      epresentatives say despite the short fall, no local programs were harmed, there was enough in reserves to cover the cost, and this years way of doing things will be a little different.


      United Way co-chair Smith Ellis said, "We're now going to give you the exact number that we bring in, we wont be giving you a projected number, always remember those numbers are just something you shoot for and hope to hit."


      The luncheon to kickoff the 2013 campaign season is next Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. inside the Civic Center Heritage Room.


      Join us for Daybreak on Friday morning to hear from Smith Ellis and other campaign co-chairs.
