Reader wants board response

To the Editor

(and the YMCA):

Well, it has been a week since I wrote my last letter.

As I expected, I have heard from many people who share my sentiment.

But the one group that has been eerily quiet (not surprisingly) is the board of the YMCA.

I have heard stories of board members that refuse to allow a pool to be built, at all. Stories of money being raised, but still no pool.

In one story, there were going to be donations of money from St. Vincent Clay Hospital and the CCSC, but both of these parties would expect referential treatment concerning access to the pool.

Still, no pool.

After living here in Clay County for eight years, all of these reasons sound plausible, if not all correct at the same time.

The community deserves a response from the YMCA board concerning this matter.

If they need some help submitting a response to The Brazil Times, I would be more than glad to help.
