Re: “Cog Railway tax break should get voter scrutiny, Manitou Springs residents say

The ordinance should never have been passed in the first place and its a bad deal for the citizens of Manitou. Council should recind it and save the court costs. An honorable Council would do that.
Just because a private corporation purposely neglects an asset, it should not be incumbent on the citizens of Manitou to pay for the rebuilding of the COG Railway. Thats like your neighbor purchasing a car, not maintaining said vehicle, then when the engine blows up, the tranmission falls out, and the tires are bald and flat, comes to you and says, Fix my car of course your answer would be NO!
Anschutz is the richest man in Colorado, worth $14B, and is the 12th or 13th largest landowner in the U.S. He doesn't need the citizens of Manitou Springs help. If he wants to keep the COG in his stable of toys, hed write the check and repair the railway. If he's not interested in doing that, then he should sell the asset or shut it down permanently. The people of Manitou will adjust to the revenue loss and will find other income streams. Courage.

Re: “To end gerrymandering, bipartisan group asks voters to approve reforms

Rank Choice Voting is next. That will raise the voter participation rate. Also, raise the number of candidates for each race.

Re: “UPDATE: Lamborn silent on Trump embrace of Putin

Doug Lamborns silence is consent of Trumps actions. Doug Lamborn needs to withdraw from the campaign because he's proven himself unfit to hold the elected position of Congressman.

Re: “Penrose-St. Francis Health Service rethinking $550 million hospital project

Would you build a $550M structure in a known slide area? Would you build a $550M structure including your parking lot with a one year warranty? Would you build a $550M structure in a slide area then find out your insurance company will not cover any damage caused by the movement of the earth? Southeast Colorado Springs needs a hospital.

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

The Los Angeles Times has a policy that if a letter to the editor is fact free or basically untrue, they will not publish it. Now if that same policy is applied to the Gazette and its opinion pages, it would have at least two additional full pages for advertising. Also, one must remember that Anschutz's unproven economic and political philosophy has not worked in the past nor will it work in the future.
