HU Men`s Soccer With Preseason Trip

By Pam Sherman
Thursday, August 27th, 2015

With their first game just a day away, the Huntington men`s soccer team is anxious for the season to get underway. The excitement stems from a preseason trip to Panama City (Fla.) that focused on three goals - to serve, to build team unity and to train for soccer.

`The week was a success in building team chemistry and exposing our guys to a foundation of servant leadership,` said head coach Russ Lawson. `Everyone is extremely excited about the season because there`s a changed vibe among players and staff as a result of the trip.`

The team worked closely with First United Methodist Church of Panama City and HU soccer alums, Matthew Gerlach (`07) and Samantha Barclay (`13), both of whom work at the church. 

Each day started with the team spending several hours conditioning and training. Their attention turned to service in the afternoons where they ran a two-day soccer clinic at the local Boys and Girls Club and tackled several manual labor projects at the church and The Ark, a United Methodist-owned retreat center and halfway house. The players also had an opportunity to help with the church`s children ministry and Celebrate Recovery programs in addition to showcasing their grilling skills at the church`s annual picnic.

Evenings were devoted to team building spearheaded by seven players identified as the team`s leadership core. Activities ranged from blind dodgeball to a talent show to several leaders sharing their personal testimony.

`I`m pleased at how our leadership core has taken ownership for setting the tone for the season,` said Lawson. `Our leaders are our hardest workers, they were out front on the service projects and more times than not they were the ones putting an arm around a teammate to encourage him.`

The Foresters` season opener is Tuesday at the University of St. Francis (IL).





HU Alum Lauren Johnson Comes Up Short

By Pam Sherman
Sunday, August 23rd, 2015

 Huntington University alum Lauren Johnson (`09) was just eight tenths of a second away from qualifying for the 1500 meter finals of the World Championships. The Andrews (Ind.) native ran a 4:10.01 to finish eighth in her heat in Sunday morning`s semifinal action of the 1500 meters.

The top five finishers in both heats as well as the next two fastest times move on to the finals. Despite running five seconds faster than the top finisher in heat one; Johnson was edged out by Poland`s Angelika Cichocka who posted a 4:09.19 in Johnson`s heat to claim the final spot.

Johnson clocked in at 4:05.79 in the prelims on Friday to qualify for the semi-finals. She finished seventh in her heat but posted the 11th fastest time out of the 24 runners to secure a time-qualifying spot for the semis.

This marks Johnson`s first of hopefully several trips to the World Championships. Teammates Jennifer Simpson and Shannon Rowbury will represent Team USA later this week in the 1500 meter finals.



World Championship Days Away for HU Alum

By Pam Sherman
Thursday, August 20th, 2015

With the World Championships just days away, HU alum Lauren Johnson (`09) is eager to sport red, white and blue for the first time in her running career. On July 18 she officially punched her ticket to the Worlds by running a personal-best 4:04.17 in Huesden, Belgium to secure one of four American spots in the 1500 meters.

`Representing Team USA has been a goal of mine since I started focusing on running,` said Johnson. `The World Championships is the highest level of international competition in track and field and I`m really excited to have reached this level and have the opportunity to compete.`

After being plagued by injury for several years, this past year has been a breakout year for Johnson. `My training has been consistent this year. I still had an interruption due to injury but I`ve been healthy and training well since February. I think I`ve also got enough training in me now that I`m finally able to do the workouts I need to be doing in order to be competitive.`

Johnson headed to Narita, Japan, on August 10 where she has trained for the last week. She leaves for Beijing tomorrow and between now and then, the 28-year-old won`t be doing much more training in order to be fully rested for the prelims slated for Saturday, August 22 at 11:15 a.m. (ET).

The rest of the schedule for the 1500 meters includes the semifinals on August 23 at 8:45 p.m. (ET) followed by the finals on August 25 at 8:35 p.m. (ET). NBC has the broadcast rights with coverage beginning on Saturday at 3 p.m. Powered by YouTube, live coverage and daily highlights will also be available through IAAF Live Stream.

HU Womens Soccer Season to Open 8-26

By Pam Sherman
Thursday, August 20th, 2015

The season starts the same for the HU women`s soccer team since head coach Chris Tillett took over the program in 2013. The Foresters spend their first few days off campus with a focus on serving others and each other.

Coach Tillett`s purpose in starting the season this way is two-fold, `First, it is to be the hands of Christ for those in need. Secondly, it is to bring our team closer together to start our season in a way that highlights what our program is about and the servant leadership lessons that come from it.`

This year the team traveled to the Indianapolis area for a long weekend where they collaborated with Emmanuel United Methodist Church in Noblesville as well as organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Christmas in Action and SERVE Noblesville. The first three days included service projects ranging from physical labor to staffing a parents`night out for special needs children to spending time with a group of senior citizens called `The Happy Gleaners.`

The weekend was also littered with opportunities for players to share their faith. In addition to enjoying team devotions together, a highlight came when several seniors had the opportunity to share their testimony and lessons learned from summer travels with the people they were serving.

The Foresters also squeezed in time to hone their soccer skills. Twice they found some green space in downtown Indy between monuments to work out as a team in preparation for Saturday`s scrimmage against Calumet College of Saint Joseph where the Foresters came away with a 2-0 win over the Crimson Wave.

If the weekend is any indicator of things to come, the Foresters have plenty to look forward to according to Coach Tillett.

`We are very excited for the upcoming season.  We have a great mix of veteran leadership who selflessly serve the team and their teammates while also setting a high bar for effort and excellence and wonderful youth who are excited for a chance to play college soccer. 

`One of our biggest challenges will be the mindset switch of expecting to win versus hoping to win. On the field will be a mix of returners and new players and the opportunity to play to a deep bench. The sky`s the limit for this group!`

The Foresters open up the season at King Stadium on Wednesday, August 26 when they host Rochester College (Mich.) at 5:00 p.m.



HU Alum Heading to World Championships

By Pam Sherman
Tuesday, July 28th, 2015

Huntington University alum Lauren (Davenport) Johnson will represent the United States in the 1500 meters at the IAAF World Championships set for August 22-30 in Beijing.

The 28-year-old clinched her spot on Team USA earlier this month when she clocked in at 4:04.17 to finish second at the KBC Night of Athletics in Heusden-Zolder, Belgium. She had provisionally qualified in last month`s USATF Outdoor Championships by finishing fourth at Hayward Field in Eugene (Ore.) but still needed to hit the minimum qualifying standard of 4:06.5.

Johnson shattered her previous personal best by more than three seconds in Belgium to secure one of the four American spots for the race. She will join Jenny Simpson, brand-new American record holder Shannon Rowbury and Kerri Gallagher on the US women`s 1500 meter team headed to China next month.

Johnson graduated from Huntington University in 2009 as one of the Foresters` most decorated athletes. She is among HU`s elite having earned NAIA All-America honors in three different sports.

OTD Program Awarded $100,000 Grant

By Pam Sherman
Sunday, August 23rd, 2015

Huntington University`s doctoral program in occupational therapy (OTD) has been awarded a $100,000 grant from the English, Bonter, Mitchell Foundation over a period of four years.

`We`re thankful that the English, Bonter, Mitchell Foundation has come alongside us to support our investment in doctoral level education and in the Fort Wayne and northeast Indiana community,` said Dr. Ann McPherren, vice president for strategy & graduate/adult programs and professor of business and economics. `Our first class of graduates in 2017 will be better prepared to serve others because of the Foundation`s generosity.`

Dr. Beth Bright, occupational therapy program fieldwork coordinator, was instrumental during the grant process.

`We wanted a grant that would not only benefit current and future students, but local practitioners,` Bright said. `We`re very grateful for English, Bonter, Mitchell Foundation. It will not only affect OT student education, but future research projects conducted by students, faculty and local researchers. We really hope to give back and further the medical field through the use of the equipment purchased with the English, Bonter, Mitchell Foundation grant.`

The grant provides general support funds for the OTD program in Fort Wayne. Over the next four years, Bright and the OTD faculty will purchase additional educational equipment and technology for the 96 OTD students and 10 full- and part-time occupational therapy faculty.

`Our program is built on a foundation of laboratory and research activities,` said Dr. Ruth Ford, director of occupational therapy. `The grant helps support our focus areas in pediatrics, adaptive activities and fall prevention.`

The English, Bonter, Mitchell Foundation is a charitable trust dedicated to providing financial support for not-for-profit organizations in the greater Fort Wayne area. It was established in 1972 as a tribute to Dr. Calvin English – the first medical director of the Lincoln National Life Insurance Company. A Fort Wayne native, Dr. English was instrumental in the formation and success of Lincoln Life. His wife, sister-in-law and daughter established the Foundation to honor Dr. English and to continue his legacy of community enrichment for the city he loved.

The Foundation has awarded more than $5 million to charitable organizations in the last year. Its criteria in selecting recipients mandates that organizations must be operated for public purposes and qualify for not-for-profit status.

Huntington University`s doctoral program in occupational therapy promotes students` development in faith, health, leadership skills, advanced practice, research and professional service. Students complete clinical experiences in Indiana, across the country and internationally. The program was granted candidacy status by the American Occupational Therapy Association in April 2014 and launched in August 2014 with the first full class of 32 students and will welcome an additional class of 32 in fall 2015.

IVY Tech to Offer More in Special Needs

By Pam Sherman
Thursday, August 20th, 2015

Beginning fall 2015 semester, Ivy Tech Community College will offer a new concentration in the Education program: Special Education.

 

The addition of the Special Education concentration will allow students to be better prepared to meet the needs of today`s diverse learners. Like most states, Indiana has seen a significant increase in the number of children with special needs. The state also follows the national trend of including students with disabilities in the general classroom as much as possible.

Indiana is currently experiencing a significant shortage of teachers, especially in special education. The better trained teachers are in individualized instruction such as special education, the more likely those teachers are to find success in the schools.

 

`Our Education program began in 2006, and we have had frequent requests from students and area K-12 schools for a special ed degree,` says Laurie Johnson, the College`s statewide chair for the Education program and Ivy Tech Northeast`s Education program chair. `In K-12 education as a whole, special education is in the most demand in all 50 states, followed by mathematics and science.`

 

Earning an associate degree in Special Education will provide the training and field experience necessary to work with the K-12 special needs population. It is a 60-credit, four-semester degree that will transfer to many four-year universities in the state, including Western Governors University.

The grand opening event of the Townsend Institute for Leadership and Counseling will take place on August 29 at Huntington University and the response to the event has been positive.

`We have seen a lot of community and business leaders register and some are bringing their teams,` said Scott Makin, director of the Townsend Institute. `These individuals realize what a bargain it is to be a part of a world-class training event that is free. With New York Times best-selling author, Dr. John Townsend, and Institute Fellows like Dr. Gary Oliver, Dave Lindsey, Wayne Williams, Steve Arterburn, Kenneth Blanchard, Drs. John and Julie Gottman, Dr. Henry Cloud and John Ortberg, presenting at the event, this has become a formidable new leadership event for north central Indiana.`

The first of its kind, the Townsend Institute (www.townsendinstitute.com) offers degree programs based on his Competence-Plus-Character model, which is based on the content from Townsend`s 27 books, writings and teachings. The curriculum is biblically based, addresses the internal world of the leader and client, and uses the latest neuroscience research. It focuses on training the adult learner to help others grow and heal in the personal, relational, behavioral and professional aspects of life. It is designed to be practical and skill-based, allowing the student to become a practitioner who is competent both in theory and technique.

The Institute offers a Master`s in counseling, a Master`s in organizational leadership and credentials in executive coaching, counseling and organizational leadership. More than just learning the Townsend model, students in the programs will also be personally taught by Townsend. He will lead sessions that demonstrate the different modules from his character growth model. The program is offered onsite at the Huntington and Fort Wayne campuses, as well as online.

HU Alum Is `Farmer of the Day` at ISF

By Pam Sherman
Tuesday, August 18th, 2015

David Lash, a 2010 Huntington University alum, is being recognized as one of 17 `Farmers of the Day` during the Indiana State Fair. His day is Friday, Aug. 14.

This year`s fair theme is the `Year of the Farmer.` Each day of the 17-day fair highlights a different farmer or farm family who represents an element of Indiana agriculture. The purpose is to honor and celebrate those who have committed their lives to innovation in agriculture.

Lash is representing corn and soybean at the fair. He is self-employed with Lash Farms, Inc., in Mentone, Indiana, where he operates a 400 sow Farrow-to-Finish hog operation in addition to farming.

`I`m honored to be given the opportunity to represent part of Indiana agriculture,` Lash said. `At the state fair, I look forward to positive interactions with non-ag individuals, highlighting that most farms are family businesses working hard to provide safe and healthy ag products.` 

The 17 farmers, who were selected in collaboration with Indiana agriculture stakeholders, will be featured on daily highlight sheets for the fair, as well as participate in various events and exhibits all around the fair.  

`The highlight of the day is being interviewed in the Glass Barn about my operation and farming in general with the opportunity for anyone in attendance to ask questions,` Lash said. `I also will meet with the fair board first thing in the morning, eat lunch at the Pioneer Village and ride in the evening parade, along with interacting with fairgoers throughout the day at the Dow AgroSciences booth and around the grounds.`

Lash graduated from Huntington University in 2010 with a degree in business management. He played on the basketball team and was a member of Alpha Chi Honor Society. He chose to go into agriculture for the opportunity to work with his family and raise his children on the farm while managing an innovative business in the growing industry.

`We work to be good stewards of the land God has entrusted us to farm,` Lash said. `We do this by utilizing practices including no-till, cover crops and variable rate fertilizing.  These match our objective to obtain maximum economic yields. With the currently limited number of schools offering four year ag degrees in Indiana, I am excited for Huntington University to offer an ag program. For myself, earning a degree from HU`s business management program has been helpful in managing our operation, but I feel the additional ag focus in studies will provide even greater benefits for students going into the agriculture industry.` 

To see the entire selection list, visit http://newsroom.dowagro.com/press-release/17-featured-farmers-announced-indiana-state-fair-year-farmer.%20.
The Haupert Institute for Agricultural Studies at Huntington University promotes a Christian perspective on agriculture, which recognizes a responsibility to be good stewards of God`s creation and to examine questions of sustainability and justice. 

The program is intended to meet the growing need for agribusiness professionals and is anticipated to include concentrations in business innovation and entrepreneurship, communication and public policy, crop production, agricultural education, and ministry and missions.

Should You Be a "Hands-on" Investor?

By Lamont Neal
Sunday, July 20th, 2014

If you want to send your children or grandchildren to college, retire comfortably and achieve other important life goals, you will have to invest — it’s that simple. But the process of investing can sometimes seem anything but simple. What can you do to gain confidence that you are making the right investment moves?
The answer may depend on how involved you want to be with your investment decisions. Initially, you might think that you would like to be totally “hands on.” After all, how you save and invest your money is unquestionably a highly personal matter. And once you start exploring the investment world, you may find it fascinating, as it entails virtually every human endeavor imaginable: business, politics, science, the environment, and so on. But if you want to completely run your own show, you will need to put in a lot of work — such as studying the financial markets, staying up-to-date on changing investment environments and monitoring your portfolio to make sure it is still appropriate for your financial needs and goals.
Most people find that they do not have the time or expertise to manage this investment process on their own, which is why they turn to professional financial advisors. The key advantage in working with an advisor is that he or she knows your risk tolerance, goals and family situation, and can help you create a personalized, long-term investment strategy. A good financial advisor will communicate with you regularly and make recommendations. A financial advisor can offer you a variety of strategies and types of investments — such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds — to help you work toward your goals. Ultimately, though, you will be the one to make the “buy” or “sell” decisions.
Some investors prefer to leave even the buy-and-sell decisions to professionals. Most financial advisors offer advisory programs that take care of this for you. With these programs, you choose a professionally managed portfolio of investments. The programs typically offer a wide range of portfolios, so you can choose one that`s appropriate based on your needs, goals and risk tolerance. Each portfolio contains a broad range of investments that are selected by professional analysts and represent a variety of asset classes. Advisory programs also offer a sophisticated rebalancing process designed to keep your assets allocated appropriately, which can help keep you on track toward your specific financial goals.
Whether you choose to make your own decisions in consultation with a financial advisor or to invest in an advisory program — or both — you really should learn as much as possible about your investments. Whichever method you decide is best for you, remember that investing involves risk, and investment performance is never guaranteed. So make sure you’re asking the right questions, such as: What are the risk characteristics? How has a particular investment vehicle performed relative to others in its category? What are the tax implications of owning and selling a specific investment vehicle? What are the costs and fees associated with each choice?
            As you may have heard many times, knowledge is power — and that’s certainly true in the investment arena.

Women Must Know What to Expect

By Lamont Neal
Sunday, July 6th, 2014

Everyone needs to be aware of the financial resources they will have available in retirement. But if you’re a woman, you must be particularly diligent, for a variety of reasons. And that means you’ll need to know just what to expect from Social Security.
            Why should you, as a woman, pay extra attention to Social Security? For one thing, women often take time off from their careers to care for children and older parents, so they may accumulate less money in employer-sponsored retirement accounts, such as 401(k) plans. And women still live several years longer than men, according to the Census Bureau.
Clearly, then, you need to get the most you can from Social Security. To do so, you will need to consider at least three key factors:
            • Age — You can start taking retirement benefits as early as 62, but your benefits may be reduced by up to 30% unless you wait until your “full retirement age,” which is likely 66 or 67. If you delay taking benefits until 70, your monthly benefits may be up to a third larger than if you started collecting Social Security at your full retirement age. You’ll need to weigh a variety of factors — such as family longevity, income from employer-sponsored retirement plans and your anticipated financial needs — in determining when you should start taking Social Security.
• Employment — If you work while receiving Social Security benefits before you reach full retirement age, your benefits will be reduced by $1 for every $2 you earn over an annual limit, which generally increases each year. In the year you reach full retirement age, your benefits will be reduced by $1 for every $3 you earn over the limit before your birthday. But once you reach full retirement age, your benefits will no longer be adjusted for earned income.
• Marital status — As a spouse, you can generally receive Social Security payments based on your own earnings record or collect a spousal benefit of up to 50% of your husband`s Social Security benefit. The benefit will be reduced if you start taking it before your full retirement age. To start collecting Social Security spousal benefits, you must be at least 62 years old and your husband must also have filed for his own benefits. If you’re divorced, and you’re not currently married, you can generally receive benefits on your ex-husband’s Social Security record, as long as you meet certain conditions. (For example, you had to have been married to your ex-husband for at least 10 years.)
            No matter how much Social Security you ultimately receive, it’s almost certainly not going to be enough to provide all the income you’ll need. So during your working years, try to contribute as much as you can, for as long as you can, to your IRA and your 401(k) or other employer-sponsored retirement plan. At the same time, look for other investment opportunities. And when you reach retirement, create a withdrawal strategy that allows you to stretch out the income you receive from your investments for as long as you can. 
            By saving and investing as much as possible during your working years, maximizing your Social Security payments and carefully managing your financial assets when you’re retired, you can help improve your chances of enjoying the retirement lifestyle you deserve. 
 
This information is believed to be reliable, but investors should rely on information from the Social Security Administration before making a decision on when to take Social Security benefits. It is general information and not meant to cover all scenarios. Your situation may be different, so be sure to discuss this with the Social Security Administration prior to taking benefits.

Could You Afford to Live to 100?

By Lamont Neal
Sunday, June 22nd, 2014

Here’s an interesting statistic: Over the past three decades, the centenarian population in the United States has grown about 66%, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Of course, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you have a good chance of living to 100 — but the possibility may not be as remote as it once was. In any case, if you do plan to retire in your mid-60s, and you are in good health, you may well have two, or even three, decades ahead of you. To enjoy this time to the fullest — and to help prevent the possibility of outliving your financial resources — you will need to invest for income and growth throughout your retirement years.
            As a retiree, how much income do you need from your investments? There’s no one “right”
percentage for everyone. Furthermore, you shouldn’t have to rely solely on your investment portfolio, because you may have other sources — such as Social Security and potentially your employer-sponsored retirement plan — from which to draw income. Nonetheless, your investments can play a big role in providing you with the income you’ll need during retirement.
             Many retirees depend on fixed-rate investments for a good portion of their retirement income — so it’s a real challenge when interest rates are low, as they have been for the past several years. Consequently, when you retire, you’ll certainly need to be aware of the interest-rate environment and the income you can expect from these investments. Longer-term fixed-rate vehicles may be tempting, as they typically offer higher rates than shorter-term ones, but these longer-term investments may have more price fluctuation and inflation risk than shorter-term investments. Ultimately, you’ll likely need a balance between short-, intermediate- and long-term fixed-income investments to provide for a portion of your income in retirement.
            While it’s important to invest for income, you can’t ignore the need for growth — because you won’t want to lose purchasing power to inflation. As you know, we’ve experienced quite mild inflation recently. But over time, even a low rate of inflation can seriously erode your purchasing power. To illustrate: If your current monthly costs are $3,000, they will be about $4,000 in 10 years with only a 3% annual inflation rate. And in 25 years at that same rate, your monthly costs will have more than doubled, to about $6,200. To help protect yourself against inflation risk, you should consider having at least some investments that offer growth potential, rather than only owning fixed-income vehicles. And some investment vehicles, such as dividend-paying stocks, can offer both growth potential and current income. In fact, some stocks have paid, and even increased, their dividends for many years in a row, giving you not just income, but rising income. (Keep in mind, though, that companies are not obligated to pay dividends, and can reduce or discontinue them at any time.)
            To determine the right mix of growth and income vehicles for your individual needs, consult with a financial advisor who is familiar with your retirement plans, your risk tolerance and your family situation. And it may well be a good idea to plan for a very long retirement. You may not live to be 100 — but it would be a good feeling to know that you could afford to do so.

Watch for Risk of Muni

By Lamont Neal
Friday, June 6th, 2014

Are you thinking of investing in municipal bonds? If so, you may have good reason, particularly if you are in one of the higher tax brackets. After all, municipal bond interest payments typically are exempt from federal income taxes, and possibly state and local income taxes, too — although some “munis” are subject to the alternative minimum tax. However, since not all municipal bonds are the same, you’ll want to know the differences — especially in terms of risk.
            Municipal bonds, like corporate bonds, essentially face two types of risk: interest rate risk and default risk. Interest rate risk becomes clear when market interest rates rise, causing the value of your existing municipal bonds to fall. No one will pay you full price for your bonds when newly issued bonds carry a higher rate — so if you plan on selling bonds before they mature, you risk losing principal. You can largely ignore this type of risk simply by holding your bonds until maturity, at which point you will receive the face value back, provided the issuer doesn’t default.
            And that brings us to the second type of risk: default risk. Historically, municipal bond default rates have been much lower than those of corporate bonds, particularly lower-quality bonds. But different types of municipal bonds carry different levels of default risk. Here’s a quick look at the two main categories of municipals and their risk characteristics:
                • General obligation bonds — General obligation bonds generally finance projects of a municipality. A general obligation bond issuer is required to do everything in its power, including raising new taxes, to ensure that interest payments are paid on time and in full. This requirement helps support the creditworthiness of general obligation bonds.
• Revenue bonds — Revenue bonds, which finance schools, hospitals, utilities, airports, affordable housing and other public works, are paid by dedicated streams of revenue. For example, revenues generated by the sewer system pay the interest on a sewer system revenue bond. Because revenue bonds have more restricted revenue streams than general obligation bonds, they are generally viewed to be riskier. To compensate for the added risk, revenue bonds usually pay a higher rate of interest than general obligation bonds.
When studying the risk factors of revenue bonds, you also have to consider the type of revenue bond involved. For example, some sectors, such as housing and health care, may be more volatile, as are some industrial revenue bonds. (These bonds, which are generally used to support a specific project, such as a new manufacturing facility, are sponsored by a government entity — but the proceeds go to a private, for-profit business.)
Of course, when evaluating the risk potential of municipal bonds, you don’t have to rely on guesswork. The major bond rating agencies — Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s and Fitch — review municipal bonds to determine their creditworthiness. There are no guarantees, but by sticking with the bonds that are “investment grade,” you can help reduce the risk of owning a bond that goes into default.
Municipal bonds can be valuable additions to your portfolio. Besides providing income that’s free of federal taxes, these bonds offer you a chance to help support valuable projects in your community. But, as we’ve seen, different “munis” have different risk factors — so make sure you know exactly what type of bond you’re purchasing before you write the check.

Free Yourself from Emotional Investing

By Lamont Neal
Friday, May 23rd, 2014

            In many areas of your life, you’re probably aware that it’s useful to keep emotions out of your decision-making — and that’s certainly the case with investing. However, it can be difficult to keep your feelings from influencing your investment decisions. But you may find it easier to invest with your head, rather than your heart, if you know a little something about two different cycles: the market cycle and your emotional cycle. 
            Let’s start with the market cycle. If you’ve been investing for a while, you’re aware (probably highly aware) that the financial markets are rarely static — they are always moving up and down, at least in the short term. (Over the very long term, a period of many decades, the markets have trended up.) But these short-term movements, while perhaps appearing as “zigs” and “zags” on a daily basis, actually form a pattern, or a cycle, that can last for months or years. These cycles are known as bull (up) or bear (down) markets. Going back to the Great Depression, the average bear market has lasted 21 months, while the average bull market has extended for 57 months, according to research from Standard and Poor’s Index Services.
            These market cycles greatly influence investors’ attitudes and behavior. In fact, they lead to the formation of investors’ emotional cycles. During bull markets, investors tend to feel optimism, excitement and even euphoria. But once a bull market ends and a bear market begins, investors start getting nervous. And the longer and deeper the bear market, the greater the depth of emotion felt by investors. These emotions can begin as anxiety and then progress to denial, fear, desperation and panic.
            Furthermore, market cycles and emotional cycles don’t really align. For example, investors may well experience euphoria when the market has reached its high point and a bear market has just begun. For a while, then, these investors, fueled by their euphoric feelings over the big gains they’ve achieved, may continue pouring money into the market, even as it’s declining. This type of behavior, though, is probably better suited for when the market is already at a low, when investors’ dollars will buy more shares. Conversely, investors may reach the peak of their fearfulness at the end of a bear market, just when things are about to turn around. At this point, their fear may hold them back from investing — even though, with prices low, it can be a good time to invest. Clearly, basing investment decisions on emotions can lead to poor choices.
            So don’t get caught up in this pattern. Instead, strive to follow a disciplined approach to investing. Build an investment portfolio that reflects your objectives, risk tolerance and time horizon, and seek to hold appropriate investments for the long term. Of course, you may well need to make adjustments along the way, but do it for the right reasons — such as a change in your goals or in the investments themselves — rather than as a reaction to the current market cycle.
            Our emotions are powerful, and their power can increase when applied to such a meaningful aspect of our life as our finances. But if you can detach yourself, as much as possible, from the emotional cycle of investing, you can avoid considerable angst — while helping clear the path to pursue your goals.

I know that I have NEVER posted any such things.  The articles that I post are articles that are sent to me via email from businesses, schools and funeral homes.  At the current time, that is all that I have been posting.  However, it is possible to be hacked.  I have scrolled through the site and I personally have found nothing like this on the newsfeed.  If you have seen it or can pinpoint exactly where it is, will you please message me.  Thank you very much.  This is a very serious matter.  If I have in fact had someone hack into this administrator account, I need to have this taken care of immediately.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter!

UPDATE:

I received several screenshots of the post on the Huntington Buy It site.  The post was originated by a very uninformed person.  She was claiming that the jail bookings posted on Dec. 2, 2014 show every inmates social security number.  All sorts of threats insued.  However, anyone can read thru those jail booking posts and clearly see that nobody has a ss# present.  There is however an arrest log number.  It is in no way the same thing as a social security number.  No cause for alarm folks.





Snyder Calls on Pence

By Lamont Neal
Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

Gary Snyder, Huntington County Community School Board District 2 candidate, is calling for Governor Mike Pence to reconsider his decision not to apply for up to $80 million in federal funding to expand access to early education for low-income Hoosier families, including children in Huntington.  Snyder is also challenging his opponents to join him in this request.
 
“I would call on Governor Pence to reconsider his decision not to apply for up to $80 million in federal funding for early childhood education and I would challenge my opponents to join me in this request,” Snyder said.  “My concern is that by not pursuing these funds, low-income families in the Huntington County Community School Corporation, and across the state, will not have access to high-level pre-K programs,” Snyder added.

Income and wealth gap

By Lamont Neal
Monday, September 8th, 2014

Editor,

We have heard a lot recently about the income and wealth gap.  Why should we be concerned? 
For one thing, as the Standard & Poor’s recent analysis points out, the inequality has slowed the 5 year recovery from the recession.
Also we pride ourselves on being the land of opportunity.  Capitalism has its strengths, but anyone who is familiar with the game Monopoly knows that if the game starts with one person owning all the properties, the game is over before it started. According to Oxfam, 1% of the world’s population controls $110 Trillion, 65 times the total wealth of the poorest half of the world`s population (3.5 billion people).
The estate tax has historically provided a counter weight to this tendency to concentrate the wealth in a few individuals, but we have politicians today who have eviscerated that tax and would do away with it, calling it a “death tax”.
A number of millionaires and billionaires recently signed a petition asking congress not to repeal the estate tax.  They recognized that they would not have been able to acquire the wealth they did without the infrastructure and amenities developed by the common efforts of those who went before.  They understood that it is only fair to pass it on to the society that treated them so well.
President Obama, in an attempt to deal with the income gap, has called for a national minimum wage of $10.10 an hour.  The recent call from fast food workers for $15.00 is closer to what is needed.  The 13 states that raised their minimum wage at the start of this year have added jobs at a faster pace than those that did not.  Raising wages improves employee’s morale, productivity and customer service.  When families have more money in their pockets they pump it back into their local economies.  If you work hard and play by the rules you shouldn’t have to raise your family in poverty.
Are your legislators voting for a higher minimum wage, a fair estate tax and doing away with loopholes that let wealthy CEO’s pay taxes at a lower rate than their underpaid employees?
If not, maybe it is time to elect someone who will represent all Americans, not just the 1% that pay for their campaigns.
