WTC - Warrior Transition CommandWest Point, NY – The day that Spc. Amanda Lyle walked out of the Jefferson Barracks VA Hospital Polytrauma Clinic, a doctor stopped and asked her, “You know you’re a miracle, right?”

So she had been told, but Lyle said that she thankfully didn’t remember those first few weeks after a bad car accident in El Paso, Texas, in November 2012, which caused a severe traumatic brain injury, along with bleeding in her brain, a broken scapula and two broken vertebrae.

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of June 22nd, 2014

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – As expected, the Federal Open Market Committee left short-term interest rates unchanged, reaffirmed its forward guidance on the federal funds target rate, and trimmed another $10 billion from the monthly pace of asset purchases (to $35 billion starting in July). In the Summary of Economic Projections, Fed officials lowered their projections for 2014 GDP growth.

However, that was due entirely to the reported decline in 1Q14 GDP. Implicitly, Fed officials are expecting a 3.1% to 3.4% average pace of GDP growth in the final three quarters of 2014. The forecasts ranges for GDP growth in 2015 and 2016 were the same as the ones made in March.
