Defending the individual voter

Comments Off

You won’t find endorsements for political candidates in the Colorado Springs Business Journal. That’s simply not how we operate. We’ve been asked and encouraged to support certain individuals, but we make no exceptions. We might take a stand on ballot issues that affect the community as a whole, and obviously the local business scene, but not… Continue Reading Defending the individual voter

Staying focused on two zones

Comments Off

Listen to leaders talk about the keys to revitalizing Colorado Springs, and you’ll hear several recurring responses. Mayor Steve Bach talked about three specific “drivers” this week at his monthly briefing. One is the airport’s commercial zone, being cultivated to appeal to possible manufacturing companies.

Opinion: Disasters have their aftershocks

In today’s nonstop world of breaking news, far too often we move to the next headlines and forget yesterday’s major stories — even when they happen here among us. Surely the residents of our area haven’t forgotten the natural disasters of the past two years. But sometimes it seems that way.

Academy stays on right track

Comments Off

We couldn’t help but admire Lt. Gen. Michelle Johnson this week as the Air Force Academy superintendent laid out the institution’s proposed budget cuts for fiscal year 2015. Many high-ranking officers would have taken the easier way out, sending their well-laundered comments to the media along with the basic facts, thus avoiding the kind of… Continue Reading Academy stays on right track

Comments Off

More than 150 people gathered last week in a place most of them had never seen before, except from the outside. But that didn’t stop the crowd from sharing a tangible excitement. They celebrated the opening of the Lane Center for Academic Health Services, a four-story, $18.5 million building just across North Nevada Avenue from… Continue Reading Opinion: UCCS shows value of partnerships

Time for C4C donors to step up

Comments Off

For months now, naysayers and skeptics have been taking repeated potshots at City for Champions — many questioning the usage and revenue forecasts for the four projects, others criticizing the lack of transparency, but everyone wondering how organizers will make it to an acceptable bottom line. Through it all, we’ve been assured, there’s no reason… Continue Reading Time for C4C donors to step up

This time last year, the Colorado Springs Airport was making news headlines for all the wrong reasons. There was the haymaker from Frontier Airlines, which ended its service between Colorado Springs and Denver with access to its many low-fare flights out of DIA, followed by pulling out of the Springs altogether. Then came the sudden… Continue Reading Airport still awaits good news
