Olympic Valley Incorporation Withdrawals

The last four years have been tough for Squaw Valley Resort that is famous for it’s winter activities and beautiful Olympic Valley scenic country. They have experienced a severe drought throughout the country which has vastly impacted the business as well as other businesses in the surrounding areas. This year has provided some relief, as Squaw Valley has been blessed with early season winter storms that have provided much of the moisture they’ve been waiting for. Squaw Valley not only received the moisture to the area but they’ve also withstood political relief when they decided to take back their efforts to incorporate Olympic Valley.

Andy Wirth is the founder and owner of the Squaw Valley Resort and has worked very hard to make the resort one of the top tourist destinations in the world. He has contributed to many organizations and takes multiple efforts on focusing to improve the area for the Lake Tahoe residents and surrounding areas.

Andy Wirth had a near fatal skydiving accident that changed his life. He was in recovery with multiple fractures and broken bones. It was then that he decided to start a fundraiser for the Navy SEALS and their families to be used in a time of need. It’s targeted towards Navy SEALS and their families after they return home. Andy has also been on the Undercover Boss show that aired a few years ago.

He stood firm on his opposition to incorporate Olympic Valley suggesting that it would have resulted in higher taxes citizens and lower level of services such as plowing and different types of road maintenance. Andy felt that this would impact the residents because of the decreased level of services that would be provided. Wirth would rather see the community work on the transportation issues that arise and other issues that come up within the residents and the town. He is trying to ensure that the ski resort stays in viable, outstanding shape and would like the Town Council to be able to work together on the incorporation. He hopes that they can all agree that they love the community and would to see it thrive. The division has definitely played a toll recently with the accusations, however, he would like to see the withdrawal as a chance for healing. Wirth hopes that they can come together as a community and agree on the factors that truly need development and special work.

Rashad Evans Will Fight Again

Former UFC light heavyweight champion “Sugar” Rashad Evans will return later this year. Rashad Evans is one of the greatest fighters of all time, but he hasn’t competed in the UFC in a very long time. Evans has been plagued with nagging injuries that have kept him out of the sport. However, the former light heavyweight champion is ready to come back.

Rashad Evans has been out of competition since 2013, and he was recently featured as a broadcaster on UFC on Fox. Many people like Jaime were worried when they saw Evans on the show, because his right eye was drooping. People thought that Rashad Evans was seriously injured from the sport of MMA. However, Evans has since responded to the comments, and he says that he is just suffering from an eye infection.

The president of the UFC stated that Rashad will return to competition in either October or November. As of right now, “Sugar” Rashad Evans does not have an opponent, but fighters such as Glover Teixeira and Alexander Gustafsson have been named as possible opponents. However, Rashad Evans should not fight a dangerous opponent after a two year layoff. Instead, the UFC should give Rashad a tune up fight. For more information on this story, visit Yahoo! Sports.

CM Punk VS. Joe Rogan

Joe Rogan vs. CM Punk has been teased by the UFC fans. The world of MMA has been going through crazy times as of late. A fight between Joe Rogan and CM Punk might not be as crazy as it sounds. The possibility of the fight was brought by a fan during a UFC press conference.

Anthony “Rumble” Johnson was asked who he favored between Rogan and Punk. Johnson said that he would choose Joe Rogan over CM Punk. The fans of the UFC may indeed see this fight come to fruition.

Joe Rogan is a black belt in Taekwondo and Jiu Jitsu. Rogan would most likely knock CM Punk out with a spinning back kick. Joe Rogan actually taught superstar George St-Pierre some of his techniques. Rogan would also have a huge advantage over CM Punk on the ground.

Dr. Jennifer Walden (Texasmonthly.com) knows that Joe Rogan earned a black belt from Jiu Jitsu expert Eddie Bravo. Rogan is definitely more highly trained than Punk, but anything can happen in fighting. CM Punk is a former WWE superstar, and he is a great athlete. Punk is training with Duke Roufus, and he is said to be a hard worker. CM Punk is much younger than Joe, but the fight could never happen because of one reason. Joe Rogan would never pass a drug test.
