  • Fall Is Coming

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Sep 21, 2022

    As much as I hate to see summer go, I cannot prevent fall from arriving. I hate seeing fall because we all know what follows, usually much too quickly. I'm giving in to reality, though, and starting on my regular fall clean-up-the-garden chores. I have all my houseplants that spent these past months outdoors gathered together on the front deck. If a frost threatens (and we've lucked out so far and not had one, although we did drop to 35° a couple weeks ago) I can easily get them covered....

  • Bet. Check. Fold?

    Richard Noble, For the Courier|Sep 21, 2022

    Some of us, the lucky ones arguably, are old enough to remember when ending a phone call on our mobile device was facilitated with a satisfying snap. It’s just not the same, thumbing the red “end call” button on the delicate pieces of glass we carry around now. Instead of fidget spinners, we had fidget phones. The great thing is however, they’re making a comeback! So long as you’re not an Apple user, there are now options for smart, foldable, snappy closing phones which do everything we expect from our modern devices. But are they any more...

  • Failure To Plan: Is It Planning To Fail?

    Financial Advisor Arron Franzen, For the Courier|Sep 21, 2022

Consider these suggestions: • Establish and quantify your goals. Throughout your life, you’ll have short-term goals, such as an overseas vacation or a home renovation, and long-term goals, the most important of which may be a comfortable retirement. You’ll want to identify all your goals and put a “price tag” on them. Of course, it’s not alwa...
