My Point Of View

By Zonelle Cox Rainbolt

Much of the nearly four hour meeting of the Cordell City Council on Monday night centered on why - and how - the City could change its form of government. Currently, we operate under the Aldermanic form of government and the proposed change would move us to the Council/Manager form of government.

There appeared to be about as many in support of the change as those opposed to it, and at least some who didn’t go in with a preference for one form over the other but who were there to get information.

Teachers to Receive Pay Raise Starting Aug. 1

By State Representative Todd Russ

Teachers hired for this school year and beyond will receive a pay raise of about $6,100 on average. The raise takes effect Aug. 1.

House Bill 1023xx, later incorporated in the general appropriations bill, Senate Bill 1600, ensures that all teachers will receive a raise, which increases in amount based on years of experience and level of education. Even teachers who already are paid above the state minimum salary schedule will see a bump in pay.

While certainly helpful, the recent rainfall in Washita County didn't do much more than dent the drought

While certainly helpful, the recent rainfall in Washita County didn't do much more than dent the drought that plagues most of the county and much of the state. On the bright side, the drought has not reached the depth seen two years ago.

Financial Focus

Time to Put Excess Cash to Work?

by Phil Kliewer, Edward Jones Advisor

You’ll always want to base your investment decisions on your own needs and goals. But there may be times when you might consider adjusting your portfolio because of risks and opportunities. Now may be one of those times.

Here’s some background: In recent months, the Federal Reserve has raised shortterm interest rates several times, and given its generally favorable outlook on the economy, it has indicated it may continue bumping up interest rates gradually over the next year or so. The Fed doesn’t control long-term interest rates, but these rates often follow the lead of short-term movements. However, longer-term rates haven’t yet risen as much as shorter-term ones, which means the difference between short- and long-term rates is relatively small, historically speaking.
