You Said It, June 1, 2014

Every year I have to repeat this because people simply do not listen. Please put a barrier on the back of your truck if you insist on putting your dog(s) back there. They can, and they will, jump out. I have seen this happen with dire results. A few pieces of PVC pipe or wood can be put up to protect them. And don’t forget that the bed of that truck is metal and it gets hot on their feet. If you love your dogs, show it and take care of them the way you should.

No news regarding new administrators at Grand Junction High School is disappointing. Someone needs to save the school. Which board member can do the right thing? Replace ineffective leadership.


A special thank you to Jamie Hamilton and Bruce Hill for making our 3-year-old granddaughter’s first JUCO so memorable. Thanks again for your kindness.


Maybe many other VA hospitals have done an inferior job, but based upon my personal experiences I have nothing but good to say about our Grand Junction hospital and staff. I have been going to this hospital for the past 10 years, had numerous health issues and have always had immediate care — no waits and usually immediate tests and treatments.


It’s time to step into the 21st century and install some security cameras downtown and around the parks.


If my artwork were as unsophisticated as some, I wouldn’t mind it being garped up with yarn either.


A few weeks ago someone wrote about the City Market in Fruita. She was so right. City Market has had a monopoly on the Lower Valley for far too long. It’s time Safeway and Albertsons woke up. We in the Lower Valley would welcome another market down here. The competition would be good for all concerned, except for those that might be benefiting from there only being one market in town.


Many thanks to the gentleman who got my attention on Broadway Thursday. He stopped me to hand me the keys to my other car, which were sitting on top of the trunk of the car I was driving. Had he not taken great effort to stop me, they would have soon slid off to be gone forever. Nice guys are OK in my book.

Just attended a funeral on Thursday at the Veterans Memorial Cemetery. Thanks to the Honorary Color Guard. It was wonderful and inspiring. Great job to the Honorary Color Guard.


Thank you, Steve and Denise Hight, for a wonderful historical tour of Fruita. As a newcomer to the area, it was fascinating to learn about the rich history of the area. Taking time to share your knowledge and passion of Fruita is greatly appreciated. I look forward to reading your book to learn more.


Several months ago the only free over-the-air Christian television station was discontinued. This is a tremendous loss in our area. Especially to the countless homebound and bedridden people or those unable to afford cable or Internet. Is there a way our many churches and television and radio stations can join together to restore religious TV programming to our community?


To the person who said to leave your small dog at home, my small dog goes everywhere with me and I can assure you it’s cleaner, smarter and has better behavior than most adults and children I’ve seen around here. So if you don’t like it, why don’t you leave yourself and your opinion at home!


To all you recent high school graduates who sent graduation announcements to everyone so you can receive gifts: Have you sent thank you cards yet?


To the lady bicyclist in Riverbend Park, thank you so much for your extra effort in seeing that my Dobie and I were reunited.


The gentlemen at the Horizon Drive Grease Monkey are very kind, courteous and helpful. I thought it was time to get my car serviced but they assured me, after their checking, that I didn’t need a thing yet. I appreciate their time and their honesty. They would not accept a tip.

The one thing we need to remember with the recent problem with the V.A. Hospitals, is that those causing the problems are a small representation of the majority of hard-working employees who do thier best to provide great care to our Veterans. Some of those employees are Veterans themselves. So before we get on the soapbox and destroy the entire system, let’s not forget those that do try to do the right thing do make a difference!

RE:  The person with the love for the small, smart clean dog.  Well folks some of us are very allergic to dogs, smart, clean, small, or large.  I bet you are the folks that would give peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to a kid who likes jelly.  I am no longer going to be nice to those of you who bring them in so they can smell or lick the fruit and veggies.  Leave the darn Animal at home.  Please

to those of you who take your dogs “everywhere”, I worked in Grocery stores all over this valley for many years. I have had customers come to me with their eyes swollen and congested asking why a dog is let in my store. What’s the answer I should give? does the state health law allow this? short of “bonifide service dogs” I wouldn’t think so. What would you tell your customers? I love dogs as much as anybody, but not in grocery stores or other stores for that matter! Common sense will not be tolerated when discovered at the company!
