I am 66 years old. Lynn and I, married for 36 years, have 4 daughters: L-R Natalie, Natasha, Phylicia and Olivia. Natalie got her masters at Emory and Henry College and is presently teaching at Sun Valley Christian Indian Middle School in Arizona. Natasha graduated from Bridgewater College and works at Breckenridge Ski Resort. Phylicia works for a doctor in Philadelphia and Olivia is in her senior year at Davis and Elkins College. I have lived in West Virginia my entire life with the exception of the first six months as my father was attending RCA Electronics school in Cleveland, Ohio.
Lynn teaches math and science at Pickens School, the smallest K-12 public school in the state of West Virginia. I received a BA degree in Physics—General Science from West Liberty State College and a Masters in Educational Computing from the University of Charleston and am now substituting for Randolph County School after 39 years of teaching. I am presently serving as Vice-Chairman of the Constitution Party of West Virginia.
I own and operate Century Photo, a photography and video business which I started in 1972. I am the media producer and archives webmaster for Call To Decision Ministries, a non-denominational Christian ministry. Call To Decision is a central part of our family's life. We have produced eight seminars with world-renowned speakers from Maine to Alaska and from Canada to Texas. The ministry has an extensive outreach across the nation and around the world. We have produced over 500 hour-long Bible Studies, Current Events and Christian News and Views programs of which several hundred have appeared on Elkins/ Randolph County cable television. The weekly show that I produce presently airs on Randolph County cable television at 8:30 P.M. on Thursday nights.
The Call To Decision fellowship is committed to studying, understanding, and living a Christian life as outlined in the Holy Bible. When one is committed to Christian principles, one often finds oneself at odds in a decaying society. I have been led to take several stands which garnered national attention.
On December 24, 2000, the West Virginia Supreme Court ruled that I be re-instated as a school teacher following my dismissal for refusing to enforce students wearing barcoded IDs at Elkins High School. The Rutherford Institute provided my defense on grounds of religious freedom.
On August 8, 2008, Pastor Butch Paugh, his brother Richard, and I became the first holders of non-biometric West Virginia driver's licenses. After an eight year ordeal of petitioning and refusing to surrender biometric facial images for state-and-beyond criminal database entry, the Governor, Joe Manchin, directed the West Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles to accommodate our convictions. The state simply stores a printed copy of our driver's license in Charleston.

The driver's license situation described above has changed dramatically requiring me and others to respond. Governor Tomlin rescinded the agreement that had been made by the Manchin administration and we now find ourselves having to fight again for our Christian beliefs. You can view our "Tea Party at the DMV" above on this website.
A developing situation involves the unconstitutional infringement of our right to protect ourselves as enumerated in 2nd Amendment. We must not tolerate any movement in this regard under any pretext. I addressed the Randolph County Commissioners and the Randolph County Sheriff on January 17, 2013. This address is posted on YouTube. (See the link below) Mr. Mark Bonner, former President of the Planning Commission, addresses and precedes me on the same subject. Mark and I were members of the Randolph County Planning Commission. The members of this advisory group to the County Commission felt that our number one priority was the protection of citizen's property rights. We felt this conviction led to the eventual elimination of the planning commission with a cease and desist order. The link is:
I credit Jesus and the Call To Decision fellowship for the spiritual foundation, my parents for a good solid upbringing, my family for support, and the founders of this country for the opportunity, for any success I have had or will ever have in the future.
I am presently the 2016 Constitution Party candidate for Governor. I plan to bring to the public the constitutional issues that have been ignored and trampled. Our form of government is designed for and will only work within the realm of our Christian heritage and beliefs. That message must be made clear with no compromise. If the Lord is not the foundation, the house will fall. Duty is ours and results are the Lord's. Central to my campaign is the unlawful incorporation of churches in West Virginia. See Article 6, Section 47. This rule of law issue was filed in the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals. Churches are not to be yoked to the government and are actually non-taxable not needing a tax exemption as commonly believed. We cannot expect a moral society and muzzled churches.
The Constitution Party of West Virginia determined that Mr. Obama was never constitutionally eligible to be President as he is not a natural born citizen. A person cannot be both a natural born and naturalized citizen, PERIOD! He says his father was not a citizen of the United States. Therefore he was never a bonified president and all legislation or orders that he signed were dead on arrival.
Both major parties have failed to properly represent the citizenry. It is time for everyone to make soul searched decisions. I have made mine. Have you made yours?
I serve God, family, and country in that order. The New World Order is an anathema to everything I believe in. That is what motivates me to pursue political office.
