CNN names Eagle Mountain as youngest, Saratoga Springs as 12th youngest in nation

Posted by David Lifferth on May 23, 2015 at 9:39pm 0 Comments

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/765636447/Raising-the-next-generation-4-Utah-towns-make-CNNs-Best-Places-to-Live-youngest-cities-list.html?pg=all

Age matters for CNN's Best Places to Live top 25 youngest cities, and Utah finishes first, with Eagle Mountain claiming the No. 1 spot and three other cities making the list — more than for any other state.

The CNN ranking is taken from 2013 census data projections, and only towns from the Best Places database with populations of 10,000 to 50,000 were included.

According to the rankings, Eagle Mountain — with its population of 23,070 and a median age of 19.9 — is the youngest city from the Best Places database, just edging out…

Where Do the Children Play?

Last year the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted the songwriter who rhetorically asked, “Where Do the Children Play?” This year, the artist formerly known as Cat Stevens got his answer in a report from RealtyTrac®, the nation’s leading source for comprehensive housing data.

The new study ranks U.S. zip codes with populations over 5,000 that have the highest percentage of residents age 5 and under. The data is based on 2012…

Financial info on SB97 from State Education Financial Analyst Ben Leishman

Posted by David Lifferth on May 1, 2015 at 11:30am 0 Comments

I got approval State Education Financial Analyst Ben Leishman to post his info on my blog site.


From: Benjamin Leishman

Subject: RE: SB97 benefit to Alpine School District

 

Representative,



Sorry, it took me a little longer to get the information than I anticipated.

The attached MS Excel document has the figures that produced the 9.4 percent increase Sen. Stephenson mentioned.  As I mentioned last week, this figure compares “all funds” and not just “state” funds.  It also is looking at appropriated (2014 General Session) to appropriated (2015 General Session).  This figure does not take into account supplemental appropriations the Legislature made to the current year (FY 2015) budget during this past session.  When you compare the FY 2015 revised appropriation to the FY 2016 appropriation, the percent change is 8.9 percent.

When you look just at state funds (General, Education, and Uniform School Funds), there was a 6.2 percent…

Clear economic difference between Ronald Regan and Barack Obama

Posted by David Lifferth on April 29, 2015 at 5:01pm 0 Comments

Trickle Down Economics versus Trickle Down Socialism

Ronald Reagan’s economic plan saw GDP surge at a 3.5% clip – 4.9% after the recession. That’s a 32% bump.

During the Obama years, thanks to his big government policies, the US economy has stalled. Today the quarterly GDP was announced. The GDP for the first quarter of 2015 braked more sharply than expected at only a .2% pace. The US economy has grown an anemic 9.6% during the Obama years (excluding today’s dismal number).

Of course, Obama’s record on job growth is also much worse than President Reagan’s record.

Net job growth has declined under Obama. By the end of the second year of…

I am always working to be better prepared. I have encouraged friends and family members to participate in the Great Utah Shakeout and make plans to be prepared for an earthquake or other natural disaster.
