Look at rail as an alternative

Dear Editor:

In response to Roger Marolt's column of Feb. 8:

Gee, Roger - the detour through the West End must be tough. Having to drive by the old power house should remind you of the good old days when we had our own light plant and you could still ride a train to Woody Creek. Working folks lived in Aspen then, but times have changed - Aspen has, too! Some do not support the good ideas such as light rail or hydroelectric. So being stuck on Main, or in the S-curves, is your only alternative to a train. Or as they say, "Take the bus, Gus, and leave the driving to us."
