FROM THE EDITOR

By Glory Ann Kurtz

Recently I received and included in a previous article, court documents that revealed Denton “Denny” Dunn had been arrested for 10 felonies, along with his wife. Open court records also revealed he pleaded guilty to one felony account. As a result of his felony plea, his five-year prison sentence was reduced to one year of active probation and restitution repayment of $95,047. Further, court records provided evidence of two previously filed bankruptcies.

As a result, NCHA President Lewis Wray recently sent out a communication to NCHA Directors as follows: “Dear Directors. The Executive Committee wishes to inform you that Dennie Dunn has resigned as a member of all NCHA Standing Committees. Additionally, Dennie Dunn has accepted a suspension of his status of an NCHA Life Director. Dunn has  not been a member of the Grievance Committee since approximately Jan. 1, 2018. We will update you if there are any changes in this matter.”

My question is, “Why is Denny Dunn still allowed to be a member of the NCHA after pleading guilty to a felony, being ordered to restitution of $95,047 and filing two bankruptcies – while the Ray and Lainie Whitmire are still suspended to this day after spending approximately $1.5 million in court costs and legal fees to win their case against the NCHA, which they did through the court … and they’re still under suspension! Her only  crime was that she was a barrel racer and they tried to prove that she was a trainer of barrel horses. Also, it was proven in court that there was never a filed written complaint for which the Whitmires were suspended under.

Ironically, guess who was on the Executive Committee and who the Chairman of the Grievance Committee was at that time: You guessed it – Dennie Dunn.

  2. I am pretty sure you know I do not agree with you on many issues. But on Dennie, that is an excellent question!

  3. YOU KNOW THE NCHA HAS HAD THEIR ISSUES FOR YEARS AND YEARS BUT DON’T WANT ANYONE TO TALK ABOUT IT AND WHEN SOMEONE DOES, THEY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH IT. YOU WOULD THINK ONE DAY THEY WOULD TRY AND CLEAN HOUSE AND CLEAN UP THE ORGANIZATION FROM TOP TO BOTTOM BUT THAT’S LIKE LOOKING FOR A “COLD DAY IN HELL.” (APPROPRIATE ANALOGY WOULDN’T YOU SAY? HA HA

  4. Thank you for your honesty and reporting. Unfortunately the NCHA has over the last 20 years plus become a totally corrupt organization, catering to embezzlers, corrupt judges and dishonest administrators. The Whitmire case was a total fraud and everyone knows it. Dunn is a criminal and so were many other NCHA administrators.

  5. Glory,
    I agree with you one hundred percent! Also why is Denny still allowed to have his judge’s card? He should be kicked out for life. He wanted to take Whitmire’s case clear to the Supreme court. How much did that cost us as NCHA members? There was a good friend of mine and a lot of other people that lost a big lawsuit that he should not have but it bankrupted him and Denny was at a show laughing about it to other people. He is a low life and I for one hope he gets everything he deserves.

  6. Maybe the question needs to be asked is, “Is he still allowed to judge or does being a suspended member automatically mean he cannot judge or show or consult or do anything to do with the cutting horse business as it pertains to NCHA. Perhaps it is time to address that issue. Like what constitutes a revocation of your membership? Does anything? Or how do they determine who has a right to be a member in good standing. Perhaps those words should be addressed. Do we say anywhere, “Member in good standing?”
