Making Washington listen to Main Street
As I near the end of my 10 years as a syndicated financial columnist, my goal has been to give people common sense financial insights.
Many of them are in my new book, Don McNay’s Greatest Hits: Ten Years as an Award Winning Columnist.
I have advanced degrees and designations, but my best lessons were learned at the school of hard knocks. The tuition there was higher than the prestigious universities but the lessons were more valuable. I want to share those lessons and save others the pain, money, and time of going through them.
Tired of hearing the excuse, ‘It’s not my job’?
You’re walking through the break room and notice that someone left their garbage on the break table. You glance at it, but do nothing about it as you make your way back to your work station.
You think to yourself “how disgusting” and “that's not my job to pick up someone else’s trash.”
Later that same day, you take documents to the shredder and realize the shredder is full. You think, “I don't have the time to empty it. I'll come back after someone else has cleaned it.”

Birthday celebration at Halcomb Knob Farm on Friday
It’s a bright and beautiful Tuesday morning here in Paint Lick with a welcome sunshine after the cooler, rainy night, yet we will see an even stranger Wednesday as our weather will turn to freezing rain and maybe some snow!
I know that in my lifetime, I have never seen days like these! I thank my good Lord for all that He sends our way – even the strange stuff – because I do know that one day things will be better.
Waco churches planning Halloween ‘trunk-or-treat’
Brrrr. You can tell November is just around the corner!
After an unusually warm fall (was it just last week?), these 40-ish temperatures sure feel winter-like, don't they?
Someone said the other day that he believes we have only two seasons now – summer and winter. I'm inclined to agree.
You know next week is Halloween and trick or treat for the youngsters. Most of our churches are offering “trunk-or-treat” on that night, Oct. 31, from 6 to 8 p.m. as an alternative and “safer” way to collect all those treats!
