Hello, My mother who will be 80 in December just looks forward each day to her visit to the Silver City senior center. She says she would be lost without the daily mingling with her friends, sharing laughs,memories, and enjoying a nutritious meal. Please, to those who are in authority, DO NOT CLOSE THIS CENTER. Thanks for listening, Bob Brand

I think the N.M. Agency on Aging needs to order a big time audit of Grant County Senior Center books. Instead of cooking food for the seniors, it appears someone was cooking the books!

It's the CEO (Director in this case) who is held accountable for averything that goes on in a business. A non-profit is no different. Looks like the former director needs 2 lawyers, one to sue and one to defend!! What goes around comes around. ;-) Audit time!!!
