Lawyers for Nexus CEO Jim D'Angelo have threatened to file a
defamation lawsuit against Hannabelle, directing her to remove The
Mille Lacs News and
from the Internet and to stop talking about the multi-million dollar
corporation and its president who for the past six months have insisted upon
forcing a $10 million multi-complex sex offender institutional commercial
facility into the quiet rural residential neighborhood where she has lived
peacefully for the past thirty years. Hannabelle, a retired, college
music professor, performer, orchestra conductor, and composer who has
struggled with serious chronic and disabling illness for the past several
years received the correspondence while hospitalized for a recent relapse
brought on by the stress of fighting to save her neighborhood from the
clutches of NEXUS, their invading 94 convicted sex offenders and their
The threatening letter came as no surprise to Hannabelle, who
was well-aware of the lawyers snooping on the Mille Lacs News website
as well as daily visits by NEXUS.
"The whole thing is ridiculous," said Hannabelle. "Jim
D'Angelo defamed himself with all the lies he's been telling. All I've done
is called him on it. Just like he doesn't want to accept his responsibility
to pay property taxes, he refuses to accept responsibility for his own bad
behavior and lack of character. He blames me for making him look bad when
actually, he's made himself look bad. In my opinion, he's an arrogant bully
no different from Larry Milton, Bill Hill, Bob Mickus, Mark Loch, and Jerome
Kryzer. All of these people are self-serving bullies. Its pretty pathetic.
If D'Angelo wants to take me to court, that's fine with me. I'll look
forward to it. I don't get out much these days..."
Even in poor health, Hannabelle insists she won't give in to
NEXUS or the city of Onamia but will continue to fight, even long after the
institution is built. "What they're doing to us is wrong. Go to their
website. Read their mission statement. Then look how they are treating us.
Look at what they are doing to us. NEXUS regurgitates all the nice buzz
words, all the pretty propaganda. Its all a bunch of hooey. I can't believe
that the entire town isn't absolutely enraged by what these unethical
bastards are trying to pull. Obviously NEXUS has fooled a lot of people for
a long time. In the old days, people used to hang horse thieves. Now they
give them property tax abatement."
