Editor, Index-Tribune:

I’ve wanted to address this issue for the last three years and finally have the opportunity to do so. I completely agree with Roger Hartley, who wrote the Op-Ed article that appeared in the Sonoma Index-Tribune on Jan. 7 (“Our air does not need to be spared”).

Those many, and I mean many unnecessary “spare the air days” announced during the holiday months of November and December – every year – are simply criminal.

Again, I concur and thank Roger Hartley for bringing the matter of “spare the air” to the attention of our general public.
