Re: “Springs, Pueblo agree to 20-year, $460 million pact

Wow. I have been planning to move to the Springs, but this makes me have second thoughts. Sounds like more taxes ahead.

Mrs. Zubeck is indeed a 'fog-horn' Who else provides so much depth of information?

Pam Zubeck gee whiz, you are a city super-hero. It's too bad too, because that means our city has super-villains. You keep exposing them but they keep slipping back into the fog. We need to pick up the slack - you and your side-kick J. Adrian Stanley are doing too much work!

Re: “Senator Ted Cruz coming here for GOP state assembly — and Trump might, too

They get it wrong, the "con man" isn't Trump---it's Cruz. "Outsider", my butt! Ivy League ed, wife works on Wall St. Gets up in front of these poor dumb bubbas and tells them whatever they want to hear. Back to the Gold Standard? Why absolutely! Heidi Cruz must bust a gut over that one! All this talk while back about Trump's hands. Make Cruz take his shoes off! May be Cloven Hooves hiding in those Thom McAn's. Cruz is the Devil.

Re: “Senator Ted Cruz coming here for GOP state assembly — and Trump might, too

Please don't vote for Cruz! He is in favor of selling MILLIONS of acres of federal land (see link to video below). Many of us consider these lands to be a national treasure. They belong to ALL Americans. Cruz would destroy our public lands. http://www.idahostatesman.com/news/local/environment/article64362377.html

Re: “City refuses to release appraisals in Broadmoor land exchange; opponents start to mobilize

The Parks Department should stay out of the business of deal making with private developers and stick to managing parks. Appraisals should been done and released prior to any announcement of support by the Parks Department. Good real estate practice requires a written contract, but this is an oral agreement so no one can question it. Good exchange analysis requires that the price the Broadmoor paid for the land be considered, but instead the City allows a markup of 20 times. Now, the appraisals are a secret from the people that pay taxes. What a process.

Re: “City refuses to release appraisals in Broadmoor land exchange; opponents start to mobilize

So, I'm going to say what everyone else seems reluctant to say..........

What is Parks so afraid of? What is the Broadmoor so afraid of?

Re: “Airbnb-style rentals may be impacting neighborhoods and affordable housing

So basically a few people hate short term rentals and and want to force their desires on everyone. I've had noisy neighbors that owned their own home. Short term rentals are not the problem. "Regulating" short term rentals is just another push for big government. LEAVE THE PEOPLE ALONE.

Re: “Reform schooled

I can’t say I am fully against such policies as "pay-for performance" that base teacher salaries partially on their students' test scores. This should prompt teachers into educating better. I think that lack of students’ writing skills which lead to services like http://customessaywritingservice.ae/ , can partially be the result of teachers’ low qualification or their lack of desire to study. I do not insist, but I kind of see some connection. Not all teachers are bad, but some need a little push in a form of strict policies on their salaries. Thank you for the news update.

Re: “City refuses to release appraisals in Broadmoor land exchange; opponents start to mobilize

Why would the appraisal for public land be confidential? Dont we own that land? I could see the other being kept to themselves its private land but I dont see why the public land cant be disclosed.

Woops, sorry, here's the reprint of Vicki Jones' email from Ms. Palus: https://www.change.org/p/colorado-springs-…

Re: “City refuses to release appraisals in Broadmoor land exchange; opponents start to mobilize

Per an email to a constituent, Ms. Palus claims the Appraisers name is Ron Whitington. So, what's up with that? See Vicki Jones reprint of Ms. Palus' correspondence in the comments here: http://m.csindy.com/coloradosprings/city-r…

And, per the City presentation to the public on 3/30, they had 104 surveys complete, 87 Post-note-comments from 1/28 meeting, 48 comments from 2/24 meeting, 1 comment from 3/2 TOPS meeting, 4 comments from 3/10 meeting, 50 comments from 3/14 meeting and 67 "email comments". If one were to group all those which is really not apples to apples, that's 361. So, in terms of "comments" as defined by their own reporting, their math is really 190 or 257 if one is to add in "emails". Seems to be stretching it to say 464 comments. That math and transparency thing. It matters.

Details aside..."WOW!" They really don't want to share those assumptions. Given that Strawberry is the only parcel appraised below El Paso County records (which is highly unusual as assessor data is typically lower than FMV projections) by approximately $800,000...well...I guess it makes sense.

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

Do you know that there is a great Herbal doctor who can cure any
disease? Like Cancer, HIV, syphilis, diabetes, herpes, anthrax, madness,
low spam count, pregnancy And also bring back your Lover e.t.c. Well my main
reason why i am writing this right now is to inform the whole world
about the great deeds, DR.ITUA did for me. My name is Jessica Ruiz Hasiba,
I was diagnosed of HIV in the year 2012 ever since then i was taking my
medications, until i met the great spell caster, though i never
believed in spell. I saw many testimonies on how he cured deadly
diseases. I contacted him through his phone number. I called him, he
asked me to send him my email, which i did. He told me that the only
alternative is for me to send him the money, and then he can help me to get
the items and herbs for my treatment. I promised myself to do anything
to get cured. I sent him the money. He bought the items and casted a
curing spell on me and also sent me a herbal potion, i used it as He
instructed. 7 days later he asked me to go for check up, when i did the
check up i was tested HIV Negative. I am so happy, I can not stop
thanking Him, If you passing through hardship and you need a way out,
kindly contact him via his email on ituaherbalcenter@gmail.com

Re: “Personhood USA announces launch of local abortion ban initiative

Seems to me there is a multitude of "hate crimes" being verbalized by the pro-death clan on this! Why? The woman's body is her own! Really? Abortion should only be performed prior to conception! Just cross your legs girls! Then ya won't need to go to pp hood for your birth control pills either! Don't screw with out protection!! You really shouldn't wait until your full of sperm, to stop and think about it! Get it figured out, before you take the juice!!
