‘Ding and dent’ victim travels to Washington to provide an on-the-record interview of rental nightmare with the FBI while also making rounds on Capitol Hill

Let the sunshine shine and may the power forever rest with the people”

— David Howe, SubscriberWise founder and CEO

WASHINGTON, D.C., UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, September 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — SubscriberWise, the nation’s largest issuing CRA for the communications industry and the leading protector of children victimized by identity fraud, announced today the confirmation of a recorded interview between SubscriberWise founder and an agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The interview included the allegations of the ‘ding and dent’ incident in October 2016, but with a focus on the two public records which profoundly expose significant concerns regarding substantial financial consumer threats for lawmakers, media, and the renting public here and around the world to ponder and consider urgently and carefully.

See: http://www.einpresswire.com/newsroom/subscriberwise_newsroom/ for related news and images.

Specifically the two public records that were referenced for the Federal Bureau of Investigation and available to anyone through Florida’s broad ‘Sunshine Law’ ( http://myfloridalegal.com/pages.nsf/Main/DC0B20B7DC22B7418525791B006A54E4 ) are the official ‘Lee County Port Authority Police Report’ (Case No. 2016000055203) and the official ‘County Court of the Twentieth Judicial Circuit in and for Lee County Florida’ (Case No. 2018-SC-001768), Honorable Archie B. Hayward Jr.

The interview was conducted on Monday September 17, 2018, in the nation’s Capital and followed visits to the Office of the Honorable United States Senator Sherrod Brown, the Office of the Honorable Charles Schumer, the Office of the Honorable Elizabeth Warren, and the Office of the Honorable Bob Nelson of the great state of Florida — where Howe is a part-time seasonal resident and homeowner.

For the record, Howe is a native Ohioan and therefore intends to focus his legislative efforts to obtain ‘predictable and uniform car rental standards’ which are so desperately needed, with his constituent Senator, and who Howe supports and voted for 100 percent of the time, the Honorable Sherrod Brown of the great state of Ohio.

“I want to thank the FBI for taking time to record my testimony. Of course, I also want to thank the United States Senators’ staff members who were each so gracious in their welcoming, as well as their care, concern, and effort to record my concerns seriously. Moreover, let the record reflect the gratitude to the law enforcement professionals that I had the pleasure to interact with during my visit to the Senate Office Buildings and beyond. Each and every encounter proved accommodating, entirely respectful, and most importantly, helpful as I made my way around Washington, D.C. to empower our government with information so long desired but so difficult to obtain.

“Yesterday, that all changed as agencies across DC and beyond were empowered and enlightened,” Howe confirmed.

“Regarding the FBI interview, I was given an ample opportunity to articulate a number of important details for the encounter in late October 2016, at the Fort Myers SW FL International Airport, National Car Rental airport location. And that’s exactly what I tried to accomplish to the best of my ability,” Howe said. “But I had one primary request for the FBI that I repeated and urged a number of times. I requested agents from the Naples, FL, FBI office travel to the airport and obtain the Official Lee County Port Authority Police Department report with its myriad of facts, testimony, photographs, and more. And once obtained along with the hard evidence from an exhaustive investigation complied by a dedicated and highly-professional Lee Port Authority Police Officer, including sworn witness testimony and the high-definition photographic evidence, I requested the agents obtain the official court trial transcript – AND MOST IMPORTANTLY ITEMS EXHIBITED AT TRIAL AND NOW DOCKETED ON THE PERMANENT PUBLIC RECORD — and compare the two and the sworn testimony forever recorded for the world to evaluate, know, and ultimately criticize with rage and fervor at an injustice of high magnitude and profound concern indeed. And the same can be said about the obvious manipulation and cover-up so readily apparent to anyone who bothers to read the two reports,” Howe remarked

“Why. Because the contradictions really are remarkable. And undeniable. Literally.

“Yes, they are breathtaking. The story concocted is undeniable to all when compared to the mountain of evidence and the substantiating Lee Port Authority Police report – all of which was intentionally and aggressively objected to; all of which was kept far from Judge Hayward’s discerning eyes. No matter now,” continued Howe. “Because one involved the facts from an independent police investigation, including sworn testimony from the primary witnesses involved. Those facts, and in particular the under-oath contradictions – also known as perjury in the state of Florida ( http://www.leg.state.fl.us/Statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&URL=0800-0899/0837/Sections/0837.02.html ) – can no longer be dismissed or argued out-of-hand when compared to the other item, the Lee civil court testimony taken, of course, under-oath.

“Yes, the facts and testimony, they are now in the light of day and they can never be altered or taken back to fit a narrative that the defense would have us all believe in court, was the truth,” Howe proclaimed.

“But there was one question that the FBI agent asked me a few times,” Howe stated. “And that question was ‘why didn’t you give the police report to the Judge?’ In fact, without ready access to the court transcript to recite the numerous objections verbatim, it was my impression that the agent believed I was exaggerating this point. To the agent, it just didn’t seem plausible that an official police investigation would not get the careful scrutiny of a court of law – most notably a ‘small claim’ court where the merits of the case should trump the complex rules of civil procedure the defense attorney — in grand pleasure — was able to play to his radically unfair advantage. Nevertheless, it was a keen observation from my perspective, that the agent asked before I had the opportunity to stress this otherwise critical point.

“To be clear, that’s the critical point that every reasonable person would ask…why WOULD any ETHICAL company conducting business appropriately — and without anything unfair, deceptive, or abusive, to conceal — make such an extraordinary effort to keep a judge from reading the profound and extraordinary investigative effort of a fellow law enforcement officer sworn himself to uphold the law – a task he performed diligently and exactly in line with the oath he made to the people and visitors to Lee County, Fl,” Howe added.

“And to be sure, my answer to the question was ‘EXACTLY’,” Howe emphasized. “Yes, it simply begs the question why would any organization not want a court of law to consider an exhaustive police investigation, particularly since the same witness who was testifying in front of the Honorable Archie B. Hayward Jr., who presided over the small claims hearing, was also under-oath when he proffered a witness statement to Lee Police. The answer, hardly a surprise, is that Enterprise consistently objected to the police report as ‘hearsay’ – as well as every single item of audio and video evidence I had to prove the case – but for a single audio clip confirming the money pursuit.


“It’s obvious,” Howe stressed.

“Because the police investigation and all that was detailed and exposed simply couldn’t align with the grand fairy-story that was offered to the Lee Clerk of the Court and the people of the nation and the world,” Howe confirmed.
“Fortunately, though, for the truth and the facts of the matter, I’ve had some very powerful and some very informed allies through this process. And much of it from law enforcement professionals from Maryland to California who have delivered both direct and indirect aid and information to expose the consumer harm that is ever apparent,” confirmed Howe.

“So yes, I’m both pleased and relived to have effectively passed the Baton now that all the evidence is finally on the table – including now two public records each containing sworn testimony – and no longer mere allegations from the victim – to state and federal law enforcement, as well as major media outlets. In other words, the details, the evidence, the facts, and most importantly, the TRUTH can never be concealed.
Praise justice! The public will forever remain informed and aware. The public will understand the risks are real and the need to protect oneself is dramatic. But, thankfully, no human effort will every erase the public record and the bad acts contained therein.

“Let the sunshine shine and may the power forever rest with the people,” Howe concluded.

Centering Writing in the Community: the Crystal Coast Writers Retreat

Retreat logo

Join us on Friday, October 26!

Save the Date for the Crystal Coast Writers Retreat at Carteret Community College: Friday, October 26, 2018, 9AM.

Sure, reading's important — but, c'mon, so is writing, am I right? (You see what I did there: writing, right?)”

— William Kane, Retreat Co-Sponsor, Library Partners Press

MOREHEAD CITY, NC, USA, September 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Crystal Coast Writer's Retreat: Centering Writing in Community

Writers and readers and librarians and publishers and booksellers and really everyone is invited to participate in a half-day symposium at Carteret Community College exploring the role of writing and other literacy practices in building community. The event promises to bring together authors and writers and publishers and organizations to discuss ways to build strong partnerships supporting community literacy education and new opportunities for literacy practices. Conversations at this event will lay the groundwork for future collaborations and future projects such as a community writing center network and county-wide community writing projects. The half-day meeting will take place on Friday, October 26, from roughly 9AM until NOON (followed by optional off-campus lunch). All activities will take place in the lovely Foundation Building on the lively campus of Carteret Community College along the shores of the spectacular Crystal Coast. Much of the morning will be spent mingling with writers and authors from different institutions, so you might think of this as a day of discussion and planning more than a day of listening to presentations. Our goal is to ensure that all attendees have opportunities to meet people working in other writing sectors and with different populations so that we can build bridges between the different groups who are doing literacy work near-by or afar.

The featured speakers will be Aimee Mepham, Assistant Director of the Humanities Institute at Wake Forest University, and Dr. Ryan Shirey, Director of the Writing Center at WFU. Aimee and Ryan's experience with community literacy projects include, among other projects, OUTSIDE THE MARGINS: CENTERING WRITING IN THE COMMUNITY.

For more information including speaker bios and retreat schedule, please see and register today at http://crystalcoastwritersretreat.splashthat.com

There is no registration fee for the event, but we do ask that you register so that we can plan for seating and catering.

Fountain Microtel Ground Breaking Ceremony

The new Microtel Inn & Suites is a franchised Wyndham Hotel owned by Fountain Hotels LLC and managed by Channel Point Hospitality.

This is going to be a real boon to the city. It’ll draw a lot of people and they’ll go into the city and find other places to eat and shop. It’s just a total advantage, and we’re really happy.””

— Fountain City Council Member, Richard Applegate

FOUNTAIN, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, September 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Community leaders and businesspeople attended the official groundbreaking ceremony for the new 63-room Fountain Microtel Inn & Suites, located at 7710 Office Circle near the south entrance of Fort Carson, Sept. 13.

The first concrete pour took place on Sept. 8, but the Thursday ceremony signified the official commencement of construction on the new hotel that local government officials like City Council Member Richard Applegate expect to bring economic growth to the City of Fountain.

“There’s no place to really come and stay in a hotel, especially a nice one like this,” Applegate said. “This is going to be a real boon to the city because it’ll draw a lot of people and they’ll go into the city and find other places to eat and shop. It’s just a total advantage, and we’re really happy. It’s been a long time coming.”

Applegate said that its neighbor, Colorado Springs, has historically drawn much of the local tourism and business. The smaller City of Fountain was not as appealing as Colorado Springs, but now the city is growing and developing with new housing developments and shopping centers. Local infrastructure is improving, and the city is developing into a place that people come to and feel comfortable.

“People just need to keep an eye on Fountain,” Applegate said.

The new Microtel sits next to I-25 and near a Love’s Travel Center but otherwise is surrounded by open land.

The new Microtel Inn & Suites is a franchised Wyndham Hotel owned by Fountain Hotels LLC and managed by Channel Point Hospitality. This is the first Microtel for Fountain Hotels LLC, though the company has been in the area since 2005. The husband and wife ownership team has owned a local gas station and Super 8. They hope to begin construction on a second hotel within the next five years.

The process of opening a new hotel requires the involvement of several businesses, individuals and government agencies over the course of several years. First, Beckett Development chose the land and equipped it for water, sewage and electricity.

“I am just so glad to be here and to see this hotel coming up, it’s been a dream for a long time, and it’s absolutely (important) that the city of Fountain have this hotel,” Audrey Beckett a land developer with Beckett Development said. Beckett added that the new Microtel is the first large hotel designed to serve the residents in the Fountain area. “This is really, I believe, an important landmark that’s come to the community, and I believe (the community) will really benefit from it.”

Fountain Hotels LLC and Accurate TDC, LLC, a local development company, chose the land and began planning construction and obtaining the required permits and funding. Finally, companies like Bedrock Construction Group play their part in building the hotel that will subsequently be passed on to Channel Point Hospitality. The hotel is projected to open in April 2019 and create between 15 to 20 new, permanent jobs in the area.

“Opening a new hotel is multifaceted, we want to be actively engaged with the community, create a good digital presence online, and make sure we can get as many heads in beds when we open the doors,” Benjamin Berger, Director of New Hotel Operations for Channel Point Hospitality, a company that manages nearly 20 hotels in Colorado said. “We will have a full management team, that’s both front of the house and back of the house, (as well as) front desk, housekeeping and maintenance. We expect to bring the general manager on about three months before we open, and the rest of the team we’ll hire about a month and a half to a month out.”

Out of the 21 brands that Wyndham owns, Microtel is considered an upper economy brand. According to Tom Fransen, the Regional Vice President of Development for Wyndham Hotels and Resorts, Wyndham plays a role in determining what hotel brand is suitable for the area.

“This project has been almost two years in the making,” Fransen said. “Finding the right piece of land and the right location and mirroring the right brand with the location is really important. We’re excited about being in Fountain for our Microtel by Wyndham brand, and we actually look forward to doing more in Colorado.”

Tom Cave of Accurate TDC, LLC realized that Fountain was a good market and approached Wyndham about building a Microtel in the area. Microtel is one of the few hotel brands that requires an entirely new structure to be developed and will not allow refurbishing of existing hotels. As a franchisor, Wyndham representatives will keep in contact with the developer and construction company to ensure Microtel standards are met, but about eight weeks before opening, Wyndham will work closely with the management company to establish the new location’s online presence and make it accessible through the company’s booking sites.

“Every market is different, and there might be a market that it doesn’t even make sense for us to be,” Fransen said. “We have a brand for about every travel location.”

Microtel is currently the fastest growing brand and a good brand for upper-end economy travelers needing a place to rest while traveling along a major highway, Fransen said.

“We’ve got such a great location,” Applegate said as he pointed to the mountain range lining I-25 that Microtel guests will see. “This a perfect location right here, and it’s going to benefit the city because it’s going to bring tourist dollars in, and this is something we need.”

NEW YORK, USA, September 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The stunning island of Anguilla has been ranked the #1 island in the Caribbean in the 2018 Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards. The awards honor the top travel destinations and companies around the globe as rated by its readers.

Anguilla which is one of the most beautiful tropical Islands in the Caribbean has been voted the best island to visit for the second year in a row. A warm and welcoming island destination tucked away in the northern Caribbean just north of its neighboring islands of St. Martin and St Barths. Anguilla is a warm and friendly island with resilient people. Bouncing back from Hurricane Irma in 2017, Anguilla has seen a boost in tourism in 2018 and predicts a steady increase for 2019.

“This Award represents a tremendous vote of confidence in our destination, it is a wonderful endorsement of our tourism product” that reinforces the credibility of our message that Anguilla is back, better than ever, in the aftermath of the challenges we have faced, said the Hon. Cardigan Connor, Parliamentary Secretary in Anguilla’s Ministry of Tourism.

So why did Anguilla win the #1 spot?
Anguilla is an incredibly beautiful island that boasts some of the world’s best beaches, the best cuisine in the Caribbean as well as being home some of the best vacation rentals in the world.

The beaches here are second to none with their bright white sand and truly spectacular turquoise sea. Anguilla features an array of sea life due to its coral reefs, offering some of the best diving and snorkeling in our planet. The small inlets and cays are also a wonderful place to explore or enjoy water sports or even take a luxury catamaran day sail around the entire island.
