You Said It, Jan. 19, 2014

The entire airport board should be fired. If they knew about the shenanigans that were going on, they are criminals. If they didn’t know, they are incompetent.

“Stoned in Denver” is enjoying the benefits of majority rule. If you don’t like it, perhaps you should move. Places you may find more to your liking include: North Korea, China, Cuba.

 

To all the individuals who chose to reply to “Stoned in Denver,” do your research before you open your mouth or write hateful comments. I am not a user, but I will say that I have never had a problem with a person who has. In fact, I have had more problems with individuals who drink alcohol than any other group. I take that back, I have had more issues with people who have their nose stuck up in the air. You people truly make the world less pleasant. Go do your research on so called “stoned” people, or maybe you should get brave enough to remove yourself from your comfort zone and go talk to someone who does use.

 

We all know the horrible influence big money interests have on our democracy anymore, but for Rep. Ray Scott to publicly announce that higher oil and gas profits are more important than the air his constituents breathe is absolutely flabbergasting.

 

Clifton must really want God. They stole baby Jesus right out of the church nativity display!

 

I think the guides who maimed the big cats should be shot in the foot and put out on Mount Garfield. Let the punishment fit the crime and the true hunters can take care of business.

 

I wish to thank Robert St. John for his contribution to radio in the Grand Valley. We couldn’t start our days without hearing what Ed Whiskey and Julia Wild were up to. Robert is a shining example of what good entertainment can be. Thanks again, Robert St. John, may your retirement be magical.

 

Erin McIntyre, I enjoy your column. You are delightful. I want to tell you that stepping over the witch egg shell won’t make you crazy — you already are! Love, a fan.

 

My son and I would like to thank the Marine at the Village Inn on North Avenue for buying our dinner. So nice of him.

Years ago the local TV stations decided to take off the national news from 5 a.m. to 7 a.m. Now we have three stations in the morning with two that are the same reporting, except different ads. So it seems to me that the TV stations are more interested in saving money on staff and reporters while collecting money for different ads. How about turning one of the 2 stations that are owned by the same people into national news in the morning?

 

Isn’t it wonderful that the city is going to start developing Matchett Park? Does anyone remember 30-plus years ago, a piece of land, just down the road, was given to the city to be used as a park? This is located on the north side of Patterson between 29 1/2 and 30 roads. Why hasn’t this ever been developed into a park, as was the intention of the donor? I am sure all the neighbors would appreciate having a nice neighborhood park instead of a dusty vacant lot.

 

Thank you to the two ladies and man for helping my husband and me Saturday on H Road when our dog Blue collapsed and was in distress. Your kindness and caring helped us get through a very difficult time. We got Blue home and our friend and vet came and put him down. He is in a better place and resting now. It meant so much to us knowing Blue was with good people until the end.

 

“You Said It” used to be my favorite part of the Sunday Sentinel. Lately it is nothing but gripe, gripe, gripe. People are even griping about the thoughtful things people do. Could we give some people, events and issues the benefit of the doubt and try to look at the positive side of things for a change or just agree to disagree and let it go at that? It would be so refreshing.

 

Thank you to the wonderful lady who purchased a large, plush horse at the 29 Road Safeway last Friday for my granddaughter! That act of kindness brightened her day, as well as all of us who were with her. As her mother said, “Kindness is powerful!”

 

I wish the local female newscasters would dress according to the weather and keep their low neck and sleeveless clothes until summer. They actually look out of place. It makes me cold just to look at them.

For the people who disapprove of Stoned in Denver. How naive you are. You deal with people who smoke pot on a daily basis all the time and you would never know. Many successful people in this community do smoke. Many people who have jobs and are a contribution to this economy smoke. Many people who help you in the store, on the phone, or even open the door for you in public places smoke pot. Welcome to 2014. Get with the program and get Mesa County to open pot shops down here. People are smoking whether you agree with it or not, so we may as well take the money from the drug dealers and put it into our economy. People you need to wake up and stop being so judgmental!!!
