Voice: Winter visitors editorial welcome but long overdue

December 04, 2001

Your editorial of Nov. 26 on winter visitors rang my bell! It should have occurred 10 years ago. For 18 years we have operated and run a park for winter visitors in Winterhaven.

Your comments are overdue! There is much that can be done. Unity is needed. It is not an El Centro versus Yuma thing. Maybe a Southwest desert versus the Rio Grande is a consideration.

There are 800,000 visitors east of Blythe who would go to El Centro/Yuma if these areas are promoted.

The showcase story buried on B6-B7 the same day is the way to realize the objective of your editorial. Put the showcase into the front section — assign two writers and tell them to do six stories each from now until Jan. 17! Its good for the whole Valley!
