Re: “City produces Acker settlement document

This whole debacle of the use of taxpayer funds to bankroll police abuse cases is part of the problem nation wide today. The city should not have paid for this obvious case of abuse. The officer should have paid, and his supervisors should have paid. And the remainder of funds should have come out of their pensions. We need to end the police union protection of the bad police by ending police unions and reinforcing the Public Service aspect of policing, not the self serving, "protect the police at all costs" attitude that prevails in some communities today. That must end.

Re: “Broadmoor makes move on city reservoir

Dont give our public & private lands to the Broadmoor! Our Mayor, and the owner of the Gazette, the Broadmoor,, AND 5,000 adjoining acres...are hiding the truth. Now they want MORE. There was NO VOTE to give our stunning Strawberry Fields parkland to the Broadmoor. Philip Anschutz & OUR Mayor DECIDED it was BEST for THEM. With unqualified appraisals, it was traded for worthless land 1 1/2 hours away. Have you seen the huge gates at 7 Falls? The public cant even drive in without taking a Broadmoor bus. They don't have OUR best interests in mind. They will LOCK US OUT. Demand transparency for our parks & water. Or let the Broadmoor take them away forever. Many are working to have a vote on this next April. Please See: SAVECHEYENNE.ORG

Re: “FAC merger, 2C spending, bus schedule changes, and more

City leadership is either crooked or clueless. Not only are the potholes GETTING WORSE--- the malarkey "City For Chumps" is proceeding at record pace-
The entire construction zone between 8th street on 24 and the 25 interchange is a disaster. You dang near need an MSHA certification, hard hat and orange vest to drive through it.

Too bad Joel Miller was not elected as Mayor. We should probably go ahead and try and impeach someone, at least remind the bologna political class that we are maybe able to assert a bit of power? We sure could use leaders like Brandi Williams back in office- we have a lot of great opportunities- how fun is it to imagine who could replace Lamborn? so fun....

Re: “Springs shows up for racial justice, answering national call-to-action

Despite all their posturing and self-ascribed good intentions, SURJ is nothing more than another pack of racists. The very idea of separating people and placing different responsibilities on one racial group over another smacks of South African apartheid. The problems we have are not "white people problems," "black people problems," or "brown people problems." They are PEOPLE problems, and this finger-pointing mob is not helping.

Re: “Looking toward permanent sustainable funding for city parks

TOPS is flawed. What kind of land acquisition program fails to consider future maintenance and upkeep? Time to take TOPS back to the drawing board before it bankrupts us all to pay for its own shortcomings.

Re: “UPDATE: Anschutz in bed with anti-LGBT forces

Who actually gives the SPLC, who in reality is a liberal hate group, any credibility anyway? They list someone as a hate group if they look at them cross-eyed.

Nevermind. The answer to the question is liberal kooks.

Re: “Looking toward permanent sustainable funding for city parks

"Let's establish a funding mechanism for permanent dedicated sustainable funding for our parks system."

That's code for more taxes, y'all.

"Colorado Springs ranks in the bottom third of Front Range cities for parks land per person."

Acreage per person is irrelevant. Colorado Springs has a jeweled necklace of great parks: Palmer Park, Ute Valley Park, Bear Creek, Red Rock Canyon, Monument Valley, and of course Garden of the Gods, with plenty of smaller and pocket parks all over town.

If the goal is to preserve and protect our parks, then the Council simply needs to address it in the budget better. That's on them, not on the taxpayers.

Re: “Iconic movie mixes nostalgia with history

"I was a snobby 12-year-old..."

And now you're a snobby 76 year-old. Haven't learned a thing, have you, Hazy-hurts?

Only a true schmuck like you could segue from a classic movie like Singing in the Rain to racism.

Why don't you enjoy the movie for what it is, and take your race-baiting with you somewhere else where less-evolved people drink that crap up?

Oh, wait, that place is your liberal Utopiaville...

Re: “FAC merger, 2C spending, bus schedule changes, and more

Tom DeLorey: Doug Bruce and Helen Collins warned you about this. They were right.

David Johnson: see what Tom DeLorey was asking about.

Don McCullen: why so obsessed about voyeurism in bathrooms unless you're the one doing it? If you're so obsessed about sexualizing bodily functions, then only go to the bathroom in your home--where the bathroom is already transgender whether you like it or not. Just remember to put the seat down when you're done.

Re: “Broadmoor makes move on city reservoir

Bob: As long as the GOP runs COLO SPGS and El Paso County all that citizens can do is bend over. The GOP and the billionaires who own them consider anything within our national borders as theirs to play with and do with as they choose. The GOP will sell your city out from under you.

Re: “Commentary: CSPD operates under a veil of mystery

quote: ""I'm proud of our relationship with the community," Carey said."

this guy is soooo stupid he doesn't even realize THERE IS NO RELATIONSHIP...people in this town hate C.S.P.D. we had to pass conceal carry just so we could feel safe here. the police lie on reports and false report to their commanding officers, when they are caught doing wrong they get "now don't do that again" the police force here in Colorado HAS NO OVERSITE they can do what they want when they want. the state doesn't even have a department that over see local law enforcement.

Re: “FAC merger, 2C spending, bus schedule changes, and more

Tom and David. West Uintah drivers worry about a DUI for dodging craters. But the new gutters sure look nice. The city wants to extend Centenial. But before they do maybe they should take care of the one they have. We west siders are buying up moon rovers just to get home.

Re: “Broadmoor makes move on city reservoir

I opposed the land swap because I thought it set a very bad precedent for more public land to be taken, and now this on it's heels. When do we just say "NO"?
