Even club fed doesn't have a golf course for inmates


One thing is pretty sure:Where peter f.Burnham, the disgraced expresident of brookdale college, is likely going, they won have a golf course.Burnham, who pleaded guilty july 24 to a number of the charges against him for siphoning money from the college into his own pockets, is scheduled for sentencing sept.21, and the Monmouth County Prosecutor Office is asking that he get five years in the pokey.If he hadn negotiated a plea agreement, he could have faced a lot more.

Burnham case was just one more in a county where a culture of corruption prospered for decades, and where so much money was changing hands that at one point, the person bribing the official gave him tips on what chemicals to use so the money wouldn rot when he buried it in the backyard.

Last year, a 91page audit commissioned by the brookdale board of trustees found that at a college where parents and students were scrimping to pay their tuition and fees, the president was raiding the cookie jar.For example, although the board had agreed to pay burnham initiation fees to the navesink country club and his annual dues, the audit found that over a threeyear period he had signed for, and been reimbursed for, $15, 000 in personal charges for food, clothing and alcohol, and a $1, 829 banquet for the departing vice president of the college.In total, burnham had charged $27, 555 in questionable fees to the college during that threeyear period.

As i wrote in a column after the audit was released, that was enough to pay the entire tuition charges for 15 county students for a semester, just so the president could enjoy some quality time on the links.That, apparently, was just the tip of the iceberg.Superior court in freehold last week, the guy admitted to using college credit cards for noncollegerelated business to the tune of more than $10, 000, and to defrauding monmouth university and the federal government of about $20, 000 in student aid.

According to the independent, the greater media publication that covers the college, burnham received free instate college tuition for his children, paid directly to the university.The story, quoting a press release from the prosecutor office, said that after being reimbursed by the college for his son 201011 school year tuition at monmouth university, burnham and his son submitted an application for state aid for the same school year, which they received in the amount of $20, 000 paid directly to the university.Later, when the university noted the overpayment in tuition funds, it issued burnham son a check for $20, 398, which burnham then cashed in his own personal bank account.In his guilty plea, the 68yearold burnham, of colts neck, also admitted to making false expense claims related to his position as president.When he submitted those claims for reimbursement, he admitted that he lied to justify them.

He was having a high old time treating himself and his buddies with illgotten gains, but that all came to an end when his shenanigans came to light last year, and he was forced to resign as brookdale president.Heck, they even froze the $623, 060 in his retirement account.At the time, his attorney said that his client was innocent and that the facts would come out at trial.Looks like they came out all right, and the president was a crook.If he wants to get in a little more golf, however, he better do it before sept.21(Although he have to pay the greens fees out of his own pocket for a change).After that, the best he can hope for is a decent pingpong table for inmates with good behavior.Basically, it was the same sort of warning you see every year, but it doesn hurt to get a reminder from time to time.

Those stories always make me chuckle, however, remembering a story turned in by a young reporter back in the days when i was still a handson editor.Her story was very similar to the one in the news transcript, except that she kept writing about rapid bats instead of rabid bats.She had misunderstood the information she been given, but she stood her ground when i questioned her.

You sure they warning people about rapid Links of London Bangles bats?I asked.

Would they need to do that?I asked.

They apparently fly very fast, and that makes them hard to capture if they get Links Of London:http://www.countrypixel.com/ in the house, she said.

How do you capture a rapid bat?I asked.

She shrugged her shoulders.Never had to catch one, but my dad says a tennis racquet works pretty well.Tried that tennis racquet trick the next time i found a bat flying around the attic, and you know what?It works like a charm.

On a personal note, our first grandchild, aubrey marie bean, was born to my son padraic and his beautiful wife, kim, last week on july 24.The name, which means elf, or magical being, was chosen, in large part, by her parents determination to reject any name that they could imagine ever being used by a stripper(I was a big proponent of mercedes).She arrived almost 10 days late, which does not bode well for future suitors hoping she be ready on time for a date, but she and mom are healthy, and that all that counts for now.I will say this:We won meet her in person for a couple of days, but based on photos i seen, she the most beautiful baby ever born, and doesn look a thing like winston churchill(Sadly, many babies do).Welcome to the world, sweetheart.Gregory bean is the former executive editor of greater media newspapers.
