Re: “New biz group rides to Springs' rescue

"....a newly created non-profit group is launching an effort to "bring the community together to help address the problems and the opportunities that lie ahead."

How very naive. The "community" doesn't give a shit if the city crumbles.

Nothing will change or improve until all TABORs are done away with.

you have to admit it took a lot of ball to apologize for not being good at apologizing.

Re: “A different core curriculum

You know they say 'a sound mind in a sound body.' I like these alternatives! I think Memorial Skate Park and Fit Body can help students stay active, positive and motivated to gain new knowledge every day. When you are at college you have to do lots of college assignments and sometimes it's really hard, for example, to write a dissertation. As a rule a dissertation reports the results of a huge, important, life-altering study. http://dissertationwritinglab.com/ is the service that was designed to help students at all phases of thesis writing process. You can learn how to make a paper well-researched, well-structured and well-written for you to get a desired degree.

Re: “Lance Armstrong is yelling at the Gazette

...but Lance and Indurain did more to popularize the Tour than any, ever. Lance was the best that ever rode. The sponsors, the Tour, the fans and the media got everything they ever wanted during Lance's record seven Tour wins. The purists were finally able to nail him - it took so long because he was out on the foreskin of sports chemistry technology and they couldn't catch him.

It impresses me that we have so many businessmen who fit so well into those spandex suits.

Re: “New biz group rides to Springs' rescue

Developers are the reason this city is in the shape it is. Give me a non-profit headed by young entrepreneurs and then you'd have something.

Re: “Lance Armstrong is yelling at the Gazette

The right thing 2 do Lance, would be not 2 use numbers 2 express words for starters. Don't be a 4skin.

Re: “New biz group rides to Springs' rescue

The concept of a new organization that can help the community develop a means of at least having some guns and some butter before it reaches a point of having neither guns nor butter is noble.

Re: “Lance Armstrong is yelling at the Gazette

Lance talking about "ethics" is funny. It's not the doping that bothers me about Lance, it's apart of the sport and will always be there, but he's shown he's just not a good person ever since he was a kid. I know guys who used to go to races and let him crash on hotel room floors. He's a dick through and through.

Re: “Lance Armstrong is yelling at the Gazette

But it's so much easier to write a one-sided piece. No pesky rebuttals or new information to worry about!

Like many others, I used to be a big Armstrong fan... and like many others not so much anymore for all the reasons Ramsey wrote about. But the column may have been a little more substantive with a quote or two from Armstrong. Trying & not getting a response is one thing, but not to try at all is just lazy, IMO.

Re: “Walkability or the Ability to Walk

The University Village shopping center would have been an excellent place to plan more "walkability" access. With its access to the growing UCCS and to an underused waterway it could have been part of a new neighborhood instead of yet another big box complex. It's not too late for the developers to rethink their plans. But then this is Colorado Springs and progressive thinking is not usually part of our plans.

Re: “Drake unit back online

going to be a hard sell by our teabagger mayor to his teabagger minions that replacing Drake will do anything but increase utility bills.

perhaps we should call it the unneeded stadium "tax".

Re: “Walker campaign responds to Gazette editorial controversy

Either attending BoCC meetings in person, or observing them carefully as they are broadcast live on-line provides an excellent opportunity to observe the commissioners. Judging by the comments made on a regular basis by Mrs. Littleton, one wonders of perhaps she is way out of her league as a public official with so many of the issues seeming to sail right over her head. As the demands upon local elected officials increase in complexity, it will take a very alert and intelligent, analytical person to be able to discern the long term impact of their short term decisions. Is that Mrs. Littleton? Her comments today remind me of the advice many an old sage has given:

Be sure your brain is engaged before putting your mouth in gear.

Re: “Memorial Health System money shows tiny gain for city

I have seen and been told by nurses on duty more than once that central supply is closed over the weekend and that is why they cannot get needed supplies. Same with post-surgery physical therapy, including getting patients moving after emergency hip surgery. I'm not prepared to believe nurses are lying to me.

In large part, nurses and other staffers are leaving in droves because cost cutting measures mean they do not have a bearable work load. It does come back to cost cutting more often than not.

It's not that simple, of course. Procedures to reduce infection are unclear and often not followed in the ER, in my experience, and there is little concern for elderly patients who are left on stretchers to soil themselves. Something is very wrong. It's definitely a worse hospital in terms of care now than it was before the UC lease, for whatever reason. It's a shame. It used to be a fantastic facility.

Re: “UPDATE: New claim against Sheriff Maketa

That last quote..."to satisfy Maketa's own personal agenda", should be written on all the checks that will be written for the damage he has caused.
He is a dirty copy, a narcissist and a psychopath and everyone in his agency knows it.
Hoping that the good men and women of EPSO that have been impacted by all of this nonsense can remain strong for the homestretch and that justice will be served.
