     EARLVILLE, Iowa (AP) - A woman has been accused of making unauthorized payments from the account of a youth sports organization in northeast Iowa.
     The Dubuque Telegraph Herald reports (http://bit.ly/2t46Et5 ) that 42-year-old Kimberly Snyder, of Earlville, is charged with fraudulent practice. Online court records don't list the name of an attorney who could comment for Snyder.
     A state audit says the more than $8,500 in improper disbursements including more than $4,000 in utility and loan payments for Snyder's personal residence or personal vehicle. She'd been secretary/treasurer of the Earlville Athletic Association from 2012 until its board removed her from the post last year.
     Officials also say they discovered nearly $2,900 in purchases from vendors not related to the association's operations, such as a pizza parlor, a flower shop and a satellite TV company.
