Re: Miami Open Tennis

I was in the WPB/Delray Beach area in February for the first time. I was a little surprised at the volume of traffic at all times of the day. May take a while to get to Miami.

Re: Buying Used Car- Less than 11K out door

Another vote for a used Prius. I bought a 2012 last year for a little over $13K, 35K miles. I am still amazed at the gas mileage I achieve...in the summer, I often get 70 MPG on my morning commute.

Re: Fund choices for 457(b)

Re: Fund choices for 457(b)

Fund choices for 457(b)

Hi all, I'm a 24 year old government employee, fairly new to the workforce. I've decided to sign up for the state 457(b) and have some very basic questions on the fund choices. First, I'd like to keep it simple; index funds and some bonds. At this age, I feel comfortable doing an 85/15 AA, but sugge...
