If you’re going to try to be Superman, be careful where you fly

 

boysupermanClarksville, TN – Bill, my dear husband, was like most little boys when he was growing up—eagerly interested in trying out new and exciting adventures.

That’s why Superman—and all super heroes—are so fascinating to children. The urge to fly is somehow innate. We see birds do it. We see butterflies do it. We see tiny insects do it. Why can’t we?

In Bill’s case, he decided that if Superman could do it, so could he. Confiscating a towel to use as a cape, he sneaked over to a neighbor’s farm and climbed up into the barn. Climbing the ladder into the loft was a cinch as was opening the doors to the outside.

That’s when things became a bit complicated. «Read the rest of this article»

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of January 11th, 2015

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – The December Employment Report was strong, but with some conflicting details. Nonfarm payrolls rose by a greater-than-expected 252,000 (median forecast: +240,000), with a net revision to October and November of +50,000.

It was the strongest year for job growth since 1999 (and the strongest private-sector job growth since 1997). The unemployment rate fell to 5.6% (median forecast: 5.7%), with annual benchmark revisions making little difference – however, the drop in the unemployment rate was due entirely to a decrease in labor force participation (don’t read too much into that, seasonal adjustment is tricky in December).
