Letter: Fish and Wildlife Service wasting funds

To the editor:

For years the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has been killing the game fish in the Yampa River in a futile effort to recover the Squawfish.

I think their action of killing the game fish, notably Smallmouth Bass and Northern Pike, is wrong and a terrible waste of millions of tax dollars.

I have composed a letter that I intend to mail to seven of our elected officials explaining how wrong this action is and how it effects our local economy.

I will be mailing my letter to the president, both our U.S. senators, our U.S. representative, our state senator and state representative, and the governor.

This letter is too long to fit as a letter to the editor.

If you are interested in reading my letter and signing all seven copies, please contact me at my email address, als362@hotmail.com, or call me at 824-7921.

I want to get as many signatures as possible before I mail these letters so it will have the greatest effect.

I hope everyone in Moffat County will want to sign these letters.

Thank you in advance for your interest.
