Good News!

Dear Friends,

Hannabelle is going to stand TRIAL for calling Jim D'Angelo "arrogant"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Like trying to keep sex offenders away from daycare and little old ladies is a crime...)

I can't wait!

I'll finally get to meet Peter Freeman (and his colleagues!) You remember Peter. He's the one suing me for "embarrassment".

And I will FINALLY have a chance to SPEAK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's going to be a great trial.

After two years of this Mickey Mousing around, we can finally get down to the business of the Truth. Why THEY want a trial, I can't imagine. But ME? I will finally have MY day in court!

I'll tell you more soon. I just wanted to let you know that I'm very busy preparing the evidence for my trial.

(Oh, and the book I'm writing is progressing quite well. Who'da thunk it?)

Let's Play Keep-Away! Shall we?

This is a message to my neighbors in and around Onamia. You know who you are. I hope you're reading this.

I live on a private road. Unless you have business down here, please respect my privacy and stay away.

You want to go for a walk?
You feel like jogging?

Don't come here. There's all sorts of alternatives. The Soo Line. Kathio Park. The new track at the high school. Larry Milton Road. Highway 169... All sorts of places to run.

Wanna borrow a cup of sugar? Don't come here. I'm out of sweetness.

You want to get yelled at? You want confrontation? Sure, come down my road. You'll meet me. It won't be pleasant. I assure you.

Does it offend you when I tell your kid to find someplace else to deal his drugs late at night? Then keep him away.
Does it bother you when I ask you to not run towards my house from the direction of the Academy? Then run the other way.
Do I offend you simply because I don't want you or your "wonderful" kids in my life and have made no bones about it?

Of course I do. I'm Hannabelle. I offend everyone.

And if it keeps you away from here, I'm more than happy to offend you.

You put 94 sex offenders down the street.

I have to live with that.

And now you have to live with my reaction to people - strangers - "going for a walk" or "just jogging" down my private dead end road.
I suggest you keep your distance. I'm not very friendly anymore.

Of course, nobody can stop you if, out of all the miles and miles of roads you just HAVE to come down this particular quarter mile. After all.... it's a free country. Right?

Yeah. Right. Just keep telling yourself that.

Convicted Felon Paul Smith Goes to Prison Today

Former Mille Lacs Academy Executive Director Paul Lynn Smith
who was convicted last month in Oklahoma Federal Court on four counts of embezzlement, fraud, theft, and lying to Federal Authorities was denied bond while he appeals the guilty verdict that sentenced him to four 27 month prison terms - to run concurrently.

According to court documents, Smith was supposed to turn himself over to the Federal Marshall by noon today.

Smith argued that since he lied to Federal Authorities while in Minnesota, there was a question of venue. He also claimed he was not a "flight risk" and that his motion was not an attempt to delay serving time in Federal prison.

The Honorable Judge Robin Cauthron denied Smith's motion to avoid prison time until after the completion of his appeal. Here is her decision:

"Because Defendant cannot demonstrate either a substantial question or entitlement to
a reduced sentence his Motion must be denied. For the reasons set forth herein, Defendant’s
Motion for Order Staying Execution of Judgment and Granting Release Pending Appeal
(Dkt. No. 48) is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 3rd day of March, 2010."
