Re: “Stormwater: the big ask

I'm not in favor of such a large amount of money for so long a period. I prefer the PPRTA approach of short durations with specific projects identified.

Re: “Stormwater: the big ask

I am good with this, but if I have to pay for the water, I should have the right to slow, sink, or store the runoff from my roof. Since it will wind up watering my garden during dry times, it will still be returning to the downstream and aquifer, just a bit slower and less destructively.

Re: “Here's Peggy

Good article on Peggy Littleton, although I don't necessarily agree with the public workforce center needing additional funds either, because there are lots of capable employment agencies in Colorado Springs and room for private workforce centers to spring up too.

Re: “Here's Peggy

" Littleton is behind the Lighthouse Program (, a fledgling organization aimed at setting up communications centers in neighborhoods to be used in the event that a disaster — whether a financial collapse, an act of terror, or natural calamity — takes out the power grid. Littleton envisions ham radio operators and volunteers communicating with the central Emergency Operations Center when all other modes of communication are down."

According to those I have talked with, her Lighthouse Program is overly ambitious, requires community and ham radio operator buy in that just isn't there (except among some Doomsday Prepper types), and is a looong way from writing MOAs/MOUs or being close to fruition, even though it has been in the idea stage for a couple years now. In fact I think they only recently started holding meetings and put up a basic website with any kind of concepts. And there is no guarantee that the City will buy in. Some feedback I received makes it sound like she is trying to invent a system without knowing what other systems are already out there and what their capabilities are.

Re: “Here's Peggy

This is why I whole heartedly support Jariah Walker! He is a breath of fresh air and even though he doesn't hold this office yet he is at all the functions and actively supports small businesses like mine Her Story Café. We need him to represent our community!!!!

Re: “Gaffes, missteps and crimes

looloo: Here's the link to that article with pix of Mrs. Maketa & Tiffany Huntz.…

Hilarious, an orchestrated mob for Maketa to defend the indefensible; the wife puts on a big phony smile as she "stands by her man" no matter what he did. Gotta love the GOP family values crowd...can you imagine a government with Maketa, Haggard, Palin, et al?

Re: “Gaffes, missteps and crimes

The picture of Maketa's wife and one of the women in this case on the front of today's Gazette looks like the last goofy outpost of denial in this sleazy, reptilian episode.

Didn't Betty Beedy once say that the number of teen pregnancies drops off dramatically at age 21?

Re: “Citizens gird to battle trash

I spent four hours cleaning along 21st and Cimmarron about three weeks ago near the Gold Hill Mesa development. I pulled all of the bags out of the trees and had it looking fairly clean. Today, it is worse than it was before I cleaned it. I am really grateful to the city for funding some projects to clean the land, but I wish that there were more, even if it meant higher taxes.
