Now that the New Year is here the Christian County Senior Citizens Center is seeing the effects of the stopgap budget come to fruition. The Senior Center will lose $30,000 in money from the state and this will cause them to cut back on both lunches and transportation. Gerry Mahr, Director of the Senior Center said lunches will be canceled for Wednesdays until further notice and transportation will be limited for those days.
Mahr said something like this happened a few years ago and they had to cut back on lunches for a while, but they were able to get enough help from local people to bring those lunches back. They hope to be able to something like that now, to hold them over until a new budget is passed.
