With more than $7,200 missing from the Dewey-Humboldt Little League coffers through alleged theft by former treasurer, Dawn Whitaker, the association's officers are trying to raise money to finance the remainder of the regular season and the subsequent All-Star teams.

DHLL president Dale Poole said they were able to recover a little more than $1,000 in cash that Whitaker had not deposited from a spaghetti dinner in March and recent concessions. But the league has nearly $4,400 in unpaid debts, including field usage to the Humboldt school district, Little League registration fees, and an APS bill.

"I wouldn't be as upset if the bills were paid," Poole, in his second year as DHLL president and third year as an officer, said. "We will continue to operate. The loss of money mainly affects All-Stars."

Poole said from now on, DHLL will use two-party checks and conduct weekly reviews by all four officers. They won't replace the debit card, currently held in evidence by law enforcement.

DHLL's 14 teams, with 174 boys and girls ages 4-15, need help to complete the 2012 season.

Supporter and Prescott Valley Police Det. Danny Oen has organized a yard sale and activity day for 9 a.m. - 4 p.m., Saturday, June 9, at Mortimer Farms, Hwy 69/Hwy169 in Dewey. Amenities include a bounce house for the kids and a concession stand with breakfast and lunch items.

Across the road, Galpin Ford will donate proceeds from a car wash.

DHLL extends special thanks to Mortimer Family Farms, Freedom Station and Galpin Ford for their help, and to Mikrut Physical Therapy, also a team sponsor, for a $100 donation.

DHLL now asks the community to donate items for the yard sale. Call Dale Poole at 928-533-1170 or Danny Oen at 928-632-8278 for pick-up.

To make a monetary donation, call Poole at 533-1170, or mail checks to Dewey-Humboldt Little League, PO Box 99, Dewey, AZ 86327.
