You Said It, Feb. 19, 2012

Great food, great brew, great atmosphere, great people. Glad to have you in Fruita, Suds Bros. Brewery.

I admire the young man holding to his religious principles in refusing to sing Islamic religious music. By teaching Islamic religious music, we are doing exactly what the Taliban wants us to do.


The people who scream freedom of religion the loudest believe it only pertains to them.


Totally loving Doonesbury.


Community Hospital’s recent award honoring Gene Taylor, recognizing Gene for his decades of service to the Grand Valley, was a fine gesture. Gene has done so much for so many in a hundred different ways. We will always be grateful.


He was young, wearing a stocking cap, and she was a beauty. Valentine’s Day was being celebrated at Applebee’s with steak and even a strawberry margarita. Our waitress tells us our tab has been picked up by the young couple and we waved thank you not really believing this was happening. How we wish we could have thanked them properly.


I personally congratulate Ms. Miller for standing up in protest of grinding/freaking at Central High.


Not to be outdone in the debauchery sweepstakes started by the Central High School grinding exposé and continued with the Fruita WTF campaign, it is being leaked out that the chamber and the city have anted up to join in these Persigo Olympics and counteracted with its new branding logo: UR in GJ.


A four-day school week may indeed save money for the school district. However, single working-parent families and families with both parents working will have to find sitters or some type of day care for that full day school is not in session. Check out the cost of day care.


If School District 51 goes to a four-day school week, a 20 percent reduction, are the administrative staff and teachers going to take a 20 percent reduction in salaries?


Can’t help but wonder about the guy in the classified section saying he can’t pay his bills and wants money from anybody. How can he afford to run the ad for several days?


Last week I watched my last Grammy Awards. If I wanted to watch dancing, I would watch “Dancing with the Stars.” This one should be called the “Dancing Fiasco With Songs”!


I am glad to hear that at least one young driver did not just bolt into a roundabout and if she had to stop to be sure, good for her. Shame on the red SUV. Impatience and rudeness are not part of road rules.


I was amazed by the small story in last week’s Sentinel about Romanoff’s, Norton’s and Bennet’s hundreds of thousands of dollars of campaign debt. Just who is the money owed to and what is the plan to pay it off? And these people think they should be setting policy for the rest of us?


Just spent the most wonderful evening at Two Rivers Convention Center. Thank you for the amazing dinner, wonderful show (“Love Letters”) and beautiful memories on Valentine’s weekend. So glad dinner theater is back in town. Look forward to many more productions from Smoke & Mirrors Theatre Co.
