    Use TABOR money for roads Everyone agrees that the city's roads must be a first priority for the new mayor and City Council. It sounds like a vote to increase taxes is in the offing on the November ballot. Also there will be a vote on allowing the city to retain excess TABOR money. I...

    Letters
    Published: Mon, Jul 27, 2015

    Comments on city issues A couple of comments, if I may. First of all, the Bustang numbers in The Gazette are troubling. When on the average only 6 people ride every bus between the Springs and Denver on a bus designed for 50 people I have to question the sanity of the liberal, tax and...

    Scores don't reflect knowledge Friday, July 17, the Colorado Department of Education released the results of the new social studies and science test scores for fourth-, seventh- and eighth-graders. I wonder why The Gazette didn't put a picture of me next to my school's scores. This...

    Potholes and travel mercies I chuckled as I read the headlines this morning regarding the number of potholes in the city. Then I recalled my trip in March to visit my daughters who have been long- term missionaries in an African nation. I realized that the worse road for potholes in...
