My first husband was 32 when he was diagnosed with cancer. Eighteen months later, he took his last breath. As sad as that is, it could have been worse.

I don’t like guns. My father had an old shotgun he kept in the closet, unloaded of course. He was a country boy who never took to hunting, so I had no experience with firearms and the sport surrounding their use. Two husbands, no hunters. When I married Ken, he had a small handgun. He […] [...]

We’re all walking around with a cloud hanging over us. Doom and gloom is all I hear these days. Then, I attend a conference in Orlando, Fla. You know, […] [...]

Banks penalizing us for their idea … geez!

Tags: MBJ column, money, Nancy Anderson

One Sunday morning, I opened my paper to find that my bank was instituting monthly debit card fees. What!?! Don’t they make enough off us? A new law caps the charges on debit fees. This is in recognition of the change in our system of exchange. I rarely have cash in my pocket anymore. Who […] [...]
