Re: “Radical resistance to Trump in Jackson, Mississippi

Trump Tracker track down and supply us all the info you have that would classify Trump as a "noted racist". Or are you just abusing your job as a word speller and making things up?
So while you were in Jackson Mississippi (you were there right?) you make no mention the elementary school name change. That I suppose would make you a racist. Also no mention of May 1970 either. Clearly an omission by a racist. You are now a "noted racist", you sure are not a journalist as a journalist does not display bias.
1970 has largely been forgotten and no doubt because the shooters were local and state police and victims were black college students and black bystanders, the evidence picked up and hidden before medical was allowed to enter and give aid.. No mention of it even though Kent State killings by National Guardsmen of white students occurred only 11 days earlier. Did nobody write a song about Jackson Mississippi as was done for Kent State?
Please explain Mister Racist racist tracker hack how can you make assumptions and report that but history and actual events evade you. Promoting a Civil Rights Museum would indicate beyond doubt that you do understand or will not reveal that you do indeed know that Civil Rights Act and all the programs that followed, orchestrated by leftist liberals such as yourself, has done far more damage to Black communities in last several decades than the 150 years of slavery ever did. As you point your finger at someone the other 3 are pointing back at you. You will not inform or educate your sorry readers with this piece of tripe article but continue the tradition of keeping the Black man down in the swamp of victim-hood, tearing apart their families by offering handouts with strings attached subtly inciting anger in yet another generation that knows no other way of life thanks to the aforementioned myriad of "aide" It is you not Trump that is a full-on racist and if you did not know it you do now.

Re: “UPDATE: Sheriff's Office blocks reporter, Indy responds via attorney

Comments here sound like the reporter has exhibited heroism and bravery above and beyond the call of duty, uncovered the story of the century and saved 1000 children from 5000 mass shooters and made a citizens arrest of the 5000 shooters using only a bobby pin! Pulitzer Prize time. Imagine forcing Maketa to resign at the same time his term was up and uncovering the foul deeds...and charging him with... what did you call it? Oh yeah "messy scandals". I think.
Force this sheriff out too when his term expires but first take back all the nice things you were saying about hm during the "messy scandals" era...

His ex-wife called the state(co) and asked how she could vote while out of the state. They looked her up and discovered she had already cast her ballot, which she refuted.

Re: “Framing the Garden of the Gods

Not sure that the frame isnt a not-so-subtle revelation of how we perceive nature, how we've relegated nature to no more than a pretty picture or a source of revenue.
Then again, the ambiguity of this frame somehow provokes thoughts beyond its existential our views are constrained, managed by others, encouraged to disregard the big picture that can be seen simply by stepping back, or around.
It would be interesting to watch how individuals spontaneously respond upon encountering its unexpected presence, and what those responses could tell us about us.
After all, if the purpose of art is to stimulate a reaction, then, as we see, this is a pretty successful "work of art".
That said, I havent found any indication that any aesthetic considerations were put into the frame, or it's placement. Just as in nature, however, some art is unintentional.
I am reluctant to condemn such. I think I'll visit the FAC and look at some frames.

Re: “Framing the Garden of the Gods

There needs to be accountability for those who broke the rules and allowed this. That is the problem with government these days - do what you want, to heck with what the tax paying citizens want or their rights. This kind of behavior is not ethical, it is not sustainable, and it should never be acceptable. We need to demand accountability and responsibility NOW.

Re: “Framing the Garden of the Gods

The Garden of the Gods park was founded with this intent: known forever as the Garden of the Gods "where it shall remain free to the public, where no intoxicating liquors shall be manufactured, sold, or dispensed, where no building or structure shall be erected except those necessary to properly care for, protect, and maintain the area as a public park." This should never have been allowed to proceed. It is detracting from the natural beauty of the park and destroys a beautiful view all in the name of the commercialism of our city. No task force or group should be allowed to deface public lands. Additionally, it has been said it will be reviewed in 2018. Why do we have to keep "undoing" projects leaders in this city think are best for the citizens? This needs to be removed immediately and recalls started for anyone in leadership who allowed this. At this rate, we should simply brand our city nepotism crony springs.

Re: “Framing the Garden of the Gods

Do you feel:

This art/sculpture frame adds to the beauty of the park and should remain, or

Detracts from the beauty of the park and should be taken down?…

Re: “Framing the Garden of the Gods

While the G, being a daily, broke this story earlier (I believe?), the INDY (as always) is doing the heavy lifting to keep this on the front burner. Kudos also to Jill Gaebler who had the tact to nicely request the removal and the guts to suggest what the citizens were liable to do if not heard.

A shameless commodification of a national natural treasure. A boneheaded mistake in all respects.

Re: “Framing the Garden of the Gods

This is tacky and doesn't belong inside the park. Maybe if they wanted to put it in the parking lot it would be less of an eyesore. The beauty of Garden of the Gods is in the natural glory of the scenery. This looks like something you would expect to find on the old boardwalk in Atlantic City NOT in one of our cities most popular tourist attractions.

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

Id be interested in what Hannigan has to say about all this.

It shouldnt be a surprise that the same person making decisions on the PPCF board came up with the idea for that hideous blue picture frame at Garden of the Gods thats getting such great reviews.
