craiggirl 5 years, 7 months ago on Parents voice concern about proposed calendar

I cannot believe how some of you talk about the teachers in our community. It's sickening. I wonder if any of you have ever experienced what it is like to be a teacher in this district or any other? I have, and it's not easy. CindyLou you question what we're paying our teachers? SERIOUSLY? We don't pay them nearly enough. They're trying to educate our students, and give them a foundation to build on. Do you think we'd get better teachers by offering to pay less?

Teachers' workdays don't start when the bell rings at 8:00 a.m. nor does it end at 3:30. They work early, late and some of them work on weekends. And Jason, you question the reduction in school supplies. Teachers are already spending their own money on supplies for school. If the district cuts the school supply budget, who do you think will be the most impacted?

Yes, parents and community members have a right and an obligation to make known their concerns. I agree that there appear to be problems with the calendar that is currently presented, but I don't agree with the criticism of the teachers.

craiggirl 6 years, 1 month ago on TMH sets move-in date; hospital to be up and running in November

Cindy - Sam answers questions for people all the time. I call her directly with questions instead of posting them here on the forum. Did you go to hospital's annual meeting? Did you attend the County Commissioner or City Council meetings at which TMH presented information? All of those meetings would have been good opportunities to ask questions and receive answers.

Just wondering if ANY of you ever attend the Hospital Board Meetings? It's fine for you all to speculate here on the forum, but that's all it is. Why don't you put some of your energy into actually finding out what is going on.


craiggirl 6 years, 5 months ago on Lila Herod: Election fraud not true

Lonely - this is exaxtly what you said "I kind of think dentedfender has a so-so point tho. I have no idea how he has voted, but I think this past presidential election, had someone from the communist ticket on there. There were so darn many different "parties" on there tho, that I could be wrong, but I do think I saw someone from that party on the ballot too???" Yuo didn't just throw out that there "might" have been someone. At least own up to your own comments.


craiggirl 6 years, 6 months ago on Lila Herod: Election fraud not true

Lonley and Dented,

Lila is correct - there were no Communist nominees on Colorado's Ballot. These are the parties that were represented: "The sixteen candidates who are on are the nominees of the Democratic, Republican, Libertarian, Green, Constitution, Socialist, Socialism and Liberation, Socialist Workers, Prohibition, America's Independent, Boston Tea, Objectivist, Pacifist, and Heartquake Parties. Two independent candidates on are Ralph Nader and Frank McEnulty; their label is "unaffiliated." his is from You can also google 2008 Colorado Presidential Nominees. As you are aware, it only cost $500 to get on Colorado's ballot. These candidates were not on every State's ballot.


craiggirl 6 years, 6 months ago on Proposal worries cyclists

Hey X - Really, how much impact do you think bicycles have on paved roads? License fees are based on the weight of the vehicle and ownership fees are based on the worth. Bikes weigh, what, 20 pounds? And what are bikes worth? I thknk you've missed the mark here.

Cindy and Tax - what suzieq posted had absolutely NO business on this forum. It was gossip not fact. The forum is not the place for baseless accusations.
