5. Emotions of Retirement – Are You Ready? -

Ray’s Take: How prepared are you for the emotional side of retirement?

Most of us see retirement planning as a quantitative exercise to be as certain as we can that the financial aspects are in good order. Everything else we tend to see through rose-colored glasses, envisioning it as a time when we are free to do the things we’ve been putting on hold for years. But there’s another side to retirement that few fully think through in advance. 

6. Businesses Welcome Elvis Presley Birthplace Trail Completion -

TUPELO, Miss. (AP) – No more orange barrels to drive around, no more lane shifts, no more trouble getting in and out of parking spaces.

7. Agreeing on Retirement Issues – Start Early -

Ray’s Take Communication is the key to avoiding conflict in any aspect of life. And retirement issues are no exception.

11. Carrying Debt Into Retirement -

Ray’s Take: In a perfect world, when we retire, our debt should already be “retired.” 

But when it comes to retirement these days, the picture is much different for the baby boomer generation than it was for their parents. According to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, older consumers are carrying more debt, including mortgages, credit cards and even student loans, into their retirement years. In 2013, the average household headed by someone age 55 or older had $73,211 in debt, according to the Employee Benefit Research Institute.

12. U of M Athletics Nears 901 Campaign Goal -

19. Wal-Mart Revives Smiley Face Image for Price Marketing -

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) – Wal-Mart is reviving its yellow smiley image to be the face of its low-price marketing.

The nation's largest retailer is emphasizing customer service and aiming to reinforce a price leadership claim that's been chipped away at by increased competition from online leader Amazon.com and other rivals. The smiley, dormant for ten years, has returned to some digital advertising and will be in TV ads and some store signs starting next week. From there it's likely to expand.

24. Retirement Spending – Easy to Underestimate -

Ray’s Take: Conventional wisdom from cookie-cutter financial calculators about retirement is to aim for 70 percent of current income in retirement.

80. Taxable vs. Non-Taxable Retirement Income -

Ray’s Take The taxable status of an investment account refers to whether any income earned in the account is taxable at the time of earning, or possibly not at all.

A good example would be a 401(k) or IRA. These accounts are considered tax-deferred because earned interest, dividends or capital gain distributions are not taxed until money is withdrawn – there is a payday someday. Other accounts, such as a cash account, high-interest savings accounts or non-qualified mutual fund accounts would be taxable in the year interest money is earned.

Equally important is the ability to look ahead to marketing trends on the horizon that will or already are impacting your company’s growth.

84. Ricky Tarrant Jr. Brings Speed, Athleticism to Memphis Backcourt -

A college basketball team led by an inexperienced point guard can expect problems. So, too, a team led by a point guard who might be a step slow.

Last season, the University of Memphis had both challenges. They could go young – that didn’t really work – or they could go with then-junior Kedren Johnson, who was not in shape the first part of the season and even later as his conditioning improved, was never going to be accused of having a lightning-quick first step.

85. Give Your Retirement A Raise -

Ray’s Take People used to not worry very much about their retirement. They tended to work for the same company all their lives, and at 65 they got a watch and a pension.
