Ute Chief is privately owned and they don't think it's important to keep it running.
Would someone please tell me what all her ribbons are for...and are those flight wings?
Is she a General Officer because she had led troops in combat, or because she fills the women quota?
Can she do a hundred pushups?
bach's female parts are hurting again..... I cant wait to get king nothing out of office....
sounds fun & gorgeous!
re. the pump: maybe the city needs funding? u could do a crowdfunding site fundraiser like kickstarter or indiegogo... people often raise $30,000 or more with those.
What is Bach's deal? The guy hadn't even had the post for a month and then does this. I can understand you want a relationship with Alaska Airlines but to go straight for the firing and not a suspension or even a reprimand just makes Mayor Bach look like an ass. To those who did vote Bach in, you made the sandwich now you got to eat it.
More than a year ago, the Ute Chief spring was somehow shut off. I had witnessed several folks from out of state that traveled all that way to get this water, which they claimed cured maladies that had been incurable. I had approached the Manatou operatives several times to ask why the spring was not functioning, and consistently got the runaround. Allegedly a pump(?) needed to be replaced. I have never heard of a spring that needed a pump, but I am not a licensed hydrologist.
It being the only spring that is naturally effervescent, and apparently has some secret healing properties, again, I ask why, this magnificent spring with a beautiful sculpture included is not functioning?
Perhaps the power of the press can get some answers??
If Mayor Bach and Director Gallagher were trying to save face with Alaskan Airlines all they had to do was reprimand Culpepper. Now the city as a whole looks even worse.
Frankly, this is ridiculous. If a person is working for the council they need to completely work for the council and not for the mayor. This strong-arm tactic from the Mayor against the council is unacceptable and warrants another look at the Strong-Mayor system. Some Charter amendments are in order.
yeah right...lets see who the Realtor Association endorses in the next election...
Now thats Cool!!!!!
Needbe...who is needed in your definition?
These are people, a whole sub-culture, who are part of our larger community and deserve our humane consideration.
Do unto others...
Yes, the mayor is a two-bit tyrant, but let's be honest-the homeless generally aren't needed among the general population. Why not create a free camp for them to stay in south of town. Restaurants can drop off leftover food. They can pee wherever they want and live in tents. Free rent and food and they don't bother everybody else.
The Democrats are so desperate to get someone elected, they are are willing to run a Republican. Are they seriously nominating someone who has only been a registered Democrat since February? I have come to the conclusion that there is no progressive/liberal party in El Paso County.
The homeless themselves have lots of good ideas...has the mayor engaged any of them.
The nearness of downtown makes the St Francis idea something that warrants some thought.
The old gazette building could be used for storage for the homeless...this is a big problem for them actually.
I have always wanted to be part of a project that would turn the old Penrose St. Francis building in to a facility that would house the many homeless seniors on te street as well as a central location for nonprofits that are here to help those in need. One stop shopping instead of taking the bus all over town.
"I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed." Genesis 12:3.
Those so-called evangelicals who say Jews are cursed are calling down the curse of heaven on their own heads.
As a Unitarian,I find Evangelicals totally disgusting and agents of Adolph Hitler. They told me that the Jews are the cursed people of the world. I literally hate Evangelicals and have much more tolerance for Buddhists,Muslims,Jews,Mormons,Catholics and mainstream Protestants. Evangelicals,CLEAN UP YOUT FILTHY ACT!!!
So proud to see you in the indy! I wish I could come support you tomorrow but I have to work. Just know there are so many of us who have your back and are very thankful for your vocal and powerful activism!
Sooooo they have money for Pay to Park signs, but not enough money to install and maintain basic parking and one way signs? This town government has shown its true colors. It is only interested in extracting money from tourists and has no concern for public safety. If you're a local lawyer and would like me to point out their legal deficiencies in hopes you can make a difference or at least some money for victims, please feel to email me at overcomefear@gmailcom
Who, other than the mayor, property owner, and developers, is NOT stunned by the C4C decision? The 2 parts of C4C that the proponents are salivating to build are the stadium/museum complex downtown, which is the only reason the other 2 are included. The spin is that the complex will bring in hordes of new out-of-state tourists who will spend dollars and this new revenue and the sales tax on it will bring economic prosperity to COS. This, they say, plus $120M of our sales tax that will be "rebated" by the state over 30 years, will pay for the bonds to be issued to build the stadium/museum complex. Sounds good - sounds free - doesn't it? If it sounds too good to be true . . .
STIF (sales tax incremental financing) is the funding tool. 100% of STIF to be collected within 90% of COS geographic area will go towards payments on the bonds to be issued. (Note: Issuing these bonds does not require a vote of the taxpayers.) The C4C proposal has declared that ALL increase in sales revenue over the next 30 years will be due to new out-of-state tourists and their spending. However, it is impossible to determine if a retail sale within the 90% STIF area is to an out-of-state tourist or to a local resident. And, using 100% of STIF to pay down the bonds results in no new sales tax revenue for the city. How is COS to pay for its many truly necessary and urgent needs, needs which will require new taxes? Gotta hand it to govt. They've found a way to tax citizens to build a stadium without violating TABOR - our state constitutional protection which requires a vote of the citizens before new taxes can be imposed. Expect STIF to become the new norm for circumventing the will of the people.
