Letter: Goodbye pronghorns
This letter is in response to the July 26 article on the Granville development expansion on Glassford Hill Road. I suppose this is progress and it is inevitable, but I find it sad that the pronghorns are once again displaced.
Yes, they will move and luckily, still have land to do so. The mention of the displacement of the pronghorns in the article from the new construction area almost has the feeling of an aside, a footnote, a minor detail to the glorious progress that is being undertaken.
Yes, it does provide jobs and more housing and contributes to the growth of Prescott Valley, bringing in more tax dollars.
My point and what I will miss is driving by Glassford Hill, no matter it being a good or bad day, but glancing at the bucolic, restful and joyful scene of these beautiful animals grazing, resting, or wandering.
Or seeing these amazing animals looking at “us” with as much wonder as we looked at them. I will miss that. Driving by, I was never sure if they would be out there, but oh! the happiness and joy one would feel when they were there. No more.
