1st Quarter 2015: Man-Boy
By Benton S. Bragg CFP®, CFA®

There was a boy on my 1980 Quail Hollow Middle School football team named "Man-Boy." Actually that was his nickname. His real name was Darryl Redfern. When I first met him, I wondered about the origins of his nickname. Man-Boy? While he was pretty stocky, he was probably three or four inches shorter than I was and he was a pretty quiet guy. It wasn't until we started practicing in full pads and helmets that it became clear how he got the nickname. Read more

Good Debt and Bad Debt
April 2015
by Benton S. Bragg, CFP®, CFA®

I wish I had borrowed a million bucks back in March of 2009 as the market bottomed and used the money to buy stocks. With the market up more than 200% since then, my investment would be worth more than $3 million today and I could sell the stocks, pay off the debt, pay some taxes and enjoy my net profit of around $1.5 million. Whistling on my way to the bank! We all wish it were that easy, don't we? Read more

Retirement Under Construction
April 2015
by Mary Lou Daly, CFP®, CPA

Retirement "ain't what it used to be," or likely isn't what we thought it would be. Playing golf, walking on the beach, sipping martinis by the pool, and traveling will be only part of the retirement picture. What else will define these final decades of our lives? Read more

Planned Giving Problems and Solutions: Make Sure Your Wishes Come True
November 2014
by Phillips M. Bragg, CFP®, ARP®

It is inconsistent that so many generous folks, who relished giving during their lifetime, leave nothing at their death to their favorite charities. Perhaps it can be assumed that they meant to make provisions but were not sure how. The following are examples of problems that cause procrastination, and solutions to those problems. Read more

The Sound of Everything Unveiled

The Sound of Everything

Commissioned by company founder Frank Bragg, the work is the largest of a series of Cassidy's new sculptures that attempt to create physical equivalents of musical sound and its emotional and associative resonances. The eighteen foot tall sculpture is constructed from steel and has a powder coated surface. The soft silver blue color was specifically chosen to make reference to the changing characteristics of the sky. On a gray day the sculpture looks blue and on a blue sky day it appears to be more silver. Read more.
