This Mother's Day, Consider Financial Gifts for Your Adult Children
Submitted by Edward Jones,
10:21AM / Wednesday, May 09, 2018

Mother's Day is almost here. If you;re a mother with grown children, you might receive flowers, candy, dinner invitations or some other type of pleasant recognition. However, you might find that you can get more enjoyment from the holiday by giving, rather than receiving.

The longest-lasting gifts may be financial ones – so here are a few moves to consider:

* Contribute to your child's IRA. If your children have earned income, they are eligible to contribute to an IRA, which offers tax benefits and an almost unlimited array of investment options. You can't contribute directly to another person's IRA, but you can write your child a check for that purpose. This could

By Bill Schmick,
04:59PM / Friday, May 04, 2018
You would think an unemployment rate that hit 3.9 percent in April would have cheered the market. It was, after all, the lowest such rate in 18 years. But no, all eyes were focused on the first round of China/U.S. trade talks, which conclude today.   The American team includes Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and two, hardline China hawks: Robert Lighthizer, our trade rep, and the administration's trade and manufacturing adviser, Peter Navarro. U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin heads the team that is trying, according to the President 's tweet, "trying to negotiate a level playing field."   What we would like to see from the Chinese is a commitment to increase

'Avengers: Infinity War': Goldberger's Complaint
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
04:24PM / Friday, May 04, 2018
