Re: “Air Force to UCCS? Concerns over a chancellor finalist

Interesting... It's pretty easy to "win people over" at USAFA when you outrank everyone and basically hold their career in your hands. You can make unilateral decisions (like decreasing the importance of academics cited above) and every will just salute smartly and say "great decision, general!" Not sure how that would go over at UCCS. Also interesting that she claims the unverifiable fact that she was offered a promotion and turned it down to stay at USAFA. Another alternative unverifiable fact is that she asked for a fifth year at USAFA and was turned down by the Pentagon. Might as well mention that as long as we're throwing around "alternative facts." Finally, her commitment to high quality education isn't that difficult to measure. During her tenure at USAFA, she's moved to decrease graduation academic requirements, cutting core courses (gen ed requirements) like English, Physics, Chem, and Engineering from the core curriculum while also cutting admin support (all but four dept secretaries are gone, down for 20 academic depts) in order to staff her public affairs machine that makes her look good (along with a new $360K office foyer) and spins her narrative. I half want to see her get this job, but only out of morbid curiosity.

Venkat Reddy is the obvious choice to replace Zalabak.

Re: “Driver in fatal crash was 'racing' for a parking space, police said

The other incidents were pedestrians clearly in the cross walk, with the right of way. In this case, as Dan May pointed out, Mel was jaywalking - not in the right of way.

Re: “Driver in fatal crash was 'racing' for a parking space, police said

It sure does look like favoritism.
An explanation that a member of the DA's office was on hand from the beginning sure doesn't explain why others have been charged while this man has not.
I'm sure Dierdorff is remorseful but that doesn't change what feels like harsher charges for others.

Re: “Driver in fatal crash was 'racing' for a parking space, police said

So, what did the person in the vehicle directly behind Dierdorff, who he was "racing" for the parking space, say about the incident? Seems he would have had the best view of what happened.

Re: “I-25 Gap Coalition formed to spur widening project

And we need to lobby the General Assembly to re-up the State's Economic Development Commission corporate welfare program for the members of the coalition to receive millions in taxpayer subsidies so they can then convene a study that show raising taxes is the only way to get the project paid for.

Re: “I-25 Gap Coalition formed to spur widening project

Wait! Wait! We first need to waste $100 million on a couple studies that tell us what we already know. Then we need to find a contractor that will spend $500 million on 40 miles of pavement and four bridges.

Re: “Gazette reportedly lays off newsroom employees

The Gazette appears to be undergoing some sort of identity crisis. Oh sure we still see plenty of "old boy network" pieces that throw out the usual pro-developer/pro-mayor spin, but they are also now carrying the occasional leftist piece from the Washington Post. Their latest editorial hire is also a die hard progressive, which on the surface seems like a good way to shake some bats from the belfry, but it probably isn't going to be good for circulation in such a conservative area.

Re: “More on fatal crash involving El Paso County GOP chairman

Dave H: Give me a break. You apologists all act as if the man killed was a hardened criminal and deserved what he got for jaywalking. Try getting that kind of a dent on you sub by banging your head. Day one of drivers ed classes state pedestrians always have the right of way.

The way you talk makes it sound like we should all be gunning it for jaywalkers to clean up our city. It's absurd. Had anyone besides the well-connected chair of the GOP--who made it a point to tell officers he had met with the DA the night before the accident--the perp would be awaiting trial on the recommendation put forth by the CSPD.

Spot on indigogirl! But, Pam HATES republicans and conservatives and will never pass up a chance to try to put a negative and even dishonest spin on anything they do.

Re: “More on fatal crash involving El Paso County GOP chairman

Modern vehicle bodies dent VERY easily. And honestly, a dent like that does not take very much force at all. To say "with such speed" falsely implies he was moving very fast. Pretty shoddy reporting. But, since we know Pam's political slant, this is to be expected.

What Trevor Dierdorff was doing was perfectly legal. What Mel Tolbert was doing was illegal. Had Mr Tolbert followed the law, Mr Dierdorff would not have hit him. Any charges filed against Mr Dierdorff were only due to the collision, which again, had Mr Tolbert followed the law would not have happened, while Mr Dierdorff was following the law. And that is why the charges were dropped.

Re: “4/20 in the Springs was chill, same can't be said of Denver

It's a stupid event that should be done away with! If people can't behave like decent adults, then stop rewarding them with this inane celebration. Their childish behavior gave Denver a black eye, and a lot of filth. When are we going to stop pandering to these people?

Re: “Gen. Michelle Johnson announces retirement

Sounds like there has been some behind the scenes dealing going on here. All the more reason to look for someone outside this area.
