Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph (Newspaper) - May 31, 1986, Colorado Springs, Colorado Of my to to Bra pm 8wurdiy. May �1,1968 a t to the it. To mate a complaint or a. Soma Issue in our Community it by phoning 473-1919. Tho i i by in Mong in column Arf not necessarily the views of the Gazette Telegraph who think Tim Wirth is a moderate he is a co sponsor Resolution 515-69, which would make it a crime for citizens to Send Aid to the nicaraguan Freedom fighters and to refugees in Costa Rica and Honduras. If the Bill becomes Law Amene caught sending food Medicine an clothing to beleaguered nicaraguan exiles could be sent to jail for three years or lofted to pay $250,000 Fine or both. The Resolution imposes no sanctions against individuals to help soviet backed groups. Other co signers of the Bill include Rabid opponents of president Reagan a David Bonier and George Miller who the sandinista a have termed their Best friends in Congress. Is this the Type of compassionate action we want from the Man who could be our senator we Road be fixed this time Are we being conned again it ranks with the lottery. How Many times does it make that the Colorado gasoline tax has been raised supposedly to fix the roads will they be fixed this time taxation of poor a disgrace i waited in hunger through the entire month of May for my tax refund. I thought my refund would help me to find shelter and food in june. Much to my Chargin i have discovered that the taxes on my poverty level income is la percent not to percent and my us refund has been Cut in half. I cannot afford food shelter and taxes anymore and soon the Rich will get yet another tax break while our it Ion a poor go hungry. We can be proud of our defense buildup i our fight against communism but the taxation of the poor to Benefit our Rich is a National disgrace. Natii so apply stricter penalties Mach has been said concerning handguns and the regrettable murders at the Grandview lounge and Kwik Way store. I am in a Law enforcement related Field and believe me that stricter and More severe penalties should be applied when a firearm of any Type is used in the commission of a crime or act of violence. Gun control will Only bring about a Black Market in weapons of All Type being smuggled into the country for use by the criminal element in our society. Law abiding citizens would be unarmed and at their mercy. What amazes me is so much is being made of the Wuu Poos aspect of this Case and so Little of the Fite Airdrop involved that Are such a contributing Factor in organized crime acts of violence and the moral decay throughout our country South Ames protect Blacks in regard to the confused person who is justifying the raids by the South african government into neighbouring territories and Speaks of the right of that government to protect its citizens is it protecting the Black residents by murdering them every Day and robbing them of their rights and is the caller simply thinking of them As non existent non persons tip Tyft to pay for mistake our City Council members did it again. They Are too Chicken to Correct their own mistakes on Northgate so it will Cost the taxpayers 950,960 for a election to do it for us Tor Steelton outlay for a special election to a far better use than that h be Are going to have a special election let us include an amendment tothe City charter Tim no More taxes or Utility rate hikes without voter approval first poles must slow Down Drivers fatalities were almost double this memorial Day weekend. Not sir press. Speed kills. As Long As Drivers insist in driving 70 Mph in the interstate and so Mph in so Mph Speed Sones there will be accidents injuries and fatalities. We have to have More Law enforcement before any inf is going to change. The state has raises the traffic files Tati the traffic police have to enforce the Law. It will happen again in the 4th of july weekend unless our police decide to get Tough and slow people Down. No ohs Corss shout Polit the casette Telegraph published several pictures of calves being branded. I could not decide from the pictures who were the banana and who were the animals. No one seemed to care about the terrible pain inflicted upon the calves by the branding Iron. Soling the suffering in the eyes of those struggling calves maybe people will be More aware of what we do to the animals that share our world. Hands Sood Stein on problem few would argue that the Usa for Africa band Aid and the like re obviously very Noble and it was a Good idea to try and feed starving abroad perhaps the one thing we forgot was there i. The efforts of the starving abroad perhaps the one thing we flt thousands of people starving in our own Borders farm Aid and hands Aarons America seem to have the right idea and have got the Ball rolling but in the face of How much Money was raised for foreign countries we have a lot further to go before we even begin to get Down to the deeper Root of the problem.
