Re: “Needle exchange debate by El Paso County Board of Health ends with "no" vote

Here; have some more needles to leave behind when you're done juicing up. Because once high; every junkie wants to make line #1 being able to remember to pick up their needle when they drop it. Because; uh, fantasyland? Hamburger!

Re: “UPDATE: Venetucci farmers laid off as contaminated water spoils finances

"Security and Widefield asked to suspend payment"
Oh, total suspension? As in totally shut out the people living there? Totally? 15, 21 days before Christmas? Total suspension? Have a very shameful Christmas to all the board members, any and all that obviously gave no thoughts towards that horrific blanket solution.

Please take this entire situation back to realityville; which is a place the COS area is rapidly leaving. As in the old people in the Broadmoor area mid-rise getting booted, this mess, transients rapidly taking over the corners, trash and litter everywhere. Is this tomorrow's normal for Colorado Springs? Caring, charitable, affordable, clean, crime free, smooth flowing Colorado Springs?

Am I missing the Miracle on 34th Street concept? Did somebody like; die poorly and upset the timeline of our Finest Small City of America?

WTF is happening?

Re: “Police are ticketing far more homeless campers than they once did

"""Just fyi, I can't recall ever seeing a homeless person lugging around a shovel to "dig a hole""""

There are a lot of rocks in Colorado; and there is a lot of scree dirt and debris. Marion house, SRM, Dorchester Park, heck, even a sewer drain. Lots of options as compared to a pile beside the path, in the alley, on and on and on. If a person can't solve this simple stuff; a home (which usually means an electrical outlet, maybe a stove, a microwave, running water - may as well put a 911 call box on the wall; because that is a whole nother set of emergencies waiting to happen) probably is not the next step in evolution.

About the time a person needs assistance in the how and where to poop category; not sure where to go with helping them. Filling the five gallon bucket and dumping it in the creek is not the right option either. (That does become our drinking water; and is also used to water crops - care for a good old fashioned TB or Hepatitis outbreak? Salmonella anybody?)

Still no trash solutions - the age old concept of 'bring it in; carry it out'. Check back when that basic elementary school level item gets mastered. Because so far; these basic pre-teen tasks (and management items, for the more evolved homeless to perhaps mentor to the less than developed among them) are easily seen to be lacking.

Stop trashing our outdoor areas!

Re: “Inequity in city’s parks and open spaces must be addressed

Oh Ghost's of Palmer and Stratton be with us ... do *not* walk Shooks Run N or S of there; and do *not* walk the near or around the bridge over Shooks Run to the South of the Leon Young Pavillion.

Creek Week won't even touch this particular zone of the city - would you? Needles, five gallon buckets of feces, tents surrounded with collections of garbage (Ski boots? Really? Five or six dismembered bike frames? Single shoes? Useless baskets, torn luggage, wheel less shopping carts?).

Ok, if you would like to see a small scale version of the newest Mad Max movie; take a walk! Enjoy a literal canyon of trash, garbage, plastic, busted up furniture; and more. PS: Watch your step!

Yah, let's pack it out if you can pack it in! Three years ago it was a small forest, full of trails and bike paths; then about 30-45 transients moved in; caught it on fire; dropped about half a foot of trash on the forest floor; and ta-dah! The only thing the RR could do was to bull dozer it all to the ground.

I could care less about where and how people live; but if all they can do is ruin an area with the garbage they bring in (and somehow are unable to bring back out); it is *not* the responsibility of other people to be cleaning up after them. Disgusting environmental manners, disgusting!

Re: “Inequity in city’s parks and open spaces must be addressed

I'm not finding the Leon Young Pavilion at South Shooks Run Park on Google maps - what are some streets near to it?
