Lily: A Symbol of Life

By: Rosalie Laune - No other flower is associated with the observance of Easter more than the lily.  Its beautiful white flowers are symbolic of purity, joy, hope and life.  However, the lily was cultivated by civilizations long before it became associated with Easter and has symbolic meaning to many different religions.

The name “lily” is applied chiefly (and correctly) to any member of the genus Lilium and contains over 100 species. All are herbaceous perennials that arise from bulbs and produce large, showy flowers.  Most are native to temperate regions of the northern hemisphere.

Time For Some Financial "Spring Cleaning"

By Jim Stiles, Edward Jones Financial Advisor in New Haven, Mo.

We’ve just about arrived at spring, the time when many people spruce up their homes, yards and other parts of their surroundings. This year, why not extend that practice a little further and give your financial and investment environment a good “spring cleaning”?

Here are a few suggestions for doing just that:

Reduce duplication. If you’ve ever worked to “de-clutter” your home, you may have discovered a lot of extraneous items. Did you really need three blenders? Did you have more remote control devices than you did televisions? As you look through your investment portfolio, you might also find some duplication, perhaps in the form of multiple stocks of companies in the same industry. You might want to consider whether you’d be better off by reducing this concentration and using the proceeds to broaden your investment mix to create new potential for growth, income or a combination of both.

Public Service Announcement - Call Before You Burn

By Kyle Quick

While the Missouri Department of Natural Resources has an open burn period between September 16th and April 14th, residents of Franklin County are asked to contact Franklin County’s 911 Center before burning. (Note: Some Fire Departments have established additional regulations.  See additional information below.)

The purpose behind Calling Before You Burn is to prevent fire departments from unnecessarily being dispatched because someone who is simply driving by calls 911. 

By taking two minutes to call first, then 911 dispatchers will already know of the location where a control burn is taking place.
