Boys and Girls Club faces problems

Officials with the Boys and Girls Club of East Mississippi say they have been facing some financial problems but conditions are improving.
There was no answer at the club Monday because the phone had been disconnected. But Angela Payne, president of the board of directors of Boys and Girls Club of East Mississippi, said this morning the phone bill would be paid today.
Payne said due to a transition in leadership, the timing was off in requesting some needed funds. She also said the board will be meeting with regional directors to help forecast the club's finances.
Attempts to reach Darrell Weir, director of the Boys and Girls Club, were unsuccessful.
Steve Cobb, former president of the board and current board member, said the club is strong and the board is committed.
Louis Sutton, president and chief professional officer of the United Way of East Mississippi, said volunteers associated with the organization have been asking questions and he is trying to find answers.
Betty Lou Jones, who also serves on the Boys &Girls Club board and the board of United Way, said she did not attend the last monthly meeting of the Boys and Girls Club.
