Re: “Muddy waters?

If the city wants to conserve water, follow Las Vegas and pay homeowners to remove sod.

They pay homeowners $2 per square foot to remove sod and replace it with desert landscaping. Bluegrass is fine for Kentucky, here, not so much.

Re: “Lamborn won't debate, sheriff term limits go to ballot, UCCS keeps expanding, and more

News opportunity for the Independent:

So the local rag, "Gazette" has now gotten greedy. If you don't pay them you cannot read more than just a few articles per month.

The Independent ought to step up its coverage of just local news.

Religion: The ultimate refuge of the powerless. If you cannot change your own life, it must be that some greater force controls the world.

Re: “Gazette lays off at least five

Perhaps this helps to explain why the Gazette recently has become such a hollow shell. Lately, it has been simply publishing many stories copied from the previous days Denver Post.

I have decided to let my Gazette subscription expire.

Re: “Focus on exclusion of gays

Focus on the wallet paints Colorado Springs as a backward, gay bashing, bigoted community. That's poison for economic development.

Focus, please leave. And don't let the door hit your bigoted ass on the way out.
