SC: Icecream robber caught: "A man from Bath was arrested for robbing Twisters Ice Cream Shop on 421 in Bath just after 6:45 Saturday night. Witnesses said the suspect walked into the store armed with a gun and demanded money from the employee. He was given an undisclosed amount before being confronted by the owner's son Shannon Labord. The suspect shot at Labord hitting the counter. Labord fired back and chased the suspect while firing several more shots to a near by trailer. 23 year old Joey Taylor was arrested. He is charged with armed robbery, assault and battery with intent to kill and possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime. No one was injured during the incident.

Would-be robber severely beaten after choosing wrong victims: "A burglar who broke into a Lehigh Acres, Florida home wound up bloodied and bruised. The homeowners say he picked the wrong couple to mess with. Deputies say two men broke into the home around 1 a.m. Monday. One of them pointed a gun right at the resident's face while he was still in bed. "He screamed at me, 'Don't move! Don't move!' with vulgarities involved - that wasn't happening in my house. He came to the wrong party," said the victim, who wished to remain unidentified. The victim is a retired special operations officer for the Coast Guard. His fiancé, who was also in bed, is a former maximum security corrections officer. The male victim and one of the suspects got in a fight as they were both trying to get control of the gun. When the victim and the suspect were fighting in the corner of the bedroom, a shot fired from the gun went through the wall, through the medicine cabinet, and right into the bathroom mirror. When that shot was fired, the other suspect ran out of the house. Meanwhile, the victim's fiancé grabbed their own rifle and turned toward the other burglar. She beat him so hard with the gun that the rifle broke in two. Then the male victim got a hold of the suspect's gun. "At that point I was going to take his life and he begged for his life, 'I don't want to die, I don't want to die, please don't kill me. Let me go,'" said the victim. That's when he took the suspect outside and bashed his head into a truck before he ran away."

Ejected shotgun round lets victim get away: "Iowa City police say an accidental ejection of a shotgun round may have allowed a potential shooting victim to get away unharmed. Officers responded to the 900 block of Cross Park Avenue at 3:18 a.m. Thursday after receiving a 911 call that five males jumped out of a van armed with a shotgun, according to a criminal complaint. The victim said William T. Wright, 18, of 2218 Davis St. in Iowa City, brandished the shotgun and pointed it at the victim, according to police. Wright, who also goes by Rudy, then racked the shotgun and was prepared to fire when a round ejected, causing a temporary distraction that allowed the victim to run away, according to police. An independent witness corroborated the victim’s statements, police say. The victim said he believed he would have been shot had the round not accidentally ejected, according to police. Wright was in Johnson County Jail Friday morning on a $10,000 cash-only bond. He faces charges of intimidation with dangerous weapon, a Class C felony, and going armed with intent, a Class D felony.

Gun Control: Sotomayor and citizen authority: “Let me emphasize again as I have over the last several years, that what it is about guns isn’t even about guns. It is about carrying our own burdens in independence from our own public servants. … Senators who intend to grill Sotomayor when the nominee hearings begin in July should be contacted with specific issues to be brought up. This is because gun owners understand that the Second Amendment is a reflection of the overall health of our nation; it is a reflection of whether officials (such as Justices) respect liberty and our little need for the State and how we prefer it that way.”

I am a current resident of All Seasons Mobile Home Park in Deerfield, Ohio. For the past six months I've been fighting a bogus repair charge and a bogus criminal charge. All because of rotten lies told by Carol Foster and Vicki Gilpin of Modern Management Solutions (The management and billing company located in Ravenna, Ohio). Now, they are trying to aquire my paid off home free and clear so they can re-sell it for a huge profit. They have done this sort of thing before with the help of their attorney David Allen Sed. Its become part of their business model. Horrible, but true.

If you want to know how all of this unfolded, please visit either of the following sites:

You can read the entire backround so far, including my sworn statement filed with Portage County Municipal Court, view photos, and learn a few things about the rotten business practices of M.M.S.

Something has to be done. This is what I've chosen to do.
