Letter: Retired cops love it here, too

I am tired of some people in this great Northwest complaining about retired police officers and firemen and women retiring to this wonderful area. Come on people. We all have a right to choose where we live. As for my husband and I, we are both from this area. I was born and raised in Spokane. My husband was born and raised in Montana and the Seattle area. For a sundry of reasons we both made our careers in the L.A. area. My husband spent 30 years in law enforcement and I, 20 years. We could not wait to retire and get out of that area. We chose to come back home to this beautiful place. All others choosing to live in this beautiful location are doing so to live out their years in a safe and secure environment/Sharron Gough, of Post Falls, letter to Coeur d'Alene Press editor.
