To the editor:

My hand felt heavy. I knew what I had to do, but I was having trouble making my pen actually write the word “no.” I think that’s how most of us felt Monday night (June 15) as we were forced to decide the fate of the 2020 Days of 1910 celebration.

We discussed it for quite a while, and weighed our options, but the writing was on the wall. Many of us expressed how much we would like to do it, and how ready our community is to all come together again. But we just couldn’t really see how it would work out. We were told that we could have our liquor license, but we could only sell alcohol from 11:00- 3:00. The tribe never said that we couldn’t have it. I’m sure they didn’t want to make that decision either. But they are trying to keep people safe with all these regulations, and they are not even letting people come back for funerals and turning people away who come to put flowers on their loved ones graves. So what are they supposed to say? They can’t really say, “Sure! Have a big party with lots of people in Timber Lake!”
