Re: “Motion seeks dismissal of charges against former Sheriff Terry Maketa

Prosecutors love to stack charges to bully defendants. I hope Maketa takes them to the cleaners when this is over for charging him with extra crimes with no support and dragging his name through the mud. Prosecutors charging people with weak or no evidence just to try to force a plea is unethical and lazy.

Re: “Enjoy your freedom to die

I wonder if creepy, nasty, poisonous old Jim Hightower recalls the uplifting Jonathan Edwards song "Sunshine?" The lyrics, "He can't even run his own life, I'll be damned if he'll run mine" remain powerful today as left-wing ideologues continue to try to control people's lives.

Re: “Corey Feldman recounts his evolution from former child actor to middle-aged rock act

It is well known that the cleanliness of houses is one of the most important services necessary in cleaning and upgrading our homes to the modern homes, which have been cleaned modern, which would provide the living conditions of the neighborhood and the quality of a competent body in the field with the provision of guarantees that would ensure the full guarantee of the success of the cleaning service There is no need for more money to be lost through requests for house cleaning services that do not meet their needs and are not in line with their wishes because many home cleaning companies are only seeking to offer their services through promotional methods in order to make money only without taking into consideration the ethical and professional conscience As these companies seek to satisfy customers, nothing more than this is accomplished by mastering house cleaning

Re: “City regulations on fire pits haven't triggered citations in recent years

Pam, as always, I greatly appreciate what you do for our community as an investigative journalist. Although the fire issue is my greatest concern, I just wish you had also mentioned my neighbors egregious encroachment on our City Park land upon which their fire-pits reside...

Re: “City legal advisor shifts to Parks Department

So, an attorney who was responsible for attempting to "trade away" some of our treasured park land (think: Strawberry Fields; STILL in litigation!) to the Fraudmore, is going to be an advocate for the "stewardship and conservation" of our Parks?!? I think not! I trust her as much as I trust Karen Palus...

Re: “Marijuana tax pays off for Pueblo high school seniors in scholarship program

I just got paid $16784 working off my laptop this month. And if you think that's cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers and made over $15k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do,

Speak for yourself! I think it's time for LivesLocally to live elsewhere.

Matt, I'm excited for this place too and I was also at the soft opening. Super fun! And it's taking over a space that's been empty way too long. Very cool!

Re: “Nicoletta, Jaray running for Manitou mayor

I have lived in Manitou and the Pikes peak region for 42 years, never has Manitou suffered by a totally incompetent Mayor as it has with Nicole Nicoletta. This woman has proven to us all :
a .she doesn't care about the public process, will bully citizens at council meetings and would rather NOT MEET WITH CITIZEN GROUPS(denied meeting with large groups 3x before using the POLICE to help her CUT DOWN TREES on Canon Avenue- Nicole is a RUDE BULLY !!
b. has no idea what living in a "Historical" town means. Consistently jams through useless construction projects with no advance warning's to huge "material change of appearance" for the town
c. Nicole has been a horrible leader with consistently flawed decisions on a wide variety of Manitou topics such as : parking : Wrapping Soda Springs park in steel to keep the homeless(and everybody else) out of the park while sponsoring a food bank 300 yards down the street for the homeless; Zero Tolerance program ; Cutting of trees needlessly on Canon Avenue : Consistently lying to the public - Nicoletta and her administration have graduated from the Kelly Anne Conway school of alternative facts!
d. In two council meetings alone Nicoletta WASTED $800,000.00 ofcitizens funds.... Manitou is a small town with a modest budget. Someone whom has been on food stamps recently SHOULD NOT BE ANYWHERE NEAR A $12million budget ! she has no experience .
e. All of Nicoletta's combined policies have damaged the reputation of Manitou Springs, she does not care about the voting locals at all. SHE MUST BE REMOVED !!

Re: “Whirlyball to bring recreation, craft beer to central Springs

I wish him luck, but this guy apparently didn't do much research. Nobody within 3 miles of Rustic Hills drinks craft beer and Colorado Springs is far from a bowling mecca. The only thing being rolled around here are drunks and joints.

Re: “Reader: We all know why the Civil War took place

Are you insane? do you even read or know history? your letter shows you don't get it AT ALL. ok lets start with some history, the colonists came to america to avoid religious prosecution , and a big government telling them how to live every facet of their lives. they made a good run at it got a country up and running , fought hard to keep their land and tend their crops to feed their people. This went well for a while, alot of trade and commerce came and went. from slaves to products. (slaves were brought by over by dutch and other immigrates in the form of INDENTURED SERVITUDE.) That's right they broke laws and were paying for it. slaves caught on over here as a form of labor. Many of the people in the south DID NOT own slaves, only a few very wealthy people did. now to the civil war..... it wasn't about slaves NEVER WAS..... it was about a government coming into people lives and telling them what they can and cannot do less than 100 yrs after their fathers and mothers fought to get out from under such oppression. They didn't like the fact that this new government was AGAIN telling them how to live.....did the government till the ground? did it plant the crops? did it harvest them? then how did the government have the right to tell them what to do? THIS WAS THE MIND SET. and they went to war over it. IT WAS NEVER ABOUT SLAVES BUT THE FREEDOM TO DO THEY WISHED.
