Why does it matter if he is in the army? Its the few bad apples that give the rest a bad name. Plenty of "non military" people doing the same crap. Its just easy to group military and point the finger.
I agree with Craig, the food scene here does suck. Looking forward to all the offerings over at Ivywild.
It is so refreshing to have information reported on the locations and extent of the fires. Maketa is on top of this fire! The reports on this fire are a vast improvement from what the "officials" wouldn't tell us during the Waldo fire.
I was evacuated during the Waldo fire and I could get no information about the fire location, boundaries, homes impacted, etc. I hope the people in charge have learned that if you keep people in a vacuum, the void will be filled with something. Bach, Forte, Marr, et. al., are you observing and learning?
If you don't want an assault rifle, don't buy one. I don't want tofu, but it doesn't mean you can't by it.
The best thing assault rifles is keeping the IRS and TSA at bay when Obama sends them after us.
I am not Cynthia Burbach.
You are a moron.
However, I did get quite a laugh out of your rant and your mistaken conjecture as to my identity.
I am an individual who does has 100% direct knowledge of the entire situation and has all the names of all of the intelligent people I mentioned in my prior post, who also have more knowledge than you do about the situation and Ms. Burbach.
Thank you for posting your ignorant and misguided comments.
It is refreshing to know that that you come from a lower intelligence level, so we should not expect intelligent posts by you.
While KDVR posted libelous statements regarding the report that they linked in their article, at least they have several intelligent posters on that site, who know what they are talking about.
When are the NRA nuts going to get a clue- WE DON'T WANT ASSAULT RIFLES OR AMMO ROUNDS SOLD IN THIS COUNTRY- your article was great, and to the point.
I can't wait to go back and have all the memories of my years spent there come flooding back to my mind. Mrs. Lane (Eggleston) IS Ivywild Elementary. Both of my siblings and myself attended Ivywild from the late 80's into the 90's. There is still a tile that I made in an art class taught by Mrs. Lane-Eggleston on a wall of the old school turned brewery, along with many others that students of Ivywild made. Those tiles still being there as the school is transformed reassures me just how much this school has meant and still means to so many people!
Robert...last year, none of the donated money went to fire victims, it was totally absorbed by administration making rules to make it so hard to get the support that no one got it.
Colorado Springs employees, ESCAPE!
I shake my head and wonder why an article like this has to be written about evacuating due to a forest fire. How is that GD dumb? A list of what to take with you includes money clothes food....really?? Take money? Other websites have people volunteering to store horses! If you own horses you have a lot of money unless you are super stupid. So, take the burden off the insurance companies that have collected money for years and donate so that State Farm et al can keep the cash they charged homeowners. Such nice folks we have around here that they would help insurance companies in their time of need... "GI Joe Pork chop sandwiches" is a youtube search term for you to use
Good fire coverage on the Denver Post web site, apparently they have a reporter on staff, in contrast to the Gazette that simply has someone with scanner sitting in an office downtown.
they still know how the Waldo Canyon fire started...
The sky sox stadium idea represents the kind of vision we do not have but desperately need. The "obscure real estate" mentioned by one commenter is Colorado Springs LODO waiting and wanting to happen as soon as we develop some community courage and vision. Were there conservative naysayers 20 years ago in Denver talking about the ridiculous idea of developing DT Denver's run-down north end? Did an enlightened City do the right thing there? Did development of Denver's LODO create jobs and a vibrant city? Were there challenges to overcome that were worth overcoming? Yes, yes, yes, and yes.
"...the National League of Cities put out a report saying we've had six straight years of revenue decline," Gilroy adds. "Local governments are still reeling from the impacts from the recession. That always prompts governments to start looking at alternatives, such as going to the private sector."
"Going to the private sector" is no panacea, nor should it be the first/only alternative. Mayor Botch has tried no alternatives, he just jumped into bed with SERCO.
When your "strong mayor" comes into office backed by billionaires whose intent is to destroy as much of government as they can, at all levels, the intent soon becomes clear. Just about every bit of COLO SPGS government will be sold off or contracted out before we can get this maniac out of city hall. I warned about this.
Doesn't matter whether you hate or like Doug Bruce -- the man has a constitutional right to be heard on the issues. Deny that right and you show your lack of understanding of this nation's founding principles. On this one, I think he makes a lot of sense.
What do they fear and why?

The letter from the NAACP Colorado president is shockingly absurd. The fact is, since the first no-excuse mail ballot in 1994 no colorado secretary of state nor any county clerk has ever sent mail ballots to inactive-failed to vote voters because the law always prevented it. Gessler pressed for statewide uniformity so Denver's election processes are the same as El Paso's process.
Also, not one overseas ballot was prevented from being mailed. This claim is totally false.
Evers taught us that every vote is precious and shouldn't be cancelled out by an ineligible vote. Unfortunately, this letter is designed to simply take a swipe at Gessler which does a disservice to the public.
More taxpayer money, down the toilet. If El Paso County harrassed its constituents with costly and needless "security," the commissioners would be recalled.
