I refuse to go to the newport Sonic because every time I stop there someone is asking for donations for tim programs. Where the hell do all his druggies get the $ for cigarettes? every time I drive by the womens' home they are like 20 women smoking. I know, at least they are not smoking crack but it makes me think......

do you run a childrens home or a juvenile detention center? why were the children on "lock down"? why were they not allowed to go to the father/daughter dance at school? why was a child told he could not play basketball because he didn't have shoes?
If you don't receive food stamps, why did a van full of residents go to the food stamp office and were instructed on how to fill out the food stamp form? Or are you going to deny this happened? Did your policy change regarding food stamps? and if so why?
You say we should thank you for starting this program, well we should thank the community for keeping it running. You should stop using the word I and use WE instead. It's not all about you Tim!

It takes money to run the programs I started. Without me the kids would be homeless. Without me the adults in the drug program would still be in jail.
That should thank me. You should thank me
Shouldn't we thank GOD?

Tim, please don't lower yourself to this website. Don't reply to these people they don't matter. It only makes you and your program look bad trying to defend yourself, it speaks for itself! Enough said!

I was shocked to read the posts from you tim. you stated that the cedar ridge scool district HATES the kids and have asked that they do not attend school functions. I refuse to believe that. IF the school asked you to keep the kids away from school functions, SHAME on you for not stepping up and defending their rights to attend!!
Your 94% is too funny to even reply to.
I know children who have been in your "home" and they hated it! And before you comment on that, let me state that these kids were not trouble makers.
I saw the posts about the food stamps. I was also told the same thing that others were about the applications.
You have the nerve to tell us to thank you? well, thank you for showing me what type of person you are. I for one will not be adding to your bank account.
WOW

When it rains it pours haters. Call the school and ask them. We have yet to see one set of houseparents that have truly wanted to minister to the children. Most of them only wanted a paycheck. If we had people who would truly minister to these children then we would obviously see more caring happening in the school.
Tomorrow I will bd visiting the school. I invite each of you to call Cedar Ridge and ask questions.
Please don't donate money. We don't want your money. We would rather have people that actually wants to donate money and cares for the kids.
Yes Tim, I will be calling the school to ask them if they hate the kids and asked that they stay away from school functions. Maybe when you visit the school tomorrow you will have the balls to stand up for the kids IF what you say isn't another one of your lies.

All of these posts by Tim Bumpous are not him and he is not writing these things. Someone is using his name and this is against the law. Someone is falsely using his name and this is under investigation and will be prosecuted. All you trying to defend us thank you but please stop it. This is nothing but a gossip column. I don't have time for this neither should you. Comments that have been posted are false; Tim Bumpous doesn't even know how to use a computer. We love Cedar Ridge School District and they have been nothing but good to us and our program. I am sorry for those who have been hurt by this slander. I encourage you to find something better to do with your time. There are people who don't agree on everything but we run our ministries with the up most integrity and to the best of our abilities.

They think they're all perfect and everyone else is below them... let GOD punish them!! He knows all and I'm sure he will punish for all our wrongdoings!!!! Thanks and have a blessed day
You are full of it. Nobody kicked you out of that church for living with your boyfriend. That's just ridiculous!

I am not a religious person nor do I believe in organized religion, but I think that the program is a wonderful thing. Some of these people have nowhere else to turn. They have been forgotten by their families and friends. And here is this place that accepts them regardless of their faults and helps them to realize this and gives them a way and means to change their lives for the better. I don't see many people willing to give these so-called "bad apples" even half a chance. Lives are being changed at this church. What can be bad about that?
My brother is in this program and he has nothing bad to say about it.
Tim is also my uncle, but we have never been close or even friends, but I think what he is doing is spectacular. He is a servant of God! This is Gods will at work and not Tims.
About the money. Would you quit your job and do Gods work? I think not. He has to provide for his family. Every preacher gets paid.
Quit fussing and arguing and go back to school. Learn how to spell. Get off this trash talkingtalking site and get an education....

It had been advised that there have been 2 arrests made for slandering my name. One of the two is a teacher at Cedar Ridge and they have lost their job. The second was a person that failed at my drug rehab program.
People that try to mess with me will be thrown in jail. I guarantee it.
SLANDER is a civil tort. It is not a crime. You don't get thrown in jail for slander.

I applaud you Tim for the work that you are doing. There isn't anyone else that could do the job you are doing. I heard that you have a 90%+ graduation rate and then more than 80% of the graduates remain clean for more than a year! Great work.

I entered this progam looking at a 10-40-life bid in ADC. I was 110lbs and had nothing! This program restored my life, my relationship with my family and most importantly found God! I have seen this program work wonders not just for me but everyone there that came for the right reason. They are strickt in the rules and sugar coat nothing. It's not a summer camp but a place to go and get your life on the right track. Tim,Leslie and all the staff have large hearts and do all they can to help all that come through the doors of that place.
