I am responding to your <a href="http://www.csbj.com/story.cfm?ID=15287">opinion</a> <a href="http://www.csbj.com/story.cfm?id=15304">page</a> <a href="http://www.csbj.com/story.cfm?id=15181">item</a> regarding the U.S. Olympic Committee.
I, too, am frustrated by the lack of forthcoming information about the backroom deals City Council is cutting with USOC. However, I am not lamenting the loss of the organization. I decry the use of taxpayer funds to appease the insider trading. Continue Reading Why waste time and taxpayer money trying to keep USOC?

CSBJ is way off the mark on TABOR, Gallagher

Comments Off

I must take issue with the CSBJ article placing blame for county, city and states financial woes directly on TABOR (the Taxpayers Bill of Rights) and the Gallagher Amendment.
You make one correct statement regarding the property taxes. Yes residential is not paying its fair share.
TABOR was enacted as a result of spending being out of control by government. You fail to look at the real cause of imagined financial difficulty. Let’s look at the rain tax (storm water enterprise). Continue Reading CSBJ is way off the mark on TABOR, Gallagher

County commissioner: Et tu, CSBJ?

Comments Off

I was most disappointed to read “The baddest of the bad,” Sept. 28 article in the Colorado Springs Business Journal.
In it, the Terry R. Harris Judicial Complex is singled out for public ridicule by an unnamed would-be architectural critic. This anonymous person also sullies the reputation of the man whose name adorns this public structure. Continue Reading County commissioner: Et tu, CSBJ?

Regarding the Aug. 17 (“Roth’s column misses the mark”) and Aug. 24 (“LEAP leader defends system”) letters to the editor: Speaking from a layperson’s perspective (and from experience and research with a CPA and estate attorney), it never makes sense to pay the high fees associated with these type of annuities/investment products sold by insurance agents as a way to wealth. Continue Reading Fees for LEAP-type investments never make good financial sense

Roth’s column misses the mark

Comments Off

<em>Dear Editor:</em><br>Allan Roth’s article that reviewed the books “LEAP” and “Missed Fortune 101” took a wrong turn when he went to some Wall Street expert and ask him his opinion. Continue Reading Roth’s column misses the mark
