Colorado Springs Had It Coming 

Letter to the Editor

My tears were large reading Bruce (Miller's) account of poor Colorado Springs. The voters said "No" to more taxes and told the city to live within its means - what a novel concept. The poor police department, which is selling its two federal surplus helicopters, has an annual budget of $85 million. Why would a Colorado city need helicopters anyway? It doesn't hurt government to have smaller budgets at times. The State of Oregon made things worse by spending every cent it could a few years ago, dramatically expanding the budget. Bruce, you must love Oregon where we seem to have tax after tax after tax.
