Re: “City Summer Fest

Not worth the money. If you don't pay for the wrist band you buy tokens which are $1/ token. Most rides are 3 tokens but I saw one ride that was $7 (tokens), and the wrist band wasn't accepted. The price of the drinks and food is crazy high and they only take tokens. $3 for a 16 oz bottle of water. You could take your own drinks in a backpack and not waste so much money. The rides were ok and it wasn't too crowded.

But then again, our city is working to shut down our coal plant. Makes me wonder if he's just trying to appease his voter base while working towards the betterment of our city's clean air

Re: “Leave your stinkin' drone at home

With some common sense, we can all have both a degree of peace and extraordinary video/photos. sUASs are still in their infancy. And with some creative thinking, we can make it right for all sides of this discussion. Those folks that care for quiet like Bob. Those that don't mind (like Odin), and those (like me) who just want a stunning angle to see something so beautiful (without interrupting Bob's hiking peace). Regulations requiring licensing, quotas for use in national and state parks (like x scheduled drone flights at a designated location(s) between y and z times). These are the things we have to think about. Similarly the way the gentlemen mentions ATVs, we can grow into this new sUAS age in an equitable manner. First and foremost is requiring licensing (and suspension) for even non commercial. What say you?

Re: “Local lawmakers split over Comey testimony

"For highlights of Comey's testimony, go to this CNN site."

Seriously? You cannot trust anything that CNN produces nowadays. How about including a link to a non-partisan site?

Does anyone really believe the reporting of financial information surrounding this building and completion of surrounding infrastructure items is going to be transparent?

Re: “Working from home? You'll need more than your pajamas.

Thanks Jim. Those were classic keyboards and made when everything was of quality and of course much more money I feel.

Wired is the way to go if your office space is near your internet connection. There's less to go wrong no doubt and often faster. I do think you can secure your wifi and if you are logging in remotely I would guess you have a VPN, right? That should keep you secure but I agree that if you can do it- hard wire your network. I hate drilling holes though I have. I'm not the handy type unfortunately. I paid my handy man when I wired my basement office to my main connection up 2 1/2 stories higher. A lot of cabling... Thanks for reading! Feel free to email me if you have anything you want to discuss.

Re: “No bones about it

As a dog owner and lover I found the article "No Bones About It" very one sided. People might think it's a great idea to bring your pets everywhere but I feel it is a very selfish way of thinking. In a restaurant environment, the last thing I want to see is a bunch of dogs, calmly laying down or not. Restaurants have a hard enough time keeping their establishments clean from adults and kids visiting and then you add dogs, big or small, to the picture and it could become very costly, not to mention a liability for the store owner/manager if one time a dog bites a patron. Lets consider people who have allergies, dog phobias and any other personal issues people may have with animals in general. People have an unwarranted notion that everyone loves their dog and are oblivious about personal boundaries. No matter how much I love my dogs I will not put my dogs before other people. Let's not lose our heads and truly consider our pets as other people.

Re: “Local lawmakers split over Comey testimony

Congressman Doug Lamborn issued the following fake news after former FBI Director James Comey delivered:

The Lamborn alternative facts:
"... The former Director refused, under multiple avenues of questioning, to state that the President impeded or obstructed any investigations. I hope that we can now move on from the political theatrics of this hearing and return the focus to the important policy work being done to improve the lives of the American people."

The facts:
He refused, even under attack by Republican lawmakers asking multiple versions of the same question, to state that the President impeded or obstructed any investigations, IN AN OPEN, PUBLIC, FORUM. He deferred answering in public because it is an on-going investigation and the information is classified.

Yes, they are investigating your hero, and yes, we can now move on, to the criminal investigation. And no, not everyone is so distracted that we haven't noticed you passed deregulation of financial corps., giving them a license to steal while simultaneously defunding their oversight.

Re: “Working from home? You'll need more than your pajamas.

You'll have to pry my cold dead hands from my IBM 101 keyboard. You'd have to buy it used now but it still rocks countless years later.

These newer keyboards are mostly junk I think. The ones that come with most new computers are cheap. Nothing to do serious work on.

I would suggest discussing hard wired versus a wireless internet connection. I won't do business over a wi fi myself but that's just me. I don't trust my neighbors, lol.

Re: “Medical marijuana patients turn to the courts to roll back home grow regulations

Hack really is an imbecile. He and the General Assembly of Idiots are united in opposition to our constitutional rights to use cannabis. They have declared all patients growing sufficient cannabis to juice the leaves felons for the ostensible purpose of cracking down on the black market without even asserting that patients and caregivers (as opposed to the State's own not-so-tightly regulated dispensary system or non-patients growing cannabis illegally) are disproportionately responsible, much less adducing any evidence! The State has now joined the new front in the War opened by Denver and the Colorado Municipal League against homegrowing and will scapegoat patients for its own failures, using $6 million paid by cannabis-consumers in taxes to pay rural cops to go door to door demanding to come in and count plants! Colorado is incapable of self-government and the proofs are its putative repreentatives and elected officials.

Re: “D-11 sees legal threat over Confederate lesson

It is human nature to want to be the heroes of our own stories. I can't recall a single incident when someone lost a fight, battle, war or even an argument, then declared, "I really had that coming." In fact, losing seems to be a requirement for being able to claim the moral high ground ("Losing to such unworthy opponents just proves we were right"). But as a mixed-race son of pro-Union southerners, I'm especially interested in what actually happened. And I've read that every state that filed a petition or letter of concurrence for secession mentioned "slavery" as the reason. It doesn't matter who owned whom. The reasons why people justify killing in the name of others do. So, yes, the Civil War was about slavery. And the Stars and Bars have been a reminder from Reconstruction til today that some people think it's still ok to commit acts of violence against their fellow citizens based on skin color.

Re: “Reader: Militants don't represent Muslims

I concur with Mr. Karim that the great majority of Muslims do not want to blow up little girls, run over people on a bridge, or stab diners. That said, I ask Mr. Karim to understand that each of those events has happened within the last three weeks, and each mass murder was committed by those claiming the faith. Additional scrutiny is warranted, and I wish Mr. Karim and others all the best in ridding their faith of these monsters.
