How about moving away?


To The Editor:

This letter is addressed to the person who has been putting out the black and white bumper stickers on The Valley's bulletin boards. You obviously have an issue with law enforcement in our community.

If you got a ticket for driving too fast, how about driving more slowly -- that seems to work for the rest of us.

If you got in trouble for DUI, that's wonderful. We're grateful you were stopped. We've lived here 40 years and our small Valley has lost close to a dozen drivers, passengers, plus other innocent accident victims to drunk driving during that time. If you drink, don't drive. That shouldn't be too hard for even you to understand.

If you don't want to follow these few simple suggestions, how about moving away? That would be nice, too.

It's actually people like you who suck the joy out of this Valley. And we're happy to tell our select boards every opportunity we get.

Tony and Dona Egan
