Corridor should be called Mid-States Destroyer

To the editor,

Mid-States Corridor.

No. In my estimation it should read Mid-States Destroyer.

Mr. Menke, you claim that this road will bring a lot of new business to Dubois County. I’m sorry, but I, and many others think you are wrong. Have you ever given a thought to how many business you will destroy by building this road? To you a farm is not a business. But ask the people who operate and make a living on the farms you want to destroy. They will tell you that you are going to take away their only source of income. A farmer can’t just go out and buy a farm and start over again.

How about all of the people who are going to lose their homes and property to this road? What do you say to them and me? How would you feel if this road came through your Cool Springs property? What would you do? How would you feel?

I welcome you and anyone from Dubois Strong who supports this road to come to my home and explain to me why I should give up my home and property so you can make more money. I will bet none of you will have the courage to to talk to me.

Come to the rally at the Dubois County Court House on September 26th at 10:00 am. And explain to us why we should give up our property for this road. I would be willing to bet you will not show up.
