  • One time PCUD director caught charging $95k in personal expenses to district

    When auditors opened the books at the Powell Clinch Utility District, they found excessive personal charges and weakness in other areas for the utility.
    Del Roberts, the one time Powell Clinch Utility director, racked up $95,059 in personal expenses he attempted to have PCUD pay for, the report said. The audit, conducted by the state comptroller’s office, was focused in the time between July 1, 2008 and December 31, 2009. However, state officials did note that as needed, that scope was expanded.

  • Ridenour named interim

    Sharon Ridenour was greeted with a rousing ovation as she took her place next to chairman Mike Orick at Tuesday night’s board of education meeting.

    After a nomination by board member Rector Miller the group voted unanimously to name Ridenour interim director in the wake of former director Dr. Michael Martin’s abrupt departure from the system Friday.

    While Ridenour may be new to the director’s chair she is no stranger to education.
