You Said It, Sept. 16, 2012

My wife and I took in the festivities downtown to celebrate Operation Foresight. What a wonderful day to be sitting on a bench on Main Street surrounded by stunning ‘60s-era cars, beautiful weather and a great crowd of people. All were voicing their appreciation of the vision that took place 50 years ago and continues downtown today.

Is there not a commercial that Manning won’t do for cash? Just because he or other celebrities endorse a product for pay sure doesn’t make me want to go out and purchase it.


The Blue Angels are going to be roaring into town next weekend and I for one couldn’t be more happy. To me, the roar of those engines is all-American. I just want to say to all the sticks-in-the-mud who will complain about the noise to just get over it for three days and let the rest of us enjoy the adrenalin-pumping.


Poor Delta. First they’re the dirtiest (dead bear, anyone?) and now they have unembarrassed wingnuts with conspiracy theories. Another example of a few giving a bad name to an otherwise lovely community.


Do we need to get a petition going to keep Steven Michael Stagner away from community access? Personally, I believe if he was sane enough to recognize his wrong in his killing of four people, then he’s sane enough to stand trial. We as a community need to fight the amount of freedom he has had and not allow any more freedoms.


Dog owners: Please keep your barking dogs in the house during the day while you are gone or buy a barking collar for them.


For everyone who uses the parking lot on 29 Road and the Riverfront Trail head: Pick up your trash. This is private property that the owner is kind enough to let the public use it to park. My thanks to the owner for the use of his property.


We just returned from a trip to Newport, R.I. I was amazed at how clean the town was. Why? We saw several signs that read “$500 fine for littering; cigarette butts are litter too!” It worked because I didn’t see a butt anywhere. We could do the same here and use the money to help our schools.


Please, Grand Junction, no more roundabouts.


My biggest concern over Brady Trucking remaining in this scenic corridor designation is when I sit down to eat my sandwich on the patio of a certain microbrewery that intends to be a Brady neighbor, is that extra pepper on my meal or just diesel soot?


Happy to see Churchill still unemployed and hope he always will be. What a dud.


A long overdue thank you goes to a man who helped my daughter when the trailer she was towing came off her hitch. You took the time to stop and help her and even let her use your hitch and made sure she got home safely. You truly are a wonderful person. Thank you for taking the time to help her.


I see a car wreck coming. The weeds on the southeast corner of E 1/2 and 31 roads are so tall that even in a pickup, it is hard to see cars driving west on E 1/2 Road. Now that school is back in session, it will only be a matter of time. Be careful at this intersection.


To the rude neighbor in Swan Meadows subdivision: The neighborhood is not “yours” to do as you wish. You may rent or own a house, but the neighborhood, by definition, includes everyone who lives there. I’m sorry you weren’t raised to have more consideration for your neighbors.


Stalled car, lunch rush, intersection of U.S. Highway 6&50 and 24 1/2 Road. A multitude of thanks to the men and especially the dad with four children who helped get us out of harm’s way. May their lives be richly rewarded.
