*singing (to the tune of jingle bells)
"... Oh what fun it is to watch the drama unfold. Hey!
UTS, UTS, UTSCC, Come down off your blind old horse and join the jubilee.
UTS, UTS, UTSCC, Open the books, Throw out the crooks, and make us happy... as can be"
[EDITOR'S NOTE: THIS POST IS A FOLLOW UP TO A PREVIOUS POST]
The UTSCC's real name is the Fort Wayne Community Educational Center Inc. in order to have the Educational as part of their corporate title their primary objectives and functions must meet the titles name eg. Community Education. The primary source for that title or function before 1997 flows from one source Charles Miller, and therefore the source must be reimbursed.
Let me give everyone a basic rundown of the Charles Miller matter. It goes back to the fact that old Chuckmiester is the head of the CAAT program which receives funding from two original sources (as the story goes) one is the Annual AIDS Benefit, which has raised a crap load of doughage that "has stayed in local hands *cough*" and the other is the State of Indiana for some Health program to minority at risk group members who cant receive assistance from normal (read hetero) channels.
The second part of the controversy comes into play when you look at at the fact of how much he did make for no accountability of hours worked in the field. The time sheets were not just rubber stamped they were hardly never turned in and therefore for several years Aunt Chucky was improperly reimbursed with full knowledge by the Board of Directors.
Back in early 2005 when I went after both Charles and Donald Archey I was stopped by the UTSCC by both the Treasurer and Chairperson at that time and threatened with libel, slander, and defamation of character, amongst many other charges.
So if you look in the March issue (pg 20-21, ip 5-6, 8-9) that year of The Rainbow it clearly shows the infringement when one reads between the lines. The last monthly article of that issue was mine. Which was followed by Chucky giving (pg 22) the Annual Service Award (in his own name of course) to Archey to blow over the chaos I had started by uncovering the corruption on both sides.
By September I was forced by the Chairperson to stop running HORIZONS since it was me protecting the kids from those who would assault them that started everything in full swing even after the Archey/Miller issues somewhat subsided. The fight continued throughout the year, until I was banned from the UTSCC under false pretenses because I was uncovering more and more corruption and to top it all of the Center had known felons of certain varieties working with youth and young adults. They sacrificed our kids safety by banning me and others to keep a 75,000 dollar gift which never materialized from a violent sexual offender.
So much for ethics.
More To Cum... eer .... Come!
[EDITOR'S UPDATE: THE UTSCC RESPONDS]
The UTSCC board has not publicly responded to the JG article as we have been working on plans to address some of the issues raised in that article. However, since questions have been asked, they deserve answers.28 October 2007 courtesy The Rainbow Reader Yahoo Group without signature attached.
First, there is no money missing. What the writer failed to state in his article is that month over month for the period of 2000-current, all accounts balanced to the penny. All bank accounts were reconciled to the statements and at no time did any discrepancies appear. We are working to again try to determine why the tax forms showed variances.
Second, as for our "refusing" or "declining" audits as the article stated, we have never refused or declined an audit. Instead, we have not been able to have an audit simply because the center could not afford the cost (estimated to be in the thousands of dollars) of what an extensive audit would cost. We also have not found a CPA who could do this for us either at no cost or greatly reduced cost.
Lastly, we have started working with the Non-Profit Resource Center at the Allen County Public Library. This organization has already given us a wealth of information that we plan to use to reorganize the operation to make sure that UTSCC is not the subject of another article such as the one this month.
