Considering CSF is attempting to exercise influence they might not really possess, and the rather inept handling that Cassiana and Lane provided in their initial failure - would it not make sense to vote for the measure to increase the votes required for sale of portions of Colorado Springs Utilities up from a simple majority vote to one requiring 60% voter approval?
In short, vote No, No, and No.
a fine of $500? My god - this city can't take a step in the right direction without two in the wrong.
The people standing on the medians on Powers Blvd are insane.
Common sense , not the First Amendment , says these medians are hazardous .....
The Parks are worth " hundreds of millions " ... But we won't spend to adequately maintain them or acquire them ( BTW when is Corral Bluffs gonna open ? Years and years in planning and press releases .... )
"Nationally, trends show more people want to live and work in an urban environment. With our cost of living and proximity to the outdoors, Downtown Colorado Springs is perfectly poised for this growth."
Except Colorado Springs isn't very urban, so stating that it is 'perfectly poised', is a bit of a stretch.
What does the governor or a police officer know about brain disorders, medications and diagnosing a patient? Anyone who self-medicates can wind up in prison very easily except the law calls it "drug abuse". The agency that runs the medical industry is not made up of physicians but rather DEA agents. Every doctor that writes prescriptions to patients must pay a yearly fee to the DEA for a permit. Many cannot get medications because doctors are in fear of the DEA. In fact most people in this country fear law enforcement and the court system and that is not a healthy situation but the War on Drugs must continue. We must not have negative thoughts either the story states and it has been stated over and over since the 1970's self-help book craze. That it is completely wrong is something quack therapists and hippie mystics cannot admit.
Also there is no such thing as "mental illness". Where or what is your mental? How does it become ill???
The governor is trying to avert attention away from the continuous sub-standard treatment of inmates and especially now with the Fremont County Sheriff's blatant disregard for prisoners and the private for-profit company that enables abuse at his jail. Now that an inmate who could not make bail, was not convicted of any crime yet was imprisoned then denied his medication ( Klonopin) and ended up dead. The private company stated the jail is a "narcotic free zone". Klonopin is for anxiety is not a narcotic it is a benzodiazepine. But to supply an inmate with anything is a profit loss. Stopping any benzodiazepine causes withdrawals and apparently as with the deceased inmate it also causes contusions and numerous broken ribs. The Sheriff did not order an investigation of the death and now the Federal government is taking it to trial and likely the sheriff will become an inmate.
This is all stemming from the amateurish antics of the untrained spewing out their ignorance of medicine. Right here we were told how anxiety is "cured" by "no more negative thoughts" and painting pictures! How dare you print such rubbish! Talk about stigmatizing something! How about focusing on your readership which is the left and their anger issues and their being in denial? Which by the way, anger is a normal human emotion and how it has become almost a crime can be traced right back to the "for profit = kickback" court system which touts itself as the best in the world-sentencing people to bogus anger management classes. Again utter claptrap but people are believing it because it is repeated often enough.
Try researching before writing and if not then write about sidewalks or write how to write about sidewalks. Or perhaps take a lesson from Hazelhurst who can write about anything as long as it involves mentioning his house on the West Side. He might write as though his brain is abnormal but his diagnosis no doubt will be alcoholism, a.k.a. "self-medicating". Oh yeah, it is okay to be negative about Doug Bruce for decades right?
I have a son who moved here from another state with his 3 children and is living with me in my 1 bedroom apartment and has not been able to find affordable housing. He gets food stamps and $500 from ADF, if anyone has suggestions please call 719-400-3414.
Of course it all got voted down. They use the money to pay attorneys to attack innocent people and threaten them with harassment so they won't ask anymore question.
I have a FERPA investigation ongoing against d11. D11 is a joke when it comes to student privacy and student safety. When there is a real problem they stick their heads in the sand and hope it will just go away.
D-11 talks a good talk on student privacy but fails in the execution of actually doing it.
I am sorry to see another great city employee pushed out. Speaking of Fleet Management, they are now in year 4 with Serco has the City been saving any money?
while they're fighting to lead this social club, maybe someone should form a separate organization to work to elect Democrats to office?
Not a surprise. I worked there for 5 years as lead ombudsman. I told Rob MacDonald that a current supervisor told me "I wasn't as smart as a man" and gave me a bad review and denied a raise, after 5 years of incredible reviews. Rob did nothing and I had to contact lawyers for what i deemed sexism. The Administration here is awful.
Did I really just read that a candidate doesn't know a "damn" thing about politics and thinks book groups are how to raise money for the party? Wow... The amount of work that needs to be done to activate the middle of the party is staggering. Dems lost the presidential race at least in part because the voice of the left fringe is so loud that us in the middle of the road are completely left out of the conversation. We need a party leader who has proven skills to lead and find common ground for us all to unite around -- someone who knows something about politics and does not wear her ignorance proudly on her sleeve...
can I just pay and not have to do the CS? the case is 10 years old and I work full time
I'm confused, as per the article, "The law also boosted the base minimum wage for waiters who must make at least minimum wage when tips are factored in from $5.29 to $6.28 an hour."
But Kanatzar says "he already pays much of his staff more than the minimum, and while waiters are generally paid the minimum, when tips are factored in they're his "highest-paid employees."" So....it sounds like this shouldn't impact him at all if his waiters are already making $6.28 or more with tips.
"Since he now has to pay waiters more, Kanatzar says, he won't be able to boost the pay of his kitchen staff as much." - Why would he have to pay them more if they are his "highest-paid employees" already with tips.
Did I miss something here?
With our country in decay by Billionaires buying favors from our Federal politicians it's disgusting to see our City Council and Mayor Suthers becoming whores to a billionaire! Hey Suthers....did he offer you a job ... you can tell us .... he already has US Senator Michael Bennet in his back pocket ! It's disgusting you have skirted the public process and input to do "The Bully of the Broadmoor" a favor. Dear City Council it us -we the citizens that have made this community what it is - NOT Anshutz. He is Johnny come lately on the Broadmoor also. You're so afraid of a little bad print press from this guy that you'll shaft the public. Shame on you REPRESENT US YOU COWARDS !! What's next ....gonna give him a reservoir with the same sheltering from public input.
A living wage is a human right and still in this life time I cannot understand why some resent and refuse that we all exist on this earth together.
The huge profits of an extremely few strangle the many. Complicity, allowing and participating in a socioeconomic system that allows some at the expense of the many warps us all especially if we do nothing.
Business owners small and independent usually struggle and often build "profit sharing" into their structure and these kinds of orientations are creating alternatives and supporting SUNRISE INDUSTRIES. Sunrise Industry's like solar and wind are more obvious in as a Sunrise industry because of energy need. Other Sunrise Industries that reinforce the infra structure think: roads, bridges, coastal ... and other concerns.
Businesses are and can be even more activly supporting "sunrise ideas" and "sunrise industrial growth" that put people to work and observe the concerns of the earth. It is cooperation that creates social ties, culture, art, belief and spirituality and so much more that makes may make us more "civil." We all have responsibility-individually and societally, I am the worse at this; I am working on this.
Those of us who work in the service industries have a right to make a living wage. I support the right of all to a living wage and the resources to support life, education, political participation and more.
Oh, I see, Mr. Bird. Everything is about name-calling for you. Maybe you think it helps avert attention from the facts. Read something academic--as opposed to late-night radio conspiracy theories--concerning supply and demand and you will learn that employees are in fact considered an expense; and with the minimum wage increase, employers are threatening to cut hours and staffing in order to cut--what was it--yes, expenses. Ask someone in business what the first rule in business is; I'll save you the trouble, the first rule is pay yourself.
