You Said It, June 15, 2014

Please, please Mr. Hautzinger, for the community, show that there are consequences to bad actions. Pursue punishment for Ms. Charlesworth. She has dealt a slap to the face of all of us, and a once-convicted killer may well go free.

Perhaps if grown men acted their age, “senseless” things would be avoided in the first place, and families would still have loved ones around. Why is that so difficult to comprehend?


Moms, when you have your little ones at the splash pad, put away your phones and watch your kids. The texting can wait, but your little one can be gone in a flash, either into traffic or picked up by someone.


So, City Council is considering a tax on food we buy to donate to the food pantry so those who can’t/won’t work can get their food for free. I don’t think so.


I can’t believe that someone would steal the tools out of my husband’s truck in front of our home. Don’t you know you are stealing food out of our children’s mouths?


To the driver of the darker blue Prius that was racing through the Fruita City Market parking lot on Friday, I must apologize for the finger gesture I gave you as you raced by me and honked. I’m just glad you didn’t hit or kill any of the youngsters or elderly that were walking in the lot.


A whole article harping on the homeless driving folks away and never once mentioned that a total lack of parking — can’t park on Ute or Pitkin — for Whitman Park might be more prohibitive to its revitalization than said transients. Location has a lot to do with it.


Who in the world would want to go to a one-block-square park with four high traffic one-way streets surrounding it?


It seems like Pennington is about fighting the feds more than he is about fighting crime.


Does Mesa County get any of the tax money coming in from pot sales? No pot shops should equal no tax benefits.


Parents, please, please teach your children the difference between fantasy and reality.


Have you noticed that your political party affiliation is printed next to your name on the mail-in envelope for the primary ballot? Why does the mail carrier need to know this info? And, for that matter, anyone else?


I’m disappointed in the new restrictive online billing/guest structure of Come on guys, you’re not The New York Times.


To the person complaining about 10 minutes of news and 20 minutes of weather in a half-hour of our local news broadcast: What channel are you watching? I get about 5 minutes of news, 10 minutes of weather and 15 minutes of commercials.


Many thanks to the generous donor who paid for our meal at Denny’s on Horizon Drive on June 9. It was a blessing and much appreciated. We will pay it forward. Thanks again.


Nice job covering the evaluations of teachers. But, I want to know who evaluates principals and administrators? Who gets to decide if they stick around?

Why are ineffective administrators still in positions that compromise the educational experience of our students and threaten effective teachers? School board members: Do your jobs. Ask questions and demand that effective leadership be a requirement for administrators.


Will the person who borrowed the lighthouse yard ornament from my patio please return it. It has little value and means nothing to you. It means everything to me because it belonged to my late sister. Please return the lighthouse, thank you.
