“Ship of Fools – A Sonoran Truth Editorial / Satirical Opinion”

August 26, 2014

 Welcome to the Ship of Fools. 

Ship Captain (Donny Boy) Sorchych.

 And what a ship-load of fools it is!

Cave Creek, Donny Boy’s ship of state, is loaded with wannabe’s, has been’s and never will be’s.

But what can you expect from a these idiosyncratic characters bordering on (or slipping over) the line into full blown neuroses and psychoses?

Here’s some good examples of the wannabes that populate Cave Creek:

A run of the mill real estate salesman who calls himself Cowboy Terry Smith.
He’s not even a good real estate salesmen much less a wannabe cowboy.

How many people do you know wannabe called Cowboy anything?

 Then there is ‘light in the loafers’ Steve LaMar who calls himself a horseman.

You have to wonder how LaMar can so blindly support Captain Donny Boy.  

In fact, he’s a three time let go lawyer that can’t find a job now.


Or how about Janet Mohr? She’s another run of the mill real estate sales person that gathered defective petitions and foisted them off as genuine.

The court didn’t think it was funny and they were all disallowed.

Then she had the stupidity to blame her failure on a judge that didn’t agree with her shenanigans.

 Or how about John C. Briganti?  Know him? 

He’s from New Jersey. You can immediately detect his ‘Joisey’ accent. He doesn’t want you to know his real name and won’t tell you.  This wannabe calls himself Johnny Ringo.

Johnny Ringo was an outlaw with Ike Clanton and Frank Stilwell in Cochise County during 1881–1882.

Around Tombstone Ringo had a reputation as having a bad temper. And he may have participated in robberies and killings.

Who wants to be known as a bad tempered old murderous , robber and thug that committed suicide by shooting himself in the head?


Geez….can’t he find a better role model than that?

The latest fool to board the Ship of Fools under Donny Boy’s tutelage is Susan Clancy. 

She decided to take on the newly elected council on behalf of Donny Boy and get them recalled.

Fool that she is, she must have thought there would be absolutely no consequences.

Wrong!  Not only were the petitions for recall invalid so were hers!

As of Aug. 25, 2014 she is off the ballot for school board because of her inept petition gathering.

The judge ruled she does not have enough valid petitions to be on the ballot in November.

What did she expect?  She declared a battle to recall the council and thought no one would stand up for their own rights?

Ignorance can be fixed….stupid is forever.

We could go on with more examples of the fools on this ship but the point is that none of them get where Captain, Donny Boy is taking them.

And they don’t seem to be able to figure it out.

And a note for Hani Saba, another fool on the ship to nowhere: 

Is  your pharmacy license above scrutiny?

Just sayin…..

Editors – Sonoran Truth





Fake tans, fake smiles, arrogant small men. Seems Angelo Mozilo is facing new criminal charges.

What we wonder is why did Vince Francia hire Mozilo’s brother Ralph, to be the town’s financial adviser??? Ralph used to work for Countrywide. Just how far and how deep does the corruption go in Cave Creek? A Mayor who works for a Race Track, a gambling joint with ties to the mob that lost its license at one point because of shady deals with underworld folks from Vegas… and Ralph the loan shark Mozilo, former vice-mayor, always the blood brother of Angelo, whose facing criminal charges.

Sure Ralph could be pure as snow. Snow that Dog Poop Don turned yellow. Yeah, Ralph had his moments with Don, but not many.

For those of you who need face to go with a name, here’s Ralph’s big brother:


Swearin’ the WHOLE truth. Yeah, what was in that bologna your dad sold as a butcher, Ange?

Donny’s Ticker, Lawsuits, Coyotes, Petitions, Buffaloes, and SN BS

A Sonoran Truth Editorial, August 7, 2014

The Truth has learned that Conestoga Merchants, Inc., publisher of the Sonoran News along with Don and Shari Jo Sorchych are evading service of Fressadi’s lawsuit in Federal District Court. Fressadi alleges that Sorchych and Usama along with their minions engaged in a fraudulent scheme to control and convert his property. Fressadi filed under state RICO statutes such that Don and Usama are facing mandatory jail time. Let’s hope that Don’s ticker holds out so that he can serve a mandatory sentence.

Don’s still spinning BS claiming that Trenk is costing the town millions or whatever in legal fees and facing a Federal complaint from Usama. Trenk has yet to be served. It’s filed but frivolous. It won’t last 90 days if Usama has the balls to serve Trenk.

The lawsuits caused by Sorchych and Usama (along with Mariscal Weeks, now Dickinson Wright) are long and endless. This is the real cost of having to deal with Don’s psychological illness to which his mindless minions like Janet Mohr and Hani Saba follow as if Don is some sort of messiah.  Eunuch Francia ALWAYS does Don’s bidding, so of course they’ll change the Coyote to prevent Trenk from telling the Truth in the Town’s publication.

Nothing’s really changed in Cave Creek, just the appearance that things are different. Take Zoning for instance. Don used to support no growth activists like Marsolo, Stanfield, Meeth to create the acronym CAVE- Citizens Against Virtually Everything. Marsolo, Meeth and Stanfield broke ranks with Don so Don made them out to be bitches. Once Don was established, he changed his tune to bring in the worst big box of all- Wal Mart. Why? Because Francia, Sorchych, and Usama had so screwed up Cave Creek financially, they had no choice but to seek a bailout from the pariah of small towns, Wal Mart.

So now Donny is going for a third bite at the apple looking to violate the very tenants of democracy with a baseless recall of four council members that Don doesn’t control. Who costs the taxpayers money Don? Who is a sore loser? Wimp. You’re just a decrepit old  wimp, a geezer, a dead man walking… with idiots for friends. Idiots who are so heartless as to poison prized Buffaloes. Can we prove it? Probably not. You got away with it when your minions apparently killed Trenk’s horse.  If it worked on a horse, it would work on buffaloes. The Truth offers it’s condolence to TC. Wise of you not to call back Bentley. She wouldn’t print the truth anyway.



Post Script on Sorchych Stupidity

A Sonoran Truth Editorial, July 17, 2014.

A reader brought to our attention that Sorchych Sychophant Janet Mohr’s logic at the podium to which John Vannucci took brilliant exception to in the Chronicle is all part of the hypocrisy of the Cave Creek misfits, a/k/a the Sorchych Sychophants, the SS.

It is incredulous to me how hypocritical Don Sorchych (editor of the Sonoran news) and Janet Mohr can be. Back in 2001 a group filed a petition to prevent the annexation of the county lands north of Echo Canyon and east on Fleming Springs. This action angered Don and Janet as they wanted the annexation to succeed. So Don and Janet challenged the petition organizers using the very SAME ARGUMENTS that [were] used by councilmen Trenk, Monachino, Spitzer and Durkin in 2014. i.e. 1)Invalid signatures and 2)notarized statement on petition back page was fraudulent. It appears that, for Sorchych and Mohr, what was good for the goose in 2001, is not good for gander in 2014.”

Mohr called the judicial rulings incorrect.  Go see the Wizard Janet and get a brain.

Thanks to our readers who wrote this and brought it to our attention who will remain anonymous to avoid incurring the wrath of a sociopath who publishes the Sonoran News.

Buffalo Murders

A Sonoran Truth Editorial, July 16, 2014.

Sorchych recently lambasted Town Manager Jankowski for not giving the News Town business claiming the S’Norin News was better value than the Arizona Republic…completely overlooking the fact that the Republic is a real paper that follows tenants of objective journalism and not just smear campaigns.

It’s well known in Cave Creek that Don, through the poison pen of Bentley, writes articles in the News to vilify or disparage his enemies and puff pieces on his friends.

Recently, we’ve been wondering why Bentley went to such lengths to address the death of a 60+ year old man with a history of heart disease months ago  to follow up with 2 consecutive weeks of misreporting about a single dead buffalo when in reality two died. How is it that an old man dying of a heart attack and a buffalo dying get so much attention but the death of a young man by gunshot got no press in the same publication?

We are discussing the death of Andrew Libby, the young man found dead in Mayor Francia’s front yard and ruled a suicide by MCSO. http://www.sonorantruth.org/the-history-of-cave-creek/

TC is devastated at the loss of his buffaloes. A preponderance of evidence suggests that TC’s buffaloes were poisoned in the same fashion as Adam Trenk’s horse.


Adam also wondered about the coincidence of a near fatal mechanical mishap to his brand new truck and a cartoon in the Sonoran News depicting a suburban neighborhood as a Swastika. Adam is Jewish, just many of the conquistadors who came to Arizona during the Inquisition, creating the ‘strong and silent’ image of the cowboy… but we digress.

What we want to know is why would TC’s buffalo be poisoned shortly after the Sorchych Recall was thrown out because Hani Saba and Janet Mohr committed campaign fraud?

What we want to know is why would Bentley write about one dead buffalo blaming the death on the animal falling and breaking its neck, but not report anything on the death of the second animal unless… the S’News had something to do with it?

Those Buffalo were TC’s identity. TC’s buffaloes provided an opportunity for folks from all around the valley to come to Cave Creek and experience a show about an American icon. Both TC and Cave Creek have suffered a severe loss with the murder of those spectacular animals.

Why? Is it because Don is a sore loser and lost the recall? So it becomes a vendetta? A collateral attack? Obviously if you were successful at killing Adam’s horse with poison and it went undetected, then the same solution would work killing TC’s buffaloes.

Which leads us to the next troubling question. Why did the Sonoran News never write anything about the death of young man in Mayor Francia’s front yard? Why did MCSO never question Vince even though it was his rifle that killed the boy, and someone please tell us how a kid can shoot himself in the back of his head with a rifle with dead level trajectory? Troubling questions abound.

Obviously, if Don wanted to, he could have gone public with all this and ruined the political career of our “Iconic” Mayor. It’s not rocket science. In this instance, it seems like a form of silent blackmail- either Vince does Don’s bidding or he’s just another schmuck loser.

Isn’t it odd that Vince fashions himself as a Buddhist, yet he’s a bookie– hardly an occupation that can be classified as a Right Livelihood on the Eight Fold Path, a spiritual fraud who married Don and Shari Jo Sorchych. Thick as thieves.




Kudos to Jankowski and Why Don Doesn’t Get It

A Sonoran Truth Editorial, July 14, 2014.

What a great cartoon Don printed on July 9, 2014. We love it.


How many of us have wanted to do this?

Don publishes a Hate rag—it’s not a newspaper.

He’s an egotistical, opinionated, self serving sociopath who thinks he’s entitled to control Cave Creek politics. Hey Pete—we got your back. We don’t want Don having anything to do with Town management. Usama and Don with Francia’s complicity, ran Cave Creek like a sorority. Competence or law didn’t matter. It was all about who liked who. Just ask John Pom Pom Hoeppner, or light in the loafers La Mar. These guys just love each other.

As for corruption? Yes. Town Hall in Cave Creek is Tammany Hall. Pete—you’ve got your work cut out for you. You can’t trust anyone who worked for Usama, especially the Town’s attorneys. They’ll smile to your face and slit your throat. Maybe poison you… literally if they think they can get away with it.

So thanks for having the balls to stand up to Sorchych and keep digging the ditch ‘cuz the poop flows down hill, and it’s been backed up for a long time.

July 16, 2014, a reader replies:

I love it! I’ve been waiting for Sorchych to make an enemy of Jankowski because Jankowski is not knuckling under to him. Good for Pete…I really didn’t think he had it in him. I glad to see he does.

July 20, 2014, another reader replies:

Dear Editor,

As the saying goes, an enemy of my enemy is my friend. I think it’s great the our new town manager is squaring off with Sorchych, but Peter hasn’t done much to clean up the past corruption.

Arek Fressadi

Who Really Runs Cave Creek?

A Sonoran Truth Editorial, July 13, 2014.

Kudos to John Vannucci for telling it like it is in Chronicle.

NewsBulletin 17 7-11-14

The Sorchych Sycophants lost three times but they’re sore losers so they’re going to try another recall. That’s a perversion of the recall process. Elected candidates have to do something wrong to be recalled. Using the recall process for another bite at the apple is not Kosher, but then, what would Don or any his SS cronies know about Kosher?

The recall was to oust Reg, Adam, Mike, and Charlie- the four council members who did not feel comfortable having Usama Abujbarah as the Town Manager. Unfortunately, the Town is still represented by the same lawyers that supported Usama. Need proof? Attorney Jeff Murray is defending the Town, AMRRP, a bunch to Town employees AND HANI SABA in Fressadi’s RICO lawsuit that was removed to District Court.

7-10-14 CC employees

Why would an attorney that is representing the Town (technically the Town Council) represent Saba who knowingly violated recall petition procedure to oust Reg, Adam, Mike and Charlie?

Doesn’t the Town Council hire the town’s attorneys?

Fressadi’s beef with the Town is based on constitutionally protected rights to property and due process. It seems that Arizona Towns and cities were running over citizens rights, so the state legislature passed ARS 9-500.12 and ARS 9-500.13 to insure that municipalities complied with Federally mandated rights to property and procedure.

Fressadi claims that the Town did not comply with these statutes when it required easements and dedications of land to approve a lot split that converted his property into an unlawful subdivision which of course, was published in the Sonoran News.

Attorney Jeff Murray claims that the Town adopted a Zoning Ordinance in 2001 to address the statutory requirements of ARS 9-500.12. Ordinance 02000-07. Trouble is, it doesn’t exist. Exhibit B of the Zoning Ordinance lists all the amendments, deletions and revisions to the Town’s Ordinance since the Town’s inception in chronological order.  Ordinance 02000-07 was never adopted.

Cave Creek’s lawyer, Jeff Murray is doing the same thing that Hani Saba did- he falsified documents to justify his argument.  Who reviews what town attorneys submit to Court?

Fressadi argues that Cave Creek, along with Murray, Mariscal Weeks, Usama and all the rest of the Sorchych sycophants in Town Hall converted his property in excess of $100,000 via a fraudulent scheme. Conviction is a Class 2 felony with mandatory jail time, giving Jeff Murray plenty of incentive to fabricate evidence.

Which leads us back to: Who really runs Cave Creek?

We elect the Town Council. The Town Council appoints the Town Manager,  legal representation, and someone in there selected AMRRP to insure the Town against wrong doing. AMRRP hires Murray, who falsifies evidence and agrees to represent Hani Saba who committed election fraud to oust four members from Town Council to reinstate Usama for the Sorchych sycophants.

Aren’t attorneys who represent a Town supposed to be non-partisan? Why would Reg, Adam, Mike and Charlie or the new Town Manager allow Murray to represent the Town when he is representing Hani Saba?

Update July 16, 2014. According to Fressadi, Murray submitted a notice to court that his representation of Saba was an “inadvertent mistake,” and that the Town’s attorney is no longer representing the head of the recall.
