“All the dog haters who are repulsed by the thought of a small dog in a grocery store need to refocus on the more serious health issue.”

Colorado Retail Food Establishment Rules And Regulations
6 CCR 1010-2

8-106 Prohibiting of Animals
A. *Live animals shall be excluded from within the food establishment. This
exclusion does not apply to edible fish, crustacea, shellfish or fish in aquariums.
Live or dead fish bait shall be stored separately from food or food products.
*Patrol dogs accompanying security or police officers shall be permitted in
offices, storage areas and outside storage areas and outside establishment
premises. *Sentry dogs may be permitted to run loose in outside fenced areas for
security reasons. Guide and service animals accompanying blind, visually
handicapped, partially deaf or otherwise disabled persons or animals training for
this purpose shall be permitted in customer and office areas.
*B. While on duty, persons employed in the food operational areas of a retail food
establishment shall not care for or handle any pets, or patrol/sentry dogs.

To the person who doesn’t like the prevailing political sentiment in Grand Junction: a) you obviously didn’t research the area before you came here, b) move, but do your prospective area study in a little more depth this time.

What is the big problem with roundabouts?  There are bad ones and good ones.  The one at 24 & I-70 has way to may distractions and decorations…it is too complicated and very dangerous.  The one at 12th and Horizon is too small, but it was the first one, so cut it some slack.  The one in Fruita is somewhat similar to the one at 24 & I-70, but it works well.  The one in the Sam’s parking lot is kind of mysterious, but the traffic was really goofy before it was installed.  All the others work great! No stopping at red lights, wasting fuel.  We just need to fix the ones that don’t work very well.

A check with the Colorado State Health Dept. settles the fight about dogs and where they can be. No dog is allowed in or around any establishment where food for humans is sold, including the restaurants, coffee shops,groceries stores,even the hot dog stand at Home Depot or The Farmers Market. Every one should be considerate to those allergic to animals and leave fido at home where he can be cool and comfortable.
