Re: “Air Force to UCCS? Concerns over a chancellor finalist

Interesting... It's pretty easy to "win people over" at USAFA when you outrank everyone and basically hold their career in your hands. You can make unilateral decisions (like decreasing the importance of academics cited above) and every will just salute smartly and say "great decision, general!" Not sure how that would go over at UCCS. Also interesting that she claims the unverifiable fact that she was offered a promotion and turned it down to stay at USAFA. Another alternative unverifiable fact is that she asked for a fifth year at USAFA and was turned down by the Pentagon. Might as well mention that as long as we're throwing around "alternative facts." Finally, her commitment to high quality education isn't that difficult to measure. During her tenure at USAFA, she's moved to decrease graduation academic requirements, cutting core courses (gen ed requirements) like English, Physics, Chem, and Engineering from the core curriculum while also cutting admin support (all but four dept secretaries are gone, down for 20 academic depts) in order to staff her public affairs machine that makes her look good (along with a new $360K office foyer) and spins her narrative. I half want to see her get this job, but only out of morbid curiosity.

Re: “New role for Cole with GOP

Someone should look into his newest "Employer". Woodmen Hills Metropolitan District. There is some shady stuff going on over there. He just walked into a legal nightmare. Unless he's hoping to benefit from the skimming that's going on?

Venkat Reddy is the obvious choice to replace Zalabak.

Re: “Driver in fatal crash was 'racing' for a parking space, police said

The other incidents were pedestrians clearly in the cross walk, with the right of way. In this case, as Dan May pointed out, Mel was jaywalking - not in the right of way.

Re: “Food truck cook-off starts Small Business Week off on a tasty note

The venders need to be better prepared. With like 300 servings ready to go as opposed to starting to cook when everyone gets there. The lines were horrendous last year.

Each one of them that used mustard needs to leave it to taster to add. (most of you were heavy handed with it).

Re: “Driver in fatal crash was 'racing' for a parking space, police said

It sure does look like favoritism.
An explanation that a member of the DA's office was on hand from the beginning sure doesn't explain why others have been charged while this man has not.
I'm sure Dierdorff is remorseful but that doesn't change what feels like harsher charges for others.

Re: “Driver in fatal crash was 'racing' for a parking space, police said

So, what did the person in the vehicle directly behind Dierdorff, who he was "racing" for the parking space, say about the incident? Seems he would have had the best view of what happened.

Re: “I-25 Gap Coalition formed to spur widening project

And we need to lobby the General Assembly to re-up the State's Economic Development Commission corporate welfare program for the members of the coalition to receive millions in taxpayer subsidies so they can then convene a study that show raising taxes is the only way to get the project paid for.

Re: “George Winston denies 'father of new age' reputation

We would so disagree with your misnomer! You ARE the father of New Age Music. One does not need to be biologically involved to become a great dad... Thousands learned to love music through George Winston's December. Don't sell yourself short. You, your music and your purple socks are an amazing Treasure to Music itself!

Re: “I-25 Gap Coalition formed to spur widening project

Wait! Wait! We first need to waste $100 million on a couple studies that tell us what we already know. Then we need to find a contractor that will spend $500 million on 40 miles of pavement and four bridges.

Re: “Juniper Valley Ranch has a strong showing in 66th year

So what if they cannot spell "consume" or "consomme"? the writer called the area "red-dirt scrublands" when it is commonly referred to by us old-timers as the pinion-juniper country or "PJs" for short.
Highway 115 has a large population of deer and turkey so drive carefully especially at dusk. There have been an elk or two in the area as well.

Re: “Reader: Who cares how much taxes Trump paid!

I hope the guy paid nothing. That way everybody gets what they want. The social justice warriors can complain about him not paying his fair share, while the anti-tax folks can get lathered up about the sorry state of our income tax laws.
