Nolan President, Trumascape LLC planted in the spring. In both cases, homeowners can save big by planting trees in the winter months. Landscapers and nurserymen are less busy in November, December, and February than they are in the spring and are willing to offer drastically lower labor prices for work done in these Believe it or not, the best time to plant trees is in late fall. Trees have a much better chance of surviving a transplant (from the nursery to your home) if they have been dug and handled during their dormancy stage. Tree root systems go dormant in late fall and winter and then break dormancy, with a rush of root growth, just before they bud in the spring. We recommend planting most trees, such as ornamentals, maples, and other shade tree months. If you pre-order your varieties in the late fall trees for a fall dig and schedule a and early winter as it November or December planting it is the least destructive is likely that you can find yourself on their root system. saving up to 50% on your tree Some varieties project. however, including most oaks, are dug in the late winter and early spring just before they break dormancy. These trees should be November 2012 • Page 11 Don’t overlook Financial risks in retirement When you retire, you may well have accomplished some important financial goals, such as sending your children through college and paying off your mortgage. Yet, you can’t relax just yet, because your retirement could easily last two or three decades, which means you’ll need at least two or three decades’ worth of income — which, in turn, means you’ll need the proper savings and investment strategies in place. And, just as importantly, you’ll also need to be aware of the types of risk that could threaten these strategies. Let’s consider some of these risks: Longevity — None of us can say for sure how long we’ll live. But it’s still important to have an estimate, based on your health and family history. So if you think you may live, for 25 years in retirement, you’ll want to withdraw enough from your investments each year to enjoy a comfortable lifestyle — but not so much that you deplete your funds before the 25 years have passed. Inflation — We’ve experienced pretty mild inflation over the past few years. But over time, even a low rate of inflation can seriously erode your purchasing power. To illustrate: If your current monthly costs are $3,000, with only a 3% annual inflation rate, that would be about $4,000 in 10 years. And in 25 years at that same rate, your monthly costs will have more than doubled, to about $6,200. To help protect yourself against inflation risk, it’s important to have at least some investments that offer growth potential, rather than only owning fixed-income vehicles, such as certificates of deposit (CDs). You’ll also want to consider sources of rising income potential, such as dividend-paying stocks. (Keep in mind, though, that stocks can reduce or discontinue dividends at any time and are subject to market fluctuation and loss of principal.) Market Fluctuations — When you retire and begin taking withdrawals from your investment portfolio — that is, when you begin selling off investments — you’d obviously like prices to be high. After all, the classic piece of investment advice is “buy low, sell high.” But it’s impossible to try to “time” the market this way, as it will always fluctuate. In the neIghborhood? That’s why you may want to consider sources of income whose value is not dependent on what’s happening in the Let’s get to know one another. financial markets. Your financial advisor may be able to recommend investments that can provide you with this New to the area? Unfamiliar with the Edward Jones way of doing type of income stream. business?

Consequently, when you retire, you’ll certainly need to Call today to schedule a no-cost, no-obligation portfolio review. be aware of the interest-rate environment and the income you can expect from these investments. Longer-term Mike Miletich fixed-rate vehicles may be tempting, as they typically offer Financial Advisor higher rates than shorter-term ones, but these longer term . 1318 South Baltimore investments may have more price fluctuation and inflation Kirksville, MO 63501 660-665-5693 risk than shorter-term investments.

Retirement can be a rewarding time in your life. And you can help make your retirement years even more enjoyable by understanding the relevant investment risks and taking steps to address them.

The college offered no refunds if the student was expelled or suspended since the college would not encourage that sort of behavior. Of course there were many instructors to teach the various classes and to enforce the rules at Oaklawn, even though the teacher’s salary was quite low compared to what college teachers receive in pay today. Even Professor Doyle was not excluded from teaching; he taught moral and mental science, languages, literature, pedagogics (teaching methods), and law. Professor Doyle was president from 1876 through 1886. From 1886 through 1888 the school was headed by M. Simpson. In 1888 through 1890 Oaklawn was headed by C. H. Wise. Oaklawn was run efficiently, though the number of students and incoming tuition decreased. Professor Doyle returned and headed the school until its closing in 1899. Since he was a lawyer, he may have found a situation where he was needed or he may have tired of Novelty. Why he originally left has passed into obscurity.

An average of 104 students attended Oaklawn College each year with about an even number of male and female students. Extra-curricular activities centered on Oaklawn’s Literary Societies, especially Oaklawn Literary, the senior society. Students especially looked forward to the weekly Literary Society meetings. This was the only time young men and women were allowed to date each other. All students were expected to attend the meetings, whether or not they took part in the activities.
