Objects to location for memorial

To the editor:

I was surprised to hear that the City Council voted to have the proposed “Rock” placed out on the West Side of town. One would have thought that the City Council would have opened this up to the public for input.

Many veterans, as myself, would probably like to have a chance to comment on this matter. Some of us would rather see the “Rock” placed downtown at “Anchor Park” at 12th and Central or even at the Veterans Memorial at Kennedy Park. This memorial should be placed in a central location that is easy for people to get to and see.
