    Long-term damage from pot My deepest thanks to your editorial writers for the June 17 item entitled "Legalized pot hurting our children." The editorial should draw the attention of the hordes of misguided citizens who look upon marijuana as a sort of universal curative for...

    Freedom comes with consequences The Colorado Supreme Court got it right. Employers should have the right to fire employees for smoking marijuana, regardless of whether or not they are high on the job. The Colorado Constitution is quite clear on this issue. It states, "Nothing in this...

    Published: Wed, Jun 17, 2015

    Infrastructure will cost money As a concerned citizen and longtime resident of Colorado Springs, I continue to read and hear the no-tax-increase mentality of so many Colorado Springs "anti-tax" citizens. We complain about the potholes in our roads and crumbling bridges and yet we say...

    Published: Tue, Jun 16, 2015

    Known for drugs, not beauty There has been much discussion on whether marijuana should be legalized in Colorado Springs. I am against legalizing marijuana for Colorado Springs because of the sad experience I had when returning to Colorado Springs on an airplane. One man said to me,...

  • LETTERS: Taking perverse pleasure; following the money

    Letters
    Published: Mon, Jun 15, 2015

    Taking perverse pleasure I am fed up with people whining about telemarketing/scam/unwanted calls. Why do you expect the government to take care of it? It's so simple to do it yourself. Sign up for caller ID and get an answering machine. Then don't pick up the phone when it's a number...

    God bless the 'noise' As fellow civilians living in Rockrimmon for more than 35 years, we feel compelled to give a tongue-lashing to those neighbors of ours who continue to complain about the "noise" created by the Air Force Academy cadets flying over our homes. As a small boy, our...

    Facts are the truth In response to David J. Baker's letter to the editor ("The path of the dinosaurs," June 8): In his letter, Baker makes the blanket statement, "The GOP is concerned mainly with the interests of old, rich white men." But in reasonably typical fashion offers not a...

  • LETTERS: Why would teachers stay? Fast track too much power

    Letters
    Published: Wed, Jun 10, 2015

    Why would teachers stay? In reference to several remarks made in a recent Gazette article on teacher retention, I would comment that it is dangerous to assume teachers are leaving the field due to salaries. That takes attention away from more pressing issues and makes teachers seem...

  • LETTERS: Hidden in plain sight; has to be a better way

    Letters
    Published: Tue, Jun 9, 2015

    Hidden in plain sight I was "surprised" to learn that the Air Force Academy again has what appears to be an airfield hidden in plain sight, albeit with a refurbished I-25 observation area. In the early 1980s, when not teaching physics classes or coaching the AFA lacrosse team that...
