Letter to the Editor

Historic buildings are important

Sunday, November 18, 2007

To the editor:This letter is in response to Mayor Jay Knudtson's misguided comments regarding the buildings on Broadway. On the evening news he stated that some of the buildings downtown were known only for "being old." Mayor, I implore you to take a look at your surroundings and learn something about the history of the town you run. Why are the leaders of this community so quick to raze a building just because it requires a little work? I sure hope you have a good family surrounding you when you get old and require surgery or a wheelchair.

ROZZ FUSILIER, Cape Girardeau
