Letter: Please save the Anderson Wigwam

I have been dealt a very heavy blow. I am a former student of Anderson High School Class of 1995, and, as you are aware, in 1999 I was one of the few remaining students standing on the sidewalk watching as my beloved high school burned to the ground, many memories going up in smoke.

As I do every day I pick up our local newspaper to read top headlines. Anderson Wigwam — should it stay or should it go? Hasn’t the school board done enough? I am very disappointed. Sure, there is a new Anderson High School, but for us true Indians that is not our school. I feel saddened for the Madison Heights Pirates, as well.

I am very disappointed in the school board and some of the decisions they have made. I recently read where there is a new alternative school coming to Anderson, hello empty building. I think this would be an ideal place for them. I also believe the community service they have to perform would be ideal project to spruce up the Wigwam and the area. I am really saddened by the fact that they are proposing this idea to tear down the Wigwam. They already took our school from us, and not to mention the memories.

  • Letter: City beautification ignores other areas I read in the paper where they are going to start work on their great roundabout. What a waste, they are spending millions on the south side for the great gateway to Anderson and all the while the rest of Anderson is ignored.

  • Letter: Poll shows priorities are backward Your recent polling question about schools providing free food for children tells us society has its priorities backwards. The conservatives want low taxes. 53 percent said no to feeding the kids.

  • Letter: President's trade being swept under rug My question to all, why do we keep hearing after a number of months about the shootings in Colorado, Sandy Hook, etc., but yet the president illegally deals with terrorists, trades five for a believed deserter and now it is being swept under the rug?

  • Letter: New glass ceiling is $12 an hour All those libertarians, tea party, conservatives (dupes of the rich) are leading America's middle class and poor into poverty and depression.

  • Letter: Constitution, laws being trampled Nancy Pelosi said, "When it comes to protecting the children I'm a lioness!" Too bad that doesn't include the babies who are ripped from the womb. How ironic to hear the progressive liberals talk of compassion for illegals while killing our own.
