Chocolate DropPublished 6:12pm Wednesday, February 13, 2013
To the editor:
Leah Justice’s article “Chocolate Drop discussion stirs debate” of Feb. 12, 2013 is a good example of her consistently professional and objective coverage of issues important to Polk County.
Although I have been away from Polk County for the last ten weeks and not been in a position to attend meetings of the commissioners or the planning board, I have followed coverage of Polk County’s issues through the Tryon Daily Bulletin’s on-line service, and have been grateful for Justice’s reportage.
Mitch Stott’s version of the history of the Chocolate Drop disaster is familiar to me, as he expressed the same statements to me or my husband Eric when either of us had conversations with Mr. Stott as we stood at the foot of Chocolate Drop Mountain during LGI’s on-going development activities that destroyed the mountain.
