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.

Re: “Colorado Springs renames stormwater division

All of what has been noted is true-ish. But my problem is a citizenry which seems either cowed or - worse yet - disinterested in the obvious fact that Colorado Springs' voters are being regularly manipulated by fancy-pants rulers. Knowing for certain that stupidity is not the issue, one has to wonder just what is holding back an intelligent and fairly balanced citizenry from insisting that such manipulation is not to be tolerated.
With any luck, this will be made crystal clear in April. Although, to be frank, much damage could be done just between now and then.

Re: “Colorado Springs renames stormwater division

I am dumbfounded by how dumb the City thinks its citizens have become.

Re: “Colorado Springs Council votes 6-3 to ask voters for excess money

Councilor Tom Strand piped up saying, "I want to make it clear my motion is to ask the electors, not to tell them......"

I sure wish Mr. Strand had taken that position with his vote on the Broadmoor Land Swap.

Re: “The next chapter of Suthers' regulatory legacy

"If he has any bias, it's reasonable to assume that he prefers regulated order to the messy disarray of liberty."

No assuming about it. Liberty is the last thing on John Suther's mind.

Re: “Media to Trump: Game on

You are both saying the same thing - just that one of you is arriving at (what I see as) the truth coming from the east, and one coming to it from the west :)
I'm so tired of the word "transparency". But I don't find "truth" in it's lists of synonyms. If politicians won't provide it (transparency), then reporters must dig for it (truth). At it's best, the press must be tireless, fearless, as well as tiresome and fearsome until the truth is revealed. For these qualities, journalists will be both lauded and decried AT THE SAME TIME. As my dad used to say, "It all depends on whose ox is getting gored."
