Financial Focus: The right emotions can be useful in investing

You may have heard that it’s important to take the emotions out of investing. But is this true for all emotions?. Certainly, some emotions can potentially harm your investment success. Consider fear. If the financial markets are going through a down period — which is actually a normal part of the investment landscape — you might be so afraid of sustaining losses that you sell even the investments that have good prospects and are suitable for your needs.

Letter: Historical accuracy

I would like to correct something your columnist Marie Elizabeth Shade Dow wrote in your paper on June 27, 2021. Dow wrote that “Sigrid Cronin, nee Pauls, was the first manager at the Lodge at Vail.” The first manager of the Lodge at Vail was Siegrid Faller, as Dick Hauserman wrote in his book. The Lodge at Vail opened on December 15, 1962, with Sigi in charge. I have reconfirmed this fact with Daphne Slevin, who arrived in Vail in November 1962 andworked at the Lodge when it opened.
