DEVELOPING: CSU freshman apologizes for driving RamRide vehicle while high

Colorado State University freshman Karl La Borde apologized to the CSU community Tuesday night, in an interview with CTV.

La Borde was pulled over Friday morning near the intersection of College Ave and Laurel on suspicion of speeding and DUI. La Borde was driving a CSU RamRide vehicle.  After the officer approached the vehicle, he requested to search the car for marijuana, as he smelt the scent of the drug.

According to La Borde, he had smoked “…a small amount of weed” while pulled over during a break.  A self-proclaimed “recreational marijuana smoker”, La Borde believed he had not smoked enough marijuana to be considered intoxicated.

In an interview with CTV, La Borde said — I now realize that driving under the influence of marijuana is the same as driving drunk.–

La Borde admitted that he was not in the appropriate state of mind to be operating a vehicle, and he said he believed he was putting others’ lives in danger.

–I will never drive while high on marijuana, and I will take the keys out of the hands of whoever tries.–

La Borde claimed that after the arrest, he went back to his dormitory and threw away all of his drugs, drug paraphernalia, and drug related items.

La Borde expressed that he was putting other people’s lives in danger, and that he was glad that he didn’t hit or kill anyone.

RamRide is a weekend program offered by the ASCSU office at CSU. The program offers safe rides home for those who may have had too much to drink. Karl La Borde did have a partner who was in the car with him.  The ‘navigator’ was not taken to jail.

UPDATED: Lory Student Center construction underway

Producer’s Note:  This story is the first in a two-part series on the Lory Student Center renovations. CTV Reporter Bree Hottinger and Photojournalist Sean Korbitz contributed to the television story.

Behind the tall green fences and trailers that now line the west end of the Lory Student Center, a team of up to 30 construction workers have begun laying the foundation for the largest capital improvement project on campus in recent memory.

And once the summer is over, that team will expand to up to 300, who will work day and night to ensure that the $65 million project finishes both on time and on budget.

“It’s always unique to remodel a building while it’s being used,” said Bill Bialek, a CSU graduate and superintendent for Saunders Construction. “… It’s a challenge to be in the center of campus, and in an area that is so frequently used by students.”

Construction officially began during winter break, and so far, the crew has torn down the solarium and the west end of the south ballroom, as well as started to update the LSC’s over 50-year-old utility system.

This process has involved navigating equipment around an underground steam tunnel, slowly chipping away at the student center’s exterior with a more than $80,000 remote control jackhammer, removing the remnants of an old ice rink and carefully recycling as many bricks as possible to achieve the project’s desired sustainability rating.

In addition, the crew has meticulously tried to salvage all of the sculptures and alumni plaques from the stairwell leading to the LSC’s west entrance, as well as attempted to use as much signage as possible to ensure that students and staff members don’t accidentally enter the construction area.

Currently, the project is both on time and on budget, Bialek said.

“So far, we haven’t gotten any complaints,” Bialek said. “We’ve tried to be as low-impact as possible.”

But that didn’t mean that students returning from winter break weren’t jarred by yet another construction project on a campus where the sight of yellow tape and the sound of jackhammers is a familiar one.

“It’s horrible,” said Samantha Denard, a sophomore ethnic studies major. “I mean, we came here to come to Colorado State, [but] we go to Construction State.”

Since 2007, notable construction projects have included the Campus Recreation Center, Durell Center, the Behavioral Sciences building, Moby Arena, Rockwell Hall and the Computer Science building.

The $60 million of the LSC reconstruction project budget funded by bonds is the largest of any CSU project since 2007, according to a presentation found on the Facilities Management website.

The second most costly bonded project is the Lory Apartments, which will utilize bonds for the entirety of its $48 million budget.

University officials familiar with the bonds process were unavailable for comment by deadline.

The Lory Student Center renovation project will completely overhaul all 160,000 square feet of the facility, as well as add approximately 40,000 gross square feet. In April 2011, students approved a $70 student fee to help fund the project, which will not go into effect until fall 2015.

While the center is under construction, many of its services — including the Associated Student of CSU and the various campus advocacy offices — will be relocated to the MAC gym in the Campus Recreation Center.

“But I think all the people that are involved in the relocation, all the student services offices, diversity offices, ASCSU government… I think they are all ready to work together and make the space work because without this space, they would be dispersed across campus and maybe some of them off campus,” said Judy Muenchow, the executive director for Campus Recreation.
