Re: “A look at voter turnout across the region

Re: “A look at voter turnout across the region

no we just understand that no matter what we want the city council does whatever it wants......we want rec pot to pay for all the improvements being done we don't want a raise in taxes...see where that got us? this isn't OUR city this is THEIR city...we don't count. we thought we did, but it seems we were wrong.....even with us not voting in force...they still pass whatever they want and justify it..............and no one says a word......cuz if they did they would become a target....

Re: “Sheriff Elder lashes out at Indy reporter

Whats that Holmes? You claim you dont work at EPSO, and are not connected to the sheriff, yet you make a comment like that. Hmmm...just blew your cover, genius.

Re: “Sheriff Elder lashes out at Indy reporter

Bwaahaaa, Holems you crack me up...... your either an Elder crony or your someone who thinks the the earth is flat. I know that you keep saying that the docs dont have to be notarized, but no one is distracted from the fact that Elder and/or his command staff ordered those two to notarize documents more than one year later ( which happens to be illegal and therefore a crime), But dont worry your pretty little head..... the truth is coming out and neither you or i will have to prove it. Word on the street is that it is being looked into behind the scene. And in the famous words of Jim Carrey (in the movie Liar Liar) And the truth will set you free :)

Re: “Sheriff Elder lashes out at Indy reporter

People go off and do a lot of crazy things. You'd have to ask them. But it's true, they do not need to be notarized. Check with the CSPD, same with them. Your burden of proof is on Elder's wrongdoing. Good luck with that!

Re: “Sign the petition, call your congressional reps, to impeach Donald Trump

Re: “Sheriff's Office asks for crime footage

@Mike Randall - that's a great idea!

One would believe we have a right - it's a taxpayer owned building and they are government workers - their paychecks are funded by the taxpayer! It's our right! That would be some true transparency! And, didn't Elder say he was all about transparency?

And Pam, come on ... where is the KRW report?

Re: “Sign the petition, call your congressional reps, to impeach Donald Trump

@TruB Oh, rest assured, I am aware that GOPers are just a nasty as Dem officials. But here the Dems are asking to impeach the POTUS for doing things that they do as well.

Neither party does what it was originally intended to do. The GOP has swung too far to the right, the Dems have swung to far to the left, and neither is willing to work together for the good of the people. Washington DC has turned into one big cesspool.

Re: “Sign the petition, call your congressional reps, to impeach Donald Trump

That is hysterical Mike Randall. Maybe GOPers should take personal responsibility.
Politicians on both sides are screwing Americans but you go ahead and believe that the right wing isn't part of the problem. How about you spend more time equally applying where the guilt sits. It is really humorous that with the Actions of Roy Moore you want to only believe that dems are at fault.

Re: “Sheriff's Office asks for crime footage

I would like to ask the Sheriff's Office to start making video available to us of the shady deals that go on behind closed doors on their 5th floor and elsewhere.

Re: “El Paso County jail is home to people too poor to pay fines or make bail

This is terrible!!!

People should retaliate against the Sheriff's Office by not breaking the law and thus depriving the jail of any inmates. That'd teach them a lesson!!!

Re: “Sign the petition, call your congressional reps, to impeach Donald Trump

"... the terrible, amoral example he sets for the children of this nation, his numerous allegations of sexual assault and..."

Oh, that's an impeachable offense? Hmmm.... Let's see what else is going on in the news today:

"...says Democratic Rep. Paul Rosenthal of Denver inappropriately touched him and tried to kiss him at a 2012 fundraiser..."

"Democratic Rep. Steve Lebsock of Adams County has denied claims by a fellow lawmaker, Rep. Faith Winter, that he sexually harassed her at a party in 2016."

"A woman accused Minnesota Democratic Sen. Al Franken on Thursday of groping her and kissing her without her consent in 2006 while she was on a USO Tour overseas."

Maybe the Dems should spend less time trying to go after Trump and more time cleaning their own filthy house!!!

Re: “Spring's downtown bicycle infrastructure progresses despite growing pains

I think these bike friendly changes need to thought out better - our roads are already hazardous and driving is often a dangerous activity on streets seriously over crowded and drivers who have zero patience for anyone in their path vehicles, pedestrians or cyclists.

Where are the studies from the motorized point of view? Overnight people who parked on the street have their parking taken away and drivers are forced into traffic delays and congestion all so empty bike lanes can be kept available at all times.

Perhaps it would be in the public safety interest to consider adjusting sidewalks to allow for the bicycle traffic? Maybe we just dig up all the parkways trees and grass and turn them into bike paths - it makes about as much sense as what is being done to high traffic roadways for the sake of an alternative method of transportation.

And one might also question why if cars are suppose to be abandoned there is not a more aggressive attempt at improving public transportation options in this community?

Re: “Sheriff Elder lashes out at Indy reporter

You prove your theory. What would be their motive? If they arent required to be notarized, why would they have fraudulently notarized them? Unless they were instructed to do so. Please explain.

Re: “Drake Power Plant meetings slated to talk about sidelining

Poudre Valley coal-generated, SO2-scrubbed electricity: $22 per mWatt hr. Solar power, including massive subsidies: $100 per MWatt-hr.

Increasing electric rates nearly five fold is a great way to put financial stress on Colorado Springs ratepayers as well as chase the last remnants of manufacturing out of Colorado Springs. Add to the increased cost of production, calls from the mayor and the Gazette to increase the surplus rate (formally known as payment in lieu of tax or PILT) by at least 60%.

Utilities customers already pay an extra amount for each KWatt-hr they use to create a fake surplus in Utilities revenues that gets converted into a blank check for the City government. Continuing calls to provide a backdoor tax increase by upping the fake surplus above the new pothole tax and stormwater tax already put in place will continue to put stress on citizen budgets, especially those on fixed incomes

Re: “Sheriff Elder lashes out at Indy reporter

Holmes, youre avoiding the real issue. Do you really think those 2 employees took it upon themselves to illegally notarize hundreds of affidavits?
