Re: “Drawing new lines for City Council

Thus begins the process where gerrymandering can wreck voters' best intentions.

Re: “USAFA's 'Tebow' prayer stirs controversy

Using Tim Tebow is a poor role model. He famously knelt and prayed after successful plays yet never prayed for guidance when he threw a coconut.

Re: “The Top 10 reasons our community should pursue a clean energy future

What's trivial about long-term saved money and escaping a commodity that is tied to external economic pressure for continual rate increases?
What's trivial about choosing the fruits of technology advancement. American society gave up the buggy whip to invest in the Model T long ago and hasn't looked back for the old technology.

Re: “Power struggle

I'm struck by the similarity of this project with the proposed Keystone XL.

Re: “Fodder for next election?

In 2012 the mayor diverted $5 million from the city's federal Surface Transportation Program 2013 allotment to support CDOT's expansion of I-25 to Monument. Apparently he was tired of congestion when driving to his home in Pine Creek? This is one reason some potholes are neglected.

Finally the city is listing transit routes to the mayor's town hall meetings. Progress!

Re: “Cassiani chosen to lead "turn around" of Springs

"... organizers say only 7,000 jobs have been created here in the last 15 years while the population has grown by 20 percent, whereas 26,000 jobs have been created in Fort Collins, which has half the population of Colorado Springs" -- are these figures meaningful? What are the comparative net employment figures?

Re: “Some are more equal than others

I find my new home city, Seattle, very prosperous and the citizens work for common welfare, not to separate themselves to flaunt their freedom.
