Re: “Obituary: 'Street Smarts' writer Bob Campbell

I just went to Bob's old home to tell him an article idea I had last month I could see he no longer lived there. In the past years we would bump into each other on trails and talk for long periods. Ironically, I only found out he died 15 minutes ago when looking at an old photo of a guy on Facebook I know who happened to be reading an independent from Oct. 26 and I could partially see this obituary on that photo in his lap. I've known Bob since he and his wife first came to Colorado Springs. My daughter played with his. My parents actually got to know his family first, often meeting with them in Manitou's Memorial Park so our children could play together. Soon, I got to know him better because Bob was the editor of the Cheyenne .Edition, a paper that I often contributed articles to as President of CMEA.. He was a good and reliable friend, humble about his academic background, always interested in the truth and in making his community and his town a better place. I will miss him.

Re: “Bach takes office, quickly puts more money into parks

I care that a Christian minister didn't emphasize Jesus in his benediction. That's a class act. Religious inclusiveness by our civic leaders is important and appreciated when trying to maintain an open minded community. I didn't want Bach to be mayor, but this article gives me some hope. Thank goodness someone realizes that public land needs to be maintained because the "Common" provides some needed playing fields and shady trees for all as we landowners are forced to rethink the wisdom of our personal use of water, and people better understand that we live in a semi-arid climate that has periods of being extremely dry.
