Re: “Spring's downtown bicycle infrastructure progresses despite growing pains

I work downtown and Weber Street is a mess! I get why and the benefit but turning it to one lane each way has turned a downtown north/south major thoroughfare into traffic chaos especially with the added road construction and building construction taking place.

Cars are still driving in the bike lane thinking it's a turn lane and those waiting to get into Dutch Brothers use the bike lane as a waiting line. The vertical delineators do help somewhat but now they limit the space when a vehicle turns left from an east/west street onto Weber, especially if cars are stopped at the light on Weber. I would not even consider parking my car on Weber now. And if the delineators are removed for the plows, that's going to be even more interesting when we do have snow on the road.

It's been a couple of months and people still pull up behind the parked cars thinking it's a lane (it's actually kind of funny to watch their reaction - honking and yelling at the empty parked cars in front of them). Because Weber is no longer an easy north/south route, Nevada and Wahsatch are experiencing more traffic.

Re: “Housing and Building Association stormwater measure's biggest donor

A little late for people to see they have been manipulated by the City to pass another fee. All YOU who pushed InvestCOS probably did so knowing the developers were paying so they are not held accountable for all the issues they cause and all the issues overlooked by the City who is to make sure projects are built and engineered properly.

Re: “Sheriff Bill Elder calls Indy story "crap"

@Dufney, not only that, but if the man laying dying of cancer in the hospital, was a deputy then why did Elder need to go swear him in? If he was a deputy, in the month of May, why did he need to be sworn in? And then they took it over to be recorded, but then checked to see when it was recorded so they could put it on the plaque...what????

Re: “Sheriff Elder lashes out at Indy reporter

He's right! A hastily written article with no facts is irresponsible and shoddy journalism! Pam should be embarrassed, you'd think that she would know better. But Liberal Democrats would rather create controversy by releasing "fake news" than accurate reporting. This is bigly!

Re: “Gays bash Hobby Lobby as insensitive

It always starts with them not being allowed to shop. Soon, other stores start doing it because it's okay. And gradually, their civil rights are drained away. Why not torture them? I mean it's fine, it's my "religious belief"; family values should mean helping the families in poverty and war zones.

Re: “Sheriff Bill Elder calls Indy story "crap"

Elder's version of events doesn't make sense. "in May 2016, he visited a dying deputy and had his oath notarized and the filed it right away and noticed all the others were missing. Well, Sgt. Conrad passed away in 2015 so Elder's timeline is wrong. All the fraudulent notaries were filed on April 15, 2016. Maybe Elder and his buddies need to rethink his "version of events"

Re: “Sheriff Bill Elder calls Indy story "crap"

@Holmes, youre an idiot. And if you think any of us believe you arent Elder himself or one of his ass-kissers, then weve got some oceanfront property in Ellicot for you. Give it up-your first AND Last name. If youre not connected to Elder, what are you hiding from?

If the DA knows firsthand that several of Elders employees committed purjury, and he did nothing about it, he sure wont be charging his buddy Elder with anything. The DA is corrupt. The judges are corrupt. Elder knows they have his back.

Re: “Sheriff Bill Elder calls Indy story "crap"

Then write the warrant for the Coroner
If he refuses to act, go the media. I'd love to see the PC affidavit for the alleged crimes. I guarantee that Deputies hiding their true identity can't author such a document. They're spreading misinformation no differently than Trump haters!

Re: “Sheriff Bill Elder calls Indy story "crap"

You are just proving my point which is that Elder, the DA, and probably some judges are corrupt. The DA is doing nothing to investigate because he is best friends with Elder and no judge would sign off on the arrest because of how politics work here. Additionally, even if a judge did sign off on the arrest, the DA is still the one who would decide whether or not to prosecute....... so no judge is going to touch that. On top of that and correct me if I'm wrong Mr. Randall but a deputy does not have the authority to arrest the sheriff...... only the county coroner can actually affect the arrest. (criminal justice 101 and real life politics 101).

Re: “Sheriff Bill Elder calls Indy story "crap"

I'm still waiting for an answer from my last question! And for the record, I have absolutely nothing to do with the Sheriff's Department. I just find it quite entertaining that people are such cowards. If he's breaking the law, do something about it! Otherwise, you have nothing. You absolutely have no probable cause that he's committed a crime. If you have, write an arrest warrant. Law enforcement 101 people, not that difficult.

Re: “Sheriff Bill Elder calls Indy story "crap"

You must be one of Elders Cronies, you are the perfect example of the pot calling the kettle black. Telling others that they should use their Real name and yet you wont. Dont worry, your ship is sinking and you will be scurrying off that ship with the rest of all the other rats that are covering up for elders corruption. I just feel bad for all the hard men and women working at EPSO being subjected to people like you and Elder. But the word is getting out and soon all of you will be held accountable........ can you hear the sound....... the train is coming. Go Mike Angley and thank you to Pam Zubeck and for shining a light on Evil Elder and the money hungry minions that support him!!!

Re: “Sheriff Bill Elder calls Indy story "crap"

Bunch of pansies! You talk so tough but are too cowardly to act! If he's committed a crime, make an arrest! Otherwise shut your pie holes! You're sworn correct? If so you have arrest authority! Write an arrest warrant and get it signed by a judge! Oh yeah, you don't have PC! You'd rather gossip on an irrelevant news outlet blog rather than take action. Now I know why you chose to remain anonymous....I'd be embarrassed too spreading such nonsense!!

Re: “Sheriff Bill Elder calls Indy story "crap"

@Holmes ... why don't YOU man up, get up off your knees, grow a pair, stop being complacent, and stand up against the corruption of the Elder Administration. You keep playing your diversion tactics and have this holier than thou attitude. You kinda sound a little like Bill Huffor in a way. He always walked around with a superiority complex. Anyway, get a grip. Your so-called leader is as crocked as they come.

Ask yourself ... as you sit by watching your boss commit crimes ... are YOU "faithfully performing the Deputy Sheriff..." As a SWORN officer, it would be your duty to uphold the law and enforce it. Sitting back and watching your boss commit crimes and doing nothing about it shows a lot about your commitment to upholding and enforcing the law. Maybe your badge oughta be stripped from you.

Re: “Sheriff Bill Elder calls Indy story "crap"

@Holmes Obviously, you are one of Bill's buddies, and that's fine for you.

You want us to "Faithfully perform the duties" we swore to do. That includes enforcing the law. Our boss has been breaking the law. There is a conflict for us to try to investigate our own boss, so we are asking for someone else to do it. I have a son and daughter to support, so I'm not going to risk my own job.

There is a difference between disrespecting your boss and blowing the whistle when he is crooked.

"Elder was elected by the people." Yeah... so was Trump.

Don't forget... The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
