St. Joe’s demolition is encouraged

DEAR EDITOR:

This is a very difficult problem for the neighbors who live near the decaying former St. Joseph Riverside Hospital. This issue will be duplicated for other neighborhoods across America as more and more hospitals close in small cities and rural areas. Let’s hope the officials who attended the rally last weekend really think about the most vulnerable among us — the children.

Isn’t their health and safety worth more than $8 million? If America is the richest and greatest country in the world, then why can’t the feds, in conjunction with the state of Ohio, pay for the cleanup.
