"A Man Named Tommy" by Kimberly Koerber-Bauer-Koerber

"Tommy" is a local man who lives in Roanoke, Virginia. 

A prior marine.

A man who needs the hand of friendship.

A man who likes other people.

A man who got trapped with crime and is scared.

A drunk.

No one seems to want to listen to "Tommy".

Tommy sleeps in the woods near the freeway and panhandles for a living.


"Ku Klux Klan Activity Abusing Homeless People in Roanoke, Virginia: A Sadist's Field of Dreams" by Kimbelry Koerber-Bauer-Koerber

A presentation in the chapel area of the Roanoke Rescue
Mission had people singing patriotic songs and
a slide show shown on screen.  The last slide on
screen wa of a person, who could not be seen, who was really wrapped
up in an American flag. After the presentation,
some of the women who went back to the Rescue Mission
were saying that "A Woman died there".

Rescued for The Kill:  A Fascist Rescue Mission in Roanoke, Virginia


Civil Rights exist in the United States, or do they? 

Most people think so, until they encounter circumstances placed in areas by fascist groups of leaders who disguise this as 'well intentions'.  Roanoke Rescue Mission, in Roanoke, Virginia, located at 402 4th Street SE Roanoke, VA 24013 USA is one such example.

Roanoke Rescue Mission is a crooked facility because of the following:

1. They require all people who stay there to deposit 75% of their income toward housing, and the housing is inferior, and the people have a hard time getting their money. This is an investment fraud scheme.

2. People there are in poverty, yet the Rescue Mission will not pay for or arrange free on line classes through Universal Class, an entity which offers all kinds of on-line education and could help all people - even people confined to a wheelchair. The site is legitimate and endorsed by the Roanoke Public Library system and is located at

to Columbus, Ohio.  Columbus is the state capital of Ohio.

I think this violates people's Civil Rights. In addition to this, the staff they have thee acts 'superior' and as if the people there as less than, and will always be this. Some of the staff there is outright mean. People Complain about this all of the time but feel powerless to do anything about this. This Rescue Mission may also be a racketeering set up that is still in place that helped an old Governor of Ohio - namely Ted Strickland of Ohio, attain a massive amount of money 'on the people'. The set up is still in place although Strickland is out of office in Ohio.

Also, Strickland's law office is in Roanoke, VA. They have a large Klan based political family who are abusive to other people. Not allowing or paying for education to help people there at the Rescue Mission should be one of the reparations they are forced to make after abusing many people for the length of time they have.

Protectors would say;" This is fake." 
"We are not Fascists from The American Nazi Party."
"This is a joke."
"There is definately no drug activity or drug smell - legal or illegal."

The problem is that someone is creating the homelessness and helplessness, and then capitalizing on it.  Maybe Roanoke, Virginia needs to bond with or 'blame' fascist countries, but I really think this is coming from here.  In addition to the above mentioned problems, the cafeteria smells like a very familiar 'soper' type of drug encountered before.  The drug is a large white chalky drug in hard form.  The women who are in the cafeteria when i was there seem to be much worse off, generally speaking, than the men.  Many seem "stoned" for some reason.  This could be my imagination, or could be the truth.  The mission is classified as a 'sick poor' mission because of lack of programming.  The general programming for the women does not exist.  I think the men's area could be just as bad, but was not there to witness anything and then present findings, being a woman myself.  

Strickland was the Ohio Governor who was
always making trips to Germany.  In Ohio, someone brought
Deutschmarks in, to get Germany involved in Ohio politics.

A beautiful woman, who is currently 70, (and does not look older than 53) and whom I was talking with yesterday said that she ended up there because of being abused by a spouse.  She also is stuck and seems very high class, but is getting abused along with the other women there by staff who is not  sensitive and acts more like jail staff at times than anything else.  I think that some of the problem has in her case to do with her looks.  She is beautiful, clear thinking, and has curly grey hair and bright beautiful blue eyes.  She was also the victim of an illegal racketeering which took place here in Roanoke, Virginia.  

Does the state of Virginia and the Civil Rights Commission have a case?  You better believe they do.  Will they react in a timely way and be the advocates of those who are homeless and needy? More will be revealed.  This is another story that should be marked "To Be Continued". 


"Who is Ted Strickland?"

"Days of Wine and Roses - Living with an abusive relationship situation" by Kimberly Koerber-Bauer-Koerber

Male/Female Relationship

Uh-oh - Another side of Roanoke, Virginia...

I left the Roanoke Rescue Mission after two days there.  What went wrong there?

I felt
     * Locked up
     * Fear
     * Insomnia
     * Stuck
     * No One cares about me!
     * In a bad relationship to be stuck here
     * Crying all night for two nights - hard to sleep but not interested in taking anything for sleep
     *  Other people there were complaining about my crying and were not sympathetic.

About 'relationships' and brick walls
 I asked for my luggage which was taken out of a cage and I left Monday morning.  I don't know what to do next.  The Rescue Mission requires that people put 75% of their income toward housing, and the Mission 'holds ' this money - if the person has an income.  If you don't have an income, it looks like you have to live there for years.  Other clients said they lived there for years:  One client said two years, another said four years, another said five years.  The inside of the place smells very antiseptic and has metal bunk beds like a jail.  The ward or small room I was in has room for 24 women with no belongings and two toilets, and two shower stalls, one on each side of the bathroom.  People have to be in their beds by 9:00 pm and the women have no social or mixing time except for the cafeteria, which is at the other side of the complex and is 'off limits' after checking into the 'sleeping side'.

Fighting Faces - From
Mr. John Drilling, my fiance is disrespectful and disappeared all day yesterday.  I have no car, and cannot go anywhere so walked around alone. which Mr. Drilling wants me to do.  I went to two masses at St. John's Episcopal Church, one at 8:00 am and the other at 10:00 am then went to Good Samaritan House and then walked around in Roanoke more.  Roanoke is a nice, but somewhat small town.  On Monday, when I told Mr. Drilling that I did not want to move around from city to city and stay in shelters forever he got mean and said that he was breaking up with me he man has consistently given me but trouble and I have consistently written "Born To be Miserable", and applied for jobs with no result.  Drillling said that he wanted a woman who worked instead of a woman who wrote.  I then told the man off and there were witnesses to hear this around in the park at the time.  There was no physical violence.  Then Drilling said that he was going to the Homeless Outreach office to get a ticket for himself to leave.  He was also hit by a drunken driver as a cabdriver in Columbus, Ohio and is awaiting an accident settlement.  He has not applied for any jobs in Roanoke and keeps complaining about me not working but the man was 'supposed to be' my protection and fiance.  I do not get paid for my blog spot.  I would prefer to work at a job and not be trapped with him as much as he acts like he hates me.  Intermittently in all of this, Drilling tells me that he loves me and switches to making up with me, but we have not had intimate relations since leaving Columbus, Ohio which has not been about three months.  Drilling also now claims that i physically hit him at some point which never occurred at all.  Drilling said that he was at the Rom House yesterday but was there without me.  The man also says that he is now going to take me to court, but i did not do anything to him.

People assume that Drilling is my husband but we never got married because he said the i have to have my ex-husband's death certificate to marry him, according to an Asian Catholic priest in Greensboro, NC.  I consulted with other Catholics who said this is not true. The man tells people that he worked hard and got us a 'place' but the only place we ever had together was a room at  The Motel One on E. Main Street, In Columbus, Ohio and they were running a crack cocaine cartel from there.  They shut the motel down according to articles put on the internet after we left there.  Drilling and I have moved to various cities and each time have had to stay in the shelter there with no money.  He always hates the place before we are there for very long and wants to leave.  Legal help always shows up and is around him but never around me.  In addition to this, the man is angry all of the time and when I talk to another person, particularly if the person is a man, Drilling comes up with some kind of 'porn related' string of rhetoric and applies this to whatever man this happens to be with me to irritate me.  I have ignored this for a long time but other people see and hear this.  Instead of this, I wanted to be gainfully employed and paid. 

My two pieces of luggage are a problem also because Drilling complains about this loudly and now says that he has a 'cyst' on his aorta' and does not want to help me with luggage so that other people feel sorry for him.  The luggage or 'baggage' is not the only problem in this relationship.  We have been in a relationship since 2006-2007and the man has gotten more and more controlling over time.  He was a cabdriver in Columbus, Ohio but thanks to his irresponsible spending habits we still do not have a car and have to walk everywhere we want to go. 

I 'think' all of this is being done to enable a 'crook in a string' to use my Social Work degree and to force me to go on "disability' since I was supposedly, according to the crooks, mentally ill in high school anyhow and do not count.  My bachelor's degree was earned under the name of Bauer when I was married and is legitimate.  I also think at time that Drilling wants me to pay him but I have no money myself. 

Drilling says that the reason he will not go to the Episcopal Church or any other church is because he is "Catholic" and that the Catholic church is the 'true church' but he will not go to the Catholic Church either anymore.  He also walks around muttering to himself all of the time about "the bread and the wine" as if he is a Catholic priest, which is weird.  John says he does not want to be a Catholic priest. 

When I met Drilling, it was at The Salvation Army shelter in Wooster, Ohio after my house was robbed.  He looked and acted normal at the time, but since then he has degraded in all ways. 

My 54th birthday is coming up on July 17th and I have prayed repeatedly for a change but none has been forthcoming  except for me to get older and Drilling to degrade more and more.  I don't know what to do but work on the Field Analysis and do other writing. 

Drilling says he does not want to be mentioned on "Born To Miserable" and now is angry because he 'heard' this being written.  I think the man is sick and needs counseling.  I am hoping that someone will help him which will help me also.

I guess, it could be worse...... :(
