Re: “CU regents OK funding for UCCS sports medicine center

So, when are the open space advocates going to say something about UCCS ruining one of the more beautiful pieces of property in Colorado Springs?

Re: “CU regents OK funding for UCCS sports medicine center

Health and wellness tourism is becoming a pretty significant market and destinations that have state of the art clinics and hospitals are benefiting from this revenue stream into their economy.

Health and wellness tourism includes travelling both nationally and internationally to destinations with facilities for the purpose of promoting health and well-being through physical, psychological, or spiritual activities.

Re: “City EPA lawsuit costs on the rise

RAISE THE DEVELOPERS IMPACT FEES ! Since the City Council and County Commissioners have been on the POCKETS of developers for over 50 years, developers impact fees are 70% LESS than the average of the front range cities. If someone with courage raised them to equal the other front range cities that would be an increase of $15k-$20k/residence. More than enough to pay for all stormwater issues (CAUSED BY DEVELOPMENT ONLY) and improve the roads to the better standard they used to adhere by. But you can bet Suthers will stay in the pockets of the developers and billionaires in town and screw the general population .... that's his pattern!!

This sure doesn't seem like a project the Regional TOURISM Act should have sponsored.

Re: “Sessions pinned on medical marijuana before slipping through Senate hearing

hopefully he will be as un-effective as our p***y grabber-in-chief. They can't get anything done and certainly aren't looking for any bipartisan help. They have been the party of no for so long they forgot how to govern. two thirds of the country already realizes the mistake we just made electing this uninformed unqualified egomaniacal bigoted kleptocrat.

We had the Professor and now we got Gilligan.

Re: “Racketeering case against Pueblo weed growers (partially) revived by federal court

They're going to find a major problem with the fiction that Amendment 64 cause a decline in real estate prices. According to the St. Louis Federal Reserve housing values in Pueblo have increased 22.445% between 12/31/2013 and 3/31/2017.

Re: “Baby's death highlights requirements, or lack thereof, for death investigations

"King is nagged by guilt and uncertainty. 'I feel bad,' King says, suppressing tears, 'because I made the decision to take him to the hospital. I have to live with that guilt.'"

Mr. King, I know your pain - many parents feel rue and regret after having taken their child to Children's.

I have written extensively on my blog about what happened to our family after things got botched at Children's Hospital/Memorial. I'm glad the King story has garnered media attention. The only way to ease the guilt and pain is for parents to tell their children's stories, and make their voices heard.

Re: “El Paso County Coroner's Office data points to troubling problems with drugs, suicide

It is customary to report these types of statistics on a per capita basis in order to be able to properly compare them over time and with other cities. Colorado Springs' population growth since 2007 has been enormous, thus you would expect the raw counts to be greater in 2016 as almost 75,000 additional people now live in the area.

SPYDRA1....

I agree with your comment 100%. We've been asking the same questions as well and gotten unanswered response. And yes.... Kudos to Pam for sharing our sons story.

Re: “Baby's death highlights requirements, or lack thereof, for death investigations

Interesting that this story ran in the same issue as "The 'teachers' in this lab are dead." (https://www.csindy.com/coloradosprings/the… 6/14/2017)

Think about the "teaching hospital" that is UCH/Children's Hospital: doctors-in-training, *practicing* on pediatric patients...and burying their mistakes. There are MANY questionable instances at this hospital, enough to fill a book; kudos to Pam for shining a light on this single chapter.

I'd like to know more about the gastrointestinal fundoplication procedure, and why it was deemed a reasonable approach to treating what was presenting itself as a type of breathing disorder/apnea.

I'd like to know more about the big pharma-funded clinical research studies occurring at UCH/Children's -- how many medical experimental procedures are being performed, and are parents truly giving their fully-informed consent?

I'd like to know more about UCH's $35M taxpayer-funded EPIC records system -- how's that workin' out for them? (https://www.uchealth.org/today/2016/08/30/…)

I'd like to know more about the obvious oversight gap and conflicted interest of the hospital performing its own autopsies, as mentioned in Pam's story and the one linked below.
(https://www.propublica.org/article/without…)

I'd like to know more about the hospital's relationship with the El Paso County Department of Human Services, and how they collude and canoodle to cover up and conceal medical errors by way of foisting unfounded allegations of medical neglect against parents with questions.

I'd like to know more.

Re: “Jared Polis announces gubernatorial run amid the oranges

Just another out-of-touch Denver/Boulder socialite. If you want the Governor of this state to represent ONLY the Denver/Boulder corridor then vote for this guy, as he is a carbon copy of the current office holder.

Isn't it about time that Pueblo or Manitou Springs nominate someone who represents the Democrats who think the Governor should represent EVERYONE in this state?

Re: “Pikes Peak Summit House Project delayed pending fundraising

This and the children's museum both have my support!
Not the "tourist" attraction sports medicine center, an unneeded stadium, and an AFA visitor center funded by the city.

Re: “Olympic Museum construction is underway

Not at all - since a major funder is also the owner of a local paper. Gag.
At least this museum I can sort of get behind.

Us paying for an AFA visitor center is not something I've ever been in favor of. Neither is the stadium. And I've always considered it a far stretch to characterize the university's sports medicine center as a tourist attraction.
