    Group alleges county violated election laws

    Says complaints against Breidenthal were attempt to thwart re-election 2

 

 

 

" A local property rights group has filed a complaint with the Oregon Secretary of State's Office claiming two Jackson County officials violated election laws by taking steps interfering with Commissioner Doug Breidenthal’s re-election bid.
Citizens for Constitutional Fairness, which supported the 2004 property rights law Measure 37, filed its complaint last week and specifically alleges violations by county Administrator Danny Jordan and county Auditor Eric Spivak.
“I have no doubts this one is going to the Attorney General’s Office, too,” said David Smith, president of Citizens for Constitutional Fairness.
The complaint alleges violations of election law in 2014 as well as in the current election cycle. Smith said the reference to the 2014 election is over criticism the county directed at Commissioner Colleen Roberts, who was then a candidate. Roberts, however, said she remembers being criticized by two sitting commissioners but not by other county officials. Since taking office, she said she is “favorably impressed” by Jordan.
"If I have a complaint, I will make it myself, thank you very much," Roberts stated in an email. "I want nothing to do with Doug’s petty complaints and harassment of our county, our Administrator, or myself."
The complaint alleges, “Certain Jackson County employees have engaged in election related activities which oppose the re-election of the incumbent and which were conducted in county offices during work hours.”
Spivak, the county auditor, said that an ethics complaint he filed on Oct. 22, 2015, had nothing to do with Breidenthal's bid for re-election. The Oregon Department of Justice has an ongoing criminal investigation into Breidenthal that is related to the Spivak's ethics complaint. Breidenthal has said the ethics complaint was orchestrated by Jordan.
Smith said he commended Breidenthal for his efforts supporting Measure 37 years ago. He said he had been suspicious of the timing of the county’s complaint against Breidenthal. After looking into the matter, Smith said he believes Breidenthal was wronged.
Smith said Breidenthal had informed county officials in 2014 that there was a separate fund created by the Association of Oregon Counties for Breidenthal, who was seeking an office with the Western Interstate Region, an affiliate of the National Association of Counties. More than a year later, after Breidenthal announced he was running for re-election, the county filed its complaint based on issues with that AOC account, Smith said.
“Why did they wait that long?” Smith said. “It looks a little suspicious.”
Molly Woon, spokeswoman for the Oregon Secretary of State's Office, confirmed the complaint had been received, and said investigators are looking into it to determine whether any civil or criminal violations had occurred.
“It’s difficult to tell how long the process will take,” Woon said.
The case could be handled by the Secretary of State's Office or, if criminal wrongdoing is considered, the Oregon Department of Justice would take over that portion of the investigation.
A preliminary review by the Oregon Government Ethics Commission found Breidenthal may have violated Oregon law concerning the receipt of gifts valued at more than $50 from parties with interests before the Jackson County Board of Commissioners, the use of an official position for financial gain and possible improper reporting of payments to cover trip expenses.
In March, the Oregon Department of Justice began a criminal investigation of Breidenthal in a probe that parallels a separate investigation by the Ethics Commission. The Ethics Commission suspended its inquiries pending the outcome of the justice department investigation, which is still underway.
Breidenthal said he is not a party to the new complaint filed by Citizens for Constitutional Fairness but generally agreed with the allegations against county officials.
“I think they are closer to revealing the truth about all this,” he said.
Breidenthal contended the allegations against Jordan and Spivak exceed the gravity of those the county filed against him. Many of the allegations are similar to allegations that Breidenthal has raised himself previously, he said.
Spivak, the county auditor, said his office began looking into Breidenthal’s travel expenses on Oct. 14, 2015, after a staff person was told by the Association of Oregon Counties that a check was issued directly to Breidenthal, who was representing the county with the AOC.
On the same day, an email from the AOC indicated Breidenthal had a separate account called Friends of Doug Breidenthal, in which contributions had been received from several local companies doing business with the county. Breidenthal also made a $1,000 contribution from the account to Commissioner Rick Dyer, who was running for office at the time.
Spivak, in an email response, said it is within his authority as the county auditor to examine a commissioner’s expenses, and that it is also in his authority to report to the appropriate government body if he sees a potential violation of Oregon law.
The Citizens for Constitutional Fairness complaint alleges Spivak has provided different statements to the media about who was involved in filing the complaint.
“I have stated in that and in all other reports that I met with county counsel and the county administrator to discuss the matter, and that I made the decision to file the complaint,” Spivak stated.
He said he was never “directed” to write the complaint, as was alleged in the Citizens for Constitutional Fairness complaint.
Spivak said he sent out a statement to help the public better understand his reasons for filing the complaint. “I do not believe that explaining my actions or related events to the public can or should be defined as 'interfering with the commissioner/candidate’s re-election bid,’ ” Spivak stated. He said he believes in being transparent with the public and in being responsive to media inquiries by providing clarifying statements.
Spivak said he’s unaware of any efforts on the part of the county to engage in any prohibited activity in the 2014 election involving Roberts. “I am disappointed that the complainant did not come forth with that information in a timely manner,” Spivak wrote.
Jordan stated in an email response to Citizens for Constitutional Fairness: "Should the Elections Division determine that the allegation warrants investigation, I am confident the Elections Division will find that I have acted appropriately in my capacity as County Administrator."

Jackson County Under Investigation

 A RASH OF ISSUES'

Scandals shake Jackson County's government

Three high-ranking county officials have been tainted by scandal in recent weeks

 

 

Jackson County has been rocked by scandal, with three top officials coming under scrutiny following complaints over their personal conduct and in one case alleged criminal activity.
“There’s been a rash of issues,” Commissioner Rick Dyer said. “There’s been a little upheaval.”
Shane Hagey, Community Justice director, was placed on paid administrative leave after getting arrested Dec. 30 on charges of possession of methamphetamine. Hagey oversees a county department that among other things handles parole and probation for criminals, many of whom have had drug problems.
 
 Assessor Josh Gibson announced his resignation effective Dec. 31 amid questions about urinating on a golf course. Gibson has acknowledged he urinated outside, a relatively common practice among male golfers, but he denied exposing himself in front of a woman who was with his group. He also said he has had recent health issues.
 
 
Commissioner Doug Breidenthal is the subject of  an Oregon Government Ethics Commission complaint filed by county officials. Breidenthal has denied the allegations, which are related to an obscure campaign account and questions over $70,000 in travel expenses, but the complaint is still under review by the Ethics Commission.
 Because there is no common thread to the complaints, Dyer and former commissioners say it’s difficult to come up with a policy or educational tool to prevent similar issues from popping up in the future.Commissioners and county officials receive extensive training in ethics and are cautioned to avoid situations that would cause public perception problems.“No matter how many times you tell someone to watch their conduct, some people don’t hear the message,” Dyer said. “These are such isolated and different circumstances. I don’t think there is one magic bullet that could help.”Going forward, Dyer said, it might be helpful to continually stress to government officials that their jobs are under the spotlight with the community. He said top-ranking county officials need to be on their guard and conduct themselves appropriately while in office.Dyer said the allegations against Hagey are the most troublesome to him, because he’s known Hagey since grade school.“I would have never in a million years have suspected something like that,” he said.Hagey remains only charged with the crimes and not convicted, but Medford police say they found methamphetamine both when they arrested him and later at his house. An informant told them Hagey had been purchasing meth for at least a year.In past years, the county has struggled with organizational issues, including shrinking budgets and the temporary closure of its libraries, but only occasional issues arising about a county official's conduct.Former Commissioner C.W. Smith said, “I’m very disappointed. The county has been working hard for a number of years to build up its reputation.”
 He said the county improved its financial position despite declining revenues. “The county is in a very solvent position,” he said. Smith, a former Jackson County sheriff, said deputies and other officials were warned that three things could get them into trouble: extramarital affairs, gambling and drinking and drugs.
In addition, he said, government officials were expected to keep their personal financial affairs in order.“Many a good person has lost their career over things like this,” he said.Smith suggested the media could do a better job of vetting candidates for various positions, though Hagey was hired by the county for his job. Also, he suggested the county could conduct more thorough background checks, though many of the officials under scrutiny were well known in the area. At the same time, he said the county has been transparent about these issues. “I’ve been in other places where this stuff is swept under the rug,” he said. Even with safeguards in place, it’s difficult to figure out how people will act once they get in office, particularly in the case of the arrest of Hagey, Smith said.“I didn’t see that one coming,” he said. “Sometimes there’s a flaw in a person’s character that causes them to veer off their career path.”Former Commissioner Don Skundrick said he remembers starting his county job and receiving a lot of information about how public officials should avoid situations that would put the office in a bad light. “We all make mistakes as human beings, but when you’re in a position of authority, you’ve got to be careful,” he said.Like others, Skundrick said he was most surprised by the allegations against Hagey, whom he’s known for some time.“That was a shocker to me,” he said. Skundrick said he thought Gibson had been doing a good job as assessor. As to the urination on the golf course, Skundrick acknowledged he’s done it himself as have many of his golfing buddies. Skundrick said he supported an attempt in 2011 to make the assessor, county clerk and surveyor positions appointed rather than elected to better vet the candidates. However, Gibson was first appointed by the county commissioners after the previous assessor, Dan Ross, resigned. Later Gibson ran for office and was elected by the voters. Despite the scandals, Skundrick said, the county continues to run “exceptionally well.

"   In July 2009, four months after the loan was approved, the commissioners gave Jordan a 10 percent raise, bringing his salary to $170,060.

Commissioner C.W. Smith, who has been on the board since 2004, said the county approved Jordan’s loan to increase his compensation package during a time when he was being courted by other organizations. When asked about the board order’s vague wording, Smith said the county doesn’t like to broadcast an employee’s salary compensation. Smith said the loan wasn’t a secret, but acknowledged it would generate heat from the public no matter how it was handled.

The county routinely invests millions of dollars, gathering interest on its investments until the money needs to be spent. Unlike those investments, the money from Jordan’s loan can’t be tapped into as readily."

"It was pretty vague," said County Commissioner John Rachor, who was elected to the board in 2010. "Boy, it was really vague."
Rachor said the notice reflects a lack of transparency in government that he would like to improve. "

UPDATE: Rancher says warrants issued in Oregon standoff

By The Associated Press

Posted Jan. 5, 2016 at 5:59 PM
Updated Jan 5, 2016 at 9:53 PM


BURNS —  " A member of the small, armed group that has been occupying a national wildlife refuge in Oregon says he believes federal officials have issued warrants for the arrest of five group members.
LaVoy Finicum, an Arizona rancher, told reporters at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge Tuesday evening that he is one of the people who is a subject of the warrants, but he offered no details.
The FBI in Portland referred calls to the Harney County Joint Information Center, which said in a statement it had no information on arrests or arrest warrants and that authorities were "still working on a peaceful resolution."
Finicum, holding a rifle and a backpack, told reporters he would stay at the entrance to the refuge overnight so authorities could find him. Ammon Bundy, a group leader, said they would take a defensive position anticipating a possible raid.
The group calling itself Citizens for Constitutional Freedom said it wants an inquiry into whether the government is forcing ranchers off their land.
EARLIER (7 p.m.): Leader of armed group wants Oregon land transfer, then will go home
BURNS — A leader of the small, armed group that is occupying a remote national wildlife preserve in Burns said Tuesday they will go home when a plan is in place to turn over management of federal lands to locals.
Ammon Bundy told reporters at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge that ranchers, loggers and farmers should have control of federal land — a common refrain in a decades-long fight over public lands in the West.
"It is our goal to get the logger back to logging, the rancher back to ranching," said the son of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, who was involved in a high-profile 2014 standoff with the government over grazing rights.
The younger Bundy's anti-government group is critical of federal land stewardship, but environmentalists and others say U.S. officials should keep control for the broadest possible benefit to business, recreation and the environment.
The armed activists seized the refuge's headquarters Saturday night. Roughly 20 people bundled in camouflage, earmuffs and cowboy hats seem to be centered around a complex of buildings on the 300-square-mile high desert preserve.
As the takeover entered its third day, authorities had not moved in and had not shut off power to the refuge, Arizona rancher LaVoy Finicum said, adding that he was eager to go home and tend to his cattle.
"If they cut it off, that would be such a crying shame. All the pipes would freeze," he said.
A pickup truck blocked the entrance to the preserve earlier Tuesday, and a man looked out over the snowy grounds from a watchtower.
Ammon Bundy offered few specifics about the group's plan to get the land turned over to local control, but Finicum said the activists would examine the underlying land ownership transactions to begin to "unwind it."
The federal government controls about half of all land in the West, which would make the wholesale transfer of ownership extremely difficult and expensive.
For example, it owns 53 percent of Oregon, 85 percent of Nevada and 66 percent of Utah, according to the Congressional Research Service. Taking over federal public lands in Idaho could cost the state $111 million a year, according to a University of Idaho study.
Randy Eardley, a Bureau of Land Management spokesman, said the group's call for land ownership transfer didn't make sense.
"It is frustrating when I hear the demand that we return the land to the people, because it is in the people's hand — the people own it," Eardley said. "Everybody in the United States owns that land. ... We manage it the best we can for its owners, the people, and whether it's for recreating, for grazing, for energy and mineral development."
Bundy said the group felt it had the support of the local community. But the county sheriff has told the activists to go home, and many locals don't want the group around, fearing they may bring trouble. A community meeting was scheduled for Wednesday.
So far, law enforcement has not taken action against the activists whose rallying cry is the imprisonment of father-and-son ranchers who set fire to federal land.
"These guys are out in the middle of nowhere, and they haven't threatened anybody that I know of," said Jim Glennon, a longtime police commander who now owns the Illinois-based law enforcement training organization Calibre Press. "There's no hurry."
Some observers have complained, suggesting the government's response would have been swifter and more severe had the occupants been Muslim or other minorities.
The group calling itself Citizens for Constitutional Freedom said it wants an inquiry into whether the government is forcing ranchers off their land after Dwight Hammond and his son, Steven, reported back to prison Monday.
The Hammonds, who have distanced themselves from the group, were convicted of arson three years ago and served no more than a year. A judge later ruled the terms fell short of minimum sentences that require them to serve about four more years.
The takeover comes amid a dispute that dates back decades in the West.
In the 1970s, Nevada and other states pushed for local control in what was known as the Sagebrush Rebellion. Supporters wanted more land for cattle grazing, mining and timber harvesting. "

Zebra One = RoughRider56 = Mike Winters = #Creepy

" A woman has sued former Jackson County Sheriff Mike Winters for $382,147, claiming he didn't pay her for years of work she did on his ranch property.
In a lawsuit filed in Jackson County Circuit Court, Lauren Keller said she worked for Winters from June 2010 until September 2014 and claimed he didn't pay wages to her despite her repeated requests.
In a written response to the lawsuit, Winters contends Keller was his live-in girlfriend and any jobs she did "were done as part of her general obligations to the relationship and for being provided room, board and other consideration."
Winters said he and Keller "were involved initially in a friendship that progressed to an intimate sexual relationship and cohabitated together."
He has filed a counterclaim saying Keller owes him $127,500 for room, board, utilities, use of vehicles and other benefits.
Winters and his attorney did not return phone calls seeking comment about the case.
Winters decided not to seek a fourth term as Jackson County sheriff during the November 2014 election. Challenger Corey Falls of the Ashland Police Department received more votes than Winters during the primary and went on to win the election after Winters withdrew from the race.
Keller filed her lawsuit seeking the lost wages in April 2015. Winters filed his counterclaim in July 2015.
Keller said the work she performed on behalf of Winters' ranch properties included filing, bookkeeping, ordering and purchasing supplies, assisting in getting cattle to market, duties related to the production and sale of hay, maintenance work and other duties. Keller said she often worked well over 40 hours per week.
She said Winters made partial payments on her back wages totaling $9,400.
In late December 2015, Keller filed additional requests for Winters to make admissions in the case.
She wants him to say he was never in a monogamous relationship with her from July 2011 to the present, that he spent the night several times at another woman's home between 2010 and 2015, and that he began dating another woman in 2014, traveled with her and introduced her to numerous people as his girlfriend.
Keller also wants Winters to say he was aware she dated several different men, including men she met on www.match.com, an Internet dating service.
Keller claims both she and Winters had www.match.com accounts, with Winters using the name "Roughrider56" for his account.
She also wants Winters to concede that at various times when she asked for her pay, he told her she was "unappreciative" and gave varying responses, including that she would eventually get paid by inheriting ranch property or would be paid when he sold ranch property.
Keller alleged Winters told her in January 2015 if she wanted to get paid and receive expense reimbursements, she would need to sue him.
Winters' lawyer, Stephanie Burke of Hornecker-Cowling,  has yet to file a written response to Keller's request for Winters to make admissions in the case.
The case is scheduled to go to trial in June."

Jackson County Pot. Pot.  Everything Old is New Again

 

  • MARIJUANA

    Jackson County pot rules draw mixed reviews

    Hearing will continue Wednesday, Jan. 13, 2015

 

"The Jackson County Board of Commissioners listened to wildly differing views about proposed marijuana regulations during a public hearing that lasted nearly four hours Wednesday.
Because time ran out before everyone could speak, the hearing will continue at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 13, at the Jackson County Courthouse Auditorium, 10 S. Oakdale Ave., Medford.
After holding its own set of hearings in December, the Jackson County Planning Commission recommended numerous regulations, including a ban on the growing of for-profit recreational marijuana on land zoned for rural residential use.
People would be allowed to grow medical marijuana, but plants would have to be set back from neighboring property lines by at least 250 feet.
County commissioners ultimately will decide what regulations to adopt as they grapple with an expected marijuana gold rush triggered by Oregon voters' 2014 approval of a measure to legalize recreational marijuana. Medical marijuana was already legal in the state.
At Wednesday's hearing, Talent resident Don Skillman urged commissioners to block marijuana production on rural residential land.
"Rural residential zones are where our children are," said Skillman, adding that an armed, violent break-in occurred at a residential marijuana facility near his home.
He also said neighbors need to be protected from the skunk-like odors of maturing marijuana plants. Skillman noted foul-smelling commercial hog operations are not allowed in rural residential zones.
Skillman said objections to the proposed regulations are all based on people's desire to make money.
Rogue River resident Sheryl Parsons said she has to contend with skunk-like odors both outside and inside her rural residential home. She said she fears a marijuana grow near her will affect the quality and quantity of her well water.
Planning commissioners recommended growers be required to have legal water rights to the water they use. Trucking in water would be allowed only if that is not the primary means by which a grower waters marijuana.
Some growers have been accused of illegally using domestic water wells or tapping into creeks and rivers without water rights.
Peter Gross, chief operating officer of Green Valley Wellness LLC, said the proposed regulations are punitive and discriminatory toward the burgeoning marijuana industry — and especially small growers.
"Most of these complaints are based on bad behavior by individuals," he said.
Over-regulating the industry will push law-abiding people out and encourage marginal people to take over who don't care about following laws, Gross said.
Local small-business owner Christy Kunkel of Medford said she plans to apply for a recreational marijuana producer's license from the state. She said buffers from neighboring property lines would make it impossible to grow on small acreage. Kunkel said marijuana is the only financially viable crop for some small parcels, and the crop would keep land in farm use.
Talent area resident Michael Dean said he and his wife spent time looking for property to grow marijuana and bought it. But buffers would make his long, narrow lot unusable, he said.
Under other proposed regulations, people could grow medical and recreational marijuana on land zoned for exclusive farm use and forest use.
An owner, renter or lease holder would have to live on rural residential land where medical marijuana is grown. That means if a neighbor has a problem with a grow, there would be someone on site to address concerns, planning commissioners reasoned.
They recommended against allowing growers to camp out in RVs, camping trailers or tents overnight — a common practice among growers guarding pot plants that become increasingly valuable as they mature.
If a grower is accessing a grow site via a private road, the grower would have to get approval from a majority of neighbors living along the road, according to the recommendations.
Marijuana could be grown on industrial land, but only if marijuana processing was also being done there. Buildings would have to have odor filtration systems, under the proposed regulations.
Whatever regulations the county adopts, they are likely to be challenged in court.
The regulations proposed by the Planning Commission don't cover the four recreational marijuana plants and six medical marijuana plants adults are allowed to grow for their own personal use under state law. "

What is in store for El Chapo next ???

 

 Wonder What...

 

 

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto tweeted today that the infamous drug lord known as “El Chapo” has been captured.

"Mission accomplished: We have him. I want to inform the Mexicans that Joaquin Guzman Loera has been detained," the tweet states, written in Spanish.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A U.S. law enforcement official also confirmed his capture to ABC News.

An official from the Mexico Marines confirms to ABC News that Guzman was captured after a shootout with Mexican Marines in the city of Los Mochis, in the state of Sinaloa, this morning.

Earlier today, The Associated Press reported that five people had been killed and six people were arrested when the Mexican Marines raided a house in Sinaloa. The government has not confirmed a connection between the two.

There have been other raids in Sinaloa in recent months as part of the then-ongoing search for Guzman, the AP said.

  • Cross Creek Trucking hits bad patch after sale

    New owner Integrated Freight Corp. lays off local staff and idles drivers
  • CENTRAL POINT — The Florida transportation company that acquired Cross Creek Trucking earlier year 2011 has laid off most of its local office staff, parked its trucks and idled its drivers.

CENTRAL POINT — The Florida transportation company that acquired Cross Creek Trucking earlier this year has laid off most of its local office staff, parked its trucks and idled its drivers.
Integrated Freight Corp. of Sarasota, a publicly traded company, announced its acquisition of Cross Creek Trucking from Mike DeSimone on April 1, 2011 the beginning of its fiscal year.
After years of relative stability at Cross Creek, signs of uncertainty appeared soon after the transition, said Johnny Hannah, a driver from Eagle Point.
"Parts for trucks weren't there, and they weren't stocking tires," Hannah said.
"Recently, I couldn't get fuel, and the PUC licenses expired on the tractors."
He said he was told by company personnel to enter Oregon via Highway 97 and drive to Central Point via Highway 140 when he made his final trip on Dec. 2 — two days after Integrated Freight reported a $1.4 million fiscal second-quarter loss.
"I would normally have gone out no more than two days later," Hannah said. "But when I parked the truck in the yard, they said don't take it back out."
Telephone calls and emails seeking comment from Integrated Freight Chief Executive Officer Paul Henley were not returned.
According to filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Integrated Freight Corp. gave former owner Mike DeSimone 2.5 million shares of common stock, a promissory note of $4 million and options for an additional 2.5 million share. On April 1, Integrated Freight shares traded for 40 cents. In the past week, the per-share price has been 5 to 7 cents. It is unclear whether DeSimone sold his shares or exercised the option for additional shares.
Cross Creek Trucking had about 150 employees, including a staff of about 30 at its terminal on Blackwell Road off of Interstate 5, as well as 115 late-model tractors, 170 refrigerated trailers and 30 dry trailers.
DeSimone declined to comment on the matter.
In a September SEC filing, Integrated Freight reported $795,000 in transaction costs related to Cross Creek Trucking.
Through the fiscal second quarter, which ended Sept. 30, Integrated Freight reported a six-month loss of $4.3 million. The Florida company reported revenue of $24.8 million between April 1 and Sept. 30, including $11.8 million during the fiscal second quarter.
The company attributed a $7 million second-quarter jump in revenue — from $4.8 million to $11.8 million — to Cross Creek Trucking.
It also reported it had no cash nor cash equivalents, but total liabilities and stockholders' deficit of $19.1 million.
"I don't expect to hear from them," Hannah said. "When Mike ran the company, he always took care of everything. It's been kind of scary driving and not knowing if you'd get paid of not. I put in for my vacation pay and was told they are not doing vacation pay this year. We usually get two of those a year."
During DeSimone's ownership Cross Creek Trucking catered to many small agricultural producers along its bread-and-butter Interstate 5 route. Many of growers were apparently jettisoned by the new ownership because they didn't fit into a nationwide matrix that called for increased east-west travel.
There were indications Integrated Freight was seeking new financing by the end of the week.
Jim Straney, a veteran driver with Cross Creek who lives in Eugene, said his rig is parked at his house because of fuel issues.
"We were told they were trying to get a $5 million loan," Straney said. "There were a lot of people trying to make this work for them."
He said he got his last paycheck on Dec. 2 and got his vacation pay in early enough to get that check as well.
"We were told big things would happen," Straney said. "Well, they did. They took a good solid company with good customers that the former owner and employees worked hard to get. Everyone — drivers, dock people, mechanics and office personnel — are sitting at home."

Josh Gibson. The Whole Long Story on County Time.

 

 It sounds weird is right.

Didn't Greg Lemhouse say he was resigning to spend family time too? And the wives stay

 

 

  • JACKSON COUNTY

    Assessor won't say if public urination incident played role in resignation

  - -

 

 

Former Jackson County Assessor Josh Gibson said he resigned the position Dec. 31 to spend more time with his children and because of health issues. He refused to say whether an incident last summer in which he was seen urinating in public during a golf outing played a role.
"As a public servant of the people, family and personal relationships frequently can take a back seat to being responsive to the needs of the public and the duties of a public office," he wrote in his resignation letter, submitted to the county Nov. 12.
"At this point in my life, I believe that it is time to refocus my attention onto my children and personal life. Remaining as County Assessor would not permit me to focus my attention on those who need it to the extent they deserve."

When asked by the Mail Tribune whether the golfing incident also played a role in his decision,

 Gibson refused to comment.

Gibson said he went golfing with several other assessor and appraisal professionals from around the state during the Oregon State Association of County Assessors 2015 Summer Conference, held Aug. 10-13 in Hood River. The group was composed of men and one woman, Jo Wright, who currently works as the chief deputy assessor for Jackson County.
Gibson acknowledged he urinated on the golf course, but denied rumors that he exposed himself.
"I did urinate in the bushes away from the group," he said in an email. "I will emphatically deny that anyone was exposed to my genitalia, but the group could probably tell that I was urinating."
Gibson said there were no bathrooms around, and in hindsight he should have waited or taken the golf cart somewhere to find a restroom.
Wright declined to comment about the incident or Gibson's resignation.
In an email to the Mail Tribune, Gibson said he continued to work at full capacity until Nov. 18, and then went in for surgery Nov. 19. As of late December, he said, he was still not cleared to return to work by his physician.
Gibson continued to collect his full annual salary of $99,674 through December, according to documents provided by the county after a public records request by the Mail Tribune.
Gibson said in an email that he continued to track his emails and phone messages while he was out, and also to work on a statewide project to revamp the appraiser education system.
Jackson County Commissioner Doug Breidenthal said he doesn't believe Gibson was pressured to resign because of the golf course incident.
"I encouraged Josh not to resign," Breidenthal said. "Josh is a good man who has done a great service to the people of Jackson County. ... It was unfortunate to see him resign the way he did. Sometimes people make mistakes. I'm not privileged to all his dealings, and why he chose to resign is entirely up to him. I've always had a lot of respect for Josh. It's not easy being under scrutiny all the time. The burden wears on people in public office."
Breidenthal, who is facing an ethics complaint and scrutiny of his travel spending, said doing the job of an elected official takes time away from family.
Following Gibson's resignation, Wright was tasked with performing the duties of the county assessor.
The assessor's office has faced turmoil in the past.
In 2011, longtime assessor Dan Ross abruptly resigned, citing a hostile work environment.
Jackson County Administrator Danny Jordan said the county Budget Committee allocated funding for an additional manager in the assessor's office who could perform employee supervision and human resources functions.
Wright filled that post and helped smooth out personal relations between employees in the Assessor's Office, according to workers there.
She keeps the staff on track with meetings and training, said David Arrasmith, lead appraiser for the Assessor's Office.
Arrasmith is one of several county employees who has filed to run for assessor in the May election. Wright is not seeking the office.
Arrasmith said the office has been running smoothly and performing its work despite Gibson's absence and the temporary lack of an assessor.
"The assessor can come and go and the office won't lose a step," he said. "The office is able to flow from one assessor to another assessor — or operate without an assessor."

 

 

Arrasmith said Wright and Gibson both played a role in improving the Assessor's Office. He said employees were always getting their work done, but didn't always get along.
"The office was in disarray," Arrasmith said. "Now we respect each other and work with each other. The internal strife has faded away. With Josh walking away, we're still operating like we were when he was here."
Jackson County Lead Appraiser Angela Stuhr, who also has filed to run for assessor, said there were feelings of uncertainty as the office transitioned from Ross to Gibson.
She said the office now is very cohesive.
"Jo was instrumental in the changes," Stuhr said. "She worked with every staff member to determine their strengths and to develop the best plans for moving forward with our work. Josh had a lot to do with that, too. He had good ideas. He worked hard. He made some mistakes along the way, but not all organizational change goes smoothly."
Gibson said the "office was a chaotic mess when I inherited it."
Under his leadership, Gibson said, the office became more empathetic toward the citizens of the county, treating them with respect, listening to their stories and doing what it could to help them within the constraints of the law.
He said he worked at the state level to make tax laws more fair.
"I resigned because it was time for me to step aside," Gibson said in an email. "I did what I intended to do and that was to make this office more in tune with the public we serve."
While Breidenthal has expressed concern about the Assessor's Office being temporarily in the hands of a non-elected staff person, he said he is not questioning the skills or expertise of Wright or other staff members, who he said are doing "amazing work."
"I think Jo has done an incredible job bringing that office together," Breidenthal said. "She has held the office together in trying times. Her work has been exemplary."

  • CONTINUING COVERAGE: COMMUNITY JUSTICE DIRECTOR ARREST

    Informant's meth tip led to Community Justice director's arrest

 

  - - -

 

An informant told police Jackson County Community Justice Director Shane Levi Hagey had been buying methamphetamine for at least a year before his arrest on Dec. 30, according to court documents.

The tip led Medford police to open an investigation against Hagey, which culminated with a sting in which the informant allegedly sold 1.75 grams of methamphetamine to Hagey for

-

 

 

$60 at a Purple Parrot outlet in the Medford Center. At about 9 p.m., police moved in to arrest Hagey, who allegedly dropped the baggie of meth onto the ground, according to a search warrant affidavit filed with Jackson County Circuit Court.

Hagey, 48, faces a felony charge of methamphetamine possession and a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest. He was cited and released. Police took Hagey's badge, his Samsung smartphone and another cellphone they found in Hagey's right sock.
An hour and a half later, and armed with a search warrant, police seized multiple guns and methamphetamine they allegedly found at Hagey's home in the 200 block of Dunthorpe Drive, Medford. A search warrant return filed by Oregon State Police says officers found meth paraphernalia and two plastic baggies of a crystal substance that tested positive for meth. Police also took cellphones, tablets, a laptop and ammunition.
Among the guns seized were two Derringers, a Smith & Wesson .40-caliber handgun, a 7.65-millimeter Walther handgun, a Browning Buck Mark pistol, a 9 mm Glock 17 and a Remington 870 12-gauge shotgun, the return shows.
From Hagey's black 2010 Dodge Challenger, police took a Kahr Arms 9 mm pistol, the return shows.
From Hagey's office, police seized miscellaneous papers, a computer tower, a black bag with multiple cellphones, an HP laptop, four smartphones and a thumb drive, according to the return.
Jackson County Administrator Danny Jordan placed Hagey on paid administrative leave on Dec. 31 (Corrected), according to county records obtained by the Mail Tribune. Hagey's hourly wage is $64.91, according to the document.
As director of Community Justice, Hagey oversees adult probation and parole, juvenile probation, the Juvenile Detention facility and the Community Justice Transition Center in Talent.
Medford police began investigating Hagey on Dec. 23 after an informant claimed Hagey had been buying small amounts of meth from the informant at locations around Medford, including a Flamingo's, Purple Parrot and Shari's. The informant assisted police in exchange for consideration on pending felony charges, according to the search warrant affidavit.
The informant's phone had a contact of "Shane H" with a phone number matching the cell number Medford officers had for Hagey. The informant showed police a Dec. 21 text message from Hagey requesting the informant meet him at Flamingo's on Roberts Road, where the informant allegedly sold him 1.75 grams of meth for $60.
Police allegedly verified the informant's claim by checking video surveillance at the Flamingo's, according to the affidavit.
The informant met with Hagey again on Dec. 24 at the Medford Shari's to allegedly sell him another 1.75 grams of meth, according to the affidavit.
The informant sent Hagey a text on Dec. 30 asking whether he needed anything, and Hagey replied he wanted to meet later that day. Medford officers provided the informant with 1.75 grams of meth that was slated to be destroyed. The informant allegedly sold the meth to Hagey at 9 p.m. at the Purple Parrot, where Hagey was arrested.

Shane Hagey & Jason Hagey.  Arrest & Bro Arrest

 

  " You are the peg upon which your family's honor hangs."

 

 

 

  • ARREST

    Community Justice director's brother also charged with drug crime

 

 

The brother of a Jackson County official arrested for alleged methamphetamine possession last month has since been arrested on the same charge.
Jail records show 45-year-old Jayson Robert Hagey — brother of Jackson County Community Justice director Shane Hagey, according to Medford Area Drug & Gang Enforcement officials — was lodged in the Jackson County Jail Wednesday afternoon on a charge of methamphetamine possession and two unrelated failure to appear charges. He is no longer listed in the jail.
An Oregon State Police search warrant, served Dec. 31 at a home in the 200 block of Dunthorpe Drive, says a "sunglasses case with meth(amphetamine) paraphernalia" was found by police in an "open drawer in 'Jason's' (sic) room."
The Dunthorpe Drive home, listed as Jayson Hagey's address on jail booking logs, is the same address as Shane Hagey, who has been on paid administrative leave since a Dec. 31 arrest stemming from his own methamphetamine possession charge. Oregon State Police and Medford Area Drug & Gang Enforcement arrested him Dec. 30 at the Medford Center Purple Parrot on charges of methamphetamine possession and resisting arrest.
Court documents show an informant told police Shane Hagey had been buying methamphetamine for at least a year before the arrest. OSP and MADGE officers coordinated with the informant and set up a sting where the informant allegedly sold 1.75 grams of methamphetamine to Hagey for $60 at the Purple Parrot. Hagey was cited and released at about 9 p.m.
An hour and a half later, officers served a search warrant at the Dunthorpe Drive home, where they seized guns, drugs, and two plastic baggies of a crystal substance that tested positive for methamphetamine.
"When we were servicing the warrant we found stuff leading us to believe that the trace amount of methamphetamine was his brother’s," said Lt. Kevin Walruff of MADGE.
Shane Hagey was hired by Jackson County in March 2005 and stepped into the community justice director post in December 2006, according to county records.
The Jackson County District Attorney's Office is still reviewing the case. If formal charges are pursued, District Attorney Beth Heckert has said, the case might be handed off to another agency, such as the state "

  • ETHICS COMPLAINT

    Breidenthal questions Jackson County auditor's independence

    Auditor says it was his choice to file ethics complaint

 Jackson County Commissioner Doug Breidenthal

 said he believes the county's auditor is following orders from County Administrator Danny Jordan regarding an ethics complaint, but the auditor maintains he acted independently in filing the complaint against Breidenthal.

County Auditor Eric Spivak filed a complaint in October 2015 with the Oregon Government Ethics Commission, citing his concerns about a campaign account Breidenthal used to help win the vice president seat on the National Association of Counties' Western Interstate Region.
The ethics commission voted Friday to conduct a full investigation, saying its preliminary review indicates Breidenthal may have violated laws about receiving gifts, using an official position for financial gain and proper reporting of payments to cover trip expenses.
Breidenthal said he believes Jordan may have directed Spivak to file the complaint, then directed Spivak to issue a statement this week asserting he made the decision to file the complaint independently.
"After three years of working here, I've learned no one does anything without Danny's permission," said Breidenthal, who took office in January 2013. "That's even the auditor. I can't even speak to a (county) department head without that person having to report back to the administrator that they talked to me and the gist of the conversation."
Breidenthal raised questions about the statement Spivak released this week saying he made the choice himself to file the ethics complaint. The statement also said Spivak discussed his decision with Jordan in a meeting and Jordan agreed with and supported Spivak's decision.
Spivak's statement said the county's attorney researched laws that Breidenthal may have violated — countering a statement by Breidenthal that Jordan failed to research and understand laws before directing staff to file the complaint.
Breidenthal questioned why Spivak was defending Jordan.
"It has the appearance that he's almost directed to do so," Breidenthal said. "Why would someone defend Danny so hard? It doesn't make sense."
Spivak reaffirmed on Wednesday he made the decision to file the ethics complaint and then release a statement about the issue on his own.
"I did it because I felt the independence of the auditor position and auditor profession was being questioned," Spivak said.
He added, "I was not directed to file the ethics complaint. I felt that it was my responsibility to hold him (Breidenthal) accountable. ... If I didn't think it was the right thing to do, I wouldn't have put him and his family through it."
Spivak said Breidenthal has no evidence that Jordan was giving orders about filing an ethics complaint.
"I live in a world of facts and figures," Spivak said. "He (Breidenthal) has no facts or evidence to support his speculation."
Spivak said anyone can file an ethics complaint. Jordan could have done so himself and didn't need an auditor to file the complaint, Spivak said.
The full ethics commission investigation of Breidenthal will take up to 180 days.
Breidenthal said he is looking forward to the results of the investigation because he believes the ethics commission will offer clarity and guidance for local officials who campaign to win seats with organizations that represent local interests at the national level.
"I am very ecstatic they decided to proceed the way they did," he said of the ethics commission's decision to investigate the case. "The last thing I want is for the appearance this is being swept under the rug."
Breidenthal reiterated that he believes his position with the National Association of Counties' Western Interstate Region benefits local residents by giving Jackson County a voice at the national level. "

Hare says he won't run again for Josephine commissioner

 

Embattled Josephine County Commissioner Simon Hare has confirmed he will not seek a third term in 2018 — assuming he survives a recall effort now underway.
Expanding on comments he made to KOBI-TV, Hare said he never intended to serve more than one term.
“I have always felt that public office should not be a career,” he told the Daily Courier Friday.
Hare has made comments to that effect during public meetings at the courthouse. On Friday, he re-asserted those claims.
“I will not seek another term,” he said. “What’s different this time is that I’ve recycled all my signs.”
“It gives me energy to know that I won’t be here for much longer,” he said in the KOBI interview. “I will try to get as much done in the time provided and leave it up to someone else to take over this board and this position.”
The commissioner said that the only reason he sought a second term, which he’s currently serving and ends in 2018, was because he felt there was unfinished business from his first.
Hare is also in the midst of a recall effort led by Mark Kelsey, a local trucker and Facebook moderator who’s running for Position 2 on the Board of Commissioners. Keith Heck currently holds that position on the board.
Kelsey initiated the recall process after Hare’s DUII arrest last month in Eugene. The commissioner was in town for a meeting of the Association of O&C Counties, a collective of county officials who discuss timber and land-use policy.
It was Hare’s third public misstep involving alcohol in as many years. In 2013, he was nearly charged with filing a false report after he claimed his car was stolen, only to be recovered a few blocks from his house. And in 2014, he was criticized over a cellphone prank that went wrong.
Kelsey told the Daily Courier he hasn’t counted the signatures that have come in so far. He has until March 28 to gather 5,094 from the county’s registered voters.
“We’re doing good,” he said. "

    Man pleads guilty in meth, heroin case

 

 

A California man who admitted Thursday to trafficking 23 pounds of methamphetamine and heroin near Central Point last year faces between five and 40 years in federal prison.
Miguel Angel Reyna-Ramos, 37, of Tulare, Calif., pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Eugene Thursday to a count of possession with intent to distribute more than 50 grams of a mixture and substance containing methamphetamine.
According to court documents, Reyna-Ramos was found to be in possession of just under 19 pounds of methamphetamine and over 4 pounds of heroin during a traffic stop on May 18, at mile marker 35 near Central Point. Reyna-Ramos did not have an Oregon driver's license and presented an expired Oregon ID card that the trooper could not authenticate during the traffic stop. Police said Reyna-Ramos was driving a Mercury Mountaineer SUV that did not belong to him. When Reyna-Ramos declined consent to search the car, Oregon State Police used a narcotics detection dog, which found the drugs in the vehicle's luggage area.
Sentencing guidelines in the charge indicate a minimum sentence of five years and maximum of 40 years in prison on the charge. A sentencing hearing is scheduled for May 5 in Eugene.
According to Mail Tribune archives, investigators found inside the vehicle Western Union money order receipts, which Rayna-Ramos said had been paid on behalf of a Mexican drug trafficking organization. Reyna-Ramos told federal investigators that he had been paid $200 to $300 to drive cars from the Northwest to his home in Tulare before, and expected to be paid about $1,000 to drive the SUV to Washington. He told agents that the transport was directed by a boss in Mexico, and Reyna-Ramos said he was instructed through a third party to pick up the SUV from a motel parking lot in Ontario, Calif. and drive the SUV to Washington, where it would be dropped off in Tacoma.

TALENT — Mountain View Paving was fined $35,400 by Jackson County officials Thursday for operating its asphalt batch plant 27 days without land-use approval and for violating county floodplain and building codes.
A hearings officer will consider the citation and fines at 9 a.m. Feb. 16, in the county auditorium, said Development Services Director Kelly Madding.
“We believe we have evidence showing they operated for 27 days from Sept. 24 to Oct. 20,” said Madding. “(The hearings officer) has the responsibility to hear the case, make a ruling and assess a fine, if the owners are found guilty. He can reduce the amounts of the fines.”
Mountain View Paving has battled environmental group Rogue Advocates and others over its right to operate at the site since 2011. Noise, dust and odor arising from the plant led to complaints from Talent residents. Much of the fight centered on whether the plant was a “grandfathered” operation, an argument ultimately denied by county and state authorities.
Jackson County issued a citation Sept. 24, warning the firm against continued operations following a county ruling denying land-use approval. But a stay issued by Oregon’s Land Use Board of Appeals Oct. 20 meant the fines could not be imposed any longer until LUBA issued a ruling on Mountain View's appeal of the county's decision.
Operation of the plant without land-use approval is subject to a maximum fine of $200 per day, for a total of $5,400. Other fines, at $10,000 each, included development in the floodplain without a floodplain permit, lack of a structural building permit for the firm’s office and lack of an electrical permit for the office.
On Jan. 11, LUBA issued a ruling upholding the county’s decision, its fourth decision in the case.
Asphalt production at the site apparently stopped Jan. 11. There was no activity at the plant Wednesday other than three people in the firm’s office. One of those, owner Paul Meyer, declined to comment to a reporter.
A county code enforcement officer reported no activity Tuesday, said Madding. The officer said residents of Mountain View Estates across Bear Creek from the plant had not observed asphalt production since Jan. 11, she said.
“There is no movement over there at all and there hasn’t been for the last couple weeks,” said Lois Schmidt, who lives in Mountain View Estates. “There’s nothing going on over there right now.”
Oregon’s Department of Environmental Quality advised the firm in mid-October it would consider action if the plant operated past Oct. 31. But after the LUBA stay, DEQ said it wouldn’t proceed pending a final decision, at which time it would re-evaluate.
LUBA issued its decision Jan. 11, a week ahead of the deadline for the determination.
“Hopefully by early next week we’ll be able to know where we are headed,” said Claudia Davis, DEQ Western Region air quality manager. “We need to look at the document. I’ll be taking it to our Office of Enforcement to find out how to proceed.”

Mountain View Paving attorneys Hillary Zamudio and Dan O’Connor declined to comment on the LUBA ruling. Zamudio filed the latest appeal with LUBA, and O’Connor has represented the firm the last four years. "

Hagey Boys Meth Users & Druggies. Justice Director.

 A Jackson County grand jury on Friday indicted Community Justice Director Shane Levi Hagey on a charge of methamphetamine possession

 

 

 The Hagey Boys

 

 

 

Hagey, 48, of Medford, was arrested Dec. 30, 2016 by Medford police at a Purple Parrot on charges of meth possession and resisting arrest.
Jackson County District Attorney Beth Heckert, who will be the prosecutor in Hagey's case, said she will not pursue the resisting arrest charge.
“After the reviewing the case, I didn’t feel there was enough to go forward with the charge at this time,” Heckert said.
Heckert said she considered sending the case out of the county for prosecution, but she determined that the Community Justice Department is separate from the D.A.'s Office, and Heckert doesn't supervise anyone in Hagey's department.
"Parole and probation is totally separate from my department," Heckert said.
Heckert said a conflict could occur in Jackson County if Hagey gets convicted, because Hagey's department oversees parole and probation.
“If he was to get convicted, probably another agency would have to supervise him," Heckert said. "But we’re not there yet.”
Hagey was placed on paid administrative leave Dec. 31, as soon as county officials became aware of the arrest.
Heckert said she believes Hagey is still on paid administrative leave. A call to Jackson County Counsel Joel Benton to verify Hagey's employment status was not immediately returned.
Hagey's brother Jayson Robert Hagey, who lives with Shane Hagey in the 200 block of Dunthorpe Drive, was arrested on a methamphetamine possession charge Jan. 13. Heckert said the alleged crimes took place in separate places. Jayson Hagey's case is still under review by the D.A.'s office.
"It'll be filed separately if it gets filed," Heckert said. "It occurred in a different location, so it's a separate case."
No charges have been filed against Jayson Hagey yet, but a sunglasses case with meth paraphernalia was allegedly found in his bedroom by police, according to returns from an Oregon State Police search warrant served Dec. 30 on the Hagey residence.
Shane Hagey is scheduled to be arraigned Jan. 29 in Jackson County Circuit Court."

    “Have fun, get some training, and learn some new skills.”
    That was the mission of a search tactics training session led by Jackson County Search and Rescue (JCSAR) personnel in conjunction with the city of Ashland Fire & Rescue’s Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Saturday, Jan. 23 in Lithia Park.
    Thirty-four CERT volunteers were given the opportunity to practice for Search & Rescue operations under the guidance of seasoned JCSAR leaders.
    “It’s a great opportunity to network, learn and practice for actual missions,” according to CERT Program Coordinator Terri Eubanks.
    The goal was to learn how Search and Rescue operates, the logistics of organizing a search, spotting clues, understanding how to conduct various types of searches, including a grid searches, the importance of how to handle evidence, and more.
    After an hour-long classroom and Power Point presentation at Ashland Fire Station No. 1, CERT volunteers headed to Lithia Park and divided into small teams.
    After having been given a brief fictitious scenario of a missing person, CERT volunteers combed through a soggy and somewhat chilly Lithia Park for two hours in search of clues which had been planted earlier by JCSAR team leaders: a crumpled bandana under a bush, a necklace hanging in a tree, a package of Kleenex in the grass, and more.
    Demonstrating teamwork, focus and dedication to the purpose at hand , as well as a commitment to serving our community, JCSAR team leader, Mark Mihaljevich, had high praise for the CERT volunteers.
    “All of us at Jackson County SAR are grateful for and impressed by you and your group," Mihaljevich said. "The training could not have gone any better.”

DA won't offer felony discharge to justice director Shane Hagey

Jackson County Community Justice director faces meth charge

 

 

Jackson County District Attorney Beth Heckert said she won't offer a plea agreement to Jackson County Community Justice Director Shane Levi Hagey that would result in a felony for methamphetamine possession being removed from his record if he pleads guilty.
Hagey, 48, was arrested Dec. 30 after allegedly buying methamphetamine from an informant at a Purple Parrot outlet in Medford during an investigation by Medford police.
Hagey pleaded not guilty to a charge of meth possession during an arraignment hearing today in Jackson County Circuit Court. He has a pre-trial conference hearing scheduled for Feb. 29.
Hagey and his defense attorney, Carl Caplan, declined to comment following the arraignment.
People accused of felony possession of methamphetamine or heroin are often offered a chance to complete drug treatment, community service and probation. Conditions of probation often require that defendants abstain from drug use and submit to drug testing. If they successfully complete the terms, they can secure a conditional discharge and keep a felony conviction off their records.
Heckert said Friday she will make a plea offer to Hagey, but the offer will not include an opportunity for conditional discharge.
"Because of his position in the community, I don't think it's appropriate," Heckert said.
As director of Community Justice, Hagey oversees adult probation and parole, juvenile probation, the juvenile detention facility and the Community Justice Transition Center.
Hagey was placed on paid administrative leave Dec. 31.
Medford police began investigating Hagey after an informant claimed Hagey had been buying small amounts of meth from the informant at various Medford locations. The informant assisted police in exchange for consideration on pending felony charges, according to a search warrant affidavit.
Hagey's brother, 45-year-old Jayson Robert Hagey, was arrested this month on a meth possession charge and two unrelated charges for failing to appear in court.
The two brothers share the same Dunthorpe Drive address in Medford.
Jayson Hagey has a history of violating probation, failing to appear in court and having warrants issued for his arrest, court records show.
Jackson County Circuit Judge Timothy Barnack heard Shane Hagey's not-guilty plea today in court during a routine arraignment hearing, but said he will have nothing further to do with Shane Hagey's methamphetamine possession case. Barnack said he has asked to be taken off the case.
"In my opinion, it's a conflict," Barnack said.
Barnack said all of Jackson County's Circuit Court judges will have to decide for themselves whether presiding over Shane Hagey's case would create a conflict of interest or the appearance of a conflict of interest, since Hagey is a county employee working in community justice.
Heckert said if no Jackson County judges will take the case, an out-of-county current or retired judge could be brought here to handle it.
Meanwhile, Barnack barred a Mail Tribune photographer from taking photos during today's morning court session when Shane Hagey appeared along with dozens of other defendants in assorted unrelated cases.
Barnack said he is distracted by the clicking noises made by cameras. He said he is not bothered by video cameras because they are quiet.
He said he did not exclude the newspaper photographer in order to shield Shane Hagey from publicity.
"It has flat-out zero to do with Shane Hagey," Barnack said. "It's distracting to the courtroom process and to me. As a judge, I have an obligation to keep decorum in the courtroom."
The Mail Tribune had submitted a court permission form to shoot photographs during Shane Hagey's arraignment. The media request was approved by Jackson County Circuit Judge Lorenzo Mejia.
The KOBI television station also submitted a media request to cover Shane Hagey's case that was approved by Jackson County Circuit Judge David Hoppe, but the station didn't send a camera crew to Friday's arraignment, according to court records and a station employee.
Photography and filming in court by the media is typically barred during sex abuse cases and cases involving children, but is usually approved otherwise."

Team Ragsdale. Won't Ever Be the Same. RIP

 

 

 About 50 search and rescue workers and more than 100 runners continued their search Saturday morning for distance runner Todd Ragsdale, 46, of Talent, who disappeared Thursday in the Ashland watershed after going for a run wearing a light jacket and running shorts.  Mail Tribune / Jamie Lusch

 

 

ASHLAND — A medical examiner report on the cause of death for distance runner Todd Ragsdale is expected Monday.
Searchers found the 46-year-old Talent resident's body near Ashland Creek Saturday afternoon a quarter-mile from the Granite Street reservoir.
Even though searchers had combed the area, they originally missed Ragsdale in the densely vegetated terrain between the reservoir and swimming ponds, Jackson County Sheriff's Sgt. Shawn Richards said.
"We had searched that area," Richards said Sunday. "It was very difficult to see through the brush, and steep."
Richards declined to elaborate on a possible scenario or cause of death until the medical examiner's report. He added there was no indication that Ragsdale may have fallen.
Ragsdale left his house around 10:30 a.m. for what he said was a light run or hike, deputies said. His Honda Element was found Thursday afternoon in a parking area above Lithia Park and he was reported to Ashland police as missing at 3:30 p.m.
A Go Fund Me account has been set up to assist Ragsdale's wife and family.
"Even though this has been an absolutely tragic result, there was a great outpouring of people willing to give and go look, running community offering their support," Richards said.

Statement From the Robert Lavoy Finicum Family

 LaVoy Finicum Daughter_newsfoxesDOTcom

 

 

  - --

 

STATEMENT FROM THE LAVOY FINICUM FAMILY


We know that there are always at least two sides to every story. We also know and recognize that the FBI and law enforcement agencies involved will do everything in their power to make it appear as if the needless death of our husband, father, grandfather, brother and son, LaVoy Finicum, was justified.

.
Like almost everyone else, we were not there, so we don’t know exactly what happened. Like most others, we have no choice but to rely on other sources of information. One of those sources of information is the account of Victoria Sharp. Another piece of information is the video recently released by the FBI, along with the FBI’s chosen narrative of what happened. In response to this information, we would like to make a few observations.

.
The first observation is that from what we understand, the occupation was on track toward a peaceful resolution. LaVoy and those he was with were en route to a public meeting in an adjoining county when they were stopped in something far different than a “routine traffic stop,” as has been portrayed by the media. Unfortunately, the powers that be were not interested in being patient enough for the occupation to come to a peaceful end. Some had called for LaVoy and those he was with to simply be gunned down, just as he was, with no due process. Oregon Governor, Kate Brown, was putting pressure on the FBI to end it sooner rather than later. The Harney County Sheriff’s Department working in conjunction with the FBI tried to do everything they could to emphasize how disruptive the occupation was to the local community, when in reality it appears to have been their own reaction that was causing most of the disruption. And it was the FBI that chose to escalate the situation to force a confrontation, and violent ending.

.
With respect to the actual facts and circumstances surrounding LaVoy’s death, the video really speaks for itself. People will interpret it according to their own views. As the FBI’s own narrative stated, LaVoy was not wielding a firearm or any other weapon when he was killed. His hands were obviously in the air. Knowing LaVoy, it is our view that he was moving away from the vehicle in an attempt to draw any hostility or violence away from the others. Unfortunately, we don’t know what he was saying, and what was being said to him. He appears to have been gesturing, or trying to keep his balance while moving in the deep snow. Although he may have been animated, he does not appear to have been threatening or posing any real threat or danger to anyone. The FBI claims that LaVoy had a loaded firearm in an inside pocket of his coat.

 

After rereviewing the extended video, at this point we are not accepting at face value the FBI’s statement that LaVoy was actually armed. But even if he was, as far as we can see, that firearm posed no more danger to anyone than it would have if he had stayed in the vehicle with his hands on the steering wheel. Contrary to what has been stated by some sources, LaVoy was not “charging” anyone. He appears to have been shot in the back, with his hands in the air.

 

It is our understanding that according to applicable law, the use of deadly force is justified only if there is a genuine threat of death or serious bodily injury. It is our understanding and position that deadly force should only be used as a last resort. In LaVoy’s case it appears that they were determined to go straight to the last resort. It is our understanding that the U.S. Supreme Court and Ninth Circuit Court of appeals have ruled as follows:

 

“The reasonableness of [officers’] actions depends both on whether the officers
were in danger at the precise moment that they used force and on whether [the
officers’] own reckless or deliberate conduct during the seizure unreasonably
created the need to use such force.”
“[W]here an officer intentionally or recklessly provokes a violent confrontation . . .
he may be held liable for his otherwise defensive use of deadly force.” Although
officers may claim self-defense, they may still be liable for using excessive force
if their reckless and unconstitutional actions create the need to use excessive
force.

It is our understanding that in addition to shooting LaVoy multiple times, after he was left lying harmlessly on the ground the officers also fired upon his truck and the passengers in it, putting them all at risk, despite the fact that they were posing no threat to anyone. The video clearly shows one of the windows being blown out. It has been gut-wrenching for our family to view the video of LaVoy being shot, and then left to lie in the snow while a whole army of so-called “public servants” terrorized the others. We can only hope their families never have to watch such a thing. We will be interested to inspect the vehicle. We will also be interested to see the autopsy report.

 

At this point we will await the outcome of any investigation, but based on the information currently available to us, we do not believe that LaVoy’s shooting death was justified. We likewise can’t see any justification for the force and risk of serious injury or death that was exerted against the others in the truck, who posed no threat.

 

We know that under such circumstances law enforcement typically makes every attempt to cast such shooting victims in the worst possible light. In that regard, we also want to observe and emphasize that LaVoy had a squeaky clean record, and had never had so much as a speeding ticket. In addition to raising his own eleven children, he had also been entrusted with the care of at least 50 foster children over the course of approximately 10 years.
On January 7, 2016, LaVoy issued an official statement from the Malheur Wildlife Refuge. Among other things, the statement said:

 

“We want to clarify that we share any and all concerns about safety for everyone
involved, including ourselves, our families, the public, and law enforcement
officers. All lives are important to us. Ultimately, we want everyone involved
to be able to return safely to their homes and families.

 

We are deeply troubled and saddened that our governments do not share the same concern for human life. We are deeply troubled that our governments would view whatever was happening at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge to be worth spilling blood over. We are deeply troubled and saddened that our governments have come to place so little value on life, liberty, property and pursuit of happiness.

 

We love LaVoy as our husband, father, grandfather, brother and son. He was a hero to us. We believe he died as a patriotic martyr. Regardless of any and all differing opinions, we know that he died standing for a cause HE believed in.

 

LaVoy’s funeral will be held in Kanab, Utah on Friday, February 5, 2016.

 

We take comfort in our faith and our belief that LaVoy is now in a better place. May our dear Lord bless and receive him into that realm. We sincerely appreciate all the thoughts and prayers that have been sent our way. We pray for those who chose to
take LaVoy’s life. We desire justice and genuine accountability for what happened, but we pray for them.

 

And finally, we thank God for this country and what it is supposed to stand for. We pray for this country, and that God will please bless, help and forgive us all. "

Mike Winters. Cohort. For the Record.

 

 Posted Dec. 13, 2002 at 2:00 AM
Updated Dec 17, 2010 at 6:41 PM


Sheriff-elect Mike Winters is preparing to take office Jan. 6, 2002 but is keeping quiet about who will join him.
Winters has yet to announce who will hold management-level positions within the Jackson County Sheriff's Department, leaving some supervisors anxious about their status in January. The new sheriff has the authority to re-appoint or terminate 23 supervisors ' from sergeants up to the department's captain.
Recently honored as the Oregon Jail Manager of the Year, Lt. Jim Warren does not know if he will have a job after the holidays.
Well, (Winters) hasn't talked to any of the supervisors here, and it's making a lot of people very, very nervous, Warren said.
Warren's award ' bestowed last week ' is the second in three years for the jail's commander. He also serves as president of the Oregon Jail Managers' Association and has commanded the Jackson County Jail since 1998.
If it's in the cards for (Warren) to be dumped, I think it would be a serious mistake, said Sheriff Robert Kennedy, adding that perhaps more than any manager, Warren has sought cost-saving measures for the county.
A former Oregon State Police trooper, Winters brings no corrections experience to the sheriff's office.
Winters said he could not comment Wednesday on who would have jobs at the sheriff's department after he took over. He has a reason for keeping his management choices a secret, he said, but would not elaborate.
Sheriff's Capt. Ed Mayer, who ran against Winters in the November election, said he did not know what his plans would be after the first of the year.
Other managers, such as Sgt. John Pruett, aren't too worried about losing their jobs but acknowledge that the change in command is on everyone's mind.
Everybody's a little curious, Pruett said.
Winters said he will address employees' questions in a series of department meetings scheduled for the second week in January after he takes office.
Winters said he had planned on attending an orientation for new sheriffs offered in Hood River this week through the Oregon State Sheriff's Association. However, he had planned on attending local meetings throughout the week, including a county budget session today.
I really wanted to attend that class, but I don't want to jump ship on my county, Winters said.
Winters' election is the first administrative shakeup at the sheriff's department since C.W. Smith took office in 1983. Kennedy, who served as Smith's captain, has held the office since 1994"

Crystal City mayor, city manager, councilmen among those arrested in public corruption case

- - -

 

CRYSTAL CITY — Federal agents arrested the Crystal City mayor, city manager, two council members and a former council member in early morning raids Thursday on bribery charges connected to a gambling venture and unnamed contractors doing business with the city.

Federal officials said they arrested City Manager James Jonas, who also is a San Antonio lawyer, Mayor Ricardo Lopez and city councilmen Roel Mata, Rogelio Mata and Gilbert Urrabazo, the former councilman. Businessman Ngoc Tri Nguyen of Keller was also arrested.

FBI agents were seen entering the city hall in Crystal City, located about 120 miles southwest of San Antonio near the Mexican border,  this morning and were removing boxes of documents.

 

Officials said city hall in Crystal City would not be open to the public on Thursday. It would reopen Friday, the FBI said.

FBI spokeswoman Michelle Lee could not provide details of the joint operation, which included support from the San Antonio Police Department, the Texas Rangers and Customs and Border Protection.

Lee said the agencies were conducting searches on several properties. Officers were seen at a home and business in San Antonio owned by James Jonas.

The Express-News has reported on concerns over Jonas, who earns more than $200,000 in the tiny town, and discrepancies in the town's books.

 

 

 

 

 

 

An indictment released by the U.S. Attorney's Office accuses Jonas of facilitating and accepting bribes in exchange for helping Nguyen establish 8-liner gaming rooms in areas of Crystal City.

The indictment alleges some of the bribes came from at least two contractors, who are not named or charged in the indictment.

Nguyen was arrested in North Texas and was to have his own initial hearing in Fort Worth.

Jonas and Urribaza were arrested in San Antonio, and were to be initialed by U.S. Magistrate Judge Henry Bemporad.

“We want our town back. It’s been a long time. We know crooked things are going on with these people in office, doing whatever they want to do, spending all our money. It’s going to take us years to get back on track,” said Richard Rivera of Crystal City, a spectator standing outside city hall this morning.

County Commissioner Mike Acosta, who lives near the temporary house that Jonas sometimes occupied on 12th Street, said he was awakened at 5:30 a.m. by the federal officers.

“I heard a banging on doors, and people shouting FBI. They knocked in the door, but Jonas wasn’t home, unfortunately,” he said.

“It’s a sad situation because it affects every single elected official in the city and county. It gives us all a bad image. The county is not involved but we get the bad publicity,” he added.

But, he said, he had little sympathy for the city officials who were arrested.

RELATED: Crystal City council recall election stalled

‘”They dug their own graves. They were supposed to represent the public,” he said.

 

Jonas, a former high powered Republican lobbyist who fell on hard times after the end of the Bush administration, was hired in 2012 as city attorney, despite having no experience. He later became city manager, and was paid $216,000 a year, three times what those two positions had cost the city before his arrival. Much of that money went to support his acknowledged $12,000 a month in child support obligations.

Jonas said he was worth the money because he was doing multiple jobs, and because he was bringing a vision to uplift the low-income city that has long had a reputation for backwardness.

“It’s not ego. It’s mission. Forces bigger than me brought me here, and it will take forces bigger than me to get me out,” he said last fall. "

Local Private Investigator Credited by NBC's Dateline for Freeing Wrongly Convicted Man

"The House on Murder Mountain" - former investigative TV reporter Eric Mason's long journey to free Scott Cannon is intensely portrayed on NBC's Dateline.

Scott Cannon
It has been a long road for Scott Cannon, falsely convicted in a 1998 triple murder but now free, thanks to the help of Oregon's TV reporter-turned-private investigator, Eric Mason.

(SALEM, Ore.) - The night Bimla Boyd killed her property caretaker at her home on what is now known as 'Murder Hill' near Salem, Oregon in 2002, Bonnie King and I were there on assignment for Portland TV station KGW Channel-8. It was a memorable night. We were a freelance TV news camera crew and the only other person on scene beyond the cops, was a single newspaper reporter.

It was raining, it was cold, and the Polk County Sheriff's Office kept us way back, but I had a serious lens and could see the house to some degree. Otherwise it was as dark as any night could be. Still, KGW was glad to receive it.

Shortly after this freelance period, I was hired by Portland's KATU Channel-2, the ABC station in this Northwest city. There I quickly became friends with Eric Mason, a veteran investigative TV reporter who had recently crossed over from KOIN TV, Portland's CBS station. Eric had a reputation for pulling off big stories and exposing corruption in ways that few could. The fact that he transitioned into the role of a private investigator a few years ago, always struck me as a perfectly logical move.

Monday night Eric's role in helping free a falsely convicted Oregon prisoner serving a life sentence for three tragic murders, was featured in a very compelling episode of NBC's Dateline program. They are murders that happened on the same property, the Bimla Boyd residence in west Salem.

It was the afternoon of 23 Nov. 1998 when Jason Kinser, Suzan Osborne and Celesta Graves were all shot to death, reportedly execution style, in the head with a .22-caliber pistol.

Scott Cannon as it turns out, was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

This plumber, also a recreational drug user and firearm collector, called out to a mobile home on the West Salem property owned by Bimla Boyd, ended up taking the fall for the murders.

Eric Mason

As the Dateline program revealed, the prosecutor's smoking gun, was a lead match in the bullets used to murder the three victims, with bullets found in Cannon's home. During Cannon's trial it was an Oregon State University scientist who testified that lead in bullets recovered from the murder scene matched lead in bullets found in Cannon’s garage. He stated that, "There was a 1 in 64 million chance of getting a match like that."

The problem as it turns out, is that the lead matching process used by this scientist to reach the Polk County, Oregon prosecution's conclusion, no longer stands up in court. It has been deemed "Junk Science" by the FBI.

When I worked with Eric Mason at the KATU news bureau in the basement of Oregon's Capitol here in Salem, I remember his frequent contact with Scott Cannon's father, I had a couple of conversations with him myself.

While working for KATU in 2003, I interviewed Polk County's District Attorney John Fisher about the questions surrounding the lead bullet match.

He stated, "I think the matter was fully litigated," He also reaffirmed his confidence in the triple murder conviction of Cannon saying, "I think the jury reached the right decision."

I encouraged Fisher to engage the subject at more length, but he declined.

I might find this all more interesting than some, as we at Salem-News.com continue to investigate serious allegations of levels of corruption in the Oregon state government, particularly relating to Civil Rights crimes against prisoners in the Oregon prison system. We have the logical belief that such grievances are to be addressed with the Oregon Attorney General, but the office of Oregon AG John Kroger won't engage our requests to engage the subject of corruption, in spite of how serious the charges are.

 

Interestingly, the Oregon Department of Justice, AG John Kroger, the Polk County District Attorney and the Polk County Sheriff all refused to talk to Dateline. This certainly seems to raise the levels of suspicion in the minds of Americans.

Our ongoing series about former Oregon Corrections Officer William Coleman, which involves extreme racism in the Oregon State Prison and his role as a whistleblower who experienced very serious retaliation on a state level, intersects with the Cannon story.

Coleman was the supervisor of the cell block at the penitentiary that Cannon lived in. "What I remember is him telling me that he was innocent of his crime. I had heard about the case on the outside." Coleman recalls Cannon's words, "Sooner or later the truth will come out". Coleman remembers believing that based on Cannon's character, he could have indeed been innocent.

"It was the passion he used to defend himself, he just didn't seem like he did it. The murderers doing time, they all know that they committed their crimes, they aren't going to say they didn't do it. With Cannon where drugs were involved, even if there was a memory lapse in the situation, you would know you were involved, you would know you did something stupid."

For people like Scott Cannon and his son, 20-year old Mathias Cannon, life took an unexpected upswing. While Cannon can't do anything to make up for the lost years, he appears to be set now that he is reunited with a family that never gave up hope.

The families of the three murder victims are not pleased by the change of events. Quite obviously they all want to have faith in the legal system, and many related people stated their dissatisfaction with the developments. It was clear that none of them wanted an innocent man condemned for the crime, but the good news for Cannon was not something they shared.

Families do not always fare well in Polk County, Oregon. Our treasured writer, author and extreme domestic abuse survivor Coral Theill can tell you all about it. At great physical and emotional cost, she survived years of physical abuse and marital rape while living in this Oregon county. Her husband, Marty Warner, ended up with all of the couple's children, and never expected Coral to write a book, Bonshea about the ordeal that would become extremely popular as a PTSD survival guide for, of all things, US Marines in Iraq and Afghanistan.

There is a lot more to the story of Scott Cannon and Bimla Boyd. Eric Mason discovered along the way that a man described as "Hispanic" by Cannon, who was reportedly in the house with the murder victims, was possibly identified by Polk County investigators during the investigation, but never revealed to the defense.

It is not the only evidence; in fact the prosecution files in Polk County were disrupted, things were missing, and that prevented the prosecution from retrying Cannon. They never intended to bow out gracefully and the state of Oregon itself, the entity that will not communicate with the national program Dateline, still considers Cannon to be the only suspect.

It is noteworthy that Bimla Boyd's husband also died on the property. That makes a total of five deaths that took place at the Bimla Boyd residence. It is a long and twisted story, Bimla Boyd is originally from Fiji and was a devout Jehovah's Witness. Please watch the Dateline program

Deschutes County captain arrested after allegedly stealing $205,000

A Deschutes County Sheriff's Office captain is accused of embezzling, stealing and fraudulently obtaining more than $205,000, according to an indictment filed in U.S. District Court this week.

Capt. Scott Raymond Beard, a 45-year-old Bend resident who has been on paid leave from the agency since last fall, has been indicted on two counts of theft of funds from a federally funded program; two counts of money laundering; and a single count of passport fraud.

Beard, who is in charge of the office's detectives division, is accused of devising a scheme to embezzle, steal and fraudulently obtain money to pay for personal items beginning in at least January 2014, according to the court documents.

The personal items include payments to Krista Jean Mudrick, a former sheriff's office employee with whom he had a sexual relationship until at least September 2015, according to the documents. Beard was one of her supervisors.

The personal items also included money given to Mudrick for a motorcycle, vacations, concert tickets, gym membership, tanning expenses, rent, household expenses and cosmetic surgeries, according to the documents.

Mudrick, a 35-year-old Bend resident, has also been indicted for making a false statement to federal law enforcement agents.

Beard is accused of obtaining about $136,000 from the Deschutes County Finance Department by making fake funding requests — or inflating existing ones — for law enforcement and witness expenses, according to the documents.

He approves such requests for undercover drug purchases and witness expenses for the sheriff's office and interagency Central Oregon Drug Enforcement team, the documents say.

The county finance department would cut checks payable to him; he would cash them; and then keep all or a "substantial" amount of the cash for himself, the documents say.

He also is accused of stealing money and precious metals seized by the sheriff's office and interagency team, according to the documents. The cash, coins and precious metals are valued at nearly $70,000.

Beard was arrested Friday in Bend, U.S. District Court spokeswoman Gerri Badden said in a news release. He was booked into the Lane County Jail shortly before 3 p.m. Friday, according to jail records.

He's scheduled to appear before U.S. Magistrate Judge Thomas Coffin in Eugene on Monday, Badden wrote. Mudrick has been issued a summons to appear at an arraignment in Eugene on Monday, as well, Badden wrote.

Beard joined the sheriff's office full-time as a deputy in 2002, according to the office's website, and was promoted to his captain role in October 2012. 

He had previously worked in a reserve capacity for the sheriff's office. "

 

 

 

BEND — A Deschutes County sheriff's captain faces federal charges that he stole more than $200,000 from the county, then turned over much of it to an ex-colleague with whom he had a romantic relationship.

Scott Beard was arrested and fired Friday, two days after a grand jury returned a five-count indictment

charging him with theft, money laundering and passport fraud, The Bulletin newspaper reported (http://bit.ly/1RU4ZhN). He was jailed pending a Monday court appearance.

Beard, 45, is accused of stealing the money between January 2014 and September 2015, when he was put on paid administrative leave. Investigators say he sometimes submitted overstated or fake funding requests for a regional drug task force he oversaw.
His attorney, Erick Ward, said in an email to The Associated Press on Saturday that he could not immediately comment on the case.
Beard gave at least $100,000 to former sheriff's office employee Krista Mudrick, 35, the indictment says. She faces a single count of lying to investigators.
In October, Mudrick denied in interviews with FBI and IRS agents that she had a romantic relationship with Beard and that he had paid for a Harley-Davidson motorcycle for her and a trip abroad, the indictment says. Beard paid $6,700 in cash for the motorcycle, according to the charges.
Authorities said some of the money was spent on cosmetic surgeries for Mudrick.
Mudrick told The Bulletin she wanted the public to know she was "a good person" who accepted "help" from Beard.
An internal audit showed the county money was missing.
Beard was promoted to captain in 2012, a decade after he joined the sheriff's office as a deputy.
Mudrick, who served as a reserve deputy, civil technician, and field law enforcement technician, also has been terminated. She, too, faces a court appearance Monday.
Deschutes County Sheriff Shane Nelson said Friday he wants only the best employees working for the office."
"We will root out those employees that don't follow our mission and values," he told The Bulletin."

David Rath Meets More of the Money

 What's the deal with Dave and all that

 

mercenary money anyway???

-

 

 According to Precision managing director David Rath, the company has received positive feedback from neighbors on the Cabri’s low noise signature. (They should try it at Ashland airport thunder grounds...)

-

 

 

 

 

 

 "When Rath joined Precision as managing director, it became apparent to him that the future of the S-300 was limited. “We started researching what aircraft we could go to for training,” he recalled. Friends in New Zealand suggested the Cabri, so Rath reached out to Bruno Guimbal, the aircraft’s designer and CEO and president of Hélicoptères Guimbal in Aix-en-Provence, France. Guimbal became convinced that Precision was the right operator to launch the Cabri in North America, and the companies embarked on a 16-month FAA certification process that culminated in February 2015 (see p.44, Vertical Show News, Heli-Expo 2015 " 

  - -- 

 

" On a crisp, sunny day in October, I strapped into a Guimbal Cabri G2 for the first time at Precision Helicopters in Newberg, Ore. With me was Precision’s director of training, Nigel Cooper, who would be introducing me to the two-seat training helicopter.
http://www.verticalmag.com/news/article/Meet-the-Cabri
As I settled in for the flight, I was immediately impressed — by the clean panel layout, fantastic visibility, and obvious quality of the aircraft’s construction. But I didn’t realize how impressed I was until Cooper pressed the starter button and I jumped in my seat. The Cabri has a sophistication of design that is usually associated with turbine-engine helicopters; subconsciously, my mind had prepared itself for the smooth sound of a turbine spooling up. I had to remind myself that the powerplant firing behind us was actually a Lycoming O360-J2A — the same piston engine that powers the Beta II version of the Robinson R22.
-
 

 

 and blah blah blah...until it happens to you:

 

"  Although Precision suffered a fatal S-300 crash in July 2015, David Rath was quick to note that the company doesn’t consider any helicopter model to be inherently unsafe. (The nighttime training accident was the only fatal crash in the company’s history; at press time, the cause had yet to be determined.) Yet the Cabri’s safety features will necessarily factor into any student’s decision to train in it, and “we’re remiss unless we communicate the safety benefits of the aircraft,” Rath said. When I did my own primary helicopter flight training in 2004, the Cabri wasn’t yet on the market. But if I had it to do over again, I would certainly be giving the Cabri, and Precision, a closer look.

 - --

 

 Cause Klamath Falls is so easy to access, and so hopping busy...

"  A relatively new division is Precision Integrated Programs, which offers operational services and expertise in unmanned aircraft systems to government and other customers around the world.


Then there is the flight training division, Precision Aviation Training. The school has two locations: one at Precision’s headquarters in Newberg, and one in Klamath Falls, Ore., through a partnership with Klamath Community College. With around 25 full-time students, Precision is not a particularly large school; although the company eventually expects to double those numbers, it has prioritized its traditional focus on quality over quantity. “We have a great reputation and we want to keep that,” explained Nigel Cooper. “That’s why we want to train really good pilots.”

  • PAY THE PIPER

    Top tax delinquents in Oregon include four from Jackson County

 

 

 

 

"The top tax delinquents in Oregon — including four from Jackson County who together owe more than $2 million — are being outed by the state Department of Revenue in hopes of getting them to pay their debts.
In a pilot project, the Department of Revenue released the names this week of the top 50 delinquent individuals who have failed to pay personal taxes totaling more than $34 million.
“We would sure like to get those collected and get people off the list,” said Bob Estabrook, spokesman for the Department of Revenue.
In Jackson County, the largest amount owed is $652,388 by Rickey J. Matthews of Eagle Point. Among the 50 top delinquent taxpayers, Matthews ranked 15th.
Gary T. Whittle, a Medford resident, is the second-highest local tax delinquent, owing $557,081. Whittle is 17th on the list.
-
-
 
 
 
 
Jeffrey L. Chamberlain of Medford owes $457,081.87, and Kenneth L. Anderson of Central Point owes $404,634, according to the state. They are ranked 29th and 33rd respectively on the state’s ranking list.
Randall D. Jeffers of Woodburn is number one on the state’s list, owing nearly $3.9 million.
The list includes those who owe personal taxes and have not responded to multiple inquiries from the Department of Revenue. In addition, the Department of Revenue says it has used collection agencies to collect the debt without any success.
Other than the basic information provided on the list, Estabrook said his department wouldn’t release any additional information about the delinquent taxpayers.
In some cases, years may have passed since the Department of Revenue has heard from these people, Estabrook said.
“This is not somebody who missed taxes for one tax period,” Estabrook said. “These are folks who have debts going on for a period of time.”
The debt also includes penalties because of failure to pay after receiving notice from the state.
The Department of Revenue has various tools at its disposal to collect back taxes, including garnishing wages or attaching bank accounts.
Estabrook said it is unlikely that anyone will face criminal charges related to tax evasion, because that is a high legal bar to prove.
“We do not send people to jail for not paying their taxes,” he said.
Estabrook said his department would like to hear from delinquent taxpayers even if they don’t have the financial means to repay the debt. He said some may have lost considerable amounts of wealth during the recession, while others may be on Social Security, have severe health issues or have faced a death in the family.
Other states have also posted lists of delinquent taxpayers. Estabrook said his department wants to gauge whether posting the list this year encourages some to work toward paying off their debt so they can get their names off the list.
If the taxes are paid in full or payment arrangements are made, the Department of Revenue will remove a person’s name from the list within 10 days.
The Department of Revenue also released a list of 50 companies that have failed to pay almost $9 million in payroll taxes; none of the companies were from the Rogue Valley. Courtesy Staffing at Boardman topped the list, owing more than $500,000.
Despite the large dollar amounts owed by the delinquent taxpayers, Estabrook said, a majority of taxpayers in Oregon pay on time or make arrangements to pay down their debt.
In releasing the names, the Department of Revenue indicated it didn’t release information about people who have filed for bankruptcy protection, have appealed their debt claim, have a warrant for a debt that isn’t recorded in a county or where collection actions have been suspended. "

  • LAW ENFORCEMENT

    Sheriff Corey Falls wants officers to shift from warrior to guardian

 

 

 A teen driving with his mother was let go with a warning Thursday by Sheriff's Deputy Blake Cam after being stopped for a passing violation near Ashland. Sheriff Corey Falls is embarking on a training effort to develop more trust between officers and the public.

 ( This is actually a very poor passing / merging area as well )

 

" Sheriff Corey Falls sees a culture shift as an important way to improve public trust in law enforcement.
Falls points to national signs that the country is growing more skeptical of police actions. He sees the race-focused protests in headlines across the country, he hears the public support for body cameras to ensure outside scrutiny, and he knows not all who've worn a uniform have lived up the expected standard.
In Jackson County, Falls wants his department to adapt before the public demands it.
"I don't want to lose the public trust," said Falls, who was elected in 2014.
He distilled a training series his deputies will soon undergo as a shift from a "warrior" mentality, in which people are considered potential threats to officer safety, to a "guardian" mentality that places a higher value on respecting individuals the department faces.
Falls said the shift is a balance of two priorities. The "warrior" culture stems from encouraging officers to be prepared for any situation, even if the gruff and arms-length demeanor can put off otherwise law-abiding people, such as those in need of help or involved in a traffic infraction. The challenge is keeping officers safe while treating the public respectfully.
"You want them to go home every night," Falls said of his officers, adding, "I want people treated appropriately."
Falls typically describes the "guardian" mentality using terms such as "legitimacy" and "procedural justice." The ideas behind the terms are easier to understand than the jargon.
Legitimacy focuses on building public trust, which in turn gives police more support from the public.
According to a 35-page Police Executive Research Forum report Falls recently posted on the Sheriff's Office website, police agencies are considered legitimate if the public believes police actions are morally justified and appropriate. Legitimacy means the public believes police are honest and do their jobs well, and individuals are more willing to cooperate with police when the public trusts them, the report says.
Falls became familiar with the report after joining the Police Executive Research Forum last year, although Falls said he's followed the organization since 2009 through now-retired Ashland police Chief Terry Holderness. Falls was previously a deputy chief in Ashland.
 
 
The term "procedural justice" touches on police procedures to move closer to achieving legitimacy. It includes allowing opportunities for people to tell their side of the story, provides resources such as training to ensure officers are making decisions on facts rather than biases and are treating people with dignity.
Falls introduced the ideas behind the culture shift to his staff a week ago, and he said he's still determining how best to train staff on the concepts. He admits there's a "rub" with many officers who see the training programs and say, "Hey, we already do this."
Falls said he sees the initiative as a redoubling of efforts that's as much for the public as for his staff.
About two months ago, Falls attended an Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training seminar that discussed ways to incorporate the report's information in officer training.
In February, Falls attended a "train the trainer" seminar for Fair & Impartial Policing, a procedural justice training program developed by Prof. Lorie Fridell with the University of South Florida. The program teaches participants to think beyond "racism" and instead to be aware of their own biases — something neither good nor bad that all people hold — and provides training to ensure officers are working within legal standards rather than from those biases.
"It's a commitment to the public, we want to be legitimate," Falls said. "This is the direction we're moving."
Falls said asking officers to understand their own biases isn't "touchy-feely," but is a tool that ensures all people are respected when they deal with his agency.
 
"They want to be treated with respect," Falls said.
Falls emphasizes that ensuring his staff is respectful is in no way soft on crime.
"We're still going to have to use force on someone sometimes," Falls said. "

Fire That Kills "One"

 

Fire that kills one, destroys home called suspicious

 

September 04, 2008

" Investigators are at the scene of a suspicious fire that destroyed a rural home and left a person dead.

The call reporting a house fire in the 12800 block of Dead Indian Memorial Road came to Jackson County Fire District No. 5 at about 4 a.m. today.

The house, nearly 13 miles into the hills outside Ashland, burned completely. A body was found inside.

Investigators from the fire district and Jackson County Sheriff's Department consider the fire suspicious and expect to spend the day examining evidence at the burnt home.

Limited information was available this morning, but additional details should be available later"

" Mike Winters Has No Indication" or Clues

 

 

Cabin fire probe continues

 

September 25, 2008

 

" Jackson County Sheriff Mike Winters said his department is continuing an "active criminal investigation" into a pair of house fires on Dead Indian Memorial Road earlier this month and the death of a man who lived in one of the destroyed homes.

Two fires — at 18196 and 12801 Dead Indian Memorial Road — were reported about an hour apart in the early morning hours of Sept. 4. Both homes burned to the ground and a man's body was found inside the cabin at the summit, where David Lewis, 46, had lived for more than two decades. The other cabin, near the intersection with Keno Access Road, was a summer home occupied only on weekends, neighbors and authorities said.

"Investigators are working on this case," Winters said Wednesday. "They've done lots of interviews."

They haven't confirmed the identity of the dead man, although Lewis' friends and family held a memorial for him on the mountain Sept. 14.

Investigators contacted several local dentists but couldn't come up with recent dental records for Lewis. DNA samples from the body found in Lewis' cabin and from Lewis' family members have been sent to the University of North Texas Center for Human Identification, a national program supported in part by the Department of Justice.

An autopsy was done, but Winters declined to release the cause of death.

He said details of the investigation can't be made public, but detectives are tracking down every clue.

"It's an odd set of circumstances to have two residences burn down at the same time in this remote location," said Winters, who owns property and spends time in the rural area in the mountains east of Ashland.

Theories about what might have happened and safety concerns have circulated through the mountaintop community, where residents in search of details about the shocking crime are eager to chat with the sheriff.

Winters said he has no information to indicate people or homes there are at any additional risk"

    Erickson reports 2015 loss of $86.7 million

 - --

 

 

 

 

 

The oil and gas industry was mired in a slump, the wildfire season was relatively mild, the Small Business Administration decided Erickson wasn't small enough to qualify for certain government contracts, and debt left over from the leveraged buyout of a competitor years ago continued to cast a long shadow.
It all added up to make 2015 one rough year for aviation firm Erickson, whose primary manufacturing and maintenance operations are in Jackson County.
Erickson Thursday reported a fourth-quarter loss of $16.7 million, compared with a $2.5 million setback a year earlier,
and a full year 2015 loss of $86.7 million after a $10.3 million loss in 2014.
Revenue for the fourth quarter declined to $60.9 million from $73.2 million, while full-year revenue slipped to $297.5 million from $346.6 million in 2014.
"While we are disappointed with our performance, our cash flow improvement reflects the dramatic changes we have made since last year," CEO Jeff Roberts said during a morning conference call. "The improvement is a result of our cut-around plan that included reductions in operating expenses, streamlining our operations, aggressive working capital management and disciplined capital investing. More specifically we have reduced lease expense, rationalized our operating structure, (updated) our fleet plan, closed underutilized facilities and bolstered our front end."
Although Roberts sees long-term oil and gas exploration opportunities, short-term revenue will be diminished.
"We believe we can add value for onshore operations where customers need self-sustained support in remote and challenging environments," Roberts said. "We're increasingly less focused on the offshore market, which is crowded and has very unique, specific aircraft requirements."
Roberts said it has revamped its bidding procedure following the SBA's determination.
"Although we strongly disagree with the decision, the SBA determined that Erickson is something other than small and thus not able to directly bid on certain government contracts that are set aside for small businesses," he said. "We're evaluating our options to address this issue. In order to comply with certain standards under the Small Business Administration requirements, we had to change our bidding procedure to include a small business to act as the prime contractor."
He indicated that the company will likely produce fewer of the Seeker surveillance aircraft this year than thought earlier, partly because Albuquerque, N.M.-based Seeker Aircraft is still negotiating sales for the airplanes that cost between $400,000 and $500,000 per unit. He said the numebrs being discussed range anwhere from five to 25.

  • CONTINUING COVERAGE: BREIDENTHAL

    Commissioner faces criminal investigation

 

 Jackson County Commissioner Doug Breidenthal is under criminal investigation by the Oregon Department of Justice in a probe that parallels a separate investigation by the Oregon Government Ethics Commission.

“I do not believe that I have committed any criminal conduct,” Breidenthal stated in an email response Friday. “First, I want to say that I welcome these investigations so that the truth may be revealed.”
Breidenthal said he’s not privy to the full scope of the Justice Department investigation, though he said the DOJ is looking into the same issues as the Ethics Commission.
Kristina Edmundson, spokeswoman for the Justice Department, said she couldn’t provide any additional information at this point. “It is still an ongoing investigation,” she stated in a Friday email.
The Ethics Commission, which has suspended its inquiry pending the outcome of the Justice Department investigation, has looked into a number of possible violations of Oregon laws regarding an Association of Oregon Counties’ campaign account that Breidenthal initially used to run for an office on the Western Interstate Region, a land-use reform group.
The Ethics Commission started its investigation after a preliminary review found there was “substantial objective basis to believe that violations of Oregon government ethics law may have occurred, and that Mr. Breidenthal may have committed such violations.”
The commission investigation was triggered by an ethics complaint filed by Jackson County Auditor Eric Spivak.
The Ethics Commission's preliminary review said Breidenthal may have violated Oregon law concerning the receipt of gifts valued at more than $50 from parties with interests before the Jackson County Board of Commissioners, the use of an official position for financial gain and the proper reporting of payments to cover trip expenses.
Once justice officials conclude their inquiries, the Ethics Commission plans to restart its investigation.
According to a recording of the Ethics Commission’s Feb. 26 meeting, commission officials said the Justice Department was running a “parallel” investigation.
Commission officials said they could “benefit” from additional information gleaned from the outcome of the DOJ inquiry. The officials noted that their own inquiry might be hampered in the near term because Breidenthal may not want to discuss anything while he is under criminal investigation.
When the Association of Oregon Counties account was set up in 2014, it was to be used by Breidenthal for campaign activities related to positions he sought with other organizations. The account was named “Friends of Doug Breidenthal,” which was the same name used by Breidenthal for a separate account when he ran for county commissioner.
The AOC account received $12,900 in donations, many of which were from companies that do business with Jackson County. Breidenthal also made a campaign contribution of $1,000 to Rick Dyer when the latter was running for county commissioner.
Breidenthal has maintained that he thought he was using the account properly.
“I was advised and guided by AOC personnel, as well as county officials,” he stated. “I did so with their encouragement and support. Based upon the advice and guidance that I received, I felt that the account was set up and used properly at all times.”
Breidenthal said other Oregon public officials have set up similar accounts.
“For the sake of all elected officials, I welcome final determination regarding these activities by both the DOJ and Oregon Ethics Commission,” he stated.
Breidenthal said he thought the Justice Department investigation started after he contacted Jackson County Sheriff Corey Falls, saying the ethics complaint was an attempt by Jackson County Administrator Danny Jordan to coerce him. Breidenthal said that after he contacted Falls, the sheriff referred the complaint to the Oregon Department of Justice.
Breidenthal also has come under criticism by his fellow commissioners because of his extensive traveling on county business over the past three years and for missing county meetings. His travel expenses have amounted to $73,000, not including the separate AOC account.
Dyer said he hopes Breidenthal is found not guilty after the investigations are concluded.
“He’s still innocent until proven otherwise,” Dyer said. “I am really looking forward to the whole specter of all this going away.”
Dyer said he hasn’t been contacted by any agency about the contribution he received from Breidenthal.
Dyer said there have been awkward moments among county commissioners of late, but the county’s business continues to get done.
“I won’t say that Doug is not doing his job,” he said. “He has weathered it fairly well.”
As to Breidenthal’s traveling on county business, Dyer said, “I won’t say his travel has slowed down.”
But Dyer said he and Commissioner Colleen Roberts also have looked at requests for travel more closely and have said “no” to some requests.
With the May primary just two months away, Breidenthal’s criminal investigation could become a campaign issue. Former Medford Councilor Bob Strosser and Gordon Challstrom are Breidenthal’s two opponents on the Republican ballot.
Both Strosser and Challstrom have said they wouldn’t make a campaign issue out of any investigation against Breidenthal.
“I’m not going to get down in the mud,” Challstrom said. “I don’t hit people below the belt.”
Challstrom said he would respond to questions about the issue if asked by voters.
“I’m really so sorry to see that for him personally and the citizens of Jackson County,” he said. “It’s a bad deal all around.”

Portland-Bound Hellfire Missiles Found On Air Serbia Flight: Report

The flight was headed from Lebanon to Serbia.

" Serbian authorities are investigating reports that two missiles were found in cargo headed to the U.S on a passenger flight from Lebanon to Serbia, The Associated Press reports.

The cargo containing the pair of "armor-piercing missiles" aboard an Air Serbia flight from Beirut was discovered Saturday at Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport, the AP reports, citing Serbian television. The missiles had been packed in wooden crates, according to Serbian TV station N1.

Serbian media reports say the cargo was bound for Portland, Oregon.

A spokeswoman for the FBI’s Portland division said the bureau is aware of the report, but had no information to release. Representatives with Air Serbia did not immediately respond to request for comment, but told Serbian media they were cooperating in the investigation.

A spokesman for Lockheed Martin, which manufactures the weapons, said the company had not yet been notified about the issue and referred further questions to government officials.

The missiles are able to lock onto a target before or after launch, according to a description from Lockheed Martin. One missile can easily destroy a car or a tank. The company notes the missiles have been used in both Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.

There's no legitimate reason for the missiles to be on a passenger flight, Robert Caruso, a former State Department and Pentagon staffer, tweeted Sunday. The missiles, he speculated, were probably stolen."

Attorney: Murder was over drug deal

 

McKenna
" One of three suspects in the October killing of Crescent City man Roger Huntington, 43, was sentenced Thursday to 10 years in prison. Another still awaits court, and a third remains at large. 

Blake Sibley, 21, of Denton County, Texas pleaded guilty in Josephine County Circuit Court this week to first-degree manslaughter and robbery in connection with what sources say was a high-volume drug deal gone bad, a claim supported by reports from Oregon authorities as well as Sibley’s defense counsel.

According to his attorney, Dan Simcoe, Sibley and his cohort Carroll “B.J.” Ballard, 23, had already made numerous trips north from Texas to purchase marijuana, but on their latest voyage they brought a third party named Marshall McKenna, 23, of Ponder, Texas. 

The three men met Huntington late last year near the Lake Selmac, Oregon boat ramp, off U.S. 199 between Cave Junction and Grants Pass

Simcoe said the trio had arranged to purchase 15 pounds of marijuana, which could sell for four times as much in Texas as it would locally. Simcoe said unbeknownst to Sibley, Ballard and McKenna “had made arrangements to try to get the marijuana without paying for it.” 

In the ensuing struggle, McKenna allegedly pistol-whipped Huntington before shooting and killing him. 

On Oct. 23, a jogger found Huntington’s body in his black Chevrolet TrailBlazer. Days later, Ballard was apprehended in Ashland and Sibley in Josephine County, according to the Grants Pass Daily Courier. 

The search for McKenna, still at hand, has been handed over from the Josephine County Major Crime Team to U.S. Marshals. No representative of the Oregon or Northern California Marshal office replied to a request for an update Friday morning. 

Sibley’s plea this week was part of a negotiated resolution that spared him from an additional charge of unlawful use of a weapon and second-degree assault. Simcoe said the deal in no way involved Sibley giving authorities information on McKenna’s whereabouts, of which he is completely ignorant. 

“He has no information,” said Simcoe. “This was certainly unplanned by my client.”

Meanwhile, Ballard, also of Denton County, Texas, awaits an April 14 court date on charges including first-degree manslaughter and robbery as well as the same two spared from Sibley in his deal. 

Ballard’s assigned public defender, Joe Maier, did not respond to a request for comment Friday. 

McKenna’s charges are almost identical to Ballard’s, although as the alleged triggerman he faces aggravated murder with a firearm rather than first-degree manslaughter, according to Josephine County Deputy District Attorney Lisa Turner.  

Initial reports from Oregon State Police describe McKenna as a white male, 5 feet 9 inches, and 160 pounds, with blond hair and green eyes. He is considered armed and dangerous by the Oregon State Police, who encourage anyone with information about him to contact their command center at 541-776-6111.

In late October, Huntington’s sister remembered him as a truck driver and outdoorsman with a love for fishing. She did not reply to a request for comment Friday."

Buying meth, and refusing arrest: Shane Hagey no longer is Community Justice chief

Accused of buying meth, Shane Hagey has left county employ

" Shane Hagey is no longer employed as Jackson County's Community Justice director following his arrest for allegedly buying methamphetamine from an informant during a Medford police investigation.
Jackson County Administrator Danny Jordan confirmed Wednesday that Hagey's employment with the county ended as of Friday. Jordan declined to say whether Hagey had been fired or resigned.
"We do not comment on personnel matters," Jordan said.
Hagey was placed on paid administrative leave the day after his Dec. 30 arrest. Jordan declined to say how long Hagey had been on paid leave before his employment with the county ended Friday.
As director of Community Justice, Hagey oversaw adult probation and parole, juvenile probation, the juvenile detention facility and the Community Justice Transition Center.
Medford police began investigating Hagey after an informant claimed Hagey had been buying small amounts of meth from the informant at various Medford locations. The informant assisted police in exchange for consideration on pending felony charges, according to a search warrant affidavit.
Hagey pleaded not guilty Jan. 29 to a charge of methamphetamine possession.
Jackson County District Attorney Beth Heckert has said she will not make a plea agreement offer to Hagey that includes an opportunity for a conditional discharge.
With a conditional discharge, a defendant agrees to comply with certain conditions for a period of time. If the defendant successfully completes the terms, the case can be dismissed and a felony conviction will not appear on the person's record.
Heckert has said she will not offer the conditional discharge because of Hagey's position in the community.
Carl Caplan, Hagey's defense attorney, filed a motion last week asking a judge to allow Hagey's participation in a conditional discharge program.
In a memorandum accompanying the motion, Caplan argued that the denial of conditional discharge represents "selective prosecution, denial of equal protection and a violation of the privileges and immunities clause of the Oregon Constitution."
Caplan cited a previous court ruling that the government treat similarly situated people the same, unless there is a rational explanation for different treatment.
Caplan said the Jackson County District Attorney's Office has a policy for denying defendants' entry into conditional discharge programs for drug cases, including if they have prior drug convictions or have previously entered a deferred sentencing program. Caplan said Hagey has no prior criminal history and has never been in a conditional discharge or diversion program.
The policy also allows the district attorney to consider a defendant's likelihood of successfully completing a conditional discharge program based on factors such as motivation to complete drug treatment.
Caplan said Hagey has completed a residential treatment program and is enrolled in local after-care treatment.
"Position in the community is not listed as a factor to exclude a person from entering the conditional discharge program," Caplan wrote in the court document.
Josephine County Circuit Judge Lindi Baker is being brought in to consider Caplan's motion to allow a conditional discharge. A hearing on the issue is scheduled for May 16, according to court records.
A pre-trial conference before Jackson County Circuit Judge Lorenzo Mejia is scheduled for May 23, 2016. "

Police apprehend fugitive in 2015 Southern Oregon murder case

 

 

 

 

 

Local report

" Police have the alleged triggerman in a 2015 Josephine County slaying in custody after he remained a fugitive for five months following a shooting at Lake Selmac.
According to a release from the Oregon State Police, Marshall William McKenna, age 24, from Ponder, Texas, was taken into custody early this morning and lodged in the Webb County Jail in Laredo, Texas. No additional details on the arrest were provided.
McKenna was one of three young men authorities identified as having participated in the killing of Robert Huntington, who was found shot to death Oct. 23 in his SUV at Lake Selmac in October. Police said they believe the shooting stemmed from a drug deal gone bad.
Blake Raymond Sibley, 21, of Denton, Texas, pleaded guilty March 17 to a charge of first-degree manslaughter in the slaying and was sentenced to 10 years in prison. He also pleaded guilty to a charge of first-degree robbery in the case.
Sibley and co-defendant Carroll Eugene Ballard, 23, were picked up within days of the discovery of Huntington's body. Ballard remains in custody pending a court date. But McKenna had remained at large and had been the target of manhunt by multiple agencies. The OSP press release said participating agencies included U.S. Marshals Service officers from the Pacific Northwest and Texas and the Denton County (Texas) Sheriff's Office. The Josephine County Major Crime team was involved in the investigation locally.
OSP investigators said the trio robbed Huntington at gunpoint and McKenna allegedly fired the fatal shot during the robbery. Huntington's body was found inside his black Chevrolet TrailBlazer near the Lake Selmac boat ramp, about 25 miles south of Grants Pass.
Although McKenna was at large, the District Attorney's Office previously charged him with aggravated murder with a firearm, first-degree robbery, unlawful use of a weapon and second-degree assault with a firearm for allegedly pistol-whipping Huntington during the robbery.
It was unclear where Huntington was living at the time of his death, but a family member said he may have been splitting time between Eureka, Calif., and Texas.
All three suspects were from the Forth Worth, Texas, area, according to authorities, although Ballard had a court record in Southern Oregon that indicated he was living in Eagle Point as recently as 2014.
At the time of the slaying, Ballard had a warrant out for his arrest in Jackson County for the alleged theft of a freezer in August 2013. He also had traffic tickets in Jackson County in 2012 "

  Brenda Delgado, accused of orchestrating the murder of a Dallas dentist in September 2015. 

The jilted woman accused of plotting the murder of a Dallas pediatric dentist last September was formally added to the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list Wednesday. 

Brenda Delgado is only the ninth woman to make the list since its inception in 1950. Federal investigators told a news conference Wednesday that they are offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to her capture.

"Delgado’s addition to the list underscores the violent and calculated nature of the crime she’s accused of committing," FBI Special Agent in Charge Thomas Class Sr., said Wednesday.

Delgado, 33, is charged with capital murder and unlawful flight to avoid prosecution in connection with the Sept. 2 death of Dr. Kendra Hatcher. Authorities say Delgado ordered Hatcher's murder because she was jealous of the dentist's relationship with her ex-boyfriend. 

Authorities have already arrested three people in connection with the killing, including the suspected triggerman. Kristopher Love, arrested last October, has also been charged with capital murder after he allegedly shot Hatcher in the parking complex of her garage.

Delgado, a Mexican citizen, is believed to be hiding somewhere in her own country. Dallas County District Attorney Susan Hawk said Wednesday that by law, Delgado cannot face the death penalty if she is apprehended in Mexico and extradited to the U.S. 

Delgado  is described as standing about five feet, five inches tall and weighing approximately 145 pounds. She has black hair and brown eyes and should be considered armed and dangerous.

Danny Jordan Has Got to Go....

 

" Smith said the loan wasn't a secret, but acknowledged it would generate heat from the public no matter how it was handled.
"I don't think we would try to make a big deal out of it," he said. "You're just opening yourself up to everybody coming out of the woods. There's always that segment of the community that isn't happy no matter how you do it."

 

Administrator is overpaid
Has anyone else noticed our county administrator’s salary increased to more than $263,000 a year, or about $22,000 a month? And this expense is for just one individual’s salary approved by three fiscal-conservative commissioners.
If the potential for lost revenue after losing an employee is greater than an employee’s actual overhead expense, then it makes perfect sense to keep that employee on the payroll; however, when a very experienced $135,000-a-year deputy administrator is more than qualified to assume a mostly-redundant administrator position, might the county’s net worth unwind and catastrophically hemorrhage on the order of more than a quarter-million dollars a year? Let that sink in.
During his 8 a.m. March 25 interview on BillMeyerShow.com, former Commissioner C.W. Smith stated at 24:49 that “there is an end date [to Danny Jordan’s contract] if one or the other two parties choose to have that end date, and there’s a clause for him to leave.” Now is the time for the commissioners to let the administrator go and use the $250,000 a year as a kicker stimulus for the private-sector economy. Sorry, public-sector employees need not apply! 2016 can be the year for commissioners to prove they’re fiscally prudent. Just do it.

In addition to a salary of $170,060 plus all the other perks that Jackson County Administrator Danny Jordan gets, he also gets a $1,000 monthly housing allowance? Excuse me?
That's what folks living below the poverty level are supposed to get. We taxpayers foot the loan to provide him with a $654,000 home, and then we also give him a housing allowance to make the monthly payment? Regardless of the fact that such loans may be common in the corporate world, and regardless of the fact that Jordan is regarded as a "dynamic and accomplished administrator," which I have no doubt that he is, why is Danny Jordan not saying "No, thank you" to this completely unnecessary practice?
Perhaps he could offer this $12,000 a year to the Jackson County General Fund, for example, to help support county libraries? I find these so-called "benefits" highly offensive. — Ginger Rilling, Medford

  • Here's The Deal

    Jackson County commissioners praise administrator Danny Jordan, as details of his contract come to light
  • Jackson County taxpayers footed the bill for a $654,000 loan to County Administrator Danny Jordan for his east Medford house, granted as part of his salary package negotiated in 2009.
 
 

 

Jackson County taxpayers footed the bill for a $654,000 loan to County Administrator Danny Jordan for his east Medford house, granted as part of his salary package negotiated in 2009.
The loan was described in a trust deed obtained by the Mail Tribune earlier this month.
"I'm just speechless, to be honest," said county Budget Committee member Craig Morris when told about the loan. "I didn't know that." He said this type of transaction wouldn't necessarily come up during budget meetings, however.
County officials maintain the loan is legal, was properly noticed and is part of a compensation package needed to keep a highly valued employee. But they made little attempt to let the public know about it.
The agenda item describing the commissioners' vote on the loan for their March 26, 2009, meeting did not mention Jordan's name. The item read, "Order Authorizing the Chair of the Jackson County Board of Commissioners to execute an agreement and lender's escrow instructions with employee, #66-09." The number refers to the board order.
"It was pretty vague," said County Commissioner John Rachor, who was elected to the board in 2010. "Boy, it was really vague."
Rachor said the notice reflects a lack of transparency in government that he would like to improve.
If he had been on the board in 2009, Rachor said, he probably wouldn't have approved the loan unless he had had full confidence in Jordan's abilities. Now that he's had nine months to gauge Jordan's capabilities, Rachor said he would have no problem giving him the loan.
"I would agree with it now," he said.
Rachor said he would have made sure the public knew about the loan, then fended off the anticipated criticism by explaining why Jordan was worth the money.
"The sooner it comes out, the better," he said.
Rachor said commissioners from other counties tell him how much they admire Jordan as an administrator.
"They all think that Jackson County is in great financial shape," he said.
The loan was negotiated between Jordan and county commissioners as part of his compensation package.
Jordan bought the 2,734-square-foot, two-story house in 2005 for $545,000 under a different loan, but he added upgrades such as a pool and spa that increased its value.
The county loan amount was based on the dollar value of the property from an appraisal requested by Jordan and conducted by Lang V. Nguyen Appraisal Management and Consulting Inc. in 2009.
County Assessor's Office estimates of the real market value show the property peaked in 2007 at $650,060, but by 2009 had dropped to $472,060. The most recent information from the Assessor's Office lists the real market value of the property at $369,670, or 56.5 percent of the amount the county loaned to Jordan.
The 30-year loan was financed at a 3.46 percent interest rate, the federal interest rate in 2009. Average home loan rates at the time were 5 percent. The difference shaved nearly $600 off Jordan's monthly payment, which is $2,922.
The balance remaining on the loan is $621,000. Jordan also receives a monthly $1,000 housing allowance as part of his employment contract.
Jordan stated in an email, "I feel there is nothing unusual or improper about this (the loan) as a form of negotiated compensation, and it is a practice by public bodies throughout the United States. It complies with both legal and financial accounting professional standards for the public sector."
Jordan said the interest rate he is paying was higher than the 3.24 percent rate of return on county investments at the time.
Now, because of the decline in interest rates, the county is seeing only a 1.5 percent rate of return on these other investments, he said.
"In other words, the benefit to me is I secured the loan as a part of my compensation, and the county benefits from it by the return of interest, currently at a significantly higher rate than average earnings," he stated.
Jordan declined to speak further about the loan, referring questions to the commissioners.
The loan is described in the county's Comprehensive Annual Financial Report as a receivable on the Statement of Net Assets under Note 16, "related party." (For a copy of the report, go to www.mailtribune.com/financial-report.)
It is not until pages later, when the notes are described in more detail, that the loan and interest rate are outlined.
In July 2009, four months after the loan was approved, the commissioners gave Jordan a 10 percent raise, bringing his salary to $170,060.
Commissioner C.W. Smith, who has been on the board since 2004, said the county approved Jordan's loan to increase his compensation package during a time when he was being courted by other organizations.
"We didn't even know if he was going to stay," Smith said.
Former commissioners Dave Gilmour and Jack Walker approved the loan. Walker is recovering from heart surgery and Gilmour did not respond to phone messages. Smith was speaking before the Legislature and therefore absent when the commissioners voted on Jordan's loan.
Smith said Jordan has been a dynamic and accomplished administrator who helped steer the county away from a budgetary hole to a more stable fiscal path that increased reserves.
When asked about the board order's vague wording, Smith said the county doesn't like to broadcast an employee's salary compensation.
"The point is that we do try to provide some degree of respectful privacy to employees," he said.
Smith said the loan wasn't a secret, but acknowledged it would generate heat from the public no matter how it was handled.
"I don't think we would try to make a big deal out of it," he said. "You're just opening yourself up to everybody coming out of the woods. There's always that segment of the community that isn't happy no matter how you do it."
The county routinely invests millions of dollars, gathering interest on its investments until the money needs to be spent. Unlike those investments, the money from Jordan's loan can't be tapped into as readily.
Cara Fischer, deputy director of the Association of Oregon Counties, said executive compensation that includes house loans is a fairly common practice in the corporate world, but not necessarily in local governments.
"I'm not familiar with any county in Oregon that has taken that step," she said.
In other states, she said loans to government executives are more common. The city of Aspen, Colo., for example, offers loans and has bought houses for employees, she said.
Fischer didn't rule out the possibility the practice could become more common in Oregon, particularly if executive salaries fall below those in other states.
"As government budgets become tighter and tighter, it might be incumbent on government bodies to become more and more creative about compensating employees," she said.
Commissioner Don Skundrick, who was elected last November, said Jordan is worth every penny the county gives him and believes the public has been well served by his leadership.
"In my nine months in office, he continues to just amaze me on a day-to-day basis," he said.
He credits Jordan with making Jackson County one of the most financially successful in the state. While other counties have floundered after the loss of federal timber money, Jackson County under Jordan's leadership amassed a rainy-day fund of $66 million as of last fiscal year. Without going to the voters for more taxes, the county built a 9-1-1 center, remodeled the courthouse, purchased the post office building to consolidate its health services and will build a new sheriff's headquarters in White City.
The commissioners' confidence in Jordan led to granting him new powers in 2008 to sign agreements of up to $5 million in cases of an emergency. Previously, he had the authority to sign off on contracts of $30,000 or less.
Skundrick said Jordan's knowledge and analytical skills compare favorably with even the most skilled executives he's encountered in the corporate world.
"I've told him before, 'When you walk into the room, you may be the smartest guy there,' " he said.
Skundrick said he didn't want to second-guess how the loan was handled, but said the board order regarding the loan could have been more clearly written.
"To the 99 percent of people, that could be a little muddling," he said.
He said he will strive to make the county decision-making process as transparent as possible. Skundrick said the handling of the loan wasn't accomplished in as transparent a manner as he would have liked.
"I might have done it a little differently," he said.

 

 

 

 

 

 

No Casino In Medford Oregon Said the Chief

  • Gov. Brown sends letter opposing casino

    Her letter to the Bureau of Indian Affairs said state should 'hold the line' on casinos

 

 

 

Gov. Kate Brown sent the Bureau of Indian Affairs a letter Wednesday opposing the efforts of the Coquille Indian Tribe to build a gaming facility in south Medford.
“I believe that the state should as a matter of policy resist the building of additional casinos because state support for even a single, modest additional casino is likely to lead to significant efforts to expand gaming across Oregon to the detriment of the public welfare,” Brown stated in an April 13 letter to Stan Speaks, northwest regional director of the BIA.
Despite her opposition, Brown said she believes the Coquille tribe would use the revenue generated by a Medford casino to benefit tribal members. Brown also said the proposed casino would be relatively small and would offer a more limited type of gambling experience.
Absent from Brown’s comments was any reference to the “one tribe, one casino” policy suggested by former Gov. John Kitzhaber, though she struck a similar chord.
“In essence, I believe it is essential that the state ‘hold the line’ on the number of casinos within her borders whenever possible,” Brown stated.
The tribe wants to convert the current Roxy Ann Lanes bowling alley and the former Kim's restaurant site on Highway 99 into a casino with video gaming. A casino with only video gambling is identified as a Class II gaming facility. A Class III gaming facility has video gambling as well as card games. The Coquille tribe has a Class III casino in North Bend known as The Mill Casino.
The Coquille tribe has asked the BIA to place the 2.42-acre Medford property, excluding an adjacent golf course, into a government trust. In addition, the tribe has asked the federal Office of Indian Gaming Management for an exception to a prohibition on gaming on lands acquired after October 1988.
The tribe is awaiting the BIA’s release of a draft environmental impact statement on the proposed casino, which would be called The Cedars. Publication of that document will trigger a public comment period, including a public hearing.
Despite the governor's opposition to the Coquille proposal, the Confederated Tribes of the Coos, Lower Umpqua, and Siuslaw Indians did open a second casino last year on the coast just a few miles from the Coquille’s casino.
Brenda Meade, chairwoman of the Coquille tribe, reviewed the governor’s letter late Wednesday.
“I was surprised she didn’t refer to the one-casino policy,” she said.
Meade said when she spoke with the governor last week, Brown had mentioned the one-tribe, one-casino policy, which Meade said was never really an established policy in Oregon.
Meade said she doesn’t know why her tribe’s proposal to open a second casino in Medford is being opposed by the governor’s office, particularly when the one-casino, one-tribe policy already has been broken.
“I don’t think any governor has opposed a Class II casino,” Meade said, noting that she wonders why the Coquille tribe is being singled out.
Meade said her tribe had no reservation land when the federal government recognized it in the 1989 Coquille Restoration Act, which she said defined the tribal area as five counties in Southern Oregon, including Jackson County.
Since then, the tribe has been attempting to increase its support for tribal members, noting Jackson County has the second-highest number of members after Coos County.
The Coquille’s Medford casino plans have been opposed by local government officials and by the Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Indian Tribe, which owns Seven Feathers in Canyonville.
“There has been an outcry of the Cow Creek,” Meade said. “It’s a tribe-against-tribe issue, and I don’t want that.”
The Cow Creek tribe applauded Brown’s letter Wednesday and continued to voice strong opposition to the Coquille’s proposal to build a second casino.
“The effort by the Coquille Tribe to open a second casino in Medford without any ancestral ties there is a blatant attempt to circumvent the rules,” Michael Rondeau, chief executive officer of the Cow Creek tribe, stated in a release sent out late Wednesday. “Not only would it open the door to the proliferation of gaming throughout the state without any checks and balances, but it would set dangerous precedent that could harm tribes across Indian country.”
Rondeau said the Coquille don’t have any historical ties to the Medford area, and the south Medford property shouldn’t be “restored” to them by the United States for gaming purposes.
He said the Medford casino proposal is 170 miles and approximately three hours from the Coquille’s tribal headquarters on ancestral lands.
The Cow Creek say the second casino by the Confederated Tribes of the Coos, Lower Umpqua, and Siuslaw Indians was built on ancestral land and on part of the tribe's reservation established by Congress in 1984 "

Dave Grubbs Murder. Open Unsolved Too.

 

 

Yellow journalism
In his April 8 column, Jeffrey Gillespie attempted to connect a number of unrelated dots. I disagree with his fundamental premise that the City of Ashland is flash over substance, but I recognize his right to the assertion.
But his insinuation that the Ashland Police Department prefers writing speeding tickets to solving the murder of David Grubbs cannot go unanswered. This is yellow journalism at its worst. To take a tragic event like David's death and try to spin it into some sort of breezy statement about city administration is nauseating.
I expect more from the Daily Tidings.

    Firefighter accused of theft from District 3 faces new charges in Virginia


    Posted Apr. 15, 2016 at 2:41 PM
    Updated at 2:42 PM


    A former Jackson County Fire District 3 battalion chief accused of stealing more than $2,000 from the department is now facing fraud and theft-related charges in Virginia.
    Brandon Boyd Mitchell, 43, of Fairfield, Va., has been charged with obtaining money under false pretenses and forgery of public records. A preliminary hearing on the case is scheduled for May 11, according to records from the Lexington/Rockbridge General District Court.
    Mitchell became EMS and fire chief for Rockbridge County in October 2014, five months after being arrested on the Jackson County charges. He wasn't indicted on the Oregon charges, however, until Jan. 30, 2015.
    In Virginia, Mitchell is accused of the fraudulent sale of a bank-liened vehicle and falsifying a county pay stub to show a higher salary to secure a bank loan on the vehicle.
    Mitchell is also suspected of falsifying a circuit court judge's signature on a fake court document ordering his arrest in Jackson County to be expunged, according to an April 13 story from the Lexington News-Gazette. The story says Mitchell never gave the documents to anyone, but that investigators said he likely had them just in case the issue arose. Mitchell is also suspected of forging a previous supervisor's signature on a recommendation letter, the News-Gazette reported.
    In Jackson County, Mitchell faces two counts of first-degree theft, two counts of fraudulent use of a credit card and two counts of computer crime, court records show. The charges stem from allegations that Mitchell used a District 3 credit card to make more than $2,000 in purchases twice between Sept. 1, 2013, and Feb. 20, 2014. The Jackson County District Attorney's Office also alleges Mitchell used a computer to fraudulently alter Sears and Lithia Nissan invoices.
    Mitchell was hired by District 3 as a battalion chief in July 2012 and resigned June 16, 2014, at the rank of interim operations chief. A department newsletter published after his hire says he "spent 19 years in the fire service in various capacities" before moving to Jackson County from Henry County, Ga., were he served as a battalion captain and technical rescue team coordinator.
    Court records show Mitchell pleaded not guilty to the Jackson County charges in August 2015. A plea change hearing is scheduled for Monday "

  • Ashland contractor faces federal bribery charge

    Sky of Sky Research will enter plea Monday

 

 

 

 

 

 Contractor Kickbacks Alleged:

 

 

 

 

Federal prosecutors claim an Ashland research and development firm bribed a government official for help in acquiring nine U.S. Army Corps of Engineers contracts worth $171 million.
The claim was made Thursday in the first filing in federal court on the case in three years. Sky Research Inc.'s owner, who goes by the single name Sky, is scheduled to enter a plea at 11 a.m. Monday in U.S. District Court in Portland before Judge Marco A. Hernandez.
Federal prosecutors have been investigating Sky Research, whose headquarters are located near the Ashland airport, since 2010. In March 2012, federal agents seized thousands of payroll, tax and personal finance documents as well as digital data and other items from the company offices and the home of Sky and his wife, Anne Sky, in 1000 block of East Main Street.
Sky Research Inc. specializes in aerial mapping, geophysical surveys and remote sensing, and developed equipment for detecting unexploded material. The company's products were put to use in decommissioned military ranges and other areas that could harbor live munitions.
Prosecutors intend to seek a charge of conspiracy to defraud the United States against Sky Research Inc., also known as SRI, according to documents filed in U.S. District Court in Portland. They allege SRI bribed Jerry Hodgson, Corps program manager who oversaw the Department of Defense's Military Munitions Response Program in Omaha, Neb., with trips and other gifts over 11 years in exchange for steering $171 million worth of contracts to the company. SRI received $77 million total under the nine contracts, the latest court filing states.
The bribes included a car, an Alaskan fishing expedition, meals and accommodations in Costa Rica and Vietnam and $4,000 in cash, among other items, according to Thursday's filing. Affidavits filed also allege the Skys provided Hodgson with three personal assistants over a span of eight years to fulfill sexual favors for him.
The earlier affidavits allege Hodgson's insider help on the company's bids was so well known that some employees used the term "Jerrying it" when referring to an upcoming contract the company intended to fix.
Sky could not be reached for comment. His wife, Anne Sky, told The Oregonian she could not comment when reached Thursday. She is listed as the company's vice president. "

Marshall McKenna & Cowardly Cohorts

 

Second defendant in deadly ripoff at Lake Selmac gets 15 years

 

By Chris Bristol
Grants Pass Daily Courier
 
Posted Apr. 22, 2016 at 4:57 PM

 

The second of three men from Texas accused of participating in a deadly marijuana ripoff at Lake Selmac will spend the next 15 years in prison — after he testifies against the third suspect, accused trigger man Marshall McKenna.
Carroll Eugene Ballard, 23, faced a minimum of 25 years in prison for murder for his role in the slaying of 43-year-old Roger E. Huntington, who was found shot to death in his SUV near a boat ramp at the lake 25 miles southwest of Grants Pass last October.
Instead, Ballard cut a deal with prosecutors, agreeing to testify against McKenna in exchange for a sentence of 15 years to an amended charge of first-degree manslaughter as well as first-degree robbery.
Authorities allege the slaying was precipitated by a robbery, and in court Thursday Ballard's lawyer acknowledged his client and his cohorts had "bad intentions."
Murder, however, was not on the agenda — at least for Ballard and the third man, 21-year-old Blake Raymond Sibley, according to Ballard's attorney, Joseph G. Maier.
"Neither had intention that Roger would be killed," Maier told Josephine County Circuit Court Judge Lindi Baker, adding that murder "was the furthest thing from their minds that afternoon."
Ballard was the second defendant to cut a deal against McKenna, who is charged with aggravated murder. Last month, Sibley pleaded guilty to a charge of first-degree manslaughter and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Sibley and Ballard were picked up within days of the discovery of Huntington's body. McKenna was arrested earlier this month in Texas after more than five months on the lam.
The trio, all from the Forth Worth, Texas, area, apparently had arranged to meet Huntington, a native of the Northern California coast, at Lake Selmac to conduct a transaction involving pounds of marijuana. Authorities have not publicly acknowledged that aspect of the case, but lawyers and family members of the victim have said so.
Even though recreational use of marijuana is now legal in Oregon, it remains off-limits in most of the rest of the country, including Texas. Owing to the basic rule of supply and demand, so-called "dark marijuana" from Oregon continues to fetch much higher prices in other places.
"They were caught up in the drug culture and the promise of easy money," Maier told the court Thursday.
"A stupid stunt for selfish reasons destroyed all our families," was how Huntington's sister-in-law, Shari Mott, explained it to the court.
Mott was one of several of Huntington's family members who attended Ballard's hearing Thursday. They held up pictures of the victim throughout the proceeding.
Huntington's niece, Amber Miller, told the defendant that her uncle was a "constant" in the family's life. Other family members described Huntington as funny and gregarious.
"We lost that — over drugs," Miller said.
Ballard, the only defendant in the case with an apparent connection to Southern Oregon, apologized to the victim's family, saying he was "deeply sorry." Court records indicate Ballard, who goes by the nickname BJ, was living in Eagle Point in 2014, and a reference was made in court Thursday to his mother living in Yreka, Calif.
"This was a thing I never ever intended on happening," he said, adding that even after he is released from prison, "I have to live with this for the rest of my life."
His plea leaves McKenna's as the only case pending. Captured earlier this month in Texas near the Mexican border, McKenna is charged with aggravated murder with a firearm, first-degree robbery and unlawful use of a weapon.
He is also charged with second-degree assault with a firearm — authorities allege he pistol-whipped Huntington during the robbery before shooting him in the head.
Deputy prosecutor Lisa Turner told the court McKenna is still in the process of being extradited to Oregon. Once he's here, she said, Ballard is expected to testify against him.
"I will file charges if he (Ballard) does not cooperate," she vowed to the court.

EUGENE, Ore. — A southern Oregon family has pleaded not guilty to charges that it filled its U.S. military defense contracts with defective knockoffs rather than government-specified parts for Army helicopters and trucks — including a critical helicopter part.
The Eugene Register-Guard reports that a federal judge entered the plea on behalf of Harold Ray Bettencourt Jr., his ex-wife and three of the couple's adult children on Tuesday.
The family faces charges that include conspiracy to commit wire fraud and money laundering.
Two other longtime employees of Bettencourt's Coos Bay company, Kustom Products Inc., also were arraigned Tuesday in the case. All seven remain free.
According to a federal grand jury indictment, Bettencourt's firm collected more than $7.5 million in government payments after selling "nonconforming, defective and counterfeit products" to the U.S. Department of Defense on at least 392 occasions. "

 TRUTH AND FACTS NEVER CHANGE:
 

Coos Bay Company, Its Owner, and

Four Employees Plead Guilty to Fraud on Defense Contracts

U.S. Attorney’s Office July 18, 2014
  • District of Oregon (503) 727-1000

PORTLAND, OR—A Coos Bay business, its owner, and four employees pled guilty before the Honorable Michael J. Mosman in federal court today to conspiracy to defraud the United States. Kustom Products, Inc. (KPI), a vehicle parts supply business located in Coos Bay, Oregon, its owner, and four employees admitted that they committed fraud on contracts with the United States Department of Defense (DOD).

Pleading guilty were the owner of KPI, Harold Ray Bettencourt II, 60, of Coos Bay, Oregon; his sons, Bo Bettencourt, 34, Nicholas Ryan Bettencourt, 32, and Peter Tracy Bettencourt, 28, of North Bend, Oregon; and KPI’s office manager, Margo Antoinette Densmore, 43, also of Coos Bay, Oregon. The matter is scheduled for sentencing on December 10 and 11, 2014. All defendants were released on conditions pending sentencing.

The United States Attorney charged that KPI, Bettencourt, and the others conspired to commit wire fraud, money laundering, and trafficking in counterfeit goods and services. As part of the plea, the defendants agreed to forfeit all proceeds traceable to the fraud, including $365,503.26 in funds from 20 bank accounts, eight vehicles, one boat, two boat trailers, two jet skis, and three all-terrain vehicles.

Amanda Marshall, United States Attorney for the District of Oregon, emphasized the serious nature of the charges. “The actions of these defendants in putting their own greed before the safety of military personnel warrant serious repercussions,” Marshall stated. “We will bring the full extent of this criminal activity to the Court’s attention during the sentencing hearing.”

The defendants’ scheme, as laid out in Court during the guilty plea hearing, related to the defendant’s actions while contracting to provide supplies to the Department of Defense (DOD) from approximately 2006 through 2010. The DOD sought equipment, supplies, and services that were filled through purchase orders awarded to DOD contractors, including KPI. Some of these products were identified as critical application items, meaning that they were items essential to weapons systems performance or operation, or to preserve the life and safety of military personnel. The contracts were awarded through a web-based posting of contract solicitations. Each contained the specific details about the items to be procured, including the requirements related to the specific part desired by Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) part number and by approved OEM vendor, whether the part was a critical application, and whether the part was required to be manufactured in the United States. In solicitations for specific products, the contractor was required to supply the “exact product” and to certify that fact by stating that the bid was “without exception.” The solicitation made clear that submitting alternate products could result in criminal and civil penalties.

KPI, acting through the individual defendants, lied to the DOD in order to secure what the government found to include 750 fraudulent contracts with a value in excess of $10,000,000 and used wire communications in interstate and foreign commerce to carry out the scheme. In addition, the defendants knowingly engaged in approximately $8,000,000 in monetary transactions in amounts greater than $10,000 derived from the wire fraud scheme. Finally, in some contracts, the defendants supplied counterfeit Freightliner parts and shipped some parts on pallets that falsely contained the logo and heat treatment certification stamp of Timber Products Inspection, Inc. In essence, the defendants bid to supply a specific OEM part from an approved vendor at a price consistent with an OEM part, but instead knowingly provided a knock-off part from an unapproved vendor that cost them significantly less. This allowed them to under-bid the competition, and generated substantial profits for KPI and the individual defendants.

To highlight one contract, the United States set out the defendants’ actions related to the provision of aviation locknuts. In 2008, KPI was awarded contracts to supply aviation locknuts to the DOD, which were used to secure the blades to the main rotary assembly of the Kiowa Helicopter. The locknuts were flight critical and of proprietary design to be acquired from only two approved manufacturers, SPS or Bristol Industries. Rather than obtain the locknuts from one of the approved sources, Nicholas Bettencourt contacted Coloc Manufacturing in Texas and arranged with them to make and deliver thousands of non-conforming locknuts for fulfillment of the contract. Coloc was unaware that the parts they were contracted to manufacture were proprietary and were to be used in a flight-critical military application. In August 2008, the defective locknuts were detected throughout the military supply chain, which triggered the issuance of a DOD-wide safety alert, a worldwide inspection of all aircraft and stockpiles. After DOD notified KPI about the defective parts, Nicholas Bettencourt provided the DOD officials with false information in an attempt to cover up the acquisition of the defective locknuts.

KPI was also contacted by a DOD inspector, who requested KPI officials provide a written response as to the cause of the deficiency. KPI, through employee Josh Kemp, provided the DOD with a false explanation as to why the locknuts were not in compliance with the contract requirements, explaining that the parts were pulled from the wrong storage bin.

Even after the defendants were notified of the deficiency, instead of replacing the defective parts with authentic parts from the approved manufacturers, they went back to Coloc and directed them to re-machine another batch of non-conforming locknuts to more closely resemble the authentic part. The additional defective locknuts were shipped to the DOD, all with complete disregard for the contract specifications on this critical application and the potential for catastrophic failure to the helicopter and injury or death to the occupants as a result.

Again, when the second batch of defective locknuts were detected in the supply chain, DOD officials requested acquisition records from KPI. In response, Nicholas Bettencourt, in conjunction with Margo Densmore, created false records that reflected that the correct parts were ordered by KPI and supplied to the military. Several more requests for records were made by DOD officials, and in response to these requests, Harold Bettencourt II provided the DOD with falsified records and false explanations as to the origin of the defective locknuts. KPI, through Margo Densmore, altered purchase orders to indicate that the correct parts were ordered, and produced those altered documents to DOD officials and investigators. Harold Bettencourt II also provided DOD officials with these false purchase orders and provided DOD officials with a price quote from a parts dealer for authentic conforming parts that KPI never actually ordered. Harold Bettencourt II obtained this quote for the purpose of deceiving the DOD into believing that the correct parts had been ordered.

The United States alleged that these actions by the defendants compromised the integrity of the aviation supply chain and put service members in harm’s way by knowingly placing defective and unsafe aviation components into the supply chain and attempting to conceal their actions by falsifying records, and misleading DOD officials and investigators with false statements and information.

“The guilty pleas of the owners and operators of Kustom Products, Inc. (KPI) are part of an ongoing effort by the Defense Criminal Investigative Service and its law enforcement partners to bring to justice to individuals who seek unjust enrichments at the expense of U.S. taxpayers, while recklessly compromising the safety of U.S. service members,” said Chris Hendrickson, Special Agent in Charge, DCIS Western Field Office. “This is an unfortunate example of a dishonest contractor who disregarded safety and profited through risking the lives of our troops by knowingly placing faulty and unsafe parts and equipment, including flight critical components, into the military supply chain. This plea serves as notice that these types of practices by a contractor will be fully investigated and punishment pursued.”

“The financial cost of this fraud – more than $10 million – is significant, but the human cost could have been much higher,” said Greg Bretzing, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI in Oregon. “The counterfeit hardware that Kustom Products passed off as real could have led to catastrophic failures of trucks and helicopters used by our military. This case shows that we – with many partners at the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security as well as the IRS – will not allow anyone to make what they believe to be an easy buck on the backs of our service members.”

“As a law enforcement official I’m proud that my agents helped bring these criminals to justice, and as a Veteran it is hurtful to see profit put before the safety of our nation’s most precious treasure, our sons and daughters,” said Special Agent in Charge Kenneth Hines of IRS Criminal Investigation. “These crooks took deliberate actions to supply defective equipment to our military, putting our service men and women in harm’s way during a time of war. Then, they spun a web of complex lies to cover it all up. This a clear message from the IRS and DOD-OIG Special Agents and the United States Attorney’s Office that this will not happen on our watch. If your actions harm or place our military service members at risk, we will bring you to justice.”

The case is being investigated by the Department of Defense/Office of Inspector General/Defense Criminal Investigative Service, the Army Criminal Investigative Division Major Procurement Fraud Unit, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Internal Revenue Service, Criminal Investigation Division, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Scott Eric Asphaug. "

  • IRON 44 FIRE CRASH

    Co-conspirator gets 25 months in prison in Carson Helicopter crash case

 

 

  - - -- -

Carson Helicopter's maintenance director was sentenced today to more than two years in federal prison for his role in lying to the Forest Service about helicopter flying capabilities that helped contribute to 2008's crash that killed nine people assigned to Northern California's Iron 44 fire.
Levi Phillips created a formula to fraudulently compute helicopter weights that didn't match the machines' true weights and carrying capacities to land the Forest Service's lucrative firefighting contracts for which the company truly would not have been qualified even to bid.
Carson Vice President Steven Metheny used Phillips' formula for computing the fake data for the helicopter that crashed on the Iron 44 fire — an airship pilots and safety experts at the scene never would have been allowed to launch if they knew the machine's true specifications, court documents state.
Phillips was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Medford about an hour after Metheny was sentenced to 12 1/2 years in prison for his role in the deadliest helicopter crash involving wildland firefighters in U.S. history.
Phillips' sentence was lesser, in part, to his cooperation with federal authorities against Metheny, and his cooperation was deemed pivotal in unraveling the conspiracy, court papers state.
After a string of friends and family testified today to what a stand-up and community guy Phillips is, U.S. District Chief Judge Ann Aiken said she was sentencing Phillips as a man who committed the crime and not the Boy Scout troop leader and family man who otherwise kept his nose clean.
Aiken told Phillips that he could have stood up and stopped Metheny in this deadly conspiracy, but acquiesced and then "put the mask of the good guy back on" at home.
"You'd be a model citizen in this community but for the egregious actions that got you here today," Aiken said.
"When did everybody become 'yes people'?" Aiken said. "Courage is a little used virtue anymore."
Phillips earlier pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and his 25-month sentence today was in the middle of the 21-month to 27-month range advised under federal sentencing guidelines.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Byron Chatfield said outside of court that, though Phillips helped unravel the conspiracy, the government would have gone through with prosecuting the case but that his aid "made it much more quickly resolved."
Phillips and Metheny were each given until Aug. 17 to report to federal prison. Both requested housing in the correctional facility in Sheridan."

    Ashland defense contractor pleads guilty to bribery charge

-

 SKY  RESEARCH #CREEPY #BEYOND GREEDY #GUILTY

-

 

  - - Sky Research. From the beginning: SKY disgraces SKY.

William Henry Hovelman jr.    Disgraceful. 

 

 

 

 

PORTLAND — " An Ashland defense contractor acknowledged Monday that he bribed a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers program manager to secure $171 million in contracts over a decade.
The 73-year-old contractor, who goes by the singular name Sky, pleaded guilty in federal court to conspiracy and could face a maximum of five years in prison at his Oct. 11 sentencing. Lawyers for both sides indicated a sentence of about two years is more likely.
Sky — who changed his name from William Hovelman — did not say much in court, beyond answering procedural questions from U.S. District Court Judge Marco A. Hernandez. He and his attorney, Michael Levine, declined comment outside the courtroom.
The judge gave Sky permission to make a planned trip outside the U.S.
Federal prosecutors have been investigating Sky Research, whose headquarters are located near the Ashland airport, since 2010. In March 2012, federal agents seized thousands of payroll, tax and personal finance documents as well as digital data and other items from the company offices and the home of Sky and his wife, Anne Sky, in 1000 block of East Main Street.
Sky Research Inc. specializes in aerial mapping, geophysical surveys and remote sensing, and developed equipment for detecting unexploded material. The company's products were put to use in decommissioned military ranges and other areas that could harbor live munitions.
Court documents say Jerry Hodgson, a program manager for the Army Corps in Nebraska, rigged bids on nine contracts. The bribes included a car, an Alaskan fishing expedition, meals and accommodations in Costa Rica and Vietnam and $4,000 in cash, among other items, according to prosecutors. Affidavits filed in 2012 also allege the Skys provided Hodgson with three personal assistants over a span of eight years to fulfill sexual favors for him.
Hodgson has not been charged in the case and a phone number for him could not be found. Andrew Strotman, his attorney when the case became public in 2012, did not immediately return a phone message.
Thomas O'Hara, an Army Corps spokesman, said Hodgson was "let go" several years ago and declined further comment.
Affidavits filed to obtain the search warrants in 2012 outlined much of the investigation. U.S. Army Special Agent Derek W. Lindbom wrote that an informant contacted the Army's inspector general in 2010 to report that Hodgson had returned contract bids to Sky Research with instructions on how to change the forms to win the bids.
 
Hodgson told investigators he considered Sky a good friend and acknowledged vacationing with him, the affidavits said. Shown invoices from the Alaska fishing trip paid for by Sky, Hodgson said he paid him back in cash but couldn't remember from which account the money had been withdrawn"

MEDFORD, Ore. -- Citizens for Constitutional Fairness filed a complaint against the Jackson County Administrator Danny Jordan and the Jackson County Auditor Eric Spivak for conducting prohibited political activities on the clock. 

The group filed the complaint on Friday to the Secretary of State Elections Division. According to the complaint, "Jackson County employees have engaged in election related activities which oppose the re-election of the incumbent and which were conducted in county offices during work hours."

Citzens For Constitutional Fairness (CFCF) believes county officials are trying to interfere with the re-election of Jackson County Commissioner Doug Breidenthal. The group brought up four allegations that led them to believe officials were violating Oregon Election laws.

"The primary is just a few weeks away. We think it needs to be at least a chilling effect and whatever is going won't happen between now and the election," said David Smith. 

Smith noted on October 2015, Breidenthal made an announcement to run for re-election. Soon after, a complaint was filed with the Oregon Government Ethics Commission (OGEC) alleging Breidenthal had violated state's ethic laws. CFCF said the complaint was signed by Jackson County Auditor Eric Spivak. The group believes the complaint was drafted during business hours. 

The elections division is gathering information to conduct a formal investigation into the allegations. 

For the full complaint, view below:

COMPLAINT

There is currently a contested primary election for county commissioner in Jackson County.   The incumbent is seeking nomination to be the Republican candidate in the general election.   There are two other candidates seeking the nomination.

Certain Jackson County employees have engaged in election related activities which oppose the re-election of the incumbent and which were conducted in county offices during work hours.   The following allegations, are based upon personal knowledge, newspaper articles, radio talk show archives, and other information furnished by credible individuals.   We are confident that an investigation conducted  by your office will confirm the accuracy of the allegations and conclude that there are actionable violations of Oregon election laws committed by County Administrator Danny Jordan and County Auditor Eric Spivak, and, perhaps other county employees acting under their direction.

ALLEGATIONS:

1.   On October 22, 2015, following the announcement  that county commissioner Doug Breidenthal intended to run for re-election, a complaint was filed with the Oregon Government Ethics Commission (OGEC) alleging that the incumbent candidate had violated Oregon ethics law.   The complaint filed with OGEC primarily alleged violations related to the commissioner's successful 2014 campaign for the vice presidency of the Western Interstate Region(WIR) of the National Association of Counties(NACo).   The complaint was signed by the Jackson County auditor, an appointed employee.   The complaint was drafted during working hours and appears to have been prepared as an official act of the auditor who is supervised by the county administrator.    Meetings regarding the ethics complaint have been reported by the Mail Tribune newspaper which meetings took place in the county court house among the auditor, administrator and county counsel.   The county commissioner candidate was summoned to a meeting with the same individuals on October 21, 2015 and advised that the complaint prepared by the county employees was going to be filed.

2.   In January of 2016  the county auditor appeared on local radio station KMED and was interviewed with respect to the allegations in the ethics complaint.   The auditor responded to questioning by the KMED interviewer.  He alleged that he acted alone in the filing of the complaint, however, in an interview reported in the local newspaper he is quoted as admitting that were others involved, including the county administrator and the county legal counsel( who was hired by the county administrator).

 

3.  Over the course of the last several months numerous  newspaper articles and other media reports have followed press releases emanating from county offices, all of which have had the effect of interfering with the commissioner/candidate's re-election bid.

 

4.  On occasions when the commissioner/candidate has appeared on local radio station KMED County Administrator Danny Jordan has called into the live program and challenged the veracity of statements made by the  commissioner/candidate.   Credible individuals have disclosed that the county administrator, during working hours, has been soliciting county employees and officials to oppose the re-election of the commissioner/candidate.  The veracity of the information regarding his conduct during this election is supported by statements of credible individuals that the county administrator engaged in similar conduct, soliciting county employees to defeat another commissioner candidate, during the 2014 election.   His activity, although unsuccessful (the candidate was elected) demonstrates a pattern of engaging in political activity which is prohibited by ORS 260.432

ORS 260.432 is required  to be posted at the work place of government employees to prohibit unlawful election activity.   In pertinent part the required notice states:

 ATTENTION ALL PUBLIC EMPLOYEES:  The restrictions imposed by the law of the State of Oregon on your political activities are that "No public employee shall...promote or oppose the nomination or election of a candidate,   "

ALLEGATIONS:

1.   On October 22, 2015, following the announcement  that county commissioner Doug Breidenthal intended to run for re-election, a complaint was filed with the Oregon Government Ethics Commission (OGEC) alleging that the incumbent candidate 

All of the above activity appears to be  representative of  political action, directed from behind closed doors in the county administrator's office, designed to defeat the re-election of the commissioner/candidate in direct violation of Oregon ORS 260.432.   It also appears that ORS 260.665(2)(d) has been violated. 

In the event that some of the above allegations may involve the jurisdiction of OGEC  a copy of this complaint is being forwarded to OGEC.  If a violation of ORS 260.665(2)(d), a class C felony, is beyond your jurisdiction please advise if  this complaint should also be referred to the Oregon Department of Justice or another appropriate agency.

Complaint filed against Jackson County officials

JACKSON COUNTY COMMISSIONERS

 Danny Jordan...   and  the current Commish (who did not sign the employee  contract $$$ )

 

 

" Salem, Ore. — A non-profit files a complaint with the Secretary of State’s office claiming two Jackson County officials violated Oregon Election Laws, this, just weeks before the May 17th primary.

The complaint filed Friday by Citizens for Constitutional Fairness alleges that Jackson County Administrator Danny Jordan and County Auditor Eric Spivak have violated Oregon Election Law in an effort to de-rail Commissioner Doug Breidenthal’s bid for re-election.

The complaint reads in part, “certain Jackson County employees have engaged in election related activities which oppose the re-election of the incumbent and which were conducted in county offices during work hours.”

The news reached out to Jackson County Administrator Danny Jordan and County Auditor Eric Spivak for comment. In a statement, Spivak says “I believe that the principles of transparency and accountability require that the county carry on its day to day operations regardless of whether an elected official is campaigning for re-election. I do not consider any of my actions to be politically motivated and I have not made any comments promoting or opposing the nomination or election of a candidate. ”

County Administrator Danny Jordan says if an investigation is launched he is confident the elections division will find that he acted appropriately in his capacity as County Administrator."

The World’s Largest Firefighting Tool Took to the Air Today

The World’s Largest Firefighting Tool Took to the Air Today

May 5, 2016

Oregon aviation pioneer Del Smith died almost two years ago but one of his biggest dreams takes flight this week.  

Smith built Evergreen Helicopter, founded 66 years ago, into a worldwide air cargo business that spanned the world from Beijing, to Dubai, to its home in McMinnville, Oregon. He spent 50 million dollars of his own money to create the biggest airborne firefighting platform based on a 747 cargo jet that dwarfed other planes. It fought wildfires in Mexico and Israel, but America’s federal government refused to use it. Del died and the plane disappeared in a bankruptcy.  

This week, Global Supertanker, the company that bought Evergreen’s assets, rolls out Del’s dream; a new version of the 747 firefighting plane. It can lay down tens of thousands of gallons, literally miles of water or retardant to stop a blaze and save lives; just in time for this year’s fire season. When the fires are out, the plane is capable of hydro seeding new grass and trees, quickly and economically.

Somewhere up there in Heaven, I think Del Smith is smiling.

Global Supertanker’s Jim Wheeler joined me on the show to discuss the flight of the firefighting 747:

Global SuperTanker's Spirit of John Muir Comes Home to Colorado Springs

May 05, 2016, 14:00 ET from Global SuperTanker Services, LLC

 

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., May 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The world's largest, fastest, and longest-range aerial firefighting asset celebrated its official homecoming in Colorado Springs this morning.

Global SuperTanker Services, LLC's Spirit of John Muir dazzled nearly 300 guests with a low fly by, at just 400 feet, and a demonstration drop of nearly 10,000 gallons of water. The converted 747-400, a Very Large Air Tanker (VLAT), will be soon be available to the hardworking men and women of the U.S. Forest Service and emergency responders across the country as they continue to fight the ever-growing threat of wildfires.

-

Following the drop, John Hickenlooper, Governor of Colorado; Doug Lamborn, U.S. Representative for Colorado's 5th Congressional District; and John Suthers, Mayor of Colorado Springs, addressed a crowd of aviation, firefighting, and U.S. Forest Service leaders. Global SuperTanker executives, including CEO Jim Wheeler, also spoke, as did Harry Toll of Alterna Capital LLC, Global SuperTanker's shareholder.

Marking the occasion, Governor John Hickenlooper stated, "The Spirit of John Muir is an important new asset supporting the men and women engaged in the herculean task of firefighting. We are pleased it is based here in Colorado. It represents a significant opportunity and will be an unparalleled asset in combatting fire around the world."

2015 was one of the most devastating wildfire seasons in American history, with more than 10 million acres of land burned and billions of dollars of damage inflicted on homes and property. The U.S. Forest Service has warned that this record may not stand for long: fire seasons are starting earlier and burning longer every year. Already in 2016, millions of lives and livelihoods have been threatened by serious fires in Virginia, Oklahoma, and Kansas: elsewhere in North America, wildfire rages in Alberta.

The Spirit of John Muir is the world's youngest VLAT, and has almost twice the capacity of the next biggest aerial tanker. The John Muir is capable of delivering single or multiple drops of nearly 20,000 gallons of water or fire retardant, either of which can be released at variable rates, producing a tailored response to the firefighting need.

Congressman Lamborn said, "Thank you to President Jim Wheeler and the entire team for your willingness to step forward and provide this fantastic aircraft that will help protect lives and property all over the world."

"The Spirit of John Muir differs from other firefighting planes not just because it is capable of variable rate drops," said Jim Wheeler, President and CEO of Global SuperTanker, "as the world's largest aerial firefighting asset, the John Muir can fly 600 miles per hour for long ranges at efficient altitudes, reaching and combatting any fire in the Western U.S. in less than three hours."

"The converted 747 can stand ready on the ramp at its home-base, Colorado Springs, fully loaded and able to respond on very short notice," continued Wheeler.

Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers commented at the launch, "We are honored to serve as the home for this firefighting resource, and are appreciative that the John Muir has chosen Colorado Springs Airport as its home. Having witnessed several devastating wildfire events in and around our city, I know I speak for the residents, our fire department, and people across the region when I say, we are very glad to have this resource headquartered here. Further, the arrival of this global supertanker is yet another nod to our growing airport operations."

The Spirit of John Muir's firefighting scope isn't limited to the U.S.: from Colorado Springs, the plane can fly anywhere in the world in under 20 hours. "Longer and more destructive fire seasons are a global problem, and Global SuperTanker can deliver a global, rapid solution," CEO of Global Super Tankers Jim Wheeler noted.

Wheeler, an experienced leader in the logistics and transportation fields, heads a respected and experienced team: Global SuperTanker's management brings together a combined 259 years of aviation and related wildfire fighting experience.

"The proven technology behind the Spirit of John Muir could not have been implemented without the immensely talented team at Global SuperTanker, as well as the support of the state of Colorado and city of Colorado Springs," said Harry Toll, Managing Partner of Alterna Capital Partners LLC, whose portfolio company, Cyterna Air, LLC, owns Global SuperTanker.

"Fighting wildfires has many similarities to a military operation. The frontline ground teams and smokejumpers, incident management, support teams and equipment, and range of air assets, including different types and sizes of helicopter and fixed wing aircraft, all work together to fight as a team, protecting people, forests, and property. We are proud to be able to add a more powerful tool to support them when needed," continued Toll.

 

 

 

 

 

Lawsuits Fly as Evergreen Tanks

 

 Everything old is new again:

 

 

Lawsuits fly as Evergreen International Airlines fights for survival 

 

 -

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Marriott Anchorage Downtown claims Evergreen International Airlines Inc. owes it more than $77,000 in unpaid room charges.

A United Arab Emirates company is suing Evergreen for $5.4 million, claiming the McMinnville-based airline never paid it for air cargo missions in Afghanistan.

A Florida freight forwarder is suing for $2.1 million, seeking a refund for cargo flights Evergreen allegedly canceled. Hellmann Worldwide Logistics Inc. accuses the airline of fraud, saying it’s now evident from parent company chief executive Delford M. Smith’s statements that the freight carrier is in financial danger and managers knew they couldn’t provide the promised flights.

Together, these and other suits filed against Evergreen reveal an airline in a tailspin, scrambling for cash and often failing to show up in court to defend itself as its 83-year-old leader fights to regain control. Smith has averted disaster many times in more than five decades of management, but people close to Evergreen believe that this time his privately held corporate group is crashing.

 

 

  - -

 “I think it’s not going to work this time,” said Harold D. “Don” New, a former Evergreen vice president of marketing and sales and longtime Smith confidant. “He’s leveraged that company ever since it started, and cash flow always took care of it. But there isn’t any cash flow and they’re caving in on him.”

Closure of the airline would end a half century of intrigue surrounding a company that earned $557 million in revenue and $35 million in profits as recently as 2007. In its heyday, Evergreen fielded a fleet of Boeing 747 freighters that continuously circled the globe, delivering both military and civilian cargo.

Evergreen’s shadowy CIA ties and its secretive foreign missions gave the company based in Oregon’s wine country an aura of mystery that its gruff, hard-charging founder did little to dispel. Smith made a fortune trading planes and building his business empire, then plowed millions into quirky tourist attractions such as a waterpark topped by a 747 jet and an aircraft museum anchored by Howard Hughes’ legendary Spruce Goose.

But the proliferating lawsuits and the loss of the airline’s crown-jewel helicopter unit are clipping its wings. One group of creditors tried to repossess a Gulf Stream jet from Evergreen. Another got a court to order immediate return of a Bell 206B helicopter and payment of back rent at $8,380 a month. Others made the company pay more than $270,000 for aircraft repairs.

Creditors may be rushing to file claims before Evergreen files Chapter 7 bankruptcy, a move that would block suits and put a trustee in place for an orderly liquidation. Evergreen’s human resources manager told state officials Nov. 7 the company would terminate all operations at the end of this month.

Evergreen scrambles for cash
Evergreen International Airlines was so desperate for cash last year as it prepared to sell its helicopter division that the company took out an expensive loan and then defaulted.
Court documents show that James J. Wheeler, airline president and chief executive officer, signed a promissory note Nov. 30, 2012, to borrow $3,476,208.43 from ST Aerospace Services Co. The Singapore company, known as SASCO, would charge 1 percent interest a month and require Evergreen to make payments of $50,000 a week to an Alabama partner.
But Evergreen missed its very first $50,000 payment, which was due Dec. 7, 2012. SASCO moved aggressively, sending a fax, email and certified letter seeking payment. When Evergreen still didn’t pay by Dec. 20, the total loan amount came due, plus interest.
SASCO sued. Evergreen, racing to negotiate sale of the helicopter unit to Erickson Air-Crane Inc., never paid a penny on the promissory note. Neither did the airline send a lawyer to U.S. District Court in Alabama to defend itself.
So on March 1, Chief U.S. District Judge William Steele ordered Evergreen to pay SASCO $3,584,041.01 in principal, interest and late charges.
On March 19, Evergreen announced the sale of its helicopter division to Erickson for as much as $276 million. The sale gave the strapped airline breathing room, allowing it to pay SASCO and other creditors.
Yet evidently $276 million wasn’t enough. Evergreen parent company chief executive Del Smith told The Oregonian at the time that total debt was roughly $300 million. Seven months later Evergreen’s human resources manager told state officials the airline planned to cease operations Nov. 30.
-- Richard Read

But in a statement on the company Web site Nov. 8, Smith said rumors that the company would close were false. He has not returned multiple calls from The Oregonian.

Tim Wahlberg, who stepped down in February as president and chairman of Evergreen International Aviation, said he was surprised by the closure announcement, having thought that sale of the helicopter unit would address the debt problems. He believes Smith will fight hard to save the company.

“I was with him for 43-and-a-half years,” Wahlberg said. “He’s a go-getter, he’s a tiger. If he thinks there’s a way, he’s certainly going to do what he can to make it work.”

The airline’s fate largely depends on the military, said Wahlberg, noting financial pressures from sequestration and cost-cutting. “If the military decides they’re going to make a change in how they’re going to move equipment and people, it’s really going to have an effect on all the carriers that provide those services.”

The military air cargo sector has essentially dried up with the wind-down of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, said airline analyst Mike Boyd, president of Boyd Group International in Evergreen, Colo. North American Airlines and Ryan International Airlines both filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

“That whole sector of air transportation has basically dried up,” Boyd said. “And there’s nothing on the horizon to see it coming back.”

Yet Evergreen still pursues military work. Last month the company won a $142 million military contract for international airlift services along with four other airlines.

Evergreen International Aviation, listed by city officials as having 463 workers in McMinnville, has been one of the community’s largest employers. But layoffs, furloughs and the helicopter division sale may already have drastically reduced the workforce.

Recently Evergreen sold off more assets, ranging from a sprawling Arizona aircraft maintenance center to McMinnville-area farmland. But the bleeding continues.

The airline is losing the ability to generate sales. It no longer operates from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, for example, which until a few weeks ago had been an important hub.

Larry Wood, the executive director of the company’s Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum says the nonprofit business – including the water park and an IMAX theater – will survive. But others say that’s an open question, considering Smith’s heavy personal financial support over the years and an ongoing investigation by the Oregon Department of Justice into allegations that Evergreen’s commercial and nonprofit ventures comingled funds.

A giant Boeing 747-212B Evergreen cargo jet sits out front of the museum, perhaps to be incorporated somehow into a planned hotel with a delayed construction date. The nonprofits employ about 65 and attract about 275,000 visitors a year.

Suits filed against the company seek damages ranging from thousands to millions of dollars. They originate everywhere from Oregon to far-flung countries, opening windows into the operations of a company that rakes in money but spends millions of dollars a month on loan payments, aircraft leases and repairs.

In New York, Wells Fargo Bank sued Evergreen in August saying it agreed to lease the company two aircraft engines for $60,000 a month each. Evergreen stopped paying the monthly rent for the first engine in January 2012, Wells Fargo contends.

Evergreen installed the engine on a plane that went to a repair shop in Xiamen, China, according to the suit. Evergreen didn’t pay for the repair work, so the shop didn’t release the aircraft, which has been held in China since at least December 2012, Wells Fargo said.

Evergreen lawyers never answered Wells Fargo’s complaint, so the U.S. District Court for the southern district of New York issued a default judgment Oct. 29 ordering the airline to pay more than $4.3 million to the bank.

In Florida, a company called High Standard Aviation had a contract with Evergreen to repair and overhaul Boeing 747 cargo jets operated by the airline. Ametek HSA Inc., which acquired High Standard’s assets, sued Evergreen International Airlines in federal court last year, seeking more than $159,000 plus interest for services rendered.

By Feb. 26, Evergreen had failed to plead, defend or otherwise appear, and the time for doing so had expired, according to a ruling by U.S. District Judge Michael Mosman.

Mosman ordered Evergreen to pay up. The company did so by June 18, court filings show.

Likewise, U.S. District Judge Anna Brown made Evergreen pay more than $113,000 to Genesis Aviation Inc., a North Carolina company that performed repairs. And the U.S. Eastern District Court of New York ordered Evergreen to pay $3.9 million to Israel Aircraft Industries for aircraft repair and maintenance.

Evergreen lawyers also failed to defend the company this year in a suit brought by Air Partner, a company based in Gatwick, England. Evergreen must pay the company more than $204,000 for aviation fuel, according to a Nov. 4 default judgment.

One reason Evergreen didn’t defend itself in suits may have been the firing of its chief counsel in July 2011. Monique DeSpain then sued Evergreen International Aviation and its then president, Wahlberg, accusing them of sex discrimination and other offenses. The case, which dragged on until August, was settled out of court on undisclosed terms, Wahlberg said.

Evergreen did mount a defense last year after Aviall Services Inc., a Chicago-based company, sued for more than $599,000 in unpaid charges for parts and supplies. But U.S. District Judge Barbara Lynn, in Dallas, Texas, ordered Evergreen to pay in full, plus attorneys’ fees and interest.

In the case of the Anchorage Marriott, hotel owner Columbia Properties Anchorage sued Evergreen this week in U.S. District Court in Portland, claiming the company failed to make payments after March on its outstanding balance.

The owner added 20 anonymous defendants to the suit – referring to them as “Does,” as in John Doe – saying the true names and capacities of the hotel guests could not be determined. Columbia, which routinely held 15 rooms a night for Evergreen at $84 each plus tax, seeks $77,726.88 plus interest and attorneys’ fees.

Mike Hines, Evergreen International Aviation chairman, has not returned phone calls to speak for the company regarding allegations raised in the suits.

The number of lawsuits filed against Evergreen for nonpayment has jumped during the past two years. But some of the suits are the kind that would arise in the normal course of business.

A British insurance company, for example, is suing Evergreen, claiming the airline flew 5,568 cases of cigarettes that arrived in Japan sopping wet.

Evergreen did respond to that suit, arguing the case should be dismissed. "

  • THREATENED SPECIES

    Federal officials designate habitat for threatened Oregon spotted frog

    61 acres in Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument are identified by USFWS

    " About 61 acres of spring-fed marshes and a creek within the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument were tapped as critical habitat for the Oregon spotted frog, which is threatened by everything from marsh draining to predation by bullfrogs.
    After nearly three years of scientific review and public comment, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service this week finalized its designation for habitat deemed vital to the long-term survival of this rare frog that once stretched from British Columbia to Northern California but now has only pockets of isolated populations, according to the service.
    The final designation includes approximately 65,038 acres and 20.34 river miles in California, Oregon and Washington, but only 61 acres protect an isolated population in Jackson County.
    They include a series of springs called Parsnip Lakes and a stretch of Keene Creek downstream of the Keene Creek reservoir, says Jim Thrailkill, field supervisor for the service's Roseburg office.
    The springs feed marshy areas used by the frogs, as well as Keene Creek, which is fed by a mix of springwater and water that flows out of Keene Reservoir, Thrailkill said.
    The reservoir captures diverted Hyatt Lake water before it is piped through the Greensprings power plant.
    "It's still generally pretty good (habitat), but it's declining," Thrailkill said.
    Threats include encroachment of mostly native vegetation, Thrailkill said.
    "We're concerned about the overall losing of water habitat," he said. "Any future restoration would be on improving the water features there."
    Of the critical habitat acreage, 48 acres are owned by the Bureau of Land Management and 13 acres are on private lands within monument boundaries, Thrailkill said.
    Monument Assistant Manager Joel Brumm said BLM staffers, service biologists and Southern Oregon University biology professor Mike Parker have discussed possible habitat improvements there, but nothing formal has begun.
    "We all agree we'd like to see something, and we're actively discussing what to do," Brumm said.
    The Jackson County designation is part of the 262-acre upper Klamath Basin unit, one of 14 areas tapped as critical habitat, said Bridget Moran, field supervisor of the USFWS Bend office.
    The Klamath and Upper Deschutes basins contain the lion's share of the designated Oregon habitat, according to service maps released this week.
    Under federal Endangered Species Act rules, designation of critical habitat does not affect land ownership or establish a refuge or preserve, and has no impact on private landowners taking actions on their land that do not require federal funding or permits.
    However, if federal money or permits apply, the landowner must consult with the Fish and Wildlife Service to ensure the frogs and their habitat are not illegally harmed, according to the act.
    One of the most aquatic frogs in the Pacific Northwest, the Oregon spotted frog lives almost year-round in water. The frog, which grows up to 4 inches long, is named for the black spots on its head, back, sides and legs.
    Spotted frogs were found historically from southern British Columbia to the Pit River drainage in northeastern California, but now only isolated populations exist in Oregon, Washington and Canada, according to the service.
    The draining or conversion of marshes to meadows, altered habitat from nonnative plants such as reed canarygrass and predation from bullfrogs and nonnative fish have been identified as their biggest threats.
    There are 3,463 fewer acres of critical habitat than originally proposed in 2013, according to the service. The excluded lands included some private and county lands with completed management and conservation plans already put in place to protect and enhance spotted frog habitat on them.
    The Jackson County final designation was unchanged from the original proposal, Moran said."

Bill Cosby Will Stand Trial. Truth Will Out.

 

 

Bill Cosby ordered to stand trial in decade-old sex case

  - - ---

 

NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Bill Cosby was ordered Tuesday to stand trial on sexual assault charges after a hearing that hinged on a decade-old police report in which a woman said the comedian gave her three blue pills that put her in a stupor, unable to stop his advances.

District Judge Elizabeth McHugh ruled that prosecutors had sufficient evidence to bring Cosby to trial in the lone criminal case brought against him out of the barrage of allegations that he drugged and molested dozens of women. A trial date was not immediately set.

Cosby, 78, could get 10 years in prison if convicted.

"Mr. Cosby, good luck to you, sir," the judge said.

"Thank you," said the former TV star, who stood up briskly after the ruling and seemed chipper and unsurprised. He hugged one of his lawyers.

The judge set an arraignment for July 20, at which time he could enter a plea. But Cosby waived his right to appear at that proceeding. That sets the case on a trajectory for trial.

The preliminary hearing was not the face-to-face confrontation between accuser and accused that some had anticipated: Andrea Constand, the former Temple University athletic department employee who said Cosby violated her at his suburban Philadelphia mansion in 2004, was not in the courtroom, and the judge ruled that she did not have to testify at this stage.

Instead, prosecutors had portions of her 2005 statement to police read into the record.

While authorities in recent months have paraphrased her account and quoted fragments, this was apparently the first time that large sections of her statement — or Cosby's, for that matter — were made public.

Constand told police in 2005 that the comedian penetrated her with his fingers after giving her pills that made her legs "rubbery" and "like jelly." ''Everything was blurry and dizzy. I felt nauseous," she said.

"I told him, 'I can't even talk, Mr. Cosby.' I started to panic," she told police.

She said she awoke with her bra askew and did not remember undoing it.

In her statement, she said Cosby told her the pills were herbal medication. She said he also urged her to sip wine even though she said had not eaten and didn't want to drink.

Cosby's lawyers argued unsuccessfully that reading Constand's statement instead of putting her on the stand would be hearsay and would deprive him of his right to confront his accuser. But having a police officer read someone's statement is common practice at preliminary hearings in Pennsylvania, which have a much lower burden of proof than trials.

In his own 2005 statement to police, excerpts of which were also read in court, Cosby portrayed it as consensual sexual activity, saying Constand never said "no" as he put his hand down her pants. A seemingly relaxed Cosby said he and Constand had had other "petting" sessions before.

Cosby also told police the pills were over-the-counter Benadryl that he takes to help him sleep. He said he gave Constand one and a half pills and she did not ask what they were.

During the hearing, Cosby attorney Brian McMonagle questioned why Constand continued to see the comedian and even returned to the house to meet with him after the alleged assault.

Detective Katherine Hart testified that Constand told detectives in 2005 that she went back to Cosby's home to confront him about what had happened.

Constand also told detectives she contacted Cosby after moving to Canada because she wanted tickets to one of his comedy shows. McMonagle said Constand brought a present for Cosby.

Earlier Tuesday, the comedian walked into the courthouse on the arm of an aide, waving to people waiting outside. He looked healthier than he did when he was charged in December, and was not carrying a cane this time.

Prosecutors reopened the case last year after dozens of women leveled similar allegations and after Cosby's sealed deposition in Constand's lawsuit was made public.

He settled her lawsuit for an undisclosed sum in 2006 after testifying about his extramarital affairs, his use of quaaludes to seduce women and his efforts to hide payments to former lovers from his wife.

The testimony and the barrage of allegations have all but destroyed Cosby's nice-guy image from TV's "Cosby Show."

Cosby's lawyers are trying to get the case thrown out, arguing that a previous prosecutor a decade ago made a binding promise that the comic would never be charged. On Monday, Pennsylvania's Supreme Court rejected a request to delay the preliminary hearing while Cosby pursues a dismissal.

Cosby has not entered a plea since his Dec. 30 arrest. He is free on $1 million bail.

He is also fighting defamation lawsuits across the country for allegedly branding his accusers liars and is trying to get his homeowner insurance to pay his legal bills.

Constand is now a massage therapist in Toronto."

SALEM — A state senator may be facing a $500 fine for smoking in his Capitol office.
The Statesman Journal reports Republican state Sen. Jeff Kruse was sent a warning from the Oregon Health Authority May 16 saying he may have violated Oregon's Indoor Clean Air Act.
The senator from Roseburg told the Statesman while having a Pall Mall cigarette Tuesday that for 20 years he's smoked inside his office, adding it was once common. He says he closes the door and opens a window and didn't think it was bothering anybody.
But legislative counsel has warned Kruse over the years to stop and complaints have been filed over smoke filling the hallways. The county has fined the Legislature's administrative committee $300 for the violations.
Kruse now says he'll smoke outside and says he wishes he didn't smoke but has no plans to quit."

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Three Navy Officers Charged in Expanding Bribery and Fraud Scheme

Three current and former Navy officers were charged in documents unsealed today for their roles in a massive bribery and fraud scheme involving a Navy contractor. 

Assistant Attorney General Leslie R. Caldwell of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, U.S. Attorney Laura E. Duffy of the Southern District of California, Acting Director Dermot O’Reilly of the Department of Defense’s Defense Criminal Investigative Service (DCIS), Director Andrew Traver of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) and Director Anita Bales of Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) made the announcement.

Retired Navy Captain Michael Brooks, 57, of Fairfax Station, Virginia; Commander Bobby Pitts, 47, of Chesapeake, Virginia; and Lieutenant Commander Gentry Debord, 47, who is based in Singapore, were charged on May 25, 2016, in the Southern District of California.  Brooks and Debord were each charged with one count of conspiracy to commit bribery and Pitts was charged with one count of conspiracy to defraud the United States and two counts of obstruction of justice.  All of the charges relate to the defendants’ interactions with Leonard Francis, the former CEO of Glenn Defense Marine Asia (GDMA), a defense contracting firm based in Singapore.  Brooks and Pitts made their initial appearances today in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia; Debord appeared in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California.  Brooks was allowed to post a $50,000 bond; Pitts was granted a $5,000 bond, ordered to be subject to electronic monitoring and to appear in the Southern District of California on June 10; and Debord was granted a $40,000 bond secured by real property.  Debord is scheduled to appear for a preliminary hearing before U.S. Magistrate Judge David Bartick of the Southern District of California on June 9, 2016.

According to the indictment, from June 2006 to July 2008, Brooks served as the U.S. Naval Attaché at the U.S. Embassy in Manila, Philippines.  The indictment alleges that in exchange for travel and entertainment expenses, hotel rooms and the services of prostitutes, Brooks used his office to benefit GDMA and Francis, including securinge the quarterly diplomatic clearances for GDMA vessels, which allowed GDMA vessels to transit into and out of the Philippines under the diplomatic clearance of the U.S. Embassy; limited the amount of custom fees and taxes that GDMA was required to pay in the Philippines; and enabled GDMA to avoid inspection of any quantity or type of cargo that it transported.  The indictment also alleges that Brooks provided Francis with sensitive Navy information, including billing information belonging to a GDMA competitor and Navy ship schedules.   

According to the indictment, from August 2009 to May 2011, Pitts was the Officer in Charge of the Navy’s Fleet Industrial Supply Command (FISC), which was charged with meeting the logistical needs of the U.S. Navy’s Seventh Fleet.  The indictment alleges that in exchange for entertainment, meals and the services of a prostitute, Pitts used his position with FISC to interfere with NCIS investigations into GDMA.  Pitts allegedly provided Francis with a  hard copy of an NCIS report detailing an investigation into GDMA for contract fraud marked “for official use only.”  According to the indictment, the report detailed NCIS’ investigative steps and witnesses that NCIS had interviewed.  The indictment further alleges that in November 2010, Pitts forwarded to a GDMA employee an internal Navy email discussing details of FISC’s efforts to oversee GDMA’s contracts with the U.S. Navy. 

According to the criminal complaint, from November 2007 to August 2013, Debord served in several logistical and supply positions in the Western Pacific.  In exchange for cash, hotel stays and the services of prostitutes, Debord allegedly provided Francis with inside Navy information and documents, including information about competitors’ bids and information about an investigation into GDMA billing practices.  In an attempt to conceal the true nature of his relationship with Francis, Debord allegedly referred to prostitutes as “cheesecake” or “bodyguards.”  The complaint also alleges that Debord schemed with Francis to defraud the Navy through the submission and approval of inflated invoices.

Including those charged yesterday, 13 individuals have been charged in connection with this scheme; of those, nine have pleaded guilty, including U.S. Navy Captain (Select) Michael Misiewicz, U.S. Navy Capt. Daniel Dusek, Lieutenant Commander Todd Malaki, NCIS Special Agent John Beliveau, Commander Jose Luis Sanchez and U.S. Navy Petty Officer First Class Dan Layug.  Former Department of Defense Senior Executive Paul Simpkins awaits trial.  On Jan. 21, 2016, Layug was sentenced to 27 months in prison and a $15,000 fine; on Jan. 29, 2016, Malaki was sentenced to 40 months in prison and to pay $15,000 in restitution to the Navy and a $15,000 fine; on March 18, 2016, Alex Wisidagama, a former GDMA employee, was sentenced to 63 months and to pay $34.8 million in restitution to the Navy; on March 25, 2016, Dusek was sentenced to 46 months in prison and to pay $30,000 in restitution to the Navy and a $70,000 fine; and on April 29, 2016, Misiewicz was sentenced to 78 months in prison and to pay a fine of $100,000 and to forfeit $95,000 in proceeds for the scheme.

The NCIS, DCIS and DCAA are conducting the ongoing investigation.  Assistant Chief Brian R. Young of the Criminal Division’s Fraud Section and Assistant U.S. Attorney Mark W. Pletcher of the Southern District of California are prosecuting the case. 

The details contained in the charging documents are allegations.  The defendants are presumed to be innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

Those with information relating to fraud, corruption or waste in government contracting should contact the NCIS anonymous tip line at www.ncis.navy.mil or the DOD Hotline at www.dodig.mil/hotline, or call (800) 424-9098.

'Suck it up, cupcake!': Sarah Palin's 9 most Sarah Palin moments of 2016

 

 

 

Sarah Palin: Trump will 'kick ISIS' ass' 

(CNN)Sarah Palin has a way with words.

From her arrival on the national political scene in 2008 to her recent stumping for Republican presumptive Donald Trump the former Alaska governor has routinely fashioned odd and unusual rhetorical arrangements -- including a new memorable turn-of-phrase at a Trump rally in San Diego on Friday.
Since announcing her support for Trump in January, she has routinely dazzled and dumbfounded observers at rallies and in interviews. Here are the most Palin moments of Palin's last few months.
 

 

'Suck it up, cupcake!'

"Do you know how thoroughly distrusted you are, mainstream media?" she asked during the Trump rally in San Diego, looking toward the "sheep in the media."
"Well, he is now, though, he is we the people's nominee," she continued, before dropping the hammer: "So, suck it up, cupcake!"

'Like a golden wrecking ball'

In the same speech, Palin praised Trump for "roaring into this primary and (blowing) the lid off the corrupted and corroded machine."
"He was like a golden wrecking ball!" she continued, launching countless nickname jokes and suggestions. "He wrecked what needed to be wrecked."
 
 
 

'Green and gold until I'm dead and cold'

Campaigning for Trump in Wisconsin -- one of the few speed bumps in Trump's roll to the nomination -- Palin opened her April 1 speech Milwaukee speech with: "Getting off the airplane today as I'm walking through the airport, and seeing all the green and gold and the green and gold until I'm dead and cold, paraphernalia everywhere."
The NFL's Green Bay Packers, who play about 120 miles north of Milwaukee, wear green and gold.
 
 

'Teddy bears and soccer balls'

"What the heck are you thinking, candidates?" she asked later in her Wisconsin remarks. "What are you thinking when you're going ahead and you're actually asking for more immigrants, even illegal immigrants, welcoming them in, even inducing and seducing them with gift baskets, 'Come on over the border and here's a gift basket of teddy bears and soccer balls.' What are you thinking?"
The audience apparently did not think much of the 18-minute speech, which was met mostly with silence.
 
 
 

'No more pussyfooting around!'

Palin endorsed Trump on January 19 in Iowa.
"Only one candidate's record of success proves he is the master of the 'art of the deal,'" she said. "He is perfectly positioned to let you make America great again. Are you ready for that, Iowa?"
Iowans, as it turned out, were not. Republican caucus-goers voted for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. Still, the next line was a big winner.
"No more pussyfooting around!" she declared. "Our troops deserve the best. You deserve the best!"

'Right winging, bitter clinging'

Iowa marked Palin's big return to the campaign game and she stayed true to form. Here was her message to establishment Republicans questioning Trump's bona fides:
"Now they're concerned about his ideological purity? Give me a break! Who are they to say that? Oh, tell somebody like Phyllis Schlafly, she is the Republican, conservative movement icon and hero and a Trump supporter. Tell her she's not conservative. How about the rest of us? Right winging, bitter clinging, proud clingers of our guns, our God, and our religion, and our Constitution. Tell us that we're not red enough? Yeah, coming from the establishment. Right."
Palin's taste for rhyming didn't go unnoticed. It found its way into a neat musical mash-up.
 
 
 
 

'Paul Ryan is soon to be 'Cantored''

When House Speaker Paul Ryan, among the most powerful elected Republicans, told CNN's Jake Tapper on May 5 he was "just not ready" to support Trump, Palin bit back and announced plans to back Ryan's primary opponent in Wisconsin.
Palin: Paul Ryan's political career is over

Palin: Paul Ryan's political career is over 02:29
"I think Paul Ryan is soon to be 'Cantored,' as in Eric Cantor," she said in an interview with Tapper a few days later, referencing the ousted former GOP majority leader. "(Ryan's) political career is over but for a miracle because he has so disrespected the will of the people, and as the leader of the GOP, the convention, certainly he is to remain neutral, and for him to already come out and say who he will not support is not a wise decision of his."
Despite Palin's backing, Ryan is expected to flick off his challenger, Paul Nehlen, by a heavy margin.

'Bill Nye is as much a scientist as I am'

Sarah Palin rips Bill Nye over climate change

Sarah Palin rips Bill Nye over climate change 01:02
Palin questioned Nye's expert credentials during a visit to Washington for the premiere of a film called "Climate Hustle," which attempts to throw doubt on climate science and global warming.
"He's a kids' show actor," Palin said, "he's not a scientist."
(In case you're wondering, FactCheck.org looked into this one and determined that, yes, Nye is in fact a scientist.)
 
 
 

'Who am I to question that?'

Palin followed up her jab at Nye by speaking with The Guardian. In their chat, she blamed peer pressure for promoting climate concerns.
"Too many people believe that, 'Oh, well, I guess if 97% of all scientists believe that man's activities are creating changes in the weather, who am I to question that?'"
The 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee also took issue with the stat -- saying it was exaggerated -- but comedian Jimmy Kimmel got the last laugh, playing the clip back later and responding, "Exactly. Who are you to question that?"

Man dies in one of two cabin fires

 
 
Jackson County Undersheriff Rod Countryman, center, and sheriff’s deputies investigate a fatal fire off Dead Indian Memorial Road Thursday. The cabin was the second of two that burned in separate fires early that morning on the mountain road. "



September 05, 2008
" Firefighters discovered a badly burned body in one of two cabins destroyed by separate fires along Dead Indian Memorial Road early Thursday.
Jackson County Sheriff Mike Winters called the death and pair of fires suspicious, but he and other investigators remained tight-lipped about the case.
Details about the causes of the fires and the identity of the dead man will take time to confirm, he said.
However, friends and family suspect the victim is David Edwin Lewis, a 46-year-old father of three who lived alone at one of the hilltop cabins lost in the fires. The other was a summer home only occupied on weekends, neighbors and authorities said.
A driver on Dead Indian Memorial Road spotted and reported the first fire near the intersection with Keno Access Road just before 3 a.m., said Gene Davies, chief of the all-volunteer Greensprings Fire and Rescue. A crew of six volunteers found the small, rustic cabin at 18196 Dead Indian Memorial Road engulfed in flames, he said. Oregon Department of Forestry firefighters joined the fight against the flames. Crews used three water tanker trucks and a portable water pond to douse the flames, but the weekend retreat burned to the ground.
At about 4 a.m., 9-1-1 calls from the Ashland Mine Road area reported seeing flames on the hillside across the valley, Jackson County Fire District No. 5 Chief Dan Marshall said. As district trucks headed up from the valley below, crews from the earlier fire roughly five miles down the road spotted the flames shooting into the sky and were the first to arrive at the burning cabin, he said.
 
"The fire had burned undetected for a long time," Marshall said. "It was on the ground when crews arrived."
 
Only a concrete chimney protruded from the rubble of the rustic wood home with a loft as investigators worked Thursday morning.
After quelling the flames, which licked to the tops of neighboring trees but didn't spread into the forest, firefighters discovered the body and contacted the sheriff's department, Marshall said.
 
Winters said the two fires in the rural neighborhood had already garnered his department's attention as suspicious.
 
The Sheriff's Department, Oregon State Police, the state Fire Marshal's Office and District 5 all had investigators at the scenes of both fires throughout Thursday. Winters said a thorough investigation will take time to uncover exactly what happened.
 
"These things aren't solved overnight," he said.
 
He noted that the utter devastation of the burned buildings will make it challenging to find evidence, but the multi-agency team will tackle the job. Until details emerge, the fire and deaths must be considered suspicious, he said.
Jackson County Deputy Medical Examiner Tim Pike said the body was badly burned, but an autopsy to positively identify the victim and look for a cause of death was set tentatively for late Thursday or this morning.
In Alaska, Linda Lewis, David Lewis' sister, anxiously awaited word from authorities. She said her brother, a welder who rented and served as caretaker of the rural property overlooking the Rogue Valley, was a meticulous man who carefully maintained the home's appliances, smoke detectors and wood stove. She said she doubted that the fire was an accident or suicide, especially in light of the other fire nearby.
"It's just too coincidental," she said. "It makes me sad."
She said Lewis was an outspoken man who could have made enemies. He'd gone through an acrimonious divorce in 1999, followed by a string of misdemeanor assault and harassment convictions. He had a decades-old felony conviction for growing marijuana, which prevented him from keeping a firearm for protection, Miller said.
However, she said, he had since gotten his life on track.
 
 
 
 
 
He loved politics and almost certainly would have tuned in on television to watch Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin accept the historic nomination as the Republican's first female vice presidential candidate, his sister said.
 
He was an avid fisherman, nicknamed Fish Hook for his ability to catch a fish wherever he dropped a line, a good cook, and a devoted father, she said. "

Roman Polanski Faces New Extradition Challenge Over Child Sex

 

 - -- 

 

Roman Polanski faces a fresh extradition challenge after the Polish government announced Tuesday it would appeal a court decision not to force him to face U.S. courts over a 1977 child sex conviction.

Zbigniew Ziobro, justice minister and prosecutor general, said his decision was because Polanski was "accused of and wanted for…a rape of a child," Polish state news agency PAP reported.

U.S. authorities launched extradition proceedings after Polanski appeared in Krakow in 2014 to announce plans to make a film there.

Poland's new right-wing government, elected last October shortly before the court decision, has long argued that Polanski should face justice.

Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the leader of the ruling Law and Justice Party, made clear the party's position just before it came to power, saying the fugitive filmmaker should be expected to face U.S. justice.

Explaining the decision to appeal the decision, Ziobro was quoted by the Polish radio station Tok FM as saying that the Polanski case was "for many Poles regarded as a litmus test," and it should prove that no people get preferential treatment because of their social status.

Jan Olszewski, Roman Polanski's lawyer, told Polish television network TVN24 that the minister's move was "anticipated."

He emphasized that the court was not considering whether Polanski is guilty but should only be concerned with whether he can be extradited.

Polanski lives in France, where he is safe from extradition, but he holds dual French and Polish citizenship. He keeps an apartment in Krakow, in southern Poland, where he is currently preparing a film based on the Dreyfus Affairs, a notorious case of miscarriage of justice in early 20th-century France, which the Polish Flm Institute has agreed to co-finance."

182 pounds of cocaine found on bus that traveled from Mexico to Wilmington

 

 

 

 Members of a federal task force found 182 pounds of cocaine hidden inside a charter bus that traveled from Mexico to Wilmington, authorities said Tuesday.

There were no passengers on the bus when the bust – conducted by the Department of Justice’s L.A. IMPACT task force – took place.

The drugs were found about 9 a.m. at an auto body shop after investigators tailed the bus from the San Ysidro border crossing about 4 a.m., said task force deputy director Carlos Mendoza.

The 83 kilos of cocaine were encased in foil in a 15-foot long hidden compartment above the left rear tire, blocked by the bus’ radiator, Mendoza said. The drugs went undetected during a sweep by border officers, he said.

Authorities believe the drug shipment is connected to Mexican cartels because of its size and the relative sophistication involved in hiding it, Mendoza said. It had an estimated wholesale value of $2.1 million and street value of $10 million, the DOJ said.

Police arrested Victor Fainz Miranda, Jaime Jimenez and Humberto Vazquez when they searched the business.

The DOJ’s IMPACT team made headlines last week when they arrested five men in a Hooters parking lot in Ontario after they allegedly tried to sell 53 pounds of methamphetamine. The men were allegedly linked to the Sinaloa cartel.

Sheriff Klamath County

Ex-detective sues Klamath County for $685K, accuses sheriff of retaliation

 

 

KLAMATH FALLS — A former detective with the Klamath County Sheriff's Office has filed a lawsuit against the county, alleging she faced retaliation after discussing the actions of Sheriff Frank Skrah with state investigators.

The sheriff was charged with nine misdemeanors, including assault, strangulation and harassment, after an investigation into whether mistreated suspects. Prosecutors say he used excessive force on three suspects and didn't compensate a citizen for property damage caused by an on-duty deputy. He has denied wrongdoing and remains on the job.

Geneva Lewis says Skrah eliminated her job following her interview with state investigators.

According to a tort letter Lewis filed in January, she was hired as a deputy in 2012 and promoted to detective in 2014. In 2013, she was injured during a K-9 demonstration and placed on light duty.

Lewis said Skrah began trying to fire her after she was interviewed about his conduct by the Department of Justice last spring. The sheriff said she was medically unable to perform her role as a detective, the letter said.

But Lewis says she had already been injured when she out-tested two other applicants for the detective position in 2014 and that her medical condition didn't prevent her from being able to investigate cases or contact suspects.

Lewis said the human resource manager was misled by Skrah and forced her to take medical leave in July, the letter said. Skrah then eliminated the detective position.

She returned to work in August with a medical release from her doctor. The demotion came with a 9 percent pay decrease, Lewis said in the tort letter.

The Herald and News reports that at least seven deputies have complained of retaliation, but Lewis is the first to file a lawsuit. She seeks $685,000 and reinstatement to her detective position.

Skrah has pleaded not guilty to assault, attempted assault, strangulation, harassment and official misconduct in the Department of Justice ca

Lewis' husband, Steve Lewis, is running for sheriff. He says his candidacy and his wife's allegations are unrelated.

Danny Jordan. Bad Admin. Who Really Runs...

 

 

Breidenthal: I was never asked; I was just accused.

 

 MEDFORD-- Jackson County Commissioner Doug Breidenthal spoke out  about why he feels he is being treated unfairly in light of a recent complaint filed with the Ethics Commission, which will now review if the commissioner previously misused county and campaign funds.

-

 

 

Cause Danny Jordan was just doin his job...or not...

  - -

 

 

 

 

In October 2015, the public was informed a complaint had been filed with the Ethics Commission against the commissioner.

County Auditor Eric Spivak says that while the county was reviewing finances and was in the process of reimbursements, staff was informed that the Association of Oregon Counties would directly reimburse the commissioner for WIR election expenses. Spivak says county administration found this unusual because the county reimburses commissioners and AOC reimburses the county.

Spivak says calls were made to AOC and it was discovered Commissioner Breidenthal had an account with AOC called "Friends of Doug." This account was created so people can donate money and endorse the commissioner during campaigns, according to Commissioner Breidenthal. According to state law, funds given are considered donations only if the public can vote in the election for which the funds are raised. Also, in order to receive donations there must be a political influence in the election. If not, the donated funds "by default become gifts," says Spivak.

Spivak says the county then requested bank statements and proof of transactions to review if the staff funds used during the election in Alaska were eligible expenses for reimbursement. On the state, administration noticed Commissioner Breidenthal bought his wife a plane ticket to Alaska. Commissioner Breidenthal says his wife went on the trip as his campaign manager, not as his wife.

"Technically that is legal, but there is a fine line when it comes to spouses as campaign managers," Spivak says.

On October 19, the County Administrator Danny Jordan, County Counsel, Spivak, and Breidenthal held a meeting to discuss these concerns. Breidenthal and Spivak both agree the conversation was very heated.

On November 27, Breidenthal released a document in which he expressed he felt he was being accused of wrongfully using funds and was being spoken to in an 'insubordinate' way. He says he logged the document after the meeting last month.

Referring to County Administrator Danny Jordan, Breidenthal writes, "I wasn't even asked questions. I was just told you did this and that and if you don't turn yourself in we will turn you in."

"That's not fair. I didn't do anything wrong. I think he forgets who he's working for," Breidenthal says. "To have your own staff investigate the highest elected official... They're going to have to reveal or say things that puts them in a position they shouldn't be in."

Breidenthal told News10 that he asked the County to bring in a third party to look into these concerns.

"I want to make it clear this is not an investigation into the commissioner," Spivak says. "The Ethics Commission is reviewing what we've found to see if there needs to be an investigation. There are many things that are not clear. I'm not sure what is legal and what is not. That is the job of the commission and they do it for free"

"I hope he is found innocent," Spivak says. "I'll be the first to shake his hand and take him to lunch. I regret his family has to go through this but I have a standard to live up to and it's my job to make sure county funds are being used correctly."

Spivak could not release more details about the complaint against the commissioner.

The Ethics Commission declined to comment on the complaint and said details will be released January 15, 2016."

    Feds: Former US attorney for Oregon lied about affair

    There will be no criminal prosecution

  - -

 

 

 

 

 

 PORTLAND — Former U.S. Attorney for Oregon Amanda Marshall violated sexual harassment laws while having an affair with a subordinate and lied about the relationship when confronted, federal authorities said Tuesday.

The Office of the Inspector General released the findings in a brief investigative summary that did not identify Marshall by name. A government official speaking on the condition of anonymity confirmed it's about Marshall.
The inspector general said Marshall won't face criminal prosecution, but the findings will be forwarded to the Office of Professional Responsibility. That office will decide whether her conduct warrants referral to appropriate bar authorities.
Attorney Charese Rohny, who represented Marshall at the time of her resignation, said she would speak with Marshall about whether to comment on the investigation.
Marshall cited health problems stemming from post-traumatic stress disorder when she resigned last year amid rumors she had an inappropriate relationship with an assistant U.S. attorney and harassed him with unwanted text messages when the affair ended.
The inspector general found that the "intimate personal relationship" lasted for more than a year and the U.S. attorney continued to participate in work-related matters involving the subordinate. Investigators determined that the relationship, and the "multiple harassing communications," violated sexual harassment laws and regulations.
The summary said Marshall lied about the nature of the relationship when confronted, violated instructions not to have contact with the assistant U.S. attorney and tried to impede the investigation by telling the subordinate that he was the subject of the probe and should not speak with the inspector general.
John Lavinsky, counsel to the inspector general, declined to discuss specifics of the case and identified the Privacy Act as the reason for shielding the U.S. attorney's name.
An Obama appointee, Marshall was confirmed by the U.S. Senate in September 2011 and began her work as U.S. attorney that October. She was replaced by Billy J. Williams in 2015."

xxx Bad Sheriff Mike Winters & Gil Gilbertson

 

 

 EDITORIAL MAIL TRIBUNE:

 

" OUR VIEW, COUNTY SHERIFFS'  POWER NOT UNLIMITED" 

 

 

Two recent news stories, one involving the sheriff of a neighboring county and the other a former sheriff, are examples of a disturbing trend among elected county law enforcement officials in the West: The notion that the sheriff is a law unto himself and has the authority to decide what the law is and when it can be ignored.
Former Josephine County Sheriff Gil Gilbertson walked into the County Clerk's Office in Grants Pass in April and asked that his "oath of office" be recorded. Gilbertson, who was defeated for re-election in 2014, holds no office, but claimed he is a "marshal" of the "Continental United States of America," a "warrior protector" with "jurisdiction of all matters of all states" where oppression and other wrongs are being perpetrated.
Perpetrated by whom was not clear, but Gilbertson was well known while in office as a member of the Constitutional Sheriff's and Peace Officers Association, a group that holds to the mistaken belief that county sheriffs are the highest legal authority in the country, with the power to overrule federal laws and government actions they decide are unconstitutional.
Gilbertson and other sheriffs at the time of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in 2013 vowed to disobey any gun control measures enacted by the Obama administration that they believed violated the Second Amendment. Occupiers of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Harney County were on their way to meet with Grant County Sheriff Glenn E. Palmer, another CSPOA member, when they were arrested at a highway roadblock earlier this year.
Former Jackson County Sheriff Mike Winters — similarly prone to thumbing his nose at laws with which he disagreed — was also a member of the group.
Another member is Siskiyou County Sheriff Jon Lopey, who made news this week when his department reportedly stopped county residents of Hmong descent at a roadblock and asked them if they were registered to vote, then went to their homes to tell them they could not vote in Tuesday's California primary. The Redding Record-Searchlight reported Tuesday that the California Attorney General's Office had stepped in, along with the Secretary of State's office, to monitor polling places and make sure all eligible voters were able to participate.
Lopey's office did not respond to requests for a detailed explanation of the actions, and the exact motivation behind them is unclear. But a county sheriff reportedly using state election laws as a political weapon — or refusing to enforce laws he deems unconstitutional — is a threat to the rule of law itself.
Sheriffs are elected to be enforce the law in the unincorporated areas of their counties, and to operate the county jail. They do not have the power to pick and choose which laws they will follow, or to rule on the constitutionality of any statute.
Sheriffs who want to oppose federal actions or advocate the repeal of federal law have that right, of course — as does any private citizen. Their badge gives them no more power in that regard than anyone else. "

But Winters did multiple conferences for jail escapee Brad Monical. And sent a SWAT team to wrongfully evict Mistletoe Earl Harris, honorable navy veteran, who ended up violently shot- dead, on Winters' watch.

Man pleads guilty in 'straw man' gun-buying ring

 

 When xxx-sheriff Michael Scott Winters was asked why it was labeled rap-it-up,

" I don't know, maybe the music they listen to."

"  According to the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, the name “Rap It Up” is spelled r-a-p because a number of the people arrested were apparently involved in a rap music group."

MEDFORD — A Grants Pass man whose stray-bullet killing of a little girl led to the exposure of a gun-buying conspiracy pleaded guilty Monday in federal court to trading a gun for drugs and lying to a firearms dealer to get a gun for someone else instead of himself.
Jon Andrew Meyer Jr., 33, mishandled a Russian-made SKS rifle that discharged July 27, 2013, fatally shooting 5-year-old Alysa Bobbitt, who was visiting an upstairs apartment in Grants Pass. A friend of the child's mother was also seriously injured.
The case led to the exposure of an organized "straw man" gun-buying ring in Josephine and Jackson counties. In such cases, the "straw man" is someone who claims to be purchasing firearms for personal use but is secretly representing someone else, usually someone who is not legally allowed to buy guns.
Some of the guns turned up later at crime scenes in California, including gang shootings in Oakland. Thirty-one people were indicted in July 2014 under "Operation Rap it Up."
As his mother wept in the courtroom, Meyer appeared Monday before Magistrate Judge Mark D. Clarke in U.S. District Court in Medford to agree to a plea bargain that would tack five years onto his existing manslaughter sentence from the shooting.
Meyer, previously described in court as an unemployed bouncer, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to falsify a firearms application and to possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.
The firearm possession case dates to June 27, 2013, and relates to a Harrington & Richardson 12-gauge shotgun.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Douglas Fong told the judge, "Basically, he exchanged methamphetamine and got the firearm."
Meyer's co-defendant and girlfriend, Victoria India Kohout, pleaded guilty in April to one count of conspiracy to make a false statement on a firearms application. Her sentencing is set for July 28.

 -
 

 -Who regulated the sheriff who was regulating the criminals?
Not  CEO. RAP it all up! Investigate the sheriff et. al. too.
 
 
Another co-defendant, Leon Ramon Ireland, still faces charges of aiding and abetting Meyer by soliciting him to buy guns, telling him what guns to buy, providing him with money, paying him and taking possession of the guns. Allegations include that Ireland posted several photos of himself on social media with firearms similar to what his Facebook friend Meyer had purchased.
The judge cautioned Meyer prior to the plea change that the shotgun possession charge carries a maximum sentence of life in prison, with a five-year mandatory minimum sentence, and that the court does not have to abide by terms of the plea bargain.
Sentencing was tentatively scheduled for Sept. 15, but attorneys indicated potential schedule conflicts that could force a date change.
Under the agreement crafted with defense attorney Shaun McCrea, Meyer faces 60 months for the shotgun possession case, to run consecutive to his earlier 75-month sentence for second-degree manslaughter in the death of Alysa Bobbitt. His earliest release date in that case is Sept. 25, 2019.
Under the plea agreement, Meyer is released from a host of charges, including nine counts of making a false statement on a firearms application, possession and distribution of methamphetamine, being an unlawful drug user in possession of a firearm and possession of firearms that include a machine gun, in relation to a drug-trafficking crime.
As Meyer was led from the courtroom with hands cuffed behind him, his mother called to him, "I love you. God be with you, honey."
Afterward, Terri Meyer said she was "proud of him for standing up and taking responsibility."
However, she said, she is "worried how much of his life he's lost now."
"We miss him," she said. "His kids miss him."
His children are ages 9, 12 and 14."

Vinals sues attorneys, judge over racketeering case



The accused leader of a drug ring busted during Operation Trojan Horse in 2013 has sued both his former attorneys and members of the Klamath County District Attorney’s Office for alleged rights violations.

Jose Buenaventura Vinals, 53, filed suit May 4, 2016 in federal court in Medford alleging he was denied due process and a speedy trial and was subject to cruel and unusual punishment. He is seeking $12 million and the dismissal of his charges as well as a written apology from all defendants.

Newspaper a defendant

Accused in Vinals’ suit are his former defense attorneys Donald Scales and Phil Studenberg, District Attorney Rob Patridge and five current and former prosecutors, Judge Roxanne Osborne and the Herald and News’ reporting staff.

Vinals was charged May 15, 2013, with 11 felony counts including racketeering and delivery of methamphetamine. He was arrested as part of Operation Trojan Horse, a multi-agency sting aimed at busting a drug- and weapons-smuggling ring with connections to Mexican cartels.

Investigation of the ring began following the murders of Everado Mendez-Ceja, 32, of Richmond, Calif., and Ricardo Jauregui, 38, of Oakland, Calif., who were found shot to death near a burned-out pickup outside Bonanza Oct. 6, 2012.

Out of more than 50 suspects arrested during the sting, Vinals is the last accused leader of the ring to have his case adjudicated. He is scheduled for trial Aug. 1, 2016 and faces up to 130 years in prison.

In his suit, Vinals claims prosecutors, his defenders and Osborne denied him a speedy trial by giving him “false guidance.” On Nov. 13, 2015, Vinals pleaded guilty to three of his 11 counts and was told by Scales, his attorney at the time, prosecutors were likely to ask for 15 years in prison. Prosecutors then asked for 27 years and Scales told the court he unintentionally misled his client because of a misunderstanding of Oregon law.

Vinals was allowed to withdraw his plea and believes actions such as these by court officials have hindered his ability to receive a fair trial.

“The potential jury pool is now poisoned,” he said in his lawsuit.

Slander by the media

Vinals also claims media overage of his case has “slandered (his) name and defamed (his) character.” He insisted he was not responsible for the deaths of Mendez-Ceja and Jauregui, though he has not been charged with their murders.

He said he wants the results of an associated polygraph test published on the front page of the newspaper to exonerate him. His suit did not clearly state if the polygraph test has already taken place.

“I didn’t murder no one,” he said.

 

 

Vinals’ suit has been assigned to Judge Marco Hernandez and a future court date has yet to be scheduled. Vinals filed a notice with the court June 2 and said he was in the process of seeking an attorney to represent him.

Vinals additionally filed a motion in his criminal case Tuesday to disqualify Osborne on the grounds Osborne is biased against Vinals.

In a letter to Osborne filed the same day, Vinals claimed Osborne has a personal dislike of him and is unable to impartially try his case. According to a proposed order filed Wednesday, Osborne intends to deny Vinals’ motion."

Not So Stellar David Rath & his Aftermath

 

Trial in Peruvian helicopter crash to stay in Oregon, high court rules

 

The Oregon Supreme Court has kept alive a lawsuit filed on behalf of Peruvian families who lost loved ones in a helicopter crash in the Andes.

The families sued Evergreen Helicopters, a McMinnville-based firm that provided the helicopter and a pilot.

A Multnomah County judge tossed the lawsuit, agreeing with Evergreen lawyers that Peru was the more convenient forum in which to litigate the claims.

The Oregon Court of Appeals overturned that decision in 2014, and the high court reached the same conclusion Thursday. The case now returns to Multnomah County for trial.

The helicopter carrying two pilots and eight Peruvian passengers crashed while on a mining project in March 2008, killing everyone on board. The sides disagree about the cause.

Evergreen Helicopters was sold to Portland's Erickson Air-Crane Inc. in 2013.

Erickson defendants agree to pay $18.5 milli

Portland aviation company Erickson Inc. and the private equity company that controls it have tentatively agreed to pay $18.5 million to settle a shareholder's class-action lawsuit, according to court documents.

Edward Montgomery, an Erickson pilot and shareholder, in 2014 sued his company alleging the Erickson board breached its fiduciary duty to shareholders when it OK'ed Erickson's 2013 acquisition of Evergreen Helicopters. Montgomery claims the Evergreen acquisition was a thinly disguised bailout of ZM Private Equity, Erickson's largest shareholder.

Montgomery claimed Quinn Morgan, then Erickson's chairman and the head of ZM, personally negotiated the deal to ensure ZM got repaid the $62 million it was owed by Evergreen. 

Little millions to settle shareholder suit

-

 

 

 

 

-

"ZM Defendants violated their fiduciary duties by using Erickson for their own personal benefit to the detriment of Erickson's minority stockholders," Montgomery claimed.

The Evergreen deal has proven disastrous for Erickson, burdening the company with a crushing load of $355 million in debt. Erickson's stock has collapsed below $1 a share in recent weeks as it struggles through business setbacks and a mounting liquidity crisis.

Most of the $18.5 million settlement will be divvied up among shareholders who held Erickson shares between March 18, 2013 and June 16. It is not nearly enough to cover the loss of value suffered by shareholders as the stock Shareholders have taken a beating. Erickson's stock closed Monday at 76 cents, down from $19.03 a share when Montgomery filed his suit.

The case was set to go trial in August.

Erickson, which has denied any wrongdoing, declined comment

Written into the settlement are new limits on Erickson's ability to conduct major corporate purchases or sales, particularly transactions that involve ZM. Erickson will have to get approval of a committee of independent Erickson boardmembers before it moves ahead, according to the settlement document.

The settlement must be approved by a judge, which probably won't happen until early fall.

Last week, the 800-employee company announced it had hired an investment banking firm to advise it on a possible restructuring. Jeff Roberts, the company's chief executive, acknowledged the company has too much debt and not enough liquidity.

 Investigate & revoke pers & ters & retirement benefits  of Mike Winters:

 

 

A look back at Mike Winters’ time as JaCo Sheriff   10/14

 

 “One thing that I can promise to the residents of Jackson County: that the federal government is not going to come and seize one gun out of this county as long as I’m sheriff here,” said Winter in January of 2013.

 

 KOBI REPORTS:

Medford, Ore. — From legal battles that cost taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars to allegations of abuse at the jail, Jackson County Sheriff Mike Winters’ 12 years in office hasn’t been without controversy.

 Winters announced on another news outlet, that he plans to retire after this year, unless Jackson County residents vote to keep him as Sheriff this November. If that’s the case, he said he would serve another term.

As of this article, after multiple attempts to speak with Winters, he has yet to return any of our phone calls and has not addressed NBC 5 News viewers in an on-camera interview.

Winters was elected to his position in 2002. From there, he would serve three consecutive terms. His third is scheduled to end this year.

During Winters’ campaign for a second term in 2006, now Medford Police Chief Tim George ran against Winters. The Jackson County Sheriff’s Employee Union threw their support behind George not the sheriff.

“Give me the phone calls cause we didn’t have that prior to the election. We didn’t have a lot of complaints, so I think it was a little closer than expected,” said Winters in 2006 about the sheriff’s race.

In 2007, Winters had a showdown in court with the Medford Mail Tribune over releasing a list of concealed weapons license holders. The Mail Tribune said it was a public records issue, but Winters fought to keep the list private.

“I truly believe that people’s information in this area should be protected and I’m willing to take a stand,” said Winters back in 2007.

A Jackson County Circuit Court judge sided with the Mail Tribune.

Also in 2007, Winters denied a gun license to a medical marijuana cardholder. He argued federal law prohibits anyone with a controlled substance to have a concealed weapons permit.

Then in 2008, a Jackson County judge ruled the sheriff must renew the medical marijuana patient’s gun permit.

Winters appealed the decision, lost, then appealed the case again to the Oregon Supreme Court. He lost that appeal too.

According to our report back in 2011, the legal battle cost taxpayers more than $30,000.

In 2011, allegations surfaced regarding abuses at the Jackson County Jail. The American Civil Liberties Union interviewed hundreds of inmates.

“There are definitely problems at the jail,” said Ralph Temple, a volunteer with the ACLU.

Settlements were issued in a number of cases alleging inmate abuse. At the time, the Sheriff’s Office would not supply records to NBC 5 News and refused an interview.

Eventually, Sheriff Winters told us that settling a case is not an admission of guilt.

“The facility is operated within accordance of state law. The policies are followed and there’s no other issues we’re going to really discuss,” said Winters back in May 2011.

According to records, the county spent at least $93,000 litigating and settling cases against the Jackson County Jail.

More taxpayer money was spent in 2011 when an ex-sheriff’s deputy won a $200,000 lawsuit against the county after he said Winters fired him for arresting a former JCSO deputy and giving an Oregon state senator a speeding ticket.

According to our 2011 research, that lawsuit cost county taxpayers more than $479,000 alone. The money was spent on lawyer fees and the plaintiff’s award.

The county paid out at least $600,000 to fight just these legal battles.

Then getting a lot of attention in 2012, a convicted bank robber escaped the jail by leaping from the roof onto a since removed tree. The escape called into question the jail’s security.

“The bottom line is, we own this,” said Winters during a press conference about the escapee.

The run-away convict was found about a year later by U.S. Marshals.

Then this year, in 2014 a JCSO lieutenant ran against his boss Sheriff Mike Winters.

Lieutenant Bob Sergi was then hit with allegations that he used addresses from an employees roster to solicit campaign funds.

He was put on administrative leave and eventually fired. However the Oregon Department of Justice dropped the case, saying there was insufficient evidence to prove Sergi committed a crime.

In his time as sheriff, Winters has also been outspoken about his opposition to stricter gun control laws.

“One thing that I can promise to the residents of Jackson County: that the federal government is not going to come and seize one gun out of this county as long as I’m sheriff here,” said Winter in January of 2013.

The number of jail beds increased this year during a jail expansion and the Sheriff’s Office re-located to a brand new facility on Crater Lake Highway.

The Sheriff’s Office also installed a new security system at Shady Cove Elementary that turns on cameras inside the school during an emergency.

Mike Winters’ time as sheriff over the past 12 years, have been marked by both accomplishment and controversy. "

  • GUEST OPINION

    Guest Opinion: City manager fight is about control

  - -

 "

By Curt Ankerberg

 

" The Rob Patridge for Medford city manager saga has played large in the news lately.
Our dysfunctional City Council took more than one year to finalize its choice for the next city manager, the council and the mayor are almost equally divided on that choice, and we've recently seen Mail Tribune guest editorials by insiders Curt Bennett and Jan Esquivel in support of Patridge. Esquivel even accused Mayor Wheeler of being a "bureaucrat," which is ludicrous. As an outsider and current City Council candidate, this is my opinion of the situation.
There's a turf war going on right now for the control of Medford. The Chamber of Commerce and its followers, which include the Esquivels and eight former and five current council members, want their candidate Rob Patridge to be the next city manager. They want to be in control of how your tax dollars are spent, and to ensure that the Chamber and its executive members continue to receive questionable crony capitalist deals with the city. They also want to ensure a continuance of the unethical $750,000 Travel Medford deal with the city of Medford, which former city manager Swanson and the Mail Tribune opposed. Rob Patridge will ensure the continued delivery of pork for the Chamber.
The opposition includes Mayor Wheeler, former Mayor Lindsey Berryman, Councilmen Kevin Stine, Clay Bearnson and Daniel Bunn, and myself, who want someone other than Patridge selected as city manager, and preferably someone with the proper education and experience, and someone independent of the Chamber. The Chamber's group promotes the Chamber's agenda, while we represent what will benefit the majority of Medford residents.
In the same manner that lawyers are trained in law school, or doctors are trained in medical school, or a CPA such as myself is trained in business school, city managers typically get their training by obtaining master's degrees in public administration from accredited universities. They then work for years as city department heads, then assistant city managers, before they are given the reins to manage their own city.
City managers are responsible for the management, budgeting, planning and human resources of a city which, in the case of Medford, has approximately 80,000 residents, more than 400 city employees and an almost $90 million-per-year budget. Being city manager of Medford is not a job for an unqualified amateur like Rob Patridge, who will have a long learning curve on the job, while at the same time receiving an exorbitant compensation package, which is a 50 percent increase over his current salary and far in excess of what his more qualified predecessor received.
Patridge does not have the requisite budgeting, city planning, management or human resources experience that is demanded for a city of Medford's size, nor has he ever worked for any city in any capacity. He also does not possess a degree in public administration or business administration.
Patridge's professional career has been littered with irrelevant jobs as it relates to being a city manager. None was a training ground for what a city manager does. None dealt with large complex budgets, or managing large diverse groups of employees, or city planning. Comparing being the Klamath County District Attorney (a post Patridge was appointed to) to being the Medford city manager is like comparing managing a 7-Eleven convenience store to managing a Costco retail store. It's a night-and-day difference.
Much of Rob Patridge's career has benefited from the political patronage system, including now. Patridge will do as he's told by his patrons at the Chamber of Commerce, to the detriment of Medford citizens. Medford needs a strong, independent city manager who will put Medford residents ahead of the Chamber.
Patridge would not even be considered for a city manager position in any other city in Oregon, such as Bend, Roseburg or even Klamath Falls, because he lacks the proper qualifications. Only in Medford, where corruption and crony capitalism rule, is Patridge even considered, because he'll deliver the pork for the Chamber, to your detriment. The Chamber has managed to install City Councilman Eli Matthews as the head of Travel Medford, and now having Patridge as city manager would give the Chamber even more control of the city.
If the City Council is at a deadline now, it's the council members' own fault. They've had adequate time to make a superior selection. It would be foolish to hire an eminently unqualified Rob Patridge just because we're at a deadline created by a bumbling, dysfunctional City Council.
Curt Ankerberg of Medford is a candidate for City Council. "

  • MEDFORD POLITICS

    Recruiting firm didn't pick Patridge

 

 

 

" A recruiting firm hired by the Medford City Council didn't recommend Rob Patridge for the city manager position because it said he lacked relevant experience.
The Mail Tribune obtained a copy of Waters Consulting Group's recommendations for manager applicants after the city was ordered to provide it by Jackson County District Attorney Beth Heckert.
Patridge was offered the job last week by a majority council vote, but Mayor Gary Wheeler has threatened to veto the decision.
The heavily redacted report showed recommendations for only the three finalists, who were announced publicly: Patridge, Jon Amundson, assistant city manager from Richland, Wash., and Jim Thompson, a retired city manager from Casa Grande, Ariz. Other finalists listed by Texas-based Waters were crossed out.
Councilor Dick Gordon said the recommendations played just a small part in the council's process to select the finalists for city manager.
"We took their recommendations and basically modified them," Gordon said. The recommendations were "to help us get started on this."
The council voted 5-3 for Patridge on July 21. Wheeler, who has said he doesn't think Patridge is a suitable candidate, has until Monday to veto it. The council would need a 6-2 vote to override his veto. Wheeler hadn't signed the veto as of Thursday afternoon.
The recruiting firm, which is being paid $24,500 for the search, indicated Patridge didn't fit the recruitment profile and had a lack of relevant experience.
Gordon said one candidate was taken off the list provided by the recruiting firm because of strenuous objections by Wheeler and other councilors. Gordon said he couldn't disclose the name of the candidate.
Also, two candidates who currently work for the city were not recommended by Waters. Gordon said he would not disclose their names. However, Mike Snyder, director of the Human Resources Department, had previously said he was applying for the city manager position.
"There were other local people who did apply," Gordon said.
Gordon said the criteria used by the recruiting firm didn't fully cover all the experience the council would consider in a candidate.
Waters recommended both Amundson and Thompson. Thompson was the finalist the council preferred until he withdrew his name for undisclosed reasons.
The council also added three additional names to Waters' list, Gordon said.
Many of the qualifications that the council sought in a candidate could be applied to Patridge, including "high personal energy and a positive approach," based on a brochure prepared by Waters.
The council, which has been looking for a city manager for a year, sought a candidate with a degree in business or public administration or a related field and a minimum of five years' senior managerial service in a municipality or the equivalent. Previous city manager or deputy city manager experience is also listed.
Councilor Daniel Bunn, who voted against Patridge, said the city hired a professional recruiting firm to help guide its search.
"I think the recommendation from Waters Consulting validated my opinion," Bunn said.
Patridge, a longtime local resident and current Klamath Falls district attorney, said he was unaware of the details of the process the council went through to pick city manager candidates.
"I was a nontraditional candidate who brings a strong Oregon public policy perspective to the table," he said.
While Patridge doesn't have a public administration degree, he said he does have a law degree.
"I viewed a law degree as higher than public administration," he said.
Patridge said his legal background would be an asset as the city threads its way through a number of issues, including risk management."

 

 

 

 

 

" Flexing Our Bias" Why Do They Let It Continue?

 

 

Medford mayor vetoes Patridge as city manager

-

 

 

Medford Mayor Gary Wheeler vetoed the hiring of Rob Patridge as city manager today, setting the stage for an override vote by City Council at its Thursday meeting.
"Medford should not be a training ground for someone who has no prior experience in city management," Wheeler wrote in a letter explaining his reasons for the veto.
Wheeler, who went to City Hall at lunchtime, signed the veto paperwork — his first in 12 years in office — and then an item was placed on the Thursday council agenda for a vote to see whether the required two-thirds majority of the council will override the veto.
On July 22, Wheeler announced he would veto the hiring of Patridge prior to the council's 5-3 vote in support.
To overturn the veto, the council would need a 6-2 vote if all councilors are present, but a two-thirds vote seems unlikely unless one of the councilors doesn't show at the Thursday meeting.
Patridge, a Medford resident and Klamath County district attorney, was selected from three finalists. The other two were Jon Amundson, assistant city manager in Richland, Wash., and James Thompson, retired city manager in Casa Grande, Ariz. Thompson withdrew his candidacy about a month ago.
"I'm deeply disappointed by the veto," said Patridge.
He said he's received support from former Mayor Al Densmore, nine former city councilors, Sen. Alan Bates, D-Medford, Rep. Peter Buckley, D-Ashland, Rep. Sal Esquivel, R-Medford, and many community leaders he has worked with over the years.
They "have stepped forward to let the council know that I have the qualifications to be Medford's city manager," Patridge said. In addition, Patridge said he's received personal calls, emails and other support.
"I know that I can help the city of Medford and work collaboratively with Mayor Wheeler and the entire City Council in developing and carrying out a vision for our community," he said. "I remain committed. I have signed a contract and wait for further direction from the council."
Patridge has cited his extensive record working as president of Covey Consulting in Medford, as a lawyer with Pacific Retirement Services and as general counsel for U.S. Rep. Greg Walden, R-Hood River. Patridge served in the Oregon House for six years beginning in 1999 and was a deputy district attorney for Jackson County for three years before his election. He was also a Medford city councilor for two years starting in 1996, when he was 27.
In his letter, Wheeler said Patridge does not have the executive and administrative qualifications that a city the size of Medford needs.
"The candidate has no municipal administrative background, nor has he shown an inclination to pursue a career in municipal government administration," Wheeler stated. "This career path would include a graduate degree in public administration (or a related field, such as urban planning, government finance, business management for example)."
Wheeler said by phone today that he called for the override vote Thursday because he thinks that all councilors will be in town.
Wheeler said he wasn't sure what the next step will be if the veto stands, but he said he understands that Amundson, the only other remaining finalist, appears to be in final interviews for another job offer.
He said the search firm, Waters Consulting, still under contract with the city, would be able to continue helping with the search process.
Councilor Dick Gordon, who voted for Patridge, said, "I am disappointed in the mayor for his shortsightedness."
If the veto stands, Gordon said the search for a city manager could start over.
"I have no idea how the council will react to this," he said.
Councilor Kevin Stine voiced his support for the mayor's veto Friday.
"I believe that we need a professional administrator, not someone whose top asset is receiving political endorsements," he said. "I hope that we do not delay, and that we attempt to once again to get a suitable person to do the job."
Stine said he criticized Patridge for continuing to be a candidate for the position even after he became aware the mayor was going to veto him.
"It is highly unlikely that a real professional administrator would want to be involved in this spectacle," Stine said.
Stine also criticized the council for conducting its city manager search largely outside the public eye.
"The process has lacked transparency and has been dragged out," he said.
Councilor Mike Zarosinski said he continues to support Patridge as a candidate and is convinced he would do a good job for Medford.
However, he said he understood the three councilors who voiced their opposition.
"They had perfectly reasonable reasons not to support Rob as a candidate," he said.
Zarosinski said that until today he wasn't sure the mayor would follow through on his veto threat, because this is the third time over the past year that he has made similar veto threats.
Councilor Chris Corcoran, who voted for Patridge, said, "The mayor has every right to do what he thinks is best."
Corcoran said he's not sure what the next step will be, or what the reaction the council will have to the veto.
"Do I agree with him?" Corcoran said. "We'll have a discussion in that regard."

  • OUR VIEW

    Our View: City manager selection was opaque

 

 -

 http://www.mailtribune.com/article/20160729/OPINION/160729590/0/SEARCH

-

 " Regardless of Rob Patridge's suitability as a city manager, the City Council's selection process fell far short of the transparency Medford residents deserve from their elected leaders.

In a series of closed-door meetings stretching for weeks, the council maintained complete silence with the public as a series of important developments occurred that would influence the eventual decision to offer Patridge the job.
Oregon law permits news reporters to attend executive sessions in the interest of keeping elected officials honest, but they may not report what occurs in those sessions as long as the proceedings involve one of several specific exemptions to the state's public meetings law. One of those exemptions is the hiring of a chief executive officer. It's important to note that while the law says the council may hold such sessions in private, nowhere does it say it must.
The three finalists for the job visited Medford for interviews and to meet the public on June 7. After that, nearly a month went by before the public learned that Patridge was to be offered the job — and then only because city staff published the fact in a meeting notice, apparently in error.
Key pieces of information remained shrouded in secrecy as the closed-door meetings went on:
  • The public was not told that the council's top choice, retired Casa Grande, Ariz., city manager James Thompson, had withdrawn until after Patridge was selected. The council still has not said why he withdrew, except that it happened after he returned to Medford for a second visit.
  • Many members of the public also had no idea of the deep division on the council over choosing Patridge until a July 19 Mail Tribune story reported on information that had leaked from the executive sessions and was being widely discussed in the community.
  • Council members knew — because Mayor Gary Wheeler had told them — that he intended to use his veto power to block Patridge if the council voted to appoint him. But the public didn't know that until the mayor announced it in a public meeting on July 21, when the council voted 5-3 to approve Patridge's contract, revealing the deep division over the choice.
  • Finally, the consulting firm the city hired to review all candidates for the job issued a list of applicants with a "yes" by the names of those who met the qualifications and a "no" next to those who did not. The Mail Tribune had to file a formal public records request to obtain the document after the city declined to release it. District Attorney Beth Heckert, empowered under state law to review disputed requests, ruled the document was public and directed the city to release it. Of the three finalists selected by the council, Johnson and Jon Amundson, assistant city manager in Richland, Wash., were designated "yes." Patridge received a "no." The council owes the public an explanation of why it chose to elevate to finalist status someone its own search firm said was not qualified.
  • Patridge may be the best choice remaining, or he may not. But the process to this point is hardly likely to inspire public confidence. The image of council members meeting behind closed doors for months without keeping their constituents up to date on important developments and then making what would seem an improbable choice has prompted comments that a "good old boy" network is running the city.
    In the July 21 council meeting, Councilor Chris Corcoran, a Patridge supporter, took exception to that characterization.
    "If someone knows where and when they meet, please let me know," Corcoran said. "I would really like to meet them."
    He could have saved some time by looking down the dais."

    2007   THE LONG WAIT: SWAT members from the Shasta County Sheriff’s office and the Redding Police Department wait for the call to catch a helicopter flight into a marijuana garden Monday.

    Shasta County agencies launch operation to eradicate marijuana

    " Two men, both armed with assault rifles, dangled from a buzzing helicopter's 100-foot-long cable above Whiskeytown Lake on Monday afternoon.

    Within minutes, the helicopter had lifted away from the parking lot at the Whiskey Creek boat ramp and had flown over the mountains and into the wilderness -- in search of a previously mapped-out marijuana garden on national park land near Whiskeytown National Recreation Area.

    One of the men earlier described the helicopter trip as "better than any ride at Disneyland."

    The first helicopter was soon followed by three others before it returned to pick up another pair of SWAT team members, both decked in army green. A Black Hawk helicopter circled the area and attracted the attention of a few passers-by.

    The helicopters were part of the largest multiagency marijuana eradication operation in Shasta County, which kicked off Monday.

       

    Shasta County Sheriff Tom Bosenko announced "Operation Alesia" that morning, along with Rep. Wally Herger, R-Chico, and Shasta-Trinity National Forest spokesman Mike Odle, at the U.S. Forest Service headquarters in Redding.The operation's name apparently is based on a historic battle -- derived from a major engagement between the Gau

    The operation's name apparently is based on a historic battle -- derived from a major engagement between the Gauls and the Romans in 52 B.C.

    The modern-day battle's objectives are to yank the marijuana from public lands, perform criminal investigations and reclaim the lands once the marijuana is removed, Bosenko said.

    SWAT members from the sheriff's office and the Redding Police Department will raid marijuana gardens in Shasta County every day for at least the next two weeks and 16 agencies will be assisting them. The sheriff's office will then continue its efforts to wipe out marijuana gardens until autumn, sheriff's Sgt. Janet Breshears said.

    On Monday morning, members of the National Guard flew into the Redding Municipal Airport to assist with the eradication operation. The assisting agencies will provide the manpower to remove the gardens' "infrastructure," such as tents, pesticides and miles of irrigation pipes. Bosenko said there have not been enough resources to do this in the past.

    In 2006, nearly 240,000 pot plants were pulled -- a nearly      

     

    $1 billion value -- ONE BILLION PLUS: REEL IN...

     

    and Bosenko thinks even more plants will be removed this year.

    It costs the American taxpayer more than $11,000 to restore 1 acre of national forest land impacted by illegal marijuana crops, Bosenko said.

    During the meeting, Herger said he supports Bosenko's operation because the Mexican drug cartels have "declared war on our country."

    "We are declaring war back on them," Herger said. "We are not going to stop until we're victorious."

    Medford builder Louis Mahar II arrested for assault

     

     

     "The co-owner of a large Medford construction company has been arrested after  assaulting a television producer at a graduation party.

    Louis Frederick Mahar II was arrested on allegations of fourth-degree assault, second-degree disorderly conduct, harassment and sexual harassment.

    Mahar, 40, of the 4000 block of Crystal Springs Drive in Medford, was lodged at the Jackson County Jail Tuesday night and released on his own recognizance at 3 a.m. Wednesday after he was arrested in relation to alleged incidents at a party last weekend for graduating nursing students at Agate Ridge Vineyard in Eagle Point. Mahar is co-owner of Mahar Brothers Construction Co., which builds residential homes.

    After three requests Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, the Jackson County Sheriff's Office on Friday declined to release a police report to the paper, saying the case is open and has been referred to the Jackson County District Attorney's Office, a representative said


      - --

     

    Chief Deputy District Attorney Jeremy Markiewicz also declined to release any reports.

    "We just received the reports this morning," Markiewicz said on Friday. "We'll review the case in the District Attorney's Office next week."

    Mahar has not been arraigned in Jackson County Circuit Court on any charges.

    The man whom Mahar allegedly assaulted, Shane Bishop, an Emmy award-winning producer for Dateline NBC who lives locally, declined to be interviewed but released a statement Friday.

    "This was an attack on me that was completely unprovoked. The assailant's aggression was witnessed by many, and as a result, he has been charged with several crimes. Any account to the contrary is total fabrication," Bishop said.

    In addition to his statement, Bishop said 17 witnesses corroborate his version of events.

    In an interview Friday, Mahar denied acting in a sexually inappropriate way toward any of the women at the party.

    Mahar said he asked Bishop's wife to show him were the bathrooms were. When he came back from using a portable toilet at the event, he said Bishop put his hand on Mahar's shoulder and accused Mahar of hitting on Bishop's wife.

    Mahar said he grabbed Bishop's shirt with two hands, the shirt tore off, Bishop fell and Mahar fell on top of him.

    Mahar said he was not aware that Bishop had suffered significant injuries, including fractures.

    Mahar, who has hired local defense attorney Carl Caplan, said he fears the accusations could damage him and his company.

    "Reputation is everything," he said. "We're going to work to get these charges dismissed."

    Caplan declined to comment.

    The paper asked to speak to any Agate Ridge Vineyard staff members who were working the night of the nurses' graduation party. A manager said the business would not comment."

    First Responder Shake Down: Darin Welburn Fired

    Fire District 5 terminates Chief Welburn

     

     

    " TALENT — Jackson County Fire District 5 Chief Darin Welburn was fired by the board of directors in a special meeting Tuesday. Welburn had been chief since March 2015 and with the district for 29 years.

    “It’s a very sad day,” said board member Bill Robertson. He and other directors declined to elaborate on what led to the decision. All five directors voted for the without-cause dismissal.

    “The board decided they wanted a different direction,” said Welburn when reached by phone. “It’s been a great career at Fire District 5. It’s time for someone else to pick up the reins.”

    Deputy Fire Chief Vince Lockett was named acting chief by the board. Board chair Judy Baalman was given additional administrative discretion to assist with the transition. She will consult with other board members on decisions.

    “It’s so we don’t have to wait until the next meeting to make decisions in the transition,” said Robertson, who made the motion to give Baalman the additional powers.

    “That gives the chair more power than usual in this emergency time,” said board attorney Martial Henault. “She can act on behalf of the board for a smooth transition.”

    Welburn will receive a severance package. His base salary for the 2015 calendar year was $107,000 and was scheduled to rise to $112,000 for 2016.

    Welburn was approaching 30 years of service and said he had been eligible to retire for several years. He said he had been considering how to end his time with the district over the next couple of years.

    “They have their reasons, and I’m going to honor that. I don’t want to second-guess what may be going on,” said Welburn. “It’s fine to just start that second chapter. I’ve got a lot of family stuff that will take up time.”

    Tuesday’s meeting was the second time in two days the board decided unanimously to fire Welburn. Board policy requires that two meetings with votes be held to make a termination final, Henault said.

    Welburn was named chief in March 2015. He was interim chief during January and February 2015 following the retirement of Chief Dan Marshall, who was in that position for 30 years. Welburn also had been a division chief and served with the Phoenix Fire Department.

    District 5 covers 115 square miles in the southern Rogue Valley and surrounding mountains and includes Talent and Phoenix. The next board of directors meeting is 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 18, in district headquarters, 5811 S. Pacific Highway."

    County Cracks Down On Whistleblower 

     

      - -

     


     " AS a long time blogger, Linda Lewis
    wrote about The Powers That Be in Jackson County and their indiscretions and possible criminal activities.

    Her motivation for seeking justice grew after the murder of her brother, Dave Lewis in September 2008 and the subsequent years that followed as Jackson County Sheriff Mike Winters was at the helm of investigating his death, and the case grew cold.

    In the middle of her grief, Lewis wrote about the people and events that led up to her brother’s murder as she tried to unravel what happened.

    Several indisputable facts are clear.

    On the early morning of 9/8/2008, an emergency call came in. There was a cabin fire out near the Keno access road on Dead Indian Memorial Road. Fire trucks were in the middle of responding when a second call came in about a half hour later advising of a second fire, approximately six miles away on the same road. Someone (or more than one person) intentionally poured an accelerant and lit Dave Lewis’ cabin on fire. The criminal(s) fled as Dave was killed-- he was tragically burned beyond recognition.

    As she searched for answers, several names kept popping up.

    One of those names was Burl Brim. She began to dig into Brim’s past and wrote about his helicopter business, Brim Aviation and other information she gathered. The FAA proposed a $220,000.00  civil penalty against Brim Aviation for allegedly conducting unauthorized external load operations. There were allegations made about his personal life, which Lewis said were all documentable. Brim helicopters were involved in a number of  crashes (2 fatalities: one aviation related and one excavation/construction related of Brim's  businesses) and Lewis carefully noted each one, as citizen journalists often do.

     

    In December 2015, Burl Brim and Brim Aviation got a judgment against Linda Lewis, prohibiting her from publishing verbally or written; on the internet; via email; through any media including news blog(s) or otherwise; or via any other means or medium of communication of any kind regarding Brim or Brim Aviation. The court essentially placed a gag order. Furthermore, Lewis was required to find and remove anything she had ever written about Brim on the Internet. Blogs, photos, statements and links were ordered to all be deleted.

    As Lewis was ordered to do that, the Jackson County Courts deleted her First Amendment right to free speech.

    You’d think that would be about as bad as it could get, but Judge Grensky took it a step further this month (March 2016) by issuing a nationwide warrant for her arrest. Although Jackson County courts are aware that Lewis resides in Alaska, and she had representation in court, it seems that the crime of whistleblowing will be met with great force here in Southern Oregon. In court documents, Judge Grensky “indicates he will issue a bench warrant and have Ms. Lewis incarcerated until she appears in court on this matter.” The impact of this ruling will have a chilling effect on independent media and may silence anyone who feels called to speak truth to power.

    The defendant, though his attorney Michael R. Levine, moves the court continue sentencing for six months, from October 10, 2016, until April 10, 2017, to enable the defendant to continue his recovery from a severe stroke.
    This motion is based on the
    attached declaration of counsel.
    Dated: September 1, 2016 /s/ Michael R. Levine

     

      - -- -

    DECLARATION OF MICHAEL R. LEVINE
    1. I am the attorney for the defendant who is 73 years of age and who
    resides in the area of Medford, Oregon.
    2. On April 18, 2006, Mr. Sky pleaded guilty to conspiring to give a
    gratuity to a government employee in violation of 18 U.S.C. §201(c)
    (l) (A). Sentencing is set for October 10, 2016.
    3. A few days after he entered his plea, on April 23, 2006, Sky suffered a
    severe stroke, as a result of which he was initially unable to walk, speak,
    or understand others.
    4. Sky entered the Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center on May 2, 2016,
    and remained there for a month. He was discharged on June 3, 2016.
    Since his discharge, he has been undergoing intensive rehabilitation. He
    is gradually regaining his faculties and is making reasonable progress
    towards rehabilitation.
    5. I have forwarded to the government a copy of Mr. Skys hospital
    discharge records. These records document his symptoms, treatment,
    diagnosis and prognosis.
    6. I recently spoke with Sky by telephone and find that he speaks slowly and
    with difficulty and that he frequently mispronounces and slurs words. He does not fully comprehend complex sentences. His thought sequencing is
    poor. I am advised he has difficulty moving his upper limbs and that he
    needs constant monitoring and assistance in everyday activities.
    7. I believe that at least an additional six months is needed before Sky will
    capable of helping me prepare for sentencing. I also believe this time is
    needed to ensure that Sky will be able to meaningfully participate in
    sentencing proceedings.
    8. I have communicated with AUSA Scott Bradford and advised him I
    would be seeking a lengthy continuance of the sentencing. He said he
    had no objection.
    9. In the interests of justice, the court should grant the motion.
     
     
    I DECLARE UNDER PENALTY OF PERJURY THAT THE FOREGOING IS
    TRUE TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE.
