Bill McFarlin is the one who signed the tax returns.  I agree the Board 
has some responsibility there.  The Executive Director should not have 
100% authority and he should be functioning at the pleasure and taking 
direction from the Board. It would be interesting to see the job 
description of the Executive Director.   ALOHA
