I can finally say I know a millionaire........

well almost a millionaire, our neighbor 3 homes down from us just won 935,000.00 dollars in a lottery. So happy for him......he's just a guy, divorced, has a son who lives 3 hours away, his dog died a couple of years ago, and he's just a good neighbor. We are so happy for him, I did ask him to buy me a new car, he laughed and said he'd think about it. We're just happy for him. He's been playing the lottery for a long time, and said if ya don't play ya don't win.

A "dip" for retired Wisconsin public employees??? Really??? a dip??

For the first time in six years, retired Wisconsin public employees with all of their money in the Wisconsin Retirement System’s (WRS) main trust fund could see a reduction in their pension checks.

The State of Wisconsin Investment Board, which manages the money in the WRS funds, gave its preliminary 2018 year-end returns late Friday and, like the stock market, the results were down.

The Core Fund, with $93.6 billion in assets as of Dec. 31, had a preliminary return of minus 3.3 percent for 2018 while the smaller Variable Fund, with $7.1 billion in assets, had a preliminary return of minus 7.9 percent.

That means pension payments for most of the 203,000 retirees in the WRS could take a small hit.
