Let me take Mr. Bagwell first. Do you approve of bars and liquor stores? Do you ever take a drink yourself? Everything you have stated in your letter also could apply to ALL forms of alcohol. So, are we going to put an end to selling that to save the costs of what it does to our children and the burdens on the community? I think they tried it once and found it just didn’t work. In fact, it increased crime when mobs took over and it made criminals out of people who might just enjoy a social drink, but maybe we could do better the second time around, of course we would have to raise taxes A LOT to make up for lose of revenue and to fight the War on Booze along with the War on Drugs and it would give the cartels one more thing to peddle. Mexico needs the business, their economy is so poor.

I am sure Merlin Schreiner has had dealings with our “City Fathers”, or the Mesa County before and was not so surprised by events surrounding the Avalon Theater. I applaud him for making this story public. Let’s shine some light on what our politicians are doing and whose back is being scratched. He asks questions that we need answers to even if it takes an investigation to get to the bottom of it.

On the surface it looks like Asset Engineering and the taxpayers have been screwed again. As my father always said “follow the money”. Is there a little cronism going on like it appears there is at the airport?  There were question about the last work done at the Fairgrounds that were never answered, was there the same sort of things going on there too? I would also like to know why there was no lump-sum contract, and how many more times will the price go up before the “golden goose” is done laying?
