I was in the paper today!!!!

As I called our Football President today to check in , the first think out of his mouth was "Did you hear?" Hear what????

Apparently the police report I filed last Friday made todays West Sacramento newspaper front page...

let me backtrack---

I am the league treasurer, last year I was on the board as volunteer...fundrasing coordinator-I was in charge of a cookie do fundraiser, as well as a Monte Carlo night... during these events league checks started bouncing, it was strange as I had turned in all monies I collected...

The treasurer stopped showing up to meetings and just made a small appearance at the end of the monte carlo night..(so we could give her the money!)

Fast forward to May 08, as we started the new board meetings, I was asked to step in as new treasurer, and was voted in, our President suggested I call to get the laptop, and all the documents from the old treasurer, he thought that perhaps since his attemps failed, and I didn not directly work with her, that she would comply-- this is where the wierdness starts...she said on the first conversation in June that she would bring me the stuff- then no show, I even invited her to the first meeting. Then I had a legnty conversation with her, and she said she needed invoices and what nots from the President. This seemed wierd becasue these were items she as treasurer should have had in her possession. I left her a final message to drop off all the things at my store, so that she would have to deal with "me".

Also about this time, we vote her off the board, and with a paper provided by the bank we were able to boot her off the account and then access all the bank records. Unfortuanly the board made the mistake of not looking at what she was doing...after all she is a mother with 2 children in the program....trustworthy right????

Wrong...There were over 11K in cash withdraws, I would say most of that is unauthorized and unknown, 2 payments to Direct TV, and over 400 in NSF fees...

As a board we keep this quiet, and start the bank looking into these withdraws (still pending) we make 2 certified letter attempts to get our property back( laptop and paperworks)

heres where the really wierd stuff happens, or where her stupidity shows its face...

Oh yeah, I forgot, she enrolled her kid in football, the nerve!!!

So our demand letter for the property, as well as her last $25 payment must have hit her nerve, becase she shows up to the field as practice is ending, with some form she found online from the attorney general-- saying she reported us as an illegal 5013c, and emebzzlement etc...we ask her again where the property is, and she says she turned it in to the attorney generals office...(wierd!)

Now isnt that calling the kettle black!

This last Saturday she shows up to the game, and based on the fact she did not return property, she was not in good standing and we decided to not let her in...

she raised a ruckus and the police were called to escort her out...

she barged into my store Monday and threw a paper at me, telling me I could make a copy.. it was a porperty receipt from the Police Dept... dated that day and 1 hour previos..

so she in fact lied, that she turned in the stuff previos to that wed, she had just turned it in!!!!!!

sooo I tell her to step outside my store, and I make the copy...

she goes on to tell me her laywer will be contacting us...yada yada...

Helen actually has to tell her to leave, becasue she is causing a disturbance at the store...

I file an incident report for documentation...just incase she decides to come back to the shop I can call the cops on her ...

so today, apparently the press can take the police/fire logs and choose to make articles out fo them, so they choose to write about my report filed about the ALLEGED 11k embezzlled!

I attened the High School Booster meeting, so I missed her appearance tonight as she accused our president of embezzling from the vendor they got the shirts from--she is trying to accuse him if getting a 'kick back' --but I have all the records!!! I have outstanding debt to resovle becasue she didnt pay bills!

I am confiident justice will catch up with her, and what we are now doing on the board is well documented and justified to run this program.

I do this becasue I enjoy it, I want to participate in my childrens programs while giving them their space....

I like to volunteer, it takes my mind off my troubles..and gets me out of the house so I dont have to clean it....(Heheehhe)

So, I was in the paper today, not for something fantabulous,...but rather something, that some moron did, and I am a witness to it.

Ill post more as it unravels.....
