LMAO- Milo Yiannopoulos Disinvited From Conservative Confab, Loses Book Deal
Gay alt-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos has been disinvited from the Conservative Political Action Conference after videos surfaced of him defending sex between men and boys and making light of the sexual assault of women.
The videos have also cost him a book contract with Simon & Schuster and are threatening his position with conservative website Breitbart. KARMA IS A BITCH!!!
Just the best place in town for Carne asada tacos in the morning. A great place with friendly service. Giive this place a try and and you will become a regular.
It was my understanding that the plan was to shutter the farming operation out of abundance of caution until a determination could be made on the contamination effects on the produce from the contaminated well water that was used to irrigate the fields. If the contamination could be passed into the crops and cause health issues with the public... the liability of knowingly and willingly selling the product would put the future of the facility at financial risk. It was a smart if not the smart thing to do for future of the facility.
She is dismissive, Does not keep her word and should not represent the people of this city.
Fort Carson and the Catholic Diocese needs to step up and help out. I met the Venetucci's years ago. When I was in elementary I went there for the pumpkins too.. My son for a couple years went to the farm as well. I am sad to read about what is going on there. I have since moved away from CO after 32 years. I moved away last year and am saddened and shocked as to what is happening. I think both Carson and the Church should help out. My father served at that post and I was a member of the Church. Anybody and everybody should help out.
And the GOP is doing such a great job that it took that Libtard paper to figure out they dont even know how to file there own reports Or maybe its like that Sheriff that had a woman strapped around his waste while covering up a felony. Hot damn them some good ol boys they dont mean no harm. Whats the harm in wasting that tax payer money everybody does it.
The GOP baby! Libtards are not welcome in Colorado Springs. Move to Boulder if you want governed by Snowflakes!
When will Lamborn hold a townhall meeting in Colorado Springs...The last one was years ago/ by invitation only and in a tiny venue. Time to bombard his office with requests for an open townhall..the man never faces ALL his constituents...only the very right wing.
TruB - that is interesting - if I read the charts correctly and did the math right the five candidates supported by CSF are averaging 83.85% of their funds received being from members of the development groups.
Obviously, everybody is free to support candidates with as much as they feel they need to but it does seem to point to the need for the public to ask very hard and penetrating questions during whatever candidate forums are scheduled!
The next four years may see the need to resolve the details on the Banning-Lewis Ranch, which may come up as soon as the election votes are counted - what form will be used to tax us to pay for the $460M the mayor has committed to stormwater.
Does 85% of campaign funds to your account buy good judgement or just put you in line to follow orders? Maybe keeping the current council in place will eliminate the question?
Iverson is in the developers pockets!
Nothing will happen just like when blood samples and evidence where not handled properly. No one will be held accountable. No accountability when the DA's are found to be out drinking and driving county vehicles.
Don't tell the dude calling people libtards who is charge of this town.
So proud of you Catherine!!! I knew you could do it!!!
Thank you Patience for turning the dialogue on Black History Month inward and showing how we can build on history's accomplishments! Pastor Lee and others have built beautiful foundations in the Hillside neighborhood, look forward to seeing how the neighborhood continues to grow under such strong leadership.
Has anyone else noticed that the ones that have screamed the loudest about the rights of the people and institutions in this country for the last eight years. Are now the ones trying there hardest to shut everyone up but themselves.
The Venetucci Farm has great historical value to the Colorado Springs area. Perhaps best known for their pumpkins and produce, the Venitucci farm contributed far more then vegetables to the community.
On July 13, 1942 the US government initiated a condemnation action to acquire 815 acres of land from the Venetuccis as part of a military camp that eventually became Fort Carson,for $10 per acre. The original acreage of the farm was 1020 acres. Following the sale of the 815 acres to the army (El Paso County assessors office. 1942) the farm was left with only 205 acres. The willingness of the family to support the building of camp Carson allowed the city to bring a military facility to the area bolstering the economy.
The Venitucci Family also owned very valuable water rights that supplemented their agricultural income. In November 1941, they drilled their first water wells: No. 1, No. 2, and No.3. The first filings of these wells were made with the state water engineer on May 1, 1945 (El Paso County assessors office 1930 6B reception number 206157933, book number 287, page 673 Warranty deed 915). Additional wells were drilled after that time. Other farmers in the area, seeing their success, began to also drill wells.
During the early 1950s, a serious drought situation developed along the Front Range. It became particularly serious in the pikes Pikes Peak Region during 1954. The Venetuccis entered a 10 year contract with the city of Colorado Springs, beginning August 2, 1954 to have water from their wells pumped to the city. Before the pipeline was completed the drought had become so bad that that Broadmoor's putting greens were drying up and the Broadmoor was on the verge of closing their doors. An agreement was made between the Venetuccis and the Broadmoor and in June 1954 and trucks hauled water from the farm to the Broadmoor until August 2 of 1954, keeping the Broadmoor open.
In addition, the Family donated a portion of their land to the Diocese of Colorado Springs for the construction of a Catholic Church. The farm was also dedicated by Colorado open lands as a conservation reserve for migratory birds and animals that have been pushed to the farm from surrounding areas due to encroaching development.
In 2003, Bambi and Dominic Venetucci decided that they wanted to keep the farm just the same as it was despite urban encroachment in the Security- Widefield area, and quietly contacted the local philanthropic organization in Colorado Springs known as the Pike's Peak community foundation to make an arrangement with them to take control of the farm. It was a lease arrangement which was to be in place for 99 years. Eventually the farm will be placed in a conservation easement, ensuring that the farm will be protected and remain a farm forever.
" The Venetucci Farm, preserved in perpetuity through the efforts of the Pikes Peak
Community Foundation, shall remain as a living legacy to the spirit and generosity of its
founders Nick and Bambi Venetucci. Established in the 1930s, the farm gained recognition for
giving away literally millions of homegrown pumpkins to school age children throughout
Colorado Springs. The pikes peak community foundation aspires to uphold this tradition, as
well as to offer educational experiences and agriculture and to create a rural setting for
(Pikes Peak Community Foundation. 2007. The Mission of the Venetucci Farm).
I had the honor of researching the Venetucci farm for my graduate thesis at UCCS, Geography and Environmental Studies in 2007.

The above information is just a small portion of the contributions the Venetucci have provided to the Colorado Springs Area.
The letter writer is partly correct, as it is noticeable to long time readers that the Indy has recently become just another liberal crying towel instead of maintaining its longstanding position as the true representative of the fourth estate for this area. Perhaps it is time to consider changing the name of this publication, as "Independent" is now a misnomer.
Maybe someday this city will make police and fire the priority. The city is growing beyond the means of either Department. You get what you pay for! Don't complain when mistakes are made and crimes increase!
You can't even spell "Makita"! :) You do realize that CSINDY is a Liberal publication written by Snowflakes/Libtards right??
"Low Mentality People" sounds like the name of a nihilistic, teenage rock band.
I often find those who complain about the poor intelligence of those with whom they disagree, are projecting.
As Henry David Thoreau once wrote, people who get labeled as half-wits often have half again as much wit as their fellows, but the average person can only perceive one-third of it.
A make-believe "participation trophy" is certainly more than anyone ever got from Trump University, but is it as prestigious as the "Order of Friendship" that Trump's pimp gave to our new Secretary of State for the invaluable services he rendered to the tyrannical Russian dictatorship?
