To the Editor,

As the saying goes, Italian hotels are profitable only after the third bankruptcy. Let’s hope that the Hermitage Club/Haystack make it after the second first, as the club and mountain provide jobs and represent a major source of value for members/homeowners, from which we all benefit through an enhanced tax base and maintaining critical mass for our towns.

I urge the towns of Wilmington and Dover, the bank, and the relevant economic development agencies to make every effort to facilitate the rebirth and continuation of the club/mountain. At the same time, I urge them to seek to disperse the remaining properties among many individual owners and small businesses, as we do not need another overextended octopus that can bring us all down.
