    Published: Thu, Aug 28, 2014

  • EDITORIAL: Springs City Council should stop, just say no to recreational pot

    The Gazette editorial
    Published: Wed, Aug 27, 2014

    Published: Wed, Aug 27, 2014

    A critical presidential responsibility What's the outlook for ISIS, America and President Barack Obama? United States interests, allies and even our homeland itself are going to get hit by these radical Muslims. Obama's almost complete absence of responsible leadership on defense and...

    The Gazette editorial
    Updated: Tue, Aug 26, 2014

    Gov. John Hickenlooper should decide right away whether Nathan Dunlap lives or dies. No more should this man's life be a political football. No one had a bigger stake in November's gubernatorial election than Dunlap. At least that's what everyone thought, before CompleteColorado.com...

    I am waiting for the proverbial "Just kidding" from one or more of our community's leaders. The article on the front of last Wednesday's Gazette - "Springs Leaders Rally For Carson" (Aug. 20) - has to be a spoof. There is no way anyone with business acumen would believe that a...

    Updated: Sun, Aug 24, 2014

    Optics is a word you hear a lot these days. One could say, "looks like," but that would not sound nearly as cool as optics. Consider the optics of law enforcement looking like our armed forces; so-called militarization of our police. This is getting a lot of attention because of the...
