Letter to the editor: Memorial stays

Thanks to all who participated in signing the petitions to keep the All Veterans Memorial as it is at Trailside Park in Pequot.

To those who aren't aware, there was a proposal by the city council earlier to move the memorial to a more prominent location when the city plans to totally redesign Trailside Park in the near future. The bill to move a 21-ton memorial would have been a joke. No logic or common sense to the whole idea.

So we threw out some public petitions, ended up having 832 signatures in opposition to the move. Need we say more? It's official, the word just came down, the memorial stays as is, council decision.

Like I said before, it was a bad idea from the start;832 signatures agreed. Thanks again to all that signed.

Jack Schmidt,

Pequot Lakes
