You Said It, Jan. 16, 2011

I love my solar panels. Yes, you can buy energy from me now.

When walking our dog in local parks, we couldn’t believe how many dog owners don’t pick up after their dogs. You are responsible for your dog, just as we are for ours. Cold weather isn’t an excuse, either.

So there’s no law against shooting a bear in its den? It seems that unscrupulous hunter could at least be charged with home invasion.

To the elderly woman we saw at Sam’s with Obama/monkey pictures all over your back windows: Shame on you. Stop the hate.

I want to give thanks this year for our U.S. Border Patrol. They truly put their lives on the line every day. We currently deport 400,000 illegal immigrants per year. Thanks, Border Patrol.

With so many serious problems in need of a fix, Steve King’s signature contribution continues to be solutions seeking problems.

Kudos to the landowners who gave a portion of their land so we could enjoy the new trail. To you, the complainer: The cars and trucks are junk, but to the landowner they are good memories. My husband and I truly enjoy admiring the antique (junk) cars and trucks.

A big thank you to our next-door neighbor on 29 Road. Every time it snows he not only clears his sidewalk, but mine also, and all the way to the mailboxes. Thank you for your kindness.

To the person who said the American flag should not be flown at half-staff anytime except when a U.S. president dies: Show me that law someplace in flag etiquette.

To the person who wanted to get rid of all ball caps that people wear forward, backward or sideways: You must work indoors all the time because caps protect us from the sun or rain and shade our eyes while driving. I guess if you aren’t out in the elements, you don’t use one.

Am I the only one who is offended by the local business owners who build new stores and new hotels with out-of-town general contractors and use out-of-town subs? Once they open their business, they hop on the Blue Band bandwagon and ask us to support them as “local businesses.” They obviously don’t care about employing local construction workers.

I left my purse in a cart at Clifton City Market a week ago. When I got home and it wasn’t in the car; I panicked. I called the store. It had been turned in by a customer. My thanks to whoever turned it in and for the store keeping it for me. Know you made my day.
