Completed in 1963, the USAF Academy's Cadet Chapel, in Colorado Springs, is reportedly the most popular man made attraction in Colorado.  Once I saw the interior, I understood why.  I'll try to explain with three pictures that I took this weekend.          Sondra   Sincerely,     Sondra Meyer Peterson Colorado Horse Property Specialist   Colorado.  See It.  Experience It.  Live It

College sports is one of the perks that comes along with living in Colorado Springs.   Colorado Springs is home to Air Force Falcons, Colorado College and University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.  Last week, Air Force football fans were very unhappy.  Many left the stadium before the game ended.  Notre Dame beat them soundly.  Of course my son and all of the other Notre Dame fans were very happy. (ok,  I'll admit it.  I cheered for Notre Dame.  A lot of my money has gone to Notre Dame.)    Today was different.  Army and Air Force were better matched.   Fans from both sides had a great time.  Well, up until it was clear that West Point was losing.  I liked the West Point fans.  They were more like Texas Aggie fans.  They supported their team.  They didn't leave in mass when it looked ...

Solar Power Plant opens at Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs CO One of the wonderful results of the controversial American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA ~ also commonly called The Stimulus Package), is that an $18.3 Million grant was awarded to the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs CO to build a Six Megawatt Solar Power Plant.  They broke ground in November of 2010, and the plant became functional in April of 2011. The AFA enlisted the aid of the Colorado Springs Utilities, who in turn hired SunPower Corp. to design and oversee the construction of the facility.  The solar panels have a high efficiency SunPower solar tracking system.  They follow the arc of the sun during the day at the peak, most expensive, highest power usage time at the Academy.  Th...
