This letter is to address Stina Sieg’s article on Sunday. What’s the point?

Sundays for me, and as far back as I can remember, was a day to reflect on the blessings in our lives and to give honor to Our Heavenly Father Jehovah God through his Son Jesus Christ!

If you feel so lost on a Sunday, maybe I need to introduce you to the greatest book ever written, the Bible.

As I was reading your article, my heart ached to see that there is such a lost soul out here so close, with no idea what Sunday is all about. How can someone be so lost in the mist of such wonderful creations all around?

If you are lost next Sunday, just walk into one of your local churches, any one of them can show you the reason God created Sunday.

If you need a good book to read next Sunday, why not pick up the word of God and reflect on what it has to say. Sunday was created as the day of worship, so Miss Sieg, I invite you to attend Sunday worship services at any local church.

I will be praying for you and all others that need to know why Sunday was created.

Don’t look now Glenwood Springs, but you have been surrounded.

So as to appear to be actually doing something, your City Council has been busy: when in doubt, build something.

Does phase I, II and III of the Midland Avenue “traffic calming” mean three years of traffic stopping for construction? Add a new hotel and roundabout on 27th Street, a parking garage downtown (can we live there?), throw in a bridge or two, another Highway 6 roundabout, this or that at the Meadows ” whatever suits the developer, of course ” spice this up with some usual summer Grand Avenue repair, pour all of this construction over two massive second-home projects just inside the county, and what do you have?

In the meantime, we can expect the same old housing shortage and lack of day care as Garfield County overpopulates itself into another province of Japan or China.

Best stock up on those cabin air filters for the Lexus and Rover; keep the little ones inside, and may the wealthiest man and woman survive.

The rest should run, because soon there will be nowhere to hide.

I read Eric Olander’s letter in response to John Herbst’s in Sunday’s Glenwood Springs Post Independent. I would like to say to Mr. Herbst that you may be beating a dead horse when it comes to Mr. Olander.

I wouldn’t respond to this man.

There is not doubt he is an intelligent person, but when he calls President Ronald Reagan “Satan’s stoolie” and places him in the same category as Hitler, he lost all credence with me and I would hope all other readers.

Mr. Olander, please do not respond to this letter because from now on I will check the name of the author and if I see it is you, I will skip it.

I do not know who said this first but it certainly applies to you. “When you mix intelligence with a lack of common sense you get a lot of nonsense.”
