news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:

Sertoman of the Day:   Jim Rees was born in Springfield, Illinois on 14 June 1933, but was raised in Bloomington. He went to the Univ. of Illinois for 4-1/2 years. While there he got a draft notice and because he was in the Air Force ROTC program he was allowed to continue provided he graduated, otherwise the Army had a rifle for him. Graduated and in May of 1956, started pilot training in Arizona. Shortly after finishing that part of his training, the Air Force closed the base. Two days after receiving his wings he married Jo in Fort Worth, Texas. The balance of his flight training was at Goodfellow AFB it was closed to major flight operations. In Sacramento he flew RC-121 radar planes.

He left the service in July 1960 and went to work for Underwood-Olivetti and in 1962 moved to Denver for 6 months then to Colorado Springs as branch manager. They closed that office and he moved back to Denver to work for Xerox, then was transferred to Houston as a manager. During which time McClellan AFB in Sacramento was closed to major flying operations. He moved back to Denver in June of 1969 and got into real estate with a couple of former Xerox friends, then went out on his own and has been since 1975.

Jim and Jo have been married for 54 years; have 2 children, a son and daughter and several grandkids. Jim was brought into the club my Bob Stein on Feb. 2005, sat on most chairs and was a President. Listen to Jim Rees.mp3

rogram:  Bob Schlageter introduced Peter Lengsfeld from Presidential Brokerage Inc. Peter came today to talk about Financial Hurdles in Retirement.

Peter, along with his helper Tobias, had a paper version of a power point slide show that was passed out to all to follow along as Peter described all the charts and things. The title of his presentation was “Is Your Financial Planning Robbing You Of Your Wealth and delt with how inflation may be eating up more of your retirement than you had planned on.

The Fourth Edition of the American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language defines inflation as, "A persistent increase in the level of consumer prices or a persistent decline in the purchasing power of money, caused by an increase in available currency and credit beyond the proportion of available goods and services." Basically, inflation makes goods and services more expensive and decreases the value of your money.
When you are working – your wages generally rise as the costs of goods and services increase. Your earnings "keep pace with inflation", so normal inflation is not generally a big concern. However, when you are living off of savings – inflation literally robs you of income.
Most people underestimate the impact inflation will have on their retirement plans. Even at relatively low rates, inflation is a real thief of buying power over time. Most experts feel safe recommending that individuals calculate their retirement needs using a 3 percent inflation rate. But, it is important to understand that we have seen (as in the late seventies and early eighties) sustained inflation rates of around 10 percent! (
