first of all I have found that I have been basically arguing with little more than teenagers in the past. so I won't begin to tell you how bogus all the reasons for legalizing drugs is. its there to get high on, or for a few to make money off of, no other reasonable use.

yes I am very familiar with the internet, I just read several articles by good respectable doctors, including the inspector general who say that it has no real medical value over whiskey, just higher priced, and God knows we have enough dead children with the booze.

benjie buddy, I was a part of the graduating class of 1965, so I have been around long enough to know what the residents of craig want. believe it or not, they DONT want it to grow and become another grand jct, or Denver. if that's what you want, the solution is simple, MOVE THERE ! or better yet California, you'll love their pot laws.

craig is the same simple little cowtown it was when I was your age, my first date at 16 was at the west theater, I ate lunch at the cosgriff, my mom tended bar at the white horse and managed the restaurant at the cosgriff. I seved on both the sheriff dept, and police dept. I know where everything in town is at.

I don't have to take a number and wait all day to get a licence plate, and it takes me 30 minutes to buy a gallon of milk while I visit with the people I know. why would I care about the revenue gained by growing and selling drugs ? why would you want to change craig ? most of us love it just the way it is. (see election results for proof)

o.k. now that its had the attention and the voters turned it down, lets declare it a dead issue. I figured the moffat county voters were smarter that you thought, marijuana is dope, plain and simple, only a handful of people who stand to profit are ever "for" it.

kudos to the voters.

and that's how it should work when you keep your dollars in the community.

kudos to all involved.


dennis collins 6 months, 3 weeks ago on Brad Goldsmith: Noise ordinance?

there is absolutely something that you can do. call both the sheriff and police chief, remind them that Colorado has a statute that has been on the books forever prohibiting diesel engines from emitting visible smoke.

those pickups have been modified with computer programmers to turn the pumps up and burn more fuel, that's what causes the smoke and the terrible smell. for whatever reason they think its cute, because it "does not" improve the mileage or power, and just pollutes the heck out of the air.

funny side note. I was driving down north ave. in grand junction the other day, apparently with all the young oil workers they have the same problem. one left an intersection just wailing and emmiting dark clouds of really nasty black smoke. there was a big bald headed biker right next to the truck when he did it, the biker chased him down and dragged him out of the truck and just slapped the fire out of the oil worker, got on his bike and rode off. it was a hoot.


dennis collins 7 months ago on Taylor Fredrickson: County jail defies ACLU

oh spare me !

yeah all the cops just have nothing better to do than go around kidnapping innocent people and throwing them in moffat county jail.

mr. Frederickson you are either a very uneducated person, ignorant of the law, or someone who has had some real serious contact with them and a bad taste in your mouth. why don't you ask sheriff Jantz for a tour of the jail and show you, for what and why these folks are being held.

just because "you" don't like it, don't make it wrong. I have known Tim Jantz for more years than I care to remember. one thing I know for certain is that he would " never, ever" keep anyone in jail that don't belong there.

then if you sincerely believe anyone is being held illegally, you can be a model citizen and hire them a lawyer, if they are found not to be held properly, we can tar and feather the sheriff and run him out of town o a rail. how's that work for you ?


dennis collins 7 months, 1 week ago on Taylor Fredrickson: County jail defies ACLU

you have got to be kidding ! jumping the border into America is still illegal, you may not like it, but it is. these people are being held because they are "illegal aliens" so what do you mean "cleared of charges"

part of your problem is that you have never had to keep a county jail operating in an environment of bad economy and taxpayers who don't want to agree to anything that would raise their taxes.

how about this, how about we take all the bad guys out of jail and move them into your neighborhood and move all the illegals into your house. then you can do whatever you want.

some people just don't have a clue. people like tim and whoever steps up to take on this unthankful job when tim leaves, are expected to keep your town and county safe, then you go public as some sort of expert, trying to tell them how to do a job you would never have the courage to take yourself.

why not waste your time trying to get the taxpayers to allot more money to running the sheriff dept. instead of finding fault with dedicated public servants, then maybe the sheriff can stop taking things that help feed the inmates and pay the deputies.

geeze ! you wouldn't think you would have to tell grown ups things like this.

right or wrong ? of course you are right, they are taking up space and eating the jails food. ice definitely needs to be paying for that service.


dennis collins 7 months, 2 weeks ago on Alleged hazing results in no charges against students

o.k. so I never claimed to be the sharpest pencil in the box, but it occurs to me that one cannot be taken to court and convicted until all the evidence is in and the case is finalized, am I accurate ?

so why will the school board get away with firing coaches for something that apparently never happened, before the evidence was in.

I suspect this isn't over. I suspect the schools attorney might better stand by, we might be hearing from a coach.

if my local walgreens owner looked like an escapee from 1965 I wouldn't buy prescription meds from him. why do these drug dealers all find a need to look like haight ashbury hippies, and then cannot understand why no one takes then seriously. it would seem that only drug users seem to want it legalized -- duh ! well, them and greedy townsfolk who think selling drugs is the way to prosperity.
