Re: “ATTN: Cyclists. Tell the city you want these bike lanes.

Where is the money coming for all these bike lane improvements? I wish they would fix the roads so they were in a decent and safe condition to begin with before they start adding perks for bicycles. There is just too much traffic and too many unmaintained roadways to expect there to be warm and fuzzy feelings for drivers towards cyclists. It is difficult enough navigating the roadways without having to watch for people weaving around on bikes on major roads.

Re: “ATTN: Cyclists. Tell the city you want these bike lanes.

Terrible idea and here is why traffic will get heavier, more accidents not to mention we are a state with season, when it rains or snows I dont see bikes. Also there is a side walk on both sides of the street for walkers and bikers alike. Sorry but there are more vehicles being driven at one time then bikes.

Re: “ATTN: Cyclists. Tell the city you want these bike lanes.

I'm excited to see these buffered lanes go in - anything that makes the north end of our city a little less hostile to people (like me) who don't drive is appreciated.

Re: “Greenway Flats homeless enclave announced

I sure hope this is a program that will focus on people trying to help themselves and not just another handout. For a free place to stay there must be no drugs or alcohol on premises, no smoking indoors, and no pets- none of that should be expenses made by people who can't afford a home and are utilizing this kind of service. No co-inhabitants that aren't listed and co-inhaitants must follow all of the rules. Tenants should have to sign a waiver to unquestionably cooperate with random health and welfare inspections as well as random drug screens. Any violations of the basic rules would include a strictly followed, progressive series of actions that ultimately lead to eviction as well as involvement of child protective services for children involved. This would ensure that the housing is being utilized by people who have truly hit hard times and simply need a boost to get themselves back on track while keeping out drug dealers and people who are not ready to appreciate the effort this project represents.

Re: “Opinion: Manitou Springs' war on hikers

War on Hikers? They built a huge lot on the E. end of town with a free shuttle right to the trailhead! How is that a war on hikers? They're just trying to protect the Ruxton residents' quality of life.

Re: “Opinion: Manitou Springs' war on hikers

I no longer park on Ruxton. Too expensive and more importantly out of respect for the residents who have to put up with Cog railway traffic anyway. I park down near Memorial Park and jog the mile and quarter up Ruxton. I have found that the jog warms up the legs and gets the blood aerated for the ascent up the Incline. Do your body (and wallet) a favor by not rolling out of the car seat and going straight up the incline.

Re: “Bible removed from desk at Peterson AFB

And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

Re: “Opinion: Manitou Springs' war on hikers

A lot of these hikers are slobs who leave their trash along the incline & other trails. They are rude & don't pick up their dogs poop. Among other things. Perhaps Manitou can figure out how much of a load the area can actually handle? And come up w/a better plan than the one proposed.

Re: “Opinion: Manitou Springs' war on hikers

Hikers? Are you kidding me? I hiked the local stairs once a year ago and was I totally blown away by the huge percentage of pure rudeness and cologne drenched narcissistic posers that this "city" trail seems to attract. I can honestly say, as a born local guy, that I have no desire to go near the incline ever again. Once was enough for that circus. And as I see it, Manitou can charge the people who want to park close and use this close to city trail, anything they want. Pay for convenience. It's the way it works. There are hundreds of miles of other trail systems that I would much rather explore in my home state.

I think we should organize a world wide boycott on Manitou for the next year.

Well when half of the Indy pages are pot ads, you can't be shocked when the Indy attacks Suthers, or anyone threatening their advertising revenue.

From my understanding, Suzanne, you have a right to live in peace in your own home. On the other hand, the grower has rights, also. Find some common ground.

Re: “Suthers preaches against MJ legalization in Arizona

I'm curious as to what response you get. I have sent them a request as well. Would like to compare responses. So far the first reply was vague and they offered no documentation. I've responded accordingly and asked for some actual proof as to what entity paid for his Arizona trip.

Perhaps if the Mayor wasn't squandering all of the citys resources for his personal agenda against weed? Just a thought...

Glad to see the stormwater BMP's in place and the Clean Water Act-related permit through city engineering in place. It is a good day when a pile of dirt is a big enough story to make the news.
