Re: “A different core curriculum

You know they say 'a sound mind in a sound body.' I like these alternatives! I think Memorial Skate Park and Fit Body can help students stay active, positive and motivated to gain new knowledge every day. When you are at college you have to do lots of college assignments and sometimes it's really hard, for example, to write a dissertation. As a rule a dissertation reports the results of a huge, important, life-altering study. is the service that was designed to help students at all phases of thesis writing process. You can learn how to make a paper well-researched, well-structured and well-written for you to get a desired degree.

Re: “Lance Armstrong is yelling at the Gazette

...but Lance and Indurain did more to popularize the Tour than any, ever. Lance was the best that ever rode. The sponsors, the Tour, the fans and the media got everything they ever wanted during Lance's record seven Tour wins. The purists were finally able to nail him - it took so long because he was out on the foreskin of sports chemistry technology and they couldn't catch him.

Re: “New biz group rides to Springs' rescue

It impresses me that we have so many businessmen who fit so well into those spandex suits.

Developers are the reason this city is in the shape it is. Give me a non-profit headed by young entrepreneurs and then you'd have something.

Re: “Lance Armstrong is yelling at the Gazette

The right thing 2 do Lance, would be not 2 use numbers 2 express words for starters. Don't be a 4skin.

Re: “Marijuana and Manitou

Ask anyone in Law Enforcement who they would rather deal with, a drunk or someone high on pot? Alcohol makes some people violent, marijuana makes people mellow. As for health issues, Alcohol causes liver and kidney damage, affects blood and brain function. 3 or 4 puffs of smoke does not do the damage of a pack of cigarettes. The prohibition was more than likely brought on by big business and the pharmaceutical industry so people can't make money off of something that grows wild.

Re: “New biz group rides to Springs' rescue

The concept of a new organization that can help the community develop a means of at least having some guns and some butter before it reaches a point of having neither guns nor butter is noble.

Re: “Unemployment, Ferguson, Woody Allen, and the Springs jazz scene

Bob Nemanich,,

1) We still do not know all the details regarding why Brown was shot. You are assuming it was a bad shooting.

2) A person does not have to be armed to present enough of a threat to justify shooting. All they have to do is present a perceived threat of death or serious bodily harm.

In fact, from 2008 thru 2012, the yearly average was 778 people murdered by attackers without weapons (FBI). Thousands more were seriously injured.

3) Unfortunately, young black males have a higher tendency to be involved in criminal activity, especially in violent crimes. This is not because of the color of their skin, but rather because of their educational, economical, ethical, familial, and social circumstances.

Regardless of all of this, the community response of rioting, violence, vandalism, and looting was completely unacceptable.

Re: “Avoiding Ferguson's fate

Divide and conquer tactics used by big money keeps the races, genders, nationalities and age groups at each other's throats. It's an old formula that works and a majority of whites fall for it time and again. FOX / GOP / TEA / NRA / Evangelicals, etc are expert users of divide-conquer and fear-mongering to get money and votes.

Rather than write a book here, just look at recent comments from Ted Nugent or Gordon Klingenschmitt to see how this deadly sport is employed.

Re: “Lance Armstrong is yelling at the Gazette

Lance talking about "ethics" is funny. It's not the doping that bothers me about Lance, it's apart of the sport and will always be there, but he's shown he's just not a good person ever since he was a kid. I know guys who used to go to races and let him crash on hotel room floors. He's a dick through and through.

Re: “Lance Armstrong is yelling at the Gazette

But it's so much easier to write a one-sided piece. No pesky rebuttals or new information to worry about!

Like many others, I used to be a big Armstrong fan... and like many others not so much anymore for all the reasons Ramsey wrote about. But the column may have been a little more substantive with a quote or two from Armstrong. Trying & not getting a response is one thing, but not to try at all is just lazy, IMO.

Re: “Clerk's office to run ads, Jenkins promises land, more

Can't wait to see how the Clerk's office will run ads that do not mention Wayne Williams' name. He IS the Clerk, after all. Didn't another local elected rep incur the wrath of ethics watch groups for 'public service' announcements while the guy was running for the office responsible for the announcements?

Re: “Walkability or the Ability to Walk

The University Village shopping center would have been an excellent place to plan more "walkability" access. With its access to the growing UCCS and to an underused waterway it could have been part of a new neighborhood instead of yet another big box complex. It's not too late for the developers to rethink their plans. But then this is Colorado Springs and progressive thinking is not usually part of our plans.

Re: “Drake unit back online

going to be a hard sell by our teabagger mayor to his teabagger minions that replacing Drake will do anything but increase utility bills.

perhaps we should call it the unneeded stadium "tax".

Re: “Avoiding Ferguson's fate

John, this town is full of folks who are retired military with pensions now working for DoD contractors all the while complaining about other folks living off the public dole. Until we leave the past and get behind an organization like "Colorado Springs Forward" your vision of the future will come to fruition.
