October 2017: Letters to Editor

Love letter Dear Crestone Community, I am so sorry that I left Crestone for  Arizona without saying good bye.  I would have cried. Crestone will always be my “home town.”  I am missing all the hugs at the PO and grocery stores and restaurants. And the special and interesting people. Thank you all for the […]

A visit to Crestone Dear Editor: In July I traveled from Indiana to Colorado.  Crestone was one of my stops.  I had heard about this wonderful community of people, the open air pyre and wanted to see for myself what was going on here. Crestone and its spiritual communities, the art gallery and Saturday market, […]

Good job Dear Editor, I was happy to read Vince Palermo’s letter to the editor in the February issue of the Eagle “In praise of POA maintenance crew.”  He stated that the crew “makes our lives more manageable and safer.”  I couldn’t agree with Vince more.

The life of our library Dear Editor, If you can pause momentarily and imagine going back a few years to ask yourself “what would my life have been like as a child, or a teenager, and now an adult without the consistent comfort, educational enhancement, flirtations in the stacks, or joy of finding the one […]

Please vote Dear Editor, I have to say that as a self-employed independent businessperson, I really like most of the conservative rhetoric: smaller government, fewer regulation, and lower taxes. What’s not to like? But, I also want good roads and schools, clean air and water, and equal rights for everyone. Let’s face it—most private businesses […]

Gratitude to “Co-Inspirators” Dear Editor, Reflecting on the past as I approach my 73rd birthday, I find that I have been remiss in failing to acknowledge publicly three Crestone/Baca women who provided some of the foundational inspiration for the Crestone End of Life Project. Carol D’Antoni brought the “Being With Dying” teachings of Roshi Joan Halifax/Upaya […]
