Comments: This is a no-brainer. There are children needing education in a city that is more than ever depent on educated leaders for their future. An old leaky church will not benefit the rebuilding of our city, which is what the focus must be on now. Other "historical" sites have been lost during our recent devastation and while we mourn them all, holding up progress for a crippled one, is ridiculous. It is also rediculous to expect that they "build around it". This is the time for a new start. We thank the "grandparents" that helped maintain these fine landmarks in their hayday, but it is time to move forward. And if these "grandparents" were here today and were as involved in the whole community as their families say, then I am confident that they would be right alongside rebuilding this area.
