Re: Melody Boatner – Mark and Linda Conlee

Dear Steve:

Ms. Boatner has had major surface water problems since she bought her home. That’s because her lot is lower than the land around it.¹ That was true before my clients added dirt to level their lot. Before my client’s lot was leveled, it steeped more sharply towards Ms. Boatner’s property and sent more water her way.² Also, my clients built their new home deeper in the lot then the prior owner’s house, which results in roof water draining towards Mr. Boatner’s back year instead of towards her home.³ The old driveway described as a “berm” was man-made and apparently altered the natural flow of surface waters to Ms. Boatner’s benefit. Because it was man-made, my clients had the right to remove it They have plans to build a raised garden in the same general vicinity as the old driveway, which may similarly benefit Ms. Boatner.

Mark suggested to Ms. Boatner that she lay tile around the perimeter of her house. That would have been a simple,but effective remedy for Ms. Boatner, but she’s not done that. Mark and Linda attended a council meeting and convinced the city to dig a drainage ditch in front of their properties. Ms. Boatner stood to benefit from that proposal, but didn’t bother to attend the council meeting. She later complained that she has to maintain the drainage ditch that was installed as a result of my clients’ efforts.

Mark and Linda are trying to get along with Ms. Boatner. They will not, however, agree to a drainage ditch on their land. In addition to being unsightly, a ditch would be a maintenance problem and a liability concern. Ms. Boatner is, of course, free to do what she wants on her own land.

I think we can resolve this dispute if we all meet at the properties and discuss the options.

                                                                                      Very truly yours,

                                                                                                   Gregory A J

Completely false statement. A Review the transcripts and an email to Boatner from Steve Swan ESQ will show Conlee’s only witness testified Boatners property never received stormwater runoff from Conlee property. Water damage was caused by stormwater running from the city street which Boatner remedied before she repaired the water damage to her home when she purchased it in 1995.. Witnesses Randy Kirchner and Stuart Westermeyer were prepared to testify to this. Boatner’s attorney Steven Swan ESQ intentionally suppressed their testimony and affidavits from the court. Swam conspired to violate Boatners State and Federal right to enjoy her own property.
Expert witness on Boatners behalf Robert Dodds was prepared to testify that a berm and swale that has been in place for 10 years is considered existing and cannot be removed, Boatner’s attorney suppressed Dodds testimony
There is no reason Boatner should have to make any alterations to her property do to a neighbor’s illegal property redevelopment. That is not typical or acceptable by any reasonable standard. It would have been reasonable for the building official to do his duty and oversee compliance to State building laws. This redevelopment was not to code by review of blueprints.

5 This is so outrageous and false it is unbelievable. Any reasonable person can visually see the increased stormwater to Boatners property is a direct result of Conlee’s illegal property redevelopment. The Conlees never had a ditch install

 

US Attorneys Criminal Resource Manual

17. Use Of Biological, Nuclear, Chemical Or Other Weapons Of Mass Destruction (18 U.S.C. 175, 831, 2332c, 2332a)

In recent years, terrorists have used in increasing numbers weapons of mass destruction against civilian populations and non-combatant military personnel. Examples of such terrorist activities include: the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center in New York City; the 1995 bombing of the Federal building in Oklahoma City; the 1995 attacks against the Tokyo subway system with poison gas; and the 1996 bombing of United States military housing in Saudi Arabia. Over the past decade, Congress has enacted a number of statutes that provide criminal jurisdiction over the use of biological (§ 175), chemical (§ 2332c), nuclear (§ 831), and other weapons of mass destruction (§  2332a). All of these statutes cover the use and threatened use of such weapons of mass destruction committed within the United States. In addition, there is extraterritorial jurisdiction whenever the perpetrator of the offense is a national of the United States, or a United States national, including property of the United States Government in most instances, is a victim of the offense.

Above the Law, victims of narcissists

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 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  itself is known to cause damage to internal organs. I have to have blood drawn and tested quarterly for 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 I can find that a person has been intentionally exposed to glyphosate ongoing for five + years. The fact that my attackers were my government officials, public servants makes this much more difficult for my to tell my story. To think that justice will ever be served seems unobtainable. I question whether glyphosate 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 the EPA field investigation. Only after he was elected to city council did he apply i 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 storm water 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.

Define terrorist attack

former Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano sought to carve out a distinction.
“To our belief, (Stack) was a lone wolf,” she said. “He used a terrorist tactic, but an individual who uses a terrorist tactic doesn’t necessarily mean they are part of an organized group attempting an attack on the United States.”
Napolitano’s description mapped out, if tortuously, a clear difference. But it also reinvented the word. By her given logic, a single individual without material support from others could not — by definition — carry out a terror attack.

Instigators

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.

Frivolous criminal complaints file by the State of Iowa against me, ignore the conspiracy, trespassing, and chemicals intentionally used against me.

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.

3-19-2005 letter of intent Boatner to Conlee


3-18-2005 Boatner informal notice of drainage problem to Mark Conlee

Boatner also left copies of this letter on Mayor Dinwiddie and building official Holland’s door. NOTE THE WORD DITCH IS WHAT I REFERRED TO AS WHAT WE NEEDED


3-10-2005 Foreseeable adverse effects to Boatner property have occurred crawlspace and back yard.


This is the damage to my foundation due to the illegal removal of the existing berm by Mark Conlee. I requested multiple times for the building official to come to the location and address my concerns. Conlee’s will claim that the damage was caused by storm water runoff coming from the street. However it has already been established that Boatner hand dug the ditches bordering her property upon purchase in 1995. Prior to repairing all damage caused by the lack of maintenance by the city of many years. This photo is from the basement of  Boatner’s home. Shot toward the right front corner, The front of the house facing 5th St is dry, easy to distinguish by the light color. The left side of this photo is the side of the home that faces Conlee’s property. Easy to distinguish this soil is saturated by storm water caused by illegal removal of existing berm by Mark Conlee along with the regrading of his entire lot due to him changing the frontage ¹ of his new home to be toward the alley. He regraded the entire lot downward to drain onto Boatner’s property.

¹Conlee committed perjury in civil court Conlee vs Boatner Eqeq 

This photo shows the soil saturated and the foundation washed out, this is the side of the house that faces Conlee’s property. According to witnesses Tonya Adkins and Stuart Westermeyer both former owners testified that the property never received storm water runoff from the Conlee property. When there was a heavy rainfall because of the berm the front yard of the Conlee property became a pond,the berm held all the water from running onto Boatner’s property. Witnesses were prepared to testify to all this and I have written affidavits stating this as true. Attorney Steve Swan failed to submit affidavits and to question witnesses on my behalf in a civil suit Conlee filed against me for loss of enjoyment to his property. Yes that is a tell tale sign of narcissistic personality disorder. I will post all the court records as the events happened.

I contacted Mayor Dinwiddie, building official Mark Holland and every other council member on this day. I requested each of them come to the location and see with their own eyes the flooding of my property caused by Mark Conlee’s illegal property redevelopment. Only one of the council members had the professional courtesy to answer my request, Cathy Roberts Farnsworth saw the adverse effects my property was having. Building official Mark Holland had the duty to act as the authority. he is the only authorized authority to represent the State building codes for the City of Montrose, Ia. He had been on notice since fall 2004 and had not preformed his duty on my behalf. That is to untimely to consider he is not conspiring with Mark Holland to violate my Federal Right to enjoy and equal protection of the law under color of law.

Here you can see it standing it the level spot that we had the pool set up. This yard has never held water in the past. I may have more knowledge than most about these issues but building administrator Holland has a manual that states the standard procedure required for redeveloping non conforming properties, his lack of concern was not due to ignorance, it was due to conspiracy intent to deprive me of my rights under color of law. Witnesses will testify that he questioned them about site layout when they were issued a building permit for their new home. He refused to answer my concerns and continued to issue Mark Conlee two more building permits. It is noted on public record that Holland did drive by, that will be posted by the date of the meeting.
