Second-home owners

 

Thank you for the excellent January 2021 issue. Every article was pertinent to one or another of the pressing problems here in the West. I especially liked the article and photos by Nick Bowlin and Luna Anna Archey in your feature story, “Second Citizens.” It’s very evident that we need to find a way to bring longtime residents of rural communities together with the newer, wealthier residents or part-time residents. It is not a good thing to see those newcomers using their wealth to impose their agendas on the longtime small business people, the hard-working service workers and the ranchers who have made long-term commitments to the community. We see too much of this all over this country, but it comes out in vivid relief in these small towns.
