You think your turn signal is a decoration, so you leave it on for 20 miles

Re: “Life on Parole

Why would inmates waive their parole hearing? There is only one reason--they know that the parole board will deny them pro forma. Colorado's parole board doesn't follow the law. They are a bunch of scammers.

Re: “Locals meet on Ferguson

In 2012, cops killed 140 Blacks. At the same time, cops killed 386 Whites.

And at the same time, Blacks killed 2412 Blacks.

And at the same time, 678 people were killed by UNARMED attackers.

In fact, more than TWICE as many people are killed every year by unarmed attackers than are killed by attackers firing AR-15s, AK-47s, or other rifles.

Re: “Trapped in the dying mall

Dude, I shredded every wall in my house with throwing stars when I was a kid. Sadly, my career as a ninja never really took off, though.

Re: “Trapped in the dying mall

How are things at the Citadel? Haven't been in there in decades. Used to deliver their mail in '72 when I was a relief carrier out of Station A Post Office.

Re: “Locals meet on Ferguson

How about justice for Gilbert Collar, a white, unarmed 18-year-old under the influence of drugs was shot and killed Oct. 6, 2012, by Officer Trevis Austin, who is black, in Mobile, Alabama.

This was not in the National Media,
because they did a "White out" on this story.

Pass it on.....

Re: “Elder outlines sheriff's new team

Good luck Mr. Elder! As you settle in I hope that your leadership will include qualified women. I am not sure that Maketa's girlfriends are actually qualified for their jobs.

Re: “Yes, it's asbestos

When I was young, this area was called Fred's Shacks. There were all sorts of old cabins, TB huts, etc., and Fred rented them out to the homeless. No telling what they will find if they keep digging.

Re: “Elder outlines sheriff's new team

Ms. Stanley – As a taxpayer and member of this community, this sickens me. Where did you get your information?

The Sheriff’s Office DOES NOT have 7 Bureau Chiefs nor have they ever! Actually they have 3 authorizations for 3 Bureau Chiefs – 1 in Detentions, 1 in Law Enforcement and 1 in Support Services. This equals 3, not 7. Therefore, incoming Sheriff-elect Elder will be adding an additional Bureau Chief for a total of 4.

Secondly, this idea that Larry Borland will replace Cardarelle is a HUGE mistake! She isn’t even a Bureau Chief let alone a Commander … but Elder is going to replace her with a Bureau Chief? Obviously he has no clue! I can tell you right now, Mr. Borland nor will anyone else in that office, for that fact, provide the level of financial work that Ms. Cardarelle does. She has a wealth of knowledge and has done exceptionally well as Comptroller. Mr. Elder needs to set aside his bias and be a true leader and embrace those types of employees rather than snuggle up with the like of Commander King, who has a file cabinet of internal affairs investigations for his misconduct. In addition, he would embrace the legal knowledgebase that Charles Greenlee provides to that Office instead of getting rid of another employee who otherwise was not part of the “boys club”.

Speaking of “boys club” … Elder is surrounding himself with all men. Either he is homosexual or sexist! Quite honestly, there are a number of Elder’s new Command Staff that are nothing more than useless. An example of this uselessness is Commander Bob McDonald, who mind you is being promoted to Bureau Chief, which only provides more evidence that Elder is just fulfilling political promises, which is unethical!

Lastly, this “will likely result in an additional high-level position," which really means that Todd Evans, Chief of Police in Fountain, is coming over as a second Undersheriff. This idea that there is going to be salary savings is misleading, which further confirms that Elder can't do his math corectly. Regardlessm, the Sheriff’s Office is due to implode and the taxpayers and members of the community are going to get stuck with the bill. Employees at the Sheriff’s Office need to do their jobs and not consume themselves with back-door politics and creating a top-heavy agency, which will eventually topple over.

Bill Elder has NO idea what the definition of leadership is and how to be a true leader himself. Just you wait. The Sheriff’s Office will implode soon enough.

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.

Very interesting and explains a lot. Has Alex published this thesis? If so I would love to read the whole thing.

Re: “Colorado Springs Airport could get a boost

So, what would the money be used for?

Re: “Green turns to gray

No and Yes. LEED is somewhat of a "racket". But, there are many examples of certifications, accepted by professionals, and useful until something better comes along. The certification procedure is assessed frequently and updated.

Yes, there are ways to assess how well the building performs. LEED doesn't do this, it would be up to the building owners, if they wanted to. Likewise, it is the building owners' responsibility to upkeep the structure to maintain efficiency. Also keep in mind that, while many of the LEED measures save money in the long run, some do not (for the specific building), but still benefit the local environment, which is a primary goal.

So timely! I was just pondering this question a few days ago. Thank you for the answer, Indy and Alex.

Re: “Where the sidewalk ends

As a resident of no man's land, this article was spot on. I share many of the same things you observe on a daily basis, and I for one cannot wait for This PPRTA work to be done.

Re: “Colorado Springs Airport could get a boost

There is no reason to give taxpayer handouts to airports such as Colorado Springs. It may be underutilized, but it is not underfunded.
