  • Fort Collins medical device company seeking $59,000 in capitalFort Collins medical device company seeking $59,000 in capital

    FORT COLLINS — MyoCardioCare Inc., a medical device company, has raised $24,550 in an equity offering. The company is seeking about $59,000, according to a Form D filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Jan. 5 although the company’s principal shareholders have committed to providing additional funding as well, chairman, CEO and principal shareholder Frank Terrizzi told BizWest. MyoCardioCare makes an invasive medical device that can be more effective for saving a patient who is having a cardiac arrest. Terrizzi told BizWest that the current treatments for cardiac arrest — an event where the heart stops completely, unlike a heart attack where the heart functions at a diminished capacity — like CPR or shock paddles, only have about a 20 percent success rate, and even then the patient often experiences significant damage. MyoCardioCare’s device involves a cup that goes around the heart through a chest incision. The cup is connected to an external drive unit via a tube. The external unit provides power to the heart to help it restart. Terrizzi said that the process of getting MyoCardioCare’s device in use in hospitals is a long one. “We’re trying to change the paradigm to improve the outcome percentage,” he said. The company is currently seeking funding from large government agencies that could help the device go through FDA clinical trials and on to market.   The post Fort Collins medical device company seeking $59,000 in capital appeared first on BizWest.

    WINDSOR — Officials of The Good Samaritan Society — Water Valley Senior Living Resort community in Windsor, on Friday said they plan to add two buildings to provide assisted-living and memory-care services. The 56,000-square-foot expansion of its existing community at 805 Compassion Drive will consist of a two-story building with 40 beds for assisted-living, and a one-story building with 16 beds for memory-care patients. “The Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society continues to seek opportunities where we can expand our outreach to a vulnerable population needing care, comfort and security,” said John McElderry, administrator for the Good Samaritan Society – Water Valley, in a prepared statement. “As part of the Northern Colorado community, we have helped share God’s love with many seniors and their families who were facing difficult choices and transitions.” The memory-care building will use a “family-home” model with private resident rooms with a private bath centered around a shared community/dining room area, enclosed resident courtyard, resident programming areas and staff support spaces. The assisted-living community will have common areas for residents on both floors of the building to provide activity programming and support services. The common areas include a chapel/multipurpose activity room, dining room, fitness area, salon, resident common areas and staff support areas throughout the building. A general contractor has yet to be selected, and the cost of the project has yet to be determined, McElderry said. The campus currently has 120 apartments and four duplexes geared for independent senior living. The Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society, based in Sioux Falls, S.D.,  is a nonprofit organization that provides senior care and services with more than 200 locations nationwide.   The post Expansion planned at Water Valley Senior Living Resort in Windsor appeared first on BizWest.

  • ‘Low snowfall’ drops Vail Resorts’ ski traffic 11 percent‘Low snowfall’ drops Vail Resorts’ ski traffic 11 percent

    BROOMFIELD — Skier visits to resorts under the Vail Resorts Inc. (NYSE: MTN) umbrella are down 10.8 percent through Jan. 8, compared with the same period a year ago. The downturn is attributed to “historic low snowfall,” according to a statement from Rob Katz, chief executive of Vail Resorts, which has its headquarters in Broomfield. Vail Resorts reported that lift-ticket revenue at the company’s North American resorts, was up 1.6 percent. But ski school revenue was down 4.5 percent and dining revenue was down 8.7 percent compared with a similar period of the prior year. “Given the truly historic low snowfall across our western U.S. resorts, we are pleased with our results to date, which reflect the stability provided by our season pass program and the investments we have made in our resorts,” Katz said in a prepared statement. “The 2017/2018 ski season had a very challenging start across our western U.S. resorts due to poor conditions in the early season that continued through the holiday period, reducing both local and destination visitation and spending. In November and December, snowfall season to date in Vail, Beaver Creek and Park City was the lowest level recorded in over 30 years and in Vail and Beaver Creek snowfall is over 50 percent lower than the next lowest season, and Tahoe’s snowfall was 69 percent below the 20-year average.” He said conditions have improved in the past week, but conditions are still behind what is typical for the resorts in the Vail Resorts system. Vail Resorts operates 11 mountain resorts and three urban ski areas. Resorts include Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge and Keystone in Colorado; Park City in Utah; Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood in the Lake Tahoe area of California and Nevada; Whistler Blackcomb in British Columbia, Canada; Stowe in Vermont; Perisher in New South Wales, Australia; Wilmot Mountain in Wisconsin; Afton Alps in Minnesota and Mount Brighton in Michigan.

  • Handmade in Boulder CountyHandmade in Boulder County

    Handcrafted functional goods By Lisa Truesdale For this ongoing series, we profile a handful of dedicated makers—highly skilled artists from all over the county who create non-commercial, handcrafted functional goods that you can find at local artisan shows and small, independent boutiques and galleries. We’re amazed by their creativity and dedication to their craft, and we know you will be, too. If you know of a maker we should profile in an upcoming issue, please email mary@brockpub.com. Wood Art by Lin Linda Mutz’s craft fair display When Linda Mutz realized that the eight aspen trees in her Longmont backyard were dying, she felt pretty sad. They had to come out of the ground, definitely, but she just couldn’t let them go. So she commandeered a full bay of her garage and got started on sawing, drilling, woodburning and painting 1-inch sections of trunk. Her natural creativity—which she used every day during her 30-year career as an elementary school teacher—was unleashed in a completely different way. She emerged from the garage with a wide variety of repurposed wood art that she now sells at local craft fairs and by word of mouth. Her creations save wood that otherwise would be headed for the chipper, and morph it into artwork that generates stories and emotions. “I’m not shy about dumpster-diving for discarded pallets, rescuing fallen tree branches from the side of the road, or begging for distressed boards from old fencing and barns,” she says. One customer recently shrieked with delight when she saw a piece adorned with abalone hearts and the word “Aloha” burned into the wood; it reminded her of her father, who was from Hawaii. Another satisfied buyer walked away from Mutz’s booth as the proud new owner of a sign proclaiming “Happy Wife, Happy Life.” While Mutz works on a new website for online ordering and requests for personalized pieces, she can be reached at woodartbylin@comcast.net. Bristé Foods Steven Puleio at work in his kitchen Life has taken Steven Puleio from Boulder to Boston as he pursued a variety of careers—vocal performer, accountant and chef. But he finally decided that his roots were firmly planted in the food industry. “I just kept getting pulled back to food; it’s a passion of mine that I can’t ignore,” he says. Then, he realized something else: “I missed Boulder too much. I was testing and developing recipes for America’s Test Kitchen in Boston, and it was great, but it wasn’t Boulder. I decided I wanted to come back here, but as my own boss.” So the classically trained chef returned to Boulder and began creating his own line of gourmet foods, crafted exclusively from local and sustainable sources. The Bristé Foods lineup (which changes according to produce availability) currently features seven flavors of pickled beets, five varieties of cucumber pickles, two types of giardiniera, four pestos, and his signature Bacon Jam, which he says is perfect on burgers or pancakes, with eggs, or on a charcuterie board. “Living in Boulder has shown me the beauty of the farm-to-table movement,” Puleio says. “Cooking with fresh ingredients from local farms is so much better than getting them from questionable sources.” Find out more at www.bristefoods.com, and read about his personal chef/catering business at www.chefsteverino.com. Rootfoot Rootfoot essential oils Before Laura Huth started Rootfoot, she really did her research. She handcrafts her high-grade, plant-based essential oils, unisex fragrances and incenses in the Boulder County countryside, taking into account the lunar cycles, local organic farms and eco projects, and the principles of aromatherapy, yoga and Ayurveda. “My brand is focused on sharing plant wisdom with others in modern form,” Huth explains. “This helps to facilitate a direct connection between humans and the earth.” Rootfoot’s signature work, she says, is the collection of fragrances centered around spirit animals, so that you can “choose the ones that resonate with you and feel their intuitive guidance.” She worked closely with an intuitive healer to select the animals that most represent what is needed by individuals and society as tools for healing and transformation. The Bear fragrance, for example, invites strong grounding forces, healing and introspection, while Eagle opens the mind to spiritual awareness, leadership and perspective. Shop Rootfoot online at www.rootfoot.com; locally at Wonder Juice (946 Pearl St., Boulder), Raj Yoga + Meditation (275 Glenwood Drive, Boulder), Yore (381 Main St., Longmont) and Museum of Contemporary Art (1485 Delgany St., Denver. Mark Rossier Pottery Turquoise Bird jug Two important factors drew Mark Rossier to pottery. He was “smitten with clay” after graduating with an art degree, and his then-girlfriend persuaded him to move with her to Taos. There, under the tutelage of Stephen Kilborn, a well-known artist, he learned what the life of a potter was all about and how to think about being a working artist. “After working with Steve,” Rossier says, “I was truly hooked. In a way, pottery chose me. In some ways it’s a crazy way to make a living, and it doesn’t seem like a rational career choice for the 21st century.” Today, Rossier works from his “dream studio” in a barn behind his house in Niwot, with a small showroom that’s open to the public. His functional mugs, platters, jugs, bowls and more can be purchased there, through his website (www.markrossierpottery.com) or at events like studio tours and gallery exhibits. He’s also involved with an effort called “The Mug Initiative,” which aims to replace boring, advertising-driven, machine-made mugs “devoid of human warmth” with individually crafted pottery mugs. Rossier believes that “pottery simply and elegantly reminds us of our humanity.” “Pottery is old—I love that,” he says. “It’s a touchstone of human development. It is how we read our human history from the time before we had written language. I not only feel like a part of a traditional art form, but I feel like I am intimately connected to a traditional form of language through pottery. I am helping to continue to document human existence because I know that the shards of my work will be around long after we are all gone.” Björn’s Colorado Honey Sweet, delicious honey is also good for you—especially when it contains propolis extract. Propolis, a compound that bees produce, has been used for thousands of years for its medicinal benefits; it’s antifungal, antiviral, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. Pontus Jakobsson is the head beekeeper at Björn’s Colorado Honey, which is based in Boulder. He grew up in Sweden and learned everything he knows from his grandfather, Björn, and his father, Torbjörn. The company makes three types of specialty honey: Colorado Honey (a traditional, fluid variety), Raw Whipped Honey (smooth and spreadable) and Propolis Honey. It also offers hand-poured beeswax candles, pollinator-friendly wildflower seeds, and honey-based skincare products—even toothpaste—imported from Europe. “It makes me so proud to carry on my father’s and my grandfather’s beekeeping legacy here in the beautiful state of Colorado,” Jakobsson says. Björn’s Colorado Honey is available through the company’s website, www.bjornscoloradohoney.com, and at the National Western Stock Show Trade Show (Jan. 6-21).

  • Theater Review: RedTheater Review: Red

    By Beki Pineda RED – Written by John Logan; Directed by Craig Bond.  Presented by Vintage Theatre (1468 Dayton, Aurora) through January 7, 2018.  Tickets available at 303-856-7830 or vintagetheatre.com. John Logan, the playwright, has had a prolific and varied writing career.  Starting with plays about the famed Leopold and Loeb case (NEVER THE SINNER) and the Lindbergh baby kidnapping (HAUPTMAN), he moved to screenwriting, penning such noted movies as GLADIATOR, THE AVIATOR, STAR TREK: NEMESIS, HUGO and a couple of James Bond scripts. Trading action for art, he returned to the stage and wrote RED which appeared on Broadway in 2010 featuring Alfred Molino as Mark Rothko and Eddie Redmayne as his assistant.  Coincidentally, he also wrote the one-woman show Emma Messenger is bringing back for one night only to Vintage – I’LL EAT YOU LAST – on December 30th. RED chronicles a specific period of noted painter Mark Rothko’s life during the late 1950s.  He had been painting and teaching for over thirty years and had been commissioned to create a series of works for the Four Seasons Restaurant, which was being constructed in the new Seagram Building in New York.  He has hired Ken, a new assistant, to do the prep work and keep the studio cleaned up.  This character is probably a compilation of several of his assistants but serves the purpose of allowing Rothko to express his feelings about his paintings and his place in the art world.  In his 50s by now, Rothko has begun to see the decline of his form of expressionism and the rise of a new (to him) more frivolous style called Pop Art.  Even though he professes he is not Ken’s teacher, father or mentor, just his employer, he cannot help himself from attempting to broaden Ken’s perspective on life and art in general.  As the two year span of the production progresses, an easy routine develops between them, most apparent as they work together on creating a base coat for a new painting…the most joy filled moments of the play. Rothko’s paintings during the time were most often cubes of color juxtaposed against a darker base.  While he enjoys the financial gains of popularity, he also decries the stigma of artistic commercialism, a hypocritical point that Ken makes later in the play.  Rothko feared the day when the “black would overtake the color”, a symbolic remark on the loss of talent, sight, life.  He felt the greatest tragedy would be to “grow superfluous” in your own lifetime.  After taking a dramatic step with regards to this work, the play ends as it begins with a man standing in front of an empty canvas, contemplating. A giant role undertaken by a gifted actor, Phil Luna embodies Rothko with an ego and humanity flowing from the same source of experience.  Phil’s own life in art informs his portrayal of Rothko and gives it power.  He finds the irony, the desperation, even the humor in Rothko’s state of mind.  He does become a father/older brother/teacher to his student in this enterprise.  J.W. Spina as Ken provides a listening sounding board and grows throughout the play from nervous novice to experienced critic who throws Rothko’s remarks back in his own face. In most productions, the audience never sees Rothko’s style of art.  In fact, it is not permitted by the terms of the license.  However, for this production, the students in the Contemporary Art class at Denver Waldorf School (under the guidance of teacher Kimberly Martin) were given the experience of creating Rothko-like paintings to be used in the production.  Images of these paintings were projected against the back wall of the small theatre giving the actors and audience alike a point of reference. The art studio set has the familiar turpentine, oil based paint, old food look and smell about it.  There is spilled paint on the floor and walls; the equipment for framing and providing base coats is there; the spacial dimensions are right for creating large canvasses.  And yet, it is an intimate gathering space.  The music provided for the time spent painting also emphasizes the differences between the two men.  Ken likes the easy rhythms of jazz while Rothko’s music is heavy and dark like his color blocks. An ambitious undertaking for Vintage Theatre that succeeds. A WOW factor of 8.5 The post Theater Review: Red appeared first on GetBoulder.com.

  • Theater Review: WaitressTheater Review: Waitress

    By Beki Pineda WAITRESS – Music and Lyrics by Sara Bareilles; Book by Jessie Nelson; Directed by Diane Paulus.  Presented by the Denver Center for the Performing Arts Broadway (Buell Theater, 15th and Curtis, Denver) through December 31, 2017.  Tickets available at 303-893-4100 or denvercenter.org. You’ve all seen the same commercials for this musical that I have on TV, so you know what I mean when I say that the promos do not do the production justice.  They do not make it seem like the exciting, fun, vivacious musical it really is.  I totally understand the whole “Woman Power” theme which is given full rein in the finished product.  But a lot of the fun is found in the male characters and their interaction with the ladies on board.  None of that is explored in the promos.  So, take my word for it. The show is a lot funnier and a lot stronger than the promos promise. All three waitresses working at Joe’s Diner have their specific set of problems.  Dawn (Lenne Klingaman) is shy and afraid of men.  Becky (Charity Angel Dawson) is married to an older invalid and must spend her off-work time caring for him.  Jenna (Desi Oakley), the pie maker, is married to and pregnant by a brute of a man who mistreats her and takes her money.  He is so insecure, he makes her promise that she won’t love her baby more than she loves him.  But she has a touch of genius about her when it comes to pie making and begins to devise a way out of her situation using those skills.  By the end of the musical evening, all three women have found a way out of their collective straits and are on a path to fulfillment.  Watching them get there is the fun. The music by Sara Bareilles uses comic songs like “The Negative” when Jenna has taken a pregnancy test and prays for good news and when the ladies in the doctor’s office use music to announce that they are members of “Club Knocked Up”.  The answer to Dawn’s shyness comes in the form of a blind date (a hilarious Nick Bailey) who deigns them destined and promises “You Will Still Be Mine”.  Jenna finds that love does exist but is not without its problems.  Dr. Pomatter, her married obstetrician (Bryan Fenkart), introduces her to the gentle caring side of love.  His unconventional looks and manner go against type as a Don Juan, allowing him to connect immediately with the audience.  You’d think this kind of relationship would be shocking, but as it is presented in such a comical yet tender way that you can’t help but root for them.  Even big, blowsy and black Becky finds unexpected love in the diner and protests “I Didn’t Plan It” to open Act Two.  Jenna’s abusive husband Ogie (Jeremy Morse) even gets a solo similar to Effie in DREAMGIRLS by singing “(You’re) Never Ever Getting Rid of Me”. I would also like to congratulate a minor character, Nurse Norma played by Maiesha McQueen, who took a small part and made it her own.  Her disapproval of what was going on in the doctor’s office was tempered somewhat by her love of pie.  She and the other members of the ensemble were so professional that it would be fun to see a whole performance done by the understudies. The production moves smoothly from diner to doctor’s office, allowing everyone on stage to get in the act.  The band is on stage most of the time and enters into the fun with gusto.  Much pie is made and eaten on stage with each little mixing of ingredients carefully choreographed in sweet detail. It’s very hard to equate the woman I saw performing HAMLET last summer at the Colorado Shakes with the sweet, gentle Dawn.  Ms. Klingaman went from sword-fighting and classic monologues to belting out songs seemingly without breaking a sweat.  Such versatility is rare – even in this business.  You go, girl! You’ve got one weekend left to get to this sweet confection.  Trust me – it’s way better than the commercials make it seem.

  • Theater Review: AnnieTheater Review: Annie

    By Beki Pineda ANNIE. Written by Thomas Meehan; music by Charles Strouse; lyrics by Martin Charnin; directed by Alicia K. Meyers. Produced by BDT Stage (5501 Arapahoe) through February 24, 2018. Tickets available at 303-449-6000 or bdtstage.com. During my recent visit to BDT, I learned that they are celebrating their 40th anniversary this year, opening their season with the show they originally opened with back in 1977. A local actor, Brandon Palmer, who has worked at the theater in the box office, did a terrific job of putting together a memoir of the first 40 years. What a joy it is to sit with that book and revisit all the wonderful shows I’ve seen over the years. Wayne Kennedy with lots of hair! Scott Beyette with even more. The Watermans in so many roles. AK Klimpke as Will Rogers, Shelly Cox-Robie in CATS and as Anna in KING AND I, Bren (now Burron) as the squeaky-voiced Lina Lamont in SINGING IN THE RAIN. Brian Norber – how I miss his smiling face. Joannie Brousseau as Lola and Evita and Charity. Ali in hundreds of variations. So many wonderful memories. I think my first show was either A CHORUS LINE or LA CAGE in 1988, followed after a gap by CHESS. After that, I think I’ve probably seen nine out of every 10 shows the BDT company has presented. What a legacy! And they are just getting started. Now, we have second generations – children of longtime performers who are following in the footsteps of their talented parents. I believe CHESS in 1991 was the first time I saw Wayne Kennedy on stage. He was so impressive as Freddy, the arrogant American chess player; his rendition of “Pity the Child” is one of my earliest and best memories of Wayne. He has been a consistent leader of the BDT company ever since, and remains so today. Playing Daddy Warbucks in ANNIE gives him the opportunity to grow from an arrogant, self-assured businessman to a humbled, loving father and allows audiences to rejoice in his rendition of “Something Was Missing.” Annie Dwyer has become a welcome addition to the company in recent years and comes into her own as Miss Hannigan in this show, a role she has amazingly never played before. Considering how perfectly meshed it is with her over-the-top sense of humor, she is a natural for the role of the frustrated and conniving matron at the orphanage where Annie and a tribe of little girls live. She goes from arrogant to humble, from belligerent to frightened, from hopeful to defeated on the turn of a dime, all the while conveying to the audience that she’s having the time of her life. Of course, the show is also dependent on the skills of your Annie. The role is double-cast at BDT and the Annie I saw (Darcy Keating), while displaying a strong singing voice and an easy acting style, was hampered by an unfortunate wig. It unflatteringly hung in her face and did nothing to allow her natural beauty to shine through. I trust that this far into the run, that has been fixed by now. Her partners in crime knock it out of the ballpark while extolling the “virtues” of a “Hard-Knock Life”. This is the kind of show that counts on a strong ensemble of people doing a lot of different parts and stepping into the spotlight when the song demands. The talented ensemble of singer/dancers fill the roles of people in Hooverville, the servants at Daddy Warbucks’, the Cabinet at the White House and others – then step up to become Bert Healy, radio-show host (Scott Severtson), A Star to Be (Valerie Igoe) and President Roosevelt (Brian Burron). The trio of Annie Dwyer as Miss Hannigan, Scott Beyette as Rooster (her brother) and Danielle Scheib as Lily (Rooster’s ditzy girlfriend) stop the show with their version of “East Street.” A big Christmas finale makes it a perfect show for a holiday outing for the family or as entertainment for your December visitors.
