To Incorporate Olympic Valley Isn’t Going To Happen

Summary From Reno-Gazette Journal:
There have been a lot of changes taking place in the Olympic Valley region in California. The snowfall in the area has been quite light in recent seasons, and this has made business difficult for the area’s ski resorts. The conditions simply haven’t been as good on the slopes in recent times. However, the past year, this trend appeared to have reversed itself.

This is merely one of the issues that the area has faced though. There was a period of time when a major company was considering coming into the area to manage all of the ski resorts. If this had happened, it wouldn’t have had positive effects on the area’s resorts. Instead, it would have put a serious drain on the local economy. Luckily, the opponents of the incorporation prevented this from happening.

If the ski resorts of the area had become incorporated, businesses of various types would have suffered. The ski resorts likely wouldn’t have done as well, and this would have made the area less attractive to tourists in the winter. This would have meant that there would be fewer people using the services of other sectors of the economy, such as hotels, nightclubs, restaurants, and bars.

The damage to the economy would have had the power to be damaging to the public sector. The tighter budgets of the area would have meant the local municipalities wouldn’t be as easily able to maintain safe roadways in the winter. Dangerous travel conditions would have created an additional deterrent to tourism to the region, which would have created even more damage to the economy.

There was a very long debate about the incorporation of Olympic Valley’s ski resorts. Those that ran the area’s ski resorts were among the fiercest of opponents of the incorporation. One of the biggest opponents of it was Andy Wirth, who manages Squaw Valley ski resort. He provided hundreds of thousands of dollars to oppose the incorporation.

His effort to prevent it likely did have an impact. The debate finally ended when the incorporation plans were canceled. So, the area will be spared any negative economic effects from this. Hopefully, the weather will continue to cooperate during ski season. The snowfall was good this year, and we can only hope that will be the case in years ahead.

Some Information On Andy Wirth:

Andy Wirth has been a successful executive of Squaw Valley ski resort. However, he also is very well known for his opening up of the mountain to Navy Seals. The mountain serves a very important part in their training. Furthermore, Andy Wirth is a well known enthusiast of skiing and other sports himself

A Brief Look at Crystal Hunt

In this day and age, having an entertainment career that spans from childhood well into adulthood is hard to come by. Actress Crystal Hunt is living proof of this fact of life.

Crystal Hunt was born on February 5, 1985 and is a native of Clearwater, Florida. The earliest she had involved herself in the entertainment business came when she was only two years old, when she was actively participating in pageants for acting. When she got older she moved on from simple acting pageants to starring in commercials and television advertisements, a notable example being anti-drug ads alongside pop band *NSYNC to celebrate the Disney Company’s 25th anniversary.  She has pictures from that time in her career on the official Crystal Hunt Facebook.

Crystal Hunt’s big claim to fame is starring as the character of Lizzie Spaulding in the CBS daytime soap opera, Guiding Light. She was a regular on the show for three years, starting in 2003 and her work with the series earned her a Daytime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series in 2005. She was also recognized with a Soap Opera Digest Award for her role on the show in that very same year. After leaving Guiding Light, Hunt took on another role in a soap opera, this time on ABC’s One Life to Live, where she played the role of Stacy Morasco on and off for three years, starting in 2009. Though she left the show only a year after first debuting, she would pop up as a recurring character through her remaining time with the show.

Although soap operas were her biggest and most prominent roles to date, Crystal Hunt has taken part in various other movies and television shows throughout the course of her career, and has even branched out to be a photographer. Hunt has played roles of different sizes in other films such as The Derby Stallion in 2005, Sydney White in 2007 and the summer hit from 2015 Magic Mike XXL, with a sizable role. Also in 2015, Hunt began starring in a reality television series called Queens of Drama, where she starred as herself among several other notable entertainers in business.

Venezuela Experiencing Economic Distress

Venezuela has long been a socialist nation in which the government has had a considerable amount of control over private industries and individual freedoms. Nowadays expert Adrian Jose Velasquez Figueroa sees the nation is beginning to experience one of the biggest economic collapses in recent history. This collapse has been caused by socialist economic and political policies dating back to the 1970’s. However these policies have become even more restrictive during the regime of former President Hugo Chavez. Under his leadership, the nation has experienced a number of authoritarian policies which include the nationalization of the oil industry, other industries being nationalized, excessive government spending, public benefits, and price controls. His regime has also participated in elections that are not free, intimidation of the media and also putting political opponents in prison. As a result Venezuela has become very distressed economically due to a lack of adopting free market economics.
With the economic policies Jose Figueroa added, the people of Venezuela have began to suffer the effects of socialism. One of the main problems facing Venezuela is the fact that its currency has become hyper inflated by up to 720% along with its currency dropping in value by up to 93%. With a declining currency value and hyperinflation, Venezuelan citizens are unable to afford the the things they need to survive such as food and water. With a shortage of these resources, the nations has adopted rations and therefore many people are unable to be properly nourished. There are also power shortages, elimination of long distance phone service and also inadequate medical care.

Fans Sing Praises of Chaz Dean

When I was a little girl I began to get obsessed with hair. I would spend my days washing my baby doll’s hair. One day I even decided to cut her hair thinking that it would magically grow back. When it never grew back I was heartbroken. It was hair I thought all hair grew back and it hurt me tremendously when I realized I had ruined my baby doll’s life. As I got older I realized I really had a passion for hair and this passion led me to becoming a hair stylist. This has changed my life.
For so long my clients have come to me asking what the secret is to great hair and I have never been able to give a clear answer. I can’t give a clear answer because I really do not know what the secret is. All I know is that every woman’s hair is different and it takes time to get great hair, or so I thought.

Recently, a blogger at Bustle dispelled my myth about how it takes time to have great hair. She used WEN By Chaz for a week and instantly had great hair. See her results: http://www.wen.com/before-after.html

Wen By Chaz is no stranger to the world. It is a hair care product that Chaz Dean created to help women who have various types of hair. Since it’s release women across the world have been singing Dean’s praises. Wen is sold on Sephora beauty product stores and online on Ebay.
