Letter to the Editor: The right decision

This is not intended to rub salt in an old wound, but for all you people who were in favor of the four-lane highway (371) going through town, drive out east of Pequot and see the width of the right-of-way of the new bypass 371.

This is not intended to rub salt in an old wound, but for all you people who were in favor of the four-lane highway (371) going through town, drive out east of Pequot and see the width of the right-of-way of the new bypass 371.

When you look at it, anyone will recognize that it would have totally destroyed the town. It's as plain and simple as that. The city made the right decision on this one.

But the fact still remains with the byass, some people were hurt. I often think of Brad Myers who had to leave his home, having lived there all his life. But with progress there's always good and bad. It's always been that way. But I still feel sorry for him and his family.

Pequot Lakes
