City’s chance to repair damage

Just when you think Colorado Springs might be improving its image as seen by the outside world, we stumble again and expose our unsightly political underbelly for all to see. City Council and mayoral candidates deny climate change. State Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt embarrasses himself, the Colorado Republican party and this city with outrageous comments that… Continue Reading City’s chance to repair damage

Comments Off

As the final days wound down for the 2015 municipal election, several discouraging points jumped out at us.

But that’s exactly what happened when a recent multi-state journey included passing through southwest Missouri and specifically the city of Springfield.

The effort may be there, but the results aren’t. “Let the game come to you.” If you’ve ever played a team sport, you’ve heard those words. Your coach sees that you’re not… Continue Reading Let the game come to you
