Re: “County hires defense attorneys for malicious prosecution case

Normally one attorney could represent all of the defendants, given that they were all county employees at the time. Now, different attorneys for all of them. That's usually an indication one or more of them plan to point the finger at the other defendants, triggering separate representation. Ought to be fun!

Re: “County hires defense attorneys for malicious prosecution case

Good Lord! Lawsuits, payouts, legal fees this could very well be one of the underlying reasons the County asked the voters to extend 1A two years PRIOR to its original sunset date. All that money to cover their own corruption. Sad and pathetic! But, they won't ever be held accountable!

Re: “City slammed in EPA lawsuit ruling; could stormwater fees be increased?

@happyfew At some point, you have to place blame on the city taxpayers who keep electing these same buffoons into office, expecting better results. The city even acknowledged they were going to "bait and switch" on the stormwater tax money, but approved it anyhow. Oh well...

Re: “Lawsuit filed in Royal Gorge railway death

"On the day of her death, Leslie Cacy served as the conductor..."

The conductor on a train is the one person solely responsible for the operation of the train (not the engineer). As the conductor, she was responsible for not allowing the train to proceed if she knew there were safety violations. She obviously allowed it to proceed and that safety violation resulted in her death. Unfortunate, but I would place responsibility on her.

When the costs of stromwater projects exceeding $2200 a FOOT like it did with the
Platte Ave project City Council will have to hit the taxpayers wallet like an ATM.

Re: “City slammed in EPA lawsuit ruling; could stormwater fees be increased?

The stormwater fee should not be used to pay for penalties assessed for bad development decisions approved by the Planning Commission and City Council - the fee was passed by voters to pay for actual stormwater projects, meet compliance standards and maintenance on the system. They had best find a more equitable way to pay fines caused by poor planning decisions and start charging developers compliance fees instead of pitting one municipal service against another all at the ratepayers expense when they are in campaign mode for their own re-election.

Re: “El Paso County sheriff faces new lawsuit

Good luck to you Keith, hope you win.

Elder just keeps setting records...

Most sued El Paso County Sheriff.
Most hated El Paso County Sheriff.
Most corrupt El Paso County Sheriff.

Quite a legacy you are building there Bill. Getting hot on the 5th floor? It would seem that way after the comments you made in Command Staff last week.

Re: “City slammed in EPA lawsuit ruling; could stormwater fees be increased?

"In this case the public will be the loser but this lawsuit was about the development winners," he adds in an email.

The public is always the loser. When the City suckered the taxpayers into approving a new stormwater tax, the City then looked at how much the new tax would bring in, and reduced the existing stormwater budget by the same amount, diverting that to public safety. The old 'bait and switch.'

Now the City is realizing they are going to need some of that money they diverted. But instaead of diverting it back where it belongs, you City taxpayers are going to have to bend over and take it again. LOL.... nice job.

Re: “El Paso County sheriff faces new lawsuit

Sheriff Elder has chosen the path of retaliation toward anyone who may not support him. His abuses the office and public trust in his hiring , firing and promotional practices. While he technically won the election, there is no doubt his doesn't have the aptitude to see the number of people who voted against him and understand that many Republicans blindly vote party line. He has no honor. Perhaps a jury will recognize what occurred regarding the Duda's. Other employee's will be watching to see if a jury will understand the culture of the Sheriff's Office is an atmosphere of dishonor and lack of trust with this elected Sheriff and those his selects as his management.

Holmes' comment is as embarrassing as the 35% of Colorado voters who voted to keep slavery in this state.
It isn't just our county that has hateful hypocrites many who think they are directed by God.

Re: “KOAA News5 to change ownership, Colorado Public Radio adds Springs reporter

Public radio and a number of other media organizations make the mistake of thinking their job is to produce news. People make news. It's the media's responsibility to cover it, not produce it. That's why we're in the trouble we're in. Too often, reporters think they know more than the people they are covering.

Just a small correction. KOAA is an NBC affiliate, not CBS.

Re: “Colorado Women roared in the midterm elections

Yay for Jena Griswold, Secretary of State, she s like a breath of fresh air. Rather then sending Colo voters data to the Pussy-Grabber in chief, like her opponent did, she will safeguard it here in Colorado and use it to improve voter access. So proud of this dynamic young woman! And proud of the Colorado voters who elected her.
And for those females who think its important to vote against their own sex, even brag about their ignorance, I feel sorry for you that you dont recognize your own interests withou a male giving you his permission. Thats sad......

Re: “Colorado Women roared in the midterm elections

You don't need to thank this woman. I didn't vote for one Democrat and I know plenty of other women who didn't. As far as reproductive rights, I am in complete control of my own. I remained chaste until I married. About 3 years into the marriage, my husband and I decided together that we wanted kids. We had 2. The rest of the time we used birth control or didn't have intercourse. Abstaining is free. That is how you control your own reproductive rights without the government or taxpayers getting involved at all.
You liberal women have been so misled about "pro-choice". It's irresponsible men (and some women) who are pushing it because they don't want to deal with the results of their sexual promiscuity. Don't let men get away with that. Marriage proves that they are committed to you and serious about being responsible for any children. Make them wait until they marry you!
