Click on former City Solicitor Mike Jones name on bar at top of the blogspot DOUBLE-JEOPARDY VIOLATION OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS OF ALAN BARLOW.- see 29 pages of evil UNITED STATES NAVY COMMANDER Mike Jones' documents

from his DOUBLE JEOPARDY CHARGES

Solicitor Mike Jones was and is a member of the UNITED STATES NAVY RESERVE as an Attorney and holds the rank of (O-5) Commander

AN  UNCONSTITUTIONAL DOUBLE JEOPARDY ACTION BY PORTSMOUTH, OHIO CITY SOLICITOR MIKE JONES  WAS COMMITTED AGAINST ALAN BARLOW, A HIGHLY DECORATED, WAR-WOUNDED COMBAT VETERAN OF 30 YEARS WHO RETIRED WITH HIGHEST  ENLISTED RANK IN THE UNITED STATES ARMY; HE WAS THE TOP SERGEANT MAJOR OF THE ARMY

BECAUSE THE VETERAN SOLDIER EXPOSED A COVERT CONSPIRACY DEALING IN CITY OWNED REAL ESTATE THAT SOLICITOR MIKE JONES, MUNICIPAL COURT JUDGE STEVE MOWERY,  FIRST WARD COUNCILMAN KEVIN  WADSWORTH JOHNSON,  INSURANCE AGENT SEAN BOLDMAN, A BANKER BY THE NAME OF WAYNE KEMPF AND A BANKER NAMED MIKE GAMPP, CHIEF MONEY HANDLER OF THE NOW CLOSED DOWN (by the Federal Bureau of Investigation) SOUTHERN OHIO GROWTH PARTNERSHIP (SOGP), and Councilman JAMES RICHARD SADDLER, MAYOR DAVID MALONE, AND JOHN HAAS, AN APPOINTED COUNCILMAN.  (Haas is now the City Solicitor of Portsmouth by appointment.)  

THESE PERSONS AND MORE ) WERE INVOLVED IN ILLEGAL ACTS AND PLANNING TO DEAL IN CITY OWNED REAL ESTATE WITHOUT PROPER AUTHORITY  FROM SEPTEMBER 2011 TO THE MIDDLE OF FEBRUARY IN 2012

 ALAN BARLOW had been SERVING AS THE CHAIR OF THIS “BUILDING COMMITTEE “

WHEN THE HONEST VETERAN ALAN BARLOW EXPOSED THE GROUP THROUGH THE PORTSMOUTH DAILY TIMES RETALIATION AGAINST ALAN BARLOW FOR TELLING THE TRUTH WAS  SWIFT BY UNITED STATES NAVY RESERVE COMMANDER MIKE JONES, CIVIL RIGHTS VIOLATOR, WHO IS ALSO KNOWN AS  MIKE JONES, CITY ATTORNEY FOR THE SATANIC MOB THAT ILLEGALLY CONTROLS MUCH OF PORTSMOUTH CITY GOVERNMENT FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE FEW WEALTHY WHITE TRASH WHO ARE IN CHARGE OF MUCH OF THE REAL ESTATE DEALING, DRUG CRIME, PROSTITUTION AND THEFTS OF PUBLIC FUNDS IN THE CITY OF PORTSMOUTH AND NEARBY AREAS.

      IN RETALIATION  MIKE JONES  CHARGED THE OLD SOLDIER WITH A MINOR MISDEMEANOR VIOLATION IN MAY 2012.

 JUDGE SCHISLER FOUND NO FAULT (NO CULPABILITY) with the old soldier and dismissed the case.        WHEN MIKE JONES RETURNED TO WORK (He doesn't show up for court many times.)  HE ,COMMANDER MIKE JONES  WAS REAL ANGRY.  "We are going to do a "RE-DO" on this case."  Mike Jones then scheduled Alan Barlow to appear for prosecution a second time in Portsmouth Municipal Court on an identical charge that had been dismissed by Judge Schisler.  The Judge that Alan Barlow was now to appear in front of was Municipal Court Judge Steve Mowery, the same Judge Mowery that Alan Barlow had exposed with the help of the Portsmouth Daily Times Newspaper and other news outlets.  Alan Barlow hired an attorney, John Thatcher to represent him in this second hearing in front of Judge Mowery.  No help from John Thatcher; that was a waste of money ($200,00) as Alan Barlow was found Guilty by Judge Steven Mowery and had to pay $114.00 in costs to the Court.

MIKE JONES IS A RESERVE LAWYER WITH THE RANK OF COMMANDER IN THE UNITED STATES NAVY RESERVE AND WAS RECENTLY GIVEN A PART-TIME JOB AS A RESERVE JUDGE TO DECIDE PENALTIES AND PRISON TIME AGAINST UNITED STATES SAILORS BROUGHT BEFORE COMMANDER MIKE JONES IN NAVY COURTS.

MIKE JONES GETS A LOT OF PUBLICITY AS A COMMANDER IN THE UNITED STATES NAVY. 

MIKE JONES MAKE EXTENSIVE POLITICAL USE OF HIS UNIFORM AS A MEMBER OF THE NAVY AND HE IS GIVING THE NAVY A BAD SMELL IN THE AIR WHEN HE APPEARS IN BIG POLITICAL ADS IN FULL DRESS UNIFORM AS A NAVY COMMANDER (0-5)  HE IS ADVERTISING THAT SUCH A  CRIMINAL VIOLATOR OF CITIZENS RIGHTS AS HE IS, IS PERMITTED BY HIS SUPERIOR OFFICERS IN THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE TO REMAIN IN THE ARMED FORCES OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

(Yes, this is the same United States Navy Commander Mike Jones who had the dirty donut shop next door to the City Library in Portsmouth, Ohio that was so full of cockroaches that he had many extra inspections from the Portsmouth City Health Department.  Mike Jones sold the donut shop and all the sordid reputation and crawling insects that went with it;  Commander Mike Jones sold out without passing the Inspection by the Portsmouth Health Department.

In early 2009 Commander Mike Jones tried to frame an old citizen (Harald Daub) who had beaten Commander Jones in 2008 in an election contest hearing.

Mr. Harald Daub filed election violation charges against lying Officials that Jones' represented.  Mike Jones lost the case.  The Court agreed with Mr. Daub. 

City Solicitor Mike Jones also lost on a totally phony charge against Harald Daub of stealing some unknown hardware from an Aldi Grocery Store in Portsmouth, Ohio. 

It was a big all-day trial 

 by Jury.  Prosecutor Mike Jones even hired a big bus and armed officers to carry the jury from the court-room to the ALDI grocery store to view the scene of a crime that had not occurred. The Jury found ' Harald Daub NOT GUILTY.  

 This same Mike Jones now will be judging United States Navy Sailors On charges under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. (UCMJ)  The officers in command of the Navy Courts where they may be using Commander Mike Jones as a Judge are likely to find themselves in Court or in an Investigative Examination to explain why an abusive, unstable, unsanitary officer such as Mike Jones has been allowed to remain in the Navy.. 

If  United States Navy Reserve Commander Mike Jones is used to pass judgment on our brave sailors we shall need to pray for Commander Mike Jones’ soul and weep for the sailors Jones  passes judgment on.

Website Future:
This website will be changing in the near future, as needed, to inform and support citizens to be involved.


Website Past:
I became involved in City Government in 2004 after a series of poor decisions, by our elected officials, became visible and reported on the internet sites.  I decided to investigate by attending City Council meetings and becoming involved.  I discovered many of the decisions of City Council were not based on fact and did not include the necessary foresight required to address the problems at hand.

I am honored to have served the citizens of the 3rd Ward, City of Portsmouth, from December 13, 2004 through December 31, 2009. 

The expectations of elected officials must be raised.  I believe in holding elected officials accountable.  The taxpayers are owed accountability.  Accountability is the only way to return integrity and respect to the office of elected officials.

Elected officials must represent citizens to make decisions.  Citizens must be informed.  Elected officials must find ways to inform and create an environment that encourages public involvement.  Citizens must hold elected officials in check.  This can only be done if they are well informed.


"Whenever the people are well-informed, they can be trusted with their own government."    Thomas Jefferson


Citizens have many challenges ahead and must be a part of those decisions.  Citizens must choose to be a part of the challenge and not the victim.  Communication is key!  Do not be a victim of the system contact your representative with your views and comments!!!!

The Devil is Running Scioto County,”

 

Austin Leedom, writer for Shawnee Sentinel since 1995

These fitting words were reported as the opinion of Ohio Governor John Kasich after his first visit to Portsmouth after he won the election in November 2010. 

Governor John Kasich was correct; he has been right in many views and statements, and has been of good  assistance to Portsmouth and Scioto County, but has been recently led astray by The Devil’s use of local Portsmouth wealthy, privileged, acquisitive socialite gods and goddesses to convince Governor John Kasich to make a sorry appointment that not only will be extremely news-worthy state-wide and perhaps nationally, but also will bring deep embarrassment to Shawnee State University, to Governor Kasich and to the Ohio Republican party.

Governor Kasich quickly recognized the Devil’s presence in Scioto County; but he did not perceive the strength of Satan’s close control of this area.

Governor John Kasich has known our Scioto County Devil only three years while Old Satan has been solidly at home and in command here on the banks of the Scioto and Ohio Rivers for at least the past 86 years after the City of Portsmouth forsook the Ohio Code and became a self-governing Charter City in 1928.  This change was necessary for a planned takeover by an elite group of bankers, lawyers, real estate dealers, merchants and industrialists that merged into a small mobbed-up group of power persons who have since been secretly controlling the actions of the law-making city council, and have been affecting all departments of the city government for increases in their personal profits and pleasures, at the expense of the rest of us.  The mob has continued down through the years with one generation of grasping pretenders passing away and another generation of white collar imitation royalty taking the places of the once mighty deceased people of power.

And, 98 years before 1928, the mostly hidden history of Portsmouth indicates that The Devil was running the city as far back as the forced eviction of all black citizens from Portsmouth out into the frozen, snow-covered streets and out of town, with only the items they were wearing or carrying as they were forced out of the City into an icy wilderness on “Black Friday” January 21, 1830.

The Devil is still busy with discrimination against black citizens.  Similar violations against blacks have continued; most recently City Solicitor Mike Jones in 2012 committed the crime of Double Jeopardy against a high ranking and distinguished retired 30 year veteran, a holder of the Purple Heart.  This elderly veteran appeared before a Municipal Court Judge who found no crime had been committed and dismissed the case.  Days later, Solicitor Mike Jones returned to this office and learned the case had been dismissed.  Mike Jones was angry that the man had been found NOT GUILTY and Jones then ordered a “re-do” and the wounded old war veteran was taken to court again in violation of his constitutional rights.   The Purple Heart retired high ranking veteran was a black man.

THIS IS MIKE JONES’ DISGRACE TO PORTSMOUTH, OHIO

This is okay with many people in power; THIS IS PORTSMOUTH!  Racism and discrimination is alive here in the Devil’s City  Mike Jones is running for a position of Judge of the County Common Pleas Court in the upcoming election of November 2014.  Remember Double Jeopardy Jones’ is a racist, Un-American on Election Day.

This book is the first of a series detailing shocking inside revelations of more recent actions and crimes of the Devil’s Disciples in the near total destruction of the economy of the City of Portsmouth and the building of a nation-wide reputation as one of the top drug dealing cities in America, and as one of the worst places in a America to reside and live under excessive taxation, tyranny, corruption and violations of constitutional rights.

First we will consider the appointment by Governor Kasich of one of our local high-society ladies to an important position she is not qualified for.

Dr. Robert Forrey, author of River Vices articles for the past eleven years is a retired Professor of English from Shawnee State University (SSU) where he served as a strong member of the faculty union.  He has researched and written over four-hundred articles since his retirement from SSU ten years ago.

Hurrricane Klara: SSU's Perfect Storm

perfectstorm2
(This is a re-posting of a piece that originally appeared in River Vices on Oct. 25, 2005. I am currently writing another piece on Kay Reynolds called “Slumlord Klara,” in the writing of which I was reminded that, “The more things change, the more they remain the same.” Yes, the political hack is back on the SSU  Board of Trustees only now its Governor Kasich, not Governor Taft, she will be an embarrassment to.)

As if SSU needed any further dumbing down, Governor Robert Taft has appointed Kay “Hurricane Klara” Reynolds as chair of the Shawnee State Board of Trustees. It is the kind of stupid political move that has sent Taft’s poll numbers plummeting and almost guarantees that Ohio Republicans will be made to pay by voters in the next election.

Taft has already pleaded no contest to ethic violations. If only he could be put on trial for acting like a dodo, which is what he was in appointing Reynolds chair of the trustees. If anyone in the governor’s office could remember that far back, or cared, Klara Kay Reynolds was one of those trustees who conspired with university lawyer Stephen P. Donohue to remove the most popular and effective president Shawnee State has ever had, James P. Chapman, causing an uproar on campus and reinforcing SSU’s abysmal reputation in the academic world.

Reynold’s appointment caps a trend at SSU, which more than any other institution of higher education I know of shows the validity of the “Peter Principle,” which is “The theory that employees [and trustees] within an organization will advance to their highest level of competence and then be promoted to and remain at a level at which they are incompetent” (American Heritage Dictionary). With Hurricane Klara as chair of the trustees, Stephen P. Donohue as de facto president, Rita Rice Morris as nominal president, Michael Field as provost, and John Kelley as interim dean, we are faced with the equivalent of a perfect storm of incompetence and questionable ethics.

Rita Rice Morris has made a name for herself by jumping out of airplanes and joining in the beatification of real estate developer Neal Hatcher but not for being a strong leader. She lives in the infamous house on the hill, that distressed piece of property on Camelot Drive, that money pit that the trustees purchased at an inflated price from a doctor in distress, just as they had previously bought from local lawyer and politician John Thatcher at an inflated price a temporary president’s house, i.e., a piece of distressed property, on Franklin Blvd, which the trustees then took a $50 thousand loss on when they sold it to another doctor. Doctors and lawyers are among Portsmouth’s over-privileged who profit from public treasuries.

Donohue, the over-privileged’s defacto president at SSU, handled the Franklin Blvd. fiasco from start to finish. As an Asst. Attorney General for the State of Ohio, Donohue would of course have known whether the purchase of the Thatcher house violated state law, wouldn’t he? Hired in a stealth search and on the basis of a resume that would not have got him even an interview at an ethical institution, he then declined, once hired, to discuss his past history with a Daily Times reporter. Since he is rumored to have been fired from his previous job, we can begin to understand his doctored resume and his reluctance to be interviewed about his past job experience.

Provost Field, acting as interim president, was just the kind of obliging bureaucrat whom the over-privileged of Portsmouth and several trustees and Donohue wanted as the next permanent president of SSU, but Field’s performance as provost and then as interim president was rated very poorly by the faculty, and then the campaign to make him the new president was handled so incompetently by his handlers that he was not even among the three finalists chosen by the presidential search committee. There has usually been at least one trustee of integrity, and that is another reason why Field did not become the new president. Field ended up, with a hefty raise, back in the provost’s office, at the job at which he never should have been temporarily promoted from, according to the Peter Principle. As provost, he had clearly reached his level of incompetence, and there he will probably remain until he retires, for who else, given his track record at SSU, would hire him, and who given his willingness to play ball no matter how sleazy the game, would dare fire him?

John Kelley completes the perfect storm at SSU. Shortly before Kelley was appointed interim provost, when speculation was rife about who would replace Field as interim provost, the word was that the trustees were going to appoint “a faculty friendly” person to the position. Kelley may have been a trustee favorite, but he was not a faculty favorite. Kelley is liked by the faculty, considerably more than the provost is. But it is sometimes the case that a person can be liked but not respected. Kelley could be described as bi-institutional, which gives him advantages that he does not fail to take advantage of, but it is also a quality that makes him look at times as if he is working both sides of the street. It is the administration and the trustees, not the faculty, who appoint Kelley to his interim administrative positions, and they appoint him because he can be counted on to do the questionable things administrators and trustees want him to do, which is what he can be expected to continue to do as interim dean.

But who makes the impending storm at SSU frightening is, above all, Hurricane Klara. While President Chapman was working a miracle at SSU and making improvements and building remarkable bridges to faculty, students, and community, Klara Kay Reynolds and several other trustees were working to undermine and remove him. Hurricane Klara, with her undergraduate major in Home Economics at Ohio State, this political hack, considers herself pretty smart, as is evident in her pretentious but poorly written evaluation of President Chapman that was leaked back in July 2001.

While Chapman was initiating Interest Based Bargain negotiations that were unprecedented at SSU in their amity and progress, Hurricane Klara was leaking her evaluation on Chapman’s presidency from her offices at Scioto Rental Management. Her evaluation was passed on to me. I was told George Clayton, trustee chair, was one of the intermediaries. Only vanity can explain why she leaked this document when she did, for it threatened to alert me, as union president, among others, that we were about to be screwed, that the trustees and the administration were going along with Interest Based Bargaining in bad faith, that they planned to get rid of Chapman just as soon as they had milked him and Interest Based Bargaining for everything they were worth.

Reynolds had closed her evaluation of Chapman with a quote from Galileo. “You cannot teach people anything. You can only help them discover it within themselves.” I too can easily look up famous quotes, but I find another more appropriate Galileo quote, the gender of which I will change to suit my purposes. “I have never met a woman so ignorant that I couldn’t learn something from her.”

I had been warned by faculty with more experience than I had, that I and the union were making a mistake in trusting trustees like Reynolds by entering into Interest Based Bargaining. Because I had faith in the honesty and ability of Chapman, I went along, and lived to regret it. I even wrote a very positive account of our bargaining experience in the NEA journal Thought & Action  (
http://www2.nea.org/he/heta99/s99p139.pdf ), but that was before I had discovered the depths of dishonesty and incompetence that characterizes the people in control of Portsmouth and SSU.

Below is the cover letter that accompanied Reynolds’ evaluation of Chapman. Notice the line, “We are in the mist [sic] of union negotiation [sic] and should present a united front.” She was in a mist, all right, the mist of ignorance and prejudice that political hacks operate in and that SSU has been cursed with from its beginning. Something Professor Kathleen Simon wrote (June 3, 2001) in response to a letter from Reynolds has relevance. “I don’t know what your intention was when you wrote your letter,” Simon wrote Reynolds, “but after reading it, I am even more fully entrenched in my belief that letting political appointees run a university is a really bad idea.” With a political appointee as chair of the trustees, and with negotiations looming, I forecast a perfect storm, with Hurricane Klara right at the eye of it.
