The Broncos organization should be known as the revolving door for quarterbacks. Now that they have acquired Peyton Manning, I hope that door will stop turning.

Mr. Bowlen and Mr. Elway: There is no human being on this Earth worth $96 million, except all of the loving mothers.


Football déja vu. Acquire a used-up and fading star to bolster a struggling team. A year from now he’s on the sidelines. Just when Tebow was starting to shine.


Although I enjoyed the comments Tim Tebow’s mom wrote last Sunday in this column, her negative words about Peyton Manning were harsh and far from the truth. 


In Amy Hamilton’s informative article on the airport fence, it does seem to be much ado about nothing. But if the facts are correct that Mr. Rex Tippetts has added $50 million in grant money, several new airlines, and his board is happy with him, then I am puzzled at the comments from Councilwoman Laura Luke that he needs to get a new job.


What is this power trip the Grand Junction City Council is on? First Kadrich, and now Tippetts. Aren’t the council members exhibiting “abrupt personalities” by making such negative, public comments against Tippetts. Who’s next?


No, taxpayers should not pay for the airport gates to be changed. The people who own the hangars at the airport should pay.


Many people own homes near Colorado Mesa University’s new dorm at 12th Street and Orchard Avenue. Please tell us now if Orchard Avenue will close to through traffic. We’ll need to reroute ourselves.


If GJ city leaders have enough money to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on upgrading the audio-visual equipment at City Hall, perhaps this is an indication that the sales tax rate is higher than it needs to be.


It is so nice to know that when in need, two different couples passing by offered their assistance getting our high-centered car off the railroad tracks on G 7/10 and River roads in a potentially dangerous situation. Thanks for your invaluable help.

I just want to commend the Sentinel for publishing Doonesbury this week when so many papers have pulled it. It’s good to see that they don’t shy away from a controversial subject. I say good for you!


Hold the match — save the old Avalon for small events. Not everything has to be downtown. For years the city has owned idle land between 29 ½ and 30 roads. We could have a performing arts building on a park with lots of parking.


It amazes me that so many people in the Grand Valley support al-Qaida and the Taliban. If you use heroin or opium, you are putting money directly into the pockets of terrorists who are plotting to kill innocent American civilians. Also, buying cocaine and meth is putting money into the pockets of Mexican drug cartels.


Is it too much to ask, if you drop your kids off in a public place to do whatever, to take responsibility as a parent to either pick them up in a timely manner, or teach them how to act in public, before you let the attendants babysit your brats? Maybe the problem is that you let your kids act like monkeys, even when you are around.


There seems to be a misconception that the off-road area west of De Beque has a section of “open country” similar to the unlimited area near Fruita. Not so. Since the airport fence, this sensitive area has been slammed with motorcycles and ATVs. BLM, how about some enforcement?


Evidently there are a lot of people who think they are above the law. If there is any doubt, just watch the number of cars that pass you between Delta and Grand Junction if you are going the speed limit, or even five miles over.


I sure appreciate the help getting my car started at the Clifton Wendy’s. Real nice to know that there are still a few people around who are willing to help, and want to tell them thank you. All seven of you. Thanks.


I would like to kindly thank the person who found my keys and placed them under my door mat. This consideration will be passed on.
