"Uncle Ralph" has had enough! And good on him!
It is indeed refreshing to find a male in the local 'caspar milquetoast community' of spineless weaklings who have something besides warm whipped cream stuffed down their nutsacks who will actually stand up and say something when it's obvious something needs to be said!
While everybody else is huddled up at the El Paso Club or Plaza of the Rockies.
Ralph and Pam: couple of jalapenos stuck in the middle of the bland vanilla pudding!
I had hundreds of signs stolen in a systematic and methodical way in my Council campaign. I'd love to be able to catch some of these people and have them testify to the City as an alternative punishment why they think what they're doing is ok.
It's indicative of the filth in Colorado Political scene. The political consultant class is well known for their pond-scum based moral compass. Sad that in Colorado Springs the paid-for-hire consultant class would rather cheat than let candidates compete on their strengths and weaknesses. Sad.
So petty. Where us our freedom of speech?
It is happening everywhere and I'm sure to more than Richard.
The first time signs disappeared his opponent signs had sprung up over night.
Parents are setting a bad example. Stop trespassing!
So, unless those signs were burned, they still exist somewhere. In a car trunk, in someone's garage, in a landfill? Who knows? But I'll keep my eye out for them just the same. If I spot them there will be the dickens to pay. I wish there was a "find my iPhone" app for political signs. It's a sad state of affairs in our city that that last sentence found its way into print. PS If you are on good terms with your trash collector you might want to ask the guys to let you know if they should see them... and from where they were picked up.
Couldn't have said it better myself!
The problem with our transportation infrastructure isn't lack of funding, it's that we spend the funds we already have in an extremely wasteful manner: adding more miles of pavement, or extra lanes to a busy road, intuitively makes sense as a way to reduce congestion and travel times, but in practice building more roadway always invites more traffic over time ("induced demand") and so we get a very temporary benefit at very high cost. If the goal is to improve network capacity and average speeds within and between cities, we should not be throwing money at one of the least efficient modes of intra-city transport available and should instead be investing heavily in commuter rail, buses, and infrastructure that invites walking and cycling (the exact opposite of what we have now, infrastructure which imposes extra burdens on anyone not traveling via automobile).
While I support the same candidates as this letter writer, I really dislike the tone. These candidates have done an excellent job of presenting themselves and their credentials without resorting to the smear tactics of their opponents.
As supporters, let's do the same, please!
I will be voting for them! Though I'm still waiting to get my ballot that was mailed last Friday.
>Chuck Fowler in District 3 failed his neighbors during the Waldo Canyon Fire while working as manager of their homeowners association board.
What did he do?
Put a $100 bill in an envelope and send it Lamborn. I'm sure that will get you in the door for a meeting with him. Another $100 might help him listen to you as well.
Sorry, but cynicism is a form of realism. In this case, the reality is that he doesn't give a whit about anyone but his donors.
Personally, I have no problem with a downtown stadium, as long as our tax dollars are not spent to build and run it.
How can I translate my feelings about your exit? Adios, Arrivederci, Auf Wiedersehen, Sayonara or just plain, Don't let the door hit you in the ass.
For years you've been espousing your leftist, out-of-touch Bullsh!t in this rag and now you're leaving, it's a step in the right direction for the Independent and yet the smattering of indoctrinated zombie drone followers you have can still follow your rantings at the even less popular and dwindling readership of the C/S Business Journal. Yeah, sounds about right, you're going out with a whimper......
You're are a failed Investment Banker, Real Estate Broker, Politician and now, Journalist...... Your accomplishments are even less than your insights. What a fantastic and insightful life you've had......
S-A-R-C-A-S-M button OFF.
If you really care for the city you claim to love then go to Tahiti, GO, BE FREE...... Maybe just maybe your idiotic rantings will be forgotten by your minions so that they can then become contributing members to society.
Want to read an erotica/ fiction ebook by a local lesbian author set in Colorado Springs? Check out "Adventures of a GWF REBORN" on amazon. I really think our local LGBT would enjoy it highly to read about being gay in the 90's in CS back in the day!
So you know she bought educational materials but that isn't good enough.

Who do you think will win in each district - and what importance do endorsements have on your decision on issues and/or candidates? A three minute quick -poll. Thank you
This is one of the first times I've done my research on my candidates before reading endorsements. I'll be interested to see how my opinion will be swayed between now and when I submit my ballot.
Absolute nonsense. Your sources are slightly less credible than Reefer Madness.
Just read the linked article provided by Jeff Hirtle about Fresno's stadium, which contained this chilling fact: "Stadium events outside of the Grizzlies initially were projected to generate $425,000 annually. In 2015, the amount was less than $10,000."
Regardless, City Leaders are proud of their beautiful stadium and consider it to be worthy of spending tax dollars to keep the red-ink stadium afloat while skimping on basic services that are the responsibility of govt to provide for its citizens. Stadium/event centers are not a profit center for any city that has one - instead, they divert tax revenue to debt service and maintenance. Stadium/event centers don't generate a profit for anyone other than the owners of nearby properties and the developer, who in the case of COS, is also the owner of numerous nearby properties.
Routon - and his fellow starry-eyed City Leaders who are determined to revitalize downtown so that it can compete with Denver - need to take off their rose-colored glasses and put on their thinking caps.
in as far as keeping it out of the hands of minors YES.
