You Said It, March 3, 2013

When they remodel the Avalon Theatre I hope they do not remove the 9/11 memorial statue on the corner. It’s a beautiful tribute to those who died that terrible day and should be left where it is so people can see it, and remember those who died that day and who died helping people coming out of the Twin Towers.

CPR Works! To all those at the Splish Splash car wash the afternoon of Feb. 5: He made it! Our sincere thanks to the gentleman in the truck next to us who reacted without hesitation to help save a life.


Kudos to the Sentinel staff for its Thursday editorial comments on the Fruita 8–9 school attack. If only our politicians were as bold and direct.


Thanks so much to all the wonderful people who took the time out of their busy days to stop and help me after my car was rear-ended on Broadway Monday afternoon. I truly appreciate your time and concern.


The dusk-to-dawn lights, spotlights, floodlights and security lights are an invasion of our right to sleep in the dark. Why doesn’t everyone who owns one of the lights above just stand outside when it’s dark and see how far up the street and through the backyards it illuminates? The point of having these is to light up YOUR yard, not everyone else’s.


To the powers-that-be at Arby’s: Could you please put one of your restaurants out in the south part of town. I love your menu, but it is so far to go from Clifton down to 12th Street.

It appears that undocumented students will be granted in-state tuition. Since these senators are so proud of themselves, what about doing something that would make American citizens proud: Extend in-state tuition to all college-bound seniors in the United States whose mothers, fathers, uncles, aunts and grandparents fought and died for America.


OK, so we are going to flag the mental cases on gun sales. Another ripe field for the lawyers: defending your right to remain unidentified.

I would like to thank the two ladies who turned in my purse at Walmart on North Avenue on Feb. 22. When I got home and realized my purse was gone, I panicked. I was really relieved when Walmart said it was turned in.


Being a law-abiding U.S. citizen, I have the right to keep and bear arms. I own firearms because I can. I will use them to protect myself, my family, my friends and yes, even YOU. I am not some tobacco-chewing hick who takes my road kill to the monster truck rally. It’s called freedom.


People gathered recently in a peaceful demonstration to show their right to bear arms as the Constitution proclaims. I commend that but, really, what is all the fuss about? I do not believe the government wants to ban all your guns or take away your right to bear arms. Come on. Bring back some common sense.


Thank you so very much to the kind young man who rescued my red wallet from the cart at the Fruita City Market. You brought it to my home so quickly that I had not even noticed it was missing. So many times all we read about are the unpleasant things. It was a true pleasure to meet you.

Dear GJ BLM: Deer herds were at record numbers in the ‘80s. Elk were at record numbers a few years ago. The public access roads did not hurt herd sizes in the ‘80s and ‘90s, but now they are?


Why would you change North Avenue to University Boulevard when most of the college is on 12th Street heading toward Orchard Avenue?


Let’s begin revamping North Avenue by getting rid of the ugly building between Eastgate and AutoZone. Why is it still there?


The reason we have such a high vacancy rate is because local property owners are competing against the city that has been funding the dormitories at the college with your tax money.


Valentine’s morning I had been at my eye doctor. When I went to leave, my car would not start. An angel came to my door and asked me if he could try getting my car started. He gave me a jump. Thank you ever so much.
