Re: “Bernie Herpin, cookie chairman

happyfew doesn't get it: I enjoy doing things my wife likes to do. We've been season ticket holders at the Colorado Springs Philharmonic for several years - not just since the election. And, I'm still a staunch supporters of all of our rights, including our right to keep and bear arms.

And, we don't "pass laws against crime". We pass laws that define crime.

Re: “Wanted: Tim Leigh

Since City Council is working to open the Incline to all and Tim Leigh is a Councilman, perhaps he was on a "fact finding mission" to evaluate the state of the Incline so he could make an informed decision on what it will take to ensure the Incline is safe to open! :-)

PS: I haven't been on the Incline since they took away the Mt. Manitou Scenic Incline Railway!

Re: “Thanks for sharing, Gazette

The list of salaries does not include elected officials. In case anyone is wondering, my "salary" is $6,250 per year or $3 per hour based on a 40-hour work week (I average about 30 hours per week on council and council-related meetings and events). Don't want the public thinking we are trying to hide elected officials' salaries!!

Re: “Utilities' budget-billing customers get surprise charge

This is FALSE. There is NO charge for using budget billing. CSU does include an 8% escalation in the estimated budget billing but when the account is reconciled at the end of the budget billing period, ALL money paid is compared to the ACTUAL usage and any excess paid is carried over to the next budget billing period. Any underpayment can either be paid or also carried over.

Again, there is NO charge to use budget billing!

Re: “Grin and bear it

RR, I know that humor is your forte, but the slam on Memorial is really inaccurate. MHS provides over $60 million per year in uncompensated health care. This is one of the main reasons I would never support selling MHS to a for-profit hospital system.

Re: “Maketa in a laugher

Terry, it would have been easy to step away from a stressful job with many challenges including shrinking budgets and increased demand for service. I am very pleased that you put your personal plans aside to answer the call, once again, of your constituents. The vote validates all the improvements you have made and the level of citizen satisfaction in your leadership. I am proud to be a supporter!
