For those of
you who still aren't
convinced that Jim
and Bonnie Frith are
still running the
Association, here is
all of the evidence
To begin, Vinissa Looman represents the Friths, selling and renting properties and collecting money from tenants while armed with a handgun. Bill Looman has a Power of Attorney to represent Jim Frith in all matters pertaining to his Beaver Run properties. Bill Looman also has a Power of Attorney giving him Jim Frith's proxy votes for the Beaver Run Landowners Association.
last, consider the
taken from the
Georgia Secretary of
State web site:
at next page below
Here's where this gets interesting.
Principal Place of Business:
555 Colonel Park Dr.
This is the same exact address as over a dozen other corporations registered in Georgia by James L. Frith, the developer of Beaver Run Subdivision
Hmmm. Registered Agent: Briskin & Associates, L.C.
WOW, this is the same Registered Agent listed on other James L. Frith corporations.
So, who is the organizer of U.S. Crane?
drum roll please......
Well I'll be darned if it isn't James L. Frith himself. But, then, there are 2 more pages to this document, surely Bill Looman is listed somewhere.
Scroll on down to the next page and see...
Nothing here except the Principal Mailing Address for U.S. Crane:
555 Colonel Park Dr.
which is Jim Frith's business address.
So, this is 2006, how about 2012. See the next page down
here we are,
Hmmm. Same address on Colonial Park Dr.
Authorized Signature, Well, I'll be damned, Tracy Bagwill, a longtime employee of, guess who...drum roll here...James L. Frith.
Still no mention of anyone named Looman. So, who does own U.S. Crane, LLC? Papers filed with the Georgia Secretary of State suggest, James L. Frith.
If you've been to any of the annual association meetings for the past 2 years you know that Bill Looman dominates not only the meetings, but the elections as well. Bill and his wife both work for Jim Frith, and don't forget the association attorney, Robert Monroe is Jim Frith's attorney.
Who do you think controls the BRLOA? Who do you think controls everything that goes on in this neighborhood and spends your money; the same money they still refuse to give us an accounting for. To put it simply, Jim Frith takes your money, spends your money how he sees fit, and refuses to tell you where it goes. Does he even pay dues for all of his properties?
We also know that 4 of the 7 board members are also professed members of Bill Looman's North Georgia Militia. Jim and Bonnie Frith still control Beaver Run, only now, they have a band of armed thugs enforcing their orders.
Those Militia members are: Bill Looman (III for 3%), Elizabeth Glover, David Fry, and Tom Glover (see image below).
For more information about Bill Looman click this link: http://billlooman.com/
I picked up this juicy screen cap from Bill Looman's new Facebook page. It appears that he is trying to get together a group of armed militia people to go with him to Washington, D.C. to take over the White House.
This is the guy running our association.
My sources tell me that our association is broke. All of the money was spent on an unfinished parking lot on land we do not own; on attorney fees, including filing liens on properties without a judgment from a court; street lights that most of us do not want; and since Mr. Looman still refuses to give us an accounting of association funds, we can only speculate that much of our money has been spent on his militia activities, since 4 out of the 7 board members are in his North Georgia Militia.
In my opinion, Bill Looman is a very dangerous man. He is a danger to our community and a danger to our nation. The FBI and the Secret Service both have been to his home to question him about his threats to the president and his neighbors, and his attempt to take over a small town in Tennessee. He spends between 5 and 10 hours a day on Facebook fomenting violence, threatening and insulting everyone who does not believe in his very narrow, very violent, political opinions.
Read the rest of this page and you will see that Bill Looman and the other so-called board members were not elected in a proper election. At Mr. Looman's direction, his militia has taken control of our association and our neighborhood. They are presently working to remove the landowners they don't like, using "any means necessary." As you can see by his comments on the screen cap to the right, "FLIGHT WOULD BE THEIR ONLY OPTION." The only things Mr. Looman seems to know are intimidation and violence.
I have something
I've been sitting on
since Aug, 28, an
audio recording of
the last election of
the Beaver Run
meeting and election
was conducted by the
of directors from
the rigged 2010
election and chaired
this recording Bill
Looman conducts the
voting in violation
of several of the
by-laws which govern
the annual election
beyond all doubts
that Mr. Looman
by-laws and possibly
of members were not
allowed to vote,
more votes were cast
than allowed by the
by-laws, and Mr.
Looman and his wife
used many more proxy
votes than they were
Anyone wanting a copy of this election can contact me, it's free for the asking. This is a 434mb mov file, so it will have to be sent on a CD. Included on that CD will be a copy of the By-Laws and an explanation of the violations.
These are some of our objections to the present Board of Directors of our Association:
- The present board of directors was not elected in a proper election. Most of the members were not allowed to vote for various reasons, including unsubstantiated claims of past dues owed and refusal to allow proxy votes, except the ones held by board president, Bill Looman. Proper notice of the meeting and election, 30 days, was not given to members and, prior to the election, no one was allowed to be placed on a ballot.
- The board of directors has refused, since it's inception, to release any information to members, including financial statements.
- This was a new association, incorporated in 2008, and, as I understand, landowners are not required to to join. The developer's attorney, Robert T. Monroe, has forced membership on everyone in Beaver Run Subdivision.
- Since the last sham election on Aug. 28, 2011, there has been a campaign of intimidation and terror against the landowners who have objected to having our neighborhood hijacked by Bill Looman's North Georgia Militia.
We want a proper investigation of the present Board of Directors of the Beaver Run Landowners Association, inc, by the appropriate law enforcement agency.
Below are some of the improper actions by Bill Looman and other board members.
On August 29, 2010 there was a
meeting and a fake election of the
Board of Directors
of the Beaver Run
This was news to
most of the members,
as the only notice
given was a sign at
the entrance to the
a few days before
the meeting and
election. No mention
that this was an
meeting or that
there was to be an
state that the
annual meeting and
elections are to be
Bill Looman showed
up with his
hand-picked board and
themselves the Board
of Directors for the
For the past year his board has been having unannounced, to the members, meetings and making decisions that seem beneficial to only certain members of the community, in fact I, Jimmy Neal, am not allowed to attend the meetings. Although the vast majority of the members are not allowed to attend, a few of his friends are always welcome.
Since this association has been severely mismanaged and the dirt roads have not been maintained since the inception of the association in 1991, many members have not been paying dues. Instead of talking to members and explaining matters to them, he had the developers attorney, who also drafted the incorporation papers in 2008, to send all delinquent members a letter stating that the association would take the properties of anyone who did not catch up their dues, or make arrangements to pay them. As we are just now discovering, many members were not notified of this threat and now have FIFAs and/or leans on their properties. So far, the people we have talked to about this have their address on file with the County Tax Assessor's Office.
That brings us to this year's meeting. On about August 7, 2011, a notice was placed on the entrance to Beaver Run Subdivision announcing a meeting on the last Sunday in August, which was the 28th. Again, no mention of an annual meeting or an election, and being published on 8-7 for an election on 8-29, this does not comply with Georgia law or the By-Laws of the Beaver Run Landowners Association. A sign announcing the election was placed above this one 2 days before the election.
Despite the demonetizing of my reputation by Bill Looman and the David Fry, along with their wives, I decided to run for a position on the Board of Directors. So I made some flyers to post at the entrance to the subdivision and around the neighborhood. The flyers at the bridge managed to stay up for the week before the election, but the others were taken down or defaced. Then, on the day of the election a facsimile of my flyer was posted at the bridge where the meeting was to take place. As you can see, this was a very childish and derogatory act by a person(s) who are clearly not very bright and who seem to have something against the Democratic system. The picture was taken from my Facebook account, which I use a different name from my given one. Besides my close friends, Bill Looman is the only person to whom I have given the name of this account.
Now, for the last meeting and election
The membership of this corporation shall be comprised of the Owners of Lots in the Subdivision as set forth in said Declaration of Covenants. Voting by the members of this corporation shall be as set forth in and subject to the provisions of said Declaration of Covenants.
There is no mention in the Covenants and Restrictions as to one vote per lot. However, there is mention of the equality of the "owners," as opposed to the equality of the "lots."
Covenants and Restrictions
18. These restrictions and covenants are to run with the land and shall be binding on all parties and all persons claiming under them for a period of 20 years from the date these covenants and restrictions are recorded, unless at any time, an instrument is signed by a majority of the then owners of the Lots and duly recorded in the Haralson County Registry, agreeing to change said covenants and restrictions in whole or in part.
19. All owners of tracts of land that abut any of the 30 and 60 foot easements designated for private road(s) in the 471.80 acre tract of land known as BEAVER RUN, agree collectively and equally to maintain the private road(s) since the county has no responsibility for maintenance of private road(s). In particular, in view of their mutual easements over said 30 and 60 foot right-of ways, and as a condition to their continued use and enjoyment thereof....
To me, this says that each owner gets an equal number of votes.
BEAVER RUN LANDOWNERS ASSOCIATION, INC.
A Nonprofit Corporation
ARTICLE 2 Meetings of Members
Section 2. Annual Meetings. Annual meetings of members shall be held on the second Monday of January in each year, or if such day is a legal holiday, then on the next following Tuesday. At each such meeting, the members shall, by a majority vote, elect a board of directors, and, by majority vote, transact such other business as may be properly brought before the meeting.
August is not the time specified for the annual meeting.
The board was not elected by a majority vote. There were no opposing candidates, and whoever heard of voting AGAINST a nominee?
No other business was brought before the members for their consideration. Like spending thousands of $ to improve a lot at the entrance that is leased for only 2 years. Or spending $1,500 per year on street lights . Or $250.00 for signs to a board member, that several members would paint for free. Or allowing board members to profit from association money without a bid from other businesses or individuals.
The floor was not open to anyone who wanted to bring any issues to the members for consideration. In fact, one member was told by the President, Bill Looman to "get a lawyer if you want answers to your questions."
Section 4. Notice of Meetings. Written notice of a meeting stating the place, day and hour of meeting and, in the case of a special meeting, the purpose or purposes for which the meeting is called, shall be posted not less than thirty (30) nor more than forty-five (45) days before the date of the meeting.
- Not only was proper notice not given, but some members were not notified by mail at all. Neither the letters nor the sign at the bridge were posted 30 days prior to the meeting.
- On the sign at the bridge there was not even a notice of an election until 2 days before the meeting.
- There was no agenda given at all for the meeting.
Section 5. Business of Meetings. At an annual meeting of members, any matter relating to the affairs of the Association, whether or not stated in the notice of meeting, may be brought up for action (unless otherwise provided by law). Unless a majority of the members of this Association entitled to vote as determined by lot ownership are present and specifically agree thereto in writing, no matter that was not stated in the notice of a special meeting of members shall be brought up for action at such a special meeting.
- When members tried to bring up matters, the President, Bill Looman, refused many members the right to discuss their concerns.
Section 8. Voting.
(a) Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, all voting contemplated by these By-Laws shall be governed by the Declaration and any reference herein to the voting rights of any member shall be governed by the relevant provisions of the Declaration.
Refer to sections 18 and 19 of the Covenants and Restrictions above.
(b) Each Lot shall be entitled to one vote on each matter submitted to a vote at a meeting of members. A member may vote either in person or by a proxy executed in writing by the member or by his duly authorized attorney-in-fact. Any proxy must be in writing, signed by the Lot owner (or owners as provided below) and submitted to the President prior to the meeting. If any Lot is owned by a corporation, partnership, trustee or other entity or by a group of owners in any form of joint tenancy, the vote allocated to such Lot shall be exercisable by such owner or owners only as provided by the Declaration as amended from time to time. Unless the holder of a valid proxy, a mere lessee of any Unit shall have no right to vote and shall in no respect be deemed a member of the Association. In all elections for directors, every member entitled to vote shall have the right to vote, in person or by proxy, the number of units owned by him for as many persons as there are directors to be elected and for whose election he has the right to vote but members may not cumulate their votes.
- Because candidates were not announced, and proxies were not mentioned in the notice of the meeting, the only proxy votes that were allowed were those of Jim Frith, carried by Bill and Vinissa Looman.
- Seven directors, seven votes. There were more people nominated than seven, and everyone voted for, or against each one, for a total of more than seven votes; a clear violation of this section of the By-Laws.
Section 4. Books and Records. The Association shall keep correct and complete books and records of accounts and shall keep minutes of the proceedings of its members, board of directors, and committees of directors.
Not later than three (3) months after the close of each fiscal year, and in any case prior to the next annual meeting of members, the Association shall prepare a balance sheet showing in reasonable detail the financial condition of the Association as of the close of its preceding fiscal year, and a profit and loss statement showing the results of its operations during such fiscal year. Upon written request, the Association promptly shall mail to any member of record a copy of such balance sheet and profit and loss statement.
Donna Sims made a request for the financial records, in person at the meeting and by email, and as of now, she has not received a reply.
Section 6. Conflict. In the event of any conflict between these By-Laws and the following, the controlling language shall be found in: the laws of the State of Georgia, the Declaration or the Articles of Incorporation, in the order listed.
The Declaration of Covenants and Restrictions takes precedent over these By-Laws, which means one vote per person, not one vote per lot.
In fact, the Covenants and Restrictions outline a completely different structure than a board of directors.
We all know that it was Jim Frith's (the developer) attorney who drew up and filed the Articles of Incorporation. It was the insertion of the one vote per lot that kept Jim Frith, via Bill Looman, in charge of Beaver Run. Jim is old and Bill Looman runs the show now, and it is quite apparent that no one gets on the board of directors unless Bill approves. It is also easy to see that Bill runs the neighborhood with no regard for the other land owners in this community, association law, or the By-Laws of the association. Bill has his own agenda and Bill is going to do what he wants to whoever he wants. After all, he has the votes for all of Jim Frith's lots. Although the lot owners who are purchasing their property on contract with Jim Frith can show up and exercise their vote, if they are informed of the election, the votes for all of these lots are used by Bill Looman. When the Association was formed in 2008, he gave these votes to the contract holders, but he uses them if they don't show up to vote.
Bill has brought extreme right wing militias to Beaver Run and given them a place to thrive at the expense of our peace and tranquility. Presently, Beaver Run is a very dangerous place to live. If you have any doubts, go to his Facebook wall and read the rants and incitements to violence that he writes. Google him and read the ideologies he espouses and the people he associates with. Bill Looman is a very dangerous man who has a lot of guns and is looking for a reason to use them.
The Beaver Run Subdivision in Waco, Georgia was founded in 1987 by Dr. Charles Garrison, and Jim Frith of U.S. Properties. Over the past 23 years Jim and Bonnie Frith have inundated the Haralson County Clerk of Court with a plethora of deeds, quit claim deeds and competing surveys by several of their shell corporations, that, together, make Beaver Run's history difficult to decipher by the best of attorneys. From the beginning, the Restrictive Covenants were written in a manner that is so confusing, much of it defies interpretation. This site exists as an attempt to explain the problems that exist in our subdivision, particularly with the association.
I have been here since 1987 and have been active since Jim Frith announced that he had formed an association in 1991. I have the letter announcing the first meeting and a copy of the minutes of the first meeting and what he called an election. I have letters, deeds, copies of legal papers and many, many surveys. I also have a pictorial record of the roads going back many years. My intent is to present many of these documents in a manner to provide a clear understanding of the history of Beaver Run and why things are the way they are.
