Excellent! Many so called leaders don't have the fortitude to point out the true problem, but not only did you do so. You offering the people one of many solutions. That deal directly with the problem. This is what one would call Overstanding. Great job Patience!
Patience is addressing one of the toughest issues in Colorado Springs. Dave Gardner talks about the urban sprawl and why that is a problem but, he doesn't go into detail about why it is happening. What we just witnessed on November 8th had been lying the underbelly of America for the last 8 years. Voters not only felt left out, but they also felt that their ecosystem was being challenged. Patience did a great job of outlining what we've seen and grew up with on a daily basis in Southeast Colorado Springs. This type of reporting can only bring clarity and understanding to the everyday issues we face.
A very well written and informative article about an extremely important issue. The more attention this issue is given hopefully will bring about much needed assistance and positive changes. Patience you are doing an amazing job.
GOP means Graveyard Of Principles. Cannot make any city great again until the people remove TABOR, the GOP, and all special interests the GOP caters to.
People who don't understand why people marched don't want to understand why people marched. The marchers are not hysterical and certainly not uneducated.
I know scientists and artists that marched because programs are going to cut. I know moms who marched with their daughters to say it is important to be involved.
Hopefully it will motivate the millions who don't even bother to vote to see that their votes do matter.
Great thanks to Patience for turning attention to these issues, and most importantly, giving us a way to help right now. I agree with KB Girl above, too many residents of COS drive around not just statistical blights-- but people-- they don't want to see. I am so excited to see Denverworks in our community, helping these young men and women succeed. I hope to see more articles like this in the Indy, and more updates from Food Rescue too, addressing the needs of the SE side, and advancing locally derived solutions.
As a mother of two young African American boys, I relate strongly with this writer. I agree, the responsibility falls upon all of us to raise up Colorado Springs' children in a collectively healthy and socially responsible city. Any city "eye sores" or statistical blights must be owned by every resident, whether north, east, south or west (yes you can join the effort too OCC and Manitou folks!) We are far too comfortable driving around the southeast side of town and turning a blind eye to our black boys who need us all to expect greatness from them. Thank you Patience for drawing attention to our city's Diversity & diverse needs!
No puppet...........No puppet.
Tannim "Modern Adults" thats funny being were going backward.
the race to third world status has begun. we don't need epa or health care... the p***y grabber chump and the repubics will take us there in hyperdrive.
Really grateful for Patience covering this news and what it all means for Colorado Springs!
Actually, I rather like the idea of bringing the grizzlies back.
I really don't see this as Mr Skorman seeking a "fitting ending" to his story. After all, he is only 64! I see him as a dynamic man with a truly inclusive vision for our community. Wish I lived in District 3.
Dook hut No fapping
So, did the Clinton or Obama administrations deny the press access to the White House? No.
Was this ever done under the Bush administration? Again, no.
So what we have here is simply Mr. Tannim's personal bias trying in vain to pass for logic. Then again you do not need to adhere to any journalistic standards at all, do you, Mr. Tannim?
I love your truth Julie, and happy you're bringing this out. This is an issue in the running community at all ages!
"dismisses half of the nation as 'deplorable'" she did not thus you are proven liar already tannim
Mr. Tannim, your thought processes are so Hazy, it Hurts to read through your post.
Recently, I was called out on this blog in another thread for protecting my anonymity. Mr. Tannim just reminded me of another reason I use a screen name. I prefer not to be subjected to puerile puns upon my name by ideologues who cannot defend their prejudices with facts and logic.
We marched because we have been listening carefully to the words that spewed directly from the mouth of Putin's lapdog. Mr. Tannim posts his drivel over hysterics from a pack of alt-right lies.
Mr. Tannim, you would not recognize a fact if it bit you on the butt. That's the bottom line.
I think the faux in your claimed libertarian stance is showing tannim.
