    Affordable Retirement Is Not an Oxymoron
    Baby boomers, for a lot of good reasons, are really worried about retirement. Will they be able to make that transition, and how will they ever afford to retire in the style to which they have become accustomed?  This article explores affordable retirement lifestyles, strategies, and locations; all to help you get the quality retirement you deserve.

    Here's an interesting North Carolina town with a very low profile. As a former river port, Tarboro boasts a 45 block area of historic homes that was created by the National Park Service. Home prices are very reasonable - the median is below $100,000.
    The Senate has taken on the task of checking on the financial health of the Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) industry. Their findings recommend that, given the risks confronting the industry, the states should be more cautious in regulating CCRCs, and consumers should retain lawyers to help them understand their protections.

     Dalhonega, GA
