You Said It, Oct. 2, 2011

Thanks a lot to all the do-gooders against Brady Trucking. Now all that land just sits there and people could be working. Please put it up for a vote. I’ll vote for Brady Trucking.

Many tourists who visit the Aspen and Snowmass areas stay down valley in places like Basalt and El Jebel. Is the new tourist information for Basalt going to include “bring your own grocery bags”?

A big, heartfelt thank you to the Western Slope ATV Club and all the other people who came out to help clean up the BLM area off 271/4 Road. It’s so nice to be able to go on trails and not see discarded computers, refrigerators, TVs, cans, bottles, etc.

Bikers should be charged a fee on all bike purchases to be used for their bike lanes, trails, etc. Also they should have to be registered with a license plate-type of ID so that when they don’t follow the laws of the road they can be reported to the police. It would go a long way in eliminating the animosity between cars and bikes.

It seems like every time Native Americans seek a land grab, they mouth the predictable platitude of “sacred” Indian lands. If these “Indian lands” are so sacred, why then do they want to build casinos on them?

Keep “Doonesbury.” It’s one of the most hip and contemporary comics in the paper, and is an equal opportunity satire. Instead, let’s drop the silly “Get Fuzzy” and the repetitious “Family Circus” (so tired of that same old footprint gag) and add “Sally Forth,” another funny and delightful take on modern life.

Don’t you dare get rid of Doonesbury. He’s exactly what the undereducated are afraid of.

Why does The Daily Sentinel publish someone like Rick Wager? His comments are generally ill-informed and exceedingly inflammatory. Halloween is a holiday enjoyed by people of all political persuasions, was originally a religious holiday (All Souls Day) and is not favored by the left wing because it is not a patriotic holiday (implying people of the political left do not love this country). This kind of rhetoric is destroying our country and The Daily Sentinel is participating by publishing this drivel.

Last weekend I attended my granddaughter’s soccer game. At the end of the game, onlookers form a tunnel for the teams to run through. Get this, adults representing the opposing side booed when my granddaughter’s team ran through. They are 5 years old.

Thank you to everyone in the community who participated in the September Western Slope Honor Flight. My grandfather and I were overwhelmed with the community’s response and are eternally grateful. You have no idea how much this meant to him as a WWII veteran.

We were parked by Natural Grocers when we discovered our car wouldn’t start. The two ladies next to us found help at Sportsman’s Warehouse and a very kind young man came right over and used his jumper cables to get our car started. A big hug and thanks to all of them.

A big thank you to Chris at Single Tracks Bike Shop in Fruita, who didn’t laugh and didn’t roll his eyes when two ladies walked in and asked him to fix a flat tire. Thank you for being so friendly and helpful. We finished our ride and it was awesome.
