Letter: Where the antelope roam


I found City Manager Larry Tarkowski and Universal Homes President Joe Contadino’s remarks about the antelope herd leaving Prescott Valley disconcerting.

They act like it’s no big deal, no great loss. Well, I remember a time when the town logo had hot air balloons and antelopes in front of a mountain range. Someone chose those to symbolize Prescott Valley.

The antelope have been a part of the history and heritage of PV for decades. The folks who came to look at lots back in the ’70s were enthralled at the antelope grazing on the open prairie.

Driving down Glassford Hill Road last week, I saw several antelopes investigating the grading going on south of 89A across from Granville. Their habitat had been bladed over, soon they will move on and be forgotten just like that old town logo.

In their place will be the cookie cutter houses built on top of each other. Another icon of the West chased away.
