Re: “UPDATE: Save Cheyenne raises money to challenge Strawberry Fields land deal

Heaven help us all Joel, when money trumps a principle. Appreciate the reality check, but faith trumps both. And being on the right side doesn't hurt either :)
Denying people the right to vote just because you want to win is a LOSER.

Re: “UPDATE: Save Cheyenne raises money to challenge Strawberry Fields land deal

I appreciate what Joel Miller is saying. At the same time, I believe that attitude of powerlessness that has crept into everyday American life is what has caused many of the problems we face. I have seen too many people make a difference to believe that.

Re: “Western Museum cuts ties with Haunted Mines after 10 years

After 8 years with the original Haunted Mines crew in a leading staff position, and after 6 years with the museum, also in a leadership position - I second Mr Ducote's comment.

Look at it for the statement it is.

Would WMMI seperate themselves from the donations given by past and present HM volunteers for anything less than a very serious problem with the current Haunted Mines management?

The answer is no.

There is a reason WMMI was willing to forego a donation like that. There is little HM can say in defense.

The management and their treatment of WMMI staff and property over the last two years was attrocious. I have first hand experience and evidence of such.

As far as volunteers leaving due to Angel's 'high standards', that is simply laughable. Angel purged the professional team who built Haunted Mines, and she now sees the consequences.

Re: “UPDATE: Save Cheyenne raises money to challenge Strawberry Fields land deal

The unfortunate reality is that this group will face an opponent in court who has a virtually unlimited supply of taxpayer cash to fight them. The City has never just said, "forget it...we're out of money to fight this legal battle." This is especially true when the Anschutz Corporation is firmly in the City's corner as they are the beneficiaries of the transfer.

Re: “UPDATE: Parks benefit Colorado Springs economically, study shows

Wow, another study presented that a tax increase will give everybody a raise. Unfortunately studies like these are used over and over and reach the same result those who commission them want with little or no realistic counter point or analysis of the alternative. They get rolled out every time there is a scheme to get voters to intentionally part with more of their money. How much money and staff time was spent developing this marketing tool for another tax increase? Imagine if these same bureaucrats, whose issues are almost always rubber stamped by a compliant City Council were allowed to hike taxes without a vote. Whatever anyone wants to say about Douglas Bruce, TABOR is the only thing between us and California-style runaway taxes. We have high sales tax here, but we can only blame ourselves for voting to do it to ourselves.

The CORA denial is ridiculous. There is no applicable denial under the law because the report is in "draft."

Re: “PPACG executive and senior staff on indefinite leave

Not a surprise. I worked there for 5 years as lead ombudsman. I told Rob MacDonald that a current supervisor told me "I wasn't as smart as a man" and gave me a bad review and denied a raise, after 5 years of incredible reviews. Rob did nothing and I had to contact lawyers for what i deemed sexism. The Administration here is awful.

Re: “Wommack's pathway to prominence

I am so thankful for Andrew Wommack and his boldness to speak the truth in love. I listen to him daily and I do not pay a thing for it. Having said that, I tithe to my local church...but I am being led to give offerings to this awesome ministry that God is blessing so obviously. I totally believe his testimonies about supernatural provision such as gas in his tank. I have had miracles such as this myself. But then, I believe God's Word and it operates by our faith. I know that is challenging for you that don"t live by faith but you will have to take that up with God. He is your real issue here, not Andrew. God Bless this ministry in 2017 as I know He is. We love you Andrew.

Re: “Inmates riot over food

The county jail is a shit hole, filled with corrupt, and ego driven staff, black mold, shit food, and mice feces in the kitchen. How this place hasn't been shut the hell down is beyond me. Somehow this crap gets swept under the rug year after year. Never mind all that though, they'll just make it bigger, as they plan to do in the near future, which is only going to make these conditions worse because they barely have enough funding to keep the current configuration operating smoothly. The new Sheriff is as bad as Maketa for letting this shit continue imho. Instead he'd rather get his 15 mins of fame for dancing in an elevator. Dumb ass.

Re: “LGBTQ community allies show support

I am disappointed with the democrat party I have been associated with and voted
For My Entire adult Life. The dem party at least as the COS INDY portrays it- stands for nothing but hormone therapy for pre pubescent teens with gender confusion. Shame the f-*** on you- i don't think 7 year olds have a damn clue who they are- I am going to withdraw myself from
The dem party- or at least
This shitty newspaper- if this is all they can focus on

Re: “Will voters be allowed to decide on parks funding?

Since there are 4 of six district Council members running for re-election, they can only advocate for so many tax increases without risking a response from voters tired of tax and spend practices. All but Helen Collins advocated for the $250 million road tax increase.

A new park tax would be a total dupe like nearly every other "only for this" tax increase. How many times will taxpayers be lied to by politicians? In the last voter-approved change to TOPS in 2013, Council refused to a include "maintenance of effort" clause so the existing parks maintenance budget would not be supplanted by the increase from TOPS tax due to the change. Unbelievably, immediately after promising not to do so, Council did exactly that before the vote even passed--and reduced the general fund commitment to parks by $500,000 in the 2013 budget. The Trails and Open Space Coalition caved on that issue just as they did on Stawberry Fields.

Revenues have recovered from 2008, but parks budgets have not even come close to what they were. Why? Because the City continues to spend money on other things like...City for Champions infrastructure and siphoning of City-collected taxes to the Urban Renewal Authority (URA). URA funding takes City sales and property taxes that would otherwise go to the general fund for things like roads and park maintenance and instead diverts those funds to provide direct corporate welfare to developers. Council approved 2 new URA agreements in the last year to the tune of tens of millions and will likely soon approve another for City for Champions. Yet there is no outrage for this practice by the likes of the TOSC...they simply believe that we just need to pay more taxes and trust a pinky promise that new funds won't get shifted or result in a decrease in City general fund commitments. Then, at the end of the ten-year "sunset" period, when the general fund is providing next to nothing to parks and what was being spent on parks has been shifted to other corporate welfare expenditures, we will hear screams from City hall that we can't afford for the ten-year tax to sunset because the parks will have NO funding if it does.

Besides the unaccountable "road tax" that has rewarded political donors in an unprecedented political payback scheme, the current administration is pondering unilaterally reinstating a stormwater tax, asking for a 100% increase to LART taxes, going in debt for City for Champions, promising City tax funding for C4C infrastructure without a vote of the citizens and now a .1 or .2 cent park tax too. When is enough going to be enough? And what faith was shown when a referendum-directed purchase of park land gets transferred to one of the City's biggest cronies for business development? Just say no.

In much the same way that refusing money to a drug addict to provide a fix is essential to prevent enabling the habit, a resounding no vote will break the addiction of politicians to ever-increasing taxes and squandering of existing taxes.
