I have not lived in CC for several years. I don't know the mayor or any of her family. Yet, I do believe that she had to know about this company and these men. Someone a few post ago said, a backwoods "hillbilly" found out this information but the mayor or city council didn't. How true is that...I'm just a hillbilly, but in less than an hour I have found out enough about WNT and GGH that I am sick to my stomach. Two questions..does anyone know the answers...Where did the money come from to buy the land? Who gets the money for any timber or coal?
The land was bought by the city of manchester, and I don't know who get paid from the timber. THis land deal just made James a millionaire.......
I am shocked

Did WNT pay for your big Florida trip Carmen and Charles Ray? thought you had the wool pulled over everyones eyes. Crooks!
You are way too happy about this John Ed Pennington. You must hate Carmen so bad that you lay awake nights praying that she will mess up. We really need more people like you on the City Council. Let's give this time, don't be so sure that it is a scam.

The only patent I have found is to turn Taxpayer money into their own with one con job after another. It's funny how Carmen did not want anyone else in on this Scam but her. Hundreds of thousands of dollars were made on this Scan by all involved. Yea I can see the State giving WNT a big tax break. Lol!!!!!! Who is laughing all the way to Florida! By the way is Carmen and Charles Ray back from their vacation in Florida?

Look Guys, that post was not ment to hurt anyone. I wasnt going to respond to your site, but it was sent to us. Im sorry these guys are lying to you, and we sure hope they step forward and come through for your city.

Global Green recieved $200 million in April of 2009. And it has been reported they have a $3Billion dollar Bond.

The problem is; they take advantage of everyone one who helps them, and cut corners doing so. Everyone that has helped Global Green get to where they are today has not been paid. In stead they toss them aside like an old rag.

Some of these professionals have families, and work off of commission, can you imagine working 3 years for someone on your own dime, struggling to take care of your family, to only have the person you helped take a big crap on you.

Well this is the case, their are many professionals that has helped them get to where they are, and now they are making us take them to court, instead of just paying us.

So not only did they hurt the person that worked for them, but now their familes some are homeless, did not have a christmas. Are left trying to figure out where their next dinner is going to come from.

Saying this, if they do this to the people they have been working with for years. What makes you think they would be a good employer?

Global Green needs to take resposibility for all the Investors who gave them money that never received a return, the lenders who gave them money, for Mr. Bennett to only pledge land that didnt belong to him. The brokers who structured his loan, and secured funding for him, for him to only tell them to sue him.

He is a true jackass, that is no doubt. But the project is good, and if this man can have a coming to Jesus moment, and pay all of the people he screwed, then life can go on.

I pray for all the families, and it breaks my heart to see this guy does not care on how many lives he destroys trying to get to the top.

Greed is self distructing, he needs to fix his problems, then move forward with his plan. He owes almost a BILLION dollars to investors, lenders, borrowers, brokers and contract labor.

He has the funds, he just needs to take care of the people who got him here.

God bless,

When will Manchester/Clay County ever get a break? It's just one bad thing after another. It's like having the fox watch the hen house. After checking out the website for WNT and D. Bennett I want to throw up! Why didn't the City of Manchester do some research on this company before throwing away all of this taxpayer money? Who is to blame for this?

This was only a deal to line the pockets of her and her husband. Wake up and the timing is perfect right before the election. James Phillips is a first cousin to Mike white her brother-in-law. Kickback I reckon. She knew it wouldn't come to pass. Stupid is as stupid does. Coal and Timber I bet they are getting their cut.

S True the city paid for the land, but James was already a millonaire. We need the media to start investigating this scam now, if they aren't already !!!!!!!!!!

Yes it's good for them. Didn't you read and comprehend the report. Not one thing have they done but lie and scam the public and not only are they barred from doing business in several states they have been sued by these states as well as by their own people. If these reports are true , we have been shafted big time and our city is broke and you and I will be paying for it one way or another.

Folks, this is our tax money they are stealing from us. We will be the ones holding the bag for these crooks! Let everyone know whats going on! Show them this website and call Frankfort, TV Stations, Radio, Newspapers! Don't let these Crooks get away with Millions of dollars of your money! It's sad to say but if we don't pull together this type of ripoff will continue to happen. Another thing people can do is vote Mayor Carmen Webb Lewis out of office come election time. Take our City back from these Con Men and Women. Enough is enough!

How can WNT put a green factory in when they don't even have blueprints? No patents to make anything? Nothing!All they have is Con Men that is ready to rip anyone that stupid enough to do business with them off. This was for you Carmen Webb Lewis!
Exactly right. They didn't even pay the architect that did their drawings and he has them sued and took his plans back. By the time they pay their legal fees, and all the money they will owe from their lawsuits, and the money they owe their own people, they will have no money, if they ever had any to start with..
