Re: “Reader: Did we forget what a disaster is?

Ask the City and the USFS if the first stage of repairs conducted on the Incline are already failing, meaning that ties that were reset in soil that has not been properly compacted are already coming loose again. Ask them if the required safety standards for the Special Use Permit demand that no ties move at all. Ask them if these issues were disclosed in the grant applications from FEMA and HUD. They will lie to you. Once the underlying bed of the Incline started to loosen, the only way to repair it is to tear it out completely and start over. Has our City committed grant fraud? Close the Incline once and for all.

Re: “Reader: Poop, graffiti and noise is the Barr Trail norm

Yes and thank you for asking, Close the Incline once and for all. The process that legalized it was flawed. It is not ecologically sustainable, etc. Check out my Facebook page titled COS Land Swap and you will understand.

Re: “Local letters on the Gazette defend Richard Skorman, urge voters to cast ballots

I could not agree more that Mr. Skorman is being defamed over his opposition to the land swap, but I must complain about Jill Gaelber not acting on the facts to get the Land Swap overturned, see Facebook page COS Land Swap. The public is being lied to about the Swap and its appraisal and members of Council may not remain silent.

Re: “Resident suggests plot be labeled 'Suthers Park'

I am calling on John Suthers to admit publicly that he was mistaken when he repeatedly claimed that the land swap was good for the community. Why has the Mayor refused to respond to yet another email that I sent to his office just this week? The City cannot accept the appraisal that the Broadmoor submitted for that deal. You can see my most recent email that the Mayor has ignored at the Facebook page I manage COS Land Swap. The questions and facts in that email are legal questions and cannot be ignored by the City.

Re: “Save Cheyenne loses bid for ballot measure on Strawberry Fields

This whole land swap nightmare has to be fixed. The City has conducted a flawed public comment process, and withheld all kinds of important facts in the matter from the public. The good news is that the truth has a way of never dying. The City is not a sovereign entity, and cannot just do as it pleases. My personal demands for the City to disclose all information about the land swap and the Incline will never go away. Unless the City becomes honest and accountable in this matter, they will bring unwanted legal problems upon themselves. John Suthers led us to believe that as a former prosecutor he would clean up the culture that had developed in our City government, he is making a big mistake in doing the opposite. I manage a Facebook page named COS Land Swap that discusses the problems I am referring to.
