Re: “Secretary of State Office investigated for official misconduct

Good! No elected official could be more corrupt than Williams. This is why I am supporting Jena Griswold for Secretary of State in November. She is an honest person, who will do what it takes to keep elections free of partisanship and open to all voters.

Re: “ACLU of Colorado wins ICE-related suit against El Paso County Sheriff Bill Elder, county appealing

Keep it up, ACLU...... This tells you all you need to know:
His ruling further notes, that El Paso County is one of only two counties in Colorado that currently honor ICE detainer requests. (The other is apparently Adams County.)
El Paso County is in the minority here, and Im guessing they do it to gain revenue and keep the jail full. Good for the ACLU, exposing and challenging the racist practices of our county. Hope they dont waste too much taxpayer money on fruitless appeals......

Re: “Students walked out against gun violence. Let's honor them.

Well said, Indy! And way to go, students. I attended the Walk Out with other community supporters from my church, and was very impressed. Young people, more than any other age group, are most affected by gun violence. Columbine and the Aurora theatre shooting wasted many young lives, and left a hole in the hearts of their loved ones. Proud of you, young people, for taking a stand!

Re: “Is CBD oil massage really as dope as its disciples insist?

Another consideration: the source of the CBD. Is it extracted from industrial hemp or from the marijuana plant? The benefits of CBD in combination with THC and the multiple other cannabinoids found in Marijuana plants have been documented. Industrial hemp is not a strong oil producer and does not contain much THC or necessarily terpenes and other cannabinoids. This makes a difference in CBDs medical effects. Both industrial hemp and marijuana are cannabis varieties, but only one Marijuana has a full spectrum of cannabinoids for healing. Use the hemp-based CBD at your own peril.......

Re: “North Cheyenne CaƱon: No vehicles allowed?

Please, people, NO MORE SHUTTLE BUSES. These are turning our public park areas into commercial nightmares, full of large polluting vehicles, and they are not a solution, especially when controlled by a rich commercial entity like the Broadmoor., that has its own interests first.
Would you want to live on the formerly quiet neighborhood streets in the Cheyenne Caon now that the Broadmoor owns the 7 Falls, where NO VEHICLES ARE ALLOWED, only dozens of shuttle buses that run back and forth continually, forcing neighbors to cope with noise, fumes, and commercial traffic? UGH, City Traffic people should be fired for making this plan.
The Broadmoor needs to stay in their own space, instead of continually wanting to snatch up more public spaces for their private enjoyment. And please, City Council, Tax the shit out of them at least to pay for some of their abuse of the community. The Broadmoor used to be an asset to the community, now it feels more like a predator. We need to elect more councilors like Skorman and Gaebler who will stand up to the Broadmoor and contain their ambitions.
If we have to have shuttle buses into the Canon, let them be public transportation operated by the city for all people, including Broadmoor guests who might choose to ride one.
