HAPPY FOURTH ANTI-INCINERATOR ANNIVERSARY, GENERAL TRIBAL COUNCIL of ONEIDA NATION in WI! NEW ‘TIMELINE PAGE’ DETAILS THE HISTORY of ONEIDA SEVEN GENERATIONS CORP. / OSGC & SUBSIDIARIES’ CRIMINAL FRAUD SCHEMES

  

ONEIDA EYE has added a TIMELINE PAGE .

We hope you will find it useful.

A SAMPLE CAN BE SEEN BELOW.

  

As previously noted . . .

OBC Chair Cristina Danforth,

OBC member Brandon Lee Stevens,

and OBC Chief Counsel Jo Anne House

are trying to convince GTC that

Artley Skenandore Jr.’s ‘Nature’s Way Tissue Corp.’ fraud scheme…

and OSGC’s ‘Green Bay Renewable Energy, LLC’ fraud scheme…

have nothing to do with each other…

but the TIMELINE proves Ronald H. Van Den Heuvel

is at the center of BOTH CRIMINAL FRAUD SCHEMES.

08/10/16 GENERAL TRIBAL COUNCIL MEETING excerpt: 

03/27/17 GENERAL TRIBAL COUNCIL MEETING excerpt:

04/23/17 GENERAL TRIBAL COUNCIL MEETING excerpt:

Brandon Stevens doubled down at the April 23, 2017 reconvened GTC Annual Meeting and said Ron Van Den Heuvel had nothing to do with Oneida Seven Generations Corp.’s and Oneida Energy Inc.’s GREEN BAY RENEWABLE ENERGY, LLC‘s PYROLYSIS ‘Waste-To-Energy’ scheme which was loaned $4 MILLION by WI Gov. Scott Walker‘s quasi-public/private Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. [WEDC] due to a total lack of due diligence on the part of WEDC’s legal counsel…

 

yet GBRE is just OSGC’s version of Ron Van Den Heuvel‘s “patented” GREEN BOX NA, LLC PYROLYSIS ‘Waste-To-Energy’ scheme… which was loaned $1.2 MILLION by WEDC due to a total lack of due diligence on the part of WEDC’s legal counsel.

WATCH RON VAN DEN HEUVEL MAKE HIS

PULP & PYROLYSIS ‘GREEN BOX NA’  PITCH

in his home town (kinda) of De Pere, WI at the April 05, 2014 City of De Pere Common Council Meeting asking for the City to issue Green Box NA Green Bay, LLC $125,000,000 in tax-free industrial development revenue bonds

…as was also arranged for Green Box NA Michigan, LLC by Gov. Rick Snyder’s Michigan Strategic Fund, for a total of $250,000,000 [a quarter of a BILLION]:  

But there’s this…

and this…

OOPS…

      

UH-OH …

      September 20, 2016 Superseding Indictment [19 Counts], U.S. District Court, WI Eastern District, Case No. 16-CR-064, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA  v.  RONALD H. VAN DEN HEUVEL, KELLY YESSMAN – VAN DEN HEUVEL, and PAUL J. PIIKKILA [fmr. Horicon Bank Loan Officer and the Interim Controller of the Green Detroit Regional Center EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program that encouraged foreigners to invest in Ron Van Den Heuvel’s Green Box NA fraud scheme to obtain U.S. Visas from U.S. Customs & Immigration Services [USCIS]

YIKES!

HMM…

Ron Van Den Heuvel and Kelly Yessman Van Den Heuvel’s trials were pushed backto October 23.

The Van Den Heuvels are accused of illegally arranging a series of loans in connection with their business, Green Box [NA].

According to the federal indictment, [Paul] Piikkila approved a series of loans for the Van Den Heuvels [from 2008 to 2009] when he was a loan officer with Appleton’s Horicon Bank location.

Bank management reportedly told Piikkila not to approve loans for the Van Den Heuvels so they were made out in other names.

Despite these facts, convicted Thief  and  Con Artist  and  Fraudster  Dan Hawk / Daniel Hawk – who has been the Registered Agent of Oneida Small Business, Inc. since (at least) 05/24/12 – motioned to amend Sherrole Benton‘s Main Motion to rescind General Tribal Council’s December 15, 2013 vote to Direct the Oneida Business Committee to Dissolve the Oneida Seven Generations Corp. / OSGC.

Dan Hawk / Daniel Hawk‘s Amendment was for OSGC to file suit against the City of Green Bay for having rescinded OSGC’s Conditional Use Permit (CUP) to build a version of Ron Van Den Heuvel‘s waste incinerator scheme in Green Bay.

HOWEVER, Sherrole Benton‘s Main Motion died after being tabled for more than 3 months, and GTC voted to leave it on the table to die. Thus, all of the Amendments voted on died with the Main Motion…

…including Dan Hawk‘s. 

EXCERPT FROM AUGUST 10, 2016: Motion by Sherrole Benton to rescind the December 15, 2013 action dissolving the Oneida Seven Generations Corporation and restrict the corporation to commercial leasing activities. Seconded by Loretta Metoxen.  Motion not voted on; item tabled.

Amendment to the main motion by Allen R. King to approve all of the BC recommendations for Items 4.A.1–4.  Chairwoman Tina Danforth ruled this motion out of order. 

Amendment to the main motion by Nancy Skenandore that he as GTC want to know who are the leaders; who are the investors; who are the attorneys; who are the stockholders; who are the owners; who are the board members; how are they paid; what do they use for collateral; for this information be provided for the last 10 years; and to be reported at the next meeting. Seconded by Cathy Metoxen.  Motion carried by show of hands.

Amendment to the main motion by Dan Hawk to allow Oneida Seven Generations Corporation to continue litigation with the City of Green Bay. Seconded by Sherrole Benton.  Motion carried by show of hands.

EXCERPT FROM AUGUST 10, 2016: Motion by Frank Cornelius to table this item. Seconded by Linda Dallas.  Motion carried by hand count: 845 support; 395 opposed; 16 abstentions.

EXCERPT FROM OCTOBER 2, 2016: Motion by [Oneida Business Committee Vice-Chair] Melinda J. Danforth to take the motion related to item 4.A.1. from the table. Seconded by Allen King.  Motion failed by show of hands.

Despite those facts, Oneida Seven Generations Corp. / OSGC and its subsidiary Green Bay Renewable Energy, LLC / GBRE filed suit against the City of Green Bay on December 23, 2016 in federal court: 

  • U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Wisconsin, Green Bay Division, Case No. 1:16-cv-01700Oneida Seven Generations Corp. & Green Bay Renewable Energy, LLC v. City of Green Bay

  

As seen in the GTC Meeting video excerpt posted above, Oneida Eye’s Publisher also asked OBC Treasurer Trish King at the April 23, 2017 GTC Annual Meeting reconvention why the FY2016 Report reprinted word-for-word & number-for-number OSGC’s Report from the FY2012 Annual Meeting Packet

except the FY2012 Report contained a disclaimer noting that it was based on FY2010 data:

Please note this information is from FY2010. As of the date of printing, Oneida Seven Generations [Corp.]  had not provided audited financial statements.

The FY2016 OBC Treasurer’s Report OMITTED that very important disclaimer and the OBC and Finance Department refused to simply admit that OSGC‘s rosy FY2016 Report contained out-of-date data that was SEVEN YEARS OLD.

The actions of OSGC, the Finance Department, and the OBC Treasurer intetionally publishing ‘material misrepresentations’ about OSGC’s finances amount to CRIMINAL FRAUD.

OSGC’s Report did not include the $5-6 MILLION LOSS on GREEN BAY RENEWABLE ENERGY LLC‘s Waste Pyrolysis project in Green Bay…

nor was there any mention of the $12-15 MILLION SECRET SETTLEMENT OSGC Managing Agent Peter J. King III admitted he gave – WITHOUT PERMISSION FROM GTC –  to Eric Decator’s Generation Clean Fuels/Arland Clean Fuels Plastics Pyrolysis project that GTC prohibited OSGC from conducting anywhere within the boundaries of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin Reservation.

Add the $4-5 MILLION LOSS on Nature’s Way Tissue, Corp. as reprinted in the FY2016 Report.

SO FAR, OSGC HAS LOST $21–25 MILLION 

on Ron-related Pulp & Pyrolysis ‘investments’ that we (kinda) know of.

OBC Treas. Trish King said she needed clarification, and Oneida Eye’s Publisher tried to help explain how anyone could confirm that the financial data for OSGC in the Treasurer’s FY2016 Report was actually from FY2010…

and… of course … ‘retiring’ OBC Vice-Chair Melinda J. Danforth had to buffalo butt her way over the attempted clarification. 

    

Speaking of ‘Buffalo Butt’ Danforth

Rumor has it that the OBC is currently spending its day-to-day activities trying to trick the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development / HUD into funding a new job…

A ‘parachute position’ created & designed by OBC specifically for Melinda Danforth at the Oneida Housing Authority / OHA, because she’s leaving OBC politics behind…

…but HUD reportedly told the OBC that if they tried to use federal money to pay for both Melinda’s new dream job and for the existing Housing Authority Executive Director position, then ALL OF OHA’s HUD FUNDING WOULD BE YANKED.

After that news, Melinda Danforth decided to file a Petition to run for the single position opening on the Oneida Gaming Commission

(OGC – where OSGC‘s Fmr. Pres. & Chair William ‘Bill’ Cornelius is ‘legal counsel’)

…thus running against ‘retiring’ OBC Chair Cristina Danforth.

However, the OBC & Finance Dept. are said to be looking under the couch cushions to find ways to fund Melinda’s cushy new role.

(Tough luck to anyone else who might apply.)

AND NOW…

A SAMPLE OF ONEIDA EYE’s ‘TIMELINE PAGE’

   

   






  

The ONEIDA NATION of Wisconsin has a LONG HISTORY of Following FRAUDS, IMPOSTERS, and SCOUNDRELS…

because that’s how it came to exist in the first place.

   

IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER:

1820 and 1821 : Con-artist Masonic Mohawk & Episcopal ‘Minister’ – Eleazer Williams – leads delegations of Oneidas from New York to settlements on Menominee tribal land in Wisconsin on what became the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin reservation.

Eleazer Williams claimed to be the ‘Lost Dauphin’ – the kidnapped son of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette – and, thus, the rightful heir to the throne of France.

Some Oneida now believe the ‘delegation’ was actully made of members who had been shunned, disowned, expelled, and forced to leave the Oneida’s New York area in keeping with ‘The Great Law of Peace’ for their attempts to take control over the Oneida people on behalf of ‘Christian’ fraudster Eleazer Williams in an attempt to convert the Oneidas to the religion of another nation (a ‘Christian’ nation / France / Freemasonry).

77

When the chiefs of the League decide to admit a foreign nation and an adoption is made, the chiefs shall inform the adopted nation that its admission is only temporary. They shall also say to the nation that it must never try to control, to interfere with or to injure the Five Nations, nor disregard the Great Peace or any of its rules or customs. In no way shall they cause disturbance or injury. Then shall the adopted nation disregard these instructions, their adoption will be annulled and they will be expelled.

The expulsion shall be in the following manner:   The council shall appoint one of their War Chiefs to convey the message of annulment and he shall say:

“You, ………… (naming the nation), listen to me while I speak. I am here to inform you again of the will of the Five Nations Council. It was clearly made known to you at a former time. Now the chiefs of the Five Nations have decided to expel you and cast you out. We disown you now and annul your adoption. Therefore you must look for a path in which to go and lead away all your people. It was you, not we, who committed wrong and caused this sentence of annulment. So then go your way and depart from the territory of the Five Nations and away from the League.”



Ron Van Den Heuvel

1915–1916 & 1919–1920 : According to the Brown County, Wisconsin Sheriff’s Department website, Henry Van Den Heuvel was Brown County Sheriff.

  

Henry’s grandson is Ronald Henry Van Den Heuvel.   

 

Ron Van Den Heuvel resides at 2303 Lost Dauphin Road, Lawrence, WI.    

       



Artley Skenandore Jr.

1957–1960 : According to the Brown County, Wisconsin Sheriff’s Department website:

In 1957 with the election of Artley Skenandore [Sr.], Brown County became the first county to elect a full-blooded Indian to the position of sheriff.

Artley’s son is Artley Murray Skenandore, Jr. – former Oneida Nation of Wisconsin General Manager and a scheme partner with Ron Van Den Heuvel.

Art Skenandore Jr. is currently the Principal of Oneida Nation High School.



Sharad Tak

1974 : According to the 12/01/07 issue of The Washingtonian, ‘Living the American Dream,’ by Madhu Jain:

Many Indian-Americans came to Washington with a few dollars and big hopes. Thanks to hard work – and lucrative government contracting – some are millionaires, living large on the Potomac and McLean and making their presence felt in politics, business and the arts

Rich Indian-Americans in Washington have made their fortunes in finance, management consulting, and, increasingly, information technology and cellular and Internet services. They live in faux chateaux that do justice to a Kubla Khan fantasy. Most live in Potomac, McLean, and Bethesda.

The desis, as many Americans of Indian origin refer to themselves—desi is a word used for people from South Asia—have arrived. And many are living the American dream.

Mahinder Tak, a radiation oncologist and retired US Army colonel, is another player on Washington’s cultural scene. Her home in a wooded area in Bethesda, where she lives with her entrepreneur husband, Sharad, houses arguably the largest personal collection of modern and contemporary Indian art in the United States. Last year Art & Antiques magazine listed her among the top 100 collectors of art in the country.

Sharad Tak, the entrepreneur who lives in Bethesda, was the pioneer. In 1974, he lobbied for Indian-Americans to be considered minorities, enabling them to take advantage of incentives given to minority-owned businesses.

Tak’s company, ST Systems Corporation, provided programming and systems integration to agencies including NASA and the Federal Aviation Administration. He brought in other Indian-Americans to work with him, including Frank Islam[.]

“Sharad was my boss,” Islam says. “He inspired my entrepreneurship.” In 1991, Tak sold his company to Hughes Aircraft. A serial entrepreneur, he then ventured into television and communications and, more lately, paper mills.



Ann Van Den Heuvel Murphy

1977 to 1987 : According to LinkedIn, Ron Van Den Heuvel’s sister Ann M. Van Den Heuvel Murphy worked at family-owned VHC, Inc. for 10 years

Ann (Van Den Heuvel) Murphy began her career in her family’s business. VHC, Inc., has grown into a national company including Spirit Construction, Vos Electric, and VDH Electric. Their primary focus is in the Paper Industry, medical facilities, and Lambeau Field.

Ann M. Van Den Heuvel is married to Patrick Murphy, received an Honorary Degree from St. Norbert College in 2000, and was a Member of the Transition Team for incoming WI Gov. Scott McCallum.

According to the December 2, 2016 DECISION and ORDER signed by Chief Judge William C. Griesbach, Case No. 1:2014CV1203,
Tissue Technology LLC, Partners Concepts Development Inc, Oconto Falls Tissue Inc., and Tissue Products Technology Corp.  v.  Tak Investments LLC

BACKGROUND 

This case is the second iteration of a dispute between the Plaintiffs, a group of entities controlled by Ronald Van den Heuvel, and Tak Investments, LLC, a Delaware company. The dispute arises out of Tak’s purchase of an Oconto Falls, Wisconsin, paper mill from the Plaintiffs. In a previous action, Case No. 12-CV-1305, the Plaintiffs (also known as the OFTI Group) sought to enforce a provision in the parties’ agreement that would require the Defendant to turn over “an undiluted 27% ownership interest of the highest class in [Tak] Investments” because the Plaintiffs had deemed four promissory notes cancelled. Upon motions for summary judgment, this court found for the Defendant on the ground that one of the four notes had been assigned to another party, thus precluding the ability of the Plaintiffs to deem all four notes cancelled. As such, the Plaintiffs had not fulfilled a condition precedent to enforcing the provision of the contract upon which they relied. However, the court noted that because the assignee “could reassign the fourth note back to OFTI [i.e., the Plaintiffs] there is nothing in the record to suggest that OFTI is permanently foreclosed from cancelling all four notes and thereby fulfilling the condition precedent.”

This is exactly what has now happened. The Plaintiffs, having received an assignment of the fourth note, are now payees of all four notes and thus have the ability they lacked in the previous action, which is to “deem” (as the contract puts it) the notes to be cancelled. Accordingly, they believe they are entitled to the remedy of specific performance, that is, an order requiring Defendant Tak Investments, LLC to transfer a 27% interest in itself over to the Plaintiffs. Both sides have moved for summary judgment.

ANALYSIS

The Defendant’s first argument is very simple: it argues that it does not have the ability to convey any interest in itself to the Plaintiffs, or anyone else for that matter. Only owners can convey interests, and Tak Investments, LLC – the only defendant in this action – does not own itself. Instead, the LLC is owned by Sharad Tak and his wife [Mahinder Tak], and / or Tak Investments, Inc., none of whom are party to this action.

…[N]one of the statuatory provisions Plaintiffs cite stands for the principle that an LLC may convey something it does not possess, namely an ownership interest in itself.

This is not merely an academic problem or an elevation of form or function; it is a recognition of the realities of ownership. When part of a company – or anything else, for that matter – transfers to someone, it is also necessarily transferred from someone. The percentage of ownership must always add up to 100%. And so if the company itself purported to transfer 27% of itself to Plaintiffs, from whom would it be taking that share? And on whose authority? These questions demonstrate the essence of the problem, which may be summarized succinctly: “A corporation does not own itself.”  Hanley v. Kusper ….

[Footnote 2: It is not clear why the Plaintiffs have not sued Sharad Tak personally.] …

[Footnote 3: The payee was Tissue Products Technology Corporation, one of the Plaintiffs, but as a member of the OFTI Group it would essentially be paying itself.] …

[Footnote 4: If Tak Investments (LLC) was to be the maker of the notes, presumably it would have remained the maker even if one of the notes was assigned to a third party. The Plaintiffs do not explain why they would have assumed the role of maker simply by assigning a note to someone else. …] …

I conclude that, even if OFTI Group was obligated to pay itself principal and interest due under the four notes, its failure to do so does not excuse [Sharad] Tak and / or Tak Investments, LLC from transferring 27% of the company. The Defendant has not explained why such an obligation would prevent the OFTI Group from cancelling the notes or relieve Tak of the obligation that he transfer part of the company. Payment of principal and interest is therefore not properly considered as a “condition precedent” to any other part of the agreement.

CONCLUSION

In sum, I conclude that Plaintiffs’ motion for summary judgment on their claim for specific performance should be denied. This does not mean, however, that Plaintiffs are entitled to no relief at all. As noted above, the complaint also seeks “such other relief as the court deems just and proper.”  The Plaintiffs have sought, in the alternative, damages for nonpayment of the four notes, which in their calculation would amount to some $29 million. The Defendant believes such a claim would be barred by the statute of limitations, and in any event it was not pled in the complaint. It is conceivable, however, that such a claim would relate back to the filing of this action in 2014[.] Even if collection on the notes is no longer available, some other legal or equitable remedy might be appropriate in light of the unusual facts of the case. Given these circumstances, and the underdeveloped record, I am unable to conclude that judgment should be entered in the Defendant’s favor on the entire case at this time.

The Defendant’s motion for summary judgment is therefore GRANTED, to the extent I conclude that specific performance is not a viable remedy against Tak Investments, LLC. The Plaintiff’s motion is DENIED for the same reason. …

SO ORDERED this 2nd day of December, 2016.

11/1981 : According to Daniel Hopsicker:

Wally Hilliard’s links to American intelligence go back (at least) to November of 1981, when his insurance company, Wisconsin Employer’s Group, was bought out by Myron Du Bain, a World War II OSS/CIA operative and the Chairman of Fireman’s Fund of San Francisco.

Myron du Bain

We discovered the connection in a trip to Green Bay several years ago.

But only recently did we learn that Myron Du Bain’s life-long ties to the CIA included two stints at the helm of the Stanford Research Institute (SRI).

Wally Hilliard’s connection with Myron Du Bain may shed light on Hilliard’s curious metamorphosis after retiring to Florida in 1996.

Hilliard went from being a wealthy Green Bay WI insurance executive whose official corporate slogan was “Love God & Back the Pack” to fronting for clandestine operations bearing the almost unmistakable mark of the CIA.

1980’s – 1990’s : According to Law360.com, Paper mill seeks void of $17M IRS Deficiency:

Washington (March 11, 2015, 1:35 PM ET) — A Wisconsin holding company with stakes in various paper mill enterprises has told the U.S. Tax Court that the Internal Revenue Service wrongly served it with $17 million in deficiencies for the years 2004 to 2010 after wrongly disallowing deductions from bad debt held by an estranged family member.

[Van Den Heuvel] Family-owned VHC Inc. said that the company owned debt and not equity in relative Ron Van Den Heuvel‘s spinoff business, and that the IRS wrongly increased its taxable income during the period while disallowing deductions from the debt, which a series of bad deals had rendered illiquid.

VHC, which was first formed as a contracting firm by Ron’s [father] Raymond Van Den Heuvel, underwent “significant expansion” from the 1980s to the 1990s, prompting Ron to form his own company in 1997 and begin buying paper mill facilities and businesses, the petition said.

Though VHC declined Ron’s investment solicitations in his companies – saying doing so would conflict with its customer base – VHC began issuing debt in the form of promissory notes to Ron’s acquired companies for equipment and overhead costs, drawing from his experience as a sales representative for VHC along with potential funding from major banks and companies, including ENRON, which ultimately purchased a $5 million stake in the company in 1998, the petition said.

In 2014 Atty. Eric Decator and the other ACF / GCF owners filed a lawsuit for $397.5 Million in Cook Co., IL, Case  No. 14-L-2768Generation Clean Fuels, ACF Leasing & ACF Services  v.  Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin/Oneida Nation of Wisconsin & Oneida Seven Generations Corp., Green Bay Renewable Energy LLC, et al.

According to the May 22, 2014 Complaint w/ Exhibit ‘Master Lease Agreement’  filed in U.S. District Court, Middle District of Florida, Fort Meyers Division, Case No. 2:14-cv-283, Generation Clean Fuels  v.  Veterans Capital Corp. [Joseph E. Wold Jr., President]:

Plaintiff, GENERATION CLEAN FUELS, LLC [GCF] by and through its undersigned attorneys, sues Defendant VETERANS CAPITAL CORP. [Veterans] and alleges as follows:

PARTIES

1.  Plaintiff GCF, formerly known as Arland Clean Fuels, LLC, is a limited liability company organized under the laws of the State of Delaware with its principal place of business located in Cook County, Illinois.

2.  The members of GCF include four individuals and a limited liability company.

3.  Two of the individual members are residents of Cook County, Illinois [Louis Stern & Eric R. Decator].

4.  Two of the individual members are residents of Door County, Wisconsin [Michael S. Flaherty and Gaylen LaCrosse].

5.  The limited liability company member is a limited liability company organized under the laws of the State of Illinois with its principal place of business located in Cook County, Illinois, all of whose members and managers are residents of Cook County, Ilinois.

6.  Defendant Veterans Capital Corp. is a corporation organized under the laws of the State of Florida with, on information and belief, its principal place of business located at 1385 Areca Cove, Naples, Florida.

According to the May 28, 2014 Order by Judge John E. Steele in U.S. District Court, Middle District of Florida, Fort Meyers Division Case 2:14-cv-283, Generation Clean Fuels, LLC  v.  Veterans Capital Corp. [Joseph E. Wold Jr., President]:

ORDER

Subject matter jurisdiction is premised on the presence of diversity of jurisdiction between the parties. This requires complete diversity of citizenship.

Plaintiff Generation Clean Fuels, LLC identifies the members of its limited liabiiity company, however, the citizenship of the members is not provided. Plaintiff alleges that one member is a limited liability company whose members are “residents” of Illinois, and that the remaining individual members are “residents” of Illinois and Wisconsin. “In order to be a citizen of a State within the meaning of the delivery statute, a natural person must both be a citizen of the United States and be domiciled within the State.” Pleading residency is not the equivalent of pleading domicile. “A person’s domicile is the place of his true, fixed, and permanent home and principal establishment, and to which he has the intention of returning whenever he is absent therefrom.”

[Generation Clean Fuels] has failed to properly allege the citizenship of its members, and therefore no diversity of jurisdiction is alleged.

Complaint is dismissed for lack of subject-matter jurisdiction without prejudice.

Supplemental Examination of Ronald H. Van Den Heuvel
Before James O’Neil, Court Commissioner
May 8, 2015 10:00 a.m. to 12:59 p.m.

Kelly Lea Yessman Van Den Heuvel – Ronald’s wife & Co-Conspirator

Starting on page 22 of Exhibit B:

[Ron Van Den Heuvel:] My wife [Kelly Yessman Van Den Heuvel] and I have no checkbooks at any bank anyplace.

[Attorney Jonathan Smies of Godfrey & Kahn, on behalf of Plaintiff Dr. Marco Araujo:] So you’re testifying you do not have a checking account and your wife does not have a checking account at any –

[RVDH:]  Or a savings account anywhere.

[G&K:] You have no – you have no bank account, and your wife has no bank account?

[RVDH:]  No bank accounts.

[G&K:]  How long has that been the case?

[RVDH:]  Five years [since 2010].

[G&K:]  So I’m curious. Why is it that you don’t have any bank accounts?

[Atty. John Petitjean of Hinkfuss, Sickel, Petitjean & Wieting, counsel for Defendant Ron Van Den Heuvel:]  He’s here to answer questions about assets and liabilities, not why.

[G&K:]  How do you go about paying your bills without a bank account?

[RVDH:]  I have other people pay them, or I pay cash.

[G&K:]  So do you maintain a store of cash somewhere in your house or –

[RVDH:]  Nope.

[G&K:]  Do you have any cash on you today?

[RVDH:]  Fifty bucks maybe. I don’t know. Thirty bucks.

[Attorney Smies:]  I thought I saw a hundred dollar bill in there.

[RVDH:]  [The] gentleman I won this from decided to laminate it, so I can’t ever cash it. It’s useless. ‘To Ron Van Den Heuvel, from Chris Hartwig [Link 1]. I lost the bet. And he laminated it so I could never cash it.

[G&K:]  Oh. So other than that –

[Atty. Petitjean:]   Wait. I have to write this down… ‘Laminate bet losses.

[G&K:]  How do you know Chris Hartwig [Link 2]?

[Atty. Petitjean:]  Counsel, we’re getting far afield.

[G&K:]  Let’s go back then to this – the idea you pay cash. Are you paid wages in cash?

[RVDH:]  No.

[G&K:]  Where did you obtain the cash you have today in your wallet?

[RVDH:]  Somebody gave me cash.

[G&K:]  Who gives you cash?

[RVDH:]  I have seven brothers and sisters. I have a lot of friends, a lot of them.

[G&K:]  So these are birthday gifts? I don’t understand how – You solicit cash donations from friends and family?

[RVDH:]  No.

[G&K:]  Do you store – Do you have a safe in your house?

[RVDH:]  No.

[G&K:]  Do you store cash anywhere in your residence?

[RVDH:]  No.

[G&K:]  Do you store cash anywhere in an office you maintain?

[RVDH:]  No.

[G&K:]  Does your wife store cash in your house?

[RVDH:]  She has some in her purse, I’m sure, but –

[G&K:]  How often are you given cash by friends or family to meet your y y bills and other purchases that you need to make?

[RVDH:]  Weekly.

[G&K:]  And how much do you receive in cash weekly from these various individuals?

[RVDH:]  I wouldn’t understand that right now. I wouldn’t know.

[G&K:]  You don’t know how much you got last week?

[RVDH:]  No. No, I wouldn’t be able to keep track of it. Maybe $1,200.

[G&K:]  So you think maybe you received $1,200 in cash last week from – Who was that from?

[RVDH:]  Two brothers.

[G&K:]  And which of those brothers is that?

[RVDH:]  Tim [Van Den Heuvel] and Steve [Van Den Heuvel].

[G&K:]  How many brothers do you have again?

[RVDH:]  Five.

[G&K:]  Do Tim and Steve regularly give you cash?

[RVDH:]  They have several times. They can only give me $10,000 in a year. It never goes over that.

[G&K:]  You’re referring to the federal gift tax –

[RVDH:]  Right.

[G&K:]  – amount?

[Atty. Petitjean:]  Bad news for your brothers.
I think it’s $13,000 now.

[RVDH:]  Is it? It doesn’t matter. I mean, everybody knows where I’m going and what I’m doing and –

[G&K:]  Where are you going, and what are you doing?

[RVDH:]  Building Green Box. We’ll close. I just don’t know when.

[G&K:]  Do your brothers expect you to repay them these cash gifts. I guess you call them gifts given the federal income tax limit.

Original Green Box NA logo – Click for the 12/17/14 archive of www.GreenBoxNA.com

[RVDH:]  They were given some shares, so they want to make sure Green Box is – for a lot of reasons. They want to clean up the environment, and they want it to do the jobs. So they have a lot of reasons to see it come through.

[G&K:]  They have interest in Green Box NA, LLC, succeeding?

[RVDH:]  No, they don’t.

[G&K:]  Which Green Box entity do they have interest in?

[Ron Van Den Heuvel:]  Certain family members and certain trust for their kids are in E.A.R.T.H.  

[E.A.R.T.H. / EARTH = Environmental Advanced Reclamation Technology HQ, LLC;
formerly
Nature’s Choice Tissue Corp.;
renamed
Reclamation Technology Systems, LLC (RTS) on 06/17/16 under management of Stephen A. Smith’s company GlenArbor Partners, Inc.]

[G&K:]  I see. You have members of your family and/or their trusts that have some interest in the E.A.R.T.H. entity?

[RVDH:]   And a lot of friends.

[G&K:]  And a lot of friends?

[RVDH:]  Doc had shares in Green Box Green Bay.

[‘Doc’ is Plaintiff, MARCO ARAUJO, M.D. who unwisely ‘invested‘ in GREEN BOX NA GREEN BAY, LLC 

…and who later SUED RON VAN DEN HEUVEL & GREEN BOX NA for FRAUD with guidance & counsel from GODFREY & KAHN].

[G&K:]  So you think when you go to your friends and family and ask for money –

[RVDH:]  I don’t.

[G&K:]  You’ve never asked friends or family to give you cash?

[RVDH:]  I don’t.

[G&K:]  Have you ever asked your friends or family to give you cash?

[RVDH:]  No, they ask me how I’m doing, and I say, I could use a little help, but I’ll make it, and they give me a little help.

[G&K:]  Do these conversations occur on a weekly basis?

[RVDH:]  No, they stop by to see how I’m doing.

[G&K:]  But earlier you said it is weekly you get cash from friends or family members.

[RVDH:]  I have 60 different people that stop by, see how we’re doing, and put some money in my pocket.

[Atty. Petitjean:] Is 60 a hard number, or are you guessing?

[RVDH:]  More than 60.

[G&K:]  When you say –

[Atty. Petitjean:] So it’s a guess.

[RVDH:]  No, it’s not a guess. It’s more than 60.

[G&K:]  When you say “stop by,” do they come to your residence, they come to your business?

[RVDH:]  Come to the business.

[G&K:]  Do all of these people have some form of ownership interest in E.A.R.T.H. or some – one of these other entities in which you’re involved?

[RVDH:]  Most do.

[G&K:]  When you’re given cash as gifts from these individuals, is it your understanding it is cash for your personal use?

[RVDH:]  That’s why they give it to me. I have two minor children.

[G&K:]  How old are your kids?

[Atty. Petitjean:] Minor children.

[RVDH:]  My minor children are 12.

[G&K:]  Minor, okay, 12. And you have other older children?

[RVDH:]  Forty-two, 40, 38, 33, and 11 grandchildren.

[G&K:]  So the oldest you said 42? …So what day of the week typically are you getting these cash gifts from friends or family?

[RVDH:]  It’s anytime. I do a tremendous amount of services for a tremendous amount of people.

[G&K:]  What do you mean by services?

[RVDH:]  I carry license, sign reports, fix any software anybody has, do anything for anybody.

[G&K:]  So then are these payments compensation for your services?

[RVDH:]  Never asked for anything.

[G&K:]  You said you have roughly $50 with you here today, and you said you have no cash in your house. You’re not storing cash in your house; is that correct?

[RVDH:]  Nothing right now.

[G&K:]  When’s the last time you had cash in your house?

[RVDH:]  Last week.

[G&K:]  How much did you have?

[RVDH:]  I don’t know. Maybe $600 on a Monday, paid a bunch of bills. Maybe $400 on Thursday. Maybe $500 more on Saturday. It depends.

[G&K:]  How do you pay your bills in cash? Explain that process.

[RVDH:]  You go to the WPS window, and you pay a bill in cash.

[G&K:]  Fair enough for that. If you have a creditor or someone else you own money to that isn’t local, do you obtain a money order or some other form of payment with your cash?

[RVDH:]  You can go to any bank, put cash in, get a cashier’s check, and send it. Anytime, anyplace.

[G&K:]  Is that what you typically do to pay your bills that you need to send away?

[RVDH:]  I can’t put it in an account because I don’t have one. I have to order it on the account or have somebody else pay the bill on my behalf, which has happened.

[G&K:]  And who typically will pay bills on your behalf?

[RVDH:]  Various people.

[G&K:]  Can you give me a name at least?

[RVDH:]  I’ve had Mike [Byrnes] pay a WPS bill. People pay bills. Dave Williquette paid bills for me. Now, if Dave come [to] me and said, Ron, I need a general contractor’s license in Iowa, I’d sign it for Dave. Wouldn’t charge him anything, but I’d sign it for him.

[G&K:]  What authority do you have to sign a license to be a general contractor in Iowa?

[RVDH:]  I passed the test there.

[G&K:]  So you’re licensed in Iowa as –

[RVDH:]  Forty-seven states as a general contractor, HVAC contractor, electrical contractor, pipe fitter, and millwright.

[G&K:]  And you have licensing in 47 states?

[RVDH:]  I have 47 licenses that are from California to Florida to Maine to Washington. We don’t have license in every single state because we don’t work in every single state. I don’t work in Hawaii. I don’t work in Alaska. I don’t work in South Dakota. I don’t work in New Mexico.

[G&K:]  And when you say “work,” are these construction projects you’ve overseen as a general contractor?

[Atty. Petitjean:]  Are you asking is Ron overseeing this individually?

[G&K:]  Yeah.

[RVDH:]  No, and you don’t have to. You just have to take out the license. A lot of people can’t pass tests. A lot of people can’t pass tests to be a doctor. They are not a doctor. They can’t practice.

[G&K:]  But you’ve passed, it sounds like, a lot of tests.

[RVDH:]  I’ve never failed one in my life.

[G&K:]  How many have you taken?

[RVDH:]  Forty-seven.

[G&K:]  Forty-seven. Is any payment required to obtain these?

[RVDH:]  Any what?

[G&K:]  Is any payment required to obtain the licenses?

[RVDH:]  Yes.

[G&K:]  And how do you pay for that?

[RVDH:]  People give me cash pay, and I pay for it in cash when I’m there. It’s not a lot of money, $200, $500.

[G&K:]  It adds up, though, if you have 47 of them.

[RVDH:]  It sure does.

[G&K:]  So if on average it’s on a weekly basis you’re receiving cash, gifts from friends and family and in the last instance I think you said it was $1,200 cash gift from your two brothers; is that fair?

[RVDH:]  Went grocery shopping. had to pay for some groceries, electric bill, and a few things got paid last month. At the start of last week I mean.

[G&K:]  Is that the typical amount you receive as a gift every week, $1,200?

[RVDH:]  Somebody might come by and Jim Rottier might come by and I don’t need anything. You don’t need anything? You’re doing alright? Yeah.

[G&K:]  It’s always – It’s your testimony it’s always these other people asking you, taking the initiative, do you need anything. It’s never you asking anyone for cash?

[RVDH:]  I’ve made 74 people in this town millionaires.

[Atty. Smies of G&K:] How did you do that?

[Ron Van Den Heuvel:] Gave them shares in companies I’ve owned, Vos [Electric Inc.], Spirit [Construction Services Inc.], Best Built [Inc.]. All kinds of people owe what they have due to my hard work. They want to do something for me? I accept it.

Exhibit C:
Supplemental Examination of Ronald H. Van Den Heuvel
Before James O’Neil, Court Commissioner
May 15, 2015
10:07 a.m. to 11:04 a.m.

Page 141:

[Atty. Smies of G&K:]  Do you recall stating in a hearing just few days ago on – in the divorce case?

[Ron Van Den Heuvel:]  Yes.

Jan Marie Summers Van Den Heuvel (Ron’s ex-wife)

[G&K:]  Do you recall stating you had plans to ensure that you would get $50,000 paid on that property by today, the 15th of May?

[Atty. Petitjean of Hinkfuss, Sickel, Petitjean & Wieting:]  Counsel, as to his assets and his liabilities, he’s already testified as to – that he owes his wife – ex-wife money. And he’s already testified that he does not have $50,000.

[G&K:]  Do you know if that’s coming from one of these friends or family members that are –

[Atty. Petitjean:]  Counsel, unless it’s a– unless you’re talking about whether he has $50,000, I’m instructing him not to answer.

[G&K:]  Mr. Van Den Heuvel, do you remember saying you made 74 millionaires in the Green Bay area?

[RVDH:]  I made what?

[G&K:]  Seventy-four millionaires in this area.

[RVDH:]  Yes.

[G&K:]  Who are some of those people?

[Atty. Petitjean:]  Counsel, unless it’s – it applies to Ron’s assets or liabilities, we’re just going through the phonebook again.

[G&K:]  Well, I think his prior testimony was that it was these sorts of individuals that felt indebted to Mr. Van Den Heuvel and periodically offer him cash.

[Atty. Petitjean:]  Do any of these people owe you money?

[Ron Van Den Heuvel:]  No.

[Godfrey & Kahn:]  Why don’t we take maybe ten minutes here for a break and regroup and see where we’re at.


12/02/94 : Spirit Fabs, Inc. filed Articles of Correction w/ WDFI



04/28/95 : April 28, 1995 Oneida Appeals Commission Decision in Docket # 95-EP-0004, Rick Holschuh v. Oneida Police Department & James Danforth, wherein Diane Danforth House appeared as OPD’s State Licensed Attorney [but she wasn’t, so she lied about it]


06/26/95 : Zafari’s, Inc. changed Registered Agent w/ WDFI to Saboor Zafari


09/14/95 : Green Bay Air Charter, Inc. adminstratively Dissolved w/ WDFI; Registered Agent Curtis L. Hartwig; Started on 02/17/82



1996 : According to the June 25, 2015, AGREED JUDGMENTJudge Barbara B. Crabb; U.S. District Court, Western District of Wisconsin, Case No. 3:2014-cv-408, United States of America  v.  Patricia Hilliard, Wallace Hillard, Bank of America NA, Hilliard Limited Partnership, Daniel Hilliard and Andrew Hilliard as Trustees of the Wallace J. Hilliard Flint Trust, and Green Bay Air, Inc.

ORDERED, ADJUDGED AND DECREED that:

1. Wallace Hilliard is indebted to the United States for the Form 1040 federal income taxes, penalties and additions to tax assessed against him for the 1996 tax year, in the aggregate amount of $2,258,402.04 as of May 29, 2015, plus interest and other additions to tax allowed by law accruing thereafter … until paid.

2. Wallace Hilliard is indebted to the United States for the Form 1040 federal income taxes, penalties and additions to tax assessed against him for the 1997 tax year, in the aggregate amount of $726,963.33 as of May 29, 2015, plus interest and other additions to tax allowed by law accruing thereafter under … until paid.

After retiring to Naples in 1996, Hilliard hobnobbed with an assortment of international ‘players” who are decidedly uncharacteristic of circles  a retired-to Florida insurance executives might normally travel in. 

A retired insurance executive from Green Bay Wisconsin, Hilliard appears to be the last person anyone would suspect of up-to-their-necks involvement in international intrigue, drug trafficking, or geo-political stratagems. 

Aviation mechanic Dave Montgomery, known as “Jet Dave” at the Naples Airport, thinks that may have been the point. Montgomery witnessed a secretive meeting between Hilliard and the founder of Waste Management, garbage king Wayne Huizenga, conducted entirely inside a helicopter on the tarmac at Naples airport.

Huizenga, who at that time was also the owner of the Miami Dolphins,  flew in on a chopper with a Dolphins helmet emblazoned on the side, Montgomery said. Hilliard went out to meet it, and got in.

Then the two men then sat inside the helicopter for almost an hour.

“And it was hot that day in Naples,” the aviation mechanic said.  “And they just sat there, in the sun.” 

Naples flight manager Danielle Clarke told us Hilliard didn’t act like someone who had retired. Naples was in the middle of the action. 9/11 hijackers Atta and Marwan flew there regularly.

“The man quickly purchased—and in very short order—a fleet of fifteen jets. He spent between $30 and $40 million on planes. He still (in 2003)  has 20 very expensive airplanes left, including Lear 35s, and Gulfstreams.”

Clarke, a British aviatrix who came to Florida after her British pilot husband died, snorts at Hilliard’s attempt at portraying a “pious man.”

“Wally came in quite a bit, seemed very compassionate, made a lot of references to God,” she said. “You’d be talking about business; then all of a sudden he’d mention the Good Lord.”

She waved a hand dismissively. “It got to be a bit much.” 

Especially in light of the fact that Hilliard’s taste in secretaries was particularly un-Godly. Summer (Hilliard’s personal secretary) was 5 foot 7, long blond hair, and a real looker, Danielle Clarke said.

“She wore exceedingly short skirts and very low cut tops,” Clarke remarked tartly.

“You struggled to find a bit of cloth on the woman!”

Also, at some point in there, 22-year old Summer Jeffries was busted for heroin at the airport.

re: Diane Danforth [House]

This is to advise you that [Diane Danforth House] was relieved of all duties and responsibilities as an attorney employed by the Oneida Tribe [of Indians of Wisconsin / Oneida Nation of Wisconsin] on December 7, 1995. Ms. Danforth submitted a resignation which was accepted by this office.  Ms. Danforth is not an attorney licenced to practice law in the State of Wisconsin.

Diane Danforth House fraudulently acted as the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin’s Police Department / ONWIPD’s State Licensed Attorney in various legal cases & court hearings, yet she was allowed to resign rather than being fired and held criminally liable for pretending to be an Officer of the Court.

04/07/96 : Green Bay Press-Gazette, Page 4, ‘Golf course developer keeps fighting the tribe,’ By Don Langenkamp

HOBART – If any one tract of land in Brown County embodies the friction in cultures between the Oneida Tribe and non-Indians, it is the Thornberry Creek development. The 590-acre golf course and housing development in Hobart has been a battleground for the tribe and owner Jack Schweiner since 1992. And it still is, even though the nine-hole golf course is operating and Schweiner now has all necessary permits to allow construction of homes and 18 more golf holes to begin. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers issued the final permit in late February. The entire development is on original reservation land. Schweiner feels the tribe has put him through the regulatory wringer for several reasons: The size of his 312 home-sites, which average about one-half acre. Tribal leaders say their objections would have been mild if the lots averaged 2’2 acres. A half-acre, they say, creates too much density. But there’s the rub. Too much density to the tribe is just right for the Brown County Planning Commission, which said the smaller lots were necessary for sewer and water service. County planners don’t want to approve sewer service to a new development unless there is enough density to make it cost-efficient, county planner Ken Jaworski said.

The Oneida Nation of Wisconsin eventually purchased Thornberry Creek, but the Oneida Business Committee lied to General Tribal Council by falsely saying the final decision would come back to GTC for approval. It never did, and the OBC has never been honest about the true cost of the golf course, nor how much has been siphoned off by Tribal officials in freebies, gimmees, and fraudulent bookkeeping.

11/02/97 : Ron Van Den Heuvel gave $250 contribution to Scott McCallum; Employer VOS Electric

By Daniel Bice
November 2, 1997

Businessman Ronald Van Den Heuvel says he donated money through Wisconsin residents to Gov. Tommy Thompson’s campaign for several years while living in Georgia — an apparent violation of state election laws.

In a recent interview, Van Den Heuvel was questioned about $10,000 in campaign donations that he and his wife made one day before the state approved a large issue of tax-free bonds for one of his businesses. Van Den Heuvel responded by saying he had given similar amounts in the past.

When asked why reporters had not spotted those earlier donations on Thompson’s financial reports, Van Den Heuvel said, “Yeah, you may not have because when I was a Georgia resident, I gave it to people here.”

Those Wisconsin individuals, whom he did not name, then turned the money over to Thompson, he said. Van Den Heuvel, owner of VOS Electric in Green Bay and other businesses, said he moved to Wisconsin three years ago.

“I didn’t want to do it as a non-resident, which is fine,” he said. “You got to do some separate things if you’re a non-resident. I didn’t want to do that.”

Kevin Kennedy, executive director of the state Elections Board, said state law specifically bars people from laundering campaign donations or knowingly accepting laundered funds. Kennedy said it could be either a civil or criminal offense, depending on whether prosecutors believe they can prove the campaign money was given or received in intentional violation of the law.

Kevin Keane, spokesman for the governor, said the governor and his campaign were unaware of any laundered money. If Van Den Heuvel did pass money through others to Thompson, Keane said, the governor will return the money immediately once it is identified.

C. David Stellpflug, Van Den Heuvel’s lawyer, called the Journal Sentinel to say that his client was talking about giving money to political parties. But in his interview, Van Den Heuvel was critical of parties, specifically saying he did not give to the Republican National Committee.

“To me, parties — they kind of get in the way,” Van Den Heuvel said. “I like to know the person and what kind of person that person is.”

November 2, 1997

Like others before him, Ron Van Den Heuvel, a Green Bay-area entrepreneur, found the route to state largess with the help of Gov. Tommy G. Thompson.

Van Den Heuvel hit the jackpot in late September when an obscure state board awarded $24 million worth of tax-free bond financing to help him reopen an Oconto Falls tissue factory — the largest such approval this year and among the largest ever made by the state.

The award culminated nearly a year’s effort that included a formal application through the Commerce Department. But Van Den Heuvel worked informal channels to Thompson as well. And last May — the day before an initial financing award was made by the state — Van Den Heuvel and his wife donated a total of $10,000 to the governor’s campaign fund. Van Den Heuvel said he had been asked for the donation by Thompson’s fund-raiser in November 1996.

When asked by reporters last month about the campaign donations, Thompson moved quickly to return the money.

The subsidy will save Van Den Heuvel’s company at least $2 million in short-term financing costs, Van Den Heuvel said. The financing covers nearly half of the $52 million cost of renovating the Oconto Falls factory.

The circumstances of the case and others reviewed by the Journal Sentinel in an eight-month investigation suggest a trend in which donors and well-connected firms enjoy a close and mutually beneficial relationship with the Thompson administration.

“You don’t pay, you don’t play,” said a veteran lobbyist, speaking of state government generally, including the governor and legislators.

For the series, the Journal Sentinel interviewed more than 120 people: Government officials, lobbyists, business executives and others, many with direct experience in how insiders do business with the Thompson administration. The newspaper also examined records from eight state agencies and created or expanded computer databases of Thompson’s telephone records, state contracts, campaign donations and campaign spending.

The investigation found that campaign donations often correlate with success in winning state contracts, direct aid and other favorable treatment. Road builders, utilities, investment bankers and other groups have found their way to the inside track with Thompson’s administration.

For example, executives of four top road-building companies that have won $218 million in state contracts since mid-1995 also have donated at least $119,000 to Thompson, according to state records.

State law bans state officials from personally gaining from their positions, from swapping state aid for campaign donations. Using surrogates to make such deals also would be illegal.

Allegations of influence peddling in the Thompson administration are the subject of an ongoing state Justice Department investigation. The investigation has focused on whether state favors have been granted in exchange for political donations. That probe started early this year with utility deals but has broadened to include other areas of state government, according to persons close to the case. The department declined to comment.

A Case Study

The Oconto Falls paper mill financing provides a case study on how influence works in the Thompson administration and who can help get deals done.

Last year, Van Den Heuvel’s Re-Box Packaging Co. hired investment banker P. Nicholas Hurtgen, a former top aide to Thompson and the brother-in-law of Thompson’s paid fund-raiser, Phil Prange. Hurtgen was hired as the project’s financial adviser, but he also helped open doors for Van Den Heuvel with the governor and other administration officials.

At a face-to-face meeting with Thompson in his Capitol office last January, the governor made a point of telling Van Den Heuvel that granting state aid wasn’t his call, but he encouraged him anyway. “I told him to work with (Commerce Secretary) Bill McCoshen. I’m almost positive of it.

He also said: “I encourage people, that’s my style,” Thompson added. ” ‘Sounds good! Let’s do it! Let’s get it done!’ That’s Tommy Thompson,” he said.

Van Den Heuvel says he recalled Thompson saying to him: “I think it’s a hell of an idea.”

Van Den Heuvel said that he and his wife, Jan, donated a total of $10,000 to the governor’s campaign account earlier this year — the checks were delivered May 15, one day before Re-Box Packaging won state approval for $9 million in tax-free bonds. That approval was intended for financing to build a De Pere factory for Re-Box.

Van Den Heuvel and two partners also each gave $500 to the governor three days before the state’s five-member Volume Cap Allocation Council voted on the financial aid. Three other partners gave a total of $2,100 between late April and June.

An hour after the newspaper asked Thompson about the donations, Thompson’s press secretary, Kevin Keane, said the Van Den Heuvels’ donations would be returned because “we are just not comfortable about” the timing of the cash gifts. Van Den Heuvel later confirmed that $10,000 of his donations were returned. Keane said the other donations might be returned.

Before using the $9 million in state financing, Van Den Heuvel decided to drop his aid application for the De Pere plant and apply for even more aid for PCDI Oconto Falls Tissue Inc., the tissue-mill project. The council that awarded the earlier sum readily agreed to authorize the $24 million in financing aid.

Commerce Department staffers who reviewed the Oconto proposal, however, declined to make any recommendation on the request, also noting the large sum, if approved, would “significantly impact” the amount of tax-free bonding authority available for other projects. Numerous other projects proposed by other firms were not funded by the council.

Van Den Heuvel made the project switch, he said, because the Oconto Falls mill offered the opportunity to get government financing aid for a much larger portion of that project’s overall costs than the $9 million financing offered him for the De Pere project.

Van Den Heuvel, Thompson and other administration officials say the project was approved on its merits and there was no link between the campaign cash and the state aid.

“None whatsoever,” Thompson said. “Absolutely none.”

The donations “wouldn’t have anything to do with” the state aid, Van Den Heuvel said.

Officials said the Oconto Falls mill will provide 160 jobs in an area hit hard by this year’s plant closure. The $24 million in financing aid, while large, was far less than the total of $70 million that Van Den Heuvel originally requested for the De Pere Re-Box project, state officials noted.

Commerce Secretary Bill McCoshen also stressed that the aid, while allocated by the state, actually comes from the federal government, and no state tax dollars are involved.

Under the financing plan, company executives also could pay themselves and other company employees bonuses and pay shareholders dividends with the tax-free bonds, Van Den Heuvel said. They would not have been able to do that with taxable bonds.

_____________________________

The method for getting campaign money from firms interested in state help includes pleas made at opportune times.

In the Oconto Falls case, fund-raiser Prange called on Van Den Heuvel last November for a donation, a few months after Van Den Heuvel’s request for state aid had first been broached, according to Van Den Heuvel and state Commerce Department records. Prange was aware of Van Den Heuvel’s pending request for state financing aid when he asked for a donation, Van Den Heuvel said. Prange had approached him for donations in previous years.

“I made that $10,000 commitment to him in November (of 1996), OK?” said Van Den Heuvel. He claimed he’d been a longtime large donor to Thompson’s campaign, but the governor’s campaign finance records show just two other, smaller donations from Van Den Heuvel before the big donations were made last May.

Thompson insisted he never personally solicits donations and knows few details of how his campaign operation functions, despite his aggressive hands-on approach to campaigning and governing. But interviews with Thompson insiders, phone records and his own campaign records suggest the governor has taken a much more active role in his campaign money-raising machine.

[L]obbyists for major firms and interest groups who do business with the state, and business executives interviewed by the newspaper, said the fund-raising events are sold as prime opportunities to bend the governor’s ear on state issues — often worth millions to major players in issues ranging from utility regulation to Indian gaming. The fund-raisers often include discussion of those issues.

A second lobbyist said Thompson’s fund-raising machine “systematically and methodically” milked firms with state business for donations. “Everybody understands if you go and ask the government to do something, you are going to have to make contributions.”

Both lobbyists asked not to be named, saying they feared retribution for speaking out.

State phone records also showed top aides to the governor, with whom he regularly confers, made numerous calls to the Thompson campaign office and GOP fund-raisers.

Klauser, in his last three months as Thompson’s top aide, called Prange 19 times, his phone records show. And Commerce Secretary McCoshen, who oversees a wide range of state subsidy programs for businesses, including the Oconto Falls financing, called Prange and the governor’s campaign office 21 times since January 1995.

State phone records show a series of calls during the period Van Den Heuvel was negotiating for his state financing aid, including a string of calls linking Thompson, his campaign, top state officials and Hurtgen, Van Den Heuvel’s project manager.

Thompson acknowledged that he might have talked to Hurtgen, his former aide, about Van Den Heuvel’s request for state financing aid.

“Possibly could have,” Thompson said. “I don’t know.”

Hurtgen declined to comment. Matthews and McCoshen said their calls to Hurtgen were not related to the Van Den Heuvel project.

“I’ve been a supporter of Gov. Thompson for a long time. I happen to think he’s the best governor,” Van Den Heuvel said. 

Green Bay-area entrepreneur Ron Van Den Heuvel and his [ex-]wife [Jan Marie Summers Van Den Heuvel] donated a total of $10,000 to Thompson’s campaign fund last May a day before Van Den Heuvel won state approval for $9 million in tax-free bonds to build a De Pere factory.

Van Den Heuvel and two partners also each gave $500 to the governor three days before the state’s five-member Volume Cap Allocation Council voted on the financial aid.

Three other partners gave a total of $2,100 between late April and June.

An hour after the newspaper asked Thompson about the donations, Thompson’s press secretary, Kevin Keane, said the Van Den Heuvels’ donations would be returned because “we are just not comfortable about” the timing of the cash gifts.

Van Den Heuvel later told the paper that $10,000 of his donations were returned.

A direct link between campaign contributions and favoritism is the Holy Grail of campaign finance reporting.

In the 1997 series “Money and Influence,” Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporters Steve Schultze and Daniel Bice connected campaign contributions to preferential treatment by Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson.

The two reporters examined records from eight state agencies, state contracts, campaign contributions and expenditures, and Thompson’s phone records. The eight-month investigation revealed a startling correlation between those who gave money to Thompson’s campaign and those who got lucrative state contracts.

..,Schultze and Bice found that Ron Van Den Heuvel, a Wisconsin businessman, donated $10,000 to Thompson’s campaign fund the day before a state agency awarded him $24 million in tax-free bond financing to build a paper-manufacturing plant. Van Den Heuvel says a Thompson fund raiser asked him for the donation. The newspaper’s inquiry forced Thompson to return the contribution.

Schultze and Bice say the Van Den Heuvel affair was not an isolated incident. “The [Van Den Heuvel] case and others reviewed by The Journal Sentinel in an eight-month investigation suggest a trend in which donors and well-connected firms enjoy a close and mutually beneficial relationship with the Thompson administration,” they wrote.

You can investigate that claim for yourself by downloading current Wisconsin campaign finance data from the CFIC or by searching the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign Web site at http://www.wisdc.org/.

Another strength of using campaign finance data is the ability to show how big money flows around the sometimes useless legal breakwaters that are meant to stem the tide.

01/1999 : According to the August 8, 2005 Decision in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit – 403 F.3d 1050 [modified],  Livid Holdings Ltd.  v.  Salomon Smith Barney, Inc.; Smith Barney Holdings Inc., BNY Clearing Servics LLC, successor in interest to Schroders & Co, Inc.; Andrew Van Der Vord; Robert Chamine; Michael Dura; Robert Hamecs; William Hurst; Leon Kalvaria; Ilan Kraufthal; John O’Donogue; Herc Segalas, Jed Sherwindt; James Stone; Fredering Talyor; Samuel Weinhoff:

Livid’s claims arise out of its December 1999 purchase of $10 million worth of shares in Purely Cotton, Inc. (“PCI”) stock. In January 1999, Schroders helped PCI arrange a private placement of $25 million worth of its stock. For this purpose, Schroders created a Confidential Offering Memorandum (“the Memorandum”), which outlined PCI’s operations, business plan, and financial position. After the distribution of the Memorandum to potential investors, Livid alleges that UAE Investments, Ltd. (“UAE”), a Gibralter-based company, agreed to purchase over 98% of the offering. The individual Defendants, who were directors and/or officers of Schroders, agreed to purchase the remaining stock. Livid alleges that there was never a contractual document requiring UAE to pay more than $2 million of the $25 million purchase price.

In September 1999, PCI asked Schroders for additional copies of the Memorandum in order to solicit additional investors. Livid alleges that before providing PCI with these extra copies, Defendant Van der Vord, the managing director at Schroders in charge of the offering, and his team amended the Memorandum by attaching the following notice:

This Memorandum was written in January 1999 and represents the original Offering Memorandum distributed to potential investors in the Company’s $25 million private equity fund raising. Subsequent to the writing and distribution of this document the Company may have undergone various changes including but not limited to management changes, ownership changes and business strategy changes. This document has not been updated or amended to reflect any events that have occurred since January 1999. As such, it does not reflect the fact that the above-mentioned $25 million private equity fund raising has been completed.

Livid’s claims against Defendants arise out of the last sentence of this notice. This sentence, Livid contends, implies that the proceeds of the initial $25 million sale had been received by PCI, but that the Memorandum had not yet been updated to reflect this additional capital. At the time this notice was written, however, UAE and the Defendants had actually paid less than $2 million to PCI. Livid alleges that additional payments on UAE’s balance were conditional on UAE’s approval of a PCI business plan and a new chief executive officer — meaning that UAE was not actually bound to pay for the PCI stock. Livid further alleges that all of the named Defendants bought stock through this initial offering on the same terms as UAE, and therefore knew that the sale was incomplete when the notice was attached to the Memorandum for the express purpose of attracting additional investors. Defendants do not contest that they had such knowledge. In addition, Livid alleges that Defendants had a motive to deceive potential investors because PCI had not yet paid Schroders for the services it provided in connection with the first fund-raising campaign. In essence, Livid contends that Defendants had a motive to try to bring additional capital into PCI — to increase the likelihood that it would be paid for past services rendered.

The district court dismissed each of Livid’s claims with prejudice. With respect to the federal claim, the district court found that Livid failed to plead adequately that the notice statement was a material misrepresentation, upon which it reasonably relied in purchasing PCI stock. In addition, the district court found that Livid’s complaint did not satisfy the heightened pleading standards for scienter under the 1995 Private Securities Litigation Reform Act (“PSLRA”).  …

The district court based its dismissal of Livid’s state tort claims for fraudulent and negligent misrepresentation on its holding that Livid’s reliance on the notice’s statements was unreasonable. Under either tort claim, Washington law requires plaintiffs to show reasonable reliance. ESCA Corp. v. KPMG Peat Marwick, 135 Wash. 2d 820, 959 P.2d 651, 654 (1998) (negligent misrepresentation); Haberman, 744 P.2d at 1070 (fraudulent misrepresentation). Here again, because we find that the district court erred in determining, as a matter of law, that Livid failed to allege adequately reasonable reliance on the statements in the notice as to Livid’s federal securities claim, we must similarly reverse the district court’s decision as to Livid’s state tort claims.

CONCLUSION

Plaintiff’s complaint states a claim for federal securities fraud, state securities fraud, and state tort violations — even under the heightened pleading standards of the PSLRA. The case is remanded to the district court for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.

REVERSED AND REMANDED.

SUMMER 1999 : According to Wikipedia’s ‘Huffman Aviation’ page:

Huffman Aviation was purchased by Dutchman Rudi Dekkers in 1999. At the time of purchase, the school had a fleet of 12 small aircraft. Huffman offered private pilot, instrument rating, Commercial pilot, Multi-Engine Ratings, and flight instructor training, but did not offer training on larger, jet aircraft.

More than 80% of the school’s students were foreign nationals, following a marketing campaign designed to attract overseas students It also suffered from a poor local reputation, as the Venice Gondolier ran continuing stories about the flight school’s troubles.

According to Daniel Hopsicker:

Almost immediately after its purchase in the summer of 1999 by Wallace J. Hilliard and Rudi Dekkers, the aviation facility became the center of a series of financial scams that included Ponzi schemes, pension fraud, international stock swindles, and fraudulent bankruptcies which have altogether looted more than $1 billion from the American economy.

Huffman Aviation, the flight training facility which housed both of the terrorist pilots who crashed passenger jets into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, has been operating as a continuing criminal enterprise, as defined by the Federal RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization) Act.

04/04/00 : William C. Bain gave $250 contribution to Scott McCallum; Employer VOS Electric


04/27/00 : Steven C. Peters gave $100 contribution to Scott McCallum; No Employer Identified

Steven Peters was an employee of Ron Van Den Heuvel at Oconto Falls Tissue Inc., became Registered Agent of Recovering Aqua Resources Technologies, Inc. [RARTI] on 02/07/01, and was also a Partner with Ron, Artley Skenandore Jr., and OSGC in Nature’s Way Tissue Corp. on 12/26/03.

Steven C. Peters was also – like William C. ‘Bill’ Bain – a ‘straw borrower’ in Ron & Kelly Van Den Heuvel’s bank fraud scheme, to which Co-Conspirator Paul Piikkila has already pled guilty.

Mr. Skenandore had no expertise in the paper industry. Nevertheless, he was made president.

Mr. Skenandore was the Chief Executive Officer of Nature’s Way [Tissue Corp]. He was listed on the signature card of the checking accounts of Nature’s Way and signed all of the checks. He agreed with Mr. Van Den Heuvel and Mr. Peters to pool all of the funds coming in for use at whatever entity needed it most. He made the recommendations with the controller on what and whom to pay. He admitted that he allowed the monies to be pooled and used for other purposes than paying the withholding taxes.

First, [Artley Skenandore Jr.] was the President of Nature’s Way. We have previously stated that a President necessarily has the requisite authority, and nothing in this case showed otherwise, the contractual arrangement with Mr. Van Den Heuvel notwithstanding.

Second, as the quote from the accountant in the previous section shows, Mr. Peters and Mr. Skenandore had numerous meetings where the two decided to pay other obligations, and Mr. Skenandore admitted on the stand to ‘carrying over’ the withholding tax liability. Mr. Skenandore’s defense was that he relied on the parent company for expertise in the paper business, but that is unconvincing and does not excuse paying other creditors first.

The testimony was that Nature’s Way [Tissue Corp.] had money coming in from the parent company, just not enough to pay all of the creditors. Clearly, he and Mr. Peters determined which bills to pay out of the money that was coming in.

IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Department’s assessment toMr. Skenandore is affirmed [regarding withholding tax periods beginning December 1, 2006, and ending March 31, 2009].

06/03/00 : Re-Box Packaging, Inc. reverts name to Re-Box Paper, Inc. w/WDFI; later renamed Eco Fiber, Inc. on 03/28/05 [different than EcoFibre, Inc. but Ron Van Den Heuvel was the Registered Agent for both]


07/03/00 : According to Wikipedia’s ‘Huffman Aviation’ page:

     

The business gained further notoriety after the September 11th attacks, when it was revealed that Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi had both attended the school to learn how to fly small aircraft.

On July 3, 2000, both applied to the school; Atta claimed to be of royal Saudi descent and presented Marwan as his bodyguard.

In August, the school filed the necessary INS [Immigration & Naturalization Services] paperwork in order to allow both pilots to switch from ‘tourist’ Visas, to ‘student’, in order to allow them to enroll in the school’s piloting program. While they were allowed to apply, final verification did not reach the school until March 11, 2002, 6 months after both pilots had been killed in the attacks.

For a short while, during their time at the school, both Marwan and Atta lived with a company employee named Charlie Voss for a few days, paying him about $250 cash. After a week, Voss reportedly kicked them out of his house for insulting his wife.


07/25/00 : According to Daniel Hopsicker:

   

Compounding the sense of mystery and cover-up surrounding the terrorists’ stay in Venice is another unexplained fact:

Less than three weeks after Mohamed Atta and Marwan Al-Shehhi began flying lessons on July 3, 2000 at Huffman Aviation in Venice FL,  Huffman owner Wally Hilliard‘s Learjet was swarmed by DEA agents brandishing submachine guns after it landed, on July 25, at Orlando Executive Airport.

The Lear, agents discovered, was carrying 43 lbs. of heroin, an amount known in the trade as “heavy weight.”

The Orlando Sentinel called it “the largest seizure of heroin in Central Florida history.” 

Today we’re placing online, and in perpetuity,  the DEA affidavit, and the forfeiture hearing regarding Hilliard’s Learjet.

In a virtually unprecedented action, the DEA argued that Hilliard was not merely an innocent aircraft owner. He hadn’t just been victimized and remained unaware while crafty drug traffickers chartered his plane.

Nuh-uh.

Hilliard lost the plane.

•  FINALLY! Rudi Dekkers behind bars for Drug Trafficking

Dekkers first came to the attention of U.S. law enforcement in 1996, according to sources who worked with him at the Naples Airport. He was the subject of a multi-agency Federal task force, investigating allegations, and numerous sources said they were much more than mere allegations, that Dekkers was exporting state-of-the-art computer memory chips out of the U.S. illegally.

However, no charges were ever filed. In the case of someone who’s been the subject of a multiple agency task force, this is highly unusual. An executive who worked at Naples Airport, directly under Wally Hilliard, said, “You don’t get the FBI, US Customs, and the DEA, on your ass all at once for singing too loud in church.”

The suspicion among aviation observers in SW Florida was, and remains, that Dekkers was offered—and accepted—some kind of deal.  Last week, in Houston, for an as-yet unknown reason Rudi Dekkers finally ran out of “get out of jail free” cards.

It had been a long run.

According to Daniel Hopsicker:

In 1976 Senator Frank Church’s Committee grilled CIA General Counsel Lawrence Houston about the Agency’s questionable and illegal operation of proprietary airlines.  Church was clear that he wanted the CIA to divest itself of what had grown into the largest airline in the world.

The CIA has never been the kind of Agency to take the heat if there’s anyone else around to throw under the bus. Lawrence Houston offered that the CIA had routinely used the U.S. Forest Service to provide cover for its covert activities. And, he said…there was more.

The U.S. Forest Service had been successfully infiltrated by CIA, confessed Houston. The CIA even shared an address with the Forest Service’s Air Research and Development unit in Alexandria, VA. He allowed that perhaps a re-think was in order. Mostly of the Forest Service.

Back then, it was open season on the CIA. Over little nit-picky things like brainwashing, or drugging American citizens without their knowledge, or assassination.

But the Agency had anticipated a move to clip its wings.  It had quickly given away its clandestinely-owned air carriers, folding them into one of its lesser-known proprietary airlines, Evergreen International. Then it very publicly freed Evergreen from its state of indentured servitude, and set it up at Marana Air Base in Arizona, which the CIA owned.

It had already sheep-dipped a new fleet of planes through the U.S. Forest Service.  One of those planes— 40 years later—has just been seized at an airport in Australia.

Something about 35 kilos of heroin.

Evergreen International Aviation, Inc. was a global aviation services company based in McMinnville, Oregon, United States. Founded in 1960, Evergreen was primarily known for commercial helicopter operations in agricultural and forestry applications. The airline division, Evergreen International Airlines, operated all-cargo Boeing 747 freighters. Evergreen ceased all aviation-related operations in 2013 due to financial challenges.

Evergreen was part of the US Civil Reserve Air Fleet and the International Peace Operations Association. It was known to do work for the United States federal government, including fire suppression for the U.S. Forest Service, troop transportation in the Gulf War of 1991, as well as helicopter transportation for oil rig firefighters at the end of hostilities. The company provided aviation services for the Central Intelligence Agency as well, including transporting the Shah of Iran from Panama to the United States in 1980.[4] 

On November 8, 2013 Evergreen International Airlines, a subsidiary of Evergreen International Aviation, announced via a voicemail to their employees that all operations would cease effective November 29, 2013.[9]

In 2014, Evergreen declared Chapter 7 bankruptcy[10][11] and began a liquidation of assets, including its headquarters campus in McMinnville.[12]

Evergreen International Airlines was a cargo airline based in McMinnville, Oregon, United States. It operated contract freight services, offering charters and scheduled flights, as well as wet lease services. It operated services for the U.S. military and the United States Postal Service, as well as ad hoc charter flights. Its crew base was at John F. Kennedy International Airport, New York.

Evergreen also maintained a large aircraft maintenance and storage facility at the Pinal Air Park in Marana, Arizona that the company acquired from the CIA‘s Air America fleet.

The airline was established by Delford Smith (founder and owner) and began operations in 1960 as Evergreen Helicopters. It acquired the operating certificate of Johnson Flying Service and merged it with Intermountain Airlines from Pacific Corporation (a CIA front company) in 1975 to form Evergreen International Airlines. The holding company, Evergreen International Aviation, formed in 1979, wholly owns the airline.

On December 31, 2013, Evergreen International Airlines filled a Chapter 7 petition in federal bankruptcy court in Delaware. The bankruptcy filing lists seven entities as submitting the Chapter 7 petition: Evergreen Aviation Ground Logistics Enterprise, Evergreen Defense and Security Services, Evergreen International Airlines, Evergreen International Aviation, Evergreen Systems Logistics, Evergreen Trade, and Supertanker Services.[10]

According to Daniel Hopsicker:

The CIA’s “former” airbase at Marana, Arizona holds the key to the mystery of how the Agency hides, or “sheep-dips,” its planes. When the base was privatized, top CIA aviation officers, including the Agency’s legendary George Doole, went to work there for Evergreen International.

The CIA’s far-flung aviation operations, which span the globe, continue to be run from there. Thousands of airplanes sit parked, waiting to be reactivated. Inside the largest hanger hangs a plaque dedicated to George Doole, who for decades was in charge of CIA’s aviation activities worldwide.

Doole created and ran the worlds’ largest airline. They called it “Spook Air.” 

He was so adept at the sleight of hand necessary to shuffle the ‘paper’ ownership of the CIA’s fleet of planes back and forth between a bewildering number of proprietary airlines that the true size of the CIA’s airline—then and now—will never be known.

When Richard Nixon appointed Richard Helms CIA Director in the early 70’s, Helms tasked a staffer with adding up and accounting for all the planes in Doole’s domain. After three months on the project the staffer gave up in exasperation. 

The problem, he explained to Helms, was the speed and alacrity with which Doole changed airplane markings and tail numbers, and leased planes back and forth between various shell corporations.

Then came Watergate. In the aftermath of revelations about the CIA’s assassination and mind control programs, the Agency was under strong pressure to sell off the front companies used to hide their fleet of planes.

The subsequent privatization of government assets into private hands had the same result as it did in Russia 15 years later. The aviation wing of crony capitalism was born.

Soon retired Generals, like Richard Secord, became instant corporate CEO’s, running aircraft charter and aviation companies that continued doing the CIA’s bidding. 

Today the tradition continues, with companies like World Jet and Donna Blue Aircraft replacing more familiar names like Air America, Southern Air, and Evergreen Airlines.

According to FAA registration records, this is where the Gulfstream’s sister airplane,  SkyWay’s DC-9 (N900SA)— busted with 5.5 tons of cocaine in the Yucatan—came from. The plane was brought out of mothballs in 2002 to be put to work in the war on terror.

It  was also from here, in the late 80’s—while SkyWay Chairman Glenn Kovar still worked for the U.S. Forest Service—that that innocuous Federal Agency—the home of Smokey the Bear!— was “gifted” with dozens of  “surplus” military cargo airplanes. 

The planes, to be used to fight fires in U.S. national parks,  began turning up  being used as cargo workhorses for Mexican and South American drug cartels, including, memorably, one C-130 that was found sitting on a runway at Mexico City’s international airport carrying a stunning billion dollars worth of cocaine.

And this was in the late 1980’s, when a billion dollars worth of cocaine was still worth…well, a billion dollars

According to Wayne Madsen:

Those who murdered 9/11 author and former Iran-contra CIA contract pilot Phillip Marshall in the last days of January this year, were hoping to block Marshall’s investigation into the role that the Pinal Air Park / Marana Airfield outside of Tucson, Arizona played in the 9/11 attack. It is noteworthy that Pinal is the home to America’s “boneyard” of retired civilian aircraft, including Boeing passenger aircraft. Nearby Davis- Monthan Air Force Base is the home to the boneyard of retired military aircraft. In addition, the CIA and US Special Forces maintain operations at Pinal, the CIA through its contractor, Evergreen International.

The senior U.S. Judge for the Middle District of Alabama, Mark Fuller, the judge who sent former Alabama Democratic Governor Don Siegelman to prison on trumped up charges, is a major player in the 9/11 operation owing to his former ownership of Doss Aviation, the U.S. Air Force contractor that trained Egyptian Air Force Lt. Col. Mohammed Atta at Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama and who also had contracts to train Saudi pilots.

¶2  [Wallace J. ‘Wally’] Hilliard formed Florida Air Holdings, Inc., in March 2001, envisioning it as primarily a commuter airline operating in Florida. To operate as a commuter airline, the company needed a “Part 121” operating certificate from the United States Department of Transportation. To obtain the Part 121 certificate, Florida Air purchased the bankrupt Sunrise Airlines, Inc., to operate as a Florida Air subsidiary. Hilliard intended to obtain Florida Air’s Part 121 certificate by renewing Sunrise’s suspended certificate.

09/11/01 : According to Law360.com: Paper mill seeks void of $17M IRS Deficiency

One such credit line came shortly before 2000, when VHC issued a line of credit to Ron’s cotton fiber plant for the installation of a key machine. It did so at the request of United Arab Emirates Investment Ltd., [UAEI] which had made an offer on the plant that would have far exceeded the amount of the company’s debt for the machine. However, UAEI withdrew from the deal at the last minute after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, saying the status of a Middle Eastern company in the U.S. at the time was too risky.

Around the same time, Enron, one of the debtor’s key backers, filed for bankruptcy.

“With the collapse of both deals, lenders began contacting petitioner about accelerating repayment of the loans to the debtor’s companies and calling in the guarantees of petitioner,” VHC said. VHC gave the company even more money following the two collapses to help the debtor get back on its feet, according to the petition.

[Atty. Carl Artman] was listed in 2002 as general counsel and vice president of business development at CorAccess Systems LLC in Denver[, COLORADO]. [Pres. George W.] Bush named Artman to the President’s Board of Advisors on Tribal Colleges and Universities in 2002.

According to Daniel Hopsicker:

In the seven years since 9/11 Wally Hilliard has remained embroiled in controversy.

For example, in Jerry Falwell’s Lynchburg, VA in 2002 a previously-unknown company housed inside Hilliard’s Huffman Aviation in Venice managed to win a large government contract at Lynchburg’s Airport, under circumstances that left aviation observers there feeling queasy.  

Several years earlier Hilliard had “loaned” Jerry Falwell $1 million to bailout his failing religious enterprise, a loan the televangelist never repaid.

When it won the big contract, Britannia had two employees and a bank balance of $500. Their main competitor had $45 million. In cash.

The OBC voted to rescind OBC’s 03/29/00 action that removed Oneida Nation of Wisconsin enrollment as a requirement for the Oneida Law Office Chief Counsel position.

The Oneida Law Office Chief Counsel at that time was Rory Dilweg, son of then Brown Co. Judge Vivi Dilweg.


02/08/02 : According to the May 6, 2008 Court of Appeals of Wisconsin Published Decision, Case No. 08WIAPP85Herbert J. Cuene, Jr.  v.  Wallace J. Hilliard

¶3  The [U.S.] Department of Transportation tentatively approved Sunrise [Airline]’s Part 121 renewal on February 8, 2002, and issued an order to show cause. The renewal would be finalized unless, within fourteen days of the order, someone came forward with cause for the Department to delay or deny approval.

¶4  [Wally] Hilliard also owned a company called Plane 1 Leasing Co., Inc., which owned and leased planes to other airlines. The Federal Aviation Administration had pending sanctions against Plane 1 for allegedly flying without proper authorization and informed the Department of the pending sanctions in response to the show cause order. On February 13, 2002, the Department declined to finalize Sunrise’s Part 121 certificate and requested an explanation from Hilliard about the FAA’s pending sanctions.

[Footnote: Hilliard initially disputed the allegations, asserting the plane lessees had the appropriate certificates, but later stipulated to $285,000 in sanctions after the United States attorney filed suit in April 2004.]

¶5  Simultaneously, M&I Bank underwrote a $3.64 million loan to Florida Air for six airplanes intended to be the Florida Air fleet. M&I had liens on the planes and a personal guarantee from Hilliard securing the loan. Plane 1 and Huffman Aviation – another of Hilliard’s companies – also had loans from M&I totaling $4 million.

¶6  No payments were made on the principal of Florida Air’s loan and, by December 2001, the loan was in default. An M&I representative informed Hilliard that the bank intended to terminate its relationship with him and his companies. By March 2002, all three companies were in default; Florida Air still owed M&I $3.64 million.

Fmr. Sec. of Defense  Frank Carlucci III

2004 : According to the April 24, 2012 Complaint for Violations of the Federal Securities Law, Virginia Securities Law, and Virginia Common Law, Jury Trial Demanded; U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Alexandria Division, Case No. 1:12CV451, Frank C. Carlucci III  v.  Michael S. Han & Envion Inc., regarding a ‘Plastics-to-Oil’ fraud scheme eerily similar to the fraud schemes of Abdul Latif Mahjoob / American Combustion Technologies Inc. / ACTI; Ron Van Den Heuvel / Green Box NA / Reclamation Technology Systems LLC / E.A.R.T.H.; Alliance GC / Alliance Construction & Design / P2O Technologies; Arland Clean Fuels / ACF Leasing / ACF Services / Generation Clean Fuels / Louis Stern / Eric Decator, et al.; and Oneida Seven Generations Corp. / OSGC & subsidiaries Oneida Energy Inc. and Green Bay Renewable Energy LLC:

9.  Envion represents itself to the public as a technology company with exclusive patent rights to a unique technology that presents an environmentally sensitive, more efficient, and cost effective option for recapturing energy by converting waste plastic into usable oil.

10.  Envion publically represents on its website that the centerpiece of the technology, and the foundation for its entire company, is a “proprietary system, the Envion Oil Generator™, which transforms public waste back to its original form – crude oil.”

11.  Envion further describes the Envion Oil Gnerator on its website as a “proprietary breakthrough technology developed and perfected over the last 14 years” and the “first plast waste to oil conversion platform of its kind.”

Soliciting Investment Funds

12.  In approximately 2003, Mr. Carlucci and Mr. Han met at the Regency Sport & Health Club where they both regularly play tennis.

13.  In early 2004, Mr. Han approaced Mr. Carlucci in an attempt to solicit funds for his company, Envion. At the time, Mr. Han described Envion to Mr. Carlucci as a “technology company” that would “bring technology [he] owned to the United States that his uncle had developed in Korea. Mr. Han described that technology as “a patented process involving the conversion of plastic to oil.”

13.  Through a series of telephone calls, face-to-face meetings at Mr. Carlucci’s residence and at the Regency Sport and Health Club in early 2004, which were often arranged via telephone calls and/or emails from Mr. Han from his Washington, D.C. office to Mr. Carlucci in Virginia, Mr. Han made numerous material misrepresentations and omissions of material fact in his disclosures to Mr. Carlucci in connection with his attempt to induce Mr. Carlucci to invest in Envion. Mr. Han specifically represented to Mr. Carlucci during these meetings that:

a.  He (Mr. Han and Envion) had the exclusive patent for the Envion Oil Generators, which formed the foundation for Envion’s business and success;

b.  He (Mr. Han) had lined up the investment banking house, Allen & Company, to raise funds for Envion and that Allen & Company would be an equity investor in the company;

c.  He (Mr. Han) had communicated with numerous other investors who were interested in Envion, including Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, Dow Chemical, Morgan Stanley, and Goldman Sachs;

d.  Along with Mr. Han, Envion was run by a number of “seasoned and highly regarded executives in the energy, technology, and finance industries, as well as the public sector”;

e.  He (Mr. Han) was negotiating a lucrative arrangement with Waste Management Company pursuant to which Waste Management would purchase rights to use the technology;

f.  He (Mr. Han) was negotiating a lucrative arrangement with Allied Republic, another waste management firm and competitor of Waste Management;

g.  Envion had a backlog of orders for its Oil Generator product; and

h.  For each of these reasons, “Envion would be the best return Mr. Carlucci had received on any investment.”

15.  As Mr. Carlucci later came to find out, each of these representations was false and Mr. Han knew, or should have known, that they were false at the time they were made.

16.  Unaware of the falsity of Mr. Han’s statements, Mr. Carlucci relied upon Mr. Han’s misrepresentations and omissions of material fact, and was justified in doing so, in deciding to invest in Envion. Thus, on March 4, 2004, in direct and reasonable reliance on Mr. Han’s representations and omissions of material fact, Mr. Carlucci made an initial investment in Envion in the amount of $500,000, which was in the form of a Convertible Promissory Note. The 2004 Convertible Promissory Note could be converted at any time by Mr. Carlucci into common stock of Envion – equity in the company.

17.  Over the next several years, Mr. Han approached Mr. Carlucci on numerous other occasions seeking additional investment funds for Envion. On each occasion, Mr. Han painted a very rosy picture for Envion, and expressly represented that the company had many favorable business arrangements (Gazprom, among others) that would result in an enormous return on any amounts invested by Mr. Carlucci and stated that Envion had exclusive patent rights over its critical technology. In each instance, Mr. Carlucci again reasonably relied upon Mr. Han’s misrepresentations and omissions of material fact, and was justified in doing so, in deciding to invest in Envion. As Mr. Carlucci came to find out later, however, each of the representations Mr. Han made to induce his investment was false and Mr. Han knew, or should have known, they were false at the time they were made.

18.  Specifically, pusuant to a series of convertible promissory notes made by Envion in favor of Mr. Carlucci, between November 2004 and April 2010, Mr. Carlucci invested the following additional funds in Envion through convertibel notes issued on the dates indicated:

a.  November 11, 2004 – $400,000

b.  March 29, 2005 – $300,000

c.  June 3, 2005 – $175,000

d.  February 21, 2006 – $350,000

e.  June 29, 2006 – $250,000

f.  August 24, 2006 – $250,000

g.  April 1, 2007 – $168,000

h.  October 15, 2007 – $300,000

i.  August 1, 2008 – $900,000

j.  May 27, 2009 – $1,500,000

k.  July 29, 2009 – $2,000,000

l.  October 21, 2009 – $3,000,000

m.  December 27, 2009 – $200,000

n.  April 21, 2010 – $1,800,000

19.  Each of the investments identified above was evidenced by a convertible promissory note that accrued interest in the range of 8%–1o% annually and could be converted at any time by Mr. Carlucci into common stock of Envion – equity in the company

[More below at 03/2010 regarding Carlucci’s addional $20,000,000 investment in Envion, Inc.’s ‘Plastics-t0-Oil’ trash incinerator fraud scheme]

2007 : According to Law360.com‘Paper mill seeks void of $17M IRS Deficiency’

In 2007, however, it appeared that [Ron Van Den Heuvel’s] debt [to his family’s company VHC, Inc.] would be repaid with an offer on the mill from Goldman Sachs-backed ST Paper, which offered to purchase Ron’s assets. Believing that the deal would bear fruit, VHC waived its bad debt deduction for its 2006 returns. However, the company recanted when it learned that under a new arrangement, it would only receive promissory notes rather than cash payments for the loans.

STATEMENT OF UNDISPUTED FACTS

Allegations

21. Hilliard and Rudy Dekkers (“Dekkers“) formed Florida Air Holdings, LLC on December 7, 2000.

22.  Florida Air Holdings, Inc. (“FAH“) was formed in March 2001, and thereafter acquired the assets of Florida Air Holdings, LLC.

23.  Shortly after forming FAH, Hilliard acquired all the shares of Sunrise [Airlines] for $750,000.00 by purchasing suc shares from the Sunrise Liquidation Trust. The only asset that Hilliard acquired from Sunrise was a Federal Aviation Regulation (“FAR“) Part 121 Communter Air Carrier Operating Certificate (“Certificate”) that had been suspended due to inactivity due to Sunrise’s bankruptcy. If the U.S. Department of Transporation (“DOT“) approved the certificate, FAH would be able to operate commuter airlines and establish routes between Florida cities.

24.  FAH operated Sunrise as a subsidiary and Sunrise never received approval to operate a commuter airline.

25.  Sunrise initiated the approval process Certificate on January 15, 2001

26.  After delays and multiple supplemental filings, the DOT finally issued an “Order to Show Cause” on February 8, 2002 tentatively approving the Certificate unless cause was shown indicting that the application should not be approved.

27.  Following the Order to Show Cause, the Federal Aviation Administration (“FAA”) notified the DOT that there were pending regulatory sanctions against one of Hilliard’s companies, Plane 1. The “Order Vacating Show Cause Order” indicates an explanation was requested concerning the resolution of the pending regulatory sanctions against Plane 1 on February 13, 2002.

28.  An explanation of Plane 1’s civil penalites was received by the DOT more than two months later, on May 30, 2002.

29. The DOT withdrew its tentaive approval of the Part 121 Certificate reinstatement on July 10, 2002 and cited the unresolved FAA allegations against Plane 1 as a significant contributing factor.

30.  Communications from Hilliard to the Plaintiffs indicated that the Plaintiffs were purchasing an airline that would begin scheduled commuter service soon.

31.  The “Executive Summary” material on page 1 indicated that “Sunrise Airlines (under FAA Part 121 Rules) will provide scheduled passenger service in key, underserved Florida marketsscheduledto begin this summer.”

32.  Hilliard failed to disclose the Plane 1 FAA regulatory allegations and the violations committed by Plane 1 to the Plaintiffs when they invested.

33.  The development of a commuter airline with a scheduled service was essential to the business plan of FAH and was forecasted as occurring in September of 2001.

34.  Hilliard owned 100% of Plane 1.

35.  The FAA issued a Notice of Proposed Civil Penalities to Hiliard’s company, Plane 1, in the amount of $90,000.00 on May 9, 2001.

36.  According to Hilliard, he originally self-reported these potential violations to the FAA. …

37.  Hilliard was therefore aware of the violations prior to the FAA issuing the Notice of Proposed Civil Penalties to Plane 1.

38.  The DOT only became aware of the proposed civil penalties against Plane 1 five days following the issuance of the Show Cause Order tentatively approving the Certificte.

39.  In the Order Vacating Show Cause Order, the DOT withdrew its tentative approval of the Part 121 Certificate for Sunrise by stating that “shortly after issuance of our Show Cause Order, we received information unknown to us earlier that indicated that, in May 2001, the FAA had issued a Notice of Proposed Civil Penalty (“NPCP”) to Plane 1 alleging that Plane 1 violated the FAR by operating as an air carrier without holding the required FAA operating authority to do so. These allegations,if true are serious.”

40.  While Sunrise was attempting to gain approval from the DOT, Hilliard was actively involved in sales activities to raise money for FAH.

41.  Hilliard failed to disclose the regulatory problems with Plane 1 which could have affected the business plans for FAH to operate a commuter air carrier to the Plaintiffs.

42.  Hilliard did not resolve the FAA allegations against Plane 1 during the application process of Sunrise. The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Florida filed a lawsuit on April 5, 2004 alleging that Plane 1 was operating a charter air service without the proper authority.

43.  Hilliard executed a Stipulated Order admitting to 26 violations of FAA regulations and agreed to a fine of $285,000.00 on behalf of Plane 1. This Stipulated Order is dated March 26, 2005 and is the final outcome of the proposed sanctions issued against Plane 1 on May 9, 2001

44.  M&I Bank, Northeast, loaned FAH $3,640,000.00 to purchase six aircraft.

45.  As of March 31, 2002, M&I Bank, Northeast, had loans outstanding of approximately $2,700,000.00 to Plane 1 and $1,800,000.00 to Hoffman Aviation, Inc. [different entity than Huffman Aviation? The FAH loan was $3,640,000.00 and Hilliard executed an unlimited personal guaranty in favor of M&I Bank, Northeast for all of these loans.

46.  A December 31, 2001 letter from David Schlitz to Hilliard outlines problems with the loans, and indicated that the Bank did not want to have a continuing relationship with either Hilliard or FAH and Hilliard readily admitted that the loans were in default.

47.  On March 31, 2002, M&I Bank entered into a Forebearance Agreement with Hilliard, FAH, Dekkers, Hoffman Aviation, Inc., and Plane 1 that provided Hilliard and these companies time to obtain refinancing for these loans. The airplanes owned by FAH servied as collateral for the defaulted loans subject to the Forbearance Agreement.

48.  Hilliard did not disclose the loan defaults or forbearance agreements to prospective investors.

49.  Hilliard admitted that he would have wanted to know the relationship that a corporation had with its bank, and that this information would be important to making an investment decision, and that it would be something “important” to know if investing in a company.

50.  At the end of 2001, Sunrise had approximately $300,000 in payroll taxes outstanding for the periods ended March 31, 2001; June 30, 2001; September 30, 2001; and December 31, 2001.

51. The DOT was also concerned with payroll tax withholding failures of $12,500.00 relating to a prior position held by the Chief Financial Officer of FAH, Mike Holtzapple. ..

52.  The IRS directly contacted Hilliard concerning these payroll taxes.

53.  A letter dated June 1, 2002 was sent to prospective investors describing the transaction for the purchase of Discover Air on page 2. The acquisition was subject to a comprehensive due dilligence.

54.  Although the Executive Summary indicated that “Discover is currently generating revenue in excess of $400,000.00 per monthproviding a revenue stream to the corporation, while Sunrise complete its Department of Transporations (“DOT”) approval process for a Part 121 scheduled passenger service to begin this summer,” Discover Air incurred substantial losses throughout 2002.

55.  A lien was filed against Discover in June 2002 for failure to pay debts associated with fuel purchases.

56.  Hilliard also represented that FAH had everything necessary to begin flying except the capital.

57.  FAH’s financial projections for 2002 included income projected after attaining the Certificate.

58.  Page 30 of the Executive Summary states: “All the pieces are in place for successful launch of Sunrise Airlines.”

59.  The DOT withdrew their tentative support of the Sunrise authority to tentatively operate scheduled air service.

60.  Hilliard did not contribute to the DAG hangar … vauled at $400,000.

61.  Hilliard did not contribute $1,000,000.00 in cash.

62.  Hilliard also never owned the airplances for which he is claiming a $1.1. Million equity contribution.

63.  Hilliard contacted prospective investors via the phone and by mail.

64.  Hilliard’s material misrepresentations and omisions occurred in connection with the sale and purchase of FAH stock.

65.  The loans of FAH and Hilliard affiliated companies, Huffman Aviation and Plane 1, were in default as of December 31, 2001 and continuted to be in default through and subject to a Forbearance Agreement effective March 31, 2002.

66.  Hilliard was the guarantor on approximately $4.2 Million in loans between Plane 1 and Huffman Aviation which were also in defaut.

67.  The toal loan defaults of FAH, Huffman Aviation, and Plane 1 reached approximately $8,000,000.

68.  Hilliard executed the Forbearance Agreement with M&I Bank on March 31, 2002 and used the airplanes of FAH to secure such loans.

69.  Threrefore, Hilliard was aware of the potential violations even prior to the Notice of Proposed Civil Penatly issued by the FAA. Since the violations occurred during 1999, Hilliard was aware at all times of these potential violations before any investor invested in FAH but neglected to disclose them.

70.  On Page 5 of the Executive Summary, it is noted that 63% of the $13,000,000.00 or $8,190,000.00 was spent to turn Sunrise into a turn key airline.

71.  FAH’s oustanding payroll taxes concerned the DOT becaues they impacted the ability of the management to effectively run a financially fit airline. The DOT’s concern regarding CFO Mike Holtzapple’s prior problems regarding payroll taxes demonstrates that the ability to effectively handle the financial managements of FAH could potentially affect FAH’s business plan for the DOT approval for scheduled air service.

72.  When FAH and Discover Air merged in May of 2002, Discover Air was already in default on vendor contract. Discover Air was unable to even pay fuel bill and eventually had a lien filed against it in June of 2002. Discover Air incurred approximately $1.3 g in losses from May to December of 2002.

73.  The prospective investor letter Hilliard provided to investors claimed Hilliard contributed cash and assets valued at $4 Million.

74.  Hilliard admitted in deposition testimony that he did not contribue such assets and only supplied Sunrise Airline stock.

75.  Hilliard did not contribute assets valued at $4 Million as the prospective investor letter for that stock claimed. Hilliard did not contribute the DAG hanger valued at $400,000, $1.1 Million in airplane equity, or $1 Million in cash.

76.  At the time of the sale and purchase of FAH stock by Stephen Schonke, his net worth was under $1 million and he had not earned more than $200,000.00 in the previous two years prior to the transaction.

77.  Hilliard knew Rudi Dekkers and loaned him $900,000 for the benefit of Huffman Aviation, a company involved in training pilots.

78.  Plane 1 Leasing, Inc. was created and owned by Hilliard in order to lease planes.

08/21/07 : MONEY JUDGMENT – $4,203.63 against Chat LLC, Brown Co. Case No. 04SC5645Melotte Dist Inc.  v.  Chat LLC & Ron Van Den Heuvel


09/2007 to 11/2009 : According to the August 5, 2011 Order Granting Motion for Summary Judgment Against Mantria Corporation, Civil Action No. 09-CV-02676, Securities & Exchange Commission  v.  Mantria Corp., Wragg, Knorr & McKelvy:

This case arises from a Ponzi scheme Defendants are alleged to have perpetrated from September 2007 through November 2009 and through which Defendants are alleged to have defrauded investors over $54 million. Mantria was founded and operated by Defendant Troy B. Wragg, who functioned as Mantria’s Chief Executive Officer, and Defendant Amanda E. Knorr, who functioned as Mantria’s Chief Operating Officer. Defendant Wayde M. McKelvy is the founder and managing member of Speed of Wealth, LLC, which acted as a promoter of Mantria securities. Of the $54,531,488.57 that Mantria raised, Mantria paid a total of $17,500,453.21 to investors, using investors’ own funds to pay those returns. Additionally, Mantria used millions of dollars of investor funds to build non-revenue-generating infrastructure, and to pay Wragg, Knorr, and McKelvy commissions and compensation. Based on the funds raised and the funds paid to investors, Mantria generated a profit of $37,031,035.36.

Mantria attracted potential investors to seminars held by McKelvy and Speed of Wealth throughout the country, which seminars were advertised by television, radio, Internet, print media, and e-mail. At the seminars, investors were encouraged to liquidate their traditional investments, borrow as much as possible, and invest as much as possible in Mantria’s securities offerings. After these seminars, Defendants McKelvy, Wragg, and Knorr would send attendees e-mails promoting Mantria’s securities and provide written securities offerings in the form of private placement memoranda. Knorr also promoted Mantria securities on an Internet radio broadcast. Mantria’s securities purported to provide an opportunity to invest in Mantria’s various business ventures, including real estate, a financial lending company (that used investor funds to provide down payments for Mantria real estate), and green energy [EternaGreen Global Corp.], in which Mantria’s efforts would be profitable and result in payments to investors. Defendants McKelvy, Wragg, and Knorr described Mantria’s securities as safe, high-yield investments with 17% to hundreds of percent returns, or even infinite returns.

Throughout the course of this scheme, Mantria [Corporation], [Troy] Wragg, [Amanda] Knorr, and [Wayde]McKelvy made material misrepresentations in connection with offers and sales of Mantria’s securities, including that: (1) Mantria generated millions of dollars in annual profits when, in fact, Mantria generated no profits; (2) Mantria is the world’s largest manufacturer and distributor of biochar and that Mantria’s biochar operations were very profitable when, in fact, Mantria never sold any biochar and never made any revenues from biochar; (3) Mantria built the world’s first biorefinery plant in New Mexico when, in fact, Mantria never built or operated such a facility; (4) Mantria’s biochar manufacturing facility in Tennessee is producing $6.2 million annually when, in fact, the facility never generated revenue; (5) Mantria paid investors through profitable ventures when, in fact, it paid investor returns using investors’ money; (6) Mantria was not a Ponzi scheme when, in fact, it was; and (7) McKelvy reviewed Mantria’s books when, in fact, McKelvy did not regularly look at Mantria’s books and did not know what Mantria did with its books.

In connection with the offers, sales, and purchases of Mantria’s securities, Defendants failed to disclose that McKelvy made 12.5% commissions from Mantria securities sales, which commissions totaled more than $6.2 million. Further, the securities offered and sold were not registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), and Mantria, Wragg, Knorr, and McKelvy were not affiliated with any broker dealer registered with the SEC. 

Defendants raised more than $54 million from over 100 investors by egregiously, recklessly, knowingly, and shamelessly perpetrating a fraudulent scheme whereby they used misrepresentations, omissions, and blatant lies to induce unsuspecting and unwitting victim investors to liquidate the equity in their homes and take out bank loans to invest in Defendants’ scheme, which was nothing more than smoke and mirrors. ….

Here’s Mantria Corporation creep Troy Wragg receiving recognition from Bill & Hillary Clinton, and meeting with foreign officials to promote EternaGreen Global & Mantria Corp.:

Cristina Servilla Delgado Danforth

10/06/07 : October 6, 2007 GTC Special Meeting Minutes / Transcript re: FY2008 Budget

Present: Chair Gerald Danforth; Vice Chair Kathy Hughes; Treasurer Mercie Danforth; Secretary Patty Hoeft; Council members Ed Delgado; Paul Ninham; Melinda J. Danforth; Vince Dela Rosa; Trish King

[Fmr. OBC Chair & Treasurer] Cristina Danforth [who was not on the OBC at this time]:  I would like a written response to her questions within one week. It’s a request, it’s informal, it’s verbal. The presentation talked of total unrestricted investment amounts, general reserve amounts, operational amounts and closed project amounts. My question is, what has been the growth of our unrestricted investments and our other investments over the last three years? What is the actual dollar growth of those investments and what is the percentage of growth for those investment during the last three years? I’m concerned if we’re making money off our investments or not. These are unrestricted, so I know they get invested in a certain way when you consider liquidity and things like that.

My other question is, is there another per capita plan being formulated by management, Business Committee or sub-committee? I know we have a current one but that’s going to run out soon and I was just hoping we could be a little more pro-active about per capita.

My other questions are about some of the tribe’s investment over the years. I know I’ve been a part of those investments, overseeing them, etc. But I do have some questions about them today.

My first question is about Airidigm investments. That was a $40M investment. What has been the tribe’s return on investment for Airidigm? It’s actually $40M+, there have been other things besides money put into that investment.

My other question is on [OneidaSeven Generations Corporation. What has been the tribal contribution annually and over the last five years, Seven Generations contribution to the tribe? Every time I look at Seven Generations annual, semi-annual or quarterly reports, they have been vague. I’ve asked specifie questions on the reports and haven’t gotten a lot of feedback over the years. Now, I’m on the other side of the fence and am asking those questions again.

My last question is relative to Seven Generations and its Nature’s Way investment. Oneida Tribe designated $4M to Nature’s Way through Seven Generations. $2M was borrowed, $2M was given in cash through the Venture Fund. What has been the tribe’s return on investment through the Nature’s Way Corporation? Again, I don’t see those numbers reflected in any of the Seven Generation Corporation reports. A quick summary on those numbers; $40M + $44M between Airidigm and Nature’s Way have been invested over the years. That’s half of the per capita distribution being requested today by the $5,000 to $10,000. Thank you.

[Then OBC Treas.] Mercie Danforth:  One of the questions asked is the amount of funds in the unrestrictive and restricted reserve accounts. The majority of these questions, I don’t have at hand to answer these questions today. The unrestricted we did have what we call the general reserve. That’s the main one we do have in calculations of what we’d lose in income from that general reserve, which would be about $6.5 million per year that we’d lose, wouldn’t be able to gain interest on in that account. Those are just according to what were investing and how were investing those accounts. That’s just one area within that. We will prepare information and get it out to membership.

The other areas were asked for all the investments: Airadigm [Communications], [Oneida] Seven Generations [Corp.], General Fund, Nature’s Way [Tissue Corp.]. We are gathering and preparing that information to get out to the membership of what those investments were, what the total funds that were invested and how much of a return we got on those investments. We are gathering that information today. Some of those are older business investments, so we are gathering that information.

Joyce [Hoes]:  Why doesn’t the Business Committee want GTC to get the per capita? This would add to the comfort of lives. This money can help people now. What about the multi-million dollar golf course? Why can’t we have some money instead of a multi-million golf course and all the frivolous spending? We gave all this big money to Art Skenandore who’s living in Thornberry Creek, where are we living? Why is the upper echelon living in luxury and we’re barely getting by? We have single parents struggling. Why don’t you want the people to have the money?

ACTIONS:

Motion by Dawn Moon Kopetsky to amend the main motion that there are no increases of wages to boards, commissions or committees. And to have the Business Committee bring back to the GTC by the end of January 2008 a complete itemized list of the entire assets and debits of the entire tribe’s affairs every single income and every single debit, seconded by Nancy Skenandore.
Motion carried.

Motion by Tina Danforth to amend the main motion to adopt the resolution for the FY08 budget found on page 27-28 of the mail out, seconded by Kathy Hughes.
Motion carried.

2008 : According to the FY2012 & FY 2017 General Tribal Council Annual Meeting Packets OSGC LOST $4 MILLION w/ Ron Van Den Heuvel & Artley Skenandore’s Nature’s Way Tissue Corp. scheme:

In Fiscal Year 2008, a $4,000,000 loss was written off due to the closing of Nature’s Way [Tissue Corp.]. Oneida Seven Generations is currently in litigation against Nature’s Way principals of the corporation. Seven Generations has since regained control of the property and are currently leasing the facility to Schneider International.

  

[NOTE: Nature’s Way Tissue Corporation’s principals are Ron Van Den Heuvel, Artley Skenandore Jr., and Steven Peters.]


Kelly Lea Yessman / Kelly Van Den Heuvel

01/17/08 : According to the September 20, 2016 Superseding Indictment, Docket No. 16-CR-064, USA  v.  Ron & Kelly Van Den Heuvel and Paul J. Piikkila

a. During the period of the scheme, defendant [Paul] Piikkila was employed as a loan officer for Horicon Bank…working at the Appleton, Wisconsin branch. He had authority to make loans up to $250,000 limit. Loans he proposed to make above that limit needed to be approved by the bank’s Business Lenders Committee.

b. …Ron Van Den Heuvel represented himself to be a businessman in the area of Green Bay, Wisconsin. He operated and controlled at least seven purported business entities that he used interchangeably.

c. …Kelly Van Den Heuvel as the wife of Ronald Van Den Heuvel and was also the owner and operator of KYHKJG, a limited liability corporation.

d. In December of 2007, or early January of 2008, Ronald Van Den Heuvel approached Piikkila and asked him to issue loans from the bank to Ronald Van Den Heuvel or his business entities.

e. On or about January 17, 2008, [Paul] Piikkila authorized a loan of $250,000 from [Horicon Bank] to RVDH, Inc., one of Ronald Van Den Heuvel’s business entities. Ronald Van Den Heuvel signed the business note for RVDH, Inc. According to the note, the loan was to be repaid at 7.25% interest by January 15, 2009. It was never repaid and, after collection efforts, the bank charged off a loss of $237,109.

The evidence to prove this charge comes from several sources. All involved personnel from the Horicon Bank and all individuals serving as straw borrowers to obtain loans have been interviewed. Records have been obtained from the Horicon Bank and other banks which made loans for the benefit of Ron Van Den Heuvel, which loans from Horicon were used to repay. To avoid confusion between the two Van Den Heuvels, this offer of proof will refer to them as Ron and Kelly, respectively.

During the period of the scheme, Paul Piikkila was employed as a loan officer for Horicon Bank … working at the Appleton, Wisconsin branch. He had authority to make loans up to a $250,000 limit. Any loans he proposed above that limit needed to be approved by the bank’s Business Lenders Committee.

Ron Van Den Heuvel … The New Lost Dauphin … aka The Deadbeat of De Pere

 Ron is a member of a wealthy and prominent family in Green Bay. During the scheme, he represented himself to be a businessman in the Green Bay area. He operated and controlled at least seven business entities that he used interchangeably.

During the period of the scheme, Kelly Van Den Heuvel was the wife of Ron and was also the owner and operator of KYHKJG, LLC. She is still married to Ron.

In late 2007 or early 2008, Ron approached Piikkila about issuing loans from the bank to Ron or his business entities. All of the witnesses who know Ron characterize him as a charismatic individual who seems to have the ability to get other people to do what he wants. He often convincingly describes his grand plans for major businesses which will make all participants millionaires

On or about January 17, 2008 Piikkila authorized a loan of $250,000 from the bank to RVDH, Inc., one of Ron’s business entities. Ron signed the business note for RVDH, Inc. …

As a guarantor for the January, 2008 loan of $250,000 to RVDH, Ron submitted a financial statement to Piikkila. That financial statement included assets of more than $115,000,000, a net worth of more than $94,000,000, and an annual income of $2,320,306. The evidence in this case is full of instances in which Ron failed to pay various debts for which he is responsible. That would indicate that this financial statement is dramatically false. If it is true, Ron was failing to repay amounts he could easily pay just from money he claimed to have in various cash accounts.

Atty. Donsia Strong-Hill

02/08/08 : WisLawJournal: Who’s Doing What?

The law firm of Godfrey & Kahn, S.C. announced that Donsia Strong Hill has joined the firm as a shareholder with the Corporate Practice Group.

She practices out of the firm’s Milwaukee and Green Bay offices, and provides bond and underwriter’s counsel services to municipalities, housing authorities, investment banking houses, developers and redevelopment authorities. She also assists in the financial sector of Indian Nations work. She received her law degree from John Marshall Law School.

Donsia Strong-Hill is married to Fmr. OBC Chair Rick Hill, whose term as OBC Chair ran from August 2008 – August 2011.


03/20/08 : According to July 1, 2016 Paul Piikkila Plea Agreement in U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Wisconsin Case No. 16-CR-64United States of America  v.  Paul J. Piikkila

About two months later, on or about March 20, 2008 Piikkila proposed to the loan committee that the bank loan $7,100,000 to Source of Solutions, LLC, another of Ron’s business entities. Members of the loan committee, who were Piikkila’s superiors at the bank, did due diligence to look into Ron’s creditworthiness. They found that he had a number of judgments against him and that bankers at other banks which Ron had done business advised Horicon Bank against making any loans to Ron. As a result, the loan committee would not approve this loan. Piikkila tried to restructure it a couple of times but that did not change the committee’s decison. Piikkila’s superiors at the bank instructed him that the band did not wish to make any loans to Ron or his businesses so Piikkila should not.

That led Piikkila to authorize a series of loans to other people for Ron’s benefit or the benefit of his companies. The paperwork on these loans was put together in a way that prevented the bank from realizing that Piikkila was authorizing these loans in violation of the instructions not to loan money to Ron or his businesses. It was also in violation of Piikkila’s loan limits. His first loan was to on of Ron’s entities, RVDH, in January of 2008 already reached Piikkila’s limit to loan to any one individual. The subsequent loans for the benefit of Ron through various straw borrowers drastically exceeded that limit.

05/06/08 : May 6, 2008 Court of Appeals of Wisconsin Published Decision, Case No. 08WIAPP85Herbert J. Cuene, Jr.  v.  Wallace J. Hilliard

¶29  Hilliard’s omission of his problems with the FAA, Plane 1, and Sunrise’s Part 121 approval made his representation of imminence misleading. We think it evident that a regulatory agency’s reluctance, delay, or postponement of previously anticipated, mandatory approval would be important to a prospective buyer’s business decision. Indeed, the court observed that Sunrise “could not get off the ground” without Part 121 approval. While Hilliard points out that the airline was still flying charter service under a valid Part 135 certificate, the presentation to investors was that Sunrise would be a commuter, not charter, airline. Information about a possible failure to obtain commuter authorization would be necessary for an investor to determine whether, should the approval be withheld, investment in a charter-only airline would nevertheless be prudent.

¶30  Hilliard’s omission about his banking troubles is even more clearly material. “Surely, the materiality of information relating to financial condition, solvency and profitability is not subject to serious challenge.”A prospective purchaser would undoubtedly be interested to know the company in which he might invest defaulted not once but twice on multimillion-dollar loans, requiring a cash bailout from the founder, and was in forbearance only long enough to find a new lender, as the original lender no longer wished to have the company’s business.

¶31  The court properly concluded the omitted factors were material and disclosure was necessary under WIS. STAT. § 551.41(2). Accordingly, the court properly concluded Hilliard was liable to Cuene under WIS. STAT. § 551.59(1)(a).

By the Court. – Judgment affirmed.


05/07/08 : Non-Tribal member OSGC CEO John Kroner was terminated & sued OSGC in WI Supreme Court Case 2010AP2533, Kroner v. OSGC

The SEC has also presented considerable evidence that Mantria, through Wragg, Knorr, and McKelvy, made material misrepresentations and omissions concerning the probable returns on investment and the risks inherent in the securities offerings, all in an effort to foster the above-described fraudulent scheme to the detriment of Mantria’s investors who relied on such information when making their investment decisions. Additionally, the SEC has presented evidence that Mantria, through its officers (Wragg and Knorr), had the requisite scienter, whether by way of an intent to deceive, manipulate or defraud, or by engaging in conduct that was an extreme departure from the standards of ordinary care, such that it misled buyers, and the danger of misleading buyers was so obvious that Mantria, through its officers, must have been aware of it. For example, not only did Defendant Mantria, through the other Defendants, entice victim investors to purchase unregistered securities with illusory promises of improbably high rates of return, Mantria, through its agent’s, Defendant McKelvy’s, presentation at various Mantria investment seminars, encouraged potential investors to liquidate their traditional investments, including the equity in their homes, and to borrow as much money as possible to fund their investments with Mantria. (See, e.g., Transcript of May 7, 2008 Speed of Wealth Seminar, Doc. # 159-13 at 70-86; Transcript of May 21, 2009 Speed of Wealth Seminar, Doc. # 159-14 at 62-64.)

Wallace J. ‘Wally’ Hilliard – read more at the Hilliard-Weyers Branch of the Brown County Public Library

05/28/08 : According to Daniel Hopsicker:

The owner of the flight school in Venice FL where the two hijackers who crashed airliners into the World Trade Center took flight lessons, was arrested last May after assaulting his 17-yr old step-daughter outside a sports bar in Naples, Florida.

78-year old Wallace J. Hilliard of Naples FL was charged with misdemeanor battery on May 28 2008, according to Collier County, FL arrest records.

“The victim was sitting on  the sidewalk crying,” stated Naples Police officer Melvin Payne, first to arrive at the scene.

Hilliard stopped his car behind the girl as she walked down a street outside the “Sports Clip” bar in Naples, the police report states, and became physically abusive.

He began pushing her, the step-daughter reported. She stated she asked him, “Are you going to push me again like when I was a little kid?”

‘That’s when Hilliard smacked her in the face, stated the police report.

Hilliard and the girl (we’ll protect her name) had been job-hunting.

“He stopped his car behind her as she was walking,” an eyewitness told police. “Then he walked up behind her and hit her twice in the back of the head.”

The witness told Hilliard to stop hitting the girl.

Hilliard’s reply was, “Do you really want to get involved in my personal life?”

“I do if you’re going to hit girls,” said the good Samaritan.  Then he called the cops.

The daughter involved in the altercation with Hilliard has since relocated to Utah.

In the wake of Hilliard’s arrest several Naples residents who socialize with Hilliard contacted us to express outrage about his behavior.

“In public, and at church, they are the epitome of a good family,” wrote one disapproving neighbor. “Behind closed doors, not so much.”

From their comments it was possible to piece together an account of the turbulent private life of the 78-year old Hilliard.

His wife, Patricia, is at 46 thirty-two years his junior. She has five children from a previous marriage. After the two wed, Hilliard adopted her children. He also adopted his new bride’s Mormon faith

Several sources told us that Hilliard moved back to Naples from Apopka, FL last year to file for divorce. Wife Patricia and children soon followed, and the two reconciled.    

“Mrs. Hilliard has made it known,” sniffed one local matron who sees her socially. “She is waiting for Hilliard to die so that she can keep his money.”

Making this sordid tale of more than puerile interest: Hilliard played an as-yet undetermined role in the curious choice of Mohamed Atta and his terrorist compatriots to attend a flight school in a sleepy retirement community, Venice, Florida, whose attraction for the hijackers remains an enduring mystery.

After leaving Venice in December of 2000, Mohamed Atta and bodyguard Marwan Al-Shehhi returned there on three separate occasions during the six weeks of their lives, according to Brad Warrick, who rented the duo three separate cars from his car rental agency in Fort Lauderdale.

No one knows why.

Stephen Prentiss Payne (born May 8, 1964) is an American lobbyist from Houston, Texas. He has also served as a governmental, energy, international affairs, and international business development consultant, corporate and political adviser, foreign diplomat, businessman, fundraiser, and former advisor (June 2007 to July 2008) to two of the United States Department of Homeland Security’s Advisory Committees—the Secure Borders and Open Doors Advisory Committee (SBODAC) and the Essential Technology Task Force (ETTF), in connection with which he held a U.S. security clearance.

In July 2008 he attracted international attention after being secretly videotaped discussing a $750,000 lobbying contract offering access to senior U.S. officials and suggesting a $250,000 donation to the future presidential library of U.S. president George W. Bush.

In 2004, President Freiberga awarded Payne Latvia’s highest state honor, the Order of the Three Stars, for his work in helping Latvia become a NATO member. For the 2006 NATO Summit in Riga, Latvia, Payne was appointed by NATO to lead a think tank conference panel discussion on energy security and chair a NATO Future Leaders Forum bringing together up-and-coming leaders from 35 NATO member and partner countries.

Payne worked as a lobbyist for Pakistan to deliver a multibillion-dollar U.S. aid package and to remove U.S. economic and military sanctions against Pakistan that had been in place for several years. Payne also helped Pakistan secure Major non-NATO ally status, which Pakistan received in 2004. Payne also helped to secure F-16s, C-130s and military helicopters for Pakistan.[20]

In April 2006, Payne helped arrange an official meeting between the Azerbaijani president Ilham Aliyev and U.S. president George W. Bush in April 2006, something the Azerbaijani president had been attempting for three years.

He also assisted in having the Uzbek opposition politician Muhammad Salih’s name removed from Interpol’s arrest warrant list and from the U.S.’s terrorist watchlist.

Payne also assisted Turkmenistan in assembling a consortium of nations and international firms to build a natural gas pipeline from Turkmenistan to Pakistan. Payne coordinated a trilateral summit between the Presidents of Turkmenistan, Afghanistan and Pakistan that produced a memorandum of understanding regarding the Turkmen/Afghan natural gas pipeline, restoring the project’s viability after years of dormancy at the hands of the Taliban.

He has also lobbied on behalf of the governments of Turkmenistan and the United Arab Emirates, and performed consulting in Iraq, which he has visited twice. He has also served on the board of the National Defense University Foundation.

The lobbyist Randy Scheunemann has collaborated with Payne’s firms on international matters since 2002, and Payne has also partnered in his various business ventures with Frank Carlucci, Michael S. Han, Ying Wang, and W. Dieter Zander.

In 2010, leading a public relations team, Payne assisted Alexi Ogando, now a starting pitcher for the Texas Rangers (baseball), in obtaining his U.S. visa. Ogando had been permanently banned from the U.S. in 2005 because of his involvement in a human trafficking ring.

In April 2011, Payne co-led a private, non-official U.S. diplomacy delegation to Libya, which included former U.S Congressman Curt Weldon, just after the February 17th uprising. Theirs was the first delegation visiting Tripoli to publicly call for Muammar Gaddafi to step down. According to a press release from Curt Weldon, their delegation was also working toward the release of Libyan rape victim, Iman al-Obeidi, and four captive journalists, including U.S. journalists Clare Gillis and James Foley.

Bush White House activities
During the 1988 presidential campaign, Payne served as the travel aide to George W. Bush.

Payne served The White House as a “senior presidential advance representative” to George W. Bush, traveling with him as a volunteer to Jordan for the Red Sea Summit in June 2003. Payne also traveled with Dick Cheney to the Middle East in 2002 and 2005, to South Korea in 2004, to Kazakhstan in 2006, and to Afghanistan for the inauguration of Hamid Karzai in December 2004. Payne was a part of a small team of Bush operatives, which included former White House Chief of Staff Andy Card, which assisted the 2000 campaign in coordinating the three presidential debates.

He has also been a Dubya Ranch Hand (2003), and was a Bush Ranger in 2004 and a Bush Pioneer in 2000 and 2004.

Other political activities
He is a member of the Republican Party and has been active in various Republican causes since the late 1980s. He was a member of the staff of Kay Bailey Hutchison from 1993 to 1996 and served as State Vice Chairman of her 2000 and 2006 re-election campaigns. In the 1996 presidential election he worked on the Dole-Kemp campaign. He assisted with the 2004 Bush-Cheney campaign, the Senate campaign of Pete Coors for Senate, the Restore America PAC, the Rudolph Giuliani Presidential Committee (on the National Security Advisory Task Force), and the Tom DeLay Congressional Committee.

According to Federal Election Commission records, since 1998 Payne has contributed more than $249,000 to Republican candidates and Republican Party committees.

Controversy
In July 2008 Payne was secretly videotaped discussing a $750,000 lobbying contract and offering access to senior U.S. officials (including Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, and Joe Biden) to the exiled Kazakhstani politician Yerzhan Dosmukhamedov (known as Eric Dos for short), and suggesting a $250,000 donation to the future George W. Bush Presidential Library.

In the conversation, which was secretly taped by The Sunday Times at a meeting in the restaurant of The Lanesborough hotel in London, Dosmukhamedov claimed that the former Kyrgyz president Askar Akayev wished to rehabilitate his image and meet with the U.S. officials. Payne has claimed that he did nothing wrong, and stated that he was there to recruit a new legitimate lobbying client and that it was Dos who first raised the issue of a donation in his initial e-mail to Payne. The Sunday Times has released only 4 minutes and 31 seconds of the hour-long meeting and Payne claims that the unreleased portion of the video would show that he was at the meeting to solicit a lobbying client and that the release of the entire tape would dispel The Sunday Times version of the video where Payne claims his comments were edited and taken out of context. Payne was asked to resign from the Homeland Security Advisory Committees directly following the July 13, 2008 publication of the article. U.S. Representative Henry Waxman, on behalf of the United States House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, wrote a letter to Payne one day later, on July 14, 2008, requesting further details and background about this incident, and asked Payne to respond to his letter within ten days. Payne responded to the committee within ten days and Congress adjourned two months later without any further action from the House Committee.

11/05/08 : November 05, 2008 Deposition of Ronald H. Van Den Heuvel by Atty. Ross Nova of Godfrey & Kahn [excerpt, pp. 13–16], Brown Co. Case No. 08CV2265, Hilliard Limited Partnership [Godfrey & Kahn]  v.  Ronald H. Van Den Heuvel & Evergreen Development, LLC

[Ron Van Den Heuvel]:  I have that agreement with every one of them. I turn these into notes because it’s better for them. But all of them approved me entering into the bank debt that said we could not pay shareholders before the bank debt was paid. So I can’t just skirt this, turn it into a note, and now pay the note because, I mean, you can’t do that. It would be against the covenants with the banks. I mean, I can’t pay equity–– I can’t pay equity before I pay the bank debt. It’s just in the bank note.

[Atty. Ross Nova of Godfrey & Kahn]:  You referred to sort of an understanding among the members of Evergreen [Development, LLC,] to renew these notes until the assets are sold. Is there anything in writing that evidenced this understanding you had with either Hilliard Limited Partnership or any other member of Evergreen Development, LLC, at any time?

[RVDH]:  The only thing that’s in writing is the same thing that’s in Tissue Products Technology and in Eco-Fibre, and that is that I had a shareholders’ approval and board of directors’ approval when they were members of Eco-Fibre and when they were members of TPTC to enter into the bank debt that is still in place. And very clearly everyone understands they cannot get any money out of any of the companies directly or indirectly until the assets are sold.

[G&K]:  Okay. That was actually a yes or no question, Mr. Van Den Heuvel, so I’m trying to make this go faster.

[RVDH]:  Okay.

[G&K]:  So I’ll ask the question one more time. You referred to an understanding that you had with the members of Evergreen Development, LLC, to renew various promissory notes until the assets of Evergreen Development were sold. Is that understanding reduced to writing?

[RVDH]:  I don’t believe so, but I’m not sure.

[G&K]:  Okay. What would you need to do to verify your understanding?

[RVDH]:  I’d have to go through five years of e-mails.

[G&K]:  Okay. I’ll just request that you do that to verify your understanding. So we understand, as you sit here today, you don’t know of any writing evidencing the understanding we’ve been referring to, and you’re going to let me know if your understanding is incorrect by reviewing e-mails so that the next time we meet, you can deny your understanding if it turns out you’re mistaken, correct?

[RVDH]:  Incorrect. The bank documents and the two resolutions from the shareholders and the board of directors definitely says I cannot buy anybody out without paying them in full.

[G&K]:  The shareholders and board of directors of what entity?

[RVDH]:  Eco-Fibre [formerly Re-Box] and TPTC [Tissue Products Technology Corp.]

[G&K]:   Okay. I’ll request copies of those documents.

[RVDH]:  Okay.

[G&K]:  Is there anything — any board of directors or members vote or writing evidencing an understanding between you and the members of Evergreen Development, LLC, to renew the promissory notes until the assets of Evergreen are sold?

[RVDH]:  Other than the fact it just keeps happening. They understand. But no, I don’t think anything’s in writing. …

[G&K]:  Is it your testimony then that you had an understanding with the Hilliard Limited Partnership that it would agree to renew the promissory note represented in Exhibit 1 until such time as the assets of Evergreen Development, LLC, were sold?

[RVDH]:  Yes.

[G&K]:  Okay. Was that ever put in writing?

[RVDH]:  I’m not sure.

[G&K]:  When was that understanding reached with Hilliard Limited Partnership?

[RVDH]:  I talked to the guys many a time. And when we turned it from stock to a note, that was the understanding. I mean, they wanted on their balance sheet a note instead of stock so that they could value it, and I agreed to do it through an arm’s length transaction with full awareness that there was no way to pay it until the assets were sold and that I would work very diligently to sell the assets and not receive a wage from either one of the companies. I agreed to it.

[G&K]:  With whom on behalf of Hilliard Limited Partnership did you reach this understanding to renew the promissory note represented by Exhibit 1?

[RVDH]:  Mostly with Dan Hilliard, but I did talk to Neal Maccoux several times on it also.

[G&K]:  And what role does Dan Hilliard play with Hilliard Limited Partnership?

[RVDH]:  I don’t know.

[G&K]:  Okay.

[Ron Van Den Heuvel]:  He works for me though.

[Atty. Ross Nova of Godfrey & Kahn]:  Okay. Do you know if Dan Hilliard‘s a member of Hilliard Limited Partnership? … [end of Exhibit excerpt]

12/01/08 : December 1, 2008 Continued Deposition of Ronald H. Van Den Heuvel by Atty. Ross Nova of Godfrey & Kahn [excerpt], Brown Co. Case No. 08CV2265, Hilliard Limited Partnership [Godfrey & Kahn]  v.  Ronald H. Van Den Heuvel & Evergreen Development, LLC 

Page 75:

[Ron Van Den Heuvel]:  My office.

[Atty. Ross Nova of Godfrey & Kahn, counsel for Hilliard LP]:  Who was present?

[RVDH]:  I wouldn’t know, but at one of these meetings Steve Peters was there. One of them I remember Andy [Hilliard] couldn’t make it because he was traveling somewhere. I don’t remember what meeting that was; but he maybe went to Africa. South Africa maybe. I shouldn’t say that, but that’s where my memory says he was at.

[G&K:]  It was South Africa.

[RVDH]: It was, okay.

[G&K:]  At any of the meetings regarding the alleged compromise and settlement referred to in 12 of your answer was anyone else present other than you, Steve Peters, Dan Hilliard, Andy Hilliard, and Neal Maccoux?

[RVDH]:  No. It would be a combination of that group.

[G&K:]  What date was this compromise and settlemtn reached?

[RVDH]:  Right after the 4th of July, I want to say, sometime in that time period.

[G&K:]  Before or after you signed the ameneded and restated promissory note?

[RVDH]:  At or around that time. I can’t remember right when it was there. I know they wanted to review the mortgage, and we had given it to him a couple of [page 75 ends]

Pages 77–78:

[Godfrey & Kahn:]  Did you discuss the compromise and settlement with Andy — Andy Hilliard’s father [Wallace Hilliard] at all?

[Ron Van Den Heuvel:]  Well, I didn’t. I said – I told him we had a tough situation going forward and financing was tough in this market; but I do believe that I used the term your boys are comfortable now that no assets will be sold underneath them without them being paid in full and/or that I’m diligently working hard and its a real project? And I showed him the off-take agreement signed by the Kraft family and Wassau Paper. They were fairly — I think everybody is very comfortable that this deal is progressing as fast as possible.

[G&K:]  Did you have a conversation with the senior Hilliard [Wally] regarding the compromise and settlement referred to in paragraph 12 of your answer?

[RVDH:]  The only thing I said to them is we came apart with a mortgage that should satisfy any issues that they had. I didn’t get into specifics. Wally and I were friends for a long time. I used to do all of his work, built all of his buildings as an architect, and did electrical work for him for years.

[G&K:]  Did the Hilliard Limited Partnership agreement sign anything in writing documenting the compromise and settlement referred to in paragraph 12 of your answer?

[RVDH:]  The only evidence I have that they did is they recorded the mortgage. So I don’t really have anything signed by them back because they always bring things for me to sign back to them and then they accepted it because they took the mortgage and filed it. So the mortgage went to them a couple times back and forth, and they wanted to talk about it and this and that. Finally, they agreed; and then shortly after they agreed they filed the mortgage.

[G&K:]  When you say they agreed, who communicated to you that the Hilliard Limited Partnership agreed to the compromise and settlement contained in paragraph 12 of the answer?

[Ron Van Den Heuvel:]  Well, Dan [Hilliard] negotiated or I shouldn’t say negotiated. Dan is the one who told me that they agreed, and basically a couple different times he said the mortgage was a good idea, and I know Dan is inside of our group working as hard as anybody to get this closed.

[Godfrey & Kahn:]  Do you know what role Dan Hilliard has withing Hilliard Limited Partnership? … [end of Exhibit excerpt]

Attorneys for Defendants
By: C. David Stellpflug


12/22/08 : December 22, 2008 Affidavit of Neal Maccoux w/ Exhibits in Support of Plaintiff’s Motion for Summary Judgment Against Defendants, Brown Co. Case No. 08CV2265, Hilliard Limited Partnership [by Godfrey & Kahn]  v.  Ron Van Den Heuvel & Evergreen Development, LLC


12/31/08 : December 31, 2008 Notice of Motion & Motion for Summary Judgment, and Brief w/ Exhibits in Support of Motion for Summary Judgment –  including the December 31, 2008 Affidavit of Atty. Ross Nova, Godfrey & Kahn, S.C., re: Brown Co. Case No. 08CV2265, Hilliard Limited Partnership [by Godfrey & Kahn]  v.  Ron Van Den Heuvel & Evergreen Development, LLC

What the Defendents allege is that at some point prior to or contemporaneously with the execution of the promissory note, the Plaintiff orally agreed to modify the promissory note to provide for repayment upon the sale of a non-party business related to the Defendants, whenever that would occur, if ever. The Plaintiff sharply disputes this implausible allegation, but it immaterial. For reasons explained in this Brief, the promissory note cannot be modified by alleged oral agreements made prior to contemporaneously with the making of the promissory note. Because of the patrol evidence rule, a failure of consideration and the Statute of Frauds, any oral modification of the promissory note would be ineffective and any evidence in support thereof is inadmissible. Because the Defendants’ oral amendment defense must fail as a matter of law, the Plaintiff is entitled to summary judgmment. …

The oral “compromise and settlemtn” alleged by Defendants is utterly unsupported by consideration. THis alleged oral modificaiton would take the Note, whose principal value is over three quarters of a million dollars with a specific due date, and modify it to a payment date contingent upon the sale of a third party company, which Defendants agree may never happen! … As the Defendants have alleged, the Plaintiff received absolutely nothing in consideration for its oral “compromise and setllement” to modify a Note that would hav paid Plaintiff an amount now worth $915,515.12 as a point in time that may never occur. …

The maker of the Note testified that the alleged “compromise and settlement” was entered into at various times between 2004 and 2008. … Assuming, arguendo, that the alleged “compromise and settlement” was entered into in 2006, the “compromise and settlement” cannot, by its terms, be completed within one year, threby making it subject to Wisconsin general Statute of Frauds … Thus, under Wisconsin law, the “compromise and settlement” is one that is significant enough that it must be in writing. The Statute of Frauds is, as its heart, an evidentiary requirement designed to prevent disputes and uncertainties about agreements between the parties.  … A Statute of Frauds is, to put it plainly, designed to forestall exactly the kind of dispute that the Defendants attempt to raise in this case.

CONCLUSION

For the foregoing reason, the Court should grant summary judgment to the Plaintiff on its breach of contract claim and enter judgment against the Defendants in the amount of $929,592.45, plus the Plaintiff’s actual attorney’s fees and costs as allowed by the Note.

NOW COME THE DEFENDANTS Evergreen Development, LLC, and Ronald Van Den Heuvel, by Stellpflug Law, S.C., and hereby amend their answer to the Complaint of the Plaintiff as follows:

1.  Defendants reallege and incorporate herein by reference Paragraphs 1 through 11, inclusive, and Paragraphs 13 and 14, inclusive, with like force and effect as if fully realleged herein.

2.  As to Paragraph 12 of its original Answer, Defendants hereby amend that paragraph under Affirmative Defense in that it is hereby affirmatively alleged that at the time Plaintiff executed the Promissory Note or sometime prior thereto, Plaintiff and Defendants entered into an agreement whereby Defendants caused an affiliate, Eco Fibre, Inc., to execute a mortgage in favor of the Plaintiff to secure payment of the Promissory Note, and, in consideration of the same, Plaintiff agreed to refrain from any legal action and to postpone the due date of the Promissory Note until Eco-Fibre, Inc., completed the sale and expansion of their facility in DePere, Wisconsin, which has not yet occurred. The mortgage was recorded July 27, 2007 as Document No. 2324129, Brown County records.

WHEREFORE, Defendants hereby deman judgment as follows:

A. For dismissal of the Complaint with prejudice;

B.  For an award of statuatory costs, disbursements and attorney fees as permitted by law;

C.  For any and further relief that the Court may deem just and equitable.

DATED this 31st day of December, 2008

01/02/09 : January 2, 2009 Letter from Stellpflug Law to Judge Bischel, Brown Co. Case No. 08CV2265, Hilliard Limited Partnership  v.  Ron Van Den Heuvel & Evergreen Development, LLC

Enclosed please find our firm’s Notice of Motion and Motion to Withdraw as Attorneys for [Evergreen Development, LLC].

3. The ground for this motion is due to the clients having failed to substantially fulfill an obligation to the law firm regarding the law firm’s services and has been given reasonable warning that the lawyer will withdraw unless the obligation is fulfilled as more fully set forth in the accompanying affidavit.

2.  I was one of the attorneys for the Defendants Evergreen Development, LLC and Ronald Van Den Heuvel, in the above-entitled matter and I make this affidavit based upon personal knowledge.

3.  Evergreen Development, LLC and Ronald Van Den Heuvel, both personally and as the managing member of the LLC, have failed to compensate the firm for its services incurred to date in representing the parties in this matter though they agreed they would provide such compensation.

4.  The firm has made repeated requests of the LLC and Mr. Van Den Heuvel to pay the outstanding arrearages but to day, no payments have been forthcoming.

5.  To continue representation of the LLC and Mr. Van Den Heuvel in this matter without payment for attorney fees incurred in continuing such representation will cause the firm undue financial hardship.

6.  This affidavit is being submitted in Support of Motion to Withdraw as Attorneys.

According to the September 20, 2016 Superseding Indictment, Docket No. 16-CR-064, USA v. Ron Van Den Heuvel, Kelly Van Den Heuvel & Paul Piikkila:

5. On or about January 2, 2009, Piikkila authorized a loan of $240,000 to straw borrower [William C. Bain], a former relative of Ronald Van Den Heuvel by marriage. These funds were used to pay personal expenses of Ronald Van Den Heuvel and to pay off different loans obtained for Ronald Van Den Heuvel at different banks.

According to July 1, 2016 Paul Piikkila Plea Agreement in U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Wisconsin Case No. 16-CR-64United States of America v. Paul J. Piikkila:

On January 2, 2009, Piikkila approved a loan of $240,000 to [William C. Bain]. [William ‘Bill’ Bain] is a former business partner of Ron’s [in Ron & Bill Investments, LLP] and a former brother-in-law. [William Bain] fully admits that he was recruited by Ron to be used as a straw borrower to obtain a loan in his name even though the money was not going to him and none of the responsibility for repaying the loans was on his shoulders since it was his understanding, and Piikkila’s, that Ron would be repaying the loan. All of the $240,000 was quickly disbursed. The large majority of it went to pay off earlier loan debts at other banks, either in Ron’s own name or in [William Bain]’s name because he had earlier served as a straw borrower to obtain loans for Ron at other banks. The money left over after these loan payments was used for personal debts of Ron’s.

According to the May 8, 2015 10:00 a.m. to 12:59 p.m Supplemental Examination of Ronald H. Van Den Heuvel Before James O’Neil, Court Commissioner by Atty. Jonathan Smies of Godfrey & Kahn on behalf of Plaintiff Dr. Marco Araujo; Defendant Ron Van Den Heuvel represented by Atty. John Petitjean of Hinkfuss, Sickel, Petitjean & Wieting

Starting on page 36:

[Godfrey & Kahn:]  You live in a house; is that correct?

[Ron Van Den Heuvel:]  Yes.

[G&K:]  And at one time you did own that house, didn’t you?

[RVDH:]  Yes.

[G&K:]  And now it is the case that Manchester Mortgage [Company], LLC [Link 1], owns the property.

[RVDH:]  Correct.

[G&K:]  And do you pay rent then to Manchester Mortgage Company, LLC [Link 2]?

[RVDH:]  No.

[G&K:]  Do you have any kind of agreement with Manchester Mortgage Company, LLC, concerning your ability to live in the residence?

[RVDH:]  I have a handshake.

[G&K:]  What’s the nature of this handshake, as you call it?

[RVDH:]  He holds three million shares in E.A.R.T.H., and as long as I’m working for the betterment of E.A.R.T.H., I stay in the property. If the shares ever go over $6 apiece, he gives me my house title back.

[G&K:]  Who is he? Who are you referring to?

[RVDH:]  Manchester Mortgage. Jim George is the president of it.

[G&K:]  Does Mr. George then – Is it Manchester Mortgage Company, LLC, that has an interest in E.A.R.T.H. or Jim George?

[RVDH:]  Manchester Mortgage. They bought the note from Citizens [Bank].

[G&K:]  And your agreement with Mr. George, was this reduced to writing?

[RVDH:]  No.

[G&K:]  When did you come to this agreement?

[RVDH:]  After.

[G&K:]  So after Manchester Mortgage Company, LLC, obtained – presumably foreclosed on the house, bid at the sale –

[RVDH:]  There were $65 million of debt against it.

[G&K:]  There were $65 million of debt against your residence?

[RVDH:]  Yes.

[G&K:]  And Manchester Mortgage was the senior lender, senior secured lender?

[RVHD:]  It bought the loan from Citizens Bank, foreclosed on the first, and everybody went off the back.

[G&K:]  And after they obtained the property through the process and the courts, they then had an agreement with you, just a verbal – an oral agreement essentially that you would stay there rent free as long as – Can you explain what as long as – As long as what, I guess.

[RVDH:]  I cut the lawn, remove the snow, keep the repairs up, pay the heating and lighting bills.

[G&K:]  So you’re responsible to pay the utilities for the property. Are you responsible to pay the property taxes?

[RVDH:]  Yes.

[G&K:]  Have you paid any property taxes since the Manchester Mortgage Company took ownership of the property?

[RVDH:]  Yes, twice.

[G&K:]  And what years was that?

[RVDH:]   ’11 and ’12. And I personally didn’t pay them.

[G&K:]  Who paid them?

[RVDH:]  Someone else. I don’t remember which person paid them each year.

[G&K:]  Do you have a sense of how much – You did pay them for a number of years when you owned the house, right?

[RVDH:]  Right.

[G&K:]  And do you have a sense as to how much they were then at least?

[RVDH:]  $48,000 a year.

[G&K:]  But as you sit here today, you can’t remember who was willing to pay property taxes for 2011 and 2012 for the property you’re living in?

[RVDH:]  No. I mean, I can go find out.

[G&K:]  Do you think it was a family member or friend?

[RVDH:]  Probably somebody that owed me money.

[G&K:]  Was there any agreement written to reflect that payment on your behalf?

[RVDH:]  No.

[G&K:]  So –

[Atty. Petitjean:]  Other than a tax receipt?

[RVDH:]  I got a receipt from the courthouse.

[G&K:]  So your understanding of this oral agreement you have with – between you and Manchester Mortgage Company, LLC, is that you are to maintain the property, cut the grass, plow the driveway, pay the utilities, pay the property taxes. And what else? Anything else that relates to the property?

[RVDH:]  Nothing else to the property.

[G&K:]  And were there any conditions concerning your role at E.A.R.T.H. and your ability to stay in the residence?

[RVDH:]  No. At my dad’s funeral we talked about it a long time again and perfectly comfortable. He sees the share value going up. It’s on the board.

[G&K:]  So if the shares

[RVDH:]  Hit $6 a share, I get the title back to the house.

[G&K:]  Presumably, that would allow Manchester to liquidate their shares and/or do whatever they want. That’s their decision, I guess.

[RVDH:]  It’s their shares.

[G&K:]  How are those shares valued, if you know?

[RVDH:]  Outside firms.

[G&K:]  When was the last time you had an outside firm prepare a valuation of E.A.R.T.H.?

[RVDH:]  Six months ago.

[G&K:]  And what was the share price valuation at that time?

[RVDH:]  Three something, $3 and some cents.

[G&K:]  And how many shares are outstanding or issued of E.A.R.T.H.?

[RVDH:]  A hundred million.

[G&K:]  I just want to know, how many shares do you own of E.A.R.T.H.?

[RVDH:]  I personally don’t own any of E.A.R.T.H.

[G&K:]  It’s all through –

[RVDH:]  That’s correct.

[G&K:]  It’s all through – I have to go back.

[Ron Van Den Heuvel:]  RVDH[, LLC] or PCDI. I personally don’t own any.

[G&K:]  Indirectly through your ownership of those entities, what is your percentage of interest in E.A.R.T.H.?

[RVDH:] I wouldn’t be able to –

[G&K:]  You have no sense as –

SPRING 2009 : According to 5280 Magazine [Denver, COLORADO]
‘The Biggest Green Scam in America’ by James Carlson
Denver’s Wayde McKelvy raised tens of millions of dollars for a new, clean-energy company that the SEC says was nothing more than an old-school Ponzi scheme

re: MANTRIA CORP. / ETERNAGREEN GLOBAL CORP. / BIOCHAR / PYROLYSIS PONZI SCHEME that was PRAISED BY BILL & HILLARY CLINTON and AL GORE

The spring day had been a warm one, but as Taylor Romero walked from his Centennial office across the parking lot to the Embassy Suites, the sun was setting and the air chilled. His employer, Wayde McKelvy, had been holed up in a room at the hotel for days. Romero knew this likely meant one thing—well, two things: booze and hookers. For as long as Romero had known McKelvy the guy exhibited hedonistic, self-destructive tendencies. Lately, though, he’d been on a Charlie Sheen–like tear. The 46-year-old McKelvy had taken to showing up at work drunk, holding the waist of whichever working girl he’d flown in. He was so blatant that even his wife, the mother of their twin girls, knew about it all. By then, late spring 2009, Donna McKelvy had grown accustomed to her husband and his prostitutes. What she could not abide, however, was the whore du jour banging up the Mercedes-Benz. She’d asked Romero to go to the Embassy and get the keys.

Romero took the elevator up and knocked. The way he remembered it, the door opened, and there, standing on a floor littered with empty Bud Light bottles, was McKelvy. The two men were not merely colleagues, they were friends. They plopped onto a couch, McKelvy dropping his 6-foot-4-inch, 250-pound frame. Romero learned the keys to the Benz were gone. And sure enough, so was the girl. While Romero stuck around, waiting, the two men discussed their dream of making a movie together. It would be dark and atmospheric; McKelvy already picked a tagline: What’s the Definition of Insanity?

Young with long dark hair, Romero is the kind of computer-programmer dude who wears flip-flops to work. He’d built a website for the Mantria Corporation, a new green company for which McKelvy was the lead investment broker and ultimately the sole money engine. This startup, as McKelvy had put it to anyone who’d listen, was a revolutionary investment opportunity. Mantria, so went the pitch to investors, was constructing the country’s first carbon-negative residential community, where energy-efficient housing would be built with sustainable materials, and the whole thing would be powered by alternative energy. As if that weren’t enough, Mantria was also supposedly on the verge of releasing an unprecedented technology that turned garbage into usable materials and produced something called biochar, a charcoal that when used as a fertilizer was carbon-negative. Operating from his hometown of Denver, McKelvy would raise close to $40 million from hundreds of investors, the majority of them from COLORADO.

After a while, a short Latina woman walked into the hotel room holding a bag of groceries and the car keys. Slurring, McKelvy yelled at Romero. Romero yelled back. Something about the family’s car and the prostitute. From a corner of the bottle-strewn room, the prostitute piped up: “Why are you talking about me like I’m not here!” She put down the keys, Romero grabbed them, and he split. Talk about the definition of insanity: “It was classic Wayde under pressure,” Romero says. “The bigger things get, the harder Wayde crashes.”

The crash had only just begun. In November 2009, some six months after that night in the hotel, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filed a civil lawsuit against McKelvy and his wife, and against the Philadelphia-based owners of Mantria. As far as the SEC was concerned, McKelvy had fleeced his investors out of tens of millions of dollars in a big, green Ponzi scheme.

Multimillion dollar white-collar scams are as American as apple pie. See, most recently, Bernie Madoff, who wormed his way into Wall Street and decimated the portfolios of thousands of investors to the tune of $17 billion. Sentenced to life in prison, Madoff has become the infamous face of financial-market malfeasance nationwide. Coloradans, meanwhile, witnessed their own high-profile grifter. Denver hedge fund manager Sean Mueller ripped off 65 people, including John Elway, for some $71 million. Last December, Mueller was sentenced to 40 years in prison. But whereas Madoff’s and Mueller’s frauds could have occurred anywhere, during almost any era, McKelvy and Mantria’s “business plan” was based on a uniquely contemporary premise, and one that has been especially appealing for Coloradans.

The United States shouldn’t be dependent on foreign oil; the country must create a workforce for the 21st century; the environment must be protected: These are a few of the reasons the federal government has been nudging industry toward green, or clean, energy. The national trend has dovetailed nicely with progressive thinking in Colorado, where conservation and sustainability are rooted in the mountain lifestyle. Former Governor Bill Ritter lured numerous clean-tech companies to Colorado, including the world’s largest wind turbine manufacturer, Vestas. He successfully championed a bill that required the state to produce 30 percent of its electricity from renewable energy, the largest proportion in the Western states.

COLORADO is so synonymous with green power that in February 2009, President Obama chose to announce his $787 billion economic-stimulus package—filled with “clean-energy” provisions—in Denver. The venue the president chose was the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, where the roof is home to a solar-panel field, which was installed by a Boulder-based company, Namasté Solar. Indeed, one would be hard-pressed to imagine a place more perfect than Denver to exemplify the confluence of environmentalism and capitalism (not to mention the venture capitalism of Boulder). Arguably, no one is more primed for green investment opportunities—or susceptible to clean-energy con men—than Coloradans. “If you can show me how to save the world,” as a Denver-area woman who was one of the first Mantria investors puts it, “sign me up.”

Bill Clinton recognizing Troy Wragg, found guilty by the SEC of running a Ponzi scheme in 2011 & pled guilty in 2017 to the Mantria Corporation waste energy Ponzi scheme

It was just after Obama’s Denver appearance that McKelvy and his Philly-based Mantria partner, CEO Troy Wragg, were telling investors that the company was engaged in promising meetings with the president of Ivory Coast; that Mantria was hobnobbing with the Clinton Global Initiative; and that the company was “this close” to selling $240 million worth of its “systems.” To develop their audacious projects Wragg and McKelvy needed cash. Mantria investors, according to the SEC, were offered securities in the form of “promissory notes, stock, limited partnership interests, and so-called profits interest.” These contracts promised extraordinary returns over periods as short as eight months.

The reality, according to the SEC, was that Mantria produced virtually no revenue in its two years of operation. The purported $240 million deal vanished. Mantria’s product sales amounted to unloading one bag of biochar. It went for $97. The facts, so say the feds, show that every dime investors received was funded by new investors—in other words, a classic Ponzi scheme. McKelvy was not an employee or corporate officer of Mantria, but he was a rainmaker, persuading investors to empty their retirement accounts for the promise of 17 to “infinite” percent returns.

Since 2008, securities officials have targeted at least five alleged scams involving clean energy, prompting the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority to release an investor alert stating, “It seems like everybody’s going green these days—even fraudsters.” And according to the state and federal paper trail, Mantria is the biggest green scam to date in the United States: Investors lost some $35 million, more than all of the other green scams combined. In the SEC complaint, McKelvy is akin to the Madoff of green—with a touch of Tony Robbins. And there may be another similarity between McKelvy and Madoff, and, for that matter, the local Mueller crook: McKelvy appears to be another financial fraud halted too late due to regulatory bureaucracy.

Troy Wragg, a working-class kid from Philly turned scrappy entrepreneur, created Mantria in 2005 while in his early 20s. His espoused dream was that Mantria would develop a carbon-negative residential utopia. Big dreams from a relative nobody like Wragg needed capital. For about two years, he was in business with BridgePoint Ventures LLC, a Florida-based real estate management firm. Sometime around 2007, however, BridgePoint ended its partnership with Mantria. “We had a pretty unceremonious parting of ways,” says Edward dePasquale, a BridgePoint vice president. The way dePasquale explains it, Wragg’s Mantria was over-appraising real estate, and BridgePoint decided “that we didn’t want to deal with him in any way, shape, or form.” Fortunately for Wragg, one of BridgePoint’s affiliates, Wayde McKelvy, who ran an LLC called Speed of Wealth, saw an opportunity in Mantria, and that same year the two began working together.

The men complemented each other quite well. Wragg was a fast-talking, youthful city slicker from the East Coast; McKelvy, twice the kid’s age, was a rugged, charismatic Coloradan. He attended South High School, then the University of Northern Colorado, where he played offensive lineman on the football team and majored in business. According to three of McKelvy’s former UNC teammates, he was the champion of the freshman beer “chug-a-lug” contest; he had a “screw loose”; and he wasn’t above eating a handful of worms to get a laugh. Former teammate Don Barlass remembers that McKelvy “definitely enjoyed school, enjoyed football, and enjoyed life. If Wayde was around, you knew you’d be having fun.” None of McKelvy’s old pals would have pegged him as a guy to scam anyone. On Team Mantria, Wragg rattled off numbers and stats, whereas McKelvy talked about big-picture-type stuff, in rousing and sometimes blunt everyman language.

On calls with potential investors in spring 2008, the personalities of the new partnership clearly had found their rhetorical groove. The two men were soliciting funds for Mantria Financial LLC, set up ostensibly to finance purchases in the carbon-negative utopia. According to the pitch, this community, Legacy Ridge, in Dunlap, Tennessee, had everything. Ten miles of streams, 12 miles of bluff lines, a five-star restaurant, and two designer golf courses—all being built with sustainable materials and powered by alternative energy. Any investment, Wragg laid out, would earn 17 percent annually for the next two-and-a-half years, and then an additional half-percent equity stake in the company’s projected profits ($70 million) after another two-and-a-half years. The possibilities were astronomical. A $250,000 buy-in would bear a $456,250 profit.

Enter McKelvy: “What Troy and I know,” he said in his folksy Colorado baritone, “is that if we make you happy with your returns—and that’s our number one priority, by the way—that you will always invest with us and we will have an ongoing business.” No one on that call questioned McKelvy’s compensation package. He was pulling 12.5 percent off the top of every investment he brought in, which is a rate of commission double that of what is typical for a well-compensated financial broker. And although the SEC requires broker-dealers be licensed, McKelvy, along with Wragg, was not.

“For those of you waffling out there,” a caller on the teleconference said, “quit your waffling and get with the program. These guys know what they’re doing 110 percent.” Another caller added: “You can’t get a better education than from Wayde.”

In one of the calls, the former college football player sounded as if he were in a locker room at halftime, throwing down a gut-check challenge to his team: “A lot of things I hear out there. Number one: ‘It’s too good to be true.’ The first thing I say is, ‘Well then shouldn’t you jump in it right now?’ I’m sure you’ve heard that it’s too good to be true to get those kinds of returns in this market. Well folks, those of you who are invested with us know it’s not too good to be true. You get your checks. We keep coming out with better products.”

A stroll through The Venetian hotel and casino in Las Vegas is a walk of luxury. Marble pillars and gold-plated fixtures frame every hallway, painted murals adorn arched ceilings. Every turn seems to lead to the casino where you’re enticed to ooh and aah at the pretty possibilities; never mind the odds—bet big. It was here, at the Venetian, in December 2008, that Mantria investors gathered for what the partners described as a “big, end-of-year boot camp.”

They packed 100 to 200 strong into the ballroom, where projections of the Mantria logo—a large, oddly shaped M—were on every wall, looming over the audience. According to a handful of investors present for the gathering, McKelvy lurked in the back of the room while Wragg stood on stage in the spotlight. Mantria, he began, had undoubtedly delivered to investors unparalleled opportunities. None, however, were better than what he was about to present: What if you could help solve the climate crisis and eliminate the need for landfills? What would that look like for America? What about the world?

Well, after scouring the country, Wragg had discovered just such an opportunity. Mantria, he announced, was partnering with a company to develop technology that would produce biochar. What’s more, the technology would transform waste into usable products. It was a concept tailored for marketers. As Wragg repeated throughout his talk: “Trash into cash.” Romero, the computer programmer McKelvy had hired, noticed McKelvy standing at the back of Wragg’s presentation. To no one in particular, McKelvy repeatedly interjected his own version of the slogan he originally coined. “Sh¡t into cash,” he kept saying. “Sh¡t into cash.” Romero could tell that McKelvy was drunk.

After the presentation, audience members lined up to give video testimonials. “It’s been a mind-blowing experience,” one said. Another exclaimed, “I’m, like, having to take sleeping pills because I can’t sleep at night! Because I am so excited about what they’re talking about in our investment opportunities!”

Romero saw that McKelvy wasn’t as enthused. At dinner that first day, McKelvy appeared with a beer in hand, continuing to drink. Having seen his theatrics at Wragg’s speech, and now drinking into the late afternoon—Romero saw this as a possible sign of trouble. Romero was still in high school when a contact of his stepfather’s introduced him to McKelvy. It was the early 2000s, and McKelvy asked the kid to build a website for his wife’s insurance business. Romero jumped at the chance. Up to about 2003, he was paid well to develop the site. But then Romero watched McKelvy implode—drinking heavily and eventually filing for bankruptcy. Romero remembers McKelvy one day coming to him and saying, “Hey, we’re out of money.” Romero left for San Diego, where he remained until McKelvy wooed him back in 2008. Now, in Vegas, there was something in McKelvy’s demeanor; something of that old Wayde that Romero saw in the new Mantria Wayde.

Romero and other employees rode the strip of bright lights in stretch limos. At a VIP club, they were escorted past long lines into roped-off areas where, as Romero puts it, “top-shelf liquor is flowing like the nearby waterfall. It. Was. Crazy.” To employees like Romero, the party seemed a deserved celebration of the past year’s work and the future’s infinite possibilities. “We were going to save the planet,” Romero says, “and we were having a blast doing it.”

McKelvy didn’t attend the party on the strip. By the last day of the three-day boot camp, he was gone. He didn’t even show for his planned presentations. Outwardly, he had plenty of reasons to party and stick around. He had millions of reasons. He was becoming rich off of the commissions. He was well on his way to making $6 million over two-and-a-half years.

Business at Mantria boomed in the new year, 2009. The company was supposedly working on deals with New York and Colorado; the governments of Congo, West Africa, Liberia, Nigeria, and Ivory Coast; and with corporations like Cowboy Charcoal and John Deere. After standing on stage with Bill and Hillary Clinton in New York that year, Wragg employed what may have been stunningly transparent phrasing when he told investors, “It only adds another aura of credibility to what we’re doing.” McKelvy had already raised another $27 million.

Experts say Mantria’s technology could have achieved something similar to what was reported. But only with years of further tweaking. Hugh McLaughlin, the director of biocarbon research for Alterna BioCarbon in British Columbia, recalls witnessing Wragg tell a renewable energy conference that Mantria’s technology could generate biochar at a rate that would exceed scientific limits. Mantria’s promise, simply put, ridiculously outpaced reality. “Every fact about this thing,” McLaughlin says, “was exaggerated beyond any reasonable technical standards.” Yet only a few weeks after Vegas, during a January webinar with investors, McKelvy and Wragg projected a 53 percent annual return on a buy-in to the carbon-diversion systems.

Whatever melancholy – or was it pangs of conscience? – McKelvy might have been feeling in Vegas, was gone. Never mind the odds—bet big, was essentially what he told his investors: “I want you to go to your [401(k)] administrator tomorrow and ask them what it would take for you to roll out all your money. Don’t worry about anything they tell you. They’re going to try to frighten you. Don’t worry about that because [in] the mega-Webinar on February 10 I’m going to blow your mind.”

The mind-blower, investors learned on a teleconference, was that the U.S. Department of Agriculture was set to offer loan guarantees to Mantria, an FDIC-like endorsement backing investors’ money. A month later, in March 2009, Mantria announced a supposed letter of intent with the state of New York. But there were no deals with the Department of Agriculture and no letters of intent with any state governments.

That was right about the time McKelvy started living life as if he were the star of a Girls Gone Wild video. A source familiar with the McKelvy family says, “As soon as this guy smells money, he gets ready for alcohol and a bacchanalian orgy.” He also seemed to be the unhappiest man on the planet. McKelvy told Romero that he was being asked to raise more money than his original goal. McKelvy wanted investors to get their money back and to be done with this. But, he told Romero, “I’m at the point of no return.”

During this period, McKelvy’s bank account seemed as bipolar as his moods. Between January and September 2009, the account showed nearly $3 million in deposits. That account’s balance at the end of September 2009 was just $1,325.98. As he once said to his investors, “Bottom line is: I love cash flow. I like lifestyle.” There were stays at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, the Beverly Wilshire, and other high-end hotels. One bill alone, for the Wynn Las Vegas Resort, totaled $9,628.22. The VIP treatment at clubs. A BMW. A $7,000-a-month oceanside condo in Miami. It wasn’t just him: Donna McKelvy was routinely making $20,000 withdrawals. Though it was Wayde who doled out the biggest bucks. In one three-day spree in Las Vegas, he spent nearly $25,000 on three pieces of Cartier jewelry, which, Donna has said, wasn’t for her.

McKelvy and Donna met in the late 1980s at a party in Denver, just after graduating college. The two married not long after and had twin girls. Donna went into the insurance business, while he launched a string of business flops.

By the time of the jewelry purchases in summer 2009, his and Donna’s marriage had disintegrated. McKelvy had moved to Miami full-time. There’s a good chance the jewelry was for McKelvy’s new girlfriend, a woman named Angela. Obviously years younger than McKelvy, the woman had platinum-blond hair, fake breasts, and a backside so pronounced that people close to him speculated it was enhanced with implants. McKelvy’s friends whispered that there was something about Angela that was…no one could seem to quite put their finger on it.

Meanwhile, on investor calls, every offering was better than the last, each a galactic chance at wealth—and possibly the final one. In a summer teleconference, what McKelvy called his “heart-to-heart,” he talked about how a new deal netting 55 to 100 percent annualized return was the “biggest, most generous offer we’ve ever made.… You guys are sitting there with Mantria on the cusp of greatness, in my belief,” he said softly, sounding on the verge of tears. “In my heart of hearts, I believe that. We’re on the cusp of greatness here.”

A few months later, in mid-September 2009, McKelvy told investors that Mantria had secured somewhere between $250 million and “over $1 billion” in financing, and it was the happiest day of his last five years. One caller was—at last—skeptical, and asked, “Is [the biochar technology] generating any revenues at this point?” Wragg skirted the issue, and when McKelvy jumped in, he finally admitted, “Right now our biochar sales are not explosive…but we do have a lot of orders.”

McKelvy implied that he’d heard similar concerns before, and that he was sick of it. “It’s time people get off the fence,” he said. “You know, I preach and preach and preach. I teach people strategies, but it always comes down to action. People say there are the haves and the have-nots in the world. That’s not true. It’s the wills and the will-nots. The people that do. And the people that do nothing.” It would be one of the last investor calls. A few weeks later, an October 7 letter from the SEC notified McKelvy that he and Mantria were under investigation.

“I probably shouldn’t talk to you,” McKelvy told me, “but that’s just who I am.” It was last February when he called, and since I’d left several messages for him and heard nothing, the call was unexpected. He sounded as if he were resigned to being the subject of the SEC lawsuit. He sounded almost as if he understood the reasons for it. And he seemed to shrug it off: “It’s the game I love,” he said. “I could care less about the money. My love is the game.” There’s evidence in McKelvy’s past that he views business as a game, and, to hear it from some of his former clients, he doesn’t play fair.

While Donna built a career in insurance and her husband opened that string of businesses, between 1995 and 2005, they owed the federal government more than $420,000. They were also named in a number of lawsuits. One lawsuit against McKelvy involved Conifer residents Cathy Reynolds and her husband Pat. Beginning in 2000, Cathy says, McKelvy called her numerous times out of the blue, claiming the company holding her mortgage was going out of business; she should stop sending payments. Not to worry, though; he was seeking a solution. McKelvy, as Cathy recalls, was direct but comforting. He played up his family, talking about his wife and daughters. According to Cathy’s 2002 suit filed in Jefferson County District Court, McKelvy told Cathy she “was just a number to the bank, not to call because they didn’t care about [her] and that he could help resolve her situation.”

Cathy says that if her home wasn’t going to be foreclosed on before McKelvy persuaded her to stop making payments, it certainly was after. Through a series of convoluted maneuverings—and what the Reynoldses say was a forged document—the mortgage was transferred numerous times. (At one point, it filtered through Jaguar Group LLC, whose head was himself recently convicted of a $3.4 million Ponzi scheme.) In the end, the Reynoldses and McKelvy agreed to disagree and the case was dismissed. Along the way, the couple filed for bankruptcy to halt their home’s public auction and reclaimed it by signing a mortgage double the amount of their original.

In researching their case, Cathy says, they came across other people who had been stung the same way. The suit may have been the first record of McKelvy being at the center of a muddled transaction that he initiated and from which he likely profited. “If he was covered in gas in front of me,” Pat Reynolds says, “I’d provide the match.”

By the mid-2000s, McKelvy had moved on to form an investment club called Retirement TRACS. It was at one of its meetings that Louisville, Colorado, resident Mary Phillips met McKelvy. Phillips is a self-assured woman with a Ph.D. in American studies. When she picks up a call, she answers, “This is Dr. Mary Phillips.” At the workshops she attended, McKelvy was a man of “simple American humor” and a bit brash. (He once yelled at a seminar, “What’s wrong with you folks? You expect change but you don’t change!”) Nonetheless, he struck her as a guy giving middle-class Coloradans a chance at investments usually reserved for the rich. Phillips and her husband lost a total of $500,000 to McKelvy and Mantria.

It’s tempting, perhaps, to characterize Mantria’s investors as unsophisticated suckers, but research says otherwise. Most are like Phillips: college-educated, higher-income, and more financially literate. With some investment knowledge, people tend to overestimate their ability to smell a raw deal, which researchers believe makes them vulnerable to scams. They also happen to be more prone to emotional pitches. Besides, Phillips points out that her husband went to Tennessee to see the Mantria-owned property, he saw the machine that made biochar, and even received a bag of the stuff. (Real in that it existed, but was nothing more than a facade.) As Phillips says when asked why she believed in sky-high returns, “Wouldn’t we all just like to catch a break, get something really good? It’s the American dream.”

At TRACS investment club meetings Phillips attended, McKelvy tapped into that desire. To play with the big boys, he preached liquidating all traditional funds and buying a universal life insurance policy, which, of course, he would sell. This plan acted as a sort of self-lending system, from which people could borrow at a relatively lower rate and invest in higher-return opportunities. What opportunities, exactly? Well, McKelvy had the scoop on some deals. On his advice, the club would roll $11.4 million into corporate bad debt and real estate in Mexico, the Dominican Republic, and even Granby, COLORADO. McKelvy would bring a deal to the club and say the returns were between 12 and 50 percent. Then he’d tilt his head back and crack a sly smile as if to say, Wait till you see what you really get. Running TRACS, McKelvy himself did well enough that Donna could leave her job in insurance. She came to work with him as his secretary. Meanwhile, to the club’s consternation, none of the investments panned out or paid out.

Of all McKelvy’s TRACS-proposed deals, none were as ludicrous as the $250,000 expenditure on a supposedly rare pink diamond. According to what McKelvy told his members, they could double their money over a year by purchasing the gem and flipping it to one of the potential buyers. He whetted the club’s appetite when he mentioned one particularly interested party: Jennifer Lopez. McKelvy told investors that TRACS purchased the diamond, but no members ever saw it, and it never sold. One investor refers to it as the “diamond boondoggle.” Nearly all of the $11 million invested under the auspices of McKelvy’s TRACS was never seen again.

In 2007, after he met Troy Wragg, McKelvy presented an incomparable invitation to his TRACS members: A chance to get in on the ground floor of a growing green company. This wasn’t just about wealth—it was about investing in the future of humanity. Incredibly, some of the club members followed McKelvy’s new advice. However, several other folks had seen enough, and filed complaints with the Colorado Division of Insurance. The SEC was brought in. (The SEC declined to comment on the record for this story.) McKelvy’s explanation comes by way of what he told his investors: “The SEC brought me forward in 2007 and dismissed it.”

A year later on May 30, 2008, the COLORADO Division of Insurance notified the COLORADO Division of Securities that a new complaint was filed against TRACS. At this point, McKelvy was devoted to raising money for Mantria. It wasn’t until January 30, 2009, that a state securities investigator, Jerry Lowe, asked the insurance division for the emails sent from McKelvy to the initial complainant.

In those emails, investigator Lowe read about green technology with the potential for gigantic returns. Five months after asking for the emails, the investigator attended two seminars. During one, Lowe listened as Wragg raised the prospect of “hundreds of percent rates of return.” That seminar occurred on May 21, 2009, almost a full year after the Division of Securities first received the complaint. The SEC, according to court testimony, wasn’t brought into the Mantria investigation until about five months later in “late September, early October of 2009.”

Miles Gersh, a local securities lawyer, says the SEC is efficient after charges have been filed. But “as far as [the SEC’s] ability to stop wrongdoing before the fact, though, they are a bit like traffic officers: many intersections, relatively few cops.” Regulators at all levels tend to be zealous guardians of their work product, Gersh says, which is a polite way of saying all of the state and federal investigative bodies are territorial and each wants to make the bust. Competency isn’t the problem, he says, it’s “unwarranted, counterproductive secrecy.”

“The primary reason” the SEC is tapped to help, says Colorado securities commissioner Fred Joseph, “is when multiple states are involved.” The Mantria case certainly fit the bill. The company was registered in Delaware, based in Philadelphia, selling projects in Tennessee, and raising funds out of COLORADO. Yet it’s reasonable to conclude that if the state securities division had bothered to scratch the surface of Mantria, it would have brought in the SEC sooner.

When the SEC did initiate an investigation in fall 2009, it acted quickly. Within a month and a half, it filed its lawsuit and froze the assets of Mantria, Wragg, McKelvy, Speed of Wealth, Donna, and Wragg’s partner, an Amanda Knorr. For every Mantria investor, it was too late. By that time, investors had poured in more than $54 million.

On November 16, 2009, the news broke of the SEC’s filing against McKelvy and company. The news release said representations by McKelvy and Wragg were “laced with bogus claims.” At that point, as McKelvy himself has said, “I sat down and started reinventing myself at that moment.” Wayde McKelvy soon re-emerged as Clint Brashman, now apparently up to some of the same old business—and with a pornographic twist.

In the wake of the SEC’s filing, numerous websites popped up exhorting Americans to rid themselves of traditional investments, and were registered to a man named Clint Brashman. A search for that name brings up multiple videos offering marketing advice. One was posted on June 5, 2010, by “thebrashman,” and opens with a guy speaking directly into a camera. He’s thinner now and has grown a goatee, but there’s no mistaking it: It’s McKelvy.

“The Brashman” hasn’t restricted his pursuits to marketing and financial sites: He’s tied to a porn site as well. The Brashman’s email is listed as the administrative contact for a pornographic blog, where on the first page viewers see another familiar face, this one framed with platinum-blond hair dropping past fake breasts. It’s Angela. On the website she reveals she is a transsexual. She writes on her blog that her boyfriend “lost all his money” at the beginning of 2010 and “drinks too much.” Nonetheless, he’s done a lot for her, and she loves him still. They’ve been together in Miami for two years.

Initially, McKelvy told me he has nothing to do with that blog or an accompanying site that recruits other transsexual folks to produce pornography. He denied this even though the recruiting site is registered to his old business, Retirement TRACS Seminars. Confronted with these connections, McKelvy then said he’s made no money from his pursuits as Clint Brashman. “Why should I legally make any—that’s going to come out wrong—why should I make any income? What good does it do for me to make any money? The [SEC] is just going to take it.”

Speaking in the slight drawl that fed his image of a good-hearted Coloradan, McKelvy said that he may have done some things wrong. As far as Mantria, he admitted to the definition of a Ponzi scheme while bafflingly denying it was a Ponzi scheme: “I don’t care what the lawyers at SEC tell you; when you invest in mortgage-backed securities, they take money and go loan it to John Doe to buy a house. Doe makes payments and it flows back to me.… What I’m trying to say is that new money is always replacing old money in any investment.”

He rambled during the conversation, one minute saying those who lost money are the true victims; a minute later he lamented his crumbling reputation and compared those upset about losing their savings to homeowners complaining about their subprime mortgages. They could have asked questions, he said, done their own due diligence. “Not to sound like an asshole, I think it’s time Americans start taking some responsibility. I get that from my ex-wife now. Everything bad in her life is my fault.”

A few days after our phone conversation last February, McKelvy signed an agreement with the SEC in which he neither admitted nor denied the SEC’s allegations. However, according to the Order of Permanent Injunction, McKelvy “will be precluded from arguing that he did not violate the federal securities laws as alleged,” and furthermore, will not “take any action or to make or permit to be made any public statement denying, directly or indirectly, any allegation in the Complaint or creating the impression that the Complaint is without factual basis.”

According to the SEC resolution, fines still could, and likely would, be levied against him on behalf of Mantria’s investors. And this SEC settlement agreement does not preclude the possibility of related civil actions, or, say, criminal charges that might come from the FBI. (Wragg, Knorr, and McKelvy’s ex-wife, Donna, signed similar orders.)

To date, no criminal charges have been filed against anyone involved [UPDATE: SEE 09/02/15 UNSEALED INDICTIMENT BELOW] with Mantria, but a couple of investors have been contacted by the FBI. Agents want to know what claims investors heard, what they were promised, and how much they lost. It’s unclear whether agents know about a guy named Clint Brashman.

“All of us have our own life lies that we tell ourselves,” Mantria investor Dr. Mary Phillips said about McKelvy. “Who we are, what we stand for. For Wayde, he wanted to be the ringmaster. He wanted to sway public opinion. Maybe he was lying to himself about what he was doing.”

05/15/09 : According to the September 20, 2016 Superseding Indictment, Docket No. 16-CR-064, USA v. Ron Van Den Heuvel, Kelly Van Den Heuvel & Paul Piikkila:

7. On or about May 15, 2009, Piikkila authorized a loan of $129,958 to straw borrower [Steven Peters, a Partner with Ron, Artley Skenandore Jr., and OSGC in Nature’s Way Tissue Corp.]. This loan consolidated the debts due on the [Feb. 11 and Sept. 12, 2009] loans notedabove. …

9. On or about May 15, 2009, Piikkila authorized a loan of $250,000 to straw borrower [Julie Gumban], an employee of Ronald and Kelly Van Den Heuvel. These funds were promptly paid to RVDH, Inc. and KYHKJG, LLC; paid to [Steven Peters] as payment for the loan noted in paragraph 7 above; or paid to [William C. Bain] to be used as payment on the loans noted in paragraph 5 above.

According to the July 1, 2016 Paul Piikkila Plea Agreement in U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Wisconsin Case No. 16-CR-64United States of America v. Paul J. Piikkila:

On the same date, May 15, 2009, Piikkila approved a loan of $25,000 to [Juile Gumban… a nanny for Ron and Kelly’s children. She comes from the Philippines and does not speak English well. The money borrowed in her name was immediately distributed to make a payment on the [Steve Peters] loan, make a payment on the [Bill Bain] loan, and to transfer money to Ron’s company, RVDH, and Kelly’s company, KYHKJG.  [Julie Gumban] states that she was pressed to take out this loan by Ron and Kelly for whom she worked. It was her vague understanding that this money could be used by her to invest in Kelly’s company, but none of the money was used for that purpose. [Julie Gumban] states that Kelly brought her to the Ron’s office to sign the loan papers with Piikkila. …

Kelly Lea Yessman Van Den Heuvel – Ronald’s wife & Co-Conspirator

Other apparent misleading information provided by Ron to [Paul] Piikkila and put into [Horicon Bank]’s records included grossly inflated financial statements. [Julie Gumban] had come to this country and had been working as a nanny for Kelly and Ron. Her financial statement claimed that she had assets of nearly $280,000, including $208,000 in real estate. It claimed that she had salaries and bonuses totalling $65,000 a year. However, she states that Ron and Kelly were not really paying her and were months behind in her salary. …

Kelly Van Den Heuvel culpably participated in the scheme, especially as to the loans to KYHKJG and [Julie Gumban]. Of course, she shared Ron’s motive for acquiring money to maintain their lifestyle.

As for the [Julie Gumban] loan, it seems that Kelly [Van Den Heuvel] was primarily responsible for that one. [Julie Gumban] states that Kelly is the person who physically brought her into Ron’s office to close that loan with Piikkila. Kelly told Piikkila that [Julie Gumban] was paid $50,000 a year but [Julie Gumban] says she was not being paid and, in fact, Kelly was running up debts on [Julie Gumban’s] credit cards. Prior to the issuance of the loan, Piikkila was communicating by email with Kelly about how the money was going to be disbursed. As noted above, none of it was disbursed for the benefit of [Julie Gumban.]

The purposes of the [Julie Gumban] loan were misrepresented in the bank’s records. [Julie Gumban] was supposedly to invest in KYHKJG [LLC] but none of the money was used for that purpose.

[Julie Gumban] agrees that Kelly asked her to take out the loan to invest in KYHKJG. [Julie Gumban] agrees that her financial statement was false and she did not know where the money went.

10. On or about September 11, 2009, Piikkila authorized a loan of $240,000 to Source of Solutions, LLC, one of Ronald Van Den Heuvel’s business entities. Signing the business note for Source of Solutions was [Debra Stary], Ronald Van Den Heuvel’s administrative assistant. These funds were promptly transferred to Ronald Van Den Heuvel’s other business entities, paid out to Ronald Van Den Heuvel’s employees, used to pay off Ronald Van Den Heuvel’s debts to other companies and other banks, and used to make payments against balances due on the loans noted in paragraph e., 7, and 9 above.

11. On or about September 25, 2009, Piikkila authorized a loan of $10,000 to RVDH, Inc. These funds were promptly transferred to another of Ronald Van Den Heuvel’s business entities.

According to the July 1, 2016 Paul Piikkila Plea Agreement in U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Wisconsin Case No. 16-CR-64United States of America v. Paul J. Piikkila

On or about September 11, 2009, Piikkila approved a loan of $240,000 to Source of Solutions [LLC]. The loan application was signed off on by [Debra Stary]. She served for years as an administrative assistant and jack-of-all-trades for Ron. The witnesses associated with Ron’s businesses all agreed that [Debbie Stary] had no real authority in the company and just acted at Ron’s direction. She was made an officer of Source of Solutions shortly before this loan was taken out. None of the money went to Source of Solutions. Much of the money was transferred to Ron’s other business entities. Some was used to pay for personal expenses of Ron and Kelly, including the Packers luxury box they regularly rented. Lump sum payments were made to employees, including $5,000 to [Debbie Stary]. Payments were made against the other Horicon loans. Piikkila was repaid for having personally covered a short-fall of Ron’s in a different account at Horicon Bank.

According to EXHIBT A of the , U. S. District Court, Eastern District of Wisconsin, Docket No. 16-CR-64, United States of America  v.  Ronald H. Van Den Heuvel,
Paul Piikkila, and Kelly Y. Van Den Heuvel

Debra Stary worked as [Ron] Van Den Heuvel’s secretary for 17-18 years. She was his right hand person, kept all the ledgers and was in charge of and maintained finances. She had no decision making authority. 

Debra Stary was the


Vice President of


Nature’s Way


[Tissue Corp.].


She didn’t want to


be on the Board but


[Ron] Van Den Heuvel


browbeat her until


she agreed.

  

[Paul] Piikkila didn’t know if Stary and Van Den Heuvel had a romantic relationship. Van Den Heuvel was intimidating and Piikkila once saw him punch Howard Bedford. They had a fight because Van Den Heuvel approached [Ken Dardis] and asked him to invest $30,000. Bedford told him not to invest. Van Den Heuvel needed the money immediately for the Waste Fiber facility.

[Paul J.] Pikkila presented the $7.1 million loan [proposal] to the [Horicon Bank] Loan Committee for approval. Piikila stated that [the] loan purpose was to purchase equipment for the paper mill. Piikkila said that the loan committee denied the loan because they did not like [Ron Van Den Heuvel]’s character. Piikkila reviewed the loan presentation and his attention was brought to the section intended to list the other related loans (Attachment 2). The RVDH [LLC] loan previously discussed was not listed in this section. Pikkila could not explain why he hadn’t listed that loan.

Piikkila restructured the $7.1 million loan [request] several times and presented it to the loan committee. The loan was denied each time.

Pikkila denied multiple times that bank management told him not ot loan money to [Ron Van Den Heuvel] or his related businesses. He was presented an email from Schwab to Piikkila which stated that the bank was not interested in loaning to [Ron Van Den Heuvel] unless the loan was collateratlized by CDs (Attachment 3). Piikkila did not remember that email. Piikkila stated that he continued to loan to [Ron Van Den Heuvel] because he felt he “could handle” him.

William ‘Bill’ Bain and wife Cynthia Bain – sister of  Nature’s Way Tissue Corp.’s  Vice-President Debra Stary.

Piikkila stated that [Ron Van Den Heuvel] came to him and asked if he could approve a loan to William Bain [Bill Bain]. Bain is [Ron Van Den Heuvel]’s former brother-in-law [and partner in Ron & Bill Investments LLP,  and  Vice-President of Vos Electric, Inc.] [Ron Van Den Heuvel] said that he would pledge collateral for the loan.

Piikkila claimed that he thought the loan proceeds would be a split between Bain and [Ron Van Den Heuvel]. Piikkila said that at the closing Bain said he was not going to make any payments to the loan. Piikila counseled him that he should not sign the loan if he did not understand that he was responsible. Bain then signed for the loan. When asked if he thought this was a red flag, Pikkila said he didn’t think so because Bain was an accomplished businessman and knew what signing for a loan entailed.

Piikkila stated that Kelly Van Den Heuvel, [Ron Van Den Heuvel]’s wife, introduced Julie Gumban … to him for a loan. … Piikkila stated that it seemed as though [Julie] Gumban did not really understand what was going on because she didn’t speak English very well. He thought that Kelly Van Den Heuvel was pushing [Julie Gumban] into getting the loan. Piikkila approved the loan anyway. Piikkila thought that Gumban was investing in KYHKJG, [LLC] owned by Kelly Van Den Heuvel.

Piikkila stated that [Julie] Gumban had taken out previous loans and credit cards for the Van Den Heuvel[s]. Piikila was asked why he approved a loan for Gumban because she had a low credit score…, lots of credit card debt and the unsecured loan was half of her annual salary. Piikkila stated that he thought Gumban’s living expenses were low and therefore she would be able to repay the loan.

Pikkila then admitted that he knew that [Julie] Gumban’s loan would be used to pay down [Ron Van Den Heuvel]’s other loans at Horicon [Bank]. Piikila stated that he approved this loan so [Ron Van Den Heuvel]’s loans would stay off the watch list.

At this point in the interview Piikkila’s attorney’s asked for a break so they could speak to their client.

After the break,
Piikkila explained 
why he thought doing business with [Ron Van Den Heuvel] would be beneficial to the bank. He said
that [E.A.R.T.H. / Environmental Advanced Reclamation Technology HQ, LLC / renamed Reclamation Technology Systems, LLC / RTS] was the endgame and Piikkila had full faith that [Ron Van Den Heuvel] would be successful in this venture. After [E.A.R.T.H.] took off, [Ron Van Den Heuvel] would bring his deposits to Horicon [Bank] and this would be a big payoff. Piikkila stated that he did this for his reputation and would hopefully get an additional bonus. Piikkila had worked closely with [Ron Van Den Heuvel] while he was at Anchor Bank and spoke to him on a weekly basis. Piikkila reiterated that he did not know how [Ron Van Den Heuvel] knew that he was at Horicon Bank and did not seek him out for business. …

Piikkila made a $250,000 loan to Source of Solutions [LLC]. The authorized signer was Debra Stary. [Ron Van Den Heuvel] made her a Vice President of the company so she could sign for the note to keep [Ron Van Den Heuvel]’s name off the paperwork so [Horicon Bank] management would not notice it. Piikkila added that [Debra] Stary also typed up the lease agreements which were later disputed by the bank.

Piikkila’s attorney’s noted that [Debra] Stary’s signature looked very similar to the renewal signature for the $70,000 KYHKJG line of credit.

Piikkila worked for [Ron Van Den Heuve] after he was fired from Horicon Bank. He provided some information on [Ron Van Den Heuvel] and potentially defrauded investors. …

Debra Stary and William Bain’s wife [Cynthia Bain] are sisters.

Debra Stary no longer works for [Ron Van Den Heuvel] and is now with NPS [Corp.]. She was very close to [Ron] Van Den Heuvel and would do anything he asked.
Pikkilla stated that her family
 
had an intervention
to get her to quit working for [Ron Van Den Heuvel].


09/25/09 : According to the July 1, 2016 Paul Piikkila Plea Agreement in U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Wisconsin Case No. 16-CR-64United States of America v. Paul J. Piikkila

The last loan was on or about September 25, 2009 where Piikkila approved a $10,000 loan to Tissue Technology [LLC], another of Ron’s entities. $1,000 was deposited into the Tissue Technology account and the remaining $9,000 was taken out in cash.

A number of categories of evidence tend to prove that Ron acted with fraudulent intent by obtaining these loans through the submission of information he knew to be false.

Of course, he had a motive since these practices allowed him to obtain large quantities of money which he could use for his own purposes. All of the witnesses agree that Ron and Kelly Van Den Heuvel lived a high-end-lifestyle including an expensive house, another residence in Florida, expensive automobiles, a live-in nanny, expansive use of credit cards, and a private plane. all this despite little evidence of actual business activity by any of Ron’s business entities.

The reason for obtaining the loans through straw borrowers was apparent from the circumstances. It had to be done that way because the bank would not loan any money to Ron or his entities. So, it was necessary to put the loans in the names of the straw borrowers, always at amounts of $250,000 or less so that Piikkila did not need to obtain authorization from his superiors at the bank.

The straw borrowers all state that Ron caused them to serve in the role as straw borrowers and that it was all done with [Paul] Piikkila’s knowledge. On the [Bill Bain] loan, there is even a written proposal from Ron to Piikkila about the terms which should be used for that loan.

The fact that Ron was responsible for these loans, rather than the straw borrowers, is supported by the fact that whatever collateral was offered as security for these loans was collateral owned or controlled by Ron, not the straw borrowers.

Once the bank started to try to collect on this collateral after there was default on the loans, the bank representatives learned that the collateral was often inadequate as security for the loans. Property was not worth what it was represented to be worth. Properties were already encumbered such that the bank had inferior position in terms of foreclosing on certain properties. Ownership of some of the collateral was in dispute and it appears that Ron pledged collateral that he did not necessarily own.

Each of the loans was purportedly for some general business purpose such as the purchase of equipment or operating capital. However, the loan proceeds consistently went to pay off old loans, often obtained by the straw borrowers for Ron’s benefit, or to pay off Ron’s personal expenses, not any stated business purpose.

There are various written and oral communications from Ron after the banks started looking into collecting on these loans which show that he acknowledged responsibility for repayment, corroborating the point that these were really his loans, not those of the straw borrowers. That includes email that Ron exchanged with various bank personnel and the straw borrowers, talks he had with invdividuals tasked by the bank to collect on the loans, and a written repayment agreement he had with [Steven Peters] acknowledging Ron’s responsibility to repay [Steven Peter]’s loans. [William Bain] communicated with Ron about settling his debt to the bank. All of the memo lines on the various [Bill Bain] checks which went to pay off earlier loans refer to the payment of Ron’s earlier loans or notes. Prior to the Source of Solutions loan, Ron and Piikkila exchanged emails making it plain that Ron was the true applicant for that loan.


10/06/09 : PBS, Nightly Business Report – Plastic May Be the Newest Fuel Find


10/09/09 : CNN, The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer – Entrepreneur says he strikes gold with our garbage

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Like the alchemists who once tried to turn lead into gold, a green entrepreneur says he has found a cost-effective method for turning plastic trash into oil.

During a recent visit to his new demonstration plant in Maryland, Envion CEO Michael Han describes his process: Waste plastic is shredded and melted and then processed in a way that separates the petroleum from the rest of the ingredients.

At one end of the machinery, shredded plastic trash is dumped in a hopper and goes up a conveyor belt into a “reactor.” At the other end is a spaghetti of pipes and valves and tanks.

Han turns open a spigot on one of the pipes and produces a liquid the color of apple juice. It smells kind of like diesel, and Han claims it’s ready to be processed for any number of uses: fueling cars, diesel generators or even jets.

But not all of the ingredients in plastic can be refined into petroleum. All the chemicals that were added when the plastic was produced must be separated out and collected in a sediment tank.

That could be a problem, says Kert Davies, a researcher with the environmental group Greenpeace. He has not visited the plant, but after reading Envion’s literature, he asked, “what happens to the additives and the metals and the other things?”

Envion is hoping to find asphalt makers who can use the sludge as an ingredient for paving after the metals are filtered out. Otherwise, it can be dried by microwaving and the dust sent to a landfill.

“Then you end up with a different problem,” Davies said. “Is that going to a hazardous waste landfill?”

But Han says that it’s not hazardous, and most important, that the process releases no gas into the air.

“You don’t smell anything burning,” he said. “We don’t incinerate. We simply melt.”

Han set up his demonstration at the Montgomery County dump in Maryland. Amid bales of crushed yogurt containers and plastic bottles, there seems to be little risk that he will run out of trash to feed into his machine.

Envion is pitching the technology to sanitation departments, promising it will cut down on their trash volume by consuming up to 10,000 tons of plastic per year while producing some revenue as well.

The plant could produce up to 60,000 barrels of oil a year, Han says, and although some of that oil is used to keep the machinery running, the rest can be sold to an oil company for profit.

The plant cost $4 million to build, but Han says it can produce oil for as little as $10 a barrel at a time when oil is selling for more than $70 a barrel.

Davies said that “finding new oil to burn is not the goal. The goal should be to burn less oil.”

But Han said, “if there’s a way that we can solve the problem of accumulation of waste plastic in our country and at the same time turn it into a byproduct that is cost effective, then I think it’s a win-win situation.”


11/09/09 : OSGC signed the Legislative Award Agreement WI Dept. of Commerce Contract #LEG FY10-19812 which states:

WHEREAS, 2009 Wisconsin Act 28 authorizes the Department to make an annual grant of $1,000,000.00 in each of the year 2009- 11 biennium to Oneida Seven Generations Corporation from funds encumbered in the appropriation under section 20.143 (kj) in the statutes of previous years but not disbursed for grants to Oneida Small Business Inc. and Project 2000 from the gaming economic diversification grant and loan program.” (2009–2011 WI Dept. of Commerce disbursed $2,000,000.00 to OSGC).

(ii)  The Recipient shall provide documentation that the grant funds were expended as outlined in LEG FY10-19812 Exhibit B.

(iii)  The Recipient shall submit a detailed audit of how the funds were expended by the Recipient documenting how the grant funds were used to establish a state-of-the-art energy recovery facility in Brown County within 6 months of spending that amount of the grant.

(iv)  The Recipient shall provide a detailed report describing the results achieved for the project related to the energy recovery facility established in Brown County. The report shall include information regarding the volume of waste processed (MSW) as well as the amount of energy generated and converted into electricity. The report shall also include an estimate of the amount of methane reduction, the number of full-time positions created and the potential for assembly or manufacturing operations as a result of the project.”

LEG FY10-19812 – EXHIBIT B :  THE  SCHEME  of  OSGC  /  GBRE  /  IEP  /  ACTI  …  and RON VAN DEN HEUVEL / GREEN BOX NA, LLC

Oneida Seven Generations Corporation is the majority shareholder in IEP Development, LLC, a consulting firm specializing in cooperative energy research & development and advisory due diligence to independent energy projects and economic development. IEP is focused on developing and promoting biomass technologies that reduce landfill waste, captures methane and reduce carbon production.

Oneida Energy, LLC will be formed by IEP Development, LLC to engage in for profit energy recovery and electric generation operations. Oneida Energy will provide waste disposal and energy recovery through the use of technology that harnesses the energy of waste and other economically suitable materials and converts the energy to electricity. The by-product of this material is a carbon char that can be sold as a value added product. The system will be designed to operate 24 hours per day, 365 days per year with required maintenance every 2,000 hours of operation.

During the demonstration phase, the facility will employ 6-8 individuals. A fully expanded site in the future may employ from 16 to 24 individuals. The facility will be located on the Oneida Reservation, adjacent to an existing waste transfer station operated by Brown County. The waste transfer station is also located at the site of a capped landfill that will provide landfill gas to the project in addition to the waste stream.

IEP has reached agreements with several vendors for their placement of proprietary systems for gasification of metropolitan solid waste. IEP focused on technologies and systems that do not use any type of incineration and instead use EPA approved clean gasification systems to produce the thermal flow (heat) that can be directed into a number of off-the-shelf generation systems to produce electricity at an economical rate of power production.

ACTI’s Abdul Latif Mahjoob

In conjunction with joint venture partner AITI [sicACTI or another version of Abdul Latif Mahjoob‘s American Combustion Technology, Inc.], IEP can acquire rights to manufacture and assemble the products and has exclusivity to market the waste-to-energy systems to tribal, municipal and county governments throughout the United States. Power purchase agreements will comprise approximately 90% of the revenue stream from the IEP system. Initially, the demonstration phase will be able to convert up to 50 tons per day of municipal solid waste, with a peak power of 6-8MW, annually producing 60,000,000 KWH providing which should provide approximately $4.8 million annually in power sales. Once complete the site can quickly be expanded to process up to 120 tons per day and 5MW of electricity production.

The company is working with the Bureau of Indian Affairs for project financing. The Oneida Tribe will set aside approximately 50 acres for the project for a value of $1.2 million. OSGC will manage the lease of this property as well as commit $800,000 of value in the way of office staff, office space, administration costs and money.

According to another Exhibit B – the ‘CONFIDENTIAL’ brochure titled ‘GREEN BOX NA, LLC: Sound Path to biomass’s most efficient technologies’ which was attached to the March 20, 2013 Amended Complaint and Jury Trial Demand, Brown Co. Case No, 13CV463Marco Araujo, M.D. v. Ronald Van Den Heuvel and Green Box NA, and cites ACTI operating in Los Angeles; Carson, CA; and Paramount, CA:

GREEN BOX

Five steps:

1. Sourcing and Collecting biomass: waste streams from fast food, amusement park, and others: 500 [Tons Per Day]

2. Sorting: brown paper, poly coated papers, white papers,…

3. Pulping Technology center: brown white tissues, cup making 200 TPD

4. Pelletizing the by-products

5. Producing energy: either electricity, bio-diesel or both.

No water discharge, no waste stream; ash ever every energy generation can still be used for soil nutriment (no organic) or road construction …

The base project has an attractive payout and funds the commercial proof of two competing technologies to provide an even higher return using the 300 TPD of fuel pellets as a feedstock. The two technologies to be funded are:

1. Pyrolysis to producer gas and diesel fuel that has been proven at pilot scare and smaller commercial scale.

2. Higher efficiency process that has been proven at a pilot scale to produce a higher return.

Frank Carlucci III – Fmr. Deputy Director of CIA

09/2010 : According to the April 24, 2012 Complaint for Violations of the Federal Securities Law, Virginia Securities Law, and Virginia Common Law, Jury Trial Demanded; U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Alexandria Division, Case No. 1:12CV451, Frank C. Carlucci III  v.  Michael S. Han & Envion Inc., regarding a ‘Plastics-to-Oil’ fraud scheme eerily similar to the fraud schemes of Abdul Latif Mahjoob / American Combustion Technologies Inc. / ACTI; Ron Van Den Heuvel / Green Box NA / Reclamation Technology Systems LLC / E.A.R.T.H.; Alliance GC / Alliance Construction & Design / P2O Technologies; Arland Clean Fuels / ACF Leasing / ACF Services / Generation Clean Fuels / Louis Stern / Eric Decator, et al.; and Oneida Seven Generations Corp. / OSGC & subsidiaries Oneida Energy Inc. and Green Bay Renewable Energy LLC:

20.  In and around September and October 2010, Mr. Han approached Mr. Carlucci for an additional $20,000,000 investment [on top of the $12,093,000 Carlucci had already invested from March 2004 through April 2010]. In connection with soliciting this additional $20,000,000 investment, Mr. Han made the following representations to Mr. Carlucci in a number of face-to-face meetings at Mr. Carlucci’s residence, which were often arranged via telephone calls and emails to Mr. Carlucci from Mr. Han:

a.  Envion had a ‘done deal with Gazprom,’ one of the world’s largest gas companies, pursuant to which Gazprom would invest millions in Envion in exchange for a ‘49% ownership interest in Envion.’ As part of the deal, Mr. Han represented that he would become the chief executive officer of Gazprom’s wholly owned waste disposal subsidiary that would fully utilize the technology;

b.  Envion was close to a ‘deal’ with Petrobas, a Brazilian energy company, which was comprised of two parts: (1) an off-take agreement, under which Envion would provide Envion Oil Generators to Petrobas; and (2) a joint venture, under which Petrobas would invest ‘substantial sums of money’ in Envion;

c.  Because a sizeable investment from Gazprom was a ‘done deal,’ Mr. Carlucci would get his investment back ‘in three weeks’;

d.  Envion had a ‘backlog of 2,000 orders’ for its Envion Oil Generators;

e.  The $20,000,000 would be used exclusively for two purposes: (i) for Envion to buy-out Mr. Han’s uncle (Uncle Ma) who was becoming anxious to realize an immediate return on his investment in Envion, and (ii) investment capital in and exclusively for the legitimate business purposes of Envion; and

f.  Mr. Han reasserted that Envion had the exclusive patent for the Envion Oil Generator technology.

21.  As Mr. Carlucci later came to find out, each of these representations was false and Mr. Han knew, or should have known, they were false at the time they were made.

22.  At the same time that Mr. Han solicited Mr. Carlucci’s $20,000,000 investment, Mr. Han reasserted that ‘Envion would be the best return Mr. Carlucci would receive on any investment,‘ possibly up to ’50 times’ the amount Mr. Carlucci had invested. To support this representation, Mr. Han had previously presented Mr. Carlucci with a projection of the return Mr. Carlucci would receive. In connection with Mr. Han’s solicitation of the $20,000,000 investment, Mr. Carlucci asked if the projection was still valid, and Mr. Han responded affirmatively, ‘Yes, it is.’ No cautionary language, qualifications, or conditions accompanied this projection. As it turned out, this was false and misleading in that there was no reasonable basis for such projection.

23.  In direct and reasonable reliance on Mr. Han’s representaton set forth in Paragraphs 20 and 22 above, Mr. Carlucci invested the additional $20,000,000 in Envion as evidenced by a convertible promissory note dated October 10, 2010 that acccrued interest at 8% annually and could be converted at any time by Mr. Carlucci into common stock of Envion – equity in the company.

24.  Around the same time that Mr. Carlucci made the additional $20,000,000 investment, and without his knowledge, Mr. Han:

a.  Closed Envion’s Washington D.C. headquarters and moved the company to West Palm Beach, Florida;

b.  Purchased a personal residence in Palm Beach, Florida valued at approximately $3,500,000 and, on information and belief, made substantial and costly renovations to that residence. Further, on information and belief, Mr. Han had claimed a Florida Homestead Exemption over this newly purchased residence;

c.  On information and belief, provided himself (Mr. Han) with a $5,000,000 annual salary for his employment with Envion that was not disclosed to Mr. Carlucci.

25. In the summer of 2011, Mr. Carluci’s prior investments in Envion were rolled into one convertible promissory note in the amount of $32,393,000. This convertible note, dated August 4, 2011, accrues interest at 5% annually and could be converted at any time by Mr. Carlucci into common stock of Envion – equity in the company.


10/07/10 : ONWI Kalihwisaks newspaper: Announcement of OSGC signing power purchase agreement with Wisconsin Public Service, Inc. [WPS, former employer of Marc Hess of MH Resources, International Energy Partners of Caribou, Maine & IEP Development], and that OSGC wanted to move the site of the incinerator project from the ONWI Reservation to Ashwaubenon, WI

After hearing community concerns about the project’s placement…

  

  • October 7, 2010 Letter to Oneida Business Committee from Yvonne Metivier regarding the BIA Loan Guarantee Program Regulations information and email from Phil Viles, Chief of the Division of Capital Investment, Office of Indian Energy & Economic Development, BIA, US Dept. of the Interior, clarifiying that should the loan for the OSGC Waste-to-Energy Pyrolysis Project go into default, 

BIA is subrogated to all rights of the lender under the loan agreement with the borrower, and must pursue collection efforts against the borrower and any co-maker and guarantor, as required by law.

So, if we [the BIA] paid money under our guarantee, we would step into the shoes of the lender and ‘pursue collection efforts against the borrower.’
