You Said It, July 1, 2012

Note to all pyromaniacs: The governor has banned all personal fireworks. This means you. The first pop or flare I hear or see in my neighborhood will bring the Grand Junction police to your door with a citation.

Remember when the Fourth of July parades were in the morning when it was cool and the kids weren’t tired and cranky? Oh yes, the good old days.


Those who complain about their irrigation interruptions should consider our current situation and be considerate to the people in this valley who need water for their fields that supply food. If you need to have a green lawn to show off, please rethink your priorities.


If we the people who are on Orchard Mesa have to conserve to two days with water and two days turned off, why can’t the people in the city do the same? Let’s be fair. We all need to take part in cutting back and saving water.


What is wrong with all of you people who are using more water after they’ve asked us to cut back? You are probably all of the same idiots who will be shocked when we run out of water and don’t understand why they weren’t able to do something about it.


Apparently the officials at Colorado Mesa University think that they don’t need to heed the advice of many (including their own Water Center) regarding the conservation of water. For weeks I have driven past campus in the middle of the day to see them watering the school grounds — including sidewalks and streets surrounding the lawns. Then today I was on campus only to see them washing the sidewalks.


Curtis Swift, could you please explain to District 51 they do not need to water Rim Rock Elementary every day all day long?


So what you are saying Palisade is “hell no” to Dollar General but “hell yes” to pot shops and wineries.


The Avalon Theatre, botanical gardens, arts center, parks and recreation: the reason we do not have more fire stations and personnel to staff them.


I caught a foul ball at a recent Rockies game. The logo on it says Official Ball Pioneer League and it was made by Rawlings, a major sporting goods manufacturer. This ball was used in a minor league professional baseball game, a quintessential American sport. Almost hidden in very small letters are the words Made in China. Can we even make babies anymore, or have we lost that skill, too?


When the drone technology is available for public use, won’t it be great to be able to keep our eye on our government?


Is Grand Junction going to the dogs? Everywhere I go there is someone with a dog. I for one am sick of it. Some people like myself do not like shopping with dogs around (allergies). Leave the mutts home or go to Petco.


Thanks to the gentleman who helped out at the minor accident on Highway 65 above Powderhorn.


I see the Gasoline Cartel of Grand Junction is alive and well? Gasoline has not come down in relation with crude prices falling below $80 a barrel.


Wow! Enjoy the cartoon Pickles. Nice to get my morning laugh.


Me and my criminal friends don’t feel comfortable with all the police present at Country Jam. We are requesting that they leave so we can do what we want. This request worked at Strawberry Days, so I figured I would try it at all public venues.


Don’t you realize that complaining about something in the You Said Its is not going to change anything, or make you and others feel any better? Complaining will only make you feel worse. Unpleasant situations or not, enjoying your life is a choice, so either choose to deal with it and be happy or let your entire existence be sour and unenjoyable.
