You Said It, June 2, 2013

The town of Nucla (pronounced “Nutcla”) should carry its gun ordinance one step further. Require each gun owner to shoot at least one bad guy a year. Soon there will be no crime in Nucla.

If I were a JUCO attendee, I would be highly insulted by the May 23 comments by Steve Beauregard. He made those of us who live in the city of Grand Junction appear to be at least reluctant hosts, at best just unappreciative of the great opportunity JUCO affords this community. Most of us are very happy to be able to enjoy this once-a-year opportunity.


I find it amazing how many folks can’t seem to imagine the reason my high beams are flashing on and off rapidly on my motorcycle. Visibility. I’ve been in the hospital (and then crutches, cane, etc) because a cager did not see me.


I just want to say thank you to Larry Johnson for all of his hard work on the Grand Junction Fire FC GMIT Soccer Tournament. You worked many, many hours to help make this a successful tournament. You did so many behind-the-scenes things that nobody even knows about. In my opinion it would not have been a success without you. Thank you to you and your beautiful wife.


A drunk driver will run a red light. A stoned driver will just sit there admiring the pretty green light.


Rumor has it that District 51 is now the sweetheart of the national tea party. The plan is to take over the school board in the next election and bring education to a halt. Won’t we be famous! If we value our children in public school, please stand up and run for the board of education, seriously.


It would be lovely if the people with car-sized boom boxes wouldn’t boom all of our houses in the Hawthorne Park area. Maybe it is time for a noise ordinance? We all don’t need our walls and windows rattling every time you cruise through our neighborhoods.

What a nice surprise! Thank you to the person(s) who bought my family lunch at the Egg & I.


On behalf of the letter carriers in Mesa County, we thank each household that donated non-perishable food at mailboxes for the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. You helped in a small way to provide nourishment for a healthier life and hope for a brighter tomorrow. We appreciate the help of each volunteer who gave up their Saturday for our cause. We look forward to an even bigger food drive next May.


As a retired professional, I chuckle at the submittals by business types who boast of working their 90-hour workweeks yet balance their lives by listing family as their first passion. If you do the math, between working that 13-hour day, getting some shut-eye and doing typical household chores, that scant remaining time barely says, “Hi, bye and what’s your name, again?”


I see John Hickenlooper, who was only too eager to sign knee-jerk legislation limiting the rights of law-abiding citizens because of an ambush-style mass murder, can’t seem to bring himself to do anything about an actual criminal, Nathan Dunlap, convicted of the very same things that prompted the recent laws (ambush killings of multiple people). Interesting.


Kudos to the Clifton Water District for their quick response to our water main break on Shoshone Street. They came out right away and had a crew out there in a very short time, even though it was getting dark, and they worked tirelessly through the night until about 3 a.m. to fix the leak and repair the street. I, for one, appreciate their effort on our part to fix the leak and restore our water.
