You Said It, Oct. 13, 2013

To the blonde female driver of the black truck impatiently tailgating and irritably gesturing to my 17-year-old daughter in her blue Honda Accord on U.S. Highway 50 near 29 Road around noon on Oct. 4: You almost cost her her life. How you were able to fluster her, cause that harrowing accident and then drive on your inconvenienced way without even stopping is beyond my understanding. Thank God she and the other family involved survived.

What gives the government the right to shut down national monuments and parks? All that belongs to the people of the United States of America, I thought. But I guess this isn’t a free country anymore.


I want to thank the Sentinel for the wonderful stories and articles about suicide in your recent newspapers. If you saved one life or helped one family, I commend you. I hope we are all better people and more aware of what sadness families go through during this hard time. Thank you.


Recently I misplaced my “Just For U” card and couldn’t use the computer to enter products that I needed. The cashier at Safeway on Horizon Drive called for someone who could help with that. To my surprise the manager came to answer that request. He was very patient and kind to help me with the process. I had never met him personally, but he has always spoken to me and has ably assisted me with help and answers. That means a lot.


The recent government shutdown debacle only underscores how out of touch our current elected officials are with the general public. If you don’t vote all these folks out of office at the next earliest opportunity, you only have yourself to blame.


My wife and I and the couple that were with us on Sept. 30 at the Village Inn on Horizon would like to thank the person or persons that paid for all of our meals that morning. It was a big surprise to us and we were very thankful for the wonderful gesture. Thank you very much.


A great big “thank you” to Joe, Stacey and Banjo for coming to our rescue Sept. 30 on Grand Mesa. Your help in getting my friend and me back to our car is very much appreciated. We will pass your good deed on.


To the woman who ran the red light at Broadway and Monument Road and hit my daughter on her bike Sept. 24 — karma. You ran the red light, hit her, hurt her and left the scene. Were you late for a DUI hearing? No insurance? Driving under the influence? No license? You’re lucky you didn’t kill her. I can’t believe someone would hurt another human being and just drive away.


Many thanks to Dwayne Dilley for finding and returning my mother’s purse on Sunday after she drove away with it on her car and lost it, and for refusing to take a cash reward. You are an angel. You will never know how important your good deed was to our family. Your honesty and trust are to be admired. You turned a tragic Sunday morning into a Sunday morning blessing.


Thank you to the person or persons who paid for my meal at No Coast Sushi on Sept. 30. Your generosity really touched me and made my day. Be assured I will pay it forward.


Thank you so much to the two gentlemen who helped change my flat tire in the Albertsons parking lot. It was very kind of them and very much appreciated. And by pure coincidence, one was an acquaintance from 25 years ago!
