Send who to jail?

Lindsey Estreich

In response to the letter “Send the teens to jail,” by Barbara Flitcraft in the June 19 edition; How dare you? As a young adult, 20 years to be exact, I found your letter revolting. I’ve lived in Summit County my entire life and know how special and beautiful it is. I know many of the young people that were there at the bonfire and yes, it was not the smartest thing for them to do.

Now, let me tell you a story about “beer-guzzling, bonfire-happy” old adults. I was camping a couple of weeks ago, sitting around a lantern when a few camp sites down “old adults” had a huge bonfire. If you feel that the “young adults” should go down and help the Hayman fire, grab your fire gear and go help, because I believe that an “old adult” started that one.

“Young adults” are not stupid, and the ones involved know the consequences of their actions and they will be punished. I would really like to know how responsible you were at that age? So, residents of Summit County, keep your eyes open and your fingers crossed that we will survive the summer of 2002, from both young and old adults.

Also, kudos to Katie de Decker of Frisco for her letter in support of young people.
