Investment corner: Asset allocation

Investors often think about which companies are doing well, what sector is hot, and where the market may be headed in the next few months. But more important than any of those is the question of proper asset allocation. Studies indicate that asset allocation is actually the main determinant of portfolio return, even ahead of fund selection. People who fail to set up a portfolio with a proper asset allocation are very likely leaving money on the table with their investments.

What is asset allocation? Asset allocation refers to the strategy of dividing your investment portfolio among different asset classes, such as stocks, bonds, and cash, to optimize risk and return based on financial goals, risk tolerance, and investment horizon. The goal is to create a diversified portfolio with an eye towards maximizing returns while minimizing risk.

The primary asset classes are:

1. Stocks, also called “equities”. When you own a stock, you actually own a small piece of the company. A good mix of stocks brings the potential for high returns, but also greater risk and volatility than the other classes listed here.

2. Bonds, also called “fixed income”. These are essentially a company or government entity borrowing money from you in exchange for periodic interest payments and the return of your principal at maturity. Bonds are thought of as less risky than stocks, and usually have a lower rate of return than stocks.

3. Cash and cash equivalents. These include highly liquid investments like money market funds and government treasuries. These investments usually offer a lower rate of return than stocks and bonds, but a high level of security with little volatility and risk.

Now to the key point, how to best allocate your assets. The optimal asset allocation varies from investor to investor, depending primarily on your financial goals, your risk tolerance, and your time horizon.

In terms of risk tolerance, someone who struggles to take on risk should allocate fewer assets to stocks and more to bonds and cash. This investor is accepting the probability of a lower return over time in exchange for greater security and less volatility. In Tahoe terms, are you a black diamond skier who is willing to take on more risk in order to ski faster and get in more runs, or are you more of a green circle rider who is happy to give up some runs in order to have a smoother ride and less risk? The black diamond investor is someone who is more comfortable with stocks and a riskier portfolio with the expectation of higher returns.

Your investment time horizon also plays an important role in determining your ideal asset allocation. The key concept here is that you don’t want to get stuck selling off your stocks at a loss during a down market. Investors who have many years before they will need to start cashing in their investments can afford to take on more risk in this regard, as the stock market

has historically risen in almost every 10-year period over the past 125 years. It has risen in every 20-year period during that same timespan. On the other hand, if you are going to start needing investment income in just a few short years, it might make sense to have more of your money in bonds and cash, in order to ensure that the money is there when you need it. In that case, you don’t need to eliminate stocks completely, but you would have less than a long-term investor.

Whatever asset allocation you settle on, you’ll still need to diversify your holdings within each asset class. Holding 10 different healthcare stocks is not a good strategy, since individual stocks in sectors like healthcare often move in tandem. You’ll also want to rebalance your portfolio periodically to make sure that your asset allocation stays as desired.

Good luck with your asset allocation design! And however you allocate your dollars, invest smartly and invest well!

Treating GERD for better quality of life

Living with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) can be challenging, but with a well-designed treatment plan, you can effectively manage symptoms and improve quality of life.

GERD is a chronic condition characterized by the flow of stomach acid back into the esophagus — the tube that connects your throat and stomach. GERD can manifest as frequent heartburn, regurgitation, chest discomfort, or waking up with a sore throat or cough.

Some foods and beverages, such as caffeine, citrus fruits, fatty and fried foods, chocolate, and alcohol are known triggers for GERD. Avoiding these foods can make socializing and dining out a daunting experience, especially around the holidays, and can become a source of anxiety.

A practical approach to addressing GERD may include a variety of approaches, including lifestyle modifications, medications, and if necessary, surgical interventions, as well as diagnostic tests.

Lifestyle modifications

Making changes to your everyday routine can have a significant impact on reducing GERD symptoms:

  • Avoid potentially triggering foods and beverages, such as fried or greasy foods, tomato sauces, and vinegars.
  • Opt for smaller, more frequent meals as opposed to large infrequent servings.
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing around your abdomen, since tight clothes can squeeze your abdomen and push acid into your esophagus.
  • Stay upright three hours after meals, and avoid eating within three hours of bedtime.


Some medication can be used to reduce acid production and alleviate symptoms. Commonly-prescribed medications for GERD include:

  • Over-the-counter antacids
  • Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and H2-receptor blockers

Diagnostic Testing

Two diagnostic tests commonly used to evaluate GERD are esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) and Bravo pH monitoring:

  • During an EGD, a surgeon inserts a flexible tube with a tiny camera into the esophagus, stomach, and digestive system. This diagnostic procedure helps identify any abnormalities, such as inflammation or damage caused by acid reflux.
  • The Bravo pH monitoring system, a small wireless probe, is a groundbreaking diagnostic tool that can be implanted during an EGD to further investigate the upper digestive tract. The Bravo system measures the frequency and duration of acid reflux episodes over a 48-hour period, providing crucial information for treatment and management of GERD. The capsule holding the system dissolves and is evacuated by your digestion system, with no need to have it removed.

Surgical interventions

In cases where lifestyle modifications and medications fail to provide adequate relief, surgical options, including various endoscopic procedures and minimally invasive anti-reflux surgical procedures, may be considered.

Speak with your healthcare provider for treatment options to take control of GERD and enjoy a better quality of life.

Dr. W. Reid Shepard is a board-certified general surgeon, specializing in anti-reflux and minimally invasive surgery. Barton General surgery performs GERD diagnostic testing, including EGD and state-of -the-art Bravo pH monitoring technology. For more information on treatment of gastrointestinal issues, visit

Cross-country coach Austin Angell coaches three generations of runners

It’s rare that someone, not only has an impact on one young person’s life, but then goes on to mentor three generations of that person’s family.

This is just what happened when cross-country coach, Austin Angell entered the life of then South Tahoe High School student, Darrell Schue in 1975. It wasn’t until 22 years later that Angell would coach Darrell’s daughter, Lauren in 1997 at South Tahoe Middle School.

Sixteen years later, Darrell’s grandson, Ethan would become the third generation of the Schue family to be coached by Austin Angell.

Now in his 48th year of coaching cross-country, Coach Angell says he plans on working until he hits his 50th year.

Before becoming coach for both South Tahoe High School and South Tahoe Middle School, Coach Angell participated in the Boston and New York marathons, and attended every California State Championship track and field meet.

To say the least, Coach Angell has been a hero and a mentor to those training under him for the past forty-eight total, and twenty-five years at South Tahoe Middle School. He’s led his cross-country team to too many championships to name.

Darrell Schue started training with his friends who were cross-country runners. “I actually was a track athlete, and I ran the high hurdles and high jumped. In 1975, Austin helped out Coach Les Wright and Coach Jim Jones with the cross-country and track team. At that time our cross-country team was a top ranked cross-country team in California,” says Darrell Schue.

Coach Angell tells his athletes, “Train and put in the work, and you will be successful.”

It was hearing these words of wisdom that led Darrell and his cross-country teammates, The Vikings, to winning most all of the meets they competed in.

In the early days, a lot of the young cross-country players on Coach Angell’s team couldn’t understand why a man 5x their age was coaching them. Those first practice workouts were dubbed “Old Man Camp.” Little did they know about their coach’s incredible past as an athlete. Such as being a water polo player in college and running a series of races in San Francisco and New York.

It was soon realized by generations to come that having an older coach means they have more experience and knowledge to pass on.

Darrell Schue says the fact that Coach Angell has a positive and helpful attitude, and has also competed himself, is what was inspiring to him.

“Coach was always competing in local races himself. We had ‘all comers’ track meets every week at the middle school in the summer for years, and coach would be there competing and helping out,” adds Schue.

Darrell says he’s proud and honored to have had his daughter, Lauren and now his grandson, Ethan, running cross-country as the Timber Wolves on Coach Angell’s team.

No matter when Coach Angell retires, his legacy will be felt and never forgotten by both the Schue family, and those families that have come before and after.

“Our community is fortunate to have Coach Angell encouraging and coaching the kids over the last 48 years! His commitment and dedication to the kids is truly inspiring. He has touched so many lives in such a positive way. I have great admiration and respect for him,” says Schue.

Editor’s note: This article was written on behalf of the Schue family to thank Coach Angell. Coach Angell could not be reached for this article.

Tahoe Beach Club gives thanks by giving back to community

STATELINE, Nev. — In the spirit of the holidays, Tahoe Beach Club demonstrated its commitment to the local community by extending a helping hand to those who serve it. On Thanksgiving Day, the dedicated staff, led by General Manager Kevin Speer, delivered a Thanksgiving meal to Tahoe Douglas Fire Station 23, a gesture that exemplifies the Club’s values of gratitude and community engagement.

Tahoe Beach Club’s Thanksgiving Day effort was a labor of love that brought comfort and joy to the firefighters and first responders on call at Tahoe Douglas Fire Station 23. The generous spread included a succulent roasted turkey, maple spiced glazed carrots, roasted quince, sausage and sage stuffing, all topped off with a delectable pumpkin pie accompanied by chantilly cream.

It was a culinary feast that not only celebrated the holiday but also conveyed the Club’s sincere appreciation for the brave men and women who selflessly protect and serve the Lake Tahoe community.

General Manager Kevin Speer, who played a pivotal role in coordinating this initiative, expressed his gratitude, saying, “We are immensely grateful for the tireless efforts of firefighters and first responders in our community. We wanted to take this opportunity to thank them and show our appreciation. It’s a small token of our gratitude for the incredible work they do.”

Tahoe Beach Club have served both firefighters and police over the last two holiday seasons and plan to make it a yearly tradition. Tahoe Beach Club hopes to inspire others in the community to find their own ways to support and appreciate those who make Lake Tahoe a safe and wonderful place to live.

Road warriors: Tahoe East Shore Alliance celebrates removal of U.S. 50 road diet from NDOT plan

The Nevada Department of Transportation, after having been met with vocal community resistance, has removed the “road diet” portion of the U.S. 50 Tahoe East Shore Corridor Management plan. 

NDOT said they will continue to seek possibilities that provide solutions as multifaceted as the problems they aim to solve. 

The problems identified through NDOT’s analysis included difficulty turning in/out of side streets and driveways, bike and pedestrian safety, on-highway parking and speeding. The proposed solutions didn’t go over well with the community it would impact and protests led to an organized grassroots group set on being heard.

A coalition of residents and neighbors, unified by their shared abhorrence, formed TESA, the Tahoe East Shore Alliance. Armed with road and transportation experts, they set out to verify NDOT’s facts and challenge their proposal.

“NDOT’s plan to remove two of four lanes of Hwy 50’s east shore corridor was first rolled out in 2017,” TESA’s website states when residents came out to protest six years ago, “NDOT retreated until returning in ’22 they returned with a similar plan to reduce large sections of the 13-mile corridor from Stateline to Spooner Summit to two lanes with a center turning lane, sometimes referred to as a suicide lane for the dangers posed by drivers misusing the lane to circumvent traffic gridlock. In traffic vernacular, this is called a ‘road diet.'”

NDOT estimated 7 million trips pass through the corridor annually, the opinion that safety is at the top of priorities is a fact that unites more than it divides but how to achieve said safety is a source of debate and has been since this summer.

The Tahoe Regional Planning agency calls the CMP changes “fundamental cornerstones of transportation changes” that need to happen for safety. 

NDOT describes the US 50 CMP as “an integrated, multi-modal transportation study with the purpose of balancing mobility and safety enhancements with the unique range of other corridor interests through an ongoing collaboration among stakeholders”.

“We want safety as much as anyone,” said Brett Tibbitts, Founder, TESA, who added ” Caldor was a wake-up call to all of us. The evacuation was chaotic despite a 4-lane US 50. Imagine that evacuation scenario with only two lanes.”

Asserting the road diet would lead South Lake Tahoe into a Lahaina destiny, TESA started making waves at NDOT Board of director meetings, demanding the attention of officials and they got it.

During the most recent board meeting NDOT delivered findings from a survey and concluded: “As a result of recent lane reductions for construction and utility work observations have shown that traffic levels are high enough to back up traffic and result in delays beyond the desired speed reduction. Due to this observation and current traffic levels NDOT will no longer consider lane reductions as a safety strategy is no longer being pursued”.

“When we began this effort to keep US 50 four lanes, It felt a bit like David going up against Goliath,” TESA Tech team member Robert Byren and former Chief Technologist for Raytheon’s Space & Airborne Systems, told the Tribune.

“Road diets were never designed for rural settings, especially on alpine arterial highways. Peak traffic conditions on US 50 regularly exceed maximum thresholds for the use of road diets. Using Federal Highway Administration language, we must conclude that US 50 is not a “good candidate” for a road diet. It’s a non-starter,” Byren added.

Byren poured over information from 17 sources, among them NDOT’s CMP, news articles covering past wildfire devastation, even Caltrans’ investigative findings from the 2018 Paradise fire, to create “The Wildfire Evacuation Dilemma — A South Lake Tahoe Story”. The 16 page document will soon be published detailing a potential reality no one wants.

“We all agree that there can be improvements made,” Stephen Ascuaga, Nevada District 2 Representative, said during the Transportation Board of Directors meeting November 13. 

“I appreciate everyone’s efforts,” while expressing gratitude to the multiple agencies and the community for putting their efforts in, Ascuaga noted the complex stretch of highway from Spooner Summit to Stateline presents a “variety of different personalities of a roadway including traffic volume, speeds, surroundings and lane configuration” 

Echoing Ascuaga’s comments, Nevada Governor Joe Lombardo, added “there were points given on both sides of the road diet but the path that we are going to go is probably the better path and will probably eliminate 4 hours of public comment”. 

Not everyone agrees with detouring from the road diet.

TRPA’s Jeff Cowen told the Tribune, “When we saw the lane reductions go away we really saw a lot of the potential safety benefits go away too”.

“Critical safety concerns remain in certain areas, especially those that were considered for lane reconfigurations. We will work with NDOT to ensure those areas are the focus of early action measures and further study,” Cowen said in a later statement to the Tribune.

“Whenever a road diet is considered you have to look at why,” TESA’s Road Diet expert Randal O’Toole.

60 years ago, in the fall of ’63, construction began on the modern US 50, revealing the 4-lane arterial highway in the spring of ’64.

NDOTs CMP would revert the scenic byway to something more like the original 2-lane roadway of 1962.

O’Toole has provided nationwide analyses of more than one hundred land-use and transportation plans, including plans for national forests, national parks, metropolitan regions, and transit systems, have made him one of the nation’s experts on public land management, urban and regional growth, and transportation.

“What I see in the Tahoe area is a nationwide trend and isn’t any different from what I’m seeing in places like San Francisco, Denver, and Portland”, O’Toole said climate and safety have been used as crutches for policy makers long before climate was an issue. 

“During the Camp Fire in 2018, people using a primary evacuation route to leave the area experienced a significant traffic delay because of recent road improvements that reduced roadway capacity” according to a preliminary investigation report by Caltrans Division of Research, Innovation and System Information entitled Traffic Modeling of Potential Emergency Wildfire Evacuation Routes.

“I don’t believe that it really mattered, I don’t think there’s any town in the world prepared with a roadway infrastructure that could evacuate their entire town all at once. They’re just not built to do that,” Former Paradise Mayor Jody Jones said about the catastrophe in Paradise, Nov 2018.

South Lake Tahoe Chief of Police David Stevenson told the Tribune “The pinch point where all the roads connect to 50 at lake parkway is the bigger issue for a future evacuation, similar to Caldor.”

Stevenson added the agencies would, as with any emergency response in the basin, work together to coordinate a solution in the event of an emergency.

“I’m all for NDOT working on ways to make it safer for everyone, but due to our fire and evacuation conditions we can’t afford any reduction in lanes,” Scott Lindgren, Tahoe Douglas Fire Chief, told the Tribune “I absolutely support keeping it four lanes with no restrictions for evacuation safety and general traffic. I also support center turn lanes to help with flow. We definitely have some safety concerns at 50/28, Zephyr Point Conference grounds (dead man’s curve), and by Zephyr Cove Resort. People definitely drive way too fast. Speed and alcohol are big contributors to the safety of our citizens along 50.”

Currently, the only funded projects are: the new traffic signal at Warrior Way, Round Hill Pines entry improvements, and resurfacing of US 50 currently planned for 2025, which could include some early action to improve striping and/or signage. 

Mid and long-term improvements will take more time to be constructed with possible implementation over the next five – 20 years depending on funding availability, other state and agency priorities through the One Nevada Transportation Plan. 

“NDOT will further evaluate options to improve the existing intersection to make turns safer and easier,” said NDOT spokesperson Meg Ragonese, “Left turns between U.S. 50 and State Route 28 have been a public concern expressed during our corridor management plan public outreach”. 

Plans outlined and proposed as part of the U.S. 50 CMP currently show two roundabouts; a roundabout is suggested for the State Route 28/Hwy 50 junction as well as the intersection at Lake Parkway.

Ragonese said the final report will be published in 2024.

Fish and Wildlife Service seeks public comment on draft strategy to manage invasive barred owls

LAKE TAHOE, Calif./Nev. – The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is seeking public input on a draft environmental impact statement and draft Barred Owl Management Strategy that addresses the threat of the non-native and invasive barred owls to native northern and California spotted owls. Populations of the northern spotted owl, which is listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act, are rapidly declining due to habitat loss and competition with barred owls.

Based on a recent analysis, northern spotted owl populations in study areas throughout their range declined by 35% to more than 80% over the past two decades.

“Humans have altered our natural resources to a point of no return (some think more optimistically), and both scientists and great minds are doing their best to revert or slow down the doomed direction we are headed. Habitat reduction, industrialization, and logging has ruined a lot of spotted owl nesting areas,” said Sarah Hockensmith, Outreach Director, Tahoe Institute for Natural Science.

California spotted owls, which the Service proposed for ESA listing earlier this year, face a similar risk from barred owl competition as barred owl populations continue to expand southward. 

“We’ve been working with partners to manage northern and California spotted owl habitat for years, but we also urgently need a management tool that addresses the increasing barred owl threat,” said Kessina Lee, state supervisor for the Service’s Oregon office. “If finalized, this management strategy and associated permit would provide a mechanism for willing Tribes, agencies, companies, or individuals to implement barred owl management on their lands.” 

Barred owls are generalist predators and opportunistic hunters, eating almost any species they encounter, including small mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, earthworms, snails, slugs, insects, and crayfish. They have invaded western forests from their historical range in eastern North America, threatening the long-term survival of spotted owls and impacting a variety of native wildlife species that either prey for or compete with barred owls for the same food resources. 

“As for Barred owls, although native to the US, they do not historically reside on the west coast..Barred Owls will either hybridize with, kill and eat, or drive Spotted Owls out of their territories,” said Hockensmith.

The draft Barred Owl Management Strategy recommends actions to reduce barred owl populations in certain areas of the northern spotted owl’s range and focuses on limiting barred owl expansion into the range of the California spotted owl. Widespread implementation of barred owl management is necessary for the conservation of spotted owls, and the Service intends to coordinate closely with Tribes, federal, state, and private partners on its implementation, which would be voluntary.

The Service prepared the draft environmental impact statement and Barred Owl Management Strategy using information and comments received during the public scoping period and the best available science, including results from the large-scale barred owl removal experiment. This study showed that barred owl removal had a strong, positive effect on northern spotted owl survival, which ultimately stopped population declines in areas where barred owls were removed.

A 60-day public comment period will start when the notice of availability publishes in the Federal Register later this month.  Information on how to submit comments is available at by searching under docket number FWS-R1-ES-2022-0074.

The Service will host two informational virtual public meetings during the comment period on the following days:
— Dec. 4 from 6-8 p.m. Pacific Time. This meeting will focus on the barred owl management within the northern spotted owl’s range.
— Dec. 14 from 6-8 p.m. Pacific Time. This meeting will focus on management within the range of California spotted owls.

A link and access instructions to the virtual meetings will be posted at at least one week before the public meeting date.
