Is teacher too tardy for Roth IRA?

in
Moore, Byron.jpg

Question: Would it make sense for me to start putting about $400 a month into a Roth IRA? I am 47 and am a school teacher. Am I too old to really build up money in this?
Answer: You’ve got plenty of time to make a difference in your financial future. But you’ve got no time to waste.
The tax code allows individuals who qualify to contribute up to $5,500 in 2013 into a Roth IRA (as long as it comes from income earned by you or your spouse). If you are 50 or older, you can put another $1,000 on top as a “catch up” contribution.

Six schools to compete in early May championship event

Louisiana Tech has been a part of the Western Athletic Conference for 12 years, but in the fall of 2013 it will establish itself in Conference USA. And just in time, the Lady Techsters softball team has been given the honor to host its last go at the WAC tournament title.
The venue of the tourney changes each year, but it has always skipped over Tech due to inadequacies in the requirements needed to host such an event.

Turkeys: Love-hate relationship

in
10-4.jpg

It all started 20 seasons ago for me. I was initiated into the royal order of turkey hunting and the activity has had its grip on me ever since.

Case in point — I hunted turkeys in the hill country of Texas last week and until that final hour of my four-day hunt, my frustration led to despondency. In fact, my hunting partner commented I seemed depressed.

Coming off the heels of the Big Bass Open the previous week, the North Central Louisiana Fishers of Men team trail recently returned to the waters of Lake D’Arbonne for their third tournament of the series.
Though many of the anglers that fished the Open had great success, the rains and cooler weather in the intervening week dropped lake temperatures and threatened the success of the strategies used previously.
