Re: “Trails and parks reopen, HUD finds deficiencies, and more

Mr. Gioia would be best served to bring up voter turnout from his demographic above 20%. If the group cannot be motivated to even complete a ballot that is mailed to them and need only be mailed back, it is folly to believe that they will have the will or the attention span to educate themselves on issues and take an active role.

Hopefully Mr. Gioia can turn that around by informing the group of what is really happening in their City--not by using race, age and gender discrimination allegations toward those who do actually vote.

Re: Pale Male Stale...

In other words, Tony Gioia is going to head up a group intending to promote race, gender and age discrimination.

Re: “Last Ditch effort

Even with all the rains, I think now is the time for city residents to really give a lot of thought to how badly they want those lush green lawns. We got rid of ours. I don't miss it. I don't have to mow and water all the time, my yard is full of lush drought-tolerant perennials which attract tons of gentle bees that pollinate my fruit trees. A small vegetable garden is producing fresh food for the table. All at a lower cost than watering a lawn.

Re: “The unusual death of Alex Quiros

There was no breakup. BIG cover up, and the first comment here is PLANTED psych-op disinfo. Quiros had just spoken with his girlfriend at 11 am, and was to call her back at 3. they were discussing marriage and moving in together! If America is so dumbed down and zombified that they actually let this OBVIOUS ASSASSINATION with TORTURE pass, you can all look forward to more of the same touching YOUR family!

Re: “Coming or going?

one other minor consideration, besides all that community support:
what does the Army need, in order to have troops, equipment and units ready to go to war ?

If we remain in the mode of heavy troop rotations overseas,
in order to subjugate local populations,
then troops don't really need to train when they are back stateside.
The overseas duty keeps them sharp, if exhausted.

But if we pull back from some of these unnecessary conflicts,
then troops will have to train here in the USA.

Frankly, PCMS is 85% not usable.
Downrange Ft Cartoon is only big enough for one mechanized Brigade to train at a time.
Facts like these do not augur well for maintaining high troop levels here.
But then,
since when has the Congress made such decisions based on combat effectiveness ?
This will be a purely political deal,
reflecting how good of a horse trader we have representing us.

Re: “Coming or going?

They won't reduce much at this base but other will have some minor reductions. They need to give the PCMS back to the rightful owners and forget the 43 LZs they want. They have plenty and the HAMET training out of the Eagle County airport.
No one can trust them after all the lies and fake EIS studies.

Re: “The unusual death of Alex Quiros

These days everyone sees a conspiracy. Crazy, odd and unexplainable things happen everyday and yet no one wants to believe the Coroner. The Coroner doesn't work for the Air Force so I am not sure why or how he wold want to cover up an incident. I am thankful to the Indy for at least trying to bring some light to an unfortunate death. With the mother also taking her life I wonder if both had struggled for years with emotional turmoil. Sorry for this families losses.

Re: “What's the plan?

Who gives a rat's a.. about a plan for the Federal government?

All that is important is that our local representatives are executing plans to prevent - and performing the training to mitigate - the most likely disasters that will impact this area. This includes flash flood/runoff mitigation, and urban/wilderness wildfire suppression.

Unfortunately I have seen some hand-waving, but little progress, towards either threat.

Re: “Homeless population swells

I believe the influx of homeless is directly correlated to the legalization of marijuana.

Re: “What's the plan?

I am always amused when someone who cannot read calls other people "ignorant." OldCrank never said the elected officials caused the fires. He said they caused the "fiascos" that failed to deal effectively with those fires.

On the other hand, perhaps "Can O'Korn" is just a troll with no real convictions, who is trying to create anger and confusion to fuel his personal needs. I wonder because he labels people as "racist," which does not logically follow from the post he is criticizing, but is almost guaranteed to get an angry response. The same goes for the attribution of responsibility for starting the fires to "terrorists."

Re: “What's the plan?

Judging by your selfie, you're the one who's all ears.
The county government IS the disaster; but go ahead, re-elect them.

Re: “What's the plan?

It's comments like oldcranks that make me realize just how ignorant and racist liberals really are.

So oldcrank please enlighten us how the county is responsible for fires that were started by terrorists? we're all ears.

Re: “The unusual death of Alex Quiros

If indeed this promising young man killed himself over a breakup with his girl friend then I wonder how he could possibly have managed the challenges an Air Force officer faces?

Re: “What's the plan?

Idiots here will re-elect the losers who caused these fiascos, then they'll try to blame their failures on, you know, that black guy in their white house.

Re: “How the search for one grieving mother challenged local agencies

As a general rule, incident command is done by fire departments unless it is a criminal, law enforcement matter.

Re: “The jet set

There has been a long history of over spending in both our County and City Governments. The Elpaso County Coroners Office is a perfect example of this, The elected Coroner flys to different locations across the United States and abroad to give expert testimony on the taxpayers dime and is given a per day stipened while he is there. I understand that there are travel budgets in place for when the work pertains to City and County affairs, but the wages of these County officials are public record and Dr Robert Bux can certainly afford to pay his own way to some of these events on what he makes.
