Re: “A sweet scene at the inaugural Indulgence Festival

I could have spent my money more wisely a ticket or some time two for a sample that was the size of my small dogs kibble. There were more vendors sale any thing from bathtub to windows then chocolate I'll never drive from Penrose to the Colorado Springs just to pay $5.00 to get in to pay for samples of chocolate so they can turn around and and charge a out rages amount for a bigger peace of candy. Really!$80.00 for olive oil?

Re: “UPDATE: Venetucci farmers laid off as contaminated water spoils finances

PPCF has proven thru their actions with Aspen Valley Ranch in Woodland Park they are not to be trusted. They are a non profit so I would think the easement agreements should be public record. Maybe an attorney, not associated with PPCF or any of it's board members could give an honest answer to your question.

Re: “Thin Air Theatre Company says farewell to the Butte Theater with its final production: Angel of the Christmas Mine

Not quite sure why Chris Armbrister is credited for starting professional theater in Cripple Creek when it has been a part of the town for 75 years. TATC is the group that has been there the most recent. He has never been a full time resident of Cripple Creek. For him to claim that TATC does not receive funding is completely false. This matter has everything to do with funding and the Board seeing that money being given to TATC was not being spent as claimed.

Re: “Ex-officer says he witnessed order to notarize deputy oaths

Shame on the Gazette, news media, and so called anti-corruption, conservative local radio talk show hosts (Krank, Randall, Tron) who are looking at the corrupt leadership of EPSO with a blind eye. It is you who are supposed to be keeping our elected officials honest...I guess if they are socalled Republicans you give them a pass? We're supposed to be better than that!! Thank you Pam Zubeck and CS Indy for shedding light on these cockroaches!

Re: “UPDATE: Venetucci farmers laid off as contaminated water spoils finances

I am a close relative of the Venetucci family and I am outraged to think the Pike Peak Foundation is terminating Nick and Bambi's legacy.
The board members do not understand the heavy burden and sacrifices all the Venetucci family members have endured for 81 years for the education of future generations. They entrusted the PPF to carry on their traditions and desires regardless of any hardships that could develop.
The water issue sounds like an excuse for closing the farming operations. Many generations have benefited because of this pioneer family who gave so much to the Colorado Springs Community over 81 years.
Question: Can the Pike Peak Foundation terminate the farming operations if the Venetucci Farm was left in a Conversation Trust?

Re: “Air Force Academy has a distorted view of sexual assault says former employee

And now that the ROI has been released, she cant be reached for comment. How convenient.... Also, one cant actually be a SARC for 30 years since the position has only been in the military for 12. BTW SAPR was created in 2005 for all military branches.

Re: “Ex-officer says he witnessed order to notarize deputy oaths

One can only hope that CBI is really doing an investigation. If anyone can confirm that, I'd love to talk to the investigator. It would be an easy investigation at this point. And criminal charges would be inevitable. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

But there is a whole lot of names that need to go. From Bill "I lie alot" Elder to Joe "I love eyeing the girls" Breister to Larry "Do what I say!" Borland to Jackie "I'll do anything if it's in my own personal interest" Kirby to Rob "Hey, show me your t..." King to all of the rest of them at the rank of Commander and above.

Re: “UPDATE: Venetucci farmers laid off as contaminated water spoils finances

What is the excuse for Aspen Valley Ranch and Julie Snyder? AVR is fully self funded with cell towers and rental properties that PPCF has put up for sale. Why not have public forums about Venetucci and AVR rather than calling or emailing Sam Clark. Please give notice and time for the public who are interested to make arrangements to attend.

Re: “UPDATE: Venetucci farmers laid off as contaminated water spoils finances

The Pikes Peak Community Foundation's current leadership is looking CORRUPT as hell. I highly encourage local media to INVESTIGATE them immediately. And I highly encourage anyone looking to donate to them to look elsewhere.

Just a couple weeks ago, in Woodland Park, PPCF fired Aspen Valley Ranch manager Julie Jackson-Snyder. Jackson-Snyder is the very woman who donated Aspen Valley Ranch to PPCF in the first place, on behalf of her late father (Julie was the head of her father's "Gordon Jackson Foundation") basically telling her they understand her father's wishes for property better than her.

Translation: They're looking to sell.

And like they're now doing with Venetucci, PPCF has already begun the process of starving AVR by disposing of the very assets (rental properties and communications towers) that provide AVR it's recurring annual income.

Get on this, CSIndy staff, before these properties ... which PPCF promised to protect, and which are meant for community enrichment ... are sold off to the highest bidder with PPCF pocketing the cash.

Corrupt corrupt corrupt. Please look into this.

Re: “UPDATE: Venetucci farmers laid off as contaminated water spoils finances

The Pikes Peak Community Foundation's current leadership is looking corrupt as hell, and I encourage local press to launch a thorough investigation immediately. Up in Woodland Park, they recently fired Julie Jackson-Snyder, the very woman who donated Aspen Valley Ranch to PPCF on behalf of her late Father, Gordon Jackson (whose foundation Julie headed up) basically claiming that they knew better than Julie what her father's desires for the property were. Translation: They're looking to sell the property (and sell out the community), which is something Gordon Jackson NEVER would have wanted. Get on this, CS Indy staff ... before these properties, which were meant to be protected and their owner's legacies honored are gone forever to the highest bidders PPCF can find.

Re: “Reader: Don't be fooled by the BLR agreement

There is nothing Conservative about not paying your bills and a lot of supposed Conservatives have forgotten that. This situation should be a red flag warning of what the supposed Conservatives in Washington are doing currently.

Re: “UPDATE: Venetucci farmers laid off as contaminated water spoils finances

I would hope any of the donors or families considering leaving their properties in the "care" of Pikes Peak Community Foundation are paying attention to how PPCF Board is, to say the least, unethical. Look at Aspen Valley Ranch in Woodland Park. I would be interested in knowing who all makes these decisions, their names, their ties to developers, politicians, etc. It's always about money. Selling off Aspen Valley Ranch, which is self supporting, how can this foundation be trusted to manage the money? They obviously don't care about what Venetucci Farm means to the community. I would love to see this board held accountable for how they have spent the money they are responsible for.

Re: “UPDATE: Venetucci farmers laid off as contaminated water spoils finances

Of course PPCF laid them off two weeks before Christmas, I would expect nothing less from the deplorable degenerates that now make up the board of the Foundation.

This was never about "public safety" or the water.

It was only ever about the Foundation wanting to get rid of Venetucci Farm and destroy that legacy.

The entire local food and business economy was horribly negatively affected by this closing. That will be felt in our community for years to come. And that's not even talking about all of the small family businesses, programs and initiatives that were destroyed when the Foundation ended its fiscal sponsorship program.

The entire board and everyone even remotely involved in the community foundation should never allowed to influence a single other decision in this region, and the entire lot of them should be ashamed of themselves.

They are all horrid people who only have their own egos in mind, not the good of this community.

Re: “Ex-officer says he witnessed order to notarize deputy oaths

Larry Borland is a lying POS. Bill Elder is a lying POS. Both of them belong in jail (along with some others like Jackie Kirby).

Thank you Rick Dietz and thank you "Lt. Doe" for having the courage to step forward. Thank you Pam for this article.

As a friendly reminder ... KARMA's a bitXh!

I LOVE IT!!!
