Re: “Olympic museum to break ground

Why Colorado Springs will always be in Denver's shadow: Outdated decision makers that would waste $75M on a turd (i.e. Olympic Museum). The city already wasted half of that total ($35M) keeping the Olympic admin offices local (I hear children from across this nation begging their parents for a trip to the Olympic administrative offices)! Can we clear out the old money think tank and liven this town up?!

Re: “Colorado Springs Police pick up the pace on response times

Stop letting the developers run rampant. Not only can't the road infrastructure in this town keep up, neither can the CSPD hiring processes (especially since hitting 1 cone during driving training disqualifies you from the academy).

Re: “Old St. Francis Hospital assessed value soars from $50,000 to $2 million following report

Really like how they purchased it for 50k, then donated a million to avoid the taxes. If the Independent wouldn't have pointed it out it would have gone unchecked.

Re: “Science march draws nearly 1,000 in public display of nerd-ity

And how'd they get downtown? In their rare kangaroo mouse choking, squirrel squashing, seats 9 but I have 2 and 1 is at soccer practice SUV. Move back to Oregon you dipwads.

Re: “CSPD's academy flunks eight due to failing the driving test

I'm curious as to how much drive training they get prior to the test? It didn't specify, just that it was inaccurate. The whole trainer flying the drone thing should raise some eyebrows within the police hierarchy.

Re: “Blazin 98.5 fans the flames of hip-hop nostalgia

Love the station, but here are my reason's why the Station is struggling to gain a larger percentage of listeners (below the Christian stations for Christs (pun intended) sake!):

1) Afternoon on air flea market (WTF?)
2) Extremely weak signal, either no bass or no treble depending on distance from Platte location. 1000 watt system and can't get my rear-view mirror to budge.
3) No consistency (what time can I tune in just to hear music? Dunno, which is why I stopped tuning in).

This town has needed a Station of this genre forever. The Beat sucks, Magic sucks. Just like the other rock stations and their 20 song rotations daily. We're in the age of online listening (i.e. Pandora, Spotify), time to step up your game or get to steppin'.

Re: “Sheriff's Office's "fight club" results, and two inmates deaths

Fight Club? Reynolds was found unresponsive by another inmate (not sure any other inmates had something to with it considering Reynolds child abuse charge) the other was being transported back to jail from the hospital when the officer noticed he was in distress. Not sure how these two incidents correlate to a couple deputy's vying for the most "use of force" incidents? In typical DNC-style news stories, its blame now ask questions (i.e. discover the facts) later.
