Letter: Why not add a siren on the hill?

What sort of idiots approved or will approve Steve Beckley’s three and a half miles of Christmas lights above Glenwood Springs at the Glenwood Adventure Park? Someone has forgotten the magnificence of these high-altitude skies or is willing to trade them for a few more dollars in their dank wallets?

Why would anyone want to see this lighted mess on top of the skyline coming into Glenwood any night of the year? You can bet they will run this silly expenditure of power any time it’s dark next year and all the years after and petition for longer summer hours as well. The roller coaster’s roar and the screams scare the game off the heights already — you can hear this way too well all the way up the trails. Now lights? Why not a siren?

I find what has been done above and around the splendid Fairy Cave since its opening so offensive as to stretch my imagination and mash my indignation button. Its just embarrassing. Cheap Trick is a better name for the place.

Dear Lord don’t bring it down to Iron Springs.

What’s next up there?
