JB has been sent NEW-additional critical information click here regarding the individual (Mr.Veal) who stated in a public hearing that he was a managing partner in the company that was requesting the zoning variance for the Tack Factory. The conditional use permit was requested for a low income housing development. The Forum was in possession of existing records pertaining to his criminal, financial & business records during the Stellar process. Because the Tack Factory project was deemed a "headliner" meaning it was hoped to be one of the first & most significant Stellar projects, Forum as well as other social media editors decided to delay the release until shortly following the final Stellar pitch to the state. It was hoped the city & team would address these issues after the Stellar competition but before the Tack Factory project began. The information could have been very damaging to the Stellar application but certainly the city would be at risk regardless if they proceeded with a less than credible person.

The concerns of course were legitimate as many citizens & officials still remember the Mynette Boykin incident which is very similar to Veal's situation. A million dollar deal was in process of being granted to Ms. Boykin, who it was learned just prior to "closing the deal" she was what most persons considered a well practiced "scam artist". Therefore in an effort to balance potential negative impact on the Stellar competition, the information was not immediately made public but instead members of the Stellar team were advised to contact Mr. Veal & those associated with the Tack Factory project. They were warned Veal possibly may not be as reputable and financially stable as he presented in his public statements. Members of the Stellar team & key city staff were informed they would need to be very cautious in dealing with him and/or companies with which he was associated. Members of the Stellar Team were also advised it would be best for the project to have a "different upfront face" than Mr. Veal.

The NEW information pertains to a very recent bankruptcy that would have most likely been in process during the time Veal was representing himself and the tack factory project as "his" & under his control. Overall the Forum & its editors are pleased the community has won a Stellar award, but caution the city that if Mr. Veal is still associated with the Tack Factory project to be cautious moving forward. Jb has a copy of the new bankruptcy filing to consider for public release. As always have a great day. Tami

The new wannabe VSO mostly, probably, incompetent and can not read; stated that her duties as VSO caring for our Jefferson County sick veterans does not include any responsibility for the county veterans transportation program.

The up to date Jefferson County ordinance on County Veterans Affairs
TITLE 12: VETERAN AFFAIRS Jefferson County
Article 5: Veterans
Chapter 13: Transportation
§ 12-5-13-1 TRANSPORTATION PROGRAM.
"The county Veterans Service Officer will act as coordinator of the Veterans Transportatio
Program"

Tell me why the VA van can't take our vets to their appointments in Scottsburg and New Albany. That is just plain stupid.

Next do we have a homeless shelter, I was ask yesterday and I had to tell the person I didn't know,she wasn't from here and said they did have, and she was from a small town also. If we are a stellar community we need to be it all the way.

The county commissioners should hang their head in shame for allowing this mockery of "caring for our veterans" "it's not my job".

The law does not limit or stop the VSO from helping Veterans. Just because it doesn’t itemize every single possible duty or responsibility doesn’t mean the VSO should neglect important tasks. The law doesn’t cover keeping the office tidy or pencils sharp. Nor does it say the VSO has to take a shower and act professionally. It doesn’t say ignore veterans medical needs and decide which vets deserve care or not. There’s a common sense we all have to apply and if someone thinks just because the law doesn’t directly state the VSO will help create programs which assist veterans in utilizing VA programs especially medical care that person is either mentally incapacitated or has an agenda to keep the new VSO from correcting all the misdeeds of the last VSO. The entire town knows Devito was lazy and cruel. Anyone who thinks otherwise was either Devitos drinking buddy or family. It’s one thing to not want this VSO to make Devito look worse than he already does but it’s another to hurt veterans inorder to do that.

It's not the VSO's responsibility!!! Call the Indiana Department of Veterans Affairs...and get educated. ...

Admin reply: Jefferson County writes the check to pay the VSO wages. Any excuse to not do your job. It's not my job.
