The YMCA of Metro North opened its gyms with a cautious and phased reopening plan this summer. It completed its plan in early September and is now fully open for its members.

“Anytime Fitness in Peabody and the BSC in Lynnfield just closed their doors and we want those members to know we are open and ready to welcome them,” says Kathleen Walsh, President and CEO of the YMCA of Metro North association. “We’re here for our community. The Y has been keeping people healthy for 160 years and we don’t plan on going anywhere anytime soon.”

The YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas has received a $100,000 grant from Reliant to create Racial Equity and Innovation centers in nine Dallas YMCA locations. The funding will support the centers, as well as the Catalyst Initiative, the Y’s response to COVID-19.

Pulaski County reworking proposal for voting centers

LITTLE ROCK — Voters in Pulaski County will be able to vote at one of 12 conveniently placed voting centers during the 2020 election after the Quorum Court and Election Commission confirmed the plan in August.

County officials are already looking to expand the plan for the 2022 election for ease of voting with an ordinance that was to be discussed last week at the Quorum Court’s agenda meeting on Tuesday.

Justice of the Peace Doug Reed, the ordinance’s sponsor, pulled the ordinance after some thought about cost but said later he would like to continue to pursue the idea after gathering the thoughts of others.

“I realized that it was going to cost too much and I couldn’t vote for it myself,” Reed said. “I’m going to reintroduce it. I just have to talk to people.”

Currently, 17 states, including Arkansas, allow counties to use the Vote Centers alternative
