CHARLESTON - A preliminary overview of available surplus funds for the 1994 operating budget for Mississippi County was given Thursday by County Clerk Junior DeLay. The County Commission conducted a public hearing on the upcoming budget, however, no one was in attendance.

SIKESTON - The YMCA is the largest non-profit service organization in America. Locally owned and operated, the YMCA is governed by a local board of directors. In an average Y, a volunteer board sets policy for its director, who manages the operation with full time and part time staff and volunteer leaders. Organizers of the YMCA of Southeast Missouri hope to complete the Founders Campaign to raise $200,000 as an endowment fund within the next eight weeks. Once this phase is completed, an executive director will be hired and a membership drive will begin. Programs could be offered as soon as this fall.
