COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Construction crews are putting the finishing touches on a new 250-foot pedestrian bridge in downtown Colorado Springs.

The bridge, which was installed on Monday, will connect America the Beautiful Park with the adjacent U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum complex and downtown Colorado Springs.

Southwest Colorado business accelerator unveils 2020 class

The Southwest Colorado Accelerator Program for Entrepreneurs, like many events around Durango, reinvented itself for 2020 to deal with restrictions required by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Eight companies, some participating for the second time, were chosen to participate in the program that provides education, mentoring and financing for startup and young companies in Southwest Colorado that hold the potential of growing and bringing in new jobs to the region by exporting their products and services across the country, even the world.

Participating companies have traditionally unveiled their pitch for financing during a banquet that included financing pitches, but with the problematic pathogen still banning meeting of more than 10 people, SCAPE unveiled its eight companies via video investment pitches made on SCAPE’s website.

Elizabeth Marsh, director of SCAPE, said in some ways the 2020 format adds some convenience to investors, who can view the pitches on their own schedules and rewatch

Colorado business owners adapt to COVID realities, prepare for future

CBS News is chronicling what has changed for the lives of Americans in 2020 amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The COVID shutdown was a devastating way to start the year for many Colorado businesses reliant on tourism. 

International travel was blocked, locals stayed home, and employees were difficult to maintain — especially when federal unemployment paid more than hourly wages  for many. 

But now, many business owners feel they’ve survived the worst and are looking forward to winter.

Dustin Dyer, co-owner of Kent Mountain Adventure Center (KMAC) in Estes Park, said business this spring and summer was better than he expected, despite COVID, though still down 30-40% compared to past years.

Dyer said one enduring effect of the pandemic has been difficulty hiring staff, which has put a strain on employees.

“We’re kind of working with this skeleton crew,” he said.

Dyer’s employees are responsible for customer safety, so they require

Colorado model ordinance aims to simplify online sales tax

Recently, the Colorado Municipal League in tandem with businesses and the state’s Department of Revenue created a model ordinance on economic nexus and marketplace facilitator laws to help simplify sales tax within the state. Localities that adopt it will align with the state’s economic nexus threshold for their local taxes. Colorado has historically had self-collected home-rule cities sales taxes, which required businesses to reach out to each home-rule city for their economic nexus rules.

“Colorado has two types of sales tax jurisdictions,” said Scott Peterson, vice president of U.S. tax policy and government relations at Avalara. “The majority are administered by the state, but there are more than 70 that administer their own sales tax. The point of the model ordinance is to get at those jurisdictions that have been doing it on their own.”

It all started with the Supreme Court’s decision inWayfairtwo years ago, which held

Colorado Springs cooking school owners sell a line of spices and has classes about using them | Lifestyle

What started out as a cooking school has grown to include a successful spice business with a Spice of the Month Club, of which I’m a proud member.

Co-owners Cortney Smith and David Cook’s line of spice mixes and condiments is marketed as Gather Ingredients. They’ve used the spices in their various cooking classes, but they realized that students might end up knowing only one way to use a particular spice — in the class recipes.

So, a new series of classes was born. A single spice is the star of an hourlong presentation. Smith or Cook discusses its use in different styles of cuisines and demonstrates a recipe for tasting. Students get a package of the featured spice to take home.


Pueblo green chile crop is huge this year and a good reason to celebrate

I attended the August class, which featured adobo seasoning, and it was a real
