On June 3, 2014 someone writing by the name of “Duke Reichert” contributed an article to the MemoryHole blog entitled “Gut Feeling: Something is Wrong with Newtown.”
In that piece, Reichert indicates, among many other things, that two personages with ties to Sandy Hook — Jim Champion, brother of Nancy Lanza, and a Dr. Alexander Isgot — each have histories that place them in the very curious locale of Summertown, Tennessee.
Summertown, TN is what is known as “an intentional community”- basically, a commune. To reside there, you must be brought in by a member of the group, and the group votes and decides if you can stay. The community does its own farming and in co-op style they attempt to barter and trade goods and services when they can to keep to themselves as much as possible.
A couple decades ago at the height of free love and flower children, Summertown TN had over 2000 people – “members”. Today, it is barely thriving at 800 with the last of the members hanging on to the good old days. What on earth were Jim Champion and Dr. Isgut doing there? What are their ties to a commune down south, and how do these threads all [connect to] Connecticut?
Summertown may well have been and may still be a commune, but it also appears to have been tinged with intelligence-related activities ... and came complete with a charismatic personality (a former professor from San Francisco State University by the name of Stephen Gaskin) of the sort frequently associated with cults ... regaling a Summertown / Sandy Hook Church of Christ flock.
You read that correctly: “Sandy Hook Church of Christ.”
