A stone castle with turrets and parapets, a wrought iron staircase, marble fireplace and more than 25,000 square feet of space overlooking Cheat Lake is for sale for $2.8 million.Remember if you are going to buy a castle you will need lots of scratch. Anyone can steal to get the money. Only smart people get away with it. Sherrin Daniel was not one of the smarter ones. She was a found guilty of embezzling nearly $16,000 from WVU while working as an accounting assistant at WVU's International Center for Performance Excellence.
A criminal complaint alleges that Daniel opened a PayPal account and then used university-issued purchasing cards to transfer money into that account. From there, it was then transferred to Daniel's personal bank account. The complaint also alleges Daniel used a university purchasing card to pay a utility bill and used a supervisor's name and Social Security number to obtain satellite television service.She was sentenced to 1-10 years suspended and ordered to pay back the money. She will be on probation, have community service (150 hours) and be forced to accept an MBA from the Mylan Puskar Business School.
Stories like that take away from the genius that goes on everyday at WVU. Such as this:
The beer pong table cost over $1000. If they added the term "baby" to it the table costs would have doubled. I spent the weekend working on securing baby items for the upcoming baby tummysticks. The wife even got a baby bargain book. Every item in the "bargain" book was the same. You can get the cheaper one but it will more than likely kill you and/or the baby so you should get the most expensive one. Thanks bargain book. Also you will need at least two of everything because infant stuff doesn't work for newborns. So newborns get roughly $5,000 worth of stuff that is no good anymore in 6 months as they become "infants" and you have to replace it all. And people wonder why parents go insane.
