

 He really wasn’t usually in a bar on Wednesday night, but that on that particular night he was celebrating because it was a real big night for his friend being brought into an exclusive Glenville Organization!

I was more than convinced it was the same organization that held close big name members like IKE Morris and a few other Power Elite. I was a little disappointed that the big guy Ike was not there that night since I have been dying to meet him. Heck, “Ike” was the Mick Jagger of Gilmer County! He was just as famous as a Rolling Stone in these here parts.

“I must have had a grin from ear to ear, since there I was on the inside with the Power Elite just yards away from the famous Crooked River. I was in hog heaven!”

Leslie came around and I could see she was trying to decide just who I was, but I seemed to be enjoying myself, or at least I could see that was what she thought. I felt like the cat that just ate the canary and anyone would be hard pressed to wipe the smile off one’s face, or risk being discovered for smiling in a silly way for no apparent reason might give my new Power Elite associates reason for concern.

I had to think of my military training with the Civil Air Patrol  from 1968 with a huge black Sgt screaming at me to wipe that smile off my face and he made me step on it, and then screamed while I did, then he made me kill it, and then he escorted me to a place where I was ordered to bury that smile. “And then it was hit the deck and give me 50!”

Thinking back to those days wiped that silly canary grin off my face, as I heard Tim Butcher say again, “You know I am not usually here on a Wednesday night!”

That was the third time I had heard that statement in a half hour and I thought it odd that such an obviously intelligent man would keep repeating the same sentence over and over. It was just then that I finally figured out that Timothy B was terribly worried about his image.

I looked at my watch and reminded myself it was never good to play “This” game too long, and that maybe my clandestine visit could be deemed a success since I was happy with some of the information I was able to gather that was freely given.

So, I made sure everyone was tipped out, bills were paid and excused myself, and in a very polite manner thanked each one at the table and walked around and mentioned them all by their first names. Timothy B was somehow impressed by this and said,

“How did you remember all of our names?”  Hmmm…. should I tell him the truth or just act stupid. I chose the latter, all the while a movie clip was running in my mind that featured Brad Pitt in the movie True Romance, where his line is, “Don’t condescend me (censored , censored) or I’ll (censored) … I especially remember the movie “True Romance for the sound byte that featured DJ David Perry saying,

“It’s 67 degrees at  622 in Los Angeles and this is David Perry on K B L U”

That movie always made an impression on me since I knew the REAL David Perry and even dated his girlfriend (whoops) and had done TWO stints at radio station…

 K B L U!  It was the station I pulled the big numbers at that still stand.

At that point in the evening, with that comment from Tim Butcher – who was extremely surprised that I did remember everyone’s names of the complete strangers that I had met that night- I have to say I truly did feel insulted about the comment and the tone of which it was used.

I never did like Tim Butcher after that, but it didn’t stop me from having drinks with his wife at that very same bar while being on a similar mission months later.

THE MAIN EVENT got BUSTED by the ATF shortly after the events that took place mentioned in this article — And TIM BUTCHER SCREAMED, “I AM the law around here!”  …that was heard as his son who now has been appointed Gilmer County Circuit Court Clerk was arrested back then by the ATF, for being drunk and disorderly. The Main Event was closed after charges were brought accusing them of selling to underage college students at Glenville State College.

Andrew Butcher APPOINTED to the position of Circuit Clerk – JUDGE ALSOP looking on who recently endorsed the Willard Cottrill LAND FRAUD SCHEME — WHO BETTER to swear in the little boy Butcher Tims son than Judge Facemire famous for the TRAVESTY of JUSTICE case.

But, please let’s not forget about the good honest people in Glenville like Bob Minigh and his son the democrat who ran for County Clerk. Bob is not only a man I trust, but a man I really like a lot.

Louella Stalnaker who was a previous County Clerk before BM Beverly Marks is also a very honest person and my mother’s cousin. Louella would have never ever had any part of anything like we have seen in the years since. She did her job all the way! And to my knowledge there was nothing said that even came close to a recent quote by Beverly Marks who was often heard saying,

“…It was too much work for ‘her girls’.”

In fact that was the excuse Beverly used for the latest well published debacle!

It was too much work for Beverly’s girls to do the proper entry into the public records!  What?

In fact, it was disclosed to this reporter that, “That was what was said too many times to count   …about any matter that required detailed analysis!”

So a crime was committed because of the Gilmer County Syndrome of TOO MANY DEGREE’S and NOT ENOUGH EDUCATION!!

I’ve seen that a time or two!

Now for the very best patt of this report!

I met Bill Martin at about 830am early the next morning for some business at the courthouse and we walked into the back room where all the lawyers hang out and it led to the back stairs where Bill wanted to have a smoke and also talk to me in private in a place that would be more difficult to be overheard.

We ran smack dab into Tim Butcher and I lit up!

William C Martin, a great attorney and a wonderful person. Bill was the Braxton County Prosecutor for a term

“Tim!!” I loudly proclaimed, “How the heck are you doing, boy did we ever tie one on last night, and Tim, you, you, Tim, You!”  …and then I looked at Bill Martin who knows me rather well and he had a pasted on grin from ear to ear because Bill is a sharp cookie and KNEW where I was going with this!

“Tim, you character, glad to see you made it home OK and you are at work this morning!”

Then I turned to Bill and said, “Tim and I got DRUNK last night, and I mean we really tied one on!”

 Butcher was changing colors on me, and that revved up my motor just like my favorite German Shepherd when someone was actually going to be stupid enough to run after the dog took the attack stance and was waiting for the command to attack.

I went on and on over Butchers denial of “Lying in the gutter out in front of the bar at 1am”

I just acted glad to see him like a long lost army buddy that you really did get drunk with.

The only reason I stopped after about two minutes of continuous motions and mentions of how darn glad I was to see Tim Butcher and how glad I was to see that he was OK after being half passed out in front of the bar… was that Bill Martin was nudging me towards the back door while chuckling and laughing, and I was backing up continuing my Hollywood acting debut that included 100% false information on the state of Tim Butcher that Wednesday night.

The truth of the matter was Tim Butcher was not the least bit drunk and conducted himself with poise and grace, although I did see him drink three beers, he seemed polished — and his rhetoric was all about letting everyone know that HE was the KING in Leslie Campbell’s bar and there was no mistaking that! In fact, Tim Butcher was the KING of all Gilmer County that night, because Tim knew the governor on a first name basis and everybody else in the state that mattered.

As I stood out the back of the upstairs courthouse looking into the back parking lot,  I heard something like a little motor running. “What is that?” I thought, but I determined that strange sound was Bill trying to not laugh but still was – but – slightly under his breath. The harder he tried not to laugh, the more that funny sound kept coming out. In fact, Bill kind of got stuck in that mode for a moment or two.

After a while, Bill seemed to get a grip on himself, and then started up again with the laughing, although he was making an effort to control it.

I finally turned to Bill, and asked, “Was it really that funny?!”

He looked at me, and then tried to get it out which he finally did, and said, “Yes”!  

 …And then I just lost it and laughed and laughed until I was wiping tears from my eyes!

I will never forget that fun day with Bill Martin another decent human being. Bill’s office was burned down three weeks after that with all of the BOXES AND BOXES of documents that took me many weeks to gather involving the AJ WOOFTER ESTATE.

I had delivered some very important documents to Lisa, Bill’s secretary and they were moved into his very large back office with a full law library.

The Secretary of State has put the cabash on Norma Hurley giving us any more statements in regard to the voter fraud. She was told to shut up, but specifically do no talk to the press.

It is my opinion that certain state officials will try to cover up the voter fraud allegations and will convince Hurley to drop the matter or the investigation will be inconclusive. This type of cover up in the state of WV has become common.

I personally like Major Ingold of the Police Standard division, but even FOIA requests have not divulged the reason State Police officers accused of rape and other serious crimes are not held accountable for their actions other than a disciplinary action that usually cost the trooper his job, but NO CHARGES are brought even though evidence shows a crime was committed.

Victims of these types of crimes only have a civil action to alleviate their pain and suffering.

This sort of behavior by the governors own protective force is very third world country.

Somehow, Glenville, Gilmer County, and the state of West Virginia seem to think they are NOT part of the United States of America and if you have powerful friends in this state you really are above the law.

We have a long list above the law locally. I am sure they have already called Big Joe and let him know what was up. I expect nothing will change until we change it. We need all new leaders and my take on the matter is get rid of all of them and start over. Oh yeah, we may lose a few good ones, but if they are really good, then they can earn their stripes back with taking the correct actions that have the common interest of the community in mind.

Glenville and Gilmer County public officials never have the community in mind. They only have their own selfish agenda to fill. Why not? We are all stupid in their eyes.

Below find the state code in question in reference to the current civil law action against Marks.

Somehow a sale was made without disclosing the fact the property carried a lien.

I for one can not figure how the sellers were unaware of the lien. That particular defense is a hard pill to swallow and I for one believe they knew all along about the lien. Just use your common sense on that one.

There is more to report on these Community Concerns and we will keep you updated
