I hope they clean Simone's misbehavior here up....it is like a hostile takeover of the Indy to p[ost something of no interest on every discussion page. I am offended and await her apology.
Looks like spam to me, Farley. How many times did you post this, nimrod?
Schools need to teach our young people how to be personally responsible and self-sustaining...sex without consequences and responsibility is not a helpful contribution to that end.
Perhaps this money ought to be spent training parents how to parent, how to have a positively formational home, and boys that they must take responsibility for their actions.
This is just more of the gay/abortion lobby's agenda driven education and is destructive of society and the lives of our children.
I would not send my children to public schools in the new liberal Hickenlooper Colorado. The guy is the worst thing to happen to our state in all the decades I have lived here.
Take the city to court. It's the only way to fight these people.
Just follow the money. What a joke.
This is a city that never had a goal and thus never had a plan. Thus it is a city that is completely irrelevant among other US cities.
That is why new thought is required.
For years the old hands around this city thought that new homes were the economic messiah - the key to creating wealth - but we are now discovering it was a false god, as neighborhoods come with costly and everlasting infrastructure burdens such as water, roads, and fire/police support.
The real answer is entrepreneurial enterprises - something that only young minds can provide.
What is prophesized in the Bible can't be stopped, even the New World order. Don't you think that maybe God has a backup plan for those who accepted Christ as Lord and Savior (not believing in the Pope, TT) called...... The Hope of the Return of Christ! Haven't you ever read 1 Thessalonians? It's all about how Christ returns FOR the born again believers, then Armageddon & book of Revelations happens, then Christ returns WITH the saints to reclaim earth from Satan, the god of this world, and re-establishes Eden when he got from Adam disobeying Gods commandment not to eat the fruit of knowledge. Bet you didn't know that!
Yeah, that's another one of those books in the NT most don't know of. Romans 5:9-Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from the wrath through him. This gives me much comfort when knowing how that state of the world is in modern times. Something to think about.
Milligan's primary goal is to advance the new world order in her own image without a God to interfere with her reign of political correct totalitarianism...it is to turn Colo Spgs upside down, and that sort of radical transformation will not bring peace and stability, but strive and division.
If "Milligan is a far left whack job" then how far off the right edge of the map are you? Geez TT .. some days you make Pinochet look like a centrist.
Another 14 jobs and more young people gone. Good job blue hairs. As for Pico, he's a egotistical hack. I used to debate that guy on the Gazette, and he wouldn't know good science from a pile of sh*t. Like most of the council, he's a slave to ideology and blind to on the ground reality.
One poster wrote, "no one seems to be capable of hiring people who have the spunk, skills, and ideas to stand up and make a difference". There were some of us younger professionals with those traits in the Springs, and we were making a difference until about June 2011 when Mayor Bach took office and starting gutting the community. Our family recently left the Springs and so have a lot of people we know - other 40 and under people like us and even some really successful friends in their 50s and 60s. While it was hard to leave our friends, our home/neighborhood and our jobs, we are glad we did, especially given the recent take over of City Council. Thanks, David for trying to be an entreprenuer with Sun Share - you think the pro-business Reaganonomics-worshipping crowd would have been behind your capitalist efforts. But alas you are not a developer building junk houses/buildings and skirting regulations left and right.
So there is money when they say "turn out the lights, let the roads rot because we are poor"! I know people who try to earn $25k a year and cannot. $180k a year means you better be doing good work and that kind of pay is thanks enough. $25k extra for doing what you were hired to do is stupidity. Give it back to the taxpayers now please.
Oil derricks downtown?! Now that would be a sight especially if they were spewing crude everywhere!
But really, these protestors have no clue as to what they are talking about and if they drive to the place of protest then that is a bit contradictory. If they worry about our water it comes from Leadville. There is no ground water near downtown to speak of anyway. Our water is in Rampart Res and those ponds on Pikes Peak. Perhaps they could get the fertilizer at Walmarts parking lots put in better places. That stuff flows with the rain right into Fountain Creek etc.
Now that drugs are legal...whatever is just fine.
Smoke some dope, have sex, take a oops pill...all is well and all will be well.
Great idea, TejonTech! Let's just let kids shoot up anything they want in school without teacher intervention. Some of them might just be taking allergy medication.
If 15 year olds can take abortion pills without supervision, why can't they be responsible for this without government intervention?
I agree with them if for no other reason than because it would make our city a real hell hole to have drilling towers near businesses and neighborhoods...banning fracking within city limits seems like a no-brainer.
Unless the Broadmoor wants derricks along their golf courses, and we all know what the Broadmoor wants, the Broadmoor gets.
Storm Water control will certainly be a demanding project. If you would care to participate in our Storm Water Survey with your responses and comments, please feel free to sign up - this is a 'grass-roots' effort and the Annual Survey on Trust and Confidence in Local Government will be on-line in August. Thank you.
LivesLocally - "This city has been mismanaged since Bob Isaac stepped down as city manager."
I'm guessing you have not lived locally that long. Isaac was the mayor for 23 years, not the city manager.
CoS isn't a place to start a career or family, it is a place to retire. I left, along with 8 of my good CoS friends, within the past year. The Springs is a beautiful place to live, but not grow. I'm okay with it because it is too late for the area. Studying national economic and social trends for YPs shows that those regions that haven't gotten the mix right yet, will fail. Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins is a "mega region" that encourages opportunity, while CoS is better grouped with Pueblo. (Florida, Richard "Who's Your City? 2008)
YPs can gain more experience at a quicker rate in areas that encourage them to produce. It is in our best interest to learn to lead elsewhere, then return with enhanced skills and knowledge when the old guard dies. Our energy is truly better spent elsewhere.
Colorad Springs: Lovely to visit, or retire.
