Re: “Amanda's Fonda

Found it by accident on a real estate buying trip, ended up living here. Having lived for over 50 years in CA and eaten 5-star Mexican food, I give Amandas a 4. Good, but not excellent. Was disappointed when we first went there that there was no carnitas! How can you have a Mexican restaurant without pork? However, the rest of the menu was decent, I'd say 3-stars.

Well, sometines good things happen. Amandas now has carnitas, and decent carnitas at that, my rating is now a 4. If they want a fifth star, they need to begin making their own chips, serve them warm and improve the dipping salsa. prices are reasonable, booze is tasty, good margaritas. Parking on weekends is horrible. Outdoor dining next to the creek a plus, if you can avoid the T-storms.

Re: “Hallmark moments: Get Low

Nine paragraphs to say I didn't like it? Must be paid by the word. Be honest, how many knew what a Dobro was, I'll confess I had to look it up. So, I guess I learned something in addition to the fact that the reviewer did not like the film. At least I think he didn't like it. There is nothing like clarity in the written word.

Re: “Just the beginning

I've read with interest Mr. Lane's reporting on this issue and by e-mail have encouraged him to follow-up. First the subordinate lies. Now his boss is covering. How about a county board hearing? Put them both under oath and ask some simple questions. This clown Gardner even refuses to give his age! Something is rotten at the clerk/recorder's office.

Larry Liston & Douglas Bruce. Two sides of a counterfeit coin.

Re: “One reason for all to celebrate

As a recent (2 1/2 years ago) transplant from that evil domain most native Coloradians call the Peoples Republic of California, I too was over-joyed to see Doug Bruce defeated. However, did anyone notice the percentages? Yes he was beaten, but not by much. That tells me his brand of search and destroy politics is alive and well in the minds of his supporters.Judging from the size of his ego and level of his narcissism he will be back. He is one of those people who can never go away. I'm a registered Democrat but not a rabid liberal and have in my day voted for Republicans even if I did mark the ballot with my left hand. Bruce is also a California transplant from the 1970's proposition 13 Howard Jarvis days. That little ballot item caused more trouble in California than all the fires, earthquaks and mudslides together. I strongly urge voters to visit California and see if you like what you see. If you do then vote for the people like Bruce who caused it. Colorado is a beautiful place, like California was. Do not make the mistakes we did. As old Ben Franklin said taxes are inevitable and will always rise, the trick is to spend that money wisely. People like Bruce want to march society backwards. I for one, think that is the height of ignorance.
