I read this article on WMPM's web site. I also read a much more detailed article in today's "The Selma News". The idea is for the founding of a Boys' and Girls' Club of America in Selma. I am sure that the program is fine. Selma already has a parks and recreation program for children the the taxpayers are funding. I would even donate to such a private organization, provided that it is indeed private. The main issue that I have with donating to that organization is that I have read news articles of funds from a similar organization to The Boys' and Girls' Club being taken from the organization and given to Air America. Air America is the liberal talk radio network that has failed miserably since its inception. Liberal, hatefilled pundits as Al Franken helped start Air America. If they come to Selma, I would sincerely hope that no funding would be so embezzled.
Here is the short news blurb from WMPM's web site:
Boys & Girls Club America May Open Johnston County Chapter - An informational meeting was held this week to discuss creating a Boys and Girls Club of America in Johnston County. The proposed BGCA club would be located in a building at the old Selma Elementary School campus. Regional officials said it would take $75,000 to $125,000 in funding before the club could open. Local citizens spearheading the effort would like to see the club opened by the summer of 2006.
