Re: “Stir

Cool, hip coffee shop that's a wonderful alternative to you know who.

Coffee is great. My pecan pie was right out of the oven, warm, sweet and gooey.

Order at counter, take your selection to a table. Outside seating too. Not pricey.

Yard sale coffee cups and flatware, funky old metal lawn chairs from the 1940s, in a renovated gas station ... recycling and re-purposing at its best.

Girl at the counter was friendly and a pleasure to deal with. Free Wi-Fi and parking.

In the Old North End Neighborhood (ONEN), in the BON Shopping Center, at corner of Jackson and Wahsatch, a few blocks from Penrose Hospital just off N. Nevada Ave.

Closes at 3PM most days. I'll be going back.

Re: “Protect Our Parks group seeks ballot measure

If voters get to deny discarding parklands then the ballot item should include raising the taxes needed to support keeping said parklands. Can't have it both ways under TABOR, i.e., if we place a cost burden on the city we need to pony up the funds to support said burden.

Of course the real solution is to de-TABOR but until TABOR truly hurts a majority of voters then nothing will change and the city will continue to fall apart. Swell, huh.

Re: “Update: Glenn says if you get pregnant from rape, that's "a gift from God"

"Glenn is adamantly pro-life,.." WRONG. Glenn merely SAYS he is pro-life as it's an ironclad necessity for anyone running on a GOP ticket. It's the sure-fire way to milk evangelicals for votes and donations. It's GOP SOP #1 with GOP SOP #2 being slavish obedience to the NRA and a loving embrace of the 2nd Amendment.

If he had a daughter suffer this fate there'll be a procedure done so fast it'll make your head spin. Same for Rick Santorum and all the others who espouse this execrable position.

Re: “DUI, gang and other units shift to the streets as crime rates surge, response times lag

Pitiful. The city has entered YOYO territory, i.e., You're On Your Own.
Meanwhile, the Mayor runs off to AZ, telling them not to legalize MJ.
Is there a "bathroom bill" due soon from our enlightened leadership?
Major companies are beating down the doors to move here. NOT!!

Re: “3 ways Nor'wood is locking up lower downtown

Let's assume we only have two ways to get the area re-developed:
1. A city effort of any sort that requires taxpayer approval for funding.
2. Sell it ALL to Mr. Jenkins and let him build something.

Since a majority of voters usually vote NO on any tax hike then we'll never see anything done to fix that area if the city has to pay for it.

So, give it all to Mr. Jenkins and let him invest HIS funds to build SOMETHING, else we'll never get anything done. Voting majority in COLO SPGS care only about themselves, has no civic pride, and will cut off its nose to spite its face.

Re: “The Gazette chews up two more papers

Eliminate competition, especially price competition. Intent of every billionaire is to develop monopoly power if they can get away with it. Secondarily, Anschutz wants more platforms to pump out Wayne's insipid editorials and if the Gazette is the only paper in town then they've a captive audience for their extremism.
