Re: “Old School Tavern

I used to LOVE hanging our here. But recently, the music is HORRIBLE and the crowd is not 30 and over anymore. When you get there early, they play old school, but they play the same 20 or so songs every weekend. Then around 11:30 or midnight, the old school music goes away and the younger crowd starts to come in. WTH? Change your name if you are not going to really play old school music. I can take a flash drive out my car and plug it in to your system and speakers and have that place bumping. There are thousands of old school songs you can choose from to play. Choose more then just 20. Really, we need the old school music back and the 30 and over crowd. And P.S. Your bartender, Karen, is the bomb! :-)

Re: “Stratton Open Space fire mitigation delayed after residents object to extreme treatment

Mitigation through selective thinning is an important tool in managing our public lands. The problem I see is that these public agencies that handle the process sometimes cut too deep. Rather than giving the forest a nice selective "trim," and perhaps thinking they might not get a chance (or the dollars) to thin again for another 25-50 years, they sometimes end up giving the forest more of a "buzz cut."

What I see in the slideshow pics looks fairly good. However, I cannot imagine what they were thinking in planning to thin such a lush riparian spring area (in that last 8 acres or so). Thinning across the landscape should not be universal. North slopes, for example, are expected to be more naturally lush. And while montane pine forests often saw natural underbrush clearing ground fires and are better candidates for manual selective thinning today, the subalpine spruce / fir forest instead experiences "stand replacing" fire events every 200-400 years, and thinning in the subalpine should be limited. Unfortunately sometimes this ends up not being the case.

In this case, kudos to the city for pulling back on thinning the Stratton Springs border. That appears to be the right call. There is balance to be found. We can both care for and protect the beauty of our public lands.

Re: “More than three years after Waldo, our overgrown forests still threaten the city

This is all BS. If they are stupid enough to remove trees from hill and mountain sides, they deserve the mudslides that are going to come. People are going to die. A lot of those trees need fire to propagate too. Don't be idiots. Leave the trees alone. On a side note. If you move to an area that is prone to fires, you're stupid and deserve to die. Just like the morons who move on to a flood plain. Try using some common sense. Nature works in the correct way, and human involvement usually ends in screwing things up. Leave it all alone.

Re: “District 11 will ask voters again for a tax increase in November

Based on the size of the recent back door tax increase, a.k.a. El Paso County's increased property tax assessment, this group should have 8% more funding next year without doing anything.

Re: “Trifecta bares it all onstage

I'm sorry but these women aren't queer. They are married and straight and a poor choice for the Independent to display them as a representative as a LGBTQ burlesque performer.

Re: “Region must be proactive on transportation, and here's how to do it

I have been saying for years that a continuous light rail from the Springs to Denver, even Ft. Collins, would be huge. Think of concerts, events, games, connecting to UnionStation, also with a connection to the airport. More jobs, less I25 congestion. It'd be great for University students to commute to Denver, too.

Re: “Reader: Free speech is for everyone except Christians

Yes Clearly seeing it With the freedom comes responsibility. You cant yell fire in crowded room. It hurts others. Also you should not talk about your religion and expect respect if your not willing to here others and afford them the same respect. Freedom of speech is granted to all of us not just those that claim to be Christian for there own benefit.

Re: “Region must be proactive on transportation, and here's how to do it

Gee wiz. "like solving obesity with a bigger set of pants". We need to stop the backwards thinking of the well-intentioned older generation which refuses to consider the innovations of the newer age. Wasting millions of dollars on an infrastructure which is already outdated- bad, bad idea, but the norm for COS. How about a common sense idea like a light-rail? How about actually moving towards an awesome solution to the problem? How about recognizing Denver and the region as one of the fastest growing areas of the country, and moving to address the issue like a modern city would? Gee wiz the leadership and influence of this area are simply as backwards as can be.
