Re: “One woman’s exploration into the Springs’ homeless problem

Thank you for this article/editorial. It is powerful and speaks to the core of how do we define compassion, safety and humanity. It is, indeed, a complex and multi-layered issue. One thing is for sure, by choosing to "wall off" the homeless population from one's community instead of investing in the community's services and infrastructure, nothing is solved and the challenges are simply amplified!

Re: “A House divides

THANK YOU INDY FOR COVERING THIS VERY IMPORTANT LOCAL STORY! The impact on the atmosphere and community of downtown Manitou Springs will be quite dramatic. As to the surprise of the TX based organization over the local outrage as represented by the general manager, I don't by it. They must have known that the quiet quirky and fervently independent spirit of the residents would resist this type of monstrosity.
Finally, architect Comstock's characterization of the Wheeler House as run-down & undesirable speaks volumes to his total lack of understanding of the culture of this gem in the Rockies. This is not a town for millionaires but rather a community where many are welcome - a remnant of the true spirit of the west. I pray that this Texas based vision for Manitou Springs stays in Texas!
