Great link, Staci
This election is big for Colorado Springs! A lot of seats up for election this year. Obviously one group is trying to buy this election! Don't be a sheep and just vote for (R) or (D) know who you are voting for and why. Do you want a council that is in the back pocket of big money, to do as they like to this city? I'm 100% sure some of this $$ is to insure that the Utilitie boad can be hand picked. Why? To make sure Anschutz get his land. strawberry fields, emeral valley, and soon to come Rosemont reservoir.
Mr. Stein and Ms. Zubeck have done an excellent job in tracking the money in the city council election - When one 'blows away the smoke' the amount of dollars who is getting from whom makes an interesting visual. Check it out.
This is a spot on analysis. Richard gets my vote. I used to write for a newspaper called The Bottom of the Bird Cage. As owned by Anschutz, the Gazette has become my chief contender for that location.
I am calling on John Suthers to admit publicly that he was mistaken when he repeatedly claimed that the land swap was good for the community. Why has the Mayor refused to respond to yet another email that I sent to his office just this week? The City cannot accept the appraisal that the Broadmoor submitted for that deal. You can see my most recent email that the Mayor has ignored at the Facebook page I manage COS Land Swap. The questions and facts in that email are legal questions and cannot be ignored by the City.
Wonderful- Suthers Park!! He worked hard for it so he should have the credit. Let's start a petition to name it that. I will gladly donate the ribbon and scissors for the opening ceremony, as well as a plaque for his name. I will also provide a photographer to memorialize the momentous occasion. I assume the parks department has plans to update the abandoned structure (Suthers Hall ) on the property where we can hold his reception.
Long may Suthers Park be free and open to the public! This is a brilliant piece of work.
Thank you for printing this! Satire is one of the truest art forms, and this letter is brilliant. Suthers Park has such a nice ring to it, and will preserve his legacy in perpetuity!
Want to read an erotica/ fiction ebook by a local lesbian author set in Colorado Springs? Check out "Adventures of a GWF REBORN" on amazon. I really think our local LGBT would enjoy it highly to read about being gay in the 90's in CS back in the day!
Way to call it! Thank you Pam and the Independent for another example of fine investigative journalism. It's sad that you have to waste time investigating the path of other journalists (Cora request tracking) who copy your work without giving credit where it was due.)
I'm curious as to how much drive training they get prior to the test? It didn't specify, just that it was inaccurate. The whole trainer flying the drone thing should raise some eyebrows within the police hierarchy.
Summer Camp is so important, it gets kids outside and away from their screens. Yet, as parents, we all want to be sure our kids are safe. Any camp you select especially Overnight Camps should be accredited by the ACA, they check over 300 camp items. I know I own Swift Nature Camp http://swiftnaturecamp.com
Solar Minimum started in May 2016, Al Gore will "Chill Out" !
No other choice.
CSF hired homophobe Amy Lathen as their voice. All their candidates are spouting the same crap. I smell 1992...No companies moving here because of their backward thinking. Fowler screwed his neighbors after the Waldo fire, through the HOA board. Crow is government welfare queen, drug tests government employees. Never gonna have legal pot with her around.
So you know she bought educational materials but that isn't good enough.

The GOP uses Springs Forward and pays other 'activists' to work their agenda locally. The local developers and Oil companies want their hands on decisions about our utility company. There are development opportunities for In fill and revitalization and these folks want to give themselves subsidizes to do it.
I think Jill and Richard will help this town.
"If equipment (uniforms, guns, tasers and body armor) is factored in, one recruit guessed the bill at about $200,000."
Do the recruits get to take their gun, taser, and body armor with them when they leave? I doubt it, so just sensationalizing for reaction?
To me, it is incredibly scary and sickening that so many candidates are in bed with Developers. After all, it was the CITY along with their financial backers (Developers) who KNOWINGLY ALLOWED HOUSES TO BE BUILT ON A LANDSLIDE! And to make matters worse, are now planning to build a LOW INCOME housing project in the very same area; so that properties in Broadmoor bluffs will lose ALL of their value!!!
Who do you think will win in each district - and what importance do endorsements have on your decision on issues and/or candidates? A three minute quick -poll. Thank you
This is one of the first times I've done my research on my candidates before reading endorsements. I'll be interested to see how my opinion will be swayed between now and when I submit my ballot.
