My name is Michele LaVecchia and I have struggled for weeks over how to present a very disturbing situation. To those who read this forum in the spirit for which it was designed, I apologize, and to those who post on this forum for the sole purpose of defamation and misguided malice, I offer you the following.
Ove the last year, my family has suffered unspeakable acts by certain members of the community. This behavior started after my father's difficult decision to terminate the manager of The General Store after discovering the tremendous amount of debt his negligence had incurred. My dad's decision to purchase the BGS was inspired by his love for Belmont and his commitment to its beauty and prosperity. In purchasing the building, he took on the daunting task of assuming all of its debt.
Many folks would have closedthe doors and boarded up this landmark building by now, but my father chose to recruit me, for 2 years, in an effort to partner up and take on the challenge of keeping the BGS open, alive, and available to the citizens of Belmont and its visitors. Throughout all of this my family has become the focus of many malicious accusation and false proclamations. My parents have suffered undeserved abuse at the hands of Mr. Scott C,and his wife. My patience and ability to remain silent in the interest of grace and good taste has been tapped out, and now both my sister and I have fallen victim to Mr & Mrs C's fabricated accusations.
Many of you have witnessed the bad blood between Mr. C and my father - this is not news. What IS news is the ugly backstory spawning this ill will. Rather than take responsibility for his poor choices and failures while managing the BGS, Mr C chose to take every opportunity to deprive my parents of their earned right to a private and comfortable existence in the town of Belmont. Over the last 16 months my 74 yr old mother has been stalked and tormented by this man - followed to the gracery store, PO, work, and anywhere she goes. She has been 'greeted' on many occasions by this man at her home, waiting for her arrival, as he literally jumps from a tree in her courtyard with his UNEMPLOYMENT check in hand, screaming, "Boy, thses unemployment checks sure come in handy!" He was caught urinating in her presence, leaving broken toilets in her yard, with a gloved plunger flipping her 'the finger', along with constant truckloads of trash and waste being dumped at her fence.
Enough is enough ! He has stalked my sister at every turn, driving by her home over 21 times in a single day, and doing the same to me. He has pushed my father to his breaking point by his harassment and feigned 'peril.' Even my brother was forced to call the Belmont PD as Mr. C made lewd and disgusting remarks to my 12 yr old niece. She is now afraid to come see her Aunt at BGS. She is 12 yrs old !! My mom is 74 !! My God, Mr. C - Have you no conscience?
My dad treated you like a man - offered you a lucrative position and you failed to step up. Now be a man and step back - he asked you kindly many times - MAN UP, Mr. C, and take the children, women, and elders off of your chipped shoulder and your cowardly hit list !! Its embarassing and will no longer be tolerated.
I am tired of you ! And to those who use this forum for real and relevant issues, again, my apologies for having to post with such an unpleasant topic. BUT, the preservation of my family and our earned rights to respect and a peaceful existence in the town which we love, has trumped my usual display of decorum. Any negatives comments to this post are expected, as that seems to be 'the southern way' but I will not respond and have said what I feel is appropriate.

Questions:

1. If things have been that bad... why no restraining order?
2. What kind of person airs their family's dirty laundry in a forum like this?
3. How can we know you are who you say?

This seems weak-minded to me.

I have read many post thru out the past 2 years and it is true what she says, and it comes down to anyone who prospers is always attacked. And if he buys Kimbrells or sales whatever, the only way it concerns anyone is if it hits your pocketbook, and as you can see they do not need anyone's money. I really think alot of the bad mouthing is simply jealousy, I mean dont hate a man or family because he is better off and has money, that shows your true colors. Anyone who contributes to the bad mouth and lies, well I feel are jealous of a families money, so get a damn life. I dont live in Belmont, I live in Cramerton and can see the green in your eyes from here and hope they can use anything to stop this harassment, and furthermore your messing up our gossip on the fire department with all your post!

Hmmm, some serious allegations here, but this seems like a legit post from a person with actual experiences that could be easily debunked if not factual. Now can this Mr. C debunk her claims, has he not been uninvited on their property, has he not been tailing family members and offending children? There is one person that can counter this and obviously needs to do so, otherwise no defense would be rather telling. If these allegations are in fact true than it is a pity for a grown man to act in such a manner. If the allegations in this post are spurious than the shame falls the other direction. So......

You did OK until you made the "Southern Way" comment. I must say that really rubbed me the wrong way. Is the "northern way" being so obnoxious no one can stand to be within earshot of you? Is the "Northern Way" driving your automobile onto sidewalks were innocent bystanders could have been walking or standing. You mentioned several times how old you dad is, is he really a good enough driver to be driving a 4000 lb vehicle at high speeds on the sidewalk. As for trespassing, the "southern way" is to put a bullet in the head of the trespasser. If you are threatened by someone on your property without permission, you have the right to defend yourself.

Belmont General Store had no debt and the building was not mortgaged when Mr. LaVecchia purchased it. Please correct your statement immediately, Michele.

Just the fact that you seem to enjoy sharing your family business with anyone who will listen tells us a little about your character. What you have trouble understanding is that you wont gain ANY pity on this or any other forum. And right or wrong, people are not going to feel sorry for people who live in a 2 million dollar home. Your problems aren't any more important than anyone elses. Your 250 word pleas for people to feel the way you do about your father will never happen. People will never change. You and your father will never gain EVERYONE'S respect so you might as well quit trying. You should deal with your personal problems in private. If you and your family are as you describe them, people will see it for themselves.
