Re: “$2.5 million in health grants awarded

While I'm ecstatic that they made these donations. Why does it seem impossible for someone to step up and donate clean water for Security-Widefield. Any of those donations could help pay for the filters needed on the wells and keep customers from having to pay increased water bills just to have clean water.

Re: “Bar Rescue TV show coming to Brickhouse Bar & Grill

Good for them. I tried to help them last year and found over 50 health code violations in the kitchen alone. Nice owner but in way over his head. John Taffer is going to lose his friggin mind when he sees that place.

Winning is a serious accomplishment, but sometimes, sometimes coming in second in this game is a damned good feeling too.

Re: “Council takes up shooting, walking

For time in office to date, how has the current city administration impacted your thoughts on 'trust' and 'open-transparent' city government? A one-minute informal and anonymous quick poll for your consideration. Thank you.

Re: “Council takes up shooting, walking

The main question is, why is the city building this bridge? Let the developers build the bridge. Oh but I forgot, the mayor and majority of the city council are in the hip pockets of the developers and anschutz.

Re: “Bar Rescue TV show coming to Brickhouse Bar & Grill

Gentrification is the high jacking of working class neighborhoods. It is arresting the homeless and illegally jailing them. It is building esthetically disgusting eyesores like the Blue Dot apartments. It is developer welfare programs. It is taking anything with a soul and turning it into white bread, plastic garbage. It is hipster breweries, starbucks, and chain restaurants. It is another excuse for the developer cartel to dig into the pockets of the taxpayers to enrich themselves. It is the enemy of art and culture. It destroys a towns sense of place and turns it into a homogenized facsimile of every other place. Eventually there will be no brickhouse, just another TGIfridays were it once stood.

Re: “Bar Rescue TV show coming to Brickhouse Bar & Grill

"fit in with its shiny, hip neighbors as the New South End gentrifies"?? Seriously? Do you know what gentrification means? Go down there and walk around the block and tell me about it...

Re: “UPDATE: City tax hike study paralleled land swap debate

Gary, Thanks for asking!
When I choose to move here in 1984 after a lengthy analysis of places to live, I was thrilled by the proximity of the mountains both on the west side and the Austin Bluffs/Palmer Park extension east of I-25.
As one the of founders of the TOPS program along with people like Richard Skorman and John Weiss (of the Indy), we have been able to expand the trail, open space, and parks opportunities.
However, when the Great Recession hit in 2008, the Parks budget crashed with the economic crash. There is now a back log of $180 million of parks updates that are needed. In addition, we would like to establish a funding mechanism so that when the next recession hits, Parks is not hit like it was in 2008.
Parks, Trails, and Open Space along with the great climate is what makes Colo Spgs a wonderful place to live. We need to invest in the present and the future to keep it great!

Thank you, Lee

Re: “UPDATE: Disbarred attorney Chernushin found dead

GREAT- WHAT A COWARD! Not only did he steal the money of people who were disabled, he bailed on getting honest, standing up and making it right. Now his former clients will have to sue the wife to get restitution? Where does that leave her? Alone and in debt?

John and Jim,

I urge you not to "throw the baby outwith the bath water"! I understand and share your anger, but there is bigger picture to consider, please!

Thanks, Lee
