Vets home resident says Rose's claim to get money back is unfounded


Tony Rose, a former resident of the Hastings Veterans Home, has been fighting the home since January for the return of nearly $48,000. The home presented him with a retroactive maintenance bill after he received about $50,000 in social security back pay. Some residents, however, aren't convinced he has a right to the money.

Donald Weeks currently lives at the home and, like Rose did, is working with a lawyer to get social security payments he's being denied.
