Little league has been over for about 2 months and still nothing has been done about the "thief" who is embezzeling money from the league. This has been going around for months and from what I know, the league President, V. President and District 5 rep all know about it and wont do anything to stop this person.....I think ALL johnson co. parents who have children playing little league ball - girls AND boys - ought to DEMAND that Mickey Widner do something about this......this person is "robbing" our children.
I know someone who has paper work from the bank that at least 1000.00 have been used inappropriatly for PERSONAL things. If all else, maybe we should report this to the sheriffs department and have it investigated! anyone have any legal advise or ideas how to get something done ..... since the president is afraid, or has dirty hands too. i think charges need to be placed against the individual and they ought to be thrown ought of having anything to do with JCLL.......after all, they are a board member with all access to the bank account!
what do you all think? call Mickey, call Freeda, and anyone else and MAKE do something about this - its gone too far!

Hey Mickey, WHY are you not doing anything about this......are you involved too. yeah, this WOMAN needs to be charged and taken out of the L.L organization for good!
Also, Mickey do yo know you can get in trouble FOR NOT doing anything about this.....if the HEAD office out of Williamsport gets involved, you'll go down too......
Too sad

That person would be Jennifer Icenhour, anyone involved in little league knows she was in charge of accounts. Her kids team received brand new baseball uniforms though, imagine that. Phil Winters was contacted & will not return calls, but there is a board that was set up through the city to deal with these issues that the board members cant deal with because Jen won't even show up to the board meetings. U need to contact city hall to get in touch with this board. If they won't address it every parent needs to call Williamsport or call ur Southern Region office which I think is n Florida but u can find all this on the LL web site.
such a shame

Isnt the board "supposed" to meet at least every month .......they did when i was on it..........its supposed to be either the president or v. president who calls the meetings......maybe since president isnt doing anything then the v. president should step up and call the meeting......I know several of the current board members and they have said they want something done and want a meeting but Micky is ignoring there calls - Frieda should step up and call the meeting!
AND it wouldnt surprise me if it is Jennifer.....being that she is the treasurer and has access to all the money to do the purchasing.....isnt she required to report all deposits and purchases to the board? i also heard that George Wright his been told about this.....isnt he liable to report it, considering his position?

IF it is Jennifer they her ass needs to be charged with embezzlement and made to pay back ALL the money. She needs brought down off her "high horse"! she thinks shes invincible since shes a board member and an umpire.......yeah, I'd say its her after you think about it - her sons team ALWAYS had the best equipment and uniforms - while all the rest got used/broken/old stuff!
I've seen her walk into the concession stand and just open the cash drawer and take out wads of money and but it a bag and go on with it.........wheres the accountability in that? who knows how much shes taken and just walked off with it?
SOMETHING DEFINITLY NEEDS TO BE DONE ABOUT THIS - ITS NO WONDER THE LEAGUE NEVER HAS ANY MONEY, SHES GOT IT ALL!

If this is true (and I suspect that it is), then every parent that had a child play in the JCLL should step up and DEMAND that something be done. Why on earth would the League just let this go?? Who exactly does she think she is that she can steal from children and just get away with it. I heard that the parents of the Little Leaguers had to pay for their own banquets at the end of the year. That is disgraceful!!!Someone needs to grow a "set" (Mr. Widener) and do something. I can tell you this, my kids wouldn't be playing next year if something didn't change.

By golly, that old adage really is true: Kids' sports work fine until "adults" get involved.

Honestly, the board has tried to confront her with this but she will not show up tho the monthly meetings & they do have them once a month or more if needed but Phil Winters needs his phone rang off, he is our district adm for 5 counties including JC & he lives dwn Laurel...calll him & like I said contact the board that was implemented to handle corruption thru the city council. Call city hall & get a meeting set up with parents. The LL will vote in a new board in Sept or Oct, everybody watch ur newspaper & go to that meeting it will b on a Sun, vote ur Pres & treasurer OUT. Freidas hands were tied, Freida tried to help make things right she is a very good person & wld make a good LL president. Its like in ur govt,ur president has final say so Freida cldnt do nothing with Mickey still n place. Why do u think they had so many board members resign & girls softball got nothing all year. Jen even made the decisions on tournaments, no kid got to play tournaments. Pathetic. Go to that LL meeting next month & vote the problem out. Oh & by the way LL did make our LL hire a PCA, so they r investigatins. Hope she has receipts. Diane Osborne nvr did nothing wrong, she is an honest person & the Jen Icenhour we r disacussing is not Michaels wife, NO comparison there.
honestly

Amen! LL in MC is all about politics. her kid plays the whole game,EVERY game,but if you are an "outsider" your son or grandson might play 2 innings! Disgraceful! meanwhile, we as parents, and grandparents can only sit there and shake our heads in disbelief!
