Letter to the Editor

Thanks for support

Thursday, July 14, 2005

Dear Editor,

As a resident of Kearney, I thank the Gazette for its support of the second I-80 interchange at Kearney.

The exit will allow more people to view the archway, which embodies late Gov. Frank Morrison's visions of Nebraska's role in our nation's westward expansion.

As a fellow journalist, I applaud the Gazette's alertness and accuracy in portraying Kearney's desires for another I-80 exit.

As your opinion stated, the bypass that will accompany the proposed exit will carry some traffic around Kearney, unclogging Kearney's main street and easing the way for emergency vehicles.

The bypass also will create a corridor for new development and funnel traffic to another top Nebraska attraction, Cabela's Sporting Goods on Kearney's east side.

Mike Konz,
