Re: “One local man's goodbye to the NRA

If Broadway Joe (hello to Al Kaufman, LT White, Cpt Turner and the rest of the 3/8 Cav from 1976) is against this, well I'm joining the NRA next week. The guy is always on the prod for publicity, not stability. NRA...check is on the way; and I believe in the 2nd amendment anyway. When Joe's GG-grandfather was back in the old country, mine was with Gen'l Sullivan defending the right Joe seems ready to throw away. Don't tread on me.

Re: “UPDATE: Bible verse gets Mikey going, again

Mr. K. It was Chappynash who pointed out the info regarding the Virginia Statute for a Religious a Freedom. Also, I believe that Tennessee was the state the forbade clergy from serving in legislature, but it also denied Athiests and dualist a place as well. You can talk of God, Providence etc. but the undeniable fact is that the religious foundation that lay the ground work for our system of government was Christian. Now our founders recognized the need to protect all faiths hence the Establishment a Clause and Free Exercise Clause, however, in today's liberal thinking, there is a very REAL push to remove faith expression from all public/government entities. It is a purge that guys like Mikey seek, not freedom.

Re: “Colorado Springs settles Memorial case for $885,000

I would like to know exactly how Memorial's mistake caused her permanent damage. This article does not provide enough information for any reader to know enough to comment.

Re: “Colorado cornucopia

There does seem to be a large selection of food and drink besides the restaurants. I love visiting local farmer's markets. There is nothing like fresh, home grown fruit and veggies.

Re: “Is marijuana causing your man-boobs?

IIRC there were studies linking MJ and gynecomastia in the 1970s. I remember teasing a couple hemp-headed friends about it.

Re: “Colorado Springs settles Memorial case for $885,000

This is exactly why our medical care is so expensive, having to pay for such frivolous lawsuits. She effectively took all that money right out of our collective pockets. This woman is an opportunistic leech.

PCMS has over 300 culturally significant sites.

Re: “UPDATE: PERA lawsuit? Don't blame me, mayor says

Bach was squarely in the middle of this scam, with Melcher, before the new council members and council president were elected. At the time, Bach stated that he wanted to get out from under PERA because the City could not sustain that cost. He was willing to take the money owed to dedicated Memorial employees to pay for other upcoming pet projects (C4C). Then he outsourced fleet services. Surprise, surprise!!! He needs to man-up and admit that he was a big part of this big mistake. Jan Martin did spin her comment. Setting the money aside was the only thing PERA was going to allow, until the matter was settled. Martin should have also done her due diligence and read the PERA law instead of relying on what Melcher and the Mayor were saying and trying to do. If you read the PERA law, it is crystal clear that Melcher and Bach had not followed the process for withdrawing from PERA and that they did not want to pay PERA what it was clearly owed to PERA and their Memorial employees.

I love Spice Island Grill. That's a shame.

Re: “Coquette to open, Spice Island to close? More food news

....thinking with fairness in mind....IF it was the accountants fault and 'twas money owed to the IRS that wasn't paid, possibly Spice should be selling gift certificates that can be redeemed, take the help/charity now, but pay it back later...in the form of yummy food!

Re: “Is marijuana smoking really smoking when it's vaporizer steam?

Look we have ecigs and you have vape pens for hash and marijuana. Are the people goingto start getting harassment from police officers over speculation. If they're not sure just leave it alone. I think if there's a car accident or something of that nature then there's cause for alarm. But it seems like ecigs are the thing now and consumption of regular cigarettes may just possibly become obsolete.

Re: “Carson wants more intense use of PCMS

Let's see if I understand this. They are reducing the number of BCT's at Carson from 4 to 3 but they propose a dramatic increase in use of PCMS. Counter intuitive. I know there is a ready answer. I know they already have this idea scripted down to the punctuation needed. The rest is smoke and mirrors

Re: “UPDATE: City keeps info on Jenkins' donation under wraps

From looking at El Paso County land records it appears that the donated parcel is less than worthless from a developers viewpoint, as it is unsuitable for development and would simply be a tax burden. In the link below, the donated land is the horizontal strip just to the north of the highlighted area.

http://gis2.asr.elpasoco.com/?Sched=530620…

It is unclear from the article whether the author was thinking this is somehow related to favoritism in the C4C arena, but I would say its more likely just a standard developer/city backroom deal where the city pays to upgrade the bridge so the developer can more easily sell his properties.
