Pickleball exclusion from tennis courts & lack of outdoor court funding a cultural disagreement

19 Jan 2022 | Posted by Adam Howell. 2 Comments  

Pickleball players have been excluded from sharing tennis courts in Durango by people who disagree with the cultural validity of the sport, according to the President of Southwest Colorado Pickleball Association (SWCPA). Max Paustian, the President of SWCPA and several other players shared similar perspectives about how they were treated when trying to share Durango’s public tennis courts. Given the similarity between tennis courts and the lacking pickleball courts, the Association thought that their sport would be welcome. At first, pickleball players used the Needham…

7 Jan 2022 | Posted by Adam Howell. 7 Comments  

A petition we’re organizing seeks to end the COVID-19 jab or test requirement prior to entering certain Snowdown events. Are you ready to take action and talk some trash about some medical tyranny? A series of winter events happen every year in Durango called Snowdown. This year in order to attend some of those events, you have to show organizers your private medical records. Specifically, organizers are requiring attendees of certain events to first provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test. This…

San Juan Basin Public Health and FDA publish misinformation about COVID-19 vaccines

12 Dec 2021 | Posted by Adam Howell. 7 Comments  

San Juan Basin Public Public Health (SJBPH) department and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have published misinformation about COVID-19 vaccines on numerous websites and media platforms in La Plata County. Most striking was the misinformation through acts of omission about the potential adverse events from taking any of the COVID-19 vaccines. I’m talking about the missing VAERS data and personal accounts of blood clotting, Guillain Barre Syndrome, Bells Palsy, spontaneous abortions, premature babies and more. Also of concern is the misinformation about the vaccine…

Audio of Durango School Disctrict 9-R board meeting improved & vax mandates tabled

1 Dec 2021 | Posted by Adam Howell. No Comments  

Audio recording quality for a Durango School District 9-R Board of Education meeting on November 30th dramatically improved over its previous meetings. The improvement came after people were having trouble hearing what the board and its guests were saying in previous videos of the meetings. For one thing, the Nov. 30th meeting was held in a smaller room with less echo effect. The previous meeting room was large enough for guests, but its tall ceilings gave  an echo to the speaker’s voices. Coupled with the…

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…

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.

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.

29 Aug 2021 | Posted by Adam Howell. 4 Comments  

United Way of Southwest Colorado President and CEO Lynn Urban denied my access to the San Juan Brewfest at Buckley Park for failing to provide proof that I engaged in a medical procedure related to the COVID-19 virus. At 1328 hours on 8/29/2021 I was denied access and entry into Buckley Park, a city of Durango-leased public park that’s owned by Durango School District 9-R. I video recorded the discrimination.

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.

Vaccination disclosure sought as requirement for attending a board meeting

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…


Parents vs COVID cult at Durango School District 9R meeting

7 Aug 2021 | Posted by Adam Howell. 2 Comments  

Parents, teachers and medical professionals voiced sharply divided opinions about what COVID-19 risk management strategies Durango School District 9-R should take for students in the 2021-2022 school year at a meeting this week. 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.  Parent teacher who requests medical freedom Tory Queen, a teacher and parent, questioned the efficacy of…
