Glen View students are off to a great start

in

Kindergarten
Kindergarteners at Glen View Elementary have had a fun and successful school beginning. We are learning how to sit in our desks, work cooperatively with others, how to work quietly by ourselves, learning how to be independent, and how to walk in an orderly line. It has also been a time of learning academically. We have learned so many new things in a short amount of time beginning with school and classroom rules, learning our names, our breakfast/lunch numbers, and identifying the letters of the alphabet and reading sight words so we will be great readers.

It probably doesn’t happen as much as you’d like, but from time to time, you have some extra disposable income. When this happens, how should you use the funds? Assuming you have adequate emergency savings — typically, three to six months’ worth of living expenses — should you pay off debts, or fund your IRA or another investment account?

Social Security from a woman’s perspective

in
Conville, Bobby 2014.jpg

Regardless of whether you’re a man or a woman, Social Security will not — and was never designed to — provide all of the income you’ll need to live comfortably during retirement. At best, your income from Social Security will supplement your other sources.
If you are factoring Social Security into your retirement plan, you should learn all you can about how to enhance your benefits, and how much income you may need from other sources, to be financially comfortable during your retirement years.
For women, however, there are some unique factors to consider in the equation.

One day in the life of Marna Irby

Irby, Marna.jpg

God is so good, He’s so good to me. I know that is the first line of a children’s chorus, but it expresses my sentiments right now.
Have you ever had such a great experience that you keep replaying it in your mind? That is what is happening with me right now. It has to do with family.
First, I have to tell you that I had not seen, nor heard from, any of my Newman relatives for years. They always lived in other states and I never saw much of them, especially after my dad died.
