In Sept of last Year (20120 the bus company licensed by this City government destroyed MY Person Property known as my bicycle which served as MY PRIMARY TRANSPORTATION and none of the parties which should have rectified the situation HAVE replace my transportation and I have suffered GREAT financial strain and MUCH EMOTIONAL distress over the lack of transportation and the Extra Expenses.
Where is my check? Oh, I have not been fired from a city job....
Did the mayor competitively bid all these consultant positions?
Just one more douchebag heading to Phoenix, the most insane state in the nation. He'll fit right in.
This guy is majorally disturbed...this is the sort of person who needs to be watched less they end up doing something horrible...he needs to be checked for guns and explosives, and they need to be taken away if he has any. this is a dangerous fellow who needs to be put on some sort of hold.
But this City government can not afford to replace person property damaged by the Bus Company they license as a Monopoly? (see http://captcommodore.wordpress.com/2013/03… ) And the city government has stooped to censorship by removing all posts on this subject from public foroms such facebook pages (the Mayors Facebook page) I am convinced the mayor will get this comment removed before they even attempt to settle with the ***Victim****
I don't see the big deal. Doesn't everyone get tens of thousands of dollars for doing mediocre work, then getting canned? Seriously, what else are you going to do with all that money? Services, parks, infrastructure? LOL.
Well the Dictator Bach may have been able to buy these people out but at least he was not able, along with the HBA to buy the election.
People and animals have been sickened and died from exposure to sewage sludge biosolids. Surface and ground waters have been contaminated. Sludge consists of a noxious mixture of human and industrial wastes. The US EPA allows Class B sewage sludge to have 2 million colony forming units of fecal coliform per gram of solids. State by state details
of sludge victims who suffer respiratory, gastrointestinal infections, burning eyes, noses and throats, skin lesions, asthma and life threatening diseases, etc.: http://www.sludgevictims.com.
The EPA and waste industry promote Class A
sludge as being pathogen free, for use on home vegetable gardens. Dr. Jordan Peccia, Yale, reports that Class A sludge is NOT pathogen free. He found
8 of the 14 bacterial and viral pathogens survived treatment in Class A sludge. Airborne, bioaerosol transport of sludge pathogens poses the greatest risk to human health. Class A sludge victims: http://sludgevictims.com/Class-A-sludge.ht…
A recent published, peer reviewed health study in North Carolina confirms human health risks from land applied sludge:
The US EPA confirms an ugly new risk in sludge - infectious human and animal prions (think mad cow, Chronic Wasting Disease, Alzheimers and Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease.) http://www.alzheimers-prions.com/
In the July 3, 2010 issue of VETERINARY RECORD, Dr.Joel Pedersen, renown prion expert, Univ/Wisconsin, stated: “Finally, the disposal of sludge was considered to represent the greatest risk of spreading (prion) infectivity to other premises.”

Colorado is so far behind --more progressive states have already figured out how to manage the buget and the needs... sometimes, people skills rather than math skills are needed in Human Services. Colorado needs to look around at other states with systems that work and learn from them. The tax payers deserve better than what CO is doing with that $. CCB's are ineffective and costly- revamp and improve lives!
Birth control is fine...but "we" isn't involved in the sex act...so "we" shouldn't have to pay for it...those involved ought to pay for their pleasure and birth control...not the rest of us...we need to breed personal responsibility back into the gene pool.
GOD FORBID WE GIVE THEM BIRTH CONTROL SO THEY WONT HAVE UNWANTED PREGNANCIES OR ABORTIONS-
One in five teen births are repeats, CDC says Apr 2, 2013 12:59 PM by JD Downing
More than 18 percent of all babies born to teenagers in the U.S. are baby No. 2 or 3, federal researchers reported on Tuesday.
It's bad news not only because it means young mothers aren't getting the message about birth control, but also because babies born to teenagers, especially unmarried teenagers, are more likely to be underweight and to have other health problems, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says.
"Although teen birth rates have been declining for the last two decades, in 2010, more than 367,000 teens aged 15-19 years gave birth," the CDC said in its report.
"Teen pregnancy and childbearing can carry high health, emotional, social, and financial costs for both teen mothers and their children," the CDC adds in a statement.
"Teen mothers want to do their best for their own health and that of their child, but some can become overwhelmed by life as a parent. Having more than one child as a teen can limit the teen mother's ability to finish her education or get a job. Infants born from a repeat teen birth are often born too small or too soon, which can lead to more health problems for the baby."
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg created some controversy last month with a plain-spoken anti-teen-pregnancy ad campaign that used images of crying babies to illustrate the problems faced by children of teenaged mothers.
The CDC's Lorrie Gavin and colleagues analyzed data from two major national surveys on vital statstics and pregnancy risk called the National Vital Statistics System (NVSS) and the Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS).
"Based on 2010 NVSS data from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, of more than 367,000 births to teens aged 15-19 years, 18.3 percent were repeat births," they reported.
While 85 percent of mothers who'd had babies before were having a a second child, more than 12 percent of teens had a third and 1.7 percent were for baby number four, five or six.
But there was a slight decline in repeat births, from 19.5 percent of all births in 2007 to 18.3 percent in 2010.
The researchers also looked at whether these young moms were trying not to get pregnant again.
"Of teen mothers who were sexually active, 91.2 percent reported using postpartum contraception after the most recent birth," they wrote.
But just 22 percent used the most effective methods -- a birth control implant or an intrauterine device (IUD). About half used moderately effective methods such as the birth control pill, a patch, injection ring or diaphragm, which about 15 percent used "less" effective methods, such as a condom or sponge and 8.8 percent used no method.
Health care professionals and educators need to do a better job of telling these very young women about their options and helping them use them more effectively, Garvin's team said.
"Teen childbearing has potential negative health, economic, and social consequences for mothers and their children and each year teen childbearing costs the United States approximately $11 billion," the researchers wrote.
"For example, 17 percent of infants who were second teen births were born preterm in 2010, compared with 12.6 percent for first births; 11 percent of second teen births were low birth weight, compared with 9 percent of first births," they pointed out.
Leslie Kantor of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America pointed out that states such as Texas and Mississippi have some of the highest teen birth rates and some of the lowest rate of health insruance coverage.
"When young mothers postpone a second birth, they have greater educational and job opportunities. The best way to prevent teen pregnancy across the board is by investing in effective sex education, encouragingteens to talk to their parents, and ensuring access to birth control," Kantor said in a statement.
"Overall, this data clearly speaks to the importance of the Affordable Care Act - which provides funding for teen pregnancy prevention programs and gives women coverage without co-pay for the full range of FDA-approved contraceptive methods," she added.
HERE'S A WAY FOR CC TO SUPPORT THE LOSS OF GOVERNMENT FUNDS- LMAO!
Connecticut Priest Pleads Guilty to Drug Charge By ALYSSA NEWCOMB April 2, 2013—
The former Roman Catholic priest who earned the nickname "Monsignor Meth" for his role in a cross-country crystal methamphetamine drug ring pleaded guilty today to a federal drug charge.
At a hearing in U.S. District Court in Hartford, Kevin Wallin, 61, changed his plea to guilty on a charge of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute the drug.
Wallin, who resigned in 2011, was the first of five defendants named in a federal indictment in January to enter a guilty plea.
Authorities allege the former pastor had methamphetamine mailed to him by his alleged co-conspirators in California, which he then sold out of his apartment, raking in more than $300,000 in sales.
On six occasions between September 2012 and January 2013, an undercover officer purchased methamphetamine from Wallin, according to U.S. Attorney David Fein.
Federal authorities also used wiretaps and surveillance to monitor the operation, Fein said.

Tim Leigh is far from clean and not is making sure that "ratepayer" dollars are being spent wisely when it comes to Drake. Instead, he is trying to impress the people in his district with his bizarre antics, disguised as "I ask the tough questions". It's really more like uneducated questions. Leigh was the one who said "better and cheaper technology was available", but has produced no examples. You call that clean behavior or honest? Is that what you wanted him to do? The citizens have now "peeked behind his curtain" and now see what kind of person he really is.
I hope this doesn't pass. The $10k cap is phony, as written. The groups or individuals should be held accountable for their actions and statements if they are not exonerated and the accuser should be held accountable if they are exonerated. The City shouldn't have to pay for bogus allegations. Imagine how some would take advantage of that!
This Neuman is trying to steal as much money from the city in whatever way he can before he dies...we ought not allow ourselves to be this guys life insurance policy.
happyfew...you have not a clue
The emotional roller coaster that parents face raising a child with disabilities is different from most of their friends and one that doesn't end. Medicaid can help fill in gaps, in our state it takes a long time to get the support (Florida)
since when do religious organizations, especially catholics, have any credibility in regard to children. deeply religious families shouldn't be able to adopt since they will be raised to be bigots. I also wonder what kind of "counseling" these kids are getting from the catholics.
I don't think members of this current administration understand the term "conflict of interest." I wonder if they are required to take an Ethics Course required of all Public Sector employees. It is not the same as the private sector when you work in the public arena. They seem to think their actions should be accepted as unbiased just because they tell the public they are not acting in their own best interests. They should recuse themselves from anything that even has the possibility of appearing a conflict of interest.
And absolutely, having the citizens of Colorado Springs pay for their legal fees is nothing more than a get out of jail free card. We simply cannot afford to pay for city council members individual ethics violation legal fees.
Guru...actually all you homosexuals were doing just fine and cultural negotiations were always possible until you decided to make public the mean spirited aspect of your disorder, and made everything a back to the wall fight, not only asking for us to respect your misbehavior, what should have been private...but also making us change what we believe, redefining our words and institutions to fit your perversions.
I used to not really care that people were gay, but now you and others have convinced me you are an enemy of peace, you are a terrorist against the proper order...you hate the family and men specifically...so, yes I am now pretty much against anything that gays put forth.
