Re: “Former employees speak out against accused "pot doc"

Doctors will not discuss the use of marijuana with patients. Unless someone is dying from cancer a primary care physician will not sign the paperwork for fear of Federal retribution on their prescription number. This has created a niche for what many will call a marijuana Dr. For over 10 years I talked to Dr.'s about pain management for my back and all them said just use it BUT I can't sign that paperwork.

While some of these Dr.'s are just signing paperwork they are consulting with the patient as required by law. Make no mistake that they are able to make money for signing their paperwork and see many patients in a day because a niche market has been created because they are the only Dr's willing to make the medical marijuana recommendation.

I don't approve of the price gauging for the visit, the charge for plant counts or not having proper ID. I do know I use the same Dr. every year for renewal and have discussed the medical records that I brought from my primary Dr and my MRI.

Re: “Bearden finds her true self as transgender athlete

I find being called 'transgenders' somewhat inappropriate; our gender is not all that defines us. 'Transgender people' would be better. One no longer uses that part of speech when referring to people with disabilities either methinks. They are not their disability either.

Re: “Some Air Force Academy cadets never have a chance — and they leave feeling defeated

Yes when you join the military they critcize EVERYTHING you do and give you instructions for EVERYTHING!! Especially officers. There is a reason for it. They need to know you can follow simple instructions that do not matter before they give you major instructions in which lives will be at stake if they are not adhered too. It isn't bullying, it isn't racist and it isn't brainwashing you into a cult. It is a carefully developed plan for the cadets professional development. It is not perfect ofcourse, and every branch is constantly adjusting their regimen, but the military has been developing soldiers/sailors/marines/airmen for over 240 years, and in doing so have developed the finest and deadliest military in the world. With such a track record, they will not conform to the individual, but rather require the individual to conform into what they know they need him/her to be

Re: “Photo tour: Platte River Trail hike

My son and I are planning a trip on this trail. I have had a very hard time using the National Forest web site but this has made it much easier. Thank you Bob. I want to print the photos to make the trail easier to follow. We are new at this but looking forward to the hike and dispersed camping there.

Re: “City, Broadmoor negotiating over portions of the city's water system

When the City's PUBLIC WORKS properties are at stake public discussions and citizen input should take place at the very beginning of the process. The way this city administration works is to first secure a deal and then try to "sell the finalized deal" to the citizens of this community. Public Works property is protected property. Historic Parkland and water resources are the CROWN JEWELS of our communiy's real estate holdings! They can never be replaced once they are "disposed of".

Word has it that the Broadmoor has submitted a WRITTEN CLAIM FOR MILLIONS against the city blaming it for their golf course sliding off the mountain. Now they're currently using that bargaining chip to intimidate the city to "sell, trade, swap, transfer, or dispose of" our valuable water resource.

My take on the sliding golf course is that when the Broadmoor bulldozed the golf course, and tore out all the scrub oaks that bordered each fairway on Broadmoor South golf course, that was the cause of their property sliding down the mountain.

I wonder if the Broadmoor is using the same "environmental expert" they used to support the Sale of Strawberry Field who claimed the City is better off financially by giving away their PUBLIC WORKS property!

Re: “Carlos' Bistro

For our 20th anniversary, our children arranged an evening at this world class restaurant. We were warmly greeted in the parking lot by Carlos and escorted to our table by Marcia. Mere words cannot describe the experience. They have a perfect level of attention to every detail, amazing layers of flavor, and service as if you were their only guest. The menu is unmatched and the Crème Brulee is like no other. Thank you for this wonderful memory.

Re: “New details about Trump's elevator escapade

The elevator incident turns out to be no mystery; the Trump staffer with the key turned it off between floors. Yes, we should trust this man and his staff with the nuclear launch codes...…
