LIVINGSTON 9/17/2022


The attached note was left on a private vehicle in the Livingston Wal Mart parking lot this morning.  The recepient is a disabled vet who served our nation.  His plates on the vehicle are marked 'DV' which any idiot knows means 'Disabled Veteran'.   This note threatens him with physical violence just because the punk cannot see an obvious disability since the vet can still walk.  

    There is video of the incident saved by walmart.  An incident report was made to Livingston PD.  A positive ID of the person making the threat can be obtained by that video and their license plate number.  Let us see if Lee Hon will stand up for our vets.  He has already been quoted in open court diminishing PTSD .  

   A word to the wise for the PUNK with the pen.  I know this old coot.  He is too old and hurts too bad to jack with you.  It is a good thing you didn't hang around and make him feel threatened in person because you would have been in his jungle then.



just one of many victims has chosen to speak out on The Sentinel comments page.  Dana's question is not uncommon.  My best reply would be to contact the DA's office with a written complaint because The Sentinel  open records request is being with held based on there being an ongoing investigation.

    Much like the multiple parents calling about the failure of Brandi to provide the school records she took when she and her gang raided a local church and took all of the school equipment and supplies, there os an investigation ongoing.  The ,more evidence these guys have to work with, the more sure of a legitimate outcome of their investigation. It is all about intent and a pattern.  The SJC CAD will drop your homestead with no notice, raise your value.  By the time you figure out your homestead has been dropped and go get it reinstated, they have raised the value more than 10 percent.

    Find out who is on the board of directors since they are the ones that hire and fire the chief appraiser.   One is Steven Roberts, the disgraced former judge candidate whose integrity has been compromised by his own choice of actions.  His number is 713 582 2442 Roberts is the rep for the Shepherd ISD and is the subject of a recall effort in Shepherd.  All of the board members are listed on this PAGE.  

    We hope the tax payers of SJC will be encouraged to know that whistleblowers have stepped forward.  Some openly and some behind the scenes.  The common theme is, "enough is enough".






SHEPHERD 9/2/2022


A local Shepherd resident has approached the Shepherd ISD interim state appointed school board Superintendent pressing him to RECALL Steven Roberts as the ISD representative on the SJC C.A.D. Board of Directors.  Stevens serves as Vice-Chair of the CAD BOD.

   Supt Hewitt, according to written communication with the parent, is offering opportunity for said parent to meet with school board members to present evidence to them before a decision is made whether or not to place the item on the agenda for action.

   Evidence documents of not only the internal wheeling and dealing on realestate between board member Steven Roberts, A CAD appraiser and Chief Appraiser, Sherri Schell has come to light, so have his audio recorded lies about him denying the relationship.

     Old records regarding Roberts founding of a drug addiction peer group teen academy in Houston that was racked with allegations of sexual abuse of teens in the care and control of director of the academy they hired left a bad impression on the citizens of SJC regarding Roberts' integrity when he ran for judge.  One witness claimed that there were at least five times that students were sexually abused by staff but the director getting caught in the parking lot of the hosting church blocks from Roberts River Oaks home was the final straw.  It did not help that the West University police caught Roberts' academy director in the act with a teen age boy who claimed it had been going on since a sponsored retreat to Idaho.  

    Roberts solution was to abandon that teen peer group academy and start another.  

    We will leave his lying political ads based on CAD values attacking his opponent alone for now



Recent open records request for documents presented at the last CAD BOD meeting were met with a request for opinion from the OAG in an effort to block The Sentinel from seeing the documents.  In that request, BOD attorney, Joe Longoria made two claims of exemption from disclosure.  Personal identifiers (how long do you have to go to law school to figure out that you cand REDACT birthdates and SS numbers?) and exception 552.103.   This narrative straight out of the Govt Code spells out why Longoria wants to keep the evidence from The Sentinel.



Sec. 552.103. EXCEPTION: LITIGATION OR SETTLEMENT NEGOTIATIONS INVOLVING THE STATE OR A POLITICAL SUBDIVISION. (a) Information is excepted from the requirements of Section 552.021 if it is information relating to litigation of a civil or criminal nature to which the state or a political subdivision is or may be a party or to which an officer or employee of the state or a political subdivision, as a consequence of the person's office or employment, is or may be a party.

(b) For purposes of this section, the state or a political subdivision is considered to be a party to litigation of a criminal nature until the applicable statute of limitations has expired or until the defendant has exhausted all appellate and postconviction remedies in state and federal court.

(c) Information relating to litigation involving a governmental body or an officer or employee of a governmental body is excepted from disclosure under Subsection (a) only if the litigation is pending or reasonably anticipated on the date that the requestor applies to the officer for public information for access to or duplication of the information.

 /we just wonder if the fact that BOD member, Steven L. Roberts bought and sold property to an employee of the District then claimed not to know them other than casually?  Or if the nepotism laws were in constant violation.  

UPDATE 8/25/2022


According to attorney, Joe Longoria, there are no written minutes and therefor he is not reviewing the minutes as Asst. Chief Keller stated in his email.  What Mr. Longoria is reviewing is the stack of evidence documents that were presented in that board meeting.  "It will be at least a week or so", Longoria replied to my question on time frame but only after clarifying that he was not giving an interview for my publication.  His first question was to find out if I was recording the call.  I assured Mr. Longoria that I am old school and do not record my phone calls and would not without the other party being fully aware.  To me, that is just old school journalism ethics.  I did assure him that I was taking notes and would quote him.

    Mr. Longoria was most helpful and explained that the CAD would follow the open records laws as written.  My last question in trying to establish a time that I culd expect the release of the documents was asking how many pages he had.  There was no specific number as he had not done a document count but assured The Sentinel that it was, "quite a stack".




UPDATE 8/18/2022


In an interesting turn of events, the CAD new asst Chief, Keller emailed stating the recording of the Board meeting was ready but that the written minutes were still 'under review' by the CAD's attorney before they would be released.  Public record minutes of a public open meeting have to be reviewed?   That is better than the first response I got that the CAD would get me the requested records, "as soon as we can".  

   My response to that offer was to point out the time limits in the law.



COLDSPRING 8/17/2022


With the world in turmoil over the pandemiic, inflation, supply chain crisis and the like, the San Jacinto County Central Appraisal District saw it as the perfect time to double, triple, quadruple and even quintuple apparaised values based on a artificial increases stemming from panic buying.

     The state has strict limits on  how much a tax rate can be lowered or raised but is blind to the criminal exploitation of the property owners based on outrageous property value increases allowed in a year.  A homestead property is limited to a ten percent increase in value per year but any investor or landlord with more than one property is at the mercy of the CAD.  

    Texas is a non disclosure state when it comes to sale price of property.  The CAD's are tasked with digging up sales data to base their values on.  

    Travis County had a run in with the CAD using MLS (Multiple Listing Service) data in violation of the process.  This comment out of an ARTICLE HERE addresses the issue.   


ABOR (Austin Board of Realtors)  is also encouraging anyone who believes MLS data was used during property tax appraisal appeals, whether in Travis County or elsewhere, to email

It's unclear if this information could be accessed by the public or journalists. Some worry property valuations will rise notably because TCAD may have access to fresh sales data — something that doesn't normally happen in Texas, which doesn't require disclosure of real estate prices."

  The recent round of ARB hearings PROVE that the SJC CAD is using current sales data aquired directly from the HAR (Houston Association of Realtors) which is a very similar situation to what is lined out in the linked article from Travis Co.

    This, however is not the only unethical activity being scrutinized at the SJC CAD.  Especially notable is the recent activities of SJC CAD Board of Directors member, Steven Roberts, former failed judge candidate.  Roberts was soundly defeated when many of his unethical practices and associations were brought to light by The Sentinel during that election season.  Even with those actions being made public, local mover and shaker did champion Steve Roberts to be on the board representing Shepherd ISD.  

   It is past time for all of the taxing entities who place a member on the Board of Directors for the CAD to call a public meeting and allow public input to address the unsustainable practices of our out of Control CAD under the leadership of  Chief Appraiser, Sherri Schell.

    Sentinel readers will remember when we pointed out the violations of the nepotism laws at the Appraisal District some years ago when she had a mother and son both as appraisers on staff.  The son was fired long enough to let The Sentinel look the other way then re hired.

   Did I mention that my own home value was quintupled the VERY next notice of Appraised Value?  I won at ARB but Ms. Schell used evidence gathered AFTER my notice of protest was filed, an ILLEGAL act but I still won thanks to people of integrity on the Appraisal Review Board that saw through the retaliatory antics.  Thank you Mr. Benestante.  

    It is past time to address the illegal and unethical practices all too common at the CAD during your tenure as administrator Ms. Schell.  Just to be plain, for the good of SJC and its people. I call for your resignation.

    Your stedfast refusal to return my call or provide the open records The Sentinel has requested along with inability to retain qualified employees speaks volumes about your lack of integrity.  Just wondering now what else we are going to find?




UPDATE 8/26/2022 


The audio recording of the last CAD board meeting was released to The Sentinel after forcing me to sign a receipt for it.  After the above email, i submitted a follow up email a day or so later asking to review the evidence documents that have been submitted to the BOD during that meeting. At the ten day mark I contacted the BOD attorney, Joe Longoria, wanting to know what was the hold up because the CAD spokesperson said Longoria was 'reviewing' the documets.

    Longoria inserted his lies here.  He told me first off that there were no written minutes and that he was only reviewing the evidence documents.  When I asked how many pages of evidence documets he said there were quite afew.  When I pressed for a more accurate estimate, he stated, "There is quite a stack of them".  He failed to give me a time and date when the documents would be available in violation of the open records laws in Texas.  Then the lies came to be revealed when I got the recording.  In the recording, thefirst matter on the agenda was to accept the minutes from the last meeting after assuring all had had opportunity to read them.  The minutes the BOD attorney claims do not exist and only the recording served as a record.  In that recording, Steve Roberts states that the board is turning in 27 pages of the evidence documents for the attorney to review.  How long does it take to redact personal identifiers other than names from 27 pages?  According to Longoria, it will be another week or better.  

   Longoria's third bald face lie is that they board of directors and he will follow the open records laws.  What a crock of hooey this guy is.  Of course when you have a Chief Appraiser who is willing to violate the law with impunity, I guess an attorney adept at bald face lying is just the ticket.  No wonder Longoria was so worried about making sure that I was not recording the conversation.  





COLDSPRING 8/24/2022


Why would the last CAD board meeting minutes need to be reviewed by the CAD Board attorney for two weeks before they can release them to The Sentinel?  Could it be the trove of evidence that was presented at the meeting?  

    If you ask me, the minutes of a Texas open meeting are about at public as records can be.  What could possibly need to be redacted that takes two weeks to figure out?

     Joe Longorio of the law firm, Perdue, Brandon, Fielder, Collins and Mott is the attorney that represents the board so I asked him via voice mail.  No reply yet.

    According to the law, unless  the records are out of pocket or they suspect the cost will be over 40 dollars or "the next business day at minimum is the time frame.  If they cant produce them, they are required by law to notify me in writing of a time and date that the records will be available.

         Further developments are that the C.A.D. has scrubbed all employee information from the website as their own pages were used to prove that Sherri Schell is once again, violating the nepotism laws of the Great State of Texas with impunity.  

    Since breaking this story, The Sentinel has been inundated with calls complaining that the CAD is just arbitrairly removing exemptions when there has been no changes.  That is the most common complaint besides over valuations.  The 'peking duck' is a veiled reference to the communist thought process that leads to witholding public information.  

I have a couple of questions as you read the snippet of a letter written by a CAD employee.  If someone was 65 last year when they filed the homestead over age exemption, aren't they still over 65?  If a disabled vet was disabled last year, isn't he still disabled this year?  If a widow woman's husband was dead last year, isn't he still dead this year?

    One of the greatest atorcities has been the practice of making a broad sweep and removing  exemptions with no investigation or evidence that the AG has been discontinued.  




The above snippet of a letter penned by a SJC CAD employee proves that the local office IS using current sales info derived from a privileged source immediatly after the sale instead of doing the leg work the law requires.  Allegations are that a licensed realtor was working in CAD and using their access to privileged information against the tax payers.  This letter is a prime example.



American Airlines joins the ranks of the out of touch with America forces that are trying their best to ressurect racism in America.  From BET (Black Entertainment Television) to the Oprah Winfrey 'no whites allowed' network, racist CEO's do damage to our nation with the mentally challanged thought process that leads to this kind of segregation.  The marxist 'Woke' agenda has infiltrated schools and the work place with the plainly expressed agenda of destroying the fabric of the American society to bring us down as the world leader.  


JASPER 5/19/2022


The brutal murder story linked to the headline stops short of telling the full story.  Captured naked except for a piece of plastic tied around his waist, the killer had slashed his octogeneraian grandmother's throat and committed other atrocities to her body.  

    According to a reliable source, the grandmother had been warned about allowing this grandson to be around her but said she would rather die than ever turn her back on family.  





Civil asset forfieture moneys have been brought to the forefront in Trinity County by a bogus arrest and perp walked by "the walking woody, Sheriff Woodrow Wallace.   "  According to Sentinel sources, the auditor dared ask Woodrow Wallace in commissioner's court about 12K of proceeds from such sales and was soon after, perp walked accross the town square in cuffs on a bogus arrest.  Just happened to be noon time too.  

     A couple of inquiries to Trinity Co officials have gone unanswered as if they were never received.  

      An investigative effort by Sentinel sources has revealed that Woodrow Wallace owns or has interest in several auctionhouses.  

     Further investigation into legally required documentation of civil asset forfieture has failed to make  the case for seized packs of baby diapers being used in a criminal way to make them subjet to seizure.  

ONALASKA 2/26/2021


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.  1000 registered.  Made me wonder where was the nearest airport.  Then it made me wonder why the city of Livingston owns an airport and has a 'gate contract' with the adjoining development.  So it boils down to 1000 foreign nationals have US Tail Numbers and a select group can land and taxi right to their own house and private hanger with no scrutiny.  I don't know why I wonder things like that.  

    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 CO 1/5/2022


In what seems to be their comfort zone (picking on girls and telling lies) the bogus fakebook page today reported that the Polk Co Clerk violated the law because of a simple comment she made on a social media site.  

   The punks can't help themselves when it comes to lying or picking on girls.  An elections administrator, IF Polk Co had one, would be appointed by Commissioner's court. They haven't so they don't.  

   Despite the fact that these on going violations of the Tyler Evans circle jerks, have resulted in two seperate criminal charges filed against tyler evans in two different counties by (you got it) two different girls, Hon/Coleman  will NOT investigate the "who" of it because THEY ALREADY KNOW WHO THEY ARE!!! They won't investigate for the same reason they wont answer open records requests about payroll and Lima complaints.  They don't want to give up evidence of their illegal activities.

Not only did they tell some bald face lies this am, they stooped so low(oh that is right, God did curse snakes to already be on their belly) they picked on a girl that is not even able to step up and defend herself.  That spells PUNK in my dictionary.  

   Long time Sentinel Readers will remember that this is NOT the first time Lee Hon has lied on Polk Co Clerk, Ms. Hock.  Hon lied to the Texas Rangers to initiate and investigation into her office accusing Ms. Hock of secreting me out sensitive documents  just before Hon filed the 8even bogus felony counts on me.  The so called 'secreted document' was a marriage certificate I went into the records, looked up and paid a dollar for.  To the rangers credit, when they found out it was a public record I paid a dollar for three days into their investigation, they dropped it like a hot potato.  What they did NOT do is file any action against Li Hon for giving a false report to a police officer.  Hon should already be in jail.  The fact he isn't is an indictment on the criminal justice system.  Hon and his ilk are the reason people have had a belly full of corruption in Polk County and across this nation.  DOJ  DO YOU HEAR ME NOW?  It is what you know and when you knew it.    

   To explain the picture with this story.  Keith Black lives in Kotzebue Alaska and has been a regular viewer of my page for months now.  He never missed a day and was usually 2 or 3 views a day.  SINCE we ran the 'Hon Henchman" story exposing his connection as moderator and neighbor to Dumas, he has not viewed the page a single time in the last week and a half.

ONALASKA 11/15/2021


Onalaska PD officer ? resource officer?) Tammy Heeth has been being investigated since allegations of her assaulting an Elementary School mother in front of the school with her young daughters in the car.  

  Several  interesting issues have come up regarding the calls into the 911 systen that indicate some record tampering by ommission.  More to be seen.

   The story that prompts this headline is that Heeth's  personel file proves that the big name lawman Heeth got to give her a recomendation or 'endorsement' on her application was none other than William Jerry.  Jerry was fired from Polk Co Sheriff's Department for abusing people in the jail.  

    Sheriff Byron Lyons upheld the firing on Jerry's appeal.

         A local advocate with a long proven record of standing up for minority women and children has taken an interest in this case and the lives that surround it.  "It is not about color or race", Advocate Covalt stated and continued, "Just because we are L.U.L.A.C. "doessn't limit our need for Truth and Justice to a skin tone."  Without justice, it is "Just Us", Ms. Rose added.

        Both Heeth and the mother are white so there is not a racial card to play.  "It isn't about color, it is about corruption," Ms. Covalt emphasized again.  

      To those that doubt the ubiquity of Superfly eyes and ears, we have heard the story from the night of Ms. Parish's graduation where a lot of our first responders gather to let their hair down and party some.  More power too you guys and gals and thank you for your service to our communities.  After the beer flowed a little, Heeth, itis alleged, was overheard by one good servant (we have many) saying, "I would have tazed the bitch but her kids were in the car".  

     No servant's heart there if the allegations are true.  There is a bit of a list of folks that were there that could be questioned if necessary.  


TRINITY 11/11/2021


Trinity County Judge, Steven D. Page, as chief custodian of the Trinity County records opted to hide behind some asinine stall tactics instead of giving a simple reply to a simple question.  Our effort to get any document that would give the name of any K9 officer or drug interdiction officer employed by the Trinity Co Sheriff's office in the last two years was met with the above "request for clarification" letter from the attorney Page hired to stall the public from reading their own records.  







The "super" pest is buzzing around some big stories in the tri county area.  

Long time Sentinel readers will remember the stir that 'Superflyonthewall' created in the early days of the political message boards and online politics as an anonymous  handle we used.  The corrupt politicians who suffered the fate of having their crimes outed in public with proof  documents posted by The Fly found out that  It was an effective method then that still works today.  The only problem was that there was so much obsession with who 'The Fly" was that no one would discuss the issues at hand.  It was that situation that led me to finally put my name, physical address and phone number on The Sentinel and fade the heat (hate) so we could get to the issues.  Now all the corrupt can talk about is who they claim I am and fight to keep me from getting the records that prove who they are. 


So we here at The Sentinel hereby proclaim, "The Fly" -is ressurected and designate him to be the official anti corruption tip line for East Texas.  

       The first story  'The reborn Fly' is digging into is an allegation that Trinity County Sheriff Woody Wallace had a corrupt K9 officer who was removed from employment and Lima hired promoted to take his place.  The allegations are that the K9 officer was peddling confiscated drugs out of his  police vehicle.  Is there any truth to this Sheriff Wallace?  When he got a little heat on him, did you cut him loose?   In light of the facts surrounding the recent arrest of Lima and the allegations against him, it lends our source much more credibility.  Is it True Trinity County?  No prosecution and you ALL just kicked that problem down the road to another community and promoted Lima to fill the void?  The Fly wants to know. 

    Is that why you folks in Trinity County are paying an attorney tokeep me from seeing the public records of comments posted to the Trinity County Sheriff FB (oh excuse me, the META) page?  

    YOu guys are the ones paying a sheriff to claim how transparent he is then pay money to cloak him?
