B-2 50¢ A ‘Yes’ to Sundance Drugs provided Ruth Bader Ginsburg tells of episode while at Ivy League school “Every woman of my vintage knows what sexual harassment is, although we didn’t have a name for it,” said Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg during a Sundance Film Festival panel Sunday. While attending Cornell University in the 1950s, Ginsburg said, she sought help from a chemistry instructor before an exam. In turn, he gave her a practice exam. The next day, Ginsburg walked into her chemistry class to find the actual exam was identical to her practice test her professor had given her. “I knew exactly what he wanted in return,” said Ginsburg, who was at Sundance for the premiere of “RGB,” a documentary about her life. “I went to his office and said, ‘How dare you? How dare you do this?’ And that was the end of that. “The attitude of sexual harassment was simply, ‘Get past it. Boys will be boys,’” she added. “This was not considered anything you could do something about — that the law could help you do something about.” She said that changed with the publication in 1979 of Catharine MacKinnon’s book “Sexual Harassment of Working Women.” “It was a revelation,” she said. Ginsburg says the book describes incidents like what happened to her, but also how an anti-discrimination law (known as Title VII and prevents discrimination based on race, national origin, religion and sex) could be used as a tool to stop sexual harassment. “It was eye opening and it was the beginning of a field that didn’t exist until then,” Ginsburg said. Ginsburg’s personal experiences and court appearances to argue against blatant sexism didn’t end there. She would battle that as a young professional at Rutgers Law School fighting for equal pay. She would advocate for female janitors at Columbia University to be paid the same as their male counterparts, she would struggle with it as a working mother and she would fight for it many other times over her career as a women’s rights lawyer. “Ruth Ginsburg, quite simply, changed the way the world is for American women,” said NPR’s Nina Totenberg by way of introducing the Supreme Court justice before the panel. And she did. If you’re an American woman, you can thank her, in part, for Vol. 137 | No. 101 ANGELIQUE MCNAUGHTON The Park Record TANZI PROPST/PARK RECORD Kaylee Paris says “Yes” as her boyfriend, Tony Casarez, asks her to marry him on Saturday.

Festival antagonist returns The Park City police receive numerous complaints about parking over first few days JAY HAMBURGER The Park Record A regular Sundance Film Festival antagonist has returned to the streets of Park City. Parked cars quickly became problematic during the opening days of the festival, Park City Police Department logs showed, as a crush of vehicles arrived for Sundance. The problems were widespread as people in disparate neighborhoods reported issues to the police. The Police Department has regularly received complaints about parking during Sundance for years, but the cases in 2018 were reported at a time when Park City leaders want to reduce the impacts of special events like Sundance on the community. Park City in 2018, as an example, has effectively forbidden non-local traffic on neighborhood streets in Old Town, posting signs noting that parking there is for people who hold resident-only permits and prohibiting thru traffic. The signs indicate there is a $145 fine and towing enforced. Police Department logs from the opening days of Sundance detail numerous problems, and at some points there was a concentration of complaints with only sporadic other calls to the police. Some of the especially problematic stretches included: A Summit County man faces multiple charges after, prosecutors allege, he encouraged teenagers to smoke marijuana at a party that was held in his home in Trailside. Charges were filed in Summit County’s 3rd District Court on Jan. 16 against 42-year-old Adam David Childers. He faces six counts of distribution of or arranging to distrib- COURTESY OF SUMMIT COUNTY OFFICE ute a controlled substance SHERIFF’S Adam David Childers, 42, in the presence of a child, a of Summit County, faces second-degree felony; four several felony charges in counts of tampering with a Summit County’s 3rd District witness, a third-degree felo- Court. Prosecutors claim he ny; one count of obstructing hosted a party for minors at justice, a third-degree felo- his Trailside home. ny; and six counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, a Class B misdemeanor. Distributing a controlled substance in the presence of a child is the most serious charge and carries a maximum penalty upon conviction of one-to-15 years in prison for each count. Childers is accused of hosting a party at his home in December that six children — ages 14 and 15 — attended, according to court documents. Documents allege Childers collected all the children’s cellphones to prevent them from documenting the party. Childers allegedly encouraged the children to smoke the marijuana he provided and they agreed, documents state. He also invited a female stripper to the party who showed her breasts to the children, according to court documents. Earlier this month, law enforcement began questioning Childers about the events that transpired at the party. Four of the children subsequently went to Childers’ house and recorded conservations with him where he explicitly told them to lie to the police because he could get in trouble for Please see Antagonist. A-2 Please see Drug, A-2 Star-studded rally demands respect for all Speakers press range of issues important to the political left JAY HAMBURGER The Park Record Several thousand people rallied at City Park on Saturday morning, one of the busiest days of the Sundance Film Festival, in a scaled-back follow-up to the Women’s March on Main in 2017, trumpeting a range of issues favored by the political left and vowing to continue the resistance to President Trump and the Republican Party. It was a star-studded affair with actress Jane Fonda and prominent attorney Gloria Allred featured on a list of speakers that also included others from the entertainment industry as well as political figures. The event, known as the Respect Rally, drew a crowd of Parkites and people from outside of Utah. The Park City Police Department estimated the attendance at approximately 2,500 while organizers pegged the number at approximately 4,000. The police did not report law enforcement problems but said there was bad traffic as the time of the rally approached. There was a law enforcement presence at City Park with outside agencies reinforcing the local police. Fonda drew cheers during her remarks to the crowd. She noted the GOP has won gubernatorial campaigns and lower-level offices in addition to the White House. She urged the crowd to learn about grassroots activism opportunities in their own communities, likening work such as that to the civil rights movement. “It happens through organizing,” Fonda said. “That’s how all the importPlease see Respect, A-2 TANZI PROPST/PARK RECORD Kathy Mears, Bruce Andersen, Terri Andersen and Stephany Alexander, from left, support Respect Rally causes with several thousand others at City Park on Saturday.
