GLENVILLE the County Seat of GILMER COUNTY is a TOTALITARIAN UTOPIA!!

Lets not leave out the dishonest Gerald B Hough-the Crooked County Prosecutor, and several other public officials, including the former county clerk, Lame Smith!
There has been some positive proof of wrongdoing uncovered and if not for investigations from outside the area, it would have all been neatly swept under the rug, never to been seen or heard of again. The Crooks from Crooked County have literally gotten away with murder before. They are more than confident, they will be able to do it again. The Powers that Be will get maximum assistance from the local newspapers and TV Stations and the Radio stations will run with what is being released by the Associated Press, which will be slanted in favor of the agenda of, “It was all a terrible accident!” The TV stations are already reporting Fred Hill went out the back exit of the Trezan’s bar for an “UNKNOWN REASON” which we all know is a complete lie.
Basil Fred Hill was ordered out the back door of Trezan’s by Jeremy Davis-the bouncer that night and the son of the former Police Chief of Glenville, and FRED was not given a choice! Since Fred has now been discovered DEAD- Davis should be immediately arrested, but he won’t even be questioned, he is protected, and obviously allowed to be an accessory to MURDER! Chief Davis passed away not long after Fred disappeared from the back of Trezan’s

G-LtE™: THE TALE OF LYIN’ BS GILMER COUNTY’S BURDEN

The Big Question: Why is someone who is very willing to throw Students, Teachers, Parents, BOE staff, BOE members and even local philanthropists under the bus to protect and glorify himself allowed to continue in a leadership position? Why support this farce?
Recommendation: No vote for Lying BS. Show some real support for the capable and honest members of our Board of Education. Send the message it’s time to go BS.

Revenge of the Ghost Wolf

The Free Press WVThe original sin: 2011 I am qualified to speak for and support this groups goals.  I will see to it that the Governor does a Blue Ribbon Study of Gilmer County education successes and work with you to stop this consolidation to one school causing the destruction of FOUR communities in Gilmer County. The children won’t be forced to travel.

Result: Change of plans. “I was never against consolidation! I can’t be part of this.  I’ve been elected and put in as President of the board.”  I’ll destroy you.
Local BOE President swears: I have local political influence and will see to it that intervention ends within the first year.  I will be Superintendent and promise to fire the High School Head Administrator.

Result:  Ron Blankenship stays three years and Gabe Devono is appointed by the state as Superintendent of Gilmer County Schools July 1, 2014. The President turns…

F JOHN OSHOWAY FOUND To Be a SON Of A BITCH and Dishonest As HELL According to an Article in the West Virginia Record

Ethics panel gives warning to Calhoun attorney

Gilmer County Courthouse

Gilmer County Courthouse

CHARLESTON – Along with a mild rebuke, a Calhoun County attorney has been ordered to compensate a New York woman who alleged he misrepresented her interests in a dispute over her late father’s estate in neighboring Gilmer County.

The investigative panel of the Lawyer Disciplinary Board on July 7 closed Marlea Cottrill’s ethics complaint against F. John Oshoway. Though the panel determined he committed no violations of the Rules of Professional Conduct, Charles J. Kaiser, Jr., the panel’s chairman, said Oshoway was wrong to charge Cottrill for work he performed after she dismissed him.

Along with an order to repay Cottrill $262.50 within the next 60 days, the panel instructed Oshoway, 61 and a sole practitioner in Granstville, to “take steps to improve his office polices and procedures,” with a warning that “any similar conduct in the future will result in sanction.”

In her complaint filed April 12, 2012, Cottrill, 52 and a Jordan, N.Y., resident, alleged after hiring him “in a panic,” Oshoway did little, if any work, to represent her interests in a suit to quiet title her brother-in-law, Michael Murphy as executor to the estate of her father, Willard, filed in Gilmer Circuit Court against Ruth Mitchell, Willard’s live-in companion.

Since he did not properly create a life estate for Mitchell in his will, the suit sought to have her evicted from the home she shared with Willard prior to his death on Oct. 20, 2010.

Despite not living on the property in Linn, and an heir to the estate, the suit named Cottrill as a co-defendant.

From the time she hired him in August 2011 until she discharged him seven months later, Cottrill said Oshoway failed to communicate with her about not only the status of the suit but also its implications. In her complaint, Cottrill went so far as to accuse Oshoway of engaging in “legal tomfoolery” for the lack of work he did after paying him a retainer of $2,000.

Cottrill said she kept abreast of the case via Mitchell, who forwarded her pleadings filed in case she received from her attorney, Dan Grindo.

Last August, Judge Jack Alsop granted summary judgment in favor of Mitchell, finding that Willard Cottrill’s last will and testament was clear enough that she was allowed to remain on the property as long as she desired.

The GILMER FREE PRESS – The Only TRUE VOICE of the CITIZENS of Gilmer County, West Virginia!

CommunityConcerns™: Gilmer County High School’s 2013 Third Tier OEPA Rating

The Gilmer Free PressWest Virginia’s Office of Education Performance Audits (OEPA) published its 2013 Report of School Ratings (www.oepa.wv.us) including those for Gilmer County’s five public schools.

The ratings in a decreasing order of desirability are:

•  EA=Exemplary Accreditation

•  DA=Distinction Accreditation

•  FA=Full Accreditation

Among our schools the Normantown Grade School received the highest rating with a DA.

The other four schools including the high school received a third tier FA rating.

The high school’s diminished rating is alarming.

In any other WV County there would have been bold print newspaper headlines to address the suboptimum performance to cause citizens to demand corrective actions, but the news was not printed.  Why?

Citizens deserve to know specific causes for the high school’s third tier rating.

Why was monitoring not done by the State to prevent the third tier rating, and most importantly what are the specific actions planned to elevate the rating to the EA category?

Governor Tomblin,  Dr. Linger, Dr. Phares,  Dr. Gus Penix, and Delegates Boggs and Walker,  all of you were informed of our high school’s problems so what will it require to receive your corrective involvement?

Our School Board is powerless to act with its authority stripped by the State to emphasize the utmost necessity for your help.

This community concern deserves top priority attention in Gilmer County.

Gilmer County Economic Development (GCEDA), Glenville State College (GSC), those who caused the takeover (CUBIES), Gilmer Schools Coalition (G.S.C.), parents, teachers, and all other interested citizens, we have an urgent and immediate need to unite to achieve performance improvements at our high school.

Please attend future Board meetings to show community support for changes.

High praise is extended to Normantown Grade School’s students, principal Chambers, and its admirable teachers and staff for earning a DA rating.

With consolidated grade schools pending, proactive initiatives must occur to ensure that they are EA performers.

Because the Gilmer High School will not be replaced by consolidation, the community must demand whatever may be required, including a change of administration if necessary, to elevate its rating to an EA level. Anything lower than top performance will be unacceptable to prevent our high school students from continuing to be victimized.

Kudos to the GFP and Mr. Dave Ramezan for providing this important information to Gilmer County’s citizens.

Does anyone find it troubling that we have a State college with a highly touted teacher education program, but the institution has not played a positive role in establishing a top rated high school in the County? Isn’t it doubly troubling that Gilmer County is the only intervention County in the State with a State College with a teacher education program? Dr. Barr and Board of Governors how do you explain GSC’s failure to contribute to the quality of our County’s school system? If anyone up there, particularly Dr. Peter Barr, wants to be viewed as part of the solution instead of part of the problem how about coming to Board meetings to verify a commitment to be a partner in the challenging task of establishing a top quality K-12 school system in the County?

Comment by Hes Jackson  on  04.08.2013

Who do the county’s without a college blame it on?  I find it more troubling that the State of Education is not taking responsibility for their failing policies and lack of adequate oversight.  It is even more troubling to note that in January 2011 Sand Fork elementary was listed DA and is now FA.  No on site visit documented since 2011 so the decline must be due to testing?

Comment by Very Troubled  on  04.08.2013

Don’t expect to see involvement from GCEDA, CUBIES, or GSC reps. The majority of citizens familiar with the history of the State’s take over of our schools believe that what needs to be done is to replace the high school’s administration. People associated with the groups listed above are believed to have demanded the State’s takeover and installation of Ron Blankenship mainly to protect the principal. If anyone has courage to speak out on behalf of what most citizens think needs to be done it most likely will be Mrs. Hurley after she polls the Coalition’s membership. If nothing is done to get the high school straightened out quickly we can expect more of the same for years to come. Translation—no changes possible until the present principal decides to retire.  How many think that Terry and Tim Butcher would permit Dr. Peter Barr to get the College involved if the immediate need is administrative changes at the high school? Conflicts of interest as usual in Gil?

Comment by P. J. Moss  on  04.08.2013

If the problems with the educational system are to be rectified, its a lengthy list of behavioral modifications, and leadership/administrative replacements, and school staff coming together and speaking in unison, that will have to happen first.
The problems are known, they simply need to be forced to the surface by those intimately involved on a day to day basis, with the issues.
It is also obvious to anyone watching that the State BOE needs to butt out of the local school issues.  Our schools are now deteriorating under their lack of leadership and poor administration procedures.  The State BOE is causing far more problems than there are solving.

Comment by time for Tomblin to intervene  on  04.08.2013

shock P.J. Moss you’re more right than most know.  GSC isn’t coming and since they handle GCEDA they won’t be charging to our rescue either.  Betsy Barr ran to Charleston with the CUBIES along with some employees from our local board office because they feared history might repeat itself.  Didn’t really have much to worry about from what we see and hear on those videos did they?

Comment by S Amos  on  04.08.2013

Consolidation of schools has never improved them.  At one time, Troy was a Blue Ribbon school. With all the controversy on the new school, is it any wonder the achievement has dropped there?  Parents need to realize that their children are being robbed of a decent education by a state bureaucracy that is trying to survive – all the money paid to bureaucrats and state board members should be paying for teachers and instructional materials for students. Doing what has never worked, over and over, is a sign of stagnation, not progress.

Comment by Karen Pennebaker  on  04.08.2013

We are hearing/reading lots of comments about the schools.  I only see two names of people standing up and standing out for our children.
Thank you Phyllis Starkey and Norma Hurley.
To everyone else:  Cat got your tongue?

Comment by we see, we know, we remember  on  04.08.2013

P.J.M. – – –  The problems that are pulling Gilmer County schools down, are of a far greater magnitude than anyone has hereto for stated.  It is systemic breakdown of the education control system in Charleston, right on down to system of management oft referred to as “micromanagement” in Gilmer County.  It is all about those who are in control, having nary a dang clue as to what they are about.  It is just a matter of those few feeding their own bloated, all consuming egos.
This fruit has been growing now for 25 years in this community, the fruit has past its ripeness and now is finally rotting.  That is what everyone is finally beginning to smell.  Lots more fruit to rot.
And the children suffer because of it all.  The system has created its own victims.

Comment by – – get used to it  on  04.08.2013

Definition of ~insanity~: Repeating the same action over and over again and expecting a different outcome.
This exactly fits the state education mindset.?Think intervention and the schools loose ground every time.

Don’t expect any help from Gov. Tomblin either. He has now “done his part” to appease his voter block. Nothing more. Nothing will change. Ditto the rest of the elected.

Salwa Amin, a member of the cast of the hit MTV show “Buckwild,” was arrested Sunday evening, along with two other people, by members of the Central West Virginia Drug Task Force.

Amin was arrested along with Shawn Booker, age 42, of Detroit, Michigan and Jason Jones, age 31, of Summersville, WV.

All three are charged with possession with intent to distribute and three counts of conspiracy.

Nicholas County Prosecutor P.K. Milam said Monday members of the task force learned from a confidential drug informant a load of drugs was coming into the area from Michigan on Sunday.

Officers staked out a home in the area and observed the vehicle with Michigan plates roll up.

Observing officers watched heavy foot traffic in and out of the home indicating drug activity and obtained a search warrant.

“When they executed the search warrant they found these three individuals in a shed outside the residence,” said Milam.

“The search resulted in a purse belonging to Salwa and oxycodone was found in her purse.  Shawn Booker was in possession of a large amount of money and inside the shed were three packages of heroin.”

Milam said they learned from one of the three there was a plan to further distribute the drugs in the area.

“The Jones subject gave a statement and indicated both Amin and Booker had travelled here for the purpose of distributing those narcotics to people in the county,” Prosecutor Milam said.

All three individuals were arraigned before a Nicholas County Magistrate Monday morning.  Bond is set for all three at $200,000 each.  They are lodged in the Central Regional Jail at Flatwoods in lieu of bond.

A preliminary hearing will be set for all three within 10-days.

Amin is one of the nine young people featured on the hit MTV series which follows their lives in and around Kanawha County and other locations in West Virginia.

The arrest comes a week after MTV announced plans for a second season for the series.
