Erie wins first state tournament match in program’s history – Colorado Hometown Weekly

November 15, 2019 in Boulder

DENVER – For years, this group of Erie volleyball players has spent time staring up at banners in their gym that reminded them of how the volleyball team at Erie had not been to the state tournament since 1994.

The Tigers can finally put all that talk to bed.

At the Denver Coliseum on Thursday, the Tigers took the Class 4A court as the No. 7 seed to officially make their return to the state tournament after 25 years of waiting. Then they won their first match, 22-25, 25-16, 25-16, 21-25, 15-10 over No. 10 Cheyenne Mountain, to become the first team in Erie volleyball history to win a match at a state championship tournament.

“It feels like we broke a trend and are setting a new one,” Tigers senior setter Jessica Amend said. “It feels awesome to be working for it my freshman year all the way up to my senior year and then finally being here and getting that first win. We talked about making that change and how this was our year a lot.

“We had two moments when it hit us that we were good enough to be going to state. The first one was this morning when we walked through our school with everyone clapping and cheering for us. The second one was winning that match.”

Amend added that the Tigers played their first match relatively pressure-free knowing that there weren’t many, if any, external expectations for them to win and advance. They looked loose despite their first match having to be decided by a back-and-forth fifth set.

Senior Kate Sebesta led the Tigers with 15 kills, fellow senior Addyson Huber had 11, and junior Peyton Michaelson and sophomore Maggie Olson each had eight. Senior Skye Ramsey led the Tigers with 10 digs and Amend had 48 assists.

“We focus on having fun and trusting each other, and putting ourselves in hard situations in our practice gym so that when we come down here it’s the fun part,” Erie head coach Molly Creek said. “We came down here early so we could breathe it all in and enjoy it. Then we came out just ready to go.”

Because of the state tournament running behind schedule in several classifications, the Tigers’ second-round match against No. 2 Montrose was not completed before press time.

The first day of the double-elimination Olympic crossover bracket was less kind to the Mead squad. The Mavericks entered the tournament as the No. 4 overall seed in 4A and had a first-round bye. In the second round, they lost 25-23, 21-25, 25-17, 25-15 to No. 5 Coronado, and will be in danger of elimination when they take on No. 11 Thomas Jefferson at 8 a.m. on Friday.

In Class 5A, No. 5-seeded Broomfield lost 25-17, 25-18, 25-19 to No. 12 Highlands Ranch in the first round. Senior Hope Hanak-Harper led Broomfield with six kills and senior Kristina Consbruck had 17 assists. The Eagles will play No. 6 Rampart in the first round of the elimination bracket at 12:30 p.m. on Friday.

Avalanche falls 6-2 to Edmonton – Boulder Daily Camera

November 15, 2019 in Boulder

EDMONTON, Alberta — The momentum of an Avalanche winning streak got crunched, quite literally, just 25 seconds into action Thursday night in a wake-up call loss to the Oilers.

Previously red-hot Nathan MacKinnon was laid out against the boards with a monster hit by Edmonton forward Zack Kassian as a raucous crowd inside Rogers Place erupted. Avs forward Matt Calvert dropped gloves with Kassian to even the score seconds later with both players handed 5-minute major fighting penalties.

But the game tone was already set and Colorado’s first period fell apart in an eventual 6-2 defeat.

Avalanche goalie Andrew Werner, fresh off a 40-save combined shutout in Winnipeg, proved unable to recapture that magic in his first NHL start. He allowed four first-period goals on 11 shots, two within a 32-second span, and was pulled early in the second when Oilers star Connor McDavid completed a hat trick as part of his 6-point night (three goals and three assists).

Colorado (11-6-2) gained early steam when Andre Burakovsky handled a crossing pass from Nazem Kadri in the offensive zone and rocketed a snapshot past Edmonton goalie Mike Smith. It put the Avs up 1-0 less than two minutes into the opening period with short-lived optimism.

The Oilers (13-6-2) responded with a shot from forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins from 20-feet out for the tie. Edmonton later went on the power play as the result of a Tyson Jost tripping penalty, and McDavid made Colorado pay with a wrister from the circle past Werner. The rout was on. Edmonton converted four of its six power-play opportunities.

The Oilers scoring frenzy was fueled by McDavid (three), Nugent-Hopkins (two) and Kassian. Colorado’s second-period change in net to Andre Bibeau, recalled from the AHL-Eagles on Wednesday, did little to halt the onslaught. Bibeau gave up one goal on 10 Edmonton shots. Neither team scored in the third period.

The Avs’ six total allowed goals marked a new season-high and matched the same number it had given up combined over three previous wins. Burakovsky was among the few bright spots Thursday scoring both of Colorado’s goals; capping his impressive night with a rebound goal in the second period. Forward Pierre-Eduoard Bellemare made his return to play after missing the past two games in the concussion protocol.

Colorado now must move on quickly with a road test Saturday at Vancouver as the third game of a five-game road trip.

Motion filing continues in Lafayette City Council employment discrimination case – Colorado Hometown Weekly

November 15, 2019 in Boulder

In the latest round of filings in the ongoing legal dispute between Lafayette and resident Andrew J. O’Connor, the city is seeking to quash a motion to have Magistrate Judge Kristin L. Mix removed from overseeing O’Connor’s employment discrimination complaint. Meanwhile, Cliff Smedley, a co-plaintiff in O’Connor’s complaint, did not sign off on O’Connor’s latest response, saying he disagreed with the language it uses.

On Oct. 28, O’Connor and Lafayette resident Smedley filed a motion to dismiss Mix for having “misandry, lack of impartiality, personal bias and prejudice” against the men because they are representing themselves in court.

The men also filed a complaint of judicial misconduct or disability, in addition to a request for investigation with the Office of the Circuit Executive and with the Honorable Phillip Brimmer, chief judge of the district court.

On Nov. 8, Lafayette City Council and Mayor Alexandra Lynch filed a response to O’Connor and Smedley’s Oct. 28 motion to dismiss Mix.

Marni Kloster, attorney for City Council and Lynch, declined to comment on the motions.

City Council and Lynch opposed dismissing Mix and said because O’Connor cannot state any “legitimate or reasonable grounds” to disqualify Mix, and because he failed to demonstrate any bias, prejudice or lack of impartiality, the motion to dismiss the judge should not be upheld.

“In order for recusal to be proper, (O’Connor and Smedley) must provide more than speculation demonstrating a question as to Magistrate Judge Mix’s impartiality,” City Council and Lynch’s response states.

O’Connor on Tuesday filed a response to City Council and Lynch. However, Smedley did not sign off on it.

Smedley said he did not agree with language O’Connor used in the response and chose not to be a part of it.

“(O’Connor) sent over a first draft and what he had wrote was unacceptable,” Smedley said. “I told him I wouldn’t sign it. I just need to get away from the guy.”

Smedley said he’s exploring options to withdraw his name from the motions with O’Connor and potentially represent himself.

Cliff Grassmick / For Hometown Weekly

Cliff Smedley

He said O’Connor used language similar to that of a June motion, which alleged City Council acted unethically, engaged in misconduct and violated the Colorado Rules of Professional Conduct and argued their employment discrimination complaint was legally sufficient and should not be dismissed. Smedley contacted the city after the motion was filed and said he did not authorize what was written.

O’Connor alleges Mix “despises” pro se litigants, those who represent themselves in court, and cannot give a fair trial because of her alleged bias and prejudice against himself and Smedley.

The employment discrimination stems from vacancies that were created on City Council when other members resigned, to which O’Connor and Smedley were not appointed.

Former Councilmember Gustavo Reyna resigned his seat in July 2018. That August, O’Connor applied for the position and was not interviewed. Council appointed JD Mangat, during a meeting before a smaller group of applicants were to be interviewed. It’s not clear why City Council appointed Mangat without interviewing other candidates.

Then, in January, former Lafayette Mayor Christine Berg resigned, creating another open seat. In February, both O’Connor and Smedley applied for that position.

The two filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado on Feb. 22, alleging all the other applicants, excluding themselves, were interviewed for the seats. Later that month, current Councilmember Carolyn Cutler, who has prior City Council and mayoral experience in Lafayette, was appointed.

That complaint was dismissed April 4.

The April complaint also alleges the board and mayor violated the American with Disabilities Act and the plaintiffs’ First Amendment rights in retaliation for their past criticisms of Council and members during the 2017 campaigns. It further claims Lynch was personally involved in the decision to “retaliate” against the men.

Attempt to emulate Boulder 1% growth limit across Front Range stirs controversy

November 15, 2019 in Boulder

A longtime Boulder rule that limits housing expansion in the city to no more than 1% annually could be emulated across almost the entire Front Range if a Colorado man has his way.

Golden resident Daniel Hayes is seeking a final green light from the state to circulate a petition for signatures in hopes of making the 2020 ballot. Should his initiative be certified and passed by voters across the state, it would restrict increases in the number of dwelling units to 1% of existing homes per year in 11 counties, and all cities and towns within them, including the rest of Boulder County, along with Broomfield, Denver, Adams, Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert, El Paso, Jefferson, Larimer and Weld counties.

“This is a lifetime goal of mine,” Hayes, 72, said. He was set to circulate a petition for a similar rule in 2018 before withdrawing it. “I believe that this growth is ruining our state. I’m a big backer of wildlife. … They’re building too many apartment buildings. We have enough apartment buildings to last us 10 or 15 years.”

The possible new rule could cause prices to skyrocket in an already expensive regional real estate market, crippling efforts to rein in the area’s affordable housing shortage by boosting supply of both market-rate units, and homes with prices tied to the area median income, according to Drew Hamrick, senior vice president of government affairs for the Apartment Association of Metro Denver.

Since Boulder in 1976 instituted a 2% limit on dwelling unit increases in city limits, the idea has proliferated. The city revised it down to 1% in 1995, the same year Hayes said he pushed a growth limit of the same rate into effect in Golden. This summer, Lakewood voters approved an almost identical municipal law local officials are in the process of implementing.

But for the nearly six years from 2014 through this week, the rule has had a limited impact in Boulder. Hundreds of dwellings have been approved through exemptions for certain housing types, while new residences that count toward the annual growth cap never came close to approaching it, according to city data on the rule, which works by each year making available a certain number of “allocations,” or stamps of approval for new units to receive building permits and ensure compliance with the 1% limit.

Even when combining new homes exempt from the growth limit with those that count toward the 1% cap, the city approved units equaling just 67.8% of 3,529 allocations available over the six-year period. Development projects are seldom held up by the growth management rule, officials said.

Boulder Daily Camera

Boulder tweaked its rule in 2000 to add exceptions so certain types of residential development would not count as part of the 1% limit, including permanently affordable housing, dwellings in mixed-use buildings, and homes built in areas rezoned from non-residential purposes to allow for market-rate units within developments that have 35% of units dedicated as affordable. Homes removed and replaced within three years by new development containing four of fewer units do not require new dwelling allocations that count toward the limit. Housing built by University of Colorado Boulder for students, staff and faculty, and accessory dwelling units also do not require new unit allocations.

Former Boulder City Councilmember Steve Pomerance, who has advocated slow-growth policies, believes the city should get rid of the growth management system in favor of an approach that uses zoning to allow growth at levels tolerable to neighborhoods.

“It is also ridiculously complicated, and should be abandoned, in my opinion,” Pomerance said. “It makes far more sense to do proper zoning that the affected neighbors can live with, and adequate development impact fees and public facilities requirements that address peoples’ concerns over traffic, crowding.”

Housing unit increases have eclipsed 1% far more often on the Front Range outside Boulder over the last eight years, based on U.S. Census Bureau estimates cited by the fiscal note attached to Hayes’ proposed ballot initiative. In the 11 counties the measure targets for growth caps, 1% housing unit increases were exceeded 39% of the time, while the proposed limit was exceeded 57% of the time in municipalities that would be impacted, the note states.

Hamrick, with the apartment association, pointed to other aspects of Boulder’s housing market, such as the open space system’s prevention of sprawl and the city’s building height limits, as contributors to growth of less than 1% and expensive local housing costs. The 1% rule across the rest of the Front Range would be a big obstacle to making the state’s housing portfolio more affordable, Hamrick said.

“If you want to cut housing supply, that means you’re increasing the price,” he said. “You can’t talk out of both sides of your mouth. You have to figure out which of those policies are important to you. … If you shift growth from one place to another, when these growth limitations just happen locally, you’re dictating that people have to live further away from the jobs they’re chasing. That has a traffic impact. Living space is less traffic-impacting than other uses that then take that space if you can’t build a housing unit. The simple fact remains that if you can’t have your house close to your job, you’re going to drive more miles and congest more roads in the process.”

Hayes’ proposal appears more strict than Boulder in terms of the residential construction exceptions it would grant to the 1% growth rule. The ballot initiative would allow for 0.15% additional expansion above 1% for affordable housing and senior housing, meaning the biggest legal growth rate for each individual town, city and county targeted would be 1.3% a year, if affordable and senior homes took up their full extra allotments.

The ballot initiative supporter believes the restrictions on booming housing growth in Boulder have been positive for the city, but acknowledged it has driven housing costs upward.

“I think it’s been good for the city,” Hayes said. “Why does Boulder have all those jobs? Because of the low housing growth due to land set aside for commercial and industrial. It’s increased the amount of jobs there, it’s set aside land for jobs, aside from the fact that houses cost more.”

Hamrick is skeptical. He argued that even when pricier, luxury housing is built along the Front Range that it helps housing affordability by preventing people who can afford the higher-end homes from out-competing lower income earners for more affordable units.

“We can’t just tell all these newcomers they have to live in tents,” Hamrick said.

Boulder Opera’s ‘A Taste of Carmen’ brings spice, scandal to Caffè Sole – Boulder Daily Camera

November 14, 2019 in Boulder

In April, members of Boulder Opera led folks on a musical bar crawl through the Pearl Street Mall with stops at The Attic, Centro, License No. 1 and the West End Tavern. This month, the talented tribe is bringing an abbreviated and updated version of the classic French opera “Carmen” to Boulder’s Caffè Sole, for the first time, on Friday and Saturday.

“The role of Carmen is the dream role for many mezzos,” said Dianela Acosta, who will embody the fiery gypsy at this weekend’s shows. “It’s been in my repertoire for years and I feel lucky to have sung it many times.”

Boulder Opera/ Courtesy photo

Dianela Acosta, center, stars as Carmen in “A Taste of Carmen” that will be performed Friday and Saturday at Caffè Sole.

Lust-filled and intriguing, the popular opera dating back to 1875, written by Georges Bizet, is sure to pair nicely with a bottle of Cabernet, Chicken Confit and the Mediterranean olive plate that graces Sole’s menu.

“Carmen is passion, jealousy, betrayal and the ultimate femme fatale,” Acosta said.  “Singing this role at an intimate venue like Caffè Sole is a treat because I can play the nuances that you wouldn’t be able to do for a bigger venue.”

If the steady popularity surrounding shows like NBC’s “Dateline,” proves anything, it’s that viewers love a juicy love triangle that ends fatally. Set in Spain, “Carmen” is really not all that different as it follows the story of naïve soldier Don José who abandons his military duties and leaves his childhood sweetheart for the ultimate temptress Carmen. Carmen then takes up with bullfighter Escamillo, a betrayal that drives José to murder her.

“She is truly a free spirit, who will always do what she pleases,regardless of the consequences,” Dianela said. “It’s so liberating as a singer/actress to play Carmen. It really allows me to push the limits on what’s appropriate or not. She flirts because she can and she wants to, and doesn’t care what anybody thinks of her. That’s a lesson there.”

In between the moments of pure drama, unrelenting obsession and comedic relief, audiences can take in the powerhouse songs that have made this story one of the most adored in the canon to date.

Dianela Acosta stars as “Carmen” in Boulder Opera’s “A Taste of Carmen” that will be performed on Friday and Saturday at Caffè Sole.

“The music has always been my draw to ‘Carmen,’” said Phoenix Gayles, stage director of “A Taste of Carmen.” “Even if you know nothing of opera, this music is recognizable as it is featured in mainstream society all the time — in commercials and movies and many other platforms. The story is deep and relatable, with some lightheartedness sprinkled throughout. Fun for the whole family.”

While the meat of “Carmen” remains intact, Gayles took creative freedom by reworking the classic.

“Because we are doing an adapted version of ‘Carmen,’ I have written new dialogue to change the way the story is told,” Gayles said. “Because of the intimate setting, the grandeur that is the full version of ‘Carmen’ would not have worked. This process was very fun and also challenging in all the best ways.”

It makes sense that Caffè Sole, a spot known for its rotating selection of jazz musicians, would host such a production. But, the art-filled coffee shop, in South Boulder’s Table Mesa Shopping Center, isn’t the only non-theater venue Boulder Opera would like to see its shows unfold.

“We would love to bring this and many other operas and shows to as many places as we can,” Gayles said. “Sharing this art with the world is the goal of any company, especially Boulder Opera. We want to make opera accessible to all generations and presenting in venues, such as this, makes that a reality.”

Acosta said: “‘Carmen’ is a timeless opera with a timeless story and it is so popular because of the many beautiful melodies that even if you don’t know opera you will know these melodies. It’s a true favorite for all our audiences. People come to see it again because they can’t get enough of it, and if they’ve never seen ‘Carmen,’ they fall in love with the opera.”
