First, the goblin topplers got off way too easy ("Utah 'goblin topplers' sentenced to probation," Tribune, March 18). They need to split court costs and legal fees and pay a fine of at least $10,000 each, which isn't nearly enough.

Second, they need to spend the entire coming year visiting every Boy Scout troop in Utah and giving the boys a lesson on how important our environment and our public lands are/should be to Americans/Utahns.

Third, then they should teach those Boy Scouts how to behave in a national/state park. I know it was leaders who toppled the goblins, not the boys, but I also know that boys grow up to be leaders.

Fourth, they probably should pay for a few signs, but placing them throughout an area only means I have to look at an incredible rock formation with the sign in front of it. What kind of a photo is that? Can we put a sign in front of stupid instead?
