Chickenpooper and the people in Denver do not care about southeastern Colorado! Most have no idea where; Las Animas, Lamar, Granada,& Holly is!
The salaries of all elected officials should be cut first! Most are overpaid!

First, when a new prison is proposed for the area (that would bring in new jobs, and residents), tantrums are thrown because our little community is just too good to have a PRISON (gasp!) in our backyard. And now, Gov. Hickenlooper (or "Chickenpooper" as some literates will call him)proposes closing a prison and again, the area is up in arms. You can't have it both ways, folks. Either you wither away because you refuse any change that is proposed or you make your best effort to thrive with what is thrown at you. Maybe, instead of closing a prison, you would prefer to follow the lead of Detroit and close half of the schools?

For everyone who supported the Tabor ammedment, your chickens are coming home to roost. The real purpose of Tabor is to ratchet down all public services and the economic benefits they bring. To fix the probem, Tabor needs to be repealed, but no one has the political courage to propose this.

Yes, I recall the furor that was raised when a prison was proposed in the Lamar region. Now it's a lost opportunity.

Educate, Educate and Educate. It is a sin to make a living off the offender. It reminds me of Military might is always right and provides a job. Prisons are the last resort and should be replaced with schools before a person becomes an offender.
A community of care givers before a community of prison guards etc..
Sincerely,
Former staff member of a
State Prison.

What are we going to do with approx. 65 per cent that
have no desire to become reformed?
