"WoosterWater Con Artists, Inc." (what would be a very appropriate name for the current day widespread real estate scam* which was first conceived in 1995/1996) and its "CEO" District 5 multi-term County Commissioner Bonnie Thomson Carter (who first came into government power in 1997), have been reaffirmed by a political ally, fellow con artist, and blab Penny Cummings, to be the one ensuring multiple local governments have historically "for many, many years" been fully engaged in this real estate scam.
President Tanneron Bay Condo Association Penny Cummings incriminates not only herself but also Grant Township, Lake County, and Fox Lake Officials while at Village of Fox Lake 2/14/2006 submitting full, very clear knowledge these government officials have been the driving force to ensure a known, falsified and invalid covenants document** - forged with an attorney's and many lake owners' names, addresses, etc. [continued below]....
..... on it - into subdivided, lake-access property developments in Lake County.
Fox Lake Minutes 2/14/2006: "Allot of the people who have spoken up in opposition of the ordinance (on Wooster Lake) have spoken up on the basis that they don't feel that government should be involved in this issue.
(True! The gov't never should have
been involved in this private dispute!) I am here to say that government has been involved in protecting Wooster Lake for many, many years. If we take the history all the way back to Tanneron Bay when it was developed, without the involvement of Grant Township and Lake County, Tanneron Bay may not likely have had to attach the Wooster Lake Covenants
(sp. corrected) to its By-Laws and Declarations. We thank Grant Township and Lake County for getting involved to do that. During the development of Holiday Park, Fox Lake structured the annexation agreement to ensure that the Wooster Lake Covenants
(sp. corrected) would be attached to the Holiday Park Declarations and By-Laws, therefore continuing protection of the lake."
- Penny Cummings
Now compare that to what Penny Cummings wrote almost a year earlier about the invalidity of this covenants document in an obtained email sent to Thaddeus Kochanny, TB board members, and Bonnie Thomson Carter
on 5/19/2005: Thad, Thank you very much for taking the time to investigate the history
(and confirming with the attorney typed on its cover the invalidity of) the WLCCA by-laws and covenants. I think many of us knew that the covenants were never filled with any governing body....."
- Penny Cummings, TB President
Ms. Cummings was responding to Mr. Kochanny's 5/19/2005 email to Bonnie Thomson Carter
, Penny Cummings, and other Tanneron Bay leaders, where Mr. Kochanny wrote: "Mr. Nakon is the Wauconda lawyer who drafted "Wooster Lake Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions". We spoke on the phone this afternoon and I have news to share with you. Mr. Nakon said that years ago, he drafted an outline for then president Robert Faber
(and then vice president Geraldine Stimpson) to use in making a final covenant and by-laws. This final document was never finshed AND approved by all the lake bottom owners of that time. All the argument now, about its meanings, is worthless because the document has no legal standing. Furthermore, Mr. Nakon said that under present Illinois law every lake bottom owner must agree to adopt covenants/by-laws BEFORE they are recorded with the Secretary of State. We know this was never done. If a single owner says "no", the adoption of any covenant is not possible. In today's climate it will never happen. Mr. Nakon said that because the Wooster Lake Conservation and Control Association has no legal basis to exist, baring 100% agreement to adopt a new covenant and by-laws, nothing the association does has any legal effect."
- Thaddeus Kochanny, TB resident and WLCCA Director
Further, the voluntary WLCCA was resurrected from the dead in November 1994 by Robert Faber and Geraldine Stimpson, longtime friend and former neighbor of Bonnie Thomson Carter on Wooster Lake. It was revealed it was resurrected largely to commit fraud at these incoming, subdivided developments with lake-access. On January 8, 1995, with Gerry Stimpson running the WLCCA meeting, much of the meeting is about the Attorney General filing a lawsuit and property lien against the then-owner of what would be developed into Tanneron Bay. Then recorded: "The rest of the meeting was spent in general discussion about rules we want to govern our lake. We need to get these done in order to present them to Lake County Zoning or Real Estate Agents so they may be included in the covenants of any developer or land owner selling....."
These are their own words!!!!!
On Sep 15, 1995, Geraldine Stimpson did exactly what they had schemed and began the distribution of the never-finalized, never-agreed-to-by-lake-owners, forged-with-an-attorney's-name, forged-with-lake-owners'-and-PINS WLCCA covenants document to be inserted into subdivided, lake-access properties Tanneron Bay by-laws and later Holiday Park Declarations, ultimately recorded at Lake County in January 2003 at the direction of Howard Teegan and the Fox Lake Village Board with ordinance 2001-52 also recorded at Lake County Records. "Success!" Real Estate Agents and Developers sold the 100's of these subdivided, lake-access properties under these false pretenses for many, many years!
All done as schemed by "WoosterWater Con Artists, Inc."
with "CEO" Bonnie Thomson Carter, "Director of Ethics" Geraldine Stimpson, "Public Relations Director" Penny Cummings, "Legal Beagle" Howard Teegan of Fox Lake, "Legal Beagle Wanna-Be" Mark Pfister, "Fraud Investigator" Thaddeus Kochanny, "Sargeant of Arms" Kenneth Calvert
and "Silent Partner" Jack Kiesgen, Hwy Commissioner of Grant Township. OBEY BONNIE'S COVENANTS SHE HAS FORGED AND DISTRIBUTED AT DEVELOPMENTS AROUND WOOSTER LAKE AND THE "MANY, MANY YEARS" OF GOV'T-FACILITATED FRAUD ! OR ELSE !
