Missing money still under investigation
By Times Staff Writer
Published January 9, 2008
The Dade City Police Department is still investigating what happened to Pasco High School's money. In 2007, district officials said $20,000 collected from athletic events at Pasco High School during the past two years appeared to be missing. The district's former staff auditor of internal funds, Karen LaRochelle, said Pasco High had no gate receipts in the bank for the school's soccer or highly successful and popular baseball games. Police said they hope to bring the case to the state attorney soon.

Sunlake High School will hold a baseball clinic from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday. Major League coaches will conduct seminars for coaches and players. Cost is $40 for adults, $25 for students. All proceeds will be donated to Sunlake. Tom Nieto, first base coach and catching instructor for the New York Mets, will be there along with Rob Thomson (New York Yankees bench coach), Dave Eiland (Yankees pitching coach) and Derek Shelton (hitting coach for the Cleveland Indians).
