A new bear suggestion

Dear Editor:Why doesn’t the city of Aspen print up some posters and signs that could be posted all over town saying: SAVE THE BEARS; then under that headline print some rules about how to do this? One rule I haven’t heard, but which I have followed to great success: Anything organic that goes into the garbage is zipped up tightly in a plastic bag so that the smell is nonexistent even to bears who have the most receptive noses in the valley.This would be simple and cheap and might save some ursine lives!!Maggie DeWolfAspen
