Jason's right, folks. Read the writing on the wall. I, too, have a son working at the mine and I fear for him. He and his family do not live extravagantly. He's just trying to earn a living, in this valley, in this economy, and take care of his family, just like so many of us are. I usually have a tendancy to see the glass as half full, but in these times, with this government, it's getting harder and harder to be positive and hopeful. I like my freedoms and I love my country, and I truely believe if the “parts” were allowed to learn from their mistakes and rebuild and regrow, then our country as a “whole” would find its strength and prosperity again. A government controlling us is not what we need. We need to control ourselves and expand our own horizons and lift ourselves up. Our government should facilitate and guide that process, not be a jackboot that stifles it.

I've been in other hospitals in Colorado, California and Arizona, and in virtually every one, there has always been a “Pink Lady” at the reception desk ready to greet and assist, in addition to the receptionist who is there. The receptionist may be the one who answers the phone, and tells you where the department you're looking for is, but it's the Pink Lady who gets you there. These wonderful women have been part of the backbone of customer service in TMH for as long as I've been here. And they've been the sole reception for quite some time now, since the paid position was eliminated as a cost-saving measure. It would be a pity to loose their smiling, helpful faces in the new facility. That wouldn't neccessarily be progress.

Way to go, Jay! The saying goes “neccessity is the mother of invention”…this is how advances are made. Hope it works and does all you think it will.

Just a quick comment here - some folks are having a good time dissin on the LEO's around here, but here's some food for thought: the men wearing the badges are just as upset, disappointed and disillusioned with this turn of events as you are…more so, even, because they trusted this guy and believed he had their backs if needed. Now they wonder if he ever really did, and who the heck he really is. There is no loyalty for this person, he's swingin' in the wind. And if you ever have to dial 911, those same badges will show up to respond to your need, whether you like them or not, regardless of the outcome, because they're here to serve and protect…that's what they swore the oath to do. There are some truely outstanding people working in law enforcement in this valley…don't dismiss them all just because of one —ithead.

Thank you, Bryce. Your column this week is totally appropriate and totally appreciated, no matter what day it is. As a veteran, and coming from a family of veterans, it pleases me to see someone willing to remind us all publicly that no matter what, and in spite of everything, we have it good in this country, and the last sentence in your column tells why. Lest we forget.

Excellent idea, Jason…it's in the perfect location for any- and everyone to see it as they come into Craig. Naming the park after Maj. Adams, to my mind, would be very appropriate - he earned it and he deserves it. The saying goes, “a veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to…America, for an amount of…up to and including my life.” That is Honor. His check was cashed and the change he recieved was the Medal of Honor, the highest award the military can bestow. As far as I know, he is the only recipient to come from this area. A fitting tribute to him, and all veterans from Craig and Moffat county, would be the park, and a memorial plaque that lists them all, living as well as deceased.

Thank you, Terry. Very eloquently put…and so very true-“lest we forget.”

Oldsage: if you think so little of this area, this community and it's people, why the heck do you stay?If we're all so damn dumb, why do you put up with us and continue to interact with us? Wouldn't you be happier if you left… and took your negativity with you?I think we would.
