Re: “Pikes Peak Summit House on right path

The existing summit house is a real structural mess. With new building materials and better methods the new building should be a landmark. The newly renovated Garden of the Gods Visitor Center is an example of a local landmark.

Re: “Sexing up our local democracy

The Cursor Cowboy aka David Hughes has been advocating making voting easier and accessible for the mobile generation. Why would the GOP want to give up their hold on power in El Paso County to the mobile generation? Keep calm and pass the Geritol.

Re: “Seceding from the Springs

Maybe the new blood on the Council will be able to get a couple of initiatives passed before the Old Guard shuts them down. There is a short honeymoon period when new ideas are welcomed even encouraged. The last time last honeymoon produced the Community Solar Garden Tariff that started SunShare into business in the Springs.

Unfortunately, SunShare moved to Denver when the present council reduced the renewable energy budget for CSG from $10M to $2M.

Re: “Climate change: Deal with it

I've attended countless Utility Board meetings and listened ad nauseam to the Climate Change deniers delight in burning more coal. They foolishly believe that they are helping rate payers with cheap rates burning expensive coal because of the EPA is coming down hard on polluters.

Re: “Clearing the air

CSU and Pico can believe what they want but the free market speaks the truth. No company or country has stepped forward to embrace the Neumann technology. Ratepayers are stuck with a Rube Goldberg of epic proportions.
