Re: "New foundation wants to take over the Spiral Jetty" (Tribune, July 9):
Who should have a lease for the Spiral Jetty? It's a world-famous work of art, and it should be protected in perpetuity with sufficient acreage so that no development can infringe on its austere beauty.
Since it's on state land, I'd say make it a Utah state park, but considering that other state parks are currently being closed by a Legislature that sees them as a luxury, that's not such a good idea. So why doesn't the state sign over the land to the federal government and have President Obama declare it a national monument?
