Re: “Tim Mitros is latest to "retire" with severance pay

I am sorry to see another great city employee pushed out. Speaking of Fleet Management, they are now in year 4 with Serco has the City been saving any money?

Re: “Colorado Springs cancels buffered bike line experiment

To the generous open arms Pizza Time offer. The city's repeated deceit and name calling of the citizens of Briargate, the bike advocacy's rejection of objective discussion throughout this entire episode, and as demonstrated by this very article to continue to cast residents in a negative light by carefully abused references, I think I will have to decline your offer for open discussion because I cannot trust you. If you want trust, you have to earn it back. You betrayed me. I have always been a supporter of on road bicycles and you wouldn't even give me objective discussion in return for it. You need to earn my trust back.

Re: “Colorado Springs cancels buffered bike line experiment

Mr.Bergsten is so biased in favor of bicycles that anyone who reads this article should take it with a very large grain of salt. Among the distortions that Mr.Bergsten has in this article are "vocal group of citizens". The group of citizens is actually much, much larger than the tiny group of bicyclistas who, like Mr.Bergsten, believe narrowing Research was anything more than idiotic.

Another of the distortions was, "wildly misleading information" given by Ms. Marshall. As verified by Ms Prtichard's comments above, there was no notice given to her. So, who is writing "wildly misleading information"?

Re: “Colorado Springs cancels buffered bike line experiment

This event was posted on the Friends of Research Facebook group. Even you think the lanes were a bad idea, get involved:

End of Demo Social

As we toast the completion of the Research Parkway buffered bicycle lane demonstration, Friends of Research and Bike Colorado Springs (BCS) invites everyone in a spirit of friendship and fellowship for an evening social at Pizza Time, Wed., Jan. 18 from 5:00 to 8:00 PM.

From a pedestrian and cycling advocacy point of view, the main takeaway from the demonstration is that the process of active listening, understanding, and transparency are essential for a successful implementation. Toward that end, let's come together and discuss how to meet the challenges that face Briargate and beyond. Clearly there is a long-felt need for having safe pedestrian and cycling routes to our many beautiful parks and award winning schools. There is no better time than now to rise to the challenge of envisioning a 21st century cityscape.

Bring your ideas and sense of optimism; we will be collecting lessons learned and ideas for a BCS after-action report that could be used for potential future projects. This event is open to public and all are welcome.

Re: “Colorado Springs cancels buffered bike line experiment

We live 2 blocks from Reseach (and have for 10 years) and I never received a notice, email, letter, or saw any signs posted about this bike lane implementation. I have asked my neighbors - they didn't receive notices or information either. One day there were 3 lanes on Research, the next day poles and paint reducing traffic to 2 lanes with a dangerous bike lane appeared.

Heaven help us all Joel, when money trumps a principle. Appreciate the reality check, but faith trumps both. And being on the right side doesn't hurt either :)
Denying people the right to vote just because you want to win is a LOSER.

Re: “UPDATE: Save Cheyenne raises money to challenge Strawberry Fields land deal

I appreciate what Joel Miller is saying. At the same time, I believe that attitude of powerlessness that has crept into everyday American life is what has caused many of the problems we face. I have seen too many people make a difference to believe that.

Re: “Western Museum cuts ties with Haunted Mines after 10 years

After 8 years with the original Haunted Mines crew in a leading staff position, and after 6 years with the museum, also in a leadership position - I second Mr Ducote's comment.

Look at it for the statement it is.

Would WMMI seperate themselves from the donations given by past and present HM volunteers for anything less than a very serious problem with the current Haunted Mines management?

The answer is no.

There is a reason WMMI was willing to forego a donation like that. There is little HM can say in defense.

The management and their treatment of WMMI staff and property over the last two years was attrocious. I have first hand experience and evidence of such.

As far as volunteers leaving due to Angel's 'high standards', that is simply laughable. Angel purged the professional team who built Haunted Mines, and she now sees the consequences.

Re: “UPDATE: Save Cheyenne raises money to challenge Strawberry Fields land deal

The unfortunate reality is that this group will face an opponent in court who has a virtually unlimited supply of taxpayer cash to fight them. The City has never just said, "forget it...we're out of money to fight this legal battle." This is especially true when the Anschutz Corporation is firmly in the City's corner as they are the beneficiaries of the transfer.
