CAPTAIN RON'S CORRAL - FRIENDLY FOODIE

Details

Saddle up for a good time! In the spotlight this week is Captain Ron's Corral, a fairly new establishment in the Waynedale area. And let me tell you, the name of the steakhouse suits it perfectly. This country bar and restaurant offers you all the country amenities: great country music, good food, pool tables, drink specials, sports on the big screen, and quality country charm and service.

I love walking into Captain Ron's because I can always count on being greeted with a smile by multiple...

CONFLICTS IN SYRIA

Details

The clouds of a new Middle Eastern conflict have started gathering on the horizon. This time there is no question that the storm brings chemical weapons with it.

Thousands more have died in Syria from conventional fighting in the last year as Sunni rebel forces have tried to oust the Alawite government of Syrian president Assad who has allies in both Iran and Russia. The Alawites...

Details

Fall is almost officially here — and if you're like most people, you're probably wondering how summer went by so fast. Those trips to the lake or the beach are fading in memory now, giving way to helping kids with homework, raking leaves and the other rites of autumn. And just as your day-to-day tasks change with the seasons, so, too, will your money management and investment activities at different phases of your life.
