Pierce City Not Alone
Vanishing History

El Dorado Springs, MO

In Houston Missouri we have a high school building
also built in 1921 (now Middle School) being threatened with demolition unless we defeat (again!)
a school bond vote next April 7. It will fail because
of the economic times. The same St. Louis "financial
adviser" L.J. Hart has been pushing for the destruction of Pierce City's unique history as he
has here in Houston for the last year now. Why?
Corporate greed of course. He stands to make more
money floating twenty year interest loans to school
districts through new construction rather than
upgrading older historic buildings. If Pierce City
like Houston applies for federal grant money
instead, going toward new school construction,
it will have no need to increase property taxes
to pay off loan sharks like L.J.Hart.

Lets hope the good folks of Pierce City will have the good sense not to fall for this.
