Re: “One last shot at a downtown stadium

About the only good thing to come out of the C4C proposal was that it showed how little could be done without public support.

Re: “Reader: Let the transportation marketplace figure it out on its own

Ever since humans began walking upright, they have been searching for better ways to get from point A to point B. Lyft and Uber are the latest entries, and as always new ways are being resisted by those who are invested in the old ways. Mr. Castle is correct. Let the marketplace and the consumers decide.

Re: “One last shot at a downtown stadium

Why put a stadium in the downtown area? We do not have a way to handle the traffic problems it would create, I25 is overcrowded as it is, and the downtown streets are impossible if anything is happening right now. There has to be a better choice that this, one that would have room for parking, while avoiding traffic jams. I know boosters want to draw people to downtown, but this isn't the way.

Re: “One last shot at a downtown stadium

You forgot to mention one little thing about all of us naysayers: we are the ones who get stuck with the bill when all the best laid plans of those who "think big" collapse and fail.

Re: “One last shot at a downtown stadium

Great article and a great idea.

Let's not give up. Please keep writing about this and don't listen to the nay sayers. They always think small.

Let's be like Palmer and Penrose and the others dreamers. It's in our original DNA.

Re: “Reader: Confidential CSPD source is doing the public a disservice

How does Mr. Addy know the anonymous officer did not first "stand up to try to improve the department" from within? Perhaps he did and got nowhere, or, worse yet, was threatened if he did not drop it.

Re: “Colorado Springs City Council urged to ban puppy-mill dogs from stores

Thank you, Ms. Ameno, for exposing Ms. Brinkley. I thought she was a dog breeder trying to protect her profits, but it turns out she is most likely a "media consultant" paid to peddle lies and half-truths for the mill dog industry. She leaves the impression that she could not care less for dogs or their well-being, and probably has never owned one. All she cares about is her paycheck.

Re: “Colorado Springs City Council urged to ban puppy-mill dogs from stores

Ms. Brinkley writes, "If 'adopting' a shelter/rescue dog makes you feel 'better about yourself', you don't need a dog. You need a therapist."

I am sure any competent therapist will tell you that anything that "makes you feel better about yourself," and does no harm to others, is good for your mental health. On the other hand, telling people they need therapy just because you disagree with them, does harm to you both.

Re: “Colorado Springs City Council urged to ban puppy-mill dogs from stores

Elizabeth Turner Brinkley, I am pretty sure you don't live in our town or even our state, as you post similar diatribes in newspapers around the country. You are not at all familiar with the excellent work being done by National Mill Dog Rescue. And as a lover of pure-breds, why wouldn't you applaud a restriction on dogs being sold at pet shops? A responsible breeder is not going to place their pups in a situation where they cannot be assured of responsible owners.

Re: “Dragon Gate's kitchen is quite lively

I've been saying it for a long time... Dragon Gate for Strong Mayor!!!!!!!
Thirty plus years of consistent, solid food.
And a big plus is their willingness to customize... try requesting the egg foo yung with no cornstarch!!!
I adore Dragon Gate... I'd say in thirty years I could count on one hand the number of times it was disappointing.

Re: “One last shot at a downtown stadium

I specifically asked this question 4 years ago and was told "NO". The culture of the campus atmosphere required the stadium to remain where it is. In addition I was told they were raising funds to make it larger on the AFA campus. It was also mentioned in conjunction with the new visitors center. We are not a sports centric town and we have the Broadmoor fighting us for convention space. Our strength is livability. Lets concentrate on several large downtown living projects. Designed as rent controlled living areas with access to bike-able schools, grocery stores and science museums.

Re: “Suthers: Not wild about gorging on a military build-up

We ought to have our economic development people look at the costs to our local economy incurred by the extremist politicians we elect, people like Lamborn and Klingenschmitt for example. They do terrible damage to the brand of Colorado Springs. I would venture that we have less economic diversity and lower property values because of them. Suthers seems to be at least a reasonable person, so he is an asset, for the time being. He seems to understand that aspiring to be Fort Hood on the Rockies is not consistent with our citizens vision for the future.

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.

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

I just heard about a study on the radio about how most (over 70%) citizens of Colorado Springs do not think that there has been much of a change with regard to the quality of the streets. I agree with Suthers to the extent that the main thoroughfares in my area are much better. But the neighborhood streets not so much.

Robert Gentry, cats are not pets. They're coyote lunch. (:->) What possible emotional connection could a human have with a cat?
