Re: “Discussion-inducing turbine project OKd by county

Why does the power go to Xcel? Where is OUR county power coming from? Why can't this kickstart El Paso and Colorado Springs into getting wind power to our own Utilities? We need more solar incentives, as well! Tiny first step, so kudos....but we need to be running full tilt here.

Re: “Poll: Flood control, cooperation important to Pikes Peak region

Water respects no boundaries. It will just flow along the path of least resistance. Mayor Bach, have you ever seen a mass wasting incident? Do you know the destructive force that is coming for the next 10 years due to fire loss? Even small thunderstorms are magnified to devastating effect. Our county needs a comprehensive approach with low impact development in the riparian habitat. Listen to your water engineers, and plan for the long haul.

Re: “City sustainability team’s solutions recycle, reuse and renew

Superbrightled.com, leds should break even after three years, no more. With a little research, you will find much better and cheaper led elements.

Re: “Colorado Springs bans recreational-marijuana stores

Look, the growing of hemp and the manufacture of fiber, oil and food is being glossed over and ignored, when the jobs and manufacturing infrastructure would be first in the nation to compete with Canada and China's importation of hemp. Would Federal police actions continue on hemp as opposed to recreational? I would love to grow for hemp seed, as a recipe for Bilbo's seed cake incorporates hemp!

Re: “Bach, King put Utilities on the defensive with dubious letter to Pueblo

I would be willing to draw a plan, based on topography and sewer runoff, to show where wetlands would be most effective in containing and purifying sewage storm overflow, contain flash flooding and increasing habitat for native birds, fish and amphibians.

Re: “County, city still out of step

What stormwaters require is space...to spread out, and lessen the impact of flash flooding. What developers don't wish to give up, is land in low lying, flood prone areas. When wetlands are allowed to flourish, stormwater and rain draining from business and industrial areas become clean. Low impact development in areas surrounding them become more profitable. Bring the beavers back! That is one low cost way to solve a great deal of problems. Just need to deal with the dams they build, protect the trees you wish to keep and keep our marshes alive. Think about it.
