Halbrook, Andy 2016.jpg

Thanksgiving is almost here.
Ideally, this day should be about more than football and the imminent arrival of Black Friday mega-sales. After all, the spirit of the holiday invites us to be grateful for what we have and for the presence of our loved ones.
But it’s important to look beyond just one day in November if you want your family to take part in your “abundance.” If you want to ensure your financial resources eventually are shared in the way you envision, you will need to follow a detailed action plan, including these steps:

Planning for an unexpected early retirement

in
Conville, Bobby 2014.jpg

Even with a solid retirement plan in place, life can include big and unexpected changes — often unanticipated.
About 46 percent of retirees left the workforce earlier than planned, according to the 2016 Retirement Confidence Survey released by the Employee Benefit Research Institute.
Corporate restructuring and downsizing are both components of this statistic, but an earlier-than-expected retirement could also happen due to a health condition or the need to care for a loved one.

In the end, it was a lack of luck combined with the pinball wizardry of Hahnville running back Anthony “Pooka” Williams in Ruston High School’s second-round Class 5A playoff game on James Field at L.J. “Hoss” Garrett Stadium Friday night.
The Bearcats failed to hit on a pair of long field goal attempts in the game’s final minute as Hahnville escaped with a 23-21 win, with Williams leading the way.

Cougars defeated by St. Mary’s in 2OT thriller

NATCHITOCHES — In a game featuring seven lead changes, it was obvious the decision wouldn’t be made until the final minutes.
And then some.
Cedar Creek pushed the contest to double overtime before St. Mary’s escaped with a 40-34 win in Division IV prep playoff action Friday night at Turpin Stadium.
The game was tied at 34-34 at the end of regulation, and both teams failed to score in the first overtime period as St. Mary’s had a snap sail back over quarterback Aaron Howell’s head and the lost yardage resulted in a missed field goal for the Tigers.
