LETTER: First the Duck, then the pond

The Editor,

Re. “Heritage supporters plan to rally again to save Duck” (The Tri-City News, Nov. 4).

We in the Tri-Cities are inexorably losing our architectural heritage. Chimo pool and the Wild Duck Inn will be the next to go. Soon, they will only exist in our memory banks.

In one, we build up and strengthen our bodies while in the other, we studied anatomy. Isn’t history grand?
