    When properly communicated and carried out, the words, “We’re watching you” can be powerful.

    They apparently haven’t been uttered by the board of trustees for the Cannelton City Schools.

    Who was minding the cash drawer for the school corporation as hundreds of thousands of dollars were being diverted? And why were most of the diversions not detected or acted upon until a state audit was conducted?
