Daily review photo by Jackie Page Sullivan county May Stop daycare by Scott Miller Sullivan county a director of childrens services said yesterday the county May discontinue its daycare program due to an impending loss of title 20 Grants to fund it. Doris Beinlich childrens services director said the loss of the funds which this year could amount to $64,562, would be due to a a variety of reasons a some of which have affected the eligibility of potential participants and some the amount of participation in the program.
