Re: “City on losing end of rulings in PERA case

Complete idiots. The Springs is going to blow the foundation's entire endowment.

Re: “Wind farm could finally get off the ground after two companies bow out

What a missed opportunity for CSU and Colorado Springs. All that El Paso County land will go for energy production for Denver Metro when CSU could have put Colorado Springs on the map as one of the nation's greenest energy cities (and actually retired Drake).

Re: “Six locals who don't get the problem with the racist Donald Sterling

Campbell's right. This has nothing to do with the first amendment. The NBA is a private organization. Try walking into your employer's conference room during a meeting and yelling "f**k off" and see how far your first amendment gets you. It is true that how Sterling was taped would be inadmissible in a California court. But again the NBA is not the judicial system, and I don't think really cares how it was obtained. I'm sure there will be plenty of lawsuits yet to come, but in the end Sterling is bound by contractural agreement.

Re: “New format earns an 'F'

Interesting comment, Mr. K. I've long considered the powers that be in the Springs to be self-serving opportunists in conservative clothing. Consider, for example, the good "limited government" game they talk, while presiding over the most federally dependent city in the nation. They'll gladly cut everybody else's programs ... Just don't touch theirs. This egotism presents a major impediment to good governance because in reality, far too many of the participants are not in it to serve the greater good, but to build their reputations. True collaboration requires a true willingness to press the pause button on our own self-interests long enough to fully and openly listen to, and consider another's views. Is that ever in play in the Springs?

Re: “After claiming it spent $200,000 on open-records requests in 2012, the city's numbers are tiny for 2013

TT water rates double after you've used 15,000 gallons in a month. That's a HUGE amount of water. If you're using more than 15,0000 gallons a month you've got a big wasteful problem, pal. I average 3,000 gallons a month. Seriously is there anything you don't find fault with? Get a hobby dude.
