  • 2/15/2020 With tax season here, many filers are focusing only on their 2019 forms, thinking about how much tax they may owe, or hoping their calculations lead to a refund.
    But it’s never too early, especially the closer one gets to retirement, to look further ahead and plan for tax scenarios that will likely change in your non-working years.
  • Writer advocates changing system
    2/15/2020 Dr. Glenn Mollette
    How many individuals will make $137,700 in 2020? This is the maximum amount of earnings subject to the Social Security tax for this year. This increase will impact about 12 percent of the 171 million workers who are covered under Social Security.
    People who make over $137,700 are not subject to Social Security tax this year. Last year it was a $132,900.
  • Here’s 5 signs you’re entering menopause
    2/1/2020 Menopause is a natural part of aging for women, but there is no predictable pattern or timeline for the symptoms, doctors say.
    While hot flashes, irritability and weight gain are generally well known, symptoms like anxiety, hair loss, and incontinence can catch a woman by surprise and cause concern, even though they’re normal, says Dr. Arianna Sholes-Douglas (www.drarianna.com), author of The Menopause Myth: What Your Mother, Doctor, And Friends Haven’t Told You About Life After 35.
    “Many myths exist about what to expect when going through menopause,” says Dr. Sholes-Douglas, founder of Tula Wellness Center in Tucson, Ariz. “It’s important to know your body well enough to know what’s happening and get reassurance that what’s going on is normal.”
  • Is your aging body sending distress signals?
Save it from a diabolical enemy – you
    1/24/2020 If we neglect our bodies, misuse them, or otherwise fail to treat them with proper respect, they have an effective means of expressing their dissatisfaction.
    We feel pain – in our joints, in our muscles, in our backs; pretty much any place where there exists a nerve that can fire off an urgent distress signal to the brain.
    And as we age, those distress signals seem to become more frequent, with the simplest of movements, such as bending over to pick up a fallen object, creating anguish and instant regret.

    Young Hoosiers can participate in a variety of paid internships, apprenticeship and work-based programs to jump start their careers. However, some may turn down those experiences because they could jeopardize their families’ ability to certain benefits. Every Hoosier should be able to take advantage of opportunities to learn regardless of their families’ financial situation. That is why I am authoring a law that would exempt dependents’ income earned through these programs from their families’ eligibility for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families.

  • Careers don’t rely on age
    12/28/2019 The start of the New Year is always a great time to pause and look for career advice. Career advice is relevant for any age and any stage of your career. Adapting your skills, career goals, network, and industry knowledge is more important as you age in the workforce.
    As the New Year starts, take some time to focus internally and externally how you can make the best career moves and actions for a great year.
  • Shop local on Small Business Saturday
    11/29/2019 We love shopping in Downtown Noblesville, where storefronts are decorated in different themes and different colors for the holidays.
    And while today is Black Friday, I usually defer my Friday shopping until Small Business Saturday in downtown Noblesville.
    Small Business Saturday is an American shopping holiday, the Saturday after Thanksgiving, founded in 2010 by American Express to promote small businesses.
    In Noblesville, Mayor John Ditslear has previously proclaimed the day to “support local businesses that create jobs, boost our local economy and preserve our neighborhoods.”
    And according to American Express, for every $1 spent in a small business 67 cents of that goes back into the local community. 
    I like to support our downtown shops and encourage the community to do the same.
  • Deputy Mayor looks back on time in office
    10/31/2019 It has been my privilege to serve the Noblesville community during Mayor John Ditslear’s final term in office. Six months ago, I announced to friends and co-workers that I planned to step down from my appointed position. Now, as we prepare for a new mayor to take office in January, I’d like to share some thoughts on some key successes our city has accomplished during these past four years. 
    Professionally, I’m looking forward to moving on to a new challenge, where I can apply my public affairs and communications background to build communities in new and exciting ways. Personally, I will miss having a direct role in the completion of many Noblesville NOW initiatives that have only begun or are still in the planning stages. 
    Rather than slow down during his final term, Mayor Ditslear and team have made great progress and blazed trails (literally) on dozens of high priority initiatives since 2016. Below is a handful of initiatives I have had the honor of working on as well as others our city employees have achieved through their hard work, dedication and professionalism:

  • 10/29/2019 As someone who experienced firsthand the many negative aspects of fully socialized health care while growing up in the former Soviet Union – including how those aspects contributed to the death of my father at the age of 41 – I am deeply concerned that so many aspects of health care in our country are now socialized as well. Therefore, I took a deeper dive into this issue when I became a legislator.
    When I talk about the aspects, I mean consumer aspects I experienced such as:
    · being uninsured as a small business owner;
    · having corporate insurance and working crazy hours with little kids;
    · paying for “COBRA”;
    · purchasing high deductible insurance through the individual marketplace before “Obamacare”;
    · being forced into “Obamacare”; and
    · paying penalties for not having “Obamacare” due to its cost.
