By Lamont Neal
Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

The Huntington Lady Eagles dropped two games over the week-end to out of state rivals CHAP Chariots (Lansing, MI) and the Cincinnati Trailblazers.  The games were part of the Huntington Eagles Invitational held at the Woodside Middle School in Fort Wayne.
 In the first contest the Eagles dropped a hard fought game to the CHAP Chariots 48-42.  After not scoring in the second quarter the found themselves down 22-10 at the half.  They trailed by 14 after 3 and then ripped off 21 points in the fourth quarter to come within six points at the final.  “This was a game we really should have won.  We didn’t play well for 3 quarters and finally got it going in the fourth quarter.  We cannot continue to dig holes and expect to come back in the fourth quarter” Coach Shultz said after the game.  The Eagles were led in points by Erin Sickafoose with 12.  Logan Christ had 11 points with 3 three’s.

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

The Crossroads League announced its 2014 Volleyball All-Conference Teams on Monday and three Foresters were among the list of honorees.

A pair of rookies topped the list for HU. Freshman middle blocker Josie Beaver paced the Foresters offensively and for her efforts received Second Team All-Conference honors. She led the team in blocks (131) and is currently leading the conference in blocks per set (1.2). The Huntington native (Huntington North HS) also accumulated a team-best 219 kills to average 2.05 kills per set. 

Joining Beaver on the Second Team was freshman Kate Cobb (Elkhart, Ind., Elkhart Central HS). The 5-6 libero quickly established herself as one of the best defensive specialists in the league. She tallied a team-high 581 digs to finish third among her Crossroads peers in digs per set (5.8). She also posted 12 serving aces and a .949 serving percentage on the year.

Rounding out the honorees was senior Brittany Rooze. A 5-9 left side hitter, Rooze finished second on the team in kills (196) in addition to collecting 72 digs and 36 blocks to earn Honorable Mention accolades. Rooze hails from West Lafayette, Ind. (Benton Central HS) and received Honorable Mention honors as a freshman. 

Huntington wrapped up the season with an overall record of 6-23.

The Huntington University Foresters compete in 16 intercollegiate sports for men and women. In the past decade, Huntington has produced 38 NAIA All-America honors and 222 All-America Scholar Athlete honors.

Moore and Wood headed to Nationals

By Lamont Neal
Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

The NAIA national office announced last week the team and individual qualifiers for the 2014 NAIA Cross Country National Championships and among the list of individual qualifiers are Huntington University juniors Hannah Moore and Krista Wood.

The HU pair is two of 84 individuals who will compete at the NAIA Women’s Cross Country National Championship on Saturday, November 22, at Rim Rock Farm in Lawrence, Kansas. Their invitation to compete at nationals is based on their finish at the Crossroads League Championships on Saturday where Moore claimed 6th and Wood finished 13th.

This will be both runners’ second trip to the NAIA Championships. As freshmen, they were part of the 2012 Crossroads League Championship Forester squad that earned an automatic bid to the tourney where the team finished 20th overall out of 32 teams. In that race, Wood ran a 20:08 to finish 122nd while Moore posted a time of 20:18 for 132nd.

Headlining the competition is two-time defending national champion No. 1-ranked British Columbia. The Thunderbirds – who are the top-ranked school for the last seven editions of the 2014 NAIA Women’s Cross Country Coaches’ Top 25 Poll – will look to grab its third-straight national crown.
The women’s 5K race will begin at 10:30 a.m. CST, followed by the men’s 8K race at 11:45 a.m. CST.

Foresters Knock Off Purdue Cal

By Lamont Neal
Monday, November 17th, 2014

In a battle between two of the top teams in the nation, the 19th-ranked Huntington women’s basketball team knocked off 10th-ranked Purdue Calumet 88-75 Saturday night at Platt Arena.  It marks the Peregrines (4-1) first loss of the season while HU improves to 4-1.

Purdue Cal entered the contest with an impressive basketball resume. As a team, the Peregrines boasted 21 top 50 national rankings and just as many individual national rankings but the Foresters never seemed fazed.

After playing to a 6-6 tie through the opening two minutes, Kelsey Hubble weaved her way down the lane for a layup, knocked down a pair free throws and drained back-to-back treys to score ten of her 14 first half points to give the Foresters a 23-15 lead by the 12:27 mark.  Miranda Palmer and Amelia Recker were equally impressive in the period.

Palmer buried a trio of threes on her way to a 17-point performance while Recker dropped in ten points to pace HU to a 45-33 lead at halftime.

The Peregrines started off the second half with a pair of quick buckets to trim the lead to eight but a timeout shortly after got the Foresters back on track with Jaclene Bonnema sparking her squad. The 6-2 junior corralled four of her six offensive boards in a two -minute span which led to five points and a 52-41 HU advantage.

Purdue Calumet would cut the lead back to eight on four different occasions but would get no closer as the Foresters scored their final 12 points from the free throw line to wrap up the upset.

Recker tied her career-best with 28 points which included going a perfect 10-for-10 from the line. She shared game-high rebounding honors with Bonnema as each finished with nine. Palmer poured in 26 points for the second straight game while Hubble added 21.

In addition to dribbling through Purdue Cal’s full court press with ease, Courtney Baker finished with eight points, all from the line, a game-best eight assists, seven boards and two steals.

Jada Buggs and Patrice McBee led the Peregrines with 26 and 20 points respectively.

While the Foresters posted a season-high 88 points, it was their defense that was the key to victory. Prior to Saturday’s game, Purdue Cal was sitting at the No. 7 spot nationally with their 89.75 points per outing but HU made sure they didn’t live up to their billing by holding them 15 points below their season average.

Purdue Cal shot 52.5 percent from the field to HU’s 46.2 percent but the difference came behind the arc where Huntington scored 21 points to the Peregrine’s three and at the line where HU outscored their visitors 33-10.

Coach Culler’s crew finished 33-for-36 from the charity stripe to jump from 5th in NAIA Division II in free throw percentage to 1st with an 84.4 percentage. To date, HU has made good on 81 of their 96 attempts this season. 
 
The Foresters have nearly a week’s break before hosting their own tournament on November 21-22. HU is slated to tip-off against the University of St. Francis (IL) at 8:00 p.m. on Friday

HU Defends HOF Tourney Title

By Lamont Neal
Monday, November 17th, 2014

The #RV HU men’s basketball team (6-1) successfully defended their Ness Bros. Hall of Fame Tournament title Saturday afternoon with a thrilling 75-68 win over Asbury University (5-1) at Platt Arena. Last year the Foresters beat IU East 102-76 in the championship game for the 2013 title.

Huntington’s longest lead of the second half was only a 43-second span but fortunately timing is everything as their lead came at the end of the contest. After playing to a 68-68 tie with 43 ticks left, Kyle Pipenger drained his second trey of the night with the shot clock winding down to give his team a 71-68 advantage.

It was picture perfect for Coach Platt’s crew after that as they held the Eagles scoreless the rest of the way while Derek Hinen calmly sank four consecutive free throws with a handful of ticks remaining to seal the win.

While no more than three possessions separated the two teams through the first twenty minutes, the half favored the visitors as Asbury’s full court pressure coupled with some sharp shooting by the guard duo of Jordan Gilbert and Kyle Lamb made for an AU advantage of 44-35 by intermission. 

The Eagles went on to pad their lead to 14 on two different occasions through the opening three minutes of the final stanza before the Foresters started methodically chipping away at the lead. Down 53-39 at the 16:52 mark, Hinen and Daniel Woll teamed up to score 15 of their team’s next 20 points over an eight-minute stretch to whittle the lead to two at 61-59 with 9:17 remaining.

HU finally took their first lead of the half, 63-62, with just over six minutes remaining on another Hinen bucket to set the stage for an exciting ending. Four ties and three lead changes later, Pipenger’s heroics finally paved the way for the Forester win.

Hinen topped all scorers with 25 points. He also hauled in eight rebounds and dished out six assists and for his efforts was named the tournament MVP.

Woll finished with 24 points and ten boards, his second double double of the weekend, to be named to the All-Tournament team. Joining him on the All-Tournament team was Pipenger who added eight points and four rebounds. Trevor Lockwood came off the bench to toss in nine points and pull down five boards.

Lamb paced Asbury with 19 points and four assists. CJ Penny added 15 points while Tyler Smith grabbed a team-high nine rebounds to go along with nine points. Lamb and Smith were both named to the All-Tourney team.

Huntington shot 48.2 percent from the field (27-for-56) while limiting the Eagles to 36.7 percent (22-for-60). Asbury committed eight turnovers to HU’s ten while the Foresters enjoyed a 42-31 rebounding advantage.

HU is back in action on Tuesday when they host Wilberforce at 7:00 p.m.

National #GivingTuesday Movement

By Lamont Neal
Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

YWCA Northeast Indiana has joined #GivingTuesday, a first of its kind effort that will harness the collective power of a unique blend of partners—charities, families, businesses and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. Coinciding with the Thanksgiving Holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday hopes to inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support and help create a better world. Taking place December 2, 2014 – the Tuesday after Thanksgiving – #GivingTuesday harnesses the power of social media to create a national movement around the holidays dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are, today, synonymous with holiday shopping.
YWCA Northeast Indiana encourages the community to take part.
“It’s easy to get caught up in the days of great deals that follow Thanksgiving,” says YWCA Northeast Indiana President/CEO Deborah Beckman. “We go from giving thanks to the hustle and bustle of shopping for this season’s must-have items. #GivingTuesday is a chance to remind ourselves and others that the season is not about getting, but giving.”
Participating in #GivingTuesday can take a lot of different forms. YWCA Northeast Indiana suggests these easy ideas:
 Forego your morning cup of coffee and give the $5 you would have spent to a worthy charity. Or, pack your lunch instead of eating out. Giving the $10 that you would have spent to YWCA instead of eating out provides a whole week of meals for an individual staying at their Crisis Shelter.
 If you’re planning on braving the stores on Black Friday, pick up an extra toy or two to donate to one of the many shelters in Fort Wayne. Items can be dropped off at YWCA’s offices at 1610 Spy Run Avenue in Fort Wayne during office hours.
 If you find yourself with unopened cans of vegetables or cranberry sauce after Thanksgiving, drop them off at the nearest food bank or shelter. YWCA can accept any unopened, in-date food items for use at their Crisis Shelter or to give to a client struggling this holiday season.
“In the comfort of our homes, we sometimes forget that there are families without a home of their own over the holidays. Our Crisis Shelter has been over capacity for months now.
#GivingTuesday provides the Northeast Indiana community the opportunity to make this holiday season brighter for a family in need,” says Beckman.
Seeing an opportunity to channel the generous spirit of the holiday season to inspire action around charitable giving, a group of friends and partners, led by the 92nd Street Y (92Y), came together to find ways to promote and celebrate the great American tradition of giving. Thought leaders in philanthropy, social media and grassroots organizing joined with 92Y to explore what is working in modern philanthropy and how to expand these innovations throughout the philanthropic sector. The concept gained steam, and with the help of the United Nations Foundation and other founding partners, more than 10,000 organizations have joined the movement and are providing creative ways people can embrace #GivingTuesday and collaborate in their giving efforts to create more meaningful results.
“It’s been a privilege to work with remarkable leaders all over the country building a movement around #GivingTuesday,” said Henry Timms, 92Y’s Executive Director. “This initiative has truly been crowd-sourced by some of the smartest and most connected minds among the next generation of philanthropists and entrepreneurs.”
“#GivingTuesday is a counter narrative to Black Friday and Cyber Monday because it reminds us that the spirit of the holiday giving season should be about community and not just consumerism,” said Kathy Calvin, CEO of the UN Foundation. “The most meaningful gift we can give our children, loved ones, friends and neighbors is the commitment to work together to help build a better world.”

Indiana 4-H enrollment is now open in Huntington County through January 15, 2015. 4-H is a premier source of enjoyable, educational programs to help young people reach their full potential. Plus, new for 2015, enrollment is easier than ever with the 4-H Online system, https://in.4honline.com.

Indiana 4-H is the state’s largest youth development program for grades 3-12, reaching over 200,000 youth in all 92 counties. 4-H Youth Development Educators in each Purdue Extension county office coordinate local activities.

In Huntington County, approved adult volunteers teach young people specific skills related to a wide variety of subjects through hands-on, experiential learning. Youth also develop leadership and citizenship skills by participating in one of 34 organized 4-H Clubs. Subjects include: science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM); agriculture; citizenship; healthy living; art; consumer and family sciences; and more. In 2013, a Tufts University study showed that 4-H members also excel in positive youth development areas compared to peers, including:

•         Four times more likely to contribute to their communities (grades 7-12)

Local Family Competes in Competition

By Lamont Neal
Monday, November 17th, 2014

A local family has been one of 25 families selected to participate in Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s Triple Play Fit Family Challenge. Though hundreds of families applied to take part in the challenge, Angela Minick and her two children, Gabbie and Eli, were selected to take part and were the only family from Indiana to be selected.  The Triple Play Fit Family Challenge is designed to help families from across the country incorporate principles from BGCA`s signature health and wellness program, Triple Play, into their lives over a period of three to six weeks. In line with the three components of the Triple Play program, families that participate in the Challenge will learn and practice healthy eating habits (MIND), be more physically active (BODY) and spend quality time with each other (SOUL). Challenge activities include participating in fitness and social activities as a family, trying new fruits and vegetables and eating smaller portions.
The Minicks have already completed some family challenges and are submitting a weekly log of their progress. So far, they have added exercise into their routine, switched from 2% to 1% milk, and focused on healthier eating habits. If they are selected as one of the top 5 families from this group, the whole family will win an all-expenses paid trip to Florida to compete in the Triple Play Fit Family Challenge Finale. If your family would like to take part in the Minick’s journey, you are welcome to participate in a “Cooking Session with the Minicks” on Wednesday, November 19th at 6:00 pm at the Boys & Girls Club. Angela will be teaching the group how to make healthy wraps that the family can make at home. Please call the Club at 260-359-1750 to reserve your spot.



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.

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.

A meeting was held on Tuesday, April 29th to educate and inform the public and affected property owners whose land falls into the proposed forced annexation areas set forth by Mayor Brooks Fetters and the Huntington City Council.

The topics included the negative effects on the city and county residents if the annexation is passed. These negative effects include higher taxes to cover the costs of added infrastructure, the loss of revenues to the School Corporation and public library, and higher utility rates.

For more information, visit the City of Huntington’s website at  www.huntington.in.us , type “Annexation” in the search area then select  City of Huntington Annexation Plan 2014-2021. In addition to this report, type “Comprehensive Plan” in the search area, select  City of Huntington 2012 Comprehensive Plan  and scroll to pages 71-85 for further aspects of the annexation plan developed back in September of 2012.

The public is encouraged to voice their opinions about the annexation plan by contacting the City Council Members who will be voting yes or no to continue with Annexation.  City Council Members include: Charles Chapman, District 1, 260.359.3469, Paul Pike, District 2, 260.358.0763, Jim Long, District 3, 260.356.4682, Wayne Powell, District 4, 260.356.4934, Joe Blomeke, District 5, 260.356.6912, Greg Davis, At Large, 260.519.2223 and Jack Slusser, At Large, 260.356.4755. Mayor Brooks Fetters may be reached at 260-356-1400 x212, as well.

A Special Meeting and Public Hearing is scheduled for June 3, 2014 at 7:00 pm in the Council Chambers located at the Huntington City Building that citizens of Huntington City and County are urged to attend and voice their opinions.

The public is also invited to attend the next meeting against the forced annexation on Tuesday, May 6th at 6:30 pm at 6864 Stults Rd (6864N – 200W).  “LIKE ” the group’s Facebook Page Huntington Annexation to follow the latest information.
