Re: “Pam Shockley-Zalabak inks agreement with Colorado Springs Forward

With the addition of Dan Stuart to the Board of CSF, I see some positive direction in support of trail development!

Re: “Parks belong to the city’s citizens, not tourists

Try Lewiston, Idaho next door to Clarkston , Washington.

The big rivers of the Northwest drain to the area. Snake river w Hells Canyon, the salmon river-three hundred miles w/o a dam, and the Clearwater. 30 miles from Washington State U and U of Idaho.

Re: “Is the Olympic scandal damaging the city's image?

It is my understanding that Rick Wehner will be running for City Council in April 2019. Rather than running for an at large seat, he will be running for a large Gadfly seat!

Re: “Martin Drake: A look at the Springs’ least popular power plant


Thanks for reminded the public that the staff had recommended 2029 in 2015 and not 2035. 2035 was a last minute necessary political move to get a fifth vote for a timeline for closing.

Also, the Board voted for a 12% conservation (Demand side Management) goal that has recently been totally ignored.

Re: “Strawberry Fields' appraiser faces penalties for his work on the city's land exchange

The purchase of the property was made with a vote of the people in 1885 (I believe). The decision last year should have been made with a vote of the people. Hopefully, that is what the Court of Appeals will decide. Simple!

Re: “5 terms The Broadmoor agreed to in the city's study of selling Rosemont Reservoir

If water was a depreciating asset it might make sense. Water will do nothing but apprciate as the years go on.
