No more bad mouthing

(Editor’s note: This letter was originally addressed to letter writer Judith King.)Dear Editor:I have really had it with your “badmouthing” the Roaring Fork Peace Coalition!The excellent letter (March 4) from the Gormans, in which you responded to an Aspen paper, should have set your mind at ease as to the mission and vision of the RFPC. To refresh your memory, you wrote: “With the cogent statement from John and Susan Gorman that ‘The RFPC accepts, unequivocally, the reality and horror of the Holocaust,’ I feel a chapter has closed on a struggle I have carried on for the past 18 months.”I am proud to be a member of the RFPC and also to serve on the RFPC steering committee. While we are getting our credentials out in the open, why not share yours with us? Are you not a member of Valley Voices for Mideast Peace, a group that has as its mission the destruction of the Roaring Fork Peace Coalition?Your letters have become predictable and repetitious; get a life!Jan GirardotGlenwood Springs

Ten years after plans for a diversion route for the Colorado River around Windy Gap Reservoir outside of Granby was finalized, the project is a go. A consortium of state and commercial water entities announced Monday that in late June or early July, construction crews will begin excavating dirt from land adjacent to U.S. Highway 40, to fill in part of the existing reservoir and dredge a new path for the Colorado River to flow around it.
