*The following story (Bull SHEET) is based in part, on Complaints/Records recently received from the Oregon Department of Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) pursuant to an ORDER issued by the Oregon Department of Justice (DOJ). The DOJ’s ORDER was regarding complaints submitted in 2020 against Ranch Matters John Stevens’ private investigators license that were submitted by Ranch Officials and later dismissed by DPSST as

On March 8, 2020, Ranch Director Mark Schneider wrote his Compliant to the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) against Ranch Matters John Stevens’ private investigators license.
Schneider opens his complaint by stating,
“He (Stevens) is constantly violating your ‘Code of Ethics and Conduct’ and WE believe he should have his license removed.”
Schneider goes on,
“I will be attaching a SIGNATURE SHEET to this complaint so that you can see it is not just some disgruntled person making the claim. Hopefully it will hold some weight and have John Stevens license REVOKED.”
SIGNATURE SHEETS ATTACHED
Prior to posting today’s story Ranch Matters reached out to some of the people that signed Schneider’s SHEET. There were 11 names listed and we were able to make contact with 3 and left messages for others.
Herb Carter was at the top of the list and he said he didn’t remember signing anything and we provided him a copy via email.
Michael S. O’Brien was a signer and he stated,
“Not interested, thank you” and hung up.
Former Ranch VP, Stuart Steinberg was another signer and he confirmed signing the SHEET because he “agreed with what Mark was doing.” Steinberg added,
“I don’t care for you at all. You and that other fucking asshole, called me a Nazi…”
Steinberg then goes off stating,
“LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING MOTHERFUCKER, YOU’RE LUCKY I DIDN’T COME OFF THAT TABLE AND BEAT YOU FUCKING BLOODY-DO YOU UNDERSTAND ME?”
What is Steinberg talking about?
Ranch Matters posted a story in the Summer of 2019, titled, “CALL THE GESTAPO regarding the Ranch Board’s Resolution about Board Meetings and a Code of Conduct.
The GESTAPO story addressed how, in our opinion, the Ranch Board of Directors control/ influence all official and not so official communication platforms, including:
*BOD MEETINGS *
*BOD MINUTES *
*SOCIAL MEDIA-ND & CRR CHAT
We asked, “WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT THOSE WHO CONTROL INFORMATION?”
The story ended on the following note, “Talks like a Nazi, Walks like a Nazi & Governs like a Nazi…”
We admit we used the terms Heil Hitler and Seig Heil at a Board meeting, but only as a way of portraying the Board’s Conduct as Nazi Like. The Board had made many false, slanderous, defamatory and misleading accusations against us and denied us an opportunity to respond.
Schneider’s March 12, 2020 complaint appears to have been organized, coordinated and submitted by Ranch Officials with the objective of having Stevens’ private investigators license REVOKED and force him to move off the Ranch. Additionally, the Ranch Association did their best to use DPSST as a weapon to silence Ranch Matters.
DPSST dismissed Schneider’s complaint as “FALSE/UNFOUNDED.”
