Cutting courthouse trees was a disgrace

Written by 

To the Editor:

I have returned to Waynesville for the summer. I drove past the courthouse and could not believe the destruction of those magnificent trees! Shame on the person or persons who ordered this, and shame, shame on the citizens of this community that allowed this to happen. 

If they were diseased, treat them; if they were disrupting water, electricity or sewer lines, move the lines.

You have destroyed a treasure, and I wonder what will be next? Wake up.

Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
