To the editor:
Kudos, appreciation and thanks to whoever is responsible for the skating path around Mirror Lake.
As I sit and look out the window from the Mirror Lake Inn, I see individuals, families and even fellows on skates propelling themselves with ski poles. Today, to top it off, I saw a mom on skates pushing a baby around the lake in a stroller with wheels. What a wonderful contribution this effort is to the overall tourist attraction and specialness, in a Currier and Ives-type of way, for our community.
I know it's weather dependent, but whatever we can do to replicate this in the future, I think it's a real true home run with bases fully loaded. I remember the days when we used to have snowmobiles out there whirling around in circles, making smog and noise. What a pleasant alternative this is that is totally in keeping with the character of our community.
Thanks again to all the responsible elected officials and hard-working employees who make this happen.
Very truly yours,
Edwin H. Weibrecht Jr.
