Meetings & minutes inaccessible to public at Durango School District 9-R Board of Education

3 Nov 2021 | Posted by Adam Howell. No Comments  

Meetings and minutes of the Durango School District 9-R Board of Education dating back to May of 2021 do not appear to be open to the public. The lack of public accessibility to board business is another social ill that’s caused by the response to COVID-19, but not caused by COVID-19 itself. A cursory glance at their live stream of the regular meetings shows board members and speakers wearing masks and their voices muffled; inaudible. In other words, the masks that the board members and…

27 Oct 2021 | Posted by Adam Howell. No Comments  

A lawsuit filed against Durango School District 9-R Board of Education and its election official seeks to force them to hold a special election following their illegal cancellation of an election for an abandoned Board of Directors seat, the petition said. For the petitioners, the problem arose when Andrea Parmenter, a former board member in District D, allegedly abandoned her residency in District D more than 90 days before the election without notifying the board. Colorado Revised Statute 22-31-129 (3) says “If the vacancy occurs…


Mainstream media has conflict of interest in COVID-19 vaccine reporting

26 Oct 2021 | Posted by Adam Howell. No Comments  

Mainstream media has a conflict of interest in their reporting on the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines based on the advertising revenues that they receive from Pfizer. Specifically, a conflict of interest is defined as “a situation in which regard for one duty leads to disregard of another, or might reasonably be expected to do so,” according to the Federal Reporter. A conflict of interest could be actual or potential, but in the case of corporate broadcast media we can at least see a potential conflict. When…

9 Oct 2021 | Posted by Adam Howell. No Comments  

Mountain biking enthusiast Kyle from the YouTube channel Kyle & April-Ride MTB took the Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 jibby jab. Now, he has pericarditis that keeps him from riding and living a normal life. Also, his heart rate goes from sixty beats a minute to a hundred just by standing up from the sitting position. This other condition is called POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome). Standing up makes him almost pass out, he said.

20 Sep 2021 | Posted by Adam Howell. No Comments  

A COVIDCheck COVID-19 rapid test and a COVID-19 PCR test were administered to my friend on the same visit. Alarmingly, one test came pack positive, and the other came back negative. At the same time, the test recipient did not have any symptoms of COVID-19 at the time of the inspection, they told me.

Serra Meyer, a nurse at Mercy Regional Medical Center, gave some highly inaccurate information about the occupancy of the intensive care unit at Mercy Medical Center during a feedback session with the Durango School District 9-R on August 3, 2021. Later that same month, the school district hired her on as a “Health Services Provider” for Riverview Elementary.

10 Aug 2021 | Posted by Adam Howell. No Comments  

Vaccination would be required in order to attend a Parks and Recreation Advisory Board meeting under an unwritten policy based on feelings that’s being championed by several board members. The originally scheduled August 11th meeting was intended to be the first in-person meeting since since the COVID-19 mandates were lifted. After I refused to disclose my vaccination status, city staff changed it to a virtual Zoom meeting two days beforehand. Parks and Recreation Board Chair Anthony Savastano took the lead on requesting the private medical…

By far the most contentious policies were those of face masking and COVID vaccinations. Should they be required? After the new superintendent Dr. Karen Cheser introduced herself, the first speaker was a teacher from 9R.

22 Jun 2021 | Posted by Adam Howell. No Comments  

A facial covering requirement alarmingly precludes the encouragement of exercise and sunlight exposure in a written plan of Durango School District 9-R for students and staff. Specifically, Durango School District 9-R appears to have adopted a three-tiered COVID-19 risk mitigation plan with the intention of safely and effectively managing in-person learning for all students. As a means for ensuring the health and safety of District 9-R students and staff one of the basic requirements for meeting this goal is to require students to wear a…

Kary Mullis vs Fauci–the documentary. Kary Mullis explains in this video why the PCR Test that he invented was not designed to test for a virus. The misuse of PCR was the claim that it was meaningful, Mullis said about its ability to find anything in anybody. Fauci’s previous claim that HIV was causing AIDS was based on PCR testing, and it turned out to be wrong, according to Mullis.
