Attention motorist, the city has decided to reduce the capacity of Research Parkway, a road that is heavily congested with east-west (auto) traffic during many hours of the day in order to conduct an experiment. The end result is an increased risk of traffic accidents, backups at un-timed signal lights and a higher chance of road rage incidents (due to the created congestion). Bicyclist (which there are very few on Research) and pedestrians (which include a high number of school children) are at an increased risk do to the increased congestion levels (when accidents happen they often spill into adjacent spaces such as the new bike lane and existing cross walks). The city did not provide adequate acceleration/merge lanes for traffic turning onto Research from cross streets (you have to do a very dangerous wide right turn to join east bound Research from Rangewood) so the risk of accidents at those intersections has been increased. As this is a poorly planned experiment on the city's part the city should be held liable for any accidents that take place in this experiment zone. Please contact your city council representative and the mayors office to let them know that you don't appreciate the increased risk and the reduced services offered by this poorly thought out experiment. I want my $10,000 back.
Me and a dear friend of mine went here today because of your review. We were sadly disappointed for the price the amount of food was almost ridiculous butt since we were paying $40 for 1 steak with a quarter cup of refried beans in a cup next to it ordered medium rare and we received it well done when we said something about it cuz there was absolutely no pink in the steak at all we were given $5 off so we paid nearly $35 for an overdone tough piece of meat granted the flavor was awesome but very disappointing.
It's no ones business except the decisional adult and their physician. It's called freedom. If it's not for you, don't do it.
Never give up on treating your cancer and diabetis for there is a cure and my husband was once a cancer patient, am wesie ryan living in Belgium. Two years ago my husband suffered from lungs cancer and diabetis the doctor told us that nothing could be done, I was so frustrated and the thought of loosing my husband was so unbearable that I lost all hope.
One faithful day my daughter told me that she had found a cure for cancer and she found it on the internet. Although i didn’t believe her I watched it anyway just to please her and after watching it I discovered that it brought my hope back and i wanted to give it a try.
I and my daughter started searching for legitimate source that could provide the hemp oil that would cure my husband. We read a lot of testimonies online of how a lot of doctors has helped a lot of patients cured their cancer with hemp oil and it was on one of this sites we found a sole distributor of RSH oil,olokum, we contacted him Via his Email: email@example.com or call +19147094469 or add him on whatsapp +2348158836673 which we found in the testimony we read.
RSH oil is the best ever, I followed his instruction and now my husband is healthy and I am so excited. doctor can cure diabetis, hiv/aids, warts and alot more.
Thanks to RSH oil for helping my husband cure his cancer with his and for also making life worth living once again. We all love you jon wesie.... God Bless
It's just a tough pill to swallow, as a long time Colorado Springs resident. c/s has some responsibility of maintaining parts of the incline and Barr trail. Most users of the incliners are from the Springs and most of the $$ donated is probably from c/s. So we pay for it, tax dollars go to purchase and maintain, fight for it, give our land(strawberry fields) and we get nothing from manitou! Other then the "your unwelcome here" sign when you try to park! Where's the long term solution if this doesn't get the results they want? Just keep raising parking? What about the alternative route down and parking at the bottom? We gave up strawberry fields for what? This? Cause this sucks. We get screwed again.
Tannim, you've marched your lack of concern for our country out one more time. After months of investigation and testimony the FBI determined there were no serious violations of national security. Keep on beating that dead horse. I told you what I thought of Gary Johnson after his "What's Aleppo" gaffe; now I've gotten to see two more interviews/town hall meetings and Johnson's coherency and questionable mentality stand out even more starkly. Was he stoned the last time he rambled through an interview? Are YOU stoned thinking that Johnson has a snowball's chance in hell of being elected?
My father was an 'original' member of the Air Force, converting from the Army Air Corps. He had a 4 digit serial number in the 'A' category. He was a lifelong member of the Air Defense Command, a fighter pilot, a WWII hero and WWII POW. He helped with the planning for the NORAD system, aided in the move from the Chidlaw Building to Cheyenne Mountain. When I was a PFC in the Army he took me on a tour of the Operations Center. I guarantee if he were alive today he would be furious at being on the end of Trump's comment about POWs...and so the real point is this - if you think splitting the vote will make you feel more comfortable just wait until the caca hits the fan if Trump is elected because of it.
You never replied to my first comment on your idiocy, but have since called me ignorant regarding Manitou Springs and TABOR, and you've called the City Council in Manitou Springs greedy. Fine. If the City Council there is greedy then why do things keep moving in that direction? Is it because the voters there may be re-electing greedy people, or is there an underlying economic reason requiring more revenue? I recently saw the 'roundabout' at a previously unmanageable intersection and though it to be well designed and a needed improvement. Maybe they just need the money and can't raise the revenue the normal way thanks to TABOR.
The truth is this - TABOR stinks. Cronyism is still alive in the political world with regard to development/developers, and TABOR couldn't reign that in. Colorado's infrastructure has gone to hell in a hand basket thanks to lack of revenue and spending continues to increase in other areas deemed 'more important' by lawmakers. Colorado's once great school system is unbalanced with regard to how it is funded and you keep on keeping' on the TABOR train.
Big accident on Research this morning. Any surprise? I had a gun pulled on me on Research a month ago for passing a guy that was stopped at a red light. To the five bicyclists that use Research a day, do you really think by creating more road rage you will feel safer?
It is a delicious irony that you cite a Kennedy as having "the strongest arguments" against physician assisted suicide. I suspect the Kennedy family is a full spectrum away from your personal political positions. Politics aside, though, her husband never really answered to the family of Mary Jo Kopechne about the circumstances of her demise. That would make it awkward in my view for the senator's widow to advise anyone on the matter at hand.
Notwithstanding Kennedy politics and a mysterious fatal accident, the Kennedys, including, presumably the late senator's widow, are Roman Catholics. For them, suicide in any context is a mortal sin for which one will burn in hell for eternity. Mrs. Kennedy can hardly be considered a neutral or unbiased source.
I read the article. Mrs. Kennedy says:
"Kennedy argues that everyone wishes for a “good and happy death.” But passage of Question 2, she said, would not grant death with dignity, but would rob people of precious time with friends and family."
I can't help but wonder how Ms. Koepechne's family feels about that statement. They were robbed of "precious time" with their loved one. They never got the truth from Senator Kennedy. That the widow of the driver of the vehicle in the fatal crash is now preaching about how we should die is both hypocritical and insensitive..
Mr. Mckeown - the old north end, who are connected, are having cascade by CC brought down to one lane "for safety concerns".
You make an excellent point about there being a whole bunch of meetings to 'listen', community input committees padded with the Mayor minons and PR specialists who 'collect' ideas and concerns that do nothing other than claim the citizens were involved while the plans are laid, the concerns not addressed and we are told you had your chance because there were meetings.
I do like the idea of the Trolley down Nevada and into OCC and Manitou.
I applaud you for your foresight in not buying a home on a major corridor (Colorado Ave.), if the types of things you are griping about bother you. But why did you decide to buy a home on another major corridor (Nevada Ave.)? I think the Old North end is beautiful, and I like the nice raised medians. I also like the mixed use along Colorado Ave, as it benefits the side streets in the rest of the neighborhood, even if it makes the main corridor less picturesque. I'm not sure whether the city's plans for Nevada are the right thing to do or not, as there are advantages and disadvantages, but I am sure your letter is a NIMBY letter.
She only mentions Spanish-Colonial Art. What about all of the Native American & other southwest pieces?
I wasn't trying to convince you. I want to show people how dangerous this bill is. Massachusetts had the same bill 4 years ago and the voters defeated it.
One of the strongest arguments put forward then was by Ted Kennedy's widow, who called this kind of bill "cruel.". Here it is:
This happened today at Northglenn High School. 09/29/2016. I confronted one of the men about my concerns as a parent and how they hang around a school and give out bibles. I told them it's not right that they hand out anything without a parent's approval. I wasn't there to agree to it, so they are in the wrong. I'm very angry that they reserve the right to hand out anything. For all we know one of these men may be a pedophile. Seriously, how do we know? It's how us parents view this. We have to protect our children from everything and for these men to put fear into the parent's eyes and showing us that anyone can do this outside of school grounds is concerning that the state and federal government are letting this happen. Isn't there such a thing as 'Parent's Rights'?
If you give someone a gun and a map of a jewelry store with instructions on how to rob it, you are as guilty as the person who performs the physical act.
If a doctor gives someone a poison with instructions on how to take it, that is being a party to the act of killing a human being.
By the way, calling them "pharmaceuticals" is not honest.
Where is the money coming for all these bike lane improvements? I wish they would fix the roads so they were in a decent and safe condition to begin with before they start adding perks for bicycles. There is just too much traffic and too many unmaintained roadways to expect there to be warm and fuzzy feelings for drivers towards cyclists. It is difficult enough navigating the roadways without having to watch for people weaving around on bikes on major roads.

Terrible idea and here is why traffic will get heavier, more accidents not to mention we are a state with season, when it rains or snows I dont see bikes. Also there is a side walk on both sides of the street for walkers and bikers alike. Sorry but there are more vehicles being driven at one time then bikes.
Love this man and I love his work. Congrats! Well done!
say what you need to say BUT OBEY THE TRAFFIC LAWS!!!! ON A BIKE IT IS JUST LIKE A CAR...OBEY THE LAWS!!!!!!!
Insurance company scare tactics are alive and well...
