Letter to the Editor:

I grew up in Tama, graduated from Tama High School and have very fond memories of my home town.

The Lincoln Highway runs through Tama. What better way to honor Tama, Toledo and the Lincoln Hwy than to keep and preserve the Lincoln Hwy Bridge and beautiful park.

My sister Sharlene Hanus McCord, who lives in California, taught kindergarten for 50 years. We would like to have an old one-room country school house from rural Iowa moved to and preserved on the bridge park property. My sister has saved items to fill the school house. Our family attended these rural schools before we moved to town.

We need to preserve our historical heritage for future generations to enjoy instead of tearing everything down.

Save the Bridge!
