It hasn’t changed and it won’t change. “If you’re active in drug activity, we will find you and we will see that charges are brought against the individual or individuals,” said McKenna. Supt. Paul Dorathy assigned Bob Bezek, school district attorney, as spokesman for all information regarding the alleged use of illegally obtained drugs prior to the Sept. 8 game at Paola. “The administration at the high school has received allegations of violation of the law and school policy,” said Bezek. “An investigation was immediately initiated and, as to most of the allegations, has concluded.”
