  1. It was in one of the “construction news” September articles. The two owners never answered any of my emails, so I asked the Town hall planner, and things are going along slowly with design, planning, permits. Some delays, but nothing drastic. We also contacted the hotel’s Planner who handled the first phase, but she is not involved in the current phase.

  2. I was confused and intrigued by this:
    “==Affirmative Action is being taken up by the US Supreme Court. — In Colorado the Metropolitan State University is our only university that must allow admission to students of color under this law…”
    1. There hasn’t been an affirmative action plan in the US has uses quotas since the Bakke decision in the 1970s.
    2. The link you provided is to Metro State Univ in Minnesota (not in CO).
    3. That MN plan focuses on employment and (again) doesn’t include quotas.

  3. Thanks for your comments. — I will correct the web site link; thanks — Those statements were taken from a TV network evening news program. I am not able to find the source and verify it at this time, so I will put a disclaimer with the statement above. == However, it appears that your 1970s date is misleading — One example is: An 8/6/22 NY Times article begins with: “As a Supreme Court case on college admissions nears, the California and Michigan university systems say their efforts to build diverse classes have hardly worked. It has been more than 15 years since two of the country’s top public university systems, the University of Michigan and the University of California, were forced to stop using affirmative action in admissions….“(and goes on to quote several sources, saying: “Despite incredibly valiant, sustained efforts to navigate the realities of a post-affirmative action world, the flagship campuses in California and Michigan have been unsuccessful in enrolling members of marginalized racial groups,” NY Times continues: The Supreme Court is scheduled on Oct. 31 to hear the lawsuits brought by the anti-affirmative action organization Students for Fair Admissions that challenge the race-conscious methods that Harvard and the University of North Carolina use to pick freshman classes. Previous cases, per NYTimes: The Supreme Court has weighed in on affirmative action in college admissions several times, helping shape the policy through the decades. In the 1978 case Regents of the University of California v. Bakke, the court decided that a state university could consider race in admissions but that racial quotas went too far. See NY Times for info/and/a timeline on other cases. Or do other searches online.
