On July 3, 2018, the day before Independence Day, ROGERS TOWERS partner ELLEN AVERY-SMITH, on behalf of Texas billionaire DONALD R. HORTON and St. Augustine landowner PIERRE THOMPSON, presented false testimony that bald eagle nest number SJ019 on Fish Island is "abandoned."
The bald eagle is our national symbol, no longer endangered but still a threatened species, legally protected by two federal criminal laws, the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act and Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
In fact, during the 2017-2018 season, the "abandoned" bald eagle nest was shown to be an active bald eagle nest, with a nesting pair and babies.
Unrebutted testimony from our Matanzas Riverkeeper, Jen Lemberk, St. Johns County Audubon Society President Amy Koch, Audubon Eagle Watch expert Rhonda Lovett and eco-tour guide Adam Morley ALL verified the presence of eagles, with time-stepped photos (17MAR2018 13:15; 13:17; 13:19) admitted into evidence by PZB:
At the July 3, 2018 St. Augustine Planning and Zoning Board meeting, D.R. HORTON presented materially false and misleading testimony that the bald eagle nest was "abandoned."
I have filed a 10b-5 complaint with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) re: securities fraud over the perjured testimony of Ryan Carter on D.R. HORTON's behalf.
Come speak out at the August 7, 2018 St. Augustine City Commission meeting.
Yes, D.R. HORTON's expert lied about the presence of Bald Eagles on Fish Island at the July 3, 2018 St. Augustine PZB meeting. Next meeting: August 7, 2018, 2 PM, Alcazar Room, St. Augustine City Hall, 75 King Street.
