UBS’ Barnes recognized as Top 35 Under 35

SAN ANGELO – Ryan Barnes, first vice president of wealth management for UBS in San Angelo was recognized recently as one of the company’s “Top 35 Under 35.”

Top 35 Under 35 is a UBS internal recognition based on the 35 highest producing financial advisors under age 35.

“While I am honored by this distinction, what I’m most proud of is that it recognizes my ongoing commitment to understanding what’s most important to my clients, and then creating a plan to help them pursue it,” Barnes said.

“With all the changes expected on the political and economic horizon, who you choose to work with in managing your wealth has never been more important.”

Regan County group conducting broadband survey

Last week, the Reagan County Broadband Committee and broadband provider Connected Texas initiated a survey to give residents, businesses, libraries and schools in agricultural communities a chance to share thoughts about how effectively local internet service meets their needs. The committee’s Gloria Baggett explained why she feels hearing directly from West Texans is so important to the future of Reagan County.

“As a rural community, Big Lake has long been forgotten in the upgrading of equipment of our broadband providers.

“With the increased volume of energy companies our internet has been over-extended for a good while…this analysis will help Big Lake determine the need, develop a plan, and take a documented case to our providers for updated and improved technology,” she said.

“It is critical for business purposes, even small business, to have good speed and reliability. The EDC will be conducting a series of surveys among business and residential residents. For the assessment to be successful it is important all contacted to respond to the survey requests as soon as possible.”

Baggett also shared her appreciation to the Stillwater Foundation for bringing Connected Nation to Big Lake to assess the needs and availability of broadband technology in the West Texas area.

The survey is available online at http://connectmycommunity.org/reagan-county/1.
