Concerts should return to aprivate, local organization

Dear Editor,

As I drove by Ashley Pond on Friday night, May 31, my thoughts mirrored your comments when I saw the traffic and crowds and crowds of people, all standing at what used to be called  “Gordon’s Concert.”  

I have seen lots of changes in Los Alamos since moving here in 1967 and when Russ Gordon started his concerts, first inside his store and then expanding into the parking lot, it was a wonderful gift to this community.  As you noted, people of all ages gathered, brought lawn chairs and watched the kids dance to the music.  It was a fun evening for all. That Friday night concert on May 31 had a totally different feel to it.

I agree with you that the county should work with local and longtime business owners and return the event to a private, local organization. Another venue, perhaps Overlook Park as you suggest, would be more suitable for big, loud concerts. Thank you for sharing your views.

Dear Editor,

This is a response to Mr. T. Douglas Reilly’s recent editorial, when he reminded us of the USSR’s sacrifices during WWII.
