What happened to the other peole that worke at STAND? Are they still there or are they gone too? Since STAND is a non-profit the records should be public available.

If Denise is no longer with the STAND program, why is her name still on the website listed under TESTING SERVICES?
Too much is not adding up. Maybe STAND is hoping that they can get her to come back.

Use your head. They may be trying to hold on to the fact that Denise may come back. I do know she QUIT and was not FIRED. I am sure that Trent Coffey and Judge Cotton know just how valuable Denise is to the program.

Oh I like Denise. She is great but just because she isnt off their site doesn't mean she is still there. Either way more than likely they havent changed their site

Okay, the way I understand grant money is that it is deposited into county funds and distributed to each program that it has been allocated for. So if Trent taking money from the program that are not justified and it is found out that he has in fact misappropriated funds that should have been used for the program that he is responsible for running then the county would be responsible for paying back funds that were used illegally. What I want to know is does anyone think that the county can afford to pay back money we just simply do not have in our budget, as well as lose future grant money for our schools. It's a shame that one person can ruin a good program that has the capability to help so many.

The way grants work is the county is responsible for the way the funds are allocated. But then the county can go against the person or persons who misappropriated the funds. If Trent has een doing the things said, he could be in some really hot water. If he is bonded then he may be covered. There are alot of unknowns in this equation at this time. Sounds to me like an audit should be required by the grants. Not an audit for STAND overall.

really? His brother in law is the county attorney. Yes the same attorney who has been involved in losing our hospital. If mark blakley was county attorney we would still have our hospital. At least that is my opinion which is shared by many. Who you vote for matters!!!!!!!!!

Isn't the county attorney appointed? And the grants, aren't they federal grants? If so, would that not be federal charges, not local charges? Just alot of questions that are swirling around in my head right now.

I thought judge cotton was over these programs? To me he has always seemed like an honest person even though some people want to trash talk him. I know he was in running to replace judge white and I don't think that he would stand for Trent to continue running this program if he thought Trent was misusing funds. It may be federal grant money but I don't think the judge would stand for someone stealing it.

STAND has a board of directors. It is an incorporation. Judge Cotton's name is not on the site page. I do not know if he is still active in the STAND program or not. Regardless, it would be Trent Coffey in the "hotseat" as EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR.
Since this topix is not about Judge Cotton I will reserve my comments on that subject.

Why do you think Denise was FIRED and not Trent??? Not taking up for anyone here because I think they are all in the wrong. I hope no one gets away with his one and gets "CAUGHT UP" instead!!!!
