As scientists work on finding the right antidote for COVID19 and its derivations, who is assigned to work on the equivalent cure for stupidity? After two years of daily repetition of the words “get vaccinated, wear a mask, practice good hygiene, etc.” what is so difficult for some to underst…

I've gotta hand it to you guys. Despite the 2020 election fading in the rear-view mirror & the fact that Trump really is little more than a sideshow at this point, you just can't let it go. I'm referencing "The Modern World" of Oct 27-Nov 2. Who cares what Fox News says anymore than what…

Look at murder on global scale and you will see that citizens living in anti firearm nations are perfectly capable of using other devices to kill and maim each other.  The recent stabbing attack in Japan or the almost daily bombing in the Middle East. Even vehicles are used to kill others.Re…

A recent Op Ed by the Colorado Springs Gazette is titled “Trust the mama bears to improve public schools,” (October 28, 2021)  and claims that women running for local school boards are now awake at the helm to save their children from “Big Education”. This may be true, but only if the bear i…

Upon reading that the EPCCPV group cannot march in the Veterans' Day Parade when a group like the Sons of Confederate Veterans are listed on the official parade line-up, I felt troubled. If the parade organizers truly are “an apolitical organization" then they would also exclude the SCV.

I am appalled at the El Paso Republicans for bringing a known antisemite, Marjorie Taylor Greene, to Colorado Springs. Her hateful statements against Jews and minorities mirror the El Paso Republican Party. As a Jewish resident of Colorado Springs I do not support the Republican Party or Mar…

I’m writing to express my frustration and disappointment with the limited and slanted coverage you provided on the city council’s approval of apartments on Garden of the Gods Road ("City Council approves controversial apartment project on Garden of the Gods Road," June 2). From the accompany…

Our esteemed (sic) Congressman Doug Lamborn not only has judgement lapses regarding nepotism and self-aggrandizement such as his son living in the basement of the US Capitol (and this could have momentous implications considering the Congressman’s stance on the insurrection and inside inform…

Many thanks for two excellent articles in last issue, one on Panorama Park by Heidi Beedle and the other on Food Security by Patience Kabwasa. This long time reader was struck by the irony of the appearance of these two in the same issue having attended the majority of meetings planning desi…

A black man pays with his life, and how! for using a counterfeit twenty dollar bill to buy cigarettes, while white collar crime either gets swept under the carpet, or does not receive punishment in proportion to the crime committed. Clearly we all see this. We also see that neither does Dere…

Schniper and his demeaning attitude needs to get it adjusted (Re Whataburger article). Sonic, Subway, Jimmy Johns, McDonalds, Taco Bell, Taco Star, Panera, Arbys, Burger King, Panda Express etc., etc. Too many to mention that are already in the COS for many years. We are not food ignorant, b…

In response to attorney Benjamin Crump’s assertion today that ‘driving while Black’ continues to result in death, I can say from my 30+year driving experience as a Black woman  that  I have somehow managed to escape this fate and arrive to my destinations, life intact. I suspect this might b…

Our family recently moved to Boulder and just read your paper. The only accurate statement in Patience Kabwasa’s anti-American diatribe was taken from Dr. King: “Hate begets Hate”. Ms. Kabwasa clearly proves this through her own hateful statements about our fellow countrymen including “Ameri…

A couple of weeks ago, I decided to bike to the LensCrafters closest to my Colorado Springs apartment to get my glasses tightened. As I biked, I spent a lot of time on sidewalks -- the only option on roads with no bike lanes, where the cars that flooded past would have struggled to avoid hit…

You have made your endorsements for COS city council. What qualifies you to make a subjective endorsement is debatable. Your choices tell me as a voter, and all other voters,that I am ignorant and need your advice. Politics is politics. Some candidates are good citizens and have a desire to …

 Yes, this is the question of the day for Doug’s CO-3 constituents.  Besides his voting in lock-step to overturn a legal, fraud less election results and insurrection; supporting a riot to take over the OUR Capitol by armed treasonous militia; supporting a deceitful, dishonest, untruthful, c…

Under the heading about Republican, you include reference to an attempted takeover of the Capitol. Are you sure that term is adequate? Was it a takeover or was it vandalism? Evaluate, if you please. Have you actually gone out and performed an in depth examination of the party affiliation of …
