I am glad I left Colorado Springs for the Denver metro area. There are so many more opportunities up here. One of the Springs largest obstacle is Mayor Steve Bach who hasn't done anything of substance to bring back the economic diversity that once existed. The only thing Bach does is attend social functions. Ironically even his own children have elected to live in the Denver area for the aforementioned reason.

The Indy is much more of a reporting entity than the Gazette, not to mention fair and balanced about local news...if the Gazette even carries anything that it is not spoon fed in a press release.
They have no reporters. They have no interest or insight.
And Bach is very fairly treated in these pages.
Adrian - don't know if you have ever heard the mayor at one of his "Town Hall Meetings" refer to the Independent reporters as that "tabloid's reporters." So, it seems if you aren't singing his praises you must be unreliable as a news source.
Problem is anyone who has been in this town long enough to remember when there was a daily paper OTHER than the GT, is well aware of the slanted reporting the current Gazette is publishing and calling it news. This community does not like to hear the "other side" of any story. So to you and your fellow Indy reporters - keep up the good fight. It is appreciated.
TejonTech, you write, "...typical liberal emotional defense of a position contrary to nature..." According to theologists, that is. Scientists do not find homosexual activity to be "contrary to nature." At one time anything other than missionary position was labeled contrary to nature (even though no animal, other than humans, practice it).
gurudori, you wrote, "Not only did Apostle Paul use his Roman Citizenship to have a fair trail when the Jews wanted him excuted for converting to Christianity and blaspheme again OT..." Is this @#$% actually in the Christian Bible?
Its the law of the road that motorists are suppose to stop when someone is in a crosswalk . I live downtown and frequently drive through the CC campus and have never had a problem with CC students at their crosswalks. I know that the people of this city believe that they are above law and order, but that sounds more like a personal problem rather than one for CC or CONO.
The city gets "...'A+' grades for the ease of hiring additional employees in the city..." That means there is a large pool of unemployed workers in the city. That is a double-edged sword. It makes it easier to find employees, but harder to find customers.
Can they build a handful of crossing bridges on Cascade at the major arteries? it'll speed up traffic in the area and no one has to hit a CC student.
Dear Mrs Hickey. Morse has to go because he has disdain and contempt for the voting public. Last night, he tried to make marijuana ILLEGAL again! So when the voters speak, he listens and does the opposite. You see, like all progressive, marxist democrats, he believes you are an idiot and that you don't know what's good for you. And since you support this monstrosity of a politician, I am thinking he is right.
Hey Dick, why don't you run a few of them down. That'll show 'em.
"Just stay off Cascade." That's precisely what CC and the CONO control freaks want. Then they can justify the eventual vacation of Cascade and turn their snooty noses toward Nevada to further infuriate area motorists.
I don't understand. It is not rocket science. Just stay off Cascade.
We already have signals at Cascade/Cache La Poudre and Cascade/Uintah. If CC students and faculty want to jay walk in between these two traffic lights, enter at your own risk, I say. Meanwhile, let the motoring public travel in peace. Oh, and to Wayne Laugesen and the Gazette, hang it in your ear. There's no need for an "underpass."
Zen...again boring...typical liberal emotional defense of a position contrary to nature...and not true.
Siggie, They will vote into existence their alternative reality with the like and dislike button...
I'm thinking that all of the cry-baby, bitch at everything, pessimist, naysayers, who believe that Colorado Springs is such a horrible place, will reject this outright.
Jazus! Give the kids a break. Cascade, between Uintah and Cache La Poudre is basically a free for all with the kids having the 'right of way'. I drive it nearly every day and don't see a problem. However, I do fear that some nimrod motorist is going to come flying through and run over someone.
Now, the same stretch on Nevada is a whole different problem.
Hell is real, isn't it?
the crosswalks on Cascade where these students rudely delay drivers should have control signals - red lights - that tell them when they cannot cross.
There should be a CC police officer handing out citations every once in a while.
How else are these children going to learn good citizenship ?
The current situation assumes that CC students are all 5 years old and need to be protected from themselves. They're not.
