Re: “A look at Colorado Springs City Council candidates where they live

Wow... this is very irresponsible journalism. If you could call it that. And an affront to privacy. While I get this is public information, the premise of "let's look at the millionaires who are running for council" and then to draw the conclusion "not many," but still put pictures of their homes up for all to see. Shameful.

No wonder it is difficult to convince good people to run for elected offices these days. Way to contribute to the filth Indy/Pam.

Re: “Breathing fire

As a Jew, an Israeli, a veteran and a firearms instructor, I'm surprised that I've never heard of Mel Bernstein. I'm glad to know of his existence and I wish he and his museum/business many more years of nachas and mazal.

Re: “Skorman leads in mid-March poll of Council District 3 voters

What do you feel is the impact from the increase in 'negative' campaigning and mudslinging has on the public's propensity to vote in minor elections? What impact does it have on your vote? Please consider five minutes spent with us to explore this topic. An independent 'grass roots' poll. Thank you!

Re: “10-year-old is seizure-free after one year of cannabis oil

After My first 3 months of cannabis oil, My tumors decreased up to 60%! my oncologist was shocked. I am so happy with how the oil has changed my life. Not only do I

truly believe it has been the reason my tumors are decreasing, but also, the oil off my anxiety and sleeping meds! Something that i had relied on so much before, now replaced with a natural cure. The connection we have made with your organization has truly done so much for our family already.

Re: “Abuse allegations continue at youth facility

Devereux Cleo Wallace is a dangerous and abusive place for children. I trusted them with my son and he was thoroughly traumatized by both enduring emotional and physical violence at the hands of staff, and by witnessing the constant violence perpetrated by staff on other kids. Have you talked to admissions and checked out the videos and website? Do not believe for a minute that they will swim, ride horses, pet the therapy dog, or get therapeutic care. They create unnecessary distress for fragile, mentally ill kids, then punish them for reacting. Restraints and locking children in the "quiet room" were constant. This is an expensive, private, abusive jail for kids. I can't for the life of me understand how they haven't been shut down. Devereux Cleo Wallace is a house of horrors.

Re: “Pinned Down

My bipolar child was at Devereux Cleo Wallace and suffered greatly from staff who would deliberately antagonize the children, cause them to be upset, then restrain them and lock them in a small room. Staff threatened to retaliate against my son if he kept complaining. I finally pulled him out before he became the next statistic. My report to CPS was not even the only one - someone else had reported abuse to him a week before I did. Horrifying. Stay away from this place. I pray every day for the poor souls still locked in there, because staff and police don't believe them.

Re: “Update: Writers in Gazette have history of political consulting

A review of the Colorado Secretary of State's listing for Windhover Creative Partners LLC shows NO change in ownership or members - calling into question Wayne Laugesen's claim that he (and Scott Weiser) "left" the organization.

Perhaps Wayne and Dede could release the tax records for their business?

They certainly have not had any problem asking that of others.

Re: “Dispute in Council District 5 race over false campaign claims

Being a 'political consultant' must be similar to being a defense attorney. Somebody has to do it and if you are good - you make great money. Which is the bottom line of politics.

Re: “Dispute in Council District 5 race over false campaign claims

Lying to people to win campaigns is not an attribute of a great person. Sorry. Schoolyard taunts? Why don't you read some of the libel put out by this "great person" and how she and the people that pay her have no issue destroying lives in order to get a few more votes. Sounds to me like she got caught committing a misdemeanor. Imagine if an opponent of one of her clients had a hint of a traffic infraction what Ms. Jack would manipulate that into!

Mr. Miller, Have to respond. Sarah Jack is indeed a political consultant . . . and a great person that gives her time and energy to making our community better. Sorry you took the next step down for local political discourse by calling names like this is some schoolyard taunt.

Re: “Helicopter accident report raises questions about 2015 Black Hawk crash

Good reporting. I've studied that truncated report and would add that the fact that it took 18 months to release anything is part of the deception. Slow walking the release of information is a strategy all by itself. Dozens of pages totally blank. Blacked out sections throughout. They operate on tax payer money and are obligated to more transparency. Reading closely one realizes there could have been an inferno if the fuel tanks hand been punctured. Currently Fort Carson is in the process of seeking more helicopter landing zones on both United States Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management lands in our nearby mountains. It's only a matter of time before their antics set off a really big forest fire. Meanwhile their daily intrusions into that airspace continue to impact the serenity of our mountain landscapes.

Re: “New female AFA commandant moving here soon, with her wife

Nowhere on the original e-mail was there any mention of "For Official Use Only." There were no disclaimers of any kind and it was sent out to EVERYONE at USAFA with an e-mail account on the date shown above. It was on some Facebook accounts within hours--including parent pages. And, yes, I agree that most of the Air Force is actually "f[u]rther along in this whole acceptance thing" than some want to acknowledge, and that's a good thing. I also think that you're missing the MRFF's point here. No one on the MRFF staff is calling for a headline that says "Lesbian Hired!" They're just asking the legitimate question: "Why, if the selection's already official and broadly announced to USAFA personnel, hasn't there been a public announcement or press release stating the relevant facts (and her private life is not a relevant fact here)?" The strange lack of timing just raises eyebrows and begs the question, "Are they trying to hide or downplay something here?" It just seems weird that DAYS go by without a press release when it was almost instantaneous in the past for other senior leader position changes at USAFA (Supt, Dean, AD, etc). And yes, Good on you, USAFA and Big Blue, for the selection.
