Re: “Colorado Springs City Council urged to ban puppy-mill dogs from stores

Just an FYI...Elizabeth is:
Legislative Liaison to the American Kennel Club, a Delegate to the Virginia Federation of Dog Clubs, an AKC Breeder of Merit and a member of the National Animal Interest Alliance.

Of course she does not know about animal welfare.

Re: “Colorado Springs City Council urged to ban puppy-mill dogs from stores

Elizabeth, What planet do you live on? You are a person writing about a subject in which you know nothing about. You imply that everything ever said or written about the welfare of the animals who spend their life in a Puppy Mill is "Fake News". Please, change your subject matter, animal welfare is not your strong suit.

Re: “Election update: Money, an endorsement, a new PR firm

Glad to see actual reporting on campaign finance. Gazette's endorsement made misleading suggestion that Skorman was having problems raising money.

Re: “One last shot at a downtown stadium

Rolf-

Naysayers? Naysayers to what- a bad idea? You bet. It's not that we "don't dream big", it's simply that this is a bad idea. It's a good article and I like reading the column- but my opinion is that it's a bad idea. A lot of people share this opinion.

I have an opinion of what we should do with the downtown area. My opinion is wonderful. Other people have opinions too, I doubt many are as good as mine but I'm sure it'd be a scale.

I'd love to hear other people's opinions on what to do with the downtown area. Actually, some might be better than mine! We've never had the opportunity to discuss this matter, as a city public to the public servants who represent us. The city dropped this proposal, somehow secured funding and got a few rubber stamps, and now what? Where's the money and what are we going to do with it? How many firms did we hire for design and price analysis- for what? This is all wasted money, to a bad idea. If there is money around for some project, get the public in now. Get a comprehensive input to make a unique project for our city.

Or- divert the money to get clean water for residents in our south-end.

Re: “Embracing Compassion - Lives of the Dalai Lama

The Embracing Compassion exhibition was beautiful. The art work was wonderfully presented with such delicate detail for the lighting and spacing. SO so pleasing on the eyes. So glad to have been there to share.

Re: “The legend of Pearl the dog

I remember running into her once, and trying to catch her; obviously, she wouldn't come close enough to grab. After I ran into her, I started following her status on Facebook. I am soo glad that she finally made it home!

Re: “One last shot at a downtown stadium

About the only good thing to come out of the C4C proposal was that it showed how little could be done without public support.

Re: “Reader: Let the transportation marketplace figure it out on its own

Ever since humans began walking upright, they have been searching for better ways to get from point A to point B. Lyft and Uber are the latest entries, and as always new ways are being resisted by those who are invested in the old ways. Mr. Castle is correct. Let the marketplace and the consumers decide.

Re: “One last shot at a downtown stadium

Why put a stadium in the downtown area? We do not have a way to handle the traffic problems it would create, I25 is overcrowded as it is, and the downtown streets are impossible if anything is happening right now. There has to be a better choice that this, one that would have room for parking, while avoiding traffic jams. I know boosters want to draw people to downtown, but this isn't the way.

Re: “One last shot at a downtown stadium

You forgot to mention one little thing about all of us naysayers: we are the ones who get stuck with the bill when all the best laid plans of those who "think big" collapse and fail.

Re: “One last shot at a downtown stadium

Great article and a great idea.

Let's not give up. Please keep writing about this and don't listen to the nay sayers. They always think small.

Let's be like Palmer and Penrose and the others dreamers. It's in our original DNA.

Re: “Reader: Confidential CSPD source is doing the public a disservice

How does Mr. Addy know the anonymous officer did not first "stand up to try to improve the department" from within? Perhaps he did and got nowhere, or, worse yet, was threatened if he did not drop it.

Re: “Colorado Springs City Council urged to ban puppy-mill dogs from stores

Thank you, Ms. Ameno, for exposing Ms. Brinkley. I thought she was a dog breeder trying to protect her profits, but it turns out she is most likely a "media consultant" paid to peddle lies and half-truths for the mill dog industry. She leaves the impression that she could not care less for dogs or their well-being, and probably has never owned one. All she cares about is her paycheck.

Re: “Colorado Springs City Council urged to ban puppy-mill dogs from stores

Ms. Brinkley writes, "If 'adopting' a shelter/rescue dog makes you feel 'better about yourself', you don't need a dog. You need a therapist."

I am sure any competent therapist will tell you that anything that "makes you feel better about yourself," and does no harm to others, is good for your mental health. On the other hand, telling people they need therapy just because you disagree with them, does harm to you both.

Re: “Colorado Springs City Council urged to ban puppy-mill dogs from stores

Elizabeth Turner Brinkley, I am pretty sure you don't live in our town or even our state, as you post similar diatribes in newspapers around the country. You are not at all familiar with the excellent work being done by National Mill Dog Rescue. And as a lover of pure-breds, why wouldn't you applaud a restriction on dogs being sold at pet shops? A responsible breeder is not going to place their pups in a situation where they cannot be assured of responsible owners.

Re: “Dragon Gate's kitchen is quite lively

I've been saying it for a long time... Dragon Gate for Strong Mayor!!!!!!!
Thirty plus years of consistent, solid food.
And a big plus is their willingness to customize... try requesting the egg foo yung with no cornstarch!!!
I adore Dragon Gate... I'd say in thirty years I could count on one hand the number of times it was disappointing.
