Positive Impact On Youth Today Brings Urbana’s GoFundMe Page For Earth Force To The Front

Earth force is a unique charity working to challenge children to become brilliant future members in society through helping their communities build better environmental protection. Jon Urbana is the man who is backing these amazingly intelligent efforts. The future of the world is at the hand of the children of tomorrow and Earth Force is seeing to it this earth is around for at least thousand more years. This is a fantastic cause for Jon to be backing and in his other day job which is running lacrosse camps for youth, he is instilling a strong work ethic on and off the field.

This often allows the youth he works with at camp to do great things in the community. Imagine children that know about gardening programs, recycling programs and take these so that they can put them into action in their communities. At school these children Jon has worked tirelessly with on Twitter (jonurbana1) to strengthen their resolve for creating change in the world. Children in the classroom being competent in seeing to it that there are recycling programs where papers go into bins in each classroom instead of into the garbage. They are also learning via presentations through Slideshare and other channels of Urbana’s, like Facebook, Instagram, and Crunchbase about the different ways to use recycled goods.

The recycled goods are not just the typical paper but think about metal re-purposed into different holiday ornaments. Jeans made into the nicest softest blankets you can find. These kids have seen how even toilet paper is made of recycled materials. So much of these efforts already established but in teaching these children a love for the environment they will become members of a future society that comes up with a million ways to make things last just a little bit longer.

Thankfully Jon is making a difference through his go fund me backing of Earth Force but everyone can work hard like him to see this mission into a positive future.

Incorporate Olympic Valley Didn’t Do The Math…

Incorporate Olympic Valley has been in the news quite a bit lately, and this is due to the recent financial situations pending with the future of the area. There are many individuals who are very against incorporating Olympic Valley. Cityhood for this valley is something that may be a fiscal nightmare for the area. There are fewer than 1,000 residents that live in Olympic Valley and fiscal experts are saying that it would be nearly impossible for this are to support themselves as a city. Cityhood for this small area would be a recipe for disaster as incorporation would cause more problems than solutions.

The main source of revenue for the city would be a tax that is imposed upon hotel guests, and it is very unlikely that this tax would cover all the costs that it takes in order to run a city. There would be much more needed than taxes on hotel guests to make cityhood a viable option. If this area was to become a city, there is an estimated deficit that would be growing more and more by 2017. There were some residents that were pushing towards cityhood with the announcement of a new hotel and 300,000 square foot center for commercial development. Residents believed that cityhood would give them much more say on these types of developments, but they didn’t think of the fiscal implications of this incorporation.

Experts have said,“The independent study confirms the prevailing wisdom, that creating a town of 500 people, based on one revenue source and dependent on tourism and weather conditions, doesn’t make sense.” There is not a stable enough type of revenue for this area to be incorporated into a township. There are many more sources of revenue that need to go into a city on order for it to be incorporated.
