You Said It, July 20, 2014
I can just hardly wait to find out who the Mesa County Republican Central Committee chooses to become our candidate for Mesa County sheriff. They have such a sterling record of good judgment.
Steve King ought to teach us his secret for being in two places at a time. I could really get a lot done if I could accomplish this feat he has apparently mastered.
There is a serious problem with weeds at the southeast corner of 31 and E½ roads. Going north on 31 Road at the intersection looking east, you can only see approaching traffic for about 50 yards because of the high weeds and I drive a truck. With school starting soon, this busy intersection is going to be a problem. Please cut the weeds before there is a serious accident.
To the person who was at Spoons Bistro when they saw a man with a gun strapped to his waist and it made you uncomfortable: I dare ask you, how many people are carrying a concealed weapon on their person that you have no idea about? I guess if it is out of sight, then out of mind? Those who carry legally aren’t out to harass you as you eat breakfast — they carry in the event that they can protect you and others should some person who has gone off their rocker decide at that moment to start a bloodbath with intent to kill innocent bystanders. He can eat breakfast by me any day.
The Center for Biological Diversity has petitioned the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to reintroduce grizzly bears to Colorado and Utah. We do not need anymore predators. It is a constant battle now for the livestock producers to keep the coyotes, bears and lions out of our herds. They suffer tremendous losses every year because of the predators. Also, Fish and Wildlife is worrying about the dwindling number of mule deer in Colorado. Just wait until the grizzlies come. They will love to eat those newborn fawns.
I wonder which Airport Authority members were slated to get those trucks?
Boo hoo, St. Mary’s finally has some competition and now they won’t play nice. Shame on them and their CEO.
Scott Tipton built a trinket business next to Mesa Verde National Park and now, in fear of his own shadow, he walks away from a park designation in Grand Junction. Kudos are due to Scott McInnis for stirring up enough red herrings throughout the comment period to scare his mini-me out of running a bill.
Thanks to the gentleman whom we had never met before who stooped down and tied the shoelaces of a 91-year-old man in Safeway on Tuesday. Was much appreciated.
It was so sad to see last week’s You Said It comment calling those of us who do not choose to fly the flag on the 4th “neglectful.” The flag, like children and pets, requires special care and tending. Those who do not have the time, ability or inclination to take on those duties should not be scolded if we make a thoughtful and responsible decision on any of these activities. So, writer, be proud of your service, for which we all thank you, fly your flag proudly, and leave the rest of us free to make our own decisions — which is what I thought your service was all about.
My sister and I were pleasantly surprised and appreciated so very much the generosity of a couple who bought our lunch at Denny’s last Saturday. It brightened up our day. Thank you so much and we’ll pass it on.
I wonder if the citizens of our fair city really want what the police force and elected officials are giving them. Entrapment in liquor stings, cops waiting outside bars to arrest anyone who has had a couple of drinks, sobriety checkpoints, busting massage places, outlawing the voters’ wishes about marijuana, closing the water feature for reasons unknown, ticketing normally law-abiding citizens for minute things like parking the wrong way in a quiet residential neighborhood. The cops in this town have an authority complex. Do we really want our town to be so anti-fun?
After enjoying a delicious lunch at Camilla’s Kaffe in Fruita, we three ladies were pleasantly surprised to learn someone had paid our bill. Thank you so very much and God bless you.
People will complain about anything. The solar panels at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center weren’t made to protect cars. They were made to get the sun to create a money-saving way to power the hospital. Geez!
