Re: “'John-shaming,' voter turnout, Helen Collins, and more

"In actual fact, we are the only town in Colorado that has not enjoyed a healthy recovery since the recession." - Really? Uber-liberal Pueblo has experienced far more sluggish growth than the Springs, or do you ignore realities that don't fit your prejudicial narrative?

I understand that you're desperately trying to smear the Anschutz family and the local daily in one fell swoop, but "in actual fact", Suthers received twice as many votes as Ms. Makepeace, making him the obvious choice for mayoral office, irregardless of any media support.

"There is nothing subtle about his influence in this town, from the invasion into Bear Creek Park" - Care to elaborate?

Re: “UPDATE: Arrest warrant issued for Bruce in Ohio

WHY ARE CITY GOVERNMENTS ALWAYS PICKING ON BRUCE??? Maybe if he was a model citizen like the rest of us folks who pay our property taxes and spend our hard earned money to keep our homes and properties in good condition- HAVING COLORADO SPRINGS PRIDE- instead of his self-centered, selfish ways, then maybe he wouldn't be in such legal troubles. I have NO sympathy for this man.

Re: “Ban on conversion therapy dies in Colorado

I spent my teens and 20's desperately involved in "conversion therapy." I was a true believer. At 31, I had a girlfriend...but there I was, taking the elevator to the top of the Empire State Building and thinking the unthinkable. I just didn't see a way out. My truth was abominable to the Church and shameful to my family should they ever find out... While it's often called "reparative therapy," it almost destroyed me.

Re: “Good news, bad news in No Man's Land

I first came to live in Manitou in 1975, the roads are in the worst shape I have ever seen. They are extremely dangerous to anyone on a bicycle or motorcycle and will do damage to your car if you drive in the regular lane paths which are riddled with unending potholes. 100% of this decay has occurred under the watch of Mayor Marc Snyder and an incompetent department head Bruno. It has not been a severe winter or any extraordinary weather event that has caused this issue. Just poor planning by those two pathetic leaders. Manitou's street department should be fixing potholes 24/7 to make the roads SAFE ... just SAFE , but they are not on the job. Instead WE will be filled with excuses and no action ! Dear MR. Mayor (our Crystal Hills City Council...ignorant of Manitou's real downtown life!) and Department heads .... please take a bicycle ride on the roads you are to maintain...let's see if you have the courage to risk your own life !!

Re: “New German food truck boils with beer; April brings big culinary tickets

Oh! How sweet! The time is just right for me to attend! Thank goodness for stumbling here. I should sign up now for a reservation on April 19th. Tickets are pretty pricey but I know that the dishes are worthwhile to consume.

Re: “America's one big pothole

I'm no fan of Kunstler, but he is fun reading, from an apocalyptic point of view.
America is one big pothole because taxes are too low.
Now that gasoline prices are down by about a dollar a gallon we need to raise the gasoline tax to pay for bridge and road work. No brainer. Great jobs bill too.

I hope Cleveland gets their hands on him and puts him in their finest prison.

Re: “America's one big pothole

General Palmer's vision for our wide right of ways was that we use them for multiple modes of transportation. Bikes, Cars, Trolleys and Streetcars, Horse pulled carriages and pedestrians. We then said screw that and made them cars only wastelands. We have the room to put protected bike lanes all over the place. Combine that with a couple of trolleys and this town would attract the kind of people that tend to chose Ft Collins over COS. Keep up the good fight John!

Re: “Got the message?

The city has policies. They are not followed. The reason for not following them? We don't want to trouble the public with how the city is actually run: back channel deals, nepotism, and overpaid positions for unqualified employees. Didn't you get the memo?

Re: “Legally, it doesn't take much for a guest to stake a claim to your home

It a law that protects you if your roommate or landlord wants you out This prevents them from changing locks, taking your property or shutting off utilities. Only a Judge can order an eviction even if you have violated your lease nobody can bounce you out.
