Get ready for the ‘what ifs’

in
Conville, Bobby.jpg

The future holds many uncertainties, and your retirement is no exception: “What age should I retire?” “How long will I live in retirement?” “When should I start taking Social Security?” “How will rising medical costs affect me?” That’s why planning is so critical, and a good plan will take into account many of the possible uncertainties. In the process of developing your personal retirement plan, it’s important to map out these “what-ifs” — the scenarios, priorities and choices that you’ll build into your strategy.

Fallin, Randy.jpg

Congress has designated the third week in October as National Save for Retirement Week — which means it’s a good time to think about your own retirement savings strategies.
Ensuring that you have enough money to support your chosen retirement lifestyle is certainly important. Unfortunately, many of your fellow Americans have apparently not done enough in the way of building retirement savings to ease their minds.
Consider these figures, taken from the Employee Benefit Research Institute’s 2013 Retirement Confidence Survey:

How change motivates action in business settings

in
Moore, Byron.jpg

Question: My husband and I run a small business. My father recently passed away and left us with some money. We are not sure whether to put the money into our business or set it aside. How should we decide?
Answer: My own pet theory of human motivation is that change is the hot poker in the backside of life that gets most of us off the dime.
For example, suppose receipts begin to fall from one month to the next in your business. If that trend continues, you’re either going to tighten your belt or start to beat the bushes for more business.

“And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” Phillippians 4:19
October! Fall is finally here! I can’t believe we are already seven weeks into our school year.
October is fire safety month, so we invited one of Ruston’s state-of-the-art fire trucks to visit our center. Emmanuel’s 1- and 2-year-olds had a tremendous time talking with the firemen and exploring some of their vital equipment.

Fall is in the air in Ms. Moron’s class this month. We are learning about the changes that will be happening in the weather at this time of year. We are also learning about how the seasons affect the types of clothes we wear and the activities that we do with our friends.
We have started our unit on graphs and are having so much fun. This month we will be continuing to work hard toward all of our reading and math goals.

Tough call figuring Ring of Honor inductees for Saints

in
Boatright, T. Scott.jpg

The New Orleans Saints recently announced they would add a Ring of Honor to the Mercedes Benz Superdome, recognizing the franchises’ top players of all times.
Officials said three players will be announced to the new Ring of Honor on Nov. 10 as the Saints face the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football in the Superdome. And while the Saints spent many seasons in futility before the greatness of their post Hurricane Katrina play, there are still plenty of candidates from the Saints’ past who are duly qualified and deserving of the honor.

RHS records second straight shutout with homecoming win

Not many people would think a 31-0 game could be called a defensive struggle.
The packed house in attendance Friday for Ruston High’s homecoming game against Natchitoches Central knows better now.
That’s exactly the way things played out on James Field at LJ “Hoss” Garrett Stadium as the Bearcats rolled their record to 5-1 and recorded their first District 2-1A win of the season and their second straight shutout.
Natchitoches Central fell to 3-3 and 0-1.
So how does a team put 31 points on the scoreboard in a defensive struggle? If you blinked, you missed it.

The Cedar Creek Cougars were too much for district rivals Grambling Lab High School on Friday night.
Head coach Ben Haddox’s Cougars defeated the Kittens 53-28 at Cedar Creek Stadium in their first district game of the 2013 season.
The Cougars came our strong, intercepting the ball in the first play and scoring a touchdown on the second play of offense.
“I was really proud the way they came out of the locker room,” Haddox said. “We built our schedule to be difficult in the beginning to help us in district. For us to get a hardfought district win shows our hard work pays off.”
