Re: “Art on the Streets sculpture vandalized, Downtown Ventures searching for missing piece

I'm not surprised, with all of the homeless junkies and tweakers wandering around in that area. Crime is off the charts and yet we can't roust up the homeless because it violates their "rights". Meanwhile they continue to steal and trash our once beautiful city.

Re: “The Ruth Holley Library Rededication and Open Mic has us remembering a real community hero

It honestly would have been nice to know the date of this event. I wasn't able to find any info on this event anywhere. You posted the time (it might have been inadvertent b/c it listed under a picture) but now way to know when this event took place. Would have been nice to attend. Would have been nice to donate and see what books were avail for sale. I guess the article would have been nice if it was finished.

Re: “Rumor is Funky's current production should be a cathartic laugh-fest

My wife and I saw this production the second night of its run. Right off the bat I knew this was going to be a fun-filled play. The cast was right on cue and everything was rolling smoothly except for the dead guy. Absolute chaos toward the end of the second act had really finished off a great evening!

Re: “Cripple Creek’s new Christmas Casino and a conversation about the holiday

Really?? You are kidding me. If you want to limit Freedom of Expression, Speech etc start by shutting up. If you want to call yourself a "newspaper" then print some news.
I went to school many years ago with a guy named Jim Christmas. I winder if he alive and being maligned by righteous (self-appointed) PC pinheads. PC is really a bigoted practice and an infringement on the !st Amendment. Believing people are offended by stereotyping or jokes is saying they are too immature or stupid to know the difference between humor and insult. Belittling people is not a good thing, you idiots should know that.

Re: “Pikes Peak Litter Letter project draws attention to trash in local waterways

This is a joke. Take a walk along Shooks Run from E. Fountain to E. Las Vegas. Gaze upon a wasteland of trash and garbage, five gallons buckets of feces (where do they go when full? Into a regular trash bin? Do you think the trash compacter dumptruck is meant to process that stuff? Is the landfill rated for human waste disposal????), and ... and a huge 10 cubic yard dumpster SW of the High Tops Dispensary at 1022 S. Royer.

Giant dumpster. Unused.
Good luck with the utopian experiment. Soon winter will be here; the entire area will be a blaze with wild fire.

Well meaning charity; gone horribly awry.

Re: “Radio Ha Ha to support KCMJ 96.3

I think your source for this story may not be reliable.

1. KCMJ started streaming in 2014
2.It's been broadcasting for 2.5 years.
3. It's frequency, whenever it IS on the air, is 93.9 FM

Just FYI

Re: “Converge Lecture Series cancels Junot Díaz lecture following allegations of sexual assault and aggression

Cowardly decision. 2 of the 3 main accusers have been hopelessly discredited. How can anyone prove innocence given the vague insidious smear campaign being mounted. There has been clamour for him to lose his jobs. His works have been preemptorily removed from bookshelves. Children's events have been cancelled! (Like - allegations of pedo??! At best/worst we have a "forcible kiss" idk of a 26 year old). Most media reports have been 1 sided hatchet jobs. Gives the impression that any allegations, no matter what is later revealed, stand as incontrovertible truth of their content. That cannot be right and it most certainly isn't fair. Shame on you, CLS. Look forward to a deeply tedious & profoundly unenlightening revised series.

Re: “Converge Lecture Series cancels Junot Díaz lecture following allegations of sexual assault and aggression

That's interesting. In response to the same charges against Diaz, made on social media, MIT recently cleared him to continue teaching there. And the Boston Review also recently announced that Diaz would continue to be the magazine's fiction editor.

Re: “Captain Kirk in Colorado Springs: A Trekkie's thoughts on William Shatner's UCCS speech

Im glad you come to know a little bit more of him after this speech. Because simply questioning what makes him qualified for this at the beginning is just astonishing. It wont happen if you only knew a little bit more of his career path other than Star Trek beforehead.

Re: “Captain Kirk in Colorado Springs: A Trekkie's thoughts on William Shatner's UCCS speech

What an amazing article! With that lovely balance between the Trekkie and the journalist... But Shatner as seen through the eyes of a Trekkie is priceless - and it's as it should be!

---If you students take your diploma and scroll it up and look through it, as if it were a telescope, and fixate on points of light, you might see something different. You might see hope.

Okay, yes, its philosophical and needlessly romantic, but that's exactly what I would want and expect in a speech by William Shatner. He went on, saying that technology is moving at a breakneck pace. The world is changing around us all the time. The one thing that doesnt seem to change, or at least moves with tectonic slowness, is human nature," he said. "And thats the final frontier. Human nature needs to change. ---

This bit was extremely moving. A piece of advice we desperately need, especially right now, and it's so fitting that it should come from our Captain! And this whole article is so full of sentiment, it's beautiful. But hey, big fan of your writing here, so!

And what a wonderful, hopeful conclusion you gave us. Thank you!

Re: “UCCS' Art WithOut Limits Program commissions unique soundart installation for Ent Center for the Arts

Thanks for the story Alissa! We did not acquire the site specific sound art work - we did commission the artist to create it and it is temporary - it will be up for one year and then will be dismantled after December 2018.
