  • Ask the expert: Questions about buying a home

    How can I

    negotiate a price?

    One of the best ways to negotiate the best price is to hire an experienced Realtor that is a strong negotiator. A Realtor can research the sold homes in your area to tell you the average the list price/sale price ratio. They can also research similar homes that have sold to confirm a fair sale price.

    Which loans might be best?

  • Lifelong friendships should not be taken for granted

    When I posted my kindergarten graduation photos on Facebook, I was pleasantly surprised to receive messages and friend requests from people I last saw at the age of five. Through the miracle of social media, I now have the ability to learn what my kindergarten classmates have been up to for the past 40 years.

    Cherub-faced Eric, who walked next to me in the processional, now has a full beard and a family of five.

    Becky, the girl I envied for her pretty mass of curls, is a doctor and apparently uses a hair straightener every day.

  • Things I’d like to see

    There are many things I have had the joy of seeing in my lifetime – the Grand Canyon, Hawaii, some of the great cathedrals of Europe, the isle of Capri and the Canadian Rockies. There are many things I would still like to see – the Holy Land, Australia and New Zealand, the Greek isles, Germany and Victoria Falls. I want to continue to see my home happy and peaceful. I want to see the difference between right and wrong. Most of all, I want to see my Higher Power.

  • Goshen mayor’s ‘media ban’ misguided, unfair to his city

    You have citizens pulling in every different direction, encouraging you to pass this ordinance or don’t pass that one. Do this or that. The managing of finances, clearing roads – this goes on and on.

    We get it, not everyone’s cut out to be an elected official. But if you’re going to run for and win the job, you can never, ever take your pail and shovel and go home.

    Well, unless you’re Goshen Mayor Bobby Thacker.

  • Finding healthy snacks once school begins

Meals are rushed, lunches can be picked over and snacks are mostly grab-and-go. Here’s a few tips to keep kids eating healthy foods all school year round.

    Two stories

    Two weeks ago I read in The Oldham Era that the school Superintendent could not manage and needed another increase in taxes. School systems seem to have a hard time finding capable managers. The next time you have an increase in expenses just go to your boss and tell him/her that you are just going to have to start taking from the company. It works for the school superintendent.
