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.
Suthers is admitting that the rights of the voters are being taken away at the local legislative level not for health or safety but because they don't like it.
Living next to a LARGE residential grow. NIGHTMARE. There is no consequences or compliance by these growers.
Liquor, though -- that's to be celebrated amirite!
Maybe the COS mayor should worry more about COS, less on controlling the bodies of people in other states.
This woman is nuts. She WANTS rolling power outages?!?!? I guess she does because that is WHAT will happen if we lose Drake before they can get replacement infrastructure in place, which will be about or around 2035.
ALL MEN & WOMEN ARE CREATED EQUAL ACCORDING TO OUR US CONSTITUTION! THIS IS WHY THE BIBLE SHOULDN'T BE THE DOCTRINE OF THE WORKPLACE.
The traditional view is that the "I suffer not a woman…" words are Paul's own words. However, some modern scholars believe on the basis of content, vocabulary, and literary style that 1 Timothy, as well as between two and five other Pauline letters (see Authorship of the Pauline epistles), were not written by Paul but are pseudepigraphical. Borg and other contend that this verse fits poorly with Paul's more positive references to Christian women and may be a later interpolation rather than part of the original text. Still others, including scholars/theologians Richard and Catherine Kroeger, believe Paul did write the epistle of 1 Timothy. They present a case for interpreting 1 Timothy 2:12 as a refutation of false teaching, rather than as a narrow restriction on women's role. Their research leads them to conclude that Paul was addressing a particular problem localized in the Church at Ephesus where Timothy was pastor of the multicultural congregation. A primary example of this paradigm permeates the book they co-authored, I Suffer Not a Woman: Rethinking 1 Timothy 2:11-15 in Light of Ancient Evidence. The book presents the Kroegers' well-documented research which sheds new perspectives to this difficult biblical text. They present considerable evidence concerning newly discovered issues and problems Paul was addressing. They argue that the verse must be interpreted in light of careful exegesis of Greek word usage, the Greco-Roman customs and laws of the day, and the outside influences on the Christian churches of the 1st Century. While holding firm to a literal approach to 1 Timothy 2:11-15, the Kroegers' research argues from the background of changes in the Greek language since the 1st century, Roman empire customs at the time the Apostle Paul wrote 1 Timothy, and the problems that the church in Ephesus was facing with pagan religions. The Kroegers' maintain that gnosticism was taking hold of the Christians at Ephesus, and the women, being given less-to-no education in those days, were more prone to be misled by gnostic beliefs. Those authors present the case that those women with gnostic influence were trying to pass on those erroneous beliefs to others in the Church at Ephesus. Hence, their conclusion is that 1 Timothy 2:12 is a time-and-place refutation of false teaching, not a universal Christian principle for all time.
Unclear meaning of the key word
1 Timothy 2:12 contains a rare Greek verb, found only here in the entire Bible. It is the word authentein which is ordinarily translated "to usurp authority." Therefore, since there is no “control text” to determine its meaning, no one knows for sure what the word means and exactly what Paul is forbidding. Yet despite that uncertainty, most of the more conservative denominations apply the "usurp authority" translation to their restrictions of women's roles in their churches.
Were Major Lewis to leave the Good Book open to 1 Tim 2:12 for the enjoyment of any female C.O.s he might have, this problem might solve itself...
"...Command decided that Major Steve Lewis could rightfully display his Bible for other service members to see in the work place." Hmmm. The major has that right, I guess, but what does he intend by displaying his open Bible with highlighted passages? Is he not making some point, attempting to advance some non-secular agenda with that display? Sure seems like a distraction to good order and discipline. His field grade influence and this other agenda, and a religious one to boot on his government work desk? I'd say he can believe and express anything PRIVATELY, but not his religion at his US Gov't duty desk.
That is not an old saying, it is Newton's Third Law of Motion.
I'm glad to hear that Maj. Lewis is continuing to do the right thing by not displaying the bible.
teabaggerville hits a new low... next will be do-it-yourself road repair... do-it-yourself fire fighting... do-it-yourself water treatment (we don't need no stinking EPA anyway)...
but at least our taxes are still low.
Hit the nail on the head RT. Lets compare the City of Denver with Colorado Springs.
Denver -- Area 155 square miles : 600k population : 1460 Officers.
Springs -- Area 186 square miles : 450k population : 687 Officers.
So, CSPD has more area to cover, a similar population and less than half of the officers. Plus, if you add that Denver County also has the Sheriffs office patrolling the exact same area and our Sheriff has the whole of El Paso County, you can increase the discrepancy.
This city's refusal to institute a workable property tax is the reason for this issue, among many other issues, including our terrible infrastructure and public transportation. Doing things on the cheap means that you get less services. You can't have everything you want without paying for it.

If Arizona and some of the other states (especially warmer states) with marijuana legalization on their respective ballots pass those laws, wouldn't that attract some of the homeless there and take some of the pressure off Colorado? Or is he just trying to sabotage the competition?
very interesting to read,thanks for sharing that wonderful useful information,given programming coding was very excellent and easily observe all provided information.
He never worked with me, one of his constituents when he was my city councilman. Never anwered an email. So why would he work "across the ailse".
Maybe because "preaching" is self righteously telling others how to live? Dictating how others live their lives is creepy. Going against the will of the voters who voted for legalizing marijuana is counter to democracy and creepy in a totalitarian, dictatorial kind of way. Calling people twits is just childish and lacks originality.
So why do the creepy pot smoking twits at the Indy feel the need to use the word "preaches?"
he should NOT receive a pension, gun or badge and should be locked up
