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

But Colorado Springs is a "World-Class City"! Certainly should be able to host an eco- friendly type event of this size with ease.

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

I went the first Jamboree at the Museum of Mining and even then the crowds were large and the facilities inadequate. Altho it is on the West Coast, which would be inconvenient for some, there is a good facility with indoor and outdoor space plus public transit at the Irvine Great Park. They have hosted the Solar Decathlon (another great small living expo) which is moving to Denver at 61st and Pena Station this year. Since I haven't been to that Denver location I can't recommend it, but it is on the light rail which would alleviate the traffic and parking issues.

Re: “Colorado State Senate votes against re-appointment of lesbian Civil Rights Commission chair

As if her sexual orientation mattered. Her activism is the sticking point.

Re: “Colorado State Senate votes against re-appointment of lesbian Civil Rights Commission chair

You mean Republicans voted AGAINST this woman. Their abject hatred for anyone who is not a straight, rich, white, gun-toting male is on full display with this vote!

Re: “Lamborn votes 'yes' on GOP health care bill as constituents storm local office

What does that say about the people who live in his District? Not much. They continue to keep voting him into office, over and over, and over again. So, if they lose their healthcare coverage, that's on THEM! They will have gotten what THEY wanted and deserve! They have always known where he stands and on which side he votes. Too bad, so sad. I for one, won't be shedding any tears for them.

Not surprising in this city of 1830s sensibility.

Did the Visitors Convention Bureau, City Economic Development Office, Regional Business Alliance or whatever their name of the week is try to work with you to keep your event in Colorado Springs?

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

Darin here from the Jamboree. The event was international. 10 countries that we know of represented. 50% from out of state. Hotels were booked solid, restaurants, businesses swamped north, and we were warned if we backed up traffic in I 25 like the first year, we would be shut down. :)

Unfortunately the event was and is getting too big for our small band of grassroots staff and volunteers. I applaud them and appreciate the staff at the Air Force Academy for the great relationship last year. It was a good venue for where it was at, but has evolved quickly into needing much bigger facilities with indoor space as well.

I hate to see it leave my town, but like last year...it got too big and we needed to make some very fast decisions and changes. We hope to be back!

More announcements to come.

Re: “Lamborn votes 'yes' on GOP health care bill as constituents storm local office

For those who voted for Drumpf and Lamborn, you're getting exactly what you wanted and what you deserve. If you lose your healthcare, you'll have no one to blame BUT YOURSELVES. They made it VERY clear where they stood on this issue; and the fact that they celebrated afterwards is just downright sickening! That you think they care about YOU is sad; because they don't; just themselves. And they care about women least of all. There were 13 Republicans who worked on this Bill...ALL old, white men; not ONE woman on the committee and it shows in the Bill! They won't even pay for contraception for women, but WILL pay for Viagra for men! Who do they think gets women pregnant? The Easter Bunny? I guess they expect them to stay at home and be pregnant for their entire lives. The other group taking a big hit, the elderly of course....SAD!

Good luck trying to vote him out. He was almost ousted during last years county convention, but stomped his opponents in the primary and the general elections. He'll only be out of office if he decide to leave or the Republican leadership wants him out.

Re: “Mayor John Suthers warns against 'sanctuary city' policy, Green party pushes ahead

Mr. Suthers should know that ICE can come in to *any* part of the nation, period. There is *no* "sanctuary" from that.

What right-wing racists want is to appropriate city and state resources to carry out a federal function. That is the kind of thing "conservatives" have called an "unfunded mandate" on other issues. But not on this.

It is destructive because this war on law-abiding immigrants will increase crime because crimes won't be reported by those who fear police will reported them to ICE.

Besides, the U.S. farm policies and NAFTA *created* the illegal immigration problem by wrecking the livelihood of millions of Latin Americans. See "How NAFTA and Farm Policy Subsidies Created the Illegal Immigration Problem"
