About 45 percent of Americans usually make New Year’s resolutions, according to a survey from the University of Scranton. But the same survey shows that only 8 percent of us actually keep our resolutions. Perhaps this low success rate isn’t such a tragedy when our resolutions involve things like losing a little weight or learning a foreign language. But when we make financial resolutions — resolutions that, if achieved, could significantly help us in our pursuit of our important long-term goals — it’s clearly worthwhile to make every effort to follow through.

Are you a member of the “Sandwich Generation?” This designation — which applies to people caring for their aging parents while supporting their own children — may be applicable to you if you’re either a younger baby boomer, born in the late 1950s or early 1960s, or an older member of “Generation X,” born in the mid-1960s. But any way you slice it, being in the “Sandwich” group is probably going to present you with some challenges, particularly of the financial kind — so you’ll need to make the right moves.

As I follow the recent controversy over naming, identity, and cultural representation connected with the NFL’s Washington football team’s nickname and mascot, “Redskins,” I am surprised and confused that there is such vocal resistance to changing the name not just a few deem a racial slur that offends (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/tag/washington-redskins-name-controversy).

Oh, the dream of taking your dog to the park, taking him off the leash, and playing fetch without him running away. For some dogs this can be a reality. Unfortunately, for others, the instinctual desires to smell and track will make it difficult to trust their “off-leash” freedom. I tell customers that off-leash obedience is NOT for every dog, so be sure that your dog has mastered the “come” command before attempting any off-lead work.
Halloween, the holiday built around the twin pleasures of playing dress-up and eating too much candy, is obviously a hit with children.
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.

And just as your day-to-day tasks change with the seasons, so, too, will your money management and investment activities at different phases of your life.

Our family room in the summer time is the No. 1 focal point for all gatherings and activities, from special to mundane. It’s our favorite place to hang out, hide out, and chill out from the humid summer monsoon. It’s the gathering place for the family, it’s the casual place for entertaining friends, it’s the kids homework and play space, it’s TV central and it’s definitely the coolest retreat and the most utilized room of the house.
