Re: “Utilities workers pick Colorado Springs City Council candidates

Helen Collins is the polar opposite of Jill Gaebler and Richard Skorman. I'm ready for her to step down and hopefully that will open an opportunity for someone to take that seat who actually votes for the good of the people, not just vote no to vote no. Plus she's got good ol' Doug Bruce in her ear. Good riddance!

Re: “Reader: Spare us from a Robert Dear execution trial

Yes, of course and certainly a fair trial. But a costly death penalty trial should not be pursued; rather life in prison without possibility of parole, as the letter-writer recommends.

Re: “Utilities workers pick Colorado Springs City Council candidates

Glad to see the Utilities workers endorse Gaebler and Skorman. I would add Helen Collins to the list, as well.

Re: “Ex-El Paso County commissioner finds new government job, for now

Well the Work Force Center at least gave someone a high paying job. What is its overall record? Boondoggle or godsend?

Re: “Trash and trash-talking derail community conversation about homelessness

Looking at this from a sociological standpoint, it almost seems reflective of society as a whole. A quick trip to any of Colorado's outdoor wonders will show you the same thing. Some visitors are meticulous with clean up leaving barely a footprint, others are content to unload any and all of their worldly detritus around seemingly to remind everyone they were there. On one outing this summer to guffy gorge [paradise cove] I found bottles [not unexpected] two spent diapers, at least 10 dog poop bags [still confused why you would take the time to bag it but then leave it] a car battery, a host of lotto tickets and a condom wrapper. I seriously doubt those were left by a group of roving homeless looking to cliff dive. Maybe society just needs a refresher course on how to treat the outdoors.

As for not having the resources to provide sanitation services on trails or supply more housing, I totally understand. Its not like Colorado has some cash crop we could sell recreationally in this city that would generate supplemental tax dollars... [yes I made the obligatory - "why the heck doesnt Colorado Springs follow the will of the voters and allow retail marijuana sales?!? "] I understand there are no easy answers but that doesn't mean we shouldn't try.

Apologies in advance for any grammar or spelling errors, I am typing this on my phone and haven't had my coffee yet.

PBS and NPR soiled their own nest by becoming politically biased.

Re: “Casting Spells

My name is NICOLE from USA. I am here to give testimony on how I got my husband back, my husband left me for no reason months ago. He moved in with another woman, I felt like killing myself, my life became very bitter and sorrowful. Then one day a friend of mine told me about a great spell caster that is very good and she said that he told her all about her life history and the problem she is facing, i didn't believe it because I've worked with so many of them and it didn't work. She begged me further so I decided to try this great spell caster called Great Dr BEN . I still didn't believe but inside me i wanted to give a try and as God will have it i used the spell solution he gave me and the next day and I really received a call from my darling husband, He apologized and came back to me. I'm very happy now with my family it worked for me and i believe it will work for you, give him a try and follow up, this is a clear truth from a testifier. Thank you Dr BEN once again, if you want to reach him via website http://benherbaltemple.webs.com email: benherbaltemple@gmail.com or call him on +1(310) 220-0075

Re: “Reader: I am ashamed of Rep. Doug Lamborn

PBS owns the rights to a lot of good shows. No reason they couldn't be profitable on their own. As for the radio, radio is dead and they could broadcast on the Internet for a LOT cheaper. Crap kids that still live with thier parents can pull off podcasting... Please. Get real people. This is NOT a travesty.

Re: “UPDATE: CSPD cop's letter says department is a mess

The Chief is a good man who has to answer to the Mayor and City Council. When a large percentage of the City's budget has to fund the storm water project due to previous neglect/negligence, services/departments such as the PD & FD suffer. The Citizens in-turn receive less than sufficient service. Voice your concerns to your elected officials, they're are responsible and to blame. The Chief can only squeeze so much blood from the turnip.

Re: “EPCSO's Special Investigations Fund audited by Department of Justice

Good point, however Nicola Sapp, the uneducated and unqualified Chief Financial and Administration Officer of El Paso County should be held accountable too. As the CFAO, she is the gatekeeper of all things financial for El Paso County to include the Sheriff's Office. What disciplinary measures will she face? This falls on her shoulders too.

Re: “UPDATE: CSPD cop's letter says department is a mess

Only TWO killed by the CJC staff? I scoff at that low a number. And they have the Blue Lives Matter campaigning to legalize Execution by Cop, without trial, nationwide. I know several deputies who will be jumping with glee if the already stiff protections for Killer Kops get even more pronounced. Talk back to a pig and die. The Kounty Kangaroo Kourts already uphold that standard.
