Re: “Parting words from the Sage

How can I translate my feelings about your exit? Adios, Arrivederci, Auf Wiedersehen, Sayonara or just plain, Don't let the door hit you in the ass.

For years you've been espousing your leftist, out-of-touch Bullsh!t in this rag and now you're leaving, it's a step in the right direction for the Independent and yet the smattering of indoctrinated zombie drone followers you have can still follow your rantings at the even less popular and dwindling readership of the C/S Business Journal. Yeah, sounds about right, you're going out with a whimper......

You're are a failed Investment Banker, Real Estate Broker, Politician and now, Journalist...... Your accomplishments are even less than your insights. What a fantastic and insightful life you've had......
S-A-R-C-A-S-M button OFF.

If you really care for the city you claim to love then go to Tahiti, GO, BE FREE...... Maybe just maybe your idiotic rantings will be forgotten by your minions so that they can then become contributing members to society.

Buh Bye.......

Re: “Opposition researcher looking into Council race

The Indy broke a story from Ms. Zubeck third week of Dec 2016 about concerns Council Member Gaebler had about 'mPACT' a local group working to secure the services of a professional lobby organization in Washington DC - and brought up the need to use city funds to assist with the pay for a grant writer for 'mPACT' - with the grant writer being Whitley Crow, the daughter of Lynette Crow-Iverson.

Lynette Crow-Iverson is the candidate heavily funded by the development community and Colorado Springs Forward to run against Jill Gaebler.

By the first week in February, 2017 - - an 'investigative researcher' in Washington DC is looking for details on Ms. Gaebler and her tenure with her former employer through formal CORA request to the city?

In conjunction with a similar request for information on the ethics issue that resulted in a failed recall attempt of Council Member Collins by another candidate in this years council race funded by who: the development community and Colorado Springs Forward - formerly chaired by Lynette Crow-Iverson.

Deborah Hendrix is the candidate heavily funded by the development community and Colorado Springs Forward to run against Helen Collins.

This week featured a rather interesting op-ed piece from the Gazette; basically a 'hit piece' on council candidate for District 3, Richard Skorman who is being challenged by Chuck Fowler. The comments following the op-ed 'hit piece' have been running heavily critical of the article and seemingly very supportive of Mr. Skorman.

Mr. Chuck Fowler is the candidate heavily funded by the development community and by Colorado Springs Forward.

Coincidences happen.

Re: “UPDATE: Is Richard Skorman really in bed with 'Big Marijuana?'

Thank you Matt. There is another one not quite up to 'politically correct' standards - with $266,000.00 being thrown at this city council race - and $175,000 of that coming from the developer community - hopefully people are asking why are the developers working so hard and spending so much to control council?…

Re: “Follow the money in the Springs' city election

This election is big for Colorado Springs! A lot of seats up for election this year. Obviously one group is trying to buy this election! Don't be a sheep and just vote for (R) or (D) know who you are voting for and why. Do you want a council that is in the back pocket of big money, to do as they like to this city? I'm 100% sure some of this $$ is to insure that the Utilitie boad can be hand picked. Why? To make sure Anschutz get his land. strawberry fields, emeral valley, and soon to come Rosemont reservoir.

Re: “UPDATE: Is Richard Skorman really in bed with 'Big Marijuana?'

Mr. Stein and Ms. Zubeck have done an excellent job in tracking the money in the city council election - When one 'blows away the smoke' the amount of dollars who is getting from whom makes an interesting visual. Check it out.…

Re: “UPDATE: Is Richard Skorman really in bed with 'Big Marijuana?'

This is a spot on analysis. Richard gets my vote. I used to write for a newspaper called The Bottom of the Bird Cage. As owned by Anschutz, the Gazette has become my chief contender for that location.

Re: “Resident suggests plot be labeled 'Suthers Park'

I am calling on John Suthers to admit publicly that he was mistaken when he repeatedly claimed that the land swap was good for the community. Why has the Mayor refused to respond to yet another email that I sent to his office just this week? The City cannot accept the appraisal that the Broadmoor submitted for that deal. You can see my most recent email that the Mayor has ignored at the Facebook page I manage COS Land Swap. The questions and facts in that email are legal questions and cannot be ignored by the City.

Re: “Resident suggests plot be labeled 'Suthers Park'

Wonderful- Suthers Park!! He worked hard for it so he should have the credit. Let's start a petition to name it that. I will gladly donate the ribbon and scissors for the opening ceremony, as well as a plaque for his name. I will also provide a photographer to memorialize the momentous occasion. I assume the parks department has plans to update the abandoned structure (Suthers Hall ) on the property where we can hold his reception.
Great idea!

Long may Suthers Park be free and open to the public! This is a brilliant piece of work.

Thank you for printing this! Satire is one of the truest art forms, and this letter is brilliant. Suthers Park has such a nice ring to it, and will preserve his legacy in perpetuity!

Re: “Emma Oosterhous webcomic tells stories of LGBTQ youth

Want to read an erotica/ fiction ebook by a local lesbian author set in Colorado Springs? Check out "Adventures of a GWF REBORN" on amazon. I really think our local LGBT would enjoy it highly to read about being gay in the 90's in CS back in the day!

Re: “The Gazette lifted our jail food story

Way to call it! Thank you Pam and the Independent for another example of fine investigative journalism. It's sad that you have to waste time investigating the path of other journalists (Cora request tracking) who copy your work without giving credit where it was due.)

Re: “CSPD's academy flunks eight due to failing the driving test

I'm curious as to how much drive training they get prior to the test? It didn't specify, just that it was inaccurate. The whole trainer flying the drone thing should raise some eyebrows within the police hierarchy.

Re: “Prepping your first-time camper

Summer Camp is so important, it gets kids outside and away from their screens. Yet, as parents, we all want to be sure our kids are safe. Any camp you select especially Overnight Camps should be accredited by the ACA, they check over 300 camp items. I know I own Swift Nature Camp

Re: “UPDATE: Colorado Springs Council race draws mystery poll

CSF hired homophobe Amy Lathen as their voice. All their candidates are spouting the same crap. I smell 1992...No companies moving here because of their backward thinking. Fowler screwed his neighbors after the Waldo fire, through the HOA board. Crow is government welfare queen, drug tests government employees. Never gonna have legal pot with her around.

Re: “UPDATE: Colorado Springs Council race draws mystery poll

The GOP uses Springs Forward and pays other 'activists' to work their agenda locally. The local developers and Oil companies want their hands on decisions about our utility company. There are development opportunities for In fill and revitalization and these folks want to give themselves subsidizes to do it.

I think Jill and Richard will help this town.
