Dear Carl Schueler, Assistant Director of County Planning, and El Paso County Commissioners, Allow me to thank each of you for your work in consideration of the proposed Wal-Mart at Baptist Road and I-25.

Dear Editor, I couldn’t agree with you more Mr. Matejczyk. We’ve only lived in the Gleneagle area for four years, but I can only imagine the devastating effect the proposed Wal-Mart would have on our quality of life. The zoning laws in our area were put in effect for a reason – to eliminate the… Continue Reading Wal-Mart would have devastating effect on quality of life

Dear Editor, I am in full agreement with Lon Matejczyk concerning the Wal-Mart that is trying to destroy a peaceful way of life on Baptist Road. Growth is going to happen, but I would rather see some quaint shops and nice condos there instead. Wal-Mart will be, to say the least, an eyesore.

Dear Mr. Matejczyk, I strongly oppose Wal-Mart’s new store at Baptist and I-25 for the same reasons you do.

Would Sam be making the same decision?

Comments Off

Dear Mr. Matejczk, Just a short note to thank you for your editorial regarding the placement of a Wal-Mart store on Baptist Road. I don’t believe that the late Mr. Walton, founder of Wal-Mart, would want to force a Wal-Mart on the Monument community after hearing all the opposition. One need look no further then… Continue Reading Would Sam be making the same decision?

When we decided to conduct the Best in Springs Business survey, we hoped that the categories would distinguish our poll from the other “Best of” lists that various print publications produce. Since we’re a business-focused publication, we chose categories that were, well, business-focused. We were hoping to find out who and what our readers thought… Continue Reading The best (and worst) of conducting a reader's poll

Some workers (the top talent) are engaging in more exploratory job seeking. We’re hearing from employers that the rate of flow of resumes and query letters and calls has increased, a sign of restlessness and hopefulness on the part of unhappy workers. Sensing the improving economy and new job opportunities that will be opening, the… Continue Reading Herman Trend Alert: Exploratory Job Seeking
