Routt County commissioners hesitate to invest public monies in community solar garden 16.9.2014 Steamboat Pilot
The Routt County commissioners placed an emphasis on the goal of transitioning to “future energy economies” in their recent strategic planning process, and they already oversee a significant solar array on top of the Justice Center on the west side of Steamboat Springs. But they weren’t ready on Monday to tell Facilities Director Tim Winter to continue to explore investing in the new community solar garden that Clean Energy Collective is planning to begin constructing next month in Craig in collaboration with Yampa Valley Electric Association. CEC is a for-profit company that has built similar community solar arrays in Colorado mountain towns. The company allows individual households to spend as little as $850 on a small portion of the larger solar facility, in order to offset a portion (or all) of their electricity usage without having to invest thousands of dollars to put their own grid on top of their homes. The solar garden offers the added benefit of being ideally situated on its planned site for ...

More funds look to socially responsible investing 6.9.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
New York • Instead of lending to just the government or some faceless corporation, what if your bond mutual fund also helped to vaccinate kids around the world? Or helped finance a clean-water project or solar-energy farm? More mutual fund managers are seeking out bonds that not only do well but also promote a positive impact on the environment, society and corporate governance. It’s a concept called socially responsible investing, and it’s long been dominated by stock mutual funds. But a prolif...

First National Bank of the Rockies becomes Bank of the San Juans 6.9.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Ten First National Bank of the Rockies branches were renamed Bank of the San Juans following an acquisition by Montana-based Glacier Bancorp Inc., according to a news release. According to the release, customers will notice few changes at the Grand Junction, Steamboat Springs, Craig, Hayden, Meeker, Rangely and Oak Creek banking offices. “We are a true community bank with small-town Colorado roots and values that are very similar to First National Bank of the Rockies,” said Bank of the San Juans founder and President Art Chase. “You’re going to get some of the benefits of dealing with a larger bank when you are a Bank of the San Juans customer, but you’re still going to get the true benefit of a bank that genuinely values customer service above all else.” Bank of the San Juans is a Durango-based community bank that offers the personal service of a small bank with the resources and benefits of a large one, the release stated. Founded in 1998, the bank has grown to include 13 branches in communities along ...

Gregory W. Smith: We work for Colorado, Routt County 15.8.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Ellen Bonnifield retired after working for 30 years in the South Routt School District. After a career educating local school children, she’s now able to give back to her community through a variety of volunteer activities, including teaching sewing for her granddaughter’s 4H Club and leading tours of Historic Routt County. Why do I mention Ellen? Because she is a Public Employees’ Retirement Association retiree. And like so many of her retired colleagues here in Routt County, her career of public service isn’t quite over. She, and 500,000 other current and former public employees in Colorado, inspire and motivate all of us who have the pleasure to work on their behalf at Colorado PERA. In late June, Colorado PERA released its annual financial report containing another clean audit by KPMG and showing earnings of more than $6 billion in investment performance, a return of 15.6 percent and an improved funded ratio. This strong investment performance comes even with a more conservative assumption on future ...
