At a ground breaking ceremony on, 12 July just last Tuesday, at Glenville State College’s future Pioneer Center, GSC President, Peter Barr, spoke to the crowd about GSC’s future being so bright they had to wear shades!
Several honored guests were on hand to turn soil, including major benefactors Ike and Sue Morris. Absent were politicians that did not want to be associated with all the bad press coming out of Gilmer County …and for good reason!
Speaking before the crowd….
While most people thought he was all about sports, he was most excited for the health care center, Ike Morris stated to the crowd.
“While it wasn’t an actual hospital, it was the next-best thing, ” and IKE thought it would help attract people to our area. At his age, he is interested in quality health care.
He said that Pete had promised him that he would never ask for any more money. (Dr. Peter Barr was shaking his head in disagreement to this comment) … And that, “Regardless of what people might read in the online publications, the Morris family would never do anything to hurt Gilmer County!”
Ike, you meant to say you won’t do anything to hurt Glenville State College, that is not the same as Gilmer. There are at least 6,000 people in this county that do not see a dime from those pretty buildings built for GSC. It may make you feel good, it may be the best thing you ever did but those 150 jobs at WACO and Flying W won’t pay the heat bill or put food on the table for the majority of Gilmer County citizens. The college doesn’t pay a nickel in taxes and does everything it can to keep the high paying jobs for the users and abusers of this county. No services for the common people. No doctors, hospitals miles away traveling poorly maintained secondary roads at best to the interstate, bought and paid for lawyers and way too many Chiefs are what we see.
Mega millions are spent on the hill and nothing trickles down but a coffee shop and an immature kid for a mayor that your people put in. We don’t even have a book store anymore. The grocery stores selection has become a joke, the hardware stores think they are selling the last two by four in the state. Dollar store or thrift shop clothes and used furniture should be good enough for Gilmer County taxpayers. That prison and the jail training shop have brought us nothing. They don’t pay taxes either. Any income from those sources goes straight to the college and the college is anything but straight.
Take a look at the GSC Foundation Inc. otherwise known as the Alumni Foundation. Dennis Pounds Director went from a little over $37,000 salary reported 2008 to over $72,000 reported 2009 with the full support of President Timothy Butcher. Now that’s one heck of a raise for trying to give away the County Commissions Medical Center! He’s supposed to be looking out for the donations of the alumni yet in 2008 the ‘Foundation’ (or Alumni Association) advanced $23,898 TO PETER BARR to fix his house payable at $5,000 per year at 6% interest. In 2007 they borrowed $38,085 from Calhoun Bank to buy a car with 60 monthly payments. Is this appropriate use of alumni life insurance policies? I thought Barr lived in the President’s home on campus or was this money his “Investment” in Rivers View. How much is he making these days? Every time you turn around the Board of Governors goes into executive session to give him a raise.
What about that $1,728,179 in deferred outflows from hedging derivative instruments reported in the colleges 2010 audit report? What’s up with that? Are they regulated derivative instruments or investment and unregulated and recognized even if their fair value is negative. One million seven, really and that’s the only description given.
If P.T. Barnum were alive today he would be a hedge-fund manager. Who needs suckers to go to the circus when you can collect 1% or 2% of their money per year and 20% or 30% of their winnings from the comfort of your office ? No profits? No problem. Close up shop, reopen under another name, and big institutional investors and wealthy individuals will still throw money at you. Is this what is happening with the GSC Foundation, Rivers View debt or the Morris Foundation?
HEY IKE ….Dude, did you bring Marc Monteleone in to show your people how the big boys do it or is that what was so special about Barr, Weldon’s and Porter?
No wonder the auditors made comments like… We have applied certain limited procedures to the required supplementary information, which consisted of inquiries of management regarding the methods of preparing the information Based on our discussions with and observations of management during the audit process, it appeared that management was not fully aware of recent Governmental Accounting Standards that directly and materially impacted the current year’s financial statement presentation…In other words, they took GSCs word for it. I’m not so sure that’s such a good idea. What do they have to hide and where is the Morris Foundation and the non-affiliated GSC Foundation Inc. in this mix?
Only know one thing for sure “IKE”, you won’t hurt Glenville State College but you don’t give a damn about Gilmer County common folk now that your pockets are full.
Municipal bonds are bonds that are issued by state and local governments. Make no mistake, the only thing the college did was borrow money through the Municipal Bond Commission then bank refinance to lower the interest which still about doubles the cost.
“There are no investors other than the hillbilly tax payers of Gilmer County,” Pete Barr likes to laugh about and likes to laugh about the State of West Virginia!
Are we that fucking funny to you Peter Barr author of the Barr Code?
Why hasn’t GSC used any of their surplus cash instead of plunging so deep into debt?
Because most of that cash held by those non-affiliated Foundations with set-up donations from people who couldn’t come up with a quarter million dollars unless they sold their assets and were designed to draw outside funding. There’s hedge accounting being done for sure. The Glenville State College Foundation, Inc.’s financial statements were audited by other auditors and included as supplemental information. Why hasn’t that audit been made public?
Because GSC doesn’t own the money and the public is owed no explanation!
What are the fund raisers and donations for? Most of the scholarship money comes from the state. $3,281,699 in PELL Grants were received and distributed by the college for student financial aid in 2010 and made up 12.99% of the College’s total revenues.
What about the $1,486,983 bank loan to renovate the gifted building for the Morris Criminal Justice Training Center?
What about the $635,000 bank loan to buy the Conrad Motel? Forget the money Barr borrowed.
If GSC had to operate on their actual income it would be unquestionably in the red. Is it responsible to keep raising the debts for Glenville State College? The only cash held that amounts to anything belongs to non-affiliated foundations. Someone up there needs to learn a little about pay as you go.
Borrowing may be necessary at times but not all the time. Rome was not built in a day and it did not fall in a day but nonetheless the great empire fell. Maybe the state will take it over too if they don’t close it should they drop the ball. Anyone think there is a football scholarship big enough to save it?
Not-for-profit organizations can and do commit frauds and fraudulent financial reporting is most often committed by management. Failing to disclose significant related party transactions or mis-classifying restricted donations to mislead donors or watchdogs are not good things to do. I hope GSC really has all their ducks in a legal row.
You won’t be around to buy them out of trouble forever “IKE!”
And so it goes….
Although unable to attend the ceremony, United States Senator Joe Manchin sent a note that expressed his regards. Upon completion of the Pioneer Center we will be, “Improving educational opportunities so our students, communities, and businesses can thrive,“ said Manchin.
Now MANCHIN’S advisers were smart they said don’t show up and get your photo in that group for it could be used against you politically in the future, and that is so true, and good advice especially given all the misconduct uncovered lately. Manchin is partly to blame for the declining condition in Gilmer County.
Also the PIONEER BOND ISSUE is starting to look pretty dog gone shady … Shady as a Butcher Bitch!!
Interesting, that we did notice the absence of the Butchers included in the GROUND BREAKING photo, and that might have been more by design, than by choice. But, there was Greg Smith sperm donor to Shelly Morris DeMarino!
Greg Smith an official Crooked County Crook is our local surveyor who amazingly as a divorced drunk found his way into some of the more porous of the Morris clan!!
“IKE” running Gilmer County elections with the use of Sandy Pettit at WACO OIL and ASS
… and then, putting his buddies in power to loot the system is not helping Gilmer County! It’s not helping any common citizens one bit.
So IKE’S statement at the ground breaking is some real bullshit.
If there was NO WACO OIL and Ike closed it down, then just an every day Gilmer person could apply and get hired at local jobs on what they know instead of, “Who they know!”
The same jobs would still be at the college. Not a damn thing would change except maybe all those jobs wouldn’t go to his patsy buddies and their kids!
If I L “IKE” Morris hadn’t bought all of those leases from people who didn’t even know what a lease was for such little money when they needed it so much back in the day, he wouldn’t be so despised by the general population and have to buy friends.
Now IKE and with your bullshit company Waco we have a whole new set of NEW REASONS to despise you and your little mafia crew, along with son Doug Morris with all his minions and dope dealer friends, which include his drug operations that are allowed to run freely with full endorsement of the local Sheriff Mickey Metz!
We don’t really see you doing much for Gilmer County at all!
“So keep your lying ass bullshit to yourself, for you ain’t seen nothing yet out of the Central West Virginia SS!”
“We have only begun to fight!”
…for TRUTH, JUSTICE, and the American Dream which has only become an American NIGHTMARE in Gilmer County West Virginia, unless of course you are a full fledged member of the POWER ELITE!

17 JULY SUNDAY SPECIAL EDITION!!
YOU DON’T KNOW
April 13, 2011 GSC Board of Governors agenda:
Renewal of Operating Lease Between GSC Housing Corporation and Glenville State College for the Refinance of Pioneer Village Revenue Bonds. (Note, they added the new dorm bonds in this mix to combine the debt).
Seems like another Butcher conflict of interest since the college has to pay a lease to keep the payroll running for the Housing Corporation!
A BRIEF WALK DOWN MEMORY LANE:
THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS COINCIDENCE WHEN IT COMES TO DECEPTION IN GILMER COUNTY
Oddly enough, Jack D. Jones of Pipestem, WV, owner of New Horizon Home Sales Inc and New Horizon Auto Sales in WV was very familiar with illegal business schemes for a quick profit and had full knowing of Gilmer County influences before he bought into the River’s View development project.
Over the years he was Officer and Registered Agent along with Sue Ellen Jones for at least eight separate ventures from his home in West Palm Beach, Florida which included:
Hanley Builders, Inc Mortgage Masters Inc
Gold Coast Investments Bahama Enterprises Limited Inc
Gold Coast Auto Sales Center Inc. Perma-Nails Inc
American Cellular Sales & Service Inc
Professional Assessment Support Sys Inc.
All of the above are now dissolved for voluntary or involuntary cause prior to his West Virginia Corporations created in 2005. Both of those are now defunct.
JACK JONES neighbor about 2 and a half hours away at the same time was IL Morris in Naples!! 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? How about a good lawyer with roots in gas & oil?
“Hey Marc Monteleone, are you affiliated with Bowles & Rice? Aren’t you a partner?
Don’t you run the GLENVILLE STATE COLLEGE FOUNDATION?
Still getting your paycheck as a partner with Bowles & Rice? What does the job of Operations Manager for WACO pay? Just askin’…
I mean, I’m just sayin man…. Don’t you think we know you are as Crooked as fuck?
Marc Monteleone, aren’t you known as the COUNT of Crooked County?
Well you are NO ACCOUNT to us …
In fact dude, you are just another CROOK from CROOKED COUNTY that lives down by the Crooked River, as far as we are concerned!!
But business must carry on for GSC so here is another transaction to think about!
November 18, 2009 GSC BOG
Presentation by Minnie Hamilton Health Systems
Ms. Barbara Lay, Chief Executive Officer at Minnie Hamilton Health Systems (MHHS), gave a presentation to the Board regarding GSC and MHHS collaboration in building a new 24/7 medical facility in Gilmer County. She provided a history of Minnie Hamilton Health System’s progressive facility.
Ms. Lay (TIGHT FRIEND TO THE DOG FACED WOMAN RETA KIGHT) indicated that a grant has been submitted in an effort to obtain funding to apply toward the proposed new 24/7 medical facility in partnering with Glenville State College…
When I hear the word “Grant” in the same sentence as Glenville State College, then I know we are all headed for another swindle somewhere!
Ya know … there is a Morris family tradition to uphold!!
I’m just sayin….
