Lone Tree, CO
I\'m a 13 year resident of Lone Tree. The information you provided regarding our city is very inaccurate. First of all, Lone Tree is not in the mountains even though our elevation is around 6,000 ft. We are southeast of Denver, not southwest. We have had a hospital (Skyridge) since 2003 and it is a level 2 trauma hospital. I would also seriously question the crime rate. I doubt it is above the national average as we have had very few incidents of crime since I\'ve lived here. Your report makes me question the accuracy of your description of other cities.
