Well I cannot sleep, my family member was so overcome with enjoyment they could not contain the pleasure they were feeling on Monday evening, so pleased with them self that they had such an influence in convincing people from my hometown that I was “crazy” during the darkest days of my life when I was suffering from the severe skin condition and blindness that resulted from the neighbor using the chemicals to eliminate me from my property. They felt they needed to share it with me. I already knew this family member was making those statements, but I really considered the source, knowing anything stated was hearsay. I had not associated with them since 1995. I told them I was happy for them to find so much pleasure in their actions. I don’t know what they were expecting my reaction to be. I am still utilizing any resource available. We do have a new County attorney and Sheriff that took the positions when the former ones retired, the old County Attorney has had the job as long as I can remember, when I was a teenager. There was never anyone who ran against him. So he was absolutely right when he told me he would decide who gets prosecuted in Lee County, Ia. I was charged with criminal offenses on 2 or 3 times by him. for laws that do not exist. Two times the complaint stated “the neighbor “said” I drove past his house real slow and gave him the middle finger. The second was the same except it was edited to say the neighbor is tired of this happening all the time. That bumped the charge up to harassment. I never even got in the courtroom on either of them. The neighbor did not show up, he was vacationing in Fla. I have never even heard of this kind of crap happening to anyone else anywhere. I guess hearsay is evidence in Lee County, Ia. lol. I can only suppose my brother felt he was not being recognized for his contribution to assist in destroying my pursuit of happiness. So clearly the crap just gets deeper think I have it right to the top of my ears by now. Thinking about contacting a US Marshall. I don’t know if it will help, I know they have authority to arrest everyone, including judges and government officials. I made contact with a SA at the local FBI division, I got this guy just because he happened to answer the phone when I called sitting in their parking lot. I was determined someone of authority was going to review the documented evidence I have. Drove all that way, he advised me it was to late in the afternoon for anyone to review my collection, I told him I would stay the night and be at the office first thing in the a.m. He advised me he doubted I would be assisted the next day due to it being Columbus Day. I came back home and looked him up, he is a hate crime expert, I need constitutional rights, terrorism and public corruption expert. I sent him a few things by email. Enough that anyone knowledgeable in property law would recognize immediately what is allowed to be done in redeveloping a legally nonconforming property. Then the same day we were going to make arrangement for me to meet with him so he could review the evidence I get a letter from FBI Washington, stating the Cedar Rapids agent found no violation of Federal Law, I have received two letters now from Washington DC, signed by assistant deputy director JC Hacker. I when to their website, there is a list of staff including assistant deputy directors. Guess what, J.C. Hacker is not listed. Hmmm of course I doubt anything is legit at this time so I am thinking these letters are fraudulent, Ok well I am going to lay down again, hope to get some shut eye, have meds I can take now to help. Never needed meds for much of anything before nightmare on 5th St. To answer you question I am doing great, really. thanks for asking.

Did you know that occupying on private land protected by Property rights is considered a trespass? The law will find you guilty and can send you away for a couple of months or pay some hefty fee you’ll probably regret. So to avoid such a debacle, here are some facts about property rights and trespassing
A case that started with a simple nuisance drainage issue, it ended up with the neighbor using chemicals with intent to cause me serious injury. He and the local officials had no regard to the building codes or requirements pertaining to legally nonconforming property redevelopment. There was not one thing regarding this redevelopment that was compliant with the State building code or State drainage laws. When he realized he could not get his new redevelopment recorded on the county plat map that he decided the remedy was to eliminate me and acquire my property. This will give you an idea of the offenses that have been committed against me. These are clear violations of Federal Law. Equal protection, private property right, the 14th amendment to name a few.
Are you diagnosed with any injury or condition as a result of this behavior or otherwise?
Yes, the skin condition that resulted in the chemical exposure is chronic, the only way I can keep it reasonably under control is by taking the medication methotrexate. Methotrexate in itself is known to cause damage to internal organs. I have to have blood drawn and tested on a regular basis to monitor the amounts in my system are considered as “safe”. My body specifically my arms are covered in scars. I must avoid the sun due to the methotrexate Initially I was required to travel to the University of Iowa hospital weekly, slowly it has now become every six months, I have an appointment tomorrow in fact. This Dr. literally saved my life. There is no other case that a person has been intentionally exposed to glyphosate ongoing for five + years. I question whether that is the only chemical that was unlawfully applied to my property along the common boundary. The attacker began unlawfully applying chemicals to my property the year prior to when he applied it on the city easement along lot #1 of my property. He is well connected with the local agricultural supply corp. It was only when he applied it to the city easement when a neighbor two properties down from me reported chemicals to the EPA. Where he applied it happened to be the point source of a large portion of the city’s drainage ditches. When he applied it and it rained it naturally ran downstream into a backwater slough that feeds directly into the Mississippi River. A neighbor notified the EPA when all living plant life on her property was killed by the chemicals. This man by this time had suspiciously been elected to the city council. He was misrepresenting his authority to be that of an employee of the street dept, which he had no authority nor did the city’s insurance cover him in acting as an employee of the city. I continue to suffer emotional distress, I was distraught that I had no protection of the law to file a trespassing complaint against this man. This man sued me because I (within my rights) put up a privacy curtain his case was dismissed. The judge’s order cited my “right to enjoy my property”. I felt a sense of relief believing this meant that he would not apply chemicals to my property again. I was soon after charged by the State on this man’s behalf for a misdemeanor act. The citation stated “Mark Conlee said Melody Boatner drove by his house and gave him the middle finger”. A few days later I received another citation, this one stated “Mark Conlee said Melody Boatner drove by his house and gave him the middle finger, he is tired of this continuing to happen.” The additional wording bumped the charge up to harassment. The County Attorney sent Lee County Deputy David Hunold to my house, according to Hunold, the County Attorney was concerned there may be a conflict of interest. We sat for over an hour, I showed him documented evidence that Conlee lied in court, knowingly make false statements, made false police reports and his admission in court documents that he did apply chemicals to my property. He got up to leave and I said “wait a minute, I want to file trespassing complaint against Conlee”. Deputy Hunold advised me that he was only there to investigate the complaint regarding me giving him the finger. There is no law against giving someone the finger, I admitted I did one time. That is the only interaction I ever had with this man aside from telling him years earlier not to apply anything to my property, not to enter my property. I have the date and photo evidence. Conlee violated the court order in the civil case he filed against me. He approached me, accompanied by the Chief of Police, he advised me that he was going to move the railroad ties that I had placed down the common boundary to divert the significantly increased stormwater runoff from his illegal property redevelopment. I ask the Police Chief, what are you doing here? He advised me that he was acting as a witness that Conlee told me in advance that he was going to move the railroad ties. This is the same police chief that the day I told Conlee not to apply anything to my property, because I felt whatever he had been unlawfully applying was causing me medical problems. I followed up directly with the Police chief requesting an incident report. I finally received an incident report sixteen months later. By that time my body was eaten up. I was unable to function at all, to simply wear clothes was unbearable. I continue to have eruptions to my skin but is controllable with ointment provided by prescription from my dermatologist in Iowa City. I have had many incidents caused by bad interactions with medications that have been given in an attempt to offer some relief to the severe skin condition. I was overdosed on IV steroids by the Dr on duty at the Ft Madison Community Hosp. resulting in hallucinations resulting in being hospitalized in ICU for three days. There are many instances similar to what I have just explained, I have everything documented.
The problem for me to date has been the existing conflict of interest between these local officials. Anyone with the authority to protect my rights and prosecute criminal offenses have clearly conspired to cover up, violate Federal law pertaining to private property, equal protection and several of the Constitutional Amendments. The evidence is much clearer than my ability to tell this story. Photos and court documents do not lie. This is not supposed to happen in the USA. This is illegal, ignorance of the law is no excuse. This has never happened to another citizen.
My father was employed as the Street Commissioner of a neighboring town. I was aware of the violations that were being committed against me as they were happening. I reported these crimes to the proper authority as they occurred. I had a successful business that I operated from this property. A home the biggest investment a person make in their lifetime. Mine was taken because my neighbor having all the right people holding the needed government position was allowed to violated all laws concerning redevelopment of legally nonconforming property. Everyone except the County Recorder, he couldn’t get past having to have this illegal redevelopment recorded on the county plat map.
Within the past few weeks the people of Lee County, Ia have gotten a new Sheriff and a new County Attorney. I thought I would contact both of them and see if they were interested in pursuing criminal actions against the former local officials who have without a doubt committed crimes against me.
First I telephoned the new County Attorney, he advised me that he would take action against criminals, he did require a complaint be given to him by the sheriff though. I am curious why former Lee County, Ia Attorney Michael Short never requested this. Short told me straight up he would decide who gets prosecuted in Lee County. He did decide, he refused to file a complaint against criminals with evidence that was unquestionable. He did file complaints against innocent people being charged with fabricated laws. He was unsuccessful at getting convictions for these imaginary violations of fabricated laws.
Anyway, my thoughts that the new sheriff would ever implicate the former Law Enforcement officer that he stated in his first press release after being elected were pretty clear to me not going to happen. I talked to him and he told me he would help me receive justice. But I just never considered that he would be true to his word. The fact that in the press release he praises the former Lee County Detective that was so heavily involved in the illegal actions against me as being the major factor as to why he chose law enforcement as a career is telling in itself. The thin blue line does not get crossed, even though they claim they will unhold the law. Not reasonable in my mind. The fact that he made this former detective’s son his right hand man, also makes me question his loyalty. Is he willing to put his mentor on the chopping block as his duty to protect and serve the people. I doubt that.
The discussions we did have were in reference to him giving me the name of a Federal agent. That I admit he did stay true to his word and do. He also advised me that he informed the city of Montrose clerk that there was an investigation into public corruption. I asked “what did she say?”. He told me she said she didn’t know what he was talking about.
Within days the City of Montrose website was taken down, the clerk was the administrator. She had been vigilant at keeping the public record of the city council meeting minutes up to date, beginning in Jan. 2005. I had noticed that three different months had been removed, those minutes being the ones that contained the record of the Mayor and council implicating themselves by statements they made at the meetings. I had the copies of those meeting minutes any how.
I believe the fact that the city clerk took down the website only after being advised there was an investigation is just the latest action that supports the evidence that a conspiracy against my rights has occurred, I think this extends statute of limitations is the only positive result from this action in her attempt to cover up the evidence, no worries though I have every month of city council meeting minutes downloaded and saved. So I may owe the new Sheriff a thank you for his assistance.
I do not feel comfortable meeting with the new sheriff. I have little trust in the local authorities when it comes to upholding the law. I have also heard rumor that the new right hand man is a little aggressive and I do not want any interaction with him. He is going to defend his family to the best of his power. That is an honorable character trait, if it weren’t for the fact that his family members committed unprecedented criminal offenses.
The facts of this case in a brief summary is that a neighbor purchased the legally nonconforming lot adjoining mine. He purchased this lot from the Mayor. He began redeveloping it the following year by trucking in enough fill dirt to elevate the lot up to 10′ higher, constructed a two story nonconforming garage with roof surface altered to allow stormwater runoff to be diverted directly onto my property. He re-graded the fill dirt from the alley down to my property, resulting in diverting all stormwater runoff from his new redevelopment. The building permit issued for this structure is illegal mainly because is states this entire structure was started and finished in only 4 days. He also did not install drain tile around the slab or along the common boundary to carry stormwater to the city drainage ditch. I was advised he intended to build a living quarter in the upper level of this garage when I mentioned my concern about foreseeable adverse effects to my property.
The following year after a suspicious fire destroyed the existing double wide mobile home, he changed the plan. He was issued an illegal building permit for a new home. He again built a nonconforming structure, altered the roof surface and trucked in fill dirt all of which were made to intentionally divert stormwater from the entire lot onto my property. He illegally removed and existing berm, conflicting with a statement made under oath. He changed the frontage of the new home to be the alley. This to conflicts with a statement he made under oath. He and the city raised the alley to act as if it were his private city street, higher that the private property abutting it. The raising of the alley is in conflict with the standard procedure of an alley to be lower that the property adjoining it to take stormwater from a backyard and carry it to the city drainage ditch. There are many inconsistencies and conflicting statements implicating himself in perjury in the civil case he filed against me for loss of enjoyment of his property. The case was dismissed. At no time did the building official address my concerns, he did continue to issue illegal building permits to this neighbor however.
He then used his connections to be elected to city council. Specifically the city clerk. In that position he attempted to cause me financial harm, however all cases against me were dismissed, only costing the taxpayers of the city money. One case was for the same complaint the same as the civil case he filed against me, it was dismissed with a note at the bottom from the judge questioning the purpose of the case against me by the city. He held his position as city council member for the intent of continuing to harass me. He made false police reports against me. He initiated nuisance weed ordinances with the intent to cause me physical harm. He began applying toxic chemicals to my property in early 2005. I followed all standard procedures provided for me to remedy the nuisance drainage issue his property redevelopment causing adverse effects and loss of value to my property. The city building official refused to follow standard procedure to remedy the situation. The chemicals had severe effects to my physical health. I suffered severe pain as a result of not being able to get equal protection of the law in my requests for them to issue a trespassing complaint on my behalf. I had no protection of the law and the city level or the county level, in fact certain law enforcement officers misrepresented their authority and jurisdiction to act on this neighbors behalf. Ethical violation of not recognizing a conflict of interest existed at every local level, those special relationships were used for the benefit on this neighbor. He violated the civil court ruling by physically altering the railroad ties I had placed on my property to divert stormwater toward the city drainage ditch, he was assisted by Chief of Police Brent Shipman.
The chemicals unlawfully applied to my property continued for the following five years. My right to enjoy my own property as cited in the civil court ruling was violated due to the illegal application of the chemicals. These chemicals caused my condition to deteriorate to the degree that I believe they were going to be the cause of my death. He would not stop. No law enforcement officer intended to make him stop the criminal act. The Lee County Attorney advised me that “he would decide who gets prosecuted in Lee County.” He proceeded to file criminal complaints against me on my neighbors behalf. All were dismissed due to the fabrication of a law itself.
This neighbor had all the right people in all the right positions that he was aided and abetted causing me serious injury. When he discovered he could not get his illegal property redevelopment recorded on the county plat map is when he began using the chemicals as a weapon against me. He motive was to acquire my property. He could never get his illegal property redevelopment recorded on the county plat map without the addition of my property to his lot. I was forced to flee to escape the chemicals that were killing me. I fled from my home, business, property and the chemicals cost me my health. There are no words to express being violated of my right to this degree. I did survive only due to one Dr. from the University of Iowa hospital. However the medication I must take to control the severe skin condition will more likely than not cause damage to my internal organs. The damages include pain and suffering, along with the severe skin condition I lost my eyesight for over 7 years. I was unable to read, recognize people and had no business driving. My successful upholstery service that I operated out of my shop on my property and future income from that business. All lost income that will affect the amount of SS I received had I been allowed to stay at my property till retirement as I had planned for myself. This is unprecedented in that there is no other case according to the EPA field investigator in which a neighbor has been allowed to used chemicals on a neighbor’s property. There are laws in place to prevent this type of thing from happening.
After being told by Mayor Dinwiddie that this was a private issue I went to City Hall. I got copies of the building permits on file for Mark Conlees new garage and his new home. This one for his new home.

Conlee sues Boatner for installing privacy curtain. Boatner was well within her legal rights to install a privacy curtain. The fact that he is and has been routinely unlawfully trespassing by applying toxic chemicals to her property having been told not to. He sues her for using her property as she chose to assuring no encroachment on Conlee’s property indicates Conlee has a personality disorder. Continue reading
Boatner followed standard procedure provided for all citizens to remedy issues caused by a neighbor’s property redevelopment. This property is legally nonconforming. The new neighbor purchased the lot from the Mayor of the City. City building official Mark Holland admitted he did not intend to do his duty and follow standard procedures to address and remedy the situation. Boatner contacted State Representative Phil Wise. Having explained the situation to Mr. Wise he showed the professional courtesy to contact City Hall and have Boatner put on the agenda so she could direct her questions to Council member/Building official Mark Holland in regards to the building permits issued for Mark Conlees property redevelopment. Having Contacted the Mayor and city clerk previously, she was always told to contact the building official. Again she was denied the opportunity to point out the fact that Conlee’s property is a legally nonconforming property and Iowa building code restricts the size of structures to be no large that the existing structures and they must comply with current building codes. These nonconforming structures are much larger that the existing double-wide mobile home and single car garage. Having reviewed the blueprints and following standard procedure Mark Holland would have never legally been able to issue building permits for these nonconforming structures. Holland was absent from this meeting. Based on the record of attendance at these meetings one may consider his absence was intentional. He was aware that Boatner was on the agenda for the purpose of getting answers to her questions concerning how these illegal redevelopment were approved, and the foreseeable nuisance drainage issue caused by the redevelopment had not been addressed and remedied.Conlee was unable to get the illegal redevelopment recorded on the County plat map. That is when he determined I was going to be eliminated. He had to have my property to get his illegal redevelopment recorded on the County plat map. He chose to use toxic chemicals to eliminate me. He applied chemicals to my property as if it were a normal part of his routine yard maintenance. My Federal 1st Amendment right was violated by the chief of police and the County attorney. I was literally begging County attorney Mike Short to protect my rights. I knew the chemicals were causing my death. Many people knew I was dying. They just did not care. They refused to file a trespassing complaint on my behalf. Their acts were blatant and intentional. State Representative Phil Wise retired soon after I contacted him. Since Jerry Kearns has been elected to State Rep. I have contacted him multiple times. He has made no comment. I want to know who he is representing. He is not representing me. He is not representing the State law. That only leave Mark Conlee’s best interest to be what he is representing.
Family member could not contain the excitement any longer that they had such influence in convincing the locals of Montrose, Iowa that I am crazy. I am about to burst with the joy of what hearsay can do to a normal person’s life, actually I think many others would have went off on the man long time ago. Karma got one by the ass at this time. I was always aware of the bullshit being said about me, to bad there are more victims than just I. Some people do not think about the domino effect of their actions. so sad. Narcissists and Psychopaths have no problem destroying your life. Well done Mark Conlee and city of Montrose, along with Lee County, Iowa government officials.
I am not a doctor, but this was more than an allergic reaction CLICK LINK BELOW
Frivolous criminal complaints file by the State of Iowa against me, ignore the conspiracy, trespassing, and chemicals intentionally used against me.I don’t know Trump’s position on Glyphosate the chemical used in Roundup by Monsanto. This was unlawfully applied to my property with intent to cause me physical harm. Ongoing for 5 years I pleaded with the local law enforcement and the Lee County attorney to stop this, they refused. The structures are illegal structures were built on are legally nonconforming. The building permits are illegal. The city clerk has committed numerous crimes of fraud with intent to cause me financial harm. The Police Chief refused to approach this man advising the he did not want to make him mad. The Mayor was the seller of the property, the building administrator refused his DUTY to address my concerns regarding the nuisance drainage the illegal redevelopment caused me. The motive was this man decided he needed to eliminate me when he discovered he could not get his illegal redevelopment recorded on the County plat map. I am angry that I actually expected the law to intervene, instead of invoking my 2nd amendment rights. This man did not care if the chemicals caused my death, which I believe was my faith. I want answers to some simple questions, I attempted to address the CIty Council multiple times only to be denied my right to free speech, My character was defamed publicly by several of the local authorities attempting to convince the community that I was associated with illegal drug activity. The defamation began with the Detective for Lee County Sheriff’s dept. who also without any jurisdiction misrepresented his authority to be that of the City building administrator, not to mention the the detective was the brother of this new neighbor. Lee County attorney claims he sent an officer down to investigate a complaint filed against me on this neighbor’s behalf, actually one of two complaints alleging that I drove by his house and gave him the finger, There is no law against giving anyone the finger, Lee County attorney advised me that he would decide who gets prosecuted in Lee County and files a criminal complaint as frivolous as giving someone the finger the evidence supporting this was “he said”. I have documented evidence that chemicals have been unlawfully applied to my property, and the City clerk committed multiple criminal offenses, They get commended for their crimes I am forced to flee my home, business and property that I bought in 1995 renovated and had paid off free in clear in 2000. I am going to make one more call to the Federal authorities as obviously my Constitutional Rights to equal protection of the law, enjoyment of property in contempt of a civil court ruling have been violated. Due process of the law and attempt to violate my 2nd amendment rights have occurred. If I get no positive results I will take this into my own hands. I am not going to be a victim of a case that is this complex and unprecedented by any means. This was adult bullying to say the least, I held my own in defending my property against the significant amount of storm water that was intentionally diverted to my property but I had no defense against chemical weapons used with no other purpose than to cause me serious injury. I am not concerned who the authority is, somebody needs to step up and take responsibility of this case. It’s not my duty to oversee property redevelopment in my City in the first place. This is the liability of the City of Montrose, and Lee County, Iowa. The acts violated my Federal Constitutional Rights.
After being told by Mayor Dinwiddie that this was a private issue I went to City Hall. I got copies of the building permits on file for Mark Conlees new garage and his new home. This one for his new home immediately caught my attention.
