Re: “Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo Foundation plans overhaul of Norris-Penrose Event Center

Recognizing that not everything in the world is somehow connected to The Broadmoor Land Swap of 2016, one cannot help but see an interesting thread buried in this article. If the right of first refusal (a title restriction) can be undone in this case, what does that say about the highly-touted, iron-clad right-of-first-refusal which was placed on Strawberry Fields?
The inclusion of that title restriction was used by both the city and the Broadmoor to reassure the public and help sell
their deal. Just sayin' .........

Re: “Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo Foundation plans overhaul of Norris-Penrose Event Center

Went to the rodeo ONE time. In 2005. All was fine until it was over and the event turned into an evangelical sermon. If I want a sermon I'll go to church. Never went back to this place. Never will.

I do hope they improve the facility. The one time we went a storm came up and the unpaved parking lot became a dust storm with all the wind. Dreadful. Nothing like a 3rd world experience in the world's only superpower. If that's the best we can do then sell it to China and let them invest it.

Re: “Progressive churches prepare to protect immigrants in the heart of Trump country

how does your church say to treat others??? are you truly a moral caring person or are you not???

just because you go to church does not make you a good person... you must show it in your actions... well what is it going to be?!!!

Re: “Progressive churches prepare to protect immigrants in the heart of Trump country

The other two commenters, you can't actually believe that you could argue reason and facts with people who write articles like this, do you? I mean, the author goes so far as to say "...the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) focus was purportedly on removing undocumented immigrants convicted of crimes, but people with very minor infractions often got swept up.." So it's telling me that illegal (undocumented) immigrants with VERY (as if there's a difference between minor and very minor???) minor infractions aren't actually "criminals" convicted of crimes? Seriously? THEY'RE IN THE COUNTRY ILLEGALLY AND THAT'S A F#%KING CRIME!!!

Re: “The tick and the time bomb

Hello, I am 25 years old and I first found out I had herpes 3 years ago. My first outbreak was definitely the worst thing I ever experienced. The bumps and blisters were swollen and red. I had a doctor give me Valtrex but I take the generic. I love the Valtrex because I take 1 gram a day for about a week and its gone. I had a doctor prescribe me Acyclovir but that gave me the worst headaches ever, so I stopped taking it. Since I was first diagnosed I have about 2 outbreaks a year. I have been able to cope with this by having supportive family and friends who look out for me. Even though I wish I never had this disease at all, Im able to deal with it and have a great life. a friend advice me to used herbal medicine and send me web site and email of Dr Aidenojie who was able to help me put an end to the herpes virus. Today i am so much happy and totally free should in case you need urgent help email aidenojiecurehome@gmail.com or visit his web: http://draidenojiecurehome.webs.com

Re: “Progressive churches prepare to protect immigrants in the heart of Trump country

BTW, because these people are actually criminals under this law, those helping them can actually be charged with aiding and abetting or under 8 US Code 1324, the latter usually being a felony.

Re: “Progressive churches prepare to protect immigrants in the heart of Trump country

"Progressive churches prepare to protect immigrants in the heart of Trump country "

Typical misleading headline. There is no threat to legal immigrants.

"But Trump's guidance, issued in January, upended the country's enforcement. That's because it defined "criminal" broadly enough to include everyone in the country without authorization like, say, all the women around this table. "

Again, misleading. Trump did not define what "criminal" is. Long established federal law, 8 US Code 1325 -- last changed over 20 years ago, actually makes them criminals, often felons. Trump is simply enforcing closer to the letter of the law.
