Re: “Motif Jazz Cafe

Loved the food - truffle coated french fries, tempura fried bacon, tasty shrimps all with nice dipping sauces. The music was outstanding and the place was comfortable with an elegant, upscale vibe. Only complaint was the noise level in the room - lots of hard reflective surfaces and chatty youngsters.

Sorry to hear that. I used to enjoy stopping by the Island Grill.

Re: “2C sales tax revenues climb

I'll never vote for another roadwork tax again! We were told they'd be doing some long overdue street paving, but instead we get months-long or years-long road projects that inconvenience drivers, endanger bicyclists and pedestrians, and impact local businesses. Meanwhile, my local streets are still littered with potholes!

It sure appears that most of those projects are understaffed, probably what happens when you try to make up for years of neglect in one big push.

It also seems that there is zero coordination between projects so that there is often no reasonable detour available. Today I noticed a sign on Cimmaron that said, "Expect long delays." Not really helpful, more like telling us "we know we're going to cause you a lot of hassle and we just don't care!"

Re: “Unite Colorado backs unaffiliated candidate in House District 18

I'm skeptical that a well-funded independent organization will serve anyone's interests besides their own. It seems like a fairly blatant attempt to become the power brokers in a somewhat evenly divided electorate. Foster just sounds like another unqualified Republican trying to ride the wave of discontent and while avoiding the Trumpian association.

Re: “Lamborn votes 'yes' on GOP health care bill as constituents storm local office

There may be a small bit of satisfaction is seeing many of the Trump supporters get their just payback by losing their own health insurance, there is no satisfaction at all in the realization that nearly half of US voters chose a candidate who was willing to lead this fight against minorities, immigrants, women, the LGBTQ, the elderly, the poor and even the middle class. Whether you're a Bernie, Hillary, or Jill Stein supporter, the message is clear: once a candidate is chosen, we ALL need to get behind and support that person.

Re: “Sorry Dems, biased media, the Electoral College, and more

Rabbi Mel: I guess blessed are the peacemakers, but Trump's "I have great respect" is hard to take seriously after the last 5 years of disrespecting President Obama. It's just another lie, from someone who seems to be unable to tell the truth about anything at all.

Re: “UPDATE; City threatened with free speech lawsuit for Jesus ban

I find the Jesus ads on benches distasteful, another indicator that we are a backwards city, but I agree that it's within their rights to have them posted, just so long as we can also post "There is no God" signs right next to them.
