    An Illinois priest accused of patronizing a male prostitute in the 1990s and misappropriating $40,000 from a parish in 2005 has now been removed from ministry for “immoral activity” that could involve child pornography, and allegedly misspending up to $29,000 at two parishes he oversaw in the Diocese of Springfield. The Rev. Barry J. Harmon, 55, was removed from ministry and will apply for laicization, Springfield Bishop Thomas J. Paprocki wrote in a Sept. 5 email to diocesan priests. Harmon has agreed to make restitution for the misappropriated funds, Paprocki said. Harmon was initially placed on medical leave Oct. 30,...

    he forensic psychiatrist who assisted in the investigations into the death of American child beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey has been shot dead outside his office. Dr. Steven Pitt, 59, helped investigate the high profile 1996 murder case as well as a string of other killings in the Phoenix area more than a decade ago. In JonBenet’s case Pitt believed the pineapple found in the six-year-old’s digestive tract, which her mother denied she ate, was proof of a family cover up. He was leaving his office when witnesses say they heard a loud argument then gunfire as he was shot on...

    truth revolt ^ | 4/11/16 | Trey Sanchez
    On a recent broadcast, personal financial adviser and radio talk show host Dave Ramsey talked about the Millennial generation and their bent towards socialism and the support of Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders. Ramsey read from a Washington Post article titled, "Millennials like socialism — until they get jobs." For his rant, Ramsey amended that title a bit: "Millennials like socialism — until they have to pay for it." After reading through the statistics from the article written by the Cato Institute's Emily Ekins showing that Millennials view socialism less favorably as they age and begin to earn higher wages, Ramsey...

    Police in northern Kentucky have released dash-cam footage from the scene where a deputy shot a 19-year-old woman to death as she left an outdoor party in her car over the weekend. The footage, shot from inside Boone County Sheriff Deputy Tyler Brockman's cruiser, does not show Brockman firing four bullets through Samantha Ramsey's windshield after she alleged rammed him on a road outside Hebron early Saturday. It only shows Brockman approaching Ramsey's car and her appearing to drive away. Moments later, a plume of smoke enters the frame and bystanders can be seen weeping in horror. Boone County authorities...

He has taught Americans that credit is not the beautiful thing that banks and credit card companies have tried to make it out to be. He has taught Americans that spending more than you make is never a good idea. He has taught Americans that now is always the right time to fix your spending habits and get your financial house in order. A few days ago, Mr. Ramsey decided to share his wisdom with people of all political affiliations on how the Obamacare legislation would affect...

    Dear Dave, My grandfather died about a month ago, and I recently learned that in his will he distributed his money unevenly between his children and grandchildren. I received significantly more than other members of the family, but I make $140,000 a year. I’d like to give them some of my inheritance to even things out. How would you approach this? Kate Dear Kate, You’re obviously unselfish and have a really good heart. But honestly, it was your grandfather’s decision and his money to do with as he pleased. It wouldn’t be wrong or greedy to simply keep what you...

    Dear Dave, My parents have always had financial problems, and they recently lost their home. They have a place to live, but since that time my father has been asking me for money. He calls me over to talk about this when my mother isn’t there and my husband isn’t home. He’s even asked for half of a $150,000 inheritance I received from my grandparents. He’s really making me feel guilty, and I’m not sure what to do. Elena Dear Elena, Your brain knows what to do, but your heart is having a hard time doing it. Your father is...

    Dear Dave, My son has a $115,000 mortgage at 5.8 percent. He also has a home equity line of credit of $40,000 at 9 percent. Currently, he can get a 30-year loan at 3.5 percent, or a 15-year note at 2.75 percent. His take-home pay is between $70,000 and $80,000 a year, and these are his only debts. Should he combine the mortgages into one loan? Daniel Dear Daniel, First, I only recommend mortgages of 15 years or less. Now we’re looking at a 2.75 percent loan versus a 5.8 percent loan versus a 9 percent loan. I advise people...

    Dear Dave, My husband and I have been following your plan, and we’re debt-free. Recently he invited his sister, her husband and their two kids to live with us. His brother-in-law recently lost his job, and he did this without talking to me first. I agreed after the fact, but do you think we need a roommate agreement or some kind of understanding while they stay with us? They have about $70,000 in debt, and they haven’t been very responsible with their money. Amanda Dear Amanda, I’ve got to tell you there’s zero chance that my wife or I would...

    Dear Dave, Is it okay to pay two employees who do the same jobs different salaries? Eric Dear Eric, Sure, it’s okay. Fair isn’t always equal, and equal isn’t always fair. There are no two people on earth who do the same, exact jobs with the same, exact levels of competency and precision. Here’s a more detailed example. Let’s say I had two personal assistants within my organization. Both of them worked as assistants to vice presidents, but one has been on my team for 10 years and is the assistant to someone whose department is very large and profitable....

    Dear Dave, I borrowed $30,000 from my aunt to buy a condo eight years ago. We had a deal that she would get her money back, plus a piece of the profits, when it sold. If there were no profits, she would get back her original $30,000. Recently the condo sold and I lost the money I put into it, plus my aunt’s money as well. I make good money and don’t have any other debt, but I’m a little resentful now that she wants me to pay her back. Do you have any suggestions? Christine Dear Christine, I don’t...

    The bird feeder in Alfred and Annette Rockefeller's back yard attracts five different species of birds. A Ramsey couple are facing up to $500 in fines for their bird feeder, above, which has drawn complaints from neighbors. The borough has an ordinance against feeding wildlife, and an official said the feeder draws other animals. It has also drawn the attention of borough officials, who issued the couple a summons for feeding wildlife after receiving complaints from neighbors. Alfred Rockefeller, 77, who is disabled and homebound, said feeding the birds is one of his few joys since he became confined to...

    Dear Dave, I live outside Houston with my wife and our 9-month-old daughter. I’ve received a job offer from a company on the other side of the city that would pay, with bonuses, $25,000 a year more than I’m currently making. This would require moving to a new house and away from our extended family. My wife wants to move because my mom can be a little overbearing. I understand how she feels, but I’m not certain I want to move or take a new job. What’s your advice? David Dear David, I’m not so sure this is a job...

    I listen to you often and enjoy your radio show, but why don’t you ever ask women to go to work? When a family is broke, and the woman is at home raising one child who is already in the fifth grade, why can’t the wife get a “second job?” George Dear George, I think far too many ladies, in the name of paying for stuff they don’t need, have left the household and the children for the workplace. Many of them didn’t even want to do this; they just felt obligated to do it by people like you. There...

    Dear Dave, Can you please define “necessities” in today’s world while trying to get out of debt and live on a budget? Matthew Dear Matthew, Whether you’re talking about the world today or 50 years ago, necessities haven’t changed. Necessities are still food, shelter, clothing, transportation and utilities. We’re talking about needs versus wants. The problem is that many people were never taught that there’s a difference between the two—a big difference. Most people have enough food to eat and a decent place to live. Those are necessities. I’m not talking about eating out or having a big, fancy house....

I want to go back to work, but emotionally part of me feels like I should stay home with our 2-year-old daughter. What do you think? Kayla Dear Kayla, I understand the feelings involved, especially if you’ve spent all of your time home with your child. But don’t make the mistake of blaming the debt if you simply want to go back to work. You’re not a bad person if you...

Do you have any suggestions to help me move forward? Meryl      Dear Meryl, The first thing I want you to do is raise your right hand and promise never to use credit cardsagain. Then, if you still have any of those awful things, I want you to cut them up and close out the accounts. The next step is for you to find some kind of income, whether it’s...
