Awareness raises safety measures

in
Bleich, Joe C.jpg

Breast cancer, domestic violence and colon cancer. These topics may at first glance seem unrelated, yet they all deal with safety and health. There is a crying need for more safety. A first step is awareness.
Breast Cancer
On Wednesday, we begin Breast Cancer Awareness Month. When this observation first started in the mid-1980s there was not much awareness. Rather than go through a detailed history, clearly Breast Cancer Awareness Month now has a much higher degree of observation. There are many programs, associations and foundations to which contributions can be made.

Government should be held responsible

in

"Government has a responsibility to the entire nation." President Franklin Delano Roosevelt said that in 1944. I think it is time to revisit that notion.
I have spent the last week watching "The Roosevelts," on PBS, and I am drawn to the stark contrasts of these people of character with that of most of today's politicians. Theodore Roosevelt was a Republican with a deep-seated belief in altruism, national pride and the possibilities of progress. Franklin Delano Roosevelt was a Democrat who believed the same. Eleanor Roosevelt was a true liberal who helped shape the Civil Rights movement.

Help children develop healthy body images

DeGrie, Elizabeth 2014.jpg

For the past five years I’ve visited with readers once a week. I’ll be honest, sometimes it’s a struggle to find something about which to write. Not to mention, five years is a long time.
In the time I’ve worked at the Daily Leader, so far, I’ve gotten married, I’ve earned an MBA, I’ve watched my husband enter the workforce and a whole host of other life events.
Because of that, I realize that my perspective has likely changed on many things.

Different stages of financial grief

Moore, Byron.jpg

Question:  Sometimes I just get frustrated and mad about the state of my money, but it seems I rarely go any further than that.  It just seems that my financial situation shouldn’t make me frustrated all the time.  Am I weird?
 
Answer: Your frustration sounds like a part of the process many of us go through when faced with a harsh reality.

When is it time to make portfolio changes?

in
Fallin, Randy 2014.jpg

The kids are back at school and summer vacations are now just fading memories, so it must be autumn. But the seasons don’t just move on the calendar — they also change in your life. And, speaking of changes, you’ll have to make many of them as you move through the years — and that includes changes to your investment portfolio. But how will you know when it’s time to take action?

The building blocks of an investment portfolio

in
Conville, Bobby 2014.jpg

Opening a savings account with your local bank may provide an easy way to put money away for safekeeping, but the thought of doing more can be tempting. While your money will earn a small rate of interest with a savings account, you may want to consider an “investing” program that can potentially earn more from the money you put away. If investing is something that piques your interest, but you’re not quite sure where to begin, consider two of the most basic types of investments — stocks and bonds.

Scriptures help assuage FOMO

in
Asher, Jemery.jpg

There was an article on the Internet that caught my attention the other day. It was an acronym that was new to me, and I thought it might be new to you as well.
The term is FOMO. Have you ever heard of it? It stands for “Fear Of Missing Out.” The web article tells us more of its meaning: “FOMO is the experience of worrying that other people are doing more interesting things than you, have more friends than you and are just all around living a better and cooler life.”
