Re: “A Doggone Drag

We are all doing this for the Akita Adoption and Rescue Foundation, a 501C-3 non profit and a Kansas licensed shelter, though we look at it a bit more as a sanctuary, not only for the dogs, but the wildlife on our 80 acres as well. Sadly, we are the only licensed SHELTER in Osage County. You don't want to know what they call animal control. Our event is an eclectic four day music and camping festival that is scheduled for September 20-23 2007 benefiting the AARF Sanctuary which is located on the 81 acre farm that is home to all the rescued animals and their friends and caretakers, Randy Long, Suzie Long and Kendra Olson at the Akita Adoption and Rescue Foundation. This is a multi-faceted, pet-friendly all ages event designed to raise awareness of crucial animal welfare issues as well as, hopefully raising much needed funds for the dogs. Dogstock has become an exciting and much anticipated community event each festival. Everyone comments on the peaceful, happy vibe. One of the main goals of AARF is to raise community awareness of this and other rescue groups' efforts and to highlight the availability of healthy animals looking for good homes that are in shelters and rescues. Saving a life is a pretty cool thing to do. Far more animals can be saved through education than all the hands on work put together though and the universal language of music is what we put our faith in to uplift hearts and minds. Animal lovers are invited to bring their lucky dog to the festival, however all pets must be spayed/neutered and have a current vaccination record and all children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. As an aside I would note we feed 800 lbs of premium kibble per week along with 10 gallons of freshly cooked jambalaya each day. We are currently caring for 90 dogs, a rescued abused elderly horse, a pony and a rescued abused parrot along with the most unique "pride" of ferrel kitties you've ever seen. Though we rescue more Akitas than not, we have many mixes as well as some horribly neglected and abused dogs dropped off in the middle of the night. It warms our hearts to see how these dogs blossom under our care as we work on their rehabilitation and resocialization. We also specialize in special needs dogs and older dogs. These are some of the most rewarding relationships we develop. We have stories that are so wonderful including an elderly Akita we adopted to a family with a seriously epileptic child. The dog started predicting his seizures and getting help! Before he succumbed to old age Jake had "cured" the boy of his seizures. Other stories include folks who adopted a dog one day and the next were protected from intruders. Dogs give us unconditional love and when we allow 8 to ten million to be killed yearly because they were inconvenient that is unforgivable. Endless puppymill breeding in the midwest along with some real lunatic backyard breeders are perpetuating this situation along with owners who don't take their responsibilities seriously. Because we are rural, we have few volunteers and fewer donors, so Dogstock will hopefully become a major source of fundraising. It sure has helped provide a voice for the voiceless as music is the universal language; even with dogs! ASK ABOUT SINGLE DAY ADMISSIONS!

Re: “A Doggone Drag

Joshua, Eric Noble's cohort in the Loyal family met me once. He was never in charge of this festival in any way. He also knows only what noble told him, and noble has a different story for everyone. Mr. Conostan implies my wife and I have been convicted of some crimes. Entirely bogus. We have serious credit difficulties since both of us have been repeatedly victims of catastrophic illness which has a domino effect in our system of credit.

Sworn testimony from our bonded, licensed security is no rumor. Other eye witnesses are documenting what they witnessed, not what anyone told them. We are very proud of what we have done with homeless and abused dogs as well as other animals. To see mr conaston spread outright lies about our horse is troubling. His ankle and hoof were destroyed by his owner when he was a valuable race horse in Texas for the insurance money. We rescued him 8 years ago. He is 26, is on special feed, sees the farrier every six weeks and sees the vet several times a year. It is very sad when a person turns the good others do into a mockery.

Mr. Knauft has been accurate to a fault. He also knows it is mr noble who tried to use our event to outdo Brett Moseman at Waka. You want to check into things? See why noble no longer works at waka. Enough bullshit! I have dogs to pet.

Re: “A Doggone Drag

All this name calling got me curious. I always do my own background checks on my potential employees and people I am about to allow to run up bills on me. So I decided to use some of the tools to look at Mr. Randy Long and Mr. Eric D. Noble. I only got to the first step in my checks before I had the information I needed. You can get the particulars yourself as I wish not to make myself guilty of liable as I believe others may have already done here.

You can check this out yourself, heres how I came to my conclusions.

Goto: http://www.courts.mo.gov/casen... Enter in the name search Noble, Eric. Look at Eric David Noble's convictions. Then do the same for Randy, Long (maybe even search Suzie also). The entrys for Mr. Long maybe old. But he has not lived/worked in Missouri for quite a while as the article mentions.

Do the same thing in Kansas' Appellate Court. http://judicial.kscourts.org:7780/pls/coa2/clerks_office.request_case Note: At least some of Kansas City circuit is 16. Mr. Noble's area is 14 and 18. Just to help you narrow it down.

Unfortunately you cannot search Kansas Circuit Courts without paying money to the Kansas.gov website. It's only $1 a search, but I really don't care enough to spend any money searching further. Maybe someone else wants to drop a couple bucks if they are interested. After all searching the Missouri courts provided me with the information I needed to make my judgment.

I'm a man of science. I am not interested in hearsay or someones claims of what 'bonded security said.' There is plenty of facts in the public record for me to examine. I will believe what the courts tell me. No need to call names and say 'he said, she said' there are facts on record.

My conclusion... Mr. Long would not be allowed to charge anything with me, CASH ONLY PLEASE. Mr. Noble would not be allowed to deliver my dog to the vet. Mr. Noble, please slow down. You might save your life or someone else's.

Thanks for reading my 'opinion'. But, dont take my word for it. DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH!

Love, Peace and Rock & Roll for the masses.

Re: “A Doggone Drag

Randy, your name calling is not going to help your cause. Try to handle this with more respect than you handle your bands and your bills. Did you ever let Noble see the budget for this event? NO! Not once, you told him it was your festival when asked about budget. You were right it is your festival, now take responsibility.

As for the bands that Noble brought to the table, there were over a 100 and they averaged around $300 each. You paid your acts way too much. I dare you to say how much you paid some of your favs that brought no more than your friends out.

Your paid security didn't even wake up when I drove past and honked good night, after working one of my 4 18 hours shifts for your festival for nothing. But I am sure you don't think my part was important. GARAJ MAHAL would not have shown up to finish your fest, if I hadn't talked to them and made them comfortable in a bad situation. YOUR sound crew was fighting at the main stage, on top of all the $$ problems that were arising. I WAS THE ONLY PERSON IN CONTROL OF YOUR FESTIVAL SUNDAY NIGHT, YOU WERE NOT TO BE FOUND!

This festival went bad, but Randy you have made it so much worse. Just to save yourself... The bad checks were a bad idea, now admit it and everyone will help you. Good karma will come your way.

You may love dogs, but humans are another story!

Re: “A Doggone Drag

We have bonded secuity who handed Noble thousands that never came here. We have numerous witnesses to Noble and his minions scalping tix, etc. He are a con man and a thief. That's why he doesn't work for Wakarusa any more. If anyone wants to check on the facts contact me and I can refer you to the proper folks. Noble is anything but noble. He is an egomaniac who talks shit and brings staff who wreck golf carts on hallucinagenics, stay drunk when they're supposed to be working, run over dogs and more and more.

Mr. Noble might be surprised what the legal system may have in store for him. As to comments, you post lies and I will post names and numbers of bonded security and others that verify his larceny and malfeasance as well as the numbers.. By the way, Noble was fully aware of our situation a year in advance. All this feigned surprise is just more bullshit!

He was aware of the fact he had to bring in sponsors to paty for his clusterfuck of stages. Again talked a big line and did nada. The one sponsor he brought he neve paid us the fee from Again we have many more witnesses than you might imagine. It was clear this was a benefit for a dog shelter. Instead of working under those terms he tried to out waka waka, and through sheer greed destroyed everything we've been doing for thirteen years! Anyone that Noble booked Noble should have paid. Either that, or he should quit pretending to be a promoter. Noble, I'll see you in court!

Re: “A Doggone Drag

We do know close to the count on attendance, between 3,600, and 4,000. Lots of the campers rarely came out of the camping area. I agree with Rev. that the tent he played in was jammed, but at the same time he was playing on Sat. Commander Cody had right at 700 people on the main stage. I felt Rev. should have been on the main stage. If you have not checked out the Revs. band do it, they are great. Mr. Long will I feel make good on the checks that did not clear. I am out a large sum of money that I paid in deposits to some of the bands in fact one of them did not play. Hey, let's face it way too many bands for the fifth year, making the cost too much. Let's see what happens over the next couple of months. Mr. Long has always honored his debts. Let's all go forward, and hope for the best.

Re: “A Doggone Drag

I am not saying that Randall Long was not somewhat at fault for the problems that came about, but I can asssure you that selling comp tickets that were left at the gate to be given to some people that were arriving that was suppose to receive them, is that something that was suppose to be done? Don't worry witnesses saw the money not being delivered to the proper person. The bands that did not play, and did not show-up was because deposits were not available for them, and if you noticed on the posters, and brochures it plainly stated that artists times and schedule were subject to change. Let's face it my opinion is that the event grew to fast as far as numbers of bands, but after all was said and done, I do believe that most patrons were very much happy with the event. The comment about taking the lady back to her campsite, I also took her back several times. If DogStock happens again in Melvern, many people will be in support of it, and the crowds will grow. Hopefully this weeks event at Lake Perry will help pay off some of the debt. Go see Melvin Seals.

Re: “A Doggone Drag

I played the event, got handed a rubber check by Randy Long, and I can tell you this...

There were not even 1000 people there. We did our part. The sound and light crew at our stage said we had the biggest crowd of the whole event. From our perspective it was a great show, but we are talking about hundreds - not thousands of people. I don't know where these crazy numbers are coming from. No one stole from these folks. They just screwed up. Randy should stand up and take it like a man. I don't know what arrangement Long had with Noble, but I can tell you this. It is always the fault of the person holding the cash. When ticket sales weren't good 6 weeks prior to this, then Long should have pulled the event. Usually a festival of this type has expenses covered by sponsor money, and ticket sales are gravy.

Also - Putting on a festival that doesn't make money is not a crime, but writing bad checks is.

Re: “A Doggone Drag

Wow, really sounds to me that there is alot of blame being tossed around without any kind of proof to back up claims (not hearsay, PROOF???). That equates to rumors, possible slander or lible, which is what I believe we are witnessing here.

I can tell you a few things that I personally witnessed. (And the great thing is I'm in no way vested in this event,) I was just there for the music, good times and people. Which, BTW, the lineup at Dogstock was good, but where was Bernie Worrell, Particle, Ivan Neville, and some of the other groups that I came to see who were advertised but not present?

First off, as far as Mr. Noble cruising around on a golf cart smiling and waving to people. Sure he did do that, seeing him working as hard as he was that weekend was a reminder to me of the people behind the scenes who make these events so special for weekenders like myself. Why is that wrong? How about driving the pregnant woman with kids that I witnessed Mr. Noble escort back to her camp because the heat had gotten to her? If you are managing an event that is spread out over 80 some acres a person wouldn't be able to get much done without wheels below them. If he could work out in that sun for that week and still be smiling then kudos to him. I wish that the employees at my company were as enthusiastic as he was.

Regarding the previous post from Larry Knaught: Who witnessed people not delivering money? It is kind of hard to say you saw someone not do something unless you watched them like a hawk. If the gate was not secured whose fault is that? Is it security's fault? Is it the person who hired security? Also, the last time I checked, it's ok to sell your ticket out front of the venue, which I know a few people with extra tickets did. One shouldn't assume that since someone is out front scalping a ticket that they are automattically connected with the festival staff. It seems there is a ton of hasty accusations pointed at Mr. Noble and his team. I think that Mr. Long might need to take blame for some things too...after all it was his event.

The way that Mr. Long is saying everything is Mr.Noble's fault and that he is completely innocent and did absolutly nothing wrong makes me less likely to believe him. I doubt that the rest of the public is this niave as well.

Your last line in the article does not seem unbiased to me. In fact, the entire article seemed a little biased. In addition to the dogs at the sanctuary, I witnessed a horse on the property who was obviously malnurished and had something wrong with its hoofs. I was happy to support such a wonderful cause, but I doubt that after reading this article that I will support another Dogstock event. Wakarusa can't come soon enough.

If the animal rescue santuary really wants to help its animals, why not apply for state or federal grants? If it has non-for-profit status it's chances of receiving funds are much higher, and less riskier than throwing a party.

Best of Luck,

Re: “A Doggone Drag

I was at Dogstock5, and involved in a fashion. I can tell you that the attendance was around 3,500. The music, food, and commercial vendors was all great. Eric Noble did just as Randy Long said, he arrived with several of his so called helpers, that by the way never used real names (BB, Spanky, and Frogo). We viewed them scalping tickets, and not turning in the money that they were getting from patrons as they purchased tickets. This money was to help take care of the Akita Adoption and Rescue Foundation, so I feel that they would all steal from their mother, as well as steal from these wonderful dogs. I do not know if the money the three alias folks gave the money to Noble, but he sure brought them, and had no control over them whatsoever. Randy Long has quite a mess on his shoulders, and hopefully this weekend will help him clear up part of it. Please if you are a pet lover help out Akita Adoption and Rescue Foundation. Every dollar will help, in fact I sent off 100.00 today. Randy has a great place for a festival, and hopes are that he will be able to recover so we can have another event next summer.
