I had shopped in the thrift store a couple of times, always felt uneasy. Once I found out some of the background of "Jacobs well ". I stopped, I will not support them
I noticed the other day they changed the name of the thrift store.

The director of Jacobs Well were seen taking some furniture out of the Utica School (their 5000 sq ft apartment)down there a couple of days ago. I would bet they are still involved in the operation of the Thrift Store so don't be deceived by their actions.

The director of Jacobs Well has been reaching out to area churches asking for their financial support with their "mission" citing the women and children clients they serve. Would love to ask how many clients they are currently serving!

It has been 3 years now and they still have only the couple living in the old school building. Now they have raised several hundred thousand dollars over the past 3 years and only helped the couple living in the old school rent and utility free. The questions asked never get answered. Did you all know that the property has been surveyed by Mr. Evanczyk the other day and when he talks he tells people that it is his property. The Question is did the Utica Township Trustee give this asset to the township to Mr. Evanczyk? Yes any property that sits on the same road that the new East end bridge is on is an asset to hold on to but the Utica Trustee just keeps trying to give it away to this man. Did the Utica Trustee offer it to anyone else if he felt it was a cost to the township to keep it? NO. Did The Utica Trustee get it appraised before he tried to give it away? NO. Sounds like the Utica Trustee has something to gain from this deal. If the Utica Trustee was really looking out for his township he would have had it appraised and took out and article in the local paper to get the best offer for the township but this never happen and WHY? Because the deal was made before anyone knew about it under the table so to say. Again why would you give away an asset to the township that once the bridge is finished would bring the township so much money? Under the table deals at their best is why.

Yes the items did come from the old school. They are still supporting Jacobs Wells and I would say the items were most likely items donated to help the poor women that they have never helped yet after 3 years. What a joke and I hope after 3 years people are really seeing this for what it really is just another way to take advantage of people good nature to help people in need. I'm sure the couple has enjoyed living for FREE the past 3 years while everyone else pays for it.

It is still tied up in court but this does not mean anything to them. Their disregards for the law is just unbelievable.
It has been 4 years and they still keep missing leading the people. Last summer they stated in a public town meeting that they
were ready to open up classes for the women. Another misleading statement by them. This also didn't happen. I hear the appeal
will be setting a date real soon and based on the law that is still practiced in Clark County the adjoining property has the rights to
enforce any and all deed restrictions. Look for more news coming in a few weeks on more legal issues facing them as well as the town.
