    An active shooter has been reported at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado, hours after the academy's head told cadets to 'get out' if they held racist views. At 1.23am on Saturday, the academy sent out a worrying tweet advising that the shooter was active on the grounds which sits north of Colorado Springs. 'We received reports of active shooter on Academy grounds. There are no confirmation of shots fired. Security forces are sweeping the area,' it said. There is no information of whether anyone has been injured. The threat comes just hours after Lt. General Jay Silveria called...
  • Caught on tape: Suspects involved in Springs synagogue hate crime [Colorado Springs]

    06/13/2017 9:57:14 AM PDT · by Olog-hai · 9 replies
    Colorado Springs Police are calling an act of anti semitic vandalism at a Springs synagogue a hate crime. The crime occurred around 1:30 A.M. Saturday morning at the Chabad-Lubavich Center in Colorado Springs. “Obviously you can imagine it’s a very appalling thing. In this day and age, this definitely cannot be taken lightly,” said Rabbi Moshe Liberow, who founded Chabad-Lubavich Center in 2001. Liberow was one of the first to notice two stickers on the Synagogue’s front door Saturday morning which read “Fight terror, Nuke Israel.” …

    At least one of the People’s Climate March rallies scheduled for Saturday in Colorado was canceled as a result of a major snowstorm, providing climate skeptics with a good chuckle. The Colorado Springs march, one of 12 slated to take place in Colorado, was canceled late Friday after heavy snow began falling across the Front Range, with more than a foot accumulating in some areas, as reported by Western Wire. “Sometimes Mother Nature throws you a curveball!” said the Colorado Springs Council for Justice in a Friday post 350 Colorado Springs. “We know we aren’t in the business of risking...

    A new Gazette poll shows Donald Trump dominating Hillary Clinton among El Paso County voters even as other recent surveys have the blunt-talking billionaire trailing the former first lady among voters statewide. Despite a campaign that has courted controversy almost from the start and weathered a rash of allegations about Trump's behavior toward women, the survey finds the Republican New York real estate mogul leading Democrat Clinton 50 percent to 32 percent in El Paso County in a two-way race. Trump bests Clinton 47 percent to 30 percent when Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party contender Jill Stein,...

    Frank Royal's Air Force took off at 1:38 p.m. A vintage aircraft clawed through the air followed by two chase planes, one carrying the 101-year-old pilot. The last plane in the formation brought a tear to Royal's eye. Its sleek lines still raise his pulse. He can hear the thrum of its twin engines without his hearing aids - World War II ingrained the 24-cylinder symphony permanently in his mind. He has good reason to remember the details. That very plane, a fully restored P-38 Lightning named White-33, was Royal's first love. And he flew over Colorado Springs to tell...

    A local pastor said he was told his advertisements on bus benches in Colorado Springs would be barred if they use the name Jesus. Lawson Perdue, a pastor at Charis Christian Center in west Colorado Springs for 15 years, said he was told if the name Jesus was allowed, hate messages would have to be allowed, too. Perdue said his church has been advertising on transit benches in the city for the past three years, using various Jesus-related campaigns. Two years ago benches said "Celebrate Jesus," last year benches said "Experience Jesus," and now benches say "Jesus is Lord."
