Is this the lying no good thief I saw on the news who cut down those beautiful trees at Coonskin park and then sold them? if so, you could see he was telling a lie when he was confronted. Yea" he acted as though he was doing the city a favor, yet all at the same time he was stealing. Shame on him.

He looked, sounded, acted and is nothing more than a....

LOW BUDGET CON-ARTIST

I hope the city goes after him legally as much as possible by the law.

According to the Gazette he owes in excess of $89,000.00 in workers comp and over $23,000.00 in tax liens. The man lost his logging license and is trying to get them back. GHe needs to make restitution to the city and pay his debts before even thinking of getting his license back.

The man who runs the Parks should also be reprimanded for allowing this con artist to get away with it. There was absoloutely no oversight on this man.

I wonder why he was allowed to get away with this?

Hmmm!

Someone needs to folllow the money!!!!
Get the whole story

He's no more a Con Artist than you or I. Nothing in writing forbid him to sell those trees. And how do you know they were not hollow spots in them? You do not. Therefore, he was legally ALLOWED to cut that timber. You may need to check your facts. Are you jealous that he has cash to spend and you spend your pitiful lives on Topix? LOL

Even if the trees weren't hollow, the tops were severely damaged and the trees had to come down. What's he supposed to do with all that wood, whittle it down to toothpicks and stock the Coonskin Clubhouse with them? Please.

Please! That low budget con artist knew exactly what he was doing and if he has so much cash floating around then he needs to pay his friggen bills and STOP stealing.
He got caught pillaging and stealing and there's no excuse for it.
Stealing is stealing and a thief is a thief and that low budget dude is both. Hope no one ever uses his services again.
He's one of those guys you don't allow in your home unattended if you get my drift!

Please get your facts straight. His father was indeed a pharmacist, a very well respected one in the community. He was still working when died suddenly of an illness. The Bowen's are an upstanding family. No need to drag the family down because of one bad seed.

I didn't see his fatass at Coonskin this past weekend paying restitution. Is Kent Carper going to let this low-budget thief go scott free?

Come on Danny Jones do something about this thief.

How do you think the lying thief got the job.

Don't count on the politicians. U want this fixed, get the media involved. Do something!

Contact the major networks, they may pick this up and follow the money trail.

yep he stole several acres of timber on Mt. Alpha when he was conning (dating an older wman named Ann); she lost everything she had over him and moved out of state. He got by with stealing that timber, but the people who owned the land didn't pursue him and got away with several thousand dollars. He shuld be behind bars for stealing. He will flirt around with the wmen and they fall for him. His daughter is a drug addict - she be in rehab or jail. We will see how the County handles this big con and our tax dollars.

if you want Russ Bowen in jail investigate him by looking into the Big Horn Sheep and Rocky Mt Goats he poached in Montana. Just stop by his home and look into front door and you can view them. Also investigate 010 Arson matter in burning of a rival logging companys equipment, State Fire Marshall has on record his solicitation of locals from Boone Co do burn the equipment, Strangely the Boone Co deputies whom were investigating the arson dropped the case after going on a paid hunting trip to Montana w Bowen.Dont expect anything to happen people as he will buy his way out of this. He walks on water it seems and nothing sticks to him.

As fat as he is it's amazing he can walk much less on water. Anyway we'll see if Kanawha County Commissioner Kent Carper has any balls or does he have less than Lance Armstrong?

They say any press is good press, we'll Kent Carper is gonna find out.

Like I said is it just a crush or does Kent really have a hard on for that piece of filth Russ Bowen

BTW: Any person that poaches an animal is a cowardly ass punk and from what I just read Russ Bowen is a cowardly ass punk

Funny thing is, if it were me and some dude named Gregory K (that's me) were calling me out I sure as hell would defend myself by getting on here and setting it straight.

I guess that's what separates the men from the boys....doesn't it Russ?

I know nothing of this situation, however, the comment "separates the boys from the men" should never be used when you are running your mouth behind a keyboard. Maybe the more proper verbiage would have been, "separates the boys from the cowards on keyboards." You seem to be all up in this guys business, you call him cowardly, but why is it you haven't approached him face to face Gregory K?

@ least Gregory K doesn't have an anonymous screen name...pretty sure the guy he called out knows who "Gregory K" is! Just saying...seemed legit to me?
