Re: “UPDATE: Strawberry Fields decision supports city land swap

This from the mayor:

"The only surprise was it that it ruled within a month."

Tsk, tsk Mr. Mayor. Did you not know, or did you prefer to exclude the fact that one of the three judges who heard the appeal is retiring from the bench this Monday, February 12th?

Re: “Strawberry Fields argument filed with appellate court

Thank you Pam Zubeck and the Independent for this timely update. The fight to save Strawberry Fields is far from over. As this case moves through the judicial system, its importance as precedent grows ever more clear. A win for Save Cheyenne will mean a step up for people who now have little voice when attempting to prevent the loss of public lands to privatization in their hometowns. From Indiana to California, Massachusetts to Georgia, the outcome of this case here in Colorado will have enormous ramifications across the country. Make no mistake, a loss will put publicly-owned parkland at much higher risk of commercialization - from sea to shining sea. Please consider a donation to the legal fund at

Re: “Reader: Strawberry Fields idea is criminal

To continue:)
....held in secret, to the deaf ears of six council members all the way through to the amazingly speedy execution of a conservation easement which is not in compliance with the resolution which the city council passed. There is a very good chance that the appeal which is presently being considered by the Colorado State Court of Appeals will succeed and Strawberry Fields will be returned to its rightful owners. This will be Justice in its finest hour - not only for the citizens of Colorado Springs, but also as precedent for people fighting privatization of public lands in every city and town across our nation.

Re: “Reader: Suthers' quote is a staggering piece of irony

If you are interested in the details of Save Cheyenne's appeal you can learn more. Just visit Save Cheyenne on Facebook and view the excellent video featuring Charles Norton explaining the case point by point. The video is compelling and the results of this appeal will unquestionably set precedent across the country and far into the future.

Re: “Beware the Gazette after blatant editorials, mistakes

Thank you Ralph Routon and the Independent. I have been following a blog being written and posted online by John Schroyer (former Gazette reporter) with great interest. But not knowing his background or circumstances beyond the blog, I've been cautious about giving one hundred percent credence to what I read there. Your description of the Clearing the Haze series matches his. I'm now convinced that we who are deeply concerned about Phil Anschutz's Gazette are all on the same page - that our suspicions are based on provable fact. I'd like to encourage anyone who is interested in the journalistic integrity of the news we here in Colorado Springs are receiving, to check out Mr. Schroyrer's blog. It's called "Phil's Gazette".

You can find it here:…

What's happening to our news in Colorado Springs is not just worrisome .... it's alarming.
