Treasurer accused of misusing funds County workers report they diwied up funds collected by office By DAVID CLOUSTON The Salina Journal NORTON — Two years after the conviction and resignation of the county sheriff for misuse of public funds, another county official -*Treasurer Valerie Babcock — faces buster from office for the same offense. County Attorney R. Douglas Sebelius last week instituted civil proceedings in Norton County District Court to oust Babcock based on results of a three-month investigation. The investigation, conducted by an agent of the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, was sparked by two employees of the office who came forward with information. Neither Babcock nor her attorney could be reached for comment Wednesday. Babcock has 20 days to file an answer in the court case. Authorities allege that Babcock and three employees of the office were collecting funds from several sources and dividing the money in equal shares among themselves each month. The funds involved amounted to between $65 and $100 a month, Sebelius said. They included funds related to vehicle registrations, including fees paid for copies of a list of each month's vehicle sales in the county. Some of the money also came from a research fee for requests such as searching files for unpaid taxes, Sebelius said. The money should have gone to MRS.

WHINESDAY'S DRAWINGS DAILY PICK 3 7-5-9 KANSAS CASH 10-11-13-15-28-29 Estimated Jackpot $1 million POWERBALL 20-31-33-40-43 POWERBALL 10 Estimated Jackpot $34 million LOTTERY SCENE Category 4866 the county's general fund or spe-'. cial vehicle fund, he said. The petition cites money collected from April 1 through June 28, although evidence indicates the practice dates back to July 1994, Sebelius said. Sebelius said he does not anticipate filing criminal charges. The two employees who came forward have turned in the money they received during the three-month period. The third employee subsequently left the office to join her husband's business, and her position has not been filled, Sebelius said. Besides the KBI and the Norton County Sheriffs Office, an assistant with the Decatur County Attorney's Office also helped with the case. In 1995, Sheriff Myron Cochran resigned following a jury trial that ended with his conviction on 12 felony counts of misuse of public funds. The charges involved nine commission checks sent by South-' western Bell for his endorsement that were not delivered to the county treasurer's office. "What is particularly baffling about this situation was the treasurer was in office at that ,time," Sebelius said. "It leads me to believe there was no question she would know this kind of fund is not approved and certainly it can't be used to supplement , someone's compensation. "Either Norton County has more than its fair share of public corruption, or we try and deal with it when we find it. I'm kind of embarrassed these things crop up but we have to deal with them. I sure don't like doing it. I'm plenty busy otherwise"." 5 dropped from Simpson jury By The Associated Press SANTA MONICA, Calif. — Lawyers for plaintiffs suing O.J. Simpson removed four black prospective jurors Wednesday, including a victim of the notorious "pillowcase rapist." Simpson's lawyers protested the removals, according to sources, but Superior Court Judge Hiroshi Fujisaki allowed the plaintiffs' peremptory challenges to stand. The protest came after attorney Michael Brewer, representing the mother of Ronald Goldman, oust- ed a woman prospect who had said earlier that Simpson would an-; swer to God if he is guilty of dou- • ble murder. Each side is entitled to eight challenges without stating a cause for the first 12 jurors. Each side then has eight more challenges when selecting eight alternates. By midafternoon the plaintiffs had used half their challenges and the defense had exercised one. ON THE RECORD Hospital report Salina Regional Health Center PENN ADMISSIONS — None.
