Re: “Darryl Glenn regains memory of assault charge, sort of

I don't think, and you don't think, and I don't think anybody else thinks that Bennet had anything to do with the INDY'S reporting of this story, which first appeared in the Denver Post. The neutral and unbiased Post even had a hand writing expert look at the 18-year-old Glenn's signature on a form in an attempt to blow up this molehill into a mountain. Knowing, as we all do, how politicians running for office will dump dirt on their opponents, it does lead even the most casual of observers to wonder if maybe, just possibly, hard as it is to believe, that Bennet, Glenn's opponent in the U.S. senate race, had something to do with bringing this "bombshell" story to the public's attention. Now there's an angle worth investigating.

Re: “Darryl Glenn regains memory of assault charge, sort of

The first comment tries the deflection game. Ignore the issue and praise Glenn while ignoring his repeated lies and deception on the issue at hand. Even Glenn's belated admission is self serving and lacking in total honesty. He would have us believe he ended up in a judge's chamber with his mom with no prior contact with law enforcement. He savages his father just like he savaged his step brother in one of his earlier lies. Remember the charges were also dropped with his father. He keeps digging a deeper hole for himself

Re: “Darryl Glenn regains memory of assault charge, sort of

I though his statement said the charges were dropped immediately , 2 months is not immediately. And I think if I assaulted my father and was charged I would remember lol Keep digging that hole .

Re: “Darryl Glenn regains memory of assault charge, sort of

Curious, Sen. Michael Bennet has had nothing to do with our reporting on this incident. We simply looked up Glenn's record and then dug deeper.

Re: “Darryl Glenn regains memory of assault charge, sort of

Don't believe Glenn for a second. The record pretty much disproves him.

Darryl Glenn is Ed Jones v2.0, but with a better script, more rehearsal, and just as much political failure.

P.S. He had a TS clearance in the AF, so he has been fingerprinted.

Re: “Darryl Glenn regains memory of assault charge, sort of

It is amazing that both the Indy and the Gazette are digging for the "truth" about an incident that happened 32 years ago, when Glenn was 18. In that incident, in order to stop his father from beating his mother, Glenn may have hit him in the face Or he may not have - his father dropped the charge 2 months later. And why should Glenn remember the details about this particular incident, one of many that occurred in his often violent home life. Living with a physically abusive father and attempting to protect one's mother from harm is something children and young adults try hard to forget.

Despite the harrowing circumstances of his childhood home life, it is admirable that Glenn has succeeded in putting his past behind him and making his life one of accomplishment - a life that would make any father proud.

Learning about this long ago event, my respect for Glenn has gone up several notches from an already high degree of respect. Wanna bet that his U.S. Senate challenger - Michael Bennett - is involved in this attempt to smear Glenn?

Re: “Caffeine Crawl returns to Springs/Denver

Matthew, thanks for the coverage, man. We're looking forward to this event, and love that Colorado Springs has become an annual event joining FoCo, Boulder and Denver. Actually to expand on the local money part, the Caffeine Crawls increase tourism, and bring people into that Crawl host city for the weekend. I know off the top of my head there's someone from San Diego, Kansas City, a few from Wyoming, and certainly others from Northern Colorado that have already purchased tickets. Like us they'll be spending dollars in the Springs on room and board, food, gifts and all that good stuff. Plus, Sadie, who is 1 of 2 full time people in our small company, lives in Colorado. Really appreciate the write-up, and we'll be sure to give the city lots of love when in town!!! Cheers ~ Jason with Caffeine Crawl

Re: “Heading for the DNC in Philadelphia

Mike --

Hope to see you here in Philly, where my wife is a Hillary delegate and I'm hoping all the delegates remember the lesson of 1787: the need to compromise in pursuit of the greater good!

Re: “Venetucci Farm suspends sales until water tested

"To connect people with causes that matter by advancing philanthropy, creating legacies, and fostering community stewardship." That is the mission statement of the Pike's Peak Community Founation.

Venetucci Farm is a legacy that fosters community stewardship - plain and simple. The farm was deeded to the Foundation *to be a legacy in the community*. It is a living, breathing example of this mission statement come to life.

Closing the farm is a disaster. If the board members of the Foundation do not reopen this farm, they are showing the public that they are quite obviously ill-equipped to make good decisions with large amounts of donated money.

I hope that large-fund donors to the Foundation are paying attention to this situation.

Re: “Broadmoor makes move on city reservoir

Once again an entity of the city of Colorado Springs is in secret negotiations with the Broadmoor. Why would the city want to sell its water rights to the Broadmoor? Selling to another public utility? Yes. Selling to a private individual? No. If Bob Issac hadn't pushed in 1979 for incorporating the Broadmoor into the city and purchasing Rosemont from the Broadmoor, would we be having this conversation? If Anschutz gets his way will CSU sever service to the Broadmoor? Why continue it?

Is CSU following the philosophy of Parks & Recreation? If CSU can't maintain Rosemont get rid of it? What do the rate payers get out of this deal? Shouldn't it be up to the ratepayers to decide to sell "their" assets? "When you need to sell assets, whether a individual, family, business, or government, you're in deep financial trouble." Does $2.5B qualify for "Deep financial trouble."

But let's cut to the quik. Sell the entire city to Anschutz since he's already nickel and diming the city administration, kicking Anschutz up a couple of notches of the "What individuals can own more land" category. The city government can be disolved and the city renamed Colorado Springs brought to you the Broadmoor, an wholly owned subsidiary of the Anschutz corporation. The city's perimeter can be fenced negating anymore fencing being built by the Broadmoor. Filling potholes and repairing bridges would not be high on his priorities.

The pesky city charter can be dispensed with along with mayor, city council, and staff. The police and fire departments can be contacted out. An Anschutz board can be appointed to oversee the daily operations. No more self-aggrandizement committees on what they think the city should be.

What would be upside of selling the city to Anschutz? No property and sales taxes because there would be NO city government. Anschutz can impose his morally bankrupt economic and political philosophy on those who are left. He wants a libertarian life style. Now's his chance. After a few years he can join the economic/political successes of Kansas, Indiana, and Wisconsin.

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

The his 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: “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: “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: “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.
