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.
