2017: A look at the good, the bad, the ugly

in
sports 1.jpg

Telling the old man, 2017 goodbye while welcoming the little cherubic 2018 guy taking his place provides the right time to look back over the past 12 months to mull over those things that went well; those that weren’t worth bragging on and those that were just flat out bummers.
I’ve had some of all three and I’m betting you did, too. Let’s get the bad out of the way first so we can gargle and spit the nasty taste out of our mouths.

Saints, Panthers saga becomes trilogy

in

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Saints coach Sean Payton takes a small measure of comfort in New Orleans’ regular-season sweep of Carolina.
It means the Saints (11-5) play the Panthers (11-5) in the Superdome, where New Orleans hasn’t lost a playoff game since 1992 and is 4-0 in the postseason under Payton.

McCallum takes judgeship unopposed

in

Third Judicial District Judge Jay McCallum is going to the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals.
McCallum drew no opposition in candidate qualifying that ended Friday for the seat left opened when Appeals Court Judge Harmon Drew of Minden announced his retirement. In Louisiana, running unopposed is tantamount to election.
“I’m just really gratified and overwhelmed by the show of support and encouragement we had,” McCallum, of Farmerville, said Friday night.
McCallum said he would continue his district duties until he’s notified when his appellate judgeship begins.

Aldermen to consider downtown attractions

in

Ruston’s Board of Aldermen could take the first steps toward adding two more downtown attractions if aldermen endorse a pair of items on their Monday night agenda.
The board convenes at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall in a meeting that’s open to the public.
Up for discussion is a new cooperative endeavor agreement with MTJ Smith Properties, which, if approved, would begin the transformation of a vacant site on East Park Avenue into an outdoor venue for monthly public cultural events.
The site is between Sundown Tavern and the adjacent Park Avenue Apartments.

in
Moore, Byron 2016.jpg

Question: I cut your articles out and send them to my children all the time. But it seems like they just don’t get it. What can I do to help my adult children not repeat the same financial mistakes I made at their age?
Answer: Not a thing.
There is no way to guarantee your kids won’t repeat your mistakes. In fact, most of the time, that’s exactly what happens.

in
Conville, Bobby 2014.jpg

Asset allocation is to investment planning what the foundation is to a house or the chassis is to a car.
It’s what everything else is built upon. And just as important as constructing a house on a firm foundation, having the right asset allocation can be vital to helping you work toward your financial goals.
Although the name may sound intimidating, asset allocation is just a technical term for a rather simple concept.
Asset allocation is merely how your portfolio is divided up among different types of investments, such as stocks, bonds, and what are called “cash alternatives.”
