Re: “Drake power plant shutdown costs estimated

This city is sitting poised for a very prosperous tomorrow if we could only stop thinking so small. This eyesore of a plant needs to stop blighting the downtown area ASAP.

Re: “Banning Lewis Ranch: $49 million in tax revenue over 30 years

How does this the BLR annexation agreement compare to other agreements developers have in place with the City? Fire Station 22 at Northgate was paid for by the developer. Is BLR completely off the hook from building fire stations now?

Re: “Banning Lewis Ranch: $49 million in tax revenue over 30 years

There's a reason why then-Mayor Robert Isaac got this set-up that way, and now folk want to tear that down for $$ (greed/control). Someday Colorado Springs will get out from under the Masonic/Real Estate control and have true states-people managing the municipal corporation that masquerades as governance here.

Re: “Sheriff Bill Elder calls Indy story "crap"

^^^This guy sounds an awful lot like Bill Huffor. Youve been unable to refute anything given by the previous commenters, it takes only common sense to see the issues with the whole notary debacle. I guess I shouldnt assign common sense as a quality everyone has as Holmes clearly shows. Either way, youre out with the rest next year anyway and you know it. Sleep on that internet warrior.

Re: “Stratton Open Space isn't like it used to be

There are better, far more natural and proven more effective ways to achieve fire mitigation. This job was heavy handed, excessive, and by Dennis Wills' own words ....."went a little too far".
The arguments made against controlled burns which I have personally been handed by parks personnel - forgive me please - don't hold water.

Re: “Reader: I apologize

Did anyone ask you to? I think you will find that at most three of those are things that anyone considers a personal failing.

Re: “Regional Building donations program takes some heat from City Council

I am disgusted with the way Richard Skorman has turned into a whore for developer interests. I wont be voting for him or going anywhere near Poor Richards again.

Re: “Reader: I apologize

The assumption of innocence applies only to a criminal matter. It could not possibly be the basis for an educated vote.

I apologize for pointing out how ignorant that non-thought is.

Re: “Poor people keep going to jail on non-jailable offenses. How do we break the cycle?

https://www.coloradosprings.gov/payticket

The number one fine homeless get is 9.6.110 Now I am fine with taking a small nap in the park but I don't want them to live there or set up camp. I want to go have a picnic with my family without being asked for change.. I don't like feeding the bears. Community Service is not slavery it is paying back your debt... and FYI they can do Community service at a soup kitchen which if your homeless you just might be at anyway. Talk about two birds one stone. I have seen first hand the judges waving everything for homeless. Did anyone see what we the tax payers pay for the homeless just about $1,000 per case. I Hope she at least took advantage of a hot shower and liked the three free meals a day while she was locked up.

Re: “Springs Police consider reviving photo enforcement against red light runners

The last time this program was in place, all of the news articles about it always discussed how much revenue was being generated, and none of them talked about any changes to public safety. Yeah, we know what's going on here. The recent "stormwater" ballot initiative will result in an increase in public safety spending. Here is just another avenue to get the rest of the money they wanted.

Re: “Springs Police consider reviving photo enforcement against red light runners

"There being no 1st-hand party to the actual infraction, there is no debt collectable. Check 15 USC 1692 et-seq and the FDCPA. The "red-light" camera cannot be "cross-examined" and cannot testify. " - gregaj7

Great, another barroom lawyer thinks he is qualified to give legal advice.
