Child care center rescued by local "economic stimulus"

SITKA, ALASKA A non-profit daycare center in Sitka appealed to the assembly this week (Tue 1-27-09) for a short-term loan to cover a cash-flow crisis, and walked away with a $50-thousand dollar grant, and a $200-thousand dollar line of credit.
Assembly members considered the windfall for the Betty Eliason Child Care Center a form of economic stimulus for the entire community.
