MSN Money reports that academic analysts say we may be running out of money. The United States Social Security Administration (SSA) has been using "outdated calculations and severely overestimated the money available for retirees," says the report. The analysis was conducted by Samir Soneji, a demographer and professor at the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, and Gary King, a professor of government at Harvard, according to the MSN report. The two say the government has "grossly underestimated the money it needs for retiring Americans to the tune of $800 billion by 2031, more than the current annual defense budget." They say that something must change immediately to save the system. "And if nothing is done," they…

Southampton’s own Tom Magill was on an episode of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" last April. Magill didn’t win a million bucks, but had an unforgettable experience.
Countless crossword puzzles, trivia and TV game shows, TV biographies, books and conversations in bars with random “smart people” prepared Tom Magill for the ultimate trivia junkie’s dream: a spot as a contestant on "Who Wants To Be a Millionaire." “I watched [the show] for a long time and I sat there and answered all the questions,” said Magill, 64. “My wife and my mother-in-law said, ‘why don’t you go on the show and put your money where your mouth is?’ ” So Magill did just that in May 2010.

Trying out for the shows, he said, is simple, but not as people imagine it. There were about 12 people in line when he …

This is the first year of a new $3 general admissions fee rather than a $7 fee for fireworks and residents seem to be fine with the change.
Instead of a $7 fee to plant themselves smack dab in the middle of Klinger Middle School’s parking lot for a prime firework gazing spot, all who wished to enter the gated-off Southampton Days fairgrounds had to pay a $3 fee — firework gazers or not. According Southampton Days Committee Chairman Patrick Miller the reason why boiled down to two things: to see if a price reduction would rope in more attendees and the fact that Northampton Township is now enforcing charges for the event. Northampton Township is charging approximately $3,500 for the usage of their police department and public works, Miller said. Although Southampton Days is in Upper Southampton Township, Northampton Township barricades Bristol Rd. because there are several …

Luci talks to a reader about planning for their financial future.
Dear Luci, The hubby and I have been talking about finances, investing, etc. We each have 401ks for retirement, and a several month "safety net" for now, but it's a daunting task to start deciding what to do with savings. Should we try on our own? Put in back into fixing up the house? Interview financial advisors? We're not sure where to start. Sincerely, Saving in Southampton Dear Saving, No matter how much they make, most of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck. Yet you and your husband have somehow managed to get ahead. Nice work! Now let me say this. I am not a financial expert. However, I will gladly share what I have learned from the so called “wealthy folks,” and my favorite financial guru, Dave Ramsey. Before you start any …
