If Kelley’s filing for personal bankruptcy protection came as a surprise the other day, I was shocked to discover during a routine check of the Knox County Registry of Deeds that his home is in the process of being foreclosed: ARVEST Central Mortgage Company of Arkansas, the current owner of the mortgage on Paul Kelley’s home at 171 Molyneaux Road in Camden, has initiated foreclosure proceedings in Knox County District Court. The company filed their original Complaint for Foreclosure with the Court back in August and an amended Complaint on September 25th, and recorded a notice in the Knox County Registry of Deeds on November 2nd, just one day after Kelley filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy:
I’m somewhat at a loss as to what to say about this latest development. Granted, he hasn’t lost his house yet, but by the time it reaches this stage of the game, foreclosure is almost guaranteed. I have always only wanted Kelley to fix the dam and comply with the Clary Lake Water Level Order, or transfer the dam to the Clary Lake Association and let us take care of it. Whatever. I didn’t expect Paul Kelley to lose his house in the process and while I am sorry it has come to this, I guess I’m not surprised, and I’m not going to lose any sleep over it: he has brought this on himself. His relentless, single-minded pursuit of a spiteful, futile vendetta against Clary Lake has only succeeded in creating a shambles of his life. Somehow I don’t think Paul Kelley expected things to turn out this way; the only thing that surprises me is how he ever thought it could turn out any other way.
