Women face financial challenges after gray divorce

Since the 1990s, the rate at which people over 50 years old get divorced has doubled. It has been termed "gray divorce," and it is more common than ever in the United States.

Experts warn that this can lead to a lot of financial challenges, especially for women. No matter how you feel about traditional gender roles, the reality is that men are still the main financial planners in most marriages. Studies have shown that women defer to their husbands in this regard in 56 percent of cases.

Can a Kentucky Senator sue the neighbor who attacked him?

A guilty plea was in the cards in the case of the retired doctor who tackled Kentucky Senator Rand Paul to the ground while mowing his lawn. Prosecutors charged Rene Boucher with assaulting a member of Congress resulting in a personal injury, a felony under federal law.

These life events should lead to a review of your will

One of the greatest mistakes that many people make is they assume that estate planning is only meant for people with a vast amount of wealth. But to the contrary, estate planning is something that everyone should engage in as early as possible in their life. The decisions you can make in your estate plan are crucial, and any wealth that you have -- no matter how "small" it may seem to you -- should be protected.

A will is the central pillar of an estate plan. This critical document should not be taken lightly, and after you create yours, it should be properly maintained and reviewed on a frequent basis. Letting it decay and become obsolete or out-of-date is a major "no-no" when it comes to estate planning.

To strive for excellence and treat them like they deserve to be treated. Like family. With this in mind we're hosting Friday After 5 this weekend, complete with free t-shirts and a photo booth. Tomorrow morning we're hosting the pancake breakfast at Help Build Hope. Come on out to the Owensboro Convention Center starting at 8 am to participate in an opportunity to build housing for low income families. We're excited to be part of these events and we look forward to meeting more friends in the community.
