Re: “Salida Arts Festival speaks to Salida's status as a solid artistic community

Last year's show was wonderful. Looking forward to this year's.

Re: “Raw Tools turns swords into plowshares

While the concept sounds nice, it is flawed. The types of people who are willing to give up their guns for this are not the types of people causing the problems out there with guns. Indeed, the problem isn't the guns, it is the people. In fact, there are over 37,000 people in El Paso County with concealed carry permits. To date, not one of them has been involved in an unjustified shooting. Those are numbers you just can't argue with.

Now, if we could just start bringing in criminals, and composting them for my garden, I think we'd be on to something!!!

Re: “Who Gives a Scrap diverts nearly 22 tons of arts & crafts supplies from the landfill

One of my favorite places to both donate and shop. As an artist, it's refreshing to find a place where I can find Little Treasures to use in my artwork. Everyone should check it out!

Re: “UPDATE: Tiny House Jamboree to leave Colorado Springs

Hi fellow readers!

I just wanted to let you all know about the following event. Three local builders were very disappointed that there was no longer going to be a festival in Colorado so they joined up to make this happen! I've copied the info below:

COME TO THE FIRST ANNUAL COLORADO TINY HOUSE FESTIVAL!!

Come see many unique tiny homes, tiny homes on wheels, yurt homes, shipping container homes, and other small unique structures! Hosted at the sprawling Wild Animal Sanctuary, NE Denver, brought to you by Einstyne Tiny Homes, Rocky Mountain Tiny Homes, and Trailer Made Custom Trailers.

Learn about going tiny, simplifying your life, minimalistic living, and living greener!
There will be vendors, speakers, entertainment, food, drink, and you can even decide to take a walk on the wild side and visit the Wild Animal Sanctuary to see the most incredible, majestic rescued wildlife in Colorado!

Part of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the Wild Animal Sanctuary

THIS IS A FAMILY FRIENDLY EVENT!

Children 12 & under are FREE!

Go to http://coloradotinyhousefestival.com/ for more info or to get your tickets!

Re: “UPDATE: Tiny House Jamboree to leave Colorado Springs

I cannot quite understand the suddenness of this. It would have been much more businesslike and appropriate to make such a change for Summer 2018. Something doesn't seem right about pulling the rug out from under plans people have already made, many months in advance. I booked air tickets several months ago as well as a room. I'm not happy about this. I'm surprised to see these Jamboree folks don't have better manners, planning abilities, etc.

Re: “TheatreWorks honors Kathleen Fox Collins

Kathleen has been to the arts what Pike's Peak has been to local scenery. We who have had the privilege of knowing her and working with her these last 40 years consider her a treasure and a delight.

Carrie Vaughn who won in the genre category and is in the turquoise blouse in the picture above is also from Colorado Springs. She graduated from high school at Lewis Palmer and lived here for a few years after college. She is now in the Boulder area.

Re: “UPDATE: Tiny House Jamboree to leave Colorado Springs

Not happy about this since we already bought non-refundable air tickets, non-refundable hotel. and took vacation time off. Why they couldn't have gone ahead with this years, and then made the big changes for next year. This is just to close to the event to cancel it and they sounded so gleeful about it. SUCKS!

Re: “Yellow Face brings social commentary and comedy to the CC stage

I have to wonder, would this resonate with the marginalized communities of Colorado Springs? Colorado College, by median student family income, is the wealthiest private college in the nation with $277,500 in median family income. Now go drive by Chelton and Fountain and then drive around the neighborhoods south and east of there. Would the residents there find this article relevant to their lives? Are the sons and daughters of those Japanese sent to Camp Amache going to Colorado College, or is it the sons and daughters of Chinese government officials and corporate leaders? I can't help but feel this is elites lecturing other elites, and reinforces the perception that Colorado College is a bubble that aspires to claim moral heights, but ignores the application of those ideas in our own community.

Re: “UPDATE: Tiny House Jamboree to leave Colorado Springs

Just glad we had not yet booked travel! However we had reserved the time off from two places of employment and that may be problematic.

Re: “UPDATE: Tiny House Jamboree to leave Colorado Springs

But Colorado Springs is a "World-Class City"! Certainly should be able to host an eco- friendly type event of this size with ease.

Re: “UPDATE: Tiny House Jamboree to leave Colorado Springs

I went the first Jamboree at the Museum of Mining and even then the crowds were large and the facilities inadequate. Altho it is on the West Coast, which would be inconvenient for some, there is a good facility with indoor and outdoor space plus public transit at the Irvine Great Park. They have hosted the Solar Decathlon (another great small living expo) which is moving to Denver at 61st and Pena Station this year. Since I haven't been to that Denver location I can't recommend it, but it is on the light rail which would alleviate the traffic and parking issues.

Not surprising in this city of 1830s sensibility.

Re: “UPDATE: Tiny House Jamboree to leave Colorado Springs

Did the Visitors Convention Bureau, City Economic Development Office, Regional Business Alliance or whatever their name of the week is try to work with you to keep your event in Colorado Springs?
