Re: “Opinion: Manitou Springs' war on hikers

Calling the majority of people who use the incline "hikers" strains credibility. Actual hikers in Colorado will yield to others who are hiking uphill, respect rules regarding dogs, wear appropriate footwear for hiking, and not travel in large groups carrying on loud conversations that can be heard hundreds of feet down the trail as if they were at the mall. Since so many incline users aren't able to comply with the signs at the Barr Trail lot and park elsewhere, the city should continue to raise the fee for this lot and give the rebate to those who go to Barr Camp. This is, after all, the Barr Trail parking lot, not the incline, Ute Pass, Cameron's Cone, Pike National Forest parking lot.

Re: “Local students protest Trump

Agree they proved how "smart" they are. They proved too why the preservation of our way of life depends on charter schools and vouchers to provide valid education to the next generation about how precious our form of republican govt is to the preservation of personal liberty and freedom. A lack of being taught about WHY America's founding fathers - rebels, every one of them - broke away from England, and a lack of knowledge about our Constitution and republican form of govt results in the production of educated dimwits. The People are fed up with the political status quo. The People are fed up with surrendering our sovereignty. The People are fed up with socialist policies. And that's why Trump, regardless of his politically incorrect comments, was elected President.

Good for them. They proved how smart they are, so maybe not all is lost. Let them go forth and be our future! Unlike the porrly educated who voted for bluster and empty promises over substance.

Re: “Life framed by elections

So glad the scab is off the wound! Trump is the quintessential American. These guys are all over Paris London Moscow. ..I tend to put public figures on a pedestal. But trump is a lot like me it turns out...hmmm...I've grabbed girls with impunity I've been racist in jest which is no better. Finally, we men can say YES! I AM A MAN, I AM OFTEN INAPROPRIATE, I AM SAVAGE! I AM A HUNTER OF THINGS AND PRAISE!
The people elected their ilk.

Then they all killed each other...

Re: “Bad reflection on our city

Please don't forget that at least one of those "old white men" is actively trying to provide some transparency, as well as listen to the citizens. We would do well to discard the labels and evaluate each council person individually.

Also, did creating a highly salaried position give us the Mayor we need? I'd say, no on both counts so far. I can't see providing a higher salary for council until they outline what is expected of them (vs. what was expected when it was initially determined that this is a part time position).

He's being paid to say negative things about mj legalization
More Coloradans favor legalization now than when the law passed.
