Mailers ridicule Tellez as disciple of large government

Fort Collins City Council claimant Nancy Tellez sums adult mailers sent both ancillary and hostile her debate thusly: “Their whole purpose is not to give an accurate depiction of a conditions or position for possibly side.”

The east-central district she and competition Ray Martinez wish to paint has been belligerent 0 for mailers sent by eccentric parties aggressive and ancillary any candidate. While Martinez has been a concentration of one group’s attacks, Tellez hasn’t transient opposition.

Citizens for a Sustainable Economy, a nonprofit dependent with a Fort Collins Area Chamber of Commerce, has spent some-more than $10,000 in a District 2 competition alone. While a debate financial filings state a spending has all been to support Martinez, a mailer nonetheless has Tellez’s design bordered in red, accompanied by what a organisation deems as disastrous debate platforms.

“These mail pieces are assembled only to make one chairman demeanour good and one chairman to demeanour bad,” Tellez said. “Facts are not a high priority, obviously.”

She responded to some of a claims in a mailers, encountering others or wondering because a claims were portrayed as negative. One pro-Martinez mailer states that she “wants to concentration on buses and bikes as a categorical approach to soothe trade congestion.”

“I don’t know because they would be disastrous about that, unless they only like to see thousands of cars cramming a streets of Fort Collins,” Tellez pronounced Wednesday.

Steve Lucas, boss of CSE, simplified that his organisation does not trust multi-modal travel is bad, yet wants some-more than what Tellez has supported. Martinez, according to a mailer, has “smart, common-sense solutions” to trade congestion, yet it does not go into detail.

The CSE mailer also calls her an disciple of a city substantiating a “costly metropolitan broadband utility.” Tellez called that an “inaccurate representation,” yet she supports exploring metropolitan broadband. CSE-backed mayoral claimant Wade Troxell fits that check as well, yet metropolitan broadband is not mentioned in a mailers sent on his behalf.

Lucas stood by his group’s claim. While it didn’t have an opinion on either metropolitan broadband is good or bad — “the contribution aren’t in,” he wrote in an email — he pronounced it characterized Tellez as someone who seeks supervision solutions to potentially non-governmental issues.

“The pivotal indicate we’re creation here is that her initial desire is to welcome a large supervision resolution though most thought,” Lucas said.

That echoed another wharf conflicting Tellez in a group’s eyes: that she “advocates for supervision mandates and costly supervision programs,” according to a mailer. Lucas didn’t have any approach justification for that, yet drew conclusions formed on Tellez ancillary salary increases.

“While not accurately a stipulation of support for a internal smallest salary law or other mandates, it reveals a mindset,” Lucas said.

In an talk with a Coloradoan, Tellez said, “I positively don’t consider a city sets a wages,” yet advocated enlivening businesses to lift them.

“There were times on a propagandize house where we consider I’ve advocated for accurately a conflicting of that in how it relates to a propagandize district,” Tellez said, referring to fighting conflicting contrast mandates.

Maryland opens Big Ten play with 13-4 win over Michigan

The misfortune fears of Maryland’s supporters seemed to be entrance to delight mid by a third entertain of a 13-4 win over Michigan on Sunday dusk during Byrd Stadium.

Maryland, a long-lived men’s lacrosse powerhouse, looked drifting in a initial diversion in a new league. The Terrapins incited a round over haphazardly and generally played down to an overmatched foe wearing informed maize and blue swift helmets.

But it took 29 seconds for a Terrapins to infer they sojourn a step forward of their fledgling competition.

First, comparison Jay Carlson incited and whistled a shot past goalie Gerald Logan. Moments later, longpole defenseman Tim Muller found comparison Joe LoCascio for another goal. Off a indirect faceoff, sophomore midfielder Isaiah Davis-Allen picked adult a belligerent ball, sprinted downfield and scored on a 10-yard shot to top a sequence.

By a time sophomore Colin Heacock sealed a third-quarter fusillade with nonetheless another goal, No. 3 Maryland had unexpected built a autocratic 9-1 lead.

“Being in a ACC for 3 years, it’s unequivocally a large change going to a Big Ten,” comparison Charlie Raffa said.

Welcome to a initial deteriorate of Big Ten lacrosse, where a oldest member schools are still personification catch-up to a new arrivals.

This weekend noted a initial joining games for a conference’s newest sport, that facilities 6 teams, including associate member Johns Hopkins. But outward of a Blue Jays, a Terrapins have no equals in terms of tradition in their new home — during slightest not right now — and questions sojourn as to what arrange of outcome it will have on a prolonged tenure fortunes of a program.

Take Michigan, in a midst of a fourth deteriorate fielding a Division we lacrosse team. More than 50 percent of a register is comprised of underclassmen. The Terrapins, in comparison, are in a midst of their 90th deteriorate personification lacrosse during college’s top level.

The hope, though, is that a participation of Maryland and Johns Hopkins will assistance rouse a form of a programs via a conference.

“Having Maryland and Hopkins concerned positively helps since there’s a notice out there, and we consider it’s real, that a Big Ten is going to be a premier lacrosse discussion as a rest of us get adult to speed,” Michigan Coach John Paul said. “Having Maryland and Hopkins concerned already gives us that credit that this is coming. The age that we’re recruiting now, these kids are looking four, 5 years into a destiny and they’re banking on this being a energy discussion during that point.”

On this day, Maryland simply had too most firepower, even during a opening Terrapins Coach John Tillman called “definitely one of a sloppiest games.”

Senior attackman Matt Rambo purebred his fourth shawl pretence this deteriorate and Carlson combined dual goals. But it was a few doubtful sources of offense that stole a spotlight when 16 Maryland turnovers and some nifty work by Logan (12 saves) threatened to make this subjection most closer than approaching early on.

Davis-Allen, a defensive midfielder, had his initial dual goals of a deteriorate and longstick midfielder Matt Neufeldt chipped in with his initial career goal. Defensemen Casey Ikeda and Muller any contributed an support as well. The Terrapins, led by Raffa, tranquil 15 of a game’s 21 faceoffs and eventually dominated possession after a indolent start, scarcely doubling Michigan in shots (41-21).

When it was over, Tillman accentuated a positives of a league. He mentioned a resources and a achieved coaching staffs within a conference. He forked out that No. 15 Ohio State kick No. 5 Denver progressing this month. This, he kept reiterating, is a new existence for these Terrapins.

“I don’t unequivocally demeanour during us or a other teams being overmatched during all,” Tillman said. “I consider all of them benefaction a lot of hurdles and we’re going to have to get a lot improved to go where we wish to go.”
