Q&A: A broader view of sustainable investing 20.1.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
People who favor investing in a way that helps preserve the environment have more options than strictly focusing on companies that offer Earth-friendly products or services. Companies that make solar energy panels, electric vehicles or household products sourced from sustainable materials may fit the bill, but not necessarily offer attractive returns. Brown Advisory Funds’ Sustainable Growth Fund (BIAWX) keeps this in mind. It focuses on companies that are growing even as they use environmentall... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Community Agriculture Alliance: Barns deserve credits 19.1.2017 Steamboat Pilot
Barns have long captured the imagination of the American public. They are prominent icons on the landscape and reminders of the nation's agrarian roots and hardy pioneers. Unfortunately, as the economy and agricultural practices have changed, many venerable barns have collapsed or disappeared. Scores of Routt County barns remain only as memories or faded photographs. On the other hand, there are also inspiring local examples of rehabilitated barns that are again being used for agriculture and dairy operations, as well as educational facilities and residences. Rehabilitated barns deserve credits. There are several non-traditional financial incentives for property owners who wish to rehabilitate their historic structures, including barns. These incentives are not grants, which can be challenging to acquire and manage, but instead, federal and Colorado State historic preservation tax credits. Tax credits reduce one's tax liability directly, dollar for dollar. The most straightforward and easily applied ...

Retirement advice from retired financial experts 17.1.2017 Denver Post: Business
Most retirement advice has a flaw: It’s being given by people who haven’t yet retired. So I asked money experts who have quit the 9-to-5 for their best advice on how to prepare for retirement. They still faced curveballs when it was their turn. Making the right financial moves is important, they said, but so […]

Poor Utahns face big shortage of affordable housing 12.1.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Utah’s poor face a big shortage of affordable rental housing. The number of Utah’s extremely low-income families exceeds the rental units they can afford by more than 38,000 — equivalent to the population of Kearns, according to the state’s first Affordable Housing Assessment and Plan released this week. “It is imperative that Utah take steps to intervene,” said the report by the Department of Workforce Services. It calls for the state to help boost such housing by providing additional tax credi... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Trump effect on 'green' investing: Positive? 18.11.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
New York • Donald Trump’s move into the White House could drive even more dollars into the already hot field of sustainable investing. Wait, what? Trump has called climate change a hoax, said he’d like to pull out of the Paris Agreement on global warming and suggested rolling back the carbon-cutting Clean Power Plan. Isn’t his victory a sign that Americans don’t believe in climate change? Regardless of what was said on the campaign trail, a growing number of investors do care about the environme...

Thoughtful Parenting: Preschool for all Routt County kids 29.8.2016 Steamboat Pilot
Routt County United Way envisions a community in which our children and adults succeed through education, income stability and healthy lives. Why is Routt County United Way so passionate about preschool?  Because early childhood education has a better return on investment than the stock market. The estimated return on investment for high-quality early childhood education is 10 percent. In comparison, the average return on investment in the stock market is 7.2 percent, as quoted by Katie Hamm, director of Early Childhood Policy at the Center for American Progress Action Fund. Routt County United Way’s early childhood education goal is that every 3- and 4-year-old in Routt County has access to quality preschool education.  The supporting facts are telling: Preschool can help combat crime, teen pregnancy and high school dropout rates. When children have the benefit of a high-quality early childhood education, they make cognitive and social gains that prepare them to start school. According to research at ...

Op-ed: EPA should give us leeway to solve our unique ozone issues 21.8.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
The Environmental Protection Agency recently lowered its standards for permissible ground level ozone from 75 parts-per-billion (ppb) to 70 ppb under the Clean Air Act (CAA). Although ozone is a naturally occurring phenomenon, most scientists agree that extreme concentrations of ozone, especially when hovering over cities, can have adverse health effects. If a county or region exceeds EPA’s ozone standard, they designate that county as being in “nonattainment,” which carries with it serious econ... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>
