    Mike B has alleged many things about me yet provided no specifics
    or proof.

    Since I cannot contact you directly, whomever you are, I have
    contacted law enforcement and hope that they will review the
    retaliatory eviction proceedings as well as my civil suit against
    Michael E Becnel while reviewing the information I have compiled
    over the last number of years.

    How is the lawn care service working out for you?
