Just wanted to address some of the points in your article:
 1) The Defendant, Tevinos Cook, was armed with a .32 revolver when he was shot leaving the store.  San Jacinto County Sheriff's Office deputies engaged him when he pointed the weapon at them. 
2) Tevinos Cook has been gainfully employed, but does have a conviction for Robbery in Louisiana in 2010.
3)  The defendant pled 'open' or without an agreed plea recommendation from the State.  During my closing arguments, I requested a sentence of not less than 10 years incarceration in TDCJ.  This was not a plea bargain, this was a sentencing hearing based upon the pre-sentence investigation completed by the probation department.
4) It is accurate that Mr. Cook has been on bond and has had no known issues.
5) It is accurate that Mr. Cook is facing 5-99 years if it is proven at a hearing before Judge Kitchens that he has willfully/knowingly violated his terms of deferred adjudication.
All of the following was included in the pre-sentence investigation report that is on file on Mr. Cook's case in cause # CR12778, available at the district clerk's office.
As far as the insinuation that I contacted Vanesa Brashiers to put this story out, that's not accurate.  No one from my office contacted Mrs. Brashiers regarding this case, as it is my practice to issue press releases with my name attached.

My apology,
I got some really bad info from what I thought was and that has always been a reiliable source.
Will make corrections


For Immediate Release
On Monday, March 20th, 2023, Gary Russell Motter, II of Cleveland, Texas was sentenced to 40 years incarceration in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, after being found guilty of two counts of Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child in the 258th District Court of San Jacinto County, Judge Lisa Michalk presiding.  Criminal District Attorney Todd Dillon served as lead prosecutor in this case.  In accordance with state law, Motter will not be eligible to parole until he has completed half of his sentence and he will be required to register as a sex offender for the remainder of his life.
In November of 2022, a jury found proof beyond a reasonable doubt that Motter repeatedly sexually assaulted his stepdaughter, a child younger than fourteen years old.  After three days of testimony, including investigators and deputies from the San Jacinto County Sheriff’s Office, counselors and forensic interviewers from Children’s Safe Harbor, in addition to the child victim, a jury unanimously convicted the Defendant.  The jury found that the sexual abuse occurred in the home of the victim near Cleveland, Texas on or about June of 2018.
During the punishment hearing, the court heard evidence regarding a pending rape charge the defendant committed while out on bond in Arkansas in 2021.  The court found the testimony of the victim from Arkansas “compelling”.  Testimony of the victim as well as her mother was provided to the court regarding the impact that the assault had on the life of the young victim.  Character evidence was also provided on behalf of the defendant by members of the defendant’s friends and family.
Criminal District Attorney Todd Dillon would like to thank the San Jacinto County Sheriff’s Office, as well as counselors, forensic interviewers and staff at the Children’s Safe Harbor for their hard work, care and persistence in this case.  A special note of gratitude is due to Amy McCorkle, previously Chief Investigator at the San Jacinto County District Attorney’s Office for her tenacious pursuit of justice over the course of 4 years in this case.  Investigator McCorkle is now employed by the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office where she continues to be a fierce advocate for justice for sexual abuse survivors.

The adult that assaulted a child at a 'lil dribblers' event in Shepherd several weeks ago has been arrested and bonded out for the charges against him.  

SHEPHERD 3/8/3034


Tommy Douglas, long time merchant and operator of TD's Grocery passed away yesterday rather unexpetedly.  A long time fixture at the corner store, he was always a connection point to the Shepherd community.  



Attempted robbery of a local business ended in death for the robber.     The owner stayed in the business overnight  according to sources.  

Jeffrey Gunter, a Coldspring youth was killed in the predawn hours.  According to former class mates of his, Jeffrey lost his father to cancer some months ago.    "He seemed to lose his way after that" one long time friend commented.    The funeral service will be held in the Cochran Funeral home in Onalaska, 2 pm Saturday March 18th.  There willbe a pot luck dinner at Pointblank Volunteer FD at 4 pm.  Covered dishes can be dropped off between 10:30 and 11:30 am.  



A second altercation at one of the events was the proverbial last straw for the ISD.  According to close sources, Shelia Richardson is blaming the ISD for the Richardson's failures that led to this end.  The kids are the ones losing out.  All Stars selected and no place to go.  

     In light of the circumstances, The Sentinel does call for a forensic audit of the 'LIL Dribblers" (not to be confused with the national organization, "Little Dribblers") financial records.  We want to know.

TUCKER LIES AS JOURNALISM D.I.E.S. (diversity, inclusion, equity syndrome)

All it takes is one is the admontion of old against lies destroying credibility.  /Tuckers recent release at the 3:44 minute mark lies through his teeth.  There is video footage of Ashlie Babbit being shot.  We have all seen the footage of her breaking thro the window and being shot.  

    Tucker says we can only 'speculate" as to what happened.

     Look at the definition of 'insurrection".  Compare that to what happened ,  

an act or instance of revolting against civil authority or an established government 

There is the big argument put forth by the intellectuals but wait.  What does revolt mean?

to renounce allegiance or subjection (as to a government)

   There was nothing in Jan 6th about renouncing allegience.  Jan 6 was about reminding and enforcing our government's allegoemce tp the. "We the people" doctrine.
Much like the T.E.A.Party rally before it.  

We can sum it up in one word.  FREEDOM.  


In order to accuse the Jan 6 protestors of insurrection, you are saying that the people are renouncing allegience to themselves and their freedom.  That didn;t happen.  When the leader stands and openly states that the democrat party has the best voter fraud operation in place, we the people have the right to say, lets look at the election.  It is the D.I.E. Party that says shut up and move on when it comes to Hunter's laptop to election integrity..  It is the D.I.E. party that is whittling on our freedoms, whittling on our children and whittling on the very future of our great nation.  



Florida Republican puts forth bill to 'license' bloggers that write about political candidates in his state.  How do the damn communists sneak thru the primary and general election to be elected to law making rolls?  This crap stinks of the same efforts of former ADA Tommy Coleman who wanted to license all journalists and require them to gain state approval and license in order to publish.  NOT

   If the Auditor movement doesn't accomplish anything else, I hope it sticks this notion up the where the sun don't shine of these rino commies.

Polk County Go Getters

The Go Getters have just finished another impressive undefeated basketball season with Polunsky Point Guards being the last opponent that stood in their way. Now they head to the Polk County Special Olympics Region 6 Tournament on March 11th at the Livingston JR High to see how they fair against an opposition that has the same special talents. Admission is free. The season started off with an impressive victory against The Bull Shak, they then went on to decimate the Pedigo Furniture Lifters. Next the Go Getters dominated the LISD Buddies, then an impressive win over the Livingston VFD. They put on a clinic against HEB next and taught the Chick-Fil-A Cow about buckets the following game. The Sweat Shop team looked good in warm-ups but again Go Getters triumphed. In one of the most anticipated games of the season Texans EMS just couldn't put up the numbers they needed to defeat their rivals and despite Wal-Mart fielding two "Super" players in their matchup they couldn't pull out a win either. Coach Marty Drake who has been coaching the Go Getters since 2001 and started hosting the Region 6 Tournament the following year would like to invite everyone to the tournament March 11th at 9am. Again it will be held at the Livingston JR High. It will be the final time before next season to see the Go Getters in action, come out and show your support.

UPDATE 3/2/2023

F.E.R.P.A. (Federal Educational Records Protection Act) laws were utilized to examine school reocrds related to the late coming allegations of bullying leveled against the child who was injured by a 3oo man at the lil dribblers game last week.  By examining the school records, it was determined that there has NEVER been a complaint filed on either of the boys accused of bullying by any student, teacher, parent or administrator in the entire time either boy has been in the Shepherd ISD.  That is all of their young lives.  Now the day AFTER the felonious assault by a 300 lb punk adult against the child, his wife did come to the school and attempt to file a complaint against the injured child for bullying.   PALEEESE.  Can you be any more shallow and self serving Ms. Wyatt?  Or did you marry your baby daddy?  

    The Shepherd ISD did not accept the late and self serving complaint.  Instead they relied on the facts of record in their files.  ;





SHEPHERD YOUTH LEAGUE Baseball and softballl has NO DIRECT ASSOCIATION with the basketball program administrated by Daryl and Ms. Richardson

With a different spelling of 'lil dribblers' instead of the trademarked,  "Little Dribblers", Daryl Richardson has attempted to skirt around the trademark laws and capitalize on a name with a nationwide reputation.

UPDATE 2/28/2023

Shepherd is not in any way associated with the national 'Little Dribblers"  organization nor is there any listing for a non profit for the Shepherd Little Dribblers with the Secretary of State.    The text at left is from The President of the national organization in a direct response to a Sentinel question.  They further added that Shepherd has NEVER been associatedwith the ACTUAL 'Little Dribblers' organization.  

   When we consider all the monies that have been collected for participation in the league from sign up fees to door charge to concession stand cash flow and to find out that the local adminisstration and every one from ISD officials to coaches and players all calling it 'Little Dribblers', maybe a forensic audit is in order.

SHEPHERD 2/22/2023


TORIAN (sp?) WYATT, a near 30 year old man  body slammed a 12 year old boy on the Shepherd ISD campus yesterday at a 'LSYBL event that was using ISD facilities.  

There was no mistaken identity as all involved knew very well who each other were.   Another perspective and claimed eye witness states Torian ran into the child full tilt knocking him forcefully to the ground but not picking up and throwing him down from an elevation.  The broken bones are no less broken.     


Wyatt belted the mother in the back of her head with his fists according to witnesses.  

      Wyatt has, according to Sentinel Sources, been banned from other local youth activities and their facilities for his bad behavior in the past.   "Mr Wyatt will be banned" is the only firm committment we could get after interviewing ISD and law enforcement officials.  

    The SYBL is a non profit program over seen by Darryl Richardson that like many other community activites, uses the ISD property for practice and games.  There is no formal contract according to one official source when another slonger serving source ays there is .   The source further states that the agreement requiresDYBL to provide security.   

    Both county and state police showed up on the scene when called.  No arrests were made.  Both the women claiming the other threw the first punch.  Video evidence has been retrieved along with x-ray and medical proof of the injury.   

    It is reported that, Wyatt zeroed in on the other boy accused of bullying his son (also 12) and chased him into the parking lot.  

   That child (also 12) was able to hide in back of a pick up according to others. 

   Shelia Richardson, wife of the little dribblers CFO and self named administrator with him posted a public apology on behalf of the Youth Leage for the 'event' and at the same time, aknowledged the SYBL responsibility to provide security.  




This is a story The Sentinel first brought out as a failure of Hon's tenure because it was right under his nose for years.  Hon's hirling Lima mocked The Sentinel on FB about that story denying there was any truth to it.   BOOM the fed dropped the hammer.  Then add to that the fact that a local government entitiy owned and operated the closest airport with no tower or customs operation.  Just how blind is Justice?   



Withinweeks of The Sentinel calling for a Amilitary boot in the cartel's ass", the Patriot Militias have taken action.  Wray and Garland will call these guys, 'Militia Violent Extremists" or MVR for short.  Who knows, one of the guys may have a Betsy Ross flag patch.  

    The last militia leader who took the same actions ended up in federal prison on a fire arms charge.  Larry Hopkins, aka Johnny Horton Jr was defending the US border in his home state of New Mexico and was targeted for criminal charges.  



Recently obtained public documents show that nearly two dozen firearms, 3,000 rounds of ammunition, sights/scopes, and several other firearm accessories along with other miscellaneous items all totaling almost $100,000 where stolen from a home/business in Conroe. One of the perpetrators was shot and is still in critical condition with three gunshot wounds. Initial sources said it was an officer involved shooting (Montgomery County officials would still not confirm or deny these allegations yesterday afternoon) and that is the story we ran with. Now we are being told by an anonymous source that the homeowner, a disabled man, ended up "shooting that fellow over there". This all happened February 13 around 7 am right off 105. The rest of the perpetrators made off with the loot. We have other information request regarding this story headed to the OAG for an opinion on it's release. The family of the suspect are hoping to be able to visit their loved one soon but for right now don't even know where he is at. The mother has now dropped out of communication after saying she is scared for her life and ready to do what it takes to see her son.

Locomotives are still standing but many cars have derailed adjacent to Hiway 59

There was a single fatality of a truck driver that was on the tracks with his rig.  


After reviewing my open records request, I realize that I asked for suspension or discipline documents only on Sparta and got the email at left in reply.  I know my source is good and solid so I rephrased my request just looking for, "administrative hold" information.   That is the process when a commissioned peace officer is under investigation.  Lets see what TCOLE says in a few days.

   Besides, I hear Sparta is really need in Pct 3 as Sam Houston comes out of the campaign closet and is openly running for sheriff now.  We should see the sheriff signs pop up soon to replace or compliment the '2024' signs he put up illegally early. 



Comments and phone calls indicate Sparta is still acting in the capacity of a Texas Commissioned peace officer.

We published based on the written statement of an offiicial source but The Sentinel has requested the actual TCOLE records.  




Pct 3 Constable, Sam Houston, flatly refused to do anything to his 'captain' dog catcher Sparta after several arrests and still does refuse but TCOLE stepped up and took action.   TCOLE recently put an 'administrative hold' onSparta's Texas Commission On Law Enforcement license behind Sparta's recent arrests.  

    The Pct 3 Constable, Sam Houston has kept Sparta on as captain dog catcher and Sparta is still patrolling but not wearing a side arm according to sources that have seen him.  Apparently Sam I am is more loyal to his captain brown nose than he is to the people of San Jacinto County.  But then, any who have read the text mesages Houston sent to a beautiful young woman threatening her with losing her kids if she didn't meet up with him know that Sam Houston has issues of his own.  

HUNTSVILLE 1/27/2023


Former Trinity Co Deputy, Chris Lima was busted for 'conspiring' to deal drugs in uniform and in one of Woody Wallace's patrol vehicles and given a slap on the wrist, 'deferred adjudication probation for 6 months.  Lima's recent arrest in Onalaska for theft violated that deferred adjudication and Sentinel Sources claim that Lima's charges have been 'adjudicated' by the Walker County Court.  At time of publication, we have not been able to get any answer from the DA or the court as to the current status of the case.

UPDATE 1/23/2023


Compelling evidence that SJCCAD chief appraiser, Sherri Schell used several of ther field appraisers on county time to physically  move one of her employees belongings from one home to another over a two day period just adds to the list of illegal and unethical actions she has taken to the detriment of the SJC tax payers.  


COLDSPRING 1/20/2023


In a blatant violation of the open records laws, the SJC CAD board attorney, Joe Longoria of the Perdue, Brandon, Fielder, Collins and Mott law firm has witheld legally requested records just because those payroll records will prove yet another penal code violation of the CAD paying an employee that was not at work.  

     An open records request submitted sept 29th and battled at the OAG was won by The Sentinel and the law firm was ordered to surrender the records yet those payroll records were with held from the package received today at The Sentinel offices.  

    In our 30 plus years, we have learned that the corrupt tend to with hold records that will prove their crimes.

   At this point, not only do we continue to call for the firing of the corrupt Chief Apprasier, Sherri Schell, we call for the firing of the attorney, Joe Longoria if he has no more respect for the laws of the Great State of Texas than this.  He may think he is protecting his client but fails to recognize that he works for the citizens of San Jacinto County, not the board.

reader submitted photo - thankyou


When the suspect is cuffed, the fight is over"

sounds good but not always the case.  Between head butting, kneeing and kicking or just knockin someone over, the fight is not always over but the series of photos that were submitted along with this one, show the suspect getting in the car and no moves toward the officer.  We don't know this suspects name but allegations against officer Heeth of using unnecessary force and filing 'complaint retaliation' charges on another woman seem much more plausible especially after vetting the woman charged.




An officer with the Onalaska PD failed to appear for hearing today based on personal reasons after the last reset was for  no prosecutor prepared to make the case.  TAMMY HEETH filed felony criminal charges on a woman shortly after that parent filed a written complaint with the elementary school for the officers aggressive actions. during car rider line issues.  That was about two years ago.


  In a case of blatant hypocricy, The officer making the felony allegations was allowed to do her own investigation and and write her own police report for the school official to sign.  

    Before the altercation that the felony charges resulted from, The defendant claims that when her and officer Heeth met in the Brookshire Bros aisles, Heeth rammed her cart into Lambert and confronted her about the complaint causing a scene in the store.

     Heeth filed felony charges based on the claims that Lambert hit her with her car while while doing the car drop off routine.  Lambert claims the contact was intentional on Heeth's part and culminating with Heeth trying to pull her out of her car by the hair.

    In an unrelated incident pictured at left, Heeth can be seen pepperspraying a handcuffed suspect right in the eyes.

An 18 year old female college student was murdered in San Jacinto County this morning.  Details are being witheld until the parents are notified.

   According to Sentinel sources, the youngster attended A&M.

Rumors are swirling but there was definately a death.  According to offiical sources, The Rangers have been notified and are on their way to the scene to take part in the investigation.  


   More information has come forward but no offiical press release.  We will wait for that statement before any further details are published.   As of four am this morning, investigators were still on the scene.

Old accusations come home to roost
Earl David Worden, the 'News Now Houston" auditor guru  of the movement was sentenced to 20 years in prison after a jury trial in Harris County on charges from old accusations.  
Worden was doing his thing anonymously and raking in the dough until he decided to do a hit piece on SJC.  The Sentinel investigated his identity, revealed his identity on his youtube channel and took him to task for the lies he had perpetrated against our community.
    In that process, The Sentinel discovered that Worden was convicted and served time for aggravated sexual assault using a gun.  We also proved that his sex offender registry address and the address he was living at were different.   Nothing was done.
    Worden went on to inspire many in the field of 1st Amendment 'audting'  Any channel that goes by the moniker, "News Now ___________"   is a Worden inspired channel.  There is no doubt that the 'news now' organization has grown nationwide and many have based their style on Worden's approach.  Worden coined the phrase, "gathering content for a story" and the ubiquitious, "good citizen" given as a name.  Worden has proven to be anything but however no one can deny the effect the overall auditor movement has had on bringing awareness of our constitutional rights and the limits of the long arm of the law.  







Former President Donald Trump's headlines this morning would, at first glance lead one to believe he is up to his old tricks.

    I would be speaking of the time we lanblasted him for his infamous red flag comment, "Take the guns first and  then give them their day in court." 

   After that, Trump's effort to put forth the notion he and only he would be able to decide who was a journalist and who wasn't.  bombed like a lead balloon.  There has been an explosion of citizen journalists spring up just to prove him wrong on that one.

I just never did buy the story that Trump was 'silenced' by social media when all he did is build something that someone else could 'pull the plug' on.  Mistake number one. Such an elementary mistake makes me wonder if it was planned.    For a mere $19.99 a month he could have all the space he needed to get his message out.  If he owned his own site, who is going to pull the plug?  

    What history will prove is that Donald Trump did what he says he did.  He is the best president we have had in my lifetime  Is he king?  Hell no.  The McCloud blood running in his veins screams, "No King but Jesus"Even George Washington knew that so quit trying.

    The monarchy that was attempted to be impose themselves on our fledgling nation was quoted in an article some few years before her deatth saying she was willing to take the USA back under the monarchy since "it hasn't turned out well".    

  Now Charles is in charge.   

     The USA has faced enemies before and are now.  Donald Trump was a democrat before he was a republican.  They say, scratch a liberal  and find a facist.  I say scratch a politician and find a narcicist.  We need a cistoscopy.  Can Trump overcome his trumpocentristic (eg0) tendancies for a successful run?

AUSTIN UPDATE 10/27/2022


The Sentinel has been calling for McCraws resignation since long before the Uvalde massacre just because he is dishonest and a slacker.  McCraw's abject failure to address the criminal activity of aoon to be FORMER da Hon was enough to prove that McCraw is also a man of no integrity.  Thank God the St Louis police did not follow Texas' lead at their recent school shooting and instead charged right in and killed the perpetrator.  



A CNN exclusive report confirms Sentinel proclamation and names DPS Capt Joel Betancort as officer giving stand by order to DPS at the Uvalde massacre.  His orders, it is reported to The Sentinel, came straight from the D.O.S. (Dept of Officer Safety)  

   Parents of victims join Sentinel long time call for McCraw's resignation.  A call we made BEFORE the massacre where McCraws training efforts took a toll.

     Truth demands scrutiny and I want to know if McCraw or any of his leadership was in communication with gun control agenda activists.  (Democrats) There is no other reason for the failure other than waiting for the body count to be as high as possible.


TEXAS  10/12/2022


When you watch the video and plainly see DPS guys with white hats and white shirts standing around while kids are dying, there is NO OTHER explanation than they had received or were themselves giving a 

STAND DOWN' Order.  

   Just consider the evidence.   "VIDEO"

When the DPS Director, Steve McCraw has long demonstrated his ex FBIphilosephy of, "if you don't do nothing, you can't get in trouble for nothing' that he has incorporated into his long time leadership of a once highly respected law enforcement agency, it is no surprise what he has done to decimate that reputation.  Just look at what the leadership that trained him has done to the FBI.      It wasn't cowardice, that led to the death of all those babies, it was tke gun control agenda.  It is that simple.

   The shooter was long time on LEO radar.  Every concept of red flag or gun control or gun safety or gun whatever philosephy was ignored or violated by the very people that put it all forth to enable him to do the deed they needed done for the overall gun control agenda.  It almost worked.



Once again, Sam Houston's unethical campaign practices puts him in a bid light as a cheater and schemer.  If he and Trinity Co Sheriff, Woody Wallace stopped by anywhere near as many places in uniform (wearing badge and gun) telling folks they need to vote for the corrupt, Lee Hon as I got complaints about, can you just imagine what a political advantage, if not forced to resign, it will be able to 'drop by' still wearing a badge and a gun telling you that you should vote for him?  Thus the purpose of the automatic resignation law for just such an event.  






Pct 3 constable, "Makes himself a Candidate" 


As one of his first campaign efforts going for the county wide LEO job of SJC, former constable Sam Houston did put forth an idea for a plan in Commissioners Court this morning to establish a permitting system for people to own certain animals HERE.   Go to 1 hr :25 minute mark for beginning.  If the plan were put in place and he was elected sheriff, it would be just in time to keep his dog catchin, kid assaulting, wife beating buddie busy coming out to everyones house checking their permits for pets.  Judge Faulkner shuts down the effort Houston made to go around existing law to implement this permit plan   at 1hr 30 min mark, Commisisoner Marrs lays it out plain.  

CROOKED SAM HOUSTON SIGN readers submitted thankyou International 'no way' symbol added for clarity

Various signs around San Jacinto county have been reported to The Sentinel.  Signs beyond the PCT 3 area that Houston resides in.  This sign is in Pct Four and Houston has made himself a candidate in a county wide race.

     When someone is on your clock (we will call him 'sam's high ham' for the time being) goes around looking for a and finding the campaign manager of a possible future opponent as sheriff, You have made yourself a candidate.  When your agent (sam's high ham, rubuffs that campaign manager to warn him against trying to run his candidate against sam I am, you have made yourself a candidate.  

   We all remember your penchant for illegal campaign signs over the years constable.  We remember the state Hwy Dept and then the Forest Service having to force you to remove your illegal signs because other people couldn't put theirs there..  You have repeatedly sought unfair advantage over opponents in otherways too just like you are with this crooked stunt.  

The Sentinel calls for the signs to be removed or for you to resign as the law requires.


 pct 3 constable resigns

By telling people he was running for Sheriff of San Jacinto County, former Constable Sam Houston has officially resigned his position as Constable of Pct 3, SJC according to The Constitution of this Great State.  Several witnesses have confirmed that Sam Houston has told them personally that he is going to run for Sheriff of SJC and his agent is campaigning for him in the 2024 election and Houston is already putting up political signs as reported by many Stentinel readers.

USA 10/9/2022


Long time Sentinel readers will remember the article I did way back when the 'rona' started spreading like wild fire about Fauci and 'Gain of function'.  My article was at least 6 months before the phrase, 'gain of function' became a household saying.  My article was based on two peer reviewed medical journal articles Fauci wrote in the late 70's about his involvement with the HIV virus and its 'gain of function' to the point that it gained the ability to enter a human cell.  In the article, we pointed out that the same mechinism that attached to the HIV to allow it to enter the human cell was the same mechinism that through 'gain of function', now allows the roana to enter a human cell.

   Almost immediatly, the two medical journal articles were scrubbed from the internet.  

     Having been heavily ridiculed for refusing to take the rona vaccine, I feel vindicated now.  Much like all the evidence of voter fraud that is coming forward and will one day prove that we as a nation did NOT vote for communism.  

    The Sentinel has outed many corrupt people over the years.  I challenge any reader to point out one that I was wrong about.  

     Biden is the greatest danger to our nation.  Fauci is right there with him.  I have been warning about both for some time.  

     As for the southern border, I propose that anyone caught trafficking fentanyl in candy form be executed on the spot.  Any lawmakers bold enough to put that legislation forward?



It is past time for the US Military to put a boot in the a$$ of the mexican cartels.  Promoting the invasion of America is bad enough even though Joe Biden invited them but this BS of sending poison candy into the coutry right as halloween, the lefts high holy day, is beyond the pale.


It is time for a military response to a military assault against our nation.  Too bad so sad that Joe Biden has made himself a target in his all out effort to sell us out to our enemies.


Biden has sold most of our STRATEGIC petroleum reserve, opens the gates for our enemies and sold us down the river.  Bidens need to be tried for treason and hung at sunrise when convicted.  It is that simple.  If the DOJ and military leaders cannot see thier way clear to protect our nation from these domestic enemies, they need to be thrown off as well.

COLDSPRING 8/17/2022


Brandi Denea Wright was the principal of a local Christian Academy in Coldspring.  I say 'WAS' because she and some family and friends recently loaded up most all of the school desks, tables, supplies and personal files of all of the minor students past and present that were in the posession of that church and its long standing  Christian school ministry.  This group then took off with them just days before the scheduled opening of the school for the coming school year.

     As of this morning, a trailer load of the school's supplies could be seen parked under Brandi's carport on Stewart  Street just outside Coldspring.  

    According to multiple sources, including Brandi Wright, the pastor did call the law when he and his wife found Brandi and her gang in the church taking the supplies.  In the few minutes it took the law to respond, The Brandi gang had left the church property and taken  the supplies they had already loaded, out to her house where the law confronted her on behalf of the pastor.  

    According to official law enforcement sources and Brandi Denea Wright herself, she produced a document showing her name listed as the principal administrator and  'owner' of the Christian Academy as a 501c3 non profit organization.

    Based on that presentaion at the scene, Brandi Denea Wright nor any of her moving gang were arrested or charged at that time. Several folks connected with the church and in the community expressed some anger at that but from law enforcement point of view, two factors were at play.  Brandi displayed a document that would indicate that there was no probable cause to arrest her.   Combine that with the legal doctine of, "Ecclesiastical Abstension" that keeps the state's nose out of church matters and church discipline, The Sentinel counts us fortrunate to have sheriff deputies and a DA who guard our probable cause protections and 1st amendment rights and are careful not to overstep.  It was quite an unusual situation to say the least and time to investigate is on the law's side.

    The Sentinel did call and interview Ms. Brandi Denea Wright about the incident.  She was quite willing to talk and we covered a lot of ground.  

    "I organized that school from the beginning and I own it", Brandi Denea Wright claimed. "I got all but about 25 percent of my stuff and I am going back to get the rest of it."

   When I questioned her about the incorportation papers she assured The Sentinel that she does indeed have the incorporation papers showing her as the owner of the local Christian academy.  The Sentinel responded to her that our only  goal was to get to the truth and asked her if she was willing to provide us with that document so we could, "put the matter to rest".   "I am willing", Brandi Denea Wright claimed while at the same time questioning what matter needed to be put to rest?  When I explained that it was a rather unconventional situtation and my readers would want to know the truth, Brandi retreated to "My Attorney" will have to ok it for me to give you the document."

   My argument was that if she indeed had legitimate non profit incorporation papers that I would be able to get them as a public record but it would be quicker if she would just email them to me because I was already writing the story and wanted to be accurate.  She mentioned her attorney again so I asked the attorney's name so I could follow up with her attorney directly and Brandi refused to disclose that information.


    As we spoke, we covered several more topics.  As is a Sentinel tactic for raising boys in to men and when interviewing someone who has been alleged to have violated their public trust, I asked several questions that I already knew the answer to just to see if she would lie to me.

    One of those questions was, "Are you a faithful member of the church and attend the services regularly?  "Yes" was her immediate reply but she quickly added, 'well not as much lately".   Then I asked her if she was in charge of the bank account for the Academy and did she deplete it?"  Brandi answered that she was only one of two signers and did not control the bank account for the Academy.  

    Then, taking her at her word that she was the 'owner' of the business, I asked what kind of  arrangement did she have with the church to conduct her business on their property?

    "Oh i have a lease but it isnt written, it is just a verbal agreement".

   The Texas Statute of Frauds requires that any lease over a year be in writing to be enforcable in court.

    From her conversation we can summarize that Brandi Wright claims she owns the Academy as her own business and has for years.  She claims she operated said business within the church premises with a lease but did not have control of her Academy bank account (The church does) and did not have an enforcable written lease. 

   After an intense search by my self and another more able internet sleuth, we determined that there was no non profit corporation filed in Brandi Wright's name for the Christian Academy or any other business with the State Comptroller of public accounts.

   We also searched for private corporations under either name in Texas, Deleware and Nevada and were not able to locate one.  By this time, my red flags were flying high and I sent Brandi Wright the following Text and she sent the adjoining reply:

<NATIONAL NEWS 9/22/2022


Cardiac arrest has been the leading cause for concern among the pilots in America, both military and civilian.  A military whistleblower has raised concerns that the forced vaccinations have resulted in a massive increase in 'drop dead' incidents among the young pilots in the military.   Southwest Airlines has shown a sharp increase in pilot 'drop dead' deaths since mandating the vaccine.  Fortunatly Texas law stopped the Dallas based Southwest Airlines policy in its tracks and not all of their pilots were forced to take the controversial jab.  

    Much as the safety precaution that exists on flights now that one pilot has the chicken and the other has the roast beef, the FAA needs to mandate that all flights have no more than one pilot with the jab and one pilot without the jab to insure passenger safety.

UPDATE 9/23/2022


An all out effort to purge the FBI of any true patriots is moving forward full speed ahead.  How fitting that the FBI agent tasked with the plot is named 'Frederico", a long line of mafioso history goes with the name.  The whistleblower firing is illegal and anti American yet proceeds with Garland's blessing and directive to do just that.  Article HERE.


WASHINGTON 9/22/2022


From flooding our country with enemy combatants to attacking patriots at every turn, the DOJ has declared war on America's liberty and freedom.  The article linked HERE and to the headline illustrates the lastest enemy agression against our rights as citizens.

The Sentinel article below illustrates how the practice has metastasized from the local level to national headlines.  It is always the bootlickers that forment the spread of the cancer that attacks liberty and freedom.  When a man on the street with a camera evokes the hostile wrath of the local authorities to the point they blatantly violate the very constitution they swore an oath to uphold and defend, the fix is in.  You can spot the bootlikers that think all men should just 'comply' because they hide their disdain for liberty behind an American flag desecrated with a thin blue line and often utter, "stop resisting'.   We as a people support law and order but it has to be right.  We are colorblind.  We back the Constitution over any group.

RESISTING tyranny is as American as Apple Pie.  Our greatest weapon to insure the continuation of freedom and liberty in America and the world is only the size of a mustard seed but all powerful if you are not afraid to use it.  know, 'WE SHALL OVERCOME'.






Two of America's most important callings on a persons life are punished when it comes to their retirement;.  I am speaking about TEACHERS and COPS.

No one goes into either profession with an expectation of getting rich.  They put in their thirty years and then get punished.  They pay into both and only get to collect on one., One Congressman is trying to do something about it.






'If you don't do nothing, you can't get in trouble for nothing"

Well before the Uvalde Massacre, The Sentinel called for the resignation of Steven McCraw, DPS Director (retired FBI) for bringing that lame FBI 'doctrine' to the Texas DPS with him.  Our call for McCraw's resignation was based on the ABJECT FAILURE of DPS to arrest or charge Lee Hon or Tommy Coleman for the crimes they committed under the color of office for political purpose.  Even with the Evidence tied up with a bow and delivered by multiple people INCLUDING the person who wrote the complaint evoking the response letter at left, nothing was ever done.  The sad state is, the same evidence was delivered to the FBI agents in Lufkin too with the same non response.  The attached letter is in response to a complaint lodged by a retired federal agent and submitted to the "Office of Professional Responsibility" (OPR) within the FBI's Office of Inspector General.  You can see for yourself and read between the lines.  

   Brings to mind the old song Lyric, "Nothing from nothing leaves nothing" done, going to be done or even considered being done.

    In fact, worse than nothing being done, from where I sit, it appears that Merrick Garland has ADOPTED lee hon's methonds and put them on national display.

    Recently, an ARTICLE APPEARED HERE quoting DPS Director, Steven McCraw saying that if it was shown any of his troopers had any culpability in the Uvalde Massacre, that he would resign.  DUH.  4 tooperes were on site for an hour and did not follow training.  The Sentinel called you out IMMEDIATLY for laying blame on the ISD resource officer  Lee Hon proved that rotten law enforcement trickles down from the top.  I say trickle because 95 percent are top notch but the few rotten spoil the barrel for the rest.

   If Greg Abbott loses this election to a pinko commie gun grabbing dress wearing freak, it won't be because you didn't resign.  It will be because Gov Abbot did not fire you the day after the Uvalde Massacre.

    Governor Abbot.  Fire McCraw and learn to stand up for Father's rights in the Great State of TExas if you expect us to support you.  For the state to recognize the place of the father in the home is our only hope.  It is that simple.

SHEPHERD 8/31/2022


A noticable increase in the ratings have come to pass since the state of Texas  has taken over the administration of the Shepherd ISD.  Not only are there improvements in the individual campus ratings, the overall rating is greatly improved.  Some were rated 'F' when the Texas Education Agency stepped in.

    There is no firm time line when the process of transitioning back to local elected school board control will be achieved.  According toSupt.. Hewitt, keeping help in a small poor rural district where a majority of the staff must drive in is always a difficult prospect.  Much like our Sheriff Dept gets to train a lot of deputies that find higher paying jobs in larger towns and richer couties once they get some experience, the same problem exists within a small ISD.




POLK CO 8/29/2022


The 258th court was the venue of the arraignment for Brandon White today and the Adminiistrative Judge for region 2, The Honorable Robert Hill Trapp presided over the hearing this morning.  Bradon White did plead Not Guilty and tentative pretrial and trial dates were set.  None of the other auditors arrested have been notified to appear for hearing.

In this first text, I am asking for a copy of a text conversation Brandi claims she had with the pastor weeks before taking the school supplies and furniture letting him know it would be a "peaceful transition" and full of joy.  I was asking for those texts when I signed it 'Steve, Sentinel Alert'.  Just below that is my next message to her.

So Brandi's reply accused me of being dishonest.  First she put words in my mouth that I never said and then called me a liar.   hmmmmm.  I thought she said she did her research.  Just another lie? I can't think of a single person holding the public trust that I EVER  went after that called me a liar whom it worked out well for.   I don't see it working out well for you Brandi.  Ask  former neighbor, Lou Rogers, step daddy Jesse Newman, Lee Hon, Royce Wells etc.

TO BE CLEAR I never said that I was "unbiased."  What I said is that my only interest is getting at the truth of the matter and wherever that led would be the story I would write.

    Any Sentinel Reader KNOWS that without doubt that I have an EXTREME BIAS against liars and theives and any corrupt who violate their public trust.  

Some definitions of 'bias: 1) diagonally to the grain (that is me for sure)

 2) an inclination of temperament or outlookespecially a personal and sometimes unreasoned judgment.  Can't argue with that one either.  I do take it personal when a public servant or person who holds the public trust violates that trust and then I am hard to argue with or, 'unreasoned' and difficult to disuade from my objective.  

So Brandi, please quit lying on me.  You have enough troubles coming at you.  Have you read the  Code of Federal Regulations regarding school records INCLUDING private school records?   More on that later.


You will not convince anyone that I EVER claimed to be unbiased.  You will never convince anyone that I am unbiased.  My Bias has ALWAYS been and will remain to be the driving force of The Sentinel effort.  

NOW move forward to my conversation with your attorney.  My effort to get a copy of any document showing your ownership of the Christian Academy were met with, "I have it but won't provide you anything and violate the Attorney/Client privilege".  "But Brandi said I could have it as long as you said ok and now you are saying I can't have it unless Brandi says ok?"

    Sounding kind of fishy to me by this time since an extensive search of the state comptroller site proved that the Church has their non profit status in perfect order and good standing.  There was nothing for the Academy other than it being long documented as a ministry of the established church whose non profit paperwork is in good order and good standing.  I just can't even imagine that the tax consultant for the church would let them risk their non profit status just to collect a little bit of rent under the table from a privately owned school renting some rooms from them in which to conduct business.  I just don't believe you Brandi.  In fact, I will say it plain. YOU ARE A LIAR!!!!

     Add to that, we could not find a private corporation for brandi either, my ole corruption finding nose is twitching up a storm.


You know Brandi, We serve an awesome God.  What you meant for harm, God has used for good.  My sources tell me a big tractor trailer rig full of brand new donated furniture showed up at the Christian Academy yesterday and that the congregation has circled the wagons to open the Christian Academy on time.   My sources say your big plans to collaborate with another church fell flat when they got wind of your nefarious methods and intentions. So here you are stuck with a bunch of stuff that doesn't belong to you and no place to go. (HIDE)

    I would bet money that there is not a private property owner anywhere in the area that will trust you to lease a facility to you for 'your school'  after this story goes public and gets picked up on FB.  AND . . . . . you are out of a job in Christian Education.

     I put in a call to A.C.E that provides the educational materials for the Christian Academy (that is still going to open on time DESPITE your satanic efforts) and I don't believe A.C.E. will ever do business with you and your school again.    Just saying.  

    I will close with this.  If you (or your newbie attorney) can not produce a legitimate incorporation document soon and very soon, this community will DEMAND you face criminal charges.  How you sleeping lately?  

   Oh and if your newbie attorney that just graduated law school last year and whose duties with, Sullins Johnston Rohrbach & Magers are listed as 'research' wants to sue me for saying mean unflattering stuff, my address is in the left column.  

    Just keep one fact in mind, you and your newbie attorney.  A civil jury can ORDER a criminal investigation.

Check the CAD website.
Karl keller is the ex husband of Kellie Reid. They removed the Keller from her name weeks ago from the staff section. If you look at the human resources section you will see the name. Karl is in a position to act as Chief in sherris absence. He and Kellie have children together, all living. See state code 573.024



You are correct in your assertion regarding the recent hiring of Karl Keller and his ex wife (baby momma)also being an employee,  I have an official email from Mr. Keller proclaiming himself to be the asst chief appraiser for SJC CAD.  I had not broken that part of the story waiting on some other open records that The Sentinel is seeking.  Nepotism violations are one of Sherri Schell's strong suits.    We have a snip of the CAD web page with the 'Keller' still included in the name, 'Kellie Keller Reid"  before the edit you reference was made.  Publisher   PS  Sherri Schell is CORRUPT

WASH D.C. 8/13/2022


who's the PPP of them all?

Partisan Political Propagandist is the only term that fits the Lenny and Squiggy of the FBI now despite their weak protestations.  If the "Boy that cried wolf" analogy ever fit a situation, this is it.  Merrick Garland and Christopher Wray need to take a good long look in the mirror if they want to know who is undermining the reputation and integrity of the FBI. You have cried 'wolf' on President Trump so many times that have PROVEN FALSE that even if you could produce evidence of your accusations now, NO ONE IS GOING TO BELIEVE YOU.  Talk about shooting your own self in the foot.   The sad commentary is that the wolf really is at the door AND IT IS YOU!!!!

   When you guys want to point a finger at the nut job who attacked an FBI location recently blaming conservatives for his criminal acts, there are three fingers pointing back at yourselves for pushing him past his limit.  Remember, it is YOU TWO that have lost Hunter Biden's lap top and the evidence against the Biden crime family it contains.  It is you PPPs that turn a blind eye to actual democrat crimes and make up crimes against conservatives.

    I know a wonderful youngster working full time and paying their own way through college who is studying Criminal Justice.  This youngster's dream and driving ambition is to join the FBI when they graduate.  Please don't destroy their dreams Merrick.  


    Frederick Douglas, a black patriot, said it best when he noted that we have the ballot box, the jury box and when those are violated, the cartridge box.  

    You PPP's have turned a blind eye to the corruption of the ballot box.  You are yourself corrupting the Jury Box and are trying your best to take away our cartridge boxes because you know that the patriots in America, black and white, are not going to let you turn our Representative Republic into a mob rule democracy.  Anyone who has bought into the leftist propaganda that the USA is a democracy is part of the problem.  THAT INCLUDES FOX NEWS!!!!!!!

DPS Director, SteveMcCraw's abject failure to discipline a rogue ranger is coming back to bite him in the butt much like letting Ron Duff off the hook when he violated the ethics and destroyed the reputation of the Texas Rangers in East Texas.  Merrick Garland had to learn those tactics somewhere.

    The Sentinel sounded the alarm about Hon way back in 2015.  It took seven years for the voters to hear me.   We have been sounding the alarm about Clendenon for several years and on Janet Casels for over a year.  "Can you hear me now?"   Casels has proven that she is willing to file bogus charges on and imprison an innocent man for daring to expose her crimes in print (East Texas Reporter)  yet let corrupt elected officials go scot free even with proof documents handed to her.  

      Are 'we the people' dumbasses?  Are we afraid?  Are we just as corrupt as long as we are in the clique with the powerful?  

     How are we going to save the nation if we can't even save our county?  Angelina, you have to stand up against this kind of corruption or sit down and shut the hell up.  It is an uphill battle because the Lufkin Daily News is in bed with the corrupt politicians much like our Polk County Enterprise is in Polk County.  I don't know of a Rosemary Covalt or a Roy Grant in Angelina county that will dare to stand up to the likes of Clendennon.  You guys sure don't have a Sentinel Alert nor are any of you willing to contribute to our effort so we can expand up there so you guys may as well bend over for them and then sit down and shut up.


On August, 6, 2022 at 6:50 PM, Walker County Sheriffs Office was dispatched to a burglary of a residence on

Ted Cruz called out a paranoid FBI over the newest clamour over any patriots that dare to display any symbol of past victories over tryanny in the history of our great nation.   Labeling us Militia Violent Extremest, anyone who embraces the past victories in the fight for freedom against tyranny is now an MVE.  What a crock and the FBI better figure out who they work for and what their mission is.   I guess the Liberty Bell Icon that has long graced The Sentinel pages lands me in good company.  




A revealing and plain language ARTICLE POSTED HERE lays out the chronic problem that plagues the FBI on a national level.  That same article vindicates The Sentinel's protestations of corruption in East Texas.  Lenny and Squiggy are the 'affectionate terms applied to the agents in Lufkin by local law men who can't stand the corruption.  Turning a blind eye to crime even after irrefutable evidence has been tied up with a bow and delivered to you shows one hard truth.  You don't know because you dont want to know and it facilitates the federal philosephy Steve McCraw brought from the FBI to DPS in Texas and demonstrated in Uvalde.  "If you don't do anything, you can't get in trouble for anything". 




No one will convince me that Uvalde was NOT a false flag event.  The failure to stop the shooter from getting guns despite his history, failure to stop him from entering the building and simply  leaving him standing when they had multiple opportunities to take the shooter out prove to me it was an orchestrated event with a gun control agenda from the get go.  Convince me I am wrong.






"It all falls back into the lap of DPS Director, Steven McCraw.  You are either blind, deaf and dumb or you are corrupt too?  Which is it?  Neither answer is good.

    Neither you nor any of your Rangers ever did a thing about Hon filing a false report with a peace officer.  Why?  That inpentrable blue line?  Owed a favor?  Didn't want to expose the fact that the District Attorney Hon is a criminal? Hon knows where your skeletons are?

   I am beginning to believe the long held assertion that you, Mr. McCraw, brought the federal bureaucracy philosephy of, "If you don't do anything, you can't get in trouble for anything" to Texas DPS.  That is a shame.   Step up and do your job or resign.  We have had a belly full. 

   Surely you remember me.  I an the investigative reporter that uncovered your ex trooper, Doug Page, Trinity Co Judge, for stealing county money to buy a John Deere Gator.  Yes he admitted it, Gave the Gator back and returned the money but you didn't do a damn thing about his crime.  In fact, When I asked you, Director McCraw, if it was true that Page was fired from DPS for falsifying time sheets (stealing money) and that he was declared ineligible for rehire, it was YOU who feigned the inability to find one single scrap of paper in all of Texas that would clarify if he was fired and declared ineligible for rehire or not.  What a Crock of hooey.  That proved you were either a liar or inept.  Once again, Director McCraw, Which is it?  Neither answer is good.

ANGELINA CO 7/3/2022


EXPLOSIVE new evidence has surfaced in the ongoing story in Angelina County regarding the prosecution on false charges of David Stua. Billing himself as the, "East Texas Reporter", Stua had gone after a multitude of public records that he contends will prove corruption at the hands of the DA and a couple of judges in the county. How odd that none answered the open records request but all were instrumental in Jailing Stua on what now is PROVEN to be false charges.

The screen snip at left BY ITSELF proves that Angelina Community College PD Chief and the man who is over the law enforcement academy at Angelina College is a DAMN LIAR!!!!! Here is your question Doug Conn. Did you lie on your probable cause affidavit you wrote accusing Stua of sex crimes on the Angelina College campus that led to him being arrested, idicted and jailed or did you lie on this report that you submitted to a state agency?

In case you didn't know it, neither answer is good. I am going to answer the question for the readers. You lied on the probable cause affidavit that led to Stua's arrest, indictment and incarceration.

How do I know that? Because, despite the best efforts of DA Cassells to keep me from getting the video that Stua live streamed that fateful day, we did get it from another source. We have the entire video un edited in our posession. WE have the probable cause affidavit you wrote unedited in our posession. You lied Conn man.

How many have you taught your unethical ways since you have been over the academy at the Angelina College? We do know Lima spent considerable time training there and he was a criminal with a badge. We know Willaford and Albert Richards did too. How about Chris Simmons? Did you train him too? TCOLE request is submitted.

Now for you Mrs. Cassells. As I stated above, we have the full unedited copy of Stua's video you claim as evidence of his child sex crimes. The same child sex crimes you have been willing to dismiss WITH PREJUDICE in favor of a perjury and burglary charge (bogus also) just to keep him in jail and silenced. HOW DARE YOU file false charges on a man just because he wrote some things you didn't like and was looking into and seeking evidence of crimes you committed. You need to resign. You want to fight me to keep me from getting the video requested under open records? You best get it to me TODAY to prove your charges because unless it is an entirely different video than what we obtained in full and unedited, YOU ARE A CRIMINAL!!!!!

Don't worry about the FBI arresting you though even if you are committing this crime rigjht under the nose of the Lufkin office because the FBI put out a memo some years ago blaming the muckrakers among us (investigative journalists) for the disconnect between the citizenry and law enforcement for daring to expose corruption. The FBI doesn't blame the corrupt public official (like you), they blame the muckraker like Stua and me and White and Daubin and Reddell and . . . . .

What they don't understand is that we the people are not that stupid. We know it is the corruption in the criminal justice system that is to blame for the disconnect.

We the people love law and order. We are a nation of laws but we want it honest and YOU and CONN are NOT HONEST.

Please resign so we don't have to hammer you through the entire next election cycle because it will be my single focus until every voter in Angelina County knows how corrupt you and Conn are.

The four auditors that have already surrendered or been arrested were indicted by the most recently convened Grand Jury in Polk County.  Ishmael Rincon, Matt Rankin, Brandon White and Melanie McCrory were named for and accused of "Organized Crime." Despite our best effort, The Sentinel has not been able to spot a single crime related in any of the probable cause affidavits much less more than one crime that could be 'organized'.  Wearing a pistol in a holster while walking from car to residence.  LEGAL.  Driving around town and keeping an eye peeled for cops to audit.  LEGAL.  Filming public officials in public during the performance of their public duty.  LEGAL  Refusing to ID when an officer approaches your legally and already  parked car demanding ID but cannot articulate a crime you have committed, are suspected of committing or are about to commit?  LEGAL.  Circling the block multiple times to see if a local cop will step into it (ie: attempt to violate rights) and give you fodder for your youtube channel?  LEGAL.  Standing up for by exercising our constitutional rights.  LEGAL.  Being armed while doing all of the above?  LEGAL

    Once again, by witholding exculpatory evidence and outright lying to the Grand Jury, Hon makes a farse of the Grand Jury system in Polk County.  Did he show the Grand Jury the video of officer Simmons approaching the parked car with no back up and proclaiming that he wasn't worried about the guns, he just wanted to know who was driving?  I bet not or they wouldn't have included the obvious false statemnet about the officer being afraid for his life.

    Hon is a liar.  He is corrupt.  His retaliatory political blased prosecution is showing again.
