You Said It, June 17, 2012

So I guess the rest of us can cancel our insurance policies now. We don’t need to worry if our house burns down because the city will bail us out. Give me a break.

I love dogs, but I do not want to be subjected to your cute little Fido when I am doing my errands. I am highly allergic to all but a few breeds and my husband, poor soul, is afraid of dogs. Why do we have to suffer because you are so insecure that you need the company of your dog at all times and cannot leave it at home where he/she belongs?


When will people realize that releasing balloons for whatever reason is just not cool. They create litter and wildlife get tangled up in them. Stop it now.


Where is Art on the Corner? We thought for sure they would be up by farmers market.


Are you planning a move to western Colorado? The best advice is bring your own water.


Right on to the person who complained about the lack of thank you notes. Why continue to give to those who don’t appreciate the money/gift enough to send a thank you note? But, at least you received a text or email. We usually don’t even hear from them again until the next event.


Will the city of Grand Junction allow these vendors to sell fireworks with a fire ban in place?


To my fellow biker: I water my “weeds” to provide habitat for numerous wild fowl and for deer to forage on during the winter. Instead of just driving by, stop in and say hi.


Thanks to all the great folks on and around Rainbow Ranch in the Redlands for helping us get our tiny, terrified, little dog back. He had to spend one night in the wild, but thanks to a call, we got him back.


Come on people, hit-and-runs are a real bummer. I was parked at Albertsons on the Redlands on June 6. When I came out, my left rear taillight was broken and the quarter panel shoved out of place — $800 in damage.


While I am sorry that the 15-year-old kid from Cedaredge was injured, the real heroes of this situation were the many men and women who work for the Cedaredge, Delta, Hotchkiss and Olathe fire departments, Delta County ambulance crews, law enforcement, etc., that responded. The young man may have had the best of intentions, but he put himself in danger and had to utilize resources that were badly needed on the fire scene.


Congratulations to the Theater Project’s spectacular production of “Cats.” What a wonderful opportunity for the community volunteers to perform music and dance.


I look forward to reading your headlines each day. Someone in your office has a wonderful sense of humor as well as a great command of the English language.


Once again, good people abound in our town. Thank you so much to the young mother who paid my $50 grocery bill when I realized I had left my wallet at home.


Have just returned from trip to South Dakota by way of northern Colorado and Wyoming. Saw no homeless people holding signs or hanging out in local parks in cities we passed through. Why does Grand Junction make our beautiful town a haven for the homeless?


A resounding thank you to the Regal Theatre for bringing the Metropolitan Encore performances to Grand Junction. Looking forward to next week’s performance.


Why does everyone have to have a credit card and credit card debt? Credit cards need to go away and everyone needs to live within their means.


Regarding the “Watch for Motorcycles” campaign: Motorcycle riders could help their cause by getting rid of the black leather — the same color as the asphalt — and wearing high-visibility clothing. Not as cool but much safer.


I think Grand Junction’s favorite new game is “How many people can I tailgate in a day?” I think my new favorite game is going to be “How often can I slam on my brakes to avoid the phantom cat?” Just sayin.’
