Dear editor:

Temporary wealth affected a group (without public input) that decided it would be a good thing for Moultrie to have an arts center.

For their own reasons, they are weary of supporting what they decided to create.

Now is a bad time to transfer support of your project to the general public.

I ran up against a brick wall from the president of the Arts Council at the time when I supported the arts center with golf tournaments for a year on a monthly basis.

The president nor any members of its council ever showed up at Rogers Gardens Golf Course.

We hand-carried the money to the arts center after each tournament.

Mr. Leigh perhaps does not get it either. These same people will, on the other hand, use their influence to purchase or block an undesirable Albany group from buying the old hospital site.

Sour grapes, no. Understanding reality, yes.

Tom Rogers
