Woman spotted “walking” NAKED hooded man next to West Virginia road

Naked Man On Leash Prompts Criminal Probe with unknown object stuck up his whoha butt

JULY 30--West Virginia prosecutors are mulling criminal charges against a couple spotted yesterday morning engaging in some naked bondage play alongside U.S. Route 40 in West Virginia, according to police.
Responding to a 9:30 AM call “in regards to a female allegedly walking a naked man on a leash,” Ohio County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrived at an intersection in Wheeling and began interviewing area residents.
A female witness told deputies that the female suspect “had a leash tied to a male,” who was wearing a hood and appeared to have his feet and ankles bound. He “also had an unidentified object sticking out of his anus,” according to a police report.
In short order, deputies identified Barbara Jean “B.J.” Geardello, 53, as the woman holding the dog leash. In an interview, Geardello “stated that it was a sex game and they meant no harm by it.” Robert Deyell, identified in the report as Geardello’s boyfriend, was the hooded man on the leash. Read More

Doug Ducey AZ Candidate Says" Judge me By Business Experience: See Stone Cold Creamery Lawsuits On the Docket

Beginning in early 2000 until present 40 lawsuits have been filed involving Cold Stone Creamery
View lawsuits On The Docket

Store Closings
"Cold Stone says more than 100 of its stores closed last year. That's up from 60 in 2006. One list on a Cold Stone Web site recently had 303 stores for sale -- more than 20% of the company's 1,384 as of last December." -WS Journal
" Cold Stone's eroding store base - from 1402 stores in 2008 to 1198 in 2009 (see below for 2010 figure)" -CNBC Behind the Counter V1
"In the US their store count has fallen from 1163 stores in 2009 to 1102 stores by the end of 2010" -CNBC Behind the Counter V2

Welcome to Cold Stone Facts

Somewhere between the Sutherlands dropping the first scoop of ice cream on a cold granite stone and today - the executives at Cold Stone went too far with their "profit-increasing" new-product mandates.  Somewhere the line for any kind of profitability was crossed with no possibility of returning without serious corporate reforms.  Basically, there are just so many creations, cakes, cupcakes, smoothies, shakes that can be sold in a day and whatever that number is, it is NOT ENOUGH to compensate for the labor intensive, name-brand product intensive, electricity-sucking intensive, corporate-fee intensive business model.  It is hard to tell when that profitability line was crossed and it really doesn't matter, this site is about recording the facts about the Cold Stone's business model and Cold Stone's business dealings with current and past franchisees.  In the end, the hope is to act as a sentinel to would be franchisees and provide a comprehensive site of Cold Stone Facts and stories of franchisees who have traveled the road already and dealt with Cold Stone Corporate.

Cold Stone depends on facts and information about the business model to fade into the past where they are forgotten by the latest franchise disaster story - this site will resist the information fade and obscure spin of information dished up from Dan Beem and his "profitability" finance team.

Everything on this site is factual or direct experience oriented.  There is no desire ruin the Cold Stone brand (corporate is doing that all by themselves!)  and there is no need to spin facts as the details of the facts will speak for themselves.  Each news article or forum opinion has the link to the original posting so each visitor can see the context which the facts were derived.
