Where were the parents? Why was a three year old not under the supervision of an adult? The sister is a hero for getting help and turing her over to get her face out of the water, but it is not the responsiblity of a 10 year old to properly supervise and care for this toddler. Unfortunately, these children are not supervised by adults most of the time, and it is a 10 year old that watches over both her younger brother and younger sister. A Big Thank You to Doug, and all of the volunteer Fire/Resuce in our town! We greatly appreciate all that you do!
First off You want to come on over to my house and say that and secondly where were we? I will tell ya where we were One in the garage and I was in the house with our infant! And as for watching her younger brother heavens forbid she watches her younger siblings play while in the back yard and 3rd we watch them out the window just like any other parent.. AN ACCIDENT is an ACCIDENT like the shariff department ruled it if they thought were nelgected our kids they would of called DHS which they did not so why don't you get all the facts before running your mouth off or better yet why not call me And I can set your straight since apprently you are really ignorant to be talking about things you know nothing about boy you can sure talk when your on the internet lets see you say that to my face. They and I do mean cheyennne and belle were not where they were suspose to be in our back yard they went just a few feet to the church where all the kids play at in my back yard where We can see them.. Since when can't kids play out in their own back yard well we are building a fence so this little ACCIDENT will not happen again.

I'm with the other m-dale parent. I get you can't watch kids all the time. But how many accidents can one familys kids have? At least no where they are! DHS better be involved!
We do the best we can. Ever since I moved back to martensdale nothing but bad luck has happened to my kids.. But like always people like to talk about things they know nothing about.. And OUR KIDS RE WATCHED.. And like I told the other parent.. why not say that to my face since everyone in this town can't mind their own business and talk way too much... We didn't ask for cheyenne to get bit by a brown recluse spider, nor did we ask for her to get harmed while playing at another kids house by their older son.. nor did we ask for some jerk to hit aj on his bike while coming home from a friends house, and we didn't ask for belle to almost die.. and as for DHS We all ready have spoke to them and they said we have the worst luck so mind your own business or better ;yet say that to my face since you seem to like to talk behind peoples back like a coward you know where I live come on over.. OH YEAH.. Incase you didn't know my husband is a Federal Marshall so why not come on over and say that to both of us god pathic thats all you people have to do is to talk s*i* oh wait I forgot this is martensdale nothings changed since I grew up here.. pathic

well about a half a block away. Not just backyard! Maybe since there is so much history with these kids there are to many questions of how again again and again.
Not a half a block away.. God get the fact Straight! THEY WERE IN THE BACK YARD AND MOVED JUST A FEW INCHES TO WHERE THE CHURCH IS WERE THEY CAN BE SEEN OUT OUR WINDOW AND LIKE I SAID THEY WERE BEING WATCHED I GUESS MY KIDS CAN NEVER PLAY OUTSIDE EVER AGAIN SINCE APPRENTLY MY HUSBAND AND I ARE SUCH BAD PARENTS .. OH AND THANK GOD BELLE IS FINE LETS NOT FORGET THAT SOME OF YOU PEOPLE ARE SICK AND PATHIC AND CAN SURE TALK ALOT BEHIND OUR BACKS... NO WONDER THE KIDS AT MSTM ARE SUCH JERKS THEY TAKE AFTER THEIR PARENTS!

I would never wish harm on any child, but I agree that the parent(s) need to be around. As others have pointed out, this is not an isolated incident with this family. As long as I have lived here these children have run all over town without any supervision. Cheyenne used to come over when she was about 6 and her brother A.J. was about 1 1/2 or 2, and we live on the other side of town. If they were in the back yard, why is it that the neighbor two houses down was the one to reply, and not the mother? DHS definitely needs to get involved to find out why the neighbor responded instead of the mother.
ok lets explain this again what the news didn't tell you was that my husband was already outside when it happened and met doug at the site of the accident..and I came out side with in a second of cheyenne coming inside and I'm a trained EMT and as for cheyenne going some where when she wasw 6 she went across the street to jordans house and AJ didn't go anywhere..We didn't live in this house then.. My kids are not the only ones that go all over town I see kids all the time that are riding their bikes and playing but after this little indecent now my kids can't go anywhere their back yard no where and cheyenne can't go to her friends by her house now cause of course people in Martensdalel are nosy and will call DHS since thats all people want to do in this town.why not say these things to our faces instead of behind our backs since you seem to know sooo much about my family which you don't
OK LETS EXPLAIN THIS AGAIN WHICH THE NEWS DID NOT TELL YOU WAS I WAS OUT SIDE WITH IN A SECOND MY HUSBAND WAS OUT THERE AS DOUG SHOWED UP HE WAS OUTSIDE ALREADY AND I AM A TRAINED EMT DOUG HAD JUST STARTED CPR SO THATS WHERE I WAS RIGHT THERE WITH MY CHILD AND AS FOR AJ.. I DON'T REMEMBER AJ EVER LEAVING WITH CHEYENNE ANYWHERE WHEN HE WAS 2 AND I SAY AGAIN WHY NOT CALL ME AND SAY THESE THINGS TO OUR FACE INSTEAD OF TALKING BEHIND OUR BACKS LIKE WHITE TRASH.

this is about a 10 year old and neighbor doing something wonderful and great!it is not about the parents and it is sad that people only want to fine fault and not look at the good! I think it is great that a 10 year old new what to do and that the neighbor next door was outside! Geart job Cheyenne and Doug!
You are soo right it's about cheyenne and doug being a hero not what me and my husband were doing.. who was outside when the accident happened.. and yes cheyenne and my kids have the worst luck.. we really do no matter what we do these things keep happening.. we watch our kids and have 3 locks on each door to keep belle from opening the door and getting out of the house with out someone with her..We have the best doctors for cheyenne.. and the best doctors for AJ oh and by the way I have 4 kids not 3.. shakes head* I just can not believe you people. I guess when the 12 year old girl got raped by another kid in town I guess thats ok right because it wasn't her parents fault that she snuck out at night right.. But don't worry after this my kids are not going anywhere with out me or my husband no one has tried to commit sucide.. that is the dumbest thing I have ever read first off if my husband had he would of had his gun licese pulled and would be suspended from the Federal Marshall Service which he is not...Thank you for thinking about cheyenne who is doing fine and we just got back from her softball tourment where she played her little heart out all day long..

I am just sick reading what you gossiup mongers are typing.. is that all you have to do is talk trash about things you know nothing about.. I am sick to my stomach thinking sooo many so called " parents" in martensdale want to talk about my family as if they know everything which they don't and they hide behind a bs name thats ok I will find out who you both are and we an have a little talk about what my husband and I do and don't do.. since apprently you can't say these things to our faces just behind our backs.. But I should of known better I grew up here and the people are still the same backing talking white trash gossip mongers with nothing else to do but talk about things thet don't concern them..

First Off I know the Warners, They love and try to protect and make a loving and happy home for their 4 kids.. Yes 4 Kids.. How many of you can take care of 4 kids all the time while you have one thats 10 soon to be 11, one thats 6, one thats 3 soon to be 4 and one that is 6 months old and premature with health problems. Not to mention all the outside people that they choose to come in to their home like life line resources for their oldest daughter and therpy appts for their son and a home nurse for their infant.. they are extreamly busy due to loving their kids and as for that person who said cheyenne went to their house when she was 6 with her brother thats a lie.. When Cheyenne was 6 her brother was only and infant who couldn't walk yet and barb didn't let her go anywhere but to school and across the steet to the nances house.. I went to the hospital that night and we talked about how when they moved in to the house they were living in now that they have had nothing but bad luck concerning their kids.. even DHS said they were good parents they just have the worst luck.. All these things that are happening isn't due to lack of surpervision or bad parenting.. It's just the luck they have now barb will not be letting her kids go outside at least here in town, she isn't signing her kids up for martensdale school and they are going to move thanks to people and their ingorant comments about a family they really have taken no time to know and that one person on here talking about a child getting molosted how dare you do that to that little girl what is wrong with you and if I was Barb I would track you down and sue your butt for talking about her child that way.. Cheyenne is a hero she did everything right just like she was taught by her mother and father so apprently they do teach their childen things and secondly Chris who's a federal cop was on his way to get them when with in seconds the accident happened.. They truly have bad luck not bad parenting.. Grow up perhaps if you got to know them you would see they are loving and caring parents to all their kids and sucide?? Really come on what is this high school..You people from my town make me sick shame on you

Wow was reading over the comments You guys from my town are clueless.. No one has tried to kill themselves, they watch their kid, cheyenne was 3 and it was a person who barb and her knew for 7 years she grew up here just like me we don't like to think that our friends are bad or that there are bad people since we didn't grow up where bad things happen and the 2nd assult happened a block away while she was in the care of her friends parents why were they not watching their son and daughters let alone a guest who is over there playing and the reason why barb didn't go outside until cheyenne came in was because she couldn't leave her infant inside alone and chris was outside just doug was outside and beat him there it wasn't like they lived blocks away from each other I know a family here in town they leave all their kids home alone while they go to work till 2 am these kids are running the streets shooting bb's and are out till 2am. That is something you will not see from the warners . and what about the kid in town that got raped because she snuck out of the house,so according you,you all think they must be bad parents as well since they were not watching their kids.. The whole point here is that the kids are supervisied it just seem like with in the few seconds of turning away something happens that is not in their control..They are cursed or it's the house since they do live in the house where that old carpenter committed sucide.. good thing they are moving.. Thats the thing about Martensdale if you don't have the right name your nothing.. It's rather funny that people in this town think so highly of theirselves when deep down they are not nobody but a gossiping fool who have nothing better to do then to say inflamatory statements about a family they don't even really know how many of you on here have tried to talk to either of them to find out what has been happening...I don't think you realize that no one fights harder for the rights of children like barb does.. she devotes her time to trying to change the Iowa laws who let child sex offenders out of prision..due to what happened when her daughter was 3. She didn't know there were 2 child predtaors in town or she would not have let her daughter go to her friends house.. I bet you didn't know that Yes 2 Kids who moloste other children in this town.. nice huh. Barb has suffered day and night over what has happened to cheyenne that girl has the worst luck.. and it's not no ones fault. Perhaps it is their trials from god that they have to live through to make them stronger.. why would you want to put them down when they have nothing but bad luck you should want to help them like a good neighbor instead of worring about DHS and the Police and trying to make their lives even harder not only for the parents but for their children would you really want 4 kids to go to a foster home.. Due to one families bad luck.. well guess what not going to happen they have been ruled good parents by cps..so don't bother calling to turn them in your just wasting your time and will give me something to laugh about the next time I speak to barb..She has tried so hard to make friends in this town but like it always is people here think their something.. Tell me something martensdale parents.. do you make 1,500 dollars a week???? and have a federal badge and are trusted by the united States government? for someone who is such a horriable person and sooo neglectful funny how the Federal Marshall Service hasn't pulled his license or fired him since he is so messed up with the sucide attempt and all..Shame on all of you I hope bad things happen in your little world then maybe you might just see and feel what they feel you know it could of been your kids playing outside or at a friends house being molosted by and older sibling.. You just think about that and how you can live with yourself is beyond me..These people have been through enough and don't need your bs adding to it

Amen law student! I know the Warners as well. They are good people, and the people in this town need to stop spreading rumors that they are bad parents and drug addicts and whores and apprently sucidial.
Rumors does not make it true. They love their kids very much and would do anything for them. It's a shame that they feel they have to move due to the people in this town. If you don't have the right name here then your no body. Let me tell you something the suck up people here are not anyone special they live in Martensdale for pete's sake. Pull your heads out of your butts and get the facts before running your mouth people have feelings Cheyenne is doing fine except Barbara will not let her go outside to play or go anywhere due to the people in this town and thats sad that a 11 year old girl can't even play outside like a normal kid thanks to you all. Not to mention her 3 year old loves to play outside and now she can not either I hope your happy with what you have done I agree with law student, how can you live with yourselves. You should go and apologize to them for what you have said. They are good decent people who go to chruch and do what they can for their kids, god has just delt them a bad hand perhaps the house barb does live in is cursed like she has said soo many times. I would love to be in a room with you people and say that to her instead of hiding behind some bs name on the internet GET THE FACTS BEFORE SPEAKING!!!!

I agree with you resident. Martensdale is nothing but a bunch of rednecks trying to act like they are better then everyone else.. Heck look at all the drunks down at roadside every night. Funny Chris and Barb have never been down there drinking. but yet they are all thoes horriable things. I wish I could be in the same room with these people as well. I would love to know who they are, so I can set them straight. When I have kids I am not bringing them here thats for sure.

Our kids are loved and have everything they could ever want and as for sucide.. you are soo dumb no one has tried to kill themselves in out house where do you get your information. why not give me a call and I will set you straight on the facts of things but I have had enough with martensdale I thought moving back here as an adult that my children would be safe from harm and that people would be nice but I should of known better the kids I went to school with were not nice so why would anything change and just so you know one of cheyennes school mates gets on this site and she is ten do you really need to talk about what has happened to cheyenne and I did everything I could to get that sob put in Jail and as for the incident in town she was at her best friends house and her older brother who was molosted by d d and also raped his younger sisters so you have the nerve to call me a bad parent where were t's parents why didn't they stop him from assulting his sister and my daughter in their own house see you talk about stuff you know nothing about and what shoudl I do huh demand that the little boy who is also a victum be thrown in prison? I lobby harder then anyone to get child sex offenders put away.. look up Cheyennes law it states anyone who rapes murders or kidnaps a child gets life in prison or the death penalty.. I have fought for 5 years to get that law passed so before you speak get all the facts you peice of white trash.
