Welcome to Shed Light! This site is an informational resource for anyone who feels like their civil rights have been violated because of the ways in which they are viewed by society, a group or individual. This site came to fruition when Ed Furlong felt that his rights had been trampled upon by the local selectmen from his home town of Bartlett, New Hampshire, and a federal government employee from the Forest Service; these officials working within their respective departments to conspire together, have failed their oaths of office and like many government officials before them have committed improprieties and/or went beyond the threshold of whats expected of them and committed criminal acts against Ed Furlong: violating his civil rights and civil due process law guaranteed Ed by the US Constitution. The Reader will find out through examining the text within these pages that our civil rights as they were once scribed by our Founding Fathers are seriously endangered and threatened as a would be rare species...(see "Bartlett Corruption Suit" or "The Struggle" tabs above to learn more)
In the past, Ed experienced periods of homelessness and alcoholism. He had a series of setbacks in his life prior to re-entering society as a sober member, or an alcoholic in full recovery for use of a better term. Over time, Ed was able to overcome many of the hardships he faced (Through AA) and now he is a successful business owner and a productive member of society. Ed feels that the actions by the selectmen, specifically Doug Garland, are a malicious attempt to stifle Ed's business pursuits, and oppress Ed as a businessman and human being, and are based on personal vendettas due to Ed's past reputation as a former homeless man and Hobo,...but now a successful businessman. These overt machinations against Ed are all attributable to Doug Garland's jealousy and arrogant behavior as a selectman, and the continued acrimony and competition between Ed and selectman Garland's competing cabin rental businesses (ie., Abenaki Inn & Cabins, inc., and Mountain Home Cabins,LLc). Through his selectman's official capacity and power Garland has deliberately made Ed's quality of life decline using his selectman's office as a vendetta tool to accomplish his wrong doing against Ed; to combat this situation, Ed has filed a civil rights action (US42:1983) lawsuit and plans to file a class action lawsuit later this year regarding the "right of way" or the class VI road that has been attached to Ed's historical lodging property ( Gateway Inn est., 1876) from 130 years ago that selectman Garland and Bartlett recreation director Annette Libby has blocked off. The selectmen, specifically Garland, and Annette Libby has broken many RSA/law(s) but the New Hampshire Attorney General's office is slow to act because of the ongoing case they are already pursuing against former Bartlett selectman Jon Tanquay(see story...Hobo Ed's Editorial page). Doug Garland has, along with recreation director Annette Libby, maliciously and arbitrarily gated & locked the class VI road without electoral vote in direct violation of RSA 231:43, that is breaking the law as written! Coupled with that these officials have erected a six foot high fence blocking Ed's access to his lodging cabins in violation of RSA 236:16 & RSA 236:15. Ed calls this a "Revenge Fence" see RSA236:15
If you or a family member or friend ever used this public access point/right of way in the past to gain access to the White Mtn.,National Forest from this location which lies to the south side and behind these two properties at the rear (map 5RT 302 / lot O23LOO & map 5RT302 / lot O2OLOO) your rights have been denied as well. This is a public throughway and class VI road dissecting Ed's estate and the Black Fly field, and now your right to access the National Forest from this access point has been arbitrarily blocked, by Locked Gate; these rogue town officials are libel. Because they're angry at Ed for whatever reason doesn't matter, you,...a Bartlett Citizen shouldn't have to pay the price with being deprived access to the WMNF because of this one sided attack against Ed by these officials; you could be entitled to financial compensation under New Hampshire Law.
