Re: “Air Force Academy loses men, women cadets at different rates

My son was well rounded and well prepared (both academically and physically) applicant last year. He would have been class 2020 at AFA. But was overlooked probably because he is hispanic and the academy gives preference to sons and daughters of politicians and high ranking military leaders that dont take their appointment serious...what a waste.
They should give the appointments to regular kids like mine that really are serious about the commitment and service to our great nation..

Re: “PPACG executive and senior staff on indefinite leave

Didn't we used to tar and feather useless and corrupt public leaches??
Also- why the hell do we want to widen I-25. Get your head out of your ass, older generation, and don't f**** up our infrastructure for the foreseeable future.

Re: “PPACG executive and senior staff on indefinite leave

Douglas County just offered to help with the widening of I-25, Chill Out !

Attacking your Boss is not part of the Staff Job Descriptions.

Yes, Government is full of Politics and Drama.

Re: “A huge field of candidates is shaping up to run for governor in 2018

Won't be voting for State Treasurer Walker Stapleton. He's been playing games to get the Governor job for years.

Re: “Homeless locals share their most prized possessions

Thanks so much for wanting to help. There are so many worthy nonprofits in our community. Many of them are a part of our Indy Give! campaign (https://indygive.com/nonprofits/) this year and I know they would use your gift wisely. Catholic Charities (http://www.ccharitiescc.org/) is also a great local nonprofit that was willing to help us with this story and that provides a lot of our needy neighbors with the basics, such as hot meals.

Re: “Homeless locals share their most prized possessions

Thank you for the article and photographs. If the public reads this and wants to help in some way, what would you suggest?
