The Broadmoor is becoming less and less an asset to the community and is not of much interest to any of us anymore.
It continues to wall itself off and isolate itself into the worst example of class division, with no consideration for the community...an institutional narcissism in which only their needs, like in this case, are being considered and the heck with anyone else.
More than that though is its interference in the community to stop us from having pleasurable things for those of us who were not born with big trust funds or struck it rich in some governmental or real estate scam...like their blocking a downtown convention center.
Blocking that street is an offense and inconvenience...but I bet Keith King has already made a deal during his fund raising in 80906 to do this.
If you live in Colorado Springs Senate District 11 and are dissatisfied with your Senator John Morse, please visit http://gotremorse.com/home/ for information about the effort to recall him. This recall simply allows the question to go directly to the voters. Does John Morse accurately represents your views? Please get active, and let your voice be heard.
"Green" energy is simply incapable of replacing oil, coal, gas and nuclear. It isn't developed to a commercial point and can only survive (and even then for only a short time) when the Government uses our tax dollars to subsidize it. For the life of me, I can't find the power to invest taxpayers' money in business anywhere in the Consitution.
crank - the quintessential purveyor of crapola on a stick. If you want to stop subsidies to oil companies, why don't you whine to your buddy Obama?
Let's review: Koch brothers are libertarians and George Soros is a communist/socialist.
If the Koch bros helped get Bach elected, Soros certainly helped Obama get elected. Who do you think is going to do more damage to our country?
The fight over Utilities is not over.
There is still an active study on when and how to decommission the Drake plant.
That study is where the impetus will be found for Mayor Botch's possible sale of CS Utilities, which is a serious goal for Mayor Botch's developer buddy Steve Schuck.
Stay tuned. Keep Pam on the trail of these schemers.
Council simply is doing the bidding of the Koch Bros.
For those who aren't aware of the Koch's, they've made fortunes in oil and coal and are just seeing to it that their fortunes grow - our city and it's people be damned. They are delaying the inevitable so they can protect their passe fossil fuel empires.
Koch money elected Mayor Botch, and Botch's buddy King is now pursuing a Koch agenda.
As far as subsidizing things, it's about time we stopped spending $4B of OUR tax dollars each year to subsidize an oil industry that made $140B in profits last year. How much is enough?
Excellent post Paul. When the government gets involved and spends our money on their pet cause of the hour we end up with fiascos like Solyndra. The government doesn't care. It isn't their money.
Not a sole is against solar, what they are against is subsidized solar! For over thirty years we have subsidized the solar programs from the Federal level on down and YES that is our money from the FEDS! If you want solar, then pay for it in full as an investor, place it on your house, business or buy it from a solar garden and reap the benefits from the investment that you made if there is one from KW not purchased from the local Not-for-Profit Citizen owned utility. Everyone points to the AFA and their new solar array that is saving them from PURCHASING KW from CSU, we are not rebating them money from our local utility for installing and maintaining this array! If the solar gardens (as a business) want to sell the KW produced then do it at the local cost to produce a KW hour from our local power plants using coal or natural gas. The cost of solar is going down daily and I challenge the industry to as true entrepreneurs, make your product competitive, find the private investors/banks borrow the money and build your business and the industry, the Future is Calling!
Sorry, TejonTech, for any confusion. I was making fun of calliescalia's writing. She obviously meant for the phrase, "As a married woman..." to refer to herself, but the way it came out, it referred to Brittain.
At any rate, I do not believe she is a real person, but either Craig himself or a cohort posing as an independent observer.
K...are you kidding about that...is he a woman?
calliescalia writes, "I've met Craig on several occasions... As a married woman, he made friends with my husband..." I would never have guessed that Craig Brittain is a woman, much less a married woman!

Go ahead,target the homeless,then slip on over to any aricle on firearms and cry about YOUR rights!!Call BS on your numbers.Were the cops,fire dept sitting at home waitng for a homeless call?Is it automatically overtime if the homeless are involved?Suddenly,it costs extra?Whatever,keep it up.A bunch of us that LIVE over here will boycott YOUR businesses!
This is a state attempt to raise our children..subtle, but real, I the image of the democratic big government interference model.
Breakfast should remain parental responsibility and family time...there is much more fed a child getting ready together with his or her parents for productive day than merely food.
Callie...if you think this is alright, you really need to rethink what you are watching on the Tele.
"Majorally Disturbed"???? "Dangerous fellow"???? I've met Craig on several occasions and he is so sweet. As a married woman, he made friends with my husband and offered the same friendship to me. Who cares if he made a site letting some disgruntled ex's feel better about their slutty past partners. If Craig hadn't made this site someone else would. Who are we to frown on capitalism in these hard economic times?!?!?!?!
This is a good move...the west side, like downtown, is over run by panhandlers and unemployed kids with the pants down around their knees.
Neither place is cool or appealing as a place to shop or sit for coffee...one needs to simply go to a mountain town for a pleasant place...we just work here to get together enough money to leave town.
Maybe City Council needs to address that instead of passing resolutions to honor the "little people."
wow tech, your response is hilarious. Tech told a funny. Well, it is actually more ludicrous than humorous, but coming from a guy that has no sense of humor nor creativity, I gave you a little extra credit. Your discourse with dori has no point and is very similar to the "skid mark" you referenced.
And speaking of "skid marks", you accused me of using that faecal phrase. Please show evidence of same. You are always challenging the liberals to back their claims, let me see you back yours. Or are you just as duplicitous and hypocritical as your liberal friends?
It is on point of an argument and not accusing each other of having skid marks in their draws.
