Reader takes exception to story about Gathering Place costs, uses

Your newspaper ran an article in this weekend’s edition entitled “$850K price tag put on expanding Gathering Place for bridge games.” I was at the City Council meeting that was discussed in that article and I did not hear some of what Mr. Munford reported.
