The corrupt judge did sign an unconstitutional order after he put the burden of proof on the accused but it didn't stand long. The Order Vacating his unconstitutional order is in the right column. Black always seems to forget that when he flaps his gums. The judge was recused from my case because of his illegal order and he was FORCED to go in and vacate it. Notice how Liar predator Black fails to list the cause number so anyone who can read and check the file out for themselves? He is a pervy PUNK. I wrote it before and I write it again because I STILL HAVE THE PROOF IN HIS PERSONNEL FILE.
Laura Prigmore was alone on the case at this point. It was after her un constitutional antics enticed the judge to sign an illegal order were crammed back up her where the sun don't shine that the the infamous Greenberg Trauaig Attorney, Mary Olga Lovett Warren joined in on the case. When the case was finally reheard before a visiting judge, He came down on the side of Truth and Justice and reversed the original order and found in my favor. I could have sued the Punk Black but had more improtant fish to fry (politically speaking that is)
OPD PARTIALLY ANSWER OPEN RECORDS REQUEST
The below narrative is the probable cause affidavit filed by OPD's Tammy Heeth. The law firm representing the City of Onalaska is seeking an OAG opinion on witholding the body cam video because it is part of the investigation. The fact that they want to withold it confirms the video evidence does exist.
ISD ANSWERS OPEN RECORDS REQUEST
The Onalaska ISD administration did confirm that the mom did come into the office and make a verbal complaint against the traffic control officer Heeth as claimed by the mother but no written document was made by the school or exists. Also it has been confirmed that neither camera on that side of the school captured the event on tape. "Our cameras are focused on the parking lot and the indicent occurred just outside their view."
There has been no reply by the city of Onalaska to The Sentinel request for open records and video but a non official source states that OPD officer Heeth is claiming that the mom struck her with her vehicle.
OPD RESOURCE OFFICER IMPLICATED IN RETALIATION ARREST
Eight year veteran of the Onalaska PD effected the elementary school arrest of a disabled mom delivering her children to school on April Fools day. OPD officer, Tammy Heeth, no stranger to controversy and "anger issue" complaints from the past, attempted to pull this mother out of her car window by the hair of the head according to the arrested mom.
School administrators confirm to The Sentinel that in the days prior to her arrest, the mom had taken the time to park and go into the school office to file a complaint about the traffic control person from an incident that occurred between them that very morning. The mom alleged that she was singled out and made to go around back to drop her kids when the cars in front of her and behind her were allowed to continue dropping kids in the normal place.
According to the mom, some days later, she and her children were confronted by Heeth in the Onalaska Brookshire Bros store and had a verbal altercation.
On the morning of April first, the mom was in line to drop her kids when she claims that Heeth, once again wearing a traffic vest only and no OPD uniform, jumped in front of her vehicle banging the hood then worked her way around the vehicle to the open drivers window grabbing the mom by the hair and attempting to pull her out the window to effect an arrest. The mom was arrested, her elementary school kids traumatized and she was charged with 'Aggravated Assault on a Peace Officer' and taken to the Polk County Jail.
STATE REP BAILES TACKLES TAX ISSUE
State Representative Ernest Bailes Joint-Authors Bill to Freeze Property Taxes for Elderly and Disabled
AUSTIN, TX - State Representative Ernest Bailes co-authored HB 1705 and HJR 84 by Representative Mike Schofield to freeze the entire property tax bills of elderly and disabled Texans.
"Property taxes all over Texas are rising steeply, forcing Texans who may be on a fixed income into other states for retirement," said Bailes. "This issue has been brought to my attention by countless constituents and I am proud to joint-author this legislation."
Currently, under Chapter 11 of the Tax Code, elderly and disabled individuals receive a cap on the half of taxes which fund schools. This bill addresses the other portion of taxes that fund counties, cities, and special purpose districts.
This measure not only establishes a cap on the total amount of ad valorem taxes that jurisdictions can impose on elderly or disabled property owners, but their surviving spouses as well.

SHERIFF CAPERS SIGNS LETTER
Hundreds of sheriffs from 38 states joined together signing a letter to Joe Biden urging him to cease and desist with the immigration policies he has instituted since taking office. The letter outlines the dangers to the American people that Biden's disasterous policies have caused.
My only complaint is that the letter stops short of calling Biden an enemy of the American people and a pinkodemocommie.
POLK CO 4/6/2021
SHERIFF ADDRESSES MULTIPLE ALLEGATIONS
In the midst of a full court press to get The Sentinel out on a limb publishing fake news, several 'sources' loaded us down with every imagineable allegation that could be construed against the Polk Co S.O. and the new sheriff. Ranging from allegations of sex orgies in the jail to openly operating a drug den behind bars and employees lying to the Texas Rangers were presented to The Sentinel from an 'anonymous' source as valid.
When I weighed those allegations against the factual events of Sheriff Lyons arresting and charging a jailer with deviant sexual acts and promptly initiating a Ranger investigation of former Jailer, William Jerry for physically abusing inmates, the allegations gave me pause to consider the claims.
Our direct questions to Sheriff Lyons and Chief Childers were once again answered promptly and in writing with much candor. As Sheriff Lyons aknowledges, there are problems to be addressed and his record so far proves he and his department are pressing forward to solve those problems and be as transparent as possible.
There is a fine line on open records that pertain to an open investigation. Our last desire is to interfere with any investigation. We hereby withdraw any suggestion that the Polk Co Sheriff is being less than transparent. Byron Lyons is not an attorney and has a legitimate duty to the people of Polk County to seek legal advice on records releases. It can be frustrating when we want to know now but I have been wrong before.
NEWTON COUNTY 3/24/2021
TCOLE RECORDS PROVE FIRING - HIRING
Former ACPD officer Gregson was fired the day we broke the story about the injuries Ms. Farr sustained from his arrest tactics. TCOLE records also prove that he moved his LEO Commission to Newton County Pct 4 Constable's office the next day. It was the same with William Jerry. DA sweeps their crimes under the rug and it is Just a big merry go round from agency to agency. Chris Lima, the same thing. Merry go round.
TCOLE has no teeth. It is a toothless wonder that is just a big file cabinet. If you are a licensed AC guy or a licensed Cosmotologist, just a complaint can cause your license to be suspended and you be forced to take a drug test. TCOLE has no such power. Time for some change there. See The Sentinel piece on Criminal Justice Reform.
CORRECTION: UPDATE 3/21/2021
ALABAMA COUSHATTA PD OFFICER
The original information received at The Sentinel stated that Mike Gregson, the officer who interacted with Farr was a Polk Co. Deputy who had been dispatched to transport Ms. Farr to the Polk Co Jail. The statement, attributed to 'sources', was wrong and we take this opportunity to correct and clarify the information. Our source had the officer's name right, the injury right, just the wrong agency. Needless to say, The Sentinel has not received an official statement (we rarely do) nor do we expect to now that Sheriff Lyons has taken to running my requests for information through the corrupt and lying DA, Bill Lee 'the kid' Hon again. NO Elected official is required to do that. It is his choice that is imposed by Hon to those who are willing to let him control the flow of information.
POLK COUNTY 3/17/2021
CITIZEN INJURED IN 'TAKE DOWN'
Broken or cracked ribs is the diagnosis given to Polk County resident, Richarrel Farr after being 'slammed' by a commissioned peace officere according to reliable sources. Former ACPD police officer, Mike Gregson took Farr down hard.
Gregson was fired, according to sources, for a prior 'road rage' incident that had already occurred and was the straw that broke the camels back in his documented history of having anger issues.
We have not received any official statement on this incident but know she was injured at the hands of police.
CORRIGAN PD 2/25/2021
CORRIGAN PD HIRES REJECT . . AGAIN
Two days after his suspension from the Polk Co. S.O. for the charge of beating an inmate in custody, William Jerry was hired by Corrigan PD according to TCOLE records. Corrigan PD Cheif Gibson has demonstrated a pattern of hiring criminals with a badge and giving them cover. Gibson and Hon worked hand in hand to deny The Sentinel the records on Christopher Lima that show a bunch of complaints by citizens and even his own family. Corrigan reduced Lima to 'part time' but Trinity County Sheriff, Woody Wallace has hired Lima full time.
Wallace and The Sentinel sparked years ago when Wallace hired former HPD officer and failed SJC sheriff candidate, Royce Wells when we obtained public records from the City of Houston proving Wells to be a sexual predator.
POLK CO S.O. 2/23/2021
JAIL CAPTIAN ASSAULTS INMATES
William Jerry, a long time employee of Polk Co. S.O. is under investigation by the Texas Rangers according to reliable sources. His chronic bad temper and anger management issues have resulted in MULTIPLE complaints to The Sentinel and it always seems to be a white inmate that suffers from the rage of the black captain. The most recent incident is alleged to have occured tuesday morning and involved a severe beating and a tazer put to the temple of the inmate. Another confirmed assault by William Jerry on a different white inmate went unpunished less than a year ago.
According to the source, "capt" William Jerry was placed on administrative leave and the inmate was moved to another facility by the Rangers. Polk Co S.O. Employees were ordered not to speak of the incident but even they have had a belly full of the cover ups.
We are seeking open records and an official statement. Administrative leave is NOT sufficent for anyone that will beat a man who is in custody. It is that simple.
JP DISMISSES PUBLIC INTOXICATION CHARGE AGAINST ADAMS
JP Robert Johnson, PCT 3, Polk Co, was forced to dismiss the PI charges on Jessica Adams because despite the arrest and booking info listed, there was NO FORMAL COMPLAINT on the Public Intoxication filed. Either an inept mistake by the officer or a corrupt method of looking good up front but no merit to the arrest because the paperwork is not complete. I commend the JP for following the law and standing on our probable cause protections. I question the LEO's motives.
The article linked to this headline involves the recent culmination of a federal investigation The Sentinel reported on over a year ago. The Fed's efforts brought the roosters home to roost. We shared the past article about a false front airplane registry scheme based in a town with no airport yet enough planes registered here that every home could have one.
The recent arrest of some involved by the Feds put Polk County's lead law enforcement officer on the "Duh" map again. Are you still turning a blind eye Bill Lee? Like you did in the Linda Vincent case and the 'Willgo' real estate operation out of the Pct office? Like you continue to do about the documented crimes Christopher Lima has committed?
Since we have learned over the last few years that there is no Ranger investigation unless the DA says there is a Ranger investigation, why are you so quick to authorize an investigation on a black jailer assaulting a white inmate Bill Lee but have yet to open any investigation on Lima? Are you a racist?
POLK COUNTY SHERIFF LYONS TAKES ACTION
Trial by fire would be the only way to describe what the newly elected sheriff of Polk County has endured since taking office. From the deviant jailer to the abusive treatment of an inmate, Sheriff Lyons has taken appropriate action and been transparent with The Sentinel in a dramatic break from Hammack's opaque and non responsive policies.
According to the source of the above photo, it was taken at a 'white power' rally in Charlottesville, West VA, in August of 2017. This source also provided the photo of Will Hon Jr below on the left leaving The Sentinel to find out if the men in the photo above are the Polk Co DA and his son. We researched a profile photo of Lee Hon out of our archives from the now infamous Republican Club meeting Hon filed felony charges on me for attending. How ironic that the photo he wanted to put me in prison for taking is what squashes this rumor photo going around in Polk Co. Can we say 'Doppleganger'. Anyone can see the photo above does NOT have a 'turkey' neck droop.
LOCAL ACTIVIST SCORES VICTORY . . . . . . . with no teeth in it.
The city of Onalaska was called down by the Texas Attorney General Open Records division, aka 'toothless' (when it comes to enforcement) after responding to Rosemary Covalt's O.R. request with a projected bill in excess of four thousand dollars. Ms. Covalt appealed to the Texas O.A.G. for help and she recently received a c.c. letter addressed to the city from the O.A.G. ordering them to produce some records.
REP BAILES TACKLES C.A.D. MAL PRACTICE
The tax code of Texas REQUIRES that the Central Appraisal Districts (CAD) reappraise every property in their county once in every three year cycle yet current texas law allows the county to back tax property up to five years for any changes or omissions. District 18 State Rep, Ernest Bailes has put forth legislation that would limit that back tax to 3 years. It only makes sense. If the state is required to reappraise every parcel every 3 years and fail to do so, thus letting an error 'ride' into another 3 year cycle, why should the property owner pay the price for their failure? This addresses property left off of the roll.
How about property left on the roll? When a house burns and the the county is still taxing it at full market value 6 years later, who is at fault? The property owner has the responsibility to notify the appraisal district of the improvement being gone but circumstances sometimes prevent that. I can see letting them pay that tax for 3 years because of their own failure but after the state is REQUIRED BY LAW to reappraise the parcel every three years and miss the fact that that big ole house is no longer there, the burden is on the state to correct their roll.
The SJC CAD website makes mention of the three year cycle of required reappraisal and mention the law but add the phrase, "when time and money allows" that is NOT in the tax code. She wrote them an out and I have witnessed the CAD taxing structures that have been gone for years past the 3 year cycle. That is theft.
POLK CO 1/15/2021
SHERIFF LYONS ARRESTS DEVIANT JAILER
David Ray Miller, a former Polk Co Jailer was arrested and charged with Official Oppression this week. It is alleged that he was engaging in a sexual relationship with an inmate in custody.
Official Oppression is the most often complaint recieved at The Sentinel and most overlooked crime in Polk county. Even the DA, Bill Lee 'the retaliator' Hon, is a regular offender and violator of this very statute. As a 'Retaliator' who some say suffers from the 'zipper down' syndrome himself, it will be interesting to watch him prosecute a man for the very crime Hon has committed frequently during his tenure.
(a) A public servant acting under color of his
office or employment commits an offense if he:
(1) intentionally subjects another to mistreatment or to arrest, detention, search, seizure, dispossession, assessment, or lien that he knows is unlawful;
(2) intentionally denies or impedes another in the exercise or enjoyment of any right, privilege, power, or immunity, knowing his conduct is unlawful; or
(3) intentionally subjects another to sexual harassment
You see, the definition of 'Official Oppression' does include pressing an employee for sexual favors as well as an inmate. It includes lying to the Texas Rangers calling a public record document, 'sensitive documents' when Hon falsely accused the clerks of secreting some out to The Sentinel. Even State Rep, James White, when confronted about not doing anything about the corrupt DA in his district claimed, "He (Hon) had a reputation for retaliation before I was ever elected"
BLIND 'UNITY' ANTI BIBLICAL CONCEPT
For the left to expect the majority of a Christian nation to embrace their baby killing, deviant exercises into the whole gender dysphoria realm is an idiotic expectation. We CAN love the queer and forgive the abortionists enough to tell them the truth.
As Christians, we cannot accept blatant corruption in our public servants that seem bent on stealing, killing and destorying us. The bible teaches us plainly that satan is the father of lies. We have had a belly full.
It is the leftist who are bent on destroying our nation that have incited violence. We are a forgiving bunch because we recognize that we need forgiveness but there comes a point when silence and inaction equal accepting the darkness as a compadre. That we will not do.
SEVEN OAKS 1/4/2021
NEW OWNER ENHANCES TO 'HATE' CRIME
After a local contractor and business men once again used the longstanding prescriptive r.o.w. known as Hester Ln to render services to a muli-generational family land owner that lies between US hwy 59 and the old Hwy 35 roadway in Seven Oaks, the new kid on the block decides his money grants him the right to dictate who can and cannot come down this public r.o.w. based entirely on HATE.
Based soley on those feelings and nothing to do with Historical fact, the current owner, Allison, did the former rights stealing owner (Ronnie Legget) one better. Instead of just moving the fence north about 50 feet to the north side of the road then putting up a road blocking gate when he crossed back to his line on the south line of the road before joining the US 59 r.o.w. like Leggett did, the new owner once again gated the public Hester Ln r.o.w. but now has actually put a lock on Raymond Criswell's gate into his own property 500 feet down Hester Ln.
These land grabbing schemes are old news in Polk County. When you have FORMER commissioner bob willis running his real estate scheme right out of his Pct office where he is profiting from tax sale properties that he voted to set the tax rate on that caused the owner to lose it, that is repugnant. When Willis is getting the list of properties that are about to be foreclosed on, it gives him a jump on the gun to buy out stressed property ownership that he voted to 'stress'. It just stinks. IF, and that is a big IF, the people of Polk County continue to look the other way while the 'big boys' play, just do The Sentinel a favor and don't call me anymore.
Allison has not only expressed his hatred for Raymond Criswell, he has pledged a portion of his bountiful funds to the project of proving how much hate he has for Criswell. Isnt it odd how the Criswell Tract would go a long way toward connecting the two new comer investment parcels if only it could be devalued and or forced to tax sale?
If the market value is increased while the owner is under Ag exemption paying much less in taxes, it might not be noticed. Add to that ploy, 'landlocking' the target property so they can't take care of their cows. (exactly what happened to Criswell already) When the target loses their Ag status all of the sudden he is facing tripled market value. Then when they can't pay, it is either purchased at tax sale or the owner approached and offered substantially less to keep from losing it. Can we say Wilgo?
This story isn't over so Follow along with us on the foray into the underbelly of systemic corruption in Polk County. Let us see how big money and 'contacts' in Polk County fare against the truth of the matter. Hester Lane is a public R.O.W. no matter who owns the land beneath it.
ANGELINA COUNTY 12/15/2020
DA INHERITS MARTIN'S MUCKRAKER
"NO MORE Open Records Requests is part of bond conditions."???????????????
Former Angelina County District Attorney, Joe Martin, left an open can of worms in the back of his bottom drawer when he jumped ship right after elections.
The DA elect, Ms. Janet Cassels who was appointed to finish the rest of Martin's unexpired term after winning the election, must have been cleaning out his 'uh oh' drawers because the first thing she did was distance herself from the 'special prosecutor' status Martin held on the bogus case Lee Hon had him bring against me. Having bragged to more than one constituent that he could, "get a ham sandwich indicted", Martin found out that to carry a crooks water makes you a crook too and I am not afraid to prove just that. A former employee of Hon's, Martin just assumed it would be like all the rest. Indict them, arrest them, jail them and ruin their lives. That way you teach them and theirs to never cross you again.
Making the process the punishment even when there is no evidence has worked for Hon for so many years, Martin thought one more for the road wouldn't matter. Or was it two?
A complex and fascinating Angelina County case The Sentinel has been investigating for over a year now was left in Martin's low level drawer. A lot of similarities between this case, my case and several more in this part of Texas that establish a distinct and 'by the play book' pattern of prosecutorial misconduct among the corrupt few when it comes to indicting those pesky investigative journalists that don't care who you are or even who you think you are.
A controversial and dogged muckraker from Angelina County who published The East Texas Reporter and did provocative livestreams on FB named David Stua found his ham sandwich A$$ indicted in Angelina County and charged with a sexual crime against a 'child'. The so called 'crime' was videod and livestreamed to FB. The so called child was a college student on a college campus whose hard work and gifted abilities had him enrolled in college courses when he was under 17 and still in high school.
We have not seen the video but it amounted to Stua approaching various people and saying, "I believe in circumcision. You want to see?" and then filming their reaction when he produced a paper, "Certificate of Circumscison" to show them.
Stua had been admonished in the College library not to use the word, "Circumcision" out loud prior to him having the idea to do the interviews that landed him in legal trouble. In fact, the library called the law on Stua for using the word circumcision. Stua would have to admit that he was warned that it was a bad idea to do the certificate of circumcision interviews when he voiced the idea to a fellow muckracker from near Waco. Not because he thought it was illegal but because it was distasteful. Stua did the interviews and the long arm of the law hammered down when he asked two teen males that question on video.
One man's ceiling is another man's floor on what is socially acceptable but when it comes to the law, those preferences are out the window. The very judge who imposed the civil rights denying abusive bond conditions just happened to be one of the elected officials Stua was and had investigated. There were open records requests pending for phone records that one claimed his phone, "erased them every day' and another just flat refused to answer. What in the allegations of wrong doing against Stua warrants an ankle monitor, no smart phone, no computer, no internet and no travel outside the county? Asking someone that rude and smart aleck question? NO MORE OPEN RECORDS REQUESTS is part of bond conditions for that? BLATANT CORRUPTION HERE
It has all the earmarks of shutting a vocal political liability down so he can't ask questions, communicate or publish stories or documents, not protecting the public. FIRST of all, the judge should have recused himself because of the ongoing conflict between him and the Muckraker. Then maybe his personal political goals (not being exposed for wrong doing) would not have caused this blatant abuse of power.
What most overlook is that for these kind of abuses to flourish, it takes cooperation of more than one. Can we say R.I.C.O. ?
BIG BAD BOY FIZZELS UNDER LIGHT OF DAY
Big City BOYS Logistics truck driver's big story devolves into a lying pile of hooey under the light of the Truth shining on his allegations. I just wonder if Corrigan PD will embrace him now that he is denigrating The Sentinel as a lying rag under the philosephy that 'the enemy of my enemy is my friend'. According to sources, Mayor Gibson came to the city council meeting and apologized for her behavior and left the meeting leaving the outcome in the hands of the city attorney, Tatum. AD Hollowell did not do his homework before making allegations against me. He is not the first to call The Sentinel a liar. He won't be the last. Any reader knows that stupid people saying stupid things doesn't make me angry because it is an opportunity to slice and dice them one more time Cincinati. Calling me 'antifa' is as far removed from the truth as you can get but I expect no less from a muslim convert that hates America.
LONE TRUCKER THREATENS RACE WAR
After a long conversation with AD Hollowell, it came to light that the 'racism' he alleges in the heart of the mayor's father and PD Chief is the problem in Corrigan and his main concern. The Sentinel counseled Hollowell to focus on the corruption aspect that he can prove instead of the tangent of racism he feels prompted the confrontation but that counsel fell on deaf ears. Hollowell hung up on me after saying he was going to Malcolm X's right hand man (his cousin he claims) and bring a march on Corrigan to battle the systemic racism he feels is the root of all the problems in America. A devout Muslim, Hollowell took time to quote the bible regarding taking up our Cross and seems to ignore the fact that is was muslims that sold his black ancestors into slavery to begin with. Hollowell did mention his white ancestors as his mixed race heritage is evident but feels the remaining portion of his DNA deserves reparations. According to Hollowell's own mouth, he did a stretch in prison on a conspiracy charge. Any black whose name came up in the conversation who did not adhere to Hollowell's view and position was, according to him, a "house nigger", a phrase he used multiple times during the interview.
JANE FONDA MAKES APPEARANCE
Corrigan Mayor Gibson makes her debut as 'Jane Fonda' for public consumption. A 'family affair' unfolded on the shoulder of Hiway 59 in Corrigan as PD Chief Gibson, Mayor and wife, Joanna Gibson and business owner who is father of the mayor all confronted and harrassed a man stopped for speeding.
The blatant abuse of official capacity was put on full display and was streamed live on FB by the driver, A.D. Hollowell out of Indiana.
The Sentinel has published proof of the corruption in Corrigan before and specifically the illegal acts of Chief Gibson before and forwarded the evidence to the FBI, Texas Rangers and the Polk Co DA, Lee Hon but NOTHING has been done about the abuse of power so far. The rumors are flying on FB that The Rangers are involved. Hollowell claims his video keeps being removed by FB. Yall forgive me if I don't hold my breath about anything being done about this blatant Polk County corruption. Ho Hum.
The Sentinel has reached out to A.D. Hollowell and gotten a reply. We will follow up on this story with more details.
PD HIRES CHIEF, NEVER LEAVES FARM
The city of Onalaska voted in Jessica Station as police chief for the troubled department keeping within the bounds of a fixed process. With over a half dozen applicants from all over with a great deal of experience, the city chose one of if not the LEAST EXPERIENCED candidate from within their own controllable ranks. Of all of the applicants The Sentinel was able to interview, not a one was called in for an interview nor their references checked. One person attending the meeting summed it up with this comment: "They failed to do a proper search for the most qualified. Again, the community gets screwed."
The Sentinel has reached out to the mayor for comment.
Sentinel sources say the Onalaska chief of police resigned his position. Recently placed on administrative leave, Maddox garnered attention for a fire at his residence and was not extended any 'professional courtesy' that it is alledged he requested of the ticketing officer. Onalaska has been plauged by corruption and deviant officers for many years. From the 'gun running cop' in 2012 till now, it is a pattern that needs to be broken. When your largest industry is tourism, protecting public perception is not only a political consideration, it is an economic must for the good of the people. When residents joke, "Welcome to Polk County, come on vacation, leave on probation", there is an issue.
ANOTHER POLK CO POSTER BOY
Neighbors alledge that Onalaska PD Chief, John Maddox was the subject of an investigation and possible citation for illegal burning recently. No official information will be available until early next week more than likely but witnesses say the chief was burning toxic and harmful debris on his property and a Polk Co Law Enforcement Officer showed up at the scene. It appeared that the officer issued Maddox a citation. The Sentinel will dig a lil deeper.
LIBRARIAN CASE REFERRED TO DA BY CITY OF SHEPHERD
According to a City of Shepherd spokesperson, the emebezzlement case against the former Librarian, Helen Marie Johnson has been turned over to the SJC DA's office. We will seek more info as to the exact status of the case and report those findings.
$16,OOO NOW AND AUDIT NOT COMPLETE
An ongoing investigation into the theft of library funds is not complete according to a Sentinel source close to the community. Although the investigation has focused on library funds, it may well expand to include Helen Marie Johnson's association with the EDC (Economic Development Committee) as treasurer as well as other events and goings on she seemed to gravitate toward as keeper of the purse.
Multiple complaints and allegations made to The Sentinel in the past include the disappearance of artifacts that were donated to the library by citizens of the community.
1000 DOLLAR ADMISSION MORPHS TO OVER 6 K DURING AUDIT
According to our source, the librarian, Ms. Helen Marie Johnson has been terminated. The paperwork may show a 'resignation' but a choice between quitting or being fired is a Termination. It is that simple.
SHEPHERD LIBRARIAN ALLEGEDLY PILFERS 'COOKIE JAR'
According to reliable Sentinel sources, the City of Shepherd is conducting an audit to determine the extent of embezzeled funds alleged to have been taken by the current Librarian. There has been no public statement and my source is not a city official but we are confident that the funds have been pilfered. The matter will be handled in executive session to decide the course of action moving forward.
ONALASKA FIRES TWO, SUSPENDS CHIEF
Deja vu as the City of Onalaska fires a couple of cops for illegal and deviant behavior. At least this time there was an arrest and there is going to be some prosecution. Please watch for the story headlined, "Zipper Down Syndrome", that we have been working on to publish soon for more details. We can understand that there will always be some bad apples but what has to change is the non prosecution of criminals behind a badge and gun that are discovered.
POLK CO TEXAS 7/4/2020
WHERE OH WHERE DID OUR FBI GO?
Where oh where can they be? Even more pertinent, where does the evidence keep going? That is the question being posed to The Sentinel by others who have collected, tied with a ribbon and delivered evidence documents to every agency from DA Hon up to and including the FBI. I cant speak directly to their efforts but I can speak to mine.
The attached snip above is of a return email notice that surprised me after having communicated with and provided evidence and evidence sources for the investigation The Sentinel started into the criminal embezzlement case against Linda Vincent. Agent Carrol and I never met but he did meet in person with more than a few in this community. We did communicate over several months as the Vincent case unfolded. Now you guys know why I just bit my tongue when many in the community were calling me fake news over the Vincent story.
Agent Carroll was a 501 (c) 3 specialist transferred in from Washington DC for this case but he became interested in Hon's criminal activity after The Sentinel provided the agent with proof documents. Here is the first email I received from Agent Carroll. He was already familiar with my work.
Agents retire and life moves on but where did the file of evidence documents I provided go? We can not get any answer. Others have given evidence files that have disappeared at EVERY LEVEL of law enforcement Evidence documents of the criminal acts of Lee Hon and Tommy Coleman have been provided by multiple sources over many years and all the Ranger can manage to find is a queer cop in Onalaska it appears doesnt like women?
ONALASKA PD OFFICER ARRESTED
The 'Surprise' arrest of Onalaska PD Lt. Moore is only a surprise to the multiple complainants who were rebuffed by the Chief of Police of Onalaska when they came to complain about Moore's conduct on the streets of Onalaska. One case The Sentinel has been looking into involved Moore leaving a pregnant woman standing on the side of the road after having her car towed when she was able to produce proof of insurance that Moore refused to examine. It was a picture of the insurance card her husband texted to her and he said he was on the way with the original only moments away. Moore threatened that if anybody showed up on the scene to interfere with his investigation, he would arrest them. When the couple complained the next day, the ticket was dropped but the chief REFUSED to accept a complaint against Moore.
The LULAC Rep for Polk County has complained to The Sentinel multiple times that the Onalaska Police Chief, Polk Co DA and especially Livingston PD ignore citizen efforts to file complaints on officers and have been for years. "They just ignore us", she said "and dont want the proof documents" Covalt stated. Being hispanic, Ms Covalt attributes it to racism. Same with the NAACP Rep for Polk County who also complains of being ignored when they make legitimate complaints. Hopefully this case will prove to them both what I have been saying all along, it isn't about color, it is about corruption.
The pregnant woman in this story and her husband are white and their complaint was ignored too. The majority of people who have complained to The Sentinel of this treatment are white. The small percentage of corrupt cops overall is a testament to the vast majority of men and women with integrity that serve but more than a few that The Sentinel has had complaints on have one thing in common . . . . . Work or worked for Onalaska PD under a DA who remains "unaware" of their crimes.
My only conclusion on the Moore stop of the pregnant woman is that since Moore lives with his husband in a homosexual marriage according to local residents, then perhaps his bias against an obviously hetrosexual woman was showing.
The problem remains when there is a chronic 'no complaint' corruption in the LEO leadership in Polk County. The snip below is from and email The Sentinel received from former Onalaska PD officer, Christopher Lima a couple of years ago.
Not only did we provide Lima with access to the documents we got via open records, we took his advice and asked for public records regarding any complaints filed against him from prior employors. DA Hon fought the release of the Polk Co S.O. documents but The Sentinel prevailed at the OAG open records division and received a package of 400 pages of complaints against Lima. NOT A SINGLE criminal charge or even a disciplinary write up was included. Hon illegally redacted quite a few pages from the Onalaska ISD and Child Protective Services complaint. One 'investigation' into the child abuse complaint the Onalaska ISD filed by a Polk Co deputy claimed the complaint had no merit and no action was taken. One woman who had filed multiple complaints against Lima for stalking and harassing her and her children was criminally charged with forgery by Hon at Lima's request. She beat the charges proving them false and still no discipline from Hon against Lima for his crimes. It doesnt stop there. Corrigan mayor joins in the deceit being perpetrated against the people to protect Lima.

BOB WILLIS STILL LYING IN PRINT
It still seems to be escaping Bob Willis that MORAL Conservatism is the most prominent plank in the Conservative platform. Without moral conservatism, you are NOT a conservative. So when Bob CONTINUES to print and distribute campaigan propaganda that is full of lies, he removes himself from the realm of being a conservative. This ad released after the Polk County GOP exec committee issued and published a "Statement of Condemnation" against Willis because of his illegal and unethical antics, Bob's response was to issue ANOTHER lying political propaganda ad.
POINT ONE- There is NO SUCH THING as a "Code of Ethics of the Texas GOP". It does not exist. Was does exist is the Texas GOP mission statment:
We are committed to advancing limited government, lower taxes, less spending and individual liberty. Our specific goals are to grow the Republican Party by reaching new voters, advance the Platform, which is grounded in conservative principle, and to keep Texas prosperous and free.
Do you see that 'grounded in conservative principle' Mr. Willis? Moral conservatism is the backbone of being a conservative. That means No LYING, No Slander, No filing false criminal charges for political purpose like you guys have been doing for years. The 'Fair Campaign Practices Act' is a code of political ethics that you have violated with impunity and then point and holler and accuse others of doing EXACTLY what you do.
POINT TWO- It was YOU who defamed your character by taking the illegal (yes filing a false criminal complaint is a crime) and unethical steps you did to try and steal an election with LIES. All the party did was call you out for your own actions.
POINT THREE- The 'Club' is the source of the problems. Over the years, their leadership (tommy coleman, lee hon) had been successful in wresting the power away from the local party by controlling the money. It was the same thing in SJC a few years ago. The money folks would gather and 'club' it up and pick their candidates to support based on cronyism, moneyism, nepotism and good ole boyism and forgo the main platform plank of the Republican Party, MORAL CONSERVATIAM. Former constable Lou Rogers was our club's "Lee Hon". They were used to the tactic of running last minute ads full of lies timed to prevent the opposition from having time to respond. Then came the advent of social media and instant press. The Genesis of The Sentinel, in fact, was when a local judge told me, "Steve, don't pick a fight with someone who buys ink by the barrel" when I took on a local publisher for printing a lying ad he knew was a lying ad. My comment in reply was, "Judge, by the time the ink is dry, it is old news" and went home and started The Sentinel. So you see Bob Willis, You can tell and print your lying propaganda ad in the last issue before elections but just as quick, we can dispute and refute your lies with The Truth. You are a Liar and a Crook. It is that simple.
As you can see from the last two photo snips, the mayor of corrigan is complicent with covering for Lima. Corrigan still sponsors his gun and badge.
Like his boss, John Bradley, says the Watchdog, the same prosecutor openly mocked requests for DNA testing that ultimately exonerated Mr. Morton: "During one of the Michael Morton hearings in September of this year, Coleman was overheard by several people mocking Morton's attorney, John Raley, who had argued for the relevance of a key piece of evidence which played a pivotal role in exonerating Morton. In a demeaning tone, Coleman said, "Ewwww! Bloody bandana! Bloody bandana!" in a cynical attempt to discredit the evidence.
"If we don't get what we want, we will burn this system down and replace it"
Shut up and listen dumb ass. It isn't about color. It is about statism vs liberty. That conflict is colorless. President Trump has already given you police reform and remarkable legistation has already been presented and the demoncrats are blocking it. You are going to have to get off of the mind control plantation and see for yourself and change course or fall victim to the manipulation of the dumb asses among us promoting marxism and reap their reward. It is coming soon. The Patriots of America, black, white, red and yellow, have had enough of your anarchist Bull Shit and are ready to put a boot in your ignorant asses. It is that simple. If you neither condone or condemn the rioting and looting, you alread have a fence picket up your a$$. Blacks arming themselves is not violence. All the black patriots are armed, I assure you. Using the arms to loot and steal and abuse the lone victims in the name of anarchy is violence. Just spend the weekend in Chicago if you don't understand that. You either support law and order or you are part of the anarchy and chaos being fermented against us by our enemies. You are either a manipulated dumb ass or intentional enemy of this nation. Neither choice is good for you.
USA BRUISED BY BLACK AND BLUE LIVES MATTER
Two movements that appear to oppose one another actually have some identical practices and anti American, anti civilized society procedures. What are those common characteristics?
1) They both tout an exclusive mantra in the very movements name. Black Lives Matter is about black lives and Blue Lives Matter is about blue lives.
2) BOTH communities have an unwritten rule about outing each other for criminal acts. In the black community, if you report or identify the perpetrator of a black crime, you are retaliated against. In the blue community, if you report or identify the perpetrator of a blue crime, you are retaliated against.
3) Brutality and violence are each's answer to the other and "outsiders"
In a civilized society, reporting criminal offenses is the mark of integrity and character. Fear is satan's playground and both communities rely on fear to hold onto power. Those days need to be over for all of our sakes because #OUR LIVES MATTER.
BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT ROOTS SHOWING
"HIJACKED" is the word used by conservative Christian black Americans regarding the recent 'trans'fer of the BLM movement fighting police brutality morphing into endorsing the deviant lifestyle of the "Trans" movement. What the lady in the video linked HERE is not comprehending is that the BLM movement was started, not to oppose police brutality but to fundamentally transform the USA. It is a leftist organization from the get go with a leftist agenda. The proof is plain now.
LPD CONFIRMS 'WEE HOURS' VISIT
Livingston PD spokesperson, Matt Parish called The Sentinel yesterday with initial claims that Sgt Ward knocked on Grant's door but got no answer. He further stated there was only one officer at the door.
After first confirming the time of the incident my sources claimed with the LPD official as 3 am, my next comment was, "He (Grant) said they were wearing body cams so if you can prove to me that the NAACP rep is bald face lying to me, I will twist him up on the front page and you know I will."
That is when I got the run down on the new system having body cameras assigned to the vehicle and intergration issues and "I am not making excuses but. . . ."
Parish called Sgt Ward and then called The Sentinel office again stating that infact Grant did come to the door but not open it and they did have a conversation through the door and it did match exactly what Grant stated in our interview.
During both conversations, Parish stated that the officers (yes plural) were in the area having been chasing an underage run a way that the Alabama Coushatta police dept had notified them of. After asking for that public record document to publish so that I can put to rest the appearance of retalliatory efforts by cops Grant has had run in's with before that know EXACTLY where he lives, I was promised the document in "a few minutes" via email with only the underage girls name redacted. It has not arrived.
Lt. Parish also stated that his officers knocked on every door in the apratment complex at the time. As a pro law and order patriot, I would love to hear from other residents in the complex that their doors were knocked on too. 936 730 5717 or email@example.com
6/1/2020 POLK COUNTY
An apparent and blatant pattern of ingoring police misconduct issues brought to their attention by voice, by mail, by letter to the editor plagues those in vital leadership positions within the Polk County Community. I say apparent because even ignoring all of The Sentinel evidence and publications on the topic, documented evidence of those pleas for help for years are proving one seasoned activist's claim that, "Their power is in ignoring us". LULAC rep, Rosemary Covalt of Onalaska, Texas observed the expression of that power by stating, "No one gets back to us", as she produced document after document of her and other's efforts to be heard that time has proven have and are being ignored. The real problem is, it is not just a POLK County problem.
Much of the frustration came to a head yesterday as Ms. Covalt and NAACP rep, Roy Grant visited Livingston City Hall and DA Hon's office. City Attorney Jim Wright did meet with the pair of activists but made no headway. DA Hon hid in his office. The staff said 'the kid' was there then his badge came out and said he wasn't.
Make of it what you will, but Sentinel sources confirm that 3 uniformed LPD officers' knocked on the NAACP reps apartment door at 3 am the next morning looking for a white woman whom they said was in the neighborhood. A 42 year Law Enforcement vet, Grant refused to open the door. "If I open the door after dark, I am going to have my gun in my hand", Grant assured The Sentinel, "I didn't see any need to go there".
The problem does not lie with the beat cop when corruption exists, it is in the leadership. As the top law enforcement person in Polk Co, DA Hon is the one who allows the corruption to exist by ignoring it. The complaints have been made. "Their power is in ignoring us".
As State Rep James White stated some years ago, "He (Hon) had a reputation for retalliation long before I was elected" while defending his inability to do anything about Hon's blatant violations. LPD demonstrated that 'step on your neck' tactic last night at Grant's door. It is their continuing philosephy. They have stepped on necks before. He has been stepping on necks for years and BRAGS that he can have you indicted in THREE MINUTES. Polk County. You have some great elected officials who love the county its people and put forth true conservative values. There are three boxes that protect our rights as citizens. The ballot box, the jury box and as a last resort, the ammo box. When the first two are corrupt, where does that leave us? Hon has violated the jury box by his own admision. Evidence Hon has violated the voting box exists but doesnt interest any real investigators. Sources claim the Brazos Co DA 'looked into' voting violations on Hon but never took the case before the grand jury. I do know that neither witness was approaced for evidence or a statement.
The Sentinel has fielded threats against elected officials in Polk Co including against Hon so the threat of violence is real even here in Polk County. Some people have perceived my calling out corruption as a hate for law and order since they read it filtered through their own hateful thought process but my effort is to root out the bad so the good is left. My greatest Hope assures that good prevails.
Two intelligent and well spoken men who easily articulate most of the problems with the BLM movement, a movement The Sentinel called, in an article published years ago, "The bastard child of Barrack Obama". The movement lost me right off of the bat with the militant anti American and racist stance it took as evidenced here by the same photo I published when I called it Obama's offspring. Black lives do matter to everyone it seems, except other blacks. Don't tell me you give a damn about black lives when you gun each other down in the streets, including innocent toddlers in their beds with no remorse. Or when you march into the abortion clinics in droves to abort your little black babies then flock to a political party that promotes infanticide as a main plank of it's platform. In order to join the democrat party, you are turning your back on the legitimate sacrifices and efforts our ancestors made and the fight many Christians, white and black waged through the Republican party to gain their freedom. Those are American values.
Why is the abortion rate so high in the black community? The women know chances are (ie: statisticaly speaking) that the baby daddy isn't going to settle down and help her raise that child.
Those same statistics also prove white lives don't matter to those same blacks. So many want to ignore the greater number of unarmed men killed by LEO's being white in favor of the ratio numbers that show black men are more likely per capita to be killed but then ignore the ratio numbers when it comes down to black on white crime vs white on black crime.
We fully endorse the protest and continue to protest American lives being lost at the hands of police state thugs but REFUSE to to endorse one of the most racist organizations I know of that promotes the false racist narrative.
When I was a cub reporter on the Advocate in Cleveland many years ago, Hambone Simpson was choked down and killed in the Cleveland City Jail. My EMS sources had already told me that his hands were rigormotised behind his back as if in cuffs on the floor of the jail cell when they got there.
Hambone was black. When I was in the PD a few days later a blonde white woman AP reporter walked in and asked the dispatch where MLK Blvd was because she was going to cover the march that was headed to the JP office to hear the autopsy report. A city cop in uniform told her, "You don't wont to go down there, you will get raped". My instant reply was, "Bull shit, come on lady, I will show you were it is."
We went to the site in "The quarters" and several of my friends from school approached and shook my hand or embraced me and I introduced them to the reporter so she could interview them. The march started and I rode my bike with the marchers all the way to the JP office. I was the only white boy there. When they read the autopsy report, we learned that Hambone had died of "Positional Asphyxia", there was undigested wad of cocaine in his gut and he had a large handprint bruise on his neck.
Then Jew Don Boney showed up and started attempting to make a racist issue out of Simpson's death. It was me that was there on the sidewalk and confronted Boney and told him, "It was a black cop that choked him down". "How is that racist?
The city council fired the police chief who was not even there and it was swept under the rug of time amid a non investigation.
My point is this. If you are African american, Irish american or Japanese american, etc, . . . . Go Home. If you are an American that is black, white, red or yellow, know that we have to stand together or hang seperatly. The floyd death is not a racial issue. It is a thug issue. Thugs come in all colors.
THE "GREAT WHITE HOPE" FOR AMERICA
As Jesse Lee Peterson calls him, President Donald Trump may veto Patriot Act renewal;
"The FBI should not be allowed to use the PATRIOT Act to surveil Americans' online activity without a warrant. Internet search and browsing history is extremely revealing in nature and the Fourth Amendment requires a warrant to obtain this information," the organizations wrote in the letter, first reported by The Register.
If the bill passes the House, it will move to President Donald Trump's desk to be signed into law. Trump previously suggested that he might veto the entire Patriot Act renewal, but has yet to take a clear stance on the bill.
We expect this kind of crap from the demoncrat communist party but when the so called leader of the conservative senate betrays the trust of the American Patriots, he needs to go. McConnell and Babin and any senator who supported this renewal of the Patriot Act needs to be voted out in favor a a real conservative at the first opportunity.
SENATE SEALS THE DEAL
The Kissinger Killing came to fruition today for the globalist community as our senate, allegedly by one vote, delivered America "down the river" where Henry Kissinger sold us so many years ago. The final lethal injection to our Constitutional probable cause protections is One signature away from becoming final law. The statists got it passed on a temporary basis by harping on fear (basic communist tactic) but now want it to be settled law. The news story quoted below tells more:
"The proposal that fell just short of 60 votes would have prevented federal law enforcement from obtaining internet browsing information or search history without seeking a warrant.
“Should law-abiding Americans have to worry about their government looking over their shoulders from the moment they wake up in the morning and turn on their computers to when they go to bed at night?” said Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon. “I believe the answer is no. But that’s exactly what the government has the power to do without our amendment.”"
When the whole knotted gun statue was allowed to stand on American soil, we slipped on that nefarious slope. President Donald Trump, on this one choice to sign or not to sign, will seal his place in history as America's saving Grace or, being a Trojan Horse and our Last Trump. It is that simple. Every senator who voted YES to this ammendment to prevent no probable cause searches is an American Hero. The rest undermine our freedom.

MITCH MCCONNEL JOINS BABIN'S EFFORT
Senator Mitch McConnel, a Conservative In Name Only joins in Congressman Brian Babin's effort to void our probable cause protections as American citizens. Babin's district 36 voters are apparently ok with Babin's communist effort (after all, the majority of Polk County voters have accepted and supported Lee Hon's efforts for years) but now Mitch McConnell is spearheading an effort that will set a precedent in law that NONE are safe from big brother's prying eyes. McConnell has put forth an AMMENDMENT to the Patriot Act renewal (itself an anti American concept) that will forever destroy probable cause protections. Is the so called Grand Ole Party just a Trojan Horse? Are the parties, as some have said, "Two wings of the same bird of Prey". With Babin's recent victory DESPITE his efforts on the TAPS act and McConnell's efforts here makes it seem like we are living in Troy. The so called aternative media is promoting the notion that "The scoundrel's are on the run" yet the main "Good Guy" adds this amdmendment to an already communistic law.
Any reader of The Sentinel knows that often when I bust up a crook in public service with the criminal justice system and expose the evidence, it is often evidence that proves probable cause violations on the part of the corrupt. There is a lot of hoopla about 2nd amendment but it is the open records laws and probable cause protections that keep tryanny at bay. To pass this amendment will turn up the crab pot flame another degree. Are we boiling yet?

FREEDOM UNDER ATTACK AGAIN
From Brian Babin attacking our probable cause protections to corrupt officials filing false and frivilous charges against those who oppose them politically, Polk County seems to be a refuge for those who hate our freedoms. Strike three for Lee Hon came down the pike last week as the DA files a third criminal complaint against The Sentinel for publishing the truth and proof documents. Strike one was filing 7 felony counts against me for publishing a public record marriage certificate that I paid a dollar for in the clerk's office and a copy of a ticket written to the man who gave me the ticket to publish. Strike Two was filing a felony stalking charge for daring to show up to a public political meeting of The Republican Club at a public restaurant, interviewing several and taking photos to use with the story I wrote. Strike Three is Hon filing a criminal complaint against me last week for me daring to publish a text message from his phone, a public record evidence document, PROVING he has a history of conspiring WITH OTHERS to file false charges for political purpose. Can we spell R.I.C.O.?
Apparently Hon thinks I need to go to prison for daring to publish the text message that PROVES he has conspired to file bogus charges for political purpose but that he should get a pass for his CONSTANT CRIMINAL BEHAVIOUR.

LEE HON CRIME SYNDICATE BEGINS TO CRUMBLE
Psalm 89:14 Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face.
This partial snip of a letter written to the 258th District Judge, The Honorable Travis Kitchens, by the newly appointed DA in Angelina County was penned and mailed in mid April of this year.
