Olympic Valley Incorporation Effectively Stymied02.18.16

Andy Wirth also known as the CEO of Squaw Valley Holdings has been mentioned in the press recently for his continued effort to make the Squaw Valley near Lake Tahoe one of the world’s top winter vacation areas. He is involved in both community and environmental service organisations in his home the Squaw Valley. Andy Wirth’s main focus is to improve the area for residents and business’s both young and old. However his recent involvement in a near fatal skydiving accident has changed the course of his efforts slightly. During his recovery he came in contact with Navy Seals in the Squaw Valley area and decided to launch a community called the Wounded Warrior Support.

This Navy Seal foundation raises money to aid Navy Seal members and their families once they return home from deployment. Andy Wirth has made true friends during this difficult recovery period and pledged to give back to their families and community as a whole. This period in his life was very difficult but thanks to members of the Navy Seals who have given him the strength to recover and start life with a fresh purpose.

The summary of the article by the Reno Gazette-Journal can be found below which makes mentions of Andy Wirth.

In recent years the communities around Lake Tahoe and especially Squaw Valley have had difficulties due to bad weather conditions and the threat of an incorporation battle. The weather has not provided for the necessary conditions to let theses winter holiday destinations thrive. The incorporation battle was over the Olympic Valley which is also the home of the Squaw Valley. It’s CEO, Andy Wirth has mentioned that there will be relief to come in the future in the form of favourable weather and the withdrawal of the threat of incorporation. Mr Wirth and his holding have been opposing the incorporation for some time now as he says it would result in higher taxes as well as a drop in services that people depended on. These include snow plowing and necessary road maintenance. However those who where in favour of the incorporation said that Mr Wirth had his own agenda to improve local development and the construction of a gondola which will connect Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley. The incorporation was halted and now efforts can be made to start a healing process.

Beneful-Complete Nutrition For Dogs02.18.16

Like many others, I believe that my dog is part of my family. Though he is part of my family, he’s not human and can’t truly be treated as such. Some dog owners try to feed their pets as they feed themselves, spending hours preparing and cooking their dog’s food each day. That may be wonderful for some, but dogs require a certain balance of proteins, vitamins and minerals for optimum health. When they’re fed basically a human diet, it’s easy for them to come up lacking in certain nutrients, possibly causing them more harm than good in the long run. Another factor in homemade diets is time. Not many dog owners have the time to chop, slice, dice and cook their dog’s food each day. The time spent preparing food could be better spent exploring the neighborhood for a walk, an outing at the dog park or even a frisbee toss in the backyard.

For most dog owners, purchasing on Amazon a comprehensive dog food, such as Purina Beneful ensures that the dog is getting all the nutrition he needs, along with a taste he loves, with little to no work. It’s as simple as opening a bag or popping a top of a can. Beneful has the perfect balance of protein such as beef, chicken, salmon or turkey, mixed with a blend of vegetables such as carrots, tomatoes, peas and green beans. Added to this mixture is an assortment vitamins and minerals like B-12, D-3, zinc and selenium, ensuring this dog food has everything necessary to provide the proper nutrition for the dog’s entire life.

I know when I feed my dog Beneful, I’m giving him just what he needs to be happy, healthy and strong for many years. I couldn’t do any less for my best friend.
