Airport is a boon to business

Regardless of dissention over the long-established location of our airport, we are so very lucky to have it nearby. Were it to be moved far south, much of the business brought to our valley would be long gone. Just look at the past few days with the arrival of Allen and Co. Big business happens when big planes land, and we and our children are the beneficiaries.

To the protestors and those who have "Eat the Rich" bumper stickers: You might try to remember the old adage "Don't bite the hand that feeds you." Were our airport to be moved closer to Twin where fog prevails, those who bring so very much to our local economy would not hesitate to find another place to hold their meetings or conferences or ski weeks. While no one likes noise and pollution from jets coming in and out, we mustn't forget the bread and butter they provide.
