Re: “Manitou paving stopped

Nobody ever accused CDOT of competence.

Yet you don't see the HD17 rep doing legislation to decommission Business Route 24 and return it to the cities and county, either.

Get that done first, then the cities can continue to fix it right.

Lost in the entire article is question that was never asked in the first place, which is why we need government permission slips and fees to use OUR property on OUR roads...

Re: “The Incline reopens, but more repairs are coming

Don't we need the Strawberry Fields deal to go through before that happens?

Re: “POPs measure on land swap in court

A press due to the presence of The Indy. Hopefully the town will grow to the point where it can support a real daily paper.

Re: “District looking for answers after failure of bond, MLO

Some odd comments on here. First, a Bond isn't exclusively (or even often times, anything to do with) building NEW schools. It's more commonly to support the upkeep of existing, in some cases quite antiquated buildings. Surely we don't want our children being educated for the 21st century in buildings barely fit for the 20th century?

I don't remember the district anywhere down-playing the cost, or suggesting that it the proposed additional taxes weren't 'a big deal'. They simply tallied up their needs, focused on those that were a most pressing priority, costed them accordingly, and presented that to the taxpayers.

What about the benefit to tax payers when they see an increase in their property VALUES? When you live in an area where the schools are modern, high-tech, and in high demand, local home owners benefit? What's the value of that?

Re: “El Paso County Democrats make slow progress on local level

"Are the county's Democrats doomed to stagnation in perpetuity?"

Until they get off the socialist bandwagon and embrace freedom, yes.

Until they quit the lip service to minorities, yes.

Until they learn what actual economics is all about, yes.

Until they ditch the Clinton Machine, yes.

Until they re-embrace classical liberalism instead of the racism and theft policies of Jackson, Johnson, FDR, and Wilson, yes.

Until they stand for rule of law and blue-collar/white-collar street reality instead of ivory tower philosophy that has no success in reality, yes.

Don't hold your breath.

Re: “District looking for answers after failure of bond, MLO

Marijuana taxes contribute $0 to school operational funds, the money that pays for teachers, books and technology. The marijuana tax law stipulates a maximum of $40 million goes into school construction. D11 has no need to build a new school at this time, and because of our assessed valuation as a major consideration in applying for these funds, D11 is likely to never see a dime of this money.

Re: “District looking for answers after failure of bond, MLO

The district might not think that an extra $100-$200 a year in property taxes is a big deal, but to many people it is, especially considering that insurance, utility bills, phone bills, cable rates, etc., are also on the rise. It was also a bad idea to think that people would swallow the whole $235 million pill all at once, especially since it was possible to look at the districts spending plan for it and see items that simply didn't seem that critical. A separate school maintenance bond would likely have passed since people can clearly see how the district has let the schools crumble in order to move money to other areas.

Re: “District looking for answers after failure of bond, MLO

The school capital construction only applies to building a new building as I have understood it. this does nothing for the needs of d11 that already has too many schools. most school districts get nothing from the pot fund as it currently stands.
