Save the weather beacon


KCCI (who cares about the community) and the Hearst Corporation informed those in the Des Moines viewers market that on September 27, 2012, the beloved weather beacon would go dark. In doing such, they did the city, the people of Des Moines, all Iowans and those who grew up here and are scattered across the globe a disservice by not explaining that this has been an issue for years.

Rather, we were informed the beacon would be going dark, meaning a beloved landmark and "you're home" signal would be gone. And that's just wrong.

KCCI/Hearst Television should "care about the community" enough to hear the community and our concerns about the issue. A discussion on how to raise funds to save (repair) the beacon or rebuild it should take place before the demolition of the beacon.
