Question: My husband and I are considering working with a young man who is a financial advisor at our bank. He seems like a nice person and is close to our age. But my husband is worried that we will pay too much in commissions for any investments we make. I hate to put you on the spot, but is working with someone like this a good idea?
Answer: Two rather depressing pieces of journalism have crossed my desk in recent weeks.
OK, this one hits a little too close to home. A Ruston High School history class is looking for artifacts from the 1960s. Yes, you read that correctly, “artifacts,” as is an object remaining from another time or culture.
They’re looking for the things from the 1930s, too, but those really may be artifacts. After all, that’s when my grandparents were still in the “young couples” Sunday School class, Franklin Roosevelt was president and the Great Depression descended upon the land.
One of the many services the LSU AgCenter provides is farm and home visits. During the last few weeks many of the horticultural calls we have received are regarding centipedegrass lawns. After receiving the calls most home owners perhaps would feel most assured if the extension agent could come out and take a closer look. Which you might expect because, the home owner or business owner may have invested a considerable amount of money to establish a perfect lawn.
The Democratic presidential hopeful pops up more than cat videos on my Facebook timeline.
A co-worker recently asked me — since I am a proud millennial — what appeal does Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) have to young voters.
It’s simple, yet complex.
Millenials’ parents, community leaders and early 90s politicians promised a brighter future than generations before.
But in reality, Millenials received the tail end of the Internet boom, witnessed major terrorist attacks and an economic recession close in size of the Great Depression.
