Forest Gold



Thank you for the excellent article regarding the proposed "destruction" of the delicate ecosystem and forest preserve in the name of Olympic legacy ["They Say Nay" by Ben Joravsky, July 6]. It is sad to see how they are blatantly ignoring the International Olympic Committee's "Green Policies" by destroying Lakewood or any forest preserve.

Readers, if you care about the preservation of forest preserves, and care about our government using tax money to "preserve," kindly visit and sign our petition at
