Shame, shame

Dear Editor:I am appalled to continue to read in the local newspapers that residents of the Willits community complained about the response time of our Basalt & Rural Fire Protection District.I cannot believe that you would have the gall to even complain that it took our “volunteer” firefighters 13 minutes to respond to the fire, save all the houses around the “arson”-started fire, and make sure that all citizens were safe. Do you really feel that you contribute enough to the lives around you that you have the ability to complain about those that give so much?These men and women give unselfishly to make sure that your community and lives are safe. Please think twice before opening your mouth and complaining of something that you don’t do!Temple GlassierBasalt
