Dear Editor,

Is the Village of Grantsburg in financial difficulty? Are we going broke? Did I miss something in the village minutes? Why did you find it necessary to log off timber on the nicest parcel of woods in town? Imagine my shock to be woken at 6:30 in the morning to the sound of big machinery and snapping trees.

When I bought my home over 40 years ago, I was told the property across the street had been donated to the village with the condition it never be developed. I guess they should have included “or destroyed.” It seems strange that this occurred shortly after the passing of an elder member of this donating family.

My lovely view is gone and there is nothing I can do about it, but was it really necessary?
