I have struggled wholeheartedly the last 2 days with losing my friend Joe or even knowing what to say. Because my heart has had me at a loss for words. He always stayed so optimistic and was right there through my battles with area plan and zoning speaking up and fighting the Communist party in Jennings County Indiana. Joe and myself shared a lot of passions and hated some of the same as well. We strived together for one day being the ones to bring forth the light on the corruption of Jennings County and North Vernon City officials. We always had wild ideas and he wanted nothing more than for me to open another Parlor or Venue of some kind so he could continue being the resident DJ. He was such a activist in the LGBTQ+ Community in Jennings Co Indiana and was one of the straightest men I know! But he truly just wanted to see everyone loved the same. His highlight was seeing and meeting the queens as he blasted the amazing tunes they performed to at the Scoop. The Impact the Queens had on Joe will surely still be with him in his next Chapter of life. His earthly body has left behind his wife Linda daughters Zoey and Madison and grand baby Elliot to in which I will always be sure to let Elliot know that CB loves and will always be with him. I can hear Joe saying it now CB loves you little man! You were beyond an amazing friend Joe I assure you I will have better words as I continue you think about that I will speak at your funeral as we depart with your earthly body. As Joe would say and say to all the negative people that pull people down and try dulling their shine. YOU AINT S**T. Love and miss you Joe. Take care of my Foxy because she loved you to death and you are the only one she would currently know up there!

Still miss and think about all our supporters would love you all to show support of you supported Scoop Of the Loop ice cream Parlor and if Joe made a impact on your life please join us at the Dove & Sharp Funeral Home.

Sincerely Joshua Carlton

FREINDLY REMINDER THESE ARE THE KIND OF BIGOTS THAT RUN JENNINGS COUNTY! THEY WOULD HAD VOTED AGAINST THIS GIVEN THE CHANCE!

Did you know?

Dear MoveOn member,

On Tuesday, the U.S. House of Representatives voted on a bill that would codify both same-sex and in*******al marriage into federal law. 157 Republicans voted against it.1

The bill was written explicitly to combat the clarion call made by Clarence Thomas in the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade that Supreme Court decisions about LGBTQ+ marriage, access to contraception, and consensual relationships between LGBTQ+ people should all be overturned as well.2

And 157 Republicans, including would-be Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy, voted against protecting the equal rights of millions of Americans.

We simply cannot allow a party fueled by bigotry, racism, and hatred to control our government.

More to the situation with the Owner that owned the Icecream Parlor. Proving the stalking of the Taylor's and the neighbor in Mason Co Kentucky. More to the proof that the neighbor was sent to do illegal acts to obtain evidence of a cabinet Mr. CARLTON owns and was clearly forfeited by the Taylor's. All this will be turned over to the District prosecutor of Mason county Kentucky. To in which proves the blatant stalking and harassment towards Mr. Carlton.

It's been said with proof of the claims there is trafficking going on in between the sheriffs department and afew offenders housed at the Jennings County Jail. For the benefit of monetary exchange. MORE CORRUPT ACTION WITHIN THE BOUNDARIES OF THE COMMUNIST COUNTY! Evidence has been sent to officials in Indianapolis because we all know how Sheriff Freeman loves hiding evidence especially if its drug evidence and it involves his own family.

07/20/2022

Heads Up Jennings County Alittle Scoop on the truth! Jennings County and the North Vernon Police department being Dectective Thayer is beyond corrupt along with the Taylor's. They filed a bogus deceitful case against Joshua Carlton the old owner of the Icecream parlor in town. The Taylor's had 60 days to remove personal effects from the property when Mr. Carlton purchased this property. Which the Taylor's date to have items removed came and went. There was a large oak cabinet that is in question here! It was in horrible condition from the ceiling leaking on it and covered in mold. Because we all know how the Taylor's keep their properties downtown. So instead of chopping it up and throwing it away. Scoop of the Loop icecream parlor decided to redo the cabinet. Replace wood rot and find all the other parts scattered through out the building and restore it. To in which all recipets and forfeiture has been turned over the judges office. Plus since I owned the cabinet it was also on my insurance policy to in which was also turned over. The corrupt detective Thayer would had known all this if Joshua would had been contacted. But instead he went to the court with a one sided case and they issued a warrant for joshua arrest. Also to add to the scandalous behavior they issued it to be a (sealed) warrant so Mr.Carlton did not know about it and would be blind sided and wouldn't have had the chance to present his evidence on the case! But that didnt go as planned for the deceptive county of Jennings. Also to add before the warrant was issued they needed proof that the Cabinet was in Carltons possession. So the Taylor's and detective contacted a neighbor of Mr. Carltons and still keep in contact with him to this day. Had this neighbor trespass into Mr. Carltons home all the way in Mason Co Kentucky to take pics to obtain the warrant. To in which charges are being filed in Mason county against the detective the Taylor's and the neighbor in question. The video evidence was submitted to Mason County Kentucky sheriff Patrick Boggs. Mr. Carlton did not want this case looming over his head during his recovery from spinal fusion surgery so he decided friday to just go to Jennings County and take care of this fictitious warrant. Apon coming back home after his best friend did all the driving. He checked his mail and there was a letter from jennings county prosecutors office and the warrant had been dismissed. Jennings County is a s**t show and beyond corrupt with there Communist ways and not caring about the effects and the safety others in their own county or State. Now there're they're trying to bring the state of Kentucky into the game! But the state of Kentucky can see through the s**t covered glasses of Jennings County!

07/06/2022

Keep an eye on this page we will be unveiling more scandalous behavior from the jennings county prosecutor's office and unfortunately it may seem the judges office! Hiding cases and not giving case numbers out. Also, disregarding motions filed. Will post the whole story later!! Scandalous and disturbing and disgusting Jennings County!

THESE ARE POWERFUL WORDS THAT JENNINGS COUNTY NEEDS TO HEAR! I AM VERY THANKFUL CINCINNATI OHIO HAS REALIZED THIS! Apathy is the cancer of community and rarely does it stop until it has effectively destroyed its host. Apathy sneaks in at night and parades on in when everyone is watching. It’s a silent killer and it announces its presence from the sagging rooftops. Apathy gives no s**ts. That’s actually kind of its thing. It doesn’t try to hide and it feels no need to be subtle. No community is immune to its effects and it takes hold in rich and poor towns alike. Apathy is a lack of shame and it is devastating. It erodes everything people took generations to build and there is no corner of society it doesn’t affect.

My college economics professor, Robert J. Gitter, discussed the concept of wages being sticky-down in nature. Meaning wages move up easily as the market improves, but do not move down in a similar fashion. This is because it is easy to pay people more, but things get a little complicated when it comes to paying people less. Apathy works in a sticky-UP fashion. Communities almost always grow more apathetic and rarely grow less apathetic. Decline is much easier, improvement takes work. Standards are hard to uphold and easy to ignore. Maintenance is simple to put off. My former community, in Ohio, had steadily succumbed to apathy throughout the second half of the 20th Century, but the community has been fighting like hell for the last 10 years to claw its way back. Apathy arrives with ease, but doesn’t leave without a fight. I can see signs of its arrival in my current community. A storage facility being constructed where no storage facility belongs. Commercial buildings no longer being maintained. Codes no longer being enforced. Signage ordinances getting ignored. Most look past these apathy indicators because the residential areas remain immaculate, but I know how the story unfolds. It’s a neighborhood with means, and while most think apathy is only a curse of the impoverished, the wealthy are just as susceptible because they assume resources can fix everything and so they are often blind to the signs. Money gives people the means to fix things up, but it doesn’t keep people from lowering their standards.

Apathy destroys communities. The simple act of not caring is all it takes to lead you down the path of rampant disinvestment and a rash of other social problems. The road to apathy is paved with declining standards. I read once, awhile back, that the standing ovation was losing its meaning because people were doing it at every show. While I certainly understand the desire to recognize someone’s talent and artistic contribution, it’s true that when we demonstrate the highest level of regard for everything, it no longer remains a high level of regard. I never paid much mind to talk of participation trophies because it always seemed to come from people with different politics than my own, but now I understand the point. When the standard used to be that the winners would receive a trophy and now everyone receives a trophy, we diminish what it means to excel. It probably isn’t without consequence as a society, to disincentivize excellence. I have noticed my school district has more than one tier of honor roll. My daughter that worries herself sick to get straight A’s makes the honor roll, but my other daughter, who is a little more, shall we say, “carefree” when it comes to grades, also makes an honor roll. This is nice for the dimmer one, but doesn’t send a great message to the bright one. The idea of lowering standards is not without merit, in fact it makes a lot of sense to lower standards. It should make life easier and make everyone feel better. And it does… until it doesn’t. Because the overall cost of lower standards is, in the end, everyone feeling worse. By holding up mediocrity as exceptional, we are thereby diminishing what it means to be exceptional. In treating average as above average, we are in essence lessening what it means to be above average. The numbers just don’t work. True achievement doesn’t come by lowering the bar, it comes from the sense of accomplishment we feel in reaching a higher bar.

The problem is not just about rewarding mediocrity, it also is about removing disincentives and penalties for substandard performance. We know that when we want to shape a behavior, we must reward the behavior we are hoping to foster and discourage the behavior we are hoping to diminish. We understand this with kids and pets, but adults are no different. The same logic applies to running a city. We set standards for a reason. We set them because a community made a collective decision as to what it wants to be. We know that standards shape behavior so that is why we use them. Standards are a means to strive toward and achieve greater outcomes. Lower standards have never led to a single improvement.

Apathy is everywhere. It’s stifled our voices, it’s made us uninterested and has told us to stop thinking that we deserve better. Apathy has made its way into our cities, and it calls downtown home. It’s apparent just upon looking, that most downtowns were built with very high standards in mind. That is why they all are constructed with quality materials, have a consistent appearance and stand the test of time. It is only in lowering our standards over the years that we have fostered blight. At some point, someone made a decision to no longer uphold the standard. How does this even happen? How have we forgotten to marvel in craftsmanship, in quality, in the place that we call home? The stories from town to town are common. A building code enforcement officer retired and no one ever replaced her. The city budget was tight and funds were diverted elsewhere. Lean times make for tough decisions, but lowering standards never ever results in a turnaround. We have all seen this play out in the restaurant industry. A place starts to struggle, so hours are cut, the quality of food suffers, service declines. All of these are measures to try and make ends meet and all of these measures ensure a worse outcome. The savvy business owner knows that this is a critical time to figure out where to make improvements. It doesn’t take much to start down the path to apathy. When we stop enforcing building codes and design standards, we aren’t just giving one person a pass, we are sending out a signal to everyone that it’s okay to do less. The bar has been lowered, please proceed accordingly. We send out a message that everyone that has been keeping up appearances are suckers because you can get by with less. When downtown buildings begin to decline in appearance, so do the businesses. Quality businesses locate in quality spaces. What kind of businesses do you think are best suited for poorly maintained buildings? I focus on apathy in downtown because it’s the heart of the community and everything spreads from the center. This is where apathy begins. When the most visible part of the community begins to show signs of decline, it affects how people feel. If people derive their sense of identity from the downtown, what are the effects of it looking like s**t? People don’t toss litter in a clean and well maintained place, but there is no sense of shame from trashing a place that is already trashed. Apathy robs a community of its self worth. It tells the community loud and clear that this is just how things are now. The impact of apathy on a community is devastating. You wonder how apathy takes hold? Imagine an entire community bearing witness to the steady deterioration of its most beloved feature. Imagine watching something that defines you, something the town founders built, and something you are immensely proud of, slowly march towards obsolescence and decay.

I believe apathy and lower standards are closely tied. It has been my experience that in communities strug

gling with dysfunction and rampant apathy, lower standards are the norm. This is understandable. These are the communities that have had every bit of bad luck. These are the places today’s economy left behind. I don’t believe apathy was at the root of their decline, but I do believe it’s at the root of their solution. We can tell that all of these towns were once immensely proud and didn’t feel the effects of apathy. We can tell because we have the buildings, the photos, and the history books to prove it. In knowing this, we realize that they didn’t decide to become apathetic, but times change and with less resources, communities decline. I am not oblivious to the fact that having less means to maintain your wardrobe, your car, your home, or your city is going to lead to feelings of apathy. Shrinking community resources are very much what got us into this mess, but an increase in community resources isn’t necessarily going to be what gets us out of this mess. Pride is the enemy of apathy and pride can’t be gifted, pride must come from within. It won’t just come from grants or benevolent donors. A community won’t fundamentally improve through handouts. This is the same as a participation trophy isn’t it? Don’t get me wrong, an increase in resources is critical to lifting up struggling communities, but it won’t ever provide people with a sense of accomplishment or help elicit feelings of pride. A community must improve from within, less no external application can take hold. A town must have ownership in its revitalization. We must work on raising standards and rebuilding a sense of pride if we are going to be able to effectively combat apathy and put such resources to work. I have witnessed millions of dollars in grant money and hundreds of hours of expertise provided to struggling communities go to waste because the city receiving them wasn’t capable, or ready, to make use of them.

We have to take a different approach to community revitalization and understand that our current economic development based strategy isn’t working in every city. We have to look deeper and consider what causes apathy and how we go about curing it. We have to raise our standards and ask more of one another. We have to, at times, be less sympathetic to the individual and consider what’s best for the community. Because in the end, when a community improves, the individual benefits, but the converse isn’t true. We can’t make exceptions for every rule breaker and code violator and expect it not to have consequences. We have to remember that people meet the expectations set for them. When we lower expectations, we aren’t doing anyone any favors, but when we raise them, we are giving people a gift. We have to be apathy warriors and call it out when we see it. We have to be willing to have frank and open conversations about what is acceptable and what isn’t and more importantly, a plan for when we encounter the unacceptable. Will we step out of our comfort zone and say something when we see it? Standards are meaningless without accountability. These conversations should take place on every block and at city hall, they should take place in every board room and around the dinner table as well. What do we want as a family, as a neighborhood, as a non-profit board, as a community and what are we willing to do to achieve those goals? What role does each one of us have to play? What are our responsibilities and what are the consequences for not living up to them? Wouldn’t we all rise to the occasion if more was asked from us? Wouldn’t we all find reward and a sense of satisfaction and meaning in holding ourselves to a higher standard? Wouldn’t we all be proud of ourselves and our community if we worked together to bring about change? If we were to do this, apathy would lose its purchase. Apathy would cower back into the corner where it belongs. Apathy would slink back into the darkness from which it came because apathy can’t survive in the face of pride. We must fight back against apathy with all of our ability because continuing to manage decline isn’t an option and more importantly because, F**K APATHY.
