Thirty one year old Dustin Pole who lives in Welsh, was understandably disappointed when his name was not drawn for the first of three lottery turkey hunts on West Bay wildlife management area this past season. Third time, though, proved to be charmed as he was selected for the third and final lottery hunt, a venture that resulted in Pole bagging what is unofficially a new state non-typical record for wild turkeys.

in
Fallin, Randy.jpg

Interest rates are at historic lows. But they will rise eventually. If you invest in fixed-income vehicles, such as bonds, what might higher rates mean for you?
As is almost always the case in the investment world, there’s no simple answer.
First, it’s important to distinguish between short-term and long-term interest rates. The Federal Reserve is determined to keep short-term rates low until unemployment improves, but, in the meantime, longer-term rates may well rise.

It used to be relatively simple to plan for retirement: You’d just circle the date on the calendar when your pension was set to kick in and have your co-workers start planning your send-off party.
But that was then. These days, retirement planning is a lot more complex. The number of corporate pension plans has fallen dramatically over the past two decades — from about 92,000 single-employer defined benefit plans in 1990 to 29,000 in 2009, according to the U.S. Government Accountability Office. With the burden of paying for retirement shifting to individuals, personal savings and investments are becoming the primary source of retirement income.
