Bleich, Joe C.jpg

Where do we begin our thinking of the latest horror in our country?
Collectively, I believe, all of us were shocked in hearing the news of the bombing in Boston this past week, on Patriots Day in Boston, during the running of the Boston Marathon. Although the carnage did not replicate the loss of life during 9/11, the impact was still one that riled us all.
All of us can feel the meaning of the history of the city of Boston.

There is no way around it — markets generally move in cycles.
Although the past is no guarantee of the future, historically, the stock market has spent more time on bullish advances than on bearish retreats — which is why stocks have been considered a good investment over the years. The market also tends to retrench more than the average investor would like to think about.

Is teacher too tardy for Roth IRA?

in
Moore, Byron.jpg

Question: Would it make sense for me to start putting about $400 a month into a Roth IRA? I am 47 and am a school teacher. Am I too old to really build up money in this?
Answer: You’ve got plenty of time to make a difference in your financial future. But you’ve got no time to waste.
The tax code allows individuals who qualify to contribute up to $5,500 in 2013 into a Roth IRA (as long as it comes from income earned by you or your spouse). If you are 50 or older, you can put another $1,000 on top as a “catch up” contribution.

Tech to host WAC softball tourney

Six schools to compete in early May championship event

Louisiana Tech has been a part of the Western Athletic Conference for 12 years, but in the fall of 2013 it will establish itself in Conference USA. And just in time, the Lady Techsters softball team has been given the honor to host its last go at the WAC tournament title.
The venue of the tourney changes each year, but it has always skipped over Tech due to inadequacies in the requirements needed to host such an event.
