Re: “Colorado health insurance premiums stabilize

Thanks for the great read. There are many people who cannot afford health care insurance but they need it. This becomes quite difficult for them to get all the medical facilities at the time of need. For such people, the private insurance company like The Health Exchange Agency ( https://www.thehealthexchangeagency.com/ ) who are Medicare-approved firm, provides health insurance at the lowest possible deal. With the help of such team, one can easily get the premium facilities too, at the time of need.

Re: “Beavers drive a wedge between Manitou Springs environmentalists, business owners

Beavers can cause a lot of damage through felling trees and building there dams. Contrary to what some think, their dams are not necessarily a beneficial thing -- in fact frequently are not. Many of the trees they cut down don't grow back very well and they can increase erosion and flooding, exactly the opposite of what many people claim.

Re: “Springs reaches traffic death record, local soldiers deployed to border, Williams faces ethics complaint, and more

The city hasn't doubled in size since 2017 or 2016, both of which had fewer traffic deaths than 2018. So regardless of how you rationalize things, the increase is alarming and still a record.

Re: “City slammed in EPA lawsuit ruling; could stormwater fees be increased?

At some point, the citizens have to blame themselves. Both the people who lived there before and voted down the stormwater tax back in 2009 and the newcomers who have moved into their idyllic new build home but didn't care that CS doesn't have their own water resources and must drain the rest of the state of their livelihood to live where they want. If you want to live somewhere that doesn't have either their own water resources or a good way to treat and move the discarded water downstream then you must pay - and pay out the nose! Good for the EPA and CDPHE for holding accountable the worst neighbor Southern Colorado - and the western slope - has ever had (CS). Couldn't happen to a bigger group of uncaring individuals!

Re: “Springs reaches traffic death record, local soldiers deployed to border, Williams faces ethics complaint, and more

Well, as the local TV station noted... this number of deaths was from 1986. So 30 +years later, this article is not taking into account that the city is now double in size. Double the size and same number of deaths. Obviously even 1 death is not great, and accuracy surrounding the 'alarm' of those numbers is also important. Clearly a lot has actually improved safety wise to essentially make 50% the death rate of the 80's.

Re: “Local troops deploy to southern border, small planning group to California fires

" Operation Faithful Patriot"

That would more correctly be Operation FAITHFUL PATRIOT, or OPERATION FAITHFUL PATRIOT, all caps. Military named operations are normally written in all caps.

"which the Pentagon switched to "border support mission" last week "

It was a support mission all along. Just as it was when Obama sent the military to the border.

"NorthCom's"

Again, that should be all caps, most correctly USNORTHCOM's or just NORTHCOM's.

"So far, no active duty aircraft have been dispatched to California"

The likely aircraft to be sent would be the MAFFS, however, no MAFFS units are active duty. One is a Reserve unit and the other three are Guard units. So even if all the MAFFS aircraft in the US were sent, it would still mean no active duty aircraft were sent.

Re: “City slammed in EPA lawsuit ruling; could stormwater fees be increased?

Fine the developers at least 50% of the fines- fine the city council members and anyone involved personally in the whole permitting process for those 3 developments-anyone whose department or personal signature appears on the docs- split the fine amongst all those clown car drivers equally with an extra chump slice for Suthers.

Re: “City slammed in EPA lawsuit ruling; could stormwater fees be increased?

Council already raised our water bill by an average of $6.48 on Tuesday, Nov 14th without any public input. This is just the BEGINNING of taxation without representation.

Re: “Beavers drive a wedge between Manitou Springs environmentalists, business owners

It seems like wrapping or sand-painting trees would have solved avoided this whole problem. You are so lucky to have Sherri on hand to help this situation. Beavers can make a huge difference to even urban landscapes if we are smart enough to let them.

Re: “County hires defense attorneys for malicious prosecution case

Normally one attorney could represent all of the defendants, given that they were all county employees at the time. Now, different attorneys for all of them. That's usually an indication one or more of them plan to point the finger at the other defendants, triggering separate representation. Ought to be fun!

Re: “County hires defense attorneys for malicious prosecution case

Good Lord! Lawsuits, payouts, legal fees this could very well be one of the underlying reasons the County asked the voters to extend 1A two years PRIOR to its original sunset date. All that money to cover their own corruption. Sad and pathetic! But, they won't ever be held accountable!

Re: “City slammed in EPA lawsuit ruling; could stormwater fees be increased?

@happyfew At some point, you have to place blame on the city taxpayers who keep electing these same buffoons into office, expecting better results. The city even acknowledged they were going to "bait and switch" on the stormwater tax money, but approved it anyhow. Oh well...

Re: “Lawsuit filed in Royal Gorge railway death

"On the day of her death, Leslie Cacy served as the conductor..."

The conductor on a train is the one person solely responsible for the operation of the train (not the engineer). As the conductor, she was responsible for not allowing the train to proceed if she knew there were safety violations. She obviously allowed it to proceed and that safety violation resulted in her death. Unfortunate, but I would place responsibility on her.

When the costs of stromwater projects exceeding $2200 a FOOT like it did with the
Platte Ave project City Council will have to hit the taxpayers wallet like an ATM.

Re: “City slammed in EPA lawsuit ruling; could stormwater fees be increased?

The stormwater fee should not be used to pay for penalties assessed for bad development decisions approved by the Planning Commission and City Council - the fee was passed by voters to pay for actual stormwater projects, meet compliance standards and maintenance on the system. They had best find a more equitable way to pay fines caused by poor planning decisions and start charging developers compliance fees instead of pitting one municipal service against another all at the ratepayers expense when they are in campaign mode for their own re-election.
