    My wife Alice and I will vote to continue Jeannette as our legislator.

    First, let’s take a look at a brief history of Roth IRAs. Roth IRAs were established in 1997 as part of the Taxpayer Relief Act to offer another way for Americans to save for retirement.
    Although contribution limits are the same with Traditional and Roth IRAs, there are some major differences.

    Projects in the mountain town of Los Alamos shape strong tools for tomorrow. New evidence is the $27 million in contracts among Los Alamos County, Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), the state of New Mexico and an alliance of 19 Japanese companies.

    We all know that stress can affect you physically. Some amount of stress is inevitable in life and positive stress can also be helpful to thrive in life.
