Re: “Caramillo’s Christmas light tradition lives on

My husband and moved out of our house on Caramillo a few years ago, after 20 years on the street. The lights tradition started in the early 2000s, after we had been to Hilton Head Island and seen how a street had gotten together and decorated. We had described it to then Caramillo residents the Carters, and they said, lets do it! In those early years, the lights went so high up in the trees, you could see it as you approached from a couple of blocks away!
Cookie Night was a great addition after a couple of years.
So glad it continues - cant lose any more trees!

Re: “Undercover officers take the stand to explain infiltration of local Socialists

There is no reason to send in undercovers. An undercover was also placed into the crowd of a rally. A rally where threats were made toward the groups and people organizing. That cop acted like a distributor in audience. He was there in his bicycle helmet to try to make the crowd take a hateful turn.

Hey CSPD the threats that come in toward groups and individuals planning protests didn't get investigated but you 'infiltrate' groups looking to march. Go stop the gang activity! I thanked officers for keeping us safe during a march and one silver haired officer reacted with such disgust in his face. Get rid of that angry officer. I bet the CSPD hasn't 'infiltrated' the Proud Boyz nazi 3% meetings.

Re: “Colorado Springs settles lawsuit with CSPD recruits

'"the city paid the eight recruits $150,000 for 18 weeks"
No wonder the City needed to pass a tax increase when over paying people.

Re: “Strawberry Fields appraisal needs fresh look, citizens say

I began asking that the City answer my questions about the appraisal that was submitted by the Broadmoor during the public comment process 20 months ago. I demand that the
City release the dollar figures in question for the needed repairs on the Barr Trail. See my posts on my Facebook page Cos Land Swap.

And Mikeb45 is why we can't have nice things. Not quite a native (missed the mark by two weeks) moved a lot after with an airforce family. Our strength is our differences our weakness is our hate.

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

PPFC is the worst organization I have ever seen. They don't care about the community, they only care about making money - - not a great mission for a not for profit organization. The CEO and others should all be fired, as they did to all the good people who used to work there and actually do care about the community. Please don't trust them with your money.

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

@JayWhynotaskme, they already know they are being watched. They don't care. They don't have to care. The BoCC supports them. The mainstream media turns a blind eye. The District Attorney is corrupt and refuses to do anything. All we can hope for is that CBI will really do something, but even that won't get rid of Elder. We are just going to have to vote someone else in who is competent and who will rid us of the filth that is running the Sheriff's Office.

Our Board of County Commissioners won't do a damn thing. Write them and ask them why they are allowing the Sheriff's office to police itself?
