Non-addictive, 'heroin-like' medicine may soon crush major depression

Non-addictive, 'heroin-like' medicine may soon crush major depression | Fox News:

What could easily be the most important advance in the pharmacologic treatment of major depression and anxiety disorders is now unfolding.  
A new investigational drug, currently known as ALKS 5461, could deliver all the mood-enhancing and anxiety-lowering effects that lead people to use opiates like heroin and Oxycontin—without the potential for getting high or addicted.  That’s right:  ALKS 5461 could be a non-abusable, non-addictive heroin-like compound.
ALKS 5461 is actually a combination of two molecules.  The first is buprenorphine, which is already used to provide some of the benefits of opiates, without many of the worst side effects, allowing people to get off of street drugs (as an alternative to methadone).  The second molecule is now known as ALKS 33—and that’s the magic part.

NH Courts in Chaos even with Order's

DMVC Productions = Results: NH Courts in Chaos even with Order's:

George Orwell once said "Political chaos is connected with the decay of language... one can probably bring about some improvement by starting at the verbal end." If so then Judicial chaos is connected with the decay of literacy, one could probably bring about improvement if all the legal actors involved followed the rules and orders of their superior and actually had stock in their oath of office. 
For example, in New Hampshire the court system is operating in chaos, we have a first amendment right to free speech so the courts are suppose to accessible to all unless its so disruptive; the bulger case packs the court so what could be so disruptive? Anything the judge says for example this order from 2008  fhttp://www.courts.state.nh.us/supreme/orders/order011108.pdf clearly informs the public and the courts that audio and/or video taping is allowed in court rooms.


So, instead of paying $25.00 plus for poor quality tapes from the courts you can create your own when your in there. However, this development this past March of 2012, again like GAL cases shows the Judges of these courts do not know the laws and orders they are suppose to act under.

NH Family Judges Exempt from Appellate Review-Pass CACR-26

NH Family Judges Exempt from Appellate Review « Fathers & Families:


Recently I did a piece on a promising development in New Hampshire – the actions of the Redress of Grievances Committee of the state House of Representatives.  Apparently, citizens can take their complaints against state officials to the Committee, have them heard and, if they’re deemed founded, the Committee will recommend action by the legislature.  The findings of the Committee’s investigation into the outrageous behavior of family court judges, Marital Masters, Guardians ad Litem and the like make it clear just how out of control are the family courts of the Granite State.  Indeed, those courts and their personnel plainly behave as they wish, regardless of due process of law, regardless of evidence law and regardless of litigants’ rights and children’s well-being.  Impeachment was the recommendation for more than one state official.
But a question arises; how can courts act with such impunity?  How can they behave in such a wild West, answerable-to-no-one manner?

Read More at the above link:

This article also brings us to CACR-26. In 1978, the legislature gave the state Supreme Court the power to make and implement rules for the lower courts of the state to abide by. Contrary to the clear language of the enabling statute that those rules would have “the force and effect of law.” The judges were freed to do anything their heart desired with no concern that an appellate judge would overrule them. Passage of CACR-26 would finally allow ALL Family Court Litigants New Hampshire to appeal the illegal actions of family court judges. 

Please vote in November to PASS CACR-26 and give the NH Family Court Litigants back their rights which were taken from them in 1978!

PETITION #33 Grievance of Nicholas Haas. Majority repeort

PETITION #33 Grievance of Nicholas Haas. Majority repeort | Kevin Avard for State Rep:


PETITION #33 Grievance of Nicholas Haas. Majority repeort

Grievance Founded with Recommendations.
Committee Majority Findings:
The Redress of Grievances Committee listened to the testimony and saw the supporting documents of a Petitioner who in the process of a divorce case found himself suffering from numerous inexplicable, and arbitrary acts at the hands of the Family Division which have not only reduced him to virtually no income to support his home family but has wrongfully jailed him for inability to pay. Despite never being adjudicated an unfit parent he has been denied all contact with his children for nearly three years without any order of the court preventing such contact in violation of his fundamental parental rights and contrary to NH RSA 461-A:6, (Best Interests of the Child); NH RSA 633:1-A and 633:3-A and 633:4, (Interference with Custody); and, the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
Specifically, the Committee finds that Manchester Judicial Branch Family Division Marital Master Leonard Green:  1. Made an incorrect and confiscatory order (see RSA 458-C:2 IV c) that has reduced Petitioner to near financial ruin, violating NH Child Support Guidelines, and improperly awarding unnecessary alimony per NH RSA 458:19 and 546-A:5 (Uniform Civil Liability for Support); 2. Failed to comply with NH RSA 461-A:VI a (Parental Rights and Responsibilities). (See also NH Constitution Art.35. [The Judiciary; Tenure of Office]); and 3. Failed to consider the mandatory self-support reserve in RSA 458-C IV and the support for others mandated in RSA 546-A:5(g); 4.Failed to comply with the NH Supreme Court Rule 38 Code of Judicial Conduct (Abuses of discretion and power with bias and prejudice) (See also: Miller v. Todd April 2011, Lawlor v. Lawlor, 123 N.H. 163 166; Russman v. Russman, 124 N.H. 593, 597); and 5. Refused to correct a plain error of the court per NH Supreme Court Rule 16-A (Plain Error).
The Committee finds, similarly, that Manchester Judicial Branch Family Division Marital Master Jennifer Lemire:  1. Continued incorrect, confiscatory orders that led to the Petitioner’s serious financial damage; 2; Refused to properly hear regarding father’s inability to pay 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution; 3. Failed similarly to comply with NH RSA 461-A VI a (Parental Rights and Responsibilities) by ignoring properly filed Motions for modifications of parenting plan and modifications of support (NH Art. 35. The Judiciary; Tenure of Office); 4. Abused her judicial discretion and power with bias and prejudice per NH Supreme Court Rule 38 Code of Judicial Conduct; and 4. Failed to comply with NH RSA 461-A:6 Best Interests of the Child.
The Committee finds further that Manchester Judicial Branch Family Division Judge Edward B. Tenney: 1. Unlawfully incarcerated Petitioner per the 6th and 14th Amendments (equal protection) of the U.S. Constitution; 2. Wrongly equated ability to borrow with ability to pay, then unlawfully ordered a parent to obtain a loan (see Supreme Court Hicks v Feiock); 3. Assigned excessive bail conditions(equal to the amount owed and far higher than criminal offenders and in cash) placing Petitioner and his family in harm’s way contrary to the 8th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and Part 1 Art. 3 of the NH Constitution; 4. Failed to follow due process including not allowing a parent to provide proof or evidence of inability to pay; 5. Disregarded the equal submission of financial affidavits upon which to make proper judgment per NH Family Division Rule 1.30 (Access to financial information) and per Family Division Rule 2.16 (a) & (b) and NH RSA 546-A (Regarding Financial Affidavits, Uniform Civil Liability for Support); 6. Attempted to have Petitioner self incriminate by ordering him to complete a financial affidavit while being jailed and without access to his financial records at the time 5th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution; 7. Unreasonably restricted access to a copy of a contempt order before jailing a parent per NH Const. Art 15; and 8. Abuses of discretion and power with bias and prejudice per NH Constitution Art. 35, Code of Judicial Conduct 2.2 and 2.3.
The Committee also finds that Manchester Judicial Branch Family Division Judge John C. Emery failed to follow due process of law per the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution:  1. Denying a litigant the right to be heard despite several requests per NH Supreme Court Rule 38-2.6; 2. Denying the right of representation to Petitioner by failing to apprise him of such rights once contempt had been claimed per NH Const Part I, Art. 3; and 3. Failing to comply with NH RSA 461-A (Parental Rights and Responsibilities) when modifying parenting time.
The Committee finds, too, that Manchester Judicial Branch Family Division Guardian ad Litem Suzanne D. Decker:  1. Ignored multiple filed police reports by the Petitioner showing a pattern of multiple interferences with child custody; 2. Ignored or failed to contact key eyewitnesses; 3. Withheld evidence from the court of Petitioner being alienated from the children; 4. Unlawfully blocked access of Petitioner to communicate with his children; 5. Failed to uphold the ethics of GALs; and 6. Failed to protect the equal parenting provisions of New Hampshire including RSA 461-A: 2, RSA 461-A: 6: I (e) (f) (g) (i) (j), III, IV (a), VI, RSA 173-B: 1: I (b) (d) (g), RSA 631 :4: I (c) (d), RSA 633:1, RSA 631:2, RSA 633:3-a I (a) (b) II (a) (1) (2) III- a, RSA 644:4: I (a) (b) (c) (f), RSA 169-C: 3 II (c).
Recommendations
The Committee recommends the House:  1. Initiate a full investigation into this case to determine the extent of wrongdoings including noncompliance with the laws of New Hampshire by the involved officials; 2. Request that the GAL Board fully investigate the actions of GAL Suzanne D. Decker to determine the level and extent of wrongful acts in this case; 3. Introduce legislation to a) remove GAL’s “quasi judicial immunity” for misconduct, perjury, and willful neglect of Statutory Guidelines and, b) that all statements made to a court by a GAL be verified by evidence, documentation, and sworn affidavit; and to 4. Allow no incarceration for civil contempt or without findings of fact and disallowing  borrowing as a factor in assessing “ability to pay”; 5. Amend RSA 458 so that when child support percentages exceed those in Child Support Guidelines an opportunity to revisit the issue in court will be automatic; 6. Amend RSA 461-C:2 IV (c) making failure to supply financial affidavits a class B misdemeanor; 7. Place the language of Turner v Rogers (20110 into New Hampshire statutes; and 7. Re-introduce House Bill 591 to require that all courts properly follow all rules of evidence and that evidence be required for any motions that have any impact on the divorcing parties’ children. We also recommend a study of court practices regarding Article 15 rights and, as in a previous petition, a full investigation of the Family Division to determine the extent of and reasons for the repeated failures of that division to protect citizens’ constitutional rights and to follow statutes and court rules.

COMMITTEE for REDRESS of GRIEVANCES REPORTS

COMMITTEE for REDRESS of GRIEVANCES REPORTS | Kevin Avard for State Rep:


COMMITTEE for REDRESS of GRIEVANCES REPORTS

 COMMITTEE for REDRESS of GRIEVANCES REPORTS
The following reports are the result of committee hearings and deliberations on the petitions presented to it.  They are printed here for informational purposes.
PETITION # 2 grievance of Elena Katz, Arnold Grodman, and Their Daughter.  (Report filed 8/21/12)
MAJORITY
Grievance Founded with Recommendations.
Committee Majority Findings:
The Redress of Grievances Committee after listening to testimony and seeing supporting documentation finds that in the course of a long and protracted confrontation with the Timberlane Regional School District that began when the Petitioners sued the district in federal court for taking federal funds for a child being home schooled. First were unfounded allegations of child abuse by the school district which led the Petitioners to move to Massachusetts.  In the ensuing years, the Committee finds that the Petitioners suffered from a remarkable series of unacceptable actions from the office of the Rockingham County Attorney and the courts:  1. Prosecution under Interference with Custody (RSA 633:4) regarding a guardianship that arose out of the Child Protection Act (RSA 169-C) when RSA 633:4 was created specifically to enforce parenting plans under Parental Rights and Responsibilities (RSA 461-A) in the area of Annulment, Divorce and Separation (RSA 458);  2. Revisiting by county attorney of the same essential charges multiple times against Petitioners using only slight changes in the wording; 3. The use of an unfiled criminal complaint as evidence of an actual judgment in New Hampshire; 4. Use by the court of a nonexistent “felony judgment” claim to extradite family from Massachusetts; 5. Follow up arrest using a document whose numbers fail to correspond with New Hampshire’s numbering systems; 6. Contempt charges filed without specifying the nature of the contempt; 7. Dismissal by judge of the lawyers of Petitioners; 8. Knowing denial of counsel for Petitioners on false grounds:  that counsel had been refused when, in fact, they recused themselves; and 9. Disallowing of exculpatory evidence because “it did not prove his innocence.”  The Committee also found the wrongful filing of a criminal complaint by a police chief who subsequently admitted under oath that he had no direct knowledge of the facts of the “crime.”  Furthermore, the Committee finds that in placing the Petitioners’ daughter in the Crotched Mountain facility that their daughter was physically injured with broken bones and a torn earlobe, and that for the purpose of behavior management, the department in cooperation with Crotched Mountain increased their daughter’s dosage of the psychotropic drug, Abilify, from 5 mg/d to 30 mg/d when it is clearly contraindicated for her gender, age and medical condition (diabetes).  To effect this change, the department claimed medical decision-making authority by guardianship pursuant to a 170-C termination of parental rights in a sworn document committing sworn falsification (RSA 641:2).  Finally, as a consequence of the dosage of Abilify, their daughter suffered permanent kidney failure.
Recommendations
The Committee recommends introduction of legislation to:  1. Investigate what went wrong in this case leading to home schooling parents being so insistently and curiously hounded by a prosecutor on the flimsiest of grounds; 2. Clarify in any related RSAs the original intent that “parents” in RSA 461-A apply to divorce only and shall not include the Division for Children, Youth and Families (DCYF) issues; and 3. Request that the Attorney General investigate the involved police chief for false swearing.  The Committee also recommends that the State provide Petitioners’ daughter with health insurance under the State Group plan in compensation for injuries suffered while in State custody and as a consequence of the actions of employees of the State.  The Committee further recommends that the Attorney General be directed to investigate sworn falsification by employees of the Department of Health and Human Services, and wrongful filing of a criminal complaint by a police officer.  Vote 7-3.
Rep. Alfred P. Baldasaro for the Majority of the Committee
MINORITY
Unfounded
Committee Minority Findings:
The Petitioners, Elena Katz and Arnold Grodman, have a fragile and medically disabled daughter who is now a young woman in her early 20s. The Petitioners have been together as a couple throughout their daughter’s life.  Throughout her  life, the Petitioners have been involved in a variety of legal battles over their daughter’s medical care and education, in both state and federal court.
This Petition deals primarily with events which occurred between 2006 and 2011, following a dispute with the DCYF and the Timberlane Regional School District.  It is the opinion of the Minority that the Petitioners may have engaged in some unwise conduct during that time. For example, in 2007 they suddenly moved with their severely disabled daughter to Massachusetts just after, according to the State, she had been placed under DCYF guardianship.  This move kept the Petitioners’ daughter out of a court-ordered placement in a residential program at the Crotched Mountain School.  The Petitioners were eventually arrested in Massachusetts and extradited to New Hampshire, where they were charged with Interference with Custody and Contempt of Court. (The daughter was unharmed.)
Ms. Katz accepted a plea bargain in May 2010 and plead guilty to Contempt of Court. Mr. Grodman’s similar case is still pending.  The Interference with Custody charge against him was dismissed, after the Rockingham Superior Court ruled that RSA 633:4 did not apply to this case where the DCYF (which is not a person) had guardianship. He still faces charges of Contempt of Court.
The Minority failed to see any pattern of official malfeasance by the DCYF, the Rockingham County District Attorney’s Office, or the various law-enforcement agencies who worked on this case.  Also, the Minority does not believe that it was improper to bring the Interference with Custody charge: the judge’s ruling was based on a technical issue which was not necessarily obvious to the various officials involved in this case.  Indeed, the Minority recommends that a future legislature consider amending the Interference with Custody statute (RSA 633:4) to address cases of this sort.
Rep. Timothy Horrigan for the Minority of the Committee

Did Maine Child Protective Services (CPS) give children to Richard Decca the Wal-Mart child abductor???

Legally Kidnapped: Did Maine Child Protective Services (CPS) give children to Richard Decca the Wal-Mart child abductor???:

Note: This is from one of my dear, dear friends who wants to remain an anonymous source. 

We believe it and we want to know the truth!!

Richard Decca was the man who attempted to abduct a little girl from the Waterville, Maine Wal-Mart in 2006. Just prior to that, Richard Decca was arrested for unlawful sexual contact with a 1 year old in Waterville.

Richard Decca lived in Norridgewock. At his point he is traveling from Norridgewock to Waterville to find children to prey on. What would trigger that?

Any good Forensic Psychologist will tell you this man’s behaviors didn’t just start. He just started getting caught. Common sense tells you he escalated to “traveling” and “abduction” because he had no “easy access” to any other child or children.

So how many children did this disgusting man, Richard Decca have access too or in his care prior to this? Keep in mind he was 57 years old by this time. That’s a lot of time that could equal a lot of children.

Well, the word on the street is Foster care children. Kinship care and CPS ignoring the complaints about this man. And a Maine CPS, LSW forging documentation at the office that CPS was visiting these children and all was well until others in the community intervened. As we can only imagine by then it was too late. His sexual assaults and contact on any child or children he had easy access to where enough to keep him satisfied.

Re-elect Nashua's Fighter for Family Rights!

Cornerstone http://www.nhcornerstone.org/candidate-corner/ | Kevin Avard for State Rep:

Vote for Kevin September 11th,2012 in Nashua-Ward 1


Cornerstone http://www.nhcornerstone.org/candidate-corner/


Rep. Kevin Avard of Nashua Ward 1 (Hillsborough 28)

August 19, 2012
Rep. Kevin Avard is vying for one of three seats in a race with five candidates in Nashua Ward 1 (Hillsborough 28)He’s clearly a preferred candidate for Cornerstone in the district, with a 100 percent score on Cornerstone’s Families First Scorecard.
Rep. Kevin Avard said he was proudest of his role in passing CACR 26, which, if approved by the People this November, would amend Part 2, Article 73-a in the N.H. Constitution and restore some of the Legislature’s authority to approve administrative rules in the Judicial Branch. Back in 1978, Article 73-a was added and gave full autonomy to the courts to pass administrative rules that have “the force and effect of law.” This change led to rules that have become law without representation, Rep. Avard said.
Most notably, Judicial Branch Rule 1.2 allows the courts to waive all rules. This rule has been used in the family courts to waive the rules of evidence and allow hearsay evidence to be used against parents, Rep. Avard said. And Rule 1.9 gives the court discretion to deny appeals to the Supreme Court, despite the fact that the N.H. Constitution protects that right. When the same government body that interprets the N.H. Constitution is allowed to waive the constitution by passing a rule, it makes the body untouchable, Rep. Avard said. The constitutional amendment CACR 26 will make the Judicial Branch accountable to the people again by allowing the Legislature to pass laws that nullify these court rules, he said. Avard said if the amendment passes, he will file bills to do just that.
As a member of the recently revived Redress of Grievances Committee, Rep. Avard said he personally witnessed citizens who were comforted by finally having a place to turn to seek justice for the first time in years. One of his main priorities for the coming session will be maintaining the Redress of Grievances Committee, he said, but he will also introduce bills from ideas generated by people who testified in front of the committee this past session.
Among the issues still needing to be addressed, Rep. Avard said parents are currently not allowed to see the evidence against them when a Guardian Ad Litem is trying to keep their children away from them. The evidence is kept in a sealed envelope and given to the judge, and parents are not allowed to see it, despite the constitutional requirements that citizens have a right to face their accuser and see the evidence against them. Avard intends to file a bill to fix this problem, so parents’ constitutional rights will be restored. Additionally, Avard said he intends to introduce impeachment proceedings against the judges who have done things like this and work on a bill to remove immunity for judicial officials who misrepresent the truth, whether intentional or unintentional.

There is a implication that Mr. Youssef is doing something wrong, but in point of fact he and many others did ask representatives of the Redress and Grievances Committee to impeach judges, and many of them voted to do just that. I say that Ms. Timmins, who is said to be married to a NH Assistant Attorney General, is a bought-and-sold pawn of the establishment, the very same establishment that harms children and ignores the law........

Petition | The Governor of MA: RECALL COUNTY PROBATE AND FAMILY COURT JUDGE!

Petition | The Governor of MA: RECALL COUNTY PROBATE AND FAMILY COURT JUDGE! | Change.org:


OVER 100 DAYS MASSACHUSETTS CHILD CONTINUES TO HELD HOSTAGE BY COUNTY JUDGES
The county judges are misappropriating taxpayer dollars and state services by using Massachusetts DCF to detain this child for reasons other than intended by law; further these judges are in violation of Mass General Law 119, and have abused their power.
Massachusetts Mother appeals to Governor Deval Patrick, Massachusetts Health and Human Services Secretary Bigby, and Massachusetts Chief Justice of Probate and Family Court, Chief Carey; for the return of her six years daughter, who was unlawfully removed from the mother and in placed in the Department of Children and Families custody by a county Probate and Family court judge.  The removal of Alexiss from her mother was in violation of Massachusetts General Law 119 which give judges authority to remove a child from a home in the event of neglect and abuse.  However, the county judge used the law to remove the Alexiss because the mother refused to follow an order that placed the Alexiss in danger.
The county judge, in placing the Alexiss in DCF custody for reasons other than those stated by law has misappropriated state funds and services. The mother, in the past, filed a complaint with the Massachusetts Commission on Judicial Conduct, and a previous county judge in this case was disqualified from the case for child endangerment.  Since this time, current county judges in this case have continued to write unlawful orders that continue to deny the best interest of the Alexiss by forcing the mother to allow unsupervised visit with the biological father, who has a criminal record of sexual assault, rape, and kidnapping (Superior Court District Attorney Katherine Cappelli); recorded allegations of child molestation involving his stepdaughter; imprisonment for domestic violence; years of heroin use; discharge from the military for alcohol/drug rehabilitation failure; and who has mental health issues.
In the onset of this case, the disqualified county judge had ordered the mother to allow the child unsupervised overnight weekend visits with the father who was participating in a drug rehabilitation program and residing in a men’s half-way house.  The county judges denied the mother’s request for a home-study; alcohol/drug evaluation; mental health assessment to ensure unsupervised visits were appropriate; and further denied Alexiss a Guardian Ad Litem.  The biological father who is from Baltimore Maryland was in Massachusetts to participate in a drug rehabilitation program when he was charged in Superior court with sexual assault, rape, and kidnapping of a Kingston woman.
Currently, Alexiss has been in a foster-home for over 45 days, and has only been allowed to see the mother and family one hour a week, with the weekly hour visit commencing three weeks ago.   The Mother states during the weekly one hour visits, the Alexiss’s responses are depressed for the first 15-30 minutes; and the visits end in tear jerking heartbreak, with Alexiss and mother in tears.
Further, the county judges continue to hold Alexiss hostage in order to buy time to wiggle their way out of violations of the Mother’s rights under the Servicemen’s Civil Relief Act.
PLEASE HELP GET CHILD HOME, CALL Governor Deval Patrick (617) 725-4005, Massachusetts HHS Sec Bigby (617) 573-1600, Massachusetts Department of Children and Families, Commissioner Angelo McClain (617) 748-2000, and Massachusetts Probate and Family Court chief Justice Paula Carey  (617) 788-6600.
