Re: “Lamborn: My big fat abundant life

I still have a hard time believing that this man was reelected. We had a chance to have an intelligent, good, compassionate, hardworking man (Irv Halter) and the idiots in this District chose this clown. How can so many people be so stupid?

Re: “UPDATE: Bach won't run

I'm glad he's out. Now if we can just stop City 4 Chumps we'll be doing something.
Suthers is just another establishment facade, but at least he has a brain.
I wonder which candidate will get Koch funding, most likely Suthers.
Joel Miller or Mary Lou Makepeace are the better persons who're running.

Re: “Lamborn: My big fat abundant life

When Hollywood remakes "It's a Wonderful Life" they'll cast Lamborn as Mr. Potter.

Re: “Are land use and zoning contributing to crime in our cities?

Does "programming and activating" an area really prevent crime, or does it just force it into other areas?

Re: “Trinity Brewing insults Colorado Springs, social-media responds with fury

If their beer wins medals, but the people prefer other beers, maybe Trinity needs to re-think what is important.

Re: “Surviving outdoors when things go wrong

Skee rocks and with decades of experience in SAR, he knows his stuff. People need to listen to him.

Staying put is incredibly important and can't be emphasized enough. If you are lost, STOP. Those TV shows that show people performing self rescue are for entertainment value. Every single one of those people, from Les Stroud to Lundin to Grylls will tell you that moving is exactly the wrong thing to do, even though they all show it.

A very simple kit can go a long way. An emergency "space blanket" is small and light and while they have no real insulation value, they do reflect heat back at you and being shiny they make you easier to find. A whistle is incredibly effective at getting attention, far better than yelling and doesn't make you hoarse. A small LED keychain style light comes in really handy at night and can be seen at a pretty good distance. These three things alone can make a huge difference and their combined weight and size is so little that everyone should carry them in a pocket or pouch.

Re: “State of the Region addresses good, bad news

Home building is fools gold - as the short term benefits of jobs and sales taxes are ultimately overcome by the costs of maintaining roads/infrastructure and building/staffing fire stations and police substations.

Thanks Benjamin Brubaker for your Wikipedia-founded rhetoric. That was useless.

Re: “Hair ye, hair ye

You might look deeper into David Felices employment with Colorado Springs P.D., many of Felices actions are outlined in a letter, written by cd employees the city government regarding numerous, unethical actions taken by Felice. It's my understanding this letter was read into record at a city council meeting. I found a copy of the many year, but when I tried to find the letter at a later date, it had been removed. Felice was largely responsible for a lawsuit that cost the city millions of dollars, somewhere in the area of twenty million. He brought this same behavior to Durango PD. Maybe there are unethical reasons for his departure, maybe there's a reason another employee left the Dept. Within 2 weeks of Felices departure.

Re: “Trinity Brewing insults Colorado Springs, social-media responds with fury

"While researchers have found that moderate alcohol consumption in older adults is associated with better cognition and well-being than abstinence,[1] excessive alcohol consumption is associated with widespread and significant brain lesions. The effects can manifest much later—mid-life Alcohol Use Disorder has been found to correlate with increased risk of severe cognitive and memory deficits in later life.[2][3] Alcohol related brain damage is not only due to the direct toxic effects of alcohol; alcohol withdrawal, nutritional deficiency, electrolyte disturbances, and liver damage are also believed to contribute to alcohol-related brain damage.[4] The long-term effects of excessive alcohol consumption on brain chemistry is an important cause of chronic fatigue."

"Long term exposure to cannabis poses a risk of irreversible cognitive impairment in children and pre-pubescent adolescents; other than for the very highest of doses, no similar risk has been established for adults.[2] Negative changes in attention, psychomotor task ability, and short-term memory are associated with very recent (12 to 24 hours) marijuana use. Any long-term central nervous system effects of the residual drug are indistinguishable from variations in the user's susceptibility, or any pre-existing psychiatric disorder."

If this guy can't stand the heat in Colorado Springs, he's going to be eaten alive in Denver.

I'd like to see someone young on the council. Someone with new ideas and the willingness to challenge the status quo.

Re: “Maggie's Farm does $2 million in marijuana sales in Manitou Springs

I can completely agree that the novelty of legalization is just for those who have been scared to use it before, but had a desire. In such case those people will continue to come to this shop if they like the result of usage. However I think that the level of taxes will get lower, because today people can really see this like a game. I think it was a wise decision of the government, because in such manner they want to fill in the budget and they succeed for a while. For the time being people can use to get extra money and try this new recreation, but I do not think that it will become a habit for them.

Re: “City attorney: On the run and winning awards

This is no surprise - Wynetta is a true professional who knows and understands municipal law, land use issues, and home rule authority more than anyone.

I personally valued her sage advice and counsel on numerous occasions.

Congratulations to her on this well deserved honor.

Re: “Stormwater measure draws $200K

It seems to me that it’s government who has to solve such problems. Unfortunately today people are in very difficult financial situation. The wages are very low that is why many of them take financial help. As for me I also often turn to such service. I often take loans here: . It’s very good money service which helps even people with bad credit score. You can take these loans 24/7.

Re: “10 apply for Council, another announces at-large candidacy

These people running for council seem to be double dippers, lawyers, an big business where are the common men or women? The town is already run by land & hotel barons let's not let in the military too! Then this town will really will be screwed, we need a person that is native or real close to being. This person should also have deep pride and care for the people in this community rich or poor.
