Wearing his heart on much more than his sleeve, Hall County Supervisor Gary Quandt wore unusual attire to this board meeting.
The shirt was designed by Veterans Home Member John Huebner and paid for with donations.
Quandt says if the veterans don't want to move, he'll continue to wear the shirt to meetings.
He said, "I've always had the philosophy that I wore a suit and tie to board meetings and for the next two or three months, while we're working on this project, I decided to wear his T-shirt to county board and help Mr. Huebner get his point across."
They took more than symbolic action, voting to contribute towards a potential legal fight.
Quandt said, "We voted to go up to $10,000 to put into what we call a war chest to promote the fight to keep the Grand Island Veterans Home in Grand Island."
The Grand Island City Council will also vote on contributing $10,000 to the legal fight, while the Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Corporation will each give $5,000 for a total of $30,000.
It doesn't mean they plan to sue, but they do want help from a law firm in Kansas City.
They're looking for an outside opinion to tell them what options they may have, to go against the governor's decision to build the new veterans home in Kearney.
And they continue to hear comments from folks in Kearney urging them to bow out gracefully.
At least one Hall County board member expressed concerns. Steve Schuppan worries the legal bills could add up and he's not sure what they'll have to show for it.
