SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS COURT ORDER VOIDING DITCH PROJECT
May 19, 2016
The Minnesota Supreme Court this week has refused to set aside a Court of Appeals decision that invalidated a ditch project constructed by the Sauk River Watershed District in central Minnesota.
The Sauk River Watershed District is a large regional authority covering parts of Stearns, Todd, Pope, Douglas and Meeker Counties.

Finance Professionals Assert Investing in Retirement: Baby Boomers and Retirees Should Consider Protection, Growth and Liquidity
May 18, 2016
Traditionally, financial advice comes from two main sources—insurance agents and investment advisors. Financial tools are great for designing a diverse retirement plan, but the tools are only as good as the advice that goes along with them. The options for investing are continually evolving, but every single investment vehicle can be easily categorized according to three fundamental characteristics - protection, growth and liquidity.
Diversification is the time-honored financial theory for helping investors and consumers reduce the ups and downs of their retirement portfolio by spreading money into different vehicles in order to create a balance of protection, growth and liquidity throughout retirement. Diversification aims to reduce risks of specific types of investments—for instance, if one company in the S&P 500 has a bad quarter, those people whose portfolios are diversified probably won’t see their retirement plan derailed.
