The Bus Service and PPCC need to pull their heads together and put a route in at the Rampart Campus. It makes absolutely ne sense to schedule degree required classes where there is no public transportation. The alternative is to cancel classes at Rampart, forcing more traffic on the roads to the Centennial Campus.
There are degree specific, non core, non online classes that cancel for lack of enrollment. Get it together, folks. Especially since you've got the OK to offer 4 year degrees.
John Suthers is the sitting US Attorney for the District of Colorado. He is well educated and has authored six books. We would be lucky to have him as Mayor, over the flim-flam of contestants that are nothing more than an extention of the current problem.
So this is the Big Toe behind the rampant over building in the City, and the guiding force for every Mayor/Council decision for years? (Not to mention who benefits if Mayor Bach builds the debacle downtown --- I always figured his cronies led the land titles, and were getting anxious to finally do something with all that vaccant land.)
Thanks, Indy. It's nice to know who the players are.
The Mayor has quite the revolving door downtown, doesn't he?
I told my SIL she needed to apply for a job being the Mayor's toady, hang around for 8 months, then boogie with a nice, tight severance package (just about every one who as left) and a job burried further in the Admin (Laura Neumann).
I was only half joking. Where else can you get paid like that?
Mayor Bach, you gotta go. We can't afford your style of leadership/politics.
Very simply, Colorado Springs has suffered as good paying, middle of the road education jobs have left the area. If City Council pounds the final nail into the coffin of The Drake poweplant ending reasonable energy, away go all hopes of ever regaining in this sector.
Jobs increases in food and service are great, except that they will never replace what was lost. And when no one can afford to eat out, bye-bye more jobs. It's time to get smart.
It's about time!
Now, let's suck up a little pride and take the next Grant that will lower those fares, putting them in line with Denver and Pueblo. Do that, and even more people will ride, and we'll get back all those routes and stops the turn in the economy took away.
