Editors note, with text provided by Editor Edison CalPatty Press Editor for Revenge of the Ghost Wolf–
What a big lot of bullshit this meeting about the alleged attempted arson in Normantown WV was which was held almost one month after the alleged incident of Arson August the 13th 2015 —The meeting started out as bullshit because it was suppose to be at 4:30 pm but was changed to 6:30 by the WVDOE but they did not notify anyone about the change in time. Oh, yeah they will deny this fact like the Butcher Bitches denied sucking major dick to their mommy and daddy.
I would like to know who would benefit the most by the Normantown school building burning down, for therein lies the answer to who the people are that are probably responsible for this alleged arson just waiting to happen.
What I find especially funny is that it is the same ole same ole GILMER COUNTY LIES ABOUT AN INVESTIGATION BEING UNDER WAY WHICH BY THE WAY GIVES THESE DISHONEST FUCKS FROM CHARLESTON AN OUT.
The deputy fire marshal in charge of the investigation(that will never occur) -Jason D. Baltic Assistant State Fire Marshal is the cover dude. If anyone wants to take action on the debacle —-that is the dude that needs to be removed from this matter entirely. Figure that out, and these lying assholes that includes Cindy Daniel deputy dumb fuck won’t have a cover story and all they will be left with is the lies they are trying to tell while covering up the truth.
My hats off to Dave Ramezan for having the balls to call these people liars to their faces on the below video that is a must see. Also when called liars these pieces of shit don’t even try to deny it. When Dave Corcoran for the Glenville Democrap and Pathfinder of BULLSHIT was called out for making some shit up about bomb threats he quickly backs down and says something to the effect of he may have been mistaken, and that the false reporting was his fault.
THIS LYING TO THE PUBLIC AND COVER UP OF CRIMES IS THE SAME KIND OF CRAP THAT HAS BEEN GOING ON IN GILMER COUNTY FOR YEARS AND YEARS — AND HERE WE ARE GOING THROUGH THE SAME TYPE OF HOLY CRAP BEING LIED TO ALL OVER AGAIN.
IN CONCLUSION I THINK CINDY DANIEL WAS SENT DOWN FROM THE STATE TO SQUASH THIS — WHAT THEY SEE AS AN UPRISING OF PARENTS AND TEACHERS — AND SHE IS JUST BULLSHITTING EVERYBODY. BUT I WAS SURE OF IT WHEN SHE PAWNED THE WHOLE THING OFF ON THIS BALTIC DUDE DEPUTY FIRE MARSHAL WHO NORMA HURLEY HAD ALREADY TALKED TO —- AND GOT THE DATES STRAIGHT AS TO WHEN THEIR SHOE IN DUDE WAS NOTIFIED — AND THAT DATE WAS CONFIRMED AS 18 AUGUST THEREFORE NORMA FUCKED UP MS DANIEL’S BULLSHIT STORY.
Gabe Devono superintendent of Gilmer County Schools is the most dishonest of them all, for he tried to make Dave Ramezan the bad guy by making false statements about the reporting, but the people of GILMER COUNTY KNOW THAT THE GILMER FREE PRESS ALWAYS HAS REPORTED THE TRUTH EVEN IF IT MADE THE GFP UNPOPULAR WITH POWERS THAT BE.
IT IS OBVIOUS TO ANY SMART PEOPLE IN GILMER COUNTY THAT AN ARSON WAS SET TO HAPPEN — IT WAS DISCOVERED — THE CHURCH OF IKE GOT WIND OF IT – MADE SOME CALLS TO CHARLESTON AND THEY SENT DOWN THE BULLSHIT BRIGADE.
PLEASE BELIEVE THERE WILL BE NO INVESTIGATION — EVERYTHING STATED BY DANIEL AND THAT IDIOT SHIT FOR BRAINS DEVONO IS GOOD FOR NOTHING BUT THE MANURE PILE.
THESE PEOPLE ARE PROFESSIONAL LIARS AND IF I WAS AT THAT MEETING I WOULD HAVE BEEN TAKEN OUT IN CUFFS FOR THE FACT I WOULD HAVE CALLED THEM ALL LIARS TO THEIR FACES AND I WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN NICE ABOUT IT —BECAUSE I HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF THE CROOKS FROM CROOKED COUNTY THAT LIVE DOWN BY THE CROOKED RIVER. IT IS A GOOD THING I HAD JURY DUTY ON THE TENTH OF SEPTEMBER AND COULD NOT MAKE THE MEETING — NOW HERE IS WHAT THE GFP REPORTS
TO ALL OF GILMER COUNTY – – – – LET IT BE KNOWN:
Quoting press release from BOE Head Devono – – –
“I, Gabriel Devono, called the State Fire Marshall, which began a standard investigation.“
Reading the questions on Gilmer Free Press and comparing same with the “I, Gabriel Devano” press release, a body has to wonder if the author of the press release isn’t simply attempting to muddy the waters, brush this ‘candlewick’ attempted arson under the ‘rug-cover’ of the West Virginia Board of Education?
Gilmer citizens are well aware of the lack of transparency, outright lies, withheld information, lack of notice for what should be public meetings, secret meetings, (principled closed door meetings as the local president refers) disinformation, the pass-the-buck and I’ll get back to you responses. Which then never happens.
We have almost five years of West Virginia State Board of Education intervention experience now, we know the standard play book responses. The State Board needs to take note of Abraham Lincoln’s quote, “you can fool some of the people some of the time but not all of the people all of the time.“ Mr. Green, Mr. Martirano, Mz. Daniel, here in Gilmer we have been well aware of your game for years now. You have educated us with the Manchins, McGraws, and Blankenships.
The arson attempt at the Normantown School required a FULL, FORENSIC INVESTIGATION. Nothing less.
Those attending the spin response in Normantown, to the arson situation, mentioned several minutes of mostly ‘aah’, ‘aah’, followed by more ‘ahh’, ‘ahh’, and then topped with a helping candy cotton. Sweet but no substance.
It is important for Gilmer Free Press to publish the video of the meeting if there is one.
What we do know. We have had a crime, breaking and entering, attempted arson, in a public building with children present. Common sense would tell you there is an arsonist in our midst. So what will be the next target? Glenville Elementary? Sand Fork Elementary? Gilmer County High School? When will the perpetrator strike again?
~~ author on file~~how many ‘aah’ and ‘ahhs’ does it take ~~
~~~ Readers’ Comments ~~~
Devono keeps demanding for citizens to call him. Something akin to calling the WVDOE fox in the chicken coop?
You high paid WVDOE big shots should huddle to figure out why the calls are not rolling in. Maybe you could apply one of your rubrics you all like to talk about.
WVDOE why don’t you reassign Devono to do PR to bail you out of your school system money malfunction scandal and to sell your common core snake oil?
I could only stomach first 2 minutes of the video.
Went back and counted 25 aah’s in those 2 minutes.
Mr. Devano accuses both Calhoun’s Hur Herald and Gilmer Free Press of not printing his “response”??? That’s disturbing since both put his response out in an easily accessible hyperlink. Click and read. This man does not understand how to double click on a link but spend hundreds of thousands of our tax dollars on technology???
It’s obvious all that’s important is his story, not the truth. The transportation director described something going up stairs and down the hall. At least he didn’t lie to tell the pile of paper towel on the floor story.
Local Fire and Police not notified? They could have been in the superintendent’s office getting information, on their way to the scene and notifying the Fire Marshal 10 minutes from the time the call came in.
It was the first day of school, Devono didn’t know what it was. Not a soul brought in to check it that day and the kids stayed on sight. They have gym and music in that building. What if was toxic?? Didn’t he say somebody got sick when they went in there?
I just watched the video of the Sept. 10 meeting. They reported “a volunteer fireman went into the building to get something” then told who it was. Later, they said the fire department had NOT been notified. If you were a volunteer fireman and found a wicking set up in a school building that looked like someone was planning arson, would you not notify your own fire department FIRST before even telling the superintendent of schools?? Not one person at that meeting asked how, if a fireman FOUND the problem, the fire department didn’t know about it! What else don’t we know??
And why aren’t inspections made of closed buildings to be sure there aren’t squatters in them, damage, etc? That seems very strange.
Oh yeah, here we go. The standard Gilmer County tactic of starting an “investigation” that never gets investigate and never was. They just keep it ‘open’ so the public can’t get information until the incident and ‘investigation’ is officially closed. They’ll keep it ‘open’ till people forget… except, people Won’t forget.
I didn’t hear any to any real question get answered in this video, but if they are correct about body language speaking volumes… this video shows it.
WE are on YOUR side Mr. Ramezan! Your site speaks for itself, documents exist. You have done nothing but present truth to the people in all of the local counties, you’re a man of your word and you work with TRUE transparency and ability to let people talk, and we THANK YOU!
As the man said, show the people the PICTURES, we know they exist.
Where were the other Board Members? Why only one from Center District and one from City? Are they too busy worrying about what goes on in Lewis County? Much easier to deal with what you have no say so about isn’t it. (Not that citizens hear anything about that either). What about Gilmer County schools? Devano admits in a very low tone he didn’t want the Board to say anything after he showed them pictures but never apologized for publishing that across TWO COUNTIES he NEVER told ANYBODY to keep quiet about this?
Watching this performance, hope this State appointed BOE Superintendent doesn’t apply for too many jobs.
Guess that the lady at right foreground is the Daniel lady from state board of education in Charleston?
She attempts to give cover to state superintendent. Wonder how long it will take her figure out she will have a full time job doing just that?
It appears she does not even understand the roll of a superintendent job to provide information to a wide variety of people, primarily the elected board.
Did I see this guy on SNL ?
This lady Mrs. Daniel is there to support the state superintendent from what this video shows. It was good of her to let the public talk but is she going to do anything about the superintendent’s intentional secrecy? Can she do anything to bring about transparency from any state appointed superintendent without Mr. Martirano’s say so? Exactly who is the head boss man in Charleston? Are the county superintendents running the show with no one to answer to when they do wrong?
Why is the WVDOE behind Calhoun with using even the most basic of technology?
Why couldn’t the WVDOE have used the 107.7 radio station to announce the change of time for the Normantown meeting? Mr. Woodward who is Calhoun’s school superintendent did it today when there was a water problem.
I will tell you why. The WVDOE did not want many to know about the meeting time change so people who would come early would go home and not be heard!
The time switcheroo and scheduling the meeting at a time with a known conflict for families by the WVDOE shows the level of dishonesty we are up against.
Mr. Joe Frasure, you gained lots of admiration when you refused to lie about the wick. If retaliation for your honesty is hinted or if it occurs in the slightest way the WVDOE will have more blow back and it will not be held back.
So the custodian’s son was in the building on the first day of school. Why? Not an employee and not a fireman. Why was he even there? Who was this so called fireman that didn’t report to his Chief? Not one from Gilmer County and that’s for sure.
The Fire Marshal took pictures so why would he need Mr. Devono’s? Do the facts change according to who has the documents and who does the reporting? So it would seem.
Why is it under investigation if the evidence was too old and the police not called in? Will the “investigation” stay open until somebody confesses? More than likely that’s how long it will be until anyone gets to see those pictures.
When the Superintendent and his own employee’s story of what was there differ what do you belive.
It’s almost pathological how fast Mr Devono will change his story. I didn’t say keep a secret, I said not to say anything. It was a fireman, it was the janitor’s son.
Lowest blow yet to attack the GFP and David Ramezan after what this county has gone through with the lies, secrecy, mismanagement, waste, cover up, deceit, and treachery.
Were it not for the GFP the Normantown incident would have been swept under the rug which is exactly what the WVDOE intended.
How has all this worked out for you WVDOE? Someone wrote in that the WVDOE is its own worst enemy which is the truth.
After this latest Normantown slap it is more evident that the WVDOE opposes all local level authority.
What a low blow not to involve our local fire fighters who risk their lives all the time or us. They would have known what to do and to do it right.
That is what the WVDOE did not want to happen——doing it right and in a timely way to try to catch the criminal.
The crime scene is contaminated, bats were added to the story, and the WVDOE’s spin machine is going full throttle.
Let us pray that the DOE’s rep applies for other jobs. If he will let us know each time he does, we will hold county-wide prayer vigils to ask for divine intervention for his career advancement.
The comment about what can Dr. Daniel do is a good one. As a case in point the Clarksburg paper announced that Mr. Devono was selected as Blankenship’s replacement. That was in April or May of the year he arrived in Gilmer County.
The interesting point is that it was not until June of that year when it was on the WVBOE’s agenda to consider Devono’s move from RESA 7 to be the appointed superintendent.
How can that be explained? It does not seem that anyone, including Dr. Daniel, in the WVDOE or the WVBOE has authority to supervise intervention superintendents or to make decisions affecting them.
There was no sense of urgency on the part of the Superintendent or it wouldn’t have been four days later before he even hinted of the problem to local BOE. He didn’t find it necessary to report it to local constabulary at all so what would make anyone believe he’d called the state any quicker? He has no track record of good faith action in Gilmer County. Don’t believe he has one in Charleston either.
Two of 5 local school board members attended.
Misty has much illness in her family. Understand.
Dr. Armour and Mrs. Hurley appeared as responsible, concerned, and interested board members.
Bill Simmons and Tom Ratliff. Where were you?
You both will be remembered come election time.
