Several Northport High School coaches are accused of using taxpayer money to promote a private summer baseball camp.
Officials say the coaches sent out letters using school paper, school envelopes and school mailing labels, with the postage paid for by the school district. Residents say the coaches were wrong and need to use personal funds for such endeavors. Otherwise, they say, the profits from the camp should go to the school.
Superintendent William Brosnan says the coaches told him they were unaware they were doing anything wrong. He says the coaches were embarrassed, apologized and agreed to pay back the district the cost of the mailings, estimated at $800.
