Re: “Aspen Auto Clinic - Tutt Blvd.

They seem to know what they are doing - but it is a very expensive place.

Re: “Colorado Springs City Council urged to ban puppy-mill dogs from stores

I have no sympathy for either side. Adopting the "trailer trash" found at the humane society isn't an answer to inhumane breeding practices. It is simply exacerbating another form of it.

Re: “El Paso County inmates say new jail contractor serves inadequate food

Sorry, but this story reads as sour grapes from Aramark over losing their long-term deal. It would be wise to keep the prison population well-fed in order to reduce their overall angst, but you shouldn't lose sight of the fact that this is a jail and not a resort.

Re: “Local developers make two picks for Colorado Springs City Council

Too bad the readers and the editors of the Independent are so weak and ineffectual. A paper with any influence would not only identify the best competitors, but would begin supporting them with both articles and solicitations for public events, social gatherings, and donations.

Squeaky wheels get the grease - the rest of you be damned.

Re: “Springs Forward spent more in 2015 than it raised

They are just marking time until it is time for them to select the six district-specific City Council members (April 4, 2017). You'd be wise to vote against the candidates they endorse, although resistance is generally futile when it comes to council races.

Re: “City: Rolling in dough

Don't be misled. The massive hail storms that battered large swaths of the city is the cause of this spike in sales tax revenues - as residents were busy spending insurance claim money on car/home repairs and replacements. Next year their insurance bills will skyrocket and spending will likely tank.

Re: “District looking for answers after failure of bond, MLO

The district might not think that an extra $100-$200 a year in property taxes is a big deal, but to many people it is, especially considering that insurance, utility bills, phone bills, cable rates, etc., are also on the rise. It was also a bad idea to think that people would swallow the whole $235 million pill all at once, especially since it was possible to look at the districts spending plan for it and see items that simply didn't seem that critical. A separate school maintenance bond would likely have passed since people can clearly see how the district has let the schools crumble in order to move money to other areas.
