Kudos to Ketchum mayor for leadership

    Ketchum resident John Tunney sent this letter to Ketchum Mayor Randy Hall in the wake of theBeaver Creek Fire:
    Dear Randy,
    You have gone through hell and back in the last few days. I am so sad about the terrible tragedy visited upon our beautiful community but I am very proud of the leadership that you and other city officials (including fire and police) have shown during epic events that have confronted everyone in our valley and beyond. Many are called but few are chosen. You have demonstrated that you are amongst the chosen. Kathinka and I thank you and the others who have defended our homes and lives against the ravages of fire, smoke and fear during the inferno that was visited upon us in mid-August 2013.
    Warm regards and with deep appreciation.
John Tunney
