Nursing home needed more than highway


We the people of Gouverneur and St. Lawrence County would like to trade the $2.5 million survey that has been approved for the new Rooftop Highway to save the Kinney Nursing Home.

Seems that our government wants to put the people that built Northern New York out on the streets because they cannot take care of themselves. Jobs lost by closing the Kinney Nursing Home seems to be of little importance.

Should be lots of work for these people in China. We do not need a superhighway that’s going to ruin our beautiful land or hurt small businesses.

Already, E.J. Noble’s name has been taken from the hospital he built. Looks like the name and purpose of B.O. Kinney’s city will soon be lost. Does God want us to build another superhighway or to love and care for our elders?
