A youth center in Beatrice has closed less than two years after opening, lacking steady funding to sustain it.

Dorothy Zimmerman heads the 429 Factory board of directors that the
center "could never get on solid ground financially."

The youth center opened in August 2010, offering a place for
youths to go after school. It had game tables, a basketball court
and concessions area, among many features and activities.

Board member Christina Lyons says members were charged $25 to attend during the school year and $10 for the summer.

More than 200 students were members.

The building owner says he'll find a new tenant.
