You Said It, May 19, 2013
What an awesome story for the front page, Mr. Ed Reed Jr. getting his honorary diploma. You are a true American hero along with all those others who served alongside you, some giving the ultimate sacrifice. You are the Greatest Generation.
Thank you to the person or persons who planted grass on my wife’s grave at the Mesa-Molina Cemetery.
Grand Junction residents missed a great baseball game last Sunday at Suplizio Field. It’s a shame our community does not support its local college team for the RMAC Championship. It’s just as good as JUCO.
It’s that time of year again when you “animal lovers” throw your dogs in the back of a pickup with no protection whatsoever. Dogs will jump out. I was two vehicles behind one on 6&50 and had to witness one being hit and killed. If you care for your pets, put up protective sides so they are safe. Otherwise, let them stay inside with you.
The Artist’s Haven located on Second and North is offering cold water to each person involved in an accident in front of our store, however, we think this is a drastic way to get water! Please slow down on this stretch of North Avenue. We have only been here five months and have seen at least 10 cars smashed.
It was quite a disappointment to visit the new Lincoln Park play area only to find that by 11 a.m. the slides and climbing rocks were already too hot to play on. When will the city realize they need to include shade coverings on our parks to prevent children from being burned?
Driver’s Ed 101: If you are merging into traffic (as in I-70, the Biz Loop, Riverside Parkway, etc.) please remember that those of us already on that road have the right of way. We are not required to slow down or move over for you.
Great job, overlay crew on 30 Road near Orchard Avenue. You leveled that manhole cover I always had to dodge. Also kudos to the striping crew for the excellent work on the Interstate and Business Loop.
Thank you, thank you to the lady who helped my daughter when the pit bull attacked her and her dog. I am so grateful for your kindness and quick thinking!
Finally a kernel of truth and transparency coming from a commissioner. Rose Pugliese laments that “the people have no concept of what we do every day.” It’s not surprising when everyday deliberations are suppressed and whispered to the extent that the Navajo codetalkers would be impressed.
I don’t understand. We are asked to conserve water. Yet, with all of the good rains we have had recently, sprinklers are going full force, even sometimes during the rain. Am I to understand that automatic timers are uncontrollable, or am I missing something?
As a lifelong member of the NRA I fully respect your right to not bear arms. I would never think of forcing you to do so against your will. If only you would respect my right to bear arms. Remember, respect is a two-way street.
To the individual who fears the NRA is endangering their right to not bear arms, and is trying to force him or her to live in the 19th century: Not from the NRA, nor any allied group has there ever been any hint of pressure to force anyone to purchase a firearm, or live in any particular time period. However, people of his or her mind-set are clearly determined to deprive all others of the right and the means to defend themselves.
Whitewater Cemetery Association is so very grateful for all of the assistance from community businesses for helping us get the cemetery ready for Memorial Day and general maintenance. Our thanks to VFW Post 4663 for a donation of two new flags, Orchard Mesa True Value Hardware for their assistance with paint and primer for the storage shed, SSD Plastics for a large piece of special Plexiglass for our veterans sign, and not to forget Anthony DiGrado Painting for assistance in repainting the cemetery signs white and clean again.
