Attention of City Hall Meeting

I have stood before the Mayor and City Council of Eugene and Springfield, voicing my opinions and suggestions. I never formed a kangaroo court, or a gang in order to go after someone and bring them down.

On January 30, 2016 I attended a City Hall meeting where the sale of Ken Kesey Square was discussed. I did my best to ignore the death threats from friends of Alley Valkyrie who was fighting Zane Kesey for the monument of his father. I read on his facebook how he did not like the homeless and their dogs camping atop the statue of his father making it inaccessible to him. As president of Kesey Production, Zane has brought many great and historic bands to our area. A documentary needs to be made of this historic contribution.  My discovery that Springfield and Eugene were a part of the British Invasion via Hurbert Armstrong and Radio London put the Emerald Valley on the map of Rock History. This is what we should have been focusing on verses the Anarchists who took over the homeless crisis in order to get citizens and their city to focus on them.

When I went to visit my friend, Ed Corbin, I was dismayed to see the tents on 5th. Street. This area was the epicenter of Eugene’s Bohemian enterprises. The New Zone gallery has its roots at the end of the this street that is home to the 5th. Street Market.  The Amtrak station is close by as is The Electric Station. Ed’s ancestors were founders of the Plymouth Brethren from which belief in the Rapture hail. Ed’s sons were musicians.

Here is the video I took of the gauntlet I had to pass through to get to the Mayor. I run into my ex-neighbor, Kevin, who is the King of Chalk. If Alley had spotted me, all she had to do was point me out to a crazy homeless thug, and he could sneak up behind me and stick a knife in my back, then, head to Portland.

I could tell Zane was scared of these violent anarchists who may have threatened him and the Eugene Celebration he operated, then quit. That is Gwendolyn Maeve who was an ally of Alley in taking over Kesey Square and holding a fake art and music happening that would hit up citizens who want to enjoys the First Friday Art Walk and other events. The wanted to replace Kesey Productions.

l smiled when I saw a business man hurry out to the sidewalk and tape off future planters – before they come back! The homeless plague has hurt many businesses downtown. I am sure Mayor Lundberg and Neil Laudati do not want to see tents on Main Street. I have fought against this possibility. I put my neck on the line. Alley Valkyries, Belle Burch, and all members of SLEEPS knew they were PARASITES that were attaching themselves to the Kesey Legacy and knew I could expose them as such. This is why they threatened me.

The homeless are not protesting. They are being USED by every tinhorn activists who drifts into town looking to put a notch on his gun. Disrupting businesses is part of their agenda. I own a registered newspaper in Lane County.

Eric Jackson was handled by the same law firm that took Alley Valkyrie’s case. Both are proud of being cited for trespassing. The woman I was falsely accused of abusing was arrested for trespass with Alley who is a anti-Capitalist Wiccan.  They want the building of new building to stop and monies given to the Homeless Communist Coven. Umbrella Properties will not be happy to learn they rent to people who support people who hate capitalists and terrorize tenants in the name of Law Breakers. Eric shows off his trespassing tickets with an image of a police badge. These are the real criminals who take the law into their own hands. They do not make good neighbors.

What all these people have in common, is, they claim they have been VICTIMIZED by society. My obese neighbors say I abused them, but, they are jumping on the Alleybelle bandwagon. Maybe their attorney will take their case and sue their parents for not doing more to control their eating? They hate to be told “No!” They loathe the individual who stands up to them. Krista, Kim Hafner, and others who pay Umbrella Properties, conspired to drive me out of my dwelling. They did not like me calling the police. It looks like another neighbor wants to get involved.

Eugene’s 5th Street Homeless Tent Campers Claim Protest

Jun 22, 2019

Homeless campers living in a row of tents in downtown Eugene say they are there in protest. The campers object to the lack of shelter in the city center and claim mistreatment by local business owners.

The six tents are positioned in the right-of-way area between the curb and sidewalk—just down the street from 5th Street Public Market.

Eric Jackson lives in a tattered blue pop up tent. He claims Obie Companies, which owns the popular public market, has barred protest campers from the shops.

“The 5th Street Market company has in fact banned anybody that is at this protest. There’s a sign right here behind me. And we are trespassed from the property in advance of doing anything wrong.”

Obie Companies Vice President Casey Barrett says he’s unaware of any denial of access to the 5th Street Market. He also says “homelessness is the single biggest issue in this community.”

The Eugene City Council will decide Monday whether to change an ordinance allowing for trespass charges against people staying in the right of way planting spaces.

The Weaponized Donation

Dear Mayor and members of the City Council of Eugene

I have made a call to the FBI three times in regards to the threats I received from Alley Valkyrie and John Monroe who made up the board of Nightingale who I discovered three days ago received $400,000 dollars from an anonymous donor. In an article in the Eugene Weekly, this donor weaponized his gift. It is a vile Trojan Horse that I believe is the source of threats I received, after meeting a member of SLEEPS in Ken Kesey Square. Belle Burch was surrounded by ex-residents of Whoville, that Jon Ruiz evicted, and who office was raided by members of SLEEPS and OCCUPY. Twelve people were arrested. Councilperson Emily Semple tried to get arrested, but there was not room at the jail. John Monroe, Belle Burch, and Ambrose Holthem-Keathly were arrested.

Several days ago I made a Hate Crime report to the Department of Justice. My neighbor shared Alley Valkyries hateful WANTED poster of me with several of my neighbors who gathered outside my door. One neighbor got on her cellphone and called her boyfriend up, saying he would beat me up. He cam over and said I was a lunatic and needed to be locked up. I didn’t even know his name. I told him and the others I called the police. Ten days ago I made a report to the FBI.

I am asking the City of Eugene to launch an investigation of these matters that has endangered my life, and infringed upon my Civil Rights and Liberties. I own a registered newspaper in Lane County. Several months ago I handed the Mayor of Springfield a proposal to change the name of Franklin Blvd. to Harry Lane, the son of Joseph Lane, who was on the Pro-Slavery ticket with John Breckenridge who fought for the Confederacy. Harry is the opposite of his father.

Several months ago the Ed Ray, the President of Oregon State, gave a new name to a hall named after my kindred, Senator Thomas Hart Benton after a group of histrorians held a tribunal that did not include any of Benton’s kindred. My sister was a world famous artist who married into the Benton family, who founded the State of Oregon. Harry Lane and the Bentons are kin to the famous Hart family.

Because Councilperson Emily is now a part of my family history, I highly suggest she go to the FBI and the Department of Justice, and tell them all she knows about how her compatriots violated my Civil Rights and conducted Hate Crimes against me. I suggest attorney Mary Broadhurst join this elected official because she was witness to the hateful cyber-bullying of me on Alley Valkyrie’s facebook. I now suspect Belle Burch and members of SLEEPS suspected I was the “anonymous donor”. When they found out I was not, and after they read my questioning as to whether SLEEPS was collecting donation in a proper manner, Ms. Valkyrie and other came at me with a viciousness never seen in the anals of POLITICAL ATTACKS! I suspect SLEEPS and Nightingale was considering running a candidate for office after they invaded Jon Ruiz’s office. The IRS needs to look at these matters, because it is possible this anonymous donor contributed to Emily Semple’s campaign. Vickie Nelson should also be questioned.

After a thorough investigation is done, I suggest the City of Eugene adopt a measure that will allow them to oversee all donations made to the homeless. The citizens of Eugene should be told how to properly donate to these people who suffer. There should be a monthly televised news conference, because – WE CARE! We are a Christian Society.

I was going to go over this WEAPONIZED DONATION and point out how the donor names targets. This is an enemies list. What is more vile, is he/she set up competition between homeless help groups who might believe – another $400,000 dollars might be given out. So, they might be doing a special song and dance for BIG BROTHER who might have orchestrated the attacks on me, because, he/she wants to feel good about the HISTORY of his/her good work, and, even make his/her identity know, depending on the press he/she gets.

My newspaper, Royal Rosamond Press was named after my grandfather, and is a registered in Lane County as a business. I am authoring my autobiography titled ‘Capturing Beauty’. The Eugene City Government get to author history. I will have the last word. I will never allow thugs to dictate to me about what I write and publish. Never!

“The donor remains anonymous to keep the focus on the issue not the donor, and to avoid criticism from a business community where some might shame the donation: “Developers don’t want the parents of university students to see all these homeless people. It decreases the property value. They have a lot to gain from sweeping them under the rug.”

Oregon State University President Ed Ray announced Monday new names for three campus buildings after deciding the previous namesakes had racist legacies.

“The names of buildings and places play a very important role in our university.” Ray said. “They speak to the history of OSU, the university’s values and mission, and our efforts to create an inclusive community for all. Names also recognize and honor the positive contributions of those associated with the university.”émont

Eugene Donor Commits $400,000 For New Shelter Site

Article | April 17, 2014 – 1:00am | By Adrian Black

As Eugene city leaders floundered last week in relocating the former residents of the Whoville homeless camp, an anonymous benefactor took up the issue, offering a $400,000 donation to establish a sanctuary on private property.

The pledge came as a direct response to, among general grievances, the unyielding position of City Manager Jon Ruiz and others willing to leave the destitute in limbo. “I wanted to step up,” the donor tells EW, “because I saw the city making an attempt to push these people out. They’re citizens, not strangers.”

A Eugene native with capital to spare from the success of a local family business, the donor says the wealth was a matter of pure chance, adding that a privileged position in society obligates one to prevent a human rights catastrophe when no one else will.

For the donation to be seen through, the money has to be channeled properly through the fiscal sponsorship of a nonprofit organization. This would be accomplished through an existing entity with 501(c)(3) status, such as Opportunity Village Eugene or Community Alliance of Lane County. An alternative could be for SLEEPS (Safe Legally Entitled Emergency Places to Sleep) or the Nightingale Public Advocacy Collective to attain such status — the latter is already pending.

It’s now up to Mary Broadhurst, an attorney and advocate for the unhoused, and others representing the advocacy group Homeless Health Sanctuary, to coordinate sponsorship and fulfill the multiple stipulations attached to this unforeseen act of philanthropy.

“We’re looking to buy private property — a single site for something that goes beyond a 30-person rest stop,” Broadhurst says. “Initially, it would be tents on platforms, but it would transition into micro-housing.”

Semi-permanent occupants would be expected to share the space with those seeking single use overnight stays. The site would also include a health stop, where twice a week residents and passers-through could be evaluated, presumably by Occupy Medical or like volunteers. An information station would be developed to point the weary toward free meals and other community resources. The donor put a specific focus on the site needing to be self-sustaining beyond land purchase and startup costs.

The donor remains anonymous to keep the focus on the issue not the donor, and to avoid criticism from a business community where some might shame the donation: “Developers don’t want the parents of university students to see all these homeless people. It decreases the property value. They have a lot to gain from sweeping them under the rug.”
