As a bisexual, I'm actually on the cities side. We can have our pride with out breaking the law!

Re: “Knob Hill Urban Arts District sends Pride Month message, city responds

As usual this city run by Republicans and Focus on the family just can't leave something so beautiful and loving alone for people to enjoy for all the people of this city!
We have the Gay Rainbow on the state Capital now for the month of Gay Pride but to let one person draw the Gay Rainbow on a crosswalk and they could not spray paint over it fast enough!
I wonder if it was just a regular rainbow covering the potholes over this crosswalk,if they would have been in such a dam hurry to spray paint over it so dam fast?

Re: “Knob Hill Urban Arts District sends Pride Month message, city responds

"And for them to pay attention to us and what we're doing we haven't gotten nothing back from them."

Speaking correctly isn't really that difficult.

"Paes and Muji, along with fellow artist Pikaso210, spent the night of June 24 dodging traffic la Frogger at the intersection of Platte Avenue and Platte Place"

IOW, they are m0r0ns trying to win a Darwin Award.

"Muji says, We did this for free, we brightened this place up for free, and the city is charging us [taxpayers] to make it white again."

You did it illegally, dangerously, and idi0tically and you cost the tax payers money to fix what you vandalized.

"But their message has still been sent, loud and clear:"

Yes, the message that they are not very bright and think they can do whatever they want.

Would've been nice if the city at some point just said they thought it was a cool idea, "but... reflectivity."

"...for them to pay attention to us and what we're doing we haven't gotten nothing back from them."

Two things:
1. Way to double negative
2. "Equal rights" means you DON'T get paid attention to. You get to marry, pay taxes, and live a quiet freaking life like the rest. You do NOT have the right to go above any laws or change public streets and traffic signals. You don't see neo-nazis running around changing crosswalks to red, white, and black to get people to "pay attention" to them. Funny how special interest groups can see how others are wrong but never themselves...

Re: “Beloved Manitou Springs painter Charles Rockey dies at 87

I shall always remember him as a loving man, who loved Van Gogh and gave us his unique quality of the Middle Earth drawings and his landscapes. I had the opportunity, on one occasion to visit his paintings upstairs with my sister. His work was so prolific and touched my heart, just as he did to so many of us who followed his artistic work. RIP, dear man. Sharon Stephens 6 22 19.

Re: “Falling Starrs

When I was a boy, I would ride 2-3 times/week and just watch Mr. Starr work on the sculptures. He was so prolific with the English language. After years of watching him put these pieces together from scrap stuff, his wife invited me in with Mr. Kempf for a glass of lemonade. His wife was Swedish, or so he told me and that I should marry a good Swedish woman. He then took me into the gallery above the garage where he showed me the most beautiful bronze works. I find it so hard to believe he could take his own life....I just found out and it truly saddens me.....I still have a picture of him working on one of the pieces as well as some of his bronze works.

Re: “Beloved Manitou Springs painter Charles Rockey dies at 87

Dear Rocky, for 32 years as I walked from my home at 2 Grand Ave on a stroll thru downtown Manitou the highlight was always seeing you and sharing just a quick Hello or just seeing you at your desk working away and feeling that sense that the world was going to be okay as long as you were there. We are all sad to hear of your passing and the last time we spoke you were so excited to be writing about love and how thats the only thing that matters. Thank you dear Rocky, your art and your message will never be forgotten. Ken Long

I was fortunate enough to be taught by him at North Jr High school. He made a huge impact on my love of art. Thank you, dear Mr. Rocky!
