You Said It, Jan. 13, 2013

Why would the gentleman who drove his car through the Safeway get a ticket for careless driving? That was the most precise parking job I’ve ever seen. Not a single potato chip was harmed.

I would like to say a great big thank you to the nice couple who took time to help me after I had fallen on ice at the mall and broke my leg. They stayed with me until the paramedics came. Their generous help and concern was very appreciated. I hope they have the best new year ever and their dreams come true.


My thanks and appreciation to Tony for stopping by and cleaning the snow from the drive and walkway for this old derelict couple. Thank you, my friend.


Message to the lady with license plates “GINGERR”: Range Rovers do not come with permission to park on the sidewalk in front of the post office. Maybe it will be an option on next year’s model?


I wanted to say thank you to Officer Salazar for the night he pulled my mom and me over. It makes me proud that I have made the changes I have. You also helped me view law enforcement from a new and positive perspective! (We got insurance the next day!)


“The only way to stop a bad guy with a nuclear weapon is with a good guy with a nuclear weapon.” Let’s arm all countries and people with nuclear weapons.


Why so much worry about police in schools? Cops have been there for years.


To Farrah and her staff at Goodwill for finding my boss’ jacket and saving it for me: You made my entire week. Thank you so much!


Now that law enforcement has decided to start honoring the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, does that mean we will no longer see illegal roadblocks and DUI checkpoints?


What is up with the Mesa County Sheriff’s Department? About 90 to 95 percent of the time they have no blotter in the paper. Are they that busy? People would like to know what’s going on in their area. How come the GJ Police Department, Fruita, Garfield County and Montrose have time to send their reports to the paper? Come on, people. Let’s do your job and inform the public as to what’s going on in the Clifton area.


Do you suddenly feel a swirling feeling? The front page of The Daily Sentinel clearly defines the path our state is headed. Maybe the Western Slope needs to seriously consider separating before it is too late. Our water will be used to flush our way of life.


I want to say thank you to the new owners of Your Emporium on 30 Road. Your store is a great addition to the Fruitvale area. We need stores like yours. It is beautiful inside and so clean. Just call me a very happy customer.


“I Do! I Do!” extend my sincere thanks to the kind soul who found, and turned in, my iPhone after the New Year’s Eve performance at the Avalon.


Rather than Denver offering large financial incentives to tech firms to move to Denver, they should offer them only if the firms will locate on the Western Slope where we have the water to sustain them. 


Feral cats become so from uncaring humans who abandon them without spay/neutering. A donation to your local animal shelter is a better solution to the problem than no-action complaining. No hungry cats in my neighborhood and haven’t seen a skunk or wild animal yet!


Thank you to the person who plowed our long driveway on 17 Road on New Year’s Day. We plowed snow with our car getting out that morning and when we came home that night someone had plowed our drive. You were so kind.


Correction from the You Said It editor: An item last Sunday cited the wrong Grand Mesa body of water. The writer wished to express gratitude for an autumnal rescue by huntsman, innkeepers and kin near Vela Reservoir, not Vega Lake. The corrected version is:

Thank you and a happy new year to the hunter who helped my mom and me at Vela Reservoir in October and took us to Alexander Lodge. Thanks to the lodge for your hospitality while we waited for help. Best wishes in your business. Thank you to my brother and nephew for a new battery and getting us home safe and sound.
