I agree with Ceci Capen’s April 17 letter. Why destroy the shelter? Guess none of our new-age Forest Service people have ever been cold, lost or just needed a dry resting place.

I’ve been roaming around the woods for a quarter century and have found a cabin or shelter to be a warm welcome place. Always with an old coffee pot and some coffee, dry wood and an old magazine to read while sitting out a storm.

I seem to remember just in the recent past when our Forest Service folks have neglected to do what we pay them to do and have let our forest burn because they don’t go in to work till 9 a.m.

Time could be better spent! Is there no common sense left in this country?
