Don’t become a victim of a phone scam

This past week the Ruston Police Department released an official statement warning residents about a recent report of a Medicare phone scam that targeted a Ruston resident. According to the report, the RPD received a complaint on April 9 from an individual who received several telephone calls from a person or persons claiming to be with Medicare. The callers were said to have a foreign accent and claimed to be calling to let the intended victim know that she would be receiving a new Medicare card but also asked for bank account information.

Barber: Secure borders

in

For more years than I can remember, our elected officials in Washington D.C. have discussed the need to secure our border with Mexico. All Americans that keep informed about our country’s situation know that our border protection has never reached the intended goal. There is an estimated 12 million illegal Mexicans within our Country at this moment with hundreds arriving each day.
We also hear warnings from both parties not to cut our military active forces. Large reductions in the numbers of military men and equipment will put our country at risk. I am a retired military person and I believe in keeping our defensive posture strong.

Different people, different results

in
Cox-Boniol,  Cathi.jpg

It happened again.
Before I could finish a conversation with someone in the aisles of Super 1 Foods, I got the same question I’ve been answering for over thirty years: “So what’s your favorite Elvis song?”
I always get the feeling folks are trying to stump me with this as if it’s impossible to answer. And of course, different songs are favorites for different reasons. But at the end of the day, one song nudges to the top of my list, and that’s “Suspicious Minds.” To me that song represents Elvis at the top of his game in every possible way. Recorded in 1969 by a reinvented man, it’s said to be the single that reinvigorated both Elvis and his career and then became his last No. 1 single in the United States.

The long-term effects of war

Bleich, Joe C.jpg

The Civil War; what have we learned? Today is the date that Lincoln was shot. Is there more?
Now and for the next two years we are celebrating the 150th anniversary("sesquicentennial") of the fighting and conclusion of the Civil War, the War between the States, or as some would still say — the War of Northern Aggression. Thinking about this pivotal time in our nation’s history is not just for those who love to reflect upon history. Personally I believe that we still feel and deal with some of the vestiges of the Civil War.

Try to learn from Earth Day’s lessons

in
Fallin, Randy.jpg

Next week, we observe Earth Day. First celebrated in 1970, Earth Day has grown into an international movement whose goal is to raise awareness of the need to take action to sustain a healthy, sustainable environment. You can do your part through recycling and other measures, but you can also apply some of the lessons of Earth Day to your financial situation — and, in particular, to your approach to investing.
Give these ideas some thought:

Don’t be old and afraid of running out of money

in
Moore, Byron.jpg

Question: I am in my early 70’s. This will be my last year to work. My wife and I both get Social Security checks and I have about $500,000 in IRAs, etc. We spend about $50,000 a year, not including taxes. With this market, I am very worried that I might run out of money. I do not want to take risks and I want to leave my money to my children. What do you suggest?
Answer: That’s quite a shopping list you’ve got there!
