You Said It, Aug. 21, 2011
Renaming Mount Sopris or any part of this spectacular mountain area to “John Denver Mountain” is a repulsive idea. The Daily Sentinel article of Aug. 8 cited “all of his environmental work” but seems to have overlooked the three gas tanks he buried in his Aspen backyard during the 1970s gasoline shortage.
Talk about a sore loser. Let’s all show Mr. Maes what we think of his book — don’t buy it.
A heartfelt thanks to the couple who rescued and cared for our family cat who was taken from his home in Fruitvale and dumped 15 miles away near 23 1/2 and K roads. Their ad in the Sentinel got him home to his grateful family. One very lucky kitty.
Clifton has its own Greenbelt. Just drive behind the Peach Tree Shopping Center and observe the beautiful forest (weeds).
Grasshopper alert: North of H Road the grasshoppers are taking over. I live around 23 and I roads and I have thousands of them. I heard years ago they brought in quail to eat those pesky little vegetarians. What to do? Quit shooting the quail.
Whoever stole my laptop Tuesday morning out of my home: It is of no use to you, yet I am lost without it.
Thank you, thank you to everyone in the audience at the Grand Mesa Chorus Sweet Adelines Concert on July 16. Your enthusiasm and appreciation swept over us on the stage in such a huge wave of energy. What a wonderful sisterhood is the Sweet Adelines organization and what a wonderful community is Grand Junction.
I have attended several events this year only to find that some folks only come to visit with others. They show no respect for the performance and certainly none to those who come to enjoy the event. So why don’t they just stay home?
A big, big thanks to the one who saw me lying face down on the sidewalk along Patterson Road and called 911. I can never thank you enough.
Attention: If you are over the age of 10, turn your baseball cap around so the bill is in front. You look like an idiot.
To the young couple who held their wedding ceremony in Wingate Park this summer: Thank you for the nice end to a Saturday afternoon. Congratulations.
You’re out enjoying the beauty of nature, then you spot something white on the ground. It’s toilet paper and it’s everywhere. It’s disgusting. People, please pick up your TP. You carried it in; now carry it out.
Don’t ever get rid of the You Said It column. I find it highly entertaining and look forward to it. If people don’t like it, they shouldn’t read it.
