Re: “Recent hate crimes lead to "love lives here" rally

"Love lives here" is a powerful phrase. They say the only thing that combats darkness is light, so it is only fitting that hate be fought with the only force that can eliminate it, love. A troubling story on its face and I'm glad the newspaper chose to run a positive title to focus on the good in this community.

Re: “Mountain Mama's Natural Foods' offerings need to be highlighted

Just taking one look at the photo I can tell the ingredients they use are super fresh. That looks like a delicious sandwich. Looking forward to checking this place out.

Re: “Officer who testified in Maketa case says he misspoke

The overwhelming majority of police officers are honest and we appreciate their service. Given the power of a police officer's testimony; if a police officer is ever found to have knowingly lied under oath they should be severely punished. The power to deprive another of their liberty is so great that there must be an active counterbalance. Superiors looking the other way is not acceptable. These individuals in these positions are sworn to uphold justice and defend personal liberty.

The example in this article might be an honest mistake as the officer contends. However, there are other examples in this and other jurisdictions in the state that sadly destroy good people's lives.

Re: “Six ways art and music lovers, young scientists and connoisseurs of wine and beer should spend this weekend

The Space Foundation event sounds like a winner. It is incredible to think that humankind has been able to develop and land a device on Mars. Curiosity is the size of a small car (mini cooper) and has spent five years gathering samples for study. What an amazing time to be alive with so much advancement. Our ancestors would marvel at the world we live in today.

Re: “Left Hand Brewing Co. and The Collective to host beer dinner

What a great idea. I wish I would have seen this earlier. My wife and I went to a similar themed dinner at Fresca Food and Wine in Boulder and it was an incredible experience. It was interesting to see how well different brews paired with dishes that you would traditionally pair with wine. The developments in beer culture over the past decade are so exciting. I hope we see more of this type of event around town.

Re: “Courthouse in Colorado Springs tosses out old furniture

Even if it is damaged it is too bad they didn't make the furniture available for the start up community in Colorado Springs. There are numerous small businesses that would have appreciated some of that equipment or furniture. Sure, some of it was junk but when I was in my teens building my first business I was sitting on the floor with a computer and a printer. A desk with duct tape or propped on a couple books would have been much appreciated back then.

Re: “Motion seeks dismissal of charges against former Sheriff Terry Maketa

Prosecutors love to stack charges to bully defendants. I hope Maketa takes them to the cleaners when this is over for charging him with extra crimes with no support and dragging his name through the mud. Prosecutors charging people with weak or no evidence just to try to force a plea is unethical and lazy.
