Does anyone have proof where the money from the fish fry went? Does anyone have receipt or proof where the money goes after one of these affairs? Who do I speak to so I can see their records proving it went to the schoolhouse repairs?

If this is a sample of people that are in your " friends" group, no wonder you do not have many active members.
Why are you so angry. You sound like a real evil person. People like you show your true colors, when they are asked for the truth. They like to control people, and I think you get very mad when you can't. You are so vindictive you cannot even post an intelligent response to a legitimate answer. And for tour information the term "hoe" is described in dictionary a tool for working which maybe you shoud try to do.
You sound like a real upstanding person Ha-Ha. get a life.

First of all it is really entertaining when people write such horrible things about others when they can't even spell correctly. OK - you did not go to the schoolhouse or any other schoolhouse cause you can't spell! Man get an education - course the other clue of uneducated was that you called her a hoe'--------- grow up! My God get an education - you couldn't write a book you can't even spell the words believe, check and thief correctly! Now who is the idiot!

FYI - Jailbirds from the Oldham County Jail are doing work release work on the old schoolhouse - FYI - That means the work is free!
FYI - If I were anyone who has given any money to this project I think I would check out the so-called deed - it was Notarized by the person who is related to one of the people that signed it! Check out the signatures and the dates - the dates were signed by the same person. A real Notary would not have taken part in this activity. Is this legal?
FYI - Once you read the deed - you might stop writing the checks - why give money to a project that has the potential after 5 years to go back to the private owner. What a way to get your property renovated!

Now that sure is an original name ! Did you come up with that yourself ! Did you have brain freeze ..forgot witch name you used last ? If you were a notary you would know that the only thing that is notarized is the actual signature but once again you choose to show your ignorance .Thank You ! Only your sick twisted minds would try to make a negative out of a positive for the school house. You are so hung up about not getting any money for your book that you are trying to destroy Westport Community .It won't happen, people here are smart...they see you for what you are, they can tell by your own comments ,they know the person that DONATED the school house . Get a real life..peddle your book in Florida..did you even keep a copy? Your the one that needs to work .

Perhaps you would like pages from the court records posted..nice comment to mom and kids , I guess you figured how to change your address for your comments..fact1 in Louisville and fact1 in Souderton, Pa.. Are you for real ?? not ! Just post your New Port Richey ,Fl and be done ,Just live your pathetic life in Florida .
What diference does it make what Diane Sanders or her ex-fiance did? The fact remains that you can't answer a direct question. This is the way you always do. WHY or WHAT are you afraid of. People will know what you are one of these days. You are the one that started this. You sold her book or profit. FACE IT...... You are a user and think if you do something it is different. You also stab people in the back. Why is it, nothing is ever your fault. The same people you are using now will find you out. If someone does not agree with you, lies are made up about them, but most people consider the source. Just like you have the gall to talk about other people the way they keep their property. Isn't that a little like the pot calling the kettle black....... No pun intended, or maybe it is. Why don't you get a life a quit trying to run every ones life. I would think you have enough to do to take care of yor own problems. You really are a joke.......

The truth to the gossip about my life (like who even cares)is this. As for the bankruptcy I had taken my book off the market in 1998. I wasn't making any money on the book since then I had no reason to report this to the bankrupt court. I had no ideal that a thief in Westport was selling my books. As for selling my home in Westport my property did not have a lien on it and the property was in my name only. I had the right to sell and move if I wanted. As for who saved my life it was a truck driver that came upon the accident and called 911 and reported my location. It was the ambulance workers and doctors that saved my life. As for why I am talking about Westport it is because everyone there needs to be aware of a thief and a liar that took a book I wrote and decided to put it back on the market after I had said NO to that ideal. The book was reprinted and done very poorly. Yes the wording and spelling and information is wrong. This is why I took it off the market..The person reprinting them for me did an awful job and I simply told them I did not want any more made. So there you now know the truth now can we all get back to what matters to a small town. People are being cheated I know that for a fact because I have told what has happened to me and I live in Florida. The poor people in Westport are either too scare or don't care that this person is also cheating them and taking control of their town. Don't let this happen people, learn from what has happen to me. Stand up and ignore a person like this before the town is separated any farther.

YEAH for the Oldham County Release program!! Westport has never looked so beautiful this summer. We can see the pride you take in your work by the beautiful way the park and cemetary look. Thank You sooo much for the great work you do for this community and the hard work you are doing on the school house(New Wedtport Community Center). It is a dirty job and we appreciate you guys. P.S. Thanks for the quick storm clean up of the commons so that the Indian festival was so wonderful. I enjoy visiting Westport and going to the activities they put on and wish them all the best of luck. Yeah for Tammy Alexander for her wonderful job heading River Daze. It was great!!!

Thanks but I guess you have really got the wrong idea about who the Dragonfly is - my B-Day is a long way away! But that was nice anyway! I'm not quite ready to be a year older yet!

And - just for the sake of the public knowing truth. The day of storm it was a man from 18 Mile Creek (may not want me to post his name)and a few volunteer fire personel and some other Westport Caregivers that cleaned up the mess at the Commons - and then the county or state came with their trucks and hauled off the debris so it would be nice for the Native American Festival! Not sure if it was the state or county. I was there and saw who showed up to move the trees out of the road in front of the Commons. THANKS TO THOSE WHO JUMPED IN TO HELP ! Thanks Tammy for connecting us with the Red Cross and getting MRE'S brought to Westport when the power was out! That is what the real Westport Community is all about helping each other as a positive team!
All of the name calling and hateful postings are so done by the same person or group! Everyone knows this!
I am all for the work release program with the jail! It is a great program as long as it is supervised and monitored! Thanks to the prisoners for their hard work at gutting the schoolhouse. That work being free should allow more money to be spent on a professional to do the renovating.
The improvements at the Westport Park has been done by the Parks & Recreation and Fish & Wildlife -------- NOT the prisoners. They did make a ladder for the dock - the prisoners. Also - I witnessed in the summer the two ladies that put together River Daze working on flower beds and also saw Tammy Alexander unloading mulch around the beds and signs the day before River Daze. Way to go Cindy & Tammy!
There are a lot of people doing things to try and improve our community and it is a shame that there are a SMALL HANDFUL that just can't do things the right way! But if we can focus on the good - realize that when you examine what has been done and by who - and you see the great things and then take a look at the rest - you know exactly who to stand behind and who to trust. Its a bigger group!

I purchased your book in at the Westport General Store in about 1998. I then met you at a Friends of Westport fundraiser, for the school restoration. You had donated your books to help in the cause. I am totally confused as to the slander brought forth. If you were helping the cause for you beloved Westport, why now are you turning around and bringing slander on the people you worked with? There are now laws for internet slander. I suggest that you retreat and retire. There are no more books. It is history. Quit slandering the very people that are saving Westport. The school house was once the heartbeat of our town, and it will be again because of the hard work of The Friends of Westport. You seemed like a nice caring person. You even said you would take me to some of the places you wrote about in your book. Your book should be a legacy to what is good in Westport. Give up the hate. We need positive comments about this wonderful place to live. It is a gem and a treasure, and really hasn't changed much from the days that you described. People I know are truly caring, and it is a wonderful place to live.
Peace.

I have never been in the Friends of Westport. I have NEVER donated any books. I have no ideal what you are talking about. Why is the schoolhouse more precious then the Baptist Church they tore down, that was a heartbeat also. I have no hate, but as you can tell from some writing on topix that the hate is coming from the people that is doing wrong not from me. I am simply stating the facts. You can choose to not believe them...later you will see the truth. It is not slander to speak the truth. This whole thing began with me simply requesting for no one to ever buy my Westport Kentucky book again. It was a very simple request. No hate, no slander that was created by the FEW people in Westport that is upset because they have been caught doing wrong. Lecture them not me.

I think you need to join the Friends of New Port Richey and concentrate on your life there. Do something positive for your current community.

You don't even realize that the person who wrote the comments from Westport Report is not the person who wrote the book.
You and your "friends" are so hung up on running people down who see the truth, that you blame the wrong people and repeat things that are not even true. The person who is Westport Report chose that name because they write the truth - it is "the" Westport Report.

The point about the notary was that a professional would not notarize something that important if they were related to the parties involved. Thats just common sense - it has to do with ethics - look that one up in the dictionary.

Do not buy the Westport Kentucky book from anyone. This book was reprinted very bad it now has incorrect information. You can not trust anyone to do the right thing anymore. I am the writer, but I did not have anything to do with the copies that was being sold without my knowledge for the last three years. The book being sold now by thieves is not worth reading. Do not waste your money.

This is the last time I will ever come back to this site. Write whatever you want about me. Continue with your lies and gossip I will not know anything about it. Have fun ... I'll be at the beach thinking about anything except a small town that don't care what happens to them.
