A very special person.
I was once a preacher. My congregation
was down in the river bottom
of the Santa Clara river near
Wagon Wheel in Ventura County California.
John Henry was the unofficial
mayor of this lost world of broken lives.
He personally protected everyone
weaker than himself,
running anyone out of the camps
whether murderer, rapist, thief or arsonist.
His arch enemy was Joseph
Pritchard. (Joe Preacher), a
homeless man rumored to be a serial killer.
(we will never know because the Ventura County DA refused to look into
the murder of homeless people)
