Letter to the editor: Escalade project is ill advised
I am going to be very direct and candid in this letter. First of all, I am very upset with the leadership of the Bodaway Gap Chapter and proceedings of the special meeting held on Oct. 3, 2012, regarding the Escalade Project at the Sacred Site known as the Confluence in the Grand Canyon on the Navajo Nation reservation lands.

Letters to the editor: Developers don't respect the holy and sacred
As a voting member, I attended the Gap Bodaway planning meeting last month and asked that our next regular meeting be a discussion about the Escalade Project - a fact-finding information sharing session and have those responsible for the project come to the meeting and report out to the people.
