Author: Access Fund Publish date: Feb 19, 2019 A new study finds that rock climbers are a major economic force for the New River Gorge region of West Virginia, an internationally renowned rock climbing destination, contributing $12.1 million annually in tourism dollars across a three-county region. According to the study led by Dr. James Maples of Eastern Kentucky University, climber spending also supports the presence of 168 jobs in the region and contributes $6.3 million in wages. “Outdoor recreation is an important part of our national economy,” says Dr. Maples. “Recent studies find that climbing is a valuable source of economic activity coming from public lands.

Overall, this provides an important … [Read more...] about New Study Finds Rock Climbers Bring $12.1 Million Annually to New River Gorge Region
Rick Kelleher is a big, white-haired, crisply presented man who looks very much the way you’d expect a Boston Irish power broker to look. If you found yourself sitting next to him on a plane, you might notice how he kept the conversation flowing naturally and emphasized his points with the physicality of a great salesman, dramatically raising his eyebrows and cocking his head. On this morning, Kelleher is seated at a back table in the lobby restaurant of the elegant Boston Harbor Hotel, where the server knows exactly how he likes his house-smoked salmon. He carries himself as if he owns the place, and, in a way, he does.

Shawn Windsor Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EST Dec 10, 2018 Alabama will win it all. Let’s start there. Or maybe it’s Clemson’s turn. I don’t know. Or maybe Oklahoma takes advantage of Alabama’s (relatively) pedestrian defense and upends everyone’s expectation, proving, once and for all, that defense doesn’t matter. More likely, the Crimson Tide rolls. It’s what it does. Ask the Michigan Wolverines, who lost the best safety prospect they’ve had in years because Nick Saban wanted him, and Alabama’s famously stern-faced coach gets what he wants. A reminder that college football remains the least democratic sport we have, where the winners are determined by geography and the stock portfolios of a few dozen alumni.
