Question: My parents have asked me to oversee the estate planning process for our family. I have four siblings. Most of us have children of our own, but not all. We have always gotten along as a family, but I am afraid disagreements could arise, especially when it comes to grandchildren. Suggestions?
Answer: Most conversations I have with folks about estate planning start out with two goals: avoid taxes and treat everyone equally.
SAN DIEGO, Calif. — As gloomy as the early part of this season was for Louisiana Tech University, it’s only fitting that the football season will end in sunny San Diego.
In so far as the so-called “lower tier” of the vast bowl landscape is concerned, the San Diego Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl is located in one of the most beautiful and livable cities in the U.S.
At least that’s what I’ve read, been told and heard about.
San Diego is one of the few places in Caiifornia I haven’t been to, so I have to admit to some subtle “cheering” for that city when the list of Tech’s prospective bowl sites were circulating right after clinching an outright Western Athletic Conference title.
Does it not make you a bit jittery when somebody tells you he has good news – and bad news for you? When this happens, which do you prefer to hear first? I usually like to get the bad stuff out of the way so I can look forward to hearing something good that follows.
If you’re a duck hunter, I sort of hate to switch things around for you but it seems best to start with the good and hope the bad won’t be too much of a let down.
