Mail: Pawnee Hotel keeps timeless hope for residentsTell North Platte what you think
 

Living in the Pawnee Hotel is a pastime that affects one's sense of time. The age of the hotel, since it was built in 1929, puts the place in the category of an historical place, almost even a relic.

Within the place is a library of films on VHS and noteworthy stars are John Wayne, Lucille Ball and Woody Allen.

The time spent inside the hotel is productive. There are many persons here to visit with and there is also a large television in the lobby.

It seems unreal that such a quality place run by such good people might be in jeopardy. The behavior health that transpires here has to do with keeping one's mind aware of public interests and your own quality of life.

The people who are here are sometimes having crises or need structure.

Before, I have had the experience of reacting against having a guardianship placed over me and fled the state and even left the country.

I have been homeless and sometimes walked off to places having no destination in mind.

Yet, the care here at Pawnee Assisted Living is important and the reason I am angry is due to the fact that our country is focusing on any problems other than health. We as a nation are giving credence to new changes, yet at the hotel Pawnee we are being targeted, when in reality this hotel is an excellent establishment and important to our lives.

Our Christmas here was wonderful as it was all there was for the season and family, and we even received gifts.

The heating situation here is being fixed and we are satisfied with the arrangements. It seems even nostalgic watching Cat Ballo starring Jane Fonda, that Sandy Schade might escape the stronghold again and maintain our hotel and way of life.

I hope that the crises is resolved soon and very much want to stay in North Platte as I have been through court and guardianships and attorneys to remain at the Pawnee Assisted Living residence. It is nice to have as much independence and freedom as we do to work with the staff here.

I ask that the old building and the occupants stay safe. I ask for the favor from the state due to an acute need for mental health reasons and I ask for the support from the community.



- Stephanie Sitz, Pawnee Hotel resident
