Stolen items

As has been requested (endlessly) EK's Star Log is returning to the internet. You can still read the original archive here... https://eelkat.wordpress.com 

The reason you couldn't find it is because I set it to private un-index mode, meaning it no longer shows up in Google search results and can only be accessed by a direct link.

Meaning, if you didn't have the url for it, no amount of searching for it would tell you how to find it. Anyone who had the url could still access it though.

I had set it to private September 23, 2013, intending to move each page here to EelKat.com... however, November 14, 2013, after only moving about 30 pages, I was beaten up and left paralyzed for 5 months, then spent 18 months relearning to walk. I am still crippled and have limited mobility.

Below is one of the blog posts that originally appeared on EK's Star Log. The original articles are still online but no longer indexed in Google. Links to the original article, are included with this post, as is the original posting date. Clicking the links will take you to the original site, where you can see the old Space Dock 13 website still online. Space Dock 13 as it looked when hosted on WordPress from 2003 to 2013.

RStolen Items! Please be on the look out for them!

On April 26, 2007 our home in Old Orchard Beach Maine was broken into, several items were stolen. Among other things, the thieves stole an antique stamp collection that has been passed down in our family for nearly 100 years. There were 2 bound books, and several pages torn from a third book stolen, as well as a glass/cardboard case. The descriptions of the items that have been stolen are as follows:

One stamp album is a red cloth bound book dating from the 1920/1930 eras, containing stamps dating from 1890’s – 1950’s. Many of the stamps are from Japan and it’s neighboring South Pacific region as my grandmother was best friends with the wife of the ambassador of Japan, who was living in the South Pacific at that time and sent the stamps back to Maine to my grandmother, Helen Ricker Allen. In addition to these the album contains several hundred stamps from this era from nearly every country in the world that had stamps at that time. My grandmother was quite young at the time and knew nothing of stamp collecting, as a result the stamps are glued down, not hinged, onto the pages, with the duplicate colors of them pasted one on top of the other. This fact along with the date and size of this collection makes it stand out among old collections, so should the thieves attempt to sell it to you, you well have no difficultly in mistaking it.


The second album is not so unique and may be more difficult to trace, though we hope that the thieves attempt to sell them both at the same time. It is a plastic ring binder from the late 1960’s era, quite common, and contains the basic colorful world stamps that are so often found in world collections of this era. The torn out pages come from a second identical plastic ring binder album. These belonged to my mother as a child.

The glass/cardboard case is a butterfly case, whose butterflies long since rotted and were replaced (by me) with another item. The glass/cardboard case contains a one of a kind hand carved heirloom that has been passed down in our family since the 1930’s. The item is a hand carved wooden weaving comb (or hair comb) from a tribe in Papua New Guinea (believed to be Chimbu, but the exact tribe is unknown). Along with the comb is a negative of the solider (my dad’s uncle) who brought the comb back with him from PNG during the 1930’s. Also in the case is an index card on which I hand wrote the info about the comb and the solider.

These items are dearly beloved and greatly missed; both have been in my family and passed down for generations. We want them returned, and are contacting as many local dealers and appraisers as we can find and requesting that they be on the look out for anyone selling or requesting an appraisal on items fitting this description. If you see these items please know that they are stolen goods and call the police immediately! Make sure that you get the description of the bearer of these stolen items and if possible their names, so that you can give this information to the police. In addition to stealing these items the thieves did considerable damage to our home, using a crowbar to tear the lock off the door, and than trashing the house, including breaking and antique gold/glass anniversary clock that my grandmother had brought with her from Germany and smashing many 78’s. We are seeking to prosecute these vandals and thieves once we know their identity, but mostly we want the stamp album and the PNG comb returned safely back home where they belong.

I am trying to send this notice on to as many dealers as possible, but it is a daughting task, and ask if you could help by passing copies of this letter on to any of your associates, fellow dealers/appraisers, and collectors. Any help you can give us in tracking down these stolen items would be greatly helpful.


If you should find them, Please contact me:

"People deserve a break. The stressed and unorganized person who doesn’t have the same priorities as you. They may be dealing with an autistic child, abusive spouse, fading parents, or cancer. Don’t judge people until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes. Give them a break instead." 

— Guy Kawasaki


I'm a woman who has had 7 miscarriages, and wears "elaborate clothes". Because I have no children, the residents of Old Orchard Beach, beat me up, calling me a transsexual, claiming only a man would dress like I do, claiming that the reason I have no children is because I'm not really female.

They left me paralyzed and crippled. 

They crushed my hips, my pelvis, and my spine, and took away, what little chance I had to carry a pregnancy to full term.

I'm crippled for the rest of my life. I can barely walk now. It's why I'm now on a cane. Any hope I had of having children is gone now.

That's the reality, of the gay hatred of this town. 

I have Autism. I wear pink. I wear glitter. I talk with a "funny gay sounding voice".

According to the people in this town:

I walk like a fag...

talk like a fag...

dress like a fag...

act like a fag...

and therefor must be treated like a fag...

I need to be taught my place...

I deserve to be shot in the head...

I look gay, and therefore I must be, 

because no one but gay men, talk in this voice

no one but gay men wear pink

no one but gay men wear glitter

no one but gay men prance instead of walk...

so they beat me up, because I'm "too gay" for Old Orchard Beach

they cut my car in half, because I'm "too gay" for Old Orchard Beach

they put a bomb in my house, because I'm "too gay" for Old Orchard Beach

they filled my motorhome with feces, because I'm "too gay" for Old Orchard Beach

they kidnapped my cats, because I'm "too gay" for Old Orchard Beach

they drove a back hoe over my house, because I'm "too gay" for Old Orchard Beach

they cut my cats heads off and nailed their heads to my door, because I'm "too gay" for Old Orchard Beach

because I have Autism

and that makes me "too gay for the family friend town of Old Orchard Beach"

I used to dance when I walked... but after 5 months paralyzed, 18 months relearning to walk, and now 4 years later, my leg is lame and I am crippled, barely able to stand, dragging a lame leg, I'll never dance again.

Do you know what that's like?

Can you even begin to imagine?

To be an Autistic person, who can no longer dance when I walk?

They hate gay men so much, that they are willing to beat up a childless autistic women, in ill health, accusing her of being a transvestite.

Because these evil people took away my ability to have children, I had cats; but they took my cats, and cut off their heads, and nailed them to my door.

Welcome to Old Orchard Beach. The gay-hating capital of Maine.

This is the reality of how Autistics are seen by the world.

This is the reality of how Autistics are treated by "normal" people.

This is the reality of being transgender in Old Orchard Beach.

This is the reality of what bullies do to someone with mental illnesses, they do not understand.

This is the reality of living with Autism.

“Don’t turn your face away. 

Once you’ve seen, you can no longer act like you don’t know.

Open your eyes to the truth. It’s all around you.

Don’t deny what the eyes to your soul have revealed to you.

Now that you know, you cannot feign ignorance.

Now that you’re aware of the problem, you cannot pretend you don’t care.

To be concerned is to be human.

To act is to care.” 

― Vashti Quiroz-Vega
