Speak Up for Feb. 21

Editor’s note: Comments to Speak Up in recent days touched on both local and national concerns. Here’s what’s been on the minds of local residents. The first is a reaction to the story of Vice President Dick Cheney’s accidental shooting of a hunting partner in Texas.

Media unfair to Cheney

In the recent mishap of the hunting accident with Vice President Cheney, it wouldn’t make any difference how fast he’d reported it or what he’d say, most of the media would criticize him like they criticize him for anything he says or does. If I was him, I wouldn’t give them the time of day.

Note: Other commentary offered opinions on traffic and fuel prices.

Use truck route

I think we’re going to have a tragic accident in Craig with the coal trucks turning off Victory Way onto Yampa Avenue. I wonder why they don’t use the truck route rather than coming down the center of town. When trucks are coming off Victory Way, they’re loaded, and there is more concern for accidents because it’s harder for them to stop.

Hello again fuel sellers

It seems that your price tag for unleaded gas is stuck on $2.39. That was nice when it was first lowered and great when you were the lowest in the area. But it seems that you have not noticed that gas in the surrounding areas of Steamboat Springs, Hayden, Meeker and Kremmling has gone down again, and our prices here are a gouging 15 cents higher.

What is it going to take to make your greed go away? People of Craig, how about a little old-fashioned boycott of the local gas retailers?

This is getting old, and it is still annoying.

It is not that much of a privilege to live here with greedy local retailers.
