Re: “Spring's downtown bicycle infrastructure progresses despite growing pains

Feels like the majority residents do not matter and only very small interest group does. Not at all happy with the changes dowtown.. Just more traffic issues and less ability to get to shops.

The ACLU is going to get paid again by the taxpayers of El Paso County.

Re: “Sheriff Elder lashes out at Indy reporter

This is nothing. The only crime would have been committed by the notary.

Re: “Sheriff Elder lashes out at Indy reporter

Whats that Holmes? You claim you dont work at EPSO, and are not connected to the sheriff, yet you make a comment like that. Hmmm...just blew your cover, genius.

Re: “Sheriff Elder lashes out at Indy reporter

Bwaahaaa, Holems you crack me up...... your either an Elder crony or your someone who thinks the the earth is flat. I know that you keep saying that the docs dont have to be notarized, but no one is distracted from the fact that Elder and/or his command staff ordered those two to notarize documents more than one year later ( which happens to be illegal and therefore a crime), But dont worry your pretty little head..... the truth is coming out and neither you or i will have to prove it. Word on the street is that it is being looked into behind the scene. And in the famous words of Jim Carrey (in the movie Liar Liar) And the truth will set you free :)

Re: “Sheriff Elder lashes out at Indy reporter

People go off and do a lot of crazy things. You'd have to ask them. But it's true, they do not need to be notarized. Check with the CSPD, same with them. Your burden of proof is on Elder's wrongdoing. Good luck with that!

Re: “Sheriff's Office asks for crime footage

@Mike Randall - that's a great idea!

One would believe we have a right - it's a taxpayer owned building and they are government workers - their paychecks are funded by the taxpayer! It's our right! That would be some true transparency! And, didn't Elder say he was all about transparency?

And Pam, come on ... where is the KRW report?

Re: “Sheriff's Office asks for crime footage

I would like to ask the Sheriff's Office to start making video available to us of the shady deals that go on behind closed doors on their 5th floor and elsewhere.

Re: “El Paso County jail is home to people too poor to pay fines or make bail

This is terrible!!!

People should retaliate against the Sheriff's Office by not breaking the law and thus depriving the jail of any inmates. That'd teach them a lesson!!!

Re: “Spring's downtown bicycle infrastructure progresses despite growing pains

I think these bike friendly changes need to thought out better - our roads are already hazardous and driving is often a dangerous activity on streets seriously over crowded and drivers who have zero patience for anyone in their path vehicles, pedestrians or cyclists.

Where are the studies from the motorized point of view? Overnight people who parked on the street have their parking taken away and drivers are forced into traffic delays and congestion all so empty bike lanes can be kept available at all times.

Perhaps it would be in the public safety interest to consider adjusting sidewalks to allow for the bicycle traffic? Maybe we just dig up all the parkways trees and grass and turn them into bike paths - it makes about as much sense as what is being done to high traffic roadways for the sake of an alternative method of transportation.

And one might also question why if cars are suppose to be abandoned there is not a more aggressive attempt at improving public transportation options in this community?

Re: “Sheriff Elder lashes out at Indy reporter

You prove your theory. What would be their motive? If they arent required to be notarized, why would they have fraudulently notarized them? Unless they were instructed to do so. Please explain.

Re: “Sheriff Elder lashes out at Indy reporter

Holmes, youre avoiding the real issue. Do you really think those 2 employees took it upon themselves to illegally notarize hundreds of affidavits?

Re: “Sheriff Elder lashes out at Indy reporter

Again, no evidence! Please provide more than just worthless opinions! And arguing over affidavits that didn't require a notary in the first place is a waste of time!! :)

Re: “Spring's downtown bicycle infrastructure progresses despite growing pains

I also work on Weber Street, and while I can confirm that there are still a few issues, they have been improving significantly as individuals have been getting used to the new configuration. I am extremely supportive of the work being undertaken by the City, Downtown Partnership, and associated groups to continue to look to the future and build an infrastructure that works for everybody.

While the roll-out of the Weber Street reconfiguration had some bumps, I appreciate the willingness to learn lessons from these imperfect roll-outs, and will look forward to continued connectivity for employees, customers, tourists, and residents.

Re: “Sheriff Elder lashes out at Indy reporter

Lol Mr. Randall,
This @Holmes guy has such a crush on Elder that if there was video of Elder committing armed robbery, he would somehow find away to ignore all the evidence and say it was fake news. (As evident in his responses to all the comments on Pams previous article on Elder). Anyway, keep up the great work Pam on exposing all the corruption! Myself and everyone I know, look forward to all your future articles regarding Elder.

Re: “Colorado Springs faces chore of setting up billing mechanisms for its new drainage fee

Any reason as to why the city is going to pay Utilities $1.8 million one time fee? And how about the $200,000 annually after that? Does that cover the city's assets, besides the $100,000 it has scheduled to pay?
