Tuesday, October 28th, 2014

For the second consecutive tournament, the Forester women’s bowling team finished in the top three by claiming 3rd out of 21 teams at the Tier II Boilermaker Classic at Mike Aulby’s Arrowhead Bowl over the weekend. It also marks their third top three finish in four outings.

Coach Bischoff’s squad of Shelby New, Emerald Leong, Emily O’Leary, Rachel Vogler, Brooke Ewing and Ayla Yeiter bowled on a very difficult and low scoring 36’ pattern on Saturday, rolling five regular team games of 820-829-867-815-812 for 7th place with 4,143 pins behind Robert Morris Illinois (4,671), Robert Morris Springfield (4,468), Calumet St. Joseph (4,285), St. Ambrose (4,279), Lindenwood (4,214) and Indiana Tech(4,162). 

On Sunday, Huntington began moving up the standings with very consistent Baker games and sets.  Bowling on another low scoring 39’ pattern, the Foresters rolled four game Baker sets of 781-732-740-729 for the second highest Baker total of the tournament. Their Baker scores vaulted them up the rankings into 3rd, just 27 pins short of stealing second from Robert Morris Springfield.

Robert Morris Illinois won the tournament with a total score of 7,655. Rounding out the top five included Robert Morris Springfield (7,152), HU (7,125), Calumet St. Joseph (7,122) and Lindenwood (7,061).

High games for Huntington included New (222), Yeiter (223), Ewing (192) and O’Leary (180-182-187). Last year the Foresters finished 6th out of 12 teams.

Coach Bischoff had nothing but praise for his team. “It was another great team effort and I’m very proud of them. They are working hard as a team and it shows in their results and their consistency this weekend.”

In individual action on Saturday, O’Leary, out two weeks due to illness, finished 15th out of 182 bowlers with a 178.0 average.  New finished (23rd, 173.8), Ewing (29th, 172.2), Casandra Griffith (34th, 167.60), Lauren Smart (52nd, 155.8), Ayla Yeiter (54th, 154.0) and Ciara Lovell (77th, 143.0).

Other Huntington finishes included Reba Morehouse (88th, 138.0), Julia Walton (117th, 112.20), Rachel Vogler (143rd, 153.0) and Emerald Leong (161st, 144.5). Individual standings are based on total pins.

The JV squad of Walton, Griffith, Smart, Lovell and Morehouse placed 8th out of nine teams with a score of 5,936.

On the men’s side, the Foresters moved up two spots to 10th out of 22 teams compared to last year’s finish of 12th. This weekend’s performance marked HU’s second top ten finish of the season.

The varsity crew of Jake Neely, Seth Walker, Daniel Miller, Joe Miller, Tyler Neff and Connor Brown combined to roll games of 865-832-912-734-934 for a 4,277 total on the same 36’ pattern Saturday afternoon positioning themselves in 11th heading into Sunday’s 16 Baker games.  McKendree led after Saturday with 4,814 pins followed by Robert Morris Illinois (4,768) and Lindenwood (4,771). Huntington was sandwiched between Indiana Tech (4,288) and Western Illinois (4,207).

On Sunday in Baker play, the Foresters started slow with a four-game set of 676 but came back with a strong finish, 768-776-709, to slide up a spot to finish 10th with a total score of 7,206.

Robert Morris Illinois won the tournament with 8,233 while McKendree took second with 8,157. Huntington finished right behind Lindenwood Belleville (7,363) and in front of Indiana Tech (7,185), Indiana State (7,065) and Ball State (6,975).

High games for HU included Connor Brown (194-234), Joe Miller (195), Daniel Miller (204), Tyler Neff (224), Jake Neely (180) and Seth Walker (191).

In individual action, James Knapp paced HU by finishing 24th with a 191.0 average. Other HU finishes included Colin Madden (47th, 179.0), Tyler Neff (50th, 178.6), Derek Beckler (60th, 175.0), Daniel Miller (72nd, 172.0), Joe Miller (98th, 159.4), Connor Brown (111th, 181.0), Seth Walker (128th, 165.5), Jess Myers (146th, 149.0), Emilio Chantaca (166th, 177.3), Adam Harris-Shoemaker (191st, 147.6) and Jake Neely (211th, 170.5).

This weekend, Huntington travels to Brunswick Zone Austel in Marietta, GA, for the Tier I Brunswick Southern Classic. The HU teams will look to improve on last year’s finishes of 18th place for the men and 13th place for the ladies.



Maple Leafs bring HU`s season to an end

By Lamont Neal
Tuesday, October 28th, 2014

Despite an inspired performance Saturday night, the Forester men’s soccer team’s season came to an abrupt ending as they conceded a 3-2 loss to Goshen College in the league’s last regular season contest.

With this loss, HU finishes the season with an overall record of 4-13-1 and a 9th place finish in the conference standings with a CL record of 1-7-1.

The first half favored the Foresters as they controlled tempo by generating seven shots to Goshen’s two which included creating a handful of quality opportunities inside the box but unfortunately the scoreboard didn’t reflect any sort of advantage for the visitors as it read 0-0 at intermission.

Both teams came out of break with renewed energy and it only intensified when Goshen’s Josh Stoltzfus logged the game’s first goal in the 48th minute. Huntington was quick to answer when Tyson Bradley-Kalischuk, from deep on the flank, slotted a ball to Isaac Wust inside the box who blasted it back netting to knot things up less than three minutes later.

It didn’t take long for the Maple Leafs to regain the lead, this time at the foot of Caleb Longenecker, with 57:45 on the clock. The ping pong match continued as Wust struck again in the 65th minute when he laced the equalizer just inside the right post on an assist from Ryan Pickup.

The battle was on for the next twenty minutes until Joel Yoder slid into a cross for the game-winner with just over six minutes remaining.

HU finished with 15 shots, five on target, to Goshen’s eight. Couchman notched one save while GC’s Dean Nafziger tallied three.

Despite the disappointing loss, Coach Russ Lawson was proud of his team’s determination. “Our guys’ play tonight revealed their character and quality. The whole contest was a physical, spirited battle that was inspiring for all who watched. Even after giving up a goal to start the second half, I was proud of the way we bounced back and battled until the very end.

“We will miss our five seniors. They were all key contributors to this program both on and off the field.”



HU volleyball goes 1-2 in Iowa

By Lamont Neal
Tuesday, October 28th, 2014

The HU volleyball team packed their bags and headed to Iowa for the weekend where they went 1-2 to move to 6-19 overall.

Against St. Ambrose on Friday night, the Foresters won sets two and three before dropping a 3-2 decision to the Fighting Bees. Three Foresters teamed up to account for 35 of their team’s 52 kills. Brittany Rooze and Audrey Mallers tallied 12 kills apiece. Freshman Josie Beaver finished with 11 to go along with just as many blocks.

The Foresters finished with 17 team blocks which included six from Danielle Gurwell and five each from Rooze and Mallers. Kate Cobb posted 32 digs. Katie DePew added nine digs and registered three serving aces while Emily Hubby and Annie Pizzo dished out 28 and 18 assists respectively.

On Saturday, Coach Settle and crew competed in Ashford University’s Tri-Match where they drew the home team to open up the day’s matches. The Saints moved to 24-10 after sweeping the Foresters in straight sets, 25-15, 25-19, 25-13.

HU struggled offensively to allow Ashford to make quick work of their visitors. The Foresters managed only 13 kills with Beaver topping the team with five. The rookie middle blocker also collected six blocks while Heather Medich added four.

Pizzo finished with eight assists. Cobb paced her team defensively with 16 digs.

The Foresters turned things around in their final match of the day by topping Mount Mercy in five sets, 19-25, 25-16, 28-26, 23-25, 15-13. It was an all-around solid performance that featured a .168 hitting percentage paced by Medich’s 13 kills. Beaver and Kelsey Kruse also finished in double digit kills with 12 and 11 respectively while Pizzo and Hubby directed the offense by combining for 48 assists.

Cobb padded her stats with 38 more digs against the Mustangs. Defensively the Foresters also dominated at the net to finish with 12 team blocks to MMU’s five. It was again Beaver who led the charge with eight blocks while Medich added four.

Huntington nears the end of its season with four regular season conference matches remaining, hosting Indiana Wesleyan on Tuesday at 7:00 p.m.



Baker`s hat trick paces HUWS

By Lamont Neal
Tuesday, October 28th, 2014

Courtney Baker scored within the first 20 seconds on Saturday to give her team a lead that would never be challenged as the Forester women’s soccer team enjoyed a lopsided 5-0 win over the Goshen College Maple Leafs on senior day at King Stadium.

It was the seniors’ last home game and proved to be a perfect celebration as the statesmen accounted for all of Huntington’s scoring behind the play of Baker. After scoring her team’s only goal of the first half, the New Castle native scored goals two and four in the final period for her first collegiate hat trick.

Kaitlyn Dreman made it 3-0 in the 62nd minute and then Amy Snider, moved from a defender to a forward spot for the last 20 minutes of play, put the exclamation point on the day when she found back netting with just over ten minutes remaining.

HU’s only other senior, Mary Whybrew, started in goal and teamed up with freshman Paige Coolman to log Huntington’s fourth shutout of the season.

After grabbing the early lead, Coach Tillett’s squad never relented to blow the game wide open in the second half. They limited the Maple Leafs to just four shots, five shots under their season average, while posting 16 shots, ten of which were on frame. 

“What a storybook regular season ending with all three field-playing seniors scoring goals,” said an excited Coach Tillett. “The team wanted to honor the seniors with a great game and that showed. I am very proud of not only this game but also how we ended the regular season with three wins and two ties in our final six games. The girls continue to work hard and we are excited for the tournament!”

The Foresters (5-11-2, 3-4-2) wrap up the regular season with back-to-back wins to jump ahead of Indiana Wesleyan in the league standings for the 7th spot in the Crossroads League tournament. They will face second-seeded Grace College, ranked 21st in the latest national poll, next Saturday in quarterfinal action.

HCCC Wind Ordinance Request

By Lamont Neal
Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

Huntington County Commissioners will be responding to the HCCC Wind Ordinance request and the more recent APEX wind ordinance request to amend ordinance change.  We need Citizens engaged with local government to ensure that our county officials understand that significant concern exists among the people of this county.  Physical & financial safety of the county be met by a proper amendment of the 2009 Wind ordinance.  We are concerned that officials are about to make a decision that will affect you for years to come.   We are of the opinion that while the County is evaluating the HCCC Amendment, the APEX amendment their minds are made up and think you should be concerned that the changes they will propose are not enough.    You could wake up with a landscape of 500ft towering Industrial turbines near your home.   We have worked hard trying to provide information, documentation, science and data but have not change their minds; it’s now up to you.  Please join us (wearing red) on 11/12/14 Huntington County Court house 2nd floor at 6pm to show your concern and to help communicate  what you think about wind Turbines and their proposals for ordinance change for setbacks, sound limitations and decommissioning.
1. Stronger decommissioning requirements to protect Huntington County Taxpayers from long term liability
2. Lowering the noise level requirements of any IWT installation.   By way of comparison, the County ordinance is 60db verses what HCCC Proposed 20DB G Scale.
3. Increasing the setback requirements of any industrial wind turbine (IWT) installation.  By way of comparison, the County ordinance is for setback 1000ft verses what HCCC Proposed 3960 ft.

The Huntington City-Township Public Library would like to invite people and families of all ages to participate in the 7th annual International Games Day. From 10am-4pm on Saturday, November 15th, stop by the Main Library to play a variety of games - including Ticket to Ride, Battleship, Carcassonne, Clue, Pandemic, Mario Kart, and Wii Sports - as other libraries and schools around the world do the same. The Huntington Library is located at 255 West Park Drive, Huntington.

International Games Day @ Your Library is an initiative run by volunteers from around the world and sponsored by the American Library Association. In partnership with Nordic Game Day and the Australian Library and Information Association, its purpose is to reconnect communities through their libraries around the educational, recreational, and social value of all types of games. In the 21st century, libraries are about much more than books, and the Huntington City-Township Public Library will be one of over one-thousand libraries participating in the event.



Dairy Producers to Meet Nov. 4

By Lamont Neal
Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

A series of dairy producer information meetings will be held at 6 locations around Indiana in November. Meetings are conducted by Purdue University Cooperative Extension and Farm Services Agency. Indiana Dairy Producers (IDP) is teaming with these agencies to deliver these programs that are aimed at understanding of the details of the Margin Protection Program.

These meetings will last approximately 2 hours and are free and open to the public. Dairy farmers are encouraged to attend. Membership in IDP is not required.  A meeting will be held at the 4-H Community Building at Hier’s Park in Huntington on Tuesday November 4.  Registration is at 6:00 p.m. with the program starting at 6:30 p.m.

According to a National Milk Producers Federation website (http://www.futurefordairy.com/program-details ), “The Margin Protection Program is a new and unique safety net program that will provide dairy producers with payments when dairy margins are below the margin coverage levels the producer chooses each year. Its focus is to protect farm equity by guarding against destructively low margins, not to guarantee a profit to individual producers. Sign-up started September 2, 2014, and continues through November 28, 2014.”

There will be a demonstration of analytical tools available to help dairy producers make decisions about participation, percentage of production to protect and margin levels at these November meetings.  Details about other meeting locations and dates in Indiana can be found at the Indiana Dairy Producers website:  http://indianadairy.org/component/content/?view=featured .

For more information, contact Ed Farris, Agriculture and Natural Resource Educator, Purdue Extension – Huntington County Office, 354 N Jefferson – Suite 202, Huntington by calling 260-358-4826.



Brain-boosting Pre-K Block Party

By Lamont Neal
Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

The Huntington City-Township Public Library and the Purdue Extension Office of Huntington County will hold a Block Party for Pre-K children ages 3-6. The event will begin with a story time for the children while the parents learn about the brain and developmental benefits playing with blocks provides. Karen Hinshaw, the Huntington County Purdue Extension Office Director, will inform the parents on how early block play provides aptitude and achievement improvements, impulse control, increased vocabulary, and more. After the story and information sessions, parents and children will come together for block play time. There will be various stations with different block types to enjoy.

The event will take place Thursday, November 6th, and there are two sessions: 10am and 2pm. It will be located at the Huntington Main Library, 255 West Park Drive, Huntington. The event is free to participate, but registration is required as each session is limited to 20 children; call 260-356-2900 to register your child.



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.
