Everything is at stake. We’ve got to give it all we got, and we can do it. Time is up.” Allred spoke about the women’s movement of the past year in her comments to the crowd. Allred led the crowd in saying the words “resist, insist, persist, elect.” “This is the year that women’s voices have been heard, the year when women broke our silence about the injustices we have suffered, and the year where we said to rich, powerful, famous men you can break our hearts, but you cannot break our spirits,” Allred said. She demanded respect and rights for “our daughters, our granddaughters, our mothers, our sisters, our lesbian sisters, gay men, transgenders and all minorities.” The crowd cheered throughout the speeches, huddling together close to a covered stage put up for the event.

One of the others said “Still Not My Pres.” and another professed a person’s support of the investigation of special counsel Robert Mueller into Russian influence on the election. One of the speakers on Saturday, Sadie Ortiz, was especially notable for the people in attendance from Park City. She is a 17-year-old junior at Park City High School who lives in Prospector, giving her direct ties to the community. The crowd greeted her warmly even at an event where other speakers are recognized across the country. Ortiz’s brief remarks included comments about the importance of voting. In an interview afterward, Ortiz said teens today sometimes forget life exists outside of high school, and she wants to convey the message of young voters. She acknowledged she was nervous speaking to the crowd. “It’s really important to have someone in power that is someone we can actually look up to and someone that doesn’t want to shut off voices and someone that actually wants to help all people and all minorities,” Ortiz said in an interview. The Respect Rally was organized one year after the Women’s March on Main, also held during the film festival. The event in 2017, staged the day after Trump took office, drew between 7,000 and 9,000 to Main Street and Swede Alley. It was the largest demonstration in Park City’s modern history. The Respect Rally was not expected to match the crowd size of the Women’s March on Main, but the event on Saturday was itself one of the largest demonstrations held in Park City. busy stretch that day, from 11:28 a.m. until 12:55 p.m., involved 20 reports on streets like Sidewinder Drive. Phil Kirk, a Police Department captain, said the agency stepped up enforcement of parking issues during Sundance this year, resulting in the large number of cases. He said officers on foot patrols along Main Street are working 10-hour shifts addressing parking and other problems. Kirk said the officers on foot patrols observe upward of 50 issues each day with approximately half of them necessitating formal police action. “That’s the first time we’ve done this, to my knowledge,” Kirk said about the foot patrols. Kirk said a majority of the people seen violating parking rules receive warnings unless a vehicle creates some sort of safety hazard. “Before they’re causing serious issues, we’re addressing them,” he said. City Hall and festival organizers have long discouraged Sundance-goers from driving into Old Town, cautioning them that parking is prohibited on neighborhood streets and parking in the Main Street core is expensive and heavily restricted. The parking issues continued on Monday. During one shift on Monday, most of the issues related to parking and traffic, the Police Department said in an online posting. clause, beer and frat boys to argue that men and women weren’t treated equally as they should be under the 14th Amendment. Overall, the 84-year-old and co-founder of the Women’s Rights Project at the American Civil Liberties Union says she’s pleased by the movements supporting equality now that have emerged in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations against several powerful men in politics, Hollywood and other halls of power. “I think it’s about time,” Ginsburg said to the crowd gathered at Sundance’s Cinema Café regarding the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements. “For so long many were silent, thinking there was nothing you could do about it. Now, the law is on the side of women, or men, who encounter harassment — and that’s a good thing.” Wed/Thurs/Fri, January 24-26, 2018 Leaders extend stay: a hotel vote delayed Decision about project on S.R. 224 postponed until at least February ANGELIQUE MCNAUGHTON The Park Record The Summit County Council began the arduous process last week of wading through hundreds of pages of documents as part of the appeals that were filed regarding the recent approval of a hotel project at the former Colby School property on S.R. 224. County Council members heard more than four hours of testimony on Jan. 17 from the appellants and the representatives of the applicant. The Council agreed to postpone a decision until next month. County Councilor Roger Armstrong said the Council received a more-than300-page packet from the attorney of one of the appellants the night before the meeting, adding “there is just a lot of material to get through.” “I think this is probably as complicated of an issue as we have heard, and it has a significant number of moving pieces,” Armstrong said. “We need some time to get our arms around the legal issues and meet with our legal team to understand this appeal.” The appeals stem from the Snyderville Basin Planning Commission’s decision to approve an application for a 15-room hotel, 5,000-square-foot restaurant, and yoga and fitness studios at the site, east of S.R. 224, on Dec. 12. The vote was 6-1, with Chuck Klingenstein dissenting. Planning Commissioners Canice Harte, Bea Peck, Joel Fine, Malena Stevens, Ryan Dickey and Thomas Cooke agreed to approve the application. Members of the Park West Preservation Coalition, which represents several property owners in Park West Village, and Joe Wrona, an attorney representing resident Andrew Levy, filed two separate applications on Dec. 22 to appeal the planning panel’s decision. In 2014, the former Colby School/ Snowed Inn property was acquired by Emma Worsley and Julie McBroom. Summit County originally approved the Snowed Inn and related uses as a Class II development in August of 1985. The 1998 Development Code allowed for a change of use in the existing building from a hotel to a school and it operated as a school until 2008. A representative Continued from A-1 Drug counts outlined “providing you guys drugs,” charging documents state. Documents allege Childers told the children to “deny, deny, deny” the accusations and keep their stories straight. Childers told them, if necessary, to say he gave them fake marijuana he got in Mexico and the woman’s breasts were covered, according to court documents. He allegedly told them if they stick to the story, the “police will not be able to prove it.” Court documents state that Childers speculated and discussed who reported the party to law enforcement in the recorded conversations. He told the children that “you don’t do this to your friends” and “people that go to the hard core prison, like, you snitches get stitch- for the developers did not respond to The Park Record’s multiple requests for comment before deadline. Wrona continues to maintain that the proposed hotel is actually an outdoor concert venue, which is not allowed under the original approvals in the 1980s. He said the site is not appropriate for the project because it is surrounded by three neighborhoods and exists in a rural residential zone. Wrona told County Council members the Planning Commission’s decision “will get turned around” in district court if the Council doesn’t reverse it. “I made that advice to the Planning Commission and I’m making the same advice to you. You can’t mitigate an outdoor special event center like this,” he said during the meeting. “The bottom line here is that this parcel has been the poster child for the problems that result from creeping entitlements for a long, long time. We are seeing a Canyons-style development proposal for the other side of the street in the middle of three neighborhoods.” Kathryn Sonzini, representing the Park West Preservation Coalition, said that when she bought her home in Park West Village, she knew she was going to be living next to a bed and breakfast and understood they had weddings in the summer. She didn’t anticipate the impacts she claims the new project would cause, however. Sonzini said the hotel project will depreciate the value of homes in the three surrounding neighborhoods. “The Coalition believes the Planning Commission was misguided by the planning and legal departments, resulting in egregious errors,” she said at the meeting. “We believe the Colby School project should be reduced in size, scope, density and intensity.” The applicants for the hotel have repeatedly stated they have attempted to mitigate the project as best as they could. The Planning Commission spent a significant portion of the meetings leading up to the approval discussing ways to mitigate the impacts the hotel would have on traffic, lights and sound. The County Council plans to meet in closed session over the next few weeks to discuss the appeal and receive guidance from the legal department. However, a decision has to be made before the public. The matter is scheduled to be reviewed during the Feb. 7 County Council meeting. es,” according to court documents. The documents allege Childers threatened the accuser and told the children “he should not mess with” him because he or the stripper will make accusations against him. After the police interviewed Childers and he knew an investigation was taking place, he gathered the drugs and paraphernalia to get “rid of everything that was not prescribed,” according to court documents. Childers was arrested at his home in the Trailside neighborhood on Jan. 11, according to the Summit County Sheriff’s Office. He posted $100,000 cash bail on Jan. 16 and was released. His initial appearance in 3rd District Court is scheduled for Monday, Jan. 29, at 8:30 a.m. Childers has hired attorney Greg Skordas to represent him. Skordas said he is still gathering facts about the case, but the county attorney’s office has not provided him with all of the available information. “I have met with the prosecutor and we have discussed the case and sort of where it is and where it is going, but it is too early to discuss anything else,” he said.
