GILMER COUNTY where “YOU’VE GOT TO SERVE SOMEBODY,” … to be the LEADER of CORRUPTION in the State of West Virginia!
By Free Bird – RGW Reporter for the Central WV SS/Hurricane Rina McCoy – Cosmos Communicator Editor/ Editor Edison – CalPatty Press Editor
“Myths sometimes die hard!”
The myth that West Virginia is actually part of America is a hard one to learn, but when you do learn even if it is the hard way, you know for sure. That situation goes double in Gilmer County!
This part of West Virginia is often recognized by well laid nests of crime clubs where bribery, extortion, nepotism and sleaze are ways of life. Local governments in West Virginia are today more often than not corrupt as all get out, but specifically Gilmer County – and we have well documented proof of corruption!
“That’s just the way we always do it in Gilmer County”
“What is the purpose of electing officials to run local government … of choosing leaders?”
If you have ever given this question some thought, the chances are you figured that they exist to serve us, but in Gilmer County an elite group has formed to serve themselves — and like minded affluent and are known locally as the Gilmer County Power Elite, or even better known as the Crooks from Crooked County that live down by the Crooked River!
Serving the public is why we call those officials “Public Servants.”
It’s because they serve the people, right?
Not in Gilmer County, West Virginia, otherwise known as Morris town USA with some freaked out, drugged up, egotistical, backwards as fuck, arrogant, dumb ass power elite pieces of shit, calling themselves, Public Servants!
But mostly many of them have been pubic hair servants for all the sex scandals in Gilmer County that have become famous over the years!
Glenville, the county seat of Gilmer County is now known for drugs and illicit, unethical, immoral debauchery that has made it to the pages of the Gilmer Free Press and these accounts are personal accounts of people that were there and/or Police reports!
In most places in America individuals clearly work for government because they are altruists, wanting to do what is best for everybody, regardless of their own self interest, of course, ….but this isn’t America, this is West Virginia!
And more specifically CROOKED COUNTY where they murdered FRED HILL!!
If you aren’t from the CHURCH OF IKE you are nowhere baby!
Whistle-blowers can be framed for crimes they did not commit, or even come to experience foul play. Dissidents are carefully watched by the police, and may wind up in hot water for mere expressions of opinion. However, anything can go on at the home of IKE MORRIS (shown above) …all you got to do is SERVE SOMEBODY!
Governments are basically businesses where large sums of money pass through every day, where licenses and permits are sought, where unwarranted criminal prosecutions often originate and where suspicious contracts and purchases are awarded.
“The temptation to steal in Gilmer County, to promote graft or to build corrupt little empires is pandemic!”
Those who seek political position in both county and city government often do so for the basest of motives.
Others, like those in Gilmer County have become enchanted with the concept of power, and become corrupted by its taste. Organized criminal networks flourish in the environment of local government, and often the line between criminal, government employee or official is blurred.
“With the recent outcry for help involving the misconduct in the Gilmer County Sheriffs office and Deputy Jones using a Taser weapon on a citizen, we wonder how many members of law enforcement have a criminal history or other blemishes on their record.”
Are they accepting bribes from the owner of a local towing company like we have been a hearing?
An inquiry into this might include officials of both city and county government and there will be no answers forthcoming.
“It really is not what you know but who you know in order to do business in Gilmer County West Virginia!”
Speaking of SCANDAL and sexual misconduct involving the Gilmer County Sheriffs office and even the daughter of the head law man here in the town of Glenville, the latest involves drunken fun at the Gilmer County High School Volley Ball tournament.
It has been reported that Kim Morris, Sandy Pettit, and Bev Metz were all drunk on the trip to the State Volley Ball event. They took some kids on the pep bus and a group led by Gerry Hough’s daughter CARLY mixed vodka with Gatorade and ended up getting too drunk and passing out! Now, there is even more of a scandal to tell! Hell! Some party goers said they did not know where they were and finally found some people in the group passed out too! And then they fa fa fucked, cuz that’s what real drunk people do!
The boy friend of Crystal Metz was so drunk and fucked up on drugs, that nobody cared when he ventured off, and then what he was trying to do to the girls by pulling their pants and panties down and then trying to play with their precious feminine secret places!
Another one of Gerry Hough’s daughters, Lauren Hough, Carly’s Lil Sis was named as a chief player in all of the sexual exchanges and drunk shit and such.
The boyfriend of Crystal Metz was going room to room and in hallways trying to get the girls naked and play box banging bingo the Butcher Bitches way!
“In one incident dude hid in the bathtub in the ladies facilities and when the girls went to use the bathroom then he jumped out swinging his penis to and fro just like they do down in Crooked County down by the Crooked River!”
To sum up the sexual holiday the Crooked County way, sponsored by GCHS — Mickey, Beverly and Crystal Metz, Sandy Pettit, Ike’s Executive secretary, and another member of the Church of IKE who is the mother of the girl who got raped by a black man and then pregnant by a black man and then got an abortion. Also the boyfriend of Crystal Metz Jeremy “Wagging his Wiener,” Wagner were the adults in charge of the totally out of control high school event.
We hear of policemen extorting sex from the relatives of a wanted criminal. Is all the cash collected going on the books or in pockets? That action has already been documented in the county tax collections.
It is well known that improper favors are always handed out to suspects. Drug offenses, parking tickets, drunk driving cases and the like are simply ignored for people with the right clout.
This, however, is amateur stuff. The real professional racketeers have a deeper stranglehold on the entire apparatus of local government. The power held by politicians and their lackeys often includes control over licenses and permits for everything from pinball machines, tattoo and massage parlors, to liquor licenses and building permits. The power to say no is also the power to say yes. This power is a commodity that can be sold, traded or bought. What’s the going price these days Gilmer County?
The power to award building contracts, public works contracts, the right to collect overdue parking tickets or taxes, and the power to hire employees all can bring money to a crooked bureaucrat.
There is no end to it in Gilmer County where the same stuff goes on and never stops. The worst part of human nature prevails when political power is placed in the wrong hands as Gilmer County citizens hard work goes to promote the gangster life on a country level and see that these thieves become the new bourgeoisie while the average guy struggles to pay his taxes and keep his house, never mind feed the family.
Are you tired of it yet?
What can be done?
A thinking mind is never helpless. Making politicians fearful of the citizenry, instead of contemptuous, is necessary..
“Citizens who are vigilant and involved rather than apathetic can be a strong antidote to politics as usual!”
Informed citizens who carefully watch their local Gilmer County government are the front line of defense for the integrity of the community.
Without breaking the law, local activists need to select the issues that matter most and launch a campaign to embarrass and humiliate the people most responsible. Personal attacks often work. If somebody is guilty of nepotism, identify him. If there is blatant corruption, name them, but be sure the evidence is solid and documented.
“These small town crooks and bullies need lessons in humility.
Let’s give it to them!”
Maybe it’s time that that those, “BULLSHIT” fake as fuck public servants in Gilmer County, West Virginia learned to serve somebody!
The TRUST IS GONE on 11-11-11 It is DEMOCRACY IN NAME ONLY in GLENVILLE – Home to GSC! Let the Perverts Reign!
By Free Bird – RGW Reporter for the Central WV Secret Seven Coalition/Hurricane Rina McCoy – Cosmos Communicator Editor/ Editor Edison – CalPatty Press Editor
“Democracy depends on the free flow of information and ideas!”
Opinions must be shared in ”A free and open encounter” because it is the competition between ideas that produces the truth and allows its concepts to be shared. Difference of opinion stimulates debate and the thought process, out of this comes truth.
The best policy decisions result from robust and uninhibited debate. For this reason, politicians have a privilege denied to the rest of us, aside from fat pensions and health insurance. They cannot be prosecuted for what they say, including hate speech. Why should we accept free political speech for politicians but not for ourselves? We elected them, why are we any less entitled?
“Gilmer County is dealing with a relatively authoritarian government operating as a democracy in name only”
… a member of the Secret Seven Coalition recently stated.
The current leadership in Gilmer County, West Virginia home to Glenville State College is certainly subversive on their best day with implied threats and cheap shots, yet obviously overt in their crass attitude of superiority and control over the less fortunate through use of the power of their elected office or bank account.
There is no level to which the POWER ELITE leaders will not sink to enforce government censorship and maintain control of the elections, business, the schools and our tax dollars.
“Those dumb bitches of the POWER ELITE are only satisfied with total submission to the entitlement of their authority!”
This is a very backwards way of thinking!
It shows an obvious lack of thought, lack of ethics and lack of respect for their fellow man.
Why would people of influence sink so low as to pay an agency located outside of the USA to attempt an attack on one of our local businesses such as the Gilmer Free Press?
Why do the Elite of Glenville seek to invade the privacy of the citizenry though they fail miserably over and over. The answer is because the self absorbed so called leaders of the county government fear a group of organized, knowledgeable citizens, communicating via the internet, initiating what (in their dumb ass minds) amounts to disobedience to the wishes of the ruling powers while attempting to remain anonymous while doing so.
“The Power Elite of Glenville fear the term anonymous most of all!”
They fear the words of intelligent people in an environment where the actual identities are not known, where their threats fall on deaf ears and no one hushes and lets everything just be OK like every good old boy should.
They fear a domain where sharing information is encouraged as it can lead to the creation of a truly informed electorate. To put it simply….
“The POWER ELITE fear for the the safety of their pocket books!”
Enough is enough, let’s see to it they have reason to and walk in fear no more.
Casey Smith, a local teacher in Gilmer County teacher has been arrested surrounding allegations that he gave alcohol to a minor and major penis to a minor too, from what we hear. Casey is also known as Nasia Butchers personal lap dog. Smith is a teacher at Gilmer High School and spends most of his time with Nasia in her office and walking her to her car carrying her pocket book and even gives her a little pat on the ass as he is putting her in her car.
Did Casey learn all those good manners from his HOTTY mother, who by the way is a real good roll in the hay if I remember from the day.
The Criminal complaint says that Casey Smith (Nasia Lap Dog and Cock sucking personal pet of the all great and wonderful wife to elite leader R Terry Butcher of the Bitcher and Butcher law firm) provided one of his queer boy buddies who is also a student in the high school he teaches at, with about a quarter of a cup of an alcoholic beverage, while they were staying at a hotel in Parkersburg.
It was quite the honeymoon for the young couple down in Wood County, but younger of the two is being referred to as a victim, and he says he drank an additional cup of that beverage, after Smith fell asleep. In a statement to police Smith apparently claimed that he did not provide any such beverage to the victim, but that it’s possible that he might have given it to him because of the sleeping pills he takes. It was just another case of HOMO takes BROMO and wakes up feeling one of the high school boys from Gilmer County High School. But, when you are a pet to a member of the elite you can get away with just about anything, and he will.
Citizens in Gilmer County however, are outraged, and have made numerous comments on the GILMER FREE PRESS and the GFP was taking thousands of hits in an hour and once again was the top rated website in the state of WV last week for daily hits. Comments made on the GFP can be found in the comment section of the article just below this one in your latest edition of Revenge of the Ghost Wolf.
A sexual predator is often used to refer to a person who habitually seeks out sexual situations that are deemed exploitative. Alcohol and drugs are often used as an introduction and a means to a desired end.
This time evil ran right down that Crooked County panty line!
“The definition of 1st degree sexual assault is forced penetration, causing
serious bodily injury, or use of a deadly weapon, but then I guess a big black hard dick could be considered a weapon and the preferred weapon used by students at the HOME of Rape and Murder in CROOKED COUNTY – Glenville State College!”
Gabriel Phrophet (Gabe Phrophet), 22, was arraigned by Gilmer County Magistrate Robert Minigh on Tuesday, June 21, 2011 and is facing two felonies charges involving sexual assaults of 1st and 2nd degree.
“Phrophet is just one of many football players for GSC to be accused of rape, but there have been no convictions!”
Phrophet was booked at Central regional Jail June 23, five months ago, but there has been no preliminary hearing scheduled and Gerald B Hough is purposely not moving this case forward to protect the image of the college at the cost of the public’s safety!

If your looking to rape a hot white chick at a local college you never have to look further than Glenville State College high on the hill overlooking Crooked County down by that Crooked River!
The victim who had the holy bejesus fucked out of her alleges that she was raped, and then sought treatment at Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital after the pounding by the QB of the GSC Football team from Washington DC. The criminal complaint stated that the victim “Feared for her life,” during the entire terrifying sexual attack!!
Sexual abuse is the product of sick people in a sick society. It robs children of their childhood and creates a loss of trust, feelings of guilt and self-abusive behavior. It can lead to antisocial behavior, depression, identity confusion, loss of self-esteem and other serious emotional problems. It can also lead to difficulty with intimate relationships later in life.
The very idea that adults might be sexually attracted to children is so offensive that most parents prefer not to think about it but they should. By conservative estimates, one out of 10 children is sexually abused each year, often by a trusted authority figure — a teacher, camp counselor, priest or relative — or by the parents themselves.
Sexual child abuse cuts across all social, economic and racial strata of our society. In every respect, children are particularly vulnerable victims.
They can be easily persuaded to cooperate with molesters as they really don’t know what is going on, they trust the perpetrator. Later, they may be too afraid or ashamed to talk about it with their parents. They don’t know if they’ll believe them over an adult. Only the lucky ones tell a true friend who knows the right thing to do which is, tell someone, tell anyone, but tell.
Sadly enough, though, up to two-thirds of all child molestation cases never come to light,
Only 10 percent of the child sexual abusers report that they molest a child who is a stranger.
They molest children close to them, mainly children in their family or children in their social circle.
Most child molesters, 90 percent, report that they know their child victims very well.
Parents are also in shock about what to believe an adult is capable of. They may feel they have failed because they knew the perpetrator, they “trusted” them. They said they didn’t do anything. Then the thought, what will the neighbors and my friends say? Will they blame me for letting this happen? Maybe it’s just best to let it go, kids forget in time… Know this, kids never forget.
Any logical person would agree that if you break a rule or a law, you have to be held accountable for the wrong-doing. If you break a law, you suffer the consequences and questionable actions should be questioned. In that process, trust is broken in Gilmer County. Right now, there are teachers and other community leaders who are breaking laws and rules of common decency totally visible to all. Right out in the open, they laugh about sexual misconduct, illegal drinking and drug use by teenagers.
They deny drug and alcohol use in our elementary and high schools although statistics show we would have one of the only systems in the nation where that was true.
These people will tell you it’s certainly an acceptable part of college life and if the little kids pick up on it, oh well, they’re just getting ready. Heaven knows they will blame a child for telling on one of their friends and disrupting their social life.
“They seem to think it is just OK!”
Some believe it is so very OK they will even try to suppress public awareness.
“The Trust in the local county government in Gilmer County is GONE”
Well, we have had two women in locally in Gilmer County who were accused of using an electrically charged tool to discipline the children, Emerson caught on Main Street fondling a small boy, and then there is Nasia Butcher’s apparent penchant for teachers who tend to be perceived as living or desiring an alternate sexual lifestyle with their actions tending toward the pedophilic with drug and alcohol problems.
There is so much child abuse and domestic violence in our community that the Crooked County Courts can’t keep up with it and some police and court officials think that sex with young girls is an acceptable way of life.
While you’re are at it, add in the no prosecution of rape, breaking and entering and drug abuse if your parents contribute to GSC or if you play sports and a definite good old boy attitude toward what the sentence should be for murder, what the legal methods of the election process and taxation of the citizenry are and how to implement and enforce them, or any other question involving morals, ethics and honesty in this County. Houston, we have a problem.
“When trust fails chaos follows!”
The very core of civilization relies on faith in others. Where trust exists, we walk out of our homes, go to the store and let the kids play outside, knowing that we are safe, knowing that danger is unlikely. Where trust is destroyed, we stay indoors, the government seethes with corruption, and danger is the norm.
“Life without trust is a fearful existence!”
We need trust in order to know that we can live as an ordered society. Sadly, the sacred trust placed in our community leaders is dead. It has become so obvious by the downfall and destruction at all levels of our educational system, back room control of the business environment and inaction of law enforcement, that the citizens of Gilmer County can no longer trust the people they have relied upon over the years to act for anything but their own short-term interests.
No economic growth, no safety, no community empowerment serves as its own self fulfilling prophecy. The most tragic loss is the ability to entrust the Gilmer County Elite with the care of the children. Another major consequence is the destruction of the ethical and moral treatment of many community members through political coercion and greed.
Any leader who condones cheating at any level deserves quick disciplinary action. No beating around the bush: there is flat out no way to justify cheating, never was before and never now. In the absence of any logical reasoning or moral justification it encourages poor work ethics and “I don’t care” attitudes developed by people of low moral values trying to wriggle their way out of guilt and consequences for inappropriate actions with the express purpose of personal and/or financial gain.
Those in charge today continue to insist they are not at fault when it comes down to their own dirty work. They have done what they were told and have no responsibility if it hasn’t worked out. Some have the nerve to blame it on lack of money completely ignoring the fact that you can’t buy consideration for their fellow man and honest efforts to improve their condition. (Yet they always have enough for a paycheck.)
In an ideal world we wouldn’t have to worry about them. A dedicated, right thinking majority would have oversight and authority to make corrections.
But “times have been a changing”, and with academic, social and economic pressures on the rise, the number of people who are more than willing to cheat to transform themselves from underachievers to overachievers, desperate to push their “grade” over the next letter is increasing by the day. Ask them, they’ll tell you out loud that they will do anything for a vote.
“What is whispered is the Power Elite in Glenville will also do anything for a dollar!”
In fact the whole fabric of local education and government must be based on trust. No one can learn, teach or govern for the betterment of the community and not the few, where the network of trust is not iron-clad.
If trust is missing, when thievery, lying and greed are just OK, what you have is a dying system. What we have is a slowly decaying county and the only thing the people in charge can say is “NO CPR” but save me a job.
All children need teachers who are trustworthy, who can help parents prepare them to be fully functioning and contributing members of society. All citizens deserve strong defenders of our laws and Constitution. These needs will not be met by choosing a leadership willing to continuously break the law as a personal favor to constituents and supporters thereby breaking that sacred trust we have given to them.
“This Gilmer County totalitarian society controlled by the few over the many needs to end!”
The citizens of Gilmer County have obviously become very been upset by the episode with Casey Smith the Gilmer High School teacher caught in a Wood County motel room taking drugs and giving alcohol to a student. They don’t call it Wood County for nothing!
The obvious NEWS BLACK OUT that included the local print press media source the very disappointing Glenville Democrat has been more than disconcerting to most of the locals, but then this attitude and situation of a controlled press that includes black outs and censorship just reaffirms the public’s confidence in the Gilmer Free Press and the ever so faithful Secret Seven Coalition websites that seldom pull punches and always tell the truth no matter how horrid or how awful the details. We have had our own PENN STATE debacle several times in Glenville, and one of them involved that raucous party up Hwy 33 at the home of Shelly Morris DeMarino where a Lady Titan was involved in actual coitus with the basketball coach according to witnesses, and one other team member was raped by a black GCHS Football player and later became pregnant.
I talked to a person today that was helping reach out to the right lawyers for our cause and it was suggested that we tell our own story to MSNBC !! I say we need to have our representative pitch the Glenville Hell story to a national news service!
“Heck Penn State ain’t nothing compared to the awful sexual misconduct that goes on down in Crooked County where those Crooked County Crooks live down by that Crooked River!”
It’s time we banned together! So tell all of your friends that we must break on through to the other side of EVIL and LIVE !!
“It is Better to RULE in the HELL FIRES of CROOKED COUNTY than serve in Heaven.” GILMER COUNTY will NEVER BE FREE nor will there be LIBERTY FOR ALL until we SEND HOME the “Good Old Boys!”
By Free Bird -RGW reporter for the Central WV SS/Hurricane Rina McCoy-Cosmos Communicator Editor for Cosmic Communications Inc/Editor Edison – CalPatty Press Editor for the Council of Conservative Citizens of Central WV
“All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent”
— Thomas Jefferson
We need to let people know that America and GILMER COUNTY will never be free, or united by a country of the people, by the people, and for the people until we get rid of the system of payment for election and stop selling our government for greed and petty favors. From local government to federal agencies,
“GILMER COUNTY will never be free until we send the “Good Old Boys” home!”
“Good old boy”politics long ago destroyed the trust most of us have in our policy makers!
Many are living testimony to its effectiveness. Do you want a job, want your kid’s arrest not to appear in the local paper, need a favor with the judge about that DUI, got a problem recording that lien or need help handling Dad’s will? Take the easy way out, go with the flow and keep your mouth shut, it will all be just OK.
After decades of communism and a ban on personal wealth creation, China and Russia today worship at the temple of capitalism, much like the Church of Ike worshipers at Waco Oil and ASS would hope to do thru their false leadership and hidden guidance by elite entities.
Ever since elitism was born along with the Church of Ike, the organized elite have generated riches for a few at the expense of poverty and misery for the majority of the Gilmer County citizens. Growth of elite forces and political careers have been at the expense of retrogression of social relations among the general populace.
Reformative piecemeal repairs such as “Transparency, regulation and oversight,” are as futile and are as wasting of time an effort as patching up a piece of hollowed-out rotten wood, the borer insect of the “Common Place Elite of Gilmer County,” destroyed, and then consumed!
Gilmer County as a result and with the additional help of a manipulated and controlled GCEDA and the special college programs has fallen to the Church of Ike!
The elite in control of GSC business projects needs to curb some of the entrepreneurial zeal that directly competes with long established local family businesses. GSC has implemented some new procedures, rules and protocols along with new regulations that frankly have somewhat of a communist character, just to appease those who drink the kool aid of the Poison Mind Church of Ike followers who run GSC!
Glenville and Gilmer County , along with the common citizens might as well be Inca’s from Peru for all the consideration they get from these special programs. The rich just get richer and poor just keep getting poorer in Crooked County down by the Crooked River.
The Glenville Democrat has a brand new news director as reported in previous Ghost Wolf articles, and she happens to be the latest babe of Bob Henry Baber, and she keeps Bob Bob Bobbing along with publishing great propaganda for the elite and GSC! No real news coming out of the print press in Gilmer County.
In the words of one citizen of Gilmer County … the concerned citizens are reaching out to the Gilmer Free Press because the FREE PRESS will listen and publishes unedited comments and opinions. It is this vehicle that spreads the news on the horrors Gilmer County is going thru and has had to face.
“A person has to understand, if a minion or member of the Power Elite commit a crime, as we have just seen with Deputy Jones, those in the exclusive group cover for each other and the crime seems to magically DISAPPEAR!”
We have seen this time and time again, and year after year in Gilmer County and this covering for each other includes, murders, out right killing in the woods, and rape.
Presto, now you see it, now you don’t, no mo sexual assault charges for another negro football player at GSC and then another member of the team is arrested for the same thing again, and again, just like Gabe Phrophet last summer!
“But, if you or I commit a crime just wait and see what will happen!”
You will be suited up in orange at CRJ so fast your underwear will fly off and you will be sent to the showers if it were you or I, and then sprayed with some noxious chemicals before getting your bed roll, and if you are lucky like the leader of our local SS, you will have Judge Facemire calling down to the jail making your now bad life a living hell, and that crooked judge may have you thrown in the hole to serve in solitary on the false charges he put you in there on.
Not every person gets away with crimes in the crooked county of Gilmer. Just depends on who you are, who you know, who you blow, and what you have, or what you can give!
“Somebody must be blowing somebody pretty good, because look what happened with our entire Gilmer County School system – It was taken over by the State of WV!”
The WV State BOE took over after a few phone calls from the elite, once the loss of political control looked imminent by the action of the change of power by the act of electing William K Simmons as new Superintendent chosen by the people of Gilmer County.
But, in Gilmer County the people do not rule like in the rest of America! Only the elite call shots, so the election to the position of School Board Superintendent was just over turned by a US Senators wife and someone deep in the pockets of the leader of the local Church of IKE! Elections don’t mean a damn thing in Morris town. If the person elected is not going to play ball or politics or be a friend to the man that owns Waco Oil and Ass Ike Morris, well then, they will be forcibly removed as we witnessed for ourselves in Gilmer County.
The real problem that should have been the first to correct was getting the GCHS Principal Nasia Butcher removed from her duties and if the person chosen by the people as superintendent were allowed to remain, Nasia would simply be a page in the history of a lawless society run by elite criminals loyal to the Church of the Poison Mind.
Eliminating the cronyism, nepotism and the capitalism of connections which controls our local government should be priority Number One and it is the elephant in the corner!
It is the issue that doesn’t get much press in Gilmer County because mentioning it is about as comfortable as talking about a recently acquired sexually transmittable disease. It’s not something you want to speak of too loudly in public if you want to establish a firm reputation. But this disease needs serious attention because we are all carrying it around without thinking about its deadliness to our communities. We need to start realizing what these policies have cost Gilmer County over the years and what needs to be done to stop the insanity.
Local politicians, including judges and law officials, are focused on the upcoming election. Those elite angle to build both political and cash capital while using the college (in agreement with its leaders), the power of their office, their influence (real or imagined) with local well to dos and may even consider personal attacks without shame if it serves their purpose. Other negative effects of this good ole’ boy network are its exclusion of others, leaders of the community limiting business transactions to other elites, or to friends or acquaintances from within the network, giving friends better deals, and generally reinforcing traditional power structures over any other faction within the county.
“Those in power in Glenville, WV right this minute want to keep the sordid facts of life in Gilmer County quiet!”
You are not to speak of rapes, robberies, drug dealing, and malfeasance in office or even ask what they are doing with your tax dollars!
They want you to just keep still and don’t rock the boat or you will pay. They will tell you that but very little else. This back room form of blackmail has been going on so long many of those involved don’t even think about the part of their soul that was sold to get what they thought they needed. It is just plain easier to forget that and go on. It’s all JUST OK!
News flash, it is not easier, it is not OK. Failing businesses, increasing crime with no prosecution and total apathy to the condition of our schools and needs of fixed income citizens have all been part of the price to be paid. Other examples include the unbalanced assessment of property values, no collection of long term business tax liabilities, hiring more personnel and raising salaries while the population served decreases, (to pay back political favors), an obvious lack of concern for the safety of all citizens, no growth and no respect for the laws of the land.
What is the ultimate price for trusting those under the control of the power elite? Who can say? The amount the corrupt will say is enough, “You’ve paid your debt … has yet to be determined. So the long term cost of the damage done to a once proud county and its citizens, is still undetermined, but it doesn’t look good.
This has happened little by little, like termites eating away at the foundation of your home, until you are forced to make repairs because the floor caved in. Our floor is about to rot Gilmer County. Are we willing to look at this elephant, this socially transmitted disease via apathy, and decide it is time to do something about it?
“It’s the collusion of small town government, back room business and finance to the detriment of all the rest – to the little guys. There must be willingness to take on the “Same good old boy politics-as-usual”, to take on a corrupt and compromised political class and their cheap, hoodlum type dealings. We have to get rid of the roaches before the roaches get rid of us. Will somebody please call the exterminator?”
We need to get rid of some dirty bugs, but don’t kill the dragonflies!
We might need a dragon fly or two for transportation, for now that we the people of the Secret Seven Coalition, the ones that bring you the real truth, have let you in on what is really up …lets not spend anymore time today on bad things, for it’s time to float your mind around a little! Lets go where the clouds are really low and at just the right time of day they look like Cotton Candy.
It’s very far away
It takes about a half and a day to get there
If we travel by my uh, dragon-fly!
