In 2001, I sat on a jury in Judge Gray’s courtroom. The case was a civil one against a nursing home in a wrongful death suit. After the jury was picked, Judge Gray was giving us our instructions. In doing so she informed us that it was very rare for a jury in her courtroom to find a defendant not guilty and she assumed we would do the same. The jury found the nursing home not at fault. At the conclusion of the trial, she expressed her disappointment in our decision and told us that she thought we were better than that. She expressed sentiment for the defendant, and the expense the family had spent. The evidence was conclusive. The defendant was NOT guilty.

Editor’s Note: Judge Twyla Gray has conducted numerous unjust trials. The US~Observer fully intends on making her name a household name across this country and not a good one. America’s major problem is not terrorism from the Middle East, it is terrorism from certain members of our very own legal system like Judge Gray. Gray and others of her ilk must be removed from the bench and our legislators drastically need to enact legislation to protect the average citizen from the current, highly predatory legal system.
Something Is Fishy
I have a few questions about the Deer Creek Ranch. I understand that Western Rivers Conservancy recently purchased the ranch, and that SFI and SOU will apparently be procuring the ranch from Western Rivers Conservancy.
The last information I have is that the Deer Creek Ranch issue is still in litigation (a trial date coming up in December of 2006). If this is true, how was the ranch given clear title so that Western Rivers Conservancy could purchase it???
And, further, how is it that SFI and SOU can be making plans (and are already in operation) to offer seminars, etc. at the ranch site??
And, should Dave Toler’s involvement in the ranch be any cause for concern in the upcoming election for Position 1 of the Josephine County Board of Commissioners race??
Something looks fishy to me – Does it to you??
Editors Note: Western Rivers did recently and Siskiyou Field Institute (SFI) and Southern Oregon University (SOU) might be procuring the ranch and they might not. I don’t know if we can consider that the ranch has clear title given the fact that there has been numerous corrupted court rulings regarding the ranch and a whole bunch of racketeering that preceded this whole mess and which is on-going. If SFI and SOU are still proceeding to offer seminars, etc. at the ranch site they must not be reading the US~Observer. This fraud and racketeering scheme is far from over. I met with Dave Toler over his and SFI’s involvement and he answered all my questions honestly. Toler had little to nothing to do with the actual purchase. The Director of SFI made the deal with the Director of Western Rivers Conservancy and she mistakenly trusted in the Western Rivers Director without seeking legal council early on in their deal making. It all likelihood SFI, Western Rivers and SOU will be added to the victim’s list. I don’t expect this issue to harm Toler’s race for Position 1 of the Josephine County Commissioners race and something is extremely fishy Cheryl.

Oklahoma Courts Unjust
To the editor;
Hello, my name is Juanella Clark and I live in Blanchard, Oklahoma just outside of Oklahoma City. I too have seen first handed what the Oklahoma County DAs office, the lawyers and the judges do to innocent people. If you think Ryan Wonderly’s case is the only one like it, I am sorry to say that you are wrong. We also have received a similar out come on our case. I would like to give you a few of the facts in hopes that you will look into our case. My future husband Kenneth Woods DOC # 488413 was sentenced on Feb 4, 2004 to a 17 year sentence for 2 counts of rape and 2 counts of sodomy. Our lawyer, the famous Irven Box (i.e.: O.J. Simpson trial and the Oklahoma City Bombing) told us a very similar story as Ryan’s lawyers did. Plead or get 2 life sentences. Judge Jerry D Bass also said in our review that he gave a young man 360 years the day before so we should be happy he was only giving us 17. He also said that he should give more because he had known someone for 52 years that had been abused and has never fully recovered from the abuse.
There are many problems in our case; 1st- the Mid West City police department never questioned anyone else in this case. There was another man living in the house at the same time. 2nd- the child has changed her story several times as well as the mother. We have interviews with the victims own family that says she has been sexually abused before Kenneth came to know her mother. She has also accused 2 other people of the same thing word for word. We have a babysitter that told investigators about how this child acted before Kenneth was in the picture. She was taken out of 2 daycares because she was doing sexual acts to other children before Kenneth knew her. There is no evidence that any abuse happened at the hands of Kenneth. Kenneth is innocent of these charges and I would like the opportunity to send you the information that I have about this case.
Kenneth has 2 young sons that need him home. Up until all of this happened he was employed by Wal-Mart & Buy For Less Grocers as a manager. Please help us bring an innocent man home. No one should have to go through what we have had to. Something has to be done about the DA, the lawyers and the judges that are running this kangaroo court system. Melody Wonderly has spoken to me about someone from your office coming to Oklahoma City. I am contacting others that I know that have been through the same thing so that you may see how out of control it is. I am not saying that everyone is innocent but the innocent are not being heard just sentenced. Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you soon.
May God continue to bless you and your work.
Editor’s Note: Hang in there Ms. Clark. We know how bad the legal system is in and around Oklahoma City and we will be arriving shortly.
I am a senior citizen
To the editor;
During the Clinton Administration I had a very good job that paid a great salary. I took numerous vacations and had several vacation homes.
Since President Bush took office, I have watched my entire life change for the worse. I lost my job. I lost my two sons in that terrible Iraqi War. I lost my homes. I lost my health insurance. As a matter of fact I lost virtually everything and became homeless. Adding insult to injury, when the authorities found me living like an animal, instead of helping me, they arrested me. I will do anything to see that Senator Kerry and Senator Kennedy get their way and a Democrat is back in the White House in 2008. Bush has to go.
Editor’s Note: While Saddam Hussein probably did not send this to us, we found it worthy to be included as a bit of comic relief in our “Letters to the Editor.”
False Rape Charge
Dear US Observer;
Thanks for your solving our severe problem over our son Bill. We knew he was innocent but just could not get the needed evidence. To be charged with such an embarrassing crime was almost more than we could take. Our faith in God got us through the past 2 years and now that the false rape charges have been dropped, thanks to Edward Snook, we can go on with our lives. We will never forget you and neither will Bill or his two wonderful daughters. Bill is planning on moving in the near future and he will be starting his life over in a location where his reputation isn’t tarnished. Thanks again!!!

To the Editor;
About fifteen years ago I was jury member. It was over a matter that should not have come to court and so the district attorney went for resisting arrest because there was no reason for the arrest. The judge advised us the jury that we were to make a ruling on whether or not the man had resisted arrest. He was asleep in his bed in his room and the police came in without justifiable cause and arrested him and he did resist a little. Then he went with them without further resistance, no one was injured and he admitted to this in his written statement. At the time of the trial the man resided in another state and there was a public defender representing him at the trial. This event had happened more than a year before. Following the judges directions we found the man guilty after about fifteen minutes of studying the facts. We all agreed that the police really had no reason to be in the mans room and we also agreed that someone coming into a persons room and waking them and arresting them is very likely to cause at least some resistance. I have felt sad and guilty for participating in this farce ever since it occurred. Immediately after this happened I discovered Jury Nullification and thought that it could have caused the charges to be thrown out.
WHAT I WANT TO KNOW. I have jury duty coming up in about two months. If I am chosen for a trial and find myself in similar position and am serving is it permissible to ask for a explanation of the jury nullification law during deliberation? Is it acceptable to have laws brought to the attention of jury members by a fellow member? For instance at the request of a juror or at the request of the jury does the court have to provide copies of the written laws for the jury to review? Can the jury request the aid of legal interpretation of the laws? Are there books I might read to learn more about this and of case law pertaining to this?
Editor’s Note: The best source on jury nullification can be found on the web. Just do a search on the subject and you will find an abundance of information. As for bringing the subject up in court, I wouldn’t advise doing so as no judge in the State of Oregon or anywhere else as far as I know is going to allow such a thing. You should be able to bring it up and you should be able to hear all evidence in any case, but if that were allowed our corrupt justice system would lose the stranglehold it has over all people. Everyone should use jury nullification and simply keep it to themselves, especially in the State of Oklahoma!
Open Letter To Hardy Myers
I am attaching a copy of the letter I sent you on July 23, 2005, detailing the unprecedented criminal abuse I have been subjected to, up to the date of that letter, for exposing the open judicial corruption involved in the attempted theft of property in Deschutes County, Oregon belonging to Patricia Wishon her son Jason Wheeler and I. I am also enclosing, for your review and immediate attention and action, the three letters I have sent to Deschutes County Sheriff Les Stiles in the past two years seeking his assistance in stopping the corruption. Also enclosed is the reply letter sent to one of your Assistant Attorney Generals Michael Bell from Patricia Wishon detailing the outrageous treatment she has suffered at the hands of corrupt attorneys and judges in Deschutes County, Oregon. Also enclosed is the Federal Civil Rights and Racketeering complaint Patricia Wishon her son Jason Wheeler and I have filed naming those attorneys, judges and other public officials engaged in the unbelievable criminal judicial ab
use Wishon, Wheeler and I have endured for standing up and speaking out about our victimization.
On August 3, 2006 I returned the telephone call of your Assistant Attorney Generals Thomas Castle. His call had been in compliance with the Oregon Rules of Civil Procedure requiring the parties to confer. I told him I was most anxious to confer and asked to meet with him at his earliest opportunity. He cut short my attempt to arrange a meeting. I attempted to remind him that he was a sworn Assistant Attorney General who had taken an oath to uphold the constitution and the rights of we citizens of Oregon to “equal protection” and “due process” of law. He refused to talk to me and hung up the phone before I finished speaking. I was surprised by the abrupt and rather rude behavior of Mr. Castle given your recorded message when I called your office. In your recorded message you identify yourself and then instruct the caller to notify your office if they have knowledge of corruption in the community. Accordingly I am following your instructions and reporting again to you the very serious and dangerous level of corruption in Deschutes County involving both the Sheriff’s office and the court system.
Hardy we have known each other over 30 years. I not only sent you the July 23, 2005 letter but personally confronted you after a Senate hearing a few years ago and handed you documents detailing the unprecedented criminal abuse I had suffered at the hands of the Oregon judicial system, up to that time, for exposing the corruption in the Oregon court system. I am enclosing for your review a copy of the picture of me handing you that information. I am once again asking for a meeting with you, or one of your senior deputies, to discuss what steps can be immediately taken to terminate the intolerable corruption that now exists in the Oregon judicial system.
