Great to see the accolades for John and Karen Dye ("At the top of their game, July 4). Thousands of walkers in Howard County owe their healthful pleasure to these two. For more than a decade, they have made sure that excellent routes were available for resident and visitor alike and many came from the surrounding states to partake in the trails they've designed. Thanks, John and Karen. Without you we would have had many empty weekends.
