Re: “Jason Ricci & The Bad Kind

This would have been a fantastic show. I've been looking forward to seeing Jason Ricci and The Bad Kind for a very long time. Consumate musicians, honest and commited.
Unfortunately, despite a signed legal contract, Songbird Cellars broke that contract only a week before the scheduled event, leaving fans AND the band in the lurch. Musicians and fans deserve, at the very least, for venues to honor their commitments. Shabby treatment of working musicians does not speak well for a venue that claims to support live music and those who bring it. Please add a "Zero Stars" option for Reviews/Comments.

Re: “PILLAR Classes

I took many classes for two semesters in this institute.
Although I am a U.S. citizen, lived in U.S. 50 years, during which years I was a student and worked in California mostly at Hewlett-Packard and received my high education in this country; attended 1 year University of Colorado in Denver, rest of my education in California; retired and have been living in Colorado Springs,and have been a life-time student all my life, I was DISCRIMINATED BY THE GROUP.

I was constantly criticized that I was asking too many questions in the class and that I was late all the time and insisted sitting at the front of the class.

I was late no more than 2-3 times during the past 6 months which is no more than those also time to time were late to the class.

One morning I was 3 minutes late to the class the host would not allow me to enter the class. A few days after the incident a woman came 15 minutes late and had no problem entering the class.

Finally, two days ago, when I went by their office to pick up a file folder I had left in one of the class I was asked to step in to the office of the woman who was assistant to the director and again was told I was asking too many questions, late to the class, monopolizing the class and these complaints were being made by the hosts and the attendees of the class.

These claims are not true.
I was always uncomfortable with the reception of the hosts, and general very cold and unfriendly climate of the group except for the instructors who are outsanding and always thanked when they were asked questions.

During this meeting I was told, "in this country we do things differently, not like in your country, sit on your hands in the class"

As I had paid $500.00 for the semester and were really interested attending the class, always loved to learn, I apologized and left.

I came home and re-evaluated the hole experience with this institution and realized how tensed I used to feel to go to the class and be subject to the cold, unfriendly hosts and most of the attendees, I called and expressed that I belived I am being discrimated and unwelcome therefore I will not be attending to their classes. Her response "I am sorry it wokred iut that way". I asked if I could be reimbursed for the unused portion of the classes which amount to $420.00, the answer was "no".

I called my credit card company filed a dispute.

I lived in this country fifty years, I have never, not once felt discrimaated. I speak very good English, I do have accent and I am from Middle East and in these classes I definitely felt my presence made others uncomfortable.

I am sad

Re: “Amateur Radio Field Day

An amateur radio on-the-air event including more than 35,000 radio amateurs who gather and operate from various locations across the US and the world. The Pikes Peak Radio Amateur Association will be operating from their club station. Come out, see what the hobby is all about, and even get on the air!

Somehow the submission got mangled, probably to try to make it fit.

Re: “The Buzz

The Buzz is THE place to bee. James and Mia and their staff are always smiling, glad to see you, and doesn't act put out to wait on you. This is a,, big plus in my opinion, The place has a nice welcoming home bar, even if its your first time there. The musicians that come to jam here are top notch or will be in the near future and the Crowd is very supportive of the music. First jam I have every been to that the dance floor was full EVERY song during the night. If you like friendly bar staff, Great Music a

Re: “"Spring Cleanup for the Xeriscape​"

Jan Here: Maybe renters should learn and be allowed to fix-up their grounds. I think Indy should do an article on living in poverty all of your life.

The two of us females in our mid 60's need a safe home. We and our 10 pound dog needs a rent to own home, or a place you want off your hands, at $1,000.

We are in what I deem is a slum, the grands and landscape is bad. Cigarettes litter the 4 units complex, as does broken glass in a few areas. Cable does not run here. And we have a furnace installed by maintenance guys. rather then licensed HVAC People. Unfortunately we are not alone in our pediment, many older people and people of all ages, are like us.

We have paid our rent for close to 4 years It was $740 went we moved in, and $870 the rent has gone down in quality, but up in price. Some balconies are falling down onto the patios hitting humans and animals, or just missing them. The outside stairs are torn and can cause people to fall. The Landlord is not fast on some repair's, because he is busy gathering money, not spending it.

We want a 1,100 sq. feet to 1,500 on one floor, with 1 and 1/2 bathroom. a fenced in back yard, good roof, safe furnace, small repairs I can do myself. in the late 1980s I had a homeless Shelter back in Maine. Than I operating a national informational hotline in 1989-2012 before caring but limited resources of 211 started to give out information, not usually fitting the complete needs of the callers.

Our individual credit scores are so low, we cannot buy a small house. We cant rent a good apartment. Their are to many people in Colorado like us. Please do a story on people like us.

In COS we the poor of cash are about 1/2 or more of the population.
Its time Colorado Springs become the "City with a Heart." Its time landlord stop taking credit scores as showing the character of renters. Its time landlords relay upon their guts, and kind hearts to preform miracles for the bottom of the income population. 719.645.7746

Nice that the Indy highlighted a local music event on its Culture page. It should happen more often, a lot more often.
