Re: “District attorney candidates bring in the cash

The men and women of Classic Homes are not donating to Waller because they think hes a competent attorney. Its so they can ask favors on their projects. Dont mistake that.

Re: “District attorney candidates bring in the cash

Weak candidate fields are becoming the norm. No matter who one votes for, the result will be yet another Dan May clone

Re: “District attorney candidates bring in the cash

It's time to get rid of establishment, career politicians like Waller, who are propped up by developers. So gross.

Re: “Roads tax "vote yes" effort draws thousands of dollars in support from contractors

EmilySmith1:

"This Reporter" was using accurate information, as she generally does, at THE TIME the story was written.

What she wrote was:

" its website is inaccessible " - - "That Reporter" did NOT report that the site was 'Down'

And it was - AT THAT TIME. Any number of people tried to log onto the site and were directed to a page that is common when a site has been 'hacked'.

"Colorado Springs Forward" is a very competent organization for fundraising and promoting tax increases.

I am not sure where this reporter gets their information, but the CSF website is not down and CSF has never been closed for business.

Re: “Roads tax "vote yes" effort draws thousands of dollars in support from contractors

Yes, Springs Forward is a security risk.
I don't trust a tax being promoted by the states spirit animal the orange cone. We already have RTA which includes potholes. The City could have voted to keep the 7 million in 2B toward the roads and done away with this tax.

Bad planning by Mayor Suthers.

Re: “City switches EMS gears

AMR is falling to meet the current standards and for a long time now. What makes Colorado Springs think its going to be any different now.

Re: “Roads tax "vote yes" effort draws thousands of dollars in support from contractors

The Colorado Springs Forward website - - as of 4:50 pm 15 Oct 2019 a.d. appears to have been hacked - and four minutes after I saw the site - - I received an email notice from MicroSoft: "How to protect yourself online"

If you go to the site out of morbid curiosity - - might be advisable NOT to click on whatever opens up as several of my friends describe a different suspicious looking page opens up.

Re: “Changes ahead for health care in Colorado

" reinsurance program a state enterprise that covers a portion of high-cost claims"

In other words, these folks get lower health insurance premiums because the rest of us are going to cover claims through our taxes. Again? Really?

Re: “Hikers rescued in midnight mission at Cheyenne Mountain State Park

Stephanie, as a former climbing, mountaineering and skiing guide, etc, I can most assuredly say that he/she made some critical errors, none of which is excusable. True, we dont know the whole story, but there is enough there to make reasoned, critical judgements. Im not implying perfection, but if I (or any other guide) had made such errors, I would expect to held accountable, and, perhaps, never guide again.

Re: “Lamborn helps Trump re-election bid

Doug.. how do you support Trumps theft of congressionally approved military funds and now diverted for Trumps vanity border wall?
You are an embarrassment to every member of the district who has served in the military. You took an oath to support and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC. Do your job!!!

Re: “Hikers rescued in midnight mission at Cheyenne Mountain State Park

EPCSAR saved my life on Pikes Peak 11 years ago. I know first hand of the many arduous, time consuming details in their efforts not mentioned here. They also sacrifice their own unpaid time, So, my opinion is that each one of those Broadmoor residents, and the guide, should be making a hefty donation. They are alive today. And, yes, I hope to see pressure for The Broadmoor to make a sizable dollar amount! As far as commenting on the guide, we dont know what happened out there, as well as any training or relationship with the hotel.

Re: “Hikers rescued in midnight mission at Cheyenne Mountain State Park

What does a photo depicting an avalanche probing line have to do with this article in any way, shape, or form...?!? That was a very poor choice. Also, I bet that guide will be seeking new employment. And, as previously stated, the Broadmoor (aka Fraudmore) should reimburse all expenses incurred.

Re: “Hikers rescued in midnight mission at Cheyenne Mountain State Park

Guide, what a joke! They should be fired and the costs of the rescue be paid by the Broadmoor Hotel. The guests should be reimbursed for the costs associated with this outing.

Re: “Hikers rescued in midnight mission at Cheyenne Mountain State Park

So, the Broadmoor guide let these people go out without proper clothing or food for a hike, and EPC Search & Rescue then had to risk a night rescue in poor terrain to bail them out.

Re: “DA Dan May refers De'Von Bailey police shooting case to a grand jury

""We're just hoping the prosecuting attorney will handle this ethically and do the right thing," he said."

For these folks, "the right thing" is to put the cops in prison, no matter what.

To the rest of the community, "the right thing" has already been done, by way of an independent investigation and District Attorney review.

Re: “Independent report: Most people shot by officers are armed

If the police have kept accurate records.
There is no standardized police reporting when it comes to guns.

Re: “Falck Ambulance settles unfair competitive practices claims

What is AMR times like in Colorado Springs now? How many times is AMR paying CSFD Ambulances to respond because they have no ambulance available? How many Fire based ambulance transport agency in El Paso county rescinded or restricted the Mutual aid agreements with AMR? How many employees have you talked to from AMR that said they are staying I would bet none. How is the AMR contract in Pueblo working out for them?
AMR employees are great and proud of there service to the community how ever local senior leaders are more worried about profit margins and pay incentives they get then about there employees or providing the enough crews to needed to run a quality 911 transport service.
