LETTER: Rodeo officials lying on the radio

I have heard repeatedly on the local radio in recent days advertising for the Cache County Fair and Rodeo indicating that there are “limited amounts of seating available at the rodeo” to ensure community safety so please hurry and buy your tickets.

When I went to the ticket purchasing site I was interested to read the following disclaimer: “By continuing with your purchase you understand that refunds and exchanges are not permitted. You also acknowledge that social distancing of seats is not currently happening. Refunds will only be issued in the occurrence of an overall cancellation by the rodeo committee. Masks are recommended.”

Interesting!

Doesn’t that make us all feel so warm and happy inside to know that people we know and trust have no problem telling absolute lies on the air in hopes of filling an arena.

Pretty sad!!

    This is common to use the phrase “limited amounts of seating available at the rodeo” it is true as they in other years generally sell out.
    This phrase has been used for years and calling someone out as a lair serves no purpose and undermines the truth.
    It is time to calm down, live life and smile. Public shaming serves NO purpose.
    We need truth today more than ever and it has become hard to find.

        “Texting language” and spelling does not exactly make your comments very credible either (especially telling someone else “ur no good @ it”).

        ahhh, such a loving, warm and fuzzy social cut.

    You can mask the rodeo fans, but you can’t mask the blatant animal cruelty. The United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales) outlawed rodeos back in 1934. Can the U.S. be far behind? Rodeo is condemned by EVERY animal welfare organization in North America. Imagine the public outcry were pet dogs similarly abused……What’s the difference, pray?

    Lest we forget, this godawful coronavirus was HUMAN-caused, a direct result of our gross mistreatment and abuse of animals, both wild and domestic. There are connections to be made here, folks.

    This whole scratching each other’s backs in Cache Valley is a mess. The Health Department passes the buck to the local leaders. The County Counsel has made it clear that they think covid-19 is a joke with the comments they have made. Cache County Fair and Rodeo saying they have the support of the Bear River Health Department and the County Counsel. They know exactly what they are doing and they are getting away with it – They are scratching each other’s backs.

    The lie in that radio ad was upsetting to me. Thank you for saying something. It sounds like they have already dropped that part off their ad. thanks to you

      I too noticed that the radio ad had been changed just hours after this post. Perhaps they felt some guilt??

      Just to let you know, this is not Logan City. It is Cache County. You need some truth and facts with your shaming.

    I understand the animal cruelty concern, and I used to be and still somewhat am concerned with it myself. But I have gone and asked the owner of the stock including the Cavs sheep and horses, all of which or treated with amazing care way above the standard. When they are not in the rodeo, they are being taken well care of. It’s not as bad as you think, and there is a culture behind it, which of course without having lived in it is hard to understand. I have not but I have experienced it firsthand and took an ethnographic approach and that’s what I found. How can any of us be blamed for what we believe concerning anything from Covid to the next president to whatever, when everything in this world is bullshit for lack of a better term you can’t believe anything especially in politics. “During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act“ -E.B.
