Young entrepreneurs: Caylee Hood, pork delivery service 16.4.2017 Steamboat Pilot
A group of 15 Routt County high school students has spent the school year developing individual business plans as part of the new Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunity, or CEO, class. The class is funded through donations and pledges from local businesses and aims to encourage high school students to consider entrepreneurial opportunities within their own hometowns, rather than moving away to find career success. Here’s a look at some of the plans students have dreamed up as part of the class. All of the student business plans will be presented at a trade show from 5 to 7 p.m. May 19 at the Steamboat Springs Community Center. Caylee Hood, 18, Soroco High School What is your business plan?

Routt tabs FEMA veteran to lead county's emergency operations 14.2.2017 Steamboat Pilot
Routt County commissioners are expected on Tuesday to approve the hiring of David “Mo” DeMorat, a former U.S. Marine officer, and more recently, a planning manager with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, as the county’s new emergency operations director. DeMorat replaces former long-time county director of emergency management Bob Struble, who retired in October 2016. DeMorat confirmed Monday that his role with FEMA’s Lessons Learned/Continuous Improvement Program involved reaching out to smaller agencies at the state and local levels to evaluate the effectiveness of emergency-planning exercises. County Manager Tom Sullivan said multilayered planning exercises are something local first responders are hungry for. “So many times, at the national exercise program, we would come up with an aggressive exercise that might start with a table top exercise,’ DeMorat said Monday. “We might do that in one county and then move forward with an operations-based exercise and include a functional exercise in which ...

Asia about to face a major dollar stress test 30.11.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
For Asian markets, 2017 could be the year of the dollar crunch. Foreign portfolio flows have taken a sharp downturn since Donald Trump’s election victory, with $15 billion fleeing Asian bonds and stocks this month alone — close to 30 percent of year-to-date inflows to the region, according to Deutsche Bank — as a strengthening greenback and a bevy of protectionist policies from the president-elect darken the growth prospects for emerging markets. Lending spreads, domestic demand and the resolve ...

Letter: The bipartisan truth about NAFTA 3.11.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
A certain presidential candidate wants to blame U.S. economic woes on “Bill Clinton’s NAFTA.” But, let’s remember (per Wikipedia): “NAFTA enjoyed bipartisan backing — it was negotiated by Republican President George H.W. Bush and passed through Congress. Later, it was implemented under Democratic President Bill Clinton. It encouraged a more than tripling of regional trade, and cross-border investment between the three countries also grew significantly. Yet NAFTA has remained a perennial target ...
