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.

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

Jean King
