Dear editor, Re: Feb. 3 letter, Former seed house property is a disgrace. My reply is: poor old chap! Chris Walker, Georgetown *** Dear editor, Kudos to John Tatham (Letters to the Editor... February 3)! My sentiments exactly. Here was a golden opportunity to set Georgetown apart from other towns. We had a chance to have our very own "Central Park" green space right in the middle of town! We could even have managed to blend in the housing and the school. But no, more hodge-podge development with likely another half dozen traffic lights needed to handle it. And we all know how well traffic lights work together. So much for helping the Kyoto Accord and preserving green space. Of course, we could have objected at the public hearing (if there really was one), but we would likely have been labeled "tree huggers" or worse. Still, think of all that additional tax revenue and how it will help with our property taxes. Well it's done now. Nigel Cocks, Terra Cotta
