RE: Webinar #42 Scheduled 

To All CMKM/NHHI Shareholders:

I will host Webinar #42 on Thursday night, April 30, 2015 at 8 PM CDT using the Paltalk room designed for NHHI. Here are instructions for joining the meeting:

1. Download Paltalk Messenger (free download) and log into Paltalk.

2. Look under the heading “Business and Finance” rooms and under the subheading “Investments”.

3. When the room is open you will see the name “New Horizons Holdings, Inc.”.

4. Click on the room to join the meeting.

We continue to await the ruling from Clark County District Court to determine the fate of a large judgment obtained by CMKM over two years ago. If a ruling is handed down before the Webinar, I will discuss the ruling in detail and its implications for CMKM/NHHI going forward.

Otherwise, the Webinar will likely be relatively brief, as there is not much new news to discuss pending the outcome of the court case. CMKM/NHHI management and shareholders have become very familiar with the excruciating delays involved with litigation and court proceedings. We look forward to the day when CMKM/NHHI is not dependent on litigation for funding and survival.

RE: Update on Clark County District Court Hearing Today 

To All CMKM/NHHI Shareholders:

A final hearing was held today in Clark County (Nevada) District Court regarding a large judgment obtained by CMKM and the efforts of the judgment debtor to get our judgment overturned. Judge Cadish heard final arguments from both parties today, and took the case under advisement, meaning that she will issue a final ruling at some unspecified date in the near future. 

Our legal team and I remain cautiously optimistic that the court will issue a favorable ruling in this important matter. I will report the final ruling on this website as soon as it is released.

RE: Update on Court Hearing on March 24, 2015, Webinar #41

To All CMKM/NHHI Shareholders:

Another hearing was held yesterday, March 24, 2015 in Clark County District Court with regard to a large judgment obtained by CMKM over two years ago. In simplified terms, Judge Cadish granted our Motion to Compel yesterday and gave the judgment debtor three days to provide requested evidence that had been withheld using questionable tactics (claiming attorney/client privilege).

We believe that the withheld evidence will provide additional confirmation of the fact that our judgement is valid and should be allowed to stand. The court has scheduled another hearing for April 21, 2015 and we expect the judge to issue a final ruling on that date.

Our attorneys, Bill Frizzell and Jay Shafer have done an excellent job in this case to overcome numerous obstacles presented by the two law firms representing the judgment debtor. We remain optimistic that the judge will uphold our judgment and allow it to proceed to a collection phase.

Webinar #41

I will host Webinar #41 on Tuesday, March 31, 2015 at 8 PM CDT using the Paltalk room designed for NHHI. Here are instructions for joining the meeting:

1. Download Paltalk Messenger (free download) and log into Paltalk.

2. Look under the heading “Business and Finance” rooms and under the subheading “Investments”.

3. When the room is open you will see the name “New Horizons Holdings, Inc.”.

4. Click on the room to join the meeting.

I will discuss all current CMKM/NHHI business, and answer shareholder questions as always during the Webinar. I hope many of you are able to attend. Thank you.

RE: Clark County, NV Court Hearing Update

To All CMKM/NHHI Shareholders:

Another hearing was held yesterday, March 17, 2015 in Clark County, Nevada District Court regarding a large civil judgment obtained by CMKM, domesticated overseas, and now being challenged by the judgment debtor. Progress was made at the hearing, but another hearing has been scheduled for March 24, 2015 to continue untangling the facts and issues in this complex matter. If necessary, a final hearing is pre-scheduled for April 21, 2015.

As we have experienced for many years now and on many fronts, the legal process can be excruciatingly slow and unpredictable. Again, we have no choice but to stay the course and wait for the court to rule on this important matter.

The judgment debtor’s legal team has tried every tactic and maneuver in the book to delay the outcome, confuse the facts, and overturn our judgment. However, our lead counsel Bill Frizzell and our local counsel Jay Shafer have done an excellent job representing the interests of CMKM/NHHI, and we remain optimistic that the judge will rule in our favor.

I will provide an update after the hearing on March 24, 2014. Thank you.

RE: Evidentiary Hearing, Interpleader 

To All CMKM/NHHI Shareholders:

Evidentiary Hearing

An emergency hearing was held on March 4, 2015 in Clark County District Court with regard to a large judgment obtained by CMKM and reconfirmed over two years ago. The evidentiary hearing had been set for March 12, 2015, but was pushed forward due to the defendant’s alleged travel plans and attempts to get the hearing delayed until May. Due to the mass of evidence, conflicting testimony and other legal wrangling, the judge has ordered another hearing for March 17, 2015 to further clarify certain issues before rendering a decision. A third hearing may be required, or the judge may rule on March 17 – there is no way to know until the judge is satisfied that a fair ruling can be made.

Please monitor this website after March 17 for further updates on this important matter.

Interpleader

I have received renewed questions regarding the infamous “interpleader” issue from 2007, and will once again attempt to briefly clarify the matter with the hard facts. Former CMKM attorney J. T. Moran III was allegedly instructed in 2007 by former CMKM insider and CEO Urban Casavant to file an “interpleader” with the proper court with regard to the distribution of a large block of Entourage shares to CMKM shareholders. Court intervention would have been needed to distribute the Entourage shares due to the incomplete nature of CMKM’s recordkeeping and “official” but incomplete shareholder list. The idea of the “interpleader” was to get a court to authorize distribution of Entourage shares to an unofficial shareholder list assembled by the CMKM Task Force.

This issue is far too complex to be fully discussed in this brief update. However, the hard fact is that an “interpleader” was never filed by J. T. Moran III or anyone else. CMKM was ultimately sued by Entourage and settled the lawsuit by returning the 45,000,000 Entourage shares to Entourage as part of the settlement agreement.

Regardless of the rumors, beliefs or misinformation circulating among a few CMKM/NHHI shareholders on Proboards, chat rooms or whatever – an “interpleader” was never filed and the issue is completely dead, with no value to NHHI or its shareholders as we continue the difficult process of building a legitimate business from the ashes of what was a massive fraud called CMKM Diamonds, Inc.

I will discuss this issue in more detail during the next webinar to be held later in March. Thank you and God bless.

RE: Webinar #40, Evidentiary Hearing

To All CMKM/NHHI Shareholders:

Webinar #40 is scheduled for Tuesday, February 24, 2015 at 8:00 PM CDT using the Paltalk room designed for NHHI. Here are instructions for joining the meeting:

1. Download Paltalk Messenger (free download) and log into Paltalk

2. Look under the heading “Business and Finance” rooms and under the subheading “Investments”.

3. When the room is open you will see the name “New Horizons Holdings, Inc.”.

4. Click on the room to join the meeting.

The meeting will focus primarily on answering your questions about the CMKM/NHHI tax returns from years 2002 – 2013, which were recently posted on this website for your review.

Evidentiary Hearing

The evidentiary hearing in Clark County District Court regarding a large judgment obtained by CMKM/NHHI has been delayed until March 12, 2015. The judgment debtor is attempting to get the hearing delayed further into May, 2015, which we have not agreed to, as we have been pursuing a recovery from this judgment for nearly two years. However, the court may grant a further delay in spite of our efforts to expedite a decision. Our legal team has conducted recent depositions and gathered further evidence to defend and reconfirm the validity of the judgment, and will defend our position in the hearing whenever it is held. I will report the outcome of the hearing as soon as it is completed, and will inform you if the court grants a further delay.

This judgment recovery and other assets we are pursuing remain a critical part of the effort to establish a legitimate, growing and profitable business and to create value for our shareholders.

Prepare your tax return-related questions and bring them to next week’s webinar. Thank you and God bless.

RE: Wells Fargo Settlement, Webinar #39 This Week, Tax Returns 

To All CMKM/NHHI Shareholders:

As announced in a lengthy Webinar #38 Friday night, CMKM/NHHI has reached a settlement with Wells Fargo Bank in the extended lawsuit that we have been engaged in for many years. As with any settlement of this type, the terms and conditions of settlement are sealed.

The announcement of this settlement has, as expected, created a new round of highly-emotional responses from Shareholders, ranging from extreme anger to euphoria. I have received communications of all types, including those wishing for my early and prompt death and demise. After the extreme length and difficulty of the CMKM journey, I can understand the majority of the emotions.

For those unable to attend Webinar #38, I have attached a brief PowerPoint outline of the event, which you can access by clicking here or here for pdf version. Since the Webinar lasted over three hours, with many questions and  much detailed discussion, the PowerPoint outline will only capture a few of the many important facts about the settlement.

I will host another Webinar (#39) this week on Thursday night, February 5, 2015 at 8:00 PM CST to allow those who could not attend last week to get involved in the discussion, using the Paltalk room designed for NHHI. Here are instructions for joining the meeting:

1. Download Paltalk Messenger (free download) and log into Paltalk.

2. Look under the heading “Business and Finance” rooms and under the subheading “Investments”.

3. When the room is open you will see the name “New Horizons Holdings, Inc.”.

4. Click on the room to join the meeting.

For those of you who are troubled because I am prohibited from discussing the terms and conditions of the settlement, you will eventually be able to view the “numbers”, as they will be shown on the NHHI 2015 tax return, and which will not be a violation of the settlement agreement.

Tax Returns 2007 – 2013
Since our litigation against Wells Fargo is completed, I will be posting the CMKM/NHHI Corporate U.S. Tax Returns for years 2007 - 2013 on this website as soon as possible. Please monitor this website for an update and link to the tax return files.

RE: Webinar #37, Christmas Greetings

The Amazon portal has produced $168.06 in profit so far this month. Many thanks to those who are making purchases through the portal, as the small profit generated is a huge help in offsetting some of our overhead.

As we rapidly approach Christmas day, the last-minute rush to prepare can be overwhelming. May we never forget to reflect upon the true meaning of the season – the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Merry Christmas to you and your families, and God bless!

RE: Confirmation of the death of Urban Casavant 

To All CMKM/NHHI Shareholders:

I have had inquiries over the last few days concerning the validity of the reported death of former CMKM CEO and insider Urban Casavant. I reported Casavant’s death on February 17, 2014 on this website, and have discussed it on numerous Webinars. Urban Casavant did indeed pass away on February 14, 2014 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada.

Apparently, there are individuals posting information on Proboards and other blogs that Mr. Casavant is not dead, is under “witness protection”, or other totally false material. Certainly, hearing of false information being circulated by various individuals regarding anything related to CMKM is nothing new. I do not read any Proboard or blog, and will continue to avoid doing so at all costs. However, when I post something on this website, you can rest assured that the information is accurate and truthful.

I have a copy of Mr. Casavant’s death certificate on file, but will not publish it out of deference to the privacy of the Casavant family. The U.S. Department of Justice has dismissed criminal charges against Urban Casavant due to his death. Please use the provided link here if you wish to view the DOJ’s Motion to Dismiss, which is additional validation of Casavant’s passing.

Frankly, even after three years of working as CEO of CMKM/NHHI, I do not understand the motives of a few select individuals that specialize in misinformation and controversy. I also do not understand how myths such as bogus trusts, payouts, conglomerates, “sting operations”, and other unverified stories continue to be circulated by some and even accepted by numerous well-meaning and innocent Shareholders. Regardless of your position on these controversial topics, time will prove that all we have left is a severely-damaged company struggling to survive and to recover the needed capital to build a legitimate business for our longsuffering Shareholders. The work will continue daily to accomplish that worthy goal.

Thank you and God bless.

RE: Webinar #36 Recap, Updates

To All CMKM/NHHI Shareholders:

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving celebration with plenty of family, friends, food, shopping, and football. We had a good turnout for Webinar #36 last Tuesday night, with 65+ attendees in the NHHI Paltalk room. I have received requests for a summary of the Webinar, which I will provide today.

Hearing on Large Judgment Obtained by CMKM

A hearing was held 11/25/14 with regards to a large US judgment that CMKM lawyers obtained in May, 2013. The judgment was domesticated to a foreign country in an effort to collect on the US judgment, but the judgment debtor recently filed for dismissal of our judgment in US court, which would have nullified our collections effort overseas. The judge did not dismiss our judgment in the 11/25 hearing, but instead called for an evidentiary hearing, the date of which has not been firmly set. We have already provided substantial evidence in obtaining the judgment. However, the judge will require the evidentiary hearing before ruling on whether our judgment will stand or must be re-filed. If we can succeed in actually enforcing this judgment, it would provide much-needed seed capital to NHHI to begin building a real, functioning and growing business.

Wells Fargo Case

The Wells Fargo case is ongoing as we await the date of the next hearing, which will be to schedule future hearings and discovery deadlines. Wells Fargo will be required to surrender a virtual mountain of documentation as the case progresses.

Criminal Trial

The trial in the criminal case against former CMKM insiders has been re-scheduled from 1/6/15 to 9/15/15. This delay has been expected due to the (fairly recent) extradition of John Edwards and his attempts to avoid standing trial for medical reasons, along with requests for additional time from another criminal defendant.

Amway/Amazon Update

The NHHI Amazon portal generated $114.55 in profits in the month of November. The Amway portal generated a zero profit. The Amazon portal is helping cover a portion of the $250/month overhead cost that must be met to keep the CMKM website active and the minimal overhead items paid. “Thank you” to those making purchases through the Amazon portal.

We had numerous good questions from the Webinar attendees, and the event ran for almost two hours. I will attempt to provide a brief summary of future Webinars on this website for the benefit of those unable to attend. Thank you and God bless!

As we enter the holiday season, with Thanksgiving Day upon us next week, I want to wish you and your families a very happy and enjoyable Thanksgiving. In spite of the difficulties of life, we have so much to be thankful for – freedom, family, friends – and abundant blessings from our God who loves us and sent His Son Jesus Christ to die for us and offer us the free gift of His salvation.

I understand how difficult the journey has been for CMKM shareholders, but there is still strong hope that this highly-damaged company will emerge f
