if he ran a legit business he would owe way more than 89,000 in comp and more than that in taxes logging has the highest comp rate adveraging around 40-50 cents on the dollar most loggers cut corners and use contractors that have there own business and logging licenses but russell truckings employees are ex cons that dont even have driver licenses or CDLs Russ Bowen really needs be investigazted from his bank records to his insurance coverage to insurance fraud the county needs to do there research

I wonder if Hoppy Krecheval from WCHS radio would be intersted in this story? At times I think Hoppy dislikes a THIEF and LIAR more than I do.

If Kent Carper doesn't care then maybe we'll just have to take it to the airwaves.

Perhaps he should be investigated for his prior activies, he stole appox 250,000 dollars in timber from landowner in Boone Co WV in 09-10. He also was alleged to have been involved in recruiting locals from Boone Co to burn equipment of a rival logging operation. State Fire Marshals office has a report and the investigator told me it was the most open and shut case of arson he had seen in his 20+ year career. Strangely the Boone Co deputies in charge of investigation dropped the case after going on a paid hunting trip w Bowen to Montana. Also look into his logging operation at Big Creek near Gauley Bridge where Bowen cut timber that wasn't his and removed (stole)a drainage pipe from Massey Coals impoundment damn causing it to collapse and letting the silt run into Big Creek. Also investigate his accident w Timbco 430 Feller Buncher and insuing insurance fraud. Easy to bust this guy if someone would just go to his home and look into Big Horn sheep and Rocky Mt goats taken illegally from Montana! Gots lots more on him but don't expect anything to happen as hes known to buy his way out of trouble.

I called the Hoppy Kercheval show this past friday and was put on hold for their vent friday where you can say and vent on anything you please. as soon as I stated that i was upset with Kent Carper for not following up on Russ Bowen and his Coonskin deal Hoppy immediately hung up on me and would not let it air.

no apology or reason at all he just cut me off when I mentioned Russ and Coonskin.

I'm not finished yet I promise you that as a matter of fact i havent't even began yet.

Kent Carper is going to explain to each and every citizen in Charleston as to why he has a hard on for Russ.

I mean is it love or just a man crush.

stay tuned!

Russ Bowen is and always has been a dweeb.
A pampered kid. In Horace Mann, he was called "Mr. Unibrow."
One of my best friend's daughter admitted how he paid her and a guy to burn houses down that he owned for insurance.
They were teens.
He was an adult.
Until, Charleston/Kanawha County finally go after him for his crimes (instead of the wealthy protecting the wealthy), there is no justice here.
That is sad since the Charleston Police Department is one of greatest in the world!

And when his father had the Pharmacy on MacCorkle Avenue in the early 80's and had the game room.
There were many pedophiles there that hit on us teens.
When we complained, we were told then just don't come back.
That says alot, huh?
Money ruled.
He learned from the worst.

I love it when people assume they know so much about something and their facts are not accurate. He did a job that Coonskin hired him to do. If he were illegally timbering, I would have thought that the directors of the park would have stopped him before the job was completed.

This guy has been doing this for 20 yrs. Back in the 90's he was cutting timber on an adjoining parcel and I made sure he stayed there. He did get me by knocking out a concrete monument. Ripped of the property owner never paid them anything. I saw sick Dougie Brown on his ass and his whole family will broke in less than two weeks.
