Why put a stadium in the downtown area? We do not have a way to handle the traffic problems it would create, I25 is overcrowded as it is, and the downtown streets are impossible if anything is happening right now. There has to be a better choice that this, one that would have room for parking, while avoiding traffic jams. I know boosters want to draw people to downtown, but this isn't the way.
This doesn't need a conspiracy, the lines were drawn a long time ago. Get your ballots in and make sure your voice is heard.
Mr Maketa has admitted that "mistakes were made" during his time in office. He has appologized to the people who worked under him, without specifying what those mistakes were, and he is under investigation by the FBI. Now he wonders why the commisioners are taking the OEM out of his hands. I would guess they think he has enough on his plate getting ready to defend himself against all the potential legal battles he is facing.
Perhaps Mr Lamborn could show them how it is done and publicly resign. That would be leadership in action.
I've read his column for along time, sometimes laughing, sometimes shaking my head and wondering if he is making some of it up. His eulogy to his dad was hard to read, my eyes were swimming in tears. A man who can do all that with ink and paper is not going to stay quiet long, at least I hope not.
The Gazette seems to feel that anyone who questions Mayor Bach's ideas for downtown Colorado Springs is either a fool living in the past or doesn't care about the future of our city. At least that is the way they and the Mayor try to reframe any arguments about his plans.
His job is sheriff. I thought that meant he is supposed to concern himself with enforcing the laws of the land. I realise that he has a right to his opinion but he cannot allow his opinion to color how he does his job.
