Re: “"Chard Skorman" for Council?

Funny how people can get a nicknames. Chard is definitely Richard's--and a pretty cool one at that. My thought was to put white quotation marks on the "Chard" and go with it. Good for buzz...

Re: “Venetucci family member issues plea for farm

As one of the many relatives of Nick Venetucci and Louie Pinello I wholeheartedly agree with many of the statements that Mary made. Much The same thing has happened to the Pinello Ranch. Which is next door to the Venetucci Farm. Where once deer came to feed on the corn stubble you now see heavy equipment moving the earth. The water rights are what made the land so valuable and the City of Colorado wanted the water. Yes people and organizations have tried to keep the ranch in good repair but it has to be a labor of love for the land. Grandpa Louie and Grandma Jessie raised their family there and I was blessed to grow up on the land earning a healthy respect for what it takes to be a rancher or farmer.
Sincerely
Billie Goodwin
Granddaughter of Louie and Jessie Pinello.

Re: “Prosecutor stuck with lifetime debt for collecting pension

This is a classic example of El Paso Countys infamous diversion tactic! A classic example of a retiree, in this case, getting screwed by El Paso County. Its a County Retirement Plan anyone in their right mind would expect that the Commissioners would have some oversight of that plan, but yet Commissioner Littleton plays the typical no one told me card and County Attorney Amy Folsom, a woman who should not have a license to practice law, plays interference for the Commissioners because she has no other real value; just like her girlfriend Diana May. Nevertheless, where is the accountability? Again, its an El Paso County Retirement Plan and our sleazy Commissioners dont have oversight? No one is being educated on how the plan works? Something isnt making sense there!

We all know that CFAO Nicola Sapp has her hands in the Retirement Plan. Will she be held accountable for this major flaw? Could this be another example of her stupidity and evidence of being unqualified for a CFAO job? What the heck is going on with El Paso County? No retiree should be faced with this! They shouldnt get railroaded by a retirement plan put in place through the government entity for which they devoted years of their lives.

Oh my word, we have a dirty Sheriff and Undersheriff, a dirty District Attorney, sexual predators in the workplace, people in jobs for which they are not qualified, and a board full of dirty Commissioners led by none other than Darryl Short Short Man Glenn. No wonder this County is a laughing stock!

Re: “Reader: Doug Lamborn, you're totally out of touch with your constituents

I detest the political parties and have cast more votes for third parties than the two mega parties. When I listen to NPR or watch PBS I see lapdogs for the left.

The Feds shouldn't be in the TV and radio business. There's plenty of support for these programs in the private sector, thus they will do just fine. The Feds can use that half a billion dollars for better things.

Re: “Pico gets CSF endorsement, developer donations

I'm sorry to see Mr. Pico succumbing to shadowy, developer money as he knows these same developers, most notably Nor'wood, want to change the Banning Lewis Ranch annexation agreement to put more of the development burden on the backs of the taxpayers. CSF's slate of candidates will not be the voice of us, the citizens, but the voice of irresponsible and greedy developers.

Re: “Reader: Doug Lamborn, you're totally out of touch with your constituents

Ben McFall - when was the last time you listened to NPR or watched PBS? I think your misconception may come from a stereotype held by the right. Also, Sesame Street is still on, along with other quality children's programs, that people can access without paying for a cable subscription.

Re: “Reader: Doug Lamborn, you're totally out of touch with your constituents

The bigger issue is all the Gerrymandering that has allowed Lamborn to be re-elelcted over and over. With nothing but using the Ben Franklin free mail he continues to never debate and wins his seat. For years I've heard how he needs to be voted out and for years I've voted against him and it shows how a group just votes for the R as in rather than for their own best interest.

Re: “Reader: Doug Lamborn, you're totally out of touch with your constituents

NPR and the like are nothing but left, liberal agenda spewing propaganda outlets. Nothing like they used to be in the Mr. Rodgers and Sesame Street days. Use a different example that matters with today's funding of these outlets if you want some balance in your statement.

Re: “Pico gets CSF endorsement, developer donations

Is 'Colorado Springs Forward' really significant or are they more like a flea floating down the river in 'an aroused state' shouting: "Raise the Drawbridge!"

Obviously he did not grow up watching Mr Rogers or Sesame Street. He knows nothing about keeping promises, being kind and compassionate or working with others.

Re: “Reader: Doug Lamborn, you're totally out of touch with your constituents

NPR chief fundraising coordinator says NPR would be better off without federal funding. So maybe the editor and chief along with journalists of this paper are the ones who are out of touch. In 2011 $50 mill was cut by a measure Senate passed. This isn't something new and you may well educate yourself on what popular vote really means. NPR has lost touch with the people and also not the best source for education. If a teacher has to use this instead of national geographic. We'll that's your first major issue. Teachers who shouldn't be teaching.

Was Lamborn not raised on Sesame Street, Electric Company and Mr. Rogers? PBS is the standard-bearer for educational television. I am proud to be a Sesame Street kid.

Of course NPR is distrusted among conservatives. They eliminate the smoke amongst the Conservative mirrors.
