Put a price tag on the Wakefield Spring (Letters, Jan. 15)? What a terrible thought. To silence the welcoming, sweet, splashing spring with a sign which does not read “Welcome to Wakefield” is, to put it gently, misguided. Why is it that as soon as there is a good thing going (remember the long line up when our spring was threatened?) someone sees a dollar sign? If taxes have to be raised to keep the spring flowing, they should be.
If you have the urge to donate money to charity, there are many worthwhile projects in Wakefield that could use help directly.
