Three callers corrected her misconceptions

To the Forum:Regarding the letter I wrote last week on the perceived lack

of audits at the Humane Society, I sit corrected.

According to three of my

callers there have been yearly (successful) monetary audits.


misconception I labored under (myself and 90 percent of the reading public)

came from the media releases that most certainly made it sound like Mrs. Hoe

was fired because of a monetary lapse.

It turns out that the firing took

place because of incorrect intake/euthanasia figures.

Wow! I guess Mrs. Hoe

should have been sitting in the parking lot with a calculator all this time,

not out raising literally millions for the Society and then having the temerity

to trust the totals given her by her over-worked staff.

If these figures

were of such prime importance I stand by my original statement (now altered) —

where was the board when these important figures were compiled?
