Letter: Locking up Utah lands and prohibiting their responsible use does not make sense
The beauty of our state is truly a wonder and something to be protected, as Brooks Pace suggests ("Protecting Utah's Lands Saves Economy," Nov. 20). Much depends on it.
But locking up huge assets and prohibiting their responsible use does not make sense. Those evil extractions from the earth supply incomes for workers, fuel for our home fires and energy for our chariots. A little evidence of their extraction is a small price to pay.
Let's be realistic about this blind and sometimes foolish business of tourism uber alles.
