Re: “Helicopter accident report raises questions about 2015 Black Hawk crash

Good reporting. I've studied that truncated report and would add that the fact that it took 18 months to release anything is part of the deception. Slow walking the release of information is a strategy all by itself. Dozens of pages totally blank. Blacked out sections throughout. They operate on tax payer money and are obligated to more transparency. Reading closely one realizes there could have been an inferno if the fuel tanks hand been punctured. Currently Fort Carson is in the process of seeking more helicopter landing zones on both United States Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management lands in our nearby mountains. It's only a matter of time before their antics set off a really big forest fire. Meanwhile their daily intrusions into that airspace continue to impact the serenity of our mountain landscapes.

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

This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experienced. I visited a forum here on the internet on the 5 October 2016, and i saw Akindele. Tovela testimonies on the forum about the good works Dr.Sandy. I never believed it, because have never heard anything about such miracle before.I was cured of (HERPES) with the used of natural herbs. I love herbs so much. Most times, injection and drugs are just a waste of time. I was cured 7months ago, i suffered from (HERPES) for 12yrs but with the help of Dr.Sandy herbal medicine, i was cured within few weeks of drinking the herbs he sent to me through courier delivery service. This same doctor also cured Akindele. Tovela from herpes, as soon as i heard she had herpes, i quickly refer her to Dr.Sandy and she was cured too after drinking his herbs.I have referred more than 8 persons to Dr.Sandy and they were all cured from their various illness. Have you taken herbs before?. You have spent so much money on drugs,injections,surgeries etc and yet you have no good result to show for it. Contact Dr.Sandy now he is a herbalist doctor, i assured you of a cure if you drink his natural herbs. Dr.Sandy have herbs that cures.

Re: “Colorado's mixed report on transgender issues

I am M2F transgendered and have been getting EXCELLENT care at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System (VAPAHCS) for many years at both hospitals and Outpatient Clinics (OPC), even before the VA had an official policy on the matter.

I encounter Veterans at Palo Alto Division (main hospital) from as far away as Sonora, or even Nevada, who are there because the care there because the care they require is not available where they live hundreds of miles away. The VA offers travel reimbursement for the extra miles but not the extra time needed to make the round trip. All-in-all pretty good I'd say. Ms. Zabel should not be so critical of an organization, VHA, that provides excellent if not perfect care for us Veterans, transgendered and otherwise.

Re: “Al Gore continues to build an army, battle climate change denial

Al Gore should organize another Democratic vote by scientists, what was the last - 95% of the scientists who knew nothing about climate voted with ignorant blind faith in worship of the few who professed to understand climate

Al Gore is Trumped lately, perhaps he should organize another Democratic vote where 95% [?] of scientists who know nothing about climate in blind faith worship the few scientists who say they understand climate

Re: “CSPD's academy flunks eight due to failing the driving test

Zubek should apply to the CSPD and make a difference!! Now that would be newsworthy! But it's much easier to cast stones and always complain instead of suggesting solutions.

Re: “CSPD's academy flunks eight due to failing the driving test

Did they indicate how many failed the physical fitness test? I have seen them out running in the neighborhood around Murray/Galley and a large percentage don't look fit enough to be considered for a police job.

Re: “CSPD's academy flunks eight due to failing the driving test

I'm curious as to how much drive training they get prior to the test? It didn't specify, just that it was inaccurate. The whole trainer flying the drone thing should raise some eyebrows within the police hierarchy.

Re: “CSPD's academy flunks eight due to failing the driving test

"If equipment (uniforms, guns, tasers and body armor) is factored in, one recruit guessed the bill at about $200,000."

Do the recruits get to take their gun, taser, and body armor with them when they leave? I doubt it, so just sensationalizing for reaction?

Re: “Tenacious advocate for the homeless leaves behind an outsized legacy

She was a beautiful soul, a rare treasure indeed. I came out from Guam and was able to spend 4 days with her. The streets had been so harsh to her and she was worn down to a nub. A flickering Candle about to be extinguished. I poured all the food,love, and encouragement I could had into her in those 4 days. She was a fighter and she took in the truth of who she was and rallied around to Take On The World. She herself was in awe of what she was accomplishing. I was not. I like to think I had a part of this great accomplishment of hers in this last year. Even if my only contribution was to love and not judge. That was her message. More Love, be less of a judge.And don't sit in your ivory white tower thinking you don't need to do anything. That this battle does not concern you. It concerns us all. We must all do whatever we can. Even if that is a look into the eyes of someone who is struggling. A look that says I see you, You're a person,you are valuable You Are Not Alone. I was so honored to be loved by Raven we talked almost every day. her love made me feel special. I have lost my dearest friend and my greatest treasure. RIP my Neni Girl, Hu guaiya hao, always and forever

Re: “Friends and family of slain man push for the release of video evidence

I am sorry to tell you that people are changing so much that honestly really nobody knows anyone as well as they think and there are other situations that have happened before all this happened that is not being said by the police. Okay I may not know they parties involved but it sounds like there are lots of things that are and have occured but when a situation takes place it takes actions from both sides for the reactions to occured. I would really appreciate it if you don't blame everything on one person when it takes both parties. A lot of people have done things that nobody knows about and has there deep dark secrets. I am being respectful. There are also many different stories about this whole thing and so it is hard to tell exactly what really happened but to me it sounds like there are a lot of things that are being kept secret about the whole situation. With the video situation the family could have stepped out when they showed the video to the people that were in the court room because I understand that it could really hurt the family but this is just from my point of view. There is a lot that is fishy about this whole case.

Re: “Mayor Suthers hits his stride in accomplishing campaign goals

Roger Bird - I used to feel the same about cats till I got one. Now, if forced to choose between my cat and my wife, I would ask her to clean the litter box before leaving!

Understand how so many think that much is not happening with road improvements - however, that money is coming in at the rate of about $12M a month and $12M will only resurface so many miles of road with the associated curb, gutter and ADA add-ons to be done.

How are you going to feel if the Mayor has his way and calls on the council, after the election, to impose a new stormwater fee - and not go to the public for a vote?

Re: “Mayor Suthers hits his stride in accomplishing campaign goals

I think the streets are getting slowly better. We really don't need more police officers. If you take a 5 mile radius from Petersen AFB, 90% of Colorado Spring's Crime is in that area. This data comes from the Police Department. Thus, why not concentrate cops in that area. The off shoot issues, such as accidents in the snow are handled by filing your own report and telling your insurance company. If anything, we need more Sheriff's deputies, since their patrol area is the entire El Paso county.
