Jindal celebrates accomplishment

Gov. Bobby Jindal stopped in Ruston last week to help celebrate a $10 million investment in the local health care industry by the Gamble family. The family opened a brand-new skilled nursing facility with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Monday, and residents moved into their new home at Alpine today.
But, that investment wasn’t the only good news Jindal was highlighting that day. He told those members of the business and health care communities gathered at the celebration some great news for the state — our sons and daughters are coming home, and the future is bright.

Some people just won’t wake up. 
There are some officials, fortunately not here, who do not see the preventable and controllable plague in front of us.  One might recall how the Pharaoh in Egypt was warned of plagues, yet he kept refusing to yield or bend or learn.  Ignoring the horrific phenomenon of domestic violence is no different. This is an unpleasant topic perhaps, but so is death; so is disease; so is poverty; so is crime. Domestic violence incorporates elements of some or all of these “bad news” topics.

“Are you looking for something special?”
Tom and I were on the streets of Boston’s Little Italy earlier this month when those words wafted up toward our ears. We turned to find this elderly yet charming little Italian woman standing in front of us with her hands clasped together. No doubt there was a quizzical look on both of our faces and I quickly offered a typically Southern response: “Mam?”
Her eyes twinkled, her smile widened and she animatedly moved toward us to gleefully whisper yet again, “You look like you’re looking for something special. And I can help.”

Making a decision for living healthy

in
DeGrie, Elizabeth 2014.jpg

Before I really committed to my weight-loss journey, I would ask other people who had succeeded at weight loss how they had done it.
Did they magically no longer crave hot fudge sundaes? Did losing weight cure their desire for hamburgers, tacos or pizza?

Moore, Byron.jpg

Question: As I approach retirement, I know there is a lot I need to protect myself and my wife against. I don’t want to be Chicken Little and run around scared all the time.

Answer: Last week we started the process of looking at the most commonly identified financial risks faced by retirees.
