You Said It, Jan. 5, 2014

I am on my way to Denver to purchase marijuana. I will spend two days at a motel (I will be too stoned to drive back the same day). While in Denver I will take advantage of all the amenities they have to offer: restaurants, malls, gun shops and movie theaters. I will have a great time spending my money in a town I don’t reside in. Think about this, Grand Junction, Delta and Montrose.

There was a half-page disclaimer in the Sentinel on Friday explaining to the citizens why the city workers could not do their job and remove the snow from the streets. Excuses ran the gamut from this was an unusual occurrence (not) to it was snowing too hard (not). I saved the article and when the guy from the city calls me and asks me why my sidewalks were not shoveled within the requisite 24-hour period, I will send him a copy. Surely for the salaries you are drawing, you can do your job.

 

Thank you, High Desert Opera, for bringing such a high-quality production of “Les Miserables” to Grand Junction. The opening night was absolutely magnificent! If you have any interest at all in Les Mis, please do not miss this opportunity to experience this epic production right here in River City!

 

You can only laugh at the oxymoron organization, Environmentally Conscious Consumers for Oil Shale. A similar group might be Law-abiding Citizens for More Bank Robbing.

 

I so enjoyed reading the weather forecast in today’s paper (Saturday). It read, “High 31, low 19, Cloudy with lingering crud.” That definitely hit the nail on the head! Thanks for the chuckle!

 

Thanks to the person/persons who bought my lunch at Dos Hombres on Dec. 15. What a nice surprise to find that you had paid. I will pass it forward.

 

Here is a sincere “thanks” to Sgt. Tim Smith and all of his National Guard soldiers who helped with The Salvation Army toy and food handout last week. My wife and I were volunteers who helped them pull the event off, and without them it could not have happened. It is a pleasure to work with a group who has such a giving work ethic. We are privileged to have them in our community.

 

Kudos to your recent editorial goading our community leaders to take decisive action in lifting our economy out its long-term doldrums. Between the seasonal inversion and their lack of ideas, I’m close to getting the retail sporting outlets to put my T-shirt line on their racks. Welcome to Happy Valley: Home of the Stag Nation.

 

Colorado revamps its entire teacher evaluation system that requires massive man-hours for administrators to view live teaching activities, yet District 51 gives permanently renewing annual $2,000 stipends for mail-order certifications like national board certification through video and email? Time to rethink that system.

 

My husband and I would like to thank the man at the Clifton Wendy’s for buying our lunch. That was so nice to recognize his three-war service.

 

Kudos and thank you to my paper lady, Cindy Serrano, who for the past couple of years has, without fail, each and every day, come down our one-quarter-mile lane, up a rather steep hill and put the Sentinel on our front lawn. Many times she has broken the trail through snow. Cindy, you are very much appreciated.

 

I guess it is just society as a whole. The first five and six out the top 10 of the AP’s sports stories had nothing to do with anyone winning or losing on the court or field. Murder, drugs and fake Internet girlfriends dominate. Kind of sad.

 

Actually, you know, I agree with the totally awesome complaint about people using “and I’m like” in every sentence. But on second thought, I’m like, “Whoa! This can be used as a perfect litmus test for identifying and avoiding morons.”

 

Everyone feels it is about time for the bike riders to pay their fair share of road use. We make new bike lanes, they use the roads continually, we have to close roads so they can have their races. Come on, someone, how do we start making them pay their fair share?

 

What is the use of having TV stations KJCT and KKCO when the news on each is the same and even the news folks appear on both stations? Why have duplicate news? We are going to watch the other news channel.

Most bike riders pay the same taxes that you do to drive their vehicles, they just choose not drive them on those occasions that you see them riding.  Also there is less wear and tear on the roads, less demand for gas which in turn leaves more for you at a cheaper price and less smog for you to breath.
