in
Conville, Bobby 2014.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.

in
Fallin, Randy 2014.jpg

If the Federal Reserve (Fed) raises short-term interest rates this year, as many financial professionals predict, what will it mean to you? As a consumer, you might experience the “ripple” effects if long-term interest rates eventually follow suit, affecting mortgages and other loans.

Moore, Byron.jpg

Question: I have been trying to save money but I am having a hard time. It doesn’t make sense for me to sell my house, my car is nearly paid for and I have cut way back on my impulsive shopping (you have no idea how bad I was!). But I am still not making much progress. Any suggestions?
Answer: Get serious.
You are working on this equation from the wrong end.

Taking time to gather together

Brewton, Cathy 12-13.jpg

My husband and I have had Golden Retriever dogs for most of our married life. In fact our first “child” was a Golden named Daisy. She, like others of her breed, was intelligent, affectionate, obedient, playful and well-mannered around all people young and old. She was a great companion to us and wonderful with our children after they were born. One thing she always loved was for me to sit with her while she ate her food every day, and I did when I had time.
I clearly remember one night when Daisy was still a puppy. She seemed hungry, but would not eat without me sitting next to her.

Irby, Marna.jpg

If all goes according to Hoyle, I should be back in my apartment when you read this and granddaughter Marnie should be back from Alabama, helping me to get settled in. You wouldn’t think that I could be so attached to four small rooms when I’ve only lived there for one year, but for me, it really is my home now.
I hear Ruston had a real big snow this past week.
