Re: “Reader: Where does the Springs fall on the tolerance spectrum?

Mike, you are quick to call someone out on what you perceive to be intolerance but you spew "Liberals have no morals values or common sense." and "Democrats will never win another election due to their intolerance of conservative viewpoints. " Hmmmm....pretty much the pot calling the kettle black.

Note to Spydra: You're a hack; do yourself a favor and do a little research before you post. At the very least substantiate your claims.

Re: “Reader: Citizens should question bike race expenses

The event actually received LART monies to help offset some of the event costs such as police, barricades, etc. LART is tax collected from those staying in hotels and renting cars so pretty much paid for by tourists.

Re: “Colorado Classic cycling race starts in the Springs, attracts world-class cyclists

I think cyclists rather than bikers is a more appropriate term. My husband is a biker but I don't think they'll let him ride his Harley in the bike lanes. ;-)

Re: “Whirlyball to bring recreation, craft beer to central Springs

Speak for yourself! I think it's time for LivesLocally to live elsewhere.

Matt, I'm excited for this place too and I was also at the soft opening. Super fun! And it's taking over a space that's been empty way too long. Very cool!

Re: “CU regents OK funding for UCCS sports medicine center

Medical tourism is not something a destination or a medical institution can absolutely count on like other markets that coordinate conferences. For example, you have a spine issue that your local physician or hospital is not equipped to help you so you travel to the Scoliosis & Spine Center in Salt Lake City to get the best care. Your surgery is specialized and you will be confined to the hospital for several weeks followed up by extensive rehab. Your family travels with you to give support and they need to stay at a nearby hotel. That is medical tourism. If people have the money and can afford medical treatment at these specialized facilities, why is that repugnant? What's repugnant is our government, Veterans Affairs primarily, does not invest the necessary resources (money, people, equipment, etc.) to ensure Veterans get the best care. Completely separate.

Re: “CU regents OK funding for UCCS sports medicine center

Health and wellness tourism is becoming a pretty significant market and destinations that have state of the art clinics and hospitals are benefiting from this revenue stream into their economy.

Health and wellness tourism includes travelling both nationally and internationally to destinations with facilities for the purpose of promoting health and well-being through physical, psychological, or spiritual activities.
