Something’s not right
I hope Barry Crook is incorrect in his reply (“Affordable housing letter off base,” letters, April 25, 2011, The Aspen Times) to a recent letter from Jerry Bovino (“Titanic problems on City Council,” letters, April 21, 2011, The Aspen Times).
Mr. Crook says that foreclosure on a deed restricted property under APCHA “necessitates” their purchase by the city and/or APCHA. If that’s right, then residents of Aspen and Pitkin County are effectively underwriting the credit risk of every owner of an APCHA property. Could our city attorney or other competent legal official assure us that Mr. Crook is not right? Otherwise, the city and county taxpayers are potentially on the hook for who knows how much money.
Or am I missing something here? I recognize that some people are not legally precise in their language and I hope that is the case here.
Of the 10 players listed on the varsity roster ahead of Tuesday’s home game with Summit, two were juniors, seven were sophomores and one was a freshman. It’s a far cry from the class of 10 seniors who last season led the Skiers to a perfect 27-0 mark and the Class 3A state championship.
