The State Department of Education has claimed that federal monies were used to purchase the land for the vocational center, mak- ing the process of locating 'an athletic field on that property very complicated. Board members J.D. Woodrum, Donald Hannah, Jim Doyle, P.B Camara, and President W.J.B. Simmons voted to begin work on the field after Superintendent D.E. Tassos reported no reply had been received from the State Superintendent although he was advised on March 19 that the County Board had met all the requirements. Tassos also pointed out that someone had called the state office the morn- ing after the last board meeting advising them that the county board had planned to begin construction within a week. County Board Treasurer Joe Kessler reported to the beard that he had researched all records back through 1971. He explained how all funds that came into the school treasury were ceded as to source and said that the monies used to pur- chase the land for the vocation- al Center were definitely not coded by the state to indicate that the were federal funds. Kessler said that the receipt written also indicated that they were state funds and they were entered into the budget as unre- stricted state funds. Kessler said a telephone conversation according to the state, the funds should have been coded to indi- cate that they came from re- stricted federal monies. Kessler said it was his opinion that the land had been purchased with s state funds entirely. Simmons said,"I see only one solution; put a bulldozer down there and see what havvens."
