Verification please

The substance of the following information is verifiable by going to the Putnam County website or the courthouse.
The following comment from “answers” under the “audit committee” post seems verifiable, but we would need someone to get to the Putnam County Courthouse. This link to the site seems to follow the same trail. One more verification ought to do it. I cannot do it myself for several days. Does anybody want to carry the flag for a while? Let’s get this done and over.
If this is true, what a shame and disappointment it will be. If it isn’t, then let’s be on to better things.
Bad decisions or even mismanagement are bad enough. But if this is what it appears to be then there is another, much more serious issue at stake. We may not need an election or resignations, the feds may step in and remove these people.
There is at least one more comment under “audit committee” that relates to this.

Answers – spent some money, asked the proper people, received some great help!

  1. Bettasso (FRANK) claimed the Pawnee Ct, Lake Thunderbird property as a marital asset.
    Sorcic scrambled in 48 hours with his attorneys (Isaason and Tracy) . Produced a new written trust agreement reflecting only Tony and his two sons having interest in the property. (No Dona Sorcic having ZERO ownership)

    Sorcic advanced the CASH for his mistress to purchase the property.

    • And Kim signed as owner to have the garage built. Tony sure had the money to pay cash. But how does CFNB come up on the tax bill? Is the bank involved somehow, or not? I mean involved financially. . .

  2. Isaacson & Tracy should be investigated for conflict of interest. They may be on the hook for future claims/suits against them and the bank. If they tried to keep Tony Sorcic out of the spotlight at the expense of the bank and its shareholders, then they should be disbarred. The gall!

    OK, it may be said that it’s just a rumor. But how many rumors have come true, so far?

  3. The $275K settlement between the bank and Kim Bettasso was surely drafted by attorneys. Who? I’m guessing Angel, Isaacson & Tracy, the bank’s local attorneys. At that point, Tony Sorcic was still president and on the board – presumably calling the shots? Surely, the board’s approval would have been required for any such payoff.

    The board of directors must have been asleep at the switch, or worse.
