Re: “Anything's possible when Cirque hits the Springs

Saw the show in Aurora. Pretty good.

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. http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2018/06/26/diaz-j26.html

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.

Re: “Colorado Springs Creative Collective moving forward with Artspace development

I wonder if this will create similar patterns of growth as the RiNo District in Denver had? Rent hikes in surroundings areas...Displacement of homeless folx in the community there....
What is low income housing in other areas? Is it typically below $500/month?

I'm a low income artist-I love the idea of community space and working space in our city, how amazing!
Let us do this right. Let us move forward in the Colorado Springs way, not the Denver or New York or Chicago way!
New developments are, in fact, a form of gentrification it is difficult to avoid that. It is a demon to tackle when growing our city.
How are we going to address this?

Re: “Colorado Classic cycling race starts in the Springs, attracts world-class cyclists

It is just a little annoying to always have the life and routine of the neighborhood disrupted by street closures and detours, I know many Old Colorado City businesses had to close or did very little business during this event, Colorado Avenue is a main business area through the Westside. How much of this cycling event will benefit anything that needs repairs or improvements for the neighborhood expected to take it on the chin for the good of the "community?" Just wonder who benefited the most from this interference in normal residents lives. There was traffic backed up along Pikes Peak and it is dangerous because the drivers are frustrated with the delays. I struggled to get back to the safety of my own driveway only to find a postcard in my mail announcing there will be again be road closures on August 20th for yet another event. Territory Days is disruptive enough and now every time I turn around Pikes Peak looks like a parking lot. From my point of view it isn't worth the impacts.
