Shut up and pay the fee

In reference to the letter “Parking fee may backfire,” (Reader Input, July 18), I find it amazing that raising the fee (aka tax) on parking is met with resistance by those that use the American River. The state is broke, they need the money. Everyone knows you must raise fees and taxes to increase the revenue to pay for all the essential state programs. Those that use the river should shut up and pay their fair share. Quit acting like it’s their right to get access to the river for free. John T. Nightingale, Auburn
