Washington Court of Appeals, Division I. Justices just bankrupted the City of Gold Bar rules in favor of criminals over honest taxpaying citizens

Bad news for Gold Bar taxpayers. Today, the Court of Appeals rules in favor of City of Gold Bar after a long seven year access to our public records battle. For over seven years, Mayor Joe Beavers stole over $1,000,000.00 from the City’s water fund to cover litigation. Last week the Gold Bar city council member Lee Hodo stated that the city will be forced to raise water rates significantly, presumably to cover up Mayor Beavers theft of the City’s enterprise funds.
In 2014, the Washington State Auditor’s Office cited Beavers for the missing $200,000.00, but according to one former council member, ” Crystal Hill was stealing a lot.” Nothing new there; when’s a criminal always a criminal.
John Pennington, prime suspect in a child rape case ( Cowlitz County, WA- 1992). Further public records from King County documented that Pennington was taking naked showers with a six year Old little girl with the witness declaring under oath to this.
With no end in sight to the public records suits now for certain starting next week, perhaps “high as a fuckin kite ” new Mayor Linda Loen will also be reduced to stealing from the City’s water fund to cover up Michael Kenyon’s involvement in hiding John Pennington rape of a 5 year old child ( Kelso), and Pennington’s criminal assault of his pregnant wife ( Duvall Redmond District Court).
Crimes that Div I continued to cover up for good ole Michael Kenyon, as Kenyon Disend’s attorney Meadowcraft was the Special Prosecutor assigned to prosecute Pennington (2008-2009) for punching and kicking a pregnant woman just three weeks before her deliverly.
In late 2014, during our investigation we discovered that John E Pennington was using a USPS Post Office in Duvall Washington to exchange bribes with a convicted killer named Mark Plivilech. Mark Plivilech is the partner of a WA State Bar hearing officer attorney Lin O’Dell ( who was cited by Judge Monasmsith for stealing from a vulnerable adult in Stevens County in Dec 2014). Plivilech and O’Dell have connections to the Russian mafia.
Lin O’Dell, John E. Pennington, and Mark Plivilech have refused comment. But if they do, their comments will be posted without redaction ( so long as it’s not threatening). Until then, “silence is golden.”
Then last week one of readers sent us a picture of the man named C. Fleck ( Spokane) who tried to run me off the road in Monroe last October (2014). This man is also connected to Lin O’Dell and another Spokane attorney who shares an office with O’Dell at 1312 Monroe St, Spokane WA, and has a past prior conviction for stealing cars and distribution of drugs in Montana and transporting them across state lines. More to come on that story once public records become available.
In each case, attorney Michael Kenyon covered up John E. Pennington crimes, amounting to hiding a pedophile. I suspect if this were his daughter that was raped by John Pennington he might have thought twice, but it wasn’t.
In July 2009, Gold Bar’s then Mayor Joe Beavers said to another council member ” We have the Courts locked up!” Well this does appear to be true, but the Court’s decision does not stop anyone from filing a whole new lawsuit. One is actually already written and shall be filed next Tuesday.
From the Court’s decision, it appears that the Court seemed to be swayed by two declarations written by criminals, Laura Kelly ( caught stealing from the City of Gold Bar in August 2012 *) and Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg), citing for fraud by WA State for submitting fraudulent claims and passing bad bank checks.
At the time I requested access to records from the City of Gold Bar ( where I reside and pay taxes), Crystal D. Berg ( Crystal Hill Pennington) was charged with passing bad checks up here in Snohomish County, Washington. She lied on her Financial Disclosure forms to the Washington State Public Disclosure Commission and acted as Snohomish County DEM employees attorney in John Pennington’s and Rick Kammerer’s divorce proceedings.
Crimes Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) continued while she was the sitting Mayor of Gold Bar, and from WA State unemployment records, crimes she continues as of 2014.
According to our counsel, RCW, felonious crimes make one not only not eligible for public office but also not eligible to vote in Washington.
However, Crystal Berg didn’t have to worry about those silly fraudulent claims and bank checks she filed and passed, or her fraudulent unemployment claims ( which amounted to court judgments against her), or Laura Kelly and her fraudulent CLE classes reimbursement check cashing scheme either, because she had been sleeping with Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon while at the same time she was engaged in an extra-martial affair Snohomish County’s hidden pedophile John Pennington. Out of respect for Gold Bar’s former Chief, we won’t elaborate on her relationship with him in 2008 ( some things are better left private).
Beavers, Hill, and Pennington are being sued for RICO violations, which we believe amount to criminal RICO as well. With each sunrise, the Penningtons’ crimes mount inside public records. The criminal conduct involving agency employees is deep, so stay tuned as a new lawsuit with new updated facts and new defendants, including several employees of the WA State Bar, will be filed shortly.
Reading over 1.5 million emails so far, we know a hell of lot more, and thanks to Joe Beavers thousands of public records from Gold Bar were accidently released to another Gold Bar resident.

In August 2012*, Gold Bar’s city clerk Laura Kelly was fired for stealing from the City of Gold Bar. Her crimes were actually video taped by the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office inside the Clerk’s office here in Gold Bar. As a clerk treasure Laura Kelly’s crimes warranted a felon conviction under Washington law.
But instead Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers obstructed justice, covered up crimes, and gave her a reference for another job at Monroe’s Goodwill. A job she again has access to money. RICO violations.

Unfortunately for Gold Bar taxpayers, the Court of Appeals, Div. I, continued the bleeding ruling for the City of Gold Bar, and new lawsuits will be filed each month until the City complies with the Public Records Act.
Public records that we received from the Washington State Bar premised it disciplinary proceeding against attorney John Scannell for stated that he may have missed one email when the WSBA requested he produce attorney-client protected emails. But in this case, the Court gave public officials/criminals a pass to evade liability. Perhaps Supreme Courty Justice Stevens will do what she did in Scannell v. WSBA?
As of today, our pot smoking mayor Linda Loen is a ” high as a fuckin kite” at every city council meeting and is named as a defendant in a RICO suit.
Taxpayers can thank the Court of Appeals for ruling in favor of criminals instead of honest non-criminal taxpayers. The City’s bleeding will continue as new lawsuits will be filed by next weekend, with more suits to follow.
