This article was in todays (4/22/10) local newspaper (The Courier Express).
Sure took them long enough!!  Perhaps there shall be some justice.  Oh wait, who am I kidding?

AG charges two men with tax receipt thefts
Two men from Georgia have been charged with stealing nearly $350,000 in unpaid taxes from four hotels in Pennsylvania, including the Clarion Hotel near DuBois.
That hotel closed abruptly in late 2008 and has since reopened under new management.
Agents from the Attorney General's office charged the pair with theft for failing to pay nearly $350,000 in Pennsylvania taxes.
Charles Morais, 47, and Sunil Mir, 36, both of 2767 Windy Hill Road, Marietta, Ga., are the owners of Kronos Hotels, LLC, which owned hotels cross the United States, including hotels in Allegheny, Clearfield, Lancaster and York counties.
The charges state that between 2008 and 2009, the defendants failed to pay $310,849 in state sales tax and $37,020 that was withheld from their employees' paychecks.
"These defendants are charged with stealing nearly $350,000 in sales and withholding taxes," Corbett said. "Their alleged criminal conduct could increase the tax burden on the hard-working and honest business people who follow the law." 
According to the criminal complaint, the total amount of unpaid sales tax and withholding tax for the four Pennsylvania hotels was nearly $347,869. The hotels owned by Kronos Hotels were:
* The Clarion Hotel, 1896 Rich Highway, DuBois. 
* The Holiday Inn Greentree, 401 Holiday Drive, Pittsburgh.
* The Holiday Inn, 334 Arsenal Road, York. 
* The Holiday Inn, 521 Greenfield St, Lancaster.
They owe $95,348 in state sales taxes on the Clarion Hotel in DuBois, $126,302 on the Holiday Inn Greentree in Pittsburgh, $56,921 on the Holiday Inn in Lancaster and $32,278 on the Holiday Inn in York.
In addition, Morais and Mir face charges in connection with nearly $5,500 and $5,700 in unpaid Pennsylvania personal income tax, respectively.
Morais and Mir are each charged with four counts of theft by failure to make required disposition of funds received, a third-degree felony, and with 24 counts of willful failure to remit sales tax, and two counts of willful failure to file sales tax returns, which are ungraded misdemeanors .

Hey United;  Just think, this article was put out by the same guy that refused to print anything about the DuBois hotel and that gave you  inexpensive fecal material when you called him out on that.  Wonder what condiment he's using to get that crow more palatable?  LMAO!!!!!!!  I bet it killed him to have to publish it.  ROF,LMAO!!!!  Glad you wouldn't do anything like bring that up to him.  He'd probably have some cut and paste excuse to use anyways.

Amazing thing about the comments to articles, I never see them anywhere. Guess they go into his private bin for fodder for his editorials.  As for a reply, I've never received one from any of my postings. Which brings to mind, "Thank You!".  After this Kronos experience among the things I've acquired is I now speak out.  Actually, I speak out more when something is wrong instead of trying to quietly work behind the scene.  In spite of all its ills, I hope the Kronos experience has brought to everyone some positive change in their lives or something that will benefit them in their future.  Life is a learning experience; in the School of Hard Knocks odds are we all got Bachelors or Masters out of this one.

I agree...I think out of all this everyone can take something positive out of it.  With that said....I got a private email from Denny at the Courier Express...of course my comment on his article never showed again.  But here is his response as well as mine to him.   This man just rubs me the wrong way.

Denny, 

Last time I spoke to you, you had every excuse under the sun.  Noone expected you to find crimes...as a matter of fact...noone expected you to do your job.  We handed you the information on a platter and you ignored it...We uncovered the crimes for you...told you about them in hopes your publication cared enough to do a story on them in hopes that the people in your area being affected by them could get some help as they did elsewhere.  Unfortunately you whole excuse was you had no business reporter.  Its really no big deal.  I just find it amusing.  Thanks for taking the time to reply though.  Glad you could find the time to write to defend YOURSELF but not the same people that buy and read your publication.

Have they removed everything that says Crowne Plaza?  I have not posted it yet but They had until march 15th according to federal documents to remove it all.  Go figure...Crowne actually had to take them to court just to get their name off stuff.  And thanks man...am glad to be back....been way to long...

I sure hope they're pissed off!  I'm waiting for the day Chuckie has to make full restitution for his crimes.  I don't know about anyone else, but I sure think those dollars amounts stated by the PA AG seem a little thin.  Don't know who was counting the beans but think they overlooked a few cans.
Loved the blog!!!
