Don't confine Memorial Day to May

At age 17, I had big decisions to make. Too scared to go to college, determined not to stay at home, I enlisted in the United States Navy. Three months after graduation, I began my career as a Sailor. Six Septembers later, I was teaching a room full of new sailors how to read electronic schematics. The day took a historic turn when we received the news of the Twin Towers. As the faces of the 18 to 24 year old men and women looked to me for an explanation, I wondered how many of them joined because they had ...

Started thinking about those new bathing suits yet?

Started thinking about your new bathing suit yet? With the weather around the South, I am sure you have. In fact, I am betting a few of you already have one. This change in season is great for a local business industry. Of course, we don't really have a place with a large variety of swimsuits to choose from here in The Hill – unless Nordstrom's decides to occupy the space at the old Kroger site. Have you heard that rumor yet? Me neither, but it sounded like just as good speculation as any.

Who's looking out for you?

If you've been investing for a while, you know that there are few guarantees in the investment world and that, in one way or another, you're going to be taking some risks with your money.
