What it costs to borrow on life insurance

All life insurance policies, except term insurance, build up a cash-surrender value after a year or two. While other interest rates have risen recently, most insurance contracts stipulate that you can borrow up to 100 per cent of your current cash value at a rate of 5 per cent. There are a few policies that set the rate at 6 per cent. On GI policies, it's 4 per cent.

A bill of rights-and wrongs-for baby-sitting

The secret of a good relationship between baby sitter and parent is that they both know what to expect from each other.

CENTENNIAL TOUR OF THE CIVIL WAR

IT was an intimately known war. We know where the first Union soldier was killed at Gettysburg and his name-- Private George W. Sandoe.
