FAILED JUDGE CANDIDATE IGNORES F.O.I.A. REQUEST

Steven Roberts has ignored an open records request submitted by The Sentinel regarding his public service on the Board of Directors of the CAD.  The request was written to zero in on any infomation pertaining to Roberts stagnant "half market" tax value for his home during the entire time he has been on the board.   Roberts personal Loan documents and marketing documents obtained by The Sentinel prove that his investment amount supports his sale price appraisal and it is only the CAD valuation that was low already and has stood still while the rest of us were getting record increases.  The property is over a half million dollars undervalued.  Mr. Roberts since you don't want any email from me and my questions scare you, I will say it here.  You dare to lie on a decent man accusing him of doing what you really are doing.   You will be  hearing from the OAG regarding your violation of the open records laws.   You act like you are above the law but you are not.

HOLIDAY VILLAGES LOA IN HOT WATER

    The United States Postal Service has initiated an investigation of Holiday Villages Livingston Owners Association (HVLOA) for violating Federal Law and charging owners for mailboxes. According to USPS Officials, it is illegal to charge for a mailbox when you don’t allow the mail to be delivered directly to an owners address. The only place the postal workers are allowed to deliver mail within the gated community is to the clubhouse, which is headquarters for HVLOA.
     Since the sub-division began, HVLOA has charged the owners for the right to have mail delivered to them at the mailboxes located in a small building outside the main gate.  According to USPS rules, a sub-division, apartment complex, trailer park, etc., can only charge for a key or for replacing the lock on a mailbox. HVLOA charges a $50 deposit and $36 a year for a mailbox. Officials of the HVLOA attempted to pass off the charge as a “maintenance” fee, which USPS rules do not allow for. They have also said the fee is “voluntarily” paid by owner, which is not the case, it is paid so owners can get their mail without having to drive to Onalaska or Point Blank. Voluntary Extortion is a better phrase for it.
    When folks have balked over the years for having to pay to receive their mail, they were told to go to Onalaska or Point Blank and rent a P.O. Box there if they didn’t like it. Note: A person does have the right to receive mail where they live.
  All the mail is put in the boxes by a postal worker. HVLOA does not handle the mail in any way, as is done at a private mail facility where they charge for a mail box since they put up the mail in the boxes, after USPS delivers it to the private facility. The mailboxes are just like ones at an apartment complex. No where in the USA does an apartment complex charge for a mail box, a key deposit maybe, but not a charge for receiving your mail.
     This has been going on for close to 18 years. Some of the original owners will be owed a lot of money if they take legal action to get their money back. HVLOA takes in around $7500 a year on a little over 200 mailboxes and spends virtually nothing on maintenance. The air conditioner in the back for the postal worker has been broken over 3 years and has not been repaired or replaced. Lights are on a sensor and only stay on a short period if someone checks their box after dark, so the electricity charge per month is minimal.

  Anyone wanting to file a complaint, should write a statement containing the facts as they apply to them and bring it to the Post Master at the Onalaska Post Office so it can be forwarded to Investigators.

Channel 26's, Ivory Hecker interviews neighbor, Barbara McGee
state fire marshall

PRESS CONFERENCE CANCELED

State and local firemarshalls spent hours sifting and photographing evidence today once most of the smoke had cleared.  One front tire smouldered slightly as the men examined the scene.  The bomb squad cleared the scene as to any explosives being used according to official sources.  It will take up to a month to get all the answers that the evidence holds but the educated guess is that an electrical problem started the blaze in the closely parked busses and the fire leap frogged from bus to bus, fully engulfing 4 and damaging a 5th bus. 

   Channel 26, 13 and 2 were on scene for the press conference along with Eastex Advocate and one other reporter.  The intitial reports of 'explosions' had many concerned including one close neighbor who heard them.  "There was one big one and then several smaller explosions." Barbara McGee stated. 

   COCISD Supt Leeland Moore and Transportation director, Cotton were both on site and answered all questions and interviewed with the main stream media.  "We have video and there was no one out there when the fire started", Cotton stated. 

   The center bus seems to have been the hottest and suffered the most damage with the metal so burned there wasn't even paint on most of it.  The chassis also set closer to the ground that any of the other busses.

COOPERATION CLEANS UP TOXIC WASTE SITE

   SJC Environmental Officer, Dale Everitt spearheaded an effort to deal with a toxic waste site that had devolved into being a 'tax sale' tract in the middle of a residential neighborhood in SE SJC.  TCEQ had the site on the books but it had slipped through the cracks when a business was no more.  The Sentinel investigated and reported on this situation last year and recently did a follow up to see if the assurances of Pct 2 Commissioner Donny Marrs and SJC Judge John Lovett had been met.  TCEQ stepped up to the plate and cleaned the tract up.  All of the drums were gone, the ground and the water all looked clean and there was new growth. 

    "Oh yes that one was completed and the process is moving forward on the 'Our Road' site as we speak", E.O. Everitt said.  "T.C.E.Q. has really gone the extra mile when it comes to these clean up efforts", he added.

COUNTY ENGINEER'S PERSONAL AGENDA CLOUDS JUDGEMENT
SJC Engineer and Steve R0berts campaign manager, Paul Bass, has once again violated the law and put his personal agenda ahead of the duty we all have to obey the law.  An email received at The Sentinel offices early this week outlined an effort by Bass to block a property owner in SJC from utilizing their lake front property in the manner they wish.        One of the tracts across from Paul and Sheena Bass' property on the west side of 190 as depicted in the CAD map above shows the Bass property in relation the tracts across the highway that actually front on the shoreline of Lake Livingston.  

   The email alleges that Bass sent an official letter telling the property owners they were to cease and desist development of the property as an RV park.  That order from Bass was based on the rules that SJC adopted years ago to manage the development of subdivisions in SJC and keep another Trails End from happening to our community.

   The item has still not been addressed by Commissioner's Court and Bass has not been issued any authority to act on behalf of the county on this matter.  As it stands, there are no rules regarding the development of R.V. Parks in SJC.  It seems that if the RV park is developed across the street from Paul and Sheena Bass, it would have the effect of blocking their view of the lake.

"FRITZ'S FOLLY" MET WITH FANTASTIC FANFARE

Go Texans utilized the fantastic new facilities Blessing the Coldsprings community landscape with a most invigorating out flow of community support and Utilization of such a beautiful space.  The pocket books opened for a great cause when a big room full of strangers, friends and neighbors all had a common cause. 

    What Roberts thought was a cute personal insult toward a man who had enough vision to see and persue the idea of such a grand hall has quickly been labled, "Robert's Folly" among those in the know.   It is a perfect example of how to blow up a lead balloon when you are a politician. 

   Lou Rogers coined the phrase, "Fritz's Folly" long ago on the record in commissioner's court.  For you to embrace the phrase, Mr. 'r'oberts in your recent speech only has the effect of permanently tying Rogers around your own neck in the minds of the people who know you both.  What Rogers did, in his effort to smear a sincere effort that has had a beautiful and useful addition to SJC, was prove his ignorance.  Ignore is the root of ignorance. 

   Even though Fritz's hand was taken off the tiller of the project before it was completed, he had set the course in the right direction with wind in the sails.  Sails that, through the efforts of Judge Lovett and Commissioner Bonds, Nettuno, Marrs and McAnally came to be a beautiful success even with a doldrum or two along the way.  What Lou meant as an effort to rain on Fritz's parade then and now through Roberts, only stands as proof of what foolish notions Rogers entertains.  

   How fitting that The Lords Timing had the building open to such fan fare and purpose as the Go Texans event. 

    My next public comments will be to ask The Court to commission a marble and brass marker to simply name the building, "Fritz's Folly" so no one can forget what a vision for our community looks like in Timber and Stone.

     Is embracing that foolishness profitable to your campaign 'r'oberts?  Me thinks not.

UPDATE 12/1/2017

EASTEX ADVOCATE PUBLISHES FAKE NEWS . . . . . AGAIN

The public record of commissioner's court for the 28th proves that the Commissioners accepted Kelly Selmer Wineinger's resignation and then a little later, came out of executive session after counseling with DA Trapp and voted to appoint a Tax Assessor Collector for SJC.  Diane Griffiths, a long time and qualified employee was appointed to fill the void.  The only business remainig is a vote to accept the bond for Ms. Griffiths.  The Advocate article falsely states that the commissioner's are seeking applicants for the appointment and that statement is patently false.   The article also states that the Dec 4th meeting will be held to appoint a Tax Assessor Collector.  That statement is also patently false.   Not one single commissioner was questioned on the topic by the Eastex Advocate reporter. 

ELECTION CODE Sec. 201.023. RESIGNATION. If an officer submits a resignation, whether to be effective immediately or at a future date, a vacancy occurs on the date the resignation is accepted by the appropriate authority or on the eighth day after the date of its receipt by the authority, whichever is earlier.

COMMISSIONERS MAKE EXCELLENT DECISION

With claims at least three people are going to run for the abandoned Tax Assessor Collector position in SJC, Commissioners have agreed to appoint a long term employee of the office to fill the interim who has no plans to run for the office.  Despite pressure from outside sources and the judge to give one of the candidates the incumbant advantage by appointing them now, Commissioners studied the situation and agreed their decision would put someone in who knows the job and not throw the election process out of whack by appointing one of the candidates.

EX PROBATION OFFICER - EX TEACHER RE EMERGES SEEKING LIME LIGHT

CORRECTS SENTINEL:

Keith Black, the plaintiff in a lawsuit filed against Sentinel Alert owner and publisher, Stephen C. Watson, makes a valid correction in his 'Comment' submitted for publication in The Sentinel Alert last Saturday in the left column.  We haven't found the story yet to make the correction but will if it is still up.  It was "the Order" that was vacated, not the judgement.  Considering that The Sentinel published the actual court document when the story first broke shows there is nothing to hide in my simple error.   From there on, what a treasure trove of insight into the mind and manner Keith Black's comments are.   The Sentinel (as is our right and duty) will address the comments in the near future.  As is our style, we will let Black's comments stand alone with no distraction . . . . . . for a bit.

 

Keith Black <klbcoldspring2015@hotmail.com> (Saturday, December 30 17 11:43 pm EST)

You are incorrect. The judgment still stands against you. (Correction noted.  Apology for my error) The judge vacated the order to clarify the court's order at a later date.  (That is the correct wording of the document The Sentinel has already published) You have another trial date coming with Judge Countiss in the future. (This is where it gets interesting. No action has been taken on CV 14529 since Judge McClendon vacated his unconstitutional order.  No hearing has been requested much less set.  How do you know what judge will be appointed at a future date for a future hearing?  Is this a glimpse into a corrupt operation of our court system from something you were told by one or both of your allegedly high powered lawyers or a wish they were relevant politically wanna be braggarts who don’t even understand the implication of your slanderous statement. A statement that on the face of it slanders The Honorable Judge Olen Underwood just by its utterance much less publication as a duly submitted comment to The Sentinel Alert publication)  The question is the dollar value of the lawsuit to be determined.  (“Tee Hee Hee”, As Superflyonthewall used to say, “you don’t have a clue”.  A simple perusal of the C.A.D. policy and laws would prove that their records are not for legal purposes.  Maybe that is why several of the local attorneys who actually pay attention to the Official Deed Records of SJC snicker at your team’s best efforts.  Ask the county delinquent tax attorney, Steve Lee, if he didn’t try to include me on a lawsuit for back taxes recently on a tract of land that I never owned and never will own using CAD records showing it in my name to base his lawsuit on.   Ask TRA if they didn’t try to cite me for a violation on a different tract of land I don’t own based on incorrect CAD records.  But then don’t let me rain on your parade.  You girls go ahead and knock your lights out.           

 

Keith Black <klbcoldspring2015@hotmail.com> (Sunday, December 31 17 08:58 am EST)

I fully expect you to start trying to slander Judge Countiss now. (I don’t and never have slandered anyone.  I just report the news that some folks don’t want reported.  The Sentinel has made some mistakes and corrected them but 99% of the time we are right on the money, way earlier than any other news source IF they will even report on the story.  Take your case for instance.  I reported you were a criminal and sexual predator that was fired from the probation department for your crimes and then proved it with documents out of your employment file. I would say I'll see you in court, but we know you're too much of a coward to show.  (Not to sound digitally cliché but, LOL.  You really express your ignorance easily.  I fear God and God only.  In the past, the record proves that we have tackled corrupt lawmen, DA’s, Judges and even the Attorney General, two of my kids have been shot at, lug nuts broken twice, Lou Rogers threatened to shoot me when I went after his badge, Ex Judge Bob Smith called threatening to whup my a$$ and you think we find a few prissy girls scary?)  You have not shown up one time during the lawsuit. (And you lie.  Have I mentioned that?  You apparently fail to comprehend that the attorney that has appeared at every hearing is me in the eyes of the law for the purposes of your pointless lawsuit.  Since Mike Davis took the case, I have not received the first notice from the District Clerk’s office of a hearing until the illegal subpoena was issued.  My failure to attend most hearings was because of a total dis interest in the proceedings, not fear.  I know that you can’t touch me with any judgement amount and we all know you are gone from any position of authority over the youngsters in our community.  Mission accomplished.  The thanks from two middle school mothers and even the written thankyou from a former female co worker of yours for my efforts to remove your pervert self far outstrip any material thing you even hope to obtain via your pointless lawsuit.  Her missive to me reflects the gratitude of a woman I have known since she was 9 or 10 years old and is precious to me.  In the depth of their messages of thanks to me, you girl’s threats ring hollow.

    Since you claim to have a private line with the judicial process in SJC, why not ask the Judge if I appeared in person to the SJC District Court room the day he issued the illegal subpoena for me to be there as a witness.  I had already complied with the legal portion of his order to remove mention of you from my website even though I disagreed with it because we all know everything I said was true.  I appeared that day but was called out of the courtroom moments before the hearing and told to leave by my attorney who then (representing me in the eyes of the law) went upstairs and twisted the opposition attorney up proving the subpoena was illegal, had no merit and would not stand.  Where were you?  Oh that is right, the local female lawyer, Ms. Prigmore, who showed up is you in the eyes of the law.  She left with her (as you like to call them) manties ‘in a wad’ so to say.   My lawyer thinks it's hilarious that you won't take her on face to face.  (Which lawyer?  You have two.  Don’t leave the infamous Mary Olga Lovett Warren out of the discussion.  Ask them again if Stephen Watson’s legal representative showed up to face Keith Black’s legal representatives in every hearing including this hearing that lasted less than five minutes and stopped their illegal antics in their tracks.    Then ask Sissy if I didn’t attempt to interview her face to face on the court house steps a couple days later asking, “What do you think of the judge’s unconstitutional order?”  in front of a witness.  “He is the judge” was her snide remark as she refused to face me and chose to walk away in the “afterglow” of her hollow victory.  “You can rest assured I am going to teach you and the judge a lesson about The Constitution” was my unchecked and out loud reply to her.  In that moment, Sissy Prigmore, as an officer of the court, demonstrated her seditious and treasonous heart in her willingness to undermine our Constitution despite her oath to do otherwise. 

  The fact remains that The Sentinel couldn’t help pondering what Sissy or Mary-Olga could possibly do to induce a man to stoop to allowing the illegal actions that were conducted in the courtroom.  Despite finding several in the community including peers willing to comment on Sissy’s ‘abilities’, The Sentinel will not quote any of them even in anonymity.  Suffice it to say it had to do with her ability to coax a key thru a keyhole.  Despite my curiosity, I won’t try to judge the motives of another man’s heart.   He did what he did for reasons only he knows, it is a matter of record and he will be the only one to answer his Creator for his actions. 

but you are who you are.   (Yes sir I am.  Is that why you run every time you see me and do your best to avoid me?  Is it my lack of fear that un nerves you?  Is my straight spoken nature too much to bear?  Or is it because you and I both know you have done things that you deserve a beat down and to go to prison for?  Tell us Mr. Mouth.  The comment column is open.)

SJC Commissioners, according to Sentinel Sources, have approached DA Robert Hill Trapp with the evidence obtained by The Sentinel and requested that he look into the possibility of filing an abandonment suit against SJC Tax Assessor Collector, Kelly Selmer-Wineinger.  Wineinger has moved to Greenville, Texas and has applied for multiple jobs in that area listing Greenville as both her 'Present' and 'Permanent' address since June of this year.

SJC TAX ASSESSOR COLLECTOR CHIEF DEPUTY RESIGNS

An early morning call to The Sentinel offices confirmed that Sommer Brinkley has resigned her position with the SJC Tax Assessor Collector's office effective today.  Other reports from late last week and confirmed today were that Sommer Brinkley faults me as the reason she is quitting.  Further investigation into the goings on in Greenville concerning the Hunt County Tax Assessor Collector have turned up some interesting content on a couple of agendas related to what law firm will get to collect the taxes for the ISD.  We are awaiting the full filling of an open records request to said Hunt Co Tax Collector.

(Sentinel comments in red)
 
DA Trapp,
 
I wanted to inform you as per my conversation with TAC and the Texas Ethics Commission today regarding some magnetic signs on my Chief Deputy Sommer Brinkley’s vehicle.
 
Apparently Mr. Watson seems to think she has them on her car illegally and that we are attempting to pull one over on the taxpayers. He’s got a picture of Sommer’s vehicle with the signs on them along with a story of how they are on there illegally on his website.     (Here you go again saying I said something that I never said You can beat that straw man like nobody's business.  Here is an exact quote from my story in reference to the signs.  "They do not say, "Office of the Tax Assessor Collector" but rather identify the occupant as that elected official in violation of Texas law."   My statement is that to falsely identify ones self as an elected official is a violation of Texas Law . . . . and it is.)
 
I spoke with both agencies attorneys today TAC Katherine Howard and Ethics Commission Joseph Keeney. TAC said there was nothing illegal about the signs as it’s no difference than all the Sheriff’s deputies having the word “Sheriff” on their cars.  (TAC Attorney Katherine Howard actually told you that she personally didn't see a difference in your deputy having signs or the sheriff deputies driving cars that say sheriff.  Then she was careful to say that TAC would not have any business getting into the case as Robert Hill Trapp is the State's Attorney in SJC.  For you to speak as if TAC settled the issue and indicate you are just letting the DA know out of a courtesy to keep him in the loop is another plain out lie that we can chalk up to your column.)  The Ethics Commission told me as long as it’s it’s political advertising then there is absolutely nothing illegal with her having them on her car.  (Once again you lie.  Joseph Keeney was very clear that their ONLY concern is with political advertising signs and they would not have any involvement in this case.  You lied on two highly regarded public servants in an attempt to cover your own self)
 
TAC suggested that I just let you know since you are the District Attorney so that is what I am doing..I’m sure you have plenty to do besides worry about magnets on people’s vehicles but I wanted to keep you in the loop.  (lol you keeping DA Trapp "in the loop".  Ms Wineinger, Robert Hill Trapp IS the loop in SJC.  As the most powerful elected official in our county, 'the loop' begins and ends with him.)
 
I am sorry to bother you with such trivial things.  (TRIVIAL?  let us project a plausible scenario here.  Despite the fact that there is absolutly no duty of the Tax office that requires field trips or inspections, etc, how about if Ms. Brinkley chose to go to the store for bread and milk and was in a hurry to get home and God forbid, crossed the line and ran over someone with YOUR Seal on her car.   Who they gonna sue?  Lovett didn't even have his seal of office at his wreck scene but claimed he was on county business.  SJC is being sued over that.  With your seal on her private vehicle, the victims family would not even have to ask who it was driving because YOUR seal on her private vehicle identifies her as our Tax Assessor Collector in violation of Texas law.  She is officially on county business whether she is or not.  As I love to say, "right or wrong, it is official".  When that county owned, tax exempt plate sheriff car rolls up, you can know they are there on official business.)
 
Thank you,
Kelly Wineinger

Mr. Watson,

1. I would like to correct a few things you have wrong in your article about me. If your going to write something about me maybe you should speak to me first before publishing it for true and correct answers instead of RUMORS.

1. My medical leave is my business and no one else’s. (Actually, whatever causes you to abandon your duties that we elected and pay you to do is our business.  Agreed that your personal medical information is private but you being gone from office and unable to do your duties is completely our business.) It’s no ones business why I am not in the office. (See last answer) As well you know an elected official isn’t bound by hours and days to be in the office. (And as you know, elected officials ARE bound by an oath and THE LAW to do their duty.)  I work remotely and can do anything from the house that I can do sitting at my desk. (I won’t even address that stupid statement.  It just proves you think we are all idiots.) I spoke with the commissioners about my leave before I ever left. (What a small world.  I have spoken with all the commissioners about your leave too.) They know why I am gone not that I needed to tell anyone. (Why you seem to think you can just drop out of site and not owe the taxpayers an explanation baffles me)

2. If your going to use someone’s name you should make sure you spell it correctly. My chief deputy’s name is spelled Sommer Brinkley (My Apology – I stand corrected)

3. As for me resigning don’t know why it still comes up. I have no plans to resign on January 1..I have made it clear to all the commissioners in and out of open court that I’m not resigning but I probably would not stay the whole three years left on my term. Whoever told you this is a complete liar!  (Someone is a complete liar.  You sure it is my sources?)

4. Regarding me wanting Sommer appointed. Of course I would like to see the Chief Deputy be appointed when I decide to leave. What Tax Assessor wouldn’t want her chief deputy to take her place.   (That will be up to and the duty of the commissioners to decide.  From what I can gather, there is a consensus among several that a new set of eyes on the books might not be a bad idea.  Lots of questions we will get to after this.) 

5. The signs on Sommer car are not there to falsify anything or anyone. I had two sets made like two years ago. They have been on her car for nearly two years (Thanks for that confession) except during my re election time during the voting.  I spoke with the tax attorney before ever ordering two sets to make sure it was ok she had them on there. He said it was fine. So if I am breaking the law I will have Sommer remove them as I’m not the kind of person to be breaking the law or trying to pull one over on the taxpayers. I again didn’t hand over her “MY” set of magnets. (So she stole them?)  She has her own just as I do.  (You can’t give someone the right to identify themselves as our SJC Tax Assessor Collector.  Only the voters or, in the event of abandonment and/or removal, our elected representatives can do that.  Those decals on Sommer’s car are YOURS by default)

6. As for Sommer moving into my office. You are really pulling at straws. Again she moved in there last March 2016 about a year and half ago.  (That is about when you started dating Randy L. Wineingar, Hunt Co Tax Collector and quit showing up to work regular if I am not mistaken) We took over doing pay agreements from the attorneys and I thought it would be more private for her to have the taxpayers come in my office rather that have their business being taken care of out in public through the window.  So again nothing is meant by her being in my office.

In the future if you want to know something about me and or my office and staff please come to me first by email. I have nothing to hide nor am I trying to pull anything over on the taxpayers or the county.
