    We continue to receive good news about the economy. But one part of the story has not received the attention it deserves. That part is charitable giving. The year 2007 set a record high for contributions. But the recession brought the trend to a halt. In 2008, charitable giving...

    Our country's military men and women serving overseas should have the same rights and privileges that we enjoy stateside. One of those fundamental rights is the right to vote in our republican system. A bill I'm sponsoring this year in the House of Representatives, HB 1130, ensures...

  • EDITORIAL: During rest of term, Obama will serve as President No

    Published: Sat, Feb 28, 2015

    As he enters the final phase of his term in office, President Barack Obama now has a mostly negative role in the governing process. His suggestions for transformative policy changes are nearly irrelevant now that his party has squandered the firm control of Congress it enjoyed in 2009....

    Updated: 21 hr ago

    "Run Scott run, run Scott run." So went the mantra at CPAC Thursday evening as Gov. Scott Walker, R-Wis., completed a speech that frequently brought a crowd of thousands to their feet. If he's the current rock star of the right, it's because he has governed in a manner that has made...

  • EDITORIAL: President kills jobs with his pen

    The Gazette editorial
    Updated: Thu, Feb 26, 2015

    Published: Thu, Feb 26, 2015

    We're on the verge of an economic renaissance few could have predicted a year ago for Colorado Springs. Things are looking so hot that recent announcements of two indoor water parks on the city's north side almost get lost in the mix. Oh, we know what the naysayers think. Water parks...

    Published: Thu, Feb 26, 2015

    While you're reading this and sipping your morning coffee, a surgeon is cutting four holes in my abdomen. I'm lying unconscious on an operating table and paid $2,500 for the privilege. An outrage, you say? Hardly. I was happy to do it. I understand it's not fashionable nowadays for...

    Appreciation for Springs airport I want to write a quick letter because I am not sure who to thank. I love flying from the Colorado Springs Airport when I can afford it and when I can't get a direct flight out of Denver. It is a luxury but an affordable luxury. The Colorado Springs...

    Published: Tue, Feb 24, 2015

    Sometimes war is necessary Dr. Ben Carson's opinion (The Gazette, February 19) was right on target. As a veteran of the United States Air Force, it is refreshing to hear from a potential presidential candidate that actually "gets it" when it comes to waging war against an enemy. Our...
