January 6th was the 4 yr anniversary of one of the worst days of my life. The day they came & took my animals. I thought we’d clear things up by the end of the week & I’d be back home with my furkids going on with life as usual. As we all know that was not the case…
I spent most of the day crying, missing my babies, most of my pictures have been lost since I lost everything I owned trying to get to court every week & not being able to work BECAUSE I had to court every week, sometimes 2 or 3 times a week. I also lost most of my pictures of my family & my dogs & cats. I was going through some paperwork & found a list of my passwords & I found one for photobucket & I found a bunch of pictures of them! While I was screaming at Creator for my broken heart & for creating these vile disgusting subhuman creatures he gave me some measure of joy.
Hokishila 2007 (3 yrs old)
Soffia Bella Loren 2007 (7 yrs old)
Lilly & Taz 2006 (1 yr old)
So Hoki is now 10 yrs old, Soffia is 14 yrs old & Lilly & Taz are now 9 yrs old. I don’t know if they are still alive or not but if they are then I have got to fight for them. I don’t have much hope by now but I have to hold on to something or I will lose my sanity.
I just started getting all of my stuff together for a lawsuit against the city & have started doing all of my public records requests. That is always a joy… NOT!
I call it the “PRR dance”
1) I ask for records
2) They ask me if I am sure that is what I wanted
3) I say yes,
4) They ask me to clarify what I wanted
5) I tell them the same thing
6) Then the city attorney comes into it & ask me to narrow my request
7) I say no, I want what I asked for
8) They finally give me something but NOT what I asked for & it has a trojan virus on it
9) Oh & then try to change my request & thank me for changing it in another email
10) I again tell them that I did NOT change my request & I still want the same records
11) Then they come back again & ask me to narrow my request,
12) I again say no,
13) Then they try to make me feel like I am picking on them but they make sure to remove Toby Nixon from our emails “because he is such a busy person”
14) I say that they need to stick to the time line & give me the records I requested in the form & format I requested & I add Toby Nixon back in to the email
15) Then they say it may take more then the 6 months they said it would take because they spent 2 months screwing around NOT giving me my records
Requesting public records is not for the faint of heart or weak minded people. That may sound funny but it’s no joke.
In all fairness I did request 24 people’s emails, texts & phone records for the last 4yrs which is how long they have to keep them. Then earlier today I asked for 15 more people’s info for the same amount of time. Then the genius writes me back & says I asked for 4 & a 1/2 years worth of records
You have sought these for over a four-and-a-half year period covering “from the dates of November, 1, 2010 to October 24th 2014.”
What in the heck? If any sane person can come up with 4 1/2 yrs out of those dates then please let me know how you did it without traveling to a parallel universe.
So I have to think this person is college educated so somehow he is trying to trip me up. He is the bigwig of Public Records, he knows all about them, he even writes books for the cities to use to fight public records requests: YET he claims he doesn’t know how to deliver emails in PST format instead of MSG format with all of the metadata stripped from it! Really?Then they have the nerve to ask me for the virus infested disk back so “they can figure out what happened” yeah right, I’m not giving them that, it went to a forensic specialist!

Subject: PRA request to the City of Everett from Taamu — scope of the request
Ms. Moen will continue to serve as your primary contact on this request, but I wanted to address some of the issues you have raised below.
I have attached a copy of your original request and attempted to summarize it below. The emails that we produced (that we had also produced to Ms. Block) are responsive as you have requested “all” of the Mike Fisher’s emails without any limitation as to subject matter.
You state below that your request is “very specific, & for very specific people, for very specific records which in theory was supposed to save everyone some time & headaches as I was going to post them & make them available on-line to which you could refer any other requestors to that site & be done with it.” We would be happy to work with you in any manner to focus and narrow this request. But at least as we are interpreting your request, it is anything but specific or narrow request – it may even be the broadest request the City has ever received. Thus, our 6 month estimate may be overly optimistic but that is our goal.
Finally, I am looking into the issue of the “Trojan.bat” file but I can assure you that the City did not intentionally include any malicious file in its response. If you want to bring in the CD, that would help us to see if we can determine its origins. Otherwise we will research what we have to see if we can find anything. I will let you know if we are able to figure anything out about it.
Summary of your PRA request.
“This is a purposefully broad request seeking to gather all records which in any way relates to this PRR. Pursuant to RCW Chapter 42.56, please provide me with copies of the following public records” “emails & phone/cell records” including “attachments” from all sources including “all [email] folders, junk mail & sent items,” “whether a personal email address or computer was used its subject to the PRA.”
You have sought these for over a four-and-a-half year period covering “from the dates of November, 1, 2010 to October 24th 2014.” You have asked us to search “all computers, portable phones, BlackBerries, Kindle, I Pad, or other devices, or in email, data, voice mail, or text mail accounts owned, controlled or paid for by the any government agency”
Finally, you are asking for four and half years’ worth of emails from 23 people separate people:
1} All of Laura Van SLyke’s
2} All of Mike Fisher’s
3} All of Lori Trask
4} All of Shannon (Delgado) Johnson’s
5} All of James D Iles’
6} All of Ron Gipson’s
7} All of Brenda Stonecipher’s
8} All of Shannon Affholter’s
9} All of Drew Neilson’s
10} All of Kate Reardon’s
11} All of Paul Robert’s
12} All of Jeff Moore
13} All of Scott Bader’s
14} All of Debra Bryant’s
15} All of David Mitchell’s
16} All of Timothy O’Dell’s
17} All of G. Geoffrey Gibbs’
18} All of Cheryl Byer’s emails
19} All of Hil Kama n’s
20} All of Katie Traenkenschuch
21} All of Leslie Tidball’s
22} All of Brie Hopkins’
23} All of Teresa Cox’s
Thank you for your cooperation.
They also removed the Mayor in my request but I caught that one real quick. They are such snakes that you have to read & reread EVERYTHING they say to you because they are trying to trip you up. I am sure they are flippin fissed at me because I have learned well enough by now to NOT back down. Give me what I asked for & quit screwing around. They don’t like that one bit either.
Oh & I found out my statute of limitations hasn’t run out from the last time they screwed me out of public records so they’ve got another suit coming at them! It kind of stands to reason that after you rape someone civil rights for 4 years straight that they may have learned the games you play…
My intent is to use some of the records for myself & for my suit but a lot of other people need records that can’t get them either since they don’t know how to do the PRR Dance, & finally because I am going to post them online for the general public so they can get those records without the headaches. We are going to store them by year & by person, & then once a year ask for the the last years emails, that right there would save the county 10’s of 1000’s of dollars in the long run which you think would make them happy
That is not how the city operates: They have become so used to screwing around with PR requester & have gotten away with it for so long that they don’t even bother to hide their dirty dealings, that is why I had no choice but to ask for everything. No whittling it down, no narrowing anything to non~existence.
Okay so can they try to get a court order to deny fulfilling my request? Possibly, if they get one of the Judges they have in their pockets, but that just helps me get my request further up the line, up to the higher courts. The problem is & it is a valid point that most of the time in order to help you build a case, or do any investigative reporting you need ALL of the records & not just some here & there.
For instance I found one email between Commissioner Gibbs & the city of Everett Prosecutor Mike Fisher discussing how to build a case against a certain woman & discussing the different strategies they could use! Since when did it become legal for a prosecutor & a judge to discuss railroading someone? Especially since Gibbs was representing the other woman as her lawyer!
Do you want to know what the WSBA did about that? NOTHING as usual… can’t bite the hand that feeds them. Oh & he was Governor & Treasurer for the WSBA, & President of the Snohomish County Bar Assn & is now a Superior Court Pro~Tem Judge, Snohomish County District court Judge, Everett Municipal Court Judge Pro~Tem, Chair of the Discipline Task Force & responsible for writing the rules of professional conduct! You can not make this crap up if you tried. I’m pretty sure he KNOWS what they did was illegal & any normal person would understand that as well yet there was no action taken against him & the other Judges are helping him get away with CONSTANT behavior like this. All the way up to the Western Washington District Courts.
Okay so that is just one email: There are more that show this pattern of behavior that I am not mentioning now because either I need to use them or I haven’t gotten a hold of the parties & gotten permission to release them. What that does is show, a pattern of behavior & possibly help in a court case, not just mine & then it can lay out the abuses in such a way that MAYBE we can get some Govern”mental” office to do something about their abuses of power.
So like I said now I made a second further request

For those responsive records that currently exist in electronic format (such as email, Word, or PDF files), please provide those documents in native searchable format including metadata. You are free to forward the files to me by email or copy the .pst files (with metadata) onto a CDR or DVD. Alteration of original email from its original .pst file along with its metadata is considered a violation of the Public Records Act; see Shoreline. For those documents which exist only in paper form, please scan those documents into PDF files and copy those files onto a CDR or DVD or email them directly to me. Where paper copies of records available in electronic form contain handwritten marks or notes, please provide the native electronic record.
“Public record” includes “any writing containing information relating in any way to the conduct of government or the performance of any governmental or proprietary function prepared, owned, used, or retained by any state, county, or local agency regardless of physical form or characteristics.” RCW 42.56.010(2). “‘Writing’ means handwriting, typewriting, printing, photostating, photographing, and every other means of recording any form of communication or representation including, but not limited to, letters, words, pictures, sounds, or symbols, or combination thereof, and all papers, maps, magnetic or paper tapes, photographic films and prints, motion picture, film and video recordings, magnetic or punched cards, discs, drums, diskettes, sound recordings, and other documents including existing data compilations from which information may be obtained or translated.” RCW 42.56.010(3).
This request specifically includes -and you are specifically directed to obtain, preserve in native format, and produce -any records that exist on computers, portable phones, BlackBerries, Kindle, IPad, or other devices, or in email, data, voice mail, or text mail accounts owned, controlled or paid for by the County or personal devices used for any city business. Or any personal emails used for city business at any time.
For each record that you contend is exempt from public disclosure, please specifically identify the record by subject, title, author, custodian and date, and specifically state how the specific statutory exemption applies to the record as required by RCW 42.56.210(3). For each record that is only partially exempt from public disclosure, please provide a redacted copy of that record.

We’ll see how much more screwing around we have to do before I get the records… If anyone needs any records from the people I have listed here then please let me know & if I ever get them I will give them to you as well. It would be so much easier if they didn’t try to fight you off at every opportunity but they do the only difference from 1/6/2011 & now is that I know my rights & I know what the law is. So do they, but they don’t seem to care about that either way.
Pretty sad that I have to do this at all.
