Re: “Noted: Glenn looking for public input for the county

Tom Tancredo is opposed ILLEGAl IMMIGRATION. Your article states "opposition to immigration". There is a difference between immigration and ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.

??? It's SDS, not SDI.

Your writing is impossible to understand.

Re: “Noted: News from the state races


SDI pipeline for the Big Play acrage. The original ranch was about 11000 a. Mobile Oil subsidiary bought up surrounding land and pasted it to 23,000 a. (same Mobile that ranked hotels for business aminities).
The water pipepline finance costs for $2.8 billion (2.8 x 1000 million) will now be increased upon the extended completion date of 2016 ? How much is the actual footage
to this genius award? How does this compare to latest Interstate footage construction cost? Do you now assume that the Reservoir level and the withdrawal allotment allowed will be as it is now for full pipe capacity use out to theoretic payback? Do you
now expect a population will exist that will qualify for Baning-Lewis mortage, sufficient number of contracts to cover water-demand = pipeline payback? Ecetera ?

SDI is a centralized dedicated scheme. Not flexible distribution. Not ready to perform.
Not meaningful for new industry. Not meaningful for smart transport.

Re: “Noted: Jerald Day pleads insanity

I knew Day and from what I know and remember of him is that he's a good guy going through tough times. I agree, he should be suspended with pay until he has his day in court. I have no idea on why Jerry flipped, but it is unusually usual for the Maketa Mafia to stand behind him. That's mighty chivalrous of Maketa. From what I understand Day was going through trouble well long before this last incident. Their is also the "suspicion" of the Maketa-Day connection...that could be! Just remember folks, Maketa is losing all the political friends he had, look at Newsome...yeah that was a good friend to stand by! As time passes, the truth will be revealed about a lot of things from within that Office since Anderson left. But by then, no one will care and it will be just another SNAFU day in El Paso County, Colorado.

Re: “Noted: Traffic cameras will start to issue tickets


I think I know why cameras are allowed: Politicians - and their extended families - are immune to the tickets.

For example, in California 1.5 million private cars have plate numbers protected from easy look up, making them effectively invisible to agencies trying to process red light camera violations. (In CA the list includes local politicians, bureaucrats, retired cops, other govt. employees, and their families and adult children!) Someone should check to see how many, and who, are on the list in Colorado.

You'd think that all that would be needed to fix this inequity would be for the persons requiring protection of their home address to file their work address as the place for their tickets to be mailed to. Indeed, until August, there was a bill (AB 2097) in the Calif. legislature to do just that. But the politicians killed it - their excuse was that the cost of the paperwork involved in gathering and computerizing the work addresses was too great.

I urge everyone, everywhere, to call their legislators, their media, and their auto club about this class immunity from the tickets. Otherwise, the bureaucrats and politicians will keep laughing at us as we pay our fines.

Re: “Early voting starts Monday

This article's sub-title is incorrect. It states: "Three locations available for beating the Nov. 4 rush" but actually the Election day is November 2nd. The editor should gets his eyes checked if you didn't even notice something that simple.

Re: “Noted: Sheriff sued by ACLU

Ed Billings Colorado Springs - Union Steward at King Sooper on Unitah

You should trade your on-line time attacking people for some volunteer time at The Marion House, or how about a little outreach. Instead you choose to verbally attack the CSPD HOT officer, Keep Colorado Springs Beautiful, the city council, and anyone who is involved with the homeless.

Re: “Noted: Sheriff sued by ACLU

That was a reply to the one at the bottom. As to a "strong mayor", considering the sheer number of Thieves who would apply for the job, like Doug Bruce, the proponent of the measure, the mathematical probability would work out to a certainty that within two decades a series of "strong mayors" would steal everything they haven't already stolen. Since there's nobody in City Politics who has a chance at being elected to any position, especially Mayor, without the backing of the Real Estate Developers and other local Houses of The Thieves Guild.

Re: “Noted: Sheriff sued by ACLU

Actually, that would be "homeless PEOPLE" who don't have to surrender their rights as citizens just because they're not in the Privileged Parasite Class.
I ride my bicycle because I can't drive, can't walk without a lot of pain, due to an on-the-job accident, and the pittance accorded to me by SSI doesn't cover the cost of a chauffeured limousine. That and I'm not "homeless". But thank you for your contribution to the mindset of Bigotry against those citizens, such as myself, who aren't Wealthy. Usually if I ride my bicycle downtown it's because I'm on my way to either my doctor or to my LANDLADY'S Doctor. Not that you would care, you're a card carrying member of the Anti-Working Class Jihad that infests the political arena in town here. (I checked)
Other people ride their bicycles because the bus service was cut drastically and they quite simply need to get to work on time so they can put money into the hands of the Wealthy Parasite Class.

Re: “Noted: Sheriff sued by ACLU

Does anyone realize that Bob Balink was Treasurer at Grace Episcopal Church when the Rev. Donald Armstrong was charged with using church funds for his own personal use (as in embezzlement)? The Armstrong case, by the way, has not yet gone to trial. And now Balink is running for city Treasurer. What's wrong with this picture?

Re: “Noted: Jerald Day pleads insanity

If I went in and applied for a postion in the jail and told them that I was pending several charges in anouther county to include waving a gun at officers I would be laughed at and kick out onto the street. He should still be suspended and if he is found not guilty then lift it. Untill that time he should not be workingfo EPSO at all. I would even be in favor of suspended with pay in this case. All deserve a day in court but if your actions are questionable then you should not be working in a jail. Maketa needs to wash his hands and drop this guy befor he drags him down with him.

Re: “Noted: Jerald Day pleads insanity

The fact that the Douglas County DA didn't want to plead down Day's case leads me to believe that he WILL do prison time. I don't think the "temporary insanity" plea is going to fly among intelligent (or at least halfway intelligent) jurors. And frankly, I hope he DOES do prison time. Otherwise, we'll have anarchy. (slight exaggeration there)
