Cheatwater? Sounds like a name that many companies and banks should have. Best, Don Bauder

I think Missionaccomplished was referring to accusations that cafeteria workers at the Sweetwater Union High School District stole $500,000 from the district.

Yes, that is probably correct. His reference apparently went over my head. Best, Don Bauder
