    LOUISVILLE – Marijuana plants and products from Starbuds, whose official name is Citi-Med LLC, has had a health and safety advisory filed against them by several Colorado agencies. The Colorado Department of Revenue, the Colorado Department of Agriculture and the Colorado Department of Public Health and the Environment have issued the safety advisory due to potentially unsafe pesticide residue on the retail marijuana. Starbuds has a location in Louisville, as well as Denver, Westminster, Commerce City, Aurora, Pueblo and Niwot. Marijuana flower, trim, concentrates and infused-products were affected by the pesticides, and consumers who may have affected products are encouraged to bring them back to Starbuds to be properly disposed of. Consumers can determine if their cannabis is affected by looking at the container in which it was stored. Impacted containers will have a cultivation license number of 403R-00027 and the following harvest batch numbers: R1-11-17-PT R2-10-17-818 R3-10-17-PHB R2-10-17-BD 2017-09-28-Cure Room-H R2-9-17-KD R3-9-17-PHB R3-9-17-PV R3-9-17-KD R3-9-17-PT   The post Colorado agencies find pesticide residue on Starbuds marijuana appeared first on BizWest.

  • Negotiations start for I-25 improvements between Johnstown, Fort CollinsNegotiations start for I-25 improvements between Johnstown, Fort Collins

    DENVER — The Colorado Department of Transportation on Friday said it will begin negotiating with Kraemer North America and Interstate Highway Construction to add an express lane in both directions on Interstate 25 between Johnstown and Fort Collins. Kraemer North America’s headquarters is in Plain, Wis., with a regional office in Castle Rock, and IHC is based in Englewood. The Kraemer/IHC joint venture was on a short list that included Graham-Parsons Transportation Group Joint Venture and Ralph L. Wadsworth Construction Co. LLC. The project includes replacing aging bridges and widening others, creating new pedestrian and bicycle access under I-25 at Kendall Parkway, and connecting the Cache la Poudre River Regional Trail under I-25. “We’ve made a commitment to the community to address the congestion along this stretch of I-25, which will only increase as the population and economy in Northern Colorado continues to boom,” said Johnny Olson, CDOT’s Region 4 Transportation director. “We look forward to getting negotiations behind us to begin delivering on that commitment.” Work is scheduled to begin in 2018 and is scheduled to be completed in late 2021. During construction, motorists can expect two lanes of travel in each direction to remain open during the daytime, with lane closures at night when traffic volumes are lower. Partners in the project include Larimer and Weld counties, the cities of Fort Collins and Loveland, the towns of Berthoud, Johnstown,  Windsor and Timnath, and McWhinney, a Loveland-based real estate development company.   The post Negotiations start for I-25 improvements between Johnstown, Fort Collins appeared first on BizWest.

  • Greeley, Windsor conduct joint study on municipal broadbandGreeley, Windsor conduct joint study on municipal broadband

    GREELEY and WINDSOR — The city of Greeley and the town of Windsor are entering into a joint agreement with NEO Connect to conduct a feasibility study of municipal broadband for the two communities. The study will look at the need, feasibility and market recommendations for providing broadband to residents and businesses in Greeley and Windsor. In the fall of 2016, the Greeley City Council identified broadband as an issue that needed attention. Windsor put the issue in its 2016-18 strategic plan. Earlier this month, Greeley voters overwhelmingly supported the ballot measure that allows Greeley to restore its authority over network infrastructure and provides the opportunity to look into public and private partnerships to improve service. The two municipalities contracted with NEO Connect, based in Glenwood Springs, to identify recommendations for improving broadband availability and speed, as well as what investment is needed to deliver on those improvements. Greeley, Windsor and NEO Connect will also gather community feedback on existing connectivity. There are community outreach meetings scheduled on Nov. 29 throughout the day at Greeley City Hall, as well as a public outreach meeting from 6 to 7 p.m. on Nov. 29 at the Greeley Recreation Center. Windsor is having its public meetings the day before, on Nov. 28. There will be a public meeting at 6 p.m. at the Community Recreation Center. Throughout the day, Windsor officials will meet with the medical community, educators, businesses and entrepreneurs. The feasibility study is expected to be completed May 2018.   The post Greeley, Windsor conduct joint study on municipal broadband appeared first on BizWest.

  • N.Y.-based firm plans flex buildings in Creekside Business ParkN.Y.-based firm plans flex buildings in Creekside Business Park

    LONGMONT — A New York-based development company has submitted plans to the city of Longmont to construct two office/warehouse buildings and a PODs regional facility in the Creekside Business Park in the southeast part of the city. LMO Creekside District LLC, registered to Gary Krupnick, president of WestRac Contracting Corp. in Hauppauge, N.Y., has the vacant land at 2005 and 2025 Pike Road under contract to purchase from WGG Longmont Development LLC, registered to John H. Birkeland, Charles P. Woods, Michael J. Gregoire and Robert C. Goltermann, all of Denver, according to public records. LMO elected to submit an application prior to owning the property because it wants to begin construction as soon as the site plan is approved, according to documents filed with the planning department. LMO wants to build two attached office/warehouse two-story buildings. One would be 23,500 square feet  — 17,500 square feet of warehouse space and 6,000 square feet of office — and the other would be 18,930 square feet — 12,930 square feet of first-floor warehouse space and 6,000 square feet of first and second-floor office space. Both buildings will be 35 feet tall. Both buildings feature loading and unloading docks at the rear. The exterior architecture is designed to incorporate local stone, rough-sawn heavy timber, rustic metal paneling and architectural glass. Two illuminated timber and metal roofed canopies will mark the building entrances. As is required by the city of Longmont, 20 percent of the site will be open space. The PODS facility would include a 45-foot tall industrial/office space building with a footprint of 106,300 square feet and 128,100 square feet of floor area space.  Within the building, there would be 23,075 square feet of Class A office space on the north end facing Pike Road.  The rest of the square footage would be used to store the portable storage units. Tetra Tech, an engineering consultant firm in Boulder, is shepherding the plans through the planning process on behalf of LMO.

  • Door to Door Organics abruptly shuts downDoor to Door Organics abruptly shuts down

    LOUISVILLE — Door to Door Organics is no longer in business, according to a letter to its customers posted to its website on Friday. The 20-year company cited funding and recent events as reasons it was abruptly shuttering. “In the end it’s hard to point to one thing that led us to this conclusion,” the letter states. “Ultimately timing of recent events in our industry and the impact that had on our funding prospects were not in our favor with the ultimate result being no path forward.” The news comes just a month-and-a-half after Door to Door launched a curated meal plan for customers. “We want to make it easy to discover and expand the breadth of our catalog,” CEO Mike Demko told BizWest at the time of the announcement. “So far, we’re seeing great growth.” Demko also attended BizWest’s natural product CEO roundtable on Tuesday. He did not mention the company’s impending closure. When Demko spoke to BizWest in October, he discussed plans to roll out the meal plan in markets beyond its initial launch on the East Coast. Colorado was one of the states the service was supposed to be in next. They were also looking at adding to its recipe database. The letter announcing the closure discusses Door to Door’s history as a solution for delivering organic produce and products to customers. It also acknowledges that many customers were counting on Door to Door for the holidays. “We are also very mindful of the timing of this announcement,” the letter says. “We know many of you had counted on next week’s deliveries for your Thanksgiving meal. We sincerely apologize that we are unable to meet your family’s needs on this occasion. So, as we shutter our doors we say thanks and wish you and yours Good Food shared with family and friends.” Door to Door Organics did not immediately respond to requests for more information.   The post Door to Door Organics abruptly shuts down appeared first on BizWest.

  • What Colorado’s proposal for Amazon HQ2 means for Front RangeWhat Colorado’s proposal for Amazon HQ2 means for Front Range

    DENVER — The Colorado Office of Economic Development & International Trade and the Metro Denver Economic Development Corp. have released a redacted version of their response to Amazon’s request for proposals for potential sites for its second North American headquarters. The submitted proposal is on behalf of all of Colorado, and particularly highlights the nine-county region that Metro Denver EDC covers, which includes 70 communities. The 77-page document — which may be considered concise compared to what some cities submitted but was based on research that showed that Amazon valued brevity — breaks down place, talent, accessibility, business ethos and positioning for the future as reasons Amazon should select the Metro Denver region. When it comes to potential sites Amazon could select, were it to choose Colorado, no one site was emphasized over any other site. About 30 sites in the region are available, although eight are seen as particularly good fits for Amazon. “It’s not for us to say where Amazon should be,” Metro Denver EDC CEO J.J. Ament told stakeholders and reporters at a briefing Thursday morning. “We want to let Amazon choose.” Which sites Amazon may choose from is still a mystery, however. The information was redacted from the proposal because it’s proprietary information, Ament said. The idea is that to release which sites are being considered to the public would run the risk of Colorado showing its hand to competitors, exposing Amazon’s thought process to its competitors and would put the sites themselves in jeopardy against other development projects. Under the “Positioning Amazon HQ2 for the Future” section of the proposal, there are nearly 12 pages of redacted information. In the “Sites for Amazon HQ2 & Follow-On Investments” section there is a list of 15 redacted items. What the proposal does highlight in particular is place and talent. The area’s strong outdoor recreation scene, Denver Startup Week and 30 research labs and institutions are mentioned, as is the area’s 12 higher education institutions and more than 17 healthcare locations. FasTracks, the $7.4 billion comprehensive transit plan that added light and commuter rail, is mentioned as a strength. The report compares Denver International Airport, which has an economic impact of  $26 billion each year, to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, where Amazon’s original headquarters is located. There are more flights from Denver to New York and Washington, D.C., than there are from Seattle, and flights from Denver are cheaper to San Francisco and Washington, D.C. As to talent, the proposal mentions how Colorado has the second-largest aerospace economy in the U.S., more than 18,000 employees in the bioscience sector and is fourth in the nation for clean-tech employment and third in the nation for high-tech workers per capita. In fact, based on the jobs associated with what Amazon HQ2 would require, there are nearly 140,000 jobs already in the state in those skilled roles. The region is 54 percent above the national average. Year-over-year growth in those headquarters jobs from 2016 to 2017 for Colorado was 3.1 percent, above the national […] The post What Colorado’s proposal for Amazon HQ2 means for Front Range appeared first on BizWest.

Rather than go into panic mode, this talented group exercised their improv mime talents and kept the audience laughing as we waited out the noise invasion. When, at last, it stopped, they picked up where they left off as if nothing had happened. True pros! It’s 1879 in a stuffy men’s club in London dedicated to the exploration of unknown territories throughout the world. Into this cozy environment, which allows the men to celebrate their past glories while getting quietly blotto, bursts a female explorer seeking admission to their closed (to her) membership. Lucius, the club president (Eric Ritter, a young and more handsome Kelsey Grammer look-alike) has his own personal reasons for promoting her admittance. The other members are divided. Sloane (Jay Louden), a Bible-thumper who believes the lost tribes of Israel ended up in Ireland, a theory that nearly causes another Black Sunday later, is adamantly against allowing any member of the weaker sex into the club. The other members are fairly neutral and could be easily persuaded by Lucius. Sloane (a meek and mild Patrick Collins) has discovered a poisonous cobra species and wears one around his neck; of course it’s going to escape and create another scene of chaos. Walling (Mike Kinnie) has a very strange relationship with his caged guinea pig (we won’t go into that). Later, Sir Harry Percy returns from his latest adventure, during which he lost most of his traveling companions. His claim to fame is the discovery of an East Pole, but he never reveals exactly where it is. Sir Harry is a charming but pompous blowhard (played winningly by Clyde Sacks, a Sean Connery look-alike) who provides romantic competition to Lucius for the hand and heart of our spunky heroine, Phyllida Spotte-Hume (Leann Rogers). Leann plays not only the ground-breaking explorer but her own snobbish sister. Phyllida, in the one truly legitimate discovery in the whole group, has uncovered a lost tribe and brought one of its members back with her as proof of her achievement. As a tribal member tattooed in blue and named Luigi by Phyllida, Sean Maslow proves to be, like Charlie in THE FOREIGNER, adept at picking up the language and a savant at mixing drinks. In a mostly silent performance, Sean nearly steals the show as the innocent Luigi. After a ceremony in front of Queen Victoria goes horribly awry, the Club is visited by an emissary from the Court to demand reparation. Matt Bachus as Sir Bernard Humphries is a spit-and-polish, by-the-book negotiator who is also able to see the wisdom of compromise. As if lost but hungry snakes, an insulted Queen, angry Irishmen outside the door, and a plant that continues to grow were not enough plot twists, the door then opens for Beebe (Bruce Montgomery)—one of the members of Sir Harry’s last expedition, thought lost but actually captured by monks and tortured—is now hellbent on wrecking vengeance on the one who left him behind. As you can tell, this is a convoluted plot that unfolds gracefully and includes ridiculous situations, a great deal of physical comedy, clearly defined characters and slam-bang humor. Skillfully guided into a mélange of merriment by director Michele Wright, Evergreen Players continues to grow in professionalism and polish. The set, replete with stuffed heads and décor from the many trips to the jungle these men have supposedly made, provides a diversion for the eyes. The bar, central to the action as Luigi takes over bartending duties, becomes the runway for a great many flying drinks in one of the funniest, most carefully choreographed bits of slapstick ever seen.

But unlike Attention Homes’ clients, participants know they can return to safe, warm homes, jobs and families the next morning. Each participant is asked to pledge to raise $1,000 from friends, family and colleagues through his or her own online fundraising page to support Attention Homes’ homeless and runaway youth services. People ages 12 and up are welcome to participate. For information, to participate or to donate to the cause, visit www.attentionhomes.donorpages.com/SleepOut2017.

  • Theater Review: Dangerous LiaisonsTheater Review: Dangerous Liaisons

    By Beki Pineda DANGEROUS LIAISONS. Adapted by Christopher Hampton from the 1782 novel by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos; directed by Len Matheo. Produced by Miners Alley Playhouse (1224 Washington St., Golden) through Oct. 15, 2017. Tickets available at 303-935-3044 or www.minersalley.com. What do Alan Rickman, John Malkovich, Ben Daniels, Liev Schreiber and James O’Hagan-Murphy have in common? Other than being six degrees from Kevin Bacon, they have all played the flawed but intriguing Vicomte de Valmont in this sexy, scandalous production. What a lineup of talent for James to follow . . . but he lives up to the challenge. Valmont is a sexual predator, a man born for decadent pleasure, a society animal more in tune with the nuances of fashion than with his own heart. He and his female counterpart (as well as rival and former lover), the Marquise de Merteuil (Lisa DeCaro), play the game of seduction as if it were a game of chess, always trying to keep one move ahead of the other. Their hapless victims are the virtuous and the married who become pawns in an ultimately deadly game of seduction. The script presents a complicated scenario in which revenge is plotted, favors are demanded in return for others of a sexual nature, and the innocent and unwary are exploited for frivolous games. An exquisite verbal and emotional fencing match between those inside the scheme is followed by an actual well-choreographed fencing match between Valmont and his young rival for Merteuil’s hand. But it’s a half-hearted romance at best. By that time, he quite unexpectedly has lost his heart to the woman he has been courting as a “favor” to Merteuil. It’s as much a surprise to him as to everyone else; he didn’t even realize he had a heart. To watch the knowledge of his true feelings cross James’s face at a crucial moment when his actions could brand him either a gentleman or a villain is a study in astonishment. The Marquise too learns an unexpected lesson while she is leading the players on a merry chase around multiple beds. Lisa turns the heat up in this portrait of icy cynicism whose “victory” is hollow and pointless. Erika Lee Johnson is the target of the contemptible plot, a married lady (in every sense of the word) whose husband is away at war. She is the soul of piety and decorum until pursued ruthlessly by Valmont. This production adopts the device of playing it as though it were a rehearsal being done backstage in a theater. This allows for minimal scenery (a back wall of ropes for a fly system, the requisite check-in sheets, even a fire-extinguisher holder that has no extinguisher), movable furniture (a chaise, a small table and a most important bed) and a variety of costumes—some complete, some not. Most of the women are in corsets, while some wear rehearsal skirts and others have more complete costumes. Some hair is dressed; some is not. During this period in history and society, how you wore your clothes and presented yourself was as important as who you knew and your place at court. This method of presentation created a casual air that seemed inappropriate. The actors gather for rehearsal before the “acting” starts, to stretch, help each other into costume and form a little encouragement circle. However, what this exercise seems to do is establish from the very beginning that this is a group of actors we see before us. The device keeps the characters they are playing at arm’s length. It was hard to accept them as the characters when we had seen them as actors preparing to be the characters. There is something to be said for keeping the backstage rituals backstage. The production is worth seeing just for the verbal jousting between James and Lisa, two professionals who are performing at the top of their game.
