Re: “Fewer Colorado Springs cops work the streets as crime rises

"Suthers says he plans to use money now spent on overtime to hire more full-time officers"

Shouldn't this be Carey's responsibility?

Re: “Two women Dems looking to break political curse in county commissioner races

Electra Johnson has my vote! Her professional background, expertise, and passion for real people with real problems will help District 3 residents plan and implement reasonable growth in north western El Paso County. I especially look forward to her leadership with County Wildfire Code adoption, AND enforcement in our Wildland Urban Interface with Pike National Forest. We need new guidance in reducing the risk of wildfire, the resulting erosion, the flooding, and the destruction of infrastructure. She knows that what happens up here to Palmer Lake's reservoir, to the forested headwaters of nearby Upper Monument Creek, will affect everybody's water downstream--all the way to the Arkansas River! Republican commissioners have had their chance--for 46 years! On their watch, El Paso County endured Waldo Canyon and Black Forest Wildfires. Considering the risk of "business as usual," I will vote for constructive change: Electra Johnson.

Libertyfor you new to try Somalia for a while. I hear they don't have much government there, and everyone carries a gun...of course though, most of them are Somalis. Send me a post card and tell me how you like a life without law.

Re: “Fewer Colorado Springs cops work the streets as crime rises

Seriously, man? Figures don't lie...but liars figure? Is that what you're trying to say? OK - I get it already - you want to live in a "free society" where everyone fixes the streets in front of their house, puts out their own fires (including ones like Waldo Canyon), makes their own electricity, takes care of their own garbage and sewage...etc, etc. Face it - without the taxes we all pay we wouldn't have any of this and you would be in a world of hurt because you aren't smart enough to handle all of that responsibility. The streets of CSpgs are a mess because of the "I'm taxed too much crowd" and their jailbird hero Douglas Bruce. Give me a break!

Re: “Fewer Colorado Springs cops work the streets as crime rises

"freaking teabagger mentality is killing this town"

Actually, we're one of the most desirable cities in America, make "Best of..." lists on a regular basis and people reloctae here in droves because of the climate, cost-of-living, crime rates, recreational opportunities, etc.

The only deficient "mentality" is from self-absorbed, mypopic regressives that need Big Gov to provide their thoughts, words, deeds and cash, so they can remain happily detatched from any "heavy mental" lifting; thanks for demonstrating this yet again.

Re: “New operator of local for-profit college tries — and fails — to rebrand

I went to the fully-accredited for-profit University of Phoenix and I can honestly say I received an exemplary education and it was much better than any education at any not-for-profit state public universities I have attended. I learned amazing skills and consider myself a scholar who is published and notable in his field. The University of Phoenix curriculum was rigorous, meaningful, relevant, and applicable. Not all for-profit schools are "bad" and many schools are changing and adapting to the new rules, for the better! Oh, and let us not start a new form of discrimination where we discriminate against for-profit graduates. These are some of the hardest working Americans I know! And those who complain about not finishing UoPx… they could not handle the rigor. Do not ever undermine anyone’s education. I love the University of Phoenix, enrolling students since 1976, and so do its 1,000,000 Alumni!! Finally, DO NOT forget that the University of Phoenix educated the non-traditional students and I thank the University of Phoenix! The University filled a demand where “traditional” academia would NOT!

So at CTU, only 16% graduate and the average student sinks with $35K of debt.

Makes perfect sense. Ain't capitalism great?

Re: “CO House District 18 race is assured

So we have a useless Clintonite incumbent in Lee, a Trumpster Diver in Forth, and a Libertarian in Norman Dawson, MBA.

I'll take the MBA Libertarian.

Or, they could take a different approach and run the PD like the FD and keep them in the station until a call comes in.

Re: “Fewer Colorado Springs cops work the streets as crime rises

teabagger mentality is wait until the problem is overwhelming and will cost 10 times more to fix it... but save a few pennies today... teabagger city will never change until we elect people who will think beyond the next day, month or year. let crime get really bad... where it effects some rich old farts and then we will see some action... just like they did with the roads. freaking teabagger mentality is killing this town.

Re: “City, Broadmoor negotiating over portions of the city's water system

Berry also says no decision will happen "without a public discussion/process and vote by the Utilities Board/City Council."

Suthers concurred, saying, "If a sale is proposed, there will be plenty of opportunity for public discussion."

If the preceding words were not so sadly misused in practice .... it would almost be funny to see them in print on the heels of the Strawberry Fields' landslide of public opposition being completely and utterly dismissed.

I'll say this for you gentlemen, you have no shortage of empty words.
