As an investor, you’ll eventually need to make all sorts of decisions — and some will be difficult. But there’s one choice you can make that can be relatively easy: reinvesting stock dividends.

Now that another year is ending, it’s a good time to take stock of where you are on your journey toward financial security. Of course, you could find many different “measuring sticks” to assess your progress, but you can certainly gain considerable information just by asking yourself some basic questions.
It looks harder than it really is — everything starts with a first step. But when that thing you are trying to do is different or difficult, then that first step seems very hard to do.
The state’s charter schools are demanding more money from taxpayers, to the tune of $135 million a year.
The clash of colors should have been disorienting.
It looked like Disney Animation was dead in the water for a while there. Sure, Pixar has had the company’s back for almost two decades now. In terms of movies that were solely produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios, though, it was a bit of a downhill spiral from “Pocahontas” in 1995 to “Chicken Little” in 2005. While there were some under appreciated gems in the mix like “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” nothing took audiences by storm like “Beauty and the Beast” or “The Lion King” did.
What do you think? Can porn be addictive? More mental health professionals are telling us “yes it can,” and further, it can be as addictive as hard-core drugs and it’s known to change the health of the brain.

Rarely has a story about an angelic schoolgirl been narrated by Death. But such is the case in the dark, yet wondrous Nazi Germany-set "The Book Thief." ''Here's a small fact: You are going to die," we're told via voiceover by the Grim Reaper as we meet our young heroine, Liesel Meminger, played exquisitely by 13-year-old French-Canadian newcomer Sophie Nelisse.
As you probably know, a mutual fund may contain many different types of investments, such as stocks, bonds and government securities. But as an investor, you need to pay attention not only to what goes into your mutual fund, but also what comes out of it — namely, the three ways in which a fund can compensate you.
For the past 30 years, I have been a literacy advocate. During the summer of 1983, I learned that my grandfather was illiterate.
Somewhere deep into "The Counselor," I found myself mesmerized by a metaphysical monologue from one of the characters — someone who sounded strikingly similar to my college philosophy professor — and trying to figure out exactly what he meant, and how it related to the person he was saying it to.
In case you are wondering how to vote on the Kyrene School District and Tempe Union High School District bond overrides, here are some thoughts.
Whether they knew it or not, it was a bit of a test.
After plenty of haggling, and a fair amount of political theater, Congress reached a last-minute agreement to raise the debt ceiling and end the partial government shutdown. Most people would agree that a fully functioning government that can pay its bills on time is a positive thing — and it’s certainly good news for investors, because a default on the part of the U.S. government could have had serious repercussions in the financial markets. But what’s next?
Who you are and your life depends on your past, your community, your neighborhood, your childhood, your parents, etc. This can be summarized by calling it your “circumstances” or your situation. This can sometimes weigh heavily on you if your circumstances are not ideal or are challenging. The good thing is that your circumstances don’t always determine who you are in the future.
I am writing out my check for property taxes. Many of you do not see the taxes and overrides since you pay them with your house payment. This year, the amount for the Kyrene override went up 3.1 percent over last year. The override amounts are actually more than the elementary bond rates.
It’s amazing to me how the Tempe Union and Kyrene school districts are so much like the federal government when it comes to operating within a budget. Has anyone noticed that?
In the past few months since I retired, I have taken a great interest in watching our community very closely. I now have the time to see how Ahwatukee functions in the day time, something I rarely saw when I worked — never had time to do so.
The Tempe Union High School District Governing Board is set to rewrite a weak resolution concerning the Loop 202 freeway extension and come out in full opposition of the project in November.
As an investor, how much risk can you tolerate? It’s an important question — because the answer can help you make the right investment choices.
Mr. Don Kennedy, your entire letter is not just inaccurate (“Operate within budget instead of asking for bond override,” AFN, Oct. 9), it’s very premise for opposing the request of the district doesn’t even exist. Tempe Union is not requesting a bond. There is no tax increase. There is no debt in this request. There are no additional dollars going in to the budget. I realize this makes this response brutally short and lacking great debate. None of what you said is true. So since we are supporting the very action you seem to call for, to endorse a CONTINUATION of the EXISTING spending authority WITHOUT a tax increase for a school district that has, by far, the LOWEST tax rates in Maricopa County, I would hope that the wonderful services provided by this district has now earned your vote.
