  • Payday loan industry is changing, thanks to Internet

    You might have been tempted by one of the many ads for check advance or payday loans.
    You have probably heard them called deferred deposit checks, cash advance loans, payday loans, or post-dated check loans. Whatever they are called, these loans always share certain features. They are all for a short term (usually 14 days), for a small amount (maximum $500), and have a high service fee.

  • COLUMN: Grandparents are worthy of honor

    With grandparent’s day just around the corner, I think it’s appropriate to commend the works of grandparents in our county, state and nation.
    Since being declared a national holiday by former President Jimmy Carter in 1978, Americans have taken advantage of the Sunday after Labor Day, to celebrate the impact that grandparent’s have had on their lives.
    Grandparents, in my opinion, are an essential part in every person’s life, often times offering unbiased advice and a shoulder to lean on.
