  • As many parents of college students will tell you, the cost of their child’s education may be more than they originally planned. Higher education costs continue to rise, leaving many of us wishing we had a secret nest egg or an additional savings account just for college expenses.
    A 529 savings plan is one way for parents of young or school-aged children to have a little extra money saved for future college expenses. It gets its name from Section 529 of the Internal Revenue Code, which created these types of savings accounts in 1996.

  • Fall is a great time to take soil samples for fertility analyses of your garden, lawns, landscape plantings, row crop fields, hayfields and pastures.
    Doing it now can allow you plenty of time to follow fertility recommendations before planting season, and that could end up saving you time and money. I realize this process will be a bit more difficult due to the lack of recent rainfall.

  • In recognition of Constitution Day, Sept 17, Susanne Konkle, Intermediate teacher at Bedford Elementary School, invited Trimble County Attorney Crystal Heinz to be a guest speaker in her 5th grade Social Studies classroom at BES.
