Shall we watch a game of musical chairs?
As a child I can remember the game of Musical Chairs. The game was established for entertainment of the child’s mind & imagination, or as a lesson to train a child to react suddenly to an urgent signal. When the music stops, everyone playing must find a chair quick; otherwise, he will be without a chair and out of the game. Another good example of a child’s sudden reaction is a mother yelling at a child, “Get your hand out of the cookie jar!” The same cogent lessons are used today for adults.
When you read the newspaper, blog, social media, or a federal blotter on line, the idea is the same – giving the reader an urgent signal and react suddenly. Not just a story of who did what, but a lesson of what not to do. In many cases, those that have done wrong aren’t sure how to get out of the mess. But the nefarious mind already has an answer – find a fall guy.
It’s only a matter of time that those involved in the mess that surrounds the Gettysburg Battlefield Bash, the Gettysburg Ghost Exchange, the Historic Lookout House (now flop house or whatever name they give it today), and/or the Barry’s business ventures. All this appears to be like a growing zit on the forehead of an adolescent teen. It’s big, bold, and red, forming a huge white head on top. Everyone being drawn to stare at it. The question at hand comes several-fold: One, who is going to pop it and two, how big of a mark is it going to leave.
According to our sources, the Pennsylvania Department of State has received, examined, and confirmed to the Paranormal Herald that formal papers were in fact delivered to the Pennsylvania’s Attorney General’s Office. That same complaint has been distributed and administered to the other divisions of the State Department which include the Charitable Trust and Organization Fraud Department, all of which fall directly under the control of the PA Attorney General. But as explained to the Paranormal Herald, this information has gone to even a higher level. If that is true, then it will only be a matter of time before the IRS and the State Department becomes involved full scale along with their very large hammer that they wield.
Time appears to be important for the “Bash Crew” in order to get their papers in order and their story straight. I certainly hope they’ve secured a stronger source than the Mr. Biddle, whose sleuth work was determined to be about as water tight as a vegetable colander. His ability to twist words and create facts were about as good as any “Fan” could get.
Too much, too little, too late.
Judging from the efforts being exhausted in erasing the old information that was plastered all throughout the internet regarding the bash, their efforts look to be fruitless. According to sources, everything that once was, is still in play. The “too late to delete” list goes on: copies were retained as accusations about the event along with those involved to include those to have benefited.
I wonder if those designated as “Volunteers” and placed in charge of certain jobs understand that the job title comes with luggage. To interject, there are questions coming and answers are going to be needed. This is no longer a case of saints that walk on water, but rather the kid that got caught with his hand in a cookie jar and no one yelled at him.
Especially to those that were to be in charge of a money raising portion of the event and were to have overseen that all things formal were registered. There are several names that came to mind that just made me go, WOW! If the Barry’s make claims all was well but the numbers don’t add up, who are they going to offer as the sacrificial lamb? According to the old saying, “Sh*t rolls downhill”, the fall guy – aka sacrificial lamb – would be the Gettysburg Battlefield Bash’s Volunteer Coordinator, Erik Julian, with the responsibility of accounting for the “Volunteers” and the entire event. If the Barry’s claim that they were duped and everything was fine, that leaves Mr. Julian holding the bag of missing funds. That might sound a little outside of the box, but keep in mind it was Julian that stated no one was paid for their service at the “Bash”. Julian’s profile under the Gettysburg Ghost Exchange had him listed as the General Manager and an employee of the “Exchange” for several years. I don’t recall seeing the public record as issuing a 1099 or W2 for Julian from the Gettysburg Ghost Exchange. Maybe the “Bash” evened the wages owed to Mr. Julian. Just a thought!
This finely woven mess of “Volunteers” for the “Bash” actually makes one wonder if these people thought about or understand their titles and positions are benchmarks for accountability. If you read the finer points that were laid out in the prior article about the ideas of nonprofits vs. charity, you would understand that a “Silent Auction”, is just the same as taking funds at the door. It’s an accountability feature that is about to unfold in detail.
Being a writer for the Paranormal Herald is an eye-opening adventure. Following the leads and footsteps, to checking facts, has been surprising to say the least. But there are a few things in the short time investigating the “Bash”, that have just made me speechless.
From backdated files posted about the Gettysburg Ghost Gals to YouTube videos of Pam Barry that contradict the very essences of honesty. The Paranormal Herald will remain on course as Mr. Evan Jensen has stated several times over. We will strive only for the truth and encourage everyone and anyone the chance to rectify facts with evidence.
