    Well, that last cel may be a slight exaggeration, but you can see that situation from here.

    “Save this town” … yep … reminds me of the quote about the bombing of Ben Tre during the Vietnam War: “it became necessary to destroy the town in order to save it.”

    ffitting that the white people problems are more important to the writer than the native american problems. settlers can’t have it both ways.

    “Tecumsah” —I can only depict the events of Moab’s history as they actually happened; its history is no different than most other communities on the North American continent. And this series has just started…there’s more to come..JS

    In 89, I could’ve bought 3 houses or more for cash… didn’t think it would pan out investment wise. Boy was I wrong. I wanted Moab to stay the same…. although a liquor store would’ve been good.

    Every time I see that Mountain Biker with the “Boulder” t-shirt, I cringe and wish they had never invented the damn things… I’ve lived in Boulder for 37 years and my visits to the Moab area pre-date the mountain biking boom, but I know I was just the advance squadron of the Colorado invasion. I recall the mountain-bike boom hitting Boulder in the mid-80s along with the whole “extreme sports” and “he who dies with the most toys wins” enthusiasms which rendered my old-fashioned tree-hugging smell-the-flowers style of outdoor education and environmentalism an anachronism. Now! We have the advent of “fat bikes”. At least they don’t tear up ski trails the way snow-shoes do…
