Re: “Cog Railway closure could impact recreation on Pikes Peak

So wasn't the city planning to build a new mtn top gift shop? Is this a play by Anschutz to control the concessions? I hope the plan to build atop Pikes Peak is scrapped with this closure!

Re: “UPDATE: Regional Building takes second look at questionable deal

So in essence the city would be financing the land portion of the project developed by Norwood and then either co-own the development with Norwood or sell it outright to them. Lots of room for conflict of interest in that arrangement...

Re: “City defends "dangerous" bike lanes

“However, the cyclist should assess their riding ability and experience before attempting [traveling] on any bike lane with traffic.” Wrong, it's not a question of cyclists ability and experience. No amount of ability will prevent a car from crossing into a bike lane that is too narrow and too close to high speed traffic, and parallel to a wall with no escape. What an irresponsible comment to make! I sincerely hope that it was quoted out of context. Go to this site and witness for yourself car after car crossing into the painted bike lane.

Re: “The arts community backs City for Champions

Attendance is not a direct correlation to support. Many attended to learn more despite being opposed to building a downtown stadium.

Re: “Colorado College's plan for its own solar array goes dark, triggering student protest

The argument that renewable energy is not cost effective is out dated. Many governments (eg. Minnesota) and municipalities have recently determined the cost of solar and wind to be less than fossil fuels. Yes, coal is cheap if you don't take into account the environmental impact or the actual injury to our health. When you pass it down stream as coal ash (Duke Energy) or it drifts out over the ocean from China to become the mercury in the fish we eat, or it take years to manifest itself as lung cancer, then it's not included in the costs. We are all smarter than that!
