Final update and now I know why I did not buy the LBS when I had a chance.

We tried everything to remove this chainring/crank arm(drive side). Final solution was to cut the chain ring with a welding torch and use an industrial strength gear puller to remove the remaining bit. The plastic shifter guide on the bottom of the bracket was melted in this process.

Bottom bracket finally removed and replaced. New crankset, chain, cables, guide and we are back in business. If this were charged by the hour for all the grief the bike which is a $100 bike on Craigslist needs to bring $300 to break even.
