This letter is in response to Mr. O"Banion's letter from suburban Portland (Gales Creek). Mr. O'Banion had a long list of complaints about the CJD rodeo. I thought the rodeo was wonderful. I hope the organizers and many volunteers do not change a thing. The patriotism and incredible skill of the boys/girls men/women participants made the Saturday night show just perfect. As I sat in the stands watching it all unfold I felt so grateful to live in our great nation and our great county. I thought to myself that there was not anywhere else in the world I'd rather be at that moment than at the CJD rodeo on a Saturday night in Joseph. Wow! What a blessing to be able to openly honor God, our nation, our flag, our veterans and the native Americans who live in this blessed place before any of us currently living. Don't change a thing at the rodeo!!! God, country, and horses in the shadow of the mountains on a gorgeous summer night!!
