Your letter indicates that your Board believes that the new stadium would not prevent or interfere unduly with the nor- mal operations of the center", the letter states. However, Burdettes letter continues:"In order for us to agree with that judgement, some questions need to be an- swered. These questions are not intended to be stumbling blocks to your moving into this project, but I believe they are serious questions which need to be considered and answered by you and your Board before you move to take action which might impinge negatively on a curricular aspect of the Summers County Schools' pro- gram in order to make pro- visions for extracurricular act- ivities." The letter goes on to the topic of funding for the purchase of the land and cites an affidavit that accompanied the notice that a State warrant (check) had been sent to the Summers County Sheriff. The affidavit, according to the letter, "indi- cates that of $41,392.56 which was sent to you specifically for the purpose of purchasing this site-S20,500.00 was from Voca- tional Education Act of 1968 funds, and $20,892.56 was from State Vocational Education funds used to match the Federal Vocational Act of 1968 funds." The letter goes on to explain that "State or local funds used to match Federal dollars must be spent under the same regu- lations as Federal dollars." The letter then shows that only 10.2 percent of the money used was local and that Appalachain Re- gional Commission, State and Federal monies made up the rest of the total project. Burdette's letter then poses the eight questions of an access road to the island for the farm field and stadium on the Career Center property is a deviation from the comprehensive plan which the State Beard of Edu- cation has approved for Summers County", the letter says. Board member Donald Hannah said that he thought the letter "reasonably determines that Federal funds were used", eventhough Summers County Schools Treasurer Joe Kessler explained in great detail at the previous Board meeting that the funds in question had been coded as State funds by the state, the county and the State Tax Department. Kessler said that if Burdette took the respon- sibility of seeing that Federal funds were used he should also take the responsibility for funds being released with improper codes, if they were indeed mis- coded. Simmons said he had talked to Burdette by phone as late as 2:30p.m. on Thursday afternoon and that Burdette had threaten- ed to cut off funds to the Career Center. In the discussion that followed, Kessler said Burdette could possibly cut off Federal funds that amounted to about $14 thousand per year. Hannah then moved that the project at the Career Center location be dropped. Board member Jim Doyle seconded the motion. Dr. P. B. Camara asked why Hannah and Doyle wanted such drastic action. Camara suggested going along with the eight question, and , after Kessler's explaination of the coding of warrants, said that the land belonged to the County, and it all seemed per- fectly simple. Simmons asked Tassoo how long it would take to respond to the letter and Superintendent "lassos said that a letter could be prepared the following day. Tassos added that he felt the letter was exactly what it pur- ported not to be, "a stumbling block". Tassos also said that most of the questions were obviously considered by the Board before the necessary motions were made to respond to the earlier request. Tassoo said the questions such as "Is continued on page 8 WHITTAKER Jack Whittaker, 59, of Jump- ing Branch, died Saturday at 1:30 p.m.in a Fairfax Hospital in Fairfax, Va. after a long illness.
