Re: “New homeless camp is a first in self-governance

There are a bunch of tents set up along the Midland Trail, just past Chestnut Street, that are a bit scary to ride by. I was waiting to either be jumped or run over a hypodermic needle - that's just the impression given by the disarray of this "camping" site. The camp that was mowed down along the creek just before America the Beautiful Park still has a ton of trash and clothing/sleeping bags strewn about. I've always thought the HOT guys did a good job, but the slant of this story makes me think differently.

Re: “Trial set for "Sit/Lie" protesters

So, evidently this law is no longer being enforced? Recently, we were cycling along Cascade, past the downtown library, and I noticed several people lying on the sidewalk in front of the library.

Re: “Residents make do — but don't make peace — with their contaminated water

Maybe I'm just stupid, but why can't these homes be provided with filters on their faucets, instead of contributing to landfill waste with all the empty plastic bottles?

Re: “Eye in the sky?

Um, wouldn't it require staff to maintain and fly? Staff that would be paid a "life-long pension"???

Re: “A place in the sun

So great that Mayor Bach is encouraging new companies and young talent in the Springs - NOT!!

Re: “We've got your beach

A lot of kids play in the creek on the other side of the bridge leading into the park - heck, we played in creeks and drainage ditches as children, and we survived!

Re: “Avery Brewing Co., Three Delights and Special Grounds Coffee

I started visiting Special Grounds because it's close to my house. Used it as a meeting place for my hiking group, and they were all thrilled with the warm welcome and personal attention- one woman declared she would never set foot in a Starbuck's again!
