Re: “Josh Hosler named El Paso County GOP Party Chair

Remember that the Colorado GOP shows it's true colors also by continuing to have Gordon Kleinschmit as a member of it's executive committee.

Re: “Grinder Sandwich Company eyes October opening

I do not know where he got this story or description of grinders.
A submarine, a sub is know in other parts of the tri state area as a wedge, hoagie, hero or grinder. It's a sandwich on a long roll.

Re: “One class of landowner would get special treatment under city’s stormwater fees

This shows that council did not think through this TAX increase and it is badly worded and should be voted against. Just saying Doug Bruce doesn't believe in it should not be enough to get this TAX INCREASE correct.

MikeB - if you find your account suspended it is because you spam the comments.
Your content is crummy but that isn't the reason you are being shut down. It is the mindless yelling in comments. Mindless Alex Jones like comments.

Re: “Food deserts limit access to healthy foods for low-income people

People have great ideas that do not help the person of low income having access to better food. Notice the part about transportation. I also don't think you'll find warehouses in the middle of every 'food dessert'.

After my 9 hour job I don't have to spend an hour each way traveling 15 miles home on public transport. It is interesting that neighborhood markets' are still the bigger box store that pushed out the convenient local market from neighborhoods. Where I grew up there was a strip mall 3 blocks away with a deli, meat store, and a Korean (which is a vegetable / fruit store). The other direction 3 blocks was the other deli, the kosher deli / bagel store and a fish store. These groups of stores were also where the buses stopped. People are tired and education won't help them stretch that $4.50 a day to feed 4 people. I also realize that learning smart menus does work but my point is the immediate need is cost to feed families that might not even be able to make it to the food shelves.
