Where are the fur numbers?

Dear Editor:As an Aspen business owner, I worry about the accurate conveying of news and proper reporting of the facts. Specifically, I refer to Janet Urquhart’s negative and clearly biased views, opinions and deliberate omissions. The monthly sales tax numbers always exclude both the fur category and any positive news about sales increases in this category. She seems to only report her opinions and leaves out the hard facts. In the future, I would like to have the reporting of all the sales numbers in all the categories released by the city of Aspen, and not just those she would feel pertinent to report. Accuracy in the numbers and not her bias should be the paper’s ultimate goal.Mickey AlperAlper Furs & Leathers
