Reader suggests new hospital could save Sylvan Springs Park

To the editor:

I have a suggestion for the Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery issue. I would like to preserve Sylvan Springs Park in its entirety.

When this kind of thing starts, where does it stop?

Instead, I suggest we build these heroes a new hospital somewhere south. Then take the existing land and incorporate it into the cemetery. It is already hallowed and historic ground, and would be the best decision, I believe.
