Re: “Lathen, Suthers start mayoral race

What is known about Lathen - revealed by her strong advocacy for building a downtown stadium - is that she is not a fiscal conservative. She, along with other City Leaders, is going to get the stadium built and make us pay for it. To Lathen, it's none of our business and what we think about it is irrelevant. To promote building a stadium for tourists and think that will result in year-round economic prosperity is delusional. Millions of dollars of future sales tax revenue will go to paying the debt to build the stadium, dollars that will be unavailable to spend on essential city/county services. What then? Obviously, taxes will have to be raised. Also, based on Lathen's support of the stadium, she will likely be susceptible to other hairbrained visionary schemes concocted by City Leaders and "experts". Knowing what needs doing to attract businesses and jobs requires expertise Lathen does not possess.

An ordinance will soon be presented to the council that will give the citizens the right to vote on the stadium component of C4C. If you want your voice to be heard at the ballot box, email city council members at allcouncil@springsgov.com and tell them to vote for the ordinance.

Re: “Local NAACP courts controversy

no you are not telling the truth. You are a radical wanting to defund public education and have vouchers for religious extremist schools ran by the likes of Klingenschmitt the exorcist. the paid members of NAACP said no and the education chair tabled it until the pros and cons could both be presented by non candidates. Tell the truth!!

LET'S TAKE IT ALL THE WAY TO THE US SUPREME COURT- Louisiana Gay Marriage Ban Upheld By Federal Judge Posted: 09/03/2014 12:51 pm

Feldman noted that his was the only federal court to uphold a gay marriage ban since the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act last year.

The court "hesitates with the notion that this state's choice could only be inspired by hate and intolerance," the judge wrote, holding that Louisiana "has a legitimate interest ... whether obsolete in the opinion of some, or not, in the opinion of others ... in linking children to an intact family formed by their two biological parents."

Re: “This could leave a mark

He'ill be elected as he has an R behind his name and the usual homophobic lines. Like Ted Cruz, he's a toxic type who knows what plays in Peoria and throws out a steady stream of raw meat to feed the fears and hates of the sheeple. He knows once he has people angry and/or afraid that he can control their votes and money.

The city will remain the national laughing stock, infrastructure will keep crumbling, industry will avoid our city, and preppers will buy more guns and ammo for an apocalypse they're bringing on us all every time they vote for one of these mouthy pied pipers.

Re: “This could leave a mark

religious freaks on one side, gun worshipping rednecks on the other side...

the only question is how many rational moderate people reside in the center??

go forward or continue to be the laughing stock of the country... vote and at least you have made a choice.

Re: “Local NAACP courts controversy

and again...supporting the NAACP mission means you understand that in 1860 the organization was formed after SCOTUS gave us PLessy VS Ferguson or better known as Separate but Equal which dealt with education equality.We are still fighting for equality in education so that a poor child in Mississippi gets the same math and English education as a rich kid in the Broadmoor, and here comes those kind white people saying the government shouldn't intrude. I think I heard a resounding "thanks but no thanks" from the NAACP members to your "no solution" program. Been there, done that, still living Brown VS Board of Education.

Re: “Local NAACP courts controversy

no, Ms. Null you again are trying to re-write history. The members of the local NAACP chapter were not sent the usual email, informing everyone of a special speaker or forum. So, it seems only a select group was notified. Then the tea party whackos gave out a flier with all the whacko buzz words about common core educational standards..."government intrusion" "no local control" " Home Schoolers beware." Rosemary Harris Lytle is the president of the regional NAACP and would therefore have every right to help the Vice Chair who was caught between a rock and group of idiots trying to run the meeting. And Peggy LittleTON is a member of Oath Keepers, went to the Cliven Bundy rescue meeting in Nevada with asshat Maketa, and supports that knucklehead in Ferguson who says he will shoot everyone because he is the last line of defense and obeys only laws he likes. Tell the truth or shut up.

We need a strong Independent or Libertarian in that district. We don't need extremists on either side.

Re: “And then he said ...

Thanks, Bryce, for this dandy sampler of Klingensmith quotes. As always, his words are beyond belief. If elected, one shudders at the actions he may take. One thing is certain: What voters see is what they will get with him. Perhaps deservedly so.

Re: “This could leave a mark

Yes, Ms. Le Lait, Colo(R)ado Sp(R)ings is the capitol of crazy. Sadly, should Rep. Doug Lamborn ever leave office, local voters would give strong consideration to replacing him with Klingensmith or another uberconservative who lacks style and substance.

Re: “Local NAACP courts controversy

Active members would have known about this informational meeting for months. It was not Democrat or Republican. It was for information only. By the by, I wasn't allowed to speak. Remember? That is why I left the room. I don't think you know me as I don't have a "group." I am fully committed to the mission of the NAACP. Had I been allowed to speak, my suggestion was to let candidates who are running for office speak. You should also be careful about accusing an elected official of future violence. The lady behind me came with a prepared statement - which she read, yet she stated she didn't know about the meeting. If there is a sub-group, then she was definitely their pawn. The NAACP has had the information put out on Facebook and their website and the next month's meeting is always stated at the end of the meeting. Yet she didn't know? What turned the informational meeting into politics was that lady behind me and then Rosemary Harris taking over the meeting from the Vice President.

Re: “Local NAACP courts controversy

Ms. Null...I was there...as were you...which part of this article do you think is incorrect? Perhaps the part where your group was addressed by a gentleman who said he was offended that you thought he was naive or stupid enough to not notice the tea party overtures? Littleton has big balls to be associated with the Oath Keepers and then show up at a meeting addressing the very people she would shoot in a heart beat.

Re: “See him run

Supreme Court says corporations can be people which seriously implies that people can be corporations. If corporations are composed of many people, then so can marriage be a corporation of multiple people if all of them sign-on to the binding contract. Bring on plural marriage. Hip Hip Hooray! Thank you Supreme Court!

I wonder how social conservatives like the Supreme Court now that its "corporations are people" ruling has essentially destroyed the 1-man 1-woman concept of marriage. It's about time we got religion out of the marriage contract for those who so choose.

Oh, Adrian, repeating someone else's words with no background information easily gleaned from Google. No need to interview parties involved, just be a mouthpiece. Where did you study Journalism?

Re: “The end of school

Darren, I think you're right... traditional school is mainly good for just that- preparing kids for structured corporate settings devoid of passion. People are currently trained to do some rather brainless task, then search for a sense of individuality and meaning in consumerism. I think it's wonderful that Colorado allows this type of experimentation. Far better for a young woman or man to be gainfully employed at a local small business than wasting time memorizing history facts so that they can go to college only to be saddled with a bunch of debt, which in turn necessitates working some lame corporate job.
