Category: Bad Cops and corrupt public officials in Gilmer County WV


GREAT MOMENTS IN HISTORY — PLEASE ENJOY THIS GILMER FREE PRESS ARTICLE THAT GOES INTO SOME DETAIL REGARDING THE AJ WOOFTER ESTATE AND OTHER GILMER COUNTY ISSUES DEALING WITH CORRUPTION. THIS ARTICLE IS BEING REPUBLISHED AFTER REQUESTS HAVE BEEN MADE TO SHOW A TREND OF WRONGDOING REGARDING ESTATES INVOLVING GILMER COUNTY AND SOME OF THE MAIN PLAYERS THAT ARE OFTEN REFERRED TO AS CROOKED COUNTY CROOKS.  THE AJ WOOFTER ESTATE WAS THE FIRST INSTANCE WHERE PROOF WAS SHOWN INVOLVING THE INFAMOUS CROOKS FROM CROOKED COUNTY IN WRONGDOING.

THE COTTRILL ESTATE DEBACLE IS STARTING TO UNRAVEL — TWO COURT DATES HAVE BEEN SET, ONE INVOLVING THE EXECUTOR OF THE COTTRILL ESTATE FILING A CIVIL ACTION AGAINST THE GILMER COUNTY COMMISSION. THE COMMISSION SEEMS TO BE ON A MISSION TO REVEAL THE WRONGDOING OF MICHAEL MURPHY THE EXECUTOR — AND FACTS MAY VERY WELL POINT TO A REASONABLE CONCLUSION THAT THERE WAS PLENTY OF MOTIVE FOR THE MURDER OF WILLARD COTTRILL — WHO DIED FROM AN OVERDOSE OF DRUGS — INCLUDING A DEADLY DOSE OF MORPHINE. HOWEVER THE LOCAL DOCTOR HILARY MILLER LIED ON THE DEATH CERTIFICATE REGARDING THE CAUSE OF DEATH, MOSTLY FOR THE REASON TO PROTECT HERSELF FROM THE CRIME THAT IT WAS DR MILLER THAT SUPPLIED THE DEADLY MORPHINE THAT KILLED WILLARD WITHOUT EVEN SEEING HER PATIENT TO SEE IF INDEED THAT DEADLY DRUG NEEDED TO BE ADMINISTERED.

This article is authored by the President of the Council of Concerned Citizens Dan Bingman whose family still has 155 acres of property in Gilmer County and a 365 acre farm in Wirt County

imageIn this first document there is clear evidence that the THREE WOOD COUNTY bank accounts totaling over $125,000 recognized in the first accounting with one cd account worth $14,000 dollars were all cashed out by the executrix Rosa Belle Gainer against the express wishes of Albert J Woofter.  As, soon as ALBERT J WOOFTER was dead with the unsigned Power of Attorney paper work on the night stand as they were taking his lifeless body away, Gainer liquidated all the accounts and put it into one bank account where R TERRY BUTCHER her employer had control of the day to day actions. The amount deposited was $73, 352.50.

SO, we have a paper trail that proves that $125,000 was cashed out of three accounts, and only $73,352.50 was deposited in the bank in Glenville where R Terry Butcher is on the board. Another conflict of interest.

image
Evidence shows that there were three accounts with an excess of $125K and GAINER put it all in one account that the “Benny” only got seven thousand from after Gainer and the B& B Law firm pilfered the estate.

There was no accounting from 1994 until 31 Dec 2006 against WV LAW.  The Butcher and Butcher law firm broke the law and a call was placed to office of VANCE GOLDEN a commissioner in Wood County as to WHY he allowed Timothy B Butcher and R Terry Butcher to break the law and steal money from the estate.

For five years, lawyer after lawyer sent letters to Gainer and Butcher requesting their client have an accounting entitled by law, but the B& B law firm would not take calls and did not respond.

While doing the final accounting Tim Butcher paid himself as much as $10,480 per day, and those documents will be provided in a further publication and some of it has been published in the past, so a Google search may turn up some evidence.

Butcher wanted to make sure that when the account was settled the law firm had already used up the money that was in the bank account which was a situation certainly against the wishes of Albert J Woofter.

Margaret Kreiner, an attorney in Ohio wrote letter after letter stating that they were not adhering to the wishes of the deceased according to the will.  But, the Butchers obviously had Judge FACEMIRE and a few other WV Judges in their pocket, so why should they worry. Kreiner for two years wrote to Gainer asking that Butcher be fired as per wishes of Ruth Woofter and the Guardian. All these letters were ignored by Rosa Belle.

The second document is only shown to establish that according to their own paper work at the Butcher and Butcher law firm, the fact is and was that Rosa Bell Gainer IS NOT A RELATIVE – THEREFORE SHOULD NOT HAVE RECEIVED A PENNY IN THE DISTRIBUTION OF FUNDS FROM THE MISSING 1/6th.

Beverly Marks, the Gilmer County Clerk, distributed money to people RUTH WOOFTER had not seen or heard from in over 30 years and many like JACK GAINER the son of Rosa Belle Gainer and Rosa Belle herself were not even related, but money was sent to them anyway.

The GILMER COUNTY SHERIFF METZ not only ignored our documented complaint, but threatened to have me arrested if I were to investigate, “Any more of his people”

When an entire town and county is involved in this kind of crime that was protected by the local state police and Governor Manchin, now a US Senator, really how does one proceed?  Should we follow their lead and take the law into our own hands?

YOU DECIDE!

As to Item 7 BENEFICIARIES (SEE INSTRUCTIONS PAGE 13

The listed “Benny’s is for the AJ WOOFTER ESTATE and HAD NOTHING to do with the missing 1/6 of surface property that is on the Calhoun/Gilmer County line West of Glenville on highway 5.

It was clearly established by their own paper work from the Butcher & Butcher law firm thatROSA BELLE GAINER now known as Gainer – Cunningham was NOT a relative yet it wasGAINER that received CASH for the missing 1/6th and NOT the immediate family, that had been supporting Ruth Woofter and giving her a home to live in, plus paying for medical care and all taxes.

JACK GAINER, Rosa Belle Gainers son also received cash from the sale of the missing 6th and if Rosa Belle is not a relative, then her son is not either.

THE Missing 6th was not controlled by the estate and the guardian for Ruth Woofter lives in OHIO, and so did RUTH WOOFTER and NO DISTRIBUTION of her funds should have been made from the state of WV. Gilmer County was only supposed to approve the sale so she could use the money for medical help.

Tim Butcher and Beverly Marks both committed a crime with a witness present that will testify, when they disobeyed a court order to sell the property for much needed medical care and PULLED THE TITLE from the land books.

Sheriff Metz never had any intention of doing the right thing, instead attempted to cover the matter up with threats.

WHO MADE UP THE LIST OF PEOPLE TO RECEIVE MONEY FROM THE MISSING 1/6th hidden and pulled from the land books? Beverly Marks? If so, she should be immediately arrested, and the Sheriff should be removed from office.

THIS IS A CRIME not only ignored by the SHERIFF as if, the matter did not exist but also ignored by the WVSTATE POLICE TOO because the final decision maker, the chief counsel from the State Police is from Glenville and directly tied to IKE MORRIS!

These documents are all evidence of a cover up and Gainer and the Butcher and Butcher law firm STOLE money from honest citizens from out of state and did it with the help of Beverly Marks the County Commission Clerk and the GILMER COUNTY COMMISSION ORDERED IS HEREBY ORDERED TO PAY THE MONEY or be held accountable for being accessories to a crime and civil action with penalties.

Timothy B Butcher had no legal right to interfere with that title, but it also was needed in a WV SUPREME COURT CASE and the result was the complaint NO 178- 2011 filed against Justice Jean Davis who certainly has no explanation as to why only 5/6 of the property in dispute was moved forward from circuit court against the rules of legal procedure.

By this proof alone the family that was supposed to receive funds feels they have enough evidence to have MARKS arrested, but when the matter was brought before the state police they refused to press charges, so the matter went before the counsel for the State Police, Virginia Lanham, and now we have discovered her father was a personal attorney for IKE MORRIS Clearly there is corruption in Gilmer County and the clearly the State Police have acted in an irrational and illegal matter.

In fact the state police tried to press charges federal charges against me for making the complaint.

“When LAW ENFORCEMENT becomes a political entity like the WV State Police then AMERICA can no longer be AMERICA and this seems to be the situation for the state of West Virginia!”

Bill Grottendiecks daughter is Virginia Lanham who was the chief counsel for the state police when I filed my complaint with Major Ingold.

Bill Grottendiecks was IKE MORRIS’ number one attorney for over 20 years.

Lanham was the one that decided if my complaint over the missing 1/6th was accepted.

Major Ingold and Lanham more or less ignored the evidence on the recommendation by Lanham, but the virtue of the letter he wrote in response, all of the facts are wrong so by that evidence alone, their execution of the action, would on the surface appear malicious and in bad faith. But, that’s how they do things when it pertains to Gilmer County West Virginia, the POSTER CHILD for West Virginia’s legal hell!

So the title opinion, and back taxes has not been accepted as a complaint or even acknowledged, officially, by ANY agency in West Virginia, and Ohio law enforcement, and everyone else thinks that is pretty weird, but now that I know LANHAM the chief counsel for the State Police is Bill Grottendiecks daughter, it all makes a lot of sense.

Unfortunately the real criminal in this situation is the lawyer from Glenville representing State Police and some Gilmer County public officials   — And of course the County Commission Clerk Beverly Marks.

 

imageMarks was written a letter in July asking her to comply on the sudden reappearance of the missing 1/6th:

July 12

Beverly,

I spoke with Judge Spicers office today regarding the 1/6th of surface property inDekalb owned by Audrey Ruth Woofter my aunt, a piece of property I paid taxes on myself, since my mother has broken her hip and didn’t work. Ruth never worked or held a job and had no income.
I explained to the judge’s office that I had a witness that was present when you called Tim Butcher and asked him what to do. The witness said, that Butcher told you to not do anything with the court order from Spicer.

I am talking to an officer of the court by cell phone as I am writing this to you. Spicer is an old family legal name around here and the judge is retiring at the end of the month. We asked him to take action before he leaves office

You ignored the judge’s court order and my aunt did not get the medical treatment she needed because you shelved the court order on order from Butcher who was city attorney and had nothing to do with this case.

Since you shelved the court order and took no action, my aunt could not get the medical treatment she needed for she needed the money from the sale and she died in Ohio.

The judge’s secretary asked me to file charges in WV and I laughed until I nearly cried, for we tried that and got no response from Metz which they actually did not believe. It was an uncomfortable moment, but I assured them it was true.

I will be back in touch with the judge’s office tomorrow and will be talking to the judge after he is fully briefed to ask him what sort of action should be taken. He was not happy you ignored the order and Audrey Ruth Woofter died on Xmas day.

Also, you took it upon yourself to distribute the funds from the sale after the death to heirs Ruth had not seen in over 30 years or so much as sent her a Xmas card. I reviewed the will and this was not the wishes of Albert J Woofter.

Further, matters were clearly stated in the will.

I explained to all concerned of your connection with Timothy B Butcher who pilfered the estate, and we have a serious issue with that. We have a witness that stated you always conferred with Butcher as, “What to do!?“

What you did was not legal, and we have evidence of you having committed similar acts in the past.

If for some reason any of these facts are incorrect, and/or you dispute the testimony of an eye witness, then I suggest you cooperate fully with authorities. You may want to speak with an attorney, at this time.

I have the list of heirs along with the title opinion that was also absent from the courthouse records when requested. We will ask you how you came by that list, and also why you did not go by the wishes of the Albert J Woofter will which specifically stated that all assets were to go to Ramona Bingman.

Rosa Belle Gainer was not a relative to Audrey Ruth Woofter, but yet we noticed she received money illegally from your transaction. So did her son.

How did she get on your list of heirs? Where did you get the list did you just make it up, who helped you with this alleged criminal action?

Ramona Bingman was the registered legal guardian, and had been for years. This was proven to Butcher ten times over, and it is matter of record here at the courthouse, and clearly it was established as fact today.

You decided to, “Make up your own rules” down there in Glenville, and really isn’t that how you always do it!
And this is a PUBLIC NOTICE TO BEVERLY MARKS PROVIDED BY AN AMERICAN FREE PRESS

Beverly Marks, YOU are to contact me immediately in regard to the MISSING 1/6th which you had no right to sell. You were given an order to sell that property while RUTH WOOFTER was alive and you hid the title instead which is criminal. While waiting for the money from the sale for medical care, RUTH DIED ON CHRISTMAS DAY, and as far as I am concerned you are implicated in a wrongful death and so is everyone that helped you who includes Tim Butcher and Sheriff Metz who attempted to cover up the matter and refused to investigate the allegations.

I spent 15 hours on the paperwork dating back to 1994 recently. I spoke at length with my attorney, who was hired for that purpose of reviewing all the documents, and then he attempted to speak with the Butcher&Butcher Law firm on our behalf, but rarely got any response at all. And then,  when he sent proof of the affidavit that proved who the legal guardian was Dianna L Butcher LIED and said they never received the document, but being of above average intelligence sent the document signed return receipt requested, signed and dated by Dianna L Butcher which proves that she lied to our attorney and got caught.

“But, that’s how you always do it in Gilmer County!”

You need to call your attorney for we are going to be filing criminal charges against you and or bringing civil action in US District Court for compensation and also for punitive damages, unless of course Gilmer County wants to settle this suit. But, we know how they are from years of experience, extremely dishonest just like you Beverly Marks.

It clearly states in earlier paper work that Rosa Belle Gainer Cunningham is not a relative, yet you gave her the money from the sale of the property!

You got a court order to sell the property in 2005—but you did not sell it! You pulled the title from the land books like a common thief and you did it on order of Tim Butcher who had nothing to do with that property. What you did is a crime Beverly Marks and you are going to pay for it with as much jail time as we can possibly get you in an honest court, which certainly could never be a Gilmer County Court.

R Bingman was the legal guardian, and all the papers are in order. But YOU BLOCKED the sale until after RUTH DIED when it was her money, but then you abused your position as clerk and gave the money for the property that was not yours to some friends of yours. I would love to discuss this matter with you ASAP – so call me, everyone has my number. I want to see you face to face about this concern as soon as it can be arranged.

Sincerely
Dan Bingman
(Signature on file)

RETURN RECEIPT REQUEST IS in reference to text below:

During the entire time the Butchers were in control of the AJ WOOFTER estate they pulled every dirty trick in the book and just sat back in their big leather chairs and weathered out the storm protected by Judge Facemire and the Elites, and kept saying they had no documentation that R Bingman was the legal guardian of RUTH WOOFTER and her primary care giver and her niece that supported her, and provided her with food clothing and shelter for as long as I can remember.

An attorney from Cleveland and licensed to practice in New York is also a federal attorney and could no longer take the stalling tactics of the Butchers, so for an hourly rate which was rather costly provided all the paper work AGAIN that the Butchers needed to prove who the legal guardian was.

image
This receipt is signed by Diana L Butcher, but then the estate was held up for almost an entire year after the date on the signed receipt because the Butcher and Butcher law firm said they never received the documents which everyone knew was a complete and total lie. The last day Butcher had control he took more than ten thousand dollars out of the cash account which was three thousand more than the actual beneficiary got and that is just plain a crime. Butcher took 38,000 dollars from the estate in FEE’s he never earned in the last 90 days.

Another attorney by the name of Roger Curry had to be hired at a cost of $10,000 dollars because Butcher refused to cooperate with the out of state attorney, as he did with the four previous attorneys hired.

Rosa Belle Gainer – Cunningham got more than the 3% allowed by law for being an executrix and in some states could have been jailed for being an employee of Butcher and Butcher while being the executrix also, and then just taking more than the 3% allowed. This is a clear conflict and we believe by proven documents that Gainer committed embezzlement and fraud along with Butcher and Butcher and they should be arrested.

All documents are on file at the office of Vance Golden or at my home office, if any person wants verification of facts, I will do all I can to see they get the documents for review.

image
Why are public officials in Glenville allowed to break the law?

Who believes that R Terry Butcher and Timothy Butcher should be placed under citizen’s arrest, and then immediately and escorted to jail for stealing money from an elderly mentally challenged person as Ruth Woofter.

Audrey Ruth Woofter was my aunt, and myself and my entire family loved her. I can remember her from the early days in WV since I was three years old. The actions in Gilmer County killed her as far as my family is concerned, but please review the facts and draw your own conclusion, and then let’s put these people in jail where they belong.

~~  by Daniel Bingman ~~

The first thing that brings a huge RED FLAG is the fact that Charles V Renner just allowed his secretary to make a transaction and a highly illegal one if I read this correctly.

That is not allowed.

For those from Wood County know Mr Renner never made it out of the hospital, and died right around the time of the document published in this article.

My Uncle was one of the Wood County Commissioners that signed off on the estate.

Anybody that is anybody from Glenville knows that the Butchers made their living by stealing from estates, and if heaven were to release some secrets, this sort of illegal procedure got by the right people time and time again in Gilmer County.

People in the know are aware that some of the money from this estate was supposedly donated to GSC, but it obviously was not theirs to donate.

I vote for immediate arrest,and I think it is time Sheriff Metz resigned. This is just on too many times he has been involved in criminal activity.

Comment by Gilmer County Schools Coalition member  on  12.20.2011

All estates B & B have been involved with should be identified and there should be a comprehensive investigation to determine if there was a history of estate pilfering. Also, this GFP posting should be reported to Rachael Cipoletti (rfcipoletti@wvodc.org ) at the Bar’s Office of Disciplinary Counsel(ODC)to observe how it deals with a complaint against lawyers. There probably would be a response that there is insufficient evidence, the statute of limitations has passed, misconduct did not rise to a level to merit discipline etc. Why have G. Hough and Metz failed to investigate the alleged crime? Does a citizen have to file charges before they are authorized to act or are they afraid to take on the Butcher’s? We need answers because this report relates to corruption in the County, and there is little wonder why citizens are afraid to take stands when there is evidence that the rich and powerful receive preferential treatment.

Comment by Ralph P. Ayles  on  12.20.2011

This article needs to be published in the Braxton paper.I have went through the same thing in Sutton court.Facemire should also be prosecuted if he did wrong in this.I had an attorney in Sutton that was dishonest,knew the other side ,went against me{my own attorney}because he did not want to go against other attorneys.This attorney has also practiced with Butchers.If you are honest in Braxton County court your in trouble.They go for the nasty,dishonest,thieves and liars.What a shame!!

Once all the research is complete using the documents from Mr. Armontrout, all the criminal activities by the Butcher & Butcher’s as well as Beverly Mark’s office will be revealed for the feds to see. Innocent people have had enough of this group of crooks. Their time is coming. cool mad

Comment by WatchDog  on  12.20.2011

To Ralph,

In reference to:his GFP posting should be reported to Rachael Cipoletti (rfcipoletti@wvodc.org ) at the Bar’s Office of Disciplinary Counsel(ODC)to observe how it deals with a complaint against lawyers…

Cipoletti proved herself to be as corrupt or more corrupt that the worst of the worst in Charleston by not accepting evidence against Gerald B Hough that proved criminal intent and no due diligence used. YOU are CORRECT she would have just made up an excuse and the best article written about such matters was written my our own PHD Carl Armour yesterday. It was right on point with the problems, please review that article.

Carl covered all the pertinent area’s that proves that attorneys in West Virginia are above the law and the stick together to make it all happen.

Comment by Gilmer County Schools Coalition member  on  12.20.2011

The Gilmer Free PressWe had Moody’s report about GSC’s lowered bond rating from its risky borrowing, exceeding $30,000,000, which was approved by the Gilmer County Commission. Next, we learned about GSC’s serious accreditation concerns from the iconic Wall Street Journal (WSJ).

The WSJ reported that about 30% of an entering GSC freshman class does not graduate. The newest alarm is from the prestigious National Council on Teacher Quality (NCTQ). At the beginning of the 21st century and decades before that time the College had one of the finest teacher education programs in America.

Sadly, that prized status ended. The NCTQ applied an evaluation process containing 20 criteria referred to as standards to rank teacher education programs including GSC’s. Mr. Charles McElwee, a distinguished Charleston attorney reported the rankings in the Gazette Mail.

To quote Mr. McAlwee, “six institutions [in WV]) fell in the bottom half of fully evaluated undergraduate or graduate elementary programs, too low to qualify for a ranking.” Unfortunately GSC’s teacher education program was among the six bottom place WV institutions.

What happened at GSC to degrade its teacher education program?

We hear mostly about the College’s expansive building program as if it alone is the answer to all challenges. However, there is no evidence to verify that the huge loan for building, enabled by the County Commission, helped to improve the College’s academic standing including its discredited teacher education program.

Ax grinders spew venom that GSC’s teacher education program’s problems originated approximately 20 years when another College President served.  An evaluation of facts provides convincing evidence that true causes for the troubled program link to the College’s more recent presidents and boards of governors.

Members of governing boards are determined locally and the Governor of WV approves the decisions automatically. Presidents are hired by sitting boards. How should current governing board members be graded for demonstrated personal knowledge of how a vibrant college should function? Have they comprehended the urgent need to plan for success and to hold administrators accountable, and have they understood the urgent necessity of redirecting GSC?

Assurances regularly emit from the hill that everything is just fine with enrollment and all its programs. Should anyone disagree a member of GSC’s attitude adjustment team dispatches to try to silence concerned dissenters. Regardless, GSC’s faithful well wishers consider the reputation of its teacher education program to be the bell weather of the College’s overall academic health and viability.

The future of GSC and Gilmer County is inseparable. With reference to the triage analogy in medicine we are near or past the “patient can’t be saved” condition.

Governor Tomblin and Dr. Paul H. Hill, the administrator of the WV Higher Education Policy Commission, should form a blue ribbon team of renowned experts to advise the State of options for rescuing the College’s teacher education program.  WV Legislators who oversee higher education functions must involve themselves too in efforts to solve the serious emergency.

If an option still exists, a comprehensive plan should be developed for restoring the teacher education program’s reputation. Those who remember GSC’s program as it once was want a fresh start at this critical period when the State has a teacher education crisis.

Why not re-position GSC to have the premier teacher education program in West Virginia?  That development would be a great asset as our State struggles hard to brighten the tarnished image of its K-12 education system.

GSC has the same failed mindset as the WVBOE.
Policies, programs, never ending experiments with the students.

Bells, whistles, baubles, glitz.  Unproductive and failing.

WVBOE believes that new, fancy, pretty buildings result in quality education.  Clearly GSC is stuck in the same rut.

By watcher  on  08.25.2015

It does not require geniuses to find one of the major reasons. Look at compositions of Boards of Governors.

Members of the same families have been represented since the BOG system started. The families control all other components of the College too.

Same families with strangle holds on the Court House, law enforcement, businesses to succeed and to fail, who gets jobs and who keeps them, who gets elected, what happens with our schools, who gets scholarship money, and everything else.

They like to portray appearances of watching out for us while the really watch out for themselves.

By Bob Gather  on  08.25.2015

A profession to be valued, certainly. But crucial shortages are widely reported to be in the areas of science, technology and special education.
There has been a downward spiral of the number seeking a Teaching degree nationwide for the past several years. Teach America recruitment is down.

Glenville State College should be valued as an asset for central WV, an area of this state historically ignored for infrastructure update by its Legislative body. Even more valued and protected during a troubled economy when even the largest colleges have seen decreased enrollment.

Can they afford to put all of their eggs in this basket? Can GSC afford expending all efforts and resources to be the education hero of West Virginia?

By Slippery Slope – Is It Practical?  on  08.25.2015

It seems to me that the emphasis at GSC is sports, not education. At least much more news coverage is given to sports than to academics.

By Skip Beyer  on  08.25.2015

We are already at rocky bottom of that slippery slope at GSC and other schools.

Teacher ed. is one of several programs of which WV has too many. Criminal justice is another. At last count there were 20+ CJ programs in WV’s colleges and universities.

Wanna thin them out? Have each one ranked in quality and demand that when a new student enrolls the list must be given out. Let the survival of the fittest function.

Something like that could be done for fields for which jobs are scarce to help cut the rate of college grads with huge college debts to pay off to have to work at fast food businesses to make a living.

When a new student enrolls in a program at an institution give out a fact sheet about chances for getting a job in that field and the pay prospects. That would cut down on getting degrees in poor opportunity fields.

If disclosure information is not required to be given out as a higher education version of truth in advertising, profs in the bottom fields will hold back because candidness would work against their personal interests in keeping their classes filled.

By Support The Winners  on  08.25.2015

GSC was once known far and wide for the quality of Teachers graduating.  Unfortunately with the current standings regarding the state of education in West Virginia how effective could such a program be?  It would take years to get a program off the ground and running, is there enough time?

Governor Tomblin is supporting the new State Superintendent of Schools agenda now. If the students sent to college aren’t ready then who will be trained as the high quality Teachers of tomorrow?

Begin at the beginning. There may not be a quick fix. It’s taken a lot of time and money to get where things are.

By AJ. Flack  on  08.25.2015

Sports does a lot to shore up the enrollment and the program has been very successful over the years. Team spirit is one thing GSC doesn’t lack.
That WACO center is a beautiful new facility and the Alumni and friend donate to keep the flag flying on the hill. What they want their money used for is up to the giver.

Online prisoner classes add to the count so there’s another contributor.

More community interaction would probably be a help. Thought they had a Teaching program but everything can always stand to grow.  How to get it done is the big problem. Do not see state revenues being the answer as the population statewide is on the down side. Didn’t the Governor have to cut all of the colleges in the states budget the last two or three years?

By Hang In There GSC  on  08.25.2015

Attention citizens of Gilmer County, lots of court news this week, but I am going to let Lawrence Jay Smith the man who defeated Gerald B Hough in a civil suit a while back report all that is in the news. Brian Kennedy from the Gilmer County Commission had his court date on August 11th at 1pm with a special prosecutor from Calhoun County and a magistrate from Braxton County present.  People from out of town and other states have a hard time believing how fucking corrupt Gilmer County West Virginia is, so lets present a great blast from the past by way of a history lesson, just to review who all the players are that are involved in the totalitarian society created by the Church of IKE and that hell hole of a college on the hill Glenville State College  rated just about dead last in academics for colleges in West Virginia. Today is Thursday August 13th and the Central West Virginia Council of Concerned Citizens has its annual retreat this time of the year and will be enjoying the great outdoors for the next 11 days. Please enjoy your history lesson and I can guarantee you some news about Gilmer County that will blow your mind when our HOLIDAY is over…. Its back to school week coming up Monday at GSC and how many freshman girls will be taken advantage of this year up at the fright house on the hill?

By Free Bird — Revenge of the Ghost Wolf Reporter for the Central West Virginia Secret Seven Coalition/Hurricane Rina McCoy – Crooked County Crooks Editor/Editor Edison – CalPatty Press Editor

“Integrity, Commitment and Truth, these are the things the Power Elite and the CHURCH of IKE can do without!”

The Central West Virginia Secret Seven Coalition has been making Integrity, Commitment and Truth, part of our sacred creed since 2006!

If you want to be a dedicated member of the Central West Virginia SS —  Integrity, Commitment and Truth — are the words and the concept you live by.

The SS is a service for others, who investigate the corrupt power elite on a full time basis. We have educated professionals working for us, and have for some time. The elite members have discovered some of them, and then, once recognized, that particular SS member or SS affiliate will immediately find themselves threatened, or served with a subpoena to come to court over some made up bullshit, especially concocted, and an original brew of corruption specially stirred and stewed by Gerald B Hough Prosecuting Attorney for Gilmer County will be brought forth like an Alchemist of EVIL!

Author of the BARR CODE, Peter Barr head honcho of GSC with Greg Smith who has recently put those Negro football players to work picking up trash alongside hwy five and of course in and around the new businesses he bought in Glenville too. Smith doesn’t seem to care that NOT ONE of the rapes of white women GSC students by black football players received a conviction in the famous Court of Crooked County down by the Crooked River!

I find it fascinating that Shelly Morris DeMarino daughter to IL Morris per SS sources was banging Greg Smith on the side last summer as reported by the Central West Virginia Secret Seven and now Shelly has GREG as the number one man in her life, and in fact there has been a rumor of them getting married, and then GREG will be a SON of IKE in the CHURCH of IKE and we will never be able to get rid of him then!

I would guess Greg Smith will be the next one Ike tries to get in office since Rick Frame was such a failure!  But, what the heck at least Rick got some good pussy out of the deal!! 

Greg Smith is our local surveyor who amazingly as a divorced drunk found his way to the Foundation Board, GSC Board of Governors and in Charleston on the Executive Committee!

A light bulb must have gone off in the head of Greg Smith, when he decided to get FREE LABOR to clean up the town! Greg got the GSC Football team to pick up trash, but yet, they are STILL FREE TO RAPE ALL THE WHITE BITCHES at the school!  Yeah, thanks Greg, APRIL was Sexual Assault Month, the idea of Kayla Smith who once told me the HUR HERALD was just the local gossip site and they published no real news there.

Allegations of the crime of rape of an honor student, “ Amanda” have turned up some results in which a pubic hair believed to be from Jordan Opie Watkins was found by the attending nurse along with a swab that we suspect was positive for semen, however the investigating SS has not yet spoken with the nurse personally. Date Rape drugs were present in the victim who flat lined on the way to the hospital due to being drugged and given a powerful mixed drink which rendered her with a 2.4 alcohol content, enough to kill the well built 20 year old girl.

Sexual Assault Proclamation: After a presentation April 19th to the Gilmer County Commission by Kayla Smith, the Commission signed a proclamation to call April Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

I wanted to gag myself with a spoon that day of the meeting, and felt the same way when Kayla announced to the Gilmer County Commission that APRIL was female sexual assault month with only about 11 days left in the month, not a very well planned out observation of an important issue.

It was truly a fucking joke to us in the SS, who have been years deep into the investigation of several rapes at GSC and Smith probably has NO IDEA or IDEAR as she would say, “She has no idear,” the seriousness of the situation, or the facts, or the actual numbers of women that have had their life ruined at Glenville State College!

Why not make SEPTEMBER Sexual Assault Awareness month, when an honor student “Amanda,” attending GSC on the promise scholarship, was raped like a bitch by OPIE along with all of his friends from the SOB fraternity on the GSC campus?

Why not make JUNE sexual assault awareness month KAYLA? For that was the month that GABE PHROPHET a GSC QUARTERBACK in the tradition of Wilkie Perez, forced his hard erect black penis into the mouth of that nice girl Mary Hudnall that worked at the GO  MART! He slapped her, beat her about the head and shoulders – forced his big black cock in her mouth – sometimes choking her and making her gag, and then slammed her down on his bed, after ripping off her clothes in a violent act that KAYLA SMITH from GSC has not one fucking clue or idea about!   In the Police Report, Hudnall gave testimony that she was, ” Afraid for her life!” She was afraid that Gabe Phrophet would beat her to death, if she didn’t do exactly as he said, and she was traumatized and injured!

Why not make SEPTEMBER Sexual Assault Awareness month, when an honor student “Amanda,” attending GSC on the promise scholarship, was raped like a bitch by some piece of shit named OPIE along with all of his friends for the SOB fraternity on the GSC campus?  Hey Kayla fuck you, nice try, but no black dick this time you elite ass kissing disgrace! What the fuck? You mightas well be a dude Kayla for all the good your bullshit “April Awareness” achieved, but maybe you do have a dick, we should get someone from the football team like Glenville State College quarterback Steffen Colon to check that out for us.

But, how could we mention Greg Smith and his new love Shelly Morris DeMarino, poor little rich girl, part time whore earlier  .. and all the good work Smith is doing with putting the Negro boys to work and all, without mentioning their personal candidate for Gilmer County Commission on the ballot for this next Tuesday … LARRY CHAPMAN!

ETHICAL TREATMENT FOR GILMER COUNTY? WILL IT EVER HAPPEN?

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 taxpayer dollars).

How long was that LIE by Chapman denied? The Central WV SS found out what was really up and reported on it, many years ago! 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…

This high ranking member of the Central WV SS and member of the “Ghost Wolf ” pack is kind of PISSED that he didn’t get to celebrate Sexual Assault Awareness month in April, since he didn’t find out about it until April 19th, and being a little bit tied up in training and all is disappointed that since it is already the 4th of MAY he hasn’t got a chance to PLAY with any Crooks from Crooked County that live down by the Crooked River, but there is always tomorrow, CINCO DE MAYO!!

Remember when the BOND ISSUE for the college dorms was passed by the Gilmer County Commission, when Larry Chapman was El Presidente, the President, and also when there was little or no public input sought?

No Transparency!

Well, that was all Larry Chapman…
I remember it well,  all the cool unfaithful scumbag elite self important public officials 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 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 the Federal Court Action in US District Court was in progress? The FREE PRESS finally published proof!
…And all that Denial turned out to be some kind a new river in Glenville or a something for it all turned out to be a lie! There was enough water blown up everyone’s ass to start a new river that is for sure!

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!

A photo of Circuit Clerk Karen Elkin who after 30 years of being under Lame Smith as Deputy Clerk has amassed more tall tales of cruelty and corruption than AMY RIDDLE can SHAKE the CHAPMAN STICK AT!  BM – Beverly Marks Crooked County Commission Clerk doing a little smiling in photo above about those 2010 elections for they went just right … well almost!

Further down the road a piece … 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.
Larry Chapman APPLIES FOR IT HIMSELF AND GETS THE JOB!
Because….
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 of Larry Chapman for Larry Chapman and his stick shaking girl friend AMY Riddle that he likes to diddle but does not mind leaving her in the road like some kind of beaten down dog, like he did recently during the benefit dinner for JESSE MARKS!

Yeah CHAPMAN is the Gilmer County Commissioner that gave away  the 911 service … and then looking to come back to get all the credit!

“Larry Chapman has been a running round with AMY Hey Diddle Diddle Riddle and going to everyone telling them how he’s changed, please forgive him while he leaves his girlfriend jogging on Sycamore Rd waiting for him while he Sucks Ass votes from with his I’ve Changed, I’m really not such an asshole anymore platform and “serves”  that Bullshit up with food at the benefit dinner for Jesse Marks!

This man has chapped lips from sucking so much ass he actually has to excuse himself from the executive session and the vote because HE WAS STILL THE PRESIDENT of the Gilmer County EDA!
WHY?
Because that job is all Larry Chapman!

Election Fraud in Crooked County, there is nothing like it! VOTE BUYING SEASON and the pleasure provided by the Church of IKE put a lot of people in power over the years that are service to self only, and here is a man that looks so much like Larry Chapman it could be Larry Chapman, and oh, is that AMY? AMY SKINNER has already got Brian Kennedy by the Balls and Amy Riddle she likes a little diddle diddle and it appears to be, “Hey Amy Riddle time for some diddle diddle and bring your friend AMY a long, so I don’t get the names wrong later crying out in ecstasy courtesy of the Church of Ike!”

Is Larry Chapman so power hungry he thinks he is 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!

“Integrity, Commitment and Truth!! … these are the things I can do without, say the Demi-God Politicians from the Church of Ike who the common folk don’t like! ELECTION FRAUD is how they do it down in Crooked County just ask former County Commission Clerk Beverly Marks, and the current clerk, JEAN BUTCHER — both charged with misdemeanors in the last Gilmer County election by Natalie Tennant the Secretary of State!

“With the primary election in Gilmer County being next Tuesday May 8th we can understand why a new candidate might be a little shaky about which way to go, but please explain, why do old trusted candidates go nuts and swing every which way when it comes election time?  For instance, our favorite old candidate Carol Wolfe!”

Sure we know Carol Wolfe  has had a little trouble on the home front in the past.  But we didn’t hold that against her.  She’s been a good judge.  Yet damn if she didn’t go to Easter dinner at S Moyers Pet IT’s moms house.

“I think I may be a little drunk leave me alone!” Please don’t touch me, I can’t do what you want me to do! “I told you NO!” ” …I can’t do this, I have a boyfriend!” No!! Mphhh… IF SHE REALLY DIDN’T WANT TO, SHE WOULD HAVE SAID SOMETHING – The New SOB rules to live by at Glenville State College!

Why?

Obviously Sandy Pettit and the Church of IKE brought Carol Wolfe
back in line!   … Or they would be the ones doing the smear campaign and there wouldn’t be a damn thing Wolfe could do about it with all her huffin and puffin! It’s  too bad  to see em bow, then break and give up every standard they swore to live by but you did, didn’t you Carol, wife of John George?

What drives the Circuit Clerk Karen Elkin crazy?

Everybody knows how much she absolutely hates Gerry Hough!

Elkin screams it loud enough every where she goes.  Not a soul in town won’t tell you that if they’re being honest. 

In violent times, you shouldn’t have to sell your soul
In black and white, they really ought to know
Those one track minds that took you for a working boy
Kiss them goodbye, you shouldn’t have to jump for joy! You shouldn’t have to ..
Shout, shout, let it all out, these are the things I can do without Come on, I’m talking to you, come on...
“Jumping for JOY takes on new meaning with the SOB’S from GSC where one sells their soul to join the Church of IKE!”

Speaking of Soul so where’s this black candidate out of Wood County Karen Elkin bragged about? When I checked the name, he was white. If the candidate is black or white, the citizens of Gilmer County really ought to know why hasn’t he come to town for a meet and greet even if he is supposed to file independent? 

What makes KAREN ELKIN say Berk Reed would make a good looking Sheriff, talk about Larry Gerwig like a dog, pant over Larry Chapman like a bitch in heat and then brag she has everybody in Cedarville in her pocket and she’ll control the vote there this year?

“What the heck did Chapman EVER do for Cedarville Karen Elkin? …Except keep you busy in a back room so the voters didn’t have to see you.  Hell, Larry Chapman couldn’t be bothered to try and give  Cedarville citizens a decent drink of water in over 16 years!”

An elderly from Cedarville was told about the summer of LOVE when the BUTCHER BITCHES BROKE BAD on the CalPatty Press and asked what she thought about all the drugs and sex at Gilmer County High School and the fact that, it was all JUST OK with Nasia Butcher… And that is what she said!

Why is Karen always against the one who’s done the job? Does it every time.  Talks about the old women in her club behind their back and smiles and pats to their face.  What’s she so afraid will come out ?   Wasn’t it bad enough that half the Democrat Women including Secretary Elkin voted republican in the last election to cut a deal to save her ass against Willard Marks?

Karen was running on her sister’s Sandy Petitt’s  job with WACO and using that to make threats is all she’s got.  Then she cusses, yells, stomps her feet, shakes her fist, smokes some more dope and yells loud and long all over that court house because she didn’t get the number of votes she told she would?  Tell us another lie OK?  That’s what you’re good for! And of course good for a feel up in the office under the old rule of LAME SMITH.

Even after her live in was busted with another woman for drugs in Webster County and flyers with pictures of him breaking home confinement went all over town Karen Elkin still got the job and the witch has the nerve to talk about how she teaches little kids in Sunday School while she cusses like a sailor and talks shit about anybody that won’t kiss her ass?

Give us a break you little hobbit hypocrite! We’ll say this much, you got to be living with the smartest man in the world cause he’s smart enough not to marry you for why buy the COW if the MILK is FREE.  It’s not cute anymore! You’re much older now and you don’t run good people’s minds despite what you tell yourself at night!Your sister likes to think she runs the whole damn county and can buy it all with the money from the Church of IKE, but it must run in the family …  Menopause Crazy and no doubt about it, even Cassandra Huff who runs with the Gerry Hough HATE group and hates all SS said the same damn thing!  That might be why her unemployment is about up, and HUFF may have to PUFF once again, and get back to that corner she worked up at the college flagging down every male she saw, and up and down that hill “HIGH” on that funny pill she always took. Corky and the Democrap and Pathfinder of Bullshit had to FIRE HUFF for she fell off the DEEP END!

Now that we know what Karen Elkin is really like and how she really feels without all the bullshit and lies, it makes us want to rethink our candidate for Sheriff!

Karen said Gerwig would do the same as Metz did, but we’re beginning to think that’s a lie! Sometimes even the best fall for the biggest line of BS!

Berk Reed has really heavy WACO connections we hear especially as Shelly’s ex husband and this bunch just might have to switch gears now that we get the whole picture.  What the hell isn’t there anybody in this town Shelly hasn’t fucked? Jesus! Never trust a WACO” Clone and that’s for sure because you know what side their breads buttered on and it’s not yours!

The Central WV SS took another vote after a protest was made and have said NO to BERK REED for Sheriff, but we won’t endorse Gerwig, unless he admits to lying to a grand jury about the value of evidence proved by a Secret Audio tape that is published on the Gilmer Free Press for all to hear, involving the famous “Travesty of Justice,” case. (But article must be accessed by Internet Explorer to hear audio file)

All we look for in a candidate is someone to do the right thing and take an honest complaint without protecting his legal buddies!  Were we wrong?  Maybe so but if we were wrong — we’re smart enough to admit it now …just before the Primary Election Day!

With CHUCK SPEARS the former Governors right hand man (don’t get any on ya) calling the shots at Glenville State nobody wants to take the chance of being the NEXT BASIL FRED HILL and be found floating down the Crooked River when the Spring comes! The CROOKS from Crooked County are nobody to mess with, they will KILL you or RUIN you forever, this is something we can back up with fact.
Erik Davis a GSC Football player was charged with rape but found innocent after another dishonest Courtroom performance by the infamous Crooks of Gilmer County!! Davis at the same time was fighting a COCAINE CASE in FLA …Misconduct at its finest in Crooked County and the first of the many cover ups of crimes against the citizens of Gilmer County!!
The ERIK DAVIS Rape of a local high school girl at his apartment after a party was only the first of many rapes of White, sometimes teen girls, while the NEGRO GSC Football player – just like Davis – have been able to RAPE with impunity for the last seven years and we are god damn sick of it!

Covering up a RAPE on Campus at GSC is easy now!

The Gilmer County Sheriff can get away with anything—including murder! Just ask Fred Hill

“I spoke with a citizen yesterday who wanted to talk to me who is out of Cedarville.  He said the Church of Ike couldn’t pay him enough to vote for Larry Chapman”

…And that back when Chapman first ran he paid this one old timer $100 to go out of county and pick up people who had moved but hadn’t registered in their new county and bring them back here to vote.  I find that very plausible as Jean Butcher’s Deputy Clerk told this  Concerned Citizen  I’d find a lot of “Empty houses” still on the voters registration list, is what we heard a told to one Concerned Citizen, and I thought that an odd comment.  Not to mention Chapman has a habit of putting his signs at empty houses.

Also the empty house voting thing and how the reason Larry Chapman was voted out last time was his two faced run back and forth between dumping Shelly DeMarino and trashing Darrell Ramsey by going door to door saying Darrell was gay.  Then it was Chapman running to Shelly to cry later, because he couldn’t believe Gilmer County voted Ramsey in after what all he had told them. Larry was always leaving voters with the thought … “Is he a pitcher or a catcher, that queer candidate for County Commission?”

 Just a little two faced weasel is what that darn Larry Chapman is and nothing has changed not one damn thing.  He even had the nerve to ask someone to bring him a copy of the OEPA audit because (though he wants to be Commissioner) he doesn’t know how to find it on his computer and he “didn’t know” anything at all about the schools being taken over but his excuse at the EDA was so he’d have money to keep his son and so his grandson who goes to elementary school around.


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!!

“The ELITE, the power hungry, they gave the SS life, and in return we gave them hell! Now the SS is as Cold as Ice! I hope we live to tell the tale  …  I hope we live to tell!”

Vote Tuesday the 8th in the Democratic and Republican Primary, but don’t vote for the ones that want to keep us enslaved…

“Shout, shout …  let it all out! Integrity, Commitment and Truth, these are the things I can do without!” .. say the Demi-Gods from the Church of Ike who the common folk down by the Crooked River don’t like!

The Gilmer Free PressThe Clarksburg Exponent-Telegraph on Sunday, July 26, 2015 published the following article about whether the Harrison County Commission violated the State code in hiring of an County Administrator.

Gilmer County Commission has hired three administrators in past 3 or 4 years!

My question is: Did the Gilmer County Commission Violate section 7-1-1a of West Virginia Code?

CLARKSBURG EXPONENT TELEGRAM:
COUNTY CLERK: HARRISON COMMISSION MAY HAVE VIOLATED STATE CODE IN HIRING OF ADMINISTRATOR

CLARKSBURG — The Harrison County Commission may have violated a state law that dictates the process for modifying a county’s government when it hired County Administrator Willie Parker in 2013.

That’s according to County Clerk Susan Thomas, who pointed to section 7-1-1a of West Virginia Code, which outlines a series of steps to be followed before altering a county’s form of government — including the hiring of a county administrator. These steps include passing a resolution seeking approval from the Legislature and collecting signatures from 10 percent of the county’s registered voters.

Connie O Stinky Commissioner Administrator shown on right, with HESS, KENNEDY —

How it used to be in Gilmer County ….Connie O Stinky Gilmer County Commission Administrator shown on right, with HESS, (left)KENNEDY —” And is he a pitcher or a catcher? .. Darrel Ramsey,” whose son said dude had sex with a boy from the head start program when the son was drunk as hell at the folk festival back in 2010 the summer the Butcher Bitches BROKE BAD on the CalPatty Press.

“The way I look at it, they’re violating 7-1-1a and have been since he was hired,” Thomas said. “They never changed the form of government, and I think (Parker) is doing things that are outside the realm of what an administrative assistant would do. He’s making decisions I think that should be made by an elected official.”

The Taylor County Commission recently reversed its decision to hire a county administrator after consulting with prosecutors during a special meeting June 29.

Taylor County Assistant Prosecutor Shawn Nines said he informed the commissioners of 7-1-1a of state code as it applied to their hiring of a county administrator.

On June 12, the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals issued a memorandum decision in Nicholas County Commission v. Tim Clifford, another case pertaining to 7-1-1a.

In the case, the Supreme Court ruled 3-2, affirming a circuit court ruling that the Nicholas County Commission had hired a county administrator without following the steps outlined in state code for altering the form of county government.

“It is undisputed that the Commission’s actions were taken without complying with the requirements of West Virginia Code 7-1-1a,” the written decision states. “We find no error in the circuit court’s order annulling and vacating the position of county administrator and rescinding the hiring of (Nicholas County Administrator Roger) Beverage based upon its conclusion that the Commission bestowed upon Mr. Beverage as county administrator unfettered discretionary authority as to the affairs and administration of the Commission and, in doing so, changed the existing form of county government without first complying with any of the requirements of West Virginia Code 7-1-1a.”

But Parker and the commissioners who hired him drew distinctions between what transpired with the county administrators in Nicholas and Taylor counties and the situation in Harrison County.

Harrison County had established the position of county administrator prior to Parker’s hiring, a fact both Parker and Commission President Ron Watson were quick to point out.

“The county administrator had always been a part of the county for a number of years,” Watson said.

According to Thomas, the first record she could find of an individual officially holding the title of “county administrator” was James Harris, who was promoted to the position in 1998. Others served in administrative-type roles prior to Harris, Thomas noted.

Based on available records, the county administrator position was vacant from 2006 until 2013, when Parker was hired, according to Thomas.

Section 7-1-1a went into effect in 2008, according to an official with the West Virginia Legislature.

Regardless of whether the position had been created or not, Watson said the duties Parker performs do not constitute an alteration of the county government since there’s no transfer of power away from the county commission.

“In Willie’s case, anything that he has done since we’ve hired him, he’s been directed by the county commission, and he hasn’t generated that on his own,” Watson said. “It may have the appearance that he’s done something (on his own), but I can assure you and anyone else that any action he takes has gotten the approval of a county commissioner.”

Parker echoed that assessment, and he also pointed to Section 7-1-3m of West Virginia Code, which came up during the Nicholas County case and states that county commissions “are hereby empowered to employ, fix compensation for and discharge … personnel, including specialists and consultants, as may from time to time be necessary to aid (commissions) in exercising their powers or discharging their duties as provided by law and including a county administrator.”

Parker characterized his role as a staff member employed by the commissioners to aid them in carrying out their responsibilities.

“I don’t think the commission has given any level of their constitutional authority to me,” Parker said. “They’ve employed me to provide them recommendations, act on their behalf as they’ve so authorized, which is in line with 7-1-3m.”

Former commissioner Mike Romano said Parker’s role during his time on the commission didn’t violate 7-1-1a as he interprets it.

“The hiring of Mr. Parker as administrator was carefully considered by the commission in that he was hired to fill a role as the manager for the county commission,” Romano said. “He was not delegated any constitutional authority whatsoever, and he answers directly to the county commission in all actions he takes. That really takes the hiring out of the purview of a change in the form of government, because the county commission still maintains full control over all of its constitutionally delegated duties.”

Section 7-1-1a, for its purposes, describes the responsibilities of a county administrator in part as having “the authority to direct the administration of the county government under the supervision of the county commission. The county administrator shall carry out, execute and enforce all ordinances, policies, rules and regulations of the commission.” However, the description goes on to say that the county administrator would have the authority to “appoint or employ all subordinates and employees for whose duties or work he or she is responsible to the commission.”

Parker said he has no authority to hire or discharge staff.

According to the Supreme Court’s decision, Nicholas County officials who had their appeal struck down had made a similar argument regarding their hiring of a county administrator.

“Petitioners argue that the evidence showed that Mr. Beverage was not given all of the powers of a ‘county administrator’ as contemplated by West Virginia Code 7-1-1a because he was not permitted to hire or discharge employees; was not a member of the county commission; and would not have full decision-making authority,” the decision reads.

Thomas said she wants to make sure there’s a clear statutory basis for the duties Parker performs and expressed concern that — without approval from the Legislature and from voters — an unelected official was assuming responsibilities in Harrison County that should fall to the elected constitutional officers.

“I’m very concerned,” Thomas said. “I’m not only concerned as a public official, but I’m also concerned as a taxpayer.”

Brian Kennedy stepped down as President of the Gilmer County Commmission and let Larry Chapman take over the lead chair.

Brian Kennedy stepped down as President of the Gilmer County Commmission and let Larry Chapman take over the lead chair.

Brian Kennedy who was PRESIDENT of the GILMER COUNTY COMMISSION when he was arrested for a DUI has waited 360 days for his day in court on that traffic infraction,he is headed to court this coming Tuesday at 10am. Brian, shortly after being detained for DUI got to be immediately arraigned on a late night Saturday night. Carol Wolfe was called at home and came rushing down to the courthouse to make sure the President of the Gilmer County Commission did not have to go to jail, like the rest of us would have, and that he could be released on his own recognizance.

When a criminal suspect is arrested, booked, and granted “own recognizancerelease, no bail money needs to be paid to the court, and no bond is posted. The suspect is merely released after promising, in writing, to appear in court for all upcoming proceedings. Only, in the case of Brian Kennedy he was never taken to jail and booked like you or I would have been. The Walrus got to go home to his new girlfriend, the one he was banging behind his now divorced wife’ Tara Kennedy’s back. Hoo ya! Tara Kennedy was a probation officer for the 14th district of the West Virginia Circuit Court, but her career became a train wreck when a complaint filed against her a few years back led to scandal and some serious truth being told about what a dumb bitch she really is.

Home of the 14th district circuit court and the Gilmer County Commission. The locals call this place the Crooked County Courthouse.

David Karickhoff the skilled attorney that got 357 Evey off on a murder rap. Karickhoff has been hired as the defense attorney for Brian Kennedy and we heard from the magistrates clerk he is already asking to continue the court date from Tuesday July 14th to some date in the future, until hopefully we all forget the “MY BAD” done by Brian Kennedy.

Here is how the headline read that reported the DUI bust of Brian Kennedy…

GLENVILLE, W. Va. — The West Virginia State Police arrested and charged Gilmer County Commissioner Brian Kennedy with a DUI over the weekend, although Kennedy was never taken to jail, but straight to the Gilmer County Courthouse where MAGISTRATE CAROL WOLFE was waiting for him alone so he would not have to be booked into Central Regional Jail like a normal citizen, maintaining his power elite status.

Senior Trooper K. J. Varner II pulled Kennedy over at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday after he was seen driving erratically on U.S. 33 in Gilmer County. This was NOT the first time for Brian Kennedy, that is for sure.

Once pulled over, Varner said he detected alcohol on Kennedy’s breath and initiated the proper procedures.

A secondary chemical test revealed Kennedy’s BAC was at 0.089, which is over the 0.08 limit.

Varner said Kennedy was cooperative while detained until around 10:30 p.m., when Magistrate Judge Carol L. Wolfe arraigned and released him on a personal recognizance bond.

According to Judge Wolfe’s office, as of Monday, no dates have been set in regard to the case, in fact Carol Wolfe recused herself from hearing the case and so did Magistrate Skinner, leaving NO MAGISTRATE available in Gilmer County to hear the case, therefore a court date cannot be set at this time.

A representative from the Gilmer County Commission has not yet been available for comment on the matter.

Common Sense for the Common Crooked County Crook IS what we got when we elected self proclaimed Gilmer County elitist Crooked County Commission President Brian Kennedy! His Common sense platform Kennedy ran on to get elected does not look sensible anymore, that is for sure!

And NOW some comments from Gilmer County Citizens posted on the Gilmer Free Press.

Is this the same joker that ran on the platform of   “Common Sense for the Common Man”? by vote him in again  

What gives people??
According to other posts he was driving on a revoked/suspended license??
This is now how many arrests for him??
Most citizens arrested like this go straight to being booked and jailed…….yet he walks on a personal recognizance bond?
Its not right people??
And we will get him for 6 more years as a commissioner??

Comment by doing GC proud 

Tara Kennedy was accused not too far in the distant past of being involved in a conspiracy that led to a wrongful conviction by knowingly presenting false evidence in an official probation report.  Since then Kennedy has made several outbursts in court and recently attempted to run over the publisher of the Gilmer Free Press, and actually did run over somebody’s foot in the incident!

The law use to be if you were drinking and driving you went to jail for 24 hours and your license was taken away. Then you had to take classes to get it back and go to AAA meetings too. Does this law only go for a few people and not all? How can we walk tall? He could of killed himself or some other person. What is wrong with the people of Gilmer county, don’t you care any more? And the people we elected to hold up the law, give them a slap on the wrist and that is it. He could of killed one of your children or you. Would you not care? Even if you know the person who is arrested, they should get the same treatment as the rest of the people. Just because he is a commissioner doesn’t mean a thing when it comes to some ones life. Think about it.

Comment by Betty  

Nothing will happen.  Just watch.  And I sincerely doubt his alcohol level was ONLY that low if the officer was clearly able to recognize alcohol on his breath.  Kennedy has his bread buttered and he knows it, and he’s going to slide right out of this.  It’s how they do it in Gilmer County.

Comment by Watch and see  

Let’s not forget that Kennedy got pulled over for ERRATIC DRIVING.  Reports say he had over the legal amount of alcohol in his body.  Ok, so the jail is full and he’s a “big shot”, I get it.  But we all KNOW if it was one of us, they would have found space – but here’s my REAL question.  Was Commissioner Brian Kennedy actually booked for breaking the law and driving dangerously??  And Magistrate Carole Wolfe DID come out special on a Saturday night to help a brother out – but WHERE is Mr. Kennedy’s booking photo, and if there is not one, I’d like to know why.  That would have nothing to do with jail “space”.  Here we go AGAIN

To previous comment-er – they don’t post this stuff in the “local” print version of news like the Glenville Democrat and Pathfinder of BULLSHIT because you aren’t supposed to KNOW what the “big boys” are getting away with!!! comment by Watch and see  

How many times has the Gilmer commission president been arrested now?  Answer:  A bunch.
As well as DUI….wasn’t he driving on a revoked or suspended license as well?  No mention of arrest for that!
Was this the 3rd DUI?
Brian, we have a local “NarcAnon” chapter!! by get it right

THESE ARE JUST SOME OF THE OPINIONS OF CONCERNED CITIZENS OF GILMER COUNTY.  BUT PLEASE TRY TO UNDERSTAND NOT ONE SINGLE MEMBER OF THE COURTHOUSE CROWD GIVES A SHIT WHAT ANYBODY THINKS BECAUSE THEY DO WHAT THEY WANT TO IN GILMER COUNTY WEST VIRGINIA REGARDLESS OF THE LAW OF THE LAND.

Brian Kennedy has also dropped the BALL on the Cottrill estate debacle.  The final accounting was submitted to the Gilmer County Commission and the SALE of the alleged property was NEVER MENTIONED in the accounting and also the funeral expenses were never part of the FINAL ACCOUNTING which according to the report given by Linda Huff the fiduciary commissioner the accounting given by the executor of the estate Mike Murphy is a complete and utter JOKE!!!

GIVEN THIS INFORMATION BY AN APPOINTED OFFICER OF THE COMMISSION CONCERNING THE COTTRILL ESTATE NO ACTION WAS TAKEN BY THE COMMISSION. WHY? BECAUSE IT SEEMS THE GILMER COUNTY COMMISSION REALLY ARE DUMB HILLBILLIES AND DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO.  NOW I ASK YOU. KNOWING THIS. SHOULD ANY OF THEM BE IN OFFICE? ABSOLUTELY NOT IS THE ANSWER. DEPENDING ON THE OUTCOME OF THIS DUI CASE COULD DEPEND ON WHETHER CITIZENS DEMAND THE DISMISSAL OF KENNEDY FROM THE COMMISSION AND ALL OTHERS THAT ARE SO STUPID THEY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY ARE DOING. IS IT BECAUSE THEY ARE DRUNK ALL THE TIME?

This reporter spoke with Timothy Hoover the magistrate clerk in Braxton County to get all the facts on Brian Kennedy’s court appearance. Tim told me that Mary Beth Smith would be traveling to Gilmer County at 10am on July 14th to hear the DUI case of Gilmer County Commissioner Brian Kennedy since both Gilmer County magistrates recused themselves.

Representing the WALRUS Brian Kennedy will be David Karickhoff who represented ERIK DAVIS in a rape case that happened at GSC. Davis was under arrest from FLA authorities at the time for a Cocaine case, but Karickhoff got Davis off on the rape case and he also won another big case in which Everett Campbell shot his estranged wife’s boyfriend with a 357 in cold blood on the front porch of the Glenville State Police detachment headquarters.

Campbell did a year in jail on a misdemeanor charge for the murder, but should have gotten a long prison sentence.  Karickhoff is the best defense attorney there is around here, and will most likely pull off another miracle.

However, a young woman who has proved to be a tough prosecutor from Calhoun County Shannon Jones Johnson will be prosecuting the case since Gerald B Hough is recused.

TUESDAY JULY 14th at 10am is the court date for Brian Kennedy, but I bet you anything that David Karickhoff calls and gets the case continued, and then he  will continue it again, and again, until we all forget about the BUST of the Walrus County Commissioner Brian Kennedy. We can only hope the prosecutor from Calhoun County will fight for what is right for… I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together.
See how they run like pigs from a gun, see how they fly.
I’m crying.

Sitting on a cornflake, waiting for the van to come.
Corporation tee-shirt, stupid bloody TUESDAY.
Man, you been a naughty boy, you let your face grow long.
I am the egg man, they are the egg men.
I am the walrus, goo goo g’joob.
