Collins Credit Union hosts free estate planning seminar

 NORTH LIBERTY– How do you know if you need a trust instead of a simple will?  Many people assume that Revocable Living Trusts are just for the wealthy, but the benefits they can offer to the average person are significant. 
 Join Collins Community Credit Union (CCCU) and First Community Trust for a free estate planning seminar. The seminar will summarize the estate planning process and address factors to consider when assessing the need for a simple will versus a Revocable Living Trust.

Guest Column

Ten years ago this week, a newspaper veteran took a chance. And a relative newcomer in the industry began what’s been a dream gig.
My business partner and I celebrate 10 years of business this week. It’s been a helluva ride– with no doubt more peaks and valleys to come.

Food For Thought

My relationship with the telephone began when I was in second grade. My mother was expecting my youngest sister and Dad thought it a good idea for me and my other two sisters to be able to reach him on the phone – just in case “something” happened to Mother and she couldn’t get to the phone. Nearly everybody in Knoxville had four-party lines at that time. Long before the days of the rotary dial, we simply picked up the handset and, when the operator said, “Number please,” we told her the number we wanted.

Walkin'

As I write this I’m sitting at a picnic table on the corner of Main and Market Street in St. Genevieve, Mo.
Sabra and I are on our eighth annual two-week bicycle trip. Last year we went to Germany, and prior to that Wisconsin, Minnesota and Missouri.
This year’s trip started in Alton, Ill. I chose it because it is midway between two places we wanted to visit: St. Louis and Pere Marquette State Park.
