Re: “Reader: Why not choose clean, sustainable energy anyways?

Rocky Smith- You mean big, upfront money like that spent on the Neumann Systems contract? A $190M fleecing that would have been better spent on real GREEN technology, rather than expensively (and dubiously) prolong the lifespan of 19th century energy production methods? THAT kind of big money?

Re: “UPDATE: Tiny House Jamboree to leave Colorado Springs

Hi fellow readers!

I just wanted to let you all know about the following event. Three local builders were very disappointed that there was no longer going to be a festival in Colorado so they joined up to make this happen! I've copied the info below:

COME TO THE FIRST ANNUAL COLORADO TINY HOUSE FESTIVAL!!

Come see many unique tiny homes, tiny homes on wheels, yurt homes, shipping container homes, and other small unique structures! Hosted at the sprawling Wild Animal Sanctuary, NE Denver, brought to you by Einstyne Tiny Homes, Rocky Mountain Tiny Homes, and Trailer Made Custom Trailers.

Learn about going tiny, simplifying your life, minimalistic living, and living greener!
There will be vendors, speakers, entertainment, food, drink, and you can even decide to take a walk on the wild side and visit the Wild Animal Sanctuary to see the most incredible, majestic rescued wildlife in Colorado!

Part of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the Wild Animal Sanctuary

THIS IS A FAMILY FRIENDLY EVENT!

Children 12 & under are FREE!

Go to http://coloradotinyhousefestival.com/ for more info or to get your tickets!

Re: “Reader: We all know why the Civil War took place

Jay Whynotaskme- Why not ask you? I'm certain to get a more nuanced and educationed answer from either of my two dogs, and at least one of my cats.

ARE YA MAD BRO?!

Re: “Pikes Peak Summit Complex still worthy of higher cost

What percentage of those "6 million visitors a year" are here for recreation purposes vs. business, Ralph? When ANY public project's budget doubles, seemingly, overnight, I think the citizens (who will, ultimately, be on the hook for this thing) need to raise their level of healthy skepticism...no matter how nice and "sustainable" the new "attraction" will be.

So, if we "beleive you that the price will be worth it", and it turns out to be another fleecing of the taxpayers of Colorado Springs for the betterment of a small grpup of 'connected' local businesses, are you going to write a check to make it right? I didn't think so...?
