Letter to the editor – February 12, 2022

Dear editor,

The Iola City Council will soon vote on the future of the old Arkhaven Nursing Home. Like many times in the past, the decision is not an easy one. Anytime your friends, family, and neighbors are passionately opposed to something, it is natural to be inclined to join them.  

This would be a permanent change but still a change that comes with many unknowns. As humans, we are wired to fear change, especially when that change is close to home. Although the anxiety in this decision is normal, I want to urge the council to try to make this decision with a clear head, removing the emotion from the situation.
