Don’t judge a mom
by her tattooed cover
I’d like to thank my neighbors for not being like the judgmental person who wrote into the “You Said It” column.
I am female, tattooed and pierced. I have three children, all gifted and talented. One son graduated as a junior.
The next is both intelligent and gifted in his sports abilities. My youngest has four years of perfect attendance at age 8.
I have a nice home that I keep up because I appreciate home ownership. Nobody gave me handouts to get what
I have. I worked hard for what I have.
So judge me by looks? I raise my children to be accepting of others; always respect your elders because they
do know more; respect others’ property and always be polite. It really isn’t that hard to raise good children if you pay attention, and it has nothing to do with tattoos.
Wednesday’s news reveals
the Grand Junction good life
Regarding Wednesday’s edition of The Daily Sentinel:
“Dog in a tree;” chickens in the city; coyotes eating the deer; a vote to ban marijuana shops; traffic flow requires driver attention
Afghanistan did not show up until page 11A.
Then there was a personal trip from First Street and North Avenue to the North Avenue Wal-Mart without a stop and, amazingly, the return trip without a stop; (at the speed limit, of course).
Is this a great place to live, or what?

Holder deserves scrutiny
over ‘Fast and Furious’
The Daily Sentinel’s editorial of June 22 was almost correct regarding the upcoming departure of Kenneth Melson as acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
The acting director’s actions in not only allowing, but promoting “Operation Fast and Furious” were taken, I am sure, with the full knowledge and approval of Attorney General Eric Holder. To date, no one has exposed or questioned the attorney general about this operation.
I believe that this plan was part a long-term goal by Holder to implement more and more firearm regulation to
the point of putting legitimate dealers out of business.
