Railroaded out of office? No member of the City Aldermen has ever contacted or talked to me in regard to any of the issues I am about to address. Roger Estlack and Doug Kidd successfully and intensely lobbied both the City Aldermen and CEDC members and railroaded 2 valuable volunteers out of office. If there was a problem with me, all parties involved should have given me an opportunity to speak to their concerns. Truth – sometimes it’s hard to find, but at the very least, we ought to try! Hearing both sides of the story is a start. It is my opinion that the City Aldermen were misled in their decision to vote to uphold the bylaws of the CEDC and disallow members of the county to serve on the CEDC by Roger and Doug. Amending the bylaws and articles of incorporation of both the City of Clarendon and the CEDC to MEET STATE LAW would have been much less difficult and costly than the council was led to believe. The Clarendon Chamber of Commerce was recently able to successfully amend their articles of incorporation – Allowing CEDC board members who reside in the COUNTY to serve has long been policy of the Clarendon City Aldermen. I was appointed twice by the City Aldermen to serve on the CEDC board. Steve Hall and Sherol Shelton Johnston are two county resident members who also served our community very well. Jack Craft and I have both been pro‐active members of the CEDC taking matters before the board seriously and prudently – knowing that your tax dollars are important to the future growth and benefit the long term success of our great community. 1. In their meeting on/about March 10, 2016 the City Alderman requested CEDC President Terri Floyd to attend their meeting and she was asked specifically about dissension on the CEDC board as well as the bylaws – she answered their questions and a vote was called to send the bylaws of the CEDC back to the CEDC to amend/or not and send their findings to the City Alderman. Neither Jack Craft nor I was invited to attend this meeting. 2. In a surprise move, the City Aldermen voted on March 24, 2016 to uphold the bylaws of the CEDC without amendment or WITHOUT allowing the CEDC board to present their findings as voted on in their March 10th meeting. DISSENSION or the belief that there is dissension is at the root of my removal. However, I don’t believe I ever cast a dissenting vote on a matter before the CEDC board in the past 3 years. In the alternative, when the CEDC board decided to hire me to create and implement a new website in August 2016, Roger Estlack and Doug Kidd cast dissenting votes and it has been a bone of contention with Roger ever since. The real dissension ‐ as the CEDC Vice President, I placed these items/questions on the CEDC agenda February 1, 2016 that I believed were important to the function and transparency of the CEDC Board: • Why has Secretary Estlack taken over the Treasurer’s duties and responsibilities without proper removal of the elected Treasurer, Bill Stavenhagen and election of Secretary Estlack to the Treasurers’ position? There was no board vote to remove an elected Treasurer at any point nor was there any discussion. Secretary Estlack just took over the bookkeeping after the departure of ED Chandra Eggemeyer and for me that presents a problem. We were NOT getting the financials before the meetings for review and then at the meeting being presented with the financials to approve without sufficient time to review them and we weren’t seeing invoices. • Why does Secretary Estlack maintain a private email account for all correspondence regarding CEDC business and matters before the CEDC board? As a board, since I have served, in the absence of an Executive Director, we have never seen any correspondence relating to the business of the CEDC. The only information we are given is as Secretary Estlack chooses to present to us at the board meetings. In talking with the State Comptroller’s office about this issue prior to asking it to be an agenda item, I was told that this should be a significant concern to the City – it could be costly in the future trying to recover the passwords necessary to be in compliance with FOIA, the Open Meetings Act and TML rules. In bringing it to the attention of the CEDC Board, I had hoped to create transparency where there is none and alleviate a future problem. • Why is Secretary Estlack running the appointed CEDC Board as if he were the acting paid Executive Director of the organization when he is not the Executive Director? There are Roberts Rules of Order/Parliamentary Procedure that the CEDC Board should be following in the absence of a paid director and these rules are not being followed. In the absence of a paid director, the executive committee should meet (properly posted prior to each meeting) to discuss items to be included on any future agenda – not just Secretary Roger Estlack– and when convenient, discussed with President Terri Floyd, but NEVER, EVER were the other executive committee members included in any discussions of matters of business before the board. I sought to have that changed. Many of the methods I employed to ‘advertise’ our community were both successful and inexpensive. For example: Roger told us in the Feb. 1, 2016 CEDC board meeting that the Clarendon Chamber of Commerce had paid The Clarendon Enterprise $2,000 for the exclusive rights to the “Welcome Guide”, why, YOU MIGHT ASK…$80 spent correctly on a Facebook promotion on the Clarendon Chamber’s page could have yielded quantifiable results. I object to the fact that all of Roger’s related businesses benefit financially from nearly every single CEDC grant or Hot Funds request we authorized ‐ he doesn’t want to find a less expensive or better way to advertise. Summary: By bringing all of these issues to the CEDC Board it created an awareness of the problems within the CEDC and (in my opinion) threatened the control Roger Estlack wields over the CEDC and its’ finances. He controls without restraint or transparency or inclusion of the board. Jack Craft and I were actively making a difference and stimulating the economy to the benefit of our entire community. We have done nothing but support the decisions of the CEDC without remuneration, with the one exception of my being paid to create a new website. I have never promoted my own business interests. Truth – sometimes it’s hard to find, but at the very least, we ought to try! Hearing both sides of the story is a start. Most truly, Roseann Mayer (Although not part of this letter, I have included the Agenda for the CEDC Board meeting and the following minutes of that meeting – note there is no mention of the nearly 2 hour discussion the CEDC board had about these items, only the words, ‘no action’.)

Occultism as a factor in civilization :
A Nihilistic Observation on Ran Lawson Jiang January 15, 2015 TA: Isabelle Carbonell Section D (11:45am) Hoile, Christopher, “‘King Lear’ and Kurosawa's ‘Ran’: Splitting, Doubling, Distancing,” Pacific Coast Philology 22 1/2 (1987). Penn State University Press: 29–34, accessed January 15, 2016, doi:10.2307/1316655. Hoile compares and evaluates the similarities and differences between Shakespeare’s King Lear and Kurosawa’s Ran . Through comparing the plots of the two epic works, Hoile thoroughly presents to whom are interested in discovering the relationship between the two work, such as the character settings and the similaryetdifferent plot structure as he points out that “the test of the three arrows replaces the lovetest in King Lear, but it is not equivalent to it” (p.30). While a majority of the articles found during the research focus on addressing how Kurosawa’s film is similar to King Lear — with detailed analysis of each characters in Ran to their correspondents in King Lear — Hoile brings up something different that makes his work stands out among the rest of the analytical essays, the cinematography of the film. He, however, talks about the cinematography with only a sentence commenting that the camera is “an impassive and literally distant observer” (p.29). Although his comment should include a more elaborate analysis from the cinematographic aspect, the short comment establishes a brand new idea that Ran carries a nihilistic tone throughout the entire film. This notion is also addressed in Roger Ebert’s updated review1 published on his blog in October 1, 2000. Roger Ebert, “Ran Movie Review & Film Summary (1985),” Roger Ebert (blog), October 1, 2000, http://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/greatmovieran1985 The notion of Nihilism brought up by Hoile receives a more detailed and interesting interpretation in film critic Roger Ebert’s review. Ebert writes: Roger Ebert, “Ran Movie Review & Film Summary (1985),” Roger Ebert (blog), October 1, 2000, http://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/greatmovieran1985. There are two entries of review by Roger Ebert, the first was published in 1985 and the updated was in 2000. 1 Lawson Jiang 1 He [Kurosawa] uses several static cameras to film the action, cutting between them; because his cameras don't dart and whirl, we are not encouraged to think of ourselves as participants but as gods, observing, taking the long view here and then a closeup look. (One shot, of a man holding his own severed arm, no doubt inspired the similar shot in Steven Spielberg’s “Saving Private Ryan.”) Ebert’s observation well matches with Hoile’s view on cinematography; omniscient yet impassive. Ebert argues that the spectators play the role of witness instead of participant through static and medium shots. During the fiveminuteslong battle sequence, a soldier holding his mutilated arm serves as one of the example, whereas Taro and Saburo’s sudden deaths after the two separate battles should be marked as the notable agents representing Kurosawa’s nihilistic thoughts. Taro, who is on his horse, filmed from a lower angle and placed in the middle of the frame, is suddenly killed by an arrow. Taro’s sudden death shocks those who presume him to be the figure of victory after the cruel battle. At the end of the film, Saburo embraces the same destiny just like his eldest brother — killed by an arrow — when riding the horse with his father, Hidetora. Hidetora dies of heart attack soon after he discovers his son’s death. To those who are used to dramatic and the socalled meaningful ending (bad guys fail and die, for example), Ran ends with a tragic yet boring scene. The bads die, so as the good ones. However, Kurosawa’s casual depiction of the characters’ deaths should be considered as an astonishing representation of nihilism. In the nihilistic sense, one should understand and expect that there is no good or bad nor there is meaningful ending for an individual. Death is not worth to be dramaticized. Therefore, the constant use of steady, medium shots and the omitting of closeups in critical moments (such as the death scene) provide a godlike role to the spectators. Yet, a godlike role provides a limited perspective to the spectators that lacks the ability to predict what happens Lawson Jiang 2 next. Instead of predicting what will happen, the spectators can do little but witnessing the incidents on screen. Though the test of the three arrows emphasizes “the breaking of a bond not between the father and his sons but the bond between the sons themselves2”, once the bond between the sons breaks, so does the bond between the father and his sons. Nobody can help but to watch the whole family collapses all because of the sons’ greed that drives them to divide their father’s “spoils like dogs tearing at a carcass.” In the end, the nihilistic reading of Ran is a story about an old lord decides to abdicate which triggers a series of catastrophes, eventually lead to a chaotic3 dividing and the downfall of his clan. Mitsuhiro Yoshimoto, Kurosawa: Film Studies and Japanese Cinema (AsiaPacific : culture, politics, and society) (Durham, NC: Duke University Press, 2000), Chapter 28. Yoshimoto comments Kurosawa as a “‘magnificent yet tragic genius’ who makes a gargantuan effort to present dynamic and perfect images on the screen4” due to the “extreme generalization and abstraction” of Ran . Yoshimoto, just like Ebert and Hoile, holds a similar observation: The scarcity of closeups and the extensive use of long shots render even principal characters abstract figures and, by preventing the spectators’ identification with them, create the sense of detachment that positions the spectators as distant observers of a drama of massive destruction. Sue, Jiro’s wife, is supposedly beautiful, yet without a closeup of her face, the spectators are not allowed to judge whether there is any validity in the statement asserting her beauty. Hoile, Christopher, “‘King Lear’ and Kurosawa's ‘Ran’: Splitting, Doubling, Distancing,” Pacific Coast Philology 22 1/2 (1987). Penn State University Press: 29–34, accessed January 15, 2016, doi:10.2307/1316655. Hoile 3 The title of the film, Ran , means “chaos” in Japanese. 4 Masumura Yaszo, “Sodai ni shite hiso na tensai,” in Kurosawa Akira shusei, vol 1, 626. Originally published in Kinema junpo, part 2 (May 1974). 2 Lawson Jiang 3 Yoshimoto believes that Kurosawa’s focus on decor and sets “transforms the film into a transparent surface without any depth… without any illusion of psychological depth.” Consequently, Ran , in his perspective, is a film with mere visual surface that lacks detailed depiction of the characters. What makes a generic commentary on a film is to comment with a notion of “indepth portraying of character(s) makes a good movie,” which is coincidentally similar to the belief that superhero films ought to be packaged with a dark tone that expose the superhero’s dark side due to the commercial success of the Dark Knight Trilogy5. The idea of “darker tone means a more mature plot means a better film” triggers a flood of superhero productions with a universal tone in recent years, which has formularized the taste of the audience to appreciate only grimmer films. Similarly, the compulsive belief of determining a film by only the character depiction eliminates the possibility of reading a film with an alternative philosophical doctrine. Ran could be less comprehensive in characters as Yoshimoto notes; however, it is a masterpiece in representing nihilism as it conveys a strong sense of helplessness of being a mere observer. Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy , in which consisted of Batman Begins (2005), The Dark Knight (2008), and The Dark Knight Rises (2012), emphasizes the selfexploration and change of Batman (played by Christian Bale) from an ordinary millionaire to a hero enforcing vigilante justice. The commercial success of the series establishes a new genre of films; superhero movies. The dark tone of the trilogy, therefore, has been seen and adapted as a model of superhero movies by the production companies. Superhero movies with darker tone has become more welcomed in recent years, such as Iron Man 3 (2013), Man of Steel (2013), Captain America: Civil War (2016) and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016).
