Getting carbon out of your portfolio is tricky 30.1.2014 Salt Lake Tribune

Our View: Group sales program a smart investment 19.1.2014 Steamboat Pilot
We support Steamboat Springs City Council’s decision this week to grant Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association CEO Tom Kern’s request for $21,000 from the city general fund to help attract more convention business to the community. We consistently have taken the position that there is no getting around the fact that our city government, which is one of only a few municipalities in Colorado that does not have a property tax and depends largely on sales tax receipts, essentially is in the tourism business. For that reason, we think it is not just defensible, but essential, that the city invest in driving sales tax receipts generated by our visitors. We also would point out that unlike most Colorado resort communities, ours has chosen to spend its lodging taxes on causes other than tourism marketing. We spend it on building amenities and such projects as expanding the biking trails system. Contrary to council member Scott Ford’s remark this week — he was quoted as saying it’s not City ...

Op-ed: Medicaid isn’t charity; it’s community investment 28.12.2013 Salt Lake Tribune
Sen. Allen Christensen, chair of the Senate Social Services Appropriations Committee, argued in a recent Tribune op-ed (“Medicaid expansion is just forced charity,” Opinion, Dec. 22) that taxpayer-supported health services for the poor should be considered forced charity. Alternatives to this philosophy should be considered by Gov. Gary Herbert as he decides about expanded Medicaid coverage for Utah. First, a few facts should be clarified. Sen. Christensen states that a “huge proportion [of Me...
