  • Five steps to a new financial you in 2017

    With the New Year comes an opportunity to make some improvements to your financial health. Don’t make just another resolution that disappears by Valentine’s Day. Take your financial wellness to a whole new level: a New Year, a new financial you.

    These five steps will help you to establish a good financial path for 2017:

    Take stock of your finances. Take account of all your income, expenses, and existing savings/investment accounts. Don’t forget to include any debts you may have incurred from the recent holiday season.

  • Balloons and kindness

    I always tell my boys to be kind no matter what. They should never say unkind words because you never know what kind of day a person has had or what they are going through. Someone’s bad day can often be your own misfortune when they lash out at you from their own frustration, but if you smile and say something kind the situation is usually diffused instantly.

  • Santa’s Helpers need our help

    Dear Editor,

    It’s my fourth year helping out with the Morrison Family and Santa’s Helpers. My first year helping I had just lost my son; it was a terrible time. As I was walking into the Buffalo Fire Department, there was a little girl walking out with a toy bigger than she was and a smile that could light up the whole county. Her smile probably saved my life.

    I watched them give toys, clothes, bicycles and saw how happy the children were and their parents. They got me get through another Christmas. They will help me get through this Christmas.

  • Handel’s Messiah and my boys

    Handel’s Messiah is a beautiful piece that illustrates the story of Jesus Christ from the prophecy and promise of the Redeeming Messiah to His birth “For unto us a child is born” all the way through His life and death ending with the “expectation of our own resurrection” and finally closing with the infamous Hallelujah Chorus. Pair all that with an amazing choir and the Historic Pilcher organ at Saint Catherine’s and you have an amazingly warm and uplifting musical experience. Did I mention this was a free event?
