Letters to the Editor

Stop fighting a good project

Editor: I have recently read several letters from the local NIMBYS, all against the Coulter Berry project.  Now it’s my turn.

I, for one, totally support it. It was tastefully designed, and would do nothing but enhance the area. Unfortunately, the NIMBYS won a halt, due to a grossly-misinformed, in my opinion, judge. Hopefully, an appeal will be won, and sanity will prevail.

I have some advice for all you NIMBYS out there. Get a life and find something meaningful to do. There are dozens of volunteer organizations that need help — find one and channel your energy positively. Stop fighting what is so obviously a good thing.
