New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 27, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas HeraldZeitung O Sunday April fll SA Candidates From Page 1 was discovered in the fall audit and Williamson immediately replaced the money The board and I met with the auditors in December to go over the audit and thats when it came Williamson said Thats the first any of us had heard about Pine Tree ISO board president Jan Sansom said the transfer involved almost million However she said the board does not believe Williamson was involved in the incident We have no reason to believe Dr Williamson had anything to do with that or knew anything about she said The districts financial problems surfaced in midDecember and in January Williamsons contract evaluation went before the board Sansom said that at that point there were still a lot of questions about what happened and the board opted to not act on the contract until it had a better understanding of the situation The board is expected to take the issue back up Williamson has slightly more than two years left on his contract with Pine Tree ISO That contract evaluation came up right on the heels of this We just felt we needed more Sansom said We just felt like we could come back to that at any Williamson said he agreed with the board regarding the delay in acting on his contract extension He said the board also delayed the administrator contracts as well We just felt like the timing wasnt he said Shepperd said since the discovery 1 of the deficit steps have been take to rectify the situation She said Williamson and the board have developed an internal management plan that is expected to be approved next month The plan has checks and balances in it to prevent something like this from reoccurring She also said a solution was found for the deficit He and the board of trustees have worked out a plan to build up our fund balance to financial security Shepperd said Williamson said if hired he would bring the checks and balances j procedures with S Braunfels could be doingia lot of the steps already but that he would want to look at the procedures Its been a real learning experience for us and weve done a lot of extensive research into how to prevent this he said If NBISD does not have similar procedures wed discuss how we might do it because I think its a real Court rules tobacco is a drug GREENSBORO AP A judges ruling that the government can regulate tobacco as a drug has thrown cigarette companies already reeling from lawsuits into a nightmare scenario opponents said In a landmark ruling from the heart of tobacco country Friday District Judge William Osteen snuffed out the industrys biggest arguments that Congress never intended for the Food and Drug Administration to regulate tobacco and that the government has not proved tobacco is a drug court finds that tobacco products fit within the Food Drug and Cosmetic Acts definition of drug and Osteen wrote In a victory for the tobacco industry Osteen ruled that the government could not restrict cigarette advertising Appeals are likely This is not the last word on that said Bert Rein an attorney for Brown Williamson Tobacco Corp Its not unlikely that this will go to the Supreme THE FINAL DECISION The NBISD Board of Trustees will visit the home district of the leading superintendent candidate May 5 and 6 The board is scheduled to make a final decision May 7 Source New Braunfels Independent School District good idea to have something like this in In addition to the two plans Williamson and the board have sought a second auditing firm to look indepth at the circumstances Because obviously when something like this happens you want to know how and Shepperd said The NBISD board of trustees Thursday interviewed Williamson for the second time for the superintendent position Williamson said he does not know what impact the financial problems will have on his application but said even very good districts go through times of Weve had to correct it and go on with providing a good education and thats what weve he said Trustee Leo Chafin said the financial issue was raised during the first interview by Williamson Chafin said Williamson explained the situation to the trustees and gave them copies of the paperwork detailing it He said I guarantee it wont happen and I think thats a plus for Chafin said Im very glad he was up front about it which speaks very highly of Trustee Bette Spain she was very concerned when she initially heard about the situation However she said it was a mistake that was not very obvious and once it surfaced Williamson took adequate steps to handle the situation Now that I know a lot of the details its not as big of a concern to she said Trustee Steve Weaver said he would review the information to determine how it effects Williamsons application Personally what Im doing at this point is reviewing the situation and trying to make my own he said Trustee Anne Miller said she felt like Williamson was being honest about the situation and has been very up front The board is looking into it though she said Were looking into it and were not going to do anything thats going to do anything thats going to hurt our Miller said Everyones being very candid about Trustee Sylvia Sanchez said she only had a portion of the information surrounding the issue and did not want to comment Board Vice President Carlos Campos said he could not comment on the topic because the board had decided to have the districts public information officer handle all statements regarding the superintendent search In an interview on Tuesday Connie Milligan past president of the PTA said Williamson is the best superintendent the district has ever had She said he has created an advisory panel and a sitebased team to give parents a louder voice She said he makes sure parents are well informed and parents can go to him with any problem and know he will do his best to rectify it She said he is also involved in the community and will serve as the United Way president next year four best value Centex B I LLLSplUS Copy Paper is always on SALE Adobe Safe 6293979 is cover the freshest
