Re: “Former County Democratic Party leader forms new club to keep politicking

Seems like you've always been stepping back, Dave. You're a keyboard warrior and a complainer, not an active part of the local political movement, so mind your own business.

Re: “Utilities Board agrees to add more solar after colorful public comment

$107? For a solar farm? That's a smoking hot deal. Sign me up.

Re: “Former County Democratic Party leader forms new club to keep politicking

You're right, perhaps hobnobbing is strong.
I'll step back and let you continue to just be petulant and petty to new blood and energy, as you socialize.

Re: “Utilities Board agrees to add more solar after colorful public comment

This plan to tax all utility customers for the benefit of the few is a collectivist scheme. Assuming that there are 28,000 utility customers who want solar powered energy, let THEM voluntarily sign up for this service and have THEM pay for it. $3 million divided by 28,000 is $107. Let's see if the Climate Change believers are willing to spend $107 to receive what THEY want or if they want solar only if OTHERS pay for it.

Re: “Bristol Brewing Company adds canning line

So, not adding a canning line. Maybe adds a line of cans? Or something not the opposite of what the story says.
Just Nitpicking.

Re: “Utilities Board agrees to add more solar after colorful public comment

Bill W.,

I suggest you reread all of your comments starting at the top. If you expect courtesy and respect, you should practice what you preach. Your very deliberate insulting comments and condescending arrogance are noted.

Not only did you deliberately insult me and anyone who might agree with me, but you also accused me in the middle of the conversation of trying to hide the data when in fact I had provided you the link.

I did not intend to insult you. I was merely trying to provide the detailed instructions for you to open the link previously provided since you were unable to navigate the page.

I also note that after I provided you a link to an appropriately credentialed PhD in Atmospheric Science who is a current hurricane researcher who also provided both a full article and the link to his research all of which said essentially the same thing that I stated (although far more eloquently); you choose to disengage and express hurt feelings at how I provided you the detailed instructions on how to view the embedded video link.

I am sorry you were insulted. That was not my intention. But I most certainly have provided the data to support my position.

Re: “UPDATE: MRFF calls out chaplain who says not all religions need constitutional protection

The "Newsweek reports, and other major news cites" (sic) are merely reporting on the MRFF complaints, not independently making those statements. This publication is merely fanning the flames and making it appear to be larger than it is.

Re: “UCCS announces multi-million dollar branding effort

Are you friggin kidding me ?? This looks like another "Live it Up" debacle and black hole of money and time for something that provides no value "what so ever" for the community. Instead of blowing $6M on a waste of PR and Branding, how abut UCCS spend $500K a year on helping to solve the Affordable Housing problem here in Colorado Springs, which will bring a "boatloat" of possible students to your campus who most likely will be the beneficiaries of an affordable house to live in. And the housing technology and enlightened workforce exists here locally to make it happen. Contact me and I can show you how.

Re: “Utilities Board agrees to add more solar after colorful public comment

Respect for others should be a hallmark of all those commenting on this forum, and not just those elected to office. The responsibility to be civil is especially applicable to those of us commenting anonymously. Respect for the opinions expressed by commenters depends on the merit of the opinion and wrong opinions or insultingly expressed opinions should be challenged, and challenged vigorously. Those commenters suffering hurt feelings at the reception their opinions are receiving should review their comments to see if there is room for improvement.

Re: “Reader: Call them what they are


"For the last time cs indy stop publushing this utter trash. Drivel. How are you still in business?"

Short Answer: it's called "Freedom of the Press." Check it out. You can find it in the First Amendment to the US Constitution.

As for going after advertisers, have at it. Fortunately, you are free to use your First Amendment right to deny that same right to others. It's a great country, isn't it?

No video is displayed or played using Safari. I don't appreciate your condescending and insulting comments regarding my ability to follow a link.

I have challenged you but I have not insulted you. Respect for others should be a hallmark of those elected to office. After all, it all of the rest of us that you supposedly represent.

Why purchase it when they know once they own enough of the city Council, Mayors office and County Government it will be given to them.

Re: “Utilities Board agrees to add more solar after colorful public comment

The WSJ article makes the suggestion that to avoid the devastating destruction caused by category 4 & 5 hurricanes, people should not live along the coastal areas. Doing that is sensible. Fighting Climate Change via fossil fuel reduction and destroying our economy in the futile effort to achieve the impossible is nonsense. Do the Climate Change advocates think they are God?

Re: “Is the Colorado River a person? A green group is asking for that designation.

Now that I thought of it, your urine does have human rights, as it's immigrating from your body to a new body. Water immigrates WAY MORE OFTEN than anything in existence, so I suppose that indeed, JScott, your urine is an owner of human rights as does your sperm, blood, and other fluids, until you willingly release it. (I feel bile does not deserve rights because it riots so often for any reason, even when it doesn't need to.) Also, Mikey: I suppose that you won't be a sex offender because you're putting fluids from your body (Urine specifically) into the river. (Don't actually ask me to be your lawyer because I've never set foot in a Law School)

Also, I'm not from Colorado, and I have felt nutsy quite often, so maybe this is insanity you gaze upon and my worst fears are confirmed... here's hoping that this is reason and sanity though! '^^

Re: “Utilities Board agrees to add more solar after colorful public comment

Bill W, you're joking right? you couldn't follow a simple link?

The link to the board meeting shows the agenda on the right side of your screen and the video on the left side.

on the left side of the screen

push. the. arrow. in. the. video. screen.

to view the video. (on my computer the video starts automatically)

then jump ahead to one hour and fourteen minutes into the meeting. That is where I was given 3 minutes to counter the previous hour of global warming propaganda.

here is another hurricane research scientist's article making much the same points as I did. He had more than 3 minutes to respond....…

note that his research on the historically low number of hurricanes…

was cited in the IPCC report.

Re: “Protected bike lanes take time to adjust to, as early grievances attest

Protected bike lanes can be awesome! This is a horrible implementation though. Not surprised lol!

The current situation could be easily improved in a few ways. At every intersection of the lane, including parking entrances and driveways, at least one or two more of the parking spaces at the end should be removed, providing more visibility for turning cars. The islands are clearly not big enough! Additional signage and markings that are more visible and bold should be added.

Sometimes making a trail sharing the sidewalk can work really well. Ideally with barriers and good markings. It's definitely been done before in the world, although that would be a really big hassle.
