Re: “The Springs holds many Mexican food options, from south-of-the-border to Southwestern interpretations

We went back to Amanda's Fonda a couple months ago... very disappointed.
The quality has dropped dramatically. You could taste that the spinach enchiladas used Campbell's cream of mushroom soup.

Now that Quijote's is fantastic, consistent, and well-portioned.

Re: “Colorado Springs is 'second to none' for top-notch coffee

Did you check out Wesley Owens or Shots? They are both outstanding.

Re: “What Colorado Springs is — and isn't — all about

Not You, I hear there are meetings in Cave of the Winds, but you have to go on one of the spelunking tours. About half way through, get to the back of your group, hide behind a corner, wait til they leave without you, then turn off your light and crawl on your belly through the smallest cave on the left. Even when it gets smaller, don't be scared, just keep going, and you will find the meeting place in an open cavern, full of like minded anti-progressives. You will know you are on the right place when you hear them talking - it sounds like "h-ollum" or "k-ollum" Trust me on this one!

Re: “What Colorado Springs is — and isn't — all about

Fascism is an extreme right wing political movement. If it were truly leftist, then Infidel01 would not be disparaging those who oppose it.

Re: “What Colorado Springs is — and isn't — all about

The moron activists don't even understand that most fascist indicators or aims are collectivist and Leftist. The pro-nationalism facet of a couple historical fascist movements is all their DNC/MSNBC/CNN-numbed/conditioned minds get, hence the immature and shallow antifa group-think minions....

Re: “Prepping your first-time camper

Summer Camp is so important, it gets kids outside and away from their screens. Yet, as parents, we all want to be sure our kids are safe. Any camp you select especially Overnight Camps should be accredited by the ACA, they check over 300 camp items. I know I own Swift Nature Camp http://swiftnaturecamp.com

Re: “DayBreak rejuvenates caregivers and their loved ones

I'm one of the caregivers who has been so blessed in being able to both give my brain-injured husband a safe and structured environment to enjoy while I benefit from turning off that constant "on" mode and take time for something for "me." Paula and DayBeak and Markaya are true blessings and much needed for our community. Thank you!

Re: “Support unique local stores with your gift giving this season

Disappointed to see you didn't include http://wwwkoffeekompanions.com in this section because online businesses based in Colorado Springs are also "local." They distribute profits to many local businesses who are vendors or are featured in Koffee Kompanions blog at http://www.koffeekompanions.com/blog-cozyc…. Anyone who drinks coffee, tea, or other beverages will benefit from keeping them hot or cold with cup wraps, caps, and cozies for takeout cups, coffee mugs, French presses, and teapots from this premier provider--in business since 1996.

Re: “Victory Service Dogs pair people and pets in need of rescue

Black Forest Animal Sanctuary is very proud to be able to bring dogs like Joey from death row and provide them with a purpose. Like helping veterans like Travis.

Re: “The First Tee develop opportunities for young athletes

As a volunteer Coach and Mentor in my third year at The First Tee of the Pikes Peak Region, I have had the pleasure of seeing a metamorphosis (if you will) in the attitudes and critical thing of our kids as they embrace the Core Values. I am honored to be a part of this adventure in cultivating our youth.

Re: “The First Tee develop opportunities for young athletes

Thank you for spotlighting The First Tee of Pikes Peak and it's impact on the young people of Colorado Springs. As someone who has interacted with the chapter board and staff, I can share that the participants and parents are in good hands. Thanks again for highlighting the work that Leighton Smith and the support coaches are providing. If this is your first time learning of the program and facility I highly encourage you to visit the Indoor Learning Center this winter season.

The local First Tee facility is wonderful - great for golfers of all ages - If you haven't been there be sure to stop by soon.
