To the editor:
Investing in the future is what a responsible society does for its children.
As a retired person, l understand being concerned about money but I also know that if this community is to thrive we must prepare for a future we may never see.
Mankato and St. Peter are willing to keep their communities ready to meet the needs of future citizens and I would hope this community will be willing to do what it takes to do the same and make the sacrifices needed to build school facilities that will make New Ulm an attractive place for families, business and a growing economy.
To suggest that future schools should look like what we attended makes about as much sense as going back to horses as our main means of transportation and counting on our fingers to manage our economy.
