Oak Creek garbage

Yes, come one and come all, this is an exciting time in Oak Creek, come view the fall garbage foliage collection before the snow covers it all and code enforcement wakes up from her long summer nap. It’s a beautiful, beautiful thing to view, the garbage changing colors on the streets of Oak Creek. It’s a beautiful thing to view.

Volleyball coverage

I just wanted to register my complaint about the coverage of high school volleyball activities. They’ve had five or six matches now, I think, and no coverage at all on the five matches they played on the weekend that I can find, and they have a match tonight, Tuesday night, and no coverage in the paper about this pending game and no notice it all that’s its going to occur and its against Moffat County. It seems to me that we need to be more diligent about giving results and about notifying people when these games are coming up.

Euzoa’s rights

The residents of Strawberry Park have a right to dislike fundamentalists or evangelical Christians and have the freedom to say any negative thing they choose about them, however they do not have a right to deny the Euzoa congregation freedom of assembly or freedom to practice their religion. The effort to run Euzoa Bible Church out of Strawberry Park is discrimination, plain and simple. Euzoa Bible Church harms no one. A few don’t agree with their ideology and seek to pervert their rights. A few don’t want any Christian church in their back yard.

Oak Creek fun

I wanted to give kudos to the Oak Creek Public Works Department for the fun new game us bored Oak Creekers down here. There’s these day-glow orange squares around the big pot holes on the streets of town and it’s really fun because you get to swerve all around them whether you’re coming up or down the street — hopefully not two cars at the same time. But its so much fun to swerve around these big day-glow squares. So come on down and have some fun on the streets of Oak Creek with us, just remember to drive sober because it looks like you’re not when you’re driving erratically.

Inappropriate mention

Your article on Stan Kroenke and Michael Staenberg was an outstanding article Sunday, however, it was inappropriate to mention who Stan Kroenke was married to.
