You Said It, Aug. 19, 2012

Are you kidding me right now? The blame is on the “Obama economy”? Maybe Jared and Rachael Wright should learn to live within their means. Twenty-nine years old and they have accrued that much debt to “put together the American dream”? I’m 55 and am still trying to achieve that! And at 29 who needs $6,200 worth of jewelry? I’m still working to afford that luxury, too. Give me a break!

I wish the Sentinel would stick to writing non-biased political articles rather than their smear campaign against Jared Wright. He clearly made mistakes, but so have millions of others. I have no doubt that what he has been through has made him the perfect candidate to go to Denver. He understands first hand how poor financial decisions can derail progress.


I wish the Sentinel would have dedicated as much attention and detail to President Barack Obama’s failed economic policies as they did to Jared Wright’s financial missteps. As an independent voter I will gladly continue to pick up dog poo with your election coverage until you can cover the issues fairly, honestly and evenly.


Well, we got rid of Brown, now Wright should be next. Who in the world would vote for either if they had a choice?


I would like to know why the theaters are checking women’s purses since the attack in Aurora. When in our recent history has a woman gone into a public place and opened fire on innocent bystanders? I think it’s a ploy to find pop and snacks in mom’s purse because most of us can get a nice dinner in a restaurant for what they charge for popcorn and a drink.


As a visitor reading your newspaper, I agree that it is much less expensive to rent a Red Box, but my wife and I enjoy going to the theater. It’s fun, and we’ve always been willing to pay the extra cost. But seeing a film at your Regal movie house was not fun with the ridiculous search of my wife’s purse. When we are in town again we will find other entertainment venues.


I guess I am very confused. The monument turned down a bike race permit because they want fewer people in the park, and yet they want to change the status to a national park so they will get more visitors. Can someone straighten me out?


I thought it was a health violation to take an animal into an establishment that prepared or sold food. However, I saw a small dog taken into the food side of Walmart. At one point, it was in the child seat of the shopping cart. If you are going to put your child in the seat of the shopping cart, you may want to use a disinfectant wipe. You may also want to watch where you step. What is next? Dogs in booster seats in restaurants?


While we were having breakfast at IHOP, the manager came by our booth to tell us that the couple sitting in a booth across from us had paid for our meal. This was a wonderful surprise and gesture. I want to say thank you and we want to do this for someone else now.


We’ve really enjoyed watching the ongoing transformation of the little house on the northeast corner of Patterson and Seventh over this last year!


A huge thanks goes out to all the neighbors who came from their dinner tables and fought the Unaweep Canyon fire until firefighters could respond. Your help and the firemen’s was much appreciated. Thank you.


I am amused by all the ads for “virtual” or online education. Students in these ads are happy that they can sleep or play all day then do classes at night. Imagine what great employees these kids will become when they have to do what someone else tells them to do, how to do it, and when to do it.


In the 20 years I’ve worked at this business, there has never been a day we haven’t received some mail. Thursday and Saturday of last week we received no mail. This is our busiest time of the month for mail. What’s going on at the post office?


A big thank you to all who checked on my husband when his car was stalled on 32 Road. Your kindness is much appreciated.


The Altrusa Club of Grand would like to thank all of those who donated food or money to our food drive for Homeward Bound at the Clifton City Market. What a wonderful outpouring of generosity and thoughtfulness. Many hungry people will benefit from your kindness.
