Re: “Spring Break with the Burros Oro & Nugget

The 27-acre Western Museum of Mining & Industry is a hidden gem in Colorado Springs! It’s an interactive museum where you can browse or take a tour. If you miss a tour, ask the guide questions. The entire staff takes pride in the museum and wants you to have a great time.

You can pan for gold, watch huge working machines, or push a button to run a model. There are many historical photos with interesting and sometimes funny write-ups. In the library, you’ll find many books and comfortable seating.

Outside there are more huge machines, a Mine Reclamation Exhibit, and the Stamp Mill. Be sure to look for Oro and Nugget, the resident burros adopted from the Bureau Land Management’s Wild Horse and Burro Program. They may be in the red barn at the top of the hill or in the small shed nestled under large trees.

There are picnic tables to use.

We went for the first time with out of town friends. We will return with other guests!

Re: “Passing judgement on the party primaries

"Millennial firebrand Calandra Vargas wants to kick Lamborn to the curb
Miss Vargas goes to Washington?" Independent June 1, 2016 http://www.csindy.com/coloradosprings/mill…

" Vargas is a former Heritage Foundation intern, a pro-life, pro-gun, pro-Donald Trump (after she originally backed Ted Cruz) Republican. She's skeptical of transgender bathroom rights on a mass scale, and a believer in "traditional marriage" and creationism. But, she says, none of those issues are her priorities."

Lamborn is too lazy to be dangerous. My guess is Ms Vargus will throw women's and gay rights out the door to get one of her bills passed!

Re: “Personhood USA announces launch of local abortion ban initiative

In 2014 when the third Personhood amendment was defeated by the state 64% to 35%, it was only defeated in El Paso County 51% to 49%. Personhood USA headquarters are in Denver. Ultra conservative christian "pro-life" churches will be preaching Personhood from the pulpits and their sheep will conform without questioning.

It won't be an easy battle to win. It will take money, time, campaigning, and the justice system to keep legal abortion legal in our city. The recent shootings or any other violence against reproductive clinics have had no effect in the relentless pursuit of making abortion illegal by the conservative christians. In many areas the violence has escalated since the false videos came out.

I watched a video taken the day after the COS shootings in another state in front of a reproductive clinic. Eight older white men were singing Christmas carols with the words changed to verses against women and abortion. Their last song told people looking for work at clinics to go to Colorado Springs because they had openings their now.

Re: “Rally for Planned Parenthood and Roe v. Wade

Quotes from Donald Spitz who commented above: in the MSNBC article by Irin Carmon written 11/30/2015: "As for Donald Spitz’s own reaction, “I think Planned Parenthood is an evil organization, so I didn’t lose any sleep when I heard about it,” Spitz said. “They sell baby parts, and they reap what they sow, and now they’re complaining about it.”

He added, “There are no innocent people in Planned Parenthood. They’re in there for a reason.”

Spitz said he wrote to Dear on Monday to offer his support.

Re: “Military gays: now or when?

Thank you and well said! Perhaps through events like you mentioned, articles, and one day having strong government leaders on this subject, gays in the military will be a non issue.

Re: “DR. D.I.Y.

Average guy, if all parents decided to vaccinate their kids to prevent disease, we won't have to pay for the doctors, medical treatments and funerals with our taxes just in case the parents can't afford the costs. Just another way to look at vaccines.

Re: “DR. D.I.Y.

I really hope no one follows this person's advice on skin cancer. A quick search online or in a library will tell you how he is so wrong! I will continue to immediately have my skin precancerous lesions removed, wear sunscreen, and take my Vitamin D supplements! I don't want to live with open sores that continue to grow larger and deeper if they aren't removed. I'm not willing to chance having skin cancer when it is so easily cured with medicated creams and dry ice if caught early enough. I've seen skin cancer on my parents. People die from certain forms of skin cancer. My dad almost did when his cancer was removed. The cancer was one millimeter away from entering his brain.
