No dodge, but Educate Springboro is not directly connected to the teachers, coaches, administrators, or Springboro Education Association union operatives, nor to any of the aforementioned's email lists.<quoted text>
What does that have to do in response to the post:

Not affiliated, but DIRECTLY connected.
Again, way to stay on topic.
But if you would care to offer your insights on the questions below, that would be helpful to the readership at large.
Regarding the sudden interest in developing plausible, but risible, defenses for the indefensible acts portrayed in the State Audit report from December 12, 2013 and Mr. Holtrey speaking with the Dayton Daily News April 13, 2013.
The "everybody else does it" defense did not work with Mom for a good reason.
Who is Mr. Holtrey telling the truth to when asked about summer camps?
The Dayton Daily News report who he tells:
Q – What about the summer camp accusation?
A - Somebody made an accusation to the state auditor’s office that coaches were running camps (and keeping profits) and that was fraudulent.(The school board) won’t even share with you what the accusation was.… It was not an investigation. They were following up on an accusation that in my view was a flagrant accusation with the intent of causing problems that there was never any truth to.
Or the state audit investigator who Mr. Holtrey tells
State Auditor Report
Springboro Community City School District

"1. Springboro Boys Basketball Camps
A bank account was maintained by Troy Holtrey, the former Springboro High School head basketball coach and former ATHLETIC DIRECTOR who operated the camp. Mr. Holtrey indicated that he had been operating camps for approximately 20 years. He believes he opened the account in 2004/05 per the request of the Superintendent. Prior to operating his own bank account the camps financial activity was accounted for by the Springboro Boosters. Mr. Holtrey indicated that after he had paid for all of the expenses (camp workers, t- shirts, basketballs, etc.) related to the camp, he considered any funds remaining from the fees he collected to be his stipend.
I wonder what Mr. Malone thought when he read both of these polar opposite statements?
Particularly the first one.
