Bob Portnoy: Leave you opinions in Nebraska

Re: “Pot not good for Breckenridge” (Letters, Mark Schorr, Aug. 20): Please concern yourself with YOUR town, not OURS. You, and other second (or third) home-owners brag about how much money you spend here, and your beautiful homes and condos, and think by visiting here once or twice a year you can tell us what is for good for us and the children of our community. Gee, I guess it’s OK that your perfect kids are exposed to Breck’s 40 or so bars along Main St. while sick people amongst us suffer or get addicted to prescription drugs to ease their pain. Why does the Summit Daily News insist on print complaints and fluff from well-heeled visitors who think they know better than us locals because they own a house, time-share or condo in “Colorado’s Playground.” It’s THEIR playground, but OUR community, and it is WE (the voters and tax-payers of Summit County) who will decide, thank you very much.
