Public open space protection?!? Just like your complicity in helping The Fraudmoor grab our public land...?

Re: “Election results start pouring in, voters friendly to gov asks

nobuddysfuuul, you do realize 1A included all El Paso County residents and those eligible to vote for 2A were limited to only residents within the Colorado Springs city limits?

Re: “Election results start pouring in, voters friendly to gov asks

Congratulations, Colorado Springs has officially become Denverfornia. Start tightening your belts folks,its a certain thing that our local government sure won't. All they do is pick our pockets and never do what they said. All I see around is beautifying the medians (more sleeping area for the bum population) from 2c. I'll bet that next year that $5 storm water "fee" will go way up and we probably won't see any improvements from anything.

Re: “Election results start pouring in, voters friendly to gov asks

Very sad that people simply can't read. Nothing like signing away tax dollars in the future. It might only cost you $100 today but what will that be in 5 years or 10? Cost adjustments without going back to the people to vote on it? Keeping all future overages? Way to go. Government NEVER gives back money.

Re: “Former El Paso County Sheriff’s Office notary says top officials ordered falsifying of hundreds of oath affidavits

Citizens of El Paso County, if this article outrages you (and it should), there is an alternative. I will be writing much more about this in the coming days, but for now, please visit my website to learn more about me and my candidacy for Sheriff of El Paso County. It's time to bring in an outsider to change the direction in the EPSO.

More California and Denver people moving here will mean higher taxes. They don't speak manage money, only take more of the people's money for the government to waste.

Re: “Air Force Academy concludes racism investigation

It's interesting that Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria gives a powerful condemnation back in September, 2016 of what turned out to be (as usual) another in a long line of hate hoaxes. But now that the real racist has finally been exposed as yet another black person targeting whites, Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria is no where to be found, instead his spokesman lackey issues an email filed under 'Never mind. Nothing to see here, move along.' Why isn't Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria calling the cadets together again and giving the same forceful speech about black racist hate hoaxes? Maybe Silveria's racism only flows one way.

Re: “Election results start pouring in, voters friendly to gov asks

So rigged! 140k votes for 1a, 90k total votes for 2a!

Wow! Fifty thousand people voted for one and not the other... Hmmmm...

Re: “Election results start pouring in, voters friendly to gov asks

I've now "witnessed" something I've never before seen: ALL the tax measures on the ballot for the Pikes Peak region got approved. Pity. I guess the participating registered voting populace isn't taxed enough yet.
For those seeking another option, other than moving elsewhere, please research Walter Burien and CAFR.

Re: “Air Force Academy concludes racism investigation

Like this was a surprise, given that 99% of these have been hoaxes since last Nov. 8.

The commander should be ashamed of himself for making innocent people stand at attention for his rant, given that he jumped to conclusions. He showed extremely poor judgment and should be fired.

Re: “The Indy's picks for the 2017 Coordinated Elections

Actually Morgan Chavez is also a community activist. She is part of an activist group and has organized many protests and rallies with them. Chavez also avidly volunteers at schools and organizations. It seems like you are under-crediting her by saying she just works at an insurance company.

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

Wonderful article Patience, and so true.

For those that would like to know where the Leon Young Picnic Pavilion is, its right along the southern most stretch of the Shooks Run Trail in the Hillside Neighborhood.

Here is a map link:

Re: “Reader: Either assimilate, or get out

Well, first of all, if they apply they will be deported, if they live under the radar they likely will not. Second, they pay in to social security which they can never collect, helping to support citizens that do. Third, not everybody wants to be a US citizen, some are just trying to feed families in their native countries. Finally, why do so many care whether someone is a US citizen, they are a citizen of this planet, and like everyone else they had no choice of where they were born. Maybe everyone should be a better world citizen.
