Sad to think that we used to look up to people like this. Remember a saying from past oss. "the devil is in the details" Once you got a real look at the details of Petters we got to see the devil.

its the old one take the blame and the others play stupid game.Notice its all christian faith based monopolization going down the tubes...the pass off from one organization to another...another form of ENRON.Duluth has alot of unknown to the public things going on especially luthern faith based facilities.One was very connected to the drug bust Rachel paulose was involved in duluth-and dont forget the recent coke busts at 3 reservations up here...drug money and embezelments being laudered through faith based services-dont fall for the pity and look what good we were doing with the money-not when women and children were marketed inthis state...the truth willcome out you can only threaten people with phony police reports,evictions,and death threaths for so long for trying to report things...

i heard throught the wind/people there is alot of this in duluth -what I witnessed is people scamming and using these grants to pay rent since no one really checks this out(these businesses are phony)...do they give these to non church going people...a polite hidden payoff to the poor to keep things hush hush....meanwhile proerty taxes went up to 14% to support money laudering and its internal cost to keep it hidden....

...is a fine program that is well run and successful in bringing formerly troubled men back into society as good and productive citizens. It's good that they had the common sense not to bite off more than they could chew with a new larger property. Getting involved with this group would have given them a black eye and hurt their support from area churches and foundations.
