Street woes...

We just bought a home in Moab. We love this area, and we moved in on Jan. 5.

The street we live on is Rio Grande and it is connected to Coronado through work done by a wonderful man, on his own, no money or profit.

He has taken down all of the limbs that could cause trouble and burned or stacked the wood. He also picked up the stones and stacked them alongside the road.

I would like to know why the San Juan County grader came down and plowed this beautiful road back into a big mess. This man only did this because he wanted our roads neat and clean.

Someone needs to help our street, and this man had done this by himself.
