EDWARD JONES: FINANCIAL FOCUS Financial Preparations for Spouse Can Brighten Every Valentine’s Day Valentine’s Day is almost here. And while it’s certainly fun to give and receive chocolates and roses, why not go a little deeper this year? Specifically, if you are married, consider using this commemoration of love as a starting point for taking care of your spouse in the future – even if you’re not part of it. Actually, both you and your spouse could designate Valentine’s Day as the beginning of your joint efforts to provide financial security for the surviving spouse when one of you is gone. Your strategy should involve at least these three key elements: •Understanding your household’s finances – In some marriages, one spouse handles all the household financial matters, including investments. If this person were to pass away first, it could leave the surviving spouse with the dual responsibility of managing day-to-day finances and tracking down all investment information. These tasks could be overwhelming to someone who is unprepared to deal with them, so you’ll want to take steps to ensure you and your spouse are aware of your joint financial picture. For starters, keep good records of all your financial assets, including investment accounts, life insurance policies and legal documents – and make sure both of you know where these records are kept. Also, if you use the services of a financial professional, it’s a good idea for you and your spouse to meet regularly with this individual to ensure both of you know where your money is being invested and how close you are to achieving your financial goals. •Creating a future income plan – You and your spouse should discuss your sources of income and identify which ones are specifically tied to each spouse and may be affected by a death, such as pensions and Social Security benefits. You’ll also want to talk about options to boost future income upon the death of a spouse. Do you have adequate life insurance? Have you considered investments that can be structured to provide a lifetime income stream? Have you thought about having the higher-earning spouse delay taking Social Security to maximize the survivor benefit for the surviving spouse? These are the types of questions you’ll want to answer as you think about providing adequate income for the partner who outlives the other. •Leaving a legacy – If you and your Criteria for Trade Fair booth judging Every year, the judges at the Trade Fair have a tough job awarding the ribbons, and this year the competition could be even tougher! In the judging process, single commercial booths compete against other single spaces; two or more spaces compete against each other; non-profit against non-profit; and food booths against food booths. Since there are so many single-space booths, some ties will occur. Points are awarded in the following categories, on a one to five basis, with 20 being a perfect score: •Clarity of Name – Do you know immediately what their business is? •Eye Appeal – Color, neatness, best use of space •Friendliness of People in Booth – Do they smile and greet people? •Originality Each booth is evaluated by three judges, who then add their scores, Thus, 60 points gets a blue ribbon, and so on. You can decorate your booth anyway you choose, i.e. showing the progress of your business through the years, where you've been and how you've come to be, what you offered when you first started your business and how you have grown. To have a business organization around for over 30 years is a big accomplishment for the Bedford community! Let’s celebrate and show the community how far we’ve all come! Good luck to everyone and we’ll see you at the fair! spouse haven’t already done so, take this opportunity to discuss your estate plans. For example, you may want to talk about the need to consult with a legal advisor to determine if you, as a couple, could benefit from setting up some type of trust arrangement. You should also discuss how, when the time comes, you want to handle any retirement assets, such as IRAs, that were titled in the deceased spouse’s name. Do you both want the assets to immediately roll over to the surviving spouse, or should you name your children as beneficiaries? Estate considerations can be complex and involve many different aspects of your financial resources. So you and your spouse need to be “on the same page” with your desires and goals. Valentine’s Day will come and go quickly. But if you use the occasion to start having the types of discussions described above, you can create something that will last a lot longer than candy or flowers.

BHS to have bowling club for 2015-16 school year Bedford High School and Rich Kenny, owner of Forest View Lanes in Temperance, have teamed up with a goal of bringing bowling to Bedford High School as a club sport beginning with the 2015-2016 school year. “The school is one of the few high schools without a bowling team,” Kenny stated. He proposed starting a Bedford Club Bowling Team with a goal of becoming a varsity team in the next couple of years, competing in the Southeastern Conference (MHSAA) and being able to compete at the state tournament. “Boys and girls teams will be formed next November and will compete in the SEC during the winter season,” stated Bedford Athletic Director Mark German. Students in grades 9 through 12 can be a part of this program with the number of teams determined by student participation. “We’re very excited about adding this opportunity for our students and are very appreciative of Mr. Kenny’s efforts to establish this program,” German added.
