Re: “Firefighters won't take stand on C4C

Kind of smart of them. They more then likely hate the idea but are afraid to say so for fear of budget cuts. This way they dont have to lie to keep there money.

Re: “C4C: Extreme measures

Well lets see the USOC is building the museum with private money the Mayor and the so called power players are wanting a "Hall of Fame". UCCS is building a nursing school with private money they want a sports hospital. AFA has a visitor center they pay for on the land people go to to see the school they want one in the city. We want jobs they want to sell land that they bought after they ran off companies that provided jobs. We want our Utility to provide they want to tear it down and throw away an investment that has not even got going yet so they can unload it to a private utility company so you cant see it from "Bach Central" That used to be industrial. The 120 mil. is tax money generated by these venues so its not really money that is already in a bank somewhere but PROJECTED money. Wonder why we wont vote for it? Wonder why we back those that are elected to look after us? Recall of King may be paid for but watch out it still takes votes and it looks like voters dont want this project.

Re: “C4C, PERA, Utilities, going green, and more

Something I found out today that seemed strange but yet played right into my thoughts on C4C. They named a young lady as the head person in charge of the USOC museum or Hall of Fame. When the question came up as to what museum it has not been built yet or funded yet. We were told they the USOC is going to build it one way or another and that private funding is allowing it to go forward. Now USOC is moving forward UCCS has said it is moving forward with the sports med. center all with private funds. What is it the taxpayers are funding? Now we all know funding does not happen over night. So these two things have been planned a while now. So I think the our Mayor jumped the bandwagon used these two items to push his agenda to sell the property downtown by adding these two private funded attractions to his C4C project. The property downtown is owned by a group of people that gave a bunch of money to him at election time. A couple projects aimed at tourist's come across the desk then all of a sudden hes headed to Denver to get a tax rebate so he can pat himself in front of the press and could push forward to sell that property to the taxpayers. I could be wrong and all this could be a coincidence but sure seems strange the way it all plays out. We dont need or have a use for a Stadium yet I think were going to end up with one.

Re: “Some in Manitou Springs want a marijuana do-over

Thank you Sarge. If they dont live there they have no dog in the fight.

Re: “Manitou Springs pushes back against recreational marijuana

Tricia yes I agree there is a benefit for many I have seen it first hand but this topic is about rec. pot not medical. This is about the people that use it just to relax and enjoy. Personally I dont see a problem with that as long as there not causing problems with the public.

Re: “A tad more on Culpepper

From what I understood Culpepper was hired because of the fiasco created by Bach over the city attorney. He was hired to gather information for City Council. Now I dont know what branch of or what side of the CS city hall you sit in but thats whats going around and I agree sure made Bach look foolish no matter how you want to spin it.
