A national treasure
Article published on

Editor:
I was born and raised in Clearwater, and there’s not much of anything here anymore that even resembles the Clearwater I used to know, much less anything that mirrors such majesty or true craftsmanship as the Biltmore. Why? Well the dollar has become more important it seems than any history, heritage or culture that we have a link to.

I myself don’t call this success at all, and I don’t feel in my heart that these “moguls” are successes at all. To destroy the very heritage, memories and ties that individuals have in life is truly not success at all, but the individuals that see the Biltmore Hotel as majestic, with a sense of awe, passion and inspiration are the successful ones because they can appreciate something majestic that can’t ever, ever be replaced or duplicated. Isn’t the Biltmore on the National Registry of Historic Places? How can they destroy a national treasure?

Too bad money is all some people see and think it is success. Where will they spend their “successful” spoils in time if all the treasures are gone?

Maybe one day instead of people going to Italy on vacation to see the wonders of art and history they can see a strip mall or maybe a condo where the Sistine Chapel once stood.
