Congratulations to Anne and well deserved! It's been my pleasure to know and work with Anne over the years and I have many fond memories especially of her two youngest girls.

I guess the Chamber decided to overlook the 2009 Senior Olympics debacle, when Cribbs reassured City Council that the hotels were full. Yet a newspaper checked the hotels and found they had lots of vacancies. The city never said how much they lost on that fiasco.
