Charity lied about helping veterans

Attorney General Andy Beshear announced today that his office assisted in shuttering the doors of a charity that misled thousands of donors by claiming contributions supported local veterans. The settlement between 24 states and VietNow National Headquarters Inc., which also uses the name VeteransNow, dissolves the Illinois-based nonprofit corporation. An example of the organization’s conduct is reflected in their most recent financial statement, when VietNow reported raising nearly $2 million nationwide with less than 5 percent of funds going to charitable programs. Attorneys General in California, Illinois and other states also launched an investigation into VietNow, which led to Kentucky’s involvement and the present negotiated resolution. Beshear also reminds Kentucky donors who are not familiar with a charitable organization and how they use their money to verify what percentage of their income goes to the charity’s purpose on CharityNavigator.org. Additional research tools and resources can also be found on the Attorney General’s website.

Kentucky Basketball — Blue Poison

Blue Poison—By John Huang

LEXINGTON, Ky. — Opening night at Rupp Arena for this year’s version of the UK Basketball Wildcats was surprisingly unsettling. At halftime, Mark Pope’s Utah Valley University Wolverines led Kentucky 34-25. The young, but talented kiddie Cats looked disorganized, disjointed, and shell shocked. Despite Coach John Calipari doing all he could in the preseason to intentionally set the bar low for his squad, no one could have limboed lower than the Cat’s first half performance.
