If he was within a certain distance of any public establishment he most certainly got a ticket. Outdoor areas that are even partially enclosed or has heavy foot traffic is considered public, and smoking is not allowed. I am not sure why the liberal weenie is debating this, it is sort of, oh I dunno....dumb?

I still caution you about moving here, ooohappday. As you can see, a lot of the people are extremely rude. I would redirect you to someplace in the heartland where the people are real and not materialistic, athiest azzholes.

Also, I recommend having jobs lines up because the economy here sucks.

Colorado Springs does have the big military base, and because of that they have weathered the recession somewhat better because of all the spending that is peripheral to military bases.
Employment in the manual labor area is not doing well because our state and Denver in particular is known as a sanctuary state, which means any manual labor job you are in competition with illegals. That also lightens the military base, because they card everyone going on base, and without proper ID the labor force by sub contractors have to be US proof.

I'd say just don't move north of downtown Denver. Here's why:

In the past, Rocky Flats (someday to be open as a wildlife refuge) built nuclear triggers for the nations nuke bombs. They made a lot of short cuts to meet deadlines and thus contaminated the whole northern area of metro Denver with plutonium.

Here's a Dept of Health page on it:

Also more here at the wildlife service - they have links so if it opens the public will realize it's contaminated still :

Actually Rocky Flats is north of Golden real close to BOULDER, but hey, where else can you see 600# jack rabbits, think the nuclear waste has something to do with it?

Yeah. Me thinks so.....

In regards to that though:

I myself won't even drink the water if I have to travel in that area. I always either bring water or buy something that was shipped in like orange juice. The thought of drinking water from Stanley Lake is a fright best left to Steven King.

I forgot to say about not moving north is because when they sprayed plutonium waste etc on fields and had a fire and a criticality, it blew plutonium east of there hence the northern area is a place I don't even live and I'm a native to Denver!

Moving to Colorado due to itÂ’s an active lifestyle. One of the most beautiful areas in the world. Most areas in the US suffered during the recent economic downturn, but the state has been aggressively promoting job creation by attracting businesses from out of state. It has one of the best infrastructures.

my husband and i are moving to colorado from tennessee with our two children, 6 and 2 years old. we are looking at the colorado springs area since we have heard that the cost of living is lower there. we are open to the other cities around the major cities also but are just not sure of where the best place would be as far as schools, work, outdoor activities such as parks and small shops and restraunts that are easy to get to to hang out with the kids whenever we feel the urge. i have been through colorado quite a few times but have not actually spent any time in the larger cities as an adult. my husband and i are 35 years old and are not into the bar scene or any parts of town that would be geared towards that crowd. we have been told to stay out of the newer towns because they lack culture and the fun and history of the older towns. we would appriciate ANY help on ideas or just opinions on whatever has to do with the area and living there. we do not have jobs yet and have just started the search. my husband has been a residential painter for the last 14 years and i was in retail management and office assistant work before i took the last 8 years off to care for my elderly grandmother before she passed and then our children. i am really looking forward to getting to colorado and back into the workforce!!! we would love any info that you have on jobs or great daycares or schools also!!! thanks SOOOOOOO much!!!!! cant wait to get to the mountains!!!!!
