You Said It, Feb. 3, 2013

The need for five county commissioners has never been greater than now. What action is required?

After seeing the front page article regarding Ms. Unfug’s dismissal and reading the email written by Ms. Pugliese, I am so ashamed of myself. It appears I voted in another arrogant female county commissioner.


Let’s see: Chantal, Donna, Rose. Can you spell $62,500 catfight cost to the county taxpayers?


I wonder how many law enforcement officers and firefighters we could have if we didn’t have to pay out severance money every election.


I send my prayers to the family of Caleb. He did what he loved. I wish him peace in heaven, where I know he’s riding already. I wish his brother a quick recovery, and keep riding in your brother’s honor.


To complement the D.O.G.S. group formed for student safety, another group has formed in response to the board member wanting to introduce his version of American history. It’s called C.A.T.S., or Citizens Against Textbook Stupidity.


I’m getting a little tired of reading about the people who can afford to eat out at a nice restaurant paying for the meal of some other people who can afford to eat out at a nice restaurant. Instead of buying each other’s meals, why not really be philanthropic and donate that money to the food kitchens or homeless shelters?


Hooray for last Sunday’s story “Taking stock at National Stock Show.” I have submitted several letters about the lack of coverage of the Western Slope ranching industry. It’s about time. Let’s see more in The Daily Sentinel.


If you could know the smiles you generated after you, a grandma with your grandchild, turned in the two $100 bills I dropped while searching my coupons this past Sunday at City Market. Thank you for the many lessons via your integrity and honesty to not only me but the cheerfully helpful City Market employees who assisted in the search.


Last Thursday when I was shopping at the Clifton City Market I saw a lady wearing a beautiful coat. Me and my sister complimented her and jokingly told her that when she was tired of it she was welcome to send it to my address. A little while later her husband came up to us and said his wife would really like me to have her coat. I would like to thank her from the bottom of my heart for her gift to me.


You know what would be great is if we put some of those spare change won’t make a change signs at city hall.


If the posted speed limit tells me to not drive faster and I also do not have to drive at that posted speed, does this also mean that I can drive as slow as I want down a road? Does this mean that I am now allowed to hold up traffic and annoy other drivers?


To the driver of the lifted Chevy Duramax in the Dollar Tree parking lot on North Avenue who door-jacked the little red Mazda on the night of Jan. 28: You could have manned up and accepted responsibility for the mirror you broke off the door and the dent.


Thank you, thank you, thank you to the honest person who turned in my purse at Del Taco.


You ask why do we need 30-round magazines? It’s simple: because the government has 30-round magazines.


They are not assault weapons until you, the person, assaults someone with it. Get real, people.


Cars don’t kill people, people kill people, so let’s do away with all auto regulations and traffic laws.


Gun control means clear-headed consideration and using both hands.


So the answer to gun violence is a return to a “Wild West” mentality where everybody packs? And we call ourselves a civilized society?


What a guy! He found my purse and returned it to Rimrock Walmart. How lucky I am we have such honest people like him.


A special thanks to the kind lady who helped us pay our bill at Amigo Animal Clinic on Jan. 21.


Local Grand Valley talent performed marvelously in The Theatre Group’s presentation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” last weekend. There are so many wonderful musicians and actors in our own area.
