Re: “Runaway

ArcheAge is an MMORPG developed by Korean developer Jake Song (former developer of Lineage) and his development company, XL Games. The game was released in Korea on January 15, 2013, Europe and North America on September 16, 2014, and has also had a closed beta in China. ArcheAge is described as a "sandpark" MMORPG, which the developers say is a hybrid of the open content style of a "sandbox" game and the more structured play experience of a "themepark" game.

Re: “Here, kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty ...

A true apocalypse "dogs and cats living together", free range and all that stuff. Its the end of times. Where is Gordon Klingenschimdtt when we need him? But who are you going to call? Yes, its time to elect Bill Murray to the City Council.

Re: “Here, kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty ...

Finally! I've heard rumors about what was happening at America the Beautiful, and I am so glad that our city has decided to support its feline-loving citizens. This is almost better than City for Champions!

Re: “Eye in the sky?

Here something to STRONGLY consider. Small drones with electric motors, with landing pads placed in various locations within the city, they could be anywhere within a couple minutes if they were strategically placed. Also, with the military using them, get them involved to train and evolve their troops. Electric motors have zero maintenance compared to gas powered vehicles, and could be made very quiet. To me there is NO comparison. I ran vehicle repair shops for almost two decades, maintenance and the insurance and upkeep will kill ya.

"Brittain clearly enjoys the attention. And the way he sees things going, he'll always be able to get it."

Clearly he doesn't. Brittain has applied to have HIS pictures removed from the internet. Baby can dish it but not take it.

Re: “Welcome to Kolorado, Klan Kountry

My grandfather, Gerome Torribio, was a first generation Italian immigrant living in Trinidad during the 1920s. One day the Klan marched downtown where he worked in a hardware store. He spotted the mayor in the parade, and called out, "Hey, Mayor, why are you hiding in that bedsheet? I know you from your worn-out brown shoes!" That night, the Klan burned a cross on the top of Simpson's Rest behind his house. That's a family story we are proud of--thanks for this article.

Re: “Welcome to Kolorado, Klan Kountry

Perhaps, Mr. BobCo, the two articles would not have seemed so similar if you bothered to read past the first paragraph. Apparently, you missed this paragraph from the article above: "In the spring of 1924, Klan members packed the precinct caucuses of both the Democratic and Republican parties..."

Re: “Welcome to Kolorado, Klan Kountry

This story is basically a copy of another story I read about the Klan in Colorado. Major exception is that this author left out some key facts that would have been embarrassing to his political agenda. The very first paragraph is almost a complete copy from the original story except that this author decided to omit the fact that the Klan took over both the Democrat and Republican parties.
It was probably very easy to take over the Democrats since it was the democratic party that started this disgusting organization. The Republicans took a little more time and pressure.
I'm so glad the Indy has never wavered in reporting fake news and stories. At least I can always count on you guys to lie in everything you say.

Re: “Back in the saddle

If you look at what other cities are doing to improve bicycling to our north and south, it's time to catch up! Pueblo, Ft. Collins, Denver even Lone Tree. We can do this.

Re: “Back in the saddle

Thank you to the Indy and a shout out to J. Adrian Stanley for such a wonderful article capturing many of the efforts that are part of the "pedal revolution" happening in Colorado Springs.

Our mode share number, a percentage point that reflects how many people choose to utilize a bicycle as a mode of transportation is very low, and for many reasons. However, with our non-motorized trail system, on-street bicycle facilities and the many connections/improvements ready to go for 2015/16, it's only going to get easier to choose to use your bike in lieu of an automobile.

Are there areas of our fair City that provide much larger challenges than others, you bet. It's a reflection of how we prioritized building over the past 15-20 years and it's going to take a bit of time to create safe, welcoming and easy to use corridors for non-motorized users but the work IS being done.

Re: “Back in the saddle

Thanks to the Independent for putting this story out, bike commuting is woefully underrepresented in Colorado Springs and needs all the publicity it can get. I'm looking forward to seeing the Cottonwood Creek Trail connection to the Greenway finished, that should go a long way towards making bike travel an attractive option for folks in the Briargate area.

Re: “Back in the saddle

Improvements are happening. The new Bike Lanes along Templeton Gap are great but then they kind of just dump you out on Wahsatch near Bon Shopping Center. I would love to see it hook up with Weber and then create a bike lane from Jefferson all the way down to the police station. Weber doesnt really need four car lanes anyway. Weber is also a great candidate for protected bike lanes.…

Re: “Puppy love

Maybe most homeless people in Colorado Springs are every bit as kind to their animals and attend to their needs as devotedly as the experts in this story insist. I have no way of knowing this for certain (and, I would suggest, the experts really don't either, as the homeless who seek out food and medical care for their animals are a self selected group who may or may not represent the population as a whole). That said, when a dog, as the one in this story, is abandoned without food or water during the coldest days of winter for five days after a violent episode, trapped beneath the remnants of a tent, unable to move on and seek water or food, it seems to me that if the law requires returning this "property" to its owner is unbendable, the law should be scrutinized and possibly modified.

Re: “Trapped in the dying mall

Does anyone remember the Wicks-n-Sticks at The Citadel Mall? My parents owned the store. They had to sell during the financial crisis in the late 80s. The stock market crashed in '87.
