You Said It Column January 17, 2009

• I and the 13 other “older gentlemen” would like to thank the “young gentleman” who paid for our breakfast at the Strayhorn Grill in Loma. That was awesome!

• What a scumbag to leave puppies in a box alongside the road in De Beque Canyon. The least you could have done was to leave them somewhere warm. You just remember the word karma. I hope you rot in you-know-where!

• Oh my God! The atheists have scared off all the pastors and spiritual leaders at the City Council invocations! Oh dear Lord! What shall we do now?

• To the person who complained that the Colorado Division of Wildlife should have a biologist check their film: Perhaps you should do some checking of your facts before complaining. There are wood ducks in Colorado. Maybe the writer should check his knowledge of geography. Colorado extends east of the Continental Divide, and in eastern Colorado you will find wood ducks.

• To the “arm chair” biologist who wrote about the DOW last week. I am not a biologist, but I can tell you that wood ducks are in western Colorado. All one has to do is walk the trail along the canal near Connected Lakes and some of the small ponds and the river and you will see lots of wood ducks. They even have wood duck nesting boxes in the State Park and elsewhere.

• Life was much better when the majority ruled, a few atheists couldn’t dictate their will on the majority, when common sense ruled rather than the ACLU, and politically correct wasn’t correct.

• All letters sent out from inmates at the Mesa County Jail are copied. “Grandpa” is a real idiot for not knowing this. No one has to rat him out; he does it on his own. Now that takes real brains, especially since he’s been in there before. Also, he’s old enough to know there is no honor among thieves, so why should he be surprised that his buddy stole his drugs. Glad I’m not related to this scum.

• In response to the paragraph “to the cops” on Saturday the 10th, the “huge reeking mess (the ‘cave man’) has made” is not his. I have left clothing for him, as five others have, as well. It’s now our mess, which is no reeking mess. I want to thank Bunch Construction and the other nameless contributor. I will ask “the cave man” if he will accept these. He doesn’t stand on a corner asking for money, booze or drugs. I will keep in touch.

• It would have been cool if sometime this winter the school district’s snow crews had bothered to clear the Unaweep sidewalk at Orchard Mesa Middle School. It gets to be a real bear for us visually impaired to navigate that walk. Fortunately, the snows have not been heavy so the sun could melt portions between storms. Unfortunately this is an annual problem.

• The contractor who demolished the buildings and cleared the land around the police station is the same one who donated the most money to the city’s campaign to get the bond issue passed last November.

• In the Sentinel’s Jan. 11th article featuring the Grand Junction Trap Club, club President Hal Robbins stated the club receives no public monies. Mr. Robbins failed to mention the $27,500 in lottery money the club received from the Mesa County Commissioners. These funds greatly helped the progress of the club. Just wanted to give credit to the county.
