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: “Iconic sites are closing due to irresponsible social media users, and Veterans Day free park access

I almost exclusively shoot film for this reason when hiking or looking for new places and I don't use a cell phone for pictures on my trips. Great article.

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.

Re: “Reader: We need safer streets

The Prophet Margin ,
A vehicle gets a green light in the same direction as a pedestrian's light, not across the ped's path. Peds get a green light only after the protected left turn phase has finished. If a ped is going across the oncoming vehicle traffic, then the ped is demonstrating example #2. So the only vehicles that should have a conflict with peds in designated crossing areas are drivers making unprotected lefts or drivers making rights. Also, the items I listed as #B and #C address your concerns. The cameras that you see at most intersections are basically just sensors and they do not normally record anything and are not normally monitored or even able to be monitored.

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.
