No respect for architectural history here
In reference to the letter from John Garner, wake up.
You’re in Terre Haute. This place has no regard for history or sentiment about old buildings. Take my advice and don’t go watch them dismantle the old building downtown. It breaks your heart, and you are totally helpless.
I lived on the corner of 13th Street and Margaret Avenue for 32 years. I dearly loved that house, but the city decided to build a new highway through there.
I still think the city never made the final location site. Think about it. What sits at the end of Margaret Avenue?
Walmart. Make your own judgment.
But those of us who were kicked out of our houses were given no choices at all. If any of you aren’t aware of what’s going on, take a little drive down Margaret between Seventh Street and 13th Street. It’s a total wreck. But for Terre Haute, that’s their form of progress.

Pay debts before spending more
Your article “Levy Redirects School Funds” (by Sue Loughlin, Jan. 22) intrigues me.
How ironic — a government body (politicians) suggesting that schools pay debts before spending more money. What a novel idea.
All levels of government should hear about this. (I’ve lost track of how many trillions of dollars our federal government is in hock for.)
