Dear Editor:

Well, we can all sleep better at night. The Historic Preservation Board is ever on guard. Historic rubble is safe. Not only is the rubble to be protected and reused, it will be properly noted with signage. Who needs amusement rides on the hill to attract visitors when they can walk around downtown noting historic rubble sites?

Community development folks, take note: Who needs downtown development? Save the rubble. And make someone else bear the cost.

While we are at it, let’s encourage the Chamber of Commerce to honor those progressive citizens who see fit to file a lawsuit to keep a large retailer out of town. Anything to help the vision of a vibrant Pagosa Springs.

Trouble is, I can’t sleep better at all. I’m laughing too hard to sleep.
