Re: “Residents protest Broadmoor Seven Falls shuttles

Two things ...... first Philip Anschutz is 78, not 88.

Second, the only reason that the Broadmoor gets away with the outrageous liberties taken with both the law and the best interests of the citizens of Colorado Springs is because we have always let them. It time for that to change.

Re: “John Suthers reflects on first term as mayor, sets a new agenda and eyes a second term

Yup, three cheers for the mayor who uttered these immortal words, "I won't take anything to a vote if I don't have to." This in the face of a public which was clamoring by an overwhelming 8 to 2, to vote on the Broadmoor Land Exchange. I hope the mayor does stand for reelection. Because, even though the Indy seems to have forgotten, I can personally attest to the fact that the public has, by no means, forgotten Strawberry Fields.

Re: “The North Cheyenne CaƱon plan must respect public

It is up to us now, just as it was in the 1880's, to stand up and fight for our parks and open spaces. It was easy peasy to rally against the Big Blue Frame because it was right there in front of our astonished eyes. The insidious over-make-over of North Cheyenne Canyon Park will not be apparent until it is far far too late. I would ask that you to read over the master plan carefully, then go to the canyon, stand at its entrance just behind The Starsmore Nature Center - itself a testament to nature by the way it nestles so naturally beside the snow-fed creek and among the cottonwood and lichen-covered rocks. Now close your eyes and picture in your mind how it will look and feel with the recommended "improvements". I would tell you to do that indeed ... except that the aforementioned master plan has mysteriously disappeared from the city's website as of this writing. Please help Save Cheyenne rescue NCCP. You will find us out there with information and encouragement both in the south canyon and at the Ridgeway Trailhead of Stratton Open Space every weekend that we are able. History is repeating itself and you can be part of it!

Re: “Where should the city's beloved/loathed stadium go?

May the Colorado Springs Independent live long and prosper. Funny as it is, that graphic causes a tiny shudder. There's more than an infinitesimal grain of truth here. Now put the Rosemont Reservoir Water Treatment plant on the Mt. Cutler Mesa - exclusively supplying Strawberry Stadium and the Broadmoor Resort. Happy April Fool's Day.

Re: “Why won't the Gazette disclose its owner like it should?

Here! Here! It's about time that someone had the courage to call out all three entities .... the Broadmoor Hotel, The Gazette, and their billionaire owner Philip Anschutz. Thank you!
And speaking of Strawberry Fields, imagine if you will how difficult it is to dispute the actions of someone when that someone also owns and controls the content of, as you put it, the monopoly daily. Small wonder that most of the people in Colorado Springs are convinced that the battle for Strawberry Fields is over, when in fact - it is most definitely not.

Re: “Reader: Try being fair and honest

What Kyle said. To have a reporter of Ms. Zubeck's caliber here is beyond good fortune. And given the current ownership of the Gazette, the Independent is crucial to the critical balance of public information in Colorado Springs.
