Frying Pan not for exclusive use

Bruce Gabow, your letter railing me is as dumb as the idea that we should curtail using our natural resources just because you have yours now (“Get over the good old days,” March 10, 2017, The Aspen Times).

Get over your “I am here now so it has to be the way I want it.”

The point is, the valley is for all uses, not just yours. There are many home sites left in the Frying Pan River corridor and the cement, lumber, furniture, dirt, tree hauling, yard maintenance and swimming pool cleaning trucks will continue in the years ahead. I suggest you get a rear view mirror for you bicycle or donate enough money to improve the road.
