RES 5th Grade ALA Tech archives C.jpg

Students in the Advanced Learning Academy at Cypress Springs Elementary and Ruston Elementary schools recently completed the book “The Birchbark House” by Louise Erdich. The book is representative of authentic Native American literature and transports the reader to an island in Lake Superior, in 1847, to live a full cycle of seasons through the eyes and voice of 7 year-old Omakaya, a Native American girl. Following completion of the book, each student selected a special project to develop and present to special guests that included parents, school and district administrators, and others.

At various times, many people may feel frustrated by the performance of their investments. For example, they expect growth, and they don’t get it — or they think the value of their investment won’t fluctuate much, but it does. However, some of this frustration might be alleviated if investors were more familiar with the nature of their investment vehicles. Specifically, it’s important to keep in mind the difference between long-term and short-term investments.

When losing, stop chasing your investments

in
Moore, Byron.jpg

Question: I know the stock market is getting on up there. I can remember when my 401K got whacked on the stuff I thought was supposed to be safe several years ago. I may have been in stuff that was too aggressive. I don’t think I have the stomach for this. So I moved a bunch of it to bonds back then, and it really hasn’t come back as much as everybody else’s has. How much of my money should I move to conservative things if I have twenty more years until retirement?
Answer: One thing we know for sure — you’ve got lots of company. It’s been a crazy ride in the markets ever since 2000.

Don’t be afraid to change your asset allocation

in
Conville, Bobby.jpg

Asset allocation is a time-tested strategy that can help take the guesswork out of choosing investments for your portfolio. Instead of putting all your eggs in one basket, you spread your eggs (dollars) among a variety of baskets (stocks, bonds and cash). The baskets can be further divided within each type of investment.

Time and time again

in
Brewton, Cathy.jpg

My husband, Michael, sometimes playfully says that I run on “Cathy Time” in which he thinks I am not fully aware of the clock, of time ticking away. Oftentimes I have to rush in order to be early and on time — on the other hand — I am simply late. It is true that parts of the day feel more rushed than others. So in prayer and self-reflection, I asked God to help me see what causes the lateness. I began to pay closer attention to my routine and the flow of my daily activities. And I even asked Michael what he sees in me that makes me late.
