I went there to attend a fundraiser for a guy who has bone cancer. I am a biker and had leathers on of course, also a small swastika pin that was given me by a friend. My friend told me an uncle was owner of that pin and died on the Russian Front during WWII. I wear it so that I can tell people what our country is becoming should they ask. Triple Dickle guys refused to let me in. Someone might be offended they said. Yeah, I am offended. I went around the side of the building (you know, smokers pen) and gave 50 bucks to the guy running the fundraiser and split. Pathetic people running this bar. I was in there at Christmas prior to that and told jokes and stories. Had everybody laughing but that memory is tarnished now by narrow minds of the employees.
Oh, I see "Black Pussy" is playing! I am offended by that racist sounding band name. And it is racist even though they may think it is cute. Put on your white sheets and go to the Dribbling Dickel. It is a dump as well.
I wonder if CSIndy will announce any events for the recall effort.
I sure hope little Stevie Bach's wife doesn't find out about his licentious affair with Phil Anschutz.
Have to agree that the entire town of Manitou wouldn't be the same for the residents or visitors if there are no limits to pot shops - I prefer a mix and balance of businesses and visitors.
It makes sense that in a conservative and Chrisitan city, where generosity is a primary value, that there would be the services to support and thus attract more and more of those whose resources and hope are running on empty.
Good...Morse is a large scale disaster and warrants a large scale solution removing him from public 'service'.
Running for any office in particular or just:
"Elected Official At Large"
Thought of the day..................
I'm loco, I wonder if Staci will vote for me?
Let's keep John Morse in office. Volunteer to help keep local politics local!
Awesome, more support for the cause !!
Great food from the kitchen, but the out front organization is a total failure.
They told me one time they had no seating available when there was only one table occupied...when I pointed that out they said that one of the wait staff didn't show up and they could not service the remaining tables.
This place, especially without a beer license (who eats curry without beer) will be vacating this space like every other eatery that has been here.
Smily's, at the same time, continues to flourish.
If someone handed me that rag of a paper I would firstly assume I would not be able to have an intelligent conversation with anyone in a town that depended on that as its news source.
Then I would actually just head straight for the counter to buy a one way ticket back out of town.
Not good for Bach to make a connection between himself in that half baked 'we don't have reporters in the budget' advertising circular.
Golly Pam, with all the favorable stories you write, why would the gazette need bother?
Typical liberal hubris:
I've known Terry Rector for five years. He has represented my friends and a family member in legal matters, all that ended well. I would not ignore Terry's direction. I've never known him to plot against Parkside. If anything, he is willing to risk his personal comfort to make sure that the officers and directors don't repeat the mistakes of the past. Why would you not file a D & O claim against the Board to receive the funds necessary to offset the previous officers decision to fail to comply with Parkside covenants? If the officers truly can prove that they shopped for a master policy, then that would be encouraging. But their decision to disregard the covenants and then fail to change the by-laws eliminating the master policy insurance requirement is not appropriate. They were out of line on both counts. You individual owners and members of Parkside deserved to know BEFORE the fire that you didn't carry a master policy and that you needed to increase your coverage and protection through other means. If the D & O claim was shepherded properly, there might not be ANY special assessments for infrastructure repair. If the officers were not so unwilling to admit that they failed to carry out their obligations under the marching orders of the covenants, this piece would possibly be finished now. Terry says, it's not about digging up the past. It's about correcting a problem by utilizing the insurance in place to satisfy any and all special assessments and MOVING FORWARD. How many more special assessments will surface in the near future as these homes are brought toward completion? The moving target is going to be the Drainage piece in the reconstruction. It's a moving target and NO ONE can get their arms around those numbers right now. If a D & O claim is filed, will a board member here and there be sad about the discussion? Sure. But that comes with the territory of volunteerism and the price you pay to be the leader. People in authority make the best decision that they can under the circumstances and we go on. But we need to remedy the outcome of the decisions made. Insurance agent, Mr. Cobb's comments at the last meeting stated that this master policy of insurance was not practical, wouldn't cover the items that failed and is not affordable. What's sad is that he has made this determination public without backing it up with proof. A lot of people drank the friendly kool aid. Don't be misled. While the availability of the insurance is important to this discussion, the resistance from the board toward filing a D & O claim is not for the benefit of you lot owners in Parkside. It's to avoid the confrontation and the sadness. You don't have time for this. The one-year statute of limitations deadline for a claim against the D & O Coverage is 26 June. Don't waste time. Urge your HOA to file that D & O claim immediately or you will regret every dollar you pay toward the special assessments in the years to come. Thank you to the author of this article for not laying down on searching out the details. The public needs to know and you are a good steward.
If the mayor and city council think we will give them a pass if they vote to ban recreational marijuana shops in Colorado Springs, they are mistaken.
It is this kind of prohibitionist thinking that we are all working so hard to combat right now.
Marijuana is not a public safety issue...Prohibition is!
I know that Woodland Park is always looking for some way to make it a "destination" town. Just sayin'...
rfk: After disregarding your feeble attempts to be sarcastically cute ("cap pistols", "play cowboy", "center of your universe"), one need only a single sentence to discern how ridiculously partisan and pathetic your post was. "But most people have grown weary of the ubiquitous NRA bullying tactics." "most people" It is hilarious how dim-witted, self-absorbed liberals think that, if they believe something, "most" other people also believe it. Please (attempt to) back up your theory that "most people have grown weary". You obviously have no clue what "ubiquitous" means. The only time I see the NRA mentioned is by anti-gun zealots looking for a phony boogeyman. Lastly, please provide examples of the "bullying tactics" of which you have grown so weary.
By the by, I am not a member of the NRA and the only guns I own are shotguns for bird hunting. I simply do not particularly care for loud-mouthed liberals.
Cowards? Really? You need 100 round magazines while many of us seem to get through life without needing a gun for life support. So who's the coward? We're not afraid of background checks, why are you? And no one's taking away your cap pistols - you can still play cowboy all you want and continue to have firearms as the center of your universe. But most people have grown very weary of the ubiquitous NRA bullying tactics. I'm proud that we have lawmakers like John Morse who have the courage to stand up to the NRA's one-sided interpretation of the 2nd Amendment.
