Re: “On naked men: A love letter to the fig leaf

"Did you know that the Y required males to swim naked until the 70s? Man up."

Horse manure. Used to swim at the Y all the time. Never had to swim in the buff.

Re: “Stormwater measure draws $200K

20 years overdue and not only a safety and property damage issue, one that has cast the region in a bad light for those companies seeking to locate new facilities which could be job creators - there is time left to volunteer to help get the word out on the importance of this issue to the community. Passing this measure can be a step toward polishing the image of the gem which the Springs is! Volunteers are currently being accepted. No limit on hours.

Re: “Coyotes

I don't remember what you're supposed to do with small children offhand - with some animals, you are to hold the children above your head and make yourself look as large as possible. Check before you go out and know what to do. Be prepared.

And think about this: When I moved to CS 14 years ago, much of what is now on and directly east of Powers wasn't there. Just tumbleweeds and grass.

We're the new guys in the coyote's neighborhood, not the other way around.

Re: “Medical marijuana: The red card is dead

The new cards will have holograms, will glow under black lights, and be nearly impossible to tear?

That is awesome on so many levels.

Re: “Coyotes

Coyotes are not much to be worried about. Coywolves, now that's a different story. Google it.

Re: “On naked men: A love letter to the fig leaf

you could have NOT been in the armed forces. Or, for that matter, high school PE? Did you know that the Y required males to swim naked until the 70s? Man up.

Re: “A Parking Enigma

The more I think about it, the more I like the idea. Forget City of Champions----closing off Tejon (and make it from Vermijo to Platte instead of Bijou) would be very inexpensive, and it would have great benefits for the downtown scene. Tejon would be much more inviting for shoppers, eaters, and tourists.

Re: “A Parking Enigma

Here's a suggestion: close Tejon from Vermijo to Bijou. Make it a walking mall, like Pearl Street in Boulder.

Re: “A Parking Enigma

I won't go downtown to eat dinner, because parking is a pain. I don't like to pay for parking, and there are plenty of other places to eat in the city with free parking. Same goes for shopping.

Re: “Maggie's Farm does $2 million in marijuana sales in Manitou Springs

Manitou doesn't get all of the tax; 2.9% goes to the state, 1.23% to the county, etc. I'm sure somebody out there knows the exact rates for the extra marijuana tax (which probably goes to the state only) - I haven't been able to find it online.

Re: “Football and the 'endangered' list

There is an old joke that the Puritans banned bear baiting, not because it was cruel to animals, but because the people enjoyed it too much.

Re: “If you love rape, slaughter and slavery: Happy Columbus Day.

I admired your Denver-Pueblo analogy, Bryce, and the facts your article highlighted. I completely agree with Seattle renaming the holiday more fittingly but hold little hope of it happening locally. Denver, Pueblo, and Manitou Springs are different stories.

Re: “Against a downtown city stadium? Sign here

This city has been kidnapped by a corrupt government that will not follow the will of the people! Blocking legal pot sales in the city, giving away the city to the US Olympics and planning projects without any community input.

Re: “Coyotes

Don't leave any kind of dg or cat food out at night. Keep garbage inside except on trash day. Have motion sensor lights. Don't let small pets roam around outside alone.

The overwhelming majority of the time a coyote or fox will not approach a teen or adult human. If they do, there is a good chance there is something wrong with the animal, so it probably will need to be killed.

Chico, this doesn't provide money for any new parks. It merely improves and/or repairs existing properties.

Re: “Beer and wine dinners abound

Next one is in November -- they are having a s'mores beer course for dessert with three different flavored beers! It's a five course meal with each course getting its own specialty brewed beer match. Absolutely outstanding.

How did you miss The Local Relic's Beer Dinners? I just went last night, unmatchable and extraordinary experience!

Re: “Against a downtown city stadium? Sign here

A truly free, unregulated market creates both wealth and poverty. Periods of economic growth and prosperity regularly alternate with periods of poverty and destitution. The Great Depression of the 1930s followed the great prosperity of the Roaring 20s. And it was not a gradual process, which might have given people time to prepare, but came overnight with a sudden Stock Market Crash, much like George Bush junior's crash of 2008. (Which, by the way, the government could not manage to postpone until after the presidential election, even with all of its powers of intervention.)

The great lesson of the Great Depression is that the market needs to be regulated to smooth out the bumps, to keep the highs from getting too high and the lows from getting too low. The Bush junior administration, following the Libertarian philosophy, (and it is philosophy, not economics), failed to regulate new economic innovations while watering down existing regulations on traditional business practices, with the inevitable result that the economy crashed and people suffered.
