Remembering the Great Depression

Our United States is beginning another financial crisis. I remember the financial crisis of 1929. I was born in 1916, which made me a teenager when Wall Street crashed. We heard about men jumping to their deaths from skyscrapers because they couldn't face the results of their financial ruin. No one took such a violent out in our little town of Crawford, Nebraska, but men were found standing on the street or leaning against buildings with defeated, sad faces.

Professional arrogance is not a good quality

I write this letter in response to Dr. Barstis' reference in his letter to The Signal (Oct. 13) to those of us who are requesting a smart and honest hospital expansion plan - versus the current proposed plan which is laden with questionable motives, continued dishonest representation, and little in the way of actual hospital expansion - as "quacks."

The Signal's Oct. 12 editorial gave an overview of the lack of financial/spending controls of the William S. Hart Union High School District but concluded local taxpayers should vote for another $300 million bond, Measure SA, anyway. Previous bond construction cost overruns are at least $43 million, with a recently stated figure of $80 million. That is all taxpayer money (Measure V). Hart's superintendent asserts measures exist to preclude such from reccurring, but we have no guarantees.
