SANDRA ROSENAU, Richland
Regarding the Richland Community Center, which is a lovely multipurpose facility, I too have observed problems with scheduling. My family was taking a class, scheduled at a regular weekly time slot in one of the rooms, for which we paid a monthly fee at the start of each month.
Unfortunately, every now and again, the center would schedule some other event on top of our class and bump us from the room, without apology -- take it or leave it. I could never understand the rational for their decisions. Why didn't our regularly scheduled class have priority on the space? After a year of this, our class moved to another location, where we have not been "bumped" since.
Thank you, bridge players, for standing up and speaking out.
