Good on ya Chief - - -

Update (11/16/16 1:45 p.m.) — Days after NBC5 News told you Jackson County Sheriff Corey Falls might be leaving the county, it’s official. Falls is joining the Gresham Police Department as Director of Police Services and 21st Century Policing.

In a press release from the City of Gresham, Falls said, “I’m extremely excited to join the team and take part in this innovative approach to policing the City of Gresham is implementing. I look forward to working with Chief Sells and City leadership to continue the great service the City provides.”

Sheriff Falls confirmed to NBC5 News over the phone that he is accepting the Gresham position. He declined an on-camera interview request.

In a media release, Falls wrote in part, “As a kid who grew up in Jackson County this decision has weighed heavily on me but it is the best decision for my family. I want to thank the citizens of Jackson County for allowing me to serve as your Sheriff over the past two years. I also want to thank all the men and women at the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office. They have been open and receptive to the many improved professional changes we have made. It has been a pleasure working with them.”


And ole CW Smith still tried to interfere with Sheriff Falls, showing up uninvited at the office... almost as bad and outrageous, as Daniel Jordan calling the Nate Sickler Sheriff Office about Mahar...and his desbicable behavior.

Seriously. Get over yourselves. Grow up before you are totally grown old.


Hyatt Lake grown dry... True lore of Dead Indian road upon them all. Watch & See.

Corey Falls

Astoria, Oregon (PRWEB) June 20, 2012

Nowhere in America are the standards higher for a maritime pilot's license than the Columbia River Bar. These stringent licensure requirements are for good reason - based on its propensity to generate huge ship-destroying waves, the Columbia River Bar is the world's most dangerous entrance to a major commercial waterway.

Despite the danger, an elite corps of ship captains from throughout the U.S. has been attracted to the unique challenge of keeping the Columbia River open year-round to commercial navigation.

The long history of dedication of the Columbia River Bar Pilots providing service in extraordinarily dangerous conditions is exemplified in Captain George Flavel's efforts to save the "General Warren" in 1852. As he left the stricken ship stuck in the sands of Clatsop Spit to summon help, the ship captain called out "Pilot, you will come back?" Flavel shouted, "If I live, I will return." Amazingly, he did, only to find that all hands had perished.

The Columbia River Maritime Museum has published the first book written on the Columbia River Bar, its pilots and their equipment, written by maritime industry attorney Michael E. Haglund and illustrated by Eric Baker.

Founded in 1962, the Columbia River Maritime Museum is one of the finest maritime museums in the nation and the official maritime museum of the State of Oregon. Visit the Columbia River Maritime Museum website for more information. "

Gil Gilbertson-Mike Winters Bad County Sheriff

Posted on June 19, 2017 at 6:15 AM

Gilbertson and cohort Winters VOTED OUT OF OFFICE....by the people, of the people, for the people.


-Mike Winters voted out of office.

Just in the nick.  Deputies posted: " he ruled through fear and intimidation. Voted out by 98% of the deputies." And look what he did to good man Bob Sergi & Jake Franklin. For shame on your sick soul Michael Scott Winters. May God have mercy & you get yourself into a proper progam and professional help. Greed, hubris, ego.

When did you know about the sexual molestation? Because the victim has stated you did. Affidavit, interview and coming testimony.

- - --

Yet wants to blame articles, truth, blogs, tweets and others.

The truth never changes.

Hubris, arrogance, ego...voted out. GMO>


Joe Rice. Who knows a heep of facts !

- Burl Brim pilot suspended for, " endangering the lives of others."

-  Chinese police/military trained with FLIR according to employees.

Danner Boot Commercial and Smoke & Mirrors for, " this is what we do."


Because Mercenary is not funny.

A mercenary[1] is a person who takes part in an armed conflict who is not a national or a party to the conflict and is "motivated to take part in the hostilities by the desire for private gain."


" It's all about the money, the old cowboy said."


- Good cop Jake Franklin fired when trying to arrest

one of their retired deputy friends...who was resisting arrest...freed to go

then paid 30-K by Danny Jordan, Mike Winters & John Rachor et.al.  Corruption runs to the bone.


Somehow the ego got in the way of the truth...and their friends, and their money needs, and their corruption.Utter misuse of the badge; old Mississippi style injustice. GMO.




Called in for questioning: The sheriff’s changing resume

GIL GILBERTSON Josephine County (next to Jackson )

By Melissa McRobbie of the Daily Courier


Gil Gilbertson. Bad Sheriff.com




" One might do a double-take when reading the impressive resume of Josephine County Sheriff Gil Gilbertson: Service in several branches of the military? Leadership roles in war-torn Kosovo?

Over the years, especially around election time, questions have surfaced in letters to the editor and elsewhere about those credentials, many of which are difficult to verify.

Now locked in a race for a third term as sheriff against Grants Pass police Officer Dave Daniel, Gilbertson's career highlights have changed in the Josephine County Voters' Pamphlet since he first ran for office nearly eight years ago.

The November 2014 Voters' Pamphlet contains a few titles that weren't there in past years, including "chief of police," "chief state patrol," and "senior (colonel) military liaison." The list also mentions service in Bosnia, Kosovo, Iraq and Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina.

The Daily Courier investigated a number of points in the sheriff's resume, many of which stood up well to the scrutiny. Others proved difficult to confirm, while some left questions about the scope of Gilbertson's responsibilities.

The titles "chief of police" and "chief state patrol" appear to refer to posts Gilbertson held in Kosovo as second-in-command of a regional police center and later as head of the traffic unit at police headquarters in the city of Pristina.

Gilbertson declined to clarify these points and others by phone or in person for this story, saying the newspaper already checked into his background during previous election cycles. He answered some, but not all, questions emailed to him by the Daily Courier.

Military service

and private business

Gilbertson did, indeed, serve in several branches of the military, including two stints with the Iowa Air National Guard from 1980 to 1985 and 1991-92, according to Iowa National Guard spokesman Col. Greg Hapgood. Between those time periods, he was in the U.S. Army Reserve in Davenport, Iowa.

Hapgood said his records also show that Gilbertson served in the U.S. Navy from 1965 to 1968 and in the Navy Reserve from 1968 to 1971. His active duty was during the Vietnam War, and Gilbertson said he served in the Gulf of Tonkin and elsewhere during that period.

Gilbertson's resume also states he served in the Army National Guard. Hapgood said he has no record of Gilbertson serving in the Iowa Army National Guard, and Gilbertson did not answer an emailed question about that service. Hapgood said it is possible Gilbertson's Army National Guard service records are held in a state other than Iowa.

Gilbertson earned an associate degree in police science from Hawkeye Community College in Iowa in 1982, and received a bachelor's degree in public administration from Upper Iowa University in 1990, school officials confirmed.

He began his law enforcement career with the Waterloo Police Department in 1975, and worked there as a police officer until 1991, when he moved to Josephine County, where his father lived.

His resume states he was president of a private business called Special Tactics Association that provided law enforcement training to civilian and military personnel in the U.S. and abroad. Iowa state records show the business was created in June 1988 by "D.L. Gilbertson," of Waterloo, Iowa. The business address is listed as the same as the owner's home address. Gilbertson, whose full name is Daryld Lynn Gilbertson, later used a Grants Pass address for the business.

Gilbertson has also said that in 1988 he cofounded the International Law Enforcement Training Group, which provided police training and consulting services to clients including the U.S. Army, the Marine Corps and the Air Force. Iowa and Oregon state online business name records did not show a business by that name, and Gilbertson has not clarified where it was based.


Gilbertson said he served on the International Police Task Force in Bosnia and Herzegovina from May 1996 to May 1997, acting as a senior liaison to a NATO commander. There, he said, he developed crime analysis and intelligence units in several cities and supervised the training of Bosnian civilian police, and later took charge of an "intelligence fusion center" that shared information between the task force and NATO.

The police task force was part of the United Nations Mission in Bosnia and Herzegovina, launched in 1995, and its intent was to help locals carry out law enforcement responsibilities as defined by the Dayton Peace Agreement, which ended the Bosnian War. Because this was so long ago and because the scope of the international effort was so broad, the Daily Courier was unable to independently verify Gilbertson's role there.

Former Portland Police Chief Mark Kroeker served as deputy commissioner of operations for the police task force beginning in October 1997, but his time in Bosnia did not overlap with Gilbertson's. Kroeker told the Daily Courier the task force had 2,400 members, and confirmed that there were indeed "liaison designees" to the NATO bases. Kroeker also said the American contingent of the U.N. mission consisted of non-military police personnel.


Gilbertson later worked in Kosovo, and has often invoked his time there as something that helped prepare him for the challenges of running the cash-strapped Josephine County Sheriff's Office.

The "Meet the Sheriff" section on the Sheriff's Office website states he was sent to Kosovo in October 1998 and assumed the post of "chief of operations" for the United States Kosovo Diplomatic Observer Mission. The mission brought dozens of diplomats from various countries to Kosovo to act as independent observers during the Kosovo War.

Retired U.S. diplomat Shaun Byrnes, who was head of the mission at that time, said Gilbertson was there as a civilian employee of the international contractor DynCorp.

"Gil was hired, like a lot of other Americans with his kind of background were hired, to help supplement the Foreign Service and military members of the Observer Mission," Byrnes said in a phone interview from his home in Virginia. Byrnes spoke highly of Gilbertson, calling him "somebody you could always count on."

He said Gilbertson was not chief of operations for the entire mission, but that he did hold a position similar to that in one of the mission's outposts. In response to an email inquiry about that point, Gilbertson wrote that he was "third in line" of the entire mission as chief of operations — a description Byrnes said was accurate at the end of the mission in 1999.

Gilbertson was in Kosovo for the January 1999 Racak massacre, in which dozens of ethnic Albanians were killed by Serbian militants. Byrnes said unarmed Observer Mission staff got between the two parties. "Our practice, which was dangerous but had been successful, was we always tried to put ourselves between the Serbs and the Albanians," Byrnes said.

The Serbs went right through the line of international observers, who had no authority to stop them, but Byrnes said he is still proud of their actions. He said Gilbertson was "part of the decision to stay and do what we could to help."

According to Gilbertson, he was transferred from the Observer Mission to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, an intergovernmental organization focused on international security issues, and that he became deputy director of a regional OSCE center in the city of Pristina under the umbrella of the U.N. That claim is backed up by official transcripts from the Slobodan Milosevic trial at The Hague that identify Gilbertson as "deputy head" of Regional Center 5.

His current LinkedIn professional networking page states that he was a "police chief" in Pristina. It appears likely that this title refers to his job at the regional center.

Gilbertson has also said that between January 2002 and January 2004, he commanded Kosovo's "National Highway Patrol," supervising 500 officers. This appears to be the basis of the "chief state patrol" title in the current Voters' Pamphlet.

However, several people interviewed by the Daily Courier who worked in Kosovo at various times, including Byrnes and former Grants Pass police Chief Ron Schwartz, said they were not aware of a national highway patrol in Kosovo.

Asked to clarify this, Gilbertson said by email that he was chief of traffic working at the police headquarters in Pristina. He said the structure of the traffic unit was similar to that of the Oregon State Police, and that a comparable title in the U.S. would be "superintendent."

Senior (colonel)

military liaison

Gilbertson also states that his title during some of his various missions was "colonel." That would be a civilian title, but Gilbertson said there was little distinction between military and non-military personnel in the overseas environments in which he worked.

Gilbertson worked for DynCorp, which is similar to the international military contractor Blackwater, during at least part of his time in the Balkans.

A DynCorp International spokeswoman said her records show that Gilbertson was employed by DynCorp from November 2000 to September 2001. She said those records might be incomplete; other records could be with a foreign affiliate of the company or with another company that formerly owned DynCorp. A 2001 DynCorp job listing for civilian police, or CIVPOL, contains quotes from several DynCorp employees. One is Gilbertson, who is identified as a CIVPOL officer.

Gilbertson also said that, through DynCorp, he spent several weeks in Iraq in July 2005 as a police adviser, and assisted with the response to Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans that September."

 " The girls wore their best dresses, the boys their best — suits and ties as music played in the background, the room decorated with — balloons and streamers, a disco ball rotating from above — a perfect setting — for a high school formal.

But the event at the Historic Ashland Armory was a bit — different - instead of boys taking girls on a date, the girls' fathers — had the honor of escorting them to the formal.

The brainchild of two Ashland High School seniors, the — father-daughter formal on Saturday gave girls and their dads a chance — to spend a memorable evening together. More than 50 people attended the — event. While the formal was designed for the entire community, the majority — of those who attended were from the high school.

AHS senior Sarah C.  was quite pleased her dad, Tim C., — escorted her to the formal.

"It's good to be with a gentleman," Sarah said. "I think — it's fun to be with your dad."

Tim C. was quite impressed with the work done to make — the night a reality.

For C., it was a good way to spend some quality time — with his daughter.

"It's such a nice thing to have a special evening with — your daughter," he said. "That relationship needs more recognition in — our world. It's a very creative idea."

The formal was a senior project put together by Brittany — Wise and Kari B.

Kari said they hoped the event would be a way for daughters — and their dads - or father figures - to have a nice evening together. — The formal consisted of dinner, dancing and a raffle.

"We're both going off to college and we wanted this time — with our fathers and father figures," she said. "You don't really find — a lot of events you can go to with your parents."

The girls hope another group of seniors will continue — the event next year, perhaps having a mother/son formal, and rotate between — the two formats each year.

Burl Brim of Ashland, Brittany's uncle, was her escort — to the formal.

He was proud of what she and Kari accomplished.

"It was a big task and she saw it through," he said. "I — think it's a neat thing. It's common in the south, but you never hear — of it out here. It's a good thing to do."

Money from the formal will go toward two college scholarships — that will go to seniors who display excellence in community service. The — scholarship will be named after Sue Graham, the volunteer coordinator — at the high school.

"She does so much, so we wanted to give something back — to her," Wise said.

Graham was humbled the girls started a scholarship in — her name and impressed they were able to come up with and coordinate such — an undertaking.

"It's great what they're doing," she said. "I'm impressed — with their commitment and dedication to this event and how they're involving — the community in such a wonderful event."

Judge Ron Grensky

Posted on June 10, 2017 at 6:30 AM


Dishonorable Ronald Grensky,

A Poor Example of a Judge

Judge Ronald Grensky

By Joseph Snook

Investigative Reporter

Medford, OR - Out of the twenty-seven judicial districts for the State of Oregon, Judge Grensky ranks in the bottom 2% of all judges according to The Robing Room, an online website that publicly reviews Oregon Judges. Out of the 173 Circuit Court Judges in Oregon, there are only three Judges with worse ratings than Grensky. Notably, almost half of Judge Gresky's poor reviews are from attorney's. The Oregon Court of Appeals is currently looking into how many cases Grensky has had overturned. And now, Grensky's judicial authority has come into question yet again.

Grensky's most recent miscarriage of justice took place in an ongoing child custody case between Christi MacLaren and her ex, Sean Lenzo, over their six-year-old daughter.

Christi with her daughter

Judge Grensky removed custody from Christi on Oct. 13, 2015 (Judge Grensky formally granted status quo custody on May 19, 2016, although daugther has been with Lenzo since Oct. 13, 2015) when Department of Human Services (DHS) Child Caseworker, Cori McGovern, testified that Chirsti had mentally abused her own daughter. Christi had previously reported that Sean Lenzo (biological father) had rubbed, "magic cream" on her daughter's vagina in a really fast motion until bleeding/severe burning occurred – this according to her daughter. Next, the young girl reportedly claimed Lenzo took a picture of her vagina while it was bleeding, eventually showing her the photo as he laughed. This allegation, while cruel in nature, might not be "sexual" as originally reported.

Eventually the father was cleared by police after a sex abuse polygraph exam was passed. The test only included three questions provided by Child Caseworker, Cori McGovern. Other forms of abuse, including torture - were never explored during the polygraph. Once the court-inadmissible test was passed, Child Casworker McGovern turned around and labeled the mother a "mental abuser", which Judge Grensky used to grant the father custody – the same person the daughter had identified as her abuser.


click to read http://www.usobserver.com/archive/march-17/dishonorable-ronald-grensky-a-poor-example-of-a-judge.htm

Apparently, the abuse has continued since Grensky granted Lenzo custody. Since removing the child from her protective parent, twelve new claims and documentation of child abuse and torture at the hands of Lenzo have been brought to the attention of authorities – none of which are sexual in nature.

Sean Lenzo's picture from a dating site: "That's a joint not a cigarette"

It was reported that the daughter will not disclose these allegations to anyone other than her mother, as she does not trust the agency (Department of Human Services) because they "lied to her" by telling her she would be safe, then removed her from the very person she wants to be with - her mother, and placed her with the man she identified as the abuser. The child is also reportedly in fear of retaliation by Lenzo, not only against her, but her mother and her mother's family members, which was also reported. Instead, the brave six-year-old has asked to talk with Judge Grensky – to date, he has not allowed this.

Although the claim that Christi had mentally abused her daughter was later reversed by Cori McGovern's own superiors in a formal letter, Judge Grensky's actions have shown that he'd rather believe a child caseworker who does not have the ability or credentials to diagnose. Not only would he believe the caseworker over her own superiors, he has seemingly taken the caseworker's word over Licensed Clinical Social Worker Victoria Bones, who stated, "I recommend all contact (daughter and Lenzo) stop immediately, including supervised visits." Victoria Bones has the ability to diagnose, unlike McGovern, who has a dark past (1, 2) as a child caseworker.

Finally, almost a year and a half later, trial for custody was initiated. Judge Grensky said there would only be a one day trial against the wishes of the attorneys involved. A one day trial that started on Jan. 19, 2017 has now turned into four days, scattered over several months. The final day of trial (if several more days are not necessary) is now scheduled for April 13, 2017.


Judge Grensky has clearly shown his lack of knowledge in this case, which was likely influenced by his own actions, allowing the trial to last several months. He has forgotten several key pieces of evidence and testimony, even apologizing at one point for his memory loss. His actions thus far have clearly demonstrated that he does not want to remove custody from the father, even in the face of overwhelming evidence, misconduct, and violation of orders by Lenzo to further keep the child from her mother.

One witness recently stated, "If Judge Grensky's actions in court are any sign of how he will rule, the mother will not get custody..."


An attorney who has read transcripts of recent hearings, but is not associated directly with this case stated, "Judge Grensky has violated nearly every judicial canon (code of judicial conduct) there is!"


Here are just a few violations named by the attorney:


3.2 Ensuring the Right to be Heard

"A judge shall accord to every person who has a legal interest in a proceeding, or to that person's lawyer, the right to be heard according to law."


Christi MacLaren told Judge Grensky that her daughter wants to talk to him, and that she also wants the same. She stated this several times, saying that her daughter said she was told by Stacey Hubbard, one of the counselors that, "The Judge is the person who makes decisions." Judge Grensky completely ignored this testimony, denying the young girl her right to be heard which is now part of the court record. Judge Grensky also disallowed other witness testimony by initially saying there would only be a one day trial, preventing subpoena's for other witnesses that Christi wanted to testify.

3.7 Decorum, Demeanor, and Communication with Jurors

(B) "A judge shall be patient, dignified, and courteous to litigants, jurors, witnesses, lawyers, court staff, court officials, and others with whom the judge deals in an official capacity..."

Judge Grensky is an, "arrogant pompous piece of garbage."

-- Senator Alan Olsen, Vice Chair of DHS' Oversight Committee

Judge Grensky stated there would only be a one day trial with knowledge there were around twenty witnesses subpoenaed to testify. Since Judge Grensky did not allow proper scheduling, this trial will touch its fourth calendar month before it's likely resolved. His actions have been anything but patient according to what several witnesses and myself have seen. His rude demeanor, as referenced by comments at the Robing Room have also been very clear in this case. Judge Grensky has been extremely rude at times to both parents' attorneys and the parents themselves. Judge Grensky's neglect of courtesy has also extended to several of the witnesses. After reviewing transcripts of this case, Oregon Senator Alan Olsen, a champion for children, referred to Judge Grensky as an, "arrogant pompous piece of garbage."

3.8 Encouraging Settlement and Serving as a Settlement Judge

"A judge may encourage parties to a proceeding and their lawyers to consider settling matters in dispute but shall not act in a manner that coerces any party into settlement."

According to direct witnesses, Judge Grensky has repeatedly pushed for settlement after settlement in this case. He has also done so on court record. This case is now approaching two years without resolve. All parties to this case reportedly owe, or have paid their attorney's a combined $100,000.00 in legal fees, yet Judge Grensky still pushed for settlement. Is pushing for settlement after settlement while clients pay $100k in legal fees not enough to be considered coercion?

3.10 Disqualification

(2)(b), "Acting as a lawyer in the proceeding."

Judge Grensky has bordered on giving legal advice in this trial, if not directly providing it, and has asked more questions than one of the attorneys involved, Robert Good. Grensky questioned several witnesses over and over and over again...


Judge Grensky has made outlandish comments throughout trial, bolstering the belief that the father will retain custody when the evidence (two passed mental health exams by mother - expert testimony stating the child should live with her mother, and wants to live with her mother and her only other sibling - and mother being cleared by the caseworkers superiors in a formal letter, disproving Christi as causing mental abuse) has clearly shown the mother should have never lost custody to begin with.

Sadly, it appears by Judge Grensky's actions that he will side with an admitted meth and cocaine abuser, Sean Lenzo. Although Lenzo claims to have several years of sobriety, he was never given a urine analysis to confirm or deny drug use before he was awarded custody. Lenzo was in drug court as recent as 2012 according to records. Judge Grensky also has knowledge of these facts. Judge Grensky also knows the child's mother has a spotless record with no criminal convictions.

"My experience today revealed a threat to our community, someone who would harm for no particular reason, and be incredibly rude to all parties in the process. I witnessed a person with power acting dishonorably today - both legally and ethically. I hope this message is seen by someone who has influence. It's a 'slap in the face' to the tax payer to allow this in our community justice system." -- John Heaslet (the Robing Room)

If you are unfortunate enough to end up in front of Judge Grensky, I would suggest that you communicate with your attorney about your options to recuse him.


I've spent the last ten years reporting on criminal and civil cases across the United States. As a reporter working predominately in courts, it perturbs me to see a case like this. Judge Grensky is without doubt the worst Judge I've witnessed to date and the saddest part is, people like him are rarely, if ever, held accountable. I truly believe Grensky will rule in favor of Lenzo, thus causing more legal fees, another case added to his appeals record, and a child forced to continue living with her alleged abuser, and that injustice is what saddens me most.

Edward Snook's Note: While some of the following information might be a bit repetitive, I believe this case and this helpless little girl to be important enough to add my first-hand knowledge.

Cori McGovern

Cori McGovern (DHS)

Christi McLaren first began taking her young daughter to professionals in June of 2015, because her daughter disclosed to her that she had been abused by her biological Father, Sean Lenzo. Subsequently, her daughter was taken to a court appointed, LCSW, ACHP-SW, Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over thirty years of experience. This well qualified professional believed that this young girl had been abused and she went to the extreme of recommending that she have no contact with Sean Lenzo at that time. Caseworkers Matthew Brody and Cori McGovern totally ignored this finding and they kept this child with the very person she claimed abused her. For the record, this girl described to me long ago exactly what Sean Lenzo did to her. What she described to me is absolute abuse, severe enough to ruin this child. I promise both of these incompetent and “dangerous” caseworkers that this young girl’s abuse is going to become an albatross to them – one they will find very difficult to rid themselves of!

Is This Justice?

A trial commenced on January 19, 2017, in front of Jackson County Circuit Court Judge Ronald D. Grensky. It was originally scheduled for 2 days and then cut to one by Grensky. The trial did not conclude on the 19th. Grensky continued the trial to February 2, 2017. The trial did not conclude on the 2nd. Grensky continued the trial to March 7, 2017. The trial did not conclude on the 7th. Grensky continued the trial to April 13, 2017. We will soon see if the case concludes or if Grensky continues yet again. Christi’s daughter is currently six-years-old, however, at one point in this trial Grensky stated her age to a witness and he was a year and a half off. Obviously, when a judge holds a trial one day at a time, with huge gaps between days, he gets quite forgetful of the facts.

Christi MacLaren

Sean Lenzo has had numerous drug charges and has admitted on the record that he has used Heroin, Meth and Cocaine. Christi Maclaren has a spotless record, in fact, she supported their daughter for years without any financial support whatsoever from Lenzo. There has been more than enough evidence provided on the record for Grensky to have concluded that this precious young child should be with her Mother, however, this poor excuse of a human being continues this complete charade, knowing that he is going to leave the girl with her “abusive” father.


Joseph Pulitzer once quipped, “Newspapers should have no friends, but seek the truth.” The US~Observer takes this quote very serious. In the pursuit of this ideal, we assure all involved that each and every fact in this case will be made public and we also guarantee each and every player involved that their friends, relatives and communities will know exactly and factually what they have done and not done regarding their lack of protection of this very special young girl and her exceptional Mother.

MEDFORD -- A hash oil explosion has sent a man to the hospital and destroyed a house and garage.

The Mail Tribune reports the explosions and fire on Thursday also damaged two nearby homes.

Greg Kleinberg of Medford Fire-Rescue says there were a couple hundred containers of butane in the garage.

Marijuana plants were found in a room.

Butane is used in the process of extracting hash oil from marijuana.

Medford police Lt. Kevin Walruff said illegally producing hash oil is a felony in Oregon.

Property records say Jackson County Circuit Judge Ron Grensky owns the property along with some others in Medford.

He lives in Jacksonville and could not be reached for comment.

Marijuana is legal in our state. Be happy with that and stop all this nonsense of trying to make something more powerful (such as hash oil) because you can't be happy with being able to go down to the local pot store and buy some really powerful stuff.

This reminds me of the story about how my dad, in his youth, tried to make a functioning distillery...same result...BANG!

Dear Hearts,

I heard. The responses to that moronic idiot. It almost seems like s/he is articulating this to you solely based on experience with that ridiculous IDIOT. You are a fighter and rightfully so. We don't take crap from BAD people nor do we cower down to evil.

At this point you truly have nothing to lose and everything to gain. You need us, support team with a spine of steel to stand up to those inbred minions in OR. Screw them.....attack, attack, attack and that includes that CREEPY, greasy little perverted child molester. He cheated on the new one the first year!  Was proudly telling people !


( FYI when I was helping Ms. D., the bullies called the cops on us and there were about 10 cop cars lined up back to back across the street..but I did not get arrested HAHA)!

This is what cowards like the stooges  do when we get in their faces and they don't know how to handle pure unselfish determination. Good always takes longer than evil. I think that is just God's natural law. A very smart person once told me that it takes many many trades to build a beautiful building (architects, carpenters, plumbers, roofers, etc. and only ONE flipping moron with a match to burn that beautiful bldg. down. That stuck with me....and in the end, when caught or in their minds,  jail is hell on earth.....Look at that football player Hernandez that hung himself in jail at 28 years old.


That woman witch is an asinine little moron who tries to follow the herd. Be grateful that she is that flipping stupid. She probably rehearses her "little speech" to her 10 cats the night before she lectures. I'm guessing that she may do other "favors" for that blowhard. He is a mean, psychotic prick but he is NOT smart. If he were he would have been retired years ago......and OOOPS you're still here making his life miserable along with that vile little pervert. Imagine the fight and profound stress that both of them are experiencing. How delicious.

That mediator is a pure ahole and if you don't move to alert others, it is a mistake. Yes you may get another ahole l, but that will be more evidence of the unfair and fascist cartel up there. At this point they have done everything in their power to silence you to marginal avail and OOOOPS here you are still fighting and frustrating the hell out of them.

You and I are both warriors and we fight for what is right....don't let some poor woman that he yelled at while getting his jollies off for doing so dissuade you from doing what YOU KNOW is right. I am 100000% behind your decision. Report him....the system/cartel/ judicial register has to change! OR is not a democracy it is like living in a dictatorship and that is not what our ancestors fought for.


You are invincible, brilliant, cunning, and you will beat them . There is something in both of our DNA's that does not allow atrocities like this to go. Who in their right mind is going to give a child molesting pervert a pass?

Love you, hugs and amazing wishes for you.

Who wrote the affidavits, who exactly decided on the $20,000.00   who knew  or didn't know about the sexual molestation?

Why did Kellerman call Sneak Preview, Rogue Community Press, Maggie Rose and BLW to try and, " intimidate them into silence ?"  
Or destroying or removing their articles? Or threatening to sue them? Or trying to schmooze them? That is a lot of questionable actions by attorneys. And they wonder where the bad jokes come from?  

What did Lauren Keller, who sued Mike Winters, have to say about Winters'  attorney's and their firm, and, the way they were handling the case...  



Stephanie Burke of Hornecker-Cowling,  
" called to intimdate the victim of sexual molestation / incest."

 The victim to testify against Burke & lawfirm's client, Burl Brim jr.





Mike Winters was then-sheriff. When did he know about the sexual molestation? While the victim was still under 18?

Did Mike Winters  cover-up for Burl Brim who he contracted helicopter operations with? Mike Winters knew, according to the victim, "that she was being incested." Did Winters know this, while she was still a minor? Or age-of-majority, as Brim likes to call it.

" Southern Oregon is a rat's nest of corruption and snake pit... of ego & greed," the old cowboy said. 











ROY D. REAGAN, et al.,




CIVIL NO. 94-425-JO




I Gary R. Eitel, State as follows:


. I am the relator in this qui tam action on behalf of the plaintiff, United States of America, pursuant to the False Claims Act, 31 U. S.C. ~3730. I am a U.S. citizen over the age of 21 and am competent to make this declaration.


2. I am a former military combat pilot. I flew over 300 combat missions in Vietnam, totaling over 500 hours of flight time. For my service, I received a Presidential citation, the Air Medal with 12 Oak Leaf Clusters, and four Bronze Battle Stars.


3. I am currently a professional pilot with approximately 11,000 hours pilot time. I have the senior ratings of my profession, including airline transport pilot with jet ratings. I am also an FAA certified flight instructor, airframe and powerplant mechanic, and aircraft maintenance inspector.




In April-May 1989, while employed at Evergreen International Airlines, I was told that at some future time I could be asked to fly United States government C-130 aircraft for Evergreen. The aircraft were based at Evergreens Marana, Arizona base and operated under the guise of the Forest Service However, the planes were used by Evergreen for non-firefighting purposes, such as carrying cargo. I later learned that these aircraft (of which I gained knowledge in April-May 1989) were the same planes that were transferred to defendants, which were first delivered to Evergreen's Marana Airbase. See Paragraphs 31, 35


My knowledge that government C-130 aircraft were coming into Evergreen's Marana airbase under the guise of the Forest Service concerned me, because I might be required to fly the aircraft on questionable or illegal flights for non-firefighting purposes.

I reported this to a Department Of Defense agent I had known for a number of years, Tom Miller. I have attached the declaration of Tom Miller hereto, which confirms my report to him. Exh. 1. I have known Mr. Miller for over 20 years. He has been an agent of the Department of Defense, and then the Federal Aviation Administration, for as long as I have known him.


6. From 1970 until his death in late 1992, I maintained contact with an individual named Jack Chisum, I first met Jack Chisum in 1970 while flying for the U.S. Forest Service. Jack was my immediate aviation supervisor. Through the years, Jack and I kept in contact concerning our friendship and business acquaintance. In 1990, I provided information to Mr. Chisum that Evergreen had access to surplus military C-130 aircraft, which I later learned were the aircraft at issue in this suit. Mr. Chisum needed access to C-130 aircraft and had inquired of my knowledge.


7. In the fall of 1991, I was pursuing government aviation opportunities for myself and certain consulting clients. I came across an industry magazine, Conservation Aeronautics, that reported a just started Forest Service C-130 and P-3 air tanker program.




In Summer 1991, I read an article in the magazine that stated that C-130 and P-3 aircraft, former military planes, were being used by private contractors for firefighting for the US Forest Service. Through the fall of 1991, Mr. Wood and I maintained contact, and he gave me extensive information in our discussions which he asked I keep confidential. One piece of confidential information that he eventually gave me was that an individual by the name of Roy Reagan was involved in getting A-10s connected with the Forest Service.


8. Later in the fall of 1991, I communicated with Jack Chisum and learned he was having difficulties because he and others were operating C-130 aircraft in Kuwait and other surrounding countries,. Jack Chisum explained to me the following:


He and another man by the name of Woody Grantham had interests in a company called T&G Aviation a/k/a Douglas County Aviation. Jack indicated that he was a vice president in the company and that he had a financial interest in it as well. Jack went on to say that T&G's C130, aircraft were doing work for Southern Air and Evergreen in Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi. He said the paperwork was in place to show that the Bechtol Corp. and a company out of Alaska called Martech were using the C-130s for routine oil field work, when in fact, it was other kinds of work, including moving weapons.

Jack said he had the proper paperwork in hand allowing T&G's operation of the C-130s in Kuwait and surrounding companies under the cover story, but that turf fighting between Evergreen and Southern Air had put a spotlight on T&G's operations. Jack went on to say that Southern Air and Evergreen were trying to eliminate T&G from doing the type of work that Southern Air and Evergreen had traditionally done, such as hauling guns and other contraband. In later conversations, Chisum told me the details of a related Forest Service exchange program cover story.


9. In October 1991, I contacted the US Forest Service concerning the aviation magazine article depicting a C-130 air tanker. The Forest Service officials responsible for the aircraft exchange were extremely uncooperative.:mad:

I was told many things by the Forest Service which turned out to be untrue. For example, the Forest Service told me the new program merely involved 3 C130 aircraft (when it involved more than 22 C-130s and more than 6 P-3sand as many as 100 A-10 fighter jets and that, for all practical purposes, it was closed to all newcomers. I was told by the Forest Service the program could




reopen if certain details could be worked out by the General Accounting Office concerning transfer of surplus military aircraft. Exhs. 2-6


10. I had been referred to the Forest Service Aviation office in Washington, D.C. by Tom Wood. I called this office and was told that Fred Fuchs was the Forest Service in charge of the air tanker program. I spoke with Mr. Fuchs briefly and followed up that same day with a letter by facsimile requesting information about the military aircraft exchange program. Exhs. 2-4 . In the ensuing month to two months, I repeatedly contacted Fuchs' office to gain information about the exchange program. Fuch's and his subordinates stonewalled, promising to but then not sending information about it. Exh 6


After originally communicating with the forest service in Oct. 1991, I contacted the General Services Administration about the new C-130 air tanker program and received an entirely different picture than what was told to me by the Forest Service. I was told by the General Counsels office of GSA that there were 22 C-130and 6 P-3A aircraft involved.


12. I was surprised at the coincidence between Chisum's disclosure about tags C-130s and Fuch's refusal to be more forthcoming about the Forest Service exchange program which involved C-130s. This reminded me of the use of C-130s by Evergreen for non-firefighting purposes under the guise of the Forest Service in 1989, and it turned out that I now was dealing with the same aircraft.


13. In Nov. 1991, in a phone conversation with Jack Chisum, we again discussed the subject of T&G's C-130 predicament. Chisum admitted at the time his own difficulties with flying C-130 aircraft in Kuwait was connected with the Forest Service program about which I had inquired to the government. Chisum expressed grave concerns for himself and his company and he stated he felt he was being set up by his competitors, with the help of certain people at the Forest Service.


4 I


n November 1991, Chisum informed me there were other people and companies that were doing illegal things in the Forest Service air tanker program. He disclosed to me that the contractors who had received military aircraft from the Forest Service knew in advance that they would use the planes for profit on non-firefighting uses. He said that other people other than T&G were also doing things with the forest Service military aircraft other than firefighting, and that it was unfair that those entities, other than just T&G --were not the subjects of investigations. He specifically identified two of the defendant contractors—Hawkins and Powers Aviation and Aero Union Corporation. (See Exh. 7, 10).

Furthermore, he identified specific illegal uses by Hawkins and Powers of the military aircraft, including leasing them for film production, using them in video commercials, and hauling fish in Alaska. He stated that the scheme to use the Forest Service aircraft for profit in non-firefighting purposes was organized out of Aero Unions’ offices in Chico, Calif. He also stated that the contractors had to use Reagan to get type certificate for the planes, and that Reagan was located at Aero Unions offices. I told Chisum that it did not make since that the contractors had to use Reagan for a type certificate, since if they were firefighting there was a “public use” exception to the FAA’s certificate requirements. Chisum acknowledged that the type certificate was needed to use the aircraft for purposes other than firefighting.


I related to Chisum that I believed that the Forest Service program was part of a scheme to direct surplus military aircraft to private companies for non-firefighting purposes. Chisum confirmed my conclusion. I told Chisum that I intended to file a formal complaint with the government against the Forest Service officials with whom I had recently communicated. I also told Chisum I was going after government records to expose the scandal, and, if I found documentation to vindicate him, I would pass it along.


Around this time, Tom Wood, the Conservation Aeronautics editor, referred me to Roy Reagan. He told me that Reagan was an Air Force engineer, and he gave me


5 Reagan’s phone number in Chico, California. Exh. 8,10 He stated to me that Reagan was working on a non-public project involving A-10 fighter jets to be used for the Forest Service. I found the idea that sophisticated, modern fighter jets were being considered by the Forest Service to be incredible, and this heightened my suspicion that a Forest Service military aircraft exchange program was going badly astray.


In late 1991, I contacted the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture Office of Inspector General in Washington D.C., an agency “hotline”, which has jurisdiction over the Forest Service. I revealed my knowledge of the abuses of the Forest Service’s military aircraft exchange program (as described in paragraph 14 above) and the refusal of Fuchs to deal honestly and openly with the details of the program. I specifically reported my knowledge of the improper uses of C-130’s by T&G and others in the Persian Gulf and Hawkins And Powers in Alaska, the other improper uses for movie productions and video commercials, Aero Unions Central role in the illegal scheme, and Reagan’s affiliation with Aero Union and efforts to use A-10 fighter jets in some way under a questionable Forest Service program.


Soon after filing a complaint in late 1991 against Forest Service officials and the air tanker program with t he Agriculture’s Office of Inspector General’s hotline, I began to pursue documents from the Forest Service under the Freedom of Information Act. I began this effort in early January 1992. Exh.13 The Forest Service’s response to my request was not candid or truthful. Initially, the agency falsely asserted that the aircraft belonged to the recipients and the Forest Service retained no control over them. Exh.14 I gave this letter to Jack Chisum, and he told me that he used it to show the FAA and State Dept. that T&G’s use of the aircraft in the Persian Gulf was authorized. See exh.11


6 On Feb. 6, I submitted a follow-up to my January FOIA request, demanding “black and white documents, not merely summations created as an FOIA response.” Exh. 15


In late Feb. 1992, Woody Grantham helped me as an expression of his appreciation for my providing Chisum with the Forest Service letter. He knew that I was investigating the aircraft exchange program, and he sent me by facsimile a letter on Hawkins and Powers letterhead that revealed that Hawkins and Powers was using its Forest Service C-130s for non-firefighting purposes. In the letter, Gene Powers, the president of Hawkins and Powers, thanks the representative of a company named Multitrade International, a firm not involved in firefighting, for the “care and attention” given to Hawkins & Powers’ c-130s during its lease of them. Exh.12


On Feb18, the Forest Service responded to my follow-up FOIA request. Exh.16 With this letter, the Forest Service provided me the actual Exchange Agreements between defendants T.B.M. Hemet Valley Flying Service, Hawkins & Powers, and T&G Aviation. These documents revealed an express false certification by the contractors who received the planes, made to obtain the military aircraft, that they would use the planes exclusively for firefighting purposes.


The Forest Service had still not provided me with the specific contracting data that I had requested. Frustrated with the Forest Service responses to my FOIA requests, I spelled out—in an FOIA appeal dated March 5, 1992—what I believed to be illegal.17 activities concerning the Forest Service aircraft. Exh.17 By letter dated March 24, 1992, forest service officials acknowledged my complaints.


Also in early 1992, I made contact with the Department of Agriculture Office of Inspector General’s audit division, based in Atlanta. An OIG investigator informed me that my hotline complaint in late 1991 related to what was now a full-blown audit of the Forest Service air tanker program. I was asked to cooperate and I did so,




providing all the information and documentation that I possessed concerning T&G and the Kuwait incident, Southern Air and Evergreen involvement, and Roy Reagan and the A-10 program. I relayed the information that Chisum had told me about the true nature of the program to get former military aircraft into the hands of private contractors for non-firefighting purposes, including that Aero Union was headquarters for that program, that the contractors had to use Reagan to obtain type certificates, and that Reagan was located at Aero Union’s offices. I also forwarded to the OIG’s office that all of my FOIA requests and the Forest Service responses, including the C-130 exchange agreements. I spoke frequently with John Davis or two other auditors, agents Feester and Tyler. The auditors told me that they had not seen the Exchange Agreements before I had given the documents to them, nor did they know of Reagans involvement with A-10s. See Exh.20


Prior to the issuance of the OIG audit, I was asked by the investigators to explain what I knew about Del Rio Flying Service and Roy Reagan. I explained that Roy Reagan was involved with a highly improbable program to use A-10 fighter jets for the Forest Service. I had well-founded reasons to believe that the A-10 fighter jets were to be used for other purposes. I also revealed that Roy Reagan was connected with aircraft manufacturing operations near Ft. Worth, Texas and in Chico, Ca. I was told by an OIG investigator that portions of the audit report had been intentionally leaked to a news paper. In addition, one of the auditors told me during the audit of CIA footprints everywhere. In or about Oct. 1992, OIG auditors issued a formal audit report on the Forest Services aircraft exchange program. I obtained 3 copies of the report, one from the auditors personally, one from a member of congress, and one through a freedom of Information request.


In Late 1992, I contacted, Congressman Rose’s Office because I believed that certain Forest Service Officials were involved in a cover-up of wrongdoing in the Forest




Service airtanker program. In early 1993, Congressman Rose’s office informed me that a House Subcommittee investigation was underway concerning my 1992 complaints to congressman Rose’s office. I was asked to cooperate and testify, and I agreed. exhs. 21,22.


Also in late 1992, I learned that Mr. Chisum was killed in a hit and run car accident.


28. In early 1993, I made contact with Senior Special Agent in the criminal division of the Dept. Of Agriculture OIG office in Washington D.C. His name is Kim Widup. I then began a relationship with Agent Widup that has continued to this day. I provided Agent Widup with all the information I possessed, including the leaked Hawkins & Powers correspondence, the Exchange Agreements, and the information I had received from Chisum. Exh. 23 29. In early 1993, Congressman Rose’s office putoffice put me in contact with two media sources in the Portland, Oregon area, Jeff Manning and Eric Mason. Manning worked for the Portland Business Journal. With my assistance and documentation, Mr. Manning wrote an article on the Forest Service C-130 scandal. He provided me a courtesy copy of his story with a personal note attached thanking me for my assistance and pointing out the story could not have been written otherwise. Exh.27 I was contacted by numerous other journalists before they wrote stories on the aircraft exchange program. These included Jennifer Dixon in or around November 1992, Scott Sonner in or around July 1993, Dick Clever in or around Sept-Oct 1993, Doug Frantz in or around April-June 1993, the staff for Jack Anderson in or around July 1993, and several others.




Starting in or around April 1993, I cooperated with James Long, who worked for the Oregonian newspaper in Portland. I was put in contact with Mr. Long through a mutual acquaintance – a professor Leary from the University of Alabama.

With my help, Mr. Long prepared an extensive news article on the Forest service and C-130 air tanker program and his article is included with the August 5. 1993 congressional hearing chaired by Congressman Charlie Rose.


Just prior to my testimony before Congress that occurred on Aug. 5, 1993, I gained further information from industry contacts concerning the activity of all of the recipients of air tankers under the Forest Service Exchange Program that was the subject of my complaints to the OIG and to Congressman Rose. Later in 1993, from my confidential contacts, I learned that a company named Aerial Heavy Hauling headed up by an individual named Joe Kelso was going to create a fraudulent scheme to obtain owner ship of two C-130 aircraft previously in the Forest Service air tanke5r program. The Kelso operation would be a joint venture out of Bend, Oregon associated with a company named Butler Aviation. I learned from my confidential sources that Butler Aviation was an affiliate for T.B.M., a reci8pient of former military C-130 aircraft. Exh.32. I gave this information to Special Agent Widup, senator Sasser , Congressman Rose, and reporters with whom I worked previously.


One other source for information was a confidential contact I had initiated in Mena, Arkansas, Charles Hendricks. Exh.29, Mr. Hendricks’ son was involved with C-130 aircraft that originated from Roy Reagans efforts to skim surplus military aircraft for use in non-firefighting efforts. His son had died in a C-130 aircraft accident in Angola while operating to assist a military force in that country. Congressman Kurt Weldon stated on Aug. 5, 1993 in the record on the house floor after my testimony that the CIA was behind the flight and he wanted to have hearings to determine why, Mr. Hendricks referred me to a former T&G mechanic, who stated to me that Forest Service C-130’s had 10 been operating out of Mena, Ark. On non-firefighting activities. I also learned the names of individuals personally involved with Roy Reagan and Evergreen at a time in 1989 when I first learned that Evergreen was using the same surplus military C-130s belonging to the Forest Service for non-firefighting purposes. I provided all of this information to Agent Widup, Senator Sasser, Congressman Rose, and another representative Congressman Weldon.


From my Mena, Ark. Investigation and contacts, I made the acquaintance of Gene Wheaton who, like myself, had been asked by Congressman Rose to testify concerning his knowledge of non-firefighting uses of C-130 aircraft. My contact with Gene Wheaton occurred shortly after my Aug. 5, 1993 appearance before Congressman Rose’s committee.


I had a number of confidential phone conversations with Gene Wheaton and we exchanged documentation. We both discovered the early roots of the new 1991 Forest Service air tanker program. The program was not new whatsoever, but followed a lengthy history whereby questionable operators obtained surplus military C-130s that originated in the U.S. and later were used by the Royal Australian Air Force in the late 70s and early 80s. This predated the current Forest Service exchange program by a number of years. Many of these aircraft made their way back into the U.S. and into the hands of T&G and John Ford, and they were operated for profit doing the same type of work as T&G had done in Kuwait. See para. 38


In late summer or Fall 1993, I obtained a copy of a C-130 tracking catalog which records activity of all C-130 aircraft ever manufactured. I obtained this from Mr. Wheaton, who had given it to a reporter we both knew, Eric Mason, to share with me. It reflected that T.B.M. had transferred certain of its C-130s to an affiliate, Butler Aviation. 11. To my surprise, I also discovered multiple transfers of those aircraft involved in the Forest Service program individuals within and outside of the air tanker program. This revealed repeated switching of registration of the aircraft by defendants, a scheme known in the aviation industry to hide aircraft ownership while doing improper activities. See Exh. 31 All of this to include a copy of the catalog given to me by Special Agent Kim Widup of the criminal division, Dept. of Agriculture OIG in 1993.


Through my confidential sources and investigation efforts, I learned that when Jack Chisum’s 2 C-130s returned from Kuwait, they were flown to and parked at Evergreen’s Marana Airbase. A phoney finance scheme had been put into place so that the aircraft would appear to have been repossessed by a lending institution which would appear to be an “innocent” third party. This transaction was an illegal scheme to steal U.S. property, and I reported this to the OIG investigators, Senator Sasser, and Congressman Rose. Evergreen appeared as a sales agent putting the two C-130s on the market for $5.6 million each and retained operational control over the aircraft.


Through my confidential sources and investigation efforts, I also learned of an attorney in California named John Ford, who was involved with the Australian C-130s one of which he owned(mena n*****80, for those keeping a list)In fact, one of Ford’s C-130s was seized by U.S. Customs for hauling drugs. Ford appears in documentation possessed at one point as an officer of T&G, at other places as an attorney for both T&G and Roy Reagan. I also learned that Ford put together the financing scheme for kickbacks paid Reagan by T&G.


Through my investigative efforts that began in late 1991, I learned that Roy Reagan and key principals in Aero Union had been longstanding friends going back to high school at Medford, Oregon. I also discovered that Roy Reagans A-10 fighter program was going to be masqueraded as a Forest Service air tanker program that would be based in Medford, Oregon and associated with a company I had flown a CIA mission for in 1989. 12 The C-130, P-3, and A-10 scheme was developed at Aero Union by Reagan and his friends with the help of Evergreen. In early 1993, Special Agent Kim Widup halted the A-10 fighter plane conversion program, in part with information provided by me. I testified as to the A-10 program at Congressman Rose’s hearing in 1993. Initially, Forest Service officials denied or avoided the subject; but under pointed questioning by Congressman Rose, they admitted to the A-10 fighter jet air tanker program. This revelation was solely brought about by my investigation, which I had reported to the OIG auditors in 1992, Congressman Rose in 1993 and Agent Widup in early 1993. One of my concerns was that an A-10 fighter jet had no useful purpose as a Forest Service air tanker, especially equipped so that it could be quickly converted again into a jet aircraft “tank killer”. I additionally discovered through my investigations, that A-10 aircraft contained harmful radiation because of spent uranium munitions. I also uncovered evidence to shoe that he A-10 program was secretly further along than previously admitted by government officials. I obtained documentation showing at least 100 A-10 aircraft were involved in the program and more than 40 C-130s under a phoney air tanker program mastered by Roy Reagan and others. I provided all of this information to the OIG, Senator Sasser, and Congressman Rose.


in late 1993, I used the same documentation to show that Forest Service Chief Dale Robertson testified falsely before Congress in connection with his testimony regarding the A-10 program before Congressman Rose on Aug. 5 1993.

Forest Service Chief Robertson subsequently was fired for this and other reasons, Exh.33 13 Pursuant to 28 USC ~ 1746, I certify this 29th day of June, 1995, under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States, that the foregoing is true and correct to the best of my knowledge.

Appeals court frees former Medford man

By CHRIS BRISTOL No date set for decision in military aircraft scam

" Former Medford man who was convicted of scamming surplus military aircraft from the federal government has been freed from prison early pending the outcome of his appeal.


Roy D. Reagan, an aviation broker whose ties to the CIA lent the case an air of political intrigue, had served 20 months of his 30-month sentence when a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last month ordered his immediate release.


Reagan’s attorney, appeals specialist Marcia Shein of Atlanta, described the ruling as unusual and promising.


They just flat out released him, she said Monday. The decision gives us an indication that they’re going to overturn the conviction.


Reagan and a high-ranking U.S. Forest Service official, now-retired assistant aviation director Fred Fuchs, were convicted by an federal jury in Arizona in 1997 of conspiring to steal 22 surplus Air Force C-130A transports and six Navy P-3A submarine attack planes.


The tangled tale dated back to 1989, when the Forest Service handed over the planes to five private firefighting contractors as part of a program that permitted the government to trade surplus military aircraft for historic planes that could be given to the Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio.


A former Air Force tanker pilot, Reagan once worked for two of the contractors. He also worked briefly for Central Point-based Erickson Air-Crane, which disavowed any role in the case and was never accused of any wrongdoing.



Historically, the Air Force has provided used military aircraft to the Forest Service, which uses them to fight fires. To save costs, the Forest Service contracts out air support.


The exchange program came under scrutiny in 1991 when two of the planes turned up hauling cargo in Kuwait after the Gulf War. An audit concluded the aging C-119s the government got in trade were worthless junk "

 - - --- --

Federal prosecutors argued the exchange program was more than bad horse-trading. They said Reagan resold some of the planes and made more than $1 million on the deals.


Many of the planes were scavenged for parts or sold, and the government has been trying to retrieve some of them ever since.

One of the contractors leased aircraft to a Central American airline that federal prosecutors identified as a front for drug traffickers.


But the defendants claimed they were made scapegoats over a bureaucratic misunderstanding  :lol:. None of the contractors or their business partners were prosecuted.


Reagan, 60, now makes his home in Phoenix, Ariz.


In its 2-1 decision, issued Feb. 17, the appeals panel did not explain its reason for releasing Reagan. A dissent written by Justice Susan Graber of Portland indicated the decision hinged on Reagan’s claim of heart problems.



Shein said her client is not doing well physically and she argued that it was almost unprecedented for somebody convicted of a nonviolent crime to go to prison before the appeal could be heard. Except in ole Jackson.


There’s no reason for a person with a two-year sentence to sit in jail pending the outcome of an appeal, she said.


Fuchs was released from prison in November after serving a two-year sentence and has returned to his retirement home near Albuquerque, N.M. He is also appealing.


The appeals court has not indicated when it will issue a ruling.


Lead prosecutor Claire Mann, an assistant U.S. attorney in Tucson, had no comment. She referred inquiries to the Department of Justice appellate division in Washington, D.C. "

 " where I live if you piss off a cop....they will shoot you and then say that the victim was the perpetrator. This is the third "shooting" by a cop just this year. This vile corruption is everywhere.


The first one that I actually witnessed was a guy that locked himself in a cabin, so they burned the house down...literally..with him in it.   Captain and I watched it burn and the fire dept did nothing to put it out. They only sprayed water on the two neighboring homes to keep them from catching fire, Sadly this kind of egregious behavior happens everyday. "
