Re: “Pet project

Yeah, y'all got me yesterday! I thought this was true and reposted it on FB. After I did that, I realized, "Hey, how in the world could you have a cat park without some sort of netting at the top or something? Cats aren't going to stay in a park!" I'm 53 years old and still gullible. I'm not stupid, but gullible I am sometimes! It was a great April Fool's joke I have to admit! I laughed at myself for 10 minutes! Well played, Independent, well played.

Re: “Gazette: concerns beyond pot

Yes, we know the author of the Gazette's propaganda, Christine Tatum, as a prohibitionist shill for the drug treatment industry -- her husband is anti-cannabis crusader Christian Thurstone.

Re: “Klingenschmitt manages to anger his own party

Mr. Hughes:

As subjective and personal opinion, I would have to state that he did not fail to execute the duties of his elected position. Anymore than Helen Collins appears not to have failed in her duties. But none-the-less, sufficient numbers seem to think that she needs to be recalled and this will be decided by the voters she represents - as will the case of Mr. Klingenschmitt. Technically, he may not be guilty of a 'recall offense' but has his action created perception and images for the region that are detrimental to the need to find jobs in the region and has he lessened the numbers of companies who might consider COS as a potential location? That to me would be sufficient reason for there to be an effort mounted to see that he is removed from office. Hiding under the little Mary Poppins Umbrella that the region suffers from an image problem might be an attitude that bears closer examination. Thank you.

Re: “Klingenschmitt manages to anger his own party

Staci6,

Did he misuse his elected position? Did he fail to execute the duties of his elected position? If not, then there is no reason to recall him -- you are just recalling him because you don't like him.

"if not now, when?"

When they actually do something wrong. Punishing someone for having a different opinion or for exercising their freedom of speech is a bad thing to do. Again, the most correct course of action is to use our own freedom of speech to counter his.

Re: “Here, kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty ...

A true apocalypse "dogs and cats living together", free range and all that stuff. Its the end of times. Where is Gordon Klingenschimdtt when we need him? But who are you going to call? Yes, its time to elect Bill Murray to the City Council.

Re: “Suthers survives a 'constitutional challenge'

Got the robo call the other day, some gravelly-voiced madman shouting his hate at me. Of course I hit delete soon after it started. Have voted for Makepeace.

Re: “Klingenschmitt manages to anger his own party

Homophobes here knowingly voted for this terrible man who's resumed making our city a national joke. How many more corporations just put us on the no-no list for a relocation? City for Champions? Hardly. We're the City for Chumpions. Kiss goodbye the Mayor's hopes for 6000 new jobs per year. Good grief.

Re: “The big dogs' big money

Translation: We're getting the same old crowd of insiders fronted by same cabal of local monied interests. In other words, BOHICA (Bend Over Here It Comes Again).
Vote for Makepeace, not the career pol. The Struthers crowd talks about moving the city forward, but they've no plan and cannot do a thing as long as Tabor rules.

Re: “Get in on power plan

Any plan for future power generation in this city should include consideration of the new GE gas turbine system where a single unit can power 400,000 homes. Story:
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/201…

We've a wealth of natural gas here in the Intermountain West but are pipeline constrained at getting it out of this region and into populous eastern and coastal cities where it's needed. There is potential for this turbine system to replace Drake while using clean burning local natural gas from wells here in Colorado.

Re: “Klingenschmitt manages to anger his own party

Sure, Klingenschmitt is entitled to his own views. But because he's an adult, he has to face the consequences of expressing those views. In other words: Yes, he has the right to speak his mind; no, he does *not* have the right to escape the impact of that speech on his political aspirations.

gregR,

Polar ice caps dwindle and grow - global sea ice is unalarmingly above normal.
Your 97% figure is debunked as thoroughly as the hockey stick.
Ironically, you are making Mr Warks point for him.

Re: “Here, kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty ...

Finally! I've heard rumors about what was happening at America the Beautiful, and I am so glad that our city has decided to support its feline-loving citizens. This is almost better than City for Champions!

Re: “Klingenschmitt manages to anger his own party

Why is it that most of the local elected officials are either bought and paid for by big money or are religious freaks? when are people going to start to pay attention and vote for people that will work for their needs. this moron is free to say whatever he wants to... he is not free from receiving a well deserved brutal backlash for his statements. what morons voted for this fringe freak?
