Three cheers for this conservation

Dear Editor:Tears of happiness came to my eyes while reading about a potential conservation easement on the Grange property on Basalt’s western edge (“Score One for the Cows,” Oct. 6). After all the heartache Mr. Grange must have felt when the Highway 82 bypass bifurcated his working ranch property, he is still willing to work with public entities in the name of conservation.Thank you, Mr. Grange, for considering this gift of a rural buffer to all who enjoy the Roaring Fork Valley. I must also thank Mr. Dale Will, director of Pitkin County Open Space and Trails: Your vision, persistence and patience have created a legacy of open space preservation in our Valley. Thanks to all others involved for your time and effort in working to make this vision a reality.Betsy SuerthGlenwood Springs
