Re: “Animal control steps up leash-law enforcement

I am disgusted with people these days! I hike a trail twice a week and once in a while there is a dog on a leash. There is so much dog crap on and along the trial it's ridiculous and it stinks terribly. Then you have those people that put it in a bag and leave it. I just don't get people. If your going to have a dog then you need to be responsible. Also I have dogs nearly trip me up because they weren't on a leash and running wild. I've seen other people get chased by dogs and tripped up as well. Some people are scared of dogs too. That's not me, I just think people should be more responsible. There's a sign stating that dogs MUST be on a leash and YOU MUST pick up after your dog. I'm sure that all of this dog crap is not good for our water and environment.

Re: “Too far to the left

Part of an "agenda" might be dropping shows like this to cater to a subset of an audience. You have to realize that Colorado Springs is one of the most right wing cities on the planet and if you want to cater to that audience, you need to just switch to Fox news, because that's the only way they will be happy. With decisions such as this, KRCC runs the risk of losing the appeal that it has had over the years as the only non-corporate source of radio programming in the Pikes Peak Region. There is a very real risk of losing what makes the station appealing to the segments of the audience that have kept the station going. Believe me, I now live temporarily in Indiana and there is no comparison with the public radio here. Except now I guess there is.

Re: “Pastor blaster

Gardner lost the case and that fact is on record so how is it Pam Zubeck didn't get that right? The Office of Administrate Courts has a file on it so how is Gardner claiming he didn't lose the case or claim it to be false. In Bobs own little world things must be different. He clearly has some issues with reality and he wants people to vote for him.
Below is the final agency decision Bob says is false. There, there Bob reality is bummer.

Ms. Zubeck you must have drank the Kool-Aid from the fountain of Bob. Please take the time to read the actual decision. Bob might want to seek the services of Aspen Point for his inability to cope with "loss".

Re: “Pastor blaster

To add a point made earlier, Bob Gardner avoids issues by simply not being the "direct" party to such actions. Case in point, Bobs client failed to file a report on time with the Colorado Secretary of State. The fine was not Bobs but he was the attorney of record and should have filed for his client on time. See Bob sails under the Radar. Now if you think I am endorsing anyone, not true. I asked Mr. K about his military mishap and he wore his uniform and that violated an order but he didn't hide his actions. He took action to get the rule changed and he did. Bob has no character and as such a character debate would be pointless. I did post Mr. K's mailer as Bob didn't send me one. I am controversial and outspoken but I have onions and come from Boston. Bob thinks he is untouchable but even Capone got his. Bob lets his clients take the heat for his bad advise. This is how Bob skates thru life unscathed. Other people use moxy and resilience. Bob just uses people. Now who is the better candidate? You get to decide. Please stop by my controversial site if you dare. https://ronpaceforwoodmenhills.wordpress.c…

Re: “Pastor blaster

I am Mr. Pace the person depicted in the flyers of which this matter is all about.
The flyers were produced with funds from three developers in Colorado Springs. Randel Case, Benjamin Green and John Wiepking. These individuals used their bank accounts and assistance from notorious members of the "community".
A fact left off this article is Zubeck is wrong and some of these unsavory characters have done this before.
In 2012 an organization called "The Truth Squad" failed to file any such reports as required by law and Gardner was their attorney. The cost was over 15,000. He is lying to save face when in fact Bob placed a lien on 100% disabled veterans home. The reason; I sued the "Alliance" for sending out flyers making outright false claims to alter and interfere in a water board election by notorious board members and developers. The results are clear, the effect was simple it was aimed to put my family in harms way and to force us out. Even certain EPSO deputies have joined in the fight. The claims were the result of Sarah Jack, Woodmen Hills (board members) "community members" and the "Alliance". Facts are facts, Bob lied to keep up appearances for his candidacy in the senate race. Bob accused me of future criminal wrong doing in the OAC matter and the judge didn't by it. His other client and well known hack screamed like a attack victim during the proceeding so much the judge admonished her three time then told her to quit. Bob is an "officer of the court" and knew he had a duty (canons act) to report the actions of the committees and he failed by giving out advise to "not" file reports to hid the unscrupulous acts of developers who want to remain anonymous to save face in the eyes of their fellow HBA brethren. Bob uses weak minded people when ever he can. Bob gave his clients poor legal advise an it cost them 9650.00. You can bet Bob collected his fees for service and he continues to represent these troglodytes. The new compliant is accurate. Mrs. Zubeck you like so many fall for "Mr. Republican Party" all the time. Bobs screaming client admitted to taking Bobs legal advice under oath. Bobs own utterances at trial showed he was the one who guided his clients and lied about having developers as clients when asked. He said "the statue ran" is the reason for not filing the reports. Bob has no character and he wanted me to turn over my Harley Davidson motorcycle to him in court and he just laughed smugly afterward. To quote my CSGTM from the Army, "its not the fall, its the stop that hurts. Bob's fall will be historic.

Re: “A tangled web of city strife

The exhibits are a clear window showing why City Leaders and council members want Collins off the council. Collins challenges the misspending of taxpayer dollars AND she insists that the rules of law, as enumerated in the Charter, be followed. Such unorthodox and radical behavior by this nonconformist councilwoman will not be tolerated.

Murray's capitulation to the status quo is because, as he says, he has no supporters among the other council members and therefore he will not stand alone against the majority. Without backup, he will not do what he knows to be the right thing to do. Murray is no Jefferson Smith. The lawlessness of Collins fellow councilors is shocking. Collins fearless adherence to the rule of law is stunning. Collins integrity and courage is staggeringly admirable. The citizens need and deserve more members on the council like Collins, whose loyalty is to the citizens who elected her to office, rather than to the City Leaders and their developer cronies.

Council members misdeeds go beyond the “appearance of impropriety” and ethics charges should be brought against THEM and examined in a public hearing. As Councilman King told the Gazette, "I want her to file complaints and get somebody to rule on these things."

Re: “A tangled web of city strife

Who is Colorado Ethics Watch looking out for when the director TORO says
"This is kind of an old stunt"? How is that objective? If there really was a problem with Collins' actions then it should not have been drawn out and allowed to just hang in the air.

Re: “Pastor blaster

As a Navy veteran I'm ashamed a grifter like Klingenschmidt has the right to claim being a Navy veteran in his efforts to fool the public. Sorry, y'all.

Good riddance! I'm glad that KCMJ will get more quality programming and exposure AND that KRCC has the common sense to give its listeners what they want. Win-win-win.

Re: “A tangled web of city strife

Collin’s “List of Grievances” - as the Gazette’s front-page article yesterday headlined her ethics complaints against Council - requires a deeper response than that offered by Councilman King, who said he was “bewildered” and “Who’s defining benefits?”

The article noted that “5 of the 9 council members are in Washington D.C. this week, meeting with Colorado’s congressional delegation, senators and officials at the Pentagon.” 5 councilors in D.C. this week, conducting important business for the City on behalf of the taxpayers. Coincidently, the Pope is also in D.C. on an historic visit.

As for the appointment of a new judge for Collin’s ethics hearing, King said “That decision hasn’t been made to make the decision (on her ethics complaints) ourselves.”

Murray's meddling and telling Collin's to "settle" the ethics charge against her is odd, since Council President Bennett said the worst Council can do to Collins is tell her, "Don't do it again." $42K has been wasted so far. Add to that the Judge's fee of $450/hour still to come. And more attorney fees. And City staff hours. And misc expenses. This witch hunt will cost the taxpayers $100K by the time the Judge utters the words, "Don't do it again."

Pam: 6 exhibits are referenced but not included in the linked document. Are they available?

Re: “Too far to the left

We love KRCC, but we are committed to filling the void. The voices that conservative corporate media shut out, KCMJ will offer a microphone. Any voices that KRCC cannot carry, KCMJ will step up. KRCC will continue to serve a very important purpose and provide real value in our community. But it seems if you want to hear something like Democracy Now, you'll need to turn to KCMJ. We are also running Talk Nation Radio, Alternative Radio, Bioneers, Counterspin, Radio Ecoshock, Free Speech Radio News and Community Progressive News. What can I say? Thank goodness!

Re: “Too far to the left

KRCC is a valuable community asset that shouldn't be conforming to the pressures of media to be ever more corporatist or the pressures of an overpopulation of right wingers to neglect the liberal side of politics. I might add it was probably the ONLY liberal news voice in this region.

Re: “Pastor blaster

Irrespective of the Klingenschmitt issues -
Bob Gardner & Sarah Jack (and their little political committee smear group) are CONVICTED lawbreakers - it's a matter of public record.
(See "The Lawmaker is a Lawbreaker? Rep. Bob Gardner loses Campaign Finance Complaint, fined nearly $10,000" )

Bob's "denial" of his court loss is a flat-out LIE.

OBTW, Gardner and Jack are headed back to court, yet again -
he'll be facing a District Court judge in an action to enforce his $10,000 nonpayment, AND facing an administrative court judge to answer for another nearly 2 dozen additional counts of violating state law.
(See "Serial Scofflaws Robert Gardner and Sarah Jack headed back to Court" )

Re: “Pastor blaster

Irrespective of the Klingenschmidt issues, Laugesen's group, as a 501c(4) has broken the law repeatedly by "electioneering." They funded recall petition gathering which is obviously electioneering. Perhaps the Secretary of State should be contacted about wait, the Secretary of State is supported financially and politically by the same individuals and groups that want Helen Collins removed. Never mind.
