American Indian Center

They let people in slowly one at a time. When the line in front of the ramp got smaller, one of the cops (there were ten of them) told me to go stand in that line. Eventually I got inside the building and was handed a ticket with the number 130 on it. Damn, I thought. 110 people got in front of me.
Once we were inside with our numbers, sitting on chairs in an auditorium waiting to get called to one of the tables to fill out the applications, things went smoothly. The staff was courteous and professional.
If I hadn’t have been there, I never would have found out what happened unless it was in the paper. Naturally there was no media there. I think a lot of people would be interested to see the lengths people to which people will go to get a chance at affordable housing in Drury County.
