DLBP Executive Director Jaime Watts gave her annual financial report to the council during the evening meeting.

    I have read most of the articles written by LNS regarding this organization and attended the council meeting where the council questioned the city's financial support of this organization.
    It seems to me, Mr Warren put them on notice regarding financial abuse and accountability---thank you Mr. Warren for standing up to the group and for alerting all to what I view as abuse.
    Ms Watts and her associate may do a nice job---we should expect nothing less.
    From my seat in the bleachers---I do not believe the city council should continue to " award" tax dollars to this organization.
