Re: “So you want to work in a dispensary?

Re: “Ready, set, go ... to college

You have a real ability for writing unique Ready, set, go ... to college after College content. I like how you think and the way you represent your views in this article. I agree with your way of thinking. Thank you for sharing.

Sex toys are not branded for people of groups or something. Individuals are living longer and healthy lives today than ever before to is helping to shift the mindset about the topic too

Re: “An envoy from our state's National Renewable Energy Laboratory arrives armed with solutions

Let's see how many of the good folks on City Council who sit as the Utility Board once a month attend the presentation. Also be interesting to see how many Mayoral and council candidates show up.

Re: “Linking into Citizens' Climate Lobby

Ms. Durand, there is a local group of folks that have been working to close the Martin Drake Power Plant near downtown Colorado Springs. We have a public Facebook page that you can join the Martin Drake Power Plant Retirement Club. If you want to learn more about the ill effects of Drake check out

There are five stages of political activism:

1. Like a Facebook page to express outrage.
2. Send an email to your friends and family.
3. Send a letter to the editor denouncing Drake.
4. Attend the Colorado Springs Utilities Board Meeting on February 18.
5. Inspire other like minded people to become activists against burning coal.

I hope to see you at the next CSU Board Meeting

Re: “Toys for pots

Really wish I could get my hand on a nectar collector. But 250 $ is way to much for just a smoking apparatus. If you know of any knockoffs please post

Re: “Toys for pots

I will have to disagree with the health stone part of this article. I have had one for about 3 month, and used it once your concentrate runs straight thru the porous stone and right in to your rig. worst 60 $ ever spent .

Sorry about the typo - I meant polar vortex instead of solar vortex. AWEA''s report is at:…

Re: “Not so fast there, sunny

We are losing out on opportunities to own more diverse resources at low cost. Meanwhile AWEA reports that wind energy saved ratepayers $1Billion during the solar vortex last year because it is fuel-free and tends to drive down prices. A mix of wind and solar facilities can help save us money when fuel costs rise during periods of high demand.

Re: “Not so fast there, sunny

These people in city government have to start paying attention to our infrastructure which is actually the job they are supposed to be doing. Spending money on nonsense is all they do (obviously the streets they drive on are not the same ones I do). Contracting construction companies to pave and repair all our roads and bridges would put a lot people to work. People who have good paying jobs will spend that money and that is how the economy works. Good roads and bridges attract businesses and visitors and their money. It really is that simple. When wind and solar are absolutely necessary then we can deal with it at that time. Perhaps companies that manufacture or want to manufacture wind and solar equipment could be persuaded to have their operations here. That is the future. Coal and hydroelectric will soon be outdated and unavailable. We have wind and sun with open space (but we have too much hot air).

Re: “Not so fast there, sunny

How pathetic that our city council drags its feet and lets this opportunity slip away. Shameful and downright embarrassing!

Re: “Not so fast there, sunny

Everyone hates rate increases, yet wants this expensive junk. Everyone has to pay for this drop-in-the-bucket of energy. Poor decision making all around... Keep making those kinds of decisions, and watch your bill continue to rise.

Re: “Not so fast there, sunny

This has all the finger prints of Pico and his ilk. What a sad legacy Pico is building for himself and members of the Utility Board.

Re: “Not so fast there, sunny

Who are the legislative officials with whom talks are underway to extend the Energy certificate deadline? Let's hope that goes through!

Also you didn't mention that the new wind power purchase is a more than 80% decrease from 108,000 units we purchased previously, to 20,000 units. Very disappointing choice from our Utility Board.

Re: “Planning for population growth and water scarcity in the West

Funny how the same people that don't want to close the border and say "No Mas" also complains about the pressure on natural resources from population growth. In 1920 this type of practice was called Communism.

I loved reading this story. I met this woman at Bear Creek and loved watching her team work with all of the goats.
