Re: “The post-Mueller report slog ahead

Oh my gosh! rightsavage, have you seen the actual Mueller report? My guess is no, so how do you know what the report states. If you're referring the 4 page semi-recap of the almost 400 page report that did say he was not exonerated,, then you're the fool.

Re: “Access to unredacted Amazon lease cost taxpayers $16,500

Mur, why? Are you opposed to positive growth? Are you opposed to roads finally being fixed? Are you opposed to Colorado Springs potentially being a hub for CyberSecurity? Are you opposed to the increase of passengers traveling to and from our airport? Are you opposed to young people wanting to live and work in Colorado Springs because there is more opportunity than ever before? Are you opposed to our robust sports ecosystem? Are you opposed to job additions within our police and fire departments?

Re: “Access to unredacted Amazon lease cost taxpayers $16,500

Gayle, government is only corrupt when those like Joel MIller, who thankfully is no longer part of City Council and did not succeed in his attempt to run for Mayor, are not able to initiate their excessive conservative agendas. Joel Miller is too narrow minded and pompous - not what our city needs. When Joel Miller was on City Council, our city was on the fast track to further decline and millennials were fleeing to other states as fast as possible. Now that he, the Mayor at that time, and several other useless council members are no longer part of the picture, our city is seeing growth and there are new reports stating more millennials are choosing to stay and work in our community. Construction projects are on the rise and I can honestly say that it's great to finally see cranes at some of the large projects..

I'm a native of Colorado Springs and appreciate the positive momentum our city is currently experiencing, especially the Olympic Museum and Hall of Fame. This museum will become an asset to our city and region.

Re: “Colorado Sports and Events Center stadium, arena to host Switchbacks, Colorado College hockey downtown

All of you, with the exception of Diane, should not be responding to this unless you've done your research and understand all the criteria associated with requesting Regional Tourism Tax dollars.

*All the projects do not need to go to vote unless local tax dollars are required.
*The Bill Hybl Sports Medicine and Performance Center (funded by RTD dollars) is at UCCS so I'm thinking having the event center at Colorado College is OK.
*The Mayor did not lie. He said he would not support any of the projects, specifically the downtown stadium and event center, if the funding needs to come from local tax dollars collected by the citizens. No taxes will be needed to fund these projects.
*The funding needs to be used on tourism related projects (not pot holes or road construction) and ground needs to be broken by December of this year or the city will lose that funding

gregaj7, what consequences. Please enlighten us.

Re: “Sky Sox could be renamed for edible testicles and you've got to be kidding us

These are the absolute worst names ever and completely embarrassing as well. Let's turn our minor league baseball team into a joke before they even start playing. Why not use a native animal or bird - bobcats, marmots, black bears, bobwhites, nighthawks, etc. Why didn't the Rocky Mountain Antelopes or the Colorado Springs Coyotes not make the list? Shoot, even the Colorado Springs Whooping Cranes is better. Sheesh!

Re: “Environmentalist Cameron Brown hauls a grand piano out to Garden of the Gods at sunrise

Shannon, there is no historical proof that Native Americans considered Garden of the Gods as sacred ground. I am also a native and the park needs to be protected on all levels. I'm sure there was no impact to have this guy play his piano in the Garden but who's to say you traipsing all over the park exploring caves and not staying on designated paths is not affecting the park's natural balance. There has to be park guidelines in place to protect this amazing gift to our city. Charles Elliott Perkins donated the park to the City of Colorado Springs so the public can enjoy this open space - not just for locals but tourists to our community as well.

Re: “Reader: Trump is president and you need to get over it

Trump is consumed by power and it makes no difference if he is conservative or liberal. He will make decisions on behalf of our country and it's citizens (the horror) to feed his ego and only his ego. He is not a good person, he does not represent our country's values and he has NEVER walked a mile in anyone's shoes but his own. He is the president but he is not my president and I am looking forward to 2020 when, hopefully, this nightmare and global embarrassment finally ends.
