Re: “After teen suicides, local school uses art to heal

Thank you Indy and Griffin for this well written and relevant article. Discovery Canyon Campus Community of students ,teachers,staff and parents make up a unique school. Like so many other schools, people come and go without interacting very much each day due to the many activities, academic demands, and personal focus. The continual stream of fish swimming together is a wonderfullly quiet, non-demanding reminder that we are truly not alone, even if we look different, see life or politics differently. I saw one of the fish on the floor the other day. It had fallen of the current and as I put "him" back up into the current I thought to myself that not one should be "lost" . Simple and very Real

Re: “Falling Starrs

There is so much that is heart breaking about this saga. Starr Kempf was so gifted and making routine pilgrimages to his sculptures is one of the highlights of my life (and pretty much what kept me going the few years I was stranded in that town). I have never seen anything like his work. His vision was unique, oddly functional, and just incredible to see in person. I sadly read years later that he had killed himself, which was a tragedy for the area, his fans, and of course his poor family. But the deterioration of his daughter's mental health combined with her methods of increasing the publicity of his pieces by bringing public bus tours to a private community and provoking fights with neighbors absolutely ruined everything. I don't know what's worse---that they could be removed and shuffled around, exposing them to potential damage; OR to be purchased by a private owner and given a permanent home where the general public would be unable to see them at all. There is just no ending to this situation that isn't crushing. What an incredible loss, and not at all the eulogy his talent deserves.

This is an outstanding business idea! These ladies deserve this positive recognition! Thank you, Independent, for making our city aware of another way to recycle!

Re: “Women of SET serve up large portion

Somehow the online version of this review showed up with some paragraphing issues. The print version shows the correct paragraphing. Sorry about the additional breaks above making the review a choppy ready. Thanks...Bill Wheeler

Re: “Black Box Theatre closes doors, to be replaced by comedy club

Our family will forever be grateful for Nancy and Black Box. We are so sad to see it go as her talent was a force to be reckoned with. Nancy and Black Box had a major impact on students, parents, and the community. Joy radiates back stage and actors and audiences love being there. They have had a major impact on the community and has also won "Best of Springs" awards both last year and this year.

Re: “Black Box Theatre closes doors, to be replaced by comedy club

I'm so sorry to hear about Nancy and the Black Box theatre, but I can't wait for a new comedy club to open in Colorado Springs!

Re: “Black Box Theatre closes doors, to be replaced by comedy club

Back Box will be sorely missed. I was so fortunate to see many great productions there. Nancy is wonderful.
