Came to me at Fox & Co in 1979 to do audits on his 3 partnerships, which were then vended into a reverse merger as TRI-VALLEY CORPORATION. Said he knew we did McFarland energy reverse merge in 1976 (see McFarland below), and wanted to do the same. Lynn Blystone located a shell company in Denver, having moved there from Bakersfield 5 years earlier. When TVC reverse merger was approved effective by SEC in June, 1970, Beach dropped dead! Blystone fired Fox, and hired Carpenter Khuen, & Sprayberry to do audits, as a friend of theirs, Professor Jimmy Barnes, became successor to Beach. Two years later, Barnes was drowned in Kern River rafting incident, Blystone moved back to Bakersfield, and re-hired Fox & Co. in 1985 I joined with Pete, and talked him into taking TVC as a client.
