Bauer and Baisden had formed a partnership a few years ago, which has now been dissolved as a result of this action.

  2. Comment on the webpage "My Experience With Glacier Mountain Academy", by Rick Becker, August 17, 2010

    In the next month or so, this website will go defunct. GMA has closed and Larry is unable or unwilling to pay his debt. It has been up 3 years. I hope it has helped some who may have stumbled upon it. Good luck.]
