Re: “UPDATE: Female CSPD police officers win federal court decision about physical testing

When there is disparate impact discrimination under Title VII, plaintiffs are entitled to actual damages (e.g., back pay) and may be awarded attorney's fees but not compensatory (e.g., emotional distress) or punitive damages.

Re: “Another reader's take on Incline traffic

Great example of the ideology that's prevailed recently: "A few inconsiderate people caused me to have a bad time, so we need to change the rules for everyone."
There's nothing inherently dangerous about descending the Incline. People should stay in control and yield to uphill hikers. Yes, there are a few morons who don't follow these basic principles. There's also a few morons in every other [less strenuous] walk of life. Hold these individuals accountable instead of ordering change for the masses.
Also understand that the Incline is a popular, public hike. If you're an enthusiast and are going to have a problem with people getting in your way while crushing it in 24 minutes (nice work), here's a pro tip: maybe don't do the Incline on one of the busiest days of the year.
Look, I get frustrated by the amount of people on the Incline and the lack of respect/etiquette of some, too. My solution: I typically only do it during non-peak times. Otherwise, I put up with it and don't complain, or hike something else.

Re: “Divisions in El Paso County Democratic Party revealed in defections and drama

If the last election told us anything it's that what we have been doing doesn't work as well as we thought. So we can keep doing the same thing and continue to lose or we can step outside the box and try something new. I'm up for something new and I believe that new blood never hurts as long as they also listen to experience.

Re: “Another reader's take on Incline traffic

The rules recommend going down Barr Trails for safety. There's no rule that says you can't go back down the Incline. Of course common hiking courtesy is that uphill traffic has right of way and those going down shouldn't endanger those going up. It's wide enough that there shouldn't be an issue if people stay to the right.

Re: “Another reader's take on Incline traffic

Rocky,
Going down is supposed to to be against the rules, right? Why are you attacking the guy that follows the rules?

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Thanks to Electra for taking a new approach!

By the way, I think it is telling that there is a photo of a weight room with a caption that "Police officers use weights to get in shape" and the room is completely empty!

Re: “UPDATE: Transgender service in the military — what's happening now?

"It's only male and female, girls and boys, XX and XY. " - John Ritchie

There is also XXY, XYY, XXYY, etc. XXY occurs in about 1 out of every 1000 to 2000 births. About the same for XYY. XXYY is more rare at around 1 in every 40,000 to 80,000 births.

You really should watch Through the Wormhole Season 7 Episode 3 where Morgan Freeman explores if there are more than two genders. You will find it eye opening.

Re: “Divisions in El Paso County Democratic Party revealed in defections and drama

You'd never hear this level of honesty about or from the local Republican (or any other) party. I can be a party member and still be open minded when when looking at the candidates presented.

Sorry that Liz feels a volunteer is a job that owes her something. Don't pick up the box to avoid injury.

Colorado Springs is no place for snowflake libtards. Please leave our nice conservative (red) city for the likes of Boulder. Signed, every red-blooded, patriotic Republican in this town!

Re: “Making lasting memories after life

What a great way to honor someone's memory. My grandmother told us that at her funeral she wanted us to sing happy uplifting songs. In a way it reminded us of how positive she was all her life. Thank you for sharing your experiences, he seemed like a good guy. http://www.michels-lundquist.com/our-services/

Re: “UPDATE: Female CSPD police officers win federal court decision about physical testing

Mary1, lest's start with Cathy Buckley. Would you describe her as slim? Not in a million years. Arndt? Nope. Her sister Jen at EPSO is rather large as well.

I'm sure they don't know the name on my post. Just like your momma didn't name you "Mary1", the name on my post is a screen name as well. These women are out of shape, plain and simple. That is why they can't pass the test.

And by the way, Mary1, I've been in law enforcement for decades in El Paso County. I know the job quite well.

Re: “Penrose Hospital workers banned from parking in the Old North End

I'm sorry, but who wrote this? And why talk to a husband of a contract employee? Me, being a "lower paid employee", have no issues riding the shuttle or felt unsafe in the past 2 years of working here.. It's actually nice down time where I can chat with other employees about all the great things with Lincoln school we enjoy, check social media or just relax since I don't have to do the driving. Not to mention the shuttle drivers are awesome, friendly and do a great job. It's a small price to pay, parking offsite, to allow much needed space for patients who are here to receive care- which is why we all work here right? And we shouldn't park in neighborhoods- I guarantee you'd be upset if a ton of cars where parking in on your street or in front of your house constantly. It's annoying right? Let's put ourselves in the shoes of the patients and our neighbors and stop being selfish. Most work here because we believe in Penrose-St. Francis and want to be the best we can be. Not to mention I've ridden the shuttle many time with executives or as you'd call them "higher paid employees". Sounds like you went solely off the gripe of one husband, not truly understanding the reason, the need or employees thoughts. I typically like all the Indy articles and views, but you blew it with this one. You're no better than the rest of the media using words to grab attention and building a story off half truths.

Re: “Another reader's take on Incline traffic

Hmmm maybe you should have been looking up instead of watching your feet hit every plank as you run. Its funny for years all we heard was open the Incline to the public. Now it is and everybody is gripping about the public using it. Well folks Public allows all to use it. Im willing to bet theres as many hikers and dog walkers that think your running is just as dangerous as you think they are. Get over it if you want a trail to go down roll up your sleaves open your wallet and get to work. It was not opened for just you to use.

Re: “Can Air Force Academy cadets become parents while enrolled? Apparently so.

Am I the only one who noticed the remark "being added to our family of 5"? Does she have other children, or are they including pets? This makes it sound like they've been a "family" for some time.
