These 10 ideas will help you proactively take control of your money so you feel like you’re making steady progress toward greater financial security.1. Choose a better bank. Are you constantly paying fees for using out-of-network ATMs or running out of cash when you’re on the road? Now is the time to find a bank that better fits your needs. Comparison information on sites such as FindABetterBank.com or Bankrate.com can make it easy to compare options and interest rates. Larger banks tend to offer more ATMs for frequent travelers while smaller banks and credit unions might be less convenient but offer lower fees. If you have a large amount in cash, then you might want to consider a tool like MaxMyInterest.com, which helps users optimize the returns that they earn through FDIC-insured bank accounts.2. Upgrade your credit card. Many people use credit cards that aren’t matched to their needs, which means they pay too much in fees or miss out on rewards. If you carry debt, you’ll want to find a card with the lowest fee possible, but those without debt can maximize their rewards. Comparison sites such as IndexCreditCards.com and CreditCards.com make it easy to search for the right fit. continue reading »
CONKLIN (WBNG) – The Susquehanna Valley girls basketball team is beginning to prepare for a season that is expected to begin January 4. “As long as we are still able to play its worth it,” said Hogan. For sophomore Brynn Hogan and junior Kaelyn Roloson, they are excited to be back on the court in any way possible. On the court it’s a whole new ballgame having to wear a mask for the entirety of practice. “For us it’s awesome, it’s been a really long seven months without basketball,” said head coach Chad Freije. “To finally be back playing basketball it’s a great feeling. Something we all needed and missed a little bit.” Today, state officials gave low and moderate risk sports the green light to begin. High-risk sports, including basketball have not been cleared by the state. For coach Freije, his first goal for offseason workouts is about getting his team back in shape. “I like it even though it’s a lot at once but it’s good to get back,” said Roloson. “They have them on different days so it’s been pretty easy to juggle them all,” said Hogan. Both girls are three sport athletes which presents a new challenge this school year. They are adjusting to a new schedule, with practice for all three sports during the week. With games hopefully right around the corner, the Sabers are doing whatever they have to do. “We’re trying to ease them back in for some of the drills and conditioning to get them where they need to be come January 4th,” said Freije. “We’re adapting to it, we are just glad we can be here,” said Roloson.
