Re: “Strawberry Fields in Cheyenne Cañon is on the table for a swap with The Broadmoor

ALL THANKS TO DR WILLIAMS FOR CURING ME FROM A DEADLY DISEASE HEPATITIS B.
Appreciation is the key to doing more that is why I have took some
time out to thank some one who cured me of my 2 years HEPATITIS B
problem. It became a major problem to me as it was affecting my
marital life and I was no longer comfortable so I decided to look for
a solution and I came across a post of Dr willaims and how he has been
helping people of the same problem I contacted him and told him all I
have been facing in my life. He told me how to get his product and how
to take it after every thing I find out that all was now okay with me
and that my HEPATITIS B problem was gone that is why I have come out
today to say thank you to him . his email address drwilliams098765@gmail.com for advice and for his product

Re: “U.S. Olympic Museum wants money from Colorado Springs

I hardly think investing in an Olympic Museum is something the city of Colorado Springs should be expected to pay for. We have bigger issues to concern ourselves with.

Re: “Downtown Colorado Springs on a roll

"Nationally, trends show more people want to live and work in an urban environment. With our cost of living and proximity to the outdoors, Downtown Colorado Springs is perfectly poised for this growth."

Except Colorado Springs isn't very urban, so stating that it is 'perfectly poised', is a bit of a stretch.

Re: “Hickenlooper: Mentally ill shouldn't go to jail

What does the governor or a police officer know about brain disorders, medications and diagnosing a patient? Anyone who self-medicates can wind up in prison very easily except the law calls it "drug abuse". The agency that runs the medical industry is not made up of physicians but rather DEA agents. Every doctor that writes prescriptions to patients must pay a yearly fee to the DEA for a permit. Many cannot get medications because doctors are in fear of the DEA. In fact most people in this country fear law enforcement and the court system and that is not a healthy situation but the War on Drugs must continue. We must not have negative thoughts either the story states and it has been stated over and over since the 1970's self-help book craze. That it is completely wrong is something quack therapists and hippie mystics cannot admit.
Also there is no such thing as "mental illness". Where or what is your mental? How does it become ill???

The governor is trying to avert attention away from the continuous sub-standard treatment of inmates and especially now with the Fremont County Sheriff's blatant disregard for prisoners and the private for-profit company that enables abuse at his jail. Now that an inmate who could not make bail, was not convicted of any crime yet was imprisoned then denied his medication ( Klonopin) and ended up dead. The private company stated the jail is a "narcotic free zone". Klonopin is for anxiety is not a narcotic it is a benzodiazepine. But to supply an inmate with anything is a profit loss. Stopping any benzodiazepine causes withdrawals and apparently as with the deceased inmate it also causes contusions and numerous broken ribs. The Sheriff did not order an investigation of the death and now the Federal government is taking it to trial and likely the sheriff will become an inmate.

This is all stemming from the amateurish antics of the untrained spewing out their ignorance of medicine. Right here we were told how anxiety is "cured" by "no more negative thoughts" and painting pictures! How dare you print such rubbish! Talk about stigmatizing something! How about focusing on your readership which is the left and their anger issues and their being in denial? Which by the way, anger is a normal human emotion and how it has become almost a crime can be traced right back to the "for profit = kickback" court system which touts itself as the best in the world-sentencing people to bogus anger management classes. Again utter claptrap but people are believing it because it is repeated often enough.

Try researching before writing and if not then write about sidewalks or write how to write about sidewalks. Or perhaps take a lesson from Hazelhurst who can write about anything as long as it involves mentioning his house on the West Side. He might write as though his brain is abnormal but his diagnosis no doubt will be alcoholism, a.k.a. "self-medicating". Oh yeah, it is okay to be negative about Doug Bruce for decades right?

Re: “U.S. Olympic Museum wants money from Colorado Springs

Curious:

Having watched this current administration and their handlers, it would not be surprising to be receiving news that 'Colorado Springs has a shot at an NFL expansion team' in order to justify a stadium!

Re: “U.S. Olympic Museum wants money from Colorado Springs

It's long been apparent that there is not enough private investment money available to make the Olympic Museum a reality. But what about its proposed next door neighbor, the stadium cum event center? There is not one dollar of private money to invest in this giveaway to Jenkins. In order to build the stadium that Jenkins and City Leaders want, the citizenry, without their consent, will be compelled to pay for it. There's no other possibility. It astonishes me that mayor Suthers supports building this useless/worthless stadium just because developer Jenkins wants it to be built in order to maximize profits on the sale of his 19 or more properties in the area.

Just read in the Gazette that there are 300 dead trees on the list for removal from COS streets and NO MONEY available to remove them. But mayor Suthers and developer Jenkins intend to use taxpayer dollars to build a $300M stadium to "revitalize" downtown. COS has a lot of legitimate needs for which tax dollars are needed, but a STADIUM is not one of them. How to stop this crazyiness?

Re: “U.S. Olympic Museum wants money from Colorado Springs

Have not looked at all the figures but if one were to have in hand all the sales and property tax revenue given away to 'encourage' development - - would there be enough money to pay for stormwater and catch up on pensions?

Re: “U.S. Olympic Museum wants money from Colorado Springs

They are also lying on the application. The $26 million in debt that the application claims is a done deal depends on the City providing or finding $130 to build and finance the infrastructure for the museum. Wait for that one--commitment is due by March.

Re: “U.S. Olympic Museum wants money from Colorado Springs

Well- there probably won't be a citizen discussion...the LART Committee (chaired by Nor'wood Exec Fred Veitch--remember this whole thing is a Nor'wood concoction in land controlled by Nor'wood) will send a recommendation to Council and they will quietly approve/disapprove of the item on the "consent calendar" unless someone takes the time to track the issue and determine which meeting the item will have the item and call it off of the consent calendar at the appropriate time--Bennett will give one millisecond for that to happen. There has been a proposal and yet another taxpayer funded study recommending doubling or more of the existing LART tax.
