Park Service seeks comments about key elements of Lake Mead

The National Park Service is in the process of preparing a foundation document for Lake Mead National Recreation Area and is seeking public input. A foundation document involves revisiting a national park’s core mission and significance, most important resources and values, and the interpretive themes that tell that park’s important stories.

It is not a decision-making document and does not include actions or management strategies. Instead, it describes a shared understanding of what is most important about the park. The final document will re-establish the underlying guidance for future management and planning decisions.

Comments and recommendations regarding the foundation document will be accepted through Feb. 18. They may be submitted by mail to Lake Mead National Recreation Area, Foundation Document Comments, 601 Nevada Way, Boulder City, NV 89005 or online at http://bit.ly/1KlAcTh.

Seniors need to be wary of investment ‘plans’

Because many seniors find themselves planning for retirement and managing their savings once they finish working, a number of investment schemes have targeted them as they look to safeguard their cash for their later years. From pyramid schemes like Bernie Madoff’s to fables of a Nigerian prince looking for a partner to claim inheritance money and complex financial products that many economists don’t even understand, investment schemes have long been a successful way to take advantage of older people.
