Your View: Questions

JOPLIN, Mo. — Yes, I am writing again. This time I have questions.

1. Why did the city of Joplin have to hire someone outside of Joplin (even outside our state) to tell us how to rebuild our city? Do we not have enough smart people here?

2. Why do we have to build a new library when those people that live in the towers are elderly and enjoy going there?

Build the medical school on 20th Street.

We need to think of the elderly people also.
