Investors Should Avoid 'Great Expectations'
11:06AM / Wednesday, October 26, 2016

Apart from death and taxes, few events in our world are consistently predictable – and investment returns are definitely not one of them. What can you, as an individual investor, do to cope with the ups and downs of the financial markets and make progress toward your long-term goals?

To begin with, you should be aware that the financial markets have fluctuated greatly – daily, monthly and yearly – over the past three decades. Overall, though, the financial markets trended upward, as measured by major indexes such as the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S & P 500.

State Fire Marshal Offers Halloween Safety Tips
12:06PM / Monday, October 24, 2016

State Fire Marshal Peter J. Ostroskey offers fire safety tips for celebrating Halloween.
