Get the facts on Olive Hill Senior Citizens building


Sept. 26, 2012 —

I have been involved with the Senior Citizens almost since the day this facillity was dedicated and every time we have needed it for our numerous functions or fundraisers, the city has gone out of its way to see that we didn't conflict with other groups that wanted it. The monies raised from rental fees are used to defray the cost of utilities, maintenance and other expenses associated with the upkeep of a pristine facility such as this.

Now to the jigsaw puzzles in question, it is understood that our personal property should be put away at the end of each day, so there is no inconvenience to any other group that may be using this building. The puzzle that was left out was an oversight on our part. I talked to several seniors and they all agreed that this was just one puzzle and it was moved very carefully so that none of their efforts were disturbed.

It is my intent to show everyone that they should do their own research on an important matter like this and not take the opinion of one disgruntled ex-mayor.

The difference between opinions and facts is that facts can be authenticated, and opinions can not.
