I was happy to see that a reader noticed Dave Hotz’s name was missing from The Times-Independent’s annual list of departed folks in 2019.
I want to thank Back of Beyond Books for organizing the Books for Tots program over the holidays. What a special gift to come back from the break to a big box of beautiful, new books.
I hope everyone enjoyed the past holiday season as much as I did. It has taken me four years of retirement to finally get used to the idea that taking care of the traveling public in Grand County was no longer my responsibility.
In November of 2019, after nine years as Grand County Justice Court judge, I was required by state law to leave the bench as I had turned 75 years old.
I believe these Grand County Council members should be removed immediately from office now for not knowing how to manage our money and the misuse of funds they don’t have!
I participated in the Jeep Jamboree in October. On one of the trails near Kane Creek, I lost my college ring. Ms. Tibbetts found it weeks later while on a cattle drive. She reached out to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University who in turn contacted me. She refused a finders fee or paid shipping from me and simply offered me a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
The Donkeys are blowing it. With the continuing impeachment carnival, all they are doing is giving the Elephants reasons to make sure the Trump brain-dead base has no reason to wake up. You want to give Trump the best chance at re-election, just keep it up.
The cost is $69 compared to $600. That’s the difference between flying to Salt Lake on Boutique Air and flying to Salt Lake with the current airline chosen by our airport board a few years ago.
Every year I go to Center and Main to watch Moab’s Electric Light Parade.
None of us like having to pay more taxes, but we need to support the new proposed tax increases. In hindsight, past Grand County councils should have made small increases each year to keep up with inflation.
This is in response to the Nov. 28 opinion piece by those two darned professors about confronting climate change. To be frank, what it all boils down to is that we privileged white males – whom God has chosen to rule the planet – are being asked by 16-year-old Greta Thunberg to admit we might have made mistakes!
Moab Solutions is pleased to announce that two new board members have joined the organization, while three have departed.
