Trump effect on 'green' investing: Positive? 18.11.2016 Salt Lake Tribune

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.

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).

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>

Op-ed: Tax credits have sparked development in Utah 7.8.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Many years ago in her seminal work, the “Death and Life of Great American Cities,” Jane Jacobs in an effort to kindle a movement that she hoped would stem the tide of accelerating urban decline, confronted the cannons of “orthodox planning”, and proclaimed; “cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created for everybody.” Now, a half century later, the National Development Council (NDC) still subscribes to the fundamental principal th...
