Re: “Where the sidewalk ends

(Warning not to talk to reporters who pretend to care about local opinions concerning neighborhood issues)

As the story states we were sitting out front of our consigment shop. J. Adrian Stanley insisted on doing a story that we really had no interest in participating in do to current issues concerning our business.

J. Adrian Stanley approached us through our privately paved parking lot with her camera man who actually took pictures of It. Some how Ms. Stanley missed that important fact in her story as I quote her discription of our parking situation " they will likely lose the dirt plot of government land outside their store that currently provides all their customer parking "

We are a small family owned business. Ms. Stanley obviously represents some kind of interest in the Nomans land debate due to her negligent reporting of our issues. She obviously has no interest in small family owned business. Recent events have been financially devastating for us. We won't go into the other misrepresented statements of the story.

Thank you Ms. Stanley for taking our time and adding more confusion to our current situation. I hope your misrepresentation of us brightens your reporting future and brings you many blessings.

Re: “Is he running? A definite maybe

Colorado state law preempts local governments from taxing gas above the state rate to ensure a uniform tax rate for retailers and consumers across the entire state. These funds are deposited in the Highway Users Trust Fund and shared with counties and cities in a formula to account for the preemption and pass gas tax funds to local governments for road and bridge construction, maintenance and repair. Mr. Casamir's proposal is not feasible nor possible under current law.

Re: “Colorado is both killing and supplying Mexico's marijuana industry

It wouldn't be so complicated if our government would officially repeal the prohibition of cannabis. Then we could have a very open dialogue with Mexico about working together to turn the underground into the above ground, creating jobs and strengthening our economies with a comprehensive marijuana cultivation, industrialization and trade agreement for North America. From Canada down, weed is something this continent has always done well.

Re: “She wanted manly and badass

Maybe it's a sign for Disappointed to get in touch with what moves her husband rather than what moves her. It's his choice, after all. And a good opportunity to widen her horizons and explore other things than her preconceived notions of the world.

As for the Easy Rider reference, if you've seen the movie, you know how THAT ended.

Re: “How was marriage won? New book breaks it down

Planting Peace Launches Holiday HIV/AIDS Campaign In Response To Anti-Gay Pastor's Remarks

"Pastor Anderson calling for the execution of gays is a startling reminder of how much hate and bigotry still exists in our society," Planting Peace President Aaron Jackson told The Huffington Post in an email. "In keeping with Planting Peace's philosophy of countering messages of hate with compassion, we wanted to provide a positive platform to bring people together to not only help people with HIV, but to do so in a lighthearted way that will raise awareness for a very serious issue."…

Re: “She wanted manly and badass

Question to the author: Why continue to promote unhealthy stereotypes? Why do we continue to proliferate the idea that a man must look a certain way or dress a certain way or ride or drive a certain vehicle to be considered a man? These antiquated ideas can only hurt relationships. What if the man wrote that he disappointed that his wife didn't dress like Mrs. Cleaver, and get in the kitchen to make him sandwiches? We wouldn't put up with that ridiculous idea, so why are we putting the same negative stereotypes on men? A means of transportation known world-wide for its ease of use, power and flexibility belongs to all the people, men and women. It's really pitiful that at the end of the day, you have to tell a person what they need to dress, wear or ride to fulfill an ultimately limiting idea of a sexual stereotype. And by the way, as a lady rider, scooters are frickin' awesome and fun. So are motorcycles, and skateboards and roller skates. I don't care what anyone rides, as long as they ride safely and responsibly. Also hubby and wife need to attend as MSF course together and then go out riding and visit a few scooter rallys and join a scooter club to see what riding a PTW is really all about. Less about old stereotypes next time please.

Re: “Despicable Me 2 lives up to the title in all the worst ways

This reviewer is a perfect example of the 'finds everything offensive' brigade'. I hope this reviewer stays home for the rest of her life as it is obvious she finds the world just too mean and oppressive.

Re: “She wanted manly and badass

Ddenny, no, you missed the point. The writer obviously used terms that would suggest the purchase of a scooter was ‘gay’. We don’t need this kind of intolerance by a self proclaimed writer. If she saved her money for a chain saw, is that considered ‘butch’?

Re: “She wanted manly and badass

You have obviously missed the point of the advice. It is NOT about "general transportation", it is about expectations, disappointment, dreams, relationship issues, such as making shared decisions on major purchases. As for the awards, "Her LA Times Magazine piece, Return of the Pink Rambler, won second place for "Best Magazine Feature Of 1999," and her New York Daily News series won first place in the "dailies above 100,000 circ" category -- also in the Southern California Journalism Awards."

Re: “Stormwater management, burning wood for power generation, and more

Yes, Clara, your failure to engage and explain yourself is a reasonable substitute for discourse and debate.

Frequently, a lack of explanation is far more telling than a formal one, and thus, I thank you for simply walking away, as this underscores the lack of verification I requested.

You presented grandiose implications of subversive, mercenary intrusions, yet seem strangely unable to quantify them.

But I'm sure the reason is that high-tea with the Mad-Hatter and Alice calls; enjoy your afternoon, and please, regale us with specific tales from your cranium when you're willing and able.

Re: “She wanted manly and badass

One of the worst articles ever written. Scooters are used throughout the world for general transportation. A guys manhood shouldn’t be questioned in this case. Maybe if she had her hubby dress up in a bad boy biker costume that may have obtained the desired results she wanted. BTW: the writer is NOT a famous award winner. Look it up.

Re: “Stormwater management, burning wood for power generation, and more

Jeff, no doubt the tooth fairy is still visiting your dentures. I don't have time or the inclination to play secretary to your curiosity. You should get out more and definitely read more and then you might be a little more worldly wise.
