You Said It, Aug. 5, 2012

The editorial in last Sunday’s edition did an outstanding job of explaining the differences between homelessness and vagrancy. Now we need someone in local government to do something about it. The homeless are not the ones we see lying all over the parks, panhandling and being a nuisance on the river trails. We should take a stance that they are not welcome here; we will not tolerate them and, do as other cities do, move them along.

Jared Wright for Fruita Fall Festival’s parade Grand Marshal!


Many thanks to the nice guy who saved me in the downpour on Saturday afternoon. I was stuck at a bus stop with no shelter when the rain started and I was getting drenched.


Are you kidding me? That wraparound signage is the best part of the building.

Get your government hands off my food stamps.


Kudos to the person in charge of the music at the GJ Rockies games. Great job!


Spend, spend, spend and hope, hope, hope. Please don’t touch the Avalon. Reopen the ice rink and generate dollars.


Orchard Avenue has a few property owners who have started junkyards and junk car lots. Some have so many cars they park them in front of neighbors’ yards, and there are backyards full of junk and tarps of all colors covering junk in front yards. Is there no ordinance in city limits about such things?


A huge thank you and hugs to the person/persons who found and returned my daughter’s wallet at the Ale House this past Saturday night. You are a blessing and truly understand the meaning of a selfless act.

I would like to thank The Friends of the Mustangs for the wonderful 30th year anniversary party. F.O.M. is a very caring group for our Little Book Cliff Wild Horse Range. Our horses are very lucky to have this group. Thank you so much from one of the F.O.M. Young Bloods.


A big thank you to the Grand Junction Bureau of Land Management. Catherine, Jim and all of the people involved in the making of the beautiful monument for the Friends of the Mustang’s 30th year anniversary party. It was a wonderful unexpected surprise.


Kudos to the nicely dressed lady who parked her car and got out and walked through some weeds to assist a man in a power chair whose dog had tangled its leash around one of the wheels.


Shame on you for stealing the spotlighted American flag from our yard in Summer Hills. Shame, shame, shame.


To the person complaining about the 29-year-old lady seeking assistance: Did you think that keeping the baby in filthy rags rather than dressing it well would better indicate poverty? Or that covering a tattoo that might have been applied years ago when the lady had a job would help to indicate her piety? When did being disabled become a synonym for laziness?


We would like to thank the person who paid for our lunches at Village Inn on North Avenue. What a pleasant surprise.
