A letter was sent today to the Secretary of States office regarding the Heritage Title Company and their illegal standing:
BUSINESS SERVICE DIVISION
P.O. BOX 778
JEFFERSON CITY, MO
RE: HERITAGE TITLE COMPANY, 2008 NORTHWOOD DR, POPLAR BLUFF, MO
To whom it may concern,
The HERITAGE TITLE COMPANY, which operates out of 2008 Northwood Dr in Poplar Bluff Missouri, is operating without a corporate or limited liability license in the state of Missouri, nor without the proper registration as a fictitious name.
According to your online records, the HERITAGE TITLE COMPANY was notified on December 11, 2012 that their fictitious name had expired and they could no longer operate under that name in the state of Missouri. However, for the past 14 months, the HERITAGE TITLE COMPANY has continued to do business with the CITY OF POPLAR BLUFF on a routine basis. It is my understanding that multiple millions of dollars flow through Heritage’s coffers for a number of projects which include the Poplar Bluff Regional Transportation Development District, the City of Poplar Bluff and quite possibly Butler County and the Missouri Highway commission.
The Sec of State’s website (http://www.sos.mo.gov/business/corporations/fictitious_faq.asp), states:
What are the penalties for not registering?
Failure to register your fictitious name is a misdemeanor under Missouri law and persons failing to register are subject to charges by their local prosecuting attorney.
Since the City Prosecuting Attorney (Wade Pierce) and the City Attorney (Wallace Duncan) are reportedly owners of the HERITAGE TITLE COMPANY, there is little chance that justice will be served and, most likely, their illegal activity will be swept under the rug.
At the very least I hope that the SOS’s office will require the HERITAGE TITLE COMPANY to perform their proper civic duty and register their fictitious name with your office. As a way for me to follow up on this, please forward electronic copies to me (email@example.com) of any correspondence you have with the HERITAGE TITLE COMPANY regarding this issue and the use of that name.
Nice to know Wade and Wallace read my blog. As expected, after we reported our story they registered the name. But the record still shows that from 12/11/2012 until 1/17/2014 they operated illegally, which is a misdemeanor in the state of Missouri:
After graduating from Mizzou with Computer and Electrical Engineering degrees in 1985, Brian Becker spent a decade singing Christian Rock and being a labeled artist with Benson Music Group of Nashville. In 1995, he and several investors started the area's first Internet Service called PBMO.net and by 2000 the company was serviing Internet access in over 50 communities throughout Southeast Missouri as SEMO.net. In July 2014, Becker again made a major pivot and became Publisher of the SEMO TIMES: a weekly print and daily online news and entertainment source for the region.

Presented by Kiwanis Club – Poplar Bluff MO and Kiwanis network of school aged children enrolled in Key Club, Builders Club, K Club and other eager volunteers – ALL hoping to survive the nightmares of Kinyon School. Poplar Bluff is coming at you in full force with the science, the urban legends, the slight of hand and of course monsters of all shapes and sizes.
Come join us for a month of weekends filled with ever-changing Spookiliciousness. And we do mean ever changing. Come one week and have fun. Come the next week, get your mind blown by how different it is now. Come another time and you’ll start to doubt your own ability to remember what is real and what isn’t. This school doesn’t teach anything anymore. ITS LEARNING FROM YOUR FEAR AND ITS GETTING BETTER AND BETTER AT SHOWING YOU WHAT SCARES YOU MOST!
If you’re in school and want to participate – you must be a registered member of one of the Kiwanis groups this fall through the The Boys & Girls Club of Poplar Bluff called The Builders Club and K-Kids. High School students must be a member of Key Club. There will be lots of opportunities to be mentored as we build and design and promote this huge event opening the first weekend in October.
Watch for casting calls this summer for key players in the Haunted scenes. Lots of great ideas and warped “out of the box” thinking going on these days. We are all starting to feel a little mutant.
We’ll stay in touch. Even when you don’t know we’re there, heh heh – we’ll be there – silent but deadly!
