Do not destroy God's magnificent creation
Williams-Grand Canyon News

To the editor:

There is nothing to describe the feeling I had when reading the recent article in your paper about an Escalade to be built in the Grand Canyon. I was appalled and very angry.

It seems to me there are those out there out to destroy "God's" handiwork, the beautiful Grand Canyon in the name of greed. We don't need developers building Escalades in the Grand Canyon destroying one of God's magnificent gifts to generations past, present and future.

The people that support this wild scheme have never lived there watching the ever changing beauty of clouds, colors, storms, lightning, snow and fog. I have. I was born on the South Rim in 1922, spent the first 23 years of my life there and have been back often over the years. It is home and always will be. To quote Teddy Roosevelt, "Leave it as it is."

I think intelligent folks can separate the differences between how Native American lands are run and how bloodthirsty and corrupt Italian led development groups run their lands. The funny part is the people of Tusayan bought into the corruption and sold their collective souls to the devil. Good luck!

The Natives dont control the South Rim, the big chip on their shoulders, heavy handed ticket writing jerks control the south rim.

The only people to blame for this are Native Americans....look what they did to the West Rim - and now a different tribe is going to trash East of the park....its lucky that they don't have control of the Park area
