The Pardon of Sheriff Joe Arpaio


Very often this story seems to center around Arpaio's enforcement of illegal immigration laws.  Law enforcement personnel saying of this man that “He was just doing his job” is incorrect. No, he wasn't. It was just as much his job to look after those he was given the authority to care for. Pardoning someone for bad behavior does not mean they didn't commit a crime. Trump's pardon does not “vindicate” him at all. Let me be clear, I do not disagree with him going after illegal immigrants.

I am an advocate for prisoner's rights in the United States however, especially after we began using jails as holding facilities for people with mental health problems. Jails are for people who have either committed very small infractions or for those who are awaiting processing through the court system. You can end up in jail for not paying parking tickets. Does that mean you should be subjected to 120- degree heat in the desert of Phoenix, Arizona until your bail hearing? I don't think so. There should be no stigma for having been in jail because you can also be innocent. It's just a holding place until that is determined. Therefore if you judge yourself as “good” based on the shortcomings of others who happen to end up in a jail then you may end up surprised when you meet your maker.

Arpaio's only job was to catch those accused of breaking the law, keep inmates in the jail, keep them alive, and transport them to court. At this, he failed miserably.  He was breaking laws himself and encouraging others to do so as well. I don't know if he's a racist but the majority of people who have met him say he is. Based on those reports in my view, he's not "tough". He's just another bully. My concerns with him have to do with "Tent City" and what has been reported there. See also: Inhumanity Has A Price (2007 Article Phoenix New Times).

There is a catchy little phrase that is often used by law enforcement/corrections personnel “Don't do the crime if you can't do the time.” I don't think anyone really knows who the quoted author (anonymous) is but the word “time” insinuates a jail or prison and they began somewhere around the 1500's. So, I'll say it's maybe been used as far back as that. Even further back and spoken by someone with a little more influence than anonymous is Matthew 7:12 “In everything, then, do to others as you would have them do to you. For this is the essence of the Law and the prophets.” See also, Luke 6:31. Yes, there is the "Eye for an eye" passages but those who follow them have not yet evolved. In other words, finish the book. Therefore, with regard to the various laws concerning the housing of prisoners that Arpaio broke, my hope is that he has learned from his own confinement if he was confined at all. Although I suspect if he was it was probably a very different experience for him. Lacking that, the conviction by his peers and subsequent loss of the election might serve for him to think about his actions. 

Those in law enforcement should not consider Arpaio a hero or someone to aspire to be like. He honestly gave your profession a bad reputation in the eyes of the general public, you know the people you have sworn to protect? Those people had to pay for all the lawsuits that he is directly responsible for. When I mention the lawsuits, I am not talking about the ones derived from the loss of the prisoner's lives specifically (something along 24 million dollars I believe). That was only the half of it. Do you think prisoners just go to jail and have no contact with the public? That the public is no longer affected by them? Some of these lawsuits weren't brought by the prisoners or their families at all. Lawyers go into jails and have contact with inmates in order to provide legal services when they go to court. Guards have contact with prisoner's and they go home to their families. Prisoner's sometimes have to go to hospitals or health officials need to go into the jail. If an inmate contracts a disease due to the poor conditions in a facility, those diseases can affect the public. That is what happened here. 

Now, with regard to jails and prisons as a “deterrent” to crime. Do you think that people wake up one day and say to themselves “I think I will become an addict.” or “Today is the day I will have a mental health crisis.” or even "Boy, I'm just dying to go to jail."? A lot of people who end up in jail have already experienced and lived through bad parenting, poor health care, lack of regular food, sexual abuse and beatings by loved ones over the course of sometimes decades. They are battling demons a lot of people can't even conceive of. These days we call those Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE's). Those children have a very high incidence of going to jail. Most would call them "victims" when they are young, but then when they get a little older people like Arpaio will call them "garbage" and that is somehow OK to do?

Do you really think you can build a corrections system that is worse than what they have already endured? Possibly even Arpaio's jail wasn't that bad in some people's minds, but bad conditions forced on prisoner's just reassures them that no one cares and that all of humanity is the same. Anyway, jails deter nothing, but if inmates learn the above lesson from being inside one, then why should they care about a society that would allow others to treat them that way when they get out?

Prisons are an educational opportunity for the certain authorities to examine why crimes are committed and develop programs that might prevent them. They are also for the prisoner to reflect upon their actions and take measured steps to change. It is after that we that hope they get out and sometimes they will never get out for the safety of the public. There is no position in the United States Corrections System for a "Punisher" except for I suppose, those who administer the death penalty (which I also don't agree with). Sure sentencing is handed down by judges and is based on laws, but the loss of freedom and other rights is the punishment (again, except for the death penalty). Nowhere in those laws does it say that corrections officials have the right to do whatever they want to inmates. Uniforms do not give people rights like that. Nor does having shiny pieces of metal on them. Nor does a covering over your face. At least not here in the United States it doesn't. That's what our service members fight and die for. They fight against tyranny and for the protections of our citizens. Citizens are a constitutionally protected class in or outside of a jail and due process is one right you don't lose. Also, these protections are not lost upon conviction. So, if you are seeking a "Punisher" position, there are other countries you may apply to. Here we have guards. That's what they do. They guard. Sure you could go before a disciplinary committee if there is a problem and sometimes the inmate may receive more time, or a more restrictive indoor housing unit or loss of privileges but no one is supposed to lay hands on anyone unless there are extreme circumstances.

Here is another thing to consider. Most people think that prisoner's stay in jails and prisons because they can't get out. This notion is simply not true and it's especially not true in a jail. It's actually rather arrogant to think that way. So why do they stay? Even bad parents teach their children to respect their authority. So as young children, we are conditioned to follow authorities, rule of law and societal expectations. Most of us are followers and we pick and choose from these conventions. That is why they stay.  We are conditioned to think that way. Just like, theoretically it is not a law enforcement officer who decides whether a member of the public get's shot by him or her. It's up to the person whom they encounter.

Upon occasion, a leader is imprisoned and sometimes a higher authority guides them to right wrongs even within the walls of a corrections facility. At the University of New Mexico, I worked with a former guard who was witness to the 1980 riot at the Penitentiary of New Mexico. If he is alive today, he can tell you prisoner's do not have to get out to affect change both inside and outside of those walls, and yes they can get out. See also Dwight DuranDuran Consent Decree, and Ebook: The Devil's Butcher Shop: The New Mexico Prison Uprising  Arpaio's jail was a time bomb.

All of this said I do not have a problem with Trump pardoning Arpaio or his enforcement of illegal immigration laws. We need to enforce of those laws. We need to know who is coming in and out of our country and why. Aside from terrorists, there are still organized groups that take children as slaves and/or exploit them for sex. This is still acceptable behavior in some cultures. When these people work in our country, they sometimes find employment in trusted positions such as coaching, teaching, etc. 

I once had a mother come to me because she had found that her young daughter had been having conversations with a man and when she questioned her about him, he deleted his profile. She then found out that her daughter had been talked into sending him nude pictures. She tried to report it to the local sheriff, who brushed it off because she couldn't provide the profile and because he just thought of it as a teenager thing. I was able to find an older profile he had on another social media platform with the same pictures he had posted to Facebook. This enabled her to go back to local law enforcement who still did nothing. We ended up contacting Homeland Security who identified him. He was here from Puerto Rico working in a teaching position at a college. When this woman's daughter was interviewed by Homeland Security, she found out that he had been taking her out of school and that he was a member of a pornographic syndicate. Her daughter had been days away from being carted off through the Mexican border.

When it comes to law enforcement, criminal justice, and corrections, there are people and there are systems. Arpaio showed us a bad example of human behavior and he was a subpar administrator. If Trump can pardon that, it's fine by me. We have given him the authority to do so and I respect that. Personally, I would not associate myself with Arpaio's views but who am I after all? Just a vote. PS: No, I'm not a Democrat.

Fake News, Fake People and Social Media

You hear a lot these days about fake news. Like false advertising, and fake people it all boils down to the same thing; you're being lied to. Social media gets blamed for perpetuating the trouble, but social media really isn't the issue. For a variety of reasons, people convince themselves that it's OK to do things they know are wrong...to put food on the table, to further a career, or to advance a cause, etc.

As far as news goes, there used to be trusted news sources but not so much any more. News used to be just that, news. Now it's hard to tell news from marketing and now that consumers are more aware, all news seems suspect. If it's really important, a story has to be double checked before sharing it because you feel like a dope for sharing false reports. We create laws to curtail such behavior but of course, it doesn't stop it. It just provides recourse sometimes.

Traditional marketers just don't know where to go with social media. For a while they were hoping it would go away and were completely dismissive of it, but now it made a man President (that probably otherwise wouldn't of had a chance) and that was only with the second largest brand of social media, Twitter. You got to respect the power of it in keeping a politician down to 140 characters per message, and he won? 

It's so much easier to come up with a one sided campaign for a specific audience. Engaging your audience used to be reserved for hard sell specialists. Also, it used to be that marketing would promote a product and if there was a problem with the product, how the company handled it was pretty much kept on the low down. How the problem was handled didn't go out to the masses and didn't necessarily affect the entire brand. It might get reported to the Better Business Bureau or a newspaper, but it was often forgotten after a while unless you were looking for it.

For consumers social media is considered a reliable source for information. Customers can review not just the product, but the overall experience and even individual employees. People who are researching a purchase are drawn to negative reviews. By many, they are considered more reliable. We all know that reviews can be paid for just like actors are paid for doing commercials, but the theory here is that no one would pay for a bad review and it's human nature to see how the company responded. When handled correctly you couldn't pay for that type of advertising.

Facebook is the number one social media platform. It's possible that this brand gets a bad rap from some people because of the word “friend”. Certain expectations come to mind when it comes to the word friend and that's really not what Facebook friends always are, especially if a person is only using it for business or to deliver messaging. Facebook allows you to sort your friends, but it's still really confusing for some. Sales people like Facebook because they want to be considered a friend, since friends are supposed to be reliable and trustworthy. Fake friends and fake people are a problem though for some of us. When you emotionally invest in something and find out it was not even real, it leaves a bad taste.

Fake people on social media are really easy to spot. You know these people are not reliable as an information source (or a possible friend) because the messages are always impersonal, repetitive and almost always, they are in a sort of advertising mode. After a bit even if the message they are conveying is a good product or service, you skip over the message because you already know what it is and why they are posting it. Most of us skip over those posts, especially if there's no interesting picture to pique your interest. Really good social media marketers know that they have to be subtle and precise with their messaging. In this last few years, even used car salesmen have changed their tactics for this very same reason. Even if you were in the market for a car, you were avoiding the salesmen.

Nonprofits have developed some of the most aggressive of social media/email campaigns. They tend to be very subtle at first in order to get your email address. Then horror stories and guilt campaigns arrive in your mail box in order to get donations.

It's tough to weed it all out, especially for people who are looking for relationships. Very often you will find people who agree with everything you say. At first you might think that it's wonderful, but they have their motives. No two people agree on everything. It's best not to engage in anything more than a casual relationship until you've had a few disagreements. Do keep in mind that a disagreement doesn't have to be a fight. If you can't find something to disagree about, red flags should be sounding off. Whatever they could be hiding might be a whopper of a secret! Keeping it casual may keep the drama to a minimum, although some people live for that drama especially in their teens and twenties. This is why dating sites are so popular.


Take heart, even some of us who study people have been fooled by dogmatic fake people. As long as you don't take social media too seriously and recognize the signs of fakes and sales pitches, social media can be a safe place to talk and get to know people from all kinds of backgrounds and a great place to find products and services in your area. 

History From An Adopted Girls Perspective

The other day, my daughter who knows I'm adopted sent me a private message asking me if “tumors run on your side”. I responded “What side? I'm adopted. I've never had any.” She asks “You don't have a family history?” I said “I'm making my own history. Since I was adopted at birth, I was a little too young to get into it with them.” Many people have asked me about trying to find my birth parents. I've never understood what I'm supposed to be looking these people up for? I don't go looking for trouble and with my luck, they're homeless.

A few years back we moved to Berkeley Springs, West Virginia. If you read anything about this place that has been produced by the local writers, it's all going to be history, history, history. People's view of history has always been a funny thing to me. It seems to be a subject that is highly debatable and I've noted that all tourism departments tend to focus on this as an “attraction” for visiting an area. Our area is famous because George Washington bathed here. It must be so, it's mentioned in every article about the place. I just want to know, how hot is the water? That's not to say I'm unpatriotic. I just don't care where anyone has bathed.

Honestly, with all the fighting that goes on behind who got here and when and what the forefathers intended, I have to wonder if maybe it would be better if everyone didn't know a darned thing about where they came from. Anyway, in this area everyone seems to start out their latest opinion about a controversy with how long they've lived here (as if it weighs as an important factor on whether they should be listened to). I find this an interesting behavior and I've never encountered it anywhere before on such a massive scale. I've even had people who were applying for a job at an organization I worked for who've said when I asked for their resume that they've never needed one because their name is (whatever it was) and they've lived in the area (however long it was). I don't remember their names.

It's no wonder West Virginia is last in everything with that sort of view. With the globalist agenda of our government, can anyone wonder why this is Trump country? Newsflash West Virginia, no one cares who your parents are when it comes to small business hiring practices, unless of course you come from a family of millionaires who are willing to invest in the business. In which case, come by with a check and once it's cashed we'll put you work. In the real world though, we want to see a verifiable work history in resume format. Resume builders are free with Google Docs and various other free programs.

A new controversy here in our area is apparently the state BAD (Brownfield, Abandoned, Dilapidated) Buildings Program. On the other side of this are those who are terribly concerned about their business model to promote our area as a small town “lost in time”. Therefore, I suspect they are developing plans to “save the history” i.e., the old buildings, some of which are falling down. From my perspective, I wonder what the Conoy, Delaware, Honniasont, Moneton, Shawnee, and Susquehanna Native Americans might say about the work to preserve some of these buildings, many of which can not be occupied without mega bucks being poured into them? I'd venture to guess it might be something like “Get your ugly, toxin filled, old building off my beautiful Mother Earth!” It don't get any more “lost in time” than that. Houses are meant to be lived in. Without tenants, they die just like anything else.

Meanwhile, for those who are currently trying to earn a living and feed their families, we can see the value in modern conveniences like broadband and public buildings that don't need remediation services and allow for the handicapped to access them per federal law.

Drugs -- Families Who Have Found Ways Out



My mother suffered from dilapidating health issues from the time I was about eight years old. My father worked two jobs to support our family and was often not at home. As my mother's condition progressed, I had more and more household and child care responsibilities. In was the 1970's. At 14, I remember lying in my bed and looking up at the ceiling and telling myself, I will never raise children this way but also, that same year I got my first job through the DECA program offered at the high school. That job training helped me throughout life. I married at 16 and had my first child, a boy. Two weeks prior to his birth, his father tries to kill me. We divorced. I married again approximately 3 years later and had a second child, a girl. During this marriage I embarked upon a career in law enforcement in arguably one of the worst cities that one could ever go into that field, Albuquerque. That marriage also did not work out and the divorce was contentious. I decided not to marry again, but eventually did approximately ten years later. I also decided law enforcement was not for me. So, to recap:

Born into a low/middle class family. Check
Family members struggled with medical issues. Check
Family members abused prescription pain killers. Check
Did not finish high school, but I did eventually get a GED. Check
Did not receive a higher education degree, but did go to approximately 2 years of classes. Check
Loved ones that used illegal drugs. Check
Trouble with the law/courts/legal systems. Check
Family members with mental health disorders. Check
Domestic violence. Check

There is no black and white and it seems a bunch of really smart people have spent countless hours of research and still have no idea how to address these issues. They are looking for one size fits most solutions. The families that have risen out of the circumstances they were dealt are not comfortable talking about addiction and how it affected their family. This is primarily because of the systems and attitudes currently in place. Our families are the only ones that truly know how they rose above it all, but many are afraid to talk. Laws like "three strikes" are not helpful. I've seen people tell their story and it is used to attack what they have accomplished. Therefore, except for a few of us, we remain silent. For the sake of all those who are still dealing with this currently, we must speak out. We cannot be afraid. Some of those who are still in the middle of are losing hope. Others are being told hope is lost and to write off their loved ones. Laws and attitudes need changed and you can only change them by speaking out. Then there are those who don't want you to ever talk about the things that have happened. They want you to "focus on the positive". OK, I am positive these laws need to change! The reasoning behind them was wrong to begin with.

For my own part, I have helped to raise approximately ten children. These include my own two, my three siblings (one of which the state gave me full custody of when she was sixteen), a neighbor's child who was kicked out of his house the day before Christmas and lived with us approximately one and half years, the three children of a woman who rented from us and went to jail for approximately six months, and my step daughter who came to live with us when she was twelve. She is bipolar.

Of all the children above, four went into military service, two went on to retire. three have degrees (one several), one with a Masters, two are in college, one is still in high school and one has their own business. All of them, except the one in high school works. To my knowledge, even though a few have done drugs, they don't do them now. In addition to these children, my husband has three children from other marriages that we also have helped to support throughout their lives. I'm not saying this for kudos. I got that from them when they became what they did. It's just important to know that set backs, even ones that end in jail time are not the be all, end all of one's life. Sometimes, it's only the beginning.

I remember when my son was approximately ten years old. He had just found out about one of his friends being hurt by his parents. He told me “Mom when I grow up, I am going to become a famous baseball player and I am going to buy a hospital and anyone who doesn't want their kids can bring them there where you can take care of them.” I still consider it one of the highest compliments I've ever been paid. So in short, love and perseverance is the way out. Families are key to providing that. How many chances should a person get? As many as it takes. How do you affect that once they are in custody? You visit. You make them face you while they are sober. You make them face their children and you don't let the criminal justice system stop you. You do it out of a need for punishment; but out of love and understanding and hopefully so that the kids will understand that the choices that were made were not their fault and they don't want to make the same mistakes. The rules and the way in which prisons make money tend to be an hindrance to trying to keep families together and that needs to change.

They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Some of us know that road very well. After they are well enough to work at a real job, they need to be given that opportunity while inside. Programs that allow work release with a real and fair wage are imperative. They make it where those who are taking care of these people's children can get support. They make it where the parents are used to budgeting for that when they get out. It's also really important that the kids know that their parents are now caring enough to send the funds. They also make it where someone can save for getting out, so they don't end up right back on the streets trying to survive. You can't do that on .35 cents an hour. 

Many things need to change and the families need to make their voices heard in order to change them. There are those who want us to be quiet for their own comfort and/or ego. Now is not the time for that. Be heard. 

Does Your Website Work For Your Business?

Without search engine optimization (SEO) your site is just like a business card sitting on a desk in an office somewhere in the world. You have to buy advertising in various different places in order to give directions to that card.

You can build a website in just a few days! A lot of people just pick out a theme (like on Wordpress) from the thousands that are available (because coding is tedious) and all you have to do is in these themes is just fill in the blanks, but let me just tell you a little secret. May of these themes are not always optimized to point to your site. There's a reason why they are free. The coding is almost always going to have something that points to the author of the theme. Also, themes do not allow for placement of graphics anywhere on the page. That is the freedom in learning the coding. You can put a graphic anywhere and have it move anywhere.

There is a difference between someone who can build a website (anyone can) and a web developer. If you want to see if your site is optimized for the Google Search Engine, there is a tool for you to check it (or at least check out the work of your web developer), here's what you do: First, you have to have a gmail account. Then go to Google Webmaster Tools, then click Structured Data Testing Tool, enter your URL and click RUN TEST. You can check on the code of any site you want. On the left is the code for your site, on the right is what the engine actually sees from your code. If you want to compare what you see to a site that I have coded with SEO enter URL: http://mgsrefrigeration.com. I haven't updated this site in a while and there are a couple of errors, but they are minor. This site gives the information regarding the business and all the services it provides. This business has been nominated best HVAC business in Otero County for years running and has had to triple their staff since the site went up.

This is only the half of why this is important. People who have disabilities also need this coding. For those that are blind, this coding is what is read to them. There is all kinds of information that can be added to this code but at the very least you should have your site name, address, business, types of services, your social media accounts. Authors can have their name, publish date, title, article summary, etc. The coding can also point to your social media with “same as” codes.

This coding is not the easiest thing in the world to learn and that's why a lot of people don't use it. It was easier for me because I used to be a typesetter, but this is how your site attracts customers all on it's own. That's not to say you still won't have to drive traffic to it; but every little bit helps.

In short, it's fine to have a basic business card website if you are trying to attract customers who already know that they are looking for you by name, but if you are trying to attract people who are searching for generic terms like “places to have fun” or "contractors in berkeley springs" or something like that, you need the SEO.

Blogger is a themed site as well. That's what these themed sites were designed for -- blogs. If you own a businesses, it's simply just best to go to the time and expense of a real landing page with all your information along with the structured data information. Then you can link over to your really pretty site.

Morgan County Day At The West Virginia Capitol

I had to wait a day or two before posting this. Those of you who know me well will understand why. For the most part, we had a great time at Morgan County Day at the state capitol. We met loads of very nice people and sadly, one highly misinformed individual. We are currently researching just how this misinformation was obtained. It's so very hard to verify gossip. Just in case there are others, I would like to clarify a few things. My name is Martha Rhodes. Professionally I have worked in administration for construction companies and media production (primarily for newspapers) however I also know coding for websites (and own several). These sites give small businesses who have little or no budget a place to advertise and grow for free. Many of the owners don't really understand how websites and/or social media works. I receive no money from this state and never have.

Personally, I am an advocate for and support ADA compliance and criminal justice reform (especially where it applies to the mentally ill). I also work for and support 12 Habits For Wonderful People, an award-winning and copyrighted curriculum that was purchased by school systems for many years up until around 2008, when schools lost funding for such programs.
12 Habits For Wonderful People "You Count" in February
12 Habits For Wonderful People Display Table
Elaine Stevens Parke is the Executive Director of All of Us Inc. doing business as 12 Habits For Wonderful People and a friend of mine. She has a Master's Degree in Marketing but also knows little about social media (like so many others who have only employed traditional forms of one-way communication type advertising). To my knowledge, the 12 Habits For Wonderful People is the only thing Elaine publicly supports or expresses an opinion about. Professionally, Elaine has enjoyed a very successful career and while I don't ask her about her personal finances, she almost completely funds the organization here in Berkeley Springs. This is her gift to Morgan County. As a person in their mid 70's, most people would choose to hang on to their cash, in case of emergency. Also, in order to provide this gift, she has been putting off work on her own home. So you see, this gift does come at a personal sacrifice few others would make.

Personally, I can't see how it is possible to confuse the two of us, but it may have happened. Anyway, I feel the need to make it clear that we are two separate individuals. Our persons and our businesses are completely separate.

To my knowledge, neither 12 Habits For Wonderful People nor Elaine Parke has ever posted anything with regard to the work on a Streetscapes project. As myself, on social media, my only comments regarding Streetscapes had to do with supporting ADA compliance and thanking Larry Lower for mentioning that those who support compliance help. He made these statements in a kind, genuine and thankful way at the dedication ceremony at the park and also said to “keep it up”. While I know members on the Streetscapes committee, I don't have time to attend their meetings and therefore I do not, nor have I ever taken credit for their work. I have however made phone calls and also encouraged others to act on behalf of Morgan County to sway state legislators into making funds available for infrastructure projects in our area. I feel this is important because the money could easily go elsewhere.

In my mind, there is no really good reason to attack the character of an elderly woman, especially one so accomplished, without ever meeting her or giving her the chance to respond to the negative allegations against her. What's even more disturbing is that this person is a legislator. Also, who would think that sending inspiring community messages, helping disabled people and/or small businesses would be controversial endeavors? I honestly will never understand why people do some of the things that they do to each other. I guess if people want to view something negatively, they just will.

A while back, the Rotary Club sent Elaine to Rwanda to teach the 12 Habits For Wonderful People curriculum in their schools and it was recently announced that it is going to be developed as a national program in that country. During our visits in the West Virginia state capitol, I have personally heard Elaine offer this curriculum to the people of West Virginia free of charge and that can be verified by those who work in those offices. The effectiveness of the curriculum cannot be denied because there is verifiable data to support it. I have to say, if it were not for our fine community of over 60 ambassadors and the kids that love our materials and inspirational messages, I would advise my friend to keep her money and not to bother wasting her time.

I do not apologize for my beliefs. I do apologize to Elaine if negative people touched her life in an attempt to direct that energy at me if that is what happened. It may just be that in an attempt to protect their funding, some people feel like they are justified in spreading misinformation and negative energy. In my experience, beings of that type very often don't hit their intended targets. Also, when it's all about money, they don't really care if they hit innocents.

Even Banks Have Fun With Wonderful People!

Thanks to our new funding we needed to open up a new checking account and we of course, chose to open an account with one of our active ambassadors, City National Bank. Thank you to Cammie Shrewsbury and the wonderful tellers for all their help. Hope you enjoy this video.
