Can you believe today's front page news in the UNL? I mean if that don't get rid of some of the rumors I don't know what will. All this during the time the school board lead by Brian OAKS was complaining to county commission of a budget crisis. I find it hard (well not really) to believe that things like this were going on to line the pockets of the School Board Chairman and Patterson when we couldn't even get our kids to school on the buses because of no money. What do the other school board members have to say for even being a part of this theft? Why were the county commissioners not more demanding of the facts? Not sure I understand the part about the electronic checks. Are they saying Brian could sign these checks without question or that Goforth was part of this theft?

Remember fine citizens,,,I'm sure this ONE issue is just the tip of the iceberg as they say.If this much money has gone missing over 1 deal,imagne how much more has disappeared before our eyes.Drive by the homes of Coppock,Goforth,Oaks and you will see where the money has most likely gone.'
Also now they need to investigate Gerald Smith as his company is given the painting contracts,and isn't Mark DeVaults father in laws company the one who gets all the heat/ac contracts?? Just saying they need to check into this too.
Time for an honest change

Where is that guy on the news that investigates things like this? Somebody call Fox, Wate, Wbir and the secret service, we need help? Where is the Attorney General? Somebody signal Batman!!!!!!

Real question, if all this info is coming to better light, not just for Brian but others mentioned who may have questionable contract influenced by family, whose job is it to
(1) seek criminal prosecution
(2) seek civil restitution
(3) place these people on some type of administrative leave from their position
(4) demand their resignations
(5) at the very least take their voting power, influence and check/contract writing privileges away

I can see the Knoxville News Stations, state auditors and TBI setting up camp
Maybe we can get a good deal on porta potties at the campground
Nuff said
Moving on
Very Disappointed

This should show incompetence for all involved. How can u be on school board and ok these kind of transactions. It either says you r incompetent or your on the take. It is a sad sad sad sad sad day when taxpayers, students and teachers have all had to pay the price for the people we elected with the trust to do the right thing. Very disappointed right now.

I was disappointed, now I'm pissed, did you read what the Attorney General had to say just inside the second page of the UNL? Thieves by any other name is still a thief!!!!

Why didn't anyone care enough in the meetings to stop this? They are all guilty of standing by while this happened. Are they even awake during the meetings? Did they think it would never come out that bids were not done? Sometimes I just don't get this county and the ignorance of the people who elect these people time after time. Is money so important that we have quit caring about the reason we support our public schools...for our kids.

If you are referring to Mr OAKS and the infamous Ms OAKS I would think they are cowering at home or waiting in their attorneys offices.

Is there a way a person can pull up UNL on the web if a person can't get their hands on one?

Look stupid azz I asked what the man did wrong? I did not ask for just your opinion or your smart mouth attitude. If you dont know what he did wrong then why are you on here running your mouth everyday for? I did not read the news leader or anything else. I do know it is election time and people running against others get very nasty and try to come up with crap.. I agree with the other poster do something about it or shut up! If you have proof take it to who you need to and get it going on if your just going to run your mouth then enough of it already.
