Board Member Johnny Miller confirms the center takes in more than 30-thousand dollars a month, but he says there's not enough money to pay the bills.
Asked whether money is missing, Miller said: "not sure what the money situation is. That's one of things we're trying to find out," he said.
He says there's no reason to believe- -at this point- -that the Downtown Learning Center will have to close.[7Weath
