in
Conville, Bobby 2014.jpg

Money can, after all, grow on trees — family trees. And judging by the $8.4 trillion baby boomers are expected to inherit from older generations in coming years, we’re not talking chump change. In fact, roughly two-thirds of boomer households will receive an inheritance, and the average value of those inheritances is just under $300,000.
Jim McKown, first vice president with Wells Fargo Advisors’ High Net Worth Planning team, notes that a $300,000 inheritance has the potential to grow over 30 years into nearly $3 million, assuming a 7 percent annual return.

Kenyon McNeail was a long-range legend during his Louisiana Tech University basketball career.
Now, he’s extended his talent for sinking 3-point shots from another area code to the international scene.
The former Bulldogs’ star is among the leading players in Europe.

If you’ve read my columns or heard my radio programs for a while, you’re going to read or hear something about songbirds.
