Re: “Smooth-talking Texan leaves nonprofit workers, officials scratching their heads

Ah, this is one of those deals where for $100,000 you get a cubic yard of gravel, and a road grader going in circles for a day; maybe a few orange painted stakes, and an unoccupied 30' trailer on site.
Amazing optics; makes for a great 'gimme more money' picture.....

And then nothing for the next two years; at which point the then scraped of all trees, shrubs, grasslands, and any other natural habitat gets auctioned off for cheap; and then paved.

yeah, right on. +++ points for all the people that can't outright say this guy is shady shady shady out of professional "courtesy".

Dude, go back to Texas or wherever the heck you came from; and don't be back here again.

Re: “Ignoring the people‚Äôs voice

A million dollar a month electrical bill; for BitCoin production ... that is a lot of heat and fuel being used to make a what; a digital currency?

Our new 'growth' is a little embarrassing at times. "City of Champions". What are we "Championing" here lately?

Creek side gas station in Ivy Wild, massive parking variance waivers, parking meter increases (oh yeah, that will fix the budget. #fail), 20% rent increases, unimaginable volumes of trash along our creeks, muggings in the parks, 10% property tax increases,
Million dollar tax breaks for new businesses to move here?

Is the rapid boom of new growth worth the disposal of the previous businesses and citizens that built our city?

Re: “Three downtown parks slated for design makeover

Charity is a wonderful thing.

Charity without outreach is not helping anybody.
Marion House should be helping to keep Acacia, and Antlers reasonably clean.
The Springs Rescue Mission should be helping to keep Dorchester reasonably clean.

Instead; these parks have had all the picnic tables removed in a bizarre attempt to prevent 'homeless' from gathering and trashing the place.

The trash that is blowing around Dorchester on a daily basis is a shame to the city. Providing sustenance and provisions to people that won't even clean the area around where they 'live' is a near Biblical disgrace of what a tithe and a gift is supposed to accomplish.

Bancroft had tables; now gone. Soon; the 'redesign' will do away with the covered shelter in a rather lame attempt to discourage teh 'homeless' from gathering.

So much charity; so little outreach. At some point in time; it has to be more than a tax write-off; or an easement of success guilt. The enormous sums of monies seem to be doing little more than to provide for more food, and more clothes and blankets that are left strewn around downtown and creek side.

Charity without outreach is making the city a blowing trash dump.

Re: “The Springs Echo newspaper returns

Including a Hefty bag with each copy would be a boon to many attitudes towards the 'homeless' population.

Re: “Springs City Council eyes incentives for engineering and defense contractor

Big business gets a boost; residents get the tax increases, and the streets get pounded to crumble by the heavy construction equipment and traffic.
Not how many want to see their once conservative, and economically viable to retire in city 'grow'.

Re: “Marian House clears the air

It is really nice that SRM and MH are feeding so many people so much fish.

Are they teaching anybody to fish? I keep seeing more, and more, and more lines litter trash and people and trash around the SRM and MH every year if not every month now.

Any chance the places can actually outreach to clean up some of the debris field the fish feed folk are leaving every where? Dorchester Park area would be a good place to start.
