Re: “Thin Air Theatre Company says farewell to the Butte Theater with its final production: Angel of the Christmas Mine

Not quite sure why Chris Armbrister is credited for starting professional theater in Cripple Creek when it has been a part of the town for 75 years. TATC is the group that has been there the most recent. He has never been a full time resident of Cripple Creek. For him to claim that TATC does not receive funding is completely false. This matter has everything to do with funding and the Board seeing that money being given to TATC was not being spent as claimed.

Re: “El Pueblo History Museum’s Indigenous Film Festival explores themes of borderlands

Mau Piailug practiced Satawalese (Micronesian) navigation. Not Polynesian navigation. He taught these techniques to the Polynesian Voyaging Society, but they are not Polynesian techniques.

Re: “Colorado Springs Creative Collective moving forward with Artspace development

I wonder if this will create similar patterns of growth as the RiNo District in Denver had? Rent hikes in surroundings areas...Displacement of homeless folx in the community there....
What is low income housing in other areas? Is it typically below $500/month?

I'm a low income artist-I love the idea of community space and working space in our city, how amazing!
Let us do this right. Let us move forward in the Colorado Springs way, not the Denver or New York or Chicago way!
New developments are, in fact, a form of gentrification it is difficult to avoid that. It is a demon to tackle when growing our city.
How are we going to address this?

Re: “Colorado Classic cycling race starts in the Springs, attracts world-class cyclists

It is just a little annoying to always have the life and routine of the neighborhood disrupted by street closures and detours, I know many Old Colorado City businesses had to close or did very little business during this event, Colorado Avenue is a main business area through the Westside. How much of this cycling event will benefit anything that needs repairs or improvements for the neighborhood expected to take it on the chin for the good of the "community?" Just wonder who benefited the most from this interference in normal residents lives. There was traffic backed up along Pikes Peak and it is dangerous because the drivers are frustrated with the delays. I struggled to get back to the safety of my own driveway only to find a postcard in my mail announcing there will be again be road closures on August 20th for yet another event. Territory Days is disruptive enough and now every time I turn around Pikes Peak looks like a parking lot. From my point of view it isn't worth the impacts.

Re: “Colorado Classic cycling race starts in the Springs, attracts world-class cyclists

I'm all for events that benefit the city, but it is NOT OK to isolate an entire neighborhood (Pleasant Valley) for an entire day. I tried to get to my house a full 20 minutes before the first race started and was told by the police there was no way. I'm with Melanie, this needs to be shut down until a much less disruptive route can be found. I am no longer a friend of Colorado Classic.

Re: “Colorado Classic cycling race starts in the Springs, attracts world-class cyclists

Based on photos published by the Gazette, spectator attendance looks meager to me. Is this event really worth the disruption it has caused?

Re: “Colorado Classic cycling race starts in the Springs, attracts world-class cyclists

I can't be the only resident who believes that a bike race shouldn't close down an entire downtown. I'd like to work with whoever is interested to make sure that this never happens again. I would consider changing my opinion if someone showed me how this event benefited the city more than hurt it.

Re: “Colorado Classic cycling race starts in the Springs, attracts world-class cyclists

I think cyclists rather than bikers is a more appropriate term. My husband is a biker but I don't think they'll let him ride his Harley in the bike lanes. ;-)

Re: “Six ways art and music lovers, young scientists and connoisseurs of wine and beer should spend this weekend

The Space Foundation event sounds like a winner. It is incredible to think that humankind has been able to develop and land a device on Mars. Curiosity is the size of a small car (mini cooper) and has spent five years gathering samples for study. What an amazing time to be alive with so much advancement. Our ancestors would marvel at the world we live in today.

Re: “Colorado Springs Creative Collective releases preliminary results of ArtSpace survey

Hmm, the most affordable spaces in town are on Academy south of Austin Bluffs, and Fountain/Security, not downtown or Old Colorado City. This could be a problem. If they can find a way to be hip in those areas, hats off to them. But it's not really about art, is it.
