Re: “City regulations on fire pits haven't triggered citations in recent years

Pam, as always, I greatly appreciate what you do for our community as an investigative journalist. Although the fire issue is my greatest concern, I just wish you had also mentioned my neighbors egregious encroachment on our City Park land upon which their fire-pits reside...

Re: “City legal advisor shifts to Parks Department

So, an attorney who was responsible for attempting to "trade away" some of our treasured park land (think: Strawberry Fields; STILL in litigation!) to the Fraudmore, is going to be an advocate for the "stewardship and conservation" of our Parks?!? I think not! I trust her as much as I trust Karen Palus...

Re: “KRCC's cancelled "Wish We Were Here" radio show honored with Edward R. Murrow Award

Way to go Tammy Terwelp! You've made so many "tremendous" decisions at KRCC as of late. So many, in fact, that I no longer support you folks...

Re: “Bancroft Park band shell to be repaired after councilor 'horse trading'

As always, THANK you Pam Zubeck for keeping an eye on things. A "little horse trading"?!? Is that a euphemism for "greasing the palms"? Keith, you are, and always have been, repugnant!

Re: “City, Broadmoor negotiating over portions of the city's water system

Hey John Suthers,

How can you be trusted with statements like, "Suthers concurred, saying, 'If a sale is proposed, there will be plenty of opportunity for public discussion' ", when, after all, the "public discussions" concerning Strawberry Fields were nothing more than a dog and pony show by you, Parks and the Broadmoor? Answer: you are NOT to be trusted! That much is certain...

Re: “UPDATE: City tax hike study paralleled land swap debate

Regardless of his "apparent intentions" of helping to raise money for parks, Suther's doesn't give a rodents posterior about our public land (or this City). He aggressively lobbied for the Strawberry Fields "Land Grab" to go through to curry favor with The Broadmoor (think; Phil Anschutz). It's political; plain and simple. Next stop, The Governor's Mansion?!?
