Re: “Wish We Were Here killed as KRCC adapts to survive

Here's an idea, KRCC: do a "wish you were here" segment on the unsolved cold blooded murder of your former employee Jocelyn Sandberg -- or is she already out of sight, out of mind? How quickly some of you people forget.

Re: “Wish We Were Here killed as KRCC adapts to survive

As the pub media landscape changes and is increasingly threatened by online / on demand content, unique locally produced material is what will keep stations viable. Many of the most successful affiliates (critically and financially) have been leaders in this way.

As to the commentary re: value of WWWH with a $10,000 budget... That's tiny! Expect a show like this American life to be well into the six figures. In my opinion it WWWH show (or similar creative local content) deserves more. If we don't support folks with 'New York kind of money' just be ready to be listening and watching and reading content produced in New York and LA.

News like this makes it hard to justify my regular support of local media.

Re: “Wish We Were Here killed as KRCC adapts to survive

So you drive around with a microphone and mix it down with "Audition", Jake's fave, ... How's that ten grand? This should be a wake up call to kids that want to tell a story for five hundred bux! Every KRCC listener has preferences. I turn off Keillor. Dance revo has no taste and is from elsewhere. Youth is right, give it back to the kids! These board members and directors are just local socialites that are so "artsy"(puke!) KEPC seems more real(if they had the BBC...OH MY ...HEAVENLY!)
Noel just droned anyway...sounded too indistinguishable from Jake, now there's a kid with some sense! Don't let the big city kill ya, Noel...oh yeah, that's why you came crawling back.

Re: “Strawberry Fields in Cheyenne Cañon is on the table for a swap with The Broadmoor

My mother had been diagnosed of Hepatitis B disease 3 years ago. She had been using the interferon therapy (Peg-interferon + Ribavirin) which adversely affected her hemoglobin level as she is also thalassemic (a side effect of using the interferon therapy). Luckily after stopping the treatment.

I read a book by HEALTH MED LAB about natural cures and he recommends these two things as a natural cure for HEPATITIS disease,Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy and Crocodile Protein Peptide. You can Google both of these to get more info. Also, need to do the cleanses,colon, liver, kidney, galbladder. Eat organic foods to get the toxins out of your body so your body can overcome the disease itself.This is important. I am not promoting his book, but I feel it is a must read if you want information on how to beat this awful disease. My mother is now HEPATITIS Negative with his help, Anyway, his email : ( healthmedlab401@gmail.com ) God bless and good luck!

Re: “Wish We Were Here killed as KRCC adapts to survive

I know this is an Indy site, but after the exhaustive coverage of the Strberry Fields problem, I still lacked understanding UNTIL WWWWH enlightened me. I told Beary that local content was the future of KRCC. I know Noel is really full of himself, and probably demanded NY kind of money. He deserves it! Noel is gone, KRCC will follow. I guess you guys should eat some humble pie. Give the station back to the students, but keep GT! Let's face it, you guys got news on a loop. I have to stop what I'm doing to change the station because I already heard that story last hour. Pushing Noel to the internet will enhance it, while KRCC dies. I love my old school radio! BRICKHOUSE!

What a misleading headline. Poor journalism that reflects on the rest of your content.

Re: “Wish We Were Here killed as KRCC adapts to survive

It doesn't cost more to produce, as the article states. This American Life costs way more. 6k is what krcc pays to get it on the air. Read better next time.

Re: “Wish We Were Here killed as KRCC adapts to survive

Sorry but WWWH was a terrible show. The fact that it cost more to produce than This American Life, one of the most popular shows on NPR, is appalling.

Re: “Waldo, Black Forest Fire investigations lurch to a standstill years later

"Lurch" to a standstill? Lurch means "to move in lurches." A lurch is "an act or instance of swaying abruptly". "a sudden tip or roll to one side as of a ship or a staggering person". "a swaying or staggering motion or gait".

It's too bad that the next time this happens nothing different will result.

Re: “Centennial Boulevard project would link Fillmore and Fontanero west of I-25

The area is full of deer. On a hike last night on the Mesa Trail, I counted around 20 that were right out in the open. It's true, the private land owned by the Garden of the Gods club is getting trashed by dumping, high school kids making out, off-road vehicle drivers, and random campers. I ran into some people from New Mexico who have been camped out there for a week already. That aside, it's time we citizens start organizing to get the land west of the Centennial extension purchased by TOPS funds. Clean up the trash and re-vegetate the dirt tracks, and we have a fantastic addition to the city's open spaces. These are gorgeous scrub oak foothills (lush for Colorado), with high grass, a perennial creek, deep ravines and rolling hills, majestic cottonwoods, a riparian area full of hardwood trees, and excellent deer habitat. It has multiple access points, but it will need a real caretaker. The current land owners are just sitting on these properties (and hoping to develop them!) If successfully acquired, the open space could be larger than Sondermann park with even better trails. TOSC, let's get on this and make it happen!

Re: “Centennial Boulevard project would link Fillmore and Fontanero west of I-25

I'm not sure how much wildlife there is given the hundreds of 4 wheel drive vehicles out there tearing up the native vegetation and creating erosion and all of the illegal dumpers filling the erosion with garbage and old refrigerators. having the road in and the area somewhat developed might give the open space areas a chance to recover and we might get some wildlife to move back in. I think some responsible development of the area would be the best thing for it... before all of it's hillsides and habitat are washed down to Pueblo.

Re: “Though Bernie's campaign looks busted, local delegates are still with him

Hillary 2016, lets go! Time for Sanders supporters to get behind the Democratic nominee and stop the real enemy, Trump. Sanders ran a good race, but he lost. Any person who cannot see the benefits of Hillary Clinton for president over Trump is probably a Republican racist, just like he is......

Re: “Manitou has recovered, maybe a little too much

The roads do need fixing, but it's not going to happen during tourist season, unless it starts interfering with business. If these people are moving to Manitou due to the fact that cannabis is legal, just to break the law in another way, then they should have stayed where they were because they're still breaking the law. We need more industry in both the springs and Manitou and fortunately or unfortunately the Cannabis industry is the only game in town. If we want to get these people off the streets the best way to do that is to make it so that they can always find a job with reasonable pay. People that are busy are less likely to get into trouble fact of life.

Re: “Millennial firebrand Calandra Vargas wants to kick Lamborn to the curb

I reached out to Ms. Vargas' campaign website in an attempt to get clarification on a few inconsistencies on positions I noticed on her website. After two messages and several weeks with no reply I reached out to her via her Facebook page. After pointing out these inconsistencies her reply to me was very defensive and borderline verbally abusive. She accused me of being "closed minded" and being a "woman hater". I then replied to this message letting her know I was a proud Democrat. Therefore by definition I am open minded. So open minded in fact that I was reaching out to her campaign despite her being on the other side. However her response to this was to have one of her cronies attack me (with atrocious spelling and grammar mind you) then block me from her page. Regrettably this proves to me she is no different than any other racist, bigoted and just plain evil Republican. She is shutting down civil discourse on her campaign's Facebook page. What does that tell you about the kind of representative she'd be?
