Financial Considerations When Remodeling Your Home
Home renovations can enhance your living space and raise the value of your home, but they also come with many decisions and potential pitfalls. If you’re considering a home renovation, keep these tips in mind.
How to View Your Investments in 2023
Investors came off a difficult year in 2022 – stocks fell into a bear market (defined as a decline of 20%+ from peak highs) and the bond market lost significant ground, as well. The stunning jump in inflation after years of very low interest rates made matters worse. Watching your investments and the value of the dollar depreciate simultaneously wasn’t easy – and the prospect of more volatility ahead has many investors nervous. As a financial advisor, I’ve fielded many of the below questions from my clients that you may also be contemplating. Keep in mind that while there is no single solution that applies to all investors, there are some general guidelines, based on where the markets stand today, and the historical record, that may be helpful.
Setting Your Priorities – Reduce Debt or Invest More?
If you find yourself with extra cash – either a lump sum or excess dollars from your monthly paycheck – you may be wondering what to do with it. If you have debt – such as a mortgage or student loans – the prudent option may be to pay off your balances. However, it might also make sense to put the money to work in the form of investments that have the potential to generate greater returns than the interest rate on your debt. Deciding what to do requires analysis. Here are a few factors to consider.

More than 1,200 Runners Take Flight at the FlyBy 5K and 2-Mile Fun Run/Walk at Pittsburgh International Airport
PITTSBURGH (October 2, 2021) – More than 1,200 runners and walkers raced the runway and earned their wings at this morning’s FlyBy 5K and 2-Mile Fun Run/Walk presented by CNX Resources. This family-friendly race offered participants the rare opportunity to be up close to specialized aircraft and equipment as they tested their endurance on the airfield and taxiways of Pittsburgh International Airport.
“Community partnership is incredibly important, and the FlyBy 5K is an opportunity for everyone in the region to see the airport from a different perspective,” said Allegheny County Airport Authority CEO Christina Cassotis. “This is a unique event at the airport, and we are happy to welcome runners and walkers to the airfield.”
Runners and walkers of all ages enjoyed the perfect fall weather and the course that took them past the Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker from the 171st Air Refueling Wing, a C-17 Globemaster from the 911th Airlift wing and a STAT MedEvac helicopter. Andrew Zentgraf, 25, of Oakmont and Kate Kokal, 32, of Pittsburgh were the 5K race champions finishing in 17:24 and 18:24, respectively.
“This is such a special race,” said Zentgraf. “I met my girlfriend at this race two years ago. We both took first place and so I wanted to come back here today and do my best.”
“It was a blast out there. I participated in 2018 and won, but then took a hiatus as I had my son,” said Kokal. “So this is my comeback, and I had my husband and son out there supporting me as they did the 2-Mile Fun Run.”
Presented by the Allegheny County Airport Authority and P3R, the family-friendly race benefitted the Allegheny County Airport Authority Charitable Foundation. This nonprofit organization was established in 2013 to enhance the experience of military, families and others traveling through Pittsburgh International and Allegheny County Airport. Since 2016, the event has raised nearly $100,000 for the Allegheny County Airport Authority Charitable Foundation.
“Each year, we see families take on the runway together,” said Troy Schooley, P3R CEO. “And the best part about watching them cross the finish line is knowing that each participant is helping reunite a military family through the Allegheny County Airport Authority Charitable Foundation.”
