Open minds needed

Dear Editor:True Value has special repair parts for older homes that you will not find in Lowe’s. Lowe’s is a replacement store.Shopping at True Value, you will find specific help, as well as a smaller convenience that you will not have at Lowe’s. At Lowe’s you will be immersed in a sea of nonspecific shoppers, with very little floor help.At True Value, the money stays in Glenwood Springs. It is a Colorado-owned store. Lowe’s is a corporate store. The money goes directly to other states.The school district could pay Terry Fattor, the owner of the Gymnastics Academy building, to relocate that business. The school district could use that land, plus the Bray building, for its six acres.The population of Glenwood Springs High School is actually dropping. The growth is outside Glenwood Springs. It is a wasteful tear-down. Remodel! And build up, school board!Take our money, but address these current issues with an open mind. Be constructive, not destructive.Greg ChandlerCarbondale
