  • On the way to car rider a few days ago I decided to puzzle over something that was unnecessary but engaging. I spend a disturbing amount of time mulling over the unnecessary. Despite my awareness of this habit I continued to mull. With absolutely no warning, the term legally dead popped into my mind. To me dead is pretty clear. Why are we expected to legalize this condition? Does being legally dead offer one entrance into an exclusive club? Does membership grant the decedent all rights and privileges afforded to this particular state of being?

    Special to The Trimble Banner
    Each year, the Bedford Rotary Club recognizes a member who has exemplified exceptional service work for the club and the community at large. Jim Hurst received the honor this year, not only for his service in 2014-2015, but for an accumulated record of service since joining Bedford Rotary in 1999.  As all club members recognize, being a part of Bedford Rotary means lots of time commitments and often a sharing of one’s resources to make the club viable. Jim has done this willingly for many years.

  • Why should families talk about money? Arguments over finances are a common problem in many families, regardless of income, age, and education. They are often due to inadequate family communication in general. Beginning to include your children in age-appropriate discussions about family finances is a great first step to helping them learn to value money and spend it wisely. If parents never talk with their children about money, they are not providing their children with the guidance and hands-on financial experience needed when they begin to spend money of their own.
