I read the story (Courier-Herald, July 7) about Dr. Tait and his legacy, which is the Foothills Trail. I think it is admirable that the group wants to honor him; the trail is a fantastic way to get exercise and spend some time in nature.
I do not think that Dr. Tait would care for a memorial while the trail remains incomplete. He devoted his time and money for his vision of what could be done. It is my opinion that Dr. Tait would prefer funds be spent on completion of the trail. How about the “Dr. Tait Memorial Bridge” that would span the White River?
A simple plaque with the history of the trail’s formation and Dr. Tait’s input would be more in line with what he would want.
