Re: “Reader: Manitou should care about the people who live here

The current administration seems to have forgotten WHY tourists come to Manitou Springs. It isn't for national chain shops, multi-storied parking lots, or corporate owned businesses. People flock to Manitou Springs for it's beauty, Pikes Peak cog railroad and Incline, dirty little stores, questionable food choices, and it's weird, wonderful, amazing festivals. No one cares if you can't park and have to walk a mile to get downtown, they still come every year! We need an administration who understands what Manitou is all about, not one who only sees dollar signs at the expense of the town itself.

Re: “Suthers criticizes mayors opposed to Trump's decision on climate accord

Really?! Is Suthers hoping to wrangle another appointment consideration from baby cheeto if he sucks up? Dumbass.

Re: “Reader: Defund public media, it'll be fine

Don McCullen and others do not seem to understand the VERY important role PBS plays in our WARN (Warning, Alert, and Response Network) . Ever notice that even without cable or an antenna, your television ALWAYS gets PBS? There is a reason for that. PBS provides an alternate path for WEA alerts to wireless carriers. The alerts are transmitted through the PBS satellite network on the AMC-21 satellite to PBS stations who broadcast the messages over their transmitters for reception by wireless carriers at their cell sites. For the Republicans out there, that means, that in the event of a NATIONAL emergency,PBS is responsible for sending that alert to our phones. Get off your ridiculous high horse, do a little research, and understand this.. 'Progressives' get it far better than you do, silly little man. Now run home, the grownups are trying to clean your mess.

Re: “Boxed Springs: a mattress debacle

CMR does more than just "properly dispose" of unwanted mattresses, they employ a segment of our population that most other businesses won't even look at. Giving these people gainful employment helps keep them out of trouble, it offers a boost to self confidence, it allows a dignity many in the system never get. It isn't just about where to recycle your mattresses, hit up the gofundme page and let's keep this business alive!

Re: “Flavors to savor

Roman Villa is so awesome! My first memory of being in the Springs is of dinner at Roman Villa.

Re: “Ay pobrecito!

Fantastic article! My brother and I are caucasian, but my mom has always coddled my brother. He and I are in our early 40s and mom still cooks, cleans, does his laundry!(we all live separately) His current gf is hispanic and my mother is over the moon about it, because, "Finally, a woman who knows how to care for my Son" We are not the exception either, I know a metric crap ton of grown ass men whose mothers do everything but wipe their hairy butts for them! It is beyond ridiculous.
