Matlock Johnson Realtors owner David Alexander and ex partner George Marcus sold Big D the Sutter Highlands ground.

Matlock Johnson's own Russell Johnson was responsible for bringing Big D to Junction City, according to trial testimony. Thanks alot Matlock Johnson Realtors for being part of the problem, not the solution.

No! Thank you Junction City City Manager for making taxpayer money development decisions based not on facts, research or due dilegence, just a person's word. Just who's money was being spent? Taxpayers?
I should get in touch with HBO. They just might be interested in a new series. The Sopranos started the series, now we'll finish it.
What would the new show be called?
Is it true a city commissioner signed a development agreement without a city commission vote? If true, who was the commissioner? Will legal action be taken against the commissioner

I know this is old news but how do you know when Rod Barnes is Lieing? When ever his lips are moving. Two of the six developments were Big D. Sutter Woods, Sutter Highlands, Olivia Farms, Bluffs, Manns Ranch and Falcon Ridge. The last two were local developers who absolutely did not get the favortism of Big D or the others. You all have heard all the stories about DJ Christie, Compton and Olivia Farms.

Isn't the prosecutor aware that only Big D and Olivia were allowed to proceed with their projects without the required engineers estimates of the job cost? Big D constructed for six months prior to turning in the engineers estimates of cost. They were also allowed to use special construction techniques that others weren't. What about the check that Rothfuss had to pay Wunder for the house he didn't buy? Only Freeman ever referred to Russ Johnson as GODFATHER of the city. Only when Russ died did Big D and Rod and Mick go crazy thinking they would be the next gurus. Roger Morningstar brought Freeman to town, not Russ Johnson. Russ may have done things some people didn't like but he actually gave back to the city. Roger Morningstar got away from BIG D because he could read the writing on the walls. Someone needed to do a lot more investigation for this case. Rod Barnes has lied on the stand, but like I said if he says anything it is a lie.

Who developed Falcon Ridge and Manns Ranch? What local developers got NO BID contracts?

I don't know that any "local developers" did much of the mass construction here in JC. Barnes was asked about the "no bid" contractors and I believe he said he thought there were 6, but on the stand he could not remember them all. He did say that there were no back-ground checks done on contractors, because they trusted Russell Johnson and it seems he brought the majority of them to JC....at least the ones that have testified all met Wunder through Russell Johnson.
